  1. Drew says:

    Enjoying this shit down in the Keys.

    Mo time bitches.

  2. David A says:

    5 outs! LETS DO IT.

  3. Pasqua says:

    I know it was just a few seconds, but seeing Mo run in to “Enter Sandman” got me up on my feet.

  4. AJ says:

    Here comes Mo to rock the Phils to sleep.

    5 outs away!

  5. JackISBACK says:

    By the power of Mo, we shall celebrate!

  6. Nary a mention of Howard’s dubious record.

  7. Dave G says:

    5 outs away.

  8. ansky says:

    here comes the Lord.

  9. Joe D. says:

    I love this fucking team.

  10. BigBlueAL says:

    Mo is in, congrats to the Yankees for winning the 2009 WS!!

  11. Yanks 4 Life says:

    How can Fox go to commercial when MO is entering the game?
    Fox, Caray, Buck, McCarver and Umpires will not be missed when this shit is over.

  12. Salty Buggah says:

    6 fuckin pitches only for 2 Ks!

  13. crapula says:

    How you guys doing???? (just got home!)

  14. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Congratulations to Ryan Howard for owning a WS record..1st place by himself..13 strikeouts.

  15. Chef says:

    i bet mo doesn’t even like that song… heh.

  16. Where did the 1-1 miss?!

  17. Jeremy says:

    Anything McCarver says that is not force-fed to him through his earpiece is utter garbage.

  18. Jay says:

    Strike 2! Oh wait. The Phillies are up. Ball.

  19. Jackson says:

    Holy crap that video fired me up

  20. Voice of Reason says:

    Have a seat, good sir.

  21. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Sit the F down.

  22. HolyGhostClaw says:

    Awesome video post!!!

    Just DLed it!!

    Watching this will keep me warm in the cold baseball-less nights of January and February…

  23. Tampa Yankee says:

    Werth was so over matched it wasn’t funny

  24. ricardo says:


  25. ansky says:

    4 outs to go.

  26. Reggie C. says:

    The D-BAG has been retired.

  27. slappy white says:

    4 fucking more…..I can gaurantee my neighbors are wide awake now

  28. Arman Tamzarian says:

    This is awesome

  29. Voice of Reason says:

    How appropriate is it that the best closer in history finishes all four of our wins?

  30. ansky says:

    Mo bringin the rain to wash the Phillies from our stadium.

  31. CMart says:

    How the fuck did the Phillies win 2 games?

  32. Jake H says:

    Crowd is amazing.

  33. Voice of Reason says:

    Why did they replay a ball in the other batters box?

  34. Frigidevil says:

    I beg to differ Mccarver…Damon breaks more bats. THEN God

  35. Hey Philly, Yankees ain't the Rays says:

    When is J-Roll up? I’d sure like to see him solve Rivera again in the 9th

  36. I hope Ibanez chokes on his tobacco.

  37. Voice of Reason says:

    Goosebumps, anyone?

  38. aa says:

    damnit ibanez enough!

  39. Dela G says:

    ibanez having a good AB

  40. Reggie C. says:

    Cole Hamels is asking for the ball at this very moment. He’s finally inspired!

  41. Come on, Mo. Get rid of this alien looking fuck.

  42. Mike Axisa says:

    Great at-bat by Raul.

  43. aa says:

    goddamn ibanez

  44. Vinny the Bull says:

    Give it up, Raul.

  45. Jake H says:

    He’s just barely getting to those pitches outside.

  46. Girardi out to the mound says:

    How can anyone even remotely question going to Mo here? Who cares if it is a 4 run lead. If it was a 10 run lead I would still want Mo in there to close the door.

  47. Salty Buggah says:

    Ummm Gardner WTF?

  48. JR says:

    Anybody think that Mo is really an immortal like in the Highlander? I swear he’s going to show up some time in 2056 looking the same and throwing the same unhittable cut fastball that he does at age 40.

  49. Esteban says:

    What was that Gardner

  50. PsiFighter37 says:

    WTF, why was Gardner playing so shallow?!

  51. Fuckin’ a.

    Gardner seemed a bit shallow on that, no?

  52. Voice of Reason says:

    Full credit to Ibanez. That was the best AB off Mo I’ve seen in years.

  53. aa says:

    fuckin ibanez

  54. Dela G says:

    hell of an AB by ibanez

  55. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Nice AB. Tip of the cap.

  56. YankeeScribe says:

    Why was Gardy playing so shallow?

  57. ansky says:

    man, Gardner has been a mess tonight.

  58. Bobtaco says:

    Brett, having a nice game all around.

  59. dkidd says:

    why is gardner playing so shallow?

  60. Pasqua says:

    Ummmm…why was Gardner playing so shallow with a 4-run lead?

  61. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Gardner is really having a shitty night.

  62. JackISBACK says:

    Hmmm Gardner was playing pretty shallow there for a good hitter.

  63. Jay says:

    Huh. That ball took off. It didn’t look like he hit it that hard.

  64. Reggie C. says:

    Aww shit. Ibanez friggin battled on that one.

  65. Jackson says:

    Where the f is Gardner playing? Did he forget that Ibanez is a power hitter?

  66. The Artist says:

    Good, now Rollins will be the last out

  67. PsiFighter37 says:

    Gardner is fucking terrible, he’s not even good at defense.

  68. Tampa Yankee says:

    Why was Gardner so shallow?

  69. Jake H says:

    Why was Gardner playing so shallow?

  70. aa says:

    come on mo!

  71. Brian says:

    Why the hell were they playing so shallow?

  72. pete says:

    Reactions to final out:
    McCarver: “the yankees did it the same way they’ve done it all year: pettitte, jeter, and of course mariano. [long pause]. and also matsui.”
    Buck: “And after a brutal, miserable, long six games, the world series mercifully comes to a conclusion, as the nation collectively sighs as it can finally switch back over to football.”
    Sterling: “[normal theeee yankees win thing] And you know suzyn, it’s only fitting that the game be saved by mariano rivera, and won by andy pettitte.”
    Kruk: “Phillies in 9.”

  73. Hugh Jassman says:

    Why is he pitching Feliz in?

  74. Bryan says:

    Wow that was a great AB.

  75. trueblue says:

    What the fuck is Gardner doing?

  76. Jay says:

    Guys. Remember. Hitters get more cheap, broken bat bloop hits against Mo than they do solid doubles so ease up on Gardner.

  77. Brazilian Yankee says:

    3 to go…

  78. Salty Buggah says:

    3 Mo!

  79. Reggie C. says:


  80. Dave G says:

    THREE OUTS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  81. Jake H says:

    That’s what I wanted to see. 3 more.

  82. Esteban says:

    3 more

  83. NatalMike says:

    So, who is the MVP??

  84. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Is it considered a sin to make Mo work more then he should?

  85. charlespoet says:

    i am sooo hyper right now…. 27 27 27 27 27 27

  86. slappy white says:

    3 more baby….Mos’s gotta get em 1-2-3 in the 9th so Rollins makes last out

  87. crapula says:

    Rivera is just like any other pitcher.

  88. Randy A. says:

    3 more outs.

  89. Riddering says:

    Three outs away, my friends.


  90. ansky says:

    Ibanez just delays the inevitable.

    Also, I sure am glad the Phils have solved Mo. He’s just like any other closer/eternal being.

  91. dkidd says:

    is this actually happening right now? are we really 3 outs from winning the world series? in the first year at ys3? with mo on the mound?

  92. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Not only was Gardner playing unbelievably shallow, but he managed to misplay the ball multiple times on one fly.

    I’m kind of impressed, actually.

  93. JackISBACK says:


  94. Joker, The says:

    This is it

  95. JeffB says:

    In Mo we trust…

  96. Jay says:

    I wonder how Mike Mussina feels about all of this?

  97. slappy white says:

    I just want to take this time to say , I love every one of you, hell, I love everybody….I am the HAPPIEST MAN IN THE WORLD

  98. Jackson says:

    I’m going to start spreadin’ the news to my roommates and neighbors and anyone I see walking down my block.

  99. Michael Kay says:

    I love you all

  100. crapula says:

    Paul O’Neill theory. Kinda impressive theory.

  101. Esteban says:

    I wonder how many times we’ll hear how bug the Yankees payroll is.

  102. pete says:

    do we really have to bat? i don’t feel like it

  103. JackISBACK says:

    Manuel should bring in Hamels, just to stick it to him.

  104. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Swisher, is that a batting glove in your pocket, or are you just happy to win a World Fucking Series?

    Oh, both? Great!

  105. NatalMike says:

    What a great moment!!

  106. Dave G says:

    How sweet it is I am living in Philly during this moment.

  107. Arman Tamzarian says:

    That was pretty good

  108. Mike Axisa says:

    What a play by Feliz. Stud defender.

  109. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Holy shit does that guy play a good 3B.

  110. Voice of Reason says:

    If he didn’t chew tobacco he would’a beat that one out!

  111. Salty Buggah says:

    Pad those good fielding plays cuz THATS ALL YOU GOT!

  112. pete says:

    that was fucking sick

  113. ansky says:

    nice play..who cares.

  114. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Hot damn, what a play.

  115. Esteban says:

    Wow what a play by Feliz

  116. Vinny the Bull says:


  117. Feliz is awesome at third.

  118. ShuutoHeat says:

    Buck and McCarver trying to find whatever comfort is left.

  119. Matt M. says:

    I want to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee fan

  120. Jay says:

    Buck needed something to get excited about.

    Buck just hates NY. I remember him calling that catch by David Tyree in the SB as if it was a routine catch.

    • pete says:

      i have to say, as a pats fan, that if there had been any acceptable way for that (admit it) ridiculously dominant team to go down in the superbowl, it would have been on a play like that. i was jumping out of my seat. best play i’ve ever seen in sports.

  121. crapula says:

    Lovely play but pffft.

  122. AJ says:

    Wow. If I have gained respect for any Phillies player this series (other than Utley), it’s Feliz…no bat, but they guy can filed his position.

  123. Michael says:

    It sounds like Joe Buck’s mother just died. He sounds a little sad.

    • ansky says:

      you just know their post game banter is going to be a disaster. I’m sure they’ll talk about how Pedro gave it his all and how the Phils had a great season making back to the WS. “Oh, and btw the Yankees win the World Series. Catch the NFL on FOX. Goodnight.”

  124. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    I wonder if Gardner will at least swing at the ball this AB.

  125. Voice of Reason says:

    Brett wouldn’t do any worse at the plate if he was blind and deaf.

    /Helen Keller’d

  126. crapula says:

    But we’re New York so everything is bigger here and counts more.

  127. cjc says:

    Gardner is amazing and by amazing I mean terrible

  128. Dave G says:

    Thank you everyone at RAB for a fantastic resource. Great job!!!!!!!

  129. Tony says:

    That Damon/Melky shot was weird.

    Gardner: “I STILL STANDIN’, MANG!”

  130. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I swear Gardner really flies.

  131. ansky says:

    Wow…did Gardner just make contact?

  132. pete says:

    gardner almost beat that out lmfao

  133. Jay says:

    How fucking AWESOME would it be for Jimmy Rollins to make the last out??

  134. i would jjust like to say:


  135. Doug says:

    Well, at least Gardy took the bat off his shoulder that time.

  136. Salty Buggah says:

    What is that music they play in the background for that moment of the game?

  137. slappy white says:

    OH my MO , Charlie. We are ready to celebrate

  138. Hey, look at that, Gardner made contact.

  139. Lucas A. says:

    WOW was that close at first base.

  140. NatalMike says:

    Phillies sink back into obscurity for another 50 years

  141. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Jimmy Rollins MUST be the last out.
    Phillies in 5? HAHA!
    At least give the Yanks some respect.

  142. Tank Foster says:

    Please, Rollins for out #27

  143. another steve says:

    thank you RAB for the awesome coverage, I’ve probably never posted more than a few times but I follow the posts here every day. words can’t describe how hard my nipples are right now.

  144. Wow, I just totally forgot Jeter still had to bat.

  145. pete says:

    i want everyone in the lineup to now hit a hr, in consecutive order, just to shove it down their throats.

  146. Voice of Reason says:

    Downright Jeterian!

  147. Arman Tamzarian says:


  148. ansky says:

    look at Jetes stat-padding!


  149. crapula says:

    He’s says “most ever” like “big deal”

  150. crux says:

    Jeter is my favorite player and I appreciate his hits, but lets get to Mo.

  151. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Will this be Hairston’s True Yankee moment?

  152. Mister Delaware says:

    Part of me wants to start running and slamming myself off hotel room walls just to calm down for the 9th.

  153. JackC says:


  154. yankees=warriors says:

    I’m sorry if this is an ignorant question, but who decideds who should be the MVP?

  155. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    We did this shit with 2/3rds of our outfield injured. I’m on the cardiac arrest, shawtay!

  156. crapula says:

    They’re chanting 27

  157. Doug says:

    27! *clap clap clapclapclap*

  158. Nathan says:

    Its fitting that Jeter would have the last hit of the season for the Yankees after breaking Gehrig’s all time hit record.

  159. Evan says:

    Alright, three more outs, Mo.

  160. Jay says:

    THIS IS IT!!

  161. ansky says:

    so will Girardi change his number next season?

  162. charlespoet says:

    Is it wrong that I don’t even care about the Yankees batting.. Just want the three outs and to hear Sterlng spazzzzzzzz out.

  163. I’m as hard as a diamond in an ice storm right now.


  164. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Wow, Rollins contributes.

  165. aa says:


  166. Closing my computer, I’ll be back.

  167. crapula says:

    TWENTY SEVEN!!!! Joe Girardi: what number would you like next year?

  168. JobaWockeeZ says:

    There better be baseball tonight. I need Kruk’s reaction. And all of ESPN cutting their wrists.

  169. Joker, The says:

    oh man oh man oh man oh man

  170. Dela G says:

    man this is fucking awesome

    3 more outs

  171. JeffB says:

    In Mo we trust!

  172. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Must…play…Modern Warfare 2…

  173. Nels says:

    Let’s finish ‘em off Mo. This has been the best Yankees season since 1998! I’ll never forget 2009.

  174. Jay says:

    They better have paramedics around for Sterling when this bad boy ends. I don’t know if he can take it.

  175. slappy white says:

    we talk shit about players choking, but I cant feel my feet im so nervous….and a little drunk

  176. TLVP says:

    MVP is difficult


    No one else comes close in my mind

    But can you really give it to Mo? Three of the outings were with 3 run leads or more

    Matsui? 12 AB’s only?

  177. NatalMike says:

    They’re all MVPs

  178. nathan says:

    Can you smell that

  179. Mike Axisa says:


  180. Yanks 4 Life says:

    I hope the Yankees thank their son for helping them in bringing #27 home tonight.

  181. Joker, The says:

    I’m shaking…i can barely type

  182. Voice of Reason says:

    58 Year old Stairs? Taske him down, Mo.

  183. Doug says:

    The irony that a man of his girth is named “Stairs”

  184. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Stairs should do a sit up or 100.

  185. A brutal Phillies loss like this will probably drive John Kruk to do something regrettably stupid, like, for example, have sex with an ugly fat hosebeast of an intern. Not that I’d know anything about that.

    Steve Phillips

  186. Reggie C. says:

    Bring us home Mo. Bring us home.

  187. ansky says:

    i dont know if its my emotions or booze or both. But I moved to ATL from NYC last year and miss the Yanks and the city. But it has been an absolute pleasure and honor to watch these games with you guys. I feel like I’m back home! You all are the balls!

  188. Brazilian Yankee says:

    2 MO!

  189. Tampa Yankee says:

    2 more!

  190. Voice of Reason says:

    2 to go.

  191. crapula says:


  192. Jay says:

    Perspective. My son was 3.5 the last time the Yankees won. He’ll be 13 in February.

  193. Voice of Reason says:

    Kruk’s head will explode momentarily.

  194. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Phillies Dynasty my ass.

  195. Yanks 4 Life says:

    Stairs is happy that was caught. He only had to run a third of the way.

  196. murg says:

    Would someone contact Fatcesa and ask him if Girardi should be fired before or after the parade for pitching AP on three days rest.

  197. J.D. says:

    Two more Mo, I’ve been waiting for this for 9 years.

  198. ansky says:

    2more…cant breathe!!!

  199. yankees=warriors says:

    The players are restless too, LOL!

  200. ansky says:

    damn Buck sounds really bad. suicide watch?

  201. nathan says:

    country fat Joe

  202. Jay says:

    Cmon West! Do you want the game to go on longer???

  203. PUSS-Y TUB-ING!
    (clap clap clap-clap-clap)
    (clap clap clap-clap-clap)

  204. ShuutoHeat says:

    Guys, its been a beautiful 178 games…

  205. Esteban says:

    MO gets those calls. C’mon Blue

  206. Yanks 4 Life says:

    West is a fat bastard.

  207. aa says:

    fuckin ruiz again.

  208. Marcus says:

    DP would be the TITS.

  209. crapula says:


  210. Jay says:

    LOL…You see that smile Rivera gave West? You know he was thinking, “You fat ass hombre.”

  211. Klemy says:

    A walk? Wow.

  212. Hey Philly, Yankees ain't the Rays says:


  213. JeffB says:

    Now, throw a changeup!

  214. Joker, The says:

    WTF dont fucking squeeze mo!!!

  215. PsiFighter37 says:


  216. Brazilian Yankee says:

    1 MO!

  217. ansky says:

    1 more. OMG!

  218. crapula says:


  219. nathan says:

    1more f**kin out

  220. ROBTEN says:

    MO does not sweat your ridiculous strike zone West!

  221. JoeFromBayRidge says:

    Sorry Jimmy.

  222. Riddering says:

    JRoll is getting closer. That one was out of the infield. Maybe next year!


  223. Jake H says:

    little scary there.

  224. Voice of Reason says:

    Is the fat lady/Kruk singing yet?

  225. Jackson says:

    Joe Buck wanted that ball to leave the yard so bad.

    1 MORE

  226. AdamParker says:

    Mo has lost all his command.

    /Brazillian Yankee’d

  227. JobaWockeeZ says:

    You got lucky Rollins. But still HAHAHAHA! Phillies in 5. Pfft.

  228. Jay says:

    Man. Did Joey B. want that to get out or what??


    ONE TO GO BABY!!!!!!

  229. Reggie C. says:

    ONE. MORE.

  230. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Awwwwww Yeeeeaaaahh

  231. crapula says:



  232. NYFan50 says:

    2. more. strikes.

  233. pete says:

    rollins has figured rivera out.
    yeah ok jimmie. why don’t you go to bed, ok bub? grownups are talking

  234. Voice of Reason says:

    My brain can’t process this.

  235. PsiFighter37 says:


  236. NYFan50 says:

    1. more. strike.

  237. pete says:

    called strike three

  238. Jake H says:

    Shane there will be no shame in striking out there.

  239. crapula says:


  240. nathan says:

    Come on Shane

  241. Klemy says:

    Gritty, gutty at bat by Victorino

  242. Pasqua says:

    I take satisfaction in knowing that Ruiz sold his soul in a losing cause.

  243. Hugh Jassman says:


  244. Marcus says:

    If you only have one pitch, what do you shake off?

  245. crapula says:

    again with the finger

  246. yankees=warriors says:


  247. Salty Buggah says:


    Ballgame over, World Series over, Yankees win, THUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH YANKEES WIN!







  248. JeffB says:


  249. Riddering says:


  250. Tampa Yankee says:

    Hey… Peter Gammons, John Kruk, Howard Bryant, Bob Klapisch, ESPN, FoxSports, and the rest of the MSM…


    And Jimmmy Rollins… you’re a d-bag!

  251. Hugh Jassman says:


  252. AdamParker says:

    Ball game over! World Series Over!! Yankees win!!! THHHHHEEEEE Yankees Win!!!!

  253. Tampa Yankee says:

    Cole Hamels is happy he doesn’t have to pitch again I bet

  254. pete says:

    take that, ny hating bitches

  255. JobaWockeeZ says:

    27 27 27 27 27!!!

  256. ShuutoHeat says:


  257. Get used to it, rest of baseball. Get used to it.

  258. Mike Nitabach says:

    Matsui SMILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yayayayayayayay!!

  259. Evan says:

    They did it! They did it!

  260. Josh K says:

    Suck it Buck and Tim!! Yankees win!!!!!

  261. Klemy says:

    What a season!

  262. Jake H says:

    It just feels right doesn’t it?

  263. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Damn what a season!!!

  264. Reggie C. says:



  265. JeffB says:

    About freaking time!

  266. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    New dynasty. Man, best day ever. I’ve been waiting almost a decade for this.

  267. Mike Nitabach says:

    They are showing Matsui being talked to by serious-looking dudes in suits. MVP?

  268. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Where are the trolls and the ledge-jumpers now?

  269. pete says:

    a-rod has a world series ring bitches.

  270. Voice of Reason says:
