Raul Ibanez! homers twice in Game Three walk-off win
  • xnyles

    Raul The dirty bird.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Shutdown inning please.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    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.

  • yanks

    any doubt sori loses it?

    • MannyGeee

      Many doubts. Many doubts.

    • MannyGeee

      And when you say ‘losing it’, I am actually guessing you mean ‘his dick in your mouth’, because that’s what just happened….

      • Rahul

        haha :0 <–:

  • Johnny Damon

    You should have signed me!!

  • xnyles

    Aldino gets on my nerves.

    • xnyles

      What ever his name is.

  • MannyGeee

    Andino, being a fucking pest

  • David N

    I keep hearing about how one wants to stay out of Voldemort’s clutches. But I can’t figure out why.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/Paddock9652 Stratman9652

    Alright so who didn’t expect a Raul bomb when he came up there?

    • MannyGeee

      I expected a double, to be honest.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/Paddock9652 Stratman9652

        I know it’s easy to say this after the fact, but I had no doubt whatsoever. Would have bet my life on it.

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

    MFIKY can’t make it easy.

    Two cracks for the O’s to go back in front. Ridiculous.

  • youngmanalex

    ibanez earned himself a muthafukn spot on the lineup.

  • BJ

    Can we clone Ibanez eight times and have an entire lineup of him?

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    Win or lose Ibanez should be DHing tomorrow and not A-Rod, period.

  • Deep Thoughts

    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.

  • Cy Pettitte

    MFIKY!

  • Tom

    Hell yeah!

  • Pete

    Jason Nix – True Yankee.

  • MannyGeee

    Jayson Nix!!!!!!!!! Defense baby!

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Lucky.

    Win now please.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    There’s some magical shit going on right now and it’s in our favor.

  • David N

    Go. Win. This. Thing.

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

    Raffy is two inches away from giving Baltimore the lead back.

    Lucky fucker.

    But we’ll take it.

  • Hans Moleman

    Beautiful

  • Mike N

    MFIKY AGAIN!

  • Alexh

    I THAAAAANKYOU…

    Its just bad managing to not hit Ibanez for A Rod against Johnson

  • Ethan

    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!

  • Countryclub

    Come on Teix!!!,

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

    The Orioles only extra inning losses came against the Yankees.

    Make it 16-3, and 0-3 against the Yankees. WIN THIS GAME!

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    didn’t have much confidence for sori there, thank god nix is playing defense.

    FUCKING END IT HERE!

  • The Real Greg

    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.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      Oh stop flip-flopping already, Nostradamus

  • JMK

    Stupid question maybe but…what does “MFIKY” stand for?

    • stanley a

      Mother Fucker I Kill You

    • OMG! Bagels!

      Mother Fucker I Kill You

    • https://twitter.com/#!/Paddock9652 Stratman9652

      Mother Fucker I’ll Kill You

    • JMK

      Ah, thanks.

    • Captain_Turbo

      Not to be confused with MFWIC

    • Mikhel

      MFIKY means Mother Fucker I Kill You.

  • stanley a

    Wow. Orioles get BABIP fucked for a change.

    Win this fucker now.

  • Tino!_24

    As Sterling would say “Raul…so cool!” Let’s finish this please. Take no prisoners!

  • Tom

    Russell 2nd row Yankee stadium special is a coming…

    And running around the bases he’ll be yelling 3/30mil Cashman!

    • MannyGeee

      And I would consign on that… If he pulls that off, he’ll have earned it

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Walk this sumbitch off Tex

  • warren

    so big tex? big hit? come on! sounds like a great idea!!!

  • Ethan

    Don’t just try and homer, play some small ball here!

  • MannyGeee

    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

    • OMG! Bagels!

      I don’t know how any one watches this with the sound on. I would have jumped out the window long ago.

  • stanley a

    Tex hit a pop up? No way.

  • FachoinaNYY

    raul

  • BJ

    Tex, big hit? Nope. Pop up.

    • 4 pitches

      seems as if that’s tex’s favorite – the weak shallow pop out

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

    Strike out some more, Kurtis.

  • ArchStanton

    Good Lord Granderson.

  • David N

    So we’re back to this, are we?

  • The Real Greg

    Damn JOhnson’s pitches have movement.

  • stanley a

    Granderson struck out? No way.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Walk off Russ is up.

  • Hans Moleman

    I mean, can Gardy be any worse in CF?

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    fu granderson

  • Belphegor

    Granderson <or= ARod

  • MannyGeee

    Kurtis is on full display tonight man….

  • Widget

    Granderson should be benched. He is an automatic out.

  • Mike N

    Well, that was ineffectual.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    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.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    hey, if someone gets on next inning, raul will get a shot!

  • BigBlueAL

    Next game Arod bats 8th and Grandy 9th lol

  • SammySosasBleachingCream

    Curtis has some of the quickest, most feeble strikeouts I’ve ever seen.

  • Karl Krawfid

    So sick of Cano and Tex man.

    • The Real Greg

      So you hate Robinson cano and Mark Texeira then?

  • Adam

    J Nix plays the hero…mark it down.

  • The Real Greg

    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.

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

    Well…

    Hardy-Chavez-Jones

    That could be tougher. I really don’t want to do this again, so win this one in the 11th, Yankees.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    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.

  • MannyGeee

    Not gonna lie…. Win or lose I was feeling pretty good about being in bed twice this week before midnight… Yet here we are

  • The Real Greg

    Hey, look what Smoltz said. Best managerial job yet by Girardi this year.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula

    At least Granderson fell off a cliff BEFORE he was signed to a long term contract.

  • toad

    Granderson K’s. Big surprise.

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

    Dumb fan denying another DeWayne Wise opportunity.

    • Pete

      See how fast that ump got over there, though? heh.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Dumb fan. Stick it in his glove.

  • MannyGeee

    Asshole. Hand him the ball… Let’s ge the out there, fucking idiot fan

    • Deep Thoughts

      And come on…a dude wearing a Jeter jersey? FOAD.

  • Ethan

    Fans are so idiotic!

  • Pete

    Yay for rested bullpen!

  • MannyGeee

    Who gets the 11th for baltimore? Also, was that the 1st k for the Yankees tonight?

    • Ethan

      No, Kuroda had at least one

      • MannyGeee

        Felt like that was the first time I heard the K whistle is all

        • Ethan

          Yeah i didn’t really notice it. Maybe they have the crowd mic down or something?

          • MannyGeee

            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.

    • The Real Greg

      Heck no. Yankee pitchers have K’d 6 tonight

    • Hans Moleman

      Hopefully Strop

      • David N

        Unfortunately, it’s Matusz.

  • MannyGeee

    The crowd showed up in the 8th…

  • Athenian

    Granderson, should just not even bat and ask to be an auto out. Meh, same thing I guess.

  • OMG! Bagels!

    No Jeter, Mo, Andy.

    Let’s see if the ghosts can help these fellas.

    • MannyGeee

      The ghost of MOs ACL

  • youngmanalex

    i need mark tex to stop being a-rod and earn his paycheck.

  • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula

    Robertson found that missing velocity there.

  • MannyGeee

    Wow, jones is tall and DRob is short

  • stanley a

    D-Rob is a badass.

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

    Three up, three down.

    Time to win it.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    need to finish this here

  • Mike N

    Good job Robertson! Now one run!

  • The Real Greg

    You wonder if Buck uses Matusz whether Joe will pinch hit Nunez for Chavez.

  • David N

    D-Rob doing work.

    Summon Voldemort to the plate this inning, perhaps?

  • Ethan

    Ok, let’s just get the leadoff man! Don’t think of walkoff homer, play some small ball!

    • OMG! Bagels!

      No one on the Yankees is thinking that.

      • Defensive Indifference

        Well, maybe Kevin Long is.

      • MannyGeee

        Ever

  • Hall and Nokes

    Get it to Raul

  • BigBlueAL

    This has turned from being one of the most frustrating Yankee games ever to one of the most exciting lol

  • Adam

    We probably see Matusz now, no? Ichiro and Raul due up.

  • CS Yankee

    Win this now so St Phil of high heat can get some rest for tomorrow’s W.

  • Coco

    Windblown triple? These guys are fucking assholes

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      Yeah, apparently that was the only ball affected by wind tonight.

  • captain kiwi

    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.

  • BigBlueAL

    How the hell do you not pinch-hit Nunez for Chavez with Matusz pitching??

    • The Real Greg

      I thought about this.

    • MannyGeee

      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

    • Ethan

      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

    • Bartolo’s Colon

      do you want nunie at third if they don’t score? i don’t think there is anyone else to play third

      • The Real Greg

        What they could do is switch Nix and Nunez.

        • Ethan

          I don’t want nunez in the field at any position.

        • Need Pitching & Hitting

          They would. But that doesn’t make the situation much better.

        • David N

          Better just not to have Nunez in the field. At all. Anywhere.

  • Tino!_24

    Barf bag at my side for these announcers

    • OMG! Bagels!

      Turn sound off

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Nix? Unlikely hero?

    • Pete

      If he gets on base, that’s enough.

  • VT Yankee Fan

    Which game ends first this one or Oak-Det?

  • captain kiwi

    gardner either has a huge head or a teeny tiny face.

  • Mike N

    Loud out.

    • MannyGeee

      First one of the night.

  • Pete

    Heart just stopped.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    wtp

  • MannyGeee

    Well… nix made it interesting, that’s for sure

  • Adam

    Ugh that was ball four.

  • BigBlueAL

    Damnit Nix gotta be taking a pitch there. Swung at ball 4 shit.

  • ArchStanton

    Was it ball four?

    • MannyGeee

      It was at his eyes. But he struck it WELL

  • Hummingbird S.

    thought that was gone..

  • stanley a

    Dammit. Nix juuuuuuuust missed a walk-off homer.

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

    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.

    • OMG! Bagels!

      They swing for the fences. That is what they do.

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

        Baserunners help too.

  • Mike N

    C’mon, ICHIRO!!!

  • Dan

    How about a single? Please?

  • Widget

    Can anyone take a freaking walk!!!!!!!! That was pathetic. So sick of how these clowns approach every at bat. Long needs to go.

    • The Real Greg

      To be fair, everybody is looking for the long ball in extras.

      • JLC 776

        Not just in extras though.

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

    Fucking hell.

  • Mike N

    Crapola!

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    fuck, does our offense blow. really need to hold it here to give ibanez and cano a shot

  • BigBlueAL

    When was the last Yankee baserunner not counting Ibanez’s HR??

    • ArchStanton

      I think it was Ichiro after beating out the double play, so Jeter was the last one to reach without making an out.

      • BigBlueAL

        Shit that was in the 6th inning I think no??

        • ArchStanton

          Yep, it was the 6th.

        • MannyGeee

          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

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

    Wieters-Thome-Reynolds.

    Serious power. DRob better be sharp.

  • Captain_Turbo

    Lord Voldemort is first up next inning.

  • Widget

    game over. Reynolds is going yard.

    • The Real Greg

      Hasn’t done much in this series.

    • Captain_Turbo

      Uh, nope.

  • MannyGeee

    That was a bum out inning.

  • Total Dominication

    Ibanez will live forever Mike? Of course he will, that’s why he made all of those horocruxes.

  • JLC 776

    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?

    • TomH

      If Long goes, 5 gets you 10 that ARod’s hitting improves.

      • Mikhel

        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.

  • Eddard reboot v.1.0

    DRob for one more then Phelps. Os have Matusz for one more then who? Strop? If so we’ve got a shot. Ayala?

  • MannyGeee

    Prince Fielder…. So good at hitting. That is a bum out, was hoping for 5 games there.

    • BJ

      Scherzer is wayyy too good.

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

    Things will need to be broken if the Orioles win another extra innings ballgame.

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    not one walk today, that is pretty crappy.

    cmon drob, then lets do it in the bottom of the 12th

  • Hummingbird S.

    D-Rob’s second inning is never a great experience. Have Joba up, please.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Got to get D-Rob out of the game.

    Topping out at around 90 now.

  • TomH

    Save the Houdini stuff for the regular season.

  • Mick taylor

    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

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      If Nunez PH, he would have to play the field.

  • The Real Greg

    Here’s a guy who’s just looking to homer.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    Nice play.

  • MannyGeee

    Tex making it look easy tonight

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

    Fucking excellent, Mark.

  • TomH

    I dunno about this matchup

    • TomH

      Well that shuts me up.

  • Hummingbird S.

    Mark! Absolutely beautiful!

  • Dan

    Would it be Joba, Phelps, or Lowe next inning?

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      Probably Joba.

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

    Fricken’ muffed pop up.

    That better not be costly.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    What the fuck?

  • ArchStanton

    Oh come on.

  • Cy Pettitte

    really?

  • Adam

    Ugh.

  • David N

    Oh man….

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    you have to be kidding me, horrible

  • MannyGeee

    Fucking Christ. It’s like keystone cops in front of the mound…. Get outta the goddam way!

  • Pete

    Jesus Montero….

  • Hummingbird S.

    no words for that play… drob with the moronic block

  • stanley a

    Shit happens

    If Reynolds ends up being the winning run, I might just not even bother watching tomorrow.

    • JLC 776

      You’ll still watch – we all hate ourselves just that much.

    • stanley a

      Phew. D-Rob needs to work on is glove.

  • David N

    And…exhale.

  • jon

    where is the infield fly rule when you need it

  • The Real Greg

    That’s fine. Get the next out. Reynolds doesn’t have much speed and he didn’t homer.

  • Adam

    Great play there by D-Rob, good instincts to end the inning.

  • Cy Pettitte

    holy shit that was not fun to watch

  • Hummingbird S.

    thank god! time to win this shit

  • Need Pitching & Hitting

    DRob needs some PFP.

  • sciota

    JEEBUS !!! those were two ugly plays

  • Pete

    Wow, that could have been disastrous in all kinds of ways…

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

    At least Dave didn’t fuck up on defense on consecutive plays.

    Ibanez-Cano-Swisher

    GIVE US PIE!

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    robertson, nice pitching, horrendous fielding

  • BigBlueAL

    Robertson making the end of that inning pretty interesting.

  • David N

    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.

    • David N

      THAT’LL DO, VOLDY. THAT’LL DO.

  • TomH

    Isn’t Matusz the guy the Yanks used to knock around? When did he get good?

    • The Real Greg

      When he went to the pen.

  • TampaYankee

    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.

  • MannyGeee

    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.

  • Hans Moleman

    It would be nice to get the winning hit off Matusz, break what brittle confidence he has.

    • Tino!_24

      You called it brother!

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

    Not liking Ibanez vs. the lefty here.

    • Hans Moleman

      Screaming at the crack of the bat.

      • Pat D

        Hope Francesa plays it tomorrow.

    • David N

      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.

  • MikeM

    Hey where did all the bridge jumpers go?

    • jm

      raul talked us back down…

  • BigBlueAL

    Beginning to get that 2009 feeling….

    • Adam

      Indeed. And as much as people bitch about struggling offenses, that is how the playoffs go. One swing, one play makes the difference.

    • Tom Q

      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.

    • Ethan

      Really reminds me of the Tex walk off shot against the Twins in the ALDS

  • Tino!_24

    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!!!

  • Adam

    heh heh…as a DC resident i am going to tune in to the Orioles MASN post game. Should be fun.

  • TomH

    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!

  • Captain_Turbo

    If Raul isn’t batting in the top half of the order tomorrow, there is no justice.

    • David N

      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.

      • Laz

        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.

  • Anthony

    Holy hell what a game for Raul

  • Mike Axisa

    yea, ibanez is useless. they should have cut ties with him years ago

    • Pat D

      This is getting deleted.

  • JLC 776

    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.

  • JLC 776

    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.

    • Mikhel

      “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

  • Adam

    Saunders tomorrow Buck just announced.

  • stanley a

    Buck Showalter is getting emotional in his post-game interview.

    He knows the Orioles have to play again tomorrow right?

    • Tino!_24

      He’s remembering his ’95 alds loss against the mariners – he’s having flashbacks lol

  • jm

    cal ripkin is crying in a bathroom right now

  • Total Dominication

    That was the most amazing baseball experience of my life.

  • Mikhel

    I’m still in shock… HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!

  • So Cool

    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.

  • G

    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.
