Fifth career 0-for-6 for Robinson Cano and his second in three days.
Phelps vs Miggy and Prince is less than ideal
robertson should be staying in here.
Simply can’t score any runs while keeping the ball in the ballpark.
Arod gets benched but the guy going 0-6 every game is going to keep batting third.
WHO ELSE IS THERE!
Nix can play right field and 2B at the same time, see?
Iunno but that guy are actually hitting can hit before him
amen on phelps, cross your fingers.
And of course, if the ump makes the correct call in the second inning, we’re not having this conversation.
You mean that “predetermined outcome” business? That’s not a real “fallacy.” It’s a kind of speculation in its own right.
Fallacy and all that… but, yeah – I keep flashing to that as well. But more so the 2nd and 3rd no outs.
Wrong, you can’t put it tat easily, life/time doesnt work like that. chaos theory, butterfly effect and all that crap you know…
Don’t forget Girardi’s boneheaded decision to leave Lowe in then follow him with Logan.
I’m scared now of the curvy guys due up
Who wants a touchdown?
Cano can’t pull a ball to save his life.
Swinging 2-1 or 2-0 which Ich had that ball stolen easy.
Sick of this home run or nothing shit man.
This is slowly shifting from feeling like Game 3 to feeling like Game 4.
HUGE half-inning ahead.
Deep down I knew they weren’t going to avoid another trip through Cabrera/Fielder. It’s the way the last six weeks have gone: agony first.
But Ibanez next AB is a long ways off.
Unfortunately we are starting to run out of pitchers as well thanks to Girardi’s pointless mixing and matching earlier in the game.
The longer that this goes on, the more likely it is that Detroit gets lucky and steals this one right back. We are giving them way too much hope, and here come Cabrera and Fielder…
the only guys who get big hits on the yanks have to be 38 years old or older.
cano is atrocious…give me a break..key inning….
This game is taking forever.
Miggy and Prince.
This is the price to pay when you can’t take care of business on offense.
Miggy/Prince. Yanks gonna have to REALLY earn this. But I still feel good.
Tigers score here
love the confidence.
Cant let a team hang around forever, yanks kept swinging for the fences.
No Drob? Oh no.
Is the announcing crew contractually barred from saying Cano is 0-22 now?!?!?!
Let’s go, low and inside just like Lowe did last time.
Im closing my eyes for this half-inning.
Why is Robertson not facing Cabrera and Fielder?
Is Girardi nuts?
phelps. needs to come up big here.
Trying to hit a walk off home run when all you need is a fucking single man.
Could have choked up and put the ball in play.
remember those days when we would all gather, quite naively.. about person A batting third, while person B needing to protect him…. those days are long gone. This lineup is so out of wack, yet somehow the people you least expect, come through. lol.
Cmon david destroy Goliath!!!
Can’t even advance the lead off base-runner?? Inexcusable! Why can’t these damn hitters get inspired by Ichiro and Ibanez? This team is being carried by I^2
Boy, we really need to win this game. Going DEEP into the pen with Kuroda on short rest tomorrow today.
Every one of his swings scare the crap outta me.
He’s pitched Miguel well so far.
I would’ve preferred DRob stay in but, for reasons passing understanding, I’m still feeling a W.
That swing almost gave me a heart attack hopefully he doesnt straighten them out.
Why isn’t DRob still in for the big bats?
Each swing terrifies me…
Keep pitching to the same spot and he will kill you David.
1-2 to a walk.
That’s really, really bad, David.
We’ll take that. Miguel is not a good baserunner. Neither is Prince
Can’t walk him damn.
Fuck , why did they go away at all. Low and in was working perfectly.
I cant watch.
And now Phelps is going to have to contend with Miggy and Fielder. Should have won it there. After DRob we lose just like we did Game 4 of the ALDS. Smyly? Can’t believe they couldn’t beat him.
Why TF did Girardi take DRob out
Advances the base runner, though. That’s not good.
Miguel Cabrera does not scare me with his speed.
Better pray that walk doesn’t score.
God’s running a big operation and doesn’t follow the games.
C’mon, THEY can do it!!!
Some bad shit coming
Why not walk Young with the base open?
I wouldn’t even pitch to Delmon Young. He’ll hit it off the rosin bag and it’ll ricochet out of the ballpark.
Phelps does not look good.
If Young comes trough again i’m gonna throw up
All for naught.
Swisher fucks up again.
Seen that a mile a fuck way.
Should have lost in 9. Fucking trash team.
Fuck you Swisher.. I hope you rot in Kansas City you overrated chump
Great job Girardi bringing in fucking Phelps and again great D by Swish.
oh god make it stop
if swisher is not benched tomorrow. I refuse to watch baseball.
Why even pitch to him. And why take out DRob. Swisher’s a buffoon.
Fucking Swisher. Bullshit. What was that?!
One more reason why Swisher is useless to this team.
Of course. Will someone please tell me why Phelps was put in there and why the didn’t put Young on. Swisher fucks up again (by the way)
WHAT THE FUCK, Swisher.
Also, I don’t like Phelps over another D-Rob or Joba AT ALL here.
That’s Swishers fault, unbelievable!
Phelps is dog shit
THANKS AGAIN CLUELESS JOE
Take out your best pitcher when their best hitters are coming to the plate. What do you think is going to happen when you give them that kind of opening?
Girardi may have single handedly lost them nearly every game this postseason that they haven’t won. It’s unbelievable to think that a guy could be so stupid.
Swisher just fucking sucks
Swish on the take
Swisher is such a fucking loser. saw this loss coming, no way Phelps was gonna get through an inning starting with Miggy and Prince unscathed. How do you not use D-Rob?
Girardi bringing in Phelps when he was bad his last outing.
Throwing Robertson and Soriano one inning each.
Oh well. Give credit to the Yankees for making this a fight. That’s all we can and should ask for in a playoff system where luck plays a dominant factor.
Shut up. You’re such an idiot. I can’t believe you actually believe what you say in these posts.
When you pop up or strike out every time a runner is on base, you are not getting unlucky. Wake up and stop being a fucking idiot.
Do you think they are intentionally failing in their jobs. Do you think they want to fail?
The whole game of baseball is essentially boiled down to this. Hitting a ball with a little wooden stick and “HOPING” that it falls in somewhere amongst a grass field.
You are so stupid. They aren’t hitting the ball hard. Weak fly balls, pop ups, and strike outs are almost never going to lead to base hits. I’m done wasting my time arguing with you. Stop making excuses and accept that these guys CHOKED mightily.
Can’t hit. Can’t field. Get that POS off this baseball team.
Fuck you Swisher, Chinga tu puta madre maricon de mierda, keep smiling you fool.
Pitching around Cabrera for no fucking reason. NO FUCKING REASON.
Now he decides to dive.
Phelps isn’t ready for prime time. He’s got promise, but I guess I would have taken my chances with Robertson against their big guys.
swusher after the game should be classic.
that is plain and simple an error..
you must catch it…
Should have walked Young with the base open, inexcusable by Girardi
Swisher should just quit baseball and become an aerobics and tumbling teacher. He’s worthless.
Said it before and I’ll say it again … Swisher is one of the worst players in MLB post season history.
The numbers don’t like. But he’s a Girardi guy.
Take A-Rod out but leave the clown in.
But but he walks.
Opposing team’s strategy is to take the Yankees to extra innings and wait for Phelps to come in.
Well, the 9th inning was a nice little honeymoon. Talk about A-rod? What about Swisher? At least A-rod is solid at 3B… same with Cano. Jesus christ.
Yanks- fucking figure Delmon Young out already. The guy’s a fucking hacker. Fucking pathetic.
missed a lot of the game was out but caught the 9th/10th innings
why is swisher still playing? Gardner was pinch running for someone no?
wait wtf he pinch ran for granderson?! REALLY? WTF
David Phelps is dead wood.
That was totally catchable by a better OF, yes it was smoked but wow. I miss Ichiro in RF.
I hate David Phelps
He probably hates you too.
oh fuck. fuck fuck fuck.
Series is over now folks.
Series ends in one game?
Oh great. That’s what we need to have more of.
Oh for the love of Vader.
Season is over. Jeter injured
Jeter? Jeter, are you okay?
I would have rather lost 4-0.
Really, so you would rather get your ass kicked than have a chance to actually win the game? Brilliant!!!!
If Jeter is seriously hurt, it probably would be better to lose one battle and live to fight and possibly win the war, than lose your best player (and in the post he has been the best player on this team) and severely cripple your chances to win this series.
This one’s on Girardi. Fuck you.
Its really not, though.
Yeah Girardi loaded the bases 3 times and plated zip. Yep, he was in right field and missed that catchable ball. Please.
saw this coming…
the yankees cannot get over the hump.
cano is a joke… this team is a joke.
they are living off a 40 year old guy with magic…
phelps again could not get the job done and swisher did not help.
LEADOFF WALK, NICE MOVE DAVEY. SO INSTEAD OF LOSING 90 MINUTES AGO THEY WILL JUST LOSE NOW…
They’re in the ALCS. I think they’re okay.
I get you’re emotional, but just stop it…
Shut the fuck up.
Then how about you do us all a favor and leave….forever, seriously just go troll
I don’t know why all of you are so upset. Did you “expect” differently?
I didn’t expect the Yankees to beat the Tigers. I didn’t expect the Orioles to beat the Tigers either. Because they are both too streaky on offense.
oh just shut the fuck up. yeah, i watch the yankee games to root for them to not win or expect them not to win. stupidest comment i’ve heard in a long time.
Oh for the love of God….
I defend you a lot, but Jesus Greg. You’re watching the team while expecting to lose? You think we should all be expecting the team that finished 1st in the AL to lose? And you don’t understand why Derek Jeter getting hurt and us making a 9th inning comeback and then giving up 2 in the 12th makes people upset?
Because the best team almost never wins it all. You know that. Were the Cardinals the best team last year? No.
Why did they win? They got hot. AND THEY GOT LUCKY.
The only time in the Torre Era where the Yankees had the best record in baseball and won was 1998.
i cannot wait until next years gardner grandy ichiro OF
50Homers combined from the outfield?! Brilliant!
better than stat padding outfielders
No, it really isn’t. Those stat padding outfielders produced quite a bit while playing decent-good defense despite injuries. Granderson played every game for half the season. We finished 1st in the league and made it to the ALCS and now we’re making fairly huge changes to the complexion of the team.
no its removing swisher for gardner, thats it
But the production is a major change. That’s what I meant by complexion. Its the difference between this year’s having one slap hitter in the OF about half the time two having 2 slap hitters in the OF ALL the time. You’re talking virtually no power from the corners, a guy who missed the season and has never been an offensive force in Gardner, and Ichiro, who’s looked done for all but the last few weeks.
Where are we replacing the lost offense? An ARod resurgence? Tex flashback to 2007? The Captain supposed to have an even BETTER year than this one?
remember when derek jeter looked done too?
ichiro provides 10-15HR power, great defense, and 30 stolen bases
garder can get on base, best defense in the league, and 40+sb
grandy gives you 40HR… unfortunately no longer any sb
with swisher you lose 20-25HR but thats it
this just keeps getting better. none of this would have happened if they could get a fucking hit with RISP.
Great. A double disaster.
I think his Achilles popped.
oh fuck oh ufck oh fuck oh fuck.
Just a devastating loss.
Ichiro and Raul did their bit, but these other guys are a mess and are getting a lesson from the Tigers in how to come through.
oh great fking great… roll out the cannnons
And that comeback was all for naught. Jeter’s now gone, too. All because Swisher is a buffoon and Joe hasn’t realized that Delmon Young destroys us.
I blame Swisher.
Now we lose Jeter.
If Jeter has to miss any time, this series might be over…..
Now I think I’ve lost hope…
This is just getting worse and worse
IF FUCKING Cano/A-Rod/Swisher/Curtis would have been able to get us ANY production Jeter would have never been injured…. Im so sick of our inability to hit with RISP, Cashman better bust his ass this winter.
He’ll focus on pitching like he always does. Because God knows, our pitchers can’t hit with the bases loaded against the Tigers.
And now the captain. Way to go heros that cant move runners. Nice. fister line drive off his wrist pitchesc7 shutout innings, Jeter trips in mud, prob gone for the post season
i wish they would have just lost in the 9th screw this
Im still trying to figure out why Phelps started this inning.
who else you putting in?
Nobody, Robertson pitches this inning.
Lol and we dont even have Nunny for short… we have Nix!
This is a nightmare
And now the “fire Girardi” crowd is going to come out. In one of his best managerial years according to multiple people.
Here’s an idea. BLAME THE F***ING PLAYERS BEFORE YOU BLAME THE MANAGER.
Here’s an idea. Worry about yourself and not what other people think. You’ll be less annoying that way. Maybe.
How can I worry about myself when I am conversing in a forum and the messages a right in front of my face, being repeated over and over.
Don’t like it?
You are an idiot.
this is the worst defensive inning ever. that’s an easy DP.
These guys are fucking morons. Unbelievable.
That did it, even my optimism is exhausted now
Phelps please just has to go
The incompetence is astounding.
fucking nightmare, i’m blaming Raul for prolonging it.
I’m not trying to panic here but…
Phelps needs to go away
I’m “watching” Gameday. What happened to Jeter?
His leg or foot gave out. He could not be saved. He was put down on the field.
It’s over. The Captain is now lost for the rest of the playoffs. Phelps is an idiot. Swisher doesn’t do anything but do barrel rolls. Valverde won’t be closing anymore games so this was our chance.
So if they had to DL Jeter, he wouldn’t even be eligible for the next series either?
That looked quite bad. ACL bad.
Correct, out for the WS if he gets replaced on the roster.
Put it in the books, this game is gone, and with the way our offense is looking, this series is a supreme long shot, I hope we win 1 game because we still have to face their top 2 pitchers…
I would be happy to never see Phelp pitch again this post season.
Lineup needs to be Ichiro/arod/cano/teix/ibanez(DH)/granderson/martin/nix(miss nunez)/gardner
Swisher should have caught the fly hit by fielder and the one hit by young he sucks. And why did girardi think phelps could handle the 12 th inning
Take him the fuck out of the game.. This guy Is Sergio Fucking Mitre
Jeter is done btw. WHatever his injury is it is bad…
Jeter is everything Cano is not..
Hope the delusions realize how overrated Cano is….He is a hack unless you are john smoltz who said he is selective at the plate.
Phelps is imploding, all started with the leadoff walk……
There was no reason to pitch to Delmon Young with first base open. How many times does he have to beat the Yankees before Girardi stops pitching to him? Especially with Phelps pitching.
Peralta and the rest of the hitters are terrible. They could have easily gotten out of the inning if they had walked Young.
Taking Grandy out for Gardner was stupid,
Not pitching his pen longer and ending up with Phelps was stupid,
Starting Swisher was stupid,
Starting AROD was stupid,
And on and on, lots of very poor decisions made in this game AND poor play.
Does Swish not get laid if he comes home with a clean uni. What a deush, he always tumbles when he doesn’t have to. At least he’s hitting. Oh wait. But hey let’s bench Arod and pinch hit all we can for him while Swish kills em.
jeter is done for the series, now the yanks will really fold.
you will find; cano, arod, swisher and grandy lieing in the corner of the lockerroom in the fetal position looking for there mommies…
A-Rod at SS tomorrow and Chavez at 3B?
anyone else want Girardi far away, why Phelps just why I dont get it. dude clearly isnt ready for this he showed it the other night and hes shown it again just awful Girardi just hate it
sorry, but Phelps should never have been in the game. the idea of saving robertson for tomorrow is invalid. the game was given right back to the yankees when they had no business tying it up… their best hitters are coming up. you have to pitch your best available guy.
girardi is really screwing the pooch.
Well I assume that we’ll lose this game and that Jeter will not be back until next year. That being said, im not giving up on the ALCS. Jeter going down might light something under them. I have no rational basis for thinking that, only hope.
Saying it will lead them to victory is just as baseless as saying it will lead to defeat, so might as well be optimistic. We’ll just have to find out.
Jeter gone might be the last straw for this year. No way do they win the series without Jeter.
All they needed was a base fucking hit.
Martin was swinging for the damn fences.
Home run or nothing team.
Time to save yourselves, again. ESPECIALLY YOU, Swisher. I’m not even sure a miracle two-run HR would atone for all the detrimental bullshit he has done to this team this postseason, and throughout his Yankee postseason career.
Here’s the narrative: with the Captain down (but still in the dugout for every second), the bats come alive and the superstars get some fire back.
Not tonight, probably tomorrow
You saw this coming. More chances than they deserved, to win and they choke. OK we’re used to that. But what.. THE FUCK.. was Girardi thinking putting Phelps in against the big bats.
The problem is who else do we have? We already used Eppley, Rapada, DRob and Soriano. Who’s left? Freddy Garcia???
Girardi just didn’t want to win this ballgame. His entire pen had the night off last night courtesy of CC and he treated it like it was a Spring Training game. Soriano and DRob for 1 inning only? Lowe left in when it’s 2-0? Awful managing. And that directly led to the Jeter injury. It’s OVER.
I’m eternally positive, but loosing jeter puts a massive hurt on this team. Going to make it very tough on them going forward if he can’t play. Someone will have to step up huge. HUGE.
This was all Arod’s fault obviously.
I wonder if A-Rod can play SS?
That’s right. I just asked that.
It may invigorate him, I’m grasping for anything here.
Dude can barely move laterally at 3B. They will NEVER put him in that position. He hasn’t been there in almost a decade, and he’s already been put through the ringer enough.
I blame this one on Leyland. If he had pulled Valverde when he was supposed to, we’d just take the loss in the 9th without Jeter getting hurt.
Guy Smyly here pitching like Nolan Ryan
Recall Nunez for Jeter, then Nova for Phelps (ball hit his hand), he may suck but IMO Phelps’ nerves are to blame more than his stuff/ability. Nova’s extra rest may have him ready to roll like tide.
I never thought I’d miss Bobby “scared shitless of the RF wall” Abreu
Amen to that! He was the perfect #3 hitter.
Chavez should not play over A-Rod.
Nunez should be playing. Fuck, I’d take Cody Ransom.
jeter probably out for the season
I hope we are all enjoying Eric Chavez.
Yankees shouldnt bother playing a 3B, just play with 8 players.
Sterling is saying Jeter might have turned his ankle
Sterling shouldn’t be playing doctor. The man can’t see anything as it is.
Girardi is an idiot for playing swisher any good outfielder catches those balls by fielder and young . And wtf did girardi pitch to Delma on young I told all you folks that swishalicious will help the tigers win when he is not hurting at the plAte he is giving runs to the tigers with his fielding I wanted cdick in right tonite but oh no the choke king had to play
Sometimes Girardi over manages with the pitchers.
Phelps is not the problem. Our offense is. Its inexcusable what we`re doing this Postseason. Aside from Jeter, Ichiro and Raul, its insane how bad this offense looks like. And it seems like every year its the same players that fail under pressure, some guys simply cannot handle pressure. Our offense is great for the regular season, where we can hit 5 solo HR`s against bad pitching. Just look how the cardinals won last night, some great ab`s, opposite field line drives and some clutch hits. Thats how you win in the postseason.
You nailed it! Just compare the stats of Detroit’s 3-6 hitters and our 3-6 hitters. That’s your ballgame, folks!
This is how the terrible offense can affect a team.
They have had chance after chance to win it after Ibanez tied it up, and failed over and over again.
Because of that, more relievers had to pitch in the game. Jeter had to play more innings on his hurt foot, and now he’s hurt a lot worse.
And to top it all off, they are going to lose the game most likely.
Besides Ibanez, this team has pretty much not shown up all postseason offensively.
And they miraculously won a series when they shouldn’t even be here.
I love how when the Yanks came back it got very quiet here, except those who don’t bitch about every single thing, then, they get down and all negative a-holes come back. Almost entertaining actually! ha
This is different from any other time, how exactly?
It’s not, just worth pointing out … again!
Like I said (and got slapped for) in the last thread:
Its as depressing as the game. Then Jeter got hurt and the game made me want to cry.
And Swisher strikes out.
Nice AB Swish, MVP.
I’m pretty sure Jeets broke his leg. It appeared to be weighted in an odd direction (a-la Buster Posey), and was hanging at an odd angle as they were walking off.
If so, you heard it here first.
Actually it looked more like an achilles popping.
SWISHER/CHAVEZ…. and we are still benching AROD, give me A MUTHAFUKING BREAK.
You turned right around on ARod in the last six hours.
Swisher is such a waste of life.
Ohh fuck Scherzer or whatever your fucking name is spelled
Swish should not play again for the Yankees.
Swisher needs to be DFA’ed and they need to recall C-Dick this is awful.
The 2012 Yankees: I love them, I fucking hate them, I love them then I fucking hate them again.
Smyly is terrible. I’m sorry. His curveball has no bite, and his fastball is straight and not very fast.
These guys have given up. It’s pathetic. And Swisher, after opening the floodgates with his pitiful defense, with the worst of them all.
Fuck you swisher seriously garbage, and plays in the field that gave up huge runs. He needs to be gone the day after the post season is over
Summary of this postseason:
Granderson = garbage
Swisher = garbage
Cano = garbage
A-Rod = garbage.
After seeing what happened to Jeter, I can’t give a flying crap about this team. Can’t move a lead off runner. Can’t play defense. Can’t hit. Whatever. We didn’t let the Orioles beat us, that’s good enough for me.
Girardi = Garbage
Just had to bunt…
and walk Young.
True, there definitely could have been a bunt there, but I’m not blaming Girardi because literally everyone SUCKS right now.
I’m OK with Swisher starting Game 2 if the lineup card reads ‘Useless’ instead of ‘Swisher’.
FUCK THE FUCKING YANKEES FOR THE MOST FUCKING DISAPPOINTING PERFORMANCE EVER. Phelps can suck on Girardi’s dick, if he isn’t already, fucker
don’t blame Phelps, he was put in a losing situation.
No he put himself in the situation by not throwing strikes. Swisher’s barrel roll was just the icing on the cake.
He gave up a walk and three hits. Who do you blame?
Girardi for not starting with DRob to start the inning.
Everyone’s always begging for Phelps to be in there. Well, this is two overtime losses in a row on his ledger.
This. 3/4s of the site wanted him to start Game 2. The game threads are always clamoring for him to come in in relief. Now its Girardi’s fault when he’s put in to start an inning and blows the game?
Its still Phelps’ fault.
I’m sorry, but he was put in the game with no runners on. Sure, we can argue he shouldn’t have been in there. But if we can’t trust him to come in a clean inning and not walk the bases loaded, why are we expecting him to ever pitch effectively? It wasn’t even that he let Cabrera/Fielder do their thing, that’s understandable. But the damage didn’t end with them.
Swishers shtick is tired.. I can’t wait for him to get overpaid elsewhere
Could Dickerson have been worse than the choke king Gardner has to play tomorrowOr we will lose again did you see that strike out by swishalicious
Yankees really fucking earned that loss.
Sorry, Raul, this home run ended up meaning jack shit. Why? Because NICK SWISHER is the worst ballplayer I have ever had the misfortune of watching in the month of October.
Bench Arod so loser like Swisher, Cano and Chavez can keep playing. Oh yea Joba with a sore elbow is far better than phelps.
Glad Chavez continues to get at bats
Two games ago we were all killing Joe for not putting Chavez in for ARod. Fact is, NO ONE IS HITTING. We can’t bench the whole team. They’re just bad right now, and might not get better.
This is probably the beginning of the end of the season.
When you have that kind of 9th inning rally, and lose the game at home, and waste all of those chances, you are in big time trouble.
The bullpen is burnt out. Jeter is probably injured and not going to play for at least a few more days.
Anyone who thinks they are in good shape right now is just delusional. They might not make it past the 3 games in Detroit unless they show up, and NOW.
They’re not. So don’t get filled of hate when they eventually lose.
Stop commenting on my posts
You know Matt, I generally haven’t liked reading what you’ve had to say, but that’s genuinely the best response anyone has ever had when Greg bothers them.
No hate, no rudeness, and really, really funny.
Let’s have a do-over and start this game again.
I love Swisher, but he has to go. He hits like an NL pitcher in the postseason.
the yanks will get swept.
in 10 minutes in the corner of the locker room in the fetal position will be; cano, aroid, swisher, and grandy… 4 total losers.
swisher might be approaching arod is being a total loser. actually I am wrong swisher is the biggest loser on the team. his postseason stats are really hard to do, even if you try to get out to be as inept as him is hard to do.
this is even a worse loss if they just would have lost in 9…
toast, they are done., this team of softies will never comeback in this series..
the yare counting on a 38 yr old ss who just left the series, a 38 year old left fielder and a 40 year old dh to carry a team, impossible to do……..
they are toast…detroit is tougher and there top players are way way better. young a rascist hack has killed them 2 years in a row..
Swisher is useless at this point, beyond an occasional walk, when it matters (NOW!!!) he’s terrible . I’m done with him, that route was awful and it indirectly led to Jeter being hurt.
swisher should have caught that ball but he wet his pants for a change.
this team is old…..they are what they are. a bully team…as posted they have hit 2 guys in 6 games. valverdee and johnson and mainly from ibanez….. this is no longer a 16 inning trend this is out and out gag job…..
baseball hurts sometimes
stinks to waste such a great comeback
Jeter’s probably gone for the duration. So Joe should just take a twirl on the binder and bench KRoid-less, Kranderson and Nick-I suck in right too- Swisher. Put Chavez, Gardner in there for Alex and Curtis, and anyone’s grandmother in for Granderson.
** anyone’s grandmother in for Swisher
I see you chose to ignore Cano who has been worst than all of them. Grandy at least drew a late inning walk which lead to the winning run on base. Nick is swinging out of his ass on every pitch.
So that gets us an IF of Tex, Nix, Nunez, Chavez with an OF of Ibanez, Gardner, and Ichiro.
Folks remember you could have had Carlos Beltran instead of swisher the choke king I wanna cry
Maybe it was just me but did anyone else notice Jeter grimacing earlier in the game? I can’t remember what inning it was but I think he was fielding a grounder hit by Cabrera and it looked like he was in some discomfort.
no way jeter plays again this season, he has either a broken leg or broken ankle..
nunez will be on the roster tommorrow..
this team is toast….the only guy with balls on the team just got hurt…..
Disheartening loss, but issues that have existed all season still plague us, so not totally unexpected. Nice ninth inning rally, but you can’t expect to win games when you load the bases 3 times and come up empty.
Wow, Ibanez’s homer seems like a lifetime ago now.
What was Girardi doing letting Phelps face Cabrera and Fielder? I know D-Rob’s pitched a lot, but you have to leave him in for them in a big spot.
I’m not going to get into the usual suspects in the lineup, since their failures aren’t new and have been well-chronicled.
ARod> Swisher + Cano right now. It’s that bad.
couldn’t get over the hump. what david cone said should be the team mooto.
they cannot get over the hump all year. ibanez has saved there ass 3 games in playoffs already..
turn out the lights the party is over…
I am wrong Cano will save them he is a difference maker, he is an elite player just ask his fandom……..
cano is a tease….boras will try to seel some snake oil with his contract and with the crewcut steinbrenner moron you nevver know. he may get a 8 year $20 mill deal..
fractured ankle for Jete according to Joe
Fock, see everyone next year
holy shit, Jeter is out for the year, series over, now we have only 1 hitter that is actually hitting in Ichiro in the starting lineup.
Anyone watching the postgame?? Derek fractured his ankle. He’s out for the rest of the year. It’ll be a 3 month recovery.
Jeter with the fracture, holy fucking sucking!
I understand Arod is the lighting rod for the media and all angry fans, but the fact that he keeps getting replaced by 0 for the playoffs Chavez is getting ridiculous. I know we’re grasping at straws here, but Arod hit …the ball…kind of hard???…in that first at bat…just to a bad spot. Even still, His upside is better than Chavez’s despite the lefty righty matchups. Somehow there’s no need to replace Swisher, Granderson or Cano. Not that they should. But now that Raul is in the lineup every night and should continue to be, there’s no need to pinch hit for Arod for the sake of pinch hitting him. It serves no purpose at this point. Whether the;y like it or not, Arod will need to hit for this team to get by the Tigers…Especially with Jeter probably out. He’s not gonna break out of it by sitting on the bench
take the Arod poster down. get real he sucks…
sure swisher sucks also and granderson does to but chavez is a legit player… ajax robbed him of a double. arod has not hit the ball like that in 3 weeks or more…
is that a suprise. they carried a guy off who could not put any weight on his ankle…
jeters injury is not suprising….
play nunez and some of the 2nd tier guys… fuck swisher.. gardy got a AB tonight, fuck swisher……
This was a mega loss. No other way to describe it. The usual suspects are the culprits. Blah blah blah. Still would like to know why Girardi pulled DRob though. It’s one of those nagging, why am I here, what’s the meaning of life questions. Fuck you Joe. And especially our grinning chokester Nick Swisher. Take your bloated salary somewhere else.
No one is asking in the post game. All Jeter.
You can thank the offense for Jeter’s injury.
If they had done their job this postseason, he would not have had to play so many innings in the field on his bad foot and probably would not have been as susceptible to this kind of injury.
When you drag games out like this team does by not hitting, you wear down the rest of your team. The bullpen was wiped out at the end of September and they almost didn’t win the East.
there offense has been the culprit all season and I say that knowing they were 2nd in runs scored in the AL…
2d in runs scored is great, it gets you 95 wins. The frustrating RISPFAIL notwithstanding. The problem is the post season bedshitting. Swish Granderson and ARod are useless and Cano has left for the DR already. They’ve been shit since 2009. Time to retoool…get rid of the tools.
Someone here said it earlier. This game would’ve been done in 9 innings if Jim Leyland had pulled Valverde after Teixiera got on base. The next batter was Ibanez and he tied the game. Its obvious that Valverde’s arm is done for the season. I also would’ve taken that 4-0 loss instead of losing the Captain of our team.
yanks 3 for 13 with RISP tigers 6 for 15, not a shocker…..
that is the Yankees……
jeter is 38, the crutch is going away sooner or later…
let’s hear swisher talk after the game… I want to hear what happened on the play he fucked up…
“Lost it in the lights, bro. Bad luck, man.”
Congrats Girardi, you just lost all the credit from the Orioles Series!
Extremely dumb move to put Phelps against Cabrera and Prince.
It’s gonna go down in history as one of the most mysterious events of all time. Maybe he just misread the binder?
Can the proclaimers of Girardi’s brilliance explain why he took out DRob to let a rookie face the heart of the Tiger’s order?
i have no clue and the stute media did not ask him to explain.
the only possible explanation is if drob goes 2 they lost him for tommorrow and the yare using kuroda on 3 days rest but when you come back from 4 to 0 in the 9th to worry about tommorrow is curious to me…
Right. You win TODAY, especially after the way they came back. And since DRob was dealing. And since Fat man and the Drunk can actually hit a little. Girardi really screwed this one up.
jeter still tried to make a play by tossing the ball to Cano while he was in agony.
can you see cano ever doing that????
jeter is 38, he is not invisible. counting on jeter 38, ichiro 38, and ibanez at 40 and a bench player to carry a team is a impossibility……
michael kay talking about arod hitting a ball on the screws… it was a ground ball to short……
I feel like I just saw Mantle step in a centerfield sprinkler hole.
you may have. the guy is 38……
Hope they lose some serious weight in the off season and start thinking about taking some risks with younger talent. We’ve had enough frustrating years of them trying to buy the WS. Time to do it right.
adios all the older guys end the story…
thsi team offensivly is a softball team.
for sure guys who are gone and $ off the books are; swisher at $14 mill., andruw jones less then $2 mill, stewart he sucks, trade grandy with 1 year left on his deal and ichiro will be gone… that is 3 starters from the roster…..
gardner has to play….the need to get younger more athletic players for sure……….
they must bite the bullet like the red sox and get younger and cheaper no matter what.
that is why yu try to win now, no 1 knows the future…they could be in the wilderness for years with their lack of offensive young talent and horrible contracts for shitty players…..
arod would get a $4 mill 1 year deal next year if he was not under contract…laugh it is true… tex would get 3 yr $7 mill per.
notice in the 9th tex got lucky with the walk he had the whole left side to get a single/bunt but he refused to do it.. he again drives in no runners. he is a leadoff type hitter with no speed at all…
he needs to drive the ball on occasion..
the utter ineptness of the offense is staggering look at the #’s… cannot make them up…
I agree and give you a lot of credit for having the stones to say it here. You will no doubt be vilified as a Yankee-hating troll for telling the truth about the team. I am a Yankee fan from the lean years of the 60′s and have been through some real downs with the Bombers. But the difference here is that our squad now are paid way too much to suck this bad. Something is wrong. Scouting, not enough attention to sabermetrics, going for the quick fix to satisfy the fans. I don’t know. But the current method of putting a team together clearly is not working. 95 wins is great but not worth the price, if every year they choke in the playoffs.
I strongly disagree. Tex is definitley overpaid but he’s a beast defensively and he’s still pretty productive at the plate. A-Rod’s contract is a joke but he’s still about average in the regular season so he’d get more than 4 mill. How is tex a lead off hitter? Why? B/C he hasn’t hit for much power so far? I blame it’s really Cano, Granderson, Swisher and A-rod. Granderson is a mess and it sucks because he’s pretty much killed all of his trade value. I really think ownership should ditch the “Plan” and remember that they’re not the A’s they’re the Yankees.
I agree that Tex is a great first baseman, but his offensive numbers are in decline, too much so for the long contract he has with the Yankees. Cano is worth keeping even though his lack of hustle and streakiness are maddening. He has the possibility of becoming a superstar. And he’s under 30. The rest of your post makes my argument so it’s OK with me!
