New thread just to keep the site moving smoothly. Go Yankees.
WooHoo!!!! Spillover threads return!!!!!
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.
all acting. trying to get the call.
I love spillover threads.
Nothing reminds you of October baseball like spillover threads.
I love how TBS has gone to a first name only basis to refer to all Orioles players.
I’ve heard them say Alex and Robbie too.
It’s stupid with either team.
Hammel’s been wild. 3rd time through the order. Finish him.
stop cheering when Hammel comes up and in at their heads, stupid fans.
Cheering when a guy almost gets hit in the head? Stay classy O’s fans.
Wow. O’s fans are douches. Second time they cheered for a pitch like that.
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.
Nothing against you, but the idea that somebody would be doing that makes me not want the yankees to score.
Wait…you want him to punch himself in the balls?
Absolutely. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen it done and it is hysterical!
more than ive ever wanted anything since I was a virgin, my friend
Wow, you guys are mean. I couldn’t bring myself to wish that pain on another human. Not even a Red Sox fan.
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.
Heh. Fair enough.
now I am almost cheering for a popout, and praying that you have a youtube account and a webcam
Let’s go A-Rod
Alex just missing
Alex is what now, 42? 43?
These balls are right down the middle.
Cano is just swinging and swinging.
Hopefully he hits something hard.
Ugh, Cano’s in ‘swing at every pitch that leaves the pitcher’s hand’ mode.
Last two at-bats Robbie has swung at like eight consecutive pitches outside of the zone.
I love Robbie and all but I’m having a heart attack watching him do this…
We need the runs now before we get to their bullpen.
ARod is just plain awful. Joe doesn’t have the stones to sit him
He’s the only one working counts. Not sure what game you are watching.
Yeah because Jayson Nix is such a better option…
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???
Robbie is swinging at absolutely everything tonight.
Again, either Hammel has some late life on his fastball or his delivery is deceiving because it seems everybody is late on his fastball.
Very disappointed in Robbie. I’ve been worried all week the break would break him. Please prove me wrong next AB….
Good to see Robbie trying to get himself out….smfh.
garbage time is all the time in October!
And that’s it for Hammel.
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.
Tex as well, 2-3.
Risp. Then post
My nuts. Suck them.
Then what will the homeless man do for change.
Lets hammer them now
Is really early, I know…but any desire to run Gardner for Swisher here?
There are two outs and Swisher is guaranteed to bat again. No chance.
Not with two outs.
no way. robbie won’t see another pitch all game.
Very very disappointing performance by the offense against Hammel. Now they have to do it against their very good bullpen. Kinda sucks…
Bailed him out with the two baserunning mistakes.
You’d think they know about weiters arm and tex should know he’s slow, posada slow.
Big time. Both blew chances to score more easily with outs. Just can’t do that against a good team.
Dear Tex & Grandy: Time to be a boss against LHP again…
JLC 776′s testicles
My testicles appreciate the vote of support.
Well, 2 on. Let’s go. One more hit.
Granderson this is your moment
When did ARod hit HR # 17 this year?
Why did they bring in a sidewinding LHP against Tex?
Because Tex is 0 for 6 against him. SSS.
I thought Mastuz was their LOOGY?
I think it might be time to break out the scotch.
YOu have got to be effin kidding me.
Stupid odd ballpark configuration.
See what I mean? Luck
It was a routine flyball – how in the hell is that luck?
Because it didn’t go foul?
He turned his head and the ball found his glove somehow.
It did go right where there was a weird cutout in the seats.
Because he caught it without looking at it. Watch the replay. He didn’t even see the ball go into his glove.
because it was caught in a little nook that does not exist in nature. or in any other park in baseball
Fuck you camden yards
Thats gone in our bandbox stadium
As the ball disappears from view, where the wall angle changes…
Can’t make this shit up.
I hate that corner, wtf is that random cutout? seems like every series they play one lands there perfectly for the Orioles.
I was going to say, I’ve never seen foul ground so weirdly placed, and they get a key out from it.
that sucked. why would they make that little closet nook in play? shitty
He literally wasn’t even looking.
Fucking inferior teams catching all the breaks
Literally doing it w/ their eyes closed
Everything’s going their way. You can’t stop luck or destiny
At least I’ve been drinking since 6pm…
Seems like Murphy’s Law against the Yanks tonight.
So it’s going to one of these stress-filled games, I guess….
It’s been like this all game.
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.
ARod scored a run and has worked good at bats. He showed up. Cano hasn’t
Glad to see we’ve waited 2.5 times through the order to determine who has and who hasn’t shown up.
typically determined blindly in the 1st. so this is good!
God dammit Nunez!
This wasn’t supposed to be a reply.
Cano’s been so bad he gets called out twice?
Greg may be right. We’re not getting many breaks ….yet. But ARod still sucks. I’d like to see Chavez get a shot
“Greg may be right.” Stopped reading.
See he caught it without looking at it.
that is just an insane little cubby. just nuts
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
No fastballs here CC (at least in the zone)
i could almost feel the hanging slider before it got thrown
There’s another hit off the end of the bat.
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.
God dammit Jeter.
God damn it.
And a funny hop.
Come on guys, this is too obvious
Jeter. No range.
Jeter has no range, but he’s surehanded.
And when he’s doing that, he’s completely worthless out there.
Man, gotta charge that.
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.
No closeup of that?
Shoulda gone to first, Cap’n.
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.
It is a rarity. That pop up he dropped, wasn’t that the only one in his career?
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.
thank god. that was getting sticky
CC is beast.
But no harm done.
Score some fucking runs, already.
Anyone else waiting for Cal to whip off his headphones and start outright rooting…?
he’s probably been waving an orange towel the entire game
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.
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?
76 pitches through 6. score some runs so CC can lock this thing down please.
Alright let’s put up some runs!
Step it up Yankee offense.
CC has been pitching his ass of for you.
and thats gotta be alot of pitching, because… well, you know….
CC is pitching a hell of a game. If thay had scored a few more we’d be able to appreciate it.
crooked # plz
damn, yall got on jetes quick. it happens.
Russ going deep calling it.
Come on blackhole get a hit
blackhole sun, won’t ya come, wash away the pain, blackhole sun, blackhole sun…..
I hear Soundgarden is coming out with a new album, should be awesome after all this time.
Oh horrible, after all this time…I’ll reserve judgement till i hear.
Yep, can’t be any worse than Audioslave though. Be better if Rage were putting out something new!
If they pinch hit for Ibanez, they’ll bring in O’day to face the right handed hitter
Then you PH Gardner
I don’t trust Gardner’s bat. I trust his speed and defense
Wow, excellent at bat.
Ibanez bunt? crazy?
TBS announcement: Crew not unbalanced enough, John Smoltz will be replaced starting tomorrow with –
Patton has 15 pitches through .2IP, CC has 72 through 6.
Did you really expect different from Girardi?
Let a man dream…
…Raul is hitting for himself?Q
Great ab by martin
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.
Pinch hit Nunez!
Why do they look at Buck every time there’s semi-questionable play but they never look at girardi.
Why ibanez here? No nunez
Why is ibanez hitting right now?
O’Day was ready. Binder said Ibanez v. lefty was better than Nunez v. the righty. Binder says bunt now. The Binder is frustrating.
Will all of you asking look at my post. Thay had O’Day warming
Yankees also have some guy named Chavez
wow, hear a pin drop in Camden now, huh
IBANEZ AHHHH! STOP IT. WTF.
Fucking swinging at ball four Ibanez…
Way to rebound.
Ugghh…take the walk.
Apparently just wanted to run up his pitch count up before walking
good job Raul
Hindsight’s pretty nice huh
And in the end, the lefty walked him
Wow. Excellent PA from Raul, especially against a LHP.
Well that’s good. Now Jeter’s going to bunt though…
Small ball. DO IT.
Raul working this 6 ball walk, that’s impressive.
Two great at bats. For the complaints here on the Yanks’ hitting tonight, their approach has actually been great. The hits will come.
The Binder says to bunt.
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.
Jeter’s going to bunt… and everybody is going to absolutely fli[ their shit
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.
Is this tailormade for a Jeter ‘on his own’ bunt or what? Time to give away an out.
I think Girardi will call it.
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.
If Jeter tries to bunt, I will drive down to Baltimore and beat him.
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.
I wonder if they’d IBB Ichiro and leave it up to ARod.
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.
This announcing teams so blatantly angling their commentary in favor of the Orioles. It’s infuriating.
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?
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.
Please no GIDJ here, please.
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.
For the love of god please No GIDP
Would be completely okay with Jeter bunting.
Balk… he has to stop.
Eh.. maybe it’s just his delivery making him look like he’s moving the whole time
good luck bunting that delivery
Aubrey oday pitching?
That was fucking awful Captain.
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.
Capt gettin it done
Derek has cajones to bunt with two strikes
Ballsy decision by Jeter there.
Get these runs home.
Good job w 2 strikes!
sweet 2 strike bunt. hot damn
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.
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?
when you got Derek Jeter money, you just get wheels or roller skates installed on them thangs.
Did Derek Jeter just bunt with 2 strikes? The guy who’s leading MLB in hits by a mile?
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.
strike zone against lefties is getting wider and wider.
Ok Ichiro and/or A-Rod. Gotta get the job done here!
I’m amazed Machado was actually in on that with 2 strikes – off the bat I thought it was a single.
Thats a strike ?
Wow. Not sure what to think about that at bat.
Lets go Ichiro!
Do ichiro we all know what arod will do
The dreaded RISP….
Yay for not getting the job done.
Two on, no outs. Let’s have one of the all time greatest players bunt. GENIUS!!! FML!
hit hard but right at someone. of course.
And of course, hit RIGHT AT THE SECOND BASEMAN
For fuck’s sake.
Even when he’s on base he sucks.
And slide away from the catcher Martin, not toward him.
COME ON !!!!!
That Bunt by Jeter sure helped..smh…
wow… right at Andino. woulda been nice if Russell slid under that tag though
Oh. Well nice try on to the 8th
HOW MANY FUCKING TIMES ARE WE GOING TO DO THAT!!! Make sure the ball is THROUGH!!! Martin is LOOKING at the second baseman.
That’s a called play. Contact play.
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.
He was going on contact. THat was the play. What are you going to do?
Stop calling the contact play. That’s at least the third time it’s bit us in the ass.
Bad slide by Martin there. (almost looked like he was thinking about running him over)
out by s mile. Yanks running themsleves out of the gsme.Fuck this
Alright ARod, this is where you earn your pinstripes… again
Wow for a second i almost forgot i was watching the yanks
I mean how obvious is this people?
Come on A-Rod!!! Be the hero!
Even in the playoffs. RISP fail. Another inning of no runs.
No swing there…
Angel Hernandez can suck a dick
Fucking Hernandez with that shit eating smirk
we need an O’s lucky dink here
A Rod is praying for that walk.
You just know these orange clowns will score with some shitty bloops.
Just fucking awful.
That inning was a microcosm of both teams’ seasons.
we’re the veteran team that’s been here a million times right? I couldn’t tell by the baserunning.
Bunch of unlucky idiots.
Terrible AB, terrible inning, terrible offensive performance all game basically.
Break after break has gone their way tonight. It’s so obvious.
Fuck that inning. And if I EVER hear about a pitcher’s “frisbee” ever again, I will kill someone.
yes, that means I will kill a google people if I ever hear about a pitcher’s “frisbee” again.
get your gun ready cause we got at least 2 more games against these birds.
Pathetic. The Orioles have walked man after man and they only have 2 runs to show for it. Get a clutch hit.
I don’t know why I even thought they might score.
I know. they yanks never score any runs. like ever. oh wait…
this is just digusting
Keep grinding CC
Sorry guys. I’ll get a hit next time. I promise.
Yeah let’d keep hitting ARod 3rd.
Three pretty terrible at-bats by the vets there.
The rispf will not hold up in the playoffs, esp with the oriols record in close and extra inning games.
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.
Dude, Ichiro hit a bullet that found a glove. It happens.
Get AROD the fuck out of the lineup. I want Chavez!
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.
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.
That’s not the game screaming at you, it’s the voice in your head.
Up the dosage.
The belief in (baseball) gods is silly.
My God! Fucking pathetic.
Old Purple Lips doing what he does best—choking in the clutch.
I’m sure you were thrilled when he struck out.
He’s had that typed in all night, just waiting for the time when he could finally hit ‘submit’.
The truth is the truth.
I get that people don’t like sucking but why the fuck do people only blame ARod? The real problem is everyone.
Because Arod has made a career of it, cheats, and gets paid $25M per year.
Still can’t get a hit when they need to. The season was over before it started.
Back to the heart of the lineup having none.
11 baserunners and 2 runs…smh.
Remember everyone-ARod has ended our last two seasons with a K.
Bat him 3rd?
Change is hard.
Thanks for that depressing reminder.
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.
Finally, someone who agrees with me.
The only team that could fuck up 2nd and 3rd with one out with 2-3-4 coming up is the 2012 yankees
lew ford, robert andino, nate mclouth, might as well be ruth, williams and bonds
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
Next year, the Yankees need to have more average hitters who can put the ball in the play. They also need more speed.
Been saying that all year and you would complain about it.
I’ve been saying that 2009 was the last hurrah with this cast for the last 2 years.
No one complains they just use the “but hitting t3h hrs is bad” meme.
I thought Ichiro was supposed to do that?
Well he did for a month.
And he hit it right at somebody. Something the Yankees have been doing an awful lot tonight.
they can’t control where the ball goes. yes, it’s annoying, but they can’t guide the ball.
Good hitters can control where the balls go.
Don’t let this get to extras.
Arod is an automatic out – Girardi needs to move him down in the order
He reached base before and scored the tying run.
Dear Mr Editor in Chief:
please dont ruin the narrative.
Sincerely, the Bridge Jumpers
OK so he’s only an 8 in 10 probable out. I still say give Chavez a shot.
Breaking news from Baltimore, some skank just made out with the Oriole mascot.
Best thing to happen all game…
And here comes the bottom of the line up, goodbye tie
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.
Really the only bad baserunning play was Ichiro’s dumb steal attempt.
Forgetting about Tex?
Nope, that wasn’t a bad play on Tex’s part.
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.
*stretch on one leg
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.
let me know when the quality pitchers get here… Jason Hammel and Darren O’Day arent exactly Schilling and Randy Johnson
Then they should be scoring more than 2 runs to make this issue irrelevant.
If you hadn’t noticed, before hammels got injured, we was pitched pretty damn well.
And you’re gonna have an even harder time trying to string together 3-4 hits for runs rather than turning on one mistake.
Tell that to the Reds.
Except we weren’t facing a quality pitcher.
Horse shit call.
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.
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.
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!
Looks like we’re gonna need 9 innings from CC tonight.
wow, when did we get to Boston with the Yankees Suck chant? bunch of unoriginal cunts
I am not prepared for this sort of anarchy.
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.
who’s got a final score prediction?
Looks like one of those 3-2 Orioles walk offs
4-3 Orioles (17 inn)
CC goes 14 innings tonight, book it
Joe use the bench you have guys that can hit on the bench
With all the panic in here, you’d think the O’s would be up by 10
Been the trend for most of the last two months.
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?
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.
Yes, and if Jeter hit into a double play, I am sure you would have had a rational reaction as well.
Am I seriously the only person who had a problem with the contact play w/ Ichiro up?
Yes. Ichiro most times puts the ball in play. The problem was that he hit it right at somebody. Which is what?
If he makes contact, make sure it’s not DIRECTLY AT SOMEBODY then take off for home.
But that’s not the contact play. The runner leaves third on contact that isn’t a pop up.
Im saying that is what I would have done INSTEAD of the contact play.
Right, which I get. BUt I think there is an argument to be made for both.
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.
No, it’s not just you.
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.
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.
Relax, everyone… so far this game has been exactly as predicted. Good pitching, shitty hitting.
WE ARE GONNA WIN!!!!!
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.
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.
Biggest mistakes so far, the Tex out at second and Swisher not scoring, that still hurts
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.
I think tex is slower.
How does that not get Andino tossed?
No one gets tossed in the playoffs unless they really hang around and ask for it.
Or wear eye black on the pitcher’s mound.
Struck that motherfucker OUT!
beauty of a pitch… Andino doing his best Youk impression
CC’s starting to nibble a little too much
Fuck you andino
Tony Randazzo has called a great ballgame tonight. The Os are big babies, he’s been calling that all night.
Did Robert Andino just twirl in anger? That was hilarious.
These announcers are so full of shit.
cal is alright – other guy is a moron
They’re both terrible.
CC’s been great tonight, can we PLEASE push across a run for him.
alot of bats breaking tonight, huh?
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.
Some idiot’s gonna say CC pitched poorly tonight.
does his name rhyme with matthews?
CC is pitching his heart out.
Come the fuck on Yankees.
Let’s go, cc did his job.
So how many more hard hits right at people next inning?
I won’t listen to TBS or TNT or any of the other crappy network announcers, only our own crappy announcers on WCBS
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.
That’s a gritty take……
point taken on morgan, mccarve and schilling
Rule 1: All booths suck and you cannot say otherwise.
Yanks will take the lead this inning.
Baltimore fans ripping off a Philadelphia chant. That’s just all kinds of wrong.
Time for Gardy or Noony to steal us a run..l
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.
time for Robbie
to roll over on a pitch into a ground out
These announcers are full of more shit than a Christmas Goose.
Robinson going opposite field here.
I meant to say Robinson SHOULD have gone opposite field!
Geez Cano, another horrible AB. Can we go back in time to 5 days ago?
Seriously. I guess hacking away worked against the Red Sox ‘finish the season’ mentality.
If anyone is to be blamed on the offense, it’s that guy. He’s been horrible all night
Who Robbie? Blame him for the rest of the team incapable of scoring when he has an off day?
He hit to bullets this game that were caught, unfortunate but it happens
Roll it over Robbie way to start off the inning
Cano and A-Rod have really stepped it up tonight.
I have a feeling it’s Garbage Time.
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
he’s looked good tonight
Garbage CALL Time that is.
At least Swish has head great at bats tonight
No way was that a strike.
Swisher now 1-19 against Matusz in his career. Yikes.
ha. the CIN/SF game might finish before this one. they’re in the 7th already
That wasnt a strike. fuck you umpire.
Ump has been inconsistent all night – why change now?
Ump has been had awfully inconsistent
Seriously, Bronson Arroyo has a one hitter through 7?
.. he’s facing the Giants.
at AT&T park.
nice BB drawn by Tex there
come on grandy
Granderson is 6-18 with 4 homers against Matusz. Please, please run into one (like that first one down the middle you just took).
Nevermind, that was pretty pitiful.
A Granderson strike out, there’s a surprise.
Oh, hello Kurtis.
Team of destiny….
This whiskey needs to start working faster…
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.
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.
ODay is actually really good. Matusz not so much.
You said the word. I hereby internet kill you. You best work on a version 2.0, because….well, because I just killed you.
Thanks dude. I didn’t want to kill everybody on the planet 1000′s of times over, but you forced me.
This is beginning to look like a game the Yanks should have won but will end up losing………
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!
So why don’t you go tell them that?
Because if he popped out on the first pitch, he would be complaining about not working the count.
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.
He had just thrown 4 balls in a row. Taking isn’t a bad idea.
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.
Thanks for another useless response
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
We need to swing at the first strike once in a while and drive it deep.
But they’re a patient offense.
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.
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.”
Oh Curtis you’re so Grand….
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.
This is disgusting
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.
We don’t hit HR’s in postseason?
Did you watch in 2009, asshole?
You do realize it 2012?
It’s been 8 innings.
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.
or 2010, or 2011? They hit a lot of homeruns
Seriously, Francona was one of the best announcers I’ve heard in awhile. Too bad he’s going to the Indians.
This team is so feast or famine
Somebody give me CC’s pitch count; I can’t see the number in the side bar on my screen.
That’s game over I bet
And thus it begins
I wish Jerry Meals was down there.
Wow. That’s what an extra base hit looks like. Wonder if the O’s will run themselves out of the inning?
and now we’re fucked. unreal.
Here we go the fold following the choke(s).
How many breaks can a team get. Jesus Christ
What “break”? You talking about the O’s?
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
Too many missed opportunities……
Ugh, this situation could be the game.
Strike this motherfucker out!
I bet he gets 2 outs and then he lets up a bloop single to score Hardy.
There is the winning run. Fuck.
I think we, as Yankee fans, should start a mass petition for A-Rod’s retirement. I mean, am I right?
arods toast. and im like his biggest fan
but he got on base and scored a run tonight. Fully justifies his .200/.300 Sept/Oct
I’d walk him
I’m stupid, CC you rock
adam jones is NOT a superstar. STFU
Missed opportunities will kill u in the postseason. And we are just unable to score runs in postseason ball. It’s a shame really.
Who didn’t see this having enormous backfire potential?
CC’s just about done here…
Oh yeah, that was yet ANOTHER BREAK as the ball barely stayed in play.
Here comes the slider…
Very nice change there after 2 inside fastballs
And followed up by a tremendous slider.
I called it!
Wow, best slider of the game.
Well, there’s one big out.
Now need to get Wieters.
“Goes in for effect”
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.
Yankee fans care about only one thing. Winning the World Series. If they don’t do that, its a failure. We’re spoiled people.
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.
another strikeout, well, why not strike the side out……..
Is Wieters better from the left or from the right?
Much better as a righty.
Do you bring in Robertson right here?
CC making some clutch pitches
Huge two outs by the big man!
Big time pitching by 52 right now.
Alright, need one more out here. And any hit for Mark Reynolds now is costly, so that’s not an option.
There we go!
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…..
I’m sorry for expecting more from my team.
And that inside fastball was strike 3 to Swish last inning.
That inside fastball has looked good on Gameday all night. Little irritating.
Cause that second pitch to Reynolds wasn’t a strike last inning.
one more big pitch CC!!!
The Yankees did beat the orioles a few times. TBS not have those highlights?
Put him away CC!
Drop another slider
CC that was clutch. Maybe we should let you hit in the 9 hole
Mark, i suck against everybody except the yankees, reynolds
Ace. Enough said.
Awesome. Way to go, CC.
CARSTEN FUCKING CHARLES SABATHIA!
Now score some fucking runs please.
Get CC some fucking runs!
Fucking clutch pitching from CC!
Big time pitching for the Big Man.
That was impressive.
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.
CC is pitching like an ace tonight. Would be nice if the offense showed up soon.
cc is a fucking beast!
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?
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
Those are some huge nuts.
Stones. This is the best cc playoff game that I can remember.
