  1. I’m glad that the umpire turned a walk into an out.

  2. bobtaco says:

    Centaur?

  3. Cecala says:

    That’s awesome

  4. Kit says:

    I find it amusing that we actually broke a thread. Was it the insane amount of comments?

  5. He took steroids while playing for your team, you asshats.

  6. forensic says:

    Whew, glad it wasn’t just my browser that died.

  7. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Oh gee, that chant is nice and original.

  8. Jerome S says:

    Crowd chanting steroids? Come on people.

  9. rek4gehrig says:

    Aha…I thought my computer was broken

    ps. What on earth are they chanting?

  10. Cecala says:

    That was a steroid single obviously

  11. Jerome S says:

    The Centaur out-gallops another one.

  12. Cy Pettitte says:

    that was a really coordinated spontaneous cheer

  13. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Is this the first spillover this year?

  14. rek4gehrig says:

    Can someone (an Yankee) please belt one?

  15. Moving like a first baseman.

  16. “YOU TOOK STEROIDS”
    clap clap clap-clap-clap

  17. Cy Pettitte says:

    JoPo will get it done, I believe

  18. Reggie C. says:

    Cano comes through!

  19. bonestock94 says:

    Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Let’s hear a “Josh smokes crack” chant if we score!

    • Big Davey says:

      I’m partial to “you’re all fat, mouth breathing inbred slobs!” And that’s in reference to the good people that like to pretend they live in their own country and go to Tim McGraw concerts.

  20. Mike Axisa says:

    Oh by the way, new magic number.

  21. forensic says:

    Let’s go Jorgie!!! Show Jeter how to hit a fly ball please!

  22. ThrillHouseMD says:

    C’mon Jorge… out of the infield!

  23. Cy Pettitte says:

    holy crap JoPo owns Feldman, he needs to get it done here

  24. Show everyone how to get a runner in from third, Jorge.

  25. MikeD says:

    …ahh, glad to be back for the spillover.

  26. Carlosologist says:

    There is no possible way we can fuck this up and to 14 innings.

  27. All I ask of you is a deep fly ball, Jorge. Please. You know how much I love you. Just do this one thing for me, and I’ll write more HOF pieces for you.

  28. It'sATarp says:

    Please no jeter impression

  29. Jerome S says:

    My friend had a concussion, the doctors cleared him entirely, but he still passed out randomly during the day. I don’t care how sure that they are, you can’t be to sure.

  30. BadaBling says:

    Let’s go Jorge! Deep fly ball gets it done…

  31. Tom Zig says:

    the Dutch Oven and Rich Harden? Interesting.

  32. Jerome S says:

    You know what would be hilarious? If after all of this he winning run was balked in.

  33. bonestock94 says:

    ugh seriously

  34. Greg says:

    God dammit

  35. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Ugh.

  36. Cy Pettitte says:

    oh my god……..this can’t be happening again

  37. This is getting comical.

  38. forensic says:

    Ugh, of course…

  39. bexarama says:

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Also Giants win 1-0… tied atop the NL West.

  40. BadaBling says:

    Damnit! On the screws, caught! Bwah!

  41. CBean says:

    Ok, time for C-Grand to be a hero

  42. Kit says:

    Mother. fuck.

  43. Cecala says:

    Come on Granderson, make the world taste good

  44. BadaBling says:

    Curtis, tuck it in bra and smash one fuck this shit!

  45. 1300 is actually a shitty SAT now, Mike.

  46. Tom Zig says:

    that’s horseshit

  47. Zack says:

    Math fail by Paul there

  48. CBean says:

    I will also take a run scoring on a wild pitch. I am not picky.

  49. Kit says:

    We just want a hit, Grandy. Just a hit.

  50. ecks says:

    Oh man, what Kay just said… So hitting a home run DOESN’T move runners a long?

  51. Tom Zig says:

    surprised they didn’t call that a strike

    • ecks says:

      True. My stream froze as the pitch was crossing home plate, and I shouted in disgust… Only to see Granderson throwing his bat away and heading towards first.

  52. BadaBling says:

    This Feldman dude has one of the ugliest beards in baseball.

  53. Tom Zig says:

    Noooo not chad moeller

  54. Time to…

    UNLEASH

    THE

    MOELLER

  55. Cy Pettitte says:

    unleash the Moeller

  56. Big Davey says:

    MOELLER = BEAST

  57. bonestock94 says:

    Chad Moeller double part 2

  58. JimAbbottFan says:

    Time for Moeller to unleash again.

  59. Jerome S says:

    UNLEASH THE MOELLER

    is it a meme yet?

  60. Tom Zig says:

    3-16 with RISP…ouchies

  61. /Granderson walks and Matt fist pumps
    Kay: Bases are loaded for Chad Moeller.
    Matt: Aw, shit.

    Please prove me wrong, Chad. Please.

  62. CBean says:

    Also a run scored on a walk. Seriously not picky.

  63. Tom Zig says:

    Please walk Moeller

  64. rek4gehrig says:

    Here comes the walked in run

  65. forensic says:

    Stick an elbow out there!!!

  66. Big Davey says:

    Look at him. Look him go.

  67. BadaBling says:

    This game, cmon backup to the backup! Moeller is the man, make it 2 for 2!

  68. Cecala says:

    Chad show why you are an apostle of Jesus

  69. Seriously though Chad, just lean into one or something.

  70. rek4gehrig says:

    Chad – Man of the game

  71. Jerome S says:

    Suddenly, I feel sorry for Feldman

  72. Fred Lemondtero says:

    3-2 :( COME ON YANKEES!

  73. Tom Zig says:

    Worship at the altar of Chad

  74. bonestock94 says:

    MOMENT OF TRUTH

  75. Cy Pettitte says:

    please just walk him

  76. He swung at ball fucking four.

  77. CBean says:

    I hate this game.

  78. rek4gehrig says:

    Mama Mia!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????????

  79. Fred Lemondtero says:

    This is pathetic

  80. forensic says:

    This game will never end. And I have to work tomorrow. :-(

  81. Tom Zig says:

    Thanks Carlosologist! You jerk face you. Jinxer

    kidding

  82. Kit says:

    Dear baseball Gods,

    Why?

  83. Jerome S says:

    /sobs….

  84. Reggie C. says:

    Moeller did his best with that pitch. Had to swing.

    Dammit Posada.

  85. Cy Pettitte says:

    Nelson Cruz leads off against Gaudin, not looking forward to this

  86. rek4gehrig says:

    ..and NO, Jeter currently does not have an edge

  87. OneDummYankFan says:

    here comes cruz

  88. Magnus Stultus says:

    I need to talk to my friend Cannabis right now!

  89. Fred Lemondtero says:

    2 away from the team left on base record

  90. Cecala says:

    I should have just went to my girlfriends house, I am an idiot.

  91. Big Davey says:

    I’m so tired of furniture.

  92. Frank says:

    Yankees are going to lose! I don’t even care anymore. I’m out!

  93. JobaWockeeZ says:

    This team amazes me that they lead the league in hitting with RISP.

  94. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Nelson Cruz vs Guadin…

    Yay.

  95. Roy Munson's Rent says:

    fuck

  96. Tom Zig says:

    They deserved to lose.

  97. CBean says:

    Well, that sucked.

  98. ThrillHouseMD says:

    Lol.

  99. Carlosologist says:

    FUCK

  100. bonestock94 says:

    What a cruel fucking joke.

  101. Cecala says:

    Thank you for putting us out of our misery

  102. Cy Pettitte says:

    fuck me, I knew it was coming

  103. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Good night, folks.

  104. JimAbbottFan says:

    ….And goodnight

  105. Frank says:

    18 DAMN RUNNERS LEFT ON BASE!

  106. Well, at least it’s over.

    18 left on base. Fuckin’ a.

  107. Big Davey says:

    Welp… this was not satisfying.

  108. Kevin in Delectable Princeton says:

    Holy shit finally, now I can go to bed…

  109. Welp, the Yankees deserved to lose this one.

  110. Greg says:

    Well we suck

  111. MikeD says:

    You could feel that one coming. Well, back tomorrow.

  112. Reggie C. says:

    That makes sense. Cruz is a yankee-killer.

  113. OneDummYankFan says:

    amazing

  114. forensic says:

    Two first pitch homers.

    Worst game ever… More terrible offense. Pitiful.

  115. Kit says:

    And most of you predicted this fun. I really don’t like you, Chad. The fact that you’re still on this team makes me want to choke someone.

    • Margaux says:

      DJ and Posada couldn’t get the job done. They are the heros of the Yankees. 2 of the great core 4! Both failed miserably when the Yanks needed them. No need to be upset at a 3rd string catcher.

  116. Fred Lemondtero says:

    Embarrassing loss.

  117. a plethora of pinatas says:

    3-17 RISP? 18 runners stranded? we deserve to lose.

  118. BadaBling says:

    18 Men Left On Base, title for this awful game?

  119. Roy Munson's Rent says:

    Alright, I have enough pent up hatred for these assholes for the playoffs.

  120. Pat D says:

    Don’t blame me, I was watching Amish Paradise.

  121. rek4gehrig says:

    ps. We deserved to lose this one.

  122. Tom Zig says:

    They deserved to lose this game. 18 LOB and 3-17 w/ RISP is unacceptable for a team like this.

  123. Jerome S says:

    We lost the game after THAT?!?! You got to be fucking kidding me….

  124. Hughesus Christo says:

    Pro Tip: Don’t groove first-pitch fastballs to Nelson Cruz.

    This is also known as Vazquezing it.

  125. At least the magic number went down. At the end of the day/night/whatever, that’s all that really matters.

  126. Nice of Joe to keep the human white flag in there instead of trying out Albie.

  127. Greg says:

    I think we’re going to get swept

  128. Reggie C. says:

    That was a BP fast-ball. Of course Cruz crushed that.

  129. King of the Troglodytes says:

    This team is in deep shit for the playoffs.

  130. Coach6423 says:

    Fact of the matter is the game should have never been in extras.

  131. OneDummYankFan says:

    do not blame chad

    should hang joba

  132. Jon in CUO says:

    I’m supposed to catch a flight to Arlington at 6 am Eastern Time for the other two games of this series. Oy vey..

  133. a plethora of pinatas says:

    Fuck Cruz! Fuck Joba! Fuck Gaudin! Dare I say Fuck Jeter????

  134. Magnus Stultus says:

    Motherf*&*%$#$%$%%$^%^%$##$$$#$%%%^%%$####$##%$%kkkkkkk!

    Aight , tommorrow peeps. Epic Fail!

  135. Frank says:

    I hope Girardi leaves for the Cubs!

  136. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Can we give Jeter a vacation until playoffs start? While we’re at it let Cano sleep for a week.

  137. OneDummYankFan says:

    makes you wonder if Yanks should be wild card against twins

  138. Roy Munson's Rent says:

    Alright, I’m off to Bob’s for some furniture shopping and I have an appoint with Randy Johnson for a snowball fight.

  139. Frank says:

    Jeter does not need to be hitting lead off!

  140. Mr. Sparkle says:

    You leave 18 men on base you deserve to lose…unless the other team leaves 19. The biggest stat for me in this game is Elvis Andrus drove in two runs with ground outs. I wish the Yankee lineup would take note of that…there are many ways to score in baseball…especially when you get that many runners on base.

  141. Carlosologist says:

    Shit, what can you do? They deserved to lose this, so dust it off and hope to kick ass tomorrow.

    • Kit says:

      Hear hear. Except I don’t agree with “deserved to lose”.

      • Carlosologist says:

        We stranded 18 runners (!!) and had like 3 hits with RISP. I think expectations sort of dipped after that.

        • Kit says:

          I agree that they did poorly, but saying that your team deserves to lose is childish, especially if you want good things to happen and for them to win.

          • bexarama says:

            Seriously, if they hit a solo HR in whatever inning than won, would anyone complain? There’ve been a couple of games this year that they won where they played really poorly but I certainly don’t mind those.

            • Kit says:

              I’m just really taken aback when people say things like “they deserved to lose,” um, unless they handed the other team the game through errors and generally disgusting pitching, then they didn’t “deserve” anything. This game went on forever, it’s not like the Rangers were phenomenal, they just couldn’t get as many people on base as the Yankees did (which is, as I see it, a knock on their pitching). Not to mention the fact that the one run that scored on the horrible ump call, managed to affect us in the end.

              • bexarama says:

                If you won, you deserved to win, that’s how I look at it. Like, remember that last game they played against Arizona? How incredibly awful but I mean… I know Arizona’s not that good… but if you managed to get past all the awfulness and won anyway, hey, good on ya.

                And yeah. Swisher and Tex’s HR balls carry a bit more, and the umpire isn’t goddamn retarded, and we’re not bitching and whining so much. /fallacy of the predetermined outcome’d

          • Mr. Sparkle says:

            Actually, no. I personally wanted them to win very much. However, in no way do you “deserve” to win a game when you blow as many opportunities as they did. I don’t see how being held accountable for a poor performance is childish. It’s quite the opposite, I’d think. I love the Yankees, but I can’t just blindly assess their performance as excellent no matter the outcome. I don’t see how it helps not to critique someones performance. I do it to myself every day at work. That’s life.

            • Kit says:

              And I disagree. You’re acting like they should be punished for trying and just not being able to get the job done, which is complete bullshit, considering the fact that at the end of that game, where the opportunities to get hits came, weak hitters/unproven hitters were up. I’m not saying they were amazing at playing and that they shouldn’t be critiqued, but you want them to fail, like it’s going to really stick with them. And it’s not.

        • JobaWockeeZ says:

          I agree. If you’re not getting the job done then you really shouldn’t get the warmth of victory. I’ll take it either way though but that.

      • Jerome S says:

        So they deserved to __________

  142. Tom Zig says:

    This was such a bad game.

  143. a plethora of pinatas says:

    Longest thread…..all for naught.

  144. They struck out 15 times? Holy shnikes.

    What should I watch to get this out of my head now?

  145. Jerome S says:

    Over 1900 comments at least? So it’s a monument to the amount of time we waste.

    But yeah, the Yankees did not deserve to win that, and Gaudin does not deserve any blame – he shouldn’t even have been pitching in the thirteenth.

  146. Am I the only one who’s really not too pissed with Gaudin in the 13th?

  147. Magnus Stultus says:

    It was a team effort tonight. But I am not going to sugarcoat Jeter’s suckitude lately. I expect my highest paid SS Captain to hit more than weak ground balls . He needs two weeks off. Goodnight everyone.

  148. Jerome S says:

    In our defense, the Rangers didn’t exactly play great ball.

    AND if I may point out, they won on one run; a run that they gained when Ian Kinsler “stole” second, even though he was clearly out.

  149. a plethora of pinatas says:

    Joba = trade bait

    • Jerome S says:

      ffft he’s worth more than what teams would offer.

    • Mr. Sparkle says:

      Hey, I’m no Joba fan, but he hung one pitch. He didn’t bat tonight. He didn’t blow a call at second base that cost them a run. He wasn’t a part of leaving 18 men on base. They had plenty of opportunities and didn’t cash in. YES…he does shoulder some of the blame, but I can’t chalk this one up to Joba.

  150. Jerome S says:

    Repetition: Why is Jeter leading off?
