If we do not score here , we will lose.
Bet that’s a sweet crystal ball you have there.
Agreed. And if it’s 2-2 with Lee going tomorrow…we are completely fucked.
Posada only had 1 finger that inning until the hr.
I CANNOT believe that just happened…..
Lidge is in.
This is the time.
I still think besides going to Mo(which most managers won’t do), going to Joba was the right move.
Cant just throw it hard down the middle… if you do your name is Daniel Bard
We throw 5 sliders to Chase Utley… and a fastball on a guy who can barely hold his check swing on the previous sliders?
Well, at least it’s Brad Lidge.
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
BRAD LIDGE!? YES.
If game is tied, do we bring in Hughes in bottom 9th?
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.
Losing this game would hurt so bad. So many blown opportunities.
It would be so fitting if Lidge gave it up here.
Lets get some runs! Please! I’m going crazy here!
Let’s do the damn thing
Fuck Brad Lidge, the Yankees will gnaw on his bones.
I wonder if using Mo unnecessarily last night is what prevented Girardi from using him in the 8th tonight.
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
We get beat by all these wack hitters. Just overlook them, it’s a trap!
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.
I’ve been waiting for this moment. Lidge gonna get rocked.
So i was a little worried, but now that I see Brad Lidge I know everything’s gonna be ok.
Oh shut up and get out of here. No one needs idiots like you around.
Why is that?
You should go away until you learn how the World Series works.
That was a pitch to hit, Matsui.
I don’t know what Matsui is looking for. Right down the middle.
2 outs, 2 strikes on Utley, 2 outs 2 strikes on Feliz. God damn.
Ugh, Hideki of all the the pitches to swing at…
who pitches the 9th
rivera. we will have a lead
im thinking hughes
my heart cant take too much more of this tonight, please score now
Those sliders that Joba bounced were the undoing… Feliz was sitting fastball…
Can somebody tell the Yankees to fucking swing at fastballs right down the middle please??
They making lidge look like mariano.
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.
Wait, we can’t beat Lee?
They haven’t played tomorrow yet.
Automatically assuming a loss to Lee is just goofy.
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.
Melky’s injury is pretty big in spots like this. Can’t PR Gardy.
matsui had to get on for that to be relevant
RAB loaded REALLY slowly when I typed that. He was hitting at that point.
Let’s do this SHIETT!!!!!! DROP his non-MO ass to the floor and make him cry!
Please score some runs.
Please. Please. Please
Is that another Buckism?
“Spoils the pitch”
Nice pitch there by Lidge.
WTF was jeter swinging at?
A pretty wicked slider.
I have a bad feeling about this game now.
He was doing great. Just missed his spot and with his velocity it can go out.
lidge never has 1-2-3 innings, even in his prime
yet we’re going that route
And of course Lidge is going to dominate us. This offense is terrible.
Short memory, I see.
You only crawl out of your hidey-hole when things aren’t looking good, eh?
Yeah, everyone just needs to not respond to him.
Lord help us
He wasn’t going to throw a strike with the slider so why swing at anything low?
I want to hear Citizens Bank as quiet as Minute Maid was a few years ago. Its all on you Johnny.
go back and look..jorge called for low and away…joba just missed his spot.
Fuck this offense.
ugh. Gotta tattoo Lidge for the basketcase he is. Get him shaky and put the nail in.
why is coke going to pitch the 9th?
Those were 2 awesome AB’s right there.
pedro feliz has a .694 ops. There is no god. And if there is a god, he’s a dick.
feliz = mathis = punto
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.
Its the legend of Pedro Feliz.
if we can’t answer here , the Phils will win this game.
Deciding game my ass, we lost this series a week ago.
i still think we’ll win this game or at least the series. but, to be one out away from mo and a 3-1 lead is tough to take.
Man, McCarver you suck.
coke coming in? oh god.
can this pen really hold them down another inning if they don’t score here god I hope so
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.
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.
only at home, there is still a save opportunity
Stop swinging at the slider. It’s not even close to the strikezone.
They keep swinging at the same pitch and it’s a ball every time.
If Coke pitches the 9th I think im going to have flashbacks of 2003 thanks to Joe Torre and Jeff Weaver.
exactly what i was thinking
Where’s TSJC when you need him?
…why do you need him?
Superstition is dumb.
“Lidge’s slider is so good, it’s often in the dirt…”
They say great pitching beats great hitting. Um, really….Cmon Damon do something other than make an out.
Not like he’s had a good game tonight.
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.
Joba was blowing people away. Did you see that hr coming? No.
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.
3-2 slider in the dirt right here
anything low don’t swing.
Please do not bring Phil Coke in.
Tell that to Girardi. Use some YES connections to place a call to the dugout.
he’s going to. it seems like deja vu from 03.
come on johnny, you can do this
Johnny B. Goode at-bat.
There you go Johnny. Keep it going boys.
Nice AB Damon.
There you go Johnny, great at-bat.
Now more than ever, Tex.

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

Heads up Damon.
Now please Tex, stop choking.
YES. Come on Tex, just flick one into the outfield.
DAMON IS A GOD.
LOL!!!! Holy shit! Heads-up!!!
holy shit that was brilliant
Wow. Wow. Absurd.
That’s fucking heads up.
The slider in the dirt can score Johnny
I was like “what is he doing?” Wow, JD!
Why not Coke? Who do you trust out of there really?
Holy shit at first I was like WTF is Damon doing!!
Heads up play!!!
I almost was about to kill myself.
Heads up play JD !!
Bring him home Teix.
fucking heads up play, damn risky though jeez
Alright Tex time to make up for your crappy hitting… single single single single.
i was like “what the fuck is damon doing.”. a wild pitch here would be funniest shit in a lifetime.
Tex has to stop choking now.
come on boys, do it here
Well, that’s what the shift does I guess. Please Mark, please get a hit.
Now would be a good time for a hit. Please. Please.
please mark. please!
Come on Tex. We need you here man. Do this.
AJ will hit someone tomorrow night.
Alright, Alex – this is what you’ve been waiting for your entire career. DO IT!
Pass the baton, any way you can…
trow him out lol
another yankee gets plunked
A-Rod. A-Rod. A-Rod.
If Arod can rip a single here … he will become a Yankee IMMORTAL.
I’m sorry but technically shouldn’t that be an ejection since they warned them.
They have discretion, you know.
Now it’s all up to A-Rod. He has to snap out of this WS funk.
What the fuck?
Motherfucker! Another one of our guys gets hit! What the hell is this shit?
The win will be ours. Karma is a bitch.
come on A-Rod make them PAY !!!!
And of course it comes down to A-Rod. Time to make them pay for all those HBPs.
Fuck, c’mon ARod… you just need a single, shorten the swing and get us the lead.
ARod needs to sit fastball ….slider is never a strike
The return of Clutch-God? Pretty please?
Please. Please. Please
A Pujols-esque moment is upon us.
YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He’s so UNCLUTCH!
ALEX RODRIGUEZ!!!! OMFG!
Oh shit I love it!
SUPER MOTHERFUCKING CLUTCH-ROD!!!!
HE DID IT. AND THE SANDMAN DOTH APPROACH.
ALEX!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
way to bail Joba and Girardi out
That’s our boy!
that’s our BOY!
Amazing. He’s not human.
Someone please tell me what happened, aside from ‘awesome.’
That had defining moment written all over it. WOW!
You people need to have faith.
YEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!! GO CENTAUR!!!!
SUCK THAT SHIT.
YES YES YES YES YES YES……..CENTAUR
Thank you A-Rod!
I’M IN LOVE !!!!!
A-Rod = Pujols
Lidge still = Lidge
Hell Yes! Oh, JD! Man, A-Rod way to go!

He just missed putting that 50 rows deep.
I love everyone here!!!!!!!!! (except Lanny)
I love that stat-padding SOB!!!!

Nice… single Jorge gets 2 more, c’mon
I LOVE YOU A-GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Huge props to Damon.
You know Buck is right. Give Damon props.
I LOVE ALEX RODRIGUEZ!
More run, please.
Just a hit, Jorge… Just one!
So, this kills the “A-Rod is a choker” articles, huh?
No. They’ll never stop.
Need a hit here now Posada. You have been all kinds of shitty tonight.
ALL HAIL A-ROD MAY HE LIVE FOREVER OUR ETERNAL POSTSEASON WARRIOR KING
So I told my friend “i fucking told you so!”
Mo’s pissed, he’s supposed to rest on the seventh day.
28 pitches for Lidge.
I pray to Mo that Mo be Mo.
Arod is clutch!
Add Po, Add!
There’s 2009 Lidge. Nice try Fox for making it seem he’s back.
Joba owes A-Rod and Damon some turns with his wife. And a steak dinner.
joba is not married
I want more
Jesus Christ I just scared the hell out of everyone within earshot.
joe buck and carver got quiet
Damon’s double steal is amazing…and then there is…even more amazing…right behind….
LOL, Lidge is most definitely still LIDGE!!!
I LOVE THIS TEAM.
THAT IS THE BALLGAME.
THANK YOU JOPO!! THANK YOU!!
YES, 2 MORE.
SUCK ON THAT, PHILLY
God I love this team.
And the Lidge meltdown is complete.
Game. Set. Match.
The haters go away.
FUCKING AAAAAAAA !!
We got the INSURANCE RUNS BABY !
go posada, we better not need that baserunner though
Brad Lidge should be on suicide watch today.
i fucking love dis teammmmmmmmmmm
How is Jorge out by that much? Was he using a walker to get around the bases?
Damon’s heads up play, biggest of the series.
I know I should be mad at Jorge for that base running, but I honestly don’t give a shit right now.
Thank Damon for that inning
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!!!
That… made my heart sing.
Jorge wanted two RBIs there.
Never give up on this team. Never.
Poor Brad Lidge. I like how cute everyone got with the “Brad Lidge is BACK” junk. Ha!
