World Series Game Four Spillover Thread VI

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs


  1. Reggie C. says:

    If we do not score here , we will lose.

  2. Jake H says:

    Posada only had 1 finger that inning until the hr.

  3. Derby says:

    I CANNOT believe that just happened…..

  4. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Lidge is in.

    This is the time.

  5. Mike Pop says:

    I still think besides going to Mo(which most managers won’t do), going to Joba was the right move.

  6. G FUnk says:

    Cant just throw it hard down the middle… if you do your name is Daniel Bard

  7. JSquared says:

    We throw 5 sliders to Chase Utley… and a fastball on a guy who can barely hold his check swing on the previous sliders?

  8. GK says:

    Well, at least it’s Brad Lidge.

  9. Joe D. says:

    Man, what a frustrating inning. Part of me would rather he didn’t have it and gave up that run. But watching him dominate with so many swings and misses makes that sucker even more painful.

    As far as I’m concerned, that’s a positive inning for Joba.

    /Ducking and running like hell

  10. Evil Empire says:


  11. nathan says:

    If game is tied, do we bring in Hughes in bottom 9th?

  12. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, he was sitting fuckin dead red. Everyone knew a FB was coming. And he got one on the inner half, which he loves.

    Please blow it Lidge.

  13. Accent Shallow says:

    Losing this game would hurt so bad. So many blown opportunities.

    It would be so fitting if Lidge gave it up here.

  14. Brian says:

    Lets get some runs! Please! I’m going crazy here!

  15. Souter Fell says:

    Let’s do the damn thing

  16. Doug says:

    Fuck Brad Lidge, the Yankees will gnaw on his bones.

  17. BigBlueAL says:

    I wonder if using Mo unnecessarily last night is what prevented Girardi from using him in the 8th tonight.

    • nathan says:

      Ah but that was a win in the books.. we had to hose down the sparks before a fire started.. that was the right move

  18. Mike Pop says:

    We get beat by all these wack hitters. Just overlook them, it’s a trap!

  19. Jobamania says:

    well those 2 strike homers are really killing us, how many have we given up already?

    joba still has the problem of wasting pitches
    he was in a great count till he basically threw 2 garbage curveballs like 10 feet outside bringing the count to full.

    if he had done the same thing he did with werth and ibanez he was out of that inning easy. he needed to go up the ladder, instead he threw middle in.

    i loved the velocity though and i still like him in the 8th over hughes.

  20. Evil Empire says:

    I’ve been waiting for this moment. Lidge gonna get rocked.

  21. Frigidevil says:

    So i was a little worried, but now that I see Brad Lidge I know everything’s gonna be ok.

  22. dalelama says:

    Series over…..

  23. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    That was a pitch to hit, Matsui.

  24. Jake H says:

    I don’t know what Matsui is looking for. Right down the middle.

  25. Hova says:

    2 outs, 2 strikes on Utley, 2 outs 2 strikes on Feliz. God damn.

  26. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Ugh, Hideki of all the the pitches to swing at…

  27. Souter Fell says:

    who pitches the 9th

  28. DGeezy says:

    my heart cant take too much more of this tonight, please score now

  29. BronxBomber44 says:

    Those sliders that Joba bounced were the undoing… Feliz was sitting fastball…

  30. Jay says:

    Can somebody tell the Yankees to fucking swing at fastballs right down the middle please??

  31. Henry Triana says:

    They making lidge look like mariano.

  32. Brazilian Yankee says:

    If we end up losing this game we are looking at a 3-2 hole going back to NY and putting our season on Pettitte’s hand on 3 days rest. Not looking good.

  33. crapula says:

    Whenever we say we’re going to tee off on some pitcher, we tend to not do exactly that. Blanton v. Sabathia should have been a cakewalk.

  34. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Melky’s injury is pretty big in spots like this. Can’t PR Gardy.

  35. ShuutoHeat says:

    Let’s do this SHIETT!!!!!! DROP his non-MO ass to the floor and make him cry!

  36. PsiFighter37 says:

    Please score some runs.

  37. Dave G says:

    Please. Please. Please

  38. Jay says:

    Is that another Buckism?

    “Spoils the pitch”


  39. JMK aka The Overshare says:


  40. Mike Pop says:

    Nice pitch there by Lidge.

    Very nasty.

  41. Henry Triana says:

    WTF was jeter swinging at?

  42. PsiFighter37 says:


    I have a bad feeling about this game now.

    Fucking Joba.

  43. Jobamania says:

    lidge never has 1-2-3 innings, even in his prime
    yet we’re going that route

  44. Brazilian Yankee says:

    And of course Lidge is going to dominate us. This offense is terrible.

  45. Dave G says:

    Lord help us

  46. Jake H says:

    He wasn’t going to throw a strike with the slider so why swing at anything low?

  47. Yanks 4 Life says:


  48. Hova says:

    I want to hear Citizens Bank as quiet as Minute Maid was a few years ago. Its all on you Johnny.

  49. paulc says:

    go back and look..jorge called for low and away…joba just missed his spot.

  50. charlespoet says:

    Fuck this offense.

  51. theriverdog says:

    ugh. Gotta tattoo Lidge for the basketcase he is. Get him shaky and put the nail in.

  52. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Phil Coke?

  53. aa says:

    why is coke going to pitch the 9th?

  54. trueblue says:

    Those were 2 awesome AB’s right there.

  55. JackHammer says:

    pedro feliz has a .694 ops. There is no god. And if there is a god, he’s a dick.

  56. Josh says:

    You guys know the game is still tied, right? Jesus Christ you would think this was the deciding game of the series and they were down by 12 runs.

  57. Mike Pop says:

    Man, McCarver you suck.

  58. Jobamania says:

    coke coming in? oh god.

  59. cjc says:

    can this pen really hold them down another inning if they don’t score here god I hope so

  60. theriverdog says:

    Also, what the hell is wrong with you guys?
    Yeah Lee pitches tomorrow but he isnt guaranteed to turn water into wine for christ’s sake. This series isnt over, neither is this game for that matter.

    Knuckle up.

  61. crapula says:

    I thought that if the game is tied in the 9th you go to your closer. WTF is wrong with Mo? I don’t like this.

  62. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Stop swinging at the slider. It’s not even close to the strikezone.

  63. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    They keep swinging at the same pitch and it’s a ball every time.

  64. aa says:

    If Coke pitches the 9th I think im going to have flashbacks of 2003 thanks to Joe Torre and Jeff Weaver.

  65. Salty Buggah says:

    Where’s TSJC when you need him?

  66. ShuutoHeat says:

    “Lidge’s slider is so good, it’s often in the dirt…”


  67. charlespoet says:

    They say great pitching beats great hitting. Um, really….Cmon Damon do something other than make an out.

  68. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Of all the games that screamed for more than 3 outs from Mariano, this screamed the loudest. Why are we fucking managing for tomorrow when this is the pivotal game? We win this and we’re golden, lose and we’re in trouble. THIS WAS THE GAME. Leaving mo in the pen is a disgrace.

    • slappy white says:


    • Jim says:

      Joba was blowing people away. Did you see that hr coming? No.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

        You’re right. I didn’t. And Joba did look good. But he’s not Mariano. Mariano does not give up home runs, especially not to Pedro Feliz. The only reason he wasn’t in the game is that Girardi was trying to leave some in the tank for tomorrow. And that is wrong. Tomorrow should not be on our radar at all when we have chance to go for the kill and back them into a huge corner. I don’t care who the pitcher is-nobody’s Mo.

  69. cjc says:

    3-2 slider in the dirt right here

  70. Jake H says:

    anything low don’t swing.

  71. Mike Axisa says:

    Please do not bring Phil Coke in.

  72. Souter Fell says:

    come on johnny, you can do this

  73. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    Johnny B. Goode at-bat.

  74. Jersey says:

    There you go Johnny. Keep it going boys.

  75. Dave G says:

    OK Johnny

  76. ShuutoHeat says:

    Nice AB Damon.

  77. Mike Axisa says:

    There you go Johnny, great at-bat.

  78. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Now more than ever, Tex.

    This is your moment.

  79. PsiFighter37 says:

    There we go. Now C’MON MARK, earn your paycheck.

  80. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    C’mon Teix.

  81. Mike Pop says:

    You people irritate me.

  82. fscott19 says:

    let’s go tex.

  83. Marcus says:

    Time for a Tex Message.

  84. Riddering says:

    Nice job, Johnny.

    Let’s go Tex!

  85. theriverdog says:

    here we go. Get some, Tex!

  86. Accent Shallow says:

    Alright, up to Tex. Time to break out of that slump.

  87. slappy white says:

    Tex homers here

  88. DGeezy says:

    nice job johnny, alright tex your time now, deliver for us

  89. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Finally a good AB. That took a while, but it’s nice to see that they still know how to hit.

  90. Jay says:

    Cmon Tex! DO IT NOW!!!

  91. Tom Zig says:

    Tex now is a good time to come through

  92. Souter Fell says:

    big tex if there was ever a time…

  93. cjc says:

    come on Tex you can do it

  94. Evil Empire says:

    Go DAMON. We need an extra base hit…NOW

  95. C says:

    Great AB for Damon. C’mon Tex.

  96. yankees=warriors says:

    Nice, Johnny!
    Now make up for all the lost opportunities today, Tex!

  97. Joe D. says:

    Superb AB by Damon.
    Absolutely clutch.

  98. Jake H says:

    Mark we need your big bat here. Please.

  99. Dave G says:

    The time is now Mark

  100. E-ROC says:

    20 pitches for Lidge. Awesome.

  101. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    great at-bat by johnny, who is really starting to put himself back in the convo for next year. please mark. please.

  102. PsiFighter37 says:

    Whoooooa, Johnny all the way to 3rd!

  103. NYFan50 says:

    WOW. WOW.

  108. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Ahaha what the fuck?

  109. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Haha I don’t think I’ve ever seen that.

  110. cjc says:

    big time base running

  111. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Heads up Damon.

    Now please Tex, stop choking.

  112. Evil Empire says:


  113. YES. Come on Tex, just flick one into the outfield.

  114. Riddering says:



  115. Joe D. says:

    LOL!!!! Holy shit! Heads-up!!!

  116. Frigidevil says:


  117. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    holy shit that was brilliant

  118. slappy white says:


  119. Accent Shallow says:

    Wow. Wow. Absurd.

  120. Klemy says:

    That’s fucking heads up.

  121. Dave G says:

    The slider in the dirt can score Johnny

  122. claybeez says:

    I was like “what is he doing?” Wow, JD!

  123. Mike Pop says:


  124. JPM says:

    Why not Coke? Who do you trust out of there really?

  125. BigBlueAL says:

    Holy shit at first I was like WTF is Damon doing!!

  126. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    Heads up play!!!

    I almost was about to kill myself.

  127. Reggie C. says:

    Heads up play JD !!

    Bring him home Teix.

  128. Bob C says:

    fucking heads up play, damn risky though jeez

  129. charlespoet says:

    Alright Tex time to make up for your crappy hitting… single single single single.

  130. JackHammer says:

    i was like “what the fuck is damon doing.”. a wild pitch here would be funniest shit in a lifetime.

  131. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Tex has to stop choking now.

  132. Souter Fell says:

    come on boys, do it here

  133. PsiFighter37 says:

    Well, that’s what the shift does I guess. Please Mark, please get a hit.

  134. NYFan50 says:

    Now would be a good time for a hit. Please. Please.

  135. Jake H says:

    please mark. please!

  136. Hova says:

    Come on Tex. We need you here man. Do this.

  137. Dave G says:

    OK. AROD

  138. Mike Pop says:

    AJ will hit someone tomorrow night.

  139. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Another HBP.

  140. swisher's fauxhawk says:


  141. PsiFighter37 says:

    Alright, Alex – this is what you’ve been waiting for your entire career. DO IT!

  142. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    Pass the baton, any way you can…

  143. Yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    trow him out lol

  144. Souter Fell says:

    another yankee gets plunked

  145. Jay says:

    A-Rod. A-Rod. A-Rod.

  146. Reggie C. says:

    If Arod can rip a single here … he will become a Yankee IMMORTAL.

  147. Jake H says:

    I’m sorry but technically shouldn’t that be an ejection since they warned them.

  148. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Now it’s all up to A-Rod. He has to snap out of this WS funk.

  149. yankees=warriors says:

    A-Rod time!!!

  150. Hova says:

    Motherfucker! Another one of our guys gets hit! What the hell is this shit?

    The win will be ours. Karma is a bitch.

  151. mustang says:

    come on A-Rod make them PAY !!!!

  152. Accent Shallow says:

    And of course it comes down to A-Rod. Time to make them pay for all those HBPs.

  153. charlespoet says:

    Fuck, c’mon ARod… you just need a single, shorten the swing and get us the lead.

  154. slappy white says:

    ARod needs to sit fastball ….slider is never a strike

  155. Riddering says:

    The return of Clutch-God? Pretty please?

  156. Joker, The says:

    Please God.

  182. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Just A-Rod.

  183. Mike Pop says:


    You people need to have faith.

  184. Souter Fell says:


  185. Handsome B. Wonderful says:


  186. Joe D. says:


  187. slappy white says:

  203. JobaWockeeZ says:


  204. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    Just a hit, Jorge… Just one!

  205. Accent Shallow says:

    So, this kills the “A-Rod is a choker” articles, huh?

  206. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Need a hit here now Posada. You have been all kinds of shitty tonight.

  207. Doug says:


  208. ShuutoHeat says:

    So I told my friend “i fucking told you so!”

  209. Frigidevil says:

    Mo’s pissed, he’s supposed to rest on the seventh day.

  210. E-ROC says:

    28 pitches for Lidge. :D

  211. Klemy says:

    I pray to Mo that Mo be Mo.

  212. AdamParker says:

    Arod is clutch!

  213. JobaWockeeZ says:

    There’s 2009 Lidge. Nice try Fox for making it seem he’s back.

  214. Doug says:



  215. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Joba owes A-Rod and Damon some turns with his wife. And a steak dinner.

  216. Dave G says:

    I want more

  217. Joe D. says:

    Jesus Christ I just scared the hell out of everyone within earshot.

  218. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    joe buck and carver got quiet

  219. AdamParker says:


  220. Klemy says:


  221. crapula says:

    Damon’s double steal is amazing…and then there is…even more amazing…right behind….

  222. yankees=warriors says:

    LOL, Lidge is most definitely still LIDGE!!!

  223. NYFan50 says:


  224. Brazilian Yankee says:


  225. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    Hand-urinating FTW

  226. PsiFighter37 says:

    YES, 2 MORE.


  227. Jersey says:

    YEAH JORGE!!!!!!!

    God I love this team.

  228. Jay says:

    And the Lidge meltdown is complete.

  229. Brent says:

    Game. Set. Match.

  230. Dela G says:

    Ballgame mothafuckeers

  231. Mike Pop says:

    The haters go away.

  232. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Redeemed Jorge.
    Game.Set. Blouses.

  233. Reggie C. says:


    We got the INSURANCE RUNS BABY !

  234. Souter Fell says:

    go posada, we better not need that baserunner though

  235. Henry Triana says:

    Brad Lidge should be on suicide watch today.

  236. Yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    i fucking love dis teammmmmmmmmmm

  237. Chris says:

    How is Jorge out by that much? Was he using a walker to get around the bases?

  238. charlespoet says:

    Damon’s heads up play, biggest of the series.

  239. Klemy says:

    I know I should be mad at Jorge for that base running, but I honestly don’t give a shit right now.

  240. Esteban says:

    Thank Damon for that inning

  241. Hova says:

    I love Brad Lidge!!! He accomplished my hope of seeing Citizens Bank turn into Minute Maid Park!!! You can hear a deafening silence. Thank you sir!!!

  242. Handsome B. Wonderful says:

    That… made my heart sing.

  243. Riddering says:

    Jorge wanted two RBIs there.

    Never give up on this team. Never.

  244. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Poor Brad Lidge. I like how cute everyone got with the “Brad Lidge is BACK” junk. Ha!
