Hey, fellas, the opposing starter isn’t supposed to settle down after taking a line drive to the wrist on his pitching arm.

  • Matt

    He would probably already be out of this game if not for the umpire blowing that call at first.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Clay_Bellinger Clay Bellinger

      We’ll never know how far that inning would have gone. Infuriating.

  • Eddard

    4 hits and 3 walks in just four innings for Fister and they have 0 runs. And I don’t want to hear this garbage about crooked umps or lucky defense. Crush bad pitching, hustle to first and that doesn’t happen. Fister is throwing 90 mph right down the middle on 2-0 and 3-1 and they’re doing nothing.

    • Matt

      Cano was safe. He busted it down the line. What more can you do?

      They never had the chance to do damage because they had two 2-run singles taken away from them and Fister was bailed out of the inning on the missed call at first.

      You can’t expect a good pitcher to give up baserunner after baserunner all night. They did what they had to do, and ran into some terrible luck, again.

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    Spillover threads are fun.

    Yea, Ernie, that second play Peralta made was “a fielding gem.” Fucking tool.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    i love morgan freedman.

    • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

      +1

    • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

      Freedman? Hmmmm……

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        yeah, sorry I don’t spell famous people’s names correctly that often…Freeman, better? I just don’t care.

        • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

          What I was implying is something that’s not very PC. He’s an African-American and you misspelled it “Freedman,” so there’s that weird connotation.

    • Nice Scheister

      He’s alive?

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        yeah.

  • Chilango

    Fister sucks tonight but not as bad as our offense. He’s way off the plate and then just lays it in there and they still can’t do anything with it. If it weren’t for the Ibañez miracle, we probaly wouldn’t even be here. Ball-less Joe needs to bench ARod, Swisher and Granderson before it’s too late.

    • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

      Pretty sure I would have even less confidence in the three players that would replace those guys.

      • Chilango

        What? Look up Swisher’s career post season numbers, AROID just flat out sucks now, and Granderson is 3 for what 30 so far. Anyone else Joe puts in would be better. Or at least deserves a shot.

        • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

          And those players would be…? I stand by my statement. Those three players have much more talent than anyone who would replace them.

        • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

          You could make an argument for Chavez over ARod I guess, but the other options are Nix against a RHP, or Gardner who has had like 4 ABs since April.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Clay_Bellinger Clay Bellinger

      Lol.. And put who in?

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      who you playing in all them spots? glad you’re not managing this team. you probably wanted to keep Cody Ransom at third and bench Arod when he started that season on the DL.

    • DC

      Get a grip.

  • Knoxvillain

    Here come the runs.

  • BigBlueAL

    On a side note thanks to Pat D I will be watching some He-Man cartoons after the game tonight. And yes I actually own the entire He-Man DVD collection lol

    • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

      So do I, and I don’t think I’ve ever actually put any of them on.

      Sadly, that’s the way my DVD buying history has gone. I buy stuff and never watch them.

      • BigBlueAL

        Im the same way yet when a movie I own on DVD is on TV I always watch it lol.

        • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

          My mother does that. I do with only a select few, like Inception or Pulp Fiction.

          • BigBlueAL

            I was excited Ghostbusters was on Encore the other night then remembered I have it on DVD lol

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    Owned by Peralta? Yikes, Andy.

  • Effthisnoise

    Peralta fielding gems? Really TBS?

    • TinoBambino24

      Turbulent. Biased. Shitty.

      TBS

      • Anthony

        haha

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        Isn’t it easier to just say Total Bull Shite?

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Yankees have, what, 16 runs in, what, 54 innings this postseason?

    One baserunner since Fister got drilled on the wrist. You can’t make this stuff up.

  • dkidd

    no matter what happens in this game or this series, how awesome is it we get to watch andy in the post-season one more time (hopefully not the last)?

    • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

      My inner-child is giddy as hell. It’s amazing.

    • oldmanalex currently benchwarming

      i plan to watch him in the world series.

    • BigBlueAL

      Really hope he pitches next season.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      i watched him as a teenager and as a 30 yr old…pretty cool.

  • Matt

    This already feels like another one of those games that the Yankees have had stolen from them by umpiring, just like Game 2 in Baltimore. It’s sickening. Unless the Yankees score 4 or 5 runs and take control of this, it’s hard to shake that feeling.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle AKA True Yankee(TM)

      Right now the score is Detroit:0 New York:0 Umpires:4

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    “Willie Mayes?” “WILLIE MAYES???”

    “WILLIE MOTHERFUCKING MAYES?!?!?!?!?!?”

    TBS should be banned from broadcasting baseball for all time after that.

    • dkidd

      unbelievable

      stick to basketball

  • AJ

    Hey TBS, who is Willie “Mayes”

    • Cy Pettitte

      ask Carl Ripken Jr.

  • oldmanalex currently benchwarming

    good thing our offensive shortcomings, are contagious to the away team.

  • Tom Q

    If that call was our make-up gift, it wasn’t enough.

  • Effthisnoise

    TBS harped on the Mclouth foul the entire game last night when even replay showed it was clearly foul, but te whole broadcast it was a “controversal” call. Yet they have not mentioned the replay proven blown call since

    • Nice Scheister

      They are collective assholes.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    I missed the Willie Mays thing. What happened?

  • RetroRob

    Robbie knocked the suck out of Fister’s arm. Unintended consequence.

  • Mick taylor

    Why is choke king swisher playing. If girardi is this stupidto have the worst hitter in the history of playoff baseball history in the lineup believing he will turn it around he deserves to lose. Swisher will not get a meaningful hit this series because he cannot hit under pressure as in the 2009 playoffs and last year. C dick would have made sense

    • VT Yankee Fan (I named my son after Andy)

      Haven’t we heard enough of this? Move on to something else.

      • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

        Just start quoting Rolling Stones songs that he played on. I’m convinced it will eventually make him go away.

      • Chilango

        His post season numbers are .162/.281/.296 in 168 PA. We’ll have heard enough of this when Joe takes him out.

    • DC

      I bet your music playlist is just the same song over and over.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Clay_Bellinger Clay Bellinger

    Ernie is brutal.

  • Bret “The Hitman” Gardner

    I would be okay with Ernie Johnson doing PBP if Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith did the color…TBS sucks.

    • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

      I still wouldn’t be OK with it. Studio hosts generally aren’t good at calling games, which is why they don’t call games.

      • Bret “The Hitman” Gardner

        I’m not saying it would be good baseball announcing, but so long as it’s going to be bad baseball announcing I would much rather hear Charles say stupid shit and Kenny argue with him than listen to this Smoltz douchebag.

  • BigBlueAL

    This Yankee offense is reaching 2001 World Series status.

    • SammySosasBleachingCream

      I think they’re already there. Grandy is the new David Justice.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      I was at Game 5, coolest thing I’ve ever seen.

  • wow

    the Yankees are intent on making Fister go 8.

  • Knoxvillain

    The offense will lose this game. Mediocre Fister is shitting all over us right now.

  • Hummingbird S.

    now they are making outs without working the count… this has to be one of the worst offenses the Yankees have ever fielded.

    • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

      They scored 804 runs. Only in 1995, 2001 and 2008 did they score the same or fewer since this run began.

      Keep in mind, of course, that offense was much higher across the board most of those years.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle AKA True Yankee(TM)

    “maybe a tiny bit safe” are you fucking serious?

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    they’re still calling it a close call….

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    “Maybe a tiny bit safe,” Smoltz?

    Fuck you, fuck you and fuck you.

  • babnik

    just got in…what did I miss (or not miss)?

  • Matt

    Smoltz is a joke. “Maybe safe.” He is doing anything in his power to pretend that never happened

  • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

    Smoltz – “might have looked save” to “OK, maybe a tiny bit safe, tough call”
    What an ass.

  • Nice Scheister

    “Maybe a tiny bit safe.” -TBS, go fuck yourself!

    • Bo Knows

      How can you be a “tiny bit safe?” unless the mlb is going to allow partial runs due to missed calls, you just can’t be

      • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

        Haha, I know, right? “oh it was bang-bang, so you get half a run!!?”

        No, Smoltz, you little shit. You are safe, or you are you. There is no “maybe” or “little bit”. When you’re dealing with replay, it is black and fucking white.

        • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

          *out

  • Hummingbird S.

    I wonder if Cano can get under .050.. excellent numbers

  • Matt

    The Yankees should be winning at least 1-0 right now. With the way Pettitte is pitching right now, that might have been enough. What a joke.

  • TinoBambino24

    Now I know what Mariner fans go through!

  • Eddard

    Pathetic that they let Fister get in his rhythm. Now one mistake by Andy and it’s over. He’s pitching his heart out, too. They did the same thing to Phil in Game 4.

    • Matt

      The Yankees would be winning if the umpire didn’t completely blow the call on Cano.

    • DC

      For the love of God, go ahead and jump, Eddard.

  • Bret “The Hitman” Gardner

    In the 1st/2nd inning I thought it looked like the offense was actually going to break that habit of failing to get to a pitcher when he is shaky early on and then disappearing completely in innings 3-8. I have no idea why I thought that would happen. They have been piss useless ever since A-Rod’s rally-killing GIDP. They haven’t even done anything to work the pitch count and get to the pen since that GIDP, which sucked not just for stifling a potential rally but also for making it a short inning pitch-wise.

  • Effthisnoise

    Wow, this is actually happening. Another mediocre this time hobbled pitcher is making te yanks look silly. All the sudden peralta and fielder are defrensive juggernauts

    • Robinson Tilapia (I Believe in Alex Rodriguez)

      That’s quite underrating Doug Fister. I’m frustrated too, but he’s better than a mediocre pitcher.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Fister channeling the great Joe Saunders.

  • BigBlueAL

    Actually this offense is even worse than what we saw in the 2001 World Series since at least that team had to face Schilling and Randy Johnson 5 out of 7 games. Dunno WTF is the excuse for this years offense’s horrible display so far.

    • Knoxvillain

      They’ve been like this all season. It shouldn’t surprise anyone. They were never going to be an offense threat in the playoffs and everyone knew that.

      • BigBlueAL

        They scored the 2nd most runs in baseball this season. If they were like this all season they wouldnt be playing right now.

      • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

        2nd most runs in the AL and “They were never going to be an offense threat in the playoffs and everyone knew that?”

        • Knoxvillain

          Everyone with a brain. They were the worst-good offensive team in baseball. They aren’t going to hit home runs. They’ve proven that. The offense is bad. That’s it. Believe what you want. After the Tigers win the series 4-1, you will see.

      If they had it would have been just a double, no one was able to touch it…first time in history, I’d actually want a fan to interfere.

  • Joe F

    Well I forgot to add no hits in general. Fuck.

  • dkidd

    come on, andy!

  • Hummingbird S.

    so predictable.. why not walk him?? they have no hitters after Prince.

  • Matt

    Fuck this game. The first base umpire may have single handedly won Detroit this game. I doubt Fister makes it out of that 2nd inning if not for that call.

  • Eddard

    And that’s why you score when you have 7 men on base in the first 4 innings. Andy made his mistake, Detroit took advantage and that might be it.

  • wow

    that run shouldn’t matter. screw you umpires. screw you bud selig. that could be the difference.

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    I see Fielder’s just like Cano and pimps every time he makes contact.

      see you tomorrow!

  • Effthisnoise

    Swisher no bat and now lays up on s fly ball

      You’re a bigger moron than I thought you were.

  • oldmanalex

    swisher D is a tad bit questionable. should of put more effort on that last play, regardless of how fast/slow cabrera is running.

  • Anthony

    Its not enough Pettite gets screwed over by the offense and bad luck, now the defense too…

  • stuart a

    offense on fire par the course.

    let’s sign cano to a 8 year extension, he is too valuable to let go. so clutch, great with the bases loaded about 208 on the season.

    this offense is even worse they I expected. they are even more incompetent then I could have imagined…

    swisher is a total waste. the first big hit he gets will be his first in the postseason…

    the announcers suck. btw cano was safe on that play. they spent a lot of time on that play, showing all of 1 repaly..if it happened to the tigers there might be afederal investigation…

  • Eddard

    You can get away with it when you’re facing a young club like the Os who will press. But Detroit has been there done that and you can’t get away with leaving 7 men on base in just 4 innings. Crooked umps and lucky defense aside, you have to put runs on the board. This game is over now that they’ve let Fister get in his rhythm.

  • Hummingbird S.

    Pettitte joining the choke party.

    • Pasqua

      On what planet is 2 runs in 6 innings a “choke job”? As has been the case all week, this is on the offense.

    Didn’t take advantage of their opportunities? The Yankees got completely screwed out of 1 and possibly many more runs by the first base umpire. What more can you fucking do when the umpires steal rallies right out of your hands?

  • Chilango

    2 runs down and they’re facing Cy Fister. Can’t wait to see Verlander…twice.

  • RetroRob

    Hopefully the Yankees can sign this Willie Mayes guy. Need help.

  • Widget

    just give up the grand slam already so I can turn this off. Thanks for continuing to suck Swisher and Yankees offense.

  • John

    The MLB is pulling a major conspiracy against the Yankees. They know Jim Leyland could drop dead at any second so they want to give him one more shot at another ring.

    • Knoxvillain

      So could Girardi. He is very close to suicide.

  • Jeffery maier is smiling

    The reason i would have carried Dickerson
    Swisher has to be pulled in some of these games.

  • dkidd

    BIG out

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle AKA True Yankee(TM)

    Two Runs, let’s go boys!!

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Pettitte has allowed 2 ER in 6 innings.

    That’s only good enough for a 2-0 deficit with this offense, these days.

  • Pasqua

    I feel like I’ve been watching the same game over and over for the past week. So, so frustrating.

    • toad

      +1

  • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

    2 runs against Detroit’s bullpen is by no means insurmountable.

    • stuart a

      who is hitting? arod almost got a single in the firstwhiptydoo.

      he is on fire along with the other stooges.

      the offense during the regular season is still here against better pitchers, colder temp.(ball does not go as far).

      this offense is pathetic…………..

      • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

        Stop responding to my comments and I’ll throw you a parade.

        • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

          I forbid him to respond to my posts yesterday. It’s worked so far.

  • BigBlueAL

    Couldve been worse, trailing 2-0 still winnable.

  • Pete

    If we were hitting, I’d be really psyched right now.

  • Alex Rodriguez

    Guys! Hey I’m back, don’t worry, Im gonna hit two home runs this game! Be patient.

    • SammySosasBleachingCream

      Nah, just keep trying to pull that sinker. Shortstop is right there waiting for you.

  • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

    Just shed my Ride hoodie in favor of my Cano jersey. Don’t worry guys.

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    Let me ask a very unfair question of everyone: Do you make mental notes of other commenters who annoy you?

    • Bob Ryan

      Bob Ryan is a twat.

      • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

        Good to know.

  • Matt

    Rob Drake. 1B Umpire. Remember that name if the Yankees lose by a run or Fister is able to work deep into this game.

  • Eddard

    Now some of you might be saying, well 2 runs is nothing with this team and this ballpark. 3-2, 3-2, 2-1, 3-1. Those were the scores the past 4 ballgames and two of those games went into extras. These teams can’t score and they won’t now that Fister is in his rhythm.

  • Joe F

    Lets get into their pen this inning. That’s when we’ll do our damage.

    Our ground balls with RISP need to find holes. Unless we’re just going to have to hit dingers and line drives. Which is something our offense doesn’t want to do at the moment.

  • dkidd

    12 outs to go and detroit’s bullpen is hittable

    good at-bats!

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Tex-speed.

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Well, take that as a break, and score some runs.

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    Oh, please make that hurt.

  • Pasqua

    Okay, that’s a break. BUILD ON IT!

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Now DP for A-Rod. LET’S GO!

  • toad

    Let’s go here. Time to break out.

  • Big “Nostradanus” Member

    time to work my magic again….

    texeira gets a useless walk….

  • Cy Pettitte

    finally some breaks for us.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    lolololololol

  • Anthony

    The luck is evening out!!!! Bout freaking time!

  • jjyank (The Stare Is Dandy)

    Holy shit. Two breaks in a row our way. Make this count.

  • Jeffery maier is smiling

    Baltimore chop lol

  • Matt

    Not only one, but TWO breaks for the Yankees? Is hell frozen over?

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Alright, here we go. I’ll be a dumb sap who believes that there can be some runs scored this inning.

  • BigBlueAL

    Finally a couple of breaks for the Yankee offense.

  • oldmanalex

    aright alex, its showtime.

  • Pete

    Now we’re talking.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle AKA True Yankee(TM)

    Let’s Go Alex!!! just. don’t. K.

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    Fuck yes, Ibanez. You just made sure A-Rod can’t GIDP.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

  • Joe F

    RAUUUUL.

  • Hummingbird S.

    oh boy, finally some luck… now let’s see how they blow this opportunity

  • Alex Rodriguez

    My first homer is coming!

  • Pasqua

    1B line is wonky tonight. Oh, and Prince Fielder demonstrates that he doesn’t understand the fair / foul rule. Good job.

  • Matt

    They better score 2 here. Hit it the other way.

  • Chilango

    Take advantage of the break guys let’s go!

  • Joe F

    Just bunt because you have no shot Alex. (Reverse Jinx.)

    • Monterowasdinero

      He is incapable.

  • Knoxvillain

    Incoming K. Great.

  • Big “Nostradanus” Member

    uh oh. tigers must be scared….no outs…2 runners in scoring position…oh wait who is comming up big member? swisher, granderson and arod? hahahahahahahaha

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

  • Karl Krawfid

    Bench this scrub again.

  • Anthony

    A-Rod…….

  • Hummingbird S.

    seriously, can anyone defend this motherfucker? 3 pitch strikeout?? FUCK AROD and FUCK GIRARDI

  • Knoxvillain

    Fuck you, A-Rod. I hope he gets hit in the head by a Verlander fastball so we don’t have to see him play again.

  • TinoBambino24

    Cut your wrists, Rodriguez.

  • mike

    bench the fucker for the rest of the year

  • Matt

    TBS said it perfectly.

    You are batting 2 guys who are a combined 2 for their last 54 with RISP in the postseason BACK TO BACK.

    That is how you kill rallies. Fucking idiot Girardi.

  • Joe F

    This is fucking pathetic. I’m sorry. I defend Alex all the time, but he constantly strikes out on the SAME pitch every time.

  • BigBlueAL

    Just wow.

  • Bret “The Hitman” Gardner

    Girardi manages out of a binder in his gut. Fucking idiot needs to get that fucking piece of shit A-Rod out of this lineup.

  • Alex Rodriguez

    I am a twat.

  • Jeffery maier is smiling

    Swisher up to k

  • Widget

    Must be nice to be a pitcher and now that you can put two on with no outs, and still get out of it because A-Rod, Swisher, and Granderson are easy outs.

  • Knoxvillain

    We aren’t going to score a fucking run.

    • luisergi

      Gotta hand it to you, fucking pathetic.

  • Hummingbird S.

    hanging curve, can’t put it in play

  • dkidd

    if monkeys punching random typewriter keys will eventually write “hamlet”, then swisher will get a hit eventually

  • Get Phelps Up (wins needed: 8)

      He was drafted by them. He has one.

  • Monterowasdinero

    2 guys who cannot shorten their swings.

    2 dumb, selfish head cases.

    Arod and Swish in the post season.

    • Monterowasdinero

      This, but I’ll take the walk with extra pitches thrown.

    Let that hit you Swisher. Contribute somehow.

  • Nice Scheister

    This is pathetic.

    Yankee killers Arod and Swish

  • BigBlueAL

    Swish having a much better at-bat than Arod at least.

  • Knoxvillain

    Incoming Grandyslam.

  • Matt

    I’m stunned that Swisher didn’t strike out there. Granderson better make him pay for all of these hangers.

  • Dan in Athens

    3rd time with bases loaded? Really?

  • Joe

    Do it grandy. I believe.

  • Anthony

    OH GOD bases loaded what bull crap is going to happen now???

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Granderson.

    Hoo boy.

    Gee, what could the pitch sequence to Granderson consist of?

    • Pasqua

      Yyyyyyyuppppp.

    WHAT THE FUCK? IN THE DIRT.

    Bases loaded with one out? Perfect time for an inning ending double play. You know what to do Grandy!

  • Joe F

    KURTIS.

    And ANOTHER three pitch strike out.

    Fuck these guys.

    great fucking AB Kurtis.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    This fucking team.

    I see where this is going.

  • wow

    I’d trade Curtis back to Det for Coke straight up..

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    OMG. This team fucking sucks.

  • mike

    show some muscle for christ sake

  • Matt

    The funny part is that curveball was so terrible down and in that any legitimate lefty power hitter probably hits a grand slam

  • oldmanalex

    aright so John smoltz is openly mocking the yankees and their fan base.

  • Chilango

    Doesn’t the binder say ARod-Swisher-Granderson is DISASTER?

  • dkidd

    i have faith in russell

  • Jeffery maier is smiling

    Ata boy grandy would rather see both you and swisher sitting tommorow.
    Rather see gardner and ibanez with ichiro in cf

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    But strikeouts don’t matter, right guys?

  • Pasqua

    Granderson is Pedro Serano incarnate.

    “Fuck you, Jobu.”

    It’s getting borderline comical.

    • luisergi

      The only one laughing is the idiot wearing #33

  • A-Rod

    I made 35K during that at bat.

  • Joe

    This offense is pathetic. Screw this I’m going to watch Anderson Silva tool a clown.

  • Joe F

    Swing at horrible pitches. Take great pitches. Fuck you offense.

  • Pete

    Granderson & Swisher will get off the hook for everything *only* because A-Rod is who he is…

    • Joe F

      They all suck.

    • Hummingbird S.

      who gives a shit? they all suck and they all get paid millions of dollars. If they had a real manager those guys wouldn’t be playing anymroe

    • Coolerking101

      I call BS. Swisher is costing himself millions, if not tens of millions on the free agent market.

      Granderson will hear it non-stop.

      A-Rod is the highest paid player in baseball who other than 2009, has made a career out of choking. What’s his lifetime playoff RISP, not counting 2009? .150/.225/.330? He deserves all the venom that’ spewed his way.

  • Hummingbird S.

    what is he waiting for? hanging curve and fastball up… fucking pathetic

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle AKA True Yankee(TM)

    Fuck you Smoltz, he hasn’t “wiggled out” of it here. Yet.

  • Widget

    Why is Granderson starting? It’s a serious question. He can’t be allowed to continue to start. He is killing this team.

  • John

    We should trade Grandy for Tyler Clippard.

  • Matt

    If they don’t even score one run in this inning, the game is probably over.

    Just when you think they can’t do any worse, they do this.

  • Eddard

    LOL Girardi stacking up ARod, Swisher and Granderson. The whiff, the whiff, the whiff. Martin the whiff. LOL! Just atrocious.

  • Dan in Athens

    One K in 5 innings and now Fister strikes out the side for the Yanks third fail with the bases loaded. I cannot even make this shit up.

    well, that’s it. this team is sad. screw this team. all of them.

    This team will be swept out of the ALCS

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    How do you even come back from that?

  • Bret “The Hitman” Gardner

    what a fucking joke

  • John

    I bet A-Rod gets pinch hit for in the 8th or 9th. Not that it will matter by then.

    • Pete

      Who, Jayson Nix? heh…

  • flamingo

    This is ridiculous. Something’s gotta give.

    • stuart a

      they will lose that is what will give.

      arod is so fucking bad it is indescribable. ditto for swisher and granderson to name 3….

    This game sucks so far.

    Just thought I’d state an outlier thought few agree with.

    It’s over, guys. Even if the good hitters get on you’ve got the three stooges back to back to back. LOL Girardi!

  • xnyles

    LOL. This team.

    2B Cano
    1B Tex
    DH Ibanez
    C Martin
    RF Swisher
    CF Gardner

    • Knoxvillain

      Swisher’s been worse than Granderson. The best thing that could happen to this Yankees team is his death.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      That’s good. Just leave third base empty. That’ll work.

    • Hugh

      You’d play with 8?

      Hmnnn. It could work.

      • Ari

        thinking the same thing, couldnt make it any worse…

  • babnik

    dont worry guys – too small a sample size – no one choked. everything’s great.

  • TurdFerguson10

    Wow, this team is just pitiful. Should have pinch hit CC for ARod.

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    CF Gardner
    3B Chavie

  • Athenian

    Good thing two runs is a piece of cake. Yanks are getting swept.

  • Hummingbird S.

    this game is already lost. If Joe Girardi comes back tomorrow with all three of A-Rod, Granderson and Swisher, he has to be fired on the spot. It’s time to give Chavez and Gardner ABs. They are a lot better than this pathetic motherfuckers.

    • TinoBambino24

      And Gardner is a contact hitter. The thought of an outfield of Gardner and Span tickle my pickle.

    • BigBlueAL

      Chavez went 0 for 8 in the ALDS I believe.

      • TinoBambino24

        BigBlueAL says:

        I’d take Helen Keller at this point at 3B.

  • Matt

    There is no other way to put it.

    THIS OFFENSE IS A FUCKING DISGRACE TO THE FRANCHISE

    Fister hung pitch after pitch early in the count, and they stood there and took them. Then they swung at shit nowhere near the plate with 2 strikes.

    I wouldn’t be shocked to see them get swept if they lose this game. You can’t waste these chances against good pitchers and good teams and EVER expect to win.

  • Eddard

    They were handing you at least one run. Hit one groundball and you’ve cut the lead in half. They couldn’t even do that! Chavez and Gardner should be playing tomorrow.

  • Hugh

    2nd and 3rd no outs and can’t even put a ball in play. Ineptitude of the highest order.

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    “Oh don’t worry, they scored lots of runs this season. Plus strikeouts are just like any other kind of out.”

  • Jeffery maier is smiling

    Send a message giradi send gardner to cf.

  • wow

    i don’t see how how having a-rod, swisher, and granderson in one lineup is even remotely a good idea. let alone stack them all.

    • stuart a

      einstein where do you want to bat them? arod 4th? etc.

      they just fucking suck…it is not girardi’s fault these over paid pieces of shit simply suck…

      not real complicated…..

  • Pasqua

    I don’t normally get into the psychological stuff, but here’s my concern: How much longer can we expect quality starts from the rotation? At some point, the starters will feel the pressure of having to be perfect in order to give the team a chance to win. What happens then?

  • Monterowasdinero

    A push bunt. A go to weapon when you cannot make contact with the bases loaded. These guys are so awful and inflexible.

  • JLC 776

    I don’t care for this particular brand of Yankees baseball at all.

  • Pasqua

    If it’s possible to be mindfucked, the Yankees are totally mindfucked.

  • stuart a

    this has occured all season long…

    the tigers will beat the yanks for the 3rd straight playoffs…

    there offense is the worst i have seen in my lieftime and i am an old fuck.

  • dkidd

    just get to their bullpen

    we can win this game (but that was an epic epic fail)

    • luisergi

      This isn’t about who is pitching, the offense sucks.

  • Eddard

    Remember what everyone told you guys, you can’t hit 4 solo home runs in the postseason. You have to get clutch hits with RISP. And people just waved it off and said, no we don’t. Yes you do. Detroit did and that’s why they’re going to win this ballgame.

  • Peter

    LOL. THis lineup is freaking pathetic. Bunch of chokers. Tigers had 1 chance in 6 innings to score, meanwhile, we had 3 bases loaded. This is just f*** ridiculously

  • John

    Id pinch hit litteraly anyone on the team for Arod and grandy. Id seriously send Eppley in a pressure situation over arod. Hed at least make contact.

  • Pete

    All things considered, this would be an excellent outing by Andy to give up 2 in 7 to this team…

  • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

    This is the kind of game that could make me murder someone.

    I think Smoltz is first on my list.

    • Knoxvillain

      Girardi
      Swisher
      Granderson
      A-Rod

      Jeter (just to put him out of his misery)

    • Nice Scheister

      I be the driver.

  • Starks

    Iv said when i saw the lineup and i will say it again, wtf is girardi thinking having arod swish cheese and granderson back to back to back???. U Nreal man.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    IF GEORGE WAS ALIVE!!!!!

  • JLC 776

    Sorry, Pettitte. You don’t deserve this kind of crap.

    Four more losses until Kevin Long is fired.

    • stuart a

      that will help.. will it help swisher get a brain and some balls? help granderson get a clue..

      help arod whatever, he is so pathetic, cry me a river.

      • Knoxvillain

        Swisher will be gone soon, thank God.

      • JLC 776

        It will help the ‘swing for the fences with every AB’ mentality. It will help the ‘inability to adjust to how I’m being pitched’ disease we’ve seen. This team is conditioned from top to bottom to zero in on the short fence and nothing else.

  • https://twitter.com/KramerIndustry Kramerica Industries

    Just imagine – this is the best lineup money can buy.

    • Pete

      Problem becomes when everyone hits HRs all year long, and then no one sees themselves as a table setter. Everyone thinks they can be the slugger, and then you have people like Granderson and Swisher swinging at crap.

      • Pasqua

        I also think that HR’s are hit because pitchers make mistakes (a flat slider, a missed spot, etc.). In the playoffs, the quality of pitching is better, which leads to fewer mistakes and, in turn, fewer homeruns. Also, I think many guys fall into the Stadium Swing and that leads to the uppercut. I don’t think they’re thinking “Hit a homerun!” but they’ve adapted their swings (for better or for worse).

    • nyyankfan7

      that’s the problem, we don’t have the guys who are willing to hit the ground ball to score a run. every one of our guys thinks they need to hit a home run every at bat and be the hero.

  • Anthony

    I wish Pettite could make Grandy and A-rod feel like shit about that inning. I’ve never seen a choke job like that before. Even when we get LUCKY BREAKS we STILL can’t do anything with them.

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    So….maybe the off-season gameplan should be to get some offense?

    • The Troll

      Or trade Jesus and AJax . . . Wait a second . . .

  • John

    Oh heres AJAX, the guy we game up for the K machine.

    • stuart a

      moron yankee fans did not want to wait for him to develop…

      yankee fans have the patience of a dog….

      granderson sucks.. i have been saying it all season along with my gripes about arod, cano, and others but nah….they will be fine…

      afterall they hit home runs, accept arod he is a singles hitter if he hits ever………..

      • Joe F

        Granderson does not suck. He’s a streaky home run hitter. Most HR hitters don’t hit .300 with 40 home runs. They take big hacks and risks. Therefore Grandy’s K% goes up. Is Jackson better right now? Yes, but don’t say Granderson sucks. That’s false.

      • Nice Scheister

        “accept arod, he is a singles hitter.”

        It is what it is.

  • Nathan

    The Yankees don’t deserve to win this game…not like they will, just saying that they don’t deserve to win the way they (aren’t) hitting.

    Geezus this offense is frustrating.

  • Tom

    Hero ball! He had 1 strikeout coming into that inning. and he strikes out the side with a guy on 3rd.

    Somebody shorten up a damn swing with 2 strikes. No change in approach whatsoever, Fister knows this and abuses them with K’s 3 breaking pitches well out of the zone.

    At least Swisher had some discipline, but with men on base there are just too many wannabe heroes looking to pull the ball 500ft instead of just putting a ball in play.

  • 101010

    I wish I was at the game so I could start a “please retire” chant every time Arod fails to deliver.

  • oldmanalex

    fuck… i sooo wish we still had austin over curtis,

  • Sdjohn

    Well at least they are takin their A swings eh mike

  • John

    As a joke but in a total serious way, someone should replace Arods and Grandys NY on their hat with a K. They’ll get the message.

  • dalelama

    The Chokemasters strike again. It is disgraceful to see Arod quit like a dog and not run out the dropped strike three.

  • Mick taylor

    Arod grandy and Martin all swung at the same pitch in the dirt why didn’t they recognize that as aball after arod swung at it where is Kevin long

  • Eddard

    And how much would you like to have Austin Jackson back right now? A young, speedy good defender who hits for average. We’re stuck with an aging strike out machine who is a horrible defender in CF. Jackson got the clutch hit to spark his team. Granderson struck out on 3 pitches for the 30th time in a row with RISP.

    • Matt

      Jackson has struck out as much as Granderson almost every year of his career. Don’t be stupid.

  • Chilango

    Einstein said doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity. WTF are ARod and Granderson and Swisher doing in the lineup? Put in Chavez and Gardner FFS. Too bad CDick is not here, so we’re still stuck with Mr smiley face Nick -I’m laughing all the way to the bank so who gives a fuck -Swisher.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Choo and Upton for Yankees ’13. Sign my petition!!

    • Joe F

      If Choo is cheaper than Swisher then okay. Essentially the same.

      • Knoxvillain

        Can’t say that. He might be able to play baseball when it actually matters.

        Swisher is a fucking loser and I hope he never files for bankruptcy and never has a job again.

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

          Reasonable.

          Swisher reached base that inning, by the way.

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Is anyone else getting sick of “A-Rod face?”

    You know, when he takes a very hittable strike one, sticks his bottom lip out and nods emphatically like he agrees with the call.

    • John

      omg, I know exactly what you mean, ive thought this so many times hahahaha. Hes a strange bird.

    • Luisergi

      +1

  • Joe F

    I’m so mad.

  • John

    Its so selfish for Arod to not do what is necessary to give him the ability to hit: Steroids.

    • nyyankfan7

      wish he would. 50 games without him might be beneficial.

  • True blue

    Tomorrow the of needs to be Ibanez, Gardner, Ichiro in the OF and Chavez at 3rd.. I’d DH Nix for Christsakes- he hd better AB’s than 90%o the team

    Here’s a stat to chew on: 16 runs in 56 innings this postseason, which is 2.57 R/G. But, there’s more to that. They’ve had one inning where they scored multiple runs, and that was the outburst in Game 1 against the Orioles. Exclude that one paltry inning (out of 56), and that number drops to 1.80 R/G. Seriously.

    • Chilango

      Right. Ibañez basically saved the series. Not going to happen twice. We lose tonight then get Verlander twice. Does not look good.

  • Nathan

    No reason to be angry, Andy.

    Not your fault the hitters can’t get a hit.

  • Anthony

    Fans should be cheering Pettite harder.

  • BigBlueAL

    Pettitte may not want to come back next season with the type of run support he has gotten this postseason.

  • fin

    Cant say I’m surprised with the RISP. The way they struggled during the regular season I saw no reason to believe they would turn it around when the spotlight was on. That being said, bases loaded 3x and no runs is pretty damn impressive even for the Yankees.

  • Eddard

    Andy did more than enough tonight. He did his job. He was hurt by an awful offense and Teixera just standing there and pointing while Swisher had to run all the way in from RF to get Austin Jackson’s triple.

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    They could have tied the score with OUTS. That’s all I wanted. Sac flies still exist, right?

  • Knoxvillain

    Nice job by Pettitte. Too bad he’s stuck having to support a bunch of choking cocksuckers.

  • Big “Nostradanus” Member

    Okay. Ive done enough game watching to analise what is wrong with this team. The nswer is simple. Our guys are not hitting. At all. in these deer times we need to take action.

    texas is out of the race. their franchise is now the joke of the league. but they have one player who can change the outcome. who is is big member you will say? the asnwer is rather obvious really. we need ALL the hitters texas has. but thats just silly. texas cant trade all thier players! but they can trade ther very best…josh hamilton.

    since texas season is over, they can make trades. i made sure this is right becasue i asked my firend and he said yeah. so we need totrade for josh who is a free agent when the season is over anyway and texas doesnt really need him becasue they are not playing anymore this year. simple right? we have alot of picthing that we can give texas. i think ivan nova and phelps should cover ALDS and potentially WS for josh.

    we will need to pump josh back into shape tho but its easy, just get the coke and boze and hes ready to mash. sit swisher, granderson and arod and let them learn from the JOSH

      Wow, good job! Nobody had ever noticed that over the course of the season.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      You put a lot of work into this one.

      Nice.

    • Knoxvillain

      “Okay. Ive done enough game watching to analise what is wrong with this team. The nswer is simple. Our guys are not hitting.”

      FUCKING LOL. Thanks for the analysis.

    • Ari

      you know hes a free agent right

    • nyyankfan7

      the last thing we need is an overpaid guy swinging for the fences. how bout we get the guys who are willing to set the table.

    • John

      ahahahaha “I asked my friend and he said yeah.”

      • Joe F

        This isn’t a serious person right? He used MLB 2k12 as an argument as to why Swisher would have caught the ball.

    • Pat D (I’m not adding to my handle. Aw, crap.)

      Usually I try not to be this mean, but…

      FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING, SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

  • Luisergi

    You are great Andy, don’t be mad, just kick A-rod in the nuts for me.

    • Nice Scheister

      Andy went to urinate in A-Rod and Grandys lockers. Or maybe turd in them. It will be a mystery, like AJs black eye.

  • Matt

    This is not rocket science. Fister threw curveball after curveball in the dirt. He basically did to this team what you thought was only possible in a video game.

    These hitters can’t believe that he threw another curveball, even though that is practically the only pitch he threw in the inning.

  • Hugh

    Really Lowe in a close game. Saving DRob for what, please?

    • JLC 776

      Why would you bring DRob in when we’re down by two and have Kuroda on three days rest tomorrow?

  • Luke

    Risp fail!! Triple face palm!

  • Cy Pettitte

    Derek Lowe struck out Miggy on 3 pitches LOL

  • Hall and Nokes

    Binder!

  • Luisergi

    WOW Andy IS MAD!!! i love that guy!!!

  • flamingo

    Not what I was expecting from Lowe, but hey, great job.

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    Let’s hear more platitudes about “regressing to the mean.” Those always cheer me up when they Yanks get nothing out of bases loaded situations.

  • Kiko Jones

    Yankees teaching a master class in RISP fail. Utterly disgusting.

  • Pasqua

    Who ya’ keeping? Swisher, or Granderson?

  • Matt

    If I told you before the game that Cabrera would be unable to do much of anything at the plate, and Fielder would have been held to just a single, and the Yankees would have 9 baserunners off of Fister, and Pettitte would have been lights out, would you think they’d lose this game?

    It’s incredible. No team in baseball except the Yankees could pull this off.

  • bobtaco

    Chavez for Arod, Nix for Swisher, and Gardner for Grandy tomorrow. Gotta happen.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Gardner in left, Ichiro in right.

  • wow

    it’s ok. our offense is totally not one-dimensional. they’re just waiting to hit the HRs when they feel like it.

  • BigBlueAL

    Knicks-Celtics in an overtime thriller right now!!
