Sorry to be late. Phil Hughes faces the Twins, who are putting Brian Duensing on the bump for the block.
68 comments… add one
Phil looked great in the first…1-2-3.
Leadoff single wasted per usual…Swish, Tex and ARod pop out weakly.
We normally don’t score until about the 6th anyway.
HIP HIP…RBI!!!!! 1-0!!!!
Hughes is dealing. Wow. 3 sick innings so far…
2 OUT RBI SINGLE FOR TEX!!!!! 2-0!!!!
THAMES HITS ONE OUT!!!! 4-0 CHAMPS!!!!
Have a good one Duensing…valiant effort.
LET’S ROLL THESE FOOLS!!!!
Hew Krueg – not many commenters tonight, huh?
Lovely! Go Grandy!
Nope…just you and I so far AD! It’s cool…hopefully all the boys are out getting rowdy!
Bullshit. That was a ball.
Certainly not a swing…
Tex hitting from the left side this time. Watch out fans in the 2nd deck in RF!!!!
That’s it for that pitcher. Next!
Thought Gardenhire was taking him out . . . oh well.
Terrible fucking call…fuck.
Nasty hair Hughes is looking excellent.
Are these f**kin’ announcers rooting for the Twinkies or what??
Hughes getting squeezed all of the sudden???
Everyone roots against us in the media it seems…fuck them. Look at the lack of success these idiots had against us. We basically ended Smoltz career last year and Darling? Garbage.
So true . . .
PHRANCHISE IS KILLING IT!!!!!
So much for that “rally!”
Come on Alex . . . let’s start hittin’
Nice catch, Swish.
Cheap hit . . .
Mauer actually got a hit…weak single though. Talk about overrated.
Bear down, Phil . . .
Ye-e-e-e-e-s! Strike three!
Mauer is pretty overrated. He’s like a catcher version of Wade Boggs. The power last year was a fluke. Now, that said, he’s one of the top 3 catchers in the majors at this point and I would love to have him on my team. Just not the fearsome hitter people make him out to be.
7 scoreless innings…fucking awesome.
I’m just noticing how Phil looks like he’s getting chubby. Not even close to being at Sabathia levels, though. Oh well. What I really came back to say is that as much as I hate Joe Buck and Tim McCarver (who are with Joe Morgan in my unholy trinity of awfulness in broadcasting), if FOX doesn’t play Kid Rock every single commercial break then I will welcome them back with open arms.
I just try and back in the glow of knowing that even the broadcasters get pissed at our awesomeness like every other hater. Fuck them all. Go Yankees. :)
…and Phranchise isn’t getting fat, he’s just bowed up with awesomeness!!!!
I hope Tampa Bay takes the Rangers to the full 5 games but it’s probable it will be NY vs. Texas in the next round. Tough series but I pick the Yanks in 6 (fingers crossed)!
SWISHALICIOUS!!!!!! 6-0!!!!!! GET OUT THE FUCKING BROOMS!!!!
Ever since I changed hats and jerseys we have dominated them…your welcome boys. ;)
Pitcher #4 . . .
Lay the WOOD to them Kerry!!!! Awesome.
I love how we now have an automatic 8th inning guy. Kerry Wood, I’m sorry for everything I said about you when we traded for you. You did have an ERA over 6 and a WHIP around 2, but it was because you were with an awful team and can only be truly motivated by an atmosphere of success. Right?
BFD – one run . . .
It was more important for Wood to pitch well the other night…it’s cool.
TBS getting a boner for us to blow the lead…you wish fucking assholes.
Come on, Kerry!
Good show – 1 more!
You suck Kubel!!!
Great job BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!
Kubel looks like a cross between Corky from “Life Goes On” and a french bulldog…
How about that!!!
ROBERTSON!!!!!! MINNY CHOKES AGAIN!!!!!
Really, it was probably best that some of our other guys got some work in anyway. We bat, then Rivera to close the 9th. They’re not going to let anyone else finish this series, especially with a six (!!) day break.
Are these announcers crying in their beers, or what?
Fuck them. :)
“WHO’S YOUR DADDY” chant in the Stadium…hilarious.
Curtis is so awesome…
It’s MO time!
SIT DOWN THOME!!!!! 1 out.
YANKEES WIN THE ALDS…THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!!
BRING ON THE ALCS!!!!!!
S-W-E-E-E-E-E-E-P! HOW SWEET IT IS!!!!
GREAT GAME – HAVE A GOOD NIGHT GUYS – I’M OUTTA HERE . . .
Yeaaaahh YANKEES!! WOOO!!
Fuck Pavano, fuck Smoltz (how freaking biased is he because he knows what its like to be dominated by the Yanks?)
Fuck this dude’s salmon colored suit
Dominating performance by the Yankees. The whole team was on for this series. Let’s go get whoever is next.
See you fellas in 6 days.
