The Yankees will bring the tying run to the plate in this game.
Thank you Mike for the optimism.
Fresh start. The rally starts now. Doomsayers be GONE!
Well that didn’t work.
And we have already brought the tying run to the plate twice in this game.
Twice and it won’t happen again.
Yeah, good going there…that was about as successful as CC Sabathia’s effort tonight, except I put you put more effort into that comment than CC put into his start tonight.
What a sad, pathetic life you must lead. What did CC do, kill your dog?
Just ruined my night. Besides, I hate dogs.
Speaking of sad and pathetic: 71.2 IP 40 RA 38 BBs 64 Ks 10 HRA.
Yeah, the reason CC sucked tonight is that he didn’t try.
If I could roll my eyes harder, I’d see the back of my freakin’ skull.
Yeah good call. Cause CC just didn’t care tonight, that was his problem.
Wait now, I never said he didn’t care just that he didn’t care as much as Ross in Jersey.
I’m pretty sure he cares a lot more than I do. He’s the one that is getting paid to throw baseballs, after all.
Guaranteed money, takes away his incentive to play his hardest.
Why was he so good last postseason then?
….why am I bothering.
Yes, he wasn’t trying. That’s it.
How can they bring the tying run to teh plate when it’s already over?!?!11
Surprising outcome is surprising.
Lol, that was poetic.
Captain DP rears his ugly head.
Next inning they’ll get it done(?).
What makes you think it will be anything different than these fucking assholes did the rest of the night?
Because the Yankees have the best offense in baseball and … why am I responding to this?
Were you eating your shoe after they came back against Liriano late in the game?
Yes, I gladly ate crow here. Read the recap thread after Game 1, gladly admitted I was wrong.
Then this makes no sense.
Tonight’s been worse by miles?
Well, that covers about all the things that can go wrong.
A-Rod didn’t get gangrene……. yet
don’t jinx it.
You mean Robbie.
He’s to lazy to get gangrene
At least then they’d get out of his shitty contract. It’s not like their shitting pitching can deal with this Rangers O and the Rangers Staff has a huge advantage here.
For a dude that talks with such strong language, you’re really pretty pathetic.
Totally hurt here.
At least we’re getting all the evil out in one awful game.
i’m of hte position to not renew jeter contract
Maybe if hanram was a free agent or something. Even then, thats crazy…
Jetes the man
Our 1-3 hitters suck ass tonight.
sorry make that 1-4
You know they’ll hit in the 6th because of the due system.
you are probably right.. but until now, not good AB’s
Hitters period really, though Granderson has been good I guess.
I’m perfectly fine with letting Jeter walk this summer. Go help resurrect a new franchise and fanbase. I can’t stand seeing those GIDPs anymore. Sickening.
Haha. Nice one.
Yeah, Jeter sure has the ability to resurrect a franchise at the tender age of 36.
Speaking from a business perspective. He has the ability to get fans in the seats. A lot of teams need help in that department.
Safe to say those good at bats from the ALDS didn’t carry over for Jeter
Safe to say it’s only the first game.
…That’s not over.
Yep… back in regular season form. Yikes.
They scored the most runs in baseball in the regular season.
Ya, that is an effective stat. always means a win.
You can’t be serious…
Whether you are or not, for my sanity I’ll just assume that everything you say from now on is a joke…
Everyone that could go wrong, has gone wrong for the yanks so far this game… 5 really hard hit balls right at rangers. And yet, the rangers drop in a couple of bloop singles and turn it into runs.
they haven’t committed any errors. Thats something right?
Can we take some of that money we are going to give jeter and put it toward the cliff lee fund?
Yankees need to have a big inning against Wilson in the 6th, work him to 100 pitches and feast on the Rangers bullpen. We’re in a similar situation to Game 1 in the ALDS and this is how that game went down.
Some are shocked that people are saying CC hasn’t been an ace this postseason. I’m sorry, but he hasn’t. He’s given up 8 runs in his two starts. He put us in position to lose both ballgames. The offense bailed him out vs. the Twins. Look at the other 3 aces currently in the postseason. These are what I would call true aces. Halladay- no hitter. Lincecum- 2 hitter. Cliff Lee- 2 wins. Sabathia- 8 runs given up, 0 wins.
I’m glad you used such large sample sizes to back up your facts and ignored the numbers he put up this season and last year’s playoffs.
I didn’t say he wasn’t an ace in the season or last year. I said this year’s postseason. 8 runs in 2 games is something I would expect from AJ Burnett. We’ll now need CC to pitch game 4 because I don’t see us beating Lee in game 3. Hopefully he can turn it around.
He was bad this game. He was good in game 1. He didn’t put the team in a position to lose, he kept the game close and gave them a chance to lose. Try looking at it from a more positive perspective. He’s clearly better than he was tonight.
I’m glad you ignored his career post-season numbers…which are quite shitty compared to his career regular season numbers.
youre right he hasnt had an ace-like outing yet. hope it happens soon….
long rest for CC is a killer. i bet if we throw him out on short rest he throws a shutout or sumthing close to it.
LOL, two starts negate an entire season. Great logic.
slow down that heart rate dude. CC will be back and this series will be a long one.
CC has a win.
Actually CC has a win. A WIN!!!!
/that’s all you care about anyway’d
Mike, I love you man.
(Ok, 99.6% of that is the lead in to the post)
please move granderson up the lineup.
Damn, this has been a classic “Yankees in September” game for the Yankees here, huh?
And it’s October.
Bad luck boys.
Cue asshole comment by Captain Jack
I think I’m going to start a music career and my first single will be “asshole comment” I’ll give you royalties if there are any.
nice pitch by joba
Joba for the turn around
I noticed someone, I think it was MikeD, asked where I’m surrounded by Phillies fans.
I live in the Lehigh Valley area of PA, and I work in Allentown. My call center is within walking distance of the Phillies’ AAA team stadium.
Just remember, all they really want is a split. They lost game 1 to Philly last year 6-1 in NY… didn’t matter in the end.
You forget the Cliff Lee factor. If we split and if we lose to Lee. We’re down 2-1 and A.J. Burnett to save the season.
That’s two big ifs. Cliff Lee is not Mike Scott, and these are not the ’86 Mets.
And one blessing in disguise about CC pitching horribly is that he can probably go in Game 4 now.
That is true. And Cliff Lee is better than Mike Scott.
Check Lee’s postseason numbers
Postseason numbers have zero predictive value, so you’ll excuse me if I don’t care.
He’s a great pitcher — it wouldn’t surprise me to see him throw a good game. It also wouldn’t surprise me to see him go 6 IP, 5 runs.
WHAT??? AJ sucks??? ya you’re right, but had to put some positive spin on the fact that they are getting their asses handed to them by CJ freakin wilson.
joba is bringing the heat
You cannot discuss this game without bringing up the 8-10 pitches on the outside corner not called strikes for CC and now Joba.
46 seconds ago
Too bad he’s not the ump.
good for him. according to the guys tweeting from ESPN, CC was simply terrible, no qualifier
I think even if CC does get those calls, he’s still in trouble.
Joba Joba he’s our man, if he can’t do it, Robertson can?
who hired these guys to commentate? how is game one of a 7 game series EVER a must win!?
When your ace pitches that game and their ace looms in Game 3, evidently.
Shit, even Francesa said today isn’t a must win.
That ernie jerkoff is infuriating in basketball, damn shame that virus spread to baseball
They’re just trying be overdramatic like always. People don’t give us much chance in game 3. I don’t see Burnett starting game 4 anymore. I expect CC to come back strong on 3 days rest.
time for our starter in the bullpen to act like one
Where did that miss?
Is Joba throwing a curveball? It doesn’t look like the slider…
Joba is hitting 97 but he doesn’t like that. He likes his slider.
wasnt that a strike?
nobody knows anymore.
Are you in Brazil, or a Brazilian in the states?
7 missed strikes for CC
2 for Wilson.
A Joba sighting.
Kit, I read some of your post from earlier and I can tell your irratated, so I will tread lightly. BUT…..I BLAME YOUR NOT SO SECRET CRUSH ON OLE NON DRINKING CJ FOR OUR BEING SHUT OUT TO THIS POINT
CAPS LOCKED for your viewing pleasure
cheer up buttercup:)
Hehe…thanks, Slappy. I needed the smile. And yeah, I’m booing him right now. It hurts, but it has to be done.
CJ is not cute for the rest of the ALCS.
lee is gardner’s brother, i’m 100 percent sure
too bad cory lidle didnt crash his plane on this stadium
wow bad feelings all around. lol
Out of line.
Completely uncalled for. I wouldn’t mind if you were banned for this comment.
This is one of numerous terrible comments tonight. Completely classless and has no place on this site.
I don’t think it’s fair to compare other things said tonight to this…
I think it’d be rebuilt by now.
This was the best response.
Probably the first time I actually slapped my forehead due to the internet.
The playoffs bring out the worst in people.
What the fuck is wrong with people tonight? My god, it’s a fucking baseball game.
“it’s a fucking baseball game”
Which is what is wrong with female sports fans.
I thought we’re all stupid, vacant ninnies who only watch because we think the guys are hot.
Now you’re really overstepping boundaries. Not only is Bex smarter, more informed and more well versed in baseball than you are, but that’s sexist and even if you’re joking, I don’t think it’s funny and I doubt she does too.
Yeah, you’re completely right…how dare I think a guy with a 1.68 postseason K/BB or a 5.05 post season RA is a choker; and how dare I think a team 5-0 going into the bottom of the 6th is going to lose a game…furthermore how DARE I think a team with a 1-0 advantage with Cliff Lee going twice more has the advantage to win a seven game series. Completely unfounded baseless assumptions.
I don’t even know what the fuck you’re talking about because I wasn’t referring to that at all. Throwing numbers at me won’t make me think you’re smarter. In fact, it makes you look desperate to prove a point that you didn’t make at me, so I don’t give a fuck about. I’m talking about you being idiotically sexist. Other than that, I have nothing to say to you.
“BEXY IZ SMURTER THAN U!!!!!!!!”
Logic, reason, and facts.
NUMBERZ DON”T MATTUR 2 ME UR JUST DESPERATE!!!!!111!!!!
Seriously, you sound like you’re twelve. I was defending her from your sexist bullshit. Which is still sexist, no matter how you cut it. Acting like a child also makes you look like an even bigger idiot.
I CAPZLOCK BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE A VALID ARGUMENTZ.
For one, I like Bexy…we disagree and she probably hates me, but she’s a good sports fan. Although the Andy Pettitte thing is a little weird, though nothing compared to the man crush I have on Derek Jeter or Didier Drogba, the world needs more good female sports fans, and I have serious respect for those who deal with the bullshit from most male sports fans. I was being facetious, and some people can’t take a joke…since I realized most people here have sand in their vagina (no pun/sexism intended) I included a winking smiley face which a master of the interwebz like myself understands to be “kidding.” You brought up the other shit smarter, better versed, etc. I attacked that, you ignored that because you can’t formulate a valid response to the points. And yes, you don’t have a valid argument.
How old are you? you need to be taught some manners. You have no respect for anyone here and don’t deserve to be aloud to comment, just beer boy.
just “like” beer boy.
At least you won’t be able to reproduce
I’ll just knock up your sister or daughter someday….how’s that sound?
that’s completely unexceptionable.
ok, can we please RELEASE THE BRACKMAN?
I don’t really have strong feelings either way about most Rangers’ players.
But I despise David Murphy.
I despise Hamilton and Ron Washington. Everyone says what great men these guys are. And somehow A-Rod is a monster. Haven’t they all shown they can change?
You couldn’t be more right. Just because A-Rod used a drug that effects his on-field performance he’s some how WORSE than an actual former addict and… possibly another addict, who really knows what Washington’s story is…
People make mistakes. Sorry for the entire human population being human.
I don’t like him either, but I have no specific reason. Disliked him the first time he walked to the plate against the Yankees. It’s the boxy, snake-like face.
I just can’t take these teams with their gimmicks. The antlers and the claw…I mean come on. Cowboy up! Rally monkey. Irritating.
Almost as irritating as DJ’s DPs and these AWFUL Conan ads
These terrible announcers, HEY-ZEUS!!!
Hit him Joba!!
I will give my left nut for the Yankees to win this game, just to repost all the stupid shit Captain Jack has already said.
Can we get that in writing? With or without anesthetic?
On second thought, would you settle for a kidney?
Yeah, I know some guys . . .
youre a real fan
I laughed. But please include Tachycardia. C’mon, Yanks, rally and win so we can have another one of Ross’ epic posts embarrassing people.
I’m pretty sure he’s just trolling. He says ok things when he wants.
No need to do that. He’s been wrong on so many other threads that you’d be ball-less in short order.
Either have fun with the trolls, or just ignore them entirely.
If they win I’ll gladly let you repost it all, hell I’ll gladly find it for you copy/paste it and tell everyone I was dead fucking wrong….sound good? Doesn’t take away from the fact CC fucking choked it up big time tonight and has pretty mediocre (at best) post season numbers.
I WILL FIGHT YOU TO THE DEATH CAPTAIN JACK
No really, if you don’t care about being wrong then what is your incentive for being so stupidly negative? Try being positive for a change, it feels a lot better when you win.
“if you don’t care about being wrong”
It’s the fucking internet.
As I said before a 5.05 postseason RA sounds like a choker to me, as much as chokers exist. Speaking of chokers…Alex Rodriguez ladies and gentlemen.
CC did not choke. If you think he choked you don’t understand baseball.
You would call that a success?
Does not performing mean choking? Or is that the only option?
Why Moseley. Let Joba out for a second inning.
I actually understand bringing in Joba , but I dont wanna see Moseley
If they don’t get any closer than why not Moseley? If they get a couple next inning then I would use some of the better guys.
Look how bad the strike zone was for Sabathia:
That’s awful. Still not a good outing though.
Yea he wasn’t good, but things would have been different with a different strike zone.
Zone has been pretty consistent. Ump didn’t make CC hang a slider to the MVP.
He put more people are on base
Yup. Bury that slider, and maybe it’s 2-0 right now.
It’s not good, but the large number of pitches way out of the zone pretty much sums it up for CC tonight. Command just not there.
How does Wilson’s look?
C’mon, offense. Couple of runs and you’re right back in it.
I was wondering how long Joba was going to get to pitch tonight. I’d like to see him come back for another inning.
I want the typing run to the plate , just to hear the cricket noise in that booth.
I think hate this booth more than anyone in the Rangers. Lol
The Yankees didn’t “take away” A-Rod. He was a trade and the Rangers were going to get rid of him no matter what. Teix went through the Braves and the Angels before he got to NY.
And for the record, the Rangers took Cliff Lee away from the Yankees.
U want objectivity, from this booth?
They let all kinds of idiots go to Yale.
please score some runs so I can step back from the ledge
It’s game 1. Even if they lose 50-0, there’s still a long way to go in the series.
Joba looked puffy in the face. I hope he’s sleeping well.
What the hell is the point of watching baseball if you can’t handle yourself like an adult and restrain from throwing a temper tantrum when the Yankees are losing?
Go challenge kindergartners to boxing matches if you want to remove doubt or adversity from sport?
Using the c-word, referencing Lidle’s death, etc. Grow the fuck up.
ZZ FTW. Thank you
Hey, look at the bright side…you’ll be able to use the same generic “I agree with this comment” response for the next ten years, at least.
Just copy and paste this and post it every few minutes. Should do the job.
Well done, ZZ. Well done.
Wait, you can challenge kindergartners to boxing matches?
Quality at bat from Swish
I thought this guy walked a lot of people?
You have to take a couple pitches in order to be walked.
These Conan blimp commercials are wearisome, but the one where he’s washing his desk is pure comedic gold. And simultaneously disturbing.
Wow, gotta love those first pitch hacks.
I’d imagine they get frustrated and try to hit 5 run homers. We have one of the more patient teams can’t bitch too much.
Swish, take a pitch?
first pitch swinging make Elmo sad
It’s time for some offense boys, do the damn thing. I’ve been as positive as possible tonight but it’s gettin late….A-Rod call Kate!!
What is this strike zone? Players have to be hating it.
That was ball 4
I didn’t think we were going to get shutout by cj wilson to be honest
Seriously, this offense has been inconsistent for two months… nothing has really changed. You have to expect more of this and hope they get better pitching from their Ace and the other starters.
have fun now nolan ryan, enjoy it. prostate cancer is gonna get you sooner than later.
That was uncalled for. Ban this man
Same guy with cory lidle, totally has it coming
How about a ban, mods?
All of a sudden Nolan Ryan knows something about winning baseball? Might have come in useful at some point after 1969 in a playing career that lasted almost 30 years.
nolan ryan is a cocksucker. george bush is running the show – and by running i mean paying bud selig and the umps extra to win games. nolan ryan is just a puppet.
What’s wrong with you?
Homophobia rooted in self loathing.
If having this make my night better is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
Yes, I know…I’m an awful person.
Hahaha did that inning really juts happen?
Guys – what is up with Jeter – he looks so lethargic and doing things he never used to do. I couldn’t believe he swung at Wilson’s first pitch earlier after Gardener walked on 5 pitches. Wilson was suddenly shaky and he just swings at the first pitch for a little pop up. Then he hits into a DP with Gradener on 1st.
Either age is catching up or he has some kind of injury. This isn’t the Jeter we know.
He’s dating the ‘sexiest woman alive’.. his mind is elsewhere.
He’s a #8 hitter hitting #1 because of who he is rather than what he can do. :shrug: Same thing all season.
His answer was probably more accurate than mine.
yeah but why – is it age, or are the rumors about an injury true? Kinda sad to see someone who was so steady and reliable turn into such a liability.
Did you not watch him hit in the ALDS? He’s having a bad game… just like the rest of the team.
hes old – what do you want him to do? he can’t do shit because his body is breaking down. but yeah offer him 20+ million a year. fkn pussy management.
Thanks guys. Too bad Granderson can’t bat 1-9.
arod can’t leave fast enough tonite
Frustrated that this team has rolled over and died today. I know its no one’s fault and stuff like this happens, but agitating nonetheless.
It’s crazy frustrating. Not sure all the hitters were following the same game plan – my man Jeter for one.
Game plan? What game plan?
man they look just awful
Its okay, we’ll get them tomorrow. If we manage to stop them from a shutout it’ll be ok
Still three to go. Just need a little, ummm, what’s it called…oh, yeah, hitting.
Fact: CC Sabathis IS an ace. One bad start doesn’t say otherwise. So he gave up 5 runs in 5 innings to Texas. Big effing deal. Ever thought that maybe the 8 days of rest made him rusty?
Fact: One bad start doesn’t mean he’s going to pitch poorly in a couple days. He’s a good pitcher, had poor command (due to rust), unlucky bloop hits and an untimely homer to the MVP.
Also, IT’S ONE GAME! Teams have come back from 1 game deficits. Even 3 game deficits!. One game does not foreshadow how the team will play the other 6.
Their crappy offense tonight? Gee, I don’t know, maybe they’re a little rusty after not playing for week. The only thing I’m worried about are Jeter and A-Rod’s at bats. Those could be a little better IMO.
Fact: It’s one game, that still is not over. And if they do lose? Big fucking deal. Get over it. It’s just a game. Just be happy that you’re going to wake up tomorrow in a home and not on the streets struggling to find food.
They’re the Yankees they’re not going to go home and surrender and cry about a (likely) loss. They’re men. They’ll forget about it and try to dominate tomorrow.
Ugh whatever I’m like already over it.
man can’t wait to see cliff lee after how great we did vs CJ wilson.
that ‘s right everything will go according to script.
I want to see the Yankees BOMB Lee. Just to see (besides a win) all the reactions from the people who say Cliff Lee can’t pitch a poor game.
Sigh, the Yankees aren’t doing a good job following the scouting report on CJ Wilson. They’re not even giving him a chance to be wild.
And *gulp*, Dustin Moseley…
yeah Mosley – forfeit time – look at the bright side – at least it isn’t Gaudin….
according to pitch f/x, he’s only thrown 4 first pitches out of the zone. He has thrown a lot of second pitches out of the zone though:
True, I don’t mind first pitch swings when it’s a good pitch to hit. But I’d take exception with someone with a history of being wild. Give the guy a chance to beat himself and don’t make it easy for him.
Funny how they just showed that only 15 were “strikes”. That’s how small the zone is tonight, it wasn’t just CC.
Lol that graphic said ALDS
C’mon, no one should be surprised at anything other than CC pulling an AJ.
…and that’s baseball. I’m looking forward to AJ pulling a CC.
Moseley is in. This is automatically a win.
Terrible job by the offense in this game.
Calling 3 shutout innings for Moseley, and resulting calls from Captain Jack saying he should have started the game.
Moseley has a Hughesian back of the head hair poof going on now
If that means he can develop pitches like Hughes, I’m in favor.
So the top of the order is pretty good tonight…
is this the time when we say, ok, get it all out, it just can’t get worse so it must get better?
Brooks Conrad playing third base?!!?!
And now Arod boots an easy one – they look like old, disinterested millionaires who are playing out the string
Oh ffs where were you when they swept the Twins? Nowhere.
of course your right – they looked great against mediocre pitching in Minnesota. I ws only commenting on the way they look tonight.
excellent, choke-rod is back.
Would you rather that happen in a close game instead?
Also, was he choke rod last year with all of his game tying homeruns?
It’s an error, it happens.
you’re just begging to be banned, aren’t you?
Good, just get all the evil out in one night. It’s like a large bowel movement. The gods will repay us with 7 IP 1 ER AJ Burnett.
Ugh. You know a game is not your game when your gold glove third basemen has an error.
It happens. Just get all this crap out of their system tonight.
They haven’t played in a week. They’re just getting back into the groove of things. Not a big deal.
get the poison out raven
Now playing the Texas Rangers, the Cincinnati Reds!
If we lose this series, does our chances of getting lee goes down? since we’re probably going to see the need of having another ace in rotation justtt in case one ace isn;t having a good day.
No, I’m pretty sure Lee will go to whatever team gives him the most money. It’s not like the Yankees aren’t a perennial winner.
Olney said Yanks will get Lee for 5 years, 115 million.
Sounds realistic to me. Anyone think that the Rangers can really afford that? New ownership be damned, they can’t make that committment.
doesn’t that double their payroll? honestly Texas i think is so high on themselves right now they might offer lee a crazy contract which he would accept. Then like Arod they are going to regret it in a year or two when everyone else on their team sucks.
Well I keep reading and hearing how Nolan Ryan and that other guy aren’t as stupid as Tom Hicks.
well if we don;t get him, i hope we drive the price up enough to make the rangers regret it
I really think anyone who pays Lee anything close to this will deeply regret it.
I hear you. Personally, since it’s not my money, I’d go for that as a Yankees fan.
After their first WS Victory they’ll have the added fan base, since the Cowboys now blow.
Effin Nightmare, no?
Texas crowd exhibiting their class and eloquence.
It’s hardcore redneck territory down there. Don’t expect anything but the best from Texas!
Yea, and they’re all frustrated Cowboys fans, too, so you’ve got to consider that.
I like the fact the broadcast crews never mention the boorishness of these anti-Yankees chants. Like if they ever heard a Yankee Stadium crowd chant “Rangers Suck!”, they’d ignore it? Tim McCarver would probably do a 3 inning dissertation on how disgusting NY fans are.
Moseley looks really friggin good. WTF!?
Damn Alex. we need you locked in
I hate being the only rational Yankee fan in my house. I routinely hear my dad call A-Rod a fag when he makes an out. I also hear him say the game is over in the fifth inning (to be fair, he’s been following the Yanks since the 70s. He’s seen more baseball than I have in my whole life).
I’m right there with you. I’m trying my best to avoid my dad but he’s already given up on the game so no worries.
He may have seen more baseball, but you sound like you understand it better.
I’m 29. My dad is 61. He’s been watching since the mid-50′s.
I’m still trying to convince him why Felix was the best pitcher, his win total notwithstanding.
Why can’t we ignore the trolls instead of 325235235 people responding to them?
It’s obvious they are trolls so don’t waste comments on saying them to shut up when it won’t work. It’s a bitch to load. Pretending to be trolls too should be kept at a minimum.
Gotta fight the good fight, my man.
Normally I don’t mind but the playoffs + shit connection due to storm makes this page take forever to load.
I probably shouldn’t say it since I used to abuse it but it would be better to let the trolls not get fed.
Boy, what a shame. They had the pitching matchup and really shit the bed.
Good luck, Hughesie.
Is this a little league game now?
Because I thought they still played 9 innings in the majors.
I’m making a predicition. I doubt that they win. They CAN win. They MIGHT win. But I don’t see it. Don’t be a dick when people AREN’T overreacting.
The way our offense is hitting tonight, I don’t think it’s too unrealistic to say the game is over.
Could they come back? Yes.
But they’re just not having good atbats.
CC didn’t exactly keep the offense in the game, but, then again, the offense didn’t exactly keep CC in the game.
Robbie just made you AWARE.
Down 6-1 after 5 innings (6-2 after 6) and they came back to win.
Sure, it’s not likely, but it’s not impossible.
Of course. And I’d like to point out that I never said it was impossible. But I don’t think they’re going to win.
They hit the ball hard, but right at the defenders. CC definitely looked rusty.
Nice job by Moseley and Joba.
Nicely done, Mose.
just call him moses.
That’s my brother’s name…so it’s kind of awkward.
hmmm….ok, call him the holy roller.
Here comes da BOOM
Dustin = Ace
rotation is now Moseley/Hughes/Andy/Moseley/AJ/Moseley/Moseley
Since we’re dreaming why not add Joba in? Give him at least 1 start.
Wow, way to reward the faithfuls.
Come on guys.
Well, the bullpen has looked good so far. I’ll take whatever I can get. A couple hits/semblance of a rally and runs would be pretty cool as well.
On the board, baby. Ain’t over yet.
Don’t ya know?
CANO! thank you.
ROBBIE GOES BOOM. Four runs, guys. Get it going.
Robinson Cano — still incredibly talented.
Nice somebody showed up.
Someone forgot to tell Robbie the game is over
Thing Of Beauty
YEA!!! Moseley’s magic made Cano do that.
Ribbie! I’ll take it
you’re turn now Mr. Thames
someone was ready for a fastball damn.
Fuckin a, here we go. Good timing to start a Cano hot streak too
Robbie we love you long time!
Who’s phrase is “Slam range”??
OK. What is with all these dumb-ass braided necklaces all over MLB this year? I thought this was a game played by adult men.
The necklaces are actually a common occurance.
*occurrence. Excuse me and my typos.
That’s been going on for a few years. They’re woven with titanium and supposed to relieve pain. Or something.
it ups your game
Sorry, but many of these players are not adults….they’re young, early 20 somethings (CJs 29) who play a game for a living.
Darling saying that Gerry Davis has been spot on. UGH maybe if you’re rooting for the Rangers.
Why would Darling root for the Yankees? Grew up a Red Sox fan, played for the Mets, saw the Yankees completely obscure the accomplishments of the 1986 Mets by sustaining a mini-dynasty…he’s in a long line of envious haters.
One run down, four more to go…well, I guess five.
Let’s face it though – Texas looks really good – confident, swinging well, solid in the field, smart manager. And they haven’t used Lee yet. Should be a very tough series.
It’s 6.2 innings into the game. Who knows, they could fall apart and make six errors tomorrow night and strike out ten times.
Yeah, and martians could land and disrupt the game, but both scenarios are unlikely. Texas is a solid team, playing with a lot of confidence. Not a tight, psyched out bunch like Minnesota was.
Texas playing a shit game = chances of alien invasion? Okay, now THAT’S fuckin’ crazy.
Yeah, that’s why they had the supreme confidence to lose both of their home games in the ALDS.
He’s being rational. =/
I think you were a little quick on the “doomed” trigger there, bex. The comment was pretty level-headed.
Yeah, it’s the pessimists that are being unreasonable here.
You are being unreasonable. And the fact that you keep pretending you’re not is bullshit. How about we call it a draw and we all shut the fuck up.
Easy there, Capt. I’m not siding with you, either.
There’s a difference between being pessimistic and being… well, the way you are.
RS was also whining about how old and disinterested they looked earlier and completely wrote off their win against Minnesota, so he doesn’t have the benefit of the doubt. Too bad.
“There’s a difference between being pessimistic and being… well, the way you are.”
It’s easy to look good when the guy starting against you throws 30+ pitches, many way out of the zone, and gives you a three-run lead in the first
No one ever doubted they’re a worthy team. But they’ve had circumstances fall their way tonight
You mean the team that’s winning 5-1 and playing at home looks good and confident, and their manager is smart for keeping in the lefty who had been pitching a shutout for 6 innings?
And they have two Cliff Lee starts left.
Pack it up and go home, then.
Too lazy to leave the house anyways.
I don’t think he was being irrational. Most of what he said were facts. They’re team is in good position to win tonight, and they have their ace coming. We’ve got an injured Andy, homer prone Hughes and A.J.
However, Andy was nice in the ALDS, Hughes was dominant at HOME against the Twins and Sox. And A.J. could be dominant.
IDK where I’m going with this, but I think he’s being rational in saying that this series won’t be as easy as it was against Minnesota.
He’s putting the “looks confident” “swinging well” and “smart manager” narratives on this game, which is silly. What team winning 5-1 doesn’t look confident? It doesn’t mean what he’s trying to make it sound like. We’re not losing because the Rangers are the more confident team…
I know. That was a little silly. But I think the intent of his comment was that it “should be a tough series>” That’s hardly irrational to say. Maybe the context was, but that part in general is fine.
DAMN! I muted the game during the commercials and completely missed that HR! =(
Robinson Cano’s season was really fun to watch this year…glad he’s still making October, still kinda fun…and Jesus Christ that was a shit call.
We were unsurprisingly too patient, and they were surprisingly patient.
anyone, Tying run coming up this game? I think so
Another great call by Gerry Davis.
Another great call by the ump.
Good pitching is good pitching. Yanks didn’t have much to squander today.
Jorge, just awful
and I would like to see the ump’s chart tom. Just saying
Ump is being inconsistent on that corner for both teams.
doesn’t make it OK
I didn’t say it was OK. Saying someone is inconsistent isn’t a compliment. The second part was a matter of fact.
Would this lead be Neftali proof?
I wonder if baseball players do anything to get each other pumped up when they’re down like they do in basketball and football. Like just walk around screaming and getting everyone jacked up to go out and get it done.
Washington tried this but everyone just thought he was back on coke.
Josh Hamilton was disappointed that he didn’t have any.
That doesn’t work in baseball. You can’t go out there and bust skulls like you can in football. If you try to swing harder or pitch faster you’re just going to miss or throw balls. They have to just stay calm and relaxed and maintain the approach that’s gotten them here.
That’s generally counter productive in baseball. It’s very different from other sports where you can just try harder, run faster, and do better. Pushing too hard or getting to pumped up generally leads to more failure than success.
Zambrano got to go to therapy for doing that very thing.
Haha. Good point.
this is hard to watch
What a corny name- The Vocal Minority. Seriously? That name could only come from Texas
Or Richard Nixon.
“The Great Silent Majority” sounds similar, yet different, if you know what I mean.
To date myself: the backup singers in the Sondheim musical “Company” — which opened on Broadway some months after Nixon’s Silent Majority speech — were called The Vocal Minority, So, this isn’t even original.
Yea, I mean I got the reference, but where else would they think to make a play on words of that? Maybe Kentucky too I guess.
Please…no more pictures of Bush
Seeing him makes me want the Yankees to win so much more.
Just a reminder of who destroyed our country and how stupid it is that people all over the country are about to give power back to the fool party that did it with him. Want to make a bad night worse? Keep showing that idiot.
This is a politics free zone.
They show bush now on TBS? Wow, times change…
And soon they will be in NY and we will have to deal with that schmuck Guliana on screen ever two minutes.
You make me sad.
I don’t know. He goes when he wants people to see him there. I hope he knows he’ll never win a presidential election. I don’t think he’s even win NY.
I’d like to see the reaction in the Bronx if they showed Dubya on the big screen.
Heh, people at a bar (like the other Rebecca) said he got booed.
And rightfully so.
Maybe, maybe not, but c’mon with the politics people.
You know, this game has just really been a whole batch of unlucky breaks, right?
I’m not that close to a TV, but haven’t we seen:
–a tight strike zone
–Hamilton’s HR barely getting out
–bloop hits before the double
Obviously the offense has been a whole lot of suck, but it’s not quite as bad as we’re making it out to be, right? Of course this is of little consolation if the score holds.
We’ve basically had every bad break today. Makes me believe that things will fall in line from now on.
To be fair CC pitched pretty poorly, it could have been a bit better but also a lot worse.
This is still just one game, and doesn’t assure the Rangers of anything. People just need to stop overreacting.
Hey come’on – we’re New York baseball fans – when we lose we get pissed and talk about it being the end of the world. When we win we are just mildly relieved of our anxiety until the next game starts. The only day in the year when we are truly happy is the day they win the championship, if and when that happens.
J-E-T-S, jets, Jets, Jets
You may be the stereotypical Yankee fan, I for one am not
Absolutely. No one in the press would buy this analysis, since to them it’s all you won or you lost — but, as big a lead as it seems Texas has, you wouldn’t have to tweak much to reverse the score. Imagine, one of the Yanks’ hard-hit balls with two on split the outfielders instead of the one Texas got. Very different game.
Mose trying to look badass. Good to see.
Dustin = Super Ace
Hamilton struck out looking twice? Pigs must be flying in Arlington.
That was an incredible pitch.
Nolan looks like he’s been hitting the pasta since he called it quits. Wonder what he could hit on the radar gun today?
100… kilometers per hour…
I bet he could hit 70+
The reason I ask has more to do with Sandy Koufax, but I’ve linked Koufax and Ryan in my mind since I was a kid because of how hard they threw.
About fifteen years ago I had dinner with a guy who used to be the PR Director for the Dodgers through at least part of the 1980s. He mentioned Koufax, so I stopped him (his first name is Steve) and said, “Steve, I have a question regarding a story I remember reading in the Sporting News about ten years ago about Koufax in Spring Training from the mid to late 80s.” Steve stops me and says, “I know exactly what you’re going to ask me.” So I reply, “okay, I’m game.” Steve says, “So you want to know if Koufax threw 90 mph while he was coaching for the Dodgers in spring training.” Steve was right. I wanted to know if that was true. Koufax hadn’t pitched in basically twenty years, wasn’t in pitching shape, was in his early 50s, and had retired because he had arthritis in his left arm. Anyway, Steve replied, it was true, because he was there and actually placed the story. So that got me to wondering how the F hard to Koufax throw in his prime?
…and by extension, I’m not so sure that Ryan, even overweight and now in his early 60s, might not still throw in the 80s.
Lance berkman will hit a HR in this game…. i got a feeling
WOOO WOOOO, that (the rest of) tonights gonna be a good night!
Yea that scary texas homefield advantage has yielded a whopping 1 playoff series win. Fucking tools.
where’s the optimism?
Extreme optimism is as stupid as extreme negativity. I’m sick of these announcers saying pointless trash, has nothing to do with that though.
I’m no RABbi, but I honestly don’t want to see any political comments. It’s a fucking baseball game, don’t bring your political views into it. Just watch and enjoy/be frustrated.
Completely agree. Let’s talk about the one thing that (supposedly) unites us: the Yankees.
How about my “put me in power, and I’ll execute Conan O’Brien”? Is that a political comment?
I hate all Rangers fans now, if I knew the names of the other ones I’d call them out by name too.
burned my CC jersey, just ordered a Moseley jersey, overnight shipping
ZOMG WHY DIDN’T WE START MOSELEY???!!!!11
I’m obviously joking LOL
GRIT LEADS OFF THE INNING. LETS GO GRIT! LETS GO GRIT!
Come on everyone.
I want Conan to be first against the wall.
Conan > Leno
Letterman > Conan + Leno + George Lopez
They’re all awful, and will join Conan at the wall.
Who cares? Leno is going to choke on his own chin one of these days.
If they come back to win this game, Moseley has to be up for player of the game. Incredible relief work that no one would have expected.
If the Rangers win, Gerry Davis: Player of the game!
Whiskey and Moseley have made this game more enjoyable. I’d say it’s a 50/50 split.
Moseley is pitching great. Clearly this is just a bizarro game and all will return to normal next game as the Yankees will romp. Obvs.
I’m referring to it as a game played in “Shit Narnia.”
well, moseley is giving us a chance.
How about another spillover thread for goodluck?
I take it back.
This is the inning! Here comes the pain.
GRiT GRuTNER!!!! LETS GO!!! Mash this lefty with close to 100 walls this year!
Damn that felt good
THIS IS THE INNING
BRETT FUCKING GARDNER!!!!!!!!
ok – here we go!
Nice, Brett. Be careful, though, don’t want you hurt.
Grit Gutner hustles out a scrappy hit.
Gritty, gutty play by Gardner.
GRIT BABY! First to Carrie ever got excited about a Yankee hit in the whole playoffs.
LOOK AT THAT GRIT!
Huge play by Gardner. Take advantage.
Rarely do you see a player slide in to first and say it was a smart move. That was a smart move.
He might have scared Wilson a bit too. Wilson probably wouldn’t want to step on Gardner.
great hustle, but i hate diving headfirst into first.
I think it actually worked that time.
Jeesh, love ya BG but don’t slide into first…
Oh shut the fuck up.
I love you, Captain Jack.
Uncalled for, dude. It’s a valid concern.
I’m saying, Kit. Why does Captain Jack have to pick on little ol’ me?
’cause you’re rational and that angers him, like it would any good troll. He’s just doing his job.
This is my concern Dude
For fuck’s sake, there’s plenty of bad things to bitch about tonight, I think I proved this in spades…don’t bitch about the good things.
Honestly, and I say this calmly and without any intent to argue or start shit because I know all of us just really want the Yankees to win, but he was expressing a valid concern. Brett sliding opens him up for injury. We’re proud he did it, but we’re concerned about his health ’cause we need him.
Another reason why I hate female sports fans…they care about the health and safety of others.
Well, I could care less about you. Mostly care about the guys who play the game, because they’re actually…productive.
Finally you do something halfway awesome.
Oh, I get it. Dude, I wasn’t bitching. I was worried BG was going to jam his thumb or something. Just thinking about the team.
A jammed thumb would cause Gardner’s grit to go into overdrive and have the effect of steroids times the effect of assfucking Kate Hudson to the power of having a picture of you depicted as a centuar.
The only concern is injury (which was very close on that play). A head first slide will get you to the bag quicker than running.
Which is what JerseyDutch was concerned about.
is it possible?
This is where we feast on Nolan Ryan’s outdated pitching policy. We take advantage of a tiring Wilson and we bring it to a tired Neftali.
C’mon, Capitan. See some pitches, do some good.
way to work the count derek
Steal please. Steal, steal, steal. It will be a GIDP if you don’t. Steal, steal, steal.
GRIT AND GRIT
And we were saying?
YEA!!! Take Wilson out of the game!
HERE IT COMES GUYS
Leaving Wilson in = mistake.
Yeah, still long way but we believe!
Captain doing work. Don’t look now, we’re only down 3…
Jeter is a washed up nobody who could lick the snot off his upper lip.
I just jumped off of the couch and fist pumped.
Perhaps, but it was a Joba-esque fist pump. Not a desperate, tan asshole-at-a-club fist pump. There’s a dirty joke in there somewhere…
Can we get a bloop and a blast?
Not over folks
Jeter has made me look like a fool yet again. I bow my head to you El Capitan.
Do Gardner’s feet actually hit the ground? Wow. That dude is f-a-s-t.
Well, I’m heading for home. No more Phillies fans to deal with till Monday.
And now they’ve scored again. C’mon guys, YOU CAN FUCKING DO THIS!!!
Jeter is back! I take it back. He is the MVP. Sign him for 15 years with Arod money….
Suck it Nolan Ryan! Thats why you take pitchers out when they’re tired dick!
Wait — I was just told Jeter was done. Are we saying some judgments might have been made prematurely?
did u see his st 3 ABs?
at the very least get jeter in and we are in bloop and blast territory, but i demand oh so much more
Rally time, guys. More runs, please.
Ok, Yankees. You’ve regained my attention
Time for the middle of the order to go to work. This is the game right here with the big boys coming up. Have to get Jeter home at the very least.
RUN BRETT, RUN! Capt CLUTCH!! Comebacks a bitch if you rock antlers and coke.
Quick Cashman, 5 years/80mil before his price just keeps going up
Wilson should have never been pitching to Jeter. That was really stupid move by Washington.
Hopefully it bites him in the ass big time.
Just get it to A-rod…
It looks like the bats are starting to get their timing right after the long layoff.
Good BABIP finally.
GGBG! The headfirst slide followed by coming all the way around. why isn’t he leading off?
Because Jeter leads off when Swisher’s in the lineup
Despite looking completely hittable, Darren Oliver has been pretty good.
6 outs left to score 3 runs!! We can do it!!!
Let’s. Do this thing boys and girls
Martin Lawrence is pitching.
If Lee doesn’t scare me, imagine Darren Freakin Oliver…
Hey, maybe this time Oliver will blow the game for someone else just like they blew the game for him in 1996.
Doesn’t Tex mash Oliver or is that Cano?
robbie’s 6-for-10. swish 0-for-6
This is third time round the order, right? Seems like we always come alive then.
Swisher needs to take some of that Jeter acting class.
Haha, I was thinking he should have just taken one. Particularly that second one.
Darren, don’t be scared!
Wow, remarkable about Oliver starting in ’96 series. Maybe Rusty Greer will make an appearance as well.
A-Rod grand slam would kill Texas fans.
That wasn’t a .
I don’t know about strike 2.
Where the FUCK was this called before?
The umpire wants Texas to win, at least.
Gerry Davis has been awful. Call your tight zone, but call it consistently.
That’s asking way too much.
Let’s fucking GO
Teix looked great from the right side in the division series and has been much better from that side this season.
This is their big chance.
Tying run to the plate!
IBB to get to A-Rod?
Well, there’s the tying run.
tying run at the plate.
Getting interesting… good thing the Yankees don’t give up as quickly as the fans, eh?
And the top of thread prediction comes through
tex 2-for-4 with walk vs. oliver
LETS GO BABY!!! walk it out oh walk it out…
Yankees Walk it out
Axisa you are a genius
Tying run at the plate. Tex. Too poetic not to happen.
this game is so over, you don’t even know how over it is.
Great walk by Swish
come on Tex give us a game wrecker
You can see it in Texas’ dugout, and in the fans, they are worried about this.
Mr. Axisa called it, tying run up!
I will cry laughing if Tex and A-Rod help take the lead.
WEAR THAT SHIT YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE
Even when the Yankees are doing good stuff you can’t help but moan and bitch can you?
I’m an angry person. The only things that make me happy are the sadness of others, Yankee victories, and kittens.
I like leaping Corgis myself.
Tex could of pulled a Jeter their.
Oliver falling behind in the counts.. please keep doing that.
Darren Oliver is a man. He’s 40
oh, what dram here at the Ballpark in Arlington!
…If dram had an a…
why would he be talking about the memory storage?
Swish looks pretty pissed.
These announcers are so fucken rooting for the Rangers it’s sickening!
Grand slam please!
A-Rod will the salami, calling it.
Make them pay Centaur, make them pay.
gotta love this team…
no matter the outcome, u just gotta love how this team ALWAYS finds a way to come back and get the tying run to the plate
lets go a-rod.
YOU HAVE UPSET THE EGO OF AROD. PREPARE TO DIE.
arod 6-for-21 vs. oliver w 2 HRs. shocked if oliver stays in
A-ROD do it NOW. LETS FUCKING GO
Alright, Alex, you can do it, baby.
Loaded for Alex… just need a base hit.
Hmm…any other Darrens in the bullpen? Darren Dreifort perhaps?
HERE WE GOOOO!
Well, Oliver handled his two batters.
Centaur mode: Engage.
Oh yeah, time to crush some hearts.
“Is this their moment, can they score, they always score/”
is that what they said? i have them muted. too drab, unless tex does something good
A-Rod vs the Irishman
arod 0-for-2 vs. o’day with 2 Ks
very definitive sample size.
let’s do this Arod, time for some payback for all the boos
Holy shit, this would have to be one of the best comebacks in playoff history if they really pull it off…
atl, 96. i ran into the street outside my house yelling like a lunatic when leyritz hit the bomb. that was a comeback.
It’s time for A-Rod to re-establish the post-season heroics.
Bum-bum-BUUUUUUM! This is getting good.
“The Yankees will bring the tying run to the plate in this game.”
how bout the go-ahead run
Here we come just like I said! We’re one hit away from winning this ballgame.
Well it did not take very long for this game to go from being over, to just beginning.
Bases clearing double.
Holy crap. Three chances at one big hit.
Axisa, you are a prophet from your mother’s basement.
what!? i always say they’ll bring the tying run, and they always do
LMAOOO Ouch babe.
Let’s go! Cmon Alex, a base hit!
I would love a grand slam but a base hit would still do A-Rod!
base hit baby!!!
Just like that… a one run game. FUCK YEAH!
YEAH!!!! Your turn, Robbie. One more run ties it.
Fucking un-clutch stat padder!
let’s go Ribbie, get us the lead
Smoked, this game is ours….
THIS GAME IS SO OVER!!!!!!!!!
a-rod! lets go cano!
OMG that about took his fucking head off…
So apparently in baseball you play 9 innings.
this is just what we do
I was told by you guys that this game was over in the first inning, though.
I didn’t call it “over” til the 4th rofl.
Oh yeah. Oh yeaaaah.
that was your triple play ball, but you are not a third baseman
Darren “it’s a brand new” o’Day
Are we still doomed or not?
FUCK YOU ALEX!!! If it not a homer, then you should die!!!
Michael Young just pulled a Roger Dorn. lol
Nah, he’s not pretty enough.
Is Treanor going to threaten to beat his ass?
Cliff Lee is going to sleep with his wife.
No more of this ole’ sh*t!
That was fucken awesome!
Ron Washington is the gift that keeps giving…
Darren Oliver with the infinite ERA. That always amuses me.
Or rather, the undefined ERA.
Well, I did not think this would happen, but I am ok with it.
Hmmm… looks like the predictions about the ridiculous pitching changes was right on the money.
Crow is about to be served… stand tuned for further developments…
I got a berkman kinda feeling… its odd
Never, ever give up! If the two runners on base score we will win this ballgame. Texas has a trash bullpen, all we had to do was get CJ out!
You’re saying this?! Seriously? I agree, but be consistent.
Wait, weren’t you… never mind.
sucks to be o’day, one pitch and he’s out
Never count this team out. Never.
I want. To Crush. Their spirit.
Lets keep it rolling.
I love comeback baseball.
if we pull this out Texas will be pretty demoralized
that’s the understatement of the season
I LOVED THAT, don’t get me wrong…but I’ve been getting sick of Rangers fans lately and really wanted the Granny.
Yes, I know I’m an asshole, no one reply to this comment unless it’s “I understand”
There you go, Captain Jack. There’s nothing wrong with being a little selfish, just don’t be mean to other people.
All forgiven, CJ.
7 BBs in 9 IPs. take one robbie
Take that George W! (I still love u tho)
please Robbie, destroy this lefty
Robbie loves the side arming lefties, if I’m not imagining things…
Its moments like this I wish I was back living in NYC. Keep hope alive!!!!!!
Cano V. LOOGY. lets go.
HOLY SHIT BALLS
TIE GAME MOTHERFUCKERS
one time baby
IT’S FUCKING TIED!
Well, if the game goes extras how long till Washington needs to use regular players to pitch.
Robbie Cano is so absurdly good.
HOLE E SHIT
DON’T YA KNOW!!!!!
Thank you Robbie!
Naysayers, CAN I GET AN AMEN?!
Not over yet, but you can get half of one:
I was actually talking about the people who said we couldn’t come back from a five run deficit in the last thread, but I’ll accept it.
I’m now nervous about Wood and regret making this comment.
FUCK YES!!!!!! TIE GAME!!!!!
TIE GAME BITCHES.
Wow !! This is amazing.
so over…..so fucking over…the yankees just suck.
head = exploded
I loved that bobble by mvp centerfield
Kerry Wood – MO.
GET ‘ER DONE!
Yes, yes YEP! Hovys home!
MVP! MVP! MVP!
Robbie go Boom
talk about overmanaging
Next victim please.
Man, and their is no outs.
My mother just yelled at my dad and I and took the remote to turn it off because we were not watching and just listening to the radio,,
Then she pulls rank and says, “you damn Yankee fans need to listen to Yogi. Shame on you!”.
Just a flyball.
That’s all they need with the Wood-Rivera combo looming.
I think i like Ron Washington. He might be worse than Torre at this BP management.
STILL NO OUTS.
Ron Washington gonna break Girard’s record for # of pitchers used in one inning.
The TBS booth is very silent and depressed right now.
So Berkman pinch hits here, yes?
This game is killing me!
5 pitchers=0 outs
I almost just ripped my shirt off after that hit. I need to relax.
Ron Washington is going to pull another rabbit out of his hat.
This is crow I’m willing to fucking eat haha
Dustin Moseley = ALCS MVP
Am I asleep and dreaming now?
Mike, you are a prophet.
Wow I wish I didnt jump off that bridge 2 innings ago
Fun Fact: we have Dustin Moseley to thank.
(And Grit, and Jete, and Swish, and Tex, and A-Rod, and Cano, and…)
It’s never good (for the team pitching) when you bring in the 5th pitcher of the inning and still haven’t gotten an out.
Wow…and this all started with Gardy’s hustle and Jeter finally not GDP’ing. Let’s go, boys.
this is like cc’s 1st inning but with every pitcher on the rangers.
berkman for thames?
hells fuckin yeah hows that pen working now Ronny
*insert Ron Washington cocaine, needs to walk out to mound a lot joke here*
Pffffffffft. And there goes the air getting sucked out of the Ballpark at Arlington.
Wow. Could this be a record for longest time passed to throw three pitches?
FUCK OFF RANGERS ‘FANS.’
This game is headed straight to Yankees Classics.
It’s almost like 90% of the fanbase shouldn’t have given up in the 4th inning?
So, where do I donate my kidney?
I think Accent Shallow is the one with that kind of information.
We will be in touch.
Better follow through, there are many witnesses
Look at that. The booth has gone quiet.
Ron Darling wants to cry.
So at least the roster isn’t at 40 men, he can’t change the pitcher after EVERY basehit.
lol at brining in a new lefty for Thames
haha, smoltz looks pissed
edit: he always looks like that
John Smoltz looks PISSED.
He wants to go to bed, but the Yankees just won’t let him.
new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread! new thread!
I don’t get into the whole body language debate too often, but those boys on the Rangers bench look shocked beyond belief.
…and this pleases me to no end.
Jon Smoltz looked pissed for 30 seconds right there.
holy shit, the last 7 innings was freaking dreadful. C’mon Yanks, get the lead, then hand the ball to MO.
Wow, if they pull this game off, it will be in SPITE of CC. It’s about time the Yankees bailed him out, lol.
I know. The big fucking slacker.
is it berkman time???
smoltz is having flashbacks to 96
It’s too bad this game was over in the first inning, eh?
Big ups to all the believers. Realists, not optimists. And you haters can suck a…(/Censored)
Derek Hollands a really good pitcher, guys. Just saying. What a game
Quick! New thread; “The Yankees will win this game!”
still more work to be done out there.
Rangers fans have to be in disbelief at this point.
A HR will ice it
Shouldn’t Holland just change his name to Darren?
boo a lefty, i was wrong oh well next game haha
Lets break more hearts shall we…
ok guys – my comments tonight were officially stupid – thank you Ron Washington for leaving your best pitchers in the pen and letter us beat up on waiver wire guys.
Why would they bring in Rapada to face Cano over Holland?
He brought in a lefty? Make him pay Mr. Thames
So NOW the umpire gives that inside pitch.
thames….3 run blast?
ok, i’ll take a sac fly.
Please just get the run in.
this, don’t get greedy, although I think Thames is
We don’t need anything big, Marcus, just get those runs in.
Wait wait wait wait wait. Did Washington just bring in a LEFTY to face Thames??
The look on Smoltz face is priceless. Haven’t seen him look like that since his last game as a Red Sock.
That was the funniest line of the night. “Holland threw a pitch and he’s still in there.”
gotta love this team.. i’m almost in tears.. i seriously don’t take this team for granted..
Sheesh, brutally long day at work today. Just got home.
So, did I miss anything?
Oh, just the usual. Down and almost out, but coming back by fighting tooth and nail and being generally awesome.
not to get ahead of myself but I hope we get good Kerry tonight
awesome body language in the texas dugout
in play marcus
PLAY SMALLBALL IF NEEDED
*takes deep breath* No.
Sac flies are fine, bunts are not fine.
Yankees take the lead!!!!!!
this crowd is like a casting session for “dr t and the women”
Marcus Thames: ALCS MVP
POUR IT ON MUTHAFUCKERS
i am so happy right now.
What a team, what a team…
YANKEES TAKE THE LEAD!!!! WHY IS THE BOOTH SO QUIET!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAH
Can i have one more BP move !!
All with no outs to boot.
New York Vampires! Undead baby!
Deep and Thick.
HEY LOOK A LEAD

THEY CALL ME MR. THAMES!!!!!

I am just laughing with every hit the Yankees get.
Bring in a lefty to pitch to Marcus Thames. Is Ron Washington on someth…oh wait.
ouch like it
Left fielder couldn’t pick it up this time. Nice shakin’ the bush, Marcus.
Stat pad guys.
Yankees have now made it worth staying up till 5 AM. WOOOHOOO!!!!
Props to you for sticking with the team.
where are you?
HA even the announcers can’t believe it
someone give an iv to nolan
LoL at that shot of Nolan ryan.
LOL. Nolan Ryan looking like someone just shot his dog.
U know what Ron Darling and Smoltz look more disappointed than Nolan Ryan
Oh my goodness. That was priceless.
Also, Ron Washington is going to get KILLED by the MSM and Texas media for “overmanaging” this inning.
He’s not the villain, the Yankees are I’m sure the three non called strikes will be what the MSM focuses on.
If this sticks, Moseley with the win….who woulda thunk it.
Hey, I thought the game ended and we were doomed?!!?!
God I feel like puking after devouring lots of pizza and beer. BUT I FEEL GOOOD!! CAUSE THE MFYANKEES are KILLING IT!!! The folks in the booth are going to swallow their cyanide pills soon!!!
The President doesn’t look happy, and by that I mean Ryan.
there’s that 5 run inning.
Stand up and eat crow!
So Smoltz, Ryan, and Bush are unhappy. Keep it going.
Holland’s allowed to throw 2 pitches?? WOW.
nolan ryan looked like someomne shot his dog.
Somewhere out there, TJCS has jizzed all over the place…
i texted my friend right before the jeter double that the yanks were failing to do their job of being the bright side in my otherwise ultra frustrating day and were actually making it worse – I TAKE IT BACK!!!!!
The look on smoltz face was fantastic. That made the post season so far!
PS. The gritster is awesome
All the wind goes out of Texas.
“it all started with Brett Gardener” – finally a reasonable remark – it was an awesome hustle play and you could feel it change the mood for NY
Nolan Ryan is going to beat the shit out of everyone, Ventura-style, after the game.
Can they bring him in to pitch, I’m pretty sure he coulda got outta this inning by now.
Come on, Po – finish em!
If the Yankees win this game it is going to destroy Texas’ confidence.
The ump wants to go home. Fuck off.
More runs, you guys. Not to get greedy, but you’re in a prime position here. *clap clap*
Bring on spillover threat part deux.
and Mike, be sure to predict something again… gotta keep the luck rolling
I love that I know something good has happened when I refresh this page and suddenly everything SLOWS down.
are you kidding what a bad call
I like that TBS has this PitchTrax so people can see how incompetent umpires are.
nice, give him another fb, holland
oh so close, called oppo, too
well, you know holland’s staying in there for grandy and gardy
It’s like a fucking rollercoaster drop.
the most beautiful graph ever
Nice Cliff. Get it? Heh, too corny?
I chuckled, I admit.
Lets do what the Rangers could do. Finish this off.
crap. so close
Close, nice try JoPo.
SHitttt, just missed a homer there Georgie
Two feet from being the dagger.
Boooo Posada BOOOOOO hahaha
Man, I was hoping for a total soul-crushing HR.
So close, but that’s Yankee small ball. Advance the runner with a near HR.
Good job Robbie
What the hell is an “out”?
Juice? I want that purple stuff.
Oooo, so close Jorge. He’s having great ABs tonight.
I thought that was going to be out of there.
Sooo… all the fans with the stupid antlers can go screw themselves with it! You heard me!!!!
Nice base running for Cano, sets the Yanks up for another run.
need a tack on here
This Holland kid throws pretty hard. I swear he was once a SP prospect. What happened?
still just 24. give him time
He’s actually still a pretty good prospect. Had a couple of injuries. Wouldn’t be surprised if he makes it into their rotation.
our team lacks fight
manager’s nose is white
deep in the heart of texas!!!
The second line doesn’t quite have the meter you’re looking for.
shoulda spent the extra minute…
C’mon, Curtis, you’ve been awesome.
Guess the yanks are that good, that these announcers can root like that against.
weeeooo, nice take, curtis
LOL, they packed extra lefties for us too!!
The Nolan Ryan Face
Ugh, ball four
Let’s go Gardy!
Nice call ump.
I guess I will take 6 runs in this inning if that is all we get.
Really the 1st bad AB all inning, and even Grandy pushed it to a full count.
That was a great sequence by Holland. Have to tip the cap there.
Gardner will finish what he started (in a good way).
can i be the first to say:
Suck it V. Suck it long, and suck it hard.
One more ounce of grit, please.
that was a nasty pitch…
Good thing I sacrificed that rooster
I watched Paranormal Activity during the first 6 innings, sorry guys and gals..
but a question: it is fake, right?
man that strike 2 call on Jorge has killed this rally fucking umps
Awwww, poor booth. They seem so terribly sad. Sensitive thugs, they all need hugs, while they prey and prey on our downfall, everytime they hit the ground they bounce up like round ball!
Ain’t no love in the heart of Texas
The Yanks to the Rangers, I’m not looking at you dudes, I’m looking past you!
Heh the people at the Rangers Sb Nation blog think TBS is biased and sucking the Yankees dick.
I’m glad they’re all panicking because their team can’t win a damn home game.
come on bgards 1 more big hit
A double would be nice.
“Painted the corner?” NO YOU DUMB FUCK, it was OUTSIDE!!!
gardy really needs to bat leadoff with all the pitches he sees
Wood or Mo for six outs?
Gotta go to Wood rite.
Almost. Keep it where it is, bullpen.
guess we’ll have to settle for 5 runs.
who do you bring in Wood or Robertson?
All right, boys. Three outs and we go to Mo time.
Six more outs…
Well that was a fun inning rite guys.
do not let them off the deck
That shattered-bat line single by Marcus was my favorite.
oh, after the gritty slide into first, of course.
his fist pump was so awesome, plus he looked fucking badass running with the shards exploding in front of him
Got the lead. That’s all that matters. Wood to Mo. If Wood’s mechanics are off gotta have a quick hook.
UNLEASH THE ROBERTSON
Use Mo for 4 if necessary
WHAT THE HELL I THOUGHT THE YANKEES LOST IN THE 7TH INNING SO I TURNED THE GAME OFF AND I FOUND OUT THEYRE WINNING??!?!?!?! THATS THE LAST TIME I LISTEN TO RIVER AVE BLUES COMMENTERS EVER AGAIN FUCK
Bawls was an underrated energy drink.
It’s still around It was just on hiatus for a while as they tried to find a distributor or something, but it’s back in circulation again for the most part.
they already lost….what are you talking about?
a good rule is if you say the yankees are going to lose, there is no point for you to be on a yankee forum/blog, so leave,,, and don’t come back, once the yanks get back
who is coming in? d-rob? wood?
FYI,everytime I have seen you write this. it happens.
Just an observation.
ok bullpen, do yo thang
So is it KRob or Wood for the 8th?
6 more outs, let’s do this. And tack on more runs next inning.
We are going to ride Wood into the ground. I honestly think he’s been the best Bridge to Mo since Joba in 2007.
What if our bullpen is rusty from the days off?
Or am I just being irrational?
With these umpires fears are reasonable.
considering cc. not irrational
The Rangers message board must be a mess now.
No walks please… tight zone..
That crow is damn tasty.
I will never make a prediction ever again ever.
Go ahead run is up, might be eating more crow now.
Do you like ANYTHING about this team
come on Kerry strikes
get robertson up already
Get him out now
Seriously Wood cut the fuckin crap/
Well, get up Mariano…
Yeah, that was a bad start.
Just need 2 outs.
man thats just horrible.
Get Robertson up now.
Well that was ideal.
How short is the leash, Joe?
Okay, we need the good Wood here, not the bad Wood.
come on god damnit don’t swing the door back open
Goddamn, no one has a clue what Gerry Davis is going to call for those outside corner pitches.
Wood should not be pitching here. He has no control.
Not the best start but Wood is a strikeout pitcher.
Get it together, Wood.
ik, it’s like he hasn’t been watching the game
Can’t watch…*covers eyes*
Holy shit that walk was brutal.
THROW A STRIKE!!!!
Girardi better have a short leash with Wood tonight.
Get Robertson and Mo warming.
has no idea where the ball is going
Get Wood out of this game.
He is flying open. Get him out.
fuck this guy come on man strikes please
Wow. What a huge break. Wow.
KERRY WOOD WOW
How do you get picked off by a RHP in that situation?
What an amateur.
WTF was Kinsler thinking….good for us though.
That’s one way to erase the runner.
thank you very much.
Suck it Ian.
Ahh, yes, as I expected, the overly agressive Rangers will hurt themselves.
PICKED HIM OFF
Love it! 5 outs to go.
Wow what is it about the Yankee opponents and just completely crapping the bed?
fuck yea, Wood. Sea Aggresivo, Guardabosques!!
WAHAHHAHAHAHAHA I fell out of my chair on the pick off, I think I might have injured something but the pure joy of that pick off.
….lost for words, but thanks.
So when the Rangers get the outside call, they “Paint the corner” but when the Yanks get an outside call, “Good job by Posada framing the outside pitch.” I LIVE IN ATLANTA AND HATE TBS!!!
Is Wood injured?
oh my.. oh my.. Kinsler.. ouch
great for us!
Wow thank you Ian.
Rangers cashed all their base-running good luck checks against the Rays.
Alright, Ker-bear. Just two more outs.
Its like the last scene in “Rookie of the Year”.
One out is all you need.
I was just going to write that I’d been relaxed for several innings but Wood was tying my stomach in knots…
and then Kinsler bailed me out
that’s one pair of antlers to hang on the wall
Gerry Davis has been generous this inning.
Girardi needs to get Wood out of this game. His mechanics are not right.
mmm, J borbon; I’d let him pitch
Come on Kerry.
Not loving Wood’s outing so far.
Not a single pitch in the “blue”
Mo for 4?
this is the #8 hitter, I trust Kerry
Good cutter there…
Bring in Mo?
Ian Kinsler: True Yankee?
Yes. More than A-Rod ever will or can be.
Just one more out Wood.
Guys, Mo was 0-2 against the Rangers this season. He was 0-2 against Boston in 2004. This obviously means that Mo can’t do shit against the Rangers and we’re doomed.
obvi, everything is the same. It’s eerie
D-Rob for an out? Kerry’s kind of shaky.
Here comes Dave “Island”
Dave Island with the intel
mmmm, mighty good, that wood. Is it Norwegian?
YESMo would have given us that shot hours ago.
Wood’s outing so far, a walk on four pitches, a hard hit ball right at the first baseman and a great pickoff. Strike this fool out Wood!!
finally a cb to slow him down
It’s nice that Washington also burned the fastest legs on his bench here.
Wow all of a sudden, Gerry Davis has expanded his strikezone.
Now the ump is giving the Yanks strikes on the outside. I will take, but rather have the umps be consistent and right.
A-Rod def deserves a lot of credit for what he did, but I think Dustin Moseley could def be considered one of the MVP’s for the game.
Moseley gets the win — more post-season cred than he probably ever dreamed of
Wood walked him on purpose just so he could show off his pickoff move.
they were toying with them the whole time.
Kerry Wood lets go…
Kerry’s got WOOD!
Un-fucking-believeable. What a game. What a team.
I’m gonna go buy a lotto ticket after this.
Pad that lead boys, top of the order! I love 5 spots, they make me smile!
Great job by the bullpen.
Seriously. Moseley was phenomenal. I know we give him a lot of crap, but honestly, he kept the game where it was and deserves some serious props.
Alright offense, pour it on and give Mo a comfy lead.
Mo already has one.
True, but I’d rather the Rangers have no confidence.
Texas now has to score on The One.
if i ever have another son, i am naming him ian.
cantu’s 0-for-5 with 5 Ks vs. mo…who they have on the bench to ph?
that’s right. thanks
Moreland I would guess. I don’t get why he didn’t just have Benji hit there though.
I can’t complain about the strike zone tonight anymore. Kerry got the three biggest gift calls of the entire ballgame.
So where’s JM? I thought the Yankees were getting shut down tonight.
Gerry Davis and Ian Kinsler really bailed Wood out that inning. His front shoulder was flying open like against Minnesota in the 3rd game.
The good news going forward though is that he was able to self correct on the mound after Eiland came out to talk to him for that last at bat.
The great news is no harm no foul.
Long time off, plus that was a pretty tight strike zone. He didn’t seem to be that bad.
Yeah I didn’t think he was awful. Regular season game you don’t even consider taking Wood out.
The margin for error is just so much smaller in these games that being off even a little mechanically is very risky.
Could the booth be a little less enthusiastic ? They’re gonna wake my wife
Did you see what smoltz looked like when they went into the booth? People getting diagnosed with terminal diseases look happier.
Feliz coming in to give us a few insurance runs?
What. A. Game. This is why we watch, and why we don’t give up.
+29 (This title is locked down, I’m already looking towards next season)
missing those “yankees sucks” chants from ranger fans.
suddenly disappeared. What happened?
Sweeney Murti just tweeted that the Rangers havent gotten a hit since Young’s 2-run double in the 4th.
Moseley = MVP of the game.
Between innings , Id like to show my appreciation for that smokin hot blonde behind home plate
God bless HD
If Holland is pitching tonight, maybe they are committed to starting Hunter in Game 4. I’m alright with that decision.
Bengie Molina looks like an Autobot in that getup.
el capitan, gat damn
Derek Jeter, you are a good baseball player.
Someone wants to get paid….way to go Jetes.
/I only looked at the first three ABs’d
Holy cow, that ball was CRUSHED. EL CAPITAN!
Captain my captain!
Will someone please remind Jeter he’s finished?
jeter is so washed up. can’t even get the ball over the centerfield wall.
Damn, Captain. Nice wood.
But guys, I thought Jeter was totally finished and the Yankees were doomed?
I hear a let’s go Yankees chat.
Hamilton either misjudged that, or was way too shallow.
DEREK FUCKING JETER
Heeeey look whose BACK!!!
Fuck, there he goes again, sucking Cash in to a 4-yr deal.
Don’t disrespect Jeter holmes.
boy, they should demote him to corporal. All his fancy deakin’.
Why? WHY? WHYYYYY?
Fuck you Girardi.
Fuck you Captain Jack.
Hey everyone, Poster thinks that having Swisher bunt is a good idea.
Guys, read this comment and tell me if it follows with what I said.
I report, you decide
You said something completely random, that had nothing to do with what I said.
You’d fit well with the mainstream media.
GOD DAMMIT, DO NOT BUNT
Can we take off the bunt please?
Not sure if Swisher knows how to bunt.
Damn, just swing, Swish.
the Rangers bullpen would welcome us giving them outs in the meat of our order…
He’s already in scoring position, don’t fucking bunt!
And that is why I agreed so hard with the not bunting. Useless.
the Rangers bullpen would welcome us handing them outs IN THE MEAT OF OUR ORDER after we just put up a 6 spot
…Why does Kerry Wood look attractive to me with that haircut.
Jeez, young lady, we have to introduce you to someone!
I’m actually “seeing” someone, and I still find Kerry hot right now. It has the be the haircut ’cause he wasn’t attractive to me a few days ago.
Maybe…I haven’t been drinking though.
Swisher just wants to get castrated with all these bunt attempts.
WHY BUNT??? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
Amateur move on that bunt. Oy.
Way to go Joe. give em a free out
So ridiculous…what a wasted at bat.
stop trying to bunt, we suck at it
Goddamnit Swisher. You’re a good hitter. Stop being a fucking idiot.
Just awful. Swisher should never bunt. Ever.
that’s why you don’t bunt a power hitter.
wtf… really? the middle of the order and you dont trust them to get a base hit?
This is why you don’t bunt. Like ever.
WTF Swisher!!!! Swing the Fuckin Bat god dammit…
ANd that’s why that’s a moronic play. Just stupid, stupid, stupid.
They deserve that. So stupid
Wow, it’s almost like he shouldn’t have tried to fucking bunt.
seriously. If you want a bunt at this point in the game, just pinch hit with someone who can bunt!
This is the ALCS guys. A.
Who. The FUCK. Told Swisher to bunt. And don’t give me crap about him doing it on his own. Someone told him.
I HATE THAT. It’s almost Ron Washington-esque.
I defended the bunts in Minnesota, but that’s terrible.
Why, why, why?
Swish surprises me. He usually does everything right.
you know what you fucking deserve that you ass
Bad execution by Swisher
I agree with the bunt call
not seriously, Greg. I agree with you. An insurance run there was plenty for Mo. Highest probability (not considering Swish’s talent for bunting, though).
the Yankees offense, especially in the meat of the order, should never play for 1 run innings.. NEVER..
Man. It’s like bunting isn’t a good idea with this team or something.
Wonder when Girardi will figure it out.
Swisher needs to be castrated.
What is more wrong – the strike zone or the PitchTrax on TBS?
which is more criminal
Kinsler being picked off
the pick off
Easily the pickoff.
Kinsler by far. Reduced their chances of winning by around 15%, Swish reduced the Yanks’ chances by around 4%. Still frustrating, though.
JESUS CHRIST, when will he learn? It took 6 players to get one out last inning and they GAVE them an out with nothing outta it. WE LET EM OFF THE HOOK!!
We are NOT a small ball team
We ARE Deep and Thick
One thing that’s more depressing than seeing the Yanks are going to bunt is the failed bunt. 33% of the offense gone in a pointless AB.
blowhorns still get you kicked out, right?
October 15, 2010 at 10:59 pm
Here we come just like I said! We’re one hit away from winning this ballgame.”
Haha. Let’s see:
October 15, 2010 at 8:21 pm
And Cliff Lee is looming in game 3. I don’t like our chances anymore.”
October 15, 2010 at 8:33 pm
One hit here and the ballgame is over.”
October 15, 2010 at 9:09 pm
If that run scores from 3rd this game might be over.”
October 15, 2010 at 9:37 pm
Ballgame. Way to go CC, our supposed true ace. The whole series rests on Phil tomorrow.”
LOL haha someone got called out on his/her comments!
I have a hard time believing that Joe called Swisher to bunt there…
If he didn’t, he would not have bunted past the first pitch…
he did that against the Twins too
i dbt JOe G called that
For one pitch, and if you remember Thomson had a chat with him after that pitch and his bunt went away.
I agree, good call bad execution. swisher looked scurred.
That’s because he SUCKS AT BUNTING. It’d be like asking Brett Gardner to play shortstop and then getting mad when he doesn’t know where to be on a pickoff play.
It’s the ninth. If you want a bunt, fucking put in Golson and have him do it!.
Look at those Rangers fans waving the white towels! They know Mo is coming, so they’re just going to give up.
Just got under that one. Good thing Swisher tried to bunt though,
WOW, I hate TBS
only pitchers should bunt
So, even if Swisher had got the bunt down, he wouldn’t have scored on Teix’s short fly.
Whereas Swish might have driven him in himself.
Jeter would have scored.
not in the real world
Fallacy of the pre-determined outcome, but I will agree that the bunt was stupid.
Damn it Swish.
Thanks for the extra out, Swish.
Why is everyone angry at the bunt.
That would have been a run on the flyball
Cruz has a cannon and that was like 50 feet behind second base, you’re nuts. What if Swisher hit a 2 run bomb? He DID have 29 of them on the season, you know.
Because Swisher’s a very good hitter, and it doesn’t make sense to take the bat out of his hands.
If he didn’t bunt there’s a chance he could’ve scored Jeter on a hit or even a homerun. We don’t know what would have happened if he swung.
A) No, I don’t think it would have been a run, as it wasn’t very deep. B) People are angry at the bunt because of exactly what happened. Swisher can’t bunt AND it’s a dumb idea to give up outs, especially with 3-4 due up.
Because you play the team you have.
He put Golson in for defense anyway, if you REALLY want a bunt, fucking pinch hit and have him do it!
Ugly AB’s by Swisher and A-Rod.
No reason for a .300 25 hr batter to bunt, ever.
Did he say MO looks scared? BLASPHEMY!!!
Really wanted that 7th run. Mo in Excelsis and all, but my stomach could use a break.
failed bunt cost them that inning of getting a run.
Yeah, the guy with 29 home runs should totally bunt all the time. It was a stupid, stupid play.
And one that has failed on at least three other high profile occasions with Swisher.
honestly not true, swisher could have gotten an out. Its the luck of baseball
It’s an easy call: You let Swisher do what he does best. And that isn’t bunting.
For all the beauty of the 8th, horrible AB’s by 2, 3, 4…. HAVE to get that run in.
vs mo: moreland 0-for-1 with K, andrus 1-for-2 with 3B, young 7-for-22 (.682 OPS)
Vlad is the one who seems to put good ABs on Mo.
Just three Mo outs to go…
Girardi gets my vote as baseball`s worst manager after that bunt call unfuckingbelievable
Really? Just shush
mo, mo, mo
I would very much like this game not to get to Josh Hamilton.
Vamos, Mariano! ayayhayaya
That sucked but Mariano Rivera is on the mound with a 1 run lead.
All is well.
STRIKE ruled a ball
Stupid little roller. Your 3″ grass is supposed to stop that.
DP right here Mo. Do this.
Wasn’t even hit that hard, just found a hole.
Come on Mo, show these hick mothafuckers who’s God.
Alright, no panic yet but let’s pull the DP.
Don’t do this to me Mo…
Hard hit double play!!!!!!!
DP, Mo. I don’t want to cry on your behalf.
Thought that was an out off the bat. Shift.
Ugh, too much smallball for my tastes.
LOL at A-Rod, distracting Andrus.
now that’s a bunt
Fuck I was hoping that would roll foul but whateva’s…
nice, if awkward throw, Tex
Nice play by Tex and Cano.
Giambi never would have made that play. Thank god for MT
Only 2 outs to go! C’mon Mo!
come on mo!!! here we go…
We are two outs and three wins away from going back to the World Series. EXCITING
This is insane. I get home from a four hour drive to the Yankees being down 5-0 in the 7th and an hour later, they take a one run lead. Ridiculous.
give him the change
Capt Young and the time of Truth.
Wow nervous time…
My heart is pounding
finish it like the Chalupa!
Throw to second!!
Strike 3, dammit.
Strike plz Gerry Davis
and that was strike 3
Where the FLIP did that miss?
Lets give some credit to that kid screaming “Lets go Yankees” loud enough for the broadcast to pick it up.
So…have post season umps ever had this shitty a zone? Or am I overreacting?
Come on Mo. Come on.
terrrible just terrible fucking umps
strike 3! wtf
too much of the plate there
FUCK YEAH! one more
1 more to go…
man…this is getting nerve racking.
but oh so pleasurable…..
captain jack will get you high tonight…..
ONE MORE OUT
wait, I didn’t know that you could recover from a bad call and still strike the guy out.
ho, ho , ho. Gotta go to MO!
hamilton 1-for-4 vs. mo
I fucking love you Mo.
ok Mo, running in scoring postion, AL MVP up. Go to it
That was the third time he had Young struck out. This time Mo took it into his own hands.
HAHAHA EPIC COMEBACK!
YES YES YES !!!
HAMILTON FOR MVP!!!!!!!
Great win or Greatest WIN®?
MO how i love thee
FOUR DOWN, SEVEN TO GO
BOOM, that just happened.
Mo giveth’, Mo taketh’ away.
what. a. fucking. game.
YESSSSSSS! YANKEES WIN!!! YAAAAAAAAANKKESS WIN!!!!
YANKEEES WIN, THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!!!!!!!
YANKEES WIN!!! YAYYYYY!!
Insert claw in ass. What a team.
Tooting the horn
my, oh, my. Turned into a pretty nice ol’ ballgame.
Best game I’ve seen in a while. What a nail biter.
Ain’t no thang.
Absolutely amazing game!!!
Demoralizing for the Rangers. Great win. Big ups to the Yankees and for the people who didn’t give up
The spillover thread works again!!!!!!!
what a postseason baseball game..
Ross, I was wrong you were right…I’m going drinking tonight so obviously I’m too lazy to repost my comments in the recap thread. However, I do know the name of that smoking blonde behind homeplate and here she is:
Is that good or do you want more?
High five + double fist pumps to all the RABbis that didn’t give up.
A big fuck you + I told ya so to all the fucking ledge jumpers/trolls.
You Rangers can take your antlers and fuck yourself with it! One word for the Rangers: “DEFLATED”.
Hey Josh Hamilton,
How’s that August four (sic… it was a 3) game sweep feel now?
Ya fuckin’ Jerkoff.
EAT CROW DOOMSAYERS!
eatin snacks drinking booze
you mean your juice box?
My juice box is Mrs. Handtius…she pees when I fuck her.
I like to consider myself the Rex Ryan of RAB, not a gregarious likeable guy, but just an obtuse asshole
START SPREADING DA NEWS…..
how bad-ass is this team?
i mean REALLY
And this is why, when we were down 5-0 I said, “It’s five fucking runs.” Amazing win. I’m soooo happy.
Every member of the Texas organization has on a serious hurt face right now
So I RECALL someone saying they would give their kidney or left testicle if the Yanks won…..
What a fucking win.
Claw that suck my fucking antler
I can honestly say I thought the game was over after they scored 5.
It’s not over till it’s over. Sorry everyone.
The key to the win was pulling CC though. If Joe leaves CC in for the 5th and he gives up 2 more runs…
Dude. That was World Series Champ baseball right there.
The curse of George W Bush.
This team has no heart unlike the 2009 team
I hope in the next game all these ledge jumpers will back up and realize this team can win when down and do.
huge win. just takes the steam out of texas….their starter was huge, CC crumbled and they still stole that game! no bullpen can hold this team down
LOL they (Rangers) have to get that taste out of their mouths…
That is hard to do when the Yankees are SO fucking DEEP and THICK!!!
Where’s Captain Jack(off)?
About to go celebrating.
You’re not allowed.
I can’t be tamed.
Take your ledge jumping ass over to Lohud to celebrate. No faith having douche-nozzle.
I’m celebrating at a bar…with people.
Well, at least you didn’t run away.
I admit when I’m wrong.
great shot of bush and ryan sucking on lemons as the telecast ended!
I said it before and I’ll say it again — never count this team out.
Has to go to the top of the list for Yankee wins this year because of the importance of the game (ALDS) and the come back.
We all want easy wins, but these are much better. Great game.
Have to quote the great Lawrence Peter Berra on this one: “It ain’t over till it’s over.”
Ross, I am expecting a post from you later on. Make it epic.
Josh was impatient….nerves come out. If the Yankees can drop the hammer tomorrow and put up some crooked numbers, this series is OVUH!
Excellent, superb, stupendous, etc…
A little worried about CC though.
he was on a bad day bad control.
Wouldn’t worry. He definately pitches better when he’s on schedule, and he will be in his next start at the Stadium. He’s not tossing up two bads in a row. He’s fine.
Ross, I was wrong you were right…I’m going drinking tonight so obviously I’m too lazy to repost my comments in the recap thread. However, I do know the name of that smoking blonde behind homeplate and here she is:
what a win i love the yankees. jeter resigned
Surprised more people aren’t taking shots at me…well off to take shots. Awesome win, Jesus Christ this was fucking nuts. Almost as crazy as G2 of the 2009 ALCS. CC don’t you dare fucking do this ever again.
