Another one to keep things moving along smoothly. CC Sabathia is a boss.
ichiro game winning hit called it.
Well, I’m glad I was wrong.
Buck’s probably going to use Johnson now.
I’ve got $23 million reasons why CC was an ACE tonight
can we pinch hit montero here?
wouldn’t want to. didn’t hit to well this year.
That’s the product of Safeco, not him.
disagree. His average was low…nothing to do with safeco. his power numbers, maybe.
I disagree, check his home/road splits.
Home/road splits are meaningless over one season, even two.
He just wasn’t that good, to be kind, but he’ll get better.
nevermind, russ can handle himself!!!!
cc is a fucking beast!
Terrific job CC!!!
As for the offense…
Big ups for the Big Man. Can we please score now, and start the regression on this “close game” bullshit?
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.
holy shit. wow.
Two homerun hitting teams, both unable to do anything at the plate.
So, good pitching DOES change everything.
Way to be, CC.
Springsteen is impossible to comprehend.
Get that man a W this inning.
Runs. And lots of them. Send the smirking birds fans home angry. C’mon!
I can’t believe it’s only Game 1!
Score a damn run for CC. He pitched his heart out tonight.
THERE’S OUR RUN! THERE’S OUR RUN! RUSSELL!~!!!!!!!!!!
MARTIN! BOOM! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RUSSELL HAS FUCKING MUSSEL!
AHHHHHHHH RUSSSSS BUSSSSSSS
RUSSELL BLEEPING MARTIN!!!!
Russell, you fucking sexy slut.
Russell fucking Martin!!!!!!!
My Favorite Marti(a)n!
RUSSEL HAS MUSCLE
Or it’s nothing like hitting a bowling ball.
pinch hit for who!!!!!!???????
I love batting against closers in non-save situations. I know he needs to be in there, but it makes me confident.
now john smoltz is very sad
Seriously. He actually said that the ball two call could have led to the homer.
These fucking announcers are the worst and should go fuck themselves.
CLUTCH HOME RUN! THERE WE GO!!!
Fuck yea, Russell.
Run doesn’t count, can’t wait for home runs in the playoffs.
Russell with the muscle….Ernie was excited, good call.
Martin, you picked a hell of a time to get back on track. Wooooooooooooooooo
RUUUSSSS!! SEEEEEEE YA!
Raul! insurance runs pls.
pinch run gardner right now
Wait, HOLD IT…I’m not sure that should count because……you cant hit homers in the playoffs!
fuck yea Russell!!!!
Great time to bring in Gardner
Got to admit, Russell seems to have the knack for this clutch stuff.
Wow. So unexpected. Martin has really picked it up.
In yer ear Schmoltz
Too many home runs. Yanks can never win in post-season relying on home runs.
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.
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.
Umm, Nunie at first, please?
STOP DEREK JUST STOP
why the fuck is ibanez on base right now? what the fuck is wrong with joe?
I thought the Yankees couldn’t hit homeruns in the playoffs due to the great pitching?
No pinch runner?
THIS, not that it just mattered but WTF?
That was awesome. Off Jim Johnson.
Good job on the new thread, Mike.
That happened so fast. It seemed the announcers didn’t even care.
Stop bunting the leagues hits leader.
Oh good, bunting again. Because it worked so well last time, even when you moved them further than you would this time…
Stop bunting. Jesus christ.
Let CC finish this off?
John Smoltz “Unfortunately this didn’t sink” (on Russel’s home run) You could feel how unfortunate he thought it was in his voice.
He’s still pissed at the Yankees for beating him in the playoffs and ending his career in Boston
Oh my crap?!? How did that actually work??
Captain! excellent hit and run.
I’m liking this post-HR rally.
More runs, please!
Hit and run. Good call
A Jeterian swing.
EL CAPITAN@!!!! More runs!!!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely fucking perfect.
Why no pinch runner?
Hallelujah for taking off the bunt and putting the runner in motion. LOVE IT!
somehow that works, but why is ibanez running the bases? this does not make sense. am i crazy???/
Completely agree. Finally made the switch now.
Whatever happens PH for ARod PLEASE
Hit and run! Girardi!
sinkerballer on the mound, GB hitter up – tremendous call.
can we stop bitching now? we’re taking care of shit.
Remember, Russell, my faith has never waivered!
Nunez is on to pinch run
way to try to fuck that up girardi
Hit and run to perfection
why wasn’t there a pinch runner???
Suck it u orange fucks
October 7, 2012 at 11:17 pm
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.
Smoltz sounds so dejected
Wait what? Why now?
Smoltz and Ripken must have swallowed their tongues.
Russell Martin is my 2nd favorite Canadian ever behind Laura Vandervoort!!
he’s 8th for me
eh, Steve Nash, Glenn Gould, The Mountie, Bret Hart
damn I forgot Nash….Russ is 9th
As someone who grew up with Smallville, I applaud this comment.
What Baltimore? No more White Stripes moaning?
Break this motherfucker open…NOW!!!!!!
Ask and ye shall receive. Thank you baseball gods.
CHEAP HITS FTW!!
GIGGLING LIKE A SCHOOL GIRL!
Ichiro! thank you for the insurance run.
Finally some weak hits for the Yankees in this game
Finally we come alive!!!
Yay for some #OriolesMagic not going the Orioles way.
Ichiro!!!! with the insurance run!!!
heads up play by Nunez!
blow them out in this last inning. blow it the fuck out!
Wow, can’t believe how well that little swinging bunt worked out. AWESOME!!!
Where’s their baseball gods now, Greg?
Big balls . . . and small ball. Loving it!
…And a dribbler for the win! Gorgeous.
The luck has finally arrived, just in time.
Could the Yankees get any unluckier this inning?
Did Smoltz just say “lucky hitting”.
Yes, he did.
Now when the Yankees do it, it’s lucky.
How does it feel baltimore
ha ha… piece of shit by Ichiro scores a run…
please score at least 7 runs here. i dont want any robert andino magic
ARod 3 run bomb.
Insurance runs please Arod
Still no outs…nice.
Clearly this validates the argument that closer’s can’t pitch when they don’t have a lead.
Hey Greg where’s the luck going now? God likes the Yanks again? wow
I know. As I said, the luck did an about face.
I’m not seeing the towels.
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’.
A-rod will make an out
A-Rod should have been bunting.
A-Rod doesn’t have enough hits to bunt. You need to earn that privilege.
A-Rod better start hitting… asshole.
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
4 more years.
isn’t it 5?
4 more years until 1 more year.
No politics allowed.
(or if you’re referring to ARod, it’s 5 more years)
all your luck r belong to us
ardo does not look too hot tonight, please channel 2009 for the love of god
At least Alex didn’t destroy this rally before any runs were scored.
vintage unclutch A-Rod tonight
Geez, if anyone is gonna bunt in the lineup, just have A-Rod do it at this point…
Am I the only one who’d let CC finish this off?
I was thinking that, but I’d rather let Soriano start the inning clean.
Alright, Robbie. I’m pissed at you, too. GET A FUCKING HIT!
Wow, bonus if we run through Johnson’s pitch count.
cano needs to take a breathe. come up big.
thanks for listening good man.
Why is KRoid hitting? Does he have some dirt on Gurardi or what
would you shut the fuck up and enjoy the game?
Hahha love it
Robbie! nice piece of hitting going oppo there
Where are the doubters?
sulking about the redsox sucking and the yankees winning.
yes!!!!!!!! love ichi on the bases
Leave CC in there.
Damn, Robbie is good!
YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAH! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just came.
Yeah, insurance runs!!!!
More shitty luck… this is getting ridiculous.
WOOOO!!!!! Finally Cano, and great hustle Ichiro!!!
They still gotta get 3 outs, but this is fucking beautiful.
take that, Johnson!
Take that, take that, take that….diddy style.
CANT KEEP ROBBIE DOWN!!
BUT YOU CAN’T KEEEEEEP ME DOWN OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOO
YOU’RE SO BEAUTIFUL TO MEEEEEE!
Something something RISP something something can’t hit something something.
Robbie!! Fuck yes!!!!
Cano is my boy. Always been my favorite player. AND HE RAKES.
Great hitting there by Robbie. Joe has pushed all the right buttons this inning.
This is the yankees, you are the orioles. That is all
Yeah Robbie I’ll let you do anything to me I mean nice hitting bro.
Make it rain bitches.
oh fuck, don’t let soriano look at the scoreboard, tell him we are up by 3
I just wanted to say -
Yeah! Fuck you, Baltimore fans! Fucking cheer about that with your fucking bullshit home-field advantage! Suck on it.
im going to go read some more camden chat shit again LOL ahah
And the Orange shirts and gay rally towels all head for the exits!
Please don’t use stupid pejorative, homophobic slurs.
+1 What Adam said.
Seriously though, I feel like I’m in crazy world, how did I use that word in a homophobic tone?????
Because you clearly used it as a synonym for stupid.
In other words, the word means ‘happy’.
Yes, because I am sure that if you used any ethnic group name as a synonym for stupid, that would be really acceptable.
I think you might be tuned a little too tight.
I think you might be really insensitive. All it takes is an apology.
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.
Stop with the gay bashing
Oh Oriole fans, I want to bathe in your tears.
I don’t care what people say. Robbie’s the best hitter in the game to watch, IMO. Such a sweet swing.
the boom stick!
Is there a better sight in baseball than having the opposing team’s closer walk off the mound before the end of an inning?
Robbie Cano! Don’t cha know!
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.
You hate the Rays? I hate the O’s way more.
Yeah, Still hate the Rays and their hideous stadium a lot more than the O’s for whatever reason.
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.
This is the Orioles come-uppance for the Jerry Meals bullshit.
Best part about this inning? Tomoorow the Paul O’Neill Rule goes into full effect.
Jim Johnson shat the bed. 108.00 ERA motherfuckaaaaasss.
Damn you beat me to it!
Great minds think alike, GPU.
Jim Johnsons career playoff ERA is…108.00!!
Up to 135 now! That’s pretty damn awesome!
Now it’s 135.00!
hopefully they start johnson in game 3 so we can win 135-3
These guys sounds so sad. It’s wonderful.
0.1 5 4 4 0 1 1 17-11 108.00
Just had to put Johnson’s line so far.
Let’s hope he isn’t done with the runs in this series.
Also, great that Cano is back in the know.
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.
Well…you were wrong.
That should silence all the pms game thread posts for a while.
a lil late but… dontchaknow ??
One more run ro put it past 4 let’s go
yea 5 run lead, why am i still worried?
cause you think illogically.
I wonder if he’ll untuck…
That’s how you play baseball!!!!!!!!!!!
not too much fake ass orange left at the yards
did anybody catch Johnson’s pitch count before he got lifted? I’d love for him to be tired and disheartened tomorrow.
Eh, only 17.
Thanks guys…At least we were jumping on strikes early then…
And now it’s a 135 postseason era for Johnson.
Did he just say they executed walks?
Yes, he did. What he meant was they execute birds, Randy Johnson style.
Jim Johnson’s ERA is now up to 135.00
Did he just say that the Yankees execute their bunts?
Yes, he did. What he meant was they are just Excellent at Execution. Brett Hart style.
good god i love this inning. Folks, this is why they play to all 27 outs
That was fun.
I think we’re listening to an O’s broadcast…
Sabathia at 110 with a 5-run lead. I say let him pitch unless he gets in trouble.
5 run lead. I’m leaving CC in there to hopefully finish it off. He’s earned the opportunity.
that was great. bury them tomorrow. come home and celebrate on wednesday.
Wow the Giants really shit the bed. I expected alot more from them.
The Reds are much better.
I thought the Giants would do really good at home with their pitching. I guess not…
Joe gets the credit for the clutch hit and run call. Greg will say it was just lucky though right?
That’s having a plan and executing it. The Ichiro hit was the lucky hit in that inning.
Because he has only averaged like 50 of those per year over the last decade?
I wish CC gets the opp to finish this! FINISH HIM!!!
I think it’s safe to say there’s a ban-hammer on its way…
Heh, I was going to say ‘reply fail’, but the post was already gone…
I was replying to a post above that was immediately deleted and banned (as was Need Pitching & Hitting below).
Though that one is gone now too…
Wow, letting the big fella finish.
what got deleted?
Reply fail on me this time…
CC! In for the Kill!
Curious, but hey, might as well let him try with a five run lead.
WOW! CC is the motherfucking MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’d have to think Soriano and Drob could combine for 12 outs tomorrow.
CC for the CG.
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.
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.
Because everybody hates the Yankees.
These fucking douchebags are so disapppointed that the Yanks are winning soundly, and they make it so obvious. It’s disgusting.
I LOVE seeing CC closing out this game.
yea this is a statement. fuck you our ace is awesome.
nate mclouth looks like that guy from shawshank redemption
lol Cal’s willing the O’s to rally.
I’m so gay for CC right now (just for Adam)
haha, here we can agree.
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!
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.
Watch your gay talk
CC, CG, ALDS, Game 1, NYY.
the O look like they just gave up.
They’re lettin CC finish it out. I fuckin love it. How money was tonite’s performance?
Guys, this is totally disrespecting Flanny.
Goodnight, beautiful Yankees fans and Greg. Before you fall asleep tonight I want you all to think about how wonderful CC Sabathia is.
weiters with the worst swing of his entire life
Boy, that dugout over there looks a little shell shocked
That might have an effect tommorrow.
Let’s go, Not-An-Ace, finish them off.
CC’s so not an ace cause he’s fat and eat’s captain crunch.
Aces eat Count Chocula.
at worst yanks go to the bronx having to win a best of 3 series
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.
CC turned it around at exactly the right time-down the stretch and beyond. HUGE
Let him finish.
Drive a Chevy. Fuck a Ford.
Kind of sad Joe’s pulling him here.
Seriously? Can’t let him have one more batter at this point?
120 pitches, he’s a horse but I don’t blame Joe….we might need CC on Short rest
Yes, but after 120, would 125 really matter?
Oh that is BULLSHIT, Joe.
CC is the fucking MAN!
Helluva performance by CC.
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.
I really don’t like taking CC out with Robert andino up next. Awesome, AWESOME start, though.
Robertson?? Really Joe?
Giradi says errr no CG bigman…crap
Not an ace.
CC stepped up big time. Player of the game.
Lead off double by Hardy stranded was the ace moment of the game.
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.
Damn… really wanted him to get that 27th (or 28th depending on how you look at it) out.
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.
Damn, wish he left him to finish it off, but either way:
CC!!! Large and In Charge!!!
Awesome job CC.
I would do Carsten, if you’re wondering.
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.
Can’t stand this trash named Lew Ford.
D-ROB finishing. Interesting. CC. Beast.
Aura and Mystique trumps Magic tonight.
nice freaking win!
YES! What a fucking game!!! Awesome111111
10 more like that.
Hopefully CC’s next start is Saturday.
One down, ten to go.
Now they have some serious homefield advantage!
Mission Accomplished in terms of Camden Yards. Now we can play a bit more loosely.
Wow, what a game by CC. Nice first win.
They did it! Me likey! Longest outing of the post season. Andy will follow suit tomorrow.
Smoltz: “The Orioles should have nothing to be disappointing about other than the loss”
Yes, that’s always a consolation. We did well but lost.
HUGE win. Now sit ARod tomorrow Joe.
Needs to sit Arod in NY bc he’s going to be boo’d.
Yea, Chavez against a lefty he’s never faced. Great idea.
Stop your nonsense. It’s embarrassing you’re a Yankees fan.
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.
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.
That’s what I’m saying.
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
Too early to say.
There’s going to be no numbers left at this point.
