Raul Ibanez will live forever.
Raul The dirty bird.
Shutdown inning please.
Great move by Girardi. Now why can’t they move Alex down in the order? Doesn’t pinch hitting for him in the 9th hurt his ego as much as moving him down would? Raul should be playing, not A-Rod.
any doubt sori loses it?
Many doubts. Many doubts.
And when you say ‘losing it’, I am actually guessing you mean ‘his dick in your mouth’, because that’s what just happened….
haha :0 <–:
You should have signed me!!
Aldino gets on my nerves.
What ever his name is.
Andino, being a fucking pest
I keep hearing about how one wants to stay out of Voldemort’s clutches. But I can’t figure out why.
Alright so who didn’t expect a Raul bomb when he came up there?
I expected a double, to be honest.
I know it’s easy to say this after the fact, but I had no doubt whatsoever. Would have bet my life on it.
MFIKY can’t make it easy.
Two cracks for the O’s to go back in front. Ridiculous.
ibanez earned himself a muthafukn spot on the lineup.
Can we clone Ibanez eight times and have an entire lineup of him?
Win or lose Ibanez should be DHing tomorrow and not A-Rod, period.
First of all, how can Michael Kay suggest anything associated with a Yankee Stadium event is free?
Secondly, not to feed the trolls, but A-Rod’s lips really do look purple. I wonder if I need to adjust the color settings.
Lastly, every time I switch on Ernie Johnson something bad happens. I am muting that sucker right now, so everyone chill out.
Jason Nix – True Yankee.
Jayson Nix!!!!!!!!! Defense baby!
Win now please.
There’s some magical shit going on right now and it’s in our favor.
Go. Win. This. Thing.
Raffy is two inches away from giving Baltimore the lead back.
But we’ll take it.
October 10, 2012 at 10:20 pm
Its just bad managing to not hit Ibanez for A Rod against Johnson
I don’t want to hear any more of this bullshit about how the orioles are 75-0 after leading through 8. END THIS GAME NOW!
Come on Teix!!!,
The Orioles only extra inning losses came against the Yankees.
Make it 16-3, and 0-3 against the Yankees. WIN THIS GAME!
didn’t have much confidence for sori there, thank god nix is playing defense.
FUCKING END IT HERE!
If they (the Yankees) pull this off, they win the series.
Buck will have a huge psychological hurdle to jump if the Orioles lose in extra innings for the first time in 15 tries and for the first time all year when leading after 7.
Oh stop flip-flopping already, Nostradamus
Stupid question maybe but…what does “MFIKY” stand for?
Mother Fucker I Kill You
Mother Fucker I’ll Kill You
Not to be confused with MFWIC
MFIKY means Mother Fucker I Kill You.
Wow. Orioles get BABIP fucked for a change.
Win this fucker now.
As Sterling would say “Raul…so cool!” Let’s finish this please. Take no prisoners!
Russell 2nd row Yankee stadium special is a coming…
And running around the bases he’ll be yelling 3/30mil Cashman!
And I would consign on that… If he pulls that off, he’ll have earned it
Walk this sumbitch off Tex
so big tex? big hit? come on! sounds like a great idea!!!
Don’t just try and homer, play some small ball here!
If I have to hear about the ‘bowling ball’ any more, I might lose my fucking mind. That and the ‘frisbee’ are absolutely killing me
I don’t know how any one watches this with the sound on. I would have jumped out the window long ago.
Tex hit a pop up? No way.
Tex, big hit? Nope. Pop up.
seems as if that’s tex’s favorite – the weak shallow pop out
Strike out some more, Kurtis.
Good Lord Granderson.
So we’re back to this, are we?
Damn JOhnson’s pitches have movement.
Granderson struck out? No way.
Walk off Russ is up.
I mean, can Gardy be any worse in CF?
Granderson <or= ARod
Kurtis is on full display tonight man….
Granderson should be benched. He is an automatic out.
Well, that was ineffectual.
So we’ve got DRob for 2 and then Phelps I guess. They’ve got Matusz and then they’ll have to go into their other pitchers.
hey, if someone gets on next inning, raul will get a shot!
Next game Arod bats 8th and Grandy 9th lol
Curtis has some of the quickest, most feeble strikeouts I’ve ever seen.
So sick of Cano and Tex man.
So you hate Robinson cano and Mark Texeira then?
J Nix plays the hero…mark it down.
I know he K’s so much, but it seems that nobody cares about the K anymore. Adam Dunn is making tons of money from the White Sox.
That could be tougher. I really don’t want to do this again, so win this one in the 11th, Yankees.
Gardner hasn’t hit since April but he couldn’t be any worse. Stick him out in CF tomorrow, play Chavy at 3rd and Raul at DH. Can’t be any worse then Grandy and Alex.
Not gonna lie…. Win or lose I was feeling pretty good about being in bed twice this week before midnight… Yet here we are
Hey, look what Smoltz said. Best managerial job yet by Girardi this year.
At least Granderson fell off a cliff BEFORE he was signed to a long term contract.
Granderson K’s. Big surprise.
Dumb fan denying another DeWayne Wise opportunity.
See how fast that ump got over there, though? heh.
Dumb fan. Stick it in his glove.
Asshole. Hand him the ball… Let’s ge the out there, fucking idiot fan
And come on…a dude wearing a Jeter jersey? FOAD.
Fans are so idiotic!
Yay for rested bullpen!
Who gets the 11th for baltimore? Also, was that the 1st k for the Yankees tonight?
No, Kuroda had at least one
Felt like that was the first time I heard the K whistle is all
Yeah i didn’t really notice it. Maybe they have the crowd mic down or something?
TBS sound guys had the field mics turned down to feed the ‘silent fans’ narrative, or turned it up to make it look like $the Stadium is full of people wh give a shit?
Either way I am calling shenanigans.
Heck no. Yankee pitchers have K’d 6 tonight
Unfortunately, it’s Matusz.
The crowd showed up in the 8th…
Granderson, should just not even bat and ask to be an auto out. Meh, same thing I guess.
No Jeter, Mo, Andy.
Let’s see if the ghosts can help these fellas.
The ghost of MOs ACL
i need mark tex to stop being a-rod and earn his paycheck.
why did i click that. it better not be a virus. if it is I got a special set of skills, that’ll make you cry.
Robertson found that missing velocity there.
Wow, jones is tall and DRob is short
D-Rob is a badass.
Three up, three down.
Time to win it.
need to finish this here
Good job Robertson! Now one run!
You wonder if Buck uses Matusz whether Joe will pinch hit Nunez for Chavez.
D-Rob doing work.
Summon Voldemort to the plate this inning, perhaps?
Ok, let’s just get the leadoff man! Don’t think of walkoff homer, play some small ball!
No one on the Yankees is thinking that.
Well, maybe Kevin Long is.
Get it to Raul
This has turned from being one of the most frustrating Yankee games ever to one of the most exciting lol
We probably see Matusz now, no? Ichiro and Raul due up.
Win this now so St Phil of high heat can get some rest for tomorrow’s W.
Windblown triple? These guys are fucking assholes
Yeah, apparently that was the only ball affected by wind tonight.
just got in and i am actually kinda glad i missed most of this game. i dunno that my heart could take all 11 innings.
How the hell do you not pinch-hit Nunez for Chavez with Matusz pitching??
I thought about this.
They don’t get the run in, you got to deal with Nunez in the field in the 12th inning of a real important game… No thanks
Because Nunez can’t field for crap and you don’t want him in the field for potentially several more innings. I agree with this move
do you want nunie at third if they don’t score? i don’t think there is anyone else to play third
What they could do is switch Nix and Nunez.
I don’t want nunez in the field at any position.
They would. But that doesn’t make the situation much better.
Better just not to have Nunez in the field. At all. Anywhere.
Barf bag at my side for these announcers
Turn sound off
Nix? Unlikely hero?
If he gets on base, that’s enough.
Which game ends first this one or Oak-Det?
gardner either has a huge head or a teeny tiny face.
First one of the night.
Heart just stopped.
Well… nix made it interesting, that’s for sure
Ugh that was ball four.
Damnit Nix gotta be taking a pitch there. Swung at ball 4 shit.
Was it ball four?
It was at his eyes. But he struck it WELL
thought that was gone..
Dammit. Nix juuuuuuuust missed a walk-off homer.
Sitting here, saying “don’t swing 3-1, don’t swing 3-1″. That’s why. DIDN”T NEED a HR there. And that fences-swing, predictably, misfired.
They swing for the fences. That is what they do.
Baserunners help too.
How about a single? Please?
Can anyone take a freaking walk!!!!!!!! That was pathetic. So sick of how these clowns approach every at bat. Long needs to go.
To be fair, everybody is looking for the long ball in extras.
Not just in extras though.
fuck, does our offense blow. really need to hold it here to give ibanez and cano a shot
When was the last Yankee baserunner not counting Ibanez’s HR??
I think it was Ichiro after beating out the double play, so Jeter was the last one to reach without making an out.
Shit that was in the 6th inning I think no??
Yep, it was the 6th.
Andino got on in the 10th, but before that, not since the 5th I think. So it goes both ways. Pitching duals kinda work this way
Serious power. DRob better be sharp.
Lord Voldemort is first up next inning.
game over. Reynolds is going yard.
Hasn’t done much in this series.
That was a bum out inning.
Ibanez will live forever Mike? Of course he will, that’s why he made all of those horocruxes.
This ninth inning buzz is really starting to wear off.
So who’s taking Kevin Long’s job next year? How do we change the culture of YS3 hitting?
If Long goes, 5 gets you 10 that ARod’s hitting improves.
I don’t see it happening unless the Yankees allow Rudy Jaramillo to work again with ARod at the Stadium. Since Jaramillo has not been allowed, ARod’s batting has decreased and his injuries have increased. Maybe it has to do with mechanics.
DRob for one more then Phelps. Os have Matusz for one more then who? Strop? If so we’ve got a shot. Ayala?
Prince Fielder…. So good at hitting. That is a bum out, was hoping for 5 games there.
Scherzer is wayyy too good.
Things will need to be broken if the Orioles win another extra innings ballgame.
not one walk today, that is pretty crappy.
cmon drob, then lets do it in the bottom of the 12th
D-Rob’s second inning is never a great experience. Have Joba up, please.
Got to get D-Rob out of the game.
Topping out at around 90 now.
Save the Houdini stuff for the regular season.
WHy didn’t girardi have Nunez pinch hit for Chavez and why did girardi let nix swing away on 3-1And where are all the assholes who attacked me when I said earlier today ibanez should bat 3rd
If Nunez PH, he would have to play the field.
Here’s a guy who’s just looking to homer.
Tex making it look easy tonight
Fucking excellent, Mark.
I dunno about this matchup
Well that shuts me up.
Mark! Absolutely beautiful!
Would it be Joba, Phelps, or Lowe next inning?
Fricken’ muffed pop up.
That better not be costly.
What the fuck?
Oh come on.
you have to be kidding me, horrible
Fucking Christ. It’s like keystone cops in front of the mound…. Get outta the goddam way!
no words for that play… drob with the moronic block
If Reynolds ends up being the winning run, I might just not even bother watching tomorrow.
You’ll still watch – we all hate ourselves just that much.
Phew. D-Rob needs to work on is glove.
where is the infield fly rule when you need it
That’s fine. Get the next out. Reynolds doesn’t have much speed and he didn’t homer.
Great play there by D-Rob, good instincts to end the inning.
holy shit that was not fun to watch
thank god! time to win this shit
DRob needs some PFP.
JEEBUS !!! those were two ugly plays
Wow, that could have been disastrous in all kinds of ways…
At least Dave didn’t fuck up on defense on consecutive plays.
GIVE US PIE!
robertson, nice pitching, horrendous fielding
Robertson making the end of that inning pretty interesting.
Let’s end this now, please. Because I’m not sure how many more times I can hear this Wendy’s ad without throwing my radio out the window.
THAT’LL DO, VOLDY. THAT’LL DO.
Isn’t Matusz the guy the Yanks used to knock around? When did he get good?
When he went to the pen.
I still want to punch that fan for not putting the ball in Swishers glove.
He’s popping out with the ball acting like he’s the man, what a tool.
Drob looking like a middle LB tonight, first the blocking foul on the popup, then the fumble recovery on the muffed grounder, then the little bump-out-of-bounds on the tag there…
Seriously, why is this game becoming an issue with the east shit right now.
It would be nice to get the winning hit off Matusz, break what brittle confidence he has.
You called it brother!
Not liking Ibanez vs. the lefty here.
too bad they didn’t have andruw jones….
You are so full of shit man!!!
There are seven horcuxes in the right field porch. The Dark Lord must go there again and again!
THE COUNT HAS DONE IT AGAIN!
Are you fucking kidding me????
HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!!!!
I DON’T BELIVE IT!!!!!! RAULS!!!!!!!!!
I fucking love Raul Ibanez!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LORD VOLDEMORT AGAIN!!! RESIGN THIS MAN 1 YEAR 10 MIL!!
Long live Voldemort!!!!!
RAUL MOTHERFUCKIN IBANEZ!!
THE FUCKER PROVES ME WRONG AGAIN!
Holy flyin fucks!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH HELLLLLLLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ YEAH!
Babe Ruth…Lou Gehrig….Mickey Mantle…Raul Ibanez.
That was absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy shit holy shit holy shit
I STILL BELIEVE IN VOLDEMORT!!!!!
Batting 4th, Number 27 Raul Ibanez, Number 27
Ok Ibanez, you win…. I give up. I love you. Don’t ever change.
Raul Ibanez saved the season.
Twice. (Or four times, if you want to count every hit.)
AHJAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! RAULLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! YANKEEE FOREVER!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
You cannot the Dark Lord’s existence!!
The word “deny” was supposed to be in there.
But dark magic erased it.
Just like this loss.
Here’s a math equation for you bitches:
RaulMagic > OrioleMagic
Look at that sports coat… Fantastic!
Those trolls left awful fast.
They are too busy crying about the Yanks’ success.
Yeah, what happened to those motherfuckers?
I LOVE YOU IBANEZ!
I am still waitingon the assholes who ridiculed me when I said in the early day Alex thread. That ibanez should bat 3rd ahead of cano
Rip This Joint
Was anyone listening to Sterling? How apeshit dideth he go?
Screaming at the crack of the bat.
Hope Francesa plays it tomorrow.
Quite apeshit at the crack of the bat. Though not as apeshit throughout as I might have expected.
Though maybe that’s because I wasn’t listening very closely, as I was going apeshit myself at the time.
Now that they’ve played the call again on the highlight show, I have to say, it was a pretty good call – very excited, obviously, but not nearly as over-the-top as you would have expected.
Hey where did all the bridge jumpers go?
raul talked us back down…
Beginning to get that 2009 feeling….
Indeed. And as much as people bitch about struggling offenses, that is how the playoffs go. One swing, one play makes the difference.
As soon as Ibanez hit the first home run, I thought, this is not like the last couple of years. The team wasn’t getting wins like this over the past two seasons.
Really reminds me of the Tex walk off shot against the Twins in the ALDS
So he CAN hit lefties – so much for playin the percentages B.S WHOOOO WHOOOO!! Now let’s go to the YES channel for some sane commentary!!!
heh heh…as a DC resident i am going to tune in to the Orioles MASN post game. Should be fun.
Fantastic. It’s why baseball is the king of all specator sports. Nothing like it for inch by inch suspense and drama and then sudden explosions.
Lord Voldemort uses Avada Kedavra on the Baltimore Orioles…
…It’s super effective!
If Raul isn’t batting in the top half of the order tomorrow, there is no justice.
I thought that too. But then I thought that it would be nice to keep him on the bench, so you’d be able to pick which sucking hitter to replace.
Yep, he has been gold off the bench. I doubt he has the same result if he had started the game. It is all about situation and being in the right state of mind.
Holy hell what a game for Raul
yea, ibanez is useless. they should have cut ties with him years ago
This is getting deleted.
I don’t know what else to say. I hated everything about this game except for the stunning, improbable, Aura and Mystique(tm)-esque win – and even that came by way of sheer power… but… but… holy cow, I’m drained after that.
Oh, and how many people still want Cashman fired? You can say what you want about Jesus-Pineda (which isn’t a bust quite yet), but that guy’s moves have saved this team this year.
“that guy’s moves have saved this team this year.”
It’s all relative, with the right moves the Yankees panorama would be different (maybe a sweep), then again, not always means that the right moves will pay off in the end (right moves as in acquiring productive young players, or not trading rookies for non-proven injury prone fastballers).
Though the one I want to see gone is JoeG, too stubborn and too dependent of the binder.
Bucky looks like he’s crying at the press conf
Saunders tomorrow Buck just announced.
Buck Showalter is getting emotional in his post-game interview.
He knows the Orioles have to play again tomorrow right?
He’s remembering his ’95 alds loss against the mariners – he’s having flashbacks lol
cal ripkin is crying in a bathroom right now
That was the most amazing baseball experience of my life.
I’m still in shock… HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!
What Raul did was absolutely incredible tonight. Gotta give a lot of credit to Hiroki and the pen though too. They kept us in it the entire time and made that possible. Still shaking from what just happened.
Best game I’ve ever gone to. Not close. At all. Went from horrible, to amazing, to nervewracking, to running around hugging random people. Didn’t even watch him round the bases, was too excited to think.
Some of my thoughts on game 3. Unreal. One of my favorite wins of all-time.
