  • We have to win this game.

    krueg the miserable October 20, 2009, 5:33 pm
  • Kaz could be nasty, or he could suck. He’s like AJ, except for not. I hope we get the shitty Kaz today.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 5:52 pm
  • Also a bit of bad timing on the Yanks part for not hitting.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 5:52 pm
  • This is literally the day that immediately jumped to my mind back in August or September when we heard of the ridiculously premature dumping of kazmir by the Rays, who were within striking distance of the WC at the time. It was a brilliant stroke by the Angels FO and a big FU from the Rays to the Sox and Yanks who were leading them at the time. Well, now the day is here. I sincerely hope the Yankees make him look foolish for once.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 6:18 pm
  • Predictions pulled out of my netherparts: Kazmir lasts longer than CC, Teixiera breaks out of his slump, another umping outrage, another extremely close game…

    Hudson October 20, 2009, 6:25 pm
  • I don’t have a good feeling about this game at all…the ghosts of choke-jobs past are filling my soul with loathing.

    krueg is NOT positive ANYMORE October 20, 2009, 6:34 pm
  • Won’t be long now…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:35 pm
  • haha, krueg is treating this like a ‘dead man walking’ moment. what was your last meal?

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 7:41 pm
  • Getting ready to eat some pork…not “partaking” tonight either so my anxiety level is rising…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:49 pm
  • It’s like listening to Angels announcers…these two morons have huge boners for them…WILLING them to victory. I f-cking hate Joe Fuck and McDouche.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • Basically CC has to run the table…AJ is going to get housed on Thursday. This game is the series. I feel sick.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • kreug, you don’t trust Pettitte and CC at home?

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • Anyone know where I can find the Yankees radio team online? I would love to mute these idiots…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:59 pm
  • I trust no one…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 7:59 pm
  • kreug, es impossible in any legal way, unless you buy some sort of Gameday Audio package.
    How many times has Jeter led off the game this postseason with a hit?

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • Leadoff single for Jeter…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • That’s what I thought…thanks Andrew.
    Jeter caught stealing…we are going to lose this fucking series. Game.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Or a caught stealing….stop trying to out-Angel the Angels, especially on the road!

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Damon goes down easily…SURPRISE!!!! Not.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:02 pm
  • Tex hits a laser foul…lame. K coming…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • Called it. Thanks for showing up Tex you f-cking loser.
    Kaz laying us down per usual…another pinstriped choke job. I knew this was all too good to be true. Motherf-ckers.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • not a good beginning. I missed the Jeter cs. Pisses me off that we didn’t make kaz work longer out of the stretch.
    i’m not watching the bottom of the inning. too nervous.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • Figgy ripped one at Jeter…1 pitch, 1 out. Can CC get through the game on 27 pitches? That’s what it’s going to take with our pathetic f-cking offense…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Nope.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Ump is squeezing CC too…that’s not good for us.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • 4 pitch walk to Fat Bobby…game.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • 4 pitch walk to abreu. well, he doesn’t exactly look sharp.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:10 pm
  • Whew.
    Now can our offense actually score some runs??? Not.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:16 pm
  • Sabathia doesn’t look dominany but he has a good first anyway.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:16 pm
  • a-rod with the steal.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:21 pm
  • ARod walks then steals 2nd…dude is a beast. Thanks for showing up ARod, now for the rest of the scrubs…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:22 pm
  • Nice steal by ARod. That’s what I’ve been pushing for, but ya.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:23 pm
  • I just got in, any mention of the spitball on air? Haha..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:23 pm
  • Kazmir sort of looks like the actor who played the older brother in adventures in babysitting, that elizabeth shue classic.
    Posada walks!

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:24 pm
  • Matsui with a chance to give them the lead. The black hole bunch is batting behind Matsui though, who is batting 4/9 this series.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:24 pm
  • Another walk to Hip Hip…1st and 2nd, no outs…sounds familiar…anyone want to come through? McFly? Bueller? Anyone?
    COME ON YANKEES!!! QUIT F-CKING AROUND!!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:24 pm
  • Mmmmmm…Elizabeth Shue.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • Nothing yet Lar…they are too busy blowing the Angels…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • hideki fails.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • Godzilla chokes…here comes the DP. We are f-cking horrible. Blow another opportunity.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • Matsui pops it up, a huge out. To be fair, other than ARod and Jeter, that’s who I would want up.
    Here’s Cano, who has not hit with men on base this year, trying to prove people wrong.
    But ya, 1st and 2nd, no out, you got to score.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • cano with a runner in scoring position combined with the fact that it is the postseason means this should result in a gidp.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:28 pm
  • here we go again…

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • Cano pops it up. Bah, two outs. Swisher is up.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • shocker, a weak out to left field.
    awesome.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • I am so sick and tired of hearing about how good Cano is…he f-cking blows. The guy never comes up in a big spot. Never.
    2 f-cking outs. Here comes Flusher the automatic out. Completely wasted another fucking golden opportunity. We are going to lose this series.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • Completely letting Kaz off the hook…just awful.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • kazmir thinks every pitch he throws is a strike even when it clearly isn’t.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:31 pm
  • Kaz looks awful, but Yanks not taking advantage..
    Big 3-2 pitch right now..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:33 pm
  • Swisher fouls that one.
    But ya, I guess a walk isn’t so bad for Angels, since Melky is up next..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:33 pm
  • Swisher bails out Kaz. Bah.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:34 pm
  • Flusher out.
    We picked a great time to completely stop hitting…the ALCS. Gotta love this team. What a waste of talent and money. Bunch of sorry ass f-cking losers.
    CC is going to have to pitch about 13 scoreless innings for us to score a f-cking run.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:34 pm
  • again.
    this is ridiculous.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:34 pm
  • 38 pitches, only 20 for strikes, and we aren’t doing much.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:34 pm
  • now swisher wants to hit a ball out of the infield when he couldn’t do that twice yesterday.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • The Yanks offense has made everybody look like Mariano, without the spitball.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • To AGAIN have 2 on with no outs and get no runs if f-cking atrocious. The wheels have completely fallen off. We look like a bunch of f-cking amateurs at the plate…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • snowballa – I was thinking the same thing. If he just hit flyouts, we would’ve won yesterday. Or something.
    But ya.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:37 pm
  • CC can hit, should have hit him in the DH spot…better than these fucking losers.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:38 pm
  • ah, a productive out.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 8:40 pm
  • krueg – with respect to Cervelli, I was hoping for it last night, haha..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • CC is so good, but even he will give up runs.. so let’s score some Yanks!

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Sabathia doing his job.
    Melky to start off the next inning.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • CC is our only chance…top 3, 1 out already with Melky coming up…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Melky!!!!
    a great bunt.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • They really are trying to out-Angel the Angels.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • Well slap my ass and call me Sally…was that a base hit for Melky??? Here comes the DP…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • ..and it’s f-cking annoying Andrew.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • Melky with a good play.
    Jeter with another one of those balls that is hit hard, but right at Abreu again. Good swing, nothing out of it.
    JD with Melky on first.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • 1 out. Color me apathetic. Here comes the front end of the “rally killers”…Damon and Tex.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • Damon is looking overmatched here. 0-2

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • i swear i looked down for a second and looked up to see 1 out. how about being patient at the plate instead of swinging first all the time?

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • C’mon JD. Daddy wants a HR.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • Or like, a base hit.
    snowballa – to be fair, it was a good drive, just right at someone.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • At least they’re running up his pitch count, though the Yanks has not hit the bullpen much..
    And JD grounds to fielder choice..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:50 pm
  • 2 outs. Damon is a f-cking joke. Tex is out #3. Another garbage inning. Leadoff man on in every, single, f-cking inning and nothing.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:51 pm
  • Teixeira. Let’s break out of something.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 8:52 pm
  • Tex walking is best case scenario at this point…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:52 pm
  • Teixeira continues his glorious postseason hitting.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 8:55 pm
  • How f-cking bad is Tex…I mean seriously.
    Kaz couldn’t be pitching much worse and we have NOTHING to show for it…it is all coming apart. We f-cking suck. Period. End of story. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. This series is over.
    What free agents are there for the outfield next year? Starting pitchers?
    Is Crawford a free agent? We could get Lackey…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:56 pm
  • CC = Obi Wan Kanobi
    i.e. Our only hope.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • You know even if we don’t win it all this season, i have to say that i’m happy i found my new favorite player. I love CC. I love him.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:04 pm
  • How could anyone not like CC, he’s just a big friendly bear.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:05 pm
  • A-rod continues to be good.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:09 pm
  • shit. 2nd and 3rd, 0 outs.
    i don’t have a good feeling about this.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • Isn’t it a rule that you have to score if you have 2nd and 3rd, no one out?
    C’mon, Matty.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • hideki fails again.
    wow.
    i’d bet a lot of money they don’t score.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:12 pm
  • 0 for f-cking 25

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:12 pm
  • Into the “Rally Killers” now…we finished. I’m going to f-cking puke.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:13 pm
  • FINALLY.
    It’s not a hit, but I’ll take it!

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:13 pm
  • AROD IS THE TRUTH!!!! Great slide in SPITE of sorry-ass f-cking Cano…
    1-0

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:13 pm
  • A-Rod wills the run. Cano was crappy again.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:14 pm
  • what is it with cano and these infield weak ass hits? thank god, alex ducked that throw.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:15 pm
  • bases loaded.
    kazmir is practically begging the Yanks to win this game

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • Flusher walks…that was a gift.
    Bases loaded, 1 out…who thinks we won’t score another run?

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • 0-7, 11 stranded with 4 K’s…JUST DON’T HIT INTO A F-CKING DP MELKY!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • finally melky, finally

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:21 pm
  • HOLY SHIT
    MELKY
    A HIT
    RISP

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:21 pm
  • FUCKING MELKY!!!!! NICE!!!! MRS. KRUEG REJOICES IN HER MANS AWESOMENESS!!!!
    3-0!!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:21 pm
  • MELKY IS THE HERO! Now that that’s out of the way, we can steamroll through the rest of the postseason, right?

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • Flusher was out. Hehe. Suck it SoCal.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:23 pm
  • wow, are they showing the replay in the stadium? I thought that wasn’t allowed.
    Anyway, Swisher needs to be talked to.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:23 pm
  • Wow, they actually show replays in Angel stadium? Isn’t that against some kind of policy? They never show replays in YS.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • oh hi, my name is nick swisher. i haven’t been hitting so when i finally get on base, i decide to get tagged out.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • Andrew and I thinking alike.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • Anyway, Swisher needs A BEATING.
    Fixed that for you Nick. :)
    Walks the bases loaded again. COME ON DAMON YOU BASTARD!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:25 pm
  • Make up call. That sucked.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Well, that was a makeup call if I ever saw one. Still, two wrongs most definitely don’t make a right.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • sort of a make up call for another bad call. how do you say he left early?!

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • No stupid f-cking Angels fan can cry about that call at 2nd now…that was CLEARLY a make up call.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Betcha they don’t show that replay in the stadium.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • what the umps giveth they taketh away.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • That was a makeup call!

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • Instant. Replay. NOW.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:30 pm
  • holy shit. the ump isn’t even looking at swisher!
    wow!

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:30 pm
  • mccarver, i want you to dwell on mcclellan for the rest of the game. your annoying shit might prove worthwhile if you humiliate that ump on national tv.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:32 pm
  • c’mon guys, swisher was out at second. thinking of that will keep you from drop kicking your TV

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:33 pm
  • Tex-Alex-Hip Hip…Step. On. Throat.

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:34 pm
  • I’m with snow, he shouldn’t have been at 3rd for one, and we’ve had a few calls go our way. Now the slate is clean. The Haters will have nothing to cry about now…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • We know, but that’s actually somewhat defensible, and umpires get it wrong from time to time. McClelland wasn’t even LOOKING at Swisher.
    I agree with McCarver, how the hell is an umpire supposed to determine when he left the bag? This is another obvious use of instant replay, where a human being just doesn’t have the ability to make the correct call.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • HERE COMES TEX BABY!!!! LOOK OUT FANS IN THE OUTFIELD, THIS ONES COMING FOR ONE OF YOU!!! Not. 1 out already.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • I’m down with instant replay…why not get the calls right if you can? This isn’t 1936!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • McClellan made that call out of position and without even LOOKING! The 2B umpire missed the call but was in position and watched the play. There’s a difference. McClellan was playing God evening things out.

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:37 pm
  • TEX GOT A HIT!!! HALLELUJAH!!!! SCIENCE BE PRAISED!!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Nice Tex, time for some more runs. A bomb from A-Rod would be ideal.
    I wonder why Torii thought Swisher left early? Did he somehow get an assurance that there would be a makeup call? That would be a much worthier conspiracy theory than the ridiculous ‘spit-gate’.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:39 pm
  • Great point John…but it evened out. Clearly an agenda by the Ump, but he’s probably from New England so f-ck him!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:39 pm
  • He’s been so good but is it too much to ask for Alex to keep it going here?

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • Into their bullpen in the 5th inning…no excuses…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • No John, no it’s not…
    COME ON AROD!!! THINK ABOUT KATE!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:42 pm
  • wowza, alex.

    attackgerbil October 20, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • I guess not…LOL

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • A-Rod continues to have a freaking amazing postseason.
    Although this is just a stat-padding homerun.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • abomb. and my neighbors are now officially disturbed. 300 pound dude jumping up and down in a 3rd floor apartment…
    5-0!!!!
    AROD IS A GOLDEN GOD!!!!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • “Think about Kate”
    hysterical

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • changed the channel, came back, another a-bomb and no one out. can we keep this going? we beat ourselves yetserday, let’s not have that go again today.
    cc wins this game, he will be have to be 2nd in line for ALCS MVP. a-rod, obviously first.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • my streaming video just went kaput right before the homer. why? why?!!

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:46 pm
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…that sucks NIck. Damn internets.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:48 pm
  • HIP HIP…STOLEN BASE???? Are you kidding me????

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:49 pm
  • it’s still kaput.
    maybe it’s all for the better. maybe i’m not supposed to be too happy.
    oh god, i guess i haven’t tried hard enough.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:49 pm
  • Cano can kill a rally like nobodies business…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • Posada just stole a base. Jorge Posada just stole a base.
    Wow.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • I went to take a walk because this game is seriously negatively affecting my heart. I come back to the best thing ever, if they can hold on to this effing lead this time.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • WTF?!
    Did Jorge steal a base?
    I mean I guess I did see Haley’s Comet, but, frankly, it wasn’t too impressive.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • Hunter totally faked Hip Hip out…meh. 2nd and 3rd, 1 out. Come on Flusher…DO SOMETHING YA WEIRDO!!!

    attackgerbil October 20, 2009, 9:53 pm
  • WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT??? IS CANO RETARDED??? This ump is a joke…should be both outs.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 9:53 pm
  • Ridiculous. Get your head in the game. Both should be out.

    attackgerbil October 20, 2009, 9:53 pm
  • a player didn’t score from 2nd on a double?! I’m not seeing any of this!
    Has a 3-headed zebra pranced through the infield yet?

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:54 pm
  • McClelland is having the worst umpiring day ever.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 9:54 pm

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 9:54 pm

  • lame

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 9:55 pm
  • Yanks doing their best impression of the baserunning errors that had plague them. They’re up 5-0, but it’s an ugly 5-0, as they look like they can do so much more. Still, you got to take it – it’s been awhile since they score more than 4 runs (game 1 of the ALDS, in fact).

    Lar October 20, 2009, 9:57 pm
  • points off for John right now. No more exclamations without supporting descriptions. I cannot watch this game. It has been fated.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 9:57 pm
  • Bad baserunning at cost them at least a run that inning, along with some unproductive outs.
    And CC gave one of them back, to the righty hitting Morales. 5-1. Bah, if they lose this game..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:00 pm
  • ok, so what happened?

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:00 pm
  • Do they really need to shoot off fireworks after a HOMERUN?

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • Here we go…5-1. Wheels are falling off in front of our faces…
    How stupid is it to shoot off fireworks? How sad is your fanbase that you need a childish gimmick like fireworks and thundersticks…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • Nick, I just got in, what are you asking?
    A pretty high fast ball that Morales just turns around. Not an awful pitch, and barely gets out of a leaping Melky, but ya, result is 5-1 anyhow.
    And now Napoli with a hard singles down the line, well played to keep it a single – thought it was a double off the bat.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • a-rod you gotta catch that!

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • great. i finally get it back and get to see the replay of the morales homer. and now napoli.
    maybe i should just not watch.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • Seriously, yesterday you could say they were not clutch. Today, if they lose, it will literally break my heart. Maybe I should not watch the rest of the game.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • The only thing worse than the Yankee base-running in this game is the umpiring. The missed calls have been stunninglybad. Really.
    And now the Angels start chipping. 5-1. Bear down for another 3 innings CC and shut the plastic-tube-smacking boneheads up.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • HERE COMES THE CHOKE JOB!!!! 5-0 lead means nothing…we are finished. Typical.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:03 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • What’s most amazing to me is that Howie Kendrick hasn’t gotten on base yet this game.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 10:04 pm
  • I hope he gets out of it. He probalby won’t go 9, but it’ll be nice to see him go 7-8, and rest Hughes/Mo a bit.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:04 pm
  • Or alternatively, Yanks score as many as they really should, which is another 5, and make it a laughter.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:04 pm
  • Nick Posada and Cano both tagged out at 3rd on baserunning mistake yet McClellan called Cano safe. Clearly out!
    Morales HR, Napoli line drive single.

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • I should have continued my nasty little habit for this game…I feel a stroke coming on…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:05 pm

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 10:05 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:05 pm

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:05 pm

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • ok, i’m leaving the room.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • Aybar singles, Napoli to second.
    Give Aybar credit, he earned that single. That said, I give it to CC so far, just some random arrangement of hits. Still up 5-1, no need to panic just yet.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • This is pathetic. I knew we were going to lose this game but to blow a 5 run lead in the 5th inning to the bottom of their order??? Must be nice to have guys at the bottom that can hit…we wouldn’t know. F-cking losers.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:10 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • Figgins too fast for the DP, but does get the man on 2nd, 2 outs.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • Cant turn 2…f-ck. The nightmare comeback continues…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:10 pm

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:11 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Wowza, 97mph heat from CC.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Fat Bobby flies out and while that was exciting, CC got out of the jam.
    End of 5, 5-1 Yanks.
    Guys, he only gave up 4 hits this game..

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:12 pm

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:12 pm
  • God, that was rough. I need at least a 30-pitch inning from the Angels to recover from that.

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:12 pm
  • I think I need the Yankees to be up 15-1 and Rivera on the mound (although that should never happen in that situation!) for me to not worry.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • ok, it works. i leave the room and good things happen. so, i’m going to not watch until it’s like 23-1.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:16 pm
  • Another hit for Captain Clutch…Johnny???

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:17 pm

    No way they pitch to ARod…no way.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:24 pm

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • Productive outs.. except for the runs.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:29 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:30 pm

    I am really starting to get pissed off right now.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:30 pm

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 10:37 pm

    Lar October 20, 2009, 10:37 pm

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:37 pm

    YES!

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:38 pm

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 10:39 pm
  • Time to tack on a few more. Or, at least, work the count a bit.

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Or, at least, not make Santana look like Cy Young.

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • I’m sort of amazed by the Angels’ plate approach tonight. They have not been patient with Sabathia, with a number of guys swinging into an out on the 1st or 2nd pitch. Considering that CC’s pitching on short rest, and Joe Super-Geeniuss Girardi burned the entire pen yesterday, you’d think the Halos would have been taking as much as possible and trying to get CC either tired or knocked out early. Instead they are helping him to get through at least seven, maybe more, and Girardi may not need Mo for more than 3-4 outs.

    Hudson October 20, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • How bad was that inning? What the hell is wrong with these guys???

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 10:44 pm

  • Trying to enjoy every moment of this series but it’s so nerve racking!

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 10:49 pm
  • Girardi requested an expanded bullpen before the game so he could bring in multiple relievers to face the same batter while warming up multiple more.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 10:50 pm
  • Beautiful. Take ‘em down, CC.

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:51 pm

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 10:51 pm

    YF_in_MA October 20, 2009, 10:55 pm

    Joe should leave CC for another inning. Seriously.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 10:56 pm
  • i know it’s fruitless to think like this, but it would’ve been so much greater if this was the close out game. instead i have to rest my hopes and dreams on a erratic pitcher who looks like he cooks meth between his pitching starts.
    again, fruitless thinking.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 10:56 pm
  • ok, it’s official i’m starting the CC Sabathia Fan Club. krueg, you’re the spokesperson. IH, you get the message out around the world. Andrew, you coordinate the events. Lar, you run the stats. dc, you send the telegrams. I’ll make the cookies.

    Here’s Melky up.

    Mike S has seen enough, and Santana is out.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:03 pm

  • Shhhhh…no celebrating yet. Gaudin is coming in. Shit happens!

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 11:22 pm

  • ARod said this is how you “force the issue” – tags up on Posada’s fly to Abreu, who was somehow misplayed by Figgins and ARod takes home, says Thanks!

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:23 pm
  • That’s a nice hustle play forced a mistake.

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 11:23 pm
  • a-rod.
    wow.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 11:23 pm
  • Error on Abreu, but really, if you’re Figgins, it’s your job to at least not let it get by you.. and no back ups..
    Either way, it’s 8-1.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:24 pm
  • @nickyf: ha. seriously.
    cc for the 9th?

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 11:24 pm
  • “You are CC’s bottom bitch”
    If I were eating anything it would have come out my nose at this.
    Nick, I’ll get notice in the UNSG spokesperson’s morning news brief re: the formation of the CC Club of Cocky Crowing Cowbell-ringing Carousers (CCCCCC).
    Can you launchthe Jakarta chapter?
    Maybe John-YF can come up with a logo.

  • did matsui even try at that at bat?

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 11:24 pm
  • ARod is a killing machine.

    attackgerbil October 20, 2009, 11:25 pm
  • Matsui quietly having an awful night, 0-5 with 3 K’s. Quietly because the Yanks are up 8-1.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:25 pm

  • Ortiz was a great post-season slugger. Howard is a great post-season slugger. A-Rod is as great a post-season as youcould imagine this year AND he plays superb defense, steals bases, and dates Kate Hudson. He wins hands down.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 11:26 pm
  • Gardner gets a low pressured AB.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:26 pm
  • “Can you launchthe Jakarta chapter?”
    done. just went out to the street and screamed “CC CC CC”.

  • One more time Leche!

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 11:27 pm
  • Gardner does single, and a girl is crying because the Angels are losing.
    Melky doubles in two runs, and the Yanks are up 10-1.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • 10-1

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • Leche has had a great game.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • Melky is such a selfish stat-padder.

    doug YF October 20, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • Was going to say Melky had those key RBIs making it 3-0. After weeks of sucking, he came through at a good time.
    Here’s Jeter with Melky at 2nd.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • “LET’S GO YANKEES” chant fills the stadium…love it.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:29 pm
  • Jeter is so unclutch, stranding a guy on second.
    Is Gaudin coming in? 10-1 lead.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:29 pm
  • “Is Gaudin coming in? 10-1 lead.”
    he should.
    if it were felix heredia i think i say no.

    doug YF October 20, 2009, 11:31 pm
  • Nick you better hope CeCe doesn’t have some sort of hidden meaning over there!

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 11:31 pm
  • Gaudin indeed.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:32 pm
  • Glad Chad is getting some work…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:33 pm
  • At 10-1 I’m cool with Gaudin being in.

    John -YF October 20, 2009, 11:33 pm
  • “Chad Gaudin, human victory cigar.”
    Classic. If I were partaking, I may have had a heart attack from laughter.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:34 pm
  • chad looks good.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 11:34 pm
  • “Nick you better hope CeCe doesn’t have some sort of hidden meaning over there!”
    dude, i have this way with other languages that leads to very awkward situations. This is true: When I was studying in Prague, I once thought I was asking a waiter if I could smoke a cigarette in the restaurant. Turns out my Czech was all off. Apparently, I was asking him if I could blow him in the restaurant. The waiter scurried off and the rest of the meal was very very weird.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 11:35 pm
  • Hell they could bring Farnsworth back for this inning.
    Actually, no.

    IronHorse October 20, 2009, 11:35 pm
  • That…was…fucking…awesome.
    YANKEES WIN…THAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!
    Once more boys, one more…

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:38 pm
  • well, it was nice watching this with you guys. Hopefully we get this finished in Anaheim next game.

    Nick-YF October 20, 2009, 11:38 pm
  • I think we need to give co-MVP awards to A-Rod and CC for the postseason so far.

    AndrewYF October 20, 2009, 11:39 pm
  • How about ARod and CC…keep it up boys.

    krueg is miserable October 20, 2009, 11:39 pm
  • @nickYF: agreed. it was a small and intimate convo with some crazy yankee fans. we laughed, we cried, we CCed.

    snowballa October 20, 2009, 11:51 pm
  • CC worth every dollar, whatever else.

    Lar October 20, 2009, 11:55 pm
  • Torii Hunter just before Game 3 of the ALCS:
    “I think you can say the Yankees are America’s Team. I think everyone is a Yankee fan, whether they’re jumping on the bandwagon or not”.
    Thanks Torii. We figured as much. Clearly the SF regulars here and other fans are just in denial of these immutable facts. Once they – like A-Rod – give in to and embrace reality, they will all feel better and find that they are able to perform to their respective potentials.
