World Series Game Four Spillover Thread VI

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs
  • Reggie C.

    If we do not score here , we will lose.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Bet that’s a sweet crystal ball you have there.

    • Joker, The

      Agreed. And if it’s 2-2 with Lee going tomorrow…we are completely fucked.

      • Mike Pop

        Completely untrue.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Posada only had 1 finger that inning until the hr.

  • Derby

    I CANNOT believe that just happened…..

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Lidge is in.

    This is the time.

  • Mike Pop

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

  • G FUnk

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

  • JSquared

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

  • GK

    Well, at least it’s Brad Lidge.

  • Joe D.

    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

  • Evil Empire

    BRAD LIDGE!? YES.

  • nathan

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

  • Salty Buggah

    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.

  • Accent Shallow

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

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

  • Brian

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

  • Souter Fell

    Let’s do the damn thing

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

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

  • BigBlueAL

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

    • nathan

      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

  • Mike Pop

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

  • Jobamania

    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.

  • Evil Empire

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

  • Frigidevil

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

  • dalelama

    Series over…..

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Oh shut up and get out of here. No one needs idiots like you around.

    • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

      Why is that?

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      You should go away until you learn how the World Series works.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    That was a pitch to hit, Matsui.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

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

  • Hova

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

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

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

  • Souter Fell

    who pitches the 9th

    • JGS

      rivera. we will have a lead

      • Mike Pop

        +1

    • DGeezy

      im thinking hughes

  • DGeezy

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

  • BronxBomber44

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

  • Jay

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

  • Henry Triana

    They making lidge look like mariano.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    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.

    • Mike Pop

      Wait, we can’t beat Lee?

      It’s impossible?

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      They haven’t played tomorrow yet.

    • Joe D.

      Automatically assuming a loss to Lee is just goofy.

      • Mike Pop

        Very irrational.

  • crapula

    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.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

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

    • JGS

      matsui had to get on for that to be relevant

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        RAB loaded REALLY slowly when I typed that. He was hitting at that point.

  • ShuutoHeat

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

  • PsiFighter37

    Please score some runs.

  • Dave G

    Please. Please. Please

  • Jay

    Is that another Buckism?

    “Spoils the pitch”

    WTF?

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Heartbreaking.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Oh boy.

  • Mike Pop

    Nice pitch there by Lidge.

    Very nasty.

  • Henry Triana

    WTF was jeter swinging at?

    • Marcus

      A pretty wicked slider.

  • PsiFighter37

    Sigh.

    I have a bad feeling about this game now.

    Fucking Joba.

    • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

      He was doing great. Just missed his spot and with his velocity it can go out.

  • Jobamania

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

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      Short memory, I see.

    • Joe D.

      You only crawl out of your hidey-hole when things aren’t looking good, eh?

      • Mike Pop

        Yeah, everyone just needs to not respond to him.

  • Dave G

    Lord help us

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

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

  • Yanks 4 Life

    Wow.

  • Hova

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

  • paulc

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

  • charlespoet

    Fuck this offense.

  • http://www.pinstripesplus.com theriverdog

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

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Phil Coke?

  • aa

    why is coke going to pitch the 9th?

  • trueblue

    Those were 2 awesome AB’s right there.

  • JackHammer

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

    • JGS

      feliz = mathis = punto

  • Josh

    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.

    • Mike Pop

      Pathetic.

    • Reggie C.

      Its the legend of Pedro Feliz.

      if we can’t answer here , the Phils will win this game.

    • Joe D.

      Deciding game my ass, we lost this series a week ago.

    • JackHammer

      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.

  • Mike Pop

    Man, McCarver you suck.

  • Jobamania

    coke coming in? oh god.

  • cjc

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

  • http://www.pinstripesplus.com theriverdog

    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.

  • crapula

    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.

    • Bob C

      only at home, there is still a save opportunity

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

  • JMK aka The Overshare

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

  • aa

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

    • fscott19

      exactly what i was thinking

  • Salty Buggah

    Where’s TSJC when you need him?

    • Evil Empire

      …why do you need him?

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Superstition is dumb.

  • ShuutoHeat

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

    wait..what?

  • charlespoet

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

    • Mike Pop

      Not like he’s had a good game tonight.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    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

      AGREED

    • Jim

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

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        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.

  • cjc

    3-2 slider in the dirt right here

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    anything low don’t swing.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Please do not bring Phil Coke in.

    • NYFan50

      Tell that to Girardi. Use some YES connections to place a call to the dugout. ;)

    • aa

      he’s going to. it seems like deja vu from 03.

  • Souter Fell

    come on johnny, you can do this

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

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

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

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      They have discretion, you know.

  • Brazilian Yankee

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

    • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

      What the fuck?

  • Chris

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

  • charlespoet

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

  • Klemy

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

  • Esteban

    Thank Damon for that inning

  • Hova

    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!!!

  • Handsome B. Wonderful

    That… made my heart sing.

    Jorge wanted two RBIs there.
