  • Kevin G.

    WooHoo!!!! Spillover threads return!!!!!

  • forensic

    Cal says: Nate knew it.

    Um, I think tossing the bat and reaching down to take off his shin pad says he clearly didn’t know it.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      all acting. trying to get the call.

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

    I love spillover threads.

    • jjyank

      Nothing reminds you of October baseball like spillover threads.

  • Get Phelps Up

    I love how TBS has gone to a first name only basis to refer to all Orioles players.

    • The Real Greg

      I’ve heard them say Alex and Robbie too.

      • forensic

        It’s stupid with either team.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Abomb please

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Hammel’s been wild. 3rd time through the order. Finish him.

  • Cy Pettitte

    stop cheering when Hammel comes up and in at their heads, stupid fans.

  • Total Dominication

    Cheering when a guy almost gets hit in the head? Stay classy O’s fans.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Wow. O’s fans are douches. Second time they cheered for a pitch like that.

  • JLC 776

    Okay, third time through, good swings in the last two innings… if the Yankees don’t score in this inning, I’m punching myself in the testicles.

    Yup.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Nothing against you, but the idea that somebody would be doing that makes me not want the yankees to score.

      • jjyank

        Wait…you want him to punch himself in the balls?

        • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

          yes.

        • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          Absolutely. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen it done and it is hysterical!

        • MannyGeee

          more than ive ever wanted anything since I was a virgin, my friend

        • jjyank

          Wow, you guys are mean. I couldn’t bring myself to wish that pain on another human. Not even a Red Sox fan.

          • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

            if it was someone else doing it to him, it’s one thing. the fact that he wants to do it himself over a baseball inning outcome, yeah, sure.

            • jjyank

              Heh. Fair enough.

            • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

              Yeah, this.

    • MannyGeee

      now I am almost cheering for a popout, and praying that you have a youtube account and a webcam

  • Brian S.

    Let’s go A-Rod

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Alex just missing

  • Hall and Nokes

    Alex is what now, 42? 43?

  • Joe

    These balls are right down the middle.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Cano is just swinging and swinging.

    Hopefully he hits something hard.

  • forensic

    Ugh, Cano’s in ‘swing at every pitch that leaves the pitcher’s hand’ mode.

  • Brian S.

    Last two at-bats Robbie has swung at like eight consecutive pitches outside of the zone.

    • G

      I love Robbie and all but I’m having a heart attack watching him do this…

  • Anthony

    We need the runs now before we get to their bullpen.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    ARod is just plain awful. Joe doesn’t have the stones to sit him

    • Brian S.

      He’s the only one working counts. Not sure what game you are watching.

    • Get Phelps Up

      Yeah because Jayson Nix is such a better option…

      • jjyank

        I’m guessing he’s thinking Chavez…but yeah. Are we seriously going to blame a manager for not sitting A-Rod? Is there a single manager in all of baseball that would do that? DO NO MANAGERS HAVE ANY STONES???

        *shrug*

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

    Robbie is swinging at absolutely everything tonight.

  • The Real Greg

    Again, either Hammel has some late life on his fastball or his delivery is deceiving because it seems everybody is late on his fastball.

  • JLC 776

    Very disappointed in Robbie. I’ve been worried all week the break would break him. Please prove me wrong next AB….

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Good to see Robbie trying to get himself out….smfh.

  • MannyGeee

    garbage time is all the time in October!

  • The Real Greg

    And that’s it for Hammel.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Swish can’t do anything in the post season

    Swisher: okay I’ll just get on the first 3 times I come up this year.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Tex as well, 2-3.

    • Joe

      Risp. Then post

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        My nuts. Suck them.

        • Joe

          Then what will the homeless man do for change.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Lets hammer them now

  • Adam

    Is really early, I know…but any desire to run Gardner for Swisher here?

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

      There are two outs and Swisher is guaranteed to bat again. No chance.

    • Brian S.

      Not with two outs.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      no way. robbie won’t see another pitch all game.

  • forensic

    Very very disappointing performance by the offense against Hammel. Now they have to do it against their very good bullpen. Kinda sucks…

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

      Bailed him out with the two baserunning mistakes.

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        You’d think they know about weiters arm and tex should know he’s slow, posada slow.

      • forensic

        Big time. Both blew chances to score more easily with outs. Just can’t do that against a good team.

  • MannyGeee

    Dear Tex & Grandy: Time to be a boss against LHP again…

    Regards-

    JLC 776’s testicles

    • JLC 776

      My testicles appreciate the vote of support.

  • Alkaline

    Well, 2 on. Let’s go. One more hit.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Granderson this is your moment

  • Monterowasdinero

    When did ARod hit HR # 17 this year?

    He.has.no.power.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Why did they bring in a sidewinding LHP against Tex?

    • Ethan

      Because Tex is 0 for 6 against him. SSS.

      • Ethan

        was*

  • Brian S.

    I thought Mastuz was their LOOGY?

  • Jack

    Fuck.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    I think it might be time to break out the scotch.

  • Adam

    YOu have got to be effin kidding me.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Stupid odd ballpark configuration.

  • The Real Greg

    See what I mean? Luck

    • Tom

      It was a routine flyball – how in the hell is that luck?

      Because it didn’t go foul?

      • Adam

        He turned his head and the ball found his glove somehow.

      • Ethan

        It did go right where there was a weird cutout in the seats.

      • The Real Greg

        Because he caught it without looking at it. Watch the replay. He didn’t even see the ball go into his glove.

      • MannyGeee

        because it was caught in a little nook that does not exist in nature. or in any other park in baseball

  • Pete

    Are.

    You.

    Serious?

  • Ethan

    Fuck you camden yards

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Thats gone in our bandbox stadium

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

    As the ball disappears from view, where the wall angle changes…

    Can’t make this shit up.

  • Cy Pettitte

    I hate that corner, wtf is that random cutout? seems like every series they play one lands there perfectly for the Orioles.

    • Tom Q

      I was going to say, I’ve never seen foul ground so weirdly placed, and they get a key out from it.

  • MannyGeee

    that sucked. why would they make that little closet nook in play? shitty

  • Adam

    He literally wasn’t even looking.

  • Cocolicious

    Fucking inferior teams catching all the breaks

  • AnthonyD

    Literally doing it w/ their eyes closed

  • The Real Greg

    Everything’s going their way. You can’t stop luck or destiny

  • JLC 776

    At least I’ve been drinking since 6pm…

  • Dan

    Seems like Murphy’s Law against the Yanks tonight.

  • David N

    So it’s going to one of these stress-filled games, I guess….

    • Brian S.

      It’s been like this all game.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Cano, Robbie, and A-Rod have yet to show up.

    Swish and Tex, outside of his base running mistake, have.

    This is a huge inning for CC.

    • The Real Greg

      ARod scored a run and has worked good at bats. He showed up. Cano hasn’t

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

        Glad to see we’ve waited 2.5 times through the order to determine who has and who hasn’t shown up.

        • MannyGeee

          typically determined blindly in the 1st. so this is good!

        • Brian S.

          God dammit Nunez!

          • Brian S.

            This wasn’t supposed to be a reply.

    • forensic

      Cano’s been so bad he gets called out twice? ;-)

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Greg may be right. We’re not getting many breaks ….yet. But ARod still sucks. I’d like to see Chavez get a shot

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      “Greg may be right.” Stopped reading.

  • The Real Greg

    See he caught it without looking at it.

  • MannyGeee

    that is just an insane little cubby. just nuts

  • MannyGeee

    silver lining alert… although the bats went to sleep after the 1st inning, CC is sitting on 67 pitches through 6.1. Thats pretty awesome

  • Tom

    No fastballs here CC (at least in the zone)

  • MannyGeee

    i could almost feel the hanging slider before it got thrown

  • The Real Greg

    There’s another hit off the end of the bat.

    • Chilango Adoptivo

      Greg I think we got it. God hates the Yankees, the universe is statistically motivated to screw us out of our just WS rings. Or maybe…it’s baseball with all its weird, SSS statistical anomalies and ups and downs. Enough already.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    God dammit Jeter.

  • jjyank

    God damn it.

  • The Real Greg

    And a funny hop.

    Come on guys, this is too obvious

  • MannyGeee

    Jeter. No range.

    oh wait

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

    Jeter has no range, but he’s surehanded.

    And when he’s doing that, he’s completely worthless out there.

  • Adam

    Man, gotta charge that.

  • forensic

    Geez Jeter, if you’re not going to get to anything more than 6 inches away from you, at least make the plays on the ones hit right to you.

  • Get Phelps Up

    No closeup of that?

  • Pat D

    Shoulda gone to first, Cap’n.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Micheal Kay: “Jeter might not have the best range, but he never makes a mistake on a ball hit to him”

    I can hear it in my head.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      It is a rarity. That pop up he dropped, wasn’t that the only one in his career?

    • SammySosasBleachingCream

      He makes at least 5 very simple, obvious errors per year. On easy plays hit right at him. He also makes the occasional mistake on the basepaths.
      Jeter’s good enough without the sainthood treatment.

  • MannyGeee

    thank god. that was getting sticky

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    CC is beast.

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

    But no harm done.

    Score some fucking runs, already.

  • Pete

    Anyone else waiting for Cal to whip off his headphones and start outright rooting…?

    • Cy Pettitte

      he’s probably been waving an orange towel the entire game

  • Adam

    Wow, got away with a hanger there.

    PS, for anyone expecting an easy series, these two teams have been so tight against each other year, it seems logical that we’ll have a tight one.

  • jjyank

    Thanks, CC. The Jeter play only cost him one more pitch, so you are forgiven. Now, how about some mother fucking runs on this mother fucking plane game?

  • Cy Pettitte

    76 pitches through 6. score some runs so CC can lock this thing down please.

  • Ethan

    Alright let’s put up some runs!

  • Karl Krawfid

    Step it up Yankee offense.

    CC has been pitching his ass of for you.

    • MannyGeee

      and thats gotta be alot of pitching, because… well, you know….

  • VT Yankee Fan

    CC is pitching a hell of a game. If thay had scored a few more we’d be able to appreciate it.

  • MannyGeee

    crooked # plz

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    damn, yall got on jetes quick. it happens.

  • Brian S.

    Russ going deep calling it.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Come on blackhole get a hit

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      blackhole sun, won’t ya come, wash away the pain, blackhole sun, blackhole sun…..

      • RkyMtnYank

        I hear Soundgarden is coming out with a new album, should be awesome after all this time. :)

        • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

          Oh horrible, after all this time…I’ll reserve judgement till i hear.

          • RkyMtnYank

            Yep, can’t be any worse than Audioslave though. Be better if Rage were putting out something new!

  • The Real Greg

    If they pinch hit for Ibanez, they’ll bring in O’day to face the right handed hitter

    • Brian S.

      Then you PH Gardner

      • Brian S.

        Er, Chavez

      • The Real Greg

        I don’t trust Gardner’s bat. I trust his speed and defense

  • Adam

    Wow, excellent at bat.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Ibanez bunt? crazy?

  • James A

    TBS announcement: Crew not unbalanced enough, John Smoltz will be replaced starting tomorrow with –
    http://www.masnsports.com/imag.....e-Bird.jpg

  • MannyGeee

    Patton has 15 pitches through .2IP, CC has 72 through 6.

  • Tom

    Really?

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      Did you really expect different from Girardi?

      • Tom

        Let a man dream…

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    …Raul is hitting for himself?Q

  • Effthisnoise

    Great ab by martin

  • jjyank

    Patton’s control seems to be off. He missed the spots Weiters set up for on almost every pitch in the Martin AB. Please, let’s make him pay.

  • Total Dominication

    Pinch hit Nunez!

  • Ethan

    Why do they look at Buck every time there’s semi-questionable play but they never look at girardi.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Why ibanez here? No nunez

  • Dan

    Why is ibanez hitting right now?

    • Dan in Athens

      O’Day was ready. Binder said Ibanez v. lefty was better than Nunez v. the righty. Binder says bunt now. The Binder is frustrating.

  • The Real Greg

    Will all of you asking look at my post. Thay had O’Day warming

    • Tom

      Yankees also have some guy named Chavez

  • MannyGeee

    wow, hear a pin drop in Camden now, huh

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    IBANEZ AHHHH! STOP IT. WTF.

  • Brian S.

    Fucking swinging at ball four Ibanez…

    • Brian S.

      Way to rebound.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Ugghh…take the walk.

    • Tom

      Apparently just wanted to run up his pitch count up before walking

  • Cy Pettitte

    good job Raul

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    You’re forgiven.

    • Ethan

      Hindsight’s pretty nice huh

  • The Real Greg

    And in the end, the lefty walked him

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

    Wow. Excellent PA from Raul, especially against a LHP.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Well that’s good. Now Jeter’s going to bunt though…

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Jeter bunt.

  • Joe

    Small ball. DO IT.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Raul working this 6 ball walk, that’s impressive.

  • Adam

    Two great at bats. For the complaints here on the Yanks’ hitting tonight, their approach has actually been great. The hits will come.

  • Dan in Athens

    The Binder says to bunt.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Great walks there by both Martin coming back from 0-2 and Raul vs the lefty. Jeter should bunt. Let Ichiro put the ball in play vs the righty, O’Day. You don’t want Jete hitting into a DP.

  • Kevin G.

    Jeter’s going to bunt… and everybody is going to absolutely fli[ their shit

    • Kevin G.

      *flip

  • Jonathan

    lucked out on that one ladies and gentlemen. I definitely bunt the king of GIDP’s here this late in a playoff game. Especially with a righty probably coming in.

  • forensic

    Is this tailormade for a Jeter ‘on his own’ bunt or what? Time to give away an out.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      I think Girardi will call it.

    • forensic

      On second thought, maybe it’s not such a bad idea at this point in the game. My bad, jumped the gun a bit.

      Would be cool if they did walk Ichiro and A-Rod somehow played the hero.

  • Total Dominication

    If Jeter tries to bunt, I will drive down to Baltimore and beat him.

  • The Real Greg

    Jeter bunts here and leaves it up to Ichiro. I wonder if Buck will bring in Matusz to face Ichiro or let O’Day do it.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      I wonder if they’d IBB Ichiro and leave it up to ARod.

  • JLC 776

    Stop hating on Raul. Unless the O’s literally bring in Harry Potter, the guy has saved the season twice in the last couple of weeks.

  • Patrick

    This announcing teams so blatantly angling their commentary in favor of the Orioles. It’s infuriating.

  • James A

    Not a sacrifice proponent, but Jeter better be laying one down. Would it be worth it to pinch run Nunez for Ibanez if he gets to second, two runs would be a lot better than one?

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Jeter should bunt here vs the righty. Get that winning run to 3rd. We’re getting late enough in the game that our pen is set up if CC can give us one more. Ichiro can put the ball in play vs O’Day.

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

    Please no GIDJ here, please.

  • MannyGeee

    are those people in the Dish Hopper Commercials somebody? I feel like they want me to laugh, but I am not sure if I am missing an inside joke or if its just a bunch of jackoffs with Providence accents.

  • Joe

    For the love of god please No GIDP

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Would be completely okay with Jeter bunting.

  • Tom

    Balk… he has to stop.

    • Tom

      Eh.. maybe it’s just his delivery making him look like he’s moving the whole time

  • jay

    good luck bunting that delivery

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Aubrey oday pitching?

  • Joe

    Cmon

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    That was fucking awful Captain.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Wow Derek…

  • forensic

    Pulls back the bunt on the pitch down the middle then goes after one 2 feet outside… Terrible, but lucky he got it down with 2 strikes.

  • Joe

    Ballsy

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Capt gettin it done

  • The Real Greg

    Derek has cajones to bunt with two strikes

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

    Ballsy decision by Jeter there.

    Get these runs home.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Good job w 2 strikes!

  • Effthisnoise

    Wow, gutsy

  • MannyGeee

    sweet 2 strike bunt. hot damn

  • Dan in Athens

    Let’s see if Buck goes big swinging dick and does the right thing by walking Ichiro and setting up his righty ground baller for a DP v. ARod.

  • Jonathan

    how the fuck did he make it that close of a play when he had to carry his giant balls down the line in a wheelbarrow?

    • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

      Ha.

    • MannyGeee

      when you got Derek Jeter money, you just get wheels or roller skates installed on them thangs.

  • Total Dominication

    Did Derek Jeter just bunt with 2 strikes? The guy who’s leading MLB in hits by a mile?

    • whozat

      That was an all-around awful at bat. Unless he knows that he has NO idea what’s coming out of O’Day’s hand.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    strike zone against lefties is getting wider and wider.

  • forensic

    Ok Ichiro and/or A-Rod. Gotta get the job done here!

  • Tom

    I’m amazed Machado was actually in on that with 2 strikes – off the bat I thought it was a single.

  • The horseshoe up Buck Showalters Ass

    Thats a strike ?

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Wow. Not sure what to think about that at bat.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Ichiro!

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Cap’n!

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Plate them

  • Joe

    Do ichiro we all know what arod will do

  • Athenian

    The dreaded RISP….

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Fuck.

  • whozat

    FFFUUUU

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

    Yay for not getting the job done.

    Unreal.

  • Preston

    Two on, no outs. Let’s have one of the all time greatest players bunt. GENIUS!!! FML!

  • Cy Pettitte

    hit hard but right at someone. of course.

  • The Real Greg

    And of course, hit RIGHT AT THE SECOND BASEMAN

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    For fuck’s sake.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Even when he’s on base he sucks.

  • forensic

    Damnit Ichiro!

    And slide away from the catcher Martin, not toward him.

  • Ethan

    COME ON !!!!!

  • Ivan

    That Bunt by Jeter sure helped..smh…

  • MannyGeee

    wow… right at Andino. woulda been nice if Russell slid under that tag though

  • Joe

    Oh. Well nice try on to the 8th

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    HOW MANY FUCKING TIMES ARE WE GOING TO DO THAT!!! Make sure the ball is THROUGH!!! Martin is LOOKING at the second baseman.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      That’s a called play. Contact play.

    • jay

      He was going on contact. It didn’t matter where the ball was hit as long as it was hit on the ground he was supposed to run.

    • whozat

      He was going on contact. THat was the play. What are you going to do?

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        Stop calling the contact play. That’s at least the third time it’s bit us in the ass.

  • Tom

    Bad slide by Martin there. (almost looked like he was thinking about running him over)

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    out by s mile. Yanks running themsleves out of the gsme.Fuck this

  • Kevin G.

    Alright ARod, this is where you earn your pinstripes… again

  • Effthisnoise

    Wow for a second i almost forgot i was watching the yanks

  • The Real Greg

    I mean how obvious is this people?

  • forensic

    Come on A-Rod!!! Be the hero!

  • Athenian

    Even in the playoffs. RISP fail. Another inning of no runs.

  • Get Phelps Up

    No swing there…

  • MannyGeee

    Angel Hernandez can suck a dick

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Fucking Hernandez with that shit eating smirk

  • Jonathan

    we need an O’s lucky dink here

  • MannyGeee

    A Rod is praying for that walk.

  • Joe

    You just know these orange clowns will score with some shitty bloops.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Just fucking awful.

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

    That inning was a microcosm of both teams’ seasons.

    Fuck.

  • Total Dominication

    Fucking bunts.

  • jm

    we’re the veteran team that’s been here a million times right? I couldn’t tell by the baserunning.

  • MannyGeee

    balls.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Bunch of unlucky idiots.

    • MannyGeee

      2004.

  • forensic

    Terrible AB, terrible inning, terrible offensive performance all game basically.

  • The Real Greg

    Break after break has gone their way tonight. It’s so obvious.

  • Ivan

    Dat sux

  • jjyank

    Fuck that inning. And if I EVER hear about a pitcher’s “frisbee” ever again, I will kill someone.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      +100000000000000000000000000

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        yes, that means I will kill a google people if I ever hear about a pitcher’s “frisbee” again.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      get your gun ready cause we got at least 2 more games against these birds.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Pathetic. The Orioles have walked man after man and they only have 2 runs to show for it. Get a clutch hit.

  • whozat

    I don’t know why I even thought they might score.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      I know. they yanks never score any runs. like ever. oh wait…

  • Jonathan

    this is just digusting

  • Karl Krawfid

    Fucking choke.

  • Electric nunez

    Keep grinding CC

  • ARod

    Sorry guys. I’ll get a hit next time. I promise.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Yeah let’d keep hitting ARod 3rd.

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

    Three pretty terrible at-bats by the vets there.

  • Effthisnoise

    The rispf will not hold up in the playoffs, esp with the oriols record in close and extra inning games.

  • Matt

    This game would be pretty much over if not for the inability of this team to do the simplest things on offense.

    Inexcusable baserunning blunders, the inability to hit a lazy fly ball. It’s the same story almost every night with this team.

    Unless they hit home run after home run, they simply cannot get these easy runs home. It’s just stunning.

    • Adam

      Dude, Ichiro hit a bullet that found a glove. It happens.

  • Ethan

    Get AROD the fuck out of the lineup. I want Chavez!

  • Captain Gift Basket

    Choke jobs.

  • The Real Greg

    The baseball gods love the Orioles this year. If this game and all of the machinations in don’t scream that at you, I don’t know what your watching.

    • Athenian

      Um baseball Gods have nothing to do with the ineptness of this team when runners are in scoring position. It is just extreme failure by over hyped and over paid players who cannot execute the simplest of tasks.

    • Tom

      That’s not the game screaming at you, it’s the voice in your head.

      Up the dosage.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      The belief in (baseball) gods is silly.

  • Athenian

    My God! Fucking pathetic.

  • dalelama

    Old Purple Lips doing what he does best—choking in the clutch.

    • Get Phelps Up

      I’m sure you were thrilled when he struck out.

      • forensic

        He’s had that typed in all night, just waiting for the time when he could finally hit ‘submit’.

        • dalelama

          The truth is the truth.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      I get that people don’t like sucking but why the fuck do people only blame ARod? The real problem is everyone.

      • dalelama

        Because Arod has made a career of it, cheats, and gets paid $25M per year.

  • Knoxvillain

    Still can’t get a hit when they need to. The season was over before it started.

  • JLC 776

    Back to the heart of the lineup having none.

  • Get Phelps Up

    11 baserunners and 2 runs…smh.

  • Monterowasdinero

    Remember everyone-ARod has ended our last two seasons with a K.

    He sucks.

    Bat him 3rd?

    Change is hard.

    • Pete

      Thanks for that depressing reminder.

  • Knoxvillain

    Girardi needs to be fired if he bats A-Rod third again tomorrow. I’d fire his ass right before the game. I hate him more and more everyday.

    • bring buck back

      Finally, someone who agrees with me.

  • DZ

    The only team that could fuck up 2nd and 3rd with one out with 2-3-4 coming up is the 2012 yankees

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    lew ford, robert andino, nate mclouth, might as well be ruth, williams and bonds

  • marc

    Thinks it time to bat arod in the 7th 8th or even 9th spot….. this guy comes up to plate with free rbis and he chokes everytime

  • The Real Greg

    Next year, the Yankees need to have more average hitters who can put the ball in the play. They also need more speed.

    • Karl Krawfid

      Been saying that all year and you would complain about it.

      • The Real Greg

        I’ve been saying that 2009 was the last hurrah with this cast for the last 2 years.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        No one complains they just use the “but hitting t3h hrs is bad” meme.

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

      I thought Ichiro was supposed to do that?

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Well he did for a month.

      • The Real Greg

        He did.

        And he hit it right at somebody. Something the Yankees have been doing an awful lot tonight.

        • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

          they can’t control where the ball goes. yes, it’s annoying, but they can’t guide the ball.

          • dalelama

            Good hitters can control where the balls go.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Don’t let this get to extras.

  • Rob G

    Arod is an automatic out – Girardi needs to move him down in the order

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

      He reached base before and scored the tying run.

      • MannyGeee

        Dear Mr Editor in Chief:

        please dont ruin the narrative.

        Sincerely, the Bridge Jumpers

      • Chilango Adoptivo

        OK so he’s only an 8 in 10 probable out. I still say give Chavez a shot.

  • MannyGeee

    Breaking news from Baltimore, some skank just made out with the Oriole mascot.

    • thekid

      Best thing to happen all game…

  • Effthisnoise

    And here comes the bottom of the line up, goodbye tie

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    And we’ve been saying it all season, come October you won’t hit 4 solo HRs off quality pitching. You have to find other ways to score. That includes sound baserunning and clutch hitting with RISP. They’ve had neither.

    • Adam

      Really the only bad baserunning play was Ichiro’s dumb steal attempt.

      • forensic

        Forgetting about Tex?

        • RkyMtnYank

          Nope, that wasn’t a bad play on Tex’s part.

          • forensic

            He jogged down to first, then tried to stretch on leg against a guy with a huge arm. It was terrible, regardless of what you think Swisher should have or shouldn’t have done.

            • forensic

              *stretch on one leg

            • RkyMtnYank

              Sorry, I disagree, if Swisher is scoring there is no play at second at all, so no issue. I never saw him jogging to first so if that was the case then I would agree with you.

    • MannyGeee

      let me know when the quality pitchers get here… Jason Hammel and Darren O’Day arent exactly Schilling and Randy Johnson

      • JobaWockeeZ

        Then they should be scoring more than 2 runs to make this issue irrelevant.

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        If you hadn’t noticed, before hammels got injured, we was pitched pretty damn well.

    • 28 this year

      And you’re gonna have an even harder time trying to string together 3-4 hits for runs rather than turning on one mistake.

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

      Tell that to the Reds.

    • RkyMtnYank

      Except we weren’t facing a quality pitcher.

    • ArchStanton

      Horse shit call.

  • pistol pete

    How the fuck many games are we going to sit around and watch our 36 yr old players past their prime get at bats in front of Cano who sat in the on deck circle with his finger up his ass while our overpaid past their prime all stars fuck the game up. ARod looked like a rank amateur with that at bat and I hate our top hitter all yr bunting leaving a big inning to a singles hitter and another who’s does fucking nothing all year with his bloated 27m salary, Girardi sucks. let Cano hit third.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Nobody’s making you watch. I’m sure your remote is on the arm of your chair, right next to the list of players the yankees should trade for as well as the line up card you fill out every game.

    • Monterowasdinero

      Been saying this all year. Best hitter must bat in the first inning. No way ARod should get more ab’s in a game than Cano.

      He can strike out to end a game dammit!

  • CS Yankee

    Looks like we’re gonna need 9 innings from CC tonight.

  • MannyGeee

    wow, when did we get to Boston with the Yankees Suck chant? bunch of unoriginal cunts

  • Total Dominication

    I am not prepared for this sort of anarchy.

  • Sdjohn

    It must be postseason. You know the yanks can’t hit HR’s in the playoffs so therefore we don’t score. We never hit with RISP so that shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

  • jm

    who’s got a final score prediction?

    • 28 this year

      4-2 Yanks

      • TJF

        Looks like one of those 3-2 Orioles walk offs

    • Hall and Nokes

      4-3 Orioles (17 inn)

      • MannyGeee

        CC goes 14 innings tonight, book it

    • forensic

      4-3 O’s.

  • marc

    Joe use the bench you have guys that can hit on the bench

  • Tony

    With all the panic in here, you’d think the O’s would be up by 10

    • JLC 776

      Been the trend for most of the last two months.

  • Tom

    TBS is really all in on the Lew Ford x-factor storyline.

    Can Selig change the rules so he can hit three times this inning?

  • pistol pete

    All fucking year can’t hit with runners in scoring position so Girardi gives up a out and leaves only 2 shots instead of three chances to get a hit with a 315 clutch hitter the one bunting, I don’t get it.

    • Adam

      Yes, and if Jeter hit into a double play, I am sure you would have had a rational reaction as well.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Am I seriously the only person who had a problem with the contact play w/ Ichiro up?

    • The Real Greg

      Yes. Ichiro most times puts the ball in play. The problem was that he hit it right at somebody. Which is what?

      BAD LUCK

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        If he makes contact, make sure it’s not DIRECTLY AT SOMEBODY then take off for home.

        • Adam

          But that’s not the contact play. The runner leaves third on contact that isn’t a pop up.

          • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            Im saying that is what I would have done INSTEAD of the contact play.

            • Adam

              Right, which I get. BUt I think there is an argument to be made for both.

    • Adam

      Eh. I mean sure Martin isn’t a speedster. But you do force the defense to make a tough play. Worst case scenario still ended up with two outs and a runner in scoring position.

    • JobaWockeeZ

      No, it’s not just you.

    • jjyank

      It didn’t work out, but if that ball took one more hop, or was a couple of feet on either side of Andino, Martin might score. I get the contact play. We’re certainly entering that area of the game.

    • Eddard reboot v.1.0

      Yeah, you have to go on contact there and force them to make the throw. A foot to the right or left or a bad throw to home and it’s a run. There’s still going to be 2 outs if the runner doesn’t go home, it’d just be 2nd and 3rd instead of 1st and 3rd. Not really a big deal since the key run is still at 3rd.

  • JLC 776

    Relax, everyone… so far this game has been exactly as predicted. Good pitching, shitty hitting.

  • Mike N

    WE ARE GONNA WIN!!!!!

  • Monterowasdinero

    I liked our chances when they didn’t walk Ichiro. He made good contact which is what is needed in the postseason. ARod is so bad that they didn’t walk Ichiro to set up a gidp since they knew ARod would strike out instead and they’d have to pitch to Cano.

  • Matt

    Fortunately CC’s pitch count is low so if he can keep this up he might be able to give us 8. Have to hope that the offense can find a way to scratch out anything against the Orioles bullpen before we have to dig too deep into our own.

  • TJF

    Biggest mistakes so far, the Tex out at second and Swisher not scoring, that still hurts

    • Monterowasdinero

      Swish is the slowest Yankee. Never happening on a hit like that. The play was in front of Tex and he should have stayed at first.

      • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

        I think tex is slower.

  • Adam

    How does that not get Andino tossed?

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

      No one gets tossed in the playoffs unless they really hang around and ask for it.

      • Adam

        Or wear eye black on the pitcher’s mound.

  • Mike N

    Struck that motherfucker OUT!

  • MannyGeee

    beauty of a pitch… Andino doing his best Youk impression

  • Dan in Athens

    CC’s starting to nibble a little too much

  • Effthisnoise

    Fuck you andino

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Tony Randazzo has called a great ballgame tonight. The Os are big babies, he’s been calling that all night.

  • Total Dominication

    Did Robert Andino just twirl in anger? That was hilarious.

  • Mike N

    These announcers are so full of shit.

    • jm

      cal is alright – other guy is a moron

      • Get Phelps Up

        They’re both terrible.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    CC’s been great tonight, can we PLEASE push across a run for him.

  • MannyGeee

    alot of bats breaking tonight, huh?

  • Matt

    If the offense had done anything with all of those baserunners, people would be praising CC for his dominant effort in which he has gotten 11 of 21 outs on the ground and 5 of the remaining 11 on strikeouts while keeping his pitch count down.

    It’s amazing how different it feels when the offense has scored only 2, as opposed to the 4 or 5 they probably should have.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Some idiot’s gonna say CC pitched poorly tonight.

    • jm

      does his name rhyme with matthews?

  • Karl Krawfid

    CC is pitching his heart out.

    Come the fuck on Yankees.

  • Joe

    Let’s go, cc did his job.

  • The Real Greg

    So how many more hard hits right at people next inning?

  • TJF

    I won’t listen to TBS or TNT or any of the other crappy network announcers, only our own crappy announcers on WCBS

  • Total Dominication

    I gotta say I don’t mind this booth. There hasn’t been any talk of grit, or clutch or insulting of new stats. Nothing great, but nothing infuriating like the Buck’s, the Morgan’s, the McCarver’s or the Shilling’s.

    • TJF

      That’s a gritty take……

    • jm

      point taken on morgan, mccarve and schilling

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Rule 1: All booths suck and you cannot say otherwise.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    SCORE MORE.

  • JFH

    Yanks will take the lead this inning.

    Baltimore fans ripping off a Philadelphia chant. That’s just all kinds of wrong.

  • Monterowasdinero

    Time for Gardy or Noony to steal us a run..l

  • Ace

    I do not want to see the Yankees play O’s in extra innings. Not the way O’s luck has been this year. Let’s get this shit done.

  • MannyGeee

    time for Robbie

    • MannyGeee

      to roll over on a pitch into a ground out

  • CS Yankee

    These announcers are full of more shit than a Christmas Goose.

  • Tom

    Robinson going opposite field here.

    • Tom

      I meant to say Robinson SHOULD have gone opposite field! ;-)

  • forensic

    Geez Cano, another horrible AB. Can we go back in time to 5 days ago?

    • JLC 776

      Seriously. I guess hacking away worked against the Red Sox ‘finish the season’ mentality.

  • The Real Greg

    If anyone is to be blamed on the offense, it’s that guy. He’s been horrible all night

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Who Robbie? Blame him for the rest of the team incapable of scoring when he has an off day?

    • Bo Knows

      He hit to bullets this game that were caught, unfortunate but it happens

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Roll it over Robbie way to start off the inning

  • Karl Krawfid

    Cano and A-Rod have really stepped it up tonight.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    I have a feeling it’s Garbage Time.

    • CS Yankee

      +1

      • CS Yankee

        I understand somewhat missing the outside call since he sit-ups on the batters side, but that K to Swish was BS…inside on a RHB

      Garbage CALL Time that is.

  • Chris

    ha. the CIN/SF game might finish before this one. they’re in the 7th already

  • Get Phelps Up

    That wasnt a strike. fuck you umpire.

    • Tom

      Ump has been inconsistent all night – why change now?

  • Chris

    Ump has been had awfully inconsistent

  • Adam

    Seriously, Bronson Arroyo has a one hitter through 7?

    • Chris

      .. he’s facing the Giants.

      • Get Phelps Up

        at AT&T park.

    • MannyGeee

      meh, Giants

  • MannyGeee

    nice BB drawn by Tex there

  • jm

    come on grandy

  • forensic

    Granderson is 6-18 with 4 homers against Matusz. Please, please run into one (like that first one down the middle you just took).

    • forensic

      Nevermind, that was pretty pitiful.

    • Chris

      A Granderson strike out, there’s a surprise.

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

    Oh, hello Kurtis.

  • The Real Greg

    Team of destiny….

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    This whiskey needs to start working faster…

  • Karl Krawfid

    Can’t wait till all these scrubs are off the Yankees.

    Swish and Granderson took a fastball that split the plate and a hanging curve down the fucking middle.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    They couldn’t hit Oday’s frisbee and now Matusz the LOOGY. If Buck doesn’t bring in Strop we’re gonna run out of good pitchers. Good thing CC can give us at least one more.

    • Get Phelps Up

      ODay is actually really good. Matusz not so much.

    • jjyank

      You said the word. I hereby internet kill you. You best work on a version 2.0, because….well, because I just killed you.

    • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Thanks dude. I didn’t want to kill everybody on the planet 1000’s of times over, but you forced me.

  • TJF

    This is beginning to look like a game the Yanks should have won but will end up losing………

  • Matt

    These at bats are PATHETIC.

    Strike 1, strike 2 right down the middle. In this spot, you have to be AGGRESSIVE if he is throwing cookies to get ahead. Especially with the bases empty like for Swisher, in which a solo shot on one of those cookies gives you the lead!

    • The Real Greg

      So why don’t you go tell them that?

      • Adam

        Because if he popped out on the first pitch, he would be complaining about not working the count.

        • Matt

          You can’t be serious? If the guy is throwing pitches right down the middle you swing the damn bat. If you miss the pitch, that’s not bad approach, that’s terrible execution.

          • Adam

            He had just thrown 4 balls in a row. Taking isn’t a bad idea.

            • Matt

              Not in the Swisher at bat. And he also hung an 0-1 curve at the belt in the same at bat to Granderson and he barely flinched.

      • Matt

        Thanks for another useless response

  • Effthisnoise

    Sucks Robbie has cooled off, he was epic in the last week and that helped win the division but i was worried bout the 3 day lay off

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    We need to swing at the first strike once in a while and drive it deep.

    • The Real Greg

      But they’re a patient offense.

  • oldmanalex

    if i was girardi. I’d get everyone in a very brief huddle in the dugout and say… “these are the muthafuking orioles, get yo shit together fools”. but im not a coach of a mlb team, the yankees at that.

  • ClayDavis

    For once I wish Smoltz would answer those stupid “what would you do John?” questions with “why you asking me, I never beat the Yankees in the postseason.”

  • Athenian

    Oh Curtis you’re so Grand….

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    the three days off didn’t help our bats. we’ll win this one anyway and the bats will come out swinging hard tomorrow and run shit.

  • True blue

    This is disgusting

  • Sdjohn

    We all know we don’t hit HR’s in post season. Doesn’t matter the quality of the pitcher. And we don’t get hits with RISP either. It’s tough to score runs otherwise. CC deserved better.

    • The Real Greg

      We don’t hit HR’s in postseason?

      Did you watch in 2009, asshole?

      • True blue

        You do realize it 2012?

        • Get Phelps Up

          It’s been 8 innings.

      • Sdjohn

        It’s 2012 bro. I do remember a couple fingers in 96 too but Bernie Williams and Jim leyritz are long since retired. It’s 2012. Also dickhead in 2010 and 2012 not so much.

  • Get Phelps Up

    I wish Jerry Meals was down there.

  • True blue

    Wow. That’s what an extra base hit looks like. Wonder if the O’s will run themselves out of the inning?

  • Cy Pettitte

    Here we go the fold following the choke(s).

  • ClayDavis

    How many breaks can a team get. Jesus Christ

    • TomH

      What “break”? You talking about the O’s?

      • ClayDavis

        The shitty seeing eye singles. Tex missed a hr by less than a foot. That fly out that happened to go right into the random loading dock. Balls with RISP hit directly at guys. Hardy’s double was barely fair

  • TJF

    Too many missed opportunities……

  • forensic

    Ugh, this situation could be the game.

    Very nice change there after 2 inside fastballs

    • Tom

      And followed up by a tremendous slider.

  • RISP Chronicles

    I called it!

  • Adam

    Wow, best slider of the game.

    • Adam

      Errp, change-up.

  • Mike N

    HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!!!!!

    Well, there’s one big out.

    Now need to get Wieters.

    “Goes in for effect”

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    god I love the optimism of yankee fans. With all the positivity on this board you’d think we finished with the best record in the AL, set a team record in homers, with our ACE pitching like one.

    • The Real Greg

      Yankee fans care about only one thing. Winning the World Series. If they don’t do that, its a failure. We’re spoiled people.

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        I get that, but you can’t win the world series in game one of the LDS. I don’t care how good or clutch or whatever you are in that one game but I can say with out a shadow of a doubt that is a fact.

  • TJF

    another strikeout, well, why not strike the side out……..

  • Winter

    Is Wieters better from the left or from the right?

    • forensic

      Much better as a righty.

  • Dorian

    Do you bring in Robertson right here?

    • Chilango Adoptivo

      NO

  • Tony

    CC making some clutch pitches

  • Chris

    Huge two outs by the big man!

  • Dorian

    Big time pitching by 52 right now.

  • Mike N

    YEAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!!!HJAHJA!!!!!!!

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

    Alright, need one more out here. And any hit for Mark Reynolds now is costly, so that’s not an option.

  • Winter

    There we go!

  • TJF

    the optimism of this board sounds like what you’d expect from Boston, not NY, they have reason to bitch, how Yankee fans can come close to the cliff all the time is odd

    Like spoiled children…..

    • Ethan

      I’m sorry for expecting more from my team.

  • Tom

    And that inside fastball was strike 3 to Swish last inning.

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

      That inside fastball has looked good on Gameday all night. Little irritating.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Cause that second pitch to Reynolds wasn’t a strike last inning.

    • The Real Greg

      It was.

  • Tony

    one more big pitch CC!!!

  • ClayDavis

    The Yankees did beat the orioles a few times. TBS not have those highlights?

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Put him away CC!

  • RISP Chronicles

    Drop another slider

  • Sdjohn

    CC that was clutch. Maybe we should let you hit in the 9 hole

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    SCORE NOW!

  • Effthisnoise

    Mark, i suck against everybody except the yankees, reynolds

  • Adam

    Ace. Enough said.

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Awesome. Way to go, CC.

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

    CARSTEN FUCKING CHARLES SABATHIA!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Huge!
    Now score some fucking runs please.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Get CC some fucking runs!

  • Karl Krawfid

    ACCE

    ACCE

  • Chris

    Fucking clutch pitching from CC!

  • Winter

    Big time pitching for the Big Man.

  • Dorian

    That was impressive.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    The ace pitched his heart out tonight. He just didn’t get much support. They could still do well by him if they can push one across in the 9th.

  • Matt

    CC is pitching like an ace tonight. Would be nice if the offense showed up soon.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    cc is a fucking beast!

  • Mike N

    These announcers are seriously the worst. They are not even attempting to analyze the game, the players, or anything. Do they not have assistants to give them stat sheets or whatever?

  • Tony

    Awesome job by CC. Only one mistake all game surrounded by some bloopers and broken bat hits. Can’t ask for much more out of him. He deserves a win here

  • Dan in Athens

    Those are some huge nuts.

  • Joe

    Stones. This is the best cc playoff game that I can remember.
