Title says it all. Comment here.
joint gamer SF? Really? That’s just lazy bro… ;)
Come on Pettitte…time for a quality start? Please???
Robert’s hits one to the warning track…Damon actually caught it, which was cool.
And Markakis rocks the first pitch he see’s from sorry-ass Pettitte into the bullpen…0-1. game over. You suck Pettitte. Just retire already.
Not as lazy as my idea… i was going to do one for the whole week.
Plus, I was going to trump Paul with my newest statistical breakdown: the answer is 42.
Andy only gave up 1 run in the 1st…amazing.
You guys are slacking AG… ;)
Alright…we need about 10 runs with Pettitte pitching….let’s go boys!!! BRING IT CAPTAIN CLUTCH!!!
Markakis is a monster…wish we had him. Couple years?
We’re in business…Tex follows up Damon’s single with one of his own! 1st and 3rd with 1 out for ARod!!!
Now is the dog days of our dissed-content.
Making this scrub throw a lot of pitches though…that’s good. Godzilla with a chance for a RBI…
Speaking of this scrub…walks the bases loaded for….Cano. Crap. he sucks with 2 outs AND with the bases loaded. I expect him to roll over a pitch to the Roberts for the ground out…
FULL COUNT!!! No where to put him…
Cano swings at ball four…JUST got a piece. Let’s try again.
Fouls off another pitch…that one was a strike.
35 pitches for the scrub so far…nice.
Cano flies out to LF…big surprise. You suck Cano.
Pettitte back to the mound to give up some more runs…I can’t even watch.
ESPN: “Steve McNair had about double the legal limit of alcohol when he was murdered.” WTF does that mean? Double the legal limit of what? Drive the bed to Taco Bell? Get shot? Cheat on his wife? If he was more sober he could have legally driven away from the bullets? Gah. It would be so funny if only it wasn’t so unfunny.
1-2-3 for Andy…that’s more like it!
Hinskie is a BEAST!!!! 1-1!!!
It’s the whole conservative mindset of this country…i.e. if he wasn’t such a sinner (alcohol and adultery) he’d still be alive. Disgusting.
AG, I’ll give you the thumbs-up you deserve for the Douglas Adams reference!
These 8:00 starts sure do suck. I mean they’re not as bad as the west coast games, but geez, let’s have some Red Sox baseball already!
Let’s not Ath…let’s not. :)
Huff drops a pop fly near the Yankee bullpen…hopefully that comes back to bite them! 2 outs with Jeter on 1st…
Nope. BS called 3rd strike that was both low AND outside…
Pettitte with the wild pitch…2nd and no outs. About to give the lead right back…Pettitte-style.
can’t even strike out the #9 hitter…pathetic.
Izturis fouls off every weak-ass Pettitte pitch…4 in a row so far.
Ellsbury back leading off, and immediately whiffs. Leadoff spot a black hole for the Sox it seems.
3-4-5 hitters go down with a whimper to the scrub…
Pedroia out on a comebacker. 2 down quickly. I have a feeling I won’t be paying much attention to this game, other than to see how Smoltz is doing.
Youk singles as Murphy misreads the ball off the bat.
Papi! Clubbed to center, misses a homer by a foot. Youk scores. 1-0 Sox, bad luck that it isn’t 2-0.
Actually, make that 1/2 a foot, at most. BARELY not a homer. Dang.
Bay lines to short. Average plummeting. Bad luck BABIP there, though.
Jesus, missed a homer by a foot.
Cano swings at the first pitch and promptly pops out to LF…great job, not. He has so much ability but just cannot put it together yet…aggravating.
Hinskie K’s…this game sucks.
1st and 3rd with 1 out…Pettitte about to blow this game wide open with his sh-t pitching per usual.
K for Andy…ONE MORE OUT MAN!!!! COME ON!!!!
3 outs…gets Roberts to pop out to Melky. Thank science.
I am so sick and tired of watching these no name scrub pitchers just mow us down…
Big DP keeps it 1-1…BO-RING!!!! TIME TO SCORE SOME RUNS!!!
Smoltz looking good.
I gotta say that while I’d rather the Yanks just be winning, I really love the slow game-long tension-building of a pitchers’ duel.
This guy is just making us look foolish…this is ridiculous????
Holy shit, great grab with the throwing hand by Millwood. Glad he’s not hurt there.
Yanks not even working the count. Bah.
AP DP. Nice.
I am the complete opposite IH…give me HR’s and high scoring affairs any day. I am falling asleep watching this…hopefully someone in pinstripes does something with a bat soon???
But the great thing with these games is that when the tie-breaking run finally comes, it’s just huge – massive tension-release after 7-8 innings of gradually ratcheting-up of tension. And the defense has been pretty solid. And we’re into the O’s bullpen…let’s see what we can do here. Wouldn’t object to Jorge pinch-hitting for Molina when his spot comes up 3rd this inning…
I don’t mind it either way as long as the Yanks win.. =)
Yeah…it is fun when they finally break through, you’re right…of course the O’s could just as easily the longer Pettitte stays in…
Good point Lar…
ARE WE EVER GOING TO GET A HIT??? LET ALONE SCORE ANY RUNS???
Another brilliant 1-2-3 innings for the Bombers…
Yanks with a harmless 1-2-3. I love the shot of Mo just chilling in the pen while Hughes is in the back throwing a ball to himself..
Pettitte still in…he is going to blow it.
Watching both games at once tonight, with my first night of HD.
Best night Smoltz has had, even though he’s never looked so old before……
Getting YES via MLB-EE – another first.
Kinda weird – they really do have something called “Yankeeography”?
Gotta get used to it – it seems excessively precious just now!
Get pettitte out
This is fun…. I get to be in the Sox gamer but also to enjoy Kreug’s hysteria. These joint gamers are great.
If kreug wasn’t here, somebody would have to impersonate him.
AP gave us a good game, but maybe hung in there just a little too long. That said, the Yanks have not hit today, and they have been shutdown, if not for good (and lucky) pitching..
I thought pettitte would be in batter-to-batter, but no. And now the Yanks are in a hole. That was one batter too many – and we all saw it coming before it did. Let’s see what coke has in the tank.
…and he did. 2nd and 3rd now with 2 outs. Coke to try and get Markakis.
Lowell’s hip must feel OK to try and score on that play – and be out by that much.
Shit, Lowell tries to score from first and is gunned down. GREAT tag by Salty. Hopefully Lowell isn’t hurting after that.
Teixiera with a good, huge heads up play to throw out the runner at home. Not sure if he could’ve gotten the double play, but I’ll take this any day..
TEX WITH THE GREAT PLAY!!!! SCOOPS THE GROUNDER AND GUNS IT HOME WHERE JOSE TAGS HIM FOR THE 2ND OUT!!!! YEEESSSSSS!!!!
COME ON PHIL…ONE MORE!!!!
That was just awesome. I don’t give a crap what anyone says about Tex as an average fielder – he turns in great play after great play. That was huge. And nice job by Molina.
And the tension builds…
WHAT A PLAY AGAIN!!!! Someone else describe it…I’m too mentally exhausted and I think the neighbors heard me yelling…
Two great plays at the plate. Awesome. How can you not prefer this over launch-fests!?!?!
Woah, did Roberts try to steal home on a passed ball? Goddamnit!
Did not bringing Posada save a run? Molina is a better defender, of course.
Wow, a wild pitch and a throw out at home plate. I have the sound off, but it seems like the runner missed the plate, and was tagged out by Coke. Yanks got out of that one luckily..
It is pretty sweet IH…NOW SCORE SOME F-CKING RUNS BOYS!!!!
UNLEASH THE FURY!!!!
Top of the order….CAPTAIN CLUTCH TIME!!!!
Roberts looked like he beat the throw, but was a little too slick in trying to get around the tag and missed the plate, maybe.
No sound though, so someone else might be able to give a better description..
The Yanks probably don’t deserve what happen, but will certainly take it! Go Yanks, win this thing!
I love Coke coming in head first. And Roberts ALMOST snuck the trailing foot across the plate but not quite.
Time for Tex or ARod to launch one.
He absolutely missed the plate Lar…and Coke had his glove right on the plate if he would have slide in straight…
Someone? Anyone? A hit please? HELLO McFLY???
2 outs. Pathetic. Nice job Damon you hack.
Ya, looking at the replay again, it’s clear he missed it – the initial angles wasn’t as good. I’m not paying attention 100%, because I’m actually on a conference call right now! ;) People heard me fist pumping over the phone!
Just swinging at every sh-t pitch all game long…this SUCKS!!!
Let’s go Teixiera.
…back to the dugout maybe.
Teixiera popped a 2-0 pitch. Sudden death here we go.
Have not gotten a hit since the 2nd…also put in Flusher for defense???? Are you serious???
Coke nails Jones…1st with no outs. GAME.
Yanks keep going out with a freaking whimper. And FAST. On the (second) play at home, Roberts missed with his hand and he was tagged on the thigh barely before his foot slid across. I don’t know if you could say they don’t deserve it. I mean, their bats don’t, but their pitching and defense has been great. And yeah, keeping Molina (against my urging) probably helped save one or both those runs.
And freaking Coke hits the leadoff man. That right after a wild pitch ended the last inning. Keep your head in the game meat!
The umps blew a call, but really shouldn’t have gave them a chance to. Potential winning run at first.
Great shoestring catch by Melky!!! whew. DP still on…
Melky barely reaches it. I’d really rather see Melky in right and Gardner in center.
And here comes Ace.
Coke out…ACE IN!!!! ACE IS THE TRUTH!!!
Lined one up the middle, and barely stayed up to be caught by Melky. I thought it was a single off the bat, but good read by Melky staying on it.
Mora is dangerous. Base stolen. Rare bad toss by Molina. Good save by cano.
stolen base…not good. winning run on 2nd. At least it wasn’t HIp HIp behind the plate chucking it into CF again…
Since when do the Rangers have a great defense?
And Jones took second. That’s what happens when you hit the leadoff man. Might’ve got him with a better throw.
That wasn’t a bad throw…that was a close play! Molina has a cannon.
2 outs. LET’S GO ACE!!!!
Mora pops out, and two outs, and Jones on 2nd.
They’re going to walk Scott to get to the rookie Reimold with two outs.
IBB to Markakis. Ace almost threw the ball away on the first pitch-out. That would have been smooth. Here we go with 2 on and the rookie phenom up…
Darn these are close pitches. Sorry – confused Scott for Markakis there.
ACE IS A MONSTER!!!!
COME ON AROD!!! END THIS FIASCO!!!!
I admit I was scared seeing that ball off the bat. But Ace do get out of this one.
Tension ratchets up…this one goes to Eee-leven. And Ace induces the weak pop-up which for some reason looked like a jacked HR to me off the bat. Walk-off time – come on! Melky is our walk-off master.
It’s going to have to be Melky. It is foretold.
Also – Smoltz is averaging about 90 on his fastball. Is that normal for him at this stage of his career?
I’ll say that Smoltz was a nice pickup for Boston. He sure would look good going for the Yankees tomorrow instead of Sergio Mitre. Kudos to Theo on that one.
IH – he looked like he got all of that one, but thankfully not.. haha..
ARod does nothing.
Matsui ends it!! YESSSS! Domo arigato Godzilla!! Great game.
MAT EFFING SUI!!!!!!!!
YANKEES WIN….THHEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!!!! GODZILLA!!!!
Wow, three straight 2-1 wins. That’s kind of cool, although it does depress the Pythag a bit.
Oh f*ck you Matsui. I was just telling a YF friend of mine today that you were done, and would be traded at the deadline.
How many goddamn walk-offs is that?
NYYs win with a Matsui walkoff
So what else is new?
Yanks win on two solo HRs again. This one was a no-doubter though.
Matsui eats pie, loves it. Hahaha.
PIE TO THE FACE FOR GODZILLA!!! I love it…
9th walkoff of the season Ath…
Three 2-1 victories in a row. Pettitte was superb, the defense by Tex, Molina, Coke, and Melky was excellent, and Matsui finally puts us all out of our misery. Let’s go Rangers.
Sorry for the mini-Rangers-root their SFs. Forgot for a moment that this is a shared gamer thread.
I’ll try not to be brought immediately back to earth by the thought of Mitre starting tomorrow…
Fun thread Lar, Krueg, et al…
Yep, maybe even krueg will admit it was a fun game! =)
They openly root against us IH…don’t apologize!!!
LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!
SUPER fun game…since we won. If we had lost, totally different story.
IH, ya have to be who ya are……its OK
People are too sensitive about that IMHO.
The great thing about YFSF is that it ISN’T NYYfans……
And as I say this, TX ties it up.
….and the wheels start to come off of the Smoltzmobile…..
Wow Michael Young really turned on that homer. 2-2.
Smoltz looks like he’s pitching a good game, results only. I think I’ll take this start any day, up to now anyhow.
(Of course, if he did that against O’s, it would still be a tied game.. Yanks really got to start hitting again..)
Walk off by Matsui!!!
Awesome win some great defense, pitching, and timely hitting…
Someone help Ken Singleton accept baldness and DUMP that hideous tupee. Hideous.
I would’ve also loved it if I could’ve watched the game with sound. This was quite a game, haha..
My bads if I reverse jinxed, though not intentional. Murphy really went down and got that one though..
Ah well, Smoltz was doing well until the 5th inning. Texas does have a dynamite offense in Arlington.
Smoltz looks like he’s pitching a good game, results only. I think I’ll take this start any day, up to now anyhow.
Parr for the course by Smolt(z)?
And bad wordplay brings bad karma – 5-2 TX.
Well, when I said that it was 2 ER, 5 IP, and I just looked up his line. Ya, totally my bads.
Goddamnit, Murphy makes it 5-2. Smoltz was phenomenal before this inning.
Chr*st, another one?
Okay, he’s done. Time for the bullpen White Flag, Tony.
Now Salty. 6-2.
I’m happy to root against whoever is ahead of us in the standings, but usually wouldn’t do it on their gamethread.
Anyway, no matter what happens in Arlington the rest of the night, Boston sends Beckett to the mound tomorrow and we send….Sergio Mitre…
This one is over. We’ve hit out allotment of two runs for the night.
First place will be sweet but short yet again IH…if only the Yankees could win a game against Boston.
Probably should have yanked Smoltz after the Hamilton double. I’m so smart in hindsight.
I can tell who’s up even without my glasses……..they show the ball going into the crowd only in foul ground for the RS.
Another great defensive play by Texas. This is getting annoying as hell.
