ALDS Game One Spillover Thread II

By

Another one to keep things moving along smoothly. CC Sabathia is a boss.

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs
  • manny

    ichiro game winning hit called it.

  • The Real Greg

    Well, I’m glad I was wrong.

    Buck’s probably going to use Johnson now.

  • Karl Krawfid

    ACCE

    ACCE

    • RISP Chronicles

      I’ve got $23 million reasons why CC was an ACE tonight

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    can we pinch hit montero here?

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      wouldn’t want to. didn’t hit to well this year.

      • RISP Chronicles

        That’s the product of Safeco, not him.

        • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

          disagree. His average was low…nothing to do with safeco. his power numbers, maybe.

          • Mikhel

            I disagree, check his home/road splits.

            • RetroRob

              Home/road splits are meaningless over one season, even two.

              He just wasn’t that good, to be kind, but he’ll get better.

    • Bartolo’s Colon

      nevermind, russ can handle himself!!!!

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    cc is a fucking beast!

  • forensic

    Terrific job CC!!!

    As for the offense…

  • jjyank

    Big ups for the Big Man. Can we please score now, and start the regression on this “close game” bullshit?

  • Tom

    CC executed his pitches tremendously that inning – other than the first pitch mistake to Jones, that was some ridiculous pitching after the double.

    The sequencing and execution was just absurdly good.

  • Cy Pettitte

    holy shit. wow.

  • Pasqua

    Two homerun hitting teams, both unable to do anything at the plate.

    So, good pitching DOES change everything.

    Way to be, CC.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Springsteen is impossible to comprehend.

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

    Get that man a W this inning.

    Runs. And lots of them. Send the smirking birds fans home angry. C’mon!

  • Get Phelps Up

    I can’t believe it’s only Game 1!

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Score a damn run for CC. He pitched his heart out tonight.

  • Adam

    Hell’s yeah!

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    COLTRANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DC

    MARTIN!!!

  • Cy Pettitte

    COLTRANE!!!!! OMFG!

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    THERE’S OUR RUN! THERE’S OUR RUN! RUSSELL!~!!!!!!!!!!

    RUSSSSS!!!

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    RUSSSSS!!!

  • Winter

    RUSS BUSS!

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    pinch hit for who!!!!!!???????

  • Adam

    I love batting against closers in non-save situations. I know he needs to be in there, but it makes me confident.

  • Mike N

    russell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!woo!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tony

    now john smoltz is very sad

    • Adam

      Seriously. He actually said that the ball two call could have led to the homer.

    • Mike N

      These fucking announcers are the worst and should go fuck themselves.

  • Matt

    CLUTCH HOME RUN! THERE WE GO!!!

  • Pat D

    Fuck yea, Russell.

  • http://twitter.com/nomchompsky Nom Chompsky

    Run doesn’t count, can’t wait for home runs in the playoffs.

  • CS Yankee

    Russell with the muscle….Ernie was excited, good call.

  • Frigidevil

    Martin, you picked a hell of a time to get back on track. Wooooooooooooooooo

  • Hummingbird S.

    RUUUSSSS!! SEEEEEEE YA!

  • nsalem

    LetCCfinish

  • Cy Pettitte

    Raul! insurance runs pls.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    pinch run gardner right now

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Pinch run.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Wait, HOLD IT…I’m not sure that should count because……you cant hit homers in the playoffs!

  • mike_h

    fuck yea Russell!!!!

  • Hummingbird S.

    Great time to bring in Gardner

  • Tom Q

    Got to admit, Russell seems to have the knack for this clutch stuff.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Wow. So unexpected. Martin has really picked it up.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    In yer ear Schmoltz

  • beachbum

    Too many home runs. Yanks can never win in post-season relying on home runs.

  • jjyank

    Hahaha!! I love how Jim Johnson was absolutely money for my fantasy team, and now that it’s all over, he helps out the Yanks. Much appreciated, Mr. Johnson.

    • kcyankeesfan

      Ya, he tore it up for my fantasy team, too. He’s a contact pitcher (groundball pitcher) and everything he threw tonite was up. Yanks just teed off on his shit.

  • Adam

    Umm, Nunie at first, please?

  • Kevin G.

    STOP DEREK JUST STOP

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    why the fuck is ibanez on base right now? what the fuck is wrong with joe?

    • pop

      seriously…

  • Tony

    I thought the Yankees couldn’t hit homeruns in the playoffs due to the great pitching?

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    No pinch runner?

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      THIS, not that it just mattered but WTF?

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    That was awesome. Off Jim Johnson.

    Good job on the new thread, Mike.

  • Noah Poser

    That happened so fast. It seemed the announcers didn’t even care.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Stop bunting the leagues hits leader.

  • RISP Chronicles

    Don’t bunt!

  • forensic

    Oh good, bunting again. Because it worked so well last time, even when you moved them further than you would this time…

  • Matt

    Stop bunting. Jesus christ.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    league’s*.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Let CC finish this off?

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    John Smoltz “Unfortunately this didn’t sink” (on Russel’s home run) You could feel how unfortunate he thought it was in his voice.

    • Tony

      He’s still pissed at the Yankees for beating him in the playoffs and ending his career in Boston

  • Adam

    Oh my crap?!? How did that actually work??

  • Cy Pettitte

    Captain! excellent hit and run.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    INSURANCE!

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

    I’m liking this post-HR rally.

    More runs, please!

  • The Real Greg

    Hit and run. Good call

  • RISP Chronicles

    A Jeterian swing.

  • Mike N

    EL CAPITAN@!!!! More runs!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Absolutely fucking perfect.

    Why no pinch runner?

  • forensic

    Hallelujah for taking off the bunt and putting the runner in motion. LOVE IT!

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    somehow that works, but why is ibanez running the bases? this does not make sense. am i crazy???/

    • forensic

      Completely agree. Finally made the switch now.

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      I’m perplexed.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Whatever happens PH for ARod PLEASE

  • Tom

    Hit and run! Girardi!

    sinkerballer on the mound, GB hitter up – tremendous call.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    can we stop bitching now? we’re taking care of shit.

  • Mike N

    NUNIE!

  • Betty Lizard

    Russell Martin.

    Remember, Russell, my faith has never waivered!

  • The Real Greg

    Nunez is on to pinch run

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    way to try to fuck that up girardi

  • Effthisnoise

    Hit and run to perfection

  • Miller Time

    why wasn’t there a pinch runner???

  • Joe

    Suck it u orange fucks

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Heh.

    Sdjohn says:

    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.

  • ClayDavis

    Smoltz sounds so dejected

  • Winter

    Wait what? Why now?

  • RkyMtnYank

    Smoltz and Ripken must have swallowed their tongues.

  • BigBlueAL

    Russell Martin is my 2nd favorite Canadian ever behind Laura Vandervoort!!

    • Bo Knows

      he’s 8th for me

    • bring buck back

      eh, Steve Nash, Glenn Gould, The Mountie, Bret Hart

      • Bo Knows

        damn I forgot Nash….Russ is 9th

    • Total Dominication

      As someone who grew up with Smallville, I applaud this comment.

  • RISP Chronicles

    What Baltimore? No more White Stripes moaning?

  • Nice Scheister of Doom

    Break this motherfucker open…NOW!!!!!!

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      Ask and ye shall receive. Thank you baseball gods.

  • Get Phelps Up

    CHEAP HITS FTW!!

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    GIGGLING LIKE A SCHOOL GIRL!

  • Cy Pettitte

    Ichiro! thank you for the insurance run.

  • Tony

    Finally some weak hits for the Yankees in this game

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Finally we come alive!!!

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

    Yay for some #OriolesMagic not going the Orioles way.

    • Get Phelps Up

      #YankeesMagic

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    nice nunie!!!!

  • mike_h

    Ichiro!!!! with the insurance run!!!

  • Hummingbird S.

    heads up play by Nunez!

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    blow them out in this last inning. blow it the fuck out!

  • forensic

    Wow, can’t believe how well that little swinging bunt worked out. AWESOME!!!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Hell yes!!!
    Where’s their baseball gods now, Greg?

  • Winter

    NUNIE FTW!

  • beachbum

    Big balls . . . and small ball. Loving it!

  • alittleblackegg

    …And a dribbler for the win! Gorgeous.

  • The Real Greg

    The luck has finally arrived, just in time.

  • Tom

    Could the Yankees get any unluckier this inning?

    #AmIDoingItRight?

  • Mike N

    WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RISP Chronicles

    Did Smoltz just say “lucky hitting”.

    • Captain_Turbo

      Yes, he did.

  • ThrillHouseMD

    Glorious

  • AnthonyD

    Now when the Yankees do it, it’s lucky.

  • Effthisnoise

    How does it feel baltimore

  • pop

    ha ha… piece of shit by Ichiro scores a run…

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    please score at least 7 runs here. i dont want any robert andino magic

  • Get Phelps Up

    ARod 3 run bomb.

  • Tony

    Insurance runs please Arod

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Still no outs…nice.

  • Winter

    Clearly this validates the argument that closer’s can’t pitch when they don’t have a lead.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Hey Greg where’s the luck going now? God likes the Yanks again? wow

    • The Real Greg

      I know. As I said, the luck did an about face.

  • Captain_Turbo

    I’m not seeing the towels.

  • AndrewYF

    It would behoove A-Rod not to do anything here, because if he comes through it will only be because the Yankees were winning in the first place and he was just ‘compiling stats’.

  • RISP Chronicles

    A-rod will make an out

  • Mike N

    A-Rod should have been bunting.

    • Winter

      A-Rod doesn’t have enough hits to bunt. You need to earn that privilege.

  • JLC 776

    A-Rod better start hitting… asshole.

  • oldmanalex

    for all of Girardi’s Bullshit moves. that one was worth it…postseason baseball cheers! btw arod is sooo fucking washed up its not even funny

  • Joe

    4 more years.

    • Bartolo’s Colon

      isn’t it 5?

      • Winter

        4 more years until 1 more year.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      No politics allowed.

      (or if you’re referring to ARod, it’s 5 more years)

  • Cy Pettitte

    all your luck r belong to us

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    ardo does not look too hot tonight, please channel 2009 for the love of god

  • Pinedas’ Colada

    Fuck, Rodriguez!

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

    At least Alex didn’t destroy this rally before any runs were scored.

  • Hummingbird S.

    vintage unclutch A-Rod tonight

  • forensic

    Geez, if anyone is gonna bunt in the lineup, just have A-Rod do it at this point…

  • Get Phelps Up

    Am I the only one who’d let CC finish this off?

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

      I was thinking that, but I’d rather let Soriano start the inning clean.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      I would.

  • JLC 776

    Alright, Robbie. I’m pissed at you, too. GET A FUCKING HIT!

  • Adam

    Wow, bonus if we run through Johnson’s pitch count.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    cano needs to take a breathe. come up big.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      thanks for listening good man.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Why is KRoid hitting? Does he have some dirt on Gurardi or what

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      would you shut the fuck up and enjoy the game?

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan
  • Joe

    Hahha love it

  • Cy Pettitte

    Robbie! nice piece of hitting going oppo there

  • DC

    ROBBIE!

  • Adam

    Where are the doubters?

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      sulking about the redsox sucking and the yankees winning.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    yes!!!!!!!! love ichi on the bases

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Leave CC in there.

  • Captain_Turbo

    Damn, Robbie is good!

  • Mike N

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAH! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nice Scheister of Doom

    I just came.

    • Mike N

      easy bro

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Robbie!!!!!!

    Yeah, insurance runs!!!!

  • Tom

    More shitty luck… this is getting ridiculous.

  • forensic

    WOOOO!!!!! Finally Cano, and great hustle Ichiro!!!

  • JLC 776

    HELLS YEAH!!!!

  • Pat D

    They still gotta get 3 outs, but this is fucking beautiful.

  • Hummingbird S.

    take that, Johnson!

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      Take that, take that, take that….diddy style.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    CANT KEEP ROBBIE DOWN!!

    • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

      BUT YOU CAN’T KEEEEEEP ME DOWN OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOO

      YOU’RE SO BEAUTIFUL TO MEEEEEE!

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Something something RISP something something can’t hit something something.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Robbie!! Fuck yes!!!!

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Cano is my boy. Always been my favorite player. AND HE RAKES.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Great hitting there by Robbie. Joe has pushed all the right buttons this inning.

  • Effthisnoise

    This is the yankees, you are the orioles. That is all

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Yeah Robbie I’ll let you do anything to me I mean nice hitting bro.

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

    Make it rain bitches.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    oh fuck, don’t let soriano look at the scoreboard, tell him we are up by 3

  • oriole killer

    I just wanted to say -

    Yeah! Fuck you, Baltimore fans! Fucking cheer about that with your fucking bullshit home-field advantage! Suck on it.

  • oldmanalex

    im going to go read some more camden chat shit again LOL ahah

  • JLC 776

    And the Orange shirts and gay rally towels all head for the exits!

    • Adam

      Please don’t use stupid pejorative, homophobic slurs.

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        +1 What Adam said.

        • JLC 776

          Seriously though, I feel like I’m in crazy world, how did I use that word in a homophobic tone?????

          • Adam

            Because you clearly used it as a synonym for stupid.

            • JLC 776
      • JLC 776
      • JLC 776

        In other words, the word means ‘happy’.

        • Adam

          Yes, because I am sure that if you used any ethnic group name as a synonym for stupid, that would be really acceptable.

          • JLC 776

            I think you might be tuned a little too tight.

            • Adam

              I think you might be really insensitive. All it takes is an apology.

              • Michael

                Calm down, the guy clearly didn’t use it in a negative tone. It’s gay that the Tigers are up 2-0 on the As, was really hoping that the tigers would lose to the As so the yanks won’t have to face verlander. Thanks for the youtube video, I laughed.

                • Dan Gold

                  Stop with the gay bashing

  • Adam

    Oh Oriole fans, I want to bathe in your tears.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Woooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • Winter

    I don’t care what people say. Robbie’s the best hitter in the game to watch, IMO. Such a sweet swing.

  • I Collect Brett Gardner Cards

    the boom stick!

  • Tom

    Is there a better sight in baseball than having the opposing team’s closer walk off the mound before the end of an inning?

  • Pinedas’ Colada

    Robbie Cano! Don’t cha know!

  • JRod

    I’m still not hating on the O’s even as much as Tampa, let alone the Sux, but now I Just want to punish these bandwagon fools that are seeing the inside of Camden Yards for the first time in 15 years. I’m watching the Postseason.TV feed, and the pathetic wimps are streaming out now.

    • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

      You hate the Rays? I hate the O’s way more.

      • JRod

        Yeah, Still hate the Rays and their hideous stadium a lot more than the O’s for whatever reason.

  • Anthony

    We got this guys! I feel like the Yanks have done this all season. Struggle against mediocre starters but beat up on the supposed shut-down closers.

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

    This is the Orioles come-uppance for the Jerry Meals bullshit.

  • Kevin G.

    Best part about this inning? Tomoorow the Paul O’Neill Rule goes into full effect.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Jim Johnson shat the bed. 108.00 ERA motherfuckaaaaasss.

    • Get Phelps Up

      Damn you beat me to it!

      • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

        Great minds think alike, GPU.

    • DC

      135.00 now!

  • Get Phelps Up

    Jim Johnsons career playoff ERA is…108.00!!

    • Tom

      Up to 135 now! That’s pretty damn awesome!

    • Get Phelps Up

      Now it’s 135.00!

      • Bartolo’s Colon

        hopefully they start johnson in game 3 so we can win 135-3

  • ClayDavis

    These guys sounds so sad. It’s wonderful.

  • Bryan__fromNZ

    0.1 5 4 4 0 1 1 17-11 108.00

    Just had to put Johnson’s line so far.

    • CS Yankee

      Let’s hope he isn’t done with the runs in this series.

      Also, great that Cano is back in the know.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Clutch…..

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    I predicted we’d win 6-2 in the 1st thread. Soriano should be able to hold this. All we needed was a split here in Baltimore and the series would swing heavily in our favor. Now we have Andy in Game 2 for the kill shot.

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      Well…you were wrong.

  • JFH

    That should silence all the pms game thread posts for a while.

  • dontchaknow

    a lil late but… dontchaknow ?? ;)

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    One more run ro put it past 4 let’s go

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    yea 5 run lead, why am i still worried?

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      cause you think illogically.

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      I wonder if he’ll untuck…

  • The Real Greg

    That’s how you play baseball!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ansky

    not too much fake ass orange left at the yards

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    did anybody catch Johnson’s pitch count before he got lifted? I’d love for him to be tired and disheartened tomorrow.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      under 20.

    • Adam

      Eh, only 17.

      • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

        Thanks guys…At least we were jumping on strikes early then…

  • Total Dominication

    And now it’s a 135 postseason era for Johnson.

  • Mike N

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!

  • Adam

    Did he just say they executed walks?

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      Yes, he did. What he meant was they execute birds, Randy Johnson style.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Jim Johnson’s ERA is now up to 135.00

  • Winter

    Did he just say that the Yankees execute their bunts?

    • Nice Scheister of Doom

      Yes, he did. What he meant was they are just Excellent at Execution. Brett Hart style.

  • Dela G

    good god i love this inning. Folks, this is why they play to all 27 outs

    • jjyank

      +10000

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      word.

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    That was fun.

  • Pinedas’ Colada

    I think we’re listening to an O’s broadcast…

  • Pat D

    Sabathia at 110 with a 5-run lead. I say let him pitch unless he gets in trouble.

  • forensic

    5 run lead. I’m leaving CC in there to hopefully finish it off. He’s earned the opportunity.

  • Cy Pettitte

    that was great. bury them tomorrow. come home and celebrate on wednesday.

  • Effthisnoise
  • Get Phelps Up

    Wow the Giants really shit the bed. I expected alot more from them.

    • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

      The Reds are much better.

      • Get Phelps Up

        I thought the Giants would do really good at home with their pitching. I guess not…

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    Joe gets the credit for the clutch hit and run call. Greg will say it was just lucky though right?

    • The Real Greg

      That’s having a plan and executing it. The Ichiro hit was the lucky hit in that inning.

      • CS Yankee

        Because he has only averaged like 50 of those per year over the last decade?

  • Electric nunez

    Lowe right

  • Nice Scheister of Doom

    I wish CC gets the opp to finish this! FINISH HIM!!!

  • forensic

    I think it’s safe to say there’s a ban-hammer on its way…

    • forensic

      Heh, I was going to say ‘reply fail’, but the post was already gone…

      • Mike N

        wut?

        • forensic

          I was replying to a post above that was immediately deleted and banned (as was Need Pitching & Hitting below).

          • forensic

            Though that one is gone now too…

  • Adam

    Wow, letting the big fella finish.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    reply fail

    • Get Phelps Up

      what got deleted?

      • Winter

        It was:

          Reply fail on me this time…

    wow, cc

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    CC! In for the Kill!

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

    Curious, but hey, might as well let him try with a five run lead.

  • Mike N

    WOW! CC is the motherfucking MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Get Phelps Up

    I’d have to think Soriano and Drob could combine for 12 outs tomorrow.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    CC for the CG.

  • mt

    I think that is the first time as a Yankee that Nick Swisher has ever driven in a runner from scoring position – 4 HRS and 5 RBIs before this point.

  • RkyMtnYank

    Why is it that whenever we can’t get the Yes network the booth is always filled with opposition loving yankee haters? (TBS or Fox) You’d think at least once we could get a former Yankees to call them on their bullshit.

    • The Real Greg

      Because everybody hates the Yankees.

    • Mike N

      These fucking douchebags are so disapppointed that the Yanks are winning soundly, and they make it so obvious. It’s disgusting.

  • JLC 776

    I LOVE seeing CC closing out this game.

    • Cy Pettitte

      yea this is a statement. fuck you our ace is awesome.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    nate mclouth looks like that guy from shawshank redemption

  • Get Phelps Up

    lol Cal’s willing the O’s to rally.

  • JLC 776

    I’m so gay for CC right now (just for Adam)

    • Adam

      haha, here we can agree.

      • JLC 776

        :)

        Sorry – didn’t mean any offense earlier. I think it’s one of those things that in person the intent of the word is obvious. Over a chat blog, kind of open to interpretation.

        Let’s enjoy the win!

        • Adam

          Absolutely. Again, I didn’t think you meant offense at all. It is just one of those phrases that people use without thinking about the implications. Not a worry.

    • Dan Gold

      Watch your gay talk

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    CC, CG, ALDS, Game 1, NYY.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    the O look like they just gave up.

  • kcyankeesfan

    They’re lettin CC finish it out. I fuckin love it. How money was tonite’s performance?

  • Mike Stanley

    Guys, this is totally disrespecting Flanny.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Goodnight, beautiful Yankees fans and Greg. Before you fall asleep tonight I want you all to think about how wonderful CC Sabathia is.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    weiters with the worst swing of his entire life

  • Effthisnoise

    Boy, that dugout over there looks a little shell shocked

    • The Real Greg

      That might have an effect tommorrow.

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Let’s go, Not-An-Ace, finish them off.

  • Electric nunez

    CC=ace

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    CC’s so not an ace cause he’s fat and eat’s captain crunch.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      Aces eat Count Chocula.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    at worst yanks go to the bronx having to win a best of 3 series

  • Winter

    From this point forward, every time someone says “the Orioles don’t have a true ‘ace’” I’m just gonna laugh in their face and walk away.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    CC turned it around at exactly the right time-down the stretch and beyond. HUGE

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    Let him finish.

  • Nice Scheister of Doom

    Drive a Chevy. Fuck a Ford.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Kind of sad Joe’s pulling him here.

  • http://theevilsquare.com handtius

    why? why?!?!?

  • Adam

    Seriously? Can’t let him have one more batter at this point?

    • Bo Knows

      120 pitches, he’s a horse but I don’t blame Joe….we might need CC on Short rest

      • Adam

        Yes, but after 120, would 125 really matter?

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

    Oh that is BULLSHIT, Joe.

  • Mike N

    CC is the fucking MAN!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Helluva performance by CC.
    Ace-like even.

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Oh well. Still awesome.

    Great shot of CC entering the dugout. It’s like a bunch of midgets reaching up to high five a giant.

  • Get Phelps Up

    I really don’t like taking CC out with Robert andino up next. Awesome, AWESOME start, though.

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Robertson?? Really Joe?

  • Electric nunez

    Giradi says errr no CG bigman…crap

  • G

    Not an ace.

  • Karl Krawfid

    CC stepped up big time. Player of the game.

    Lead off double by Hardy stranded was the ace moment of the game.

  • jjyank

    Bravo, CC. My hat is off to you, sir. A job well fucking done. You hung in there as long as it took for the offense to wake up/Johnson to suck. Couldn’t have asked for much more.

    *applauds*

  • JLC 776

    Damn… really wanted him to get that 27th (or 28th depending on how you look at it) out.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    CC pitched his heart out tonight. So glad they put some runs on the board and got him the W. Lew Ford continues to be a little gnat but that’s ok, we get the win and have Andy going tomorrow for the kill shot.

  • forensic

    Damn, wish he left him to finish it off, but either way:

    CC!!! Large and In Charge!!!

  • Anthony

    Awesome job CC.

  • Hall and Nokes

    I would do Carsten, if you’re wondering.

  • CS Yankee

    Wonder what the affect of having CC throw 110 versus 120+ would be for game five (if needed). ..not complaining but surprised that he went out in the 9th.

  • OMG! Bagels!

    David Wells?

  • your mom

    Can’t stand this trash named Lew Ford.

  • OMG! Bagels!

    D-ROB finishing. Interesting. CC. Beast.

  • JLC 776

    Aura and Mystique trumps Magic tonight.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    game bitches

  • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

    OURS.

  • Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    WOOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hummingbird S.

    nice freaking win!

  • Mike N

    YES! What a fucking game!!! Awesome111111

  • Get Phelps Up

    10 more like that.

  • BigBlueAL

    Hopefully CC’s next start is Saturday.

  • Adam

    One down, ten to go.

  • Dela G

    yankees win!!!

  • forensic

    WWWOOOOOOO!!!

    Huge win!!!

    Now they have some serious homefield advantage!

  • The Real Greg

    Mission Accomplished in terms of Camden Yards. Now we can play a bit more loosely.

  • Total Dominication

    Wow, what a game by CC. Nice first win.

  • Nice Scheister of Doom

    They did it! Me likey! Longest outing of the post season. Andy will follow suit tomorrow.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Smoltz: “The Orioles should have nothing to be disappointing about other than the loss”

    • OMG! Bagels!

      Yes, that’s always a consolation. We did well but lost.

  • Chilango Adoptivo

    HUGE win. Now sit ARod tomorrow Joe.

    • OMG! Bagels!

      Needs to sit Arod in NY bc he’s going to be boo’d.

    • Pat D

      Yea, Chavez against a lefty he’s never faced. Great idea.

    • RetroRob

      Stop your nonsense. It’s embarrassing you’re a Yankees fan.

  • Pat D

    As far as I’m concerned, tomorrow is a must win.

    For the reason being that the Orioles won 6 at the Stadium this year, so you don’t want them feeling like they have a shot. Second being that I think it’s a must to end this series in 4 or less. Third because I just want to see those Orioles fans cry their eyes out.

    • Eddard reboot v.1.0

      I wouldn’t call it must win as I think they’ve already got their one win they needed in Baltimore. However, tomorrow is a big game because it is the kill shot. Up 2-0 with three at YS and it’s virtually over. Also, Detroit is up 2-0 and you don’t want them sitting around resting and setting up their pitching. We want to get the series over quick so CC doesn’t have to pitch game 5.

      • Pat D

        That’s what I’m saying.

  • Joey Stark

    When it’s all said and done can anyone see CC getting his number retired by the yankees? IF he keeps playing like this I think it’s a lock

    • Pat D

      Too early to say.

    • http://yanksgoyard.com/ Joe F

      There’s going to be no numbers left at this point.
