Game 141 Spillover Thread

By

The first thread appears to be broken, so keep the party going here.

Categories : Game Threads
  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

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

  • bobtaco

    Centaur?

  • Cecala

    That’s awesome

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Haha, morons.

  • Kit

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

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      Must’ve been, but last year I remember the # of comments to break a thread was much lower.

      • andrew

        yea… pretty sure they upgraded the servers some time pretty recently

    • forensic

      Well, since I think all bets are off at this point, we have passed the most commented game all season now. With no end in sight…

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

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

  • forensic

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

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Oh gee, that chant is nice and original.

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      I’m just a-waitin’ for the YAN-KEES SUCK! YAN-KEES SUCK! chant.

  • Jerome S

    Crowd chanting steroids? Come on people.

    • Zack

      He was on their team when he did it lol

  • rek4gehrig

    Aha…I thought my computer was broken

    ps. What on earth are they chanting?

    • Kit

      “You did steroids,” I think.

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      “You did steroids!”

  • Cecala

    That was a steroid single obviously

  • Jerome S

    The Centaur out-gallops another one.

  • Cy Pettitte

    that was a really coordinated spontaneous cheer

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Is this the first spillover this year?

    • Cecala

      Nah there were a ton in the beginning of the season

      • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

        Really? I don’t remember but early on I remember it being odd that spillovers ceased to exist.

        It’s probably shitty human memory though.

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          The first couple of games were spillover games, but not after that.

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

          We finagled some stuff on the back end that made the site respond better to large threads, so no more spillovers.

    • forensic

      The first two games of the year had them.

    • Carlosologist

      There was one on Opening Night.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Oh so there were some. Alright thanks all.

  • rek4gehrig

    Can someone (an Yankee) please belt one?

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Moving like a first baseman.

  • http://dontbringinthelefty.blogspot.com Lucas AA, aka don’t_bring_in_the_lefty

    clap clap clap-clap-clap

    • http://dontbringinthelefty.blogspot.com Lucas AA, aka don’t_bring_in_the_lefty

      That’s class if I’ve ever seen it

      • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

        It’s Texas.

      • Zack

        Considering that entire club house was a pharmacy at the time

  • CBean

    HIP HIP

    • rek4gehrig

      Hip Hip indeed!!!!!!!! Let’s Go Po

  • Cy Pettitte

    JoPo will get it done, I believe

  • Reggie C.

    Cano comes through!

    • Reggie C.

      Cano does have that haggard, tired look.

      • rek4gehrig

        So do I

      • Kit

        He’s probably thoroughly exhausted and pissed at this point. He hasn’t been able to take a break.

  • Kit

    CENTAUR!

  • bonestock94

    Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

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

    • Big Davey

      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.

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

    Oh by the way, new magic number.

    • forensic

      Love it. I was hoping we’d reach that before the off day so A-Rod could get some more face time. Oh well.

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      That’s a great picture.

      • Kit

        Agreed. Totally love it.

    • Carlosologist

      The celebration from last season was epic. Let’s see another one in November this season!

  • forensic

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

  • ThrillHouseMD

    C’mon Jorge… out of the infield!

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

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

  • MikeD

    …ahh, glad to be back for the spillover.

  • Carlosologist

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

    • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

      don’t even say it. It’s completely possible.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    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.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Another thing, if it’s not too much, NO. GROUNDBALLS.

    • rek4gehrig

      Deep and thick fly ball

  • It’sATarp

    Please no jeter impression

  • Jerome S

    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.

  • BadaBling

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

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    the Dutch Oven and Rich Harden? Interesting.

  • Jerome S

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

  • bonestock94

    ugh seriously

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

  • CBean

    GODAMMIT

  • Greg

    God dammit

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Ugh.

  • Cy Pettitte

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

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

    This is getting comical.

  • forensic

    Ugh, of course…

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

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

    • Carlosologist

      YES

      woo

  • BadaBling

    Damnit! On the screws, caught! Bwah!

  • CBean

    Ok, time for C-Grand to be a hero

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    C’mon Grandy.

  • Kit

    Mother. fuck.

    • rek4gehrig

      ..and that’s putting it mildly

      • Kit

        Yes.

  • Cecala

    Come on Granderson, make the world taste good

    • Kit

      I laughed a little.

  • BadaBling

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

  • ecks

    OOOOF

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    1300 is actually a shitty SAT now, Mike.

    • forensic

      Did they change the scoring in the last 15 years?

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        Yeah, they did. After the ’04 tests, they changed it to have three sections: critical reading, math, and writing, which also includes an essay. It’s out of 2400 now.

        • forensic

          Ah, didn’t know that.

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    that’s horseshit

  • Zack

    Math fail by Paul there

  • CBean

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

  • Kit

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

  • ecks

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

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      Home runs are ebil and everything bad in baseball

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    surprised they didn’t call that a strike

    • ecks

      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.

  • BadaBling

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

    • Kit

      Matt Garza’s beard is the ugliest.

      • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

          Kevin’s doesn’t have an ugly stray hair sticking out of it. Not that I can see anyways.

        • Cecala

          All this excitement is making my nipples hard

          • Cecala

            worst reply fail of all time

            • CBean

              on the other hand, this is the first thing to make me laugh since the 8th inning.

            • Kit

              I’m still laughing.

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    Noooo not chad moeller

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

    Time to…

    UNLEASH

    THE

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Great AB Grandy.

  • Cy Pettitte

    unleash the Moeller

  • Big Davey

    MOELLER = BEAST

  • bonestock94

    Chad Moeller double part 2

  • JimAbbottFan

    Time for Moeller to unleash again.

  • Jerome S

    UNLEASH THE MOELLER

    is it a meme yet?

    • Kit

      If he does something, let’s make it one.

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    3-16 with RISP…ouchies

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

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

    Please prove me wrong, Chad. Please.

  • CBean

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

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    Please walk Moeller

  • rek4gehrig

    Here comes the walked in run

  • forensic

    Stick an elbow out there!!!

    • CBean

      Pull a Molina!

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Seriously.

  • Big Davey

    Look at him. Look him go.

  • BadaBling

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

  • Cecala

    Chad show why you are an apostle of Jesus

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

    Seriously though Chad, just lean into one or something.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      I approve.

  • Jerome S

    Suddenly, I feel sorry for Feldman

    • Jerome S

      I TAKE IT BACK.

    He swung at ball fucking four.

    • Greg

      With this ump?

  • CBean

    I hate this game.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Ridiculous.

  • Kit

    Dear baseball Gods,

    Why?

  • Jerome S

    /sobs….

  • Reggie C.

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

    Dammit Posada.

  • Cy Pettitte

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

    • rek4gehrig

      U called it.

    • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

      Imagine you were sitting in the left field stands! You’d really be in danger.

  • rek4gehrig

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

  • OneDummYankFan

    here comes cruz

  • Magnus Stultus

    I need to talk to my friend Cannabis right now!

    • rek4gehrig

      LOL

  • Fred Lemondtero

    2 away from the team left on base record

  • Cecala

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

  • Big Davey

    I’m so tired of furniture.

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

  • http://dontbringinthelefty.blogspot.com Lucas AA, aka don’t_bring_in_the_lefty

    18 left on base …

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

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

    • forensic

      huh? The Yanks are 7th in the AL and the Rangers are 3rd.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Nelson Cruz vs Guadin…

    Yay.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Called it. Great job team.

  • Roy Munson’s Rent

    fuck

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    They deserved to lose.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Horrendous game. Bad managing. Only a matter of time.

  • CBean

    Well, that sucked.

  • ThrillHouseMD

    Lol.

  • Carlosologist

    FUCK

  • bonestock94

    What a cruel fucking joke.

  • Cecala

    Thank you for putting us out of our misery

  • Cy Pettitte

    fuck me, I knew it was coming

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Good night, folks.

  • JimAbbottFan

    ….And goodnight

  • Frank

    18 DAMN RUNNERS LEFT ON BASE!

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Well, at least it’s over.

    18 left on base. Fuckin’ a.

  • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

    Well it’s over.

  • Big Davey

    Welp… this was not satisfying.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Haha, this amused me. Nicely done.

  • Kevin in Delectable Princeton

    Holy shit finally, now I can go to bed…

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

    Welp, the Yankees deserved to lose this one.

  • Greg

    Well we suck

  • MikeD

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

  • Reggie C.

    That makes sense. Cruz is a yankee-killer.

  • OneDummYankFan

    amazing

  • forensic

    Two first pitch homers.

    Worst game ever… More terrible offense. Pitiful.

  • Kit

    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

      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.

  • Fred Lemondtero

    Embarrassing loss.

  • a plethora of pinatas

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

  • BadaBling

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

  • Roy Munson’s Rent

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

  • Pat D

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

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Churning butter once or twice?

  • rek4gehrig

    ps. We deserved to lose this one.

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

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

  • Jerome S

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

  • http://dontbringinthelefty.blogspot.com Lucas AA, aka don’t_bring_in_the_lefty

    I had a feeling this might happen …

  • Hughesus Christo

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

    This is also known as Vazquezing it.

    • Cecala

      Don’t you mean Jobaing it?

      • Hughesus Christo

        Vazquez grooved the ultimate get-me-over fastball in the 2004 ALCS. The tile is his forever.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

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

  • http://twitter.com/cephster Ross in Jersey

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

    • Greg

      Shut up.

      Albie is a rookie.

      Girardi did nothing wrong in this game. The players all failed

      • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

        Albie = not a rookie.

        • Greg

          Okay

          Young guy from AAA who might n=have crumbled under the pressure.

        • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

          Albie >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Guadin

          Just why.

      • Cecala

        /You’d?

      • Kit

        First and foremost, don’t tell people to shut up because you have no right to be rude to anyone who wasn’t being rude to you. Also, Albie is not a rookie.

    • BadaBling

      Dude gives up a homerun almost every outting. At least every game I’ve ever seen. Albie woulda been a much better choice than the mop up dude, fuck!

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    DFA him.

  • Greg

    I think we’re going to get swept

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      We have given the cocky Rangers confidence. They have nothing to lose. Or something.

      • Greg

        It’s called demoralization

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          Oh, honestly, STFU. You think every loss demoralizes the Yankees beyond belief or something.

    • Kit

      O:S

    • rek4gehrig

      Oh..dont be so negative. Just one game (which we deserved to lose)

    • Jerome S

      WOAH, this game was close, you had to like what you saw from ARod et. al. I wouldn’t put money on it.

      • Greg

        This type of loss could have hangover. We’ll see.

        • Kit

          Like…a 10 game hangover? Because you’ve always been good at predicting things like losing streaks.

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          The last time the Yankees had a pretty devastating extra-innings loss in Texas they had an awesome comeback against Cliff Fucking Lee (pre-suck) the next day.

  • Reggie C.

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

  • King of the Troglodytes

    This team is in deep shit for the playoffs.

    • Hughesus Christo

      Hahahahahahaha

    • a plethora of pinatas

      If they keep up this kind of offensive performance…yes.

      • King of the Troglodytes

        That’s what I’m saying. I’m not confident with this offense against playoff pitching.

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          I bet you also think they get shut down against 5+ ERA pitchers and shitty callups too huh.

          • King of the Troglodytes

            I know the numbers probably don’t bear it – but my God, it seems like they have stranded a small army of guys on third base with less than 2 outs this season.

            • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

              perception =/= reality

              I’m pretty sure if you’re a fan of ANY team you think that.

              • King of the Troglodytes

                Well, I know Swisher’s numbers in particular are horrendous. I believe he had only knocked in 9 out of 33 in those situations at one point this season.

  • Coach6423

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

    • Kit

      The fact of the matter is that you can’t predict baseball, so…yeah.

      /helping to build the brand’d

  • OneDummYankFan

    do not blame chad

    should hang joba

    • Coach6423

      Cause Joba left a bajillion runners on base, and blew a call at 2nd base that gave the other team a run.

      • OneDummYankFan

        because the jerk lost the game on his second best pitch

        • Coach6423

          Oh, Joba gave up all 6 runs on 1 pitch?

  • Jon in CUO

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

  • a plethora of pinatas

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

    • rek4gehrig

      Please dont blame Gaudin…blame Jeter, Posada and all those hitters who couldnt buy a hit with RISP tonight

      • a plethora of pinatas

        not just a hit, but bringing the runner on 3rd in with only 1 out.

        • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

          That’s right. Elvis Andrus beat them all tonight with two ground outs. That’s how you win ballgames.

      WOAH that’s a bit harsh for a guy managing a team with an 87-54 record, don’t you think?

    • Kit

      Weren’t you leaving earlier?

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

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

  • OneDummYankFan

    makes you wonder if Yanks should be wild card against twins

  • Roy Munson’s Rent

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

  • Frank

    Jeter does not need to be hitting lead off!

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Jeter does not need to be hitting. lead off

      Fixed. Whether it’s age or he’s hiding an injury he needs to be rested for the playoffs. His at bat’s are atrocious.

        HTML FAIL.

  • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

    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.

      Aiming to score runs while making outs is not a sound strategy. It may work on a micro level, but over the course of the season, it’s not a good way to get runs home.

      • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

        It’s called situational hitting. Pop-ups and strikeouts aren’t going to get you anything and are poor situational hitting. A couple of well-timed grounders would have been nice when you have 18 men on base!

        • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

          You say this like they’re not trying to get the runners home

        • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

          I don’t disagree with you–they hit poorly tonight and there’s no denying that. However, aiming to get hits and working the count for walks in those situations accomplish the two most essential things on offense in baseball: scoring runs and not making outs.

          This isn’t directed at you, but just a general grievance. People complain about the Yankees’ offense and their style of play, they they are pretty much the best offensive team in baseball and have consistently been in that position for the last 8-10 years.

            That should read “yet they are” or “but they are.”

  • Carlosologist

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

    • Kit

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

      • Carlosologist

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

        • Kit

          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.

          • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

            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

              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.

              • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

                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

          • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

            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

              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.

        • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

          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

        So they deserved to __________

        • Kit

          Work through their crap hitting and manage to win.

          • Jerome S

            eh, crap hitting, crap starting pitching, it’s not a good combo.

            • Kit

              I really don’t get that. It’s not like Javy gave up the lead. He totally had a call work against him. Don’t put the blame where it doesn’t belong.

  • http://www.twitter.com/tomzig Tom Zig

    This was such a bad game.

  • a plethora of pinatas

    Longest thread…..all for naught.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    They struck out 15 times? Holy shnikes.

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

    • a plethora of pinatas

      watch The Alamo

      • Coach6423

        Theres no basement in the Alamo….

    • Magnus Stultus

      I got the movie ‘kick Ass’ . I am hoping it would be cathartic.

  • Jerome S

    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.

    • a plethora of pinatas

      he shouldn’t be pitching period

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

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

    • http://youcantpredictbaseball.wordpress.com/ bexarama

      No, it’s not like it was his fault.

      • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

        It’s not even that; they needed length at this point. Gaudin was one of two guys who could give length.

    • a plethora of pinatas

      I’m pissed that he’s still on the roster.

      • Jerome S

        Hey, he does his job – pitch OK in unimportant situations.

    • Magnus Stultus

      I am not that pissed. Shit , you are going to give up a run soon or later in this stadium with that lineup. It’s on the offense tonight.

    • forensic

      Nope. The offense is my #1 enemy tonight. Terrible job tonight.

    • Kit

      I was really more amused by the fact that some people actually saw that coming. I’m not mad, I just don’t like him in general.

    • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

      Nah…I’m more pissed that it had to come to that. I’m going to get tired of typing 18 men left on base.

  • Magnus Stultus

    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.

  • Jerome S

    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.

    • rek4gehrig

      Agreed and looking forward to seeing them in the 1st round…they dont scare me.

    • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

      They also won’t have 30 pitchers and 8 lefties in the pen during the postseason.

  • a plethora of pinatas

    Joba = trade bait

    • Jerome S

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

    • http://www.yankeenumbers.com Mr. Sparkle

      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.

  • Jerome S

    Repetition: Why is Jeter leading off?

    • a plethora of pinatas

      because he hits used to hit lefties well.
