The first thread appears to be broken, so keep the party going here.
I’m glad that the umpire turned a walk into an out.
I find it amusing that we actually broke a thread. Was it the insane amount of comments?
Must’ve been, but last year I remember the # of comments to break a thread was much lower.
yea… pretty sure they upgraded the servers some time pretty recently
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…
He took steroids while playing for your team, you asshats.
Whew, glad it wasn’t just my browser that died.
Oh gee, that chant is nice and original.
I’m just a-waitin’ for the YAN-KEES SUCK! YAN-KEES SUCK! chant.
Crowd chanting steroids? Come on people.
He was on their team when he did it lol
Aha…I thought my computer was broken
ps. What on earth are they chanting?
“You did steroids,” I think.
“You did steroids!”
That was a steroid single obviously
The Centaur out-gallops another one.
that was a really coordinated spontaneous cheer
Is this the first spillover this year?
Nah there were a ton in the beginning of the season
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.
The first couple of games were spillover games, but not after that.
We finagled some stuff on the back end that made the site respond better to large threads, so no more spillovers.
The first two games of the year had them.
There was one on Opening Night.
Oh so there were some. Alright thanks all.
Can someone (an Yankee) please belt one?
Moving like a first baseman.
“YOU TOOK STEROIDS”
clap clap clap-clap-clap
That’s class if I’ve ever seen it
Considering that entire club house was a pharmacy at the time
Hip Hip indeed!!!!!!!! Let’s Go Po
JoPo will get it done, I believe
Cano comes through!
Cano does have that haggard, tired look.
So do I
He’s probably thoroughly exhausted and pissed at this point. He hasn’t been able to take a break.
Let’s hear a “Josh smokes crack” chant if we score!
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.
Oh by the way, new magic number.
Love it. I was hoping we’d reach that before the off day so A-Rod could get some more face time. Oh well.
That’s a great picture.
Agreed. Totally love it.
The celebration from last season was epic. Let’s see another one in November this season!
Let’s go Jorgie!!! Show Jeter how to hit a fly ball please!
C’mon Jorge… out of the infield!
holy crap JoPo owns Feldman, he needs to get it done here
Show everyone how to get a runner in from third, Jorge.
…ahh, glad to be back for the spillover.
There is no possible way we can fuck this up and to 14 innings.
don’t even say it. It’s completely possible.
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.
Another thing, if it’s not too much, NO. GROUNDBALLS.
Deep and thick fly ball
Please no jeter impression
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.
Let’s go Jorge! Deep fly ball gets it done…
the Dutch Oven and Rich Harden? Interesting.
You know what would be hilarious? If after all of this he winning run was balked in.
oh my god……..this can’t be happening again
This is getting comical.
Ugh, of course…
Also Giants win 1-0… tied atop the NL West.
Damnit! On the screws, caught! Bwah!
Ok, time for C-Grand to be a hero
..and that’s putting it mildly
Come on Granderson, make the world taste good
I laughed a little.
Curtis, tuck it in bra and smash one fuck this shit!
1300 is actually a shitty SAT now, Mike.
Did they change the scoring in the last 15 years?
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.
Ah, didn’t know that.
Math fail by Paul there
I will also take a run scoring on a wild pitch. I am not picky.
We just want a hit, Grandy. Just a hit.
Oh man, what Kay just said… So hitting a home run DOESN’T move runners a long?
Home runs are ebil and everything bad in baseball
surprised they didn’t call that a strike
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.
This Feldman dude has one of the ugliest beards in baseball.
Matt Garza’s beard is the ugliest.
Chad Gaudin when he was on the Cubs
Kevin’s doesn’t have an ugly stray hair sticking out of it. Not that I can see anyways.
All this excitement is making my nipples hard
worst reply fail of all time
on the other hand, this is the first thing to make me laugh since the 8th inning.
I’m still laughing.
Noooo not chad moeller
Great AB Grandy.
unleash the Moeller
MOELLER = BEAST
Chad Moeller double part 2
Time for Moeller to unleash again.
UNLEASH THE MOELLER
is it a meme yet?
If he does something, let’s make it one.
3-16 with RISP…ouchies
/Granderson walks and Matt fist pumps
Kay: Bases are loaded for Chad Moeller.
Matt: Aw, shit.
Please prove me wrong, Chad. Please.
Also a run scored on a walk. Seriously not picky.
Please walk Moeller
Here comes the walked in run
Stick an elbow out there!!!
Pull a Molina!
Look at him. Look him go.
This game, cmon backup to the backup! Moeller is the man, make it 2 for 2!
Chad show why you are an apostle of Jesus
Seriously though Chad, just lean into one or something.
Chad – Man of the game
Suddenly, I feel sorry for Feldman
I TAKE IT BACK.
My reaction to your comment: The fuck is wrong with you?
3-2 COME ON YANKEES!
Worship at the altar of Chad
MOMENT OF TRUTH
please just walk him
He swung at ball fucking four.
With this ump?
I hate this game.
This is pathetic
This game will never end. And I have to work tomorrow.
*bangs head on desk*
Oy this game
Thanks Carlosologist! You jerk face you. Jinxer
Dear baseball Gods,
Moeller did his best with that pitch. Had to swing.
Nelson Cruz leads off against Gaudin, not looking forward to this
U called it.
Imagine you were sitting in the left field stands! You’d really be in danger.
..and NO, Jeter currently does not have an edge
here comes cruz
I need to talk to my friend Cannabis right now!
2 away from the team left on base record
I should have just went to my girlfriends house, I am an idiot.
I’m so tired of furniture.
Yankees are going to lose! I don’t even care anymore. I’m out!
18 left on base …
This team amazes me that they lead the league in hitting with RISP.
huh? The Yanks are 7th in the AL and the Rangers are 3rd.
Nelson Cruz vs Guadin…
Called it. Great job team.
They deserved to lose.
Horrendous game. Bad managing. Only a matter of time.
Well, that sucked.
What a cruel fucking joke.
Thank you for putting us out of our misery
fuck me, I knew it was coming
Good night, folks.
18 DAMN RUNNERS LEFT ON BASE!
Well, at least it’s over.
18 left on base. Fuckin’ a.
Well it’s over.
Welp… this was not satisfying.
Haha, this amused me. Nicely done.
Holy shit finally, now I can go to bed…
Welp, the Yankees deserved to lose this one.
Well we suck
You could feel that one coming. Well, back tomorrow.
That makes sense. Cruz is a yankee-killer.
Two first pitch homers.
Worst game ever… More terrible offense. Pitiful.
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.
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.
3-17 RISP? 18 runners stranded? we deserve to lose.
18 Men Left On Base, title for this awful game?
Alright, I have enough pent up hatred for these assholes for the playoffs.
Don’t blame me, I was watching Amish Paradise.
Churning butter once or twice?
ps. We deserved to lose this one.
They deserved to lose this game. 18 LOB and 3-17 w/ RISP is unacceptable for a team like this.
We lost the game after THAT?!?! You got to be fucking kidding me….
I had a feeling this might happen …
Pro Tip: Don’t groove first-pitch fastballs to Nelson Cruz.
This is also known as Vazquezing it.
Don’t you mean Jobaing it?
Vazquez grooved the ultimate get-me-over fastball in the 2004 ALCS. The tile is his forever.
At least the magic number went down. At the end of the day/night/whatever, that’s all that really matters.
Nice of Joe to keep the human white flag in there instead of trying out Albie.
Albie is a rookie.
Girardi did nothing wrong in this game. The players all failed
Albie = not a rookie.
Young guy from AAA who might n=have crumbled under the pressure.
Albie >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Guadin
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.
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!
I think we’re going to get swept
We have given the cocky Rangers confidence. They have nothing to lose. Or something.
It’s called demoralization
Oh, honestly, STFU. You think every loss demoralizes the Yankees beyond belief or something.
Oh..dont be so negative. Just one game (which we deserved to lose)
WOAH, this game was close, you had to like what you saw from ARod et. al. I wouldn’t put money on it.
This type of loss could have hangover. We’ll see.
Like…a 10 game hangover? Because you’ve always been good at predicting things like losing streaks.
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.
That was a BP fast-ball. Of course Cruz crushed that.
This team is in deep shit for the playoffs.
If they keep up this kind of offensive performance…yes.
That’s what I’m saying. I’m not confident with this offense against playoff pitching.
I bet you also think they get shut down against 5+ ERA pitchers and shitty callups too huh.
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.
perception =/= reality
I’m pretty sure if you’re a fan of ANY team you think that.
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.
Fact of the matter is the game should have never been in extras.
The fact of the matter is that you can’t predict baseball, so…yeah.
/helping to build the brand’d
do not blame chad
should hang joba
Cause Joba left a bajillion runners on base, and blew a call at 2nd base that gave the other team a run.
because the jerk lost the game on his second best pitch
Oh, Joba gave up all 6 runs on 1 pitch?
I’m supposed to catch a flight to Arlington at 6 am Eastern Time for the other two games of this series. Oy vey..
Fuck Cruz! Fuck Joba! Fuck Gaudin! Dare I say Fuck Jeter????
Please dont blame Gaudin…blame Jeter, Posada and all those hitters who couldnt buy a hit with RISP tonight
not just a hit, but bringing the runner on 3rd in with only 1 out.
That’s right. Elvis Andrus beat them all tonight with two ground outs. That’s how you win ballgames.
Posada had one AB today. Hit a liner right to 2B
Aight , tommorrow peeps. Epic Fail!
IT IS TOMORROW!
I hope Girardi leaves for the Cubs!
WOAH that’s a bit harsh for a guy managing a team with an 87-54 record, don’t you think?
Weren’t you leaving earlier?
Can we give Jeter a vacation until playoffs start? While we’re at it let Cano sleep for a week.
makes you wonder if Yanks should be wild card against twins
Alright, I’m off to Bob’s for some furniture shopping and I have an appoint with Randy Johnson for a snowball fight.
Jeter does not need to be hitting lead off!
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.
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.
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!
You say this like they’re not trying to get the runners home
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.”
Shit, what can you do? They deserved to lose this, so dust it off and hope to kick ass tomorrow.
Hear hear. Except I don’t agree with “deserved to lose”.
We stranded 18 runners (!!) and had like 3 hits with RISP. I think expectations sort of dipped after that.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
So they deserved to __________
Work through their crap hitting and manage to win.
eh, crap hitting, crap starting pitching, it’s not a good combo.
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.
This was such a bad game.
Longest thread…..all for naught.
They struck out 15 times? Holy shnikes.
What should I watch to get this out of my head now?
watch The Alamo
Theres no basement in the Alamo….
I got the movie ‘kick Ass’ . I am hoping it would be cathartic.
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.
he shouldn’t be pitching period
Am I the only one who’s really not too pissed with Gaudin in the 13th?
No, it’s not like it was his fault.
It’s not even that; they needed length at this point. Gaudin was one of two guys who could give length.
I’m pissed that he’s still on the roster.
Hey, he does his job – pitch OK in unimportant situations.
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.
Nope. The offense is my #1 enemy tonight. Terrible job tonight.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Agreed and looking forward to seeing them in the 1st round…they dont scare me.
They also won’t have 30 pitchers and 8 lefties in the pen during the postseason.
Joba = trade bait
ffft he’s worth more than what teams would offer.
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.
Repetition: Why is Jeter leading off?
because he hits used to hit lefties well.
