The Only Thing: Yanks-Rangers ALCS Gamer IV

Phil Hughes faces Texas, who send Colby Lewis to the mound in Arlington.  Comment away. (I know it isn’t the fourth game, but it worked when I screwed it up last time.)

  • Game 6 krueg-ku:
    Texas is lame
    They don’t have the balls to close
    Let’s do this Yankees
    20 minutes.

  • Possible rain delay? I hope they don’t start the game, then have a LONG rain delay…they should just wait.
    That way I can watch the Sabres game first…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 7:48 pm
  • Watching the Sabes now.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 7:51 pm
  • Don’t tell me anything…I’m DVR’ing it. :)

    krueg October 22, 2010, 7:51 pm
  • sheesh.. buffalo looks like they are asleep. Ottawa was all over them after that last face.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 7:52 pm
  • What was that, three minutes where buffalo couldn’t cross the senators’ blue line?

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 7:54 pm
  • DUDE!

    krueg October 22, 2010, 7:55 pm
  • Oops.. sorry Krueg… Just saw your request for no spoilers. :)
    heheh
    I’m just excited to be able to watch me some Buffalo hockey.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 7:57 pm
  • This is me so not talking about the ice right now.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:05 pm
  • 81 degrees in Texas with the sun down, and Craig Sager’s suit channels Violet Beauregard as Colby Lewis gets ready to get this game underway.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:11 pm
  • Jeter first-pitch sharp shot one bounce 5-3 to lead off the game. Let’s go.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:13 pm
  • Granderson walks.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:14 pm
  • Cano skies one to short left field. What a ferocious cut, but way underneath. ARod up with 2 away.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:15 pm
  • Horrible FUCKING CALL!!
    Granderson totally beat that throw!

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:19 pm
  • I don’t remember the last call that was so obvious IN REAL TIME that the umps blew. PATHETIC.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:21 pm
  • And now they show the replay. FUCK.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:22 pm
  • Had to wait through a commercial break just to see how awful that call was. Now Hughes gives up a lead-off double.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:23 pm
  • This doesn’t look like the confident, good Hughes…
    That call blew. I have no idea what the announcers were looking at to justify that call?

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:25 pm
  • His fastball looks weak and lame…not good. When he isn’t striking people out, he is terrible.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:26 pm
  • Hughes ahead on Young but throwing lots of pitches as Young protects with a 1-2 count. Swinging K.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:26 pm
  • And then he K’s Young…breathe krueg, breathe…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:27 pm
  • OK…we need a DP.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:28 pm
  • Krueg, there’s no way that Granderson was out. He was safe in “real time”, safe in “slo-mo” and safe in frame-by-frame.
    Hamilton singles to left, but Andrus is (fortunately) held up.. Gardner brought a great throw in, but Posada bobbled it.
    First and third, one away.
    Not good.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:29 pm
  • breathe, phil, breathe…

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:30 pm
  • That was easy…0-1. Great start.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:31 pm
  • Vlad hits a squib to score Andrus. Two away.
    Pissed now.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:32 pm
  • Hughes looks fucking awful.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:32 pm
  • What was that…30 pitches??? At least???

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:33 pm
  • It would fantastic if our offense could generate some runs at some point…just terrific.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:34 pm
  • ARod looks so out of sync…has been for awhile.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:36 pm
  • I’m just pissed off in so many ways at this second. breather, gerbil, breathe.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:37 pm
  • They are making all the plays…getting all the hits…making all the pitches…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:37 pm
  • It like the entire team just is slumping at the same time…for the last couple months? It’s really painful to watch.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:38 pm
  • …getting all the bullshit cheater calls from the blind umpires when Grandy clearly had second base…

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:39 pm
  • It’s my fault…I was actually feeling good and confident today. I’m an idiot.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:39 pm
  • Still refraining from commenting on the ice.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:40 pm
  • Swisher has been terrible in the postseason…last year and this year. WTF.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:40 pm
  • Yes, please.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:40 pm
  • Time to get home to feed my kid, kiss my wife, and walk my dog.
    Replace every verb with kick.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 8:41 pm
  • 1-2-3 from Hughes…that made me feel a little better.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:48 pm
  • Nice. Peace AG.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:48 pm
  • Swinging at the first pitch…out. WTF is wrong with these guys???

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:51 pm
  • Another weak pop out…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:52 pm
  • Another 1-2-3 inning for the impostors wearing the Yankee uniforms. No hitter going as well. It’s kinda tough to win when you cannot even get a fucking hit.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 8:55 pm
  • Hughes throws the 1st intentional ball to the fucking backstop. Wow. How can we possibly win this fucking game.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:04 pm
  • Offense fucking sucks. Cano hits into the DP. No hit through 4…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:15 pm
  • Hughes holds them to 1 through 4…he’s thrown a lot of pitches though so far…
    Offense? Ha. What offense. ARod to lead off the 5th.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:32 pm
  • AROD LEADOFF DOUBLE!!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!! PRAISE SCIENCE!!!!

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:34 pm
  • Berkman SAC fly…ARod to 3rd. 1 out. Someone hit him in. Please.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:35 pm
  • Pitch looked like it hit Swisher and went to the backstop…called a wild pitch…ARod scores??? 1-1???
    This is crazy. It definitely hit him. Definitely.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:37 pm
  • This is going to be a big deal if we end up winning.

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:37 pm
  • sterling just gave berkman the old… “it is high, it is far, it is caught”.

    sf rod October 22, 2010, 9:37 pm
  • 2 out double for Hip Hip…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:40 pm
  • Season over. Joe left Hughes in one batter too long again…

    krueg October 22, 2010, 9:55 pm
  • feel bad for robertson here. girardi is letting him get roped like it’s a meaningless game in may.

    sf rod October 22, 2010, 10:07 pm
  • Andrus down easy to end the inning. ARod looks good throwing on a charge from the hot corner. I’m going to hold on to that until I see a bat show up this game.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:21 pm
  • Still pissed off. Commercial where the lady grabs the pizza guy’s arm? Hit him!

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:22 pm
  • Cano leads off the top of seven.
    Takes strike one on the outside corner, then watches a pitch way outside.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:24 pm
  • Robi tips a pitch way outside on 1-1 to make it 1-2, then chases a pitch in the dirt to strike out. Ugh.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:25 pm
  • ARod takes a pitch, and then hits a line drive to left for the second out.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:26 pm
  • Lance Berkman (???) hits a triple (???)
    No matter, because Swisher flies out to left.
    Let’s listen to Miss Texas instead.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:28 pm
  • Posada’s strikeout has b

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:46 pm
  • oops.. Posada’s strikeout seems egregious.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:47 pm
  • Gardner walks with two outs in the eighth. Now there’s a visit to the mound as Derek Jeter comes to the plate.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:49 pm
  • WTF was that. Jeter down “swinging” to end the “threat” in the Yankee eighth.

    attackgerbil October 22, 2010, 10:53 pm
  • How many days til pitchers and catchers report?

    attackgerbil October 23, 2010, 4:16 am
  • ugh…wish i could find something to feel good about, but this has been excrutiating to watch the yankees unravel the past 2 months…usually, even in defeat, i can come up with 1 thing that i can hang my hat on…you know, a “well, they lost but….” …i guess cano’s great season and post season sort of fill the void, but…ugh…my son says the yankees had been playing like they look old, for most of the season, but mostly obviously the past 2 months…he has a point…ugh…on to football…

    dc October 23, 2010, 5:19 am
  • trying not to take anything away from the rangers, but could the yankees have played any worse than they did in this series?…yes, i know it was a microcosm of september, but the scary thing about that is that it may not have been an aberration, after all…we didn’t hit, didn’t pitch, and girardi’s midas touch from last year’s post season was missing…i’m trying not to second guess all of his decisions because largely managers are a victim of circumstance…the nature of the job makes them a way too convenient scapegoat…i would have handled a few situations differently, but they may not have played out any better…

  • We are sorry to see the Yankees lose, but like Twitter says #YankeesBackNextYear. As a totem of our love for the Yankees fans, here is a capsule of free game used authentic MLB certified dirt- we will send to you:

  • It’s the curse of being a YF that losing in the ALCS equates to total failure but it is what it is. I’ll be interested to see this offseason what changes are made. We need some. We are old and slow at this point.

    krueg October 23, 2010, 11:15 am
  • A-Rod’s, Tex’s, and Jeter’s bats didn’t show up, a good pitching job by Pettite was wasted, and Girardi micromanaged as usual. Having said that, we were outhit and outpitched. The Yanks have some big holes to fill over the off-season. Have a nice winter, one and all.
