going to the thousand islands in an hour and will miss the first two games. Oh well. Go Yankees!
The earth be shakin’ a lot here.
Um…I don’t have a great feeling about this. *gulp*
I feel more nervous than excited? Maybe it’s just the shitty weather up there?
LET’S GO YANKEES!!!
Let’s go yankees!
let’s go yankees!
CLAP CLAP CLAP
Happy Aaron Boone Day everyone!
I cannot wait for this game.
Bringing the lady out for a birthday dinner, will be watching via iPhone….GO YANKEES!!!
Solid 1st by CC…I can exhale, for now.
Let’s go offense. Jump on his ass early. It’s cold. Destroy his will to live. Do it now.
Leadoff single for Jeter…he is god.
What a stellar at-bat from Jeter… something like 8 pitches.
Johnny comes through…nice. 2nd and 3rd, no outs…
COME ON TEX!!!
Tex pops out to SHORT LF…f-ck. That sucked.
COME ON AROD!!! BRING THE NOISE!!!
AROD WITH THE SAC FLY!!! 1-0!!! Keep it going ARod!!!!
Johnny at 2nd still, he wants to come home…send him home Godzilla. Send him home.
Well, boys, there’s no way in hell I want the Yanks to win, so I can’t say good luck.
But do have fun.
Oh, and I promise not to be an ass during the rest of the postseason.
But AFTER the postseason …
Some Little League shit right there.
I cannot believe that just happened.
Infield pop fly by Godzilla drops between Figgins and Aybar?
GREAT 1ST!!!!! 2-0! Keep it rolling CC. Be the ball.
See, that’s the crap that WE could have used against the Angels.
Wow. The Angels just gave at the office. 2-0! Nice way to start.
Mrs. Krueg was calmly calling for them to drop it…and they did. She is magic.
i clearly heard arod yell “ha”
krueg…love ya man…welcome back
Ninja Cano strikes again.
Those numbers above in the gamer don’t bode well for a hit-off!
Anyone notice thru the first two innings that CC squints like someone that really needs glasses does?
wow. will cano be holding up the chase around the corner from the stadium after the game?
but nice inning for cc. [note to swish: watch. the. ball. ]
walein: yeah. but he’s looking awfully old-school in a sloppy, ruthian way with his cap all askew tonite. enjoying that.
cano sends one for a ride but hunter tracks it down.
and hunter skips (!) over to a tall fly from the swish. 2 down.
if you’re gonna leave hinske off the roster, why not start gardner?
melkman sends a third to mr. hunter. yanks go down 8.8.8.
aybar first pitch fly to right. 1 out.
Gardner will start against the righties.
Loving CC. Great guy, great look, great results. Love. Him.
wouldn’t mind one of those ear-flappy yankee caps for winter. hint!
figgins looks at 1 right over the plate. k3. 2 down.
I’m a huge CC fan YF. Picked him up and had him on my fantasy team for 4 years (up until this past year when he went for way too much in our auction draft).
With CC squinting and swisher not seeing and Aybar losing it, maybe there’s an embargo on MLB eye drops.
abreu looks. k4
cc thru 3.
CC is dealing. Sexy.
Wow. Love that he’s a true pitcher. 290lbs and he knows how to pitch and off of 96 mph.
It’s funny…I felt CC was getting pinched the first two innings (on the corners); but he’s nailing those same corners now and getting strikes called.
I’m all for it. The Yankees need to take advantage of Lackey being behind in counts because I don’t want to see Lackey “settle down.”
We need to knock Lackey out…ll cool j style. Now. I command you.
Thanks DC…i heart you too bro.
COME ON YANKEES!!!
Tex crushes a single…right at Fat Bobby. If you guys just make him move, you’re good. He hates to move. That was right at him.
ARod with the CLUTCH AS HELL single…Johnny to 3rd, 2 outs. COME ON GODZILLA!!!! MUSHU THE BALL!!!!
Hard hit ball…3 outs. Deflating…
Jeter catches a pop up…amazing. he is god. aybar can’t do that!
with CC pitching like that you can hope he goes 7+, but offense needs to shake the cold off
Double for The Impaler…he crushed it. Thanks wind! 1 out. My pulse is quickening.
2 outs…Vlad to 3rd. COME ON CC…use the force.
Kendry Morales…that’s always the way.
CC isn’t getting the corners again this inning. Pinch is on.
And FOX drops in the pitch count with sound effects from spaceship doors.
Limited the damage. Alright, it’s cool. Regroup and get some more runs. Stop procrastinating.
time we showed the power already
Seriously, let’s get it going. Go Yanks!
2 out single for Swishalicious…made him throw some pitches too. Lackey is settling down, we cannot let that happen.
Melky 2 out walk…Jeter walks to the plate…
Derek Jeter. Let’s roll.
Jeter with a 3 pitch strike out. Ouch.
…and K’s on 3 nasty pitches. I really don’t like how this game is going right now. I feel sick.
Impressive 1-2-3 for CC…heart rate slowing slightly.
Believe in the Big Man! Giddy up!
JD with a lead off double. Let’s tack on a few or 10!
LEADOFF DOUBLE FOR JOHNNY!!!! Beautiful. Bring it Tex. Do it now.
I’m not even going to say anything…he hit the walkoff.
90 pitches so far for Lackey…
ARod walks…1st and 2nd, 1 out. Godzilla-san saunters to the dish…ready to chop suey the ball.
Godzilla lines one into Left center…3-1, but ARod runs through a stop sign and blasts the catcher, 2 outs. F-ck.
Holy fuck, A-Rod delivered a running knee to Mathis’ face.
I’m not even mad he ran through the stop sign. That is bad ass.
Questionable play by ARod, but if he made it he would look like a genius. Still, instead of 2nd and 3rd, 1 out, it’s 2nd with two outs..
One of those plays where he looks good or bad – no in-between. Still, would have been 2nd and 3rd and one out.
Believe in the Big Man.
Hip Hip…3 outs. Well, we got a run, but I feel like I woke up next to an ugly girl with a hangover. Vomitus.
It was kinda badass dougie fresh…thanks for the positive spin!
Wasn’t the best move by AROD…however, first pitch swinging by Posada was probably sillier. Let Lackey hit his pitch limit!
Let’s go CC!
Ya, at least he didn’t pussy that one out.. he really gave it..
no tag…ump must have thought it was a force out…figures
Wow, high-res replay shows A-Rod was safe.
Replay showed ARod was safe…almost impossible for the ump to see that angle though.
Christ, that sound really rational coming from me?
GREAT DIVING GRAB BY JOHNNY!!!! 1 out.
FUK YO BUNT!
Tex hung on to the base by a spike, it looks like.
Turns out The Angels AND MCCARVER are BOTH wrong. he was out. Great call.
Cat-like reflexes from the Big Man!
WHAT A PLAY BY CC!!! TEX STRETCHED LIKE PLASTIC MAN!!!!! 2 outs.
The Angels are freaking out but the replay CLEARLY shows his toe was on the bag…I f-cking hate McCarve-douche and Joe F-ck. Douche is talking like his foot WASN’T on the bag when it was. F-ck you Tim you crusty-balled douchebag.
McCarver is bumming! “The fact that he had to come back showed to me that he was off”
That Texeira is a consummate first baseman who is selling it either way…
Now McCarver is saying we should go by Tori Hunter’s opinion of whether or not he’s safe.
My…McCarver is bummed!
way out…nice call by the first base ump…home plate ump is still a moron though…oh well
McCarver: “He was definitely off the bag because he had to come back after catching the ball.”
Because leaning forward while doing the splits is such a natural position.
Tim McCarver asserts he is off the bag even when he sees that he is on the bag.
So, let me get this straight: the catcher doesn’t tag ARod but the Angels should get the out. Teix makes the play but the Yankees shouldn’t get the out.
Fuck you, Tim.
K’S Vlad to end the 6th…CC YOU A BEAST!!!!
Ya, the toe and the heel are not the same! The heel coming off doesn’t mean the toe was off!
I think it was close, but definitely not “clear” as he claims..
On the ARod play, it was close and he held on to the ball, so I don’t fault him per se.. though of course, it’s easier to hold on to the ball when you don’t tag the guy!
Totally Krueg…it’s moments like these that I wish they would just let McCarver do the National league series and keep him out of the ALCS.
AND in the previous inning he took the whole “You’re always going to get that call” when AROD was clearly safe at the bag.
What mess with our luck here but how many times has McCarver said or told us CC’s weight…we get it he’s 290!
AG I feel like I’m your neighbor with all this rain BTW!
80 pitches through 6. Impressive.
he. was. on. the. bag.
and wtf was hunter bunting for anyway? dumb. deserved his fate.
WTP for Cano…didn’t make Fat Bobby move enough. 1 out.
Cano gave that one a ride, but Abreu gets it for the out. If only Cano hits it like a line drive, then Abreu can be scared of the ball..
Or wall.. haha.. they’re working Lackey, but I want to see more runs on the board..
Lackey’s velo is not what it used to be but his location and CB are as good as ever. He just peppers spots it’s amazing.
stfu tim mccarver.
Now McDouche is extolling the virtues of the Angels catcher that didn’t even tag ARod??? For real?
Look at Melky work his at-bats like a pro! Second walk of the night, great effort.
Did Melky just walk for the second time tonight?
Melky draws a 2 out walk…good eye. Come on Jeter, time to shine.
Almost “Soft Underbelly” time…111 pitches for Lackey.
The new Krueg is throwing me off…but it’s working so that’s all that matters.
Nice throw Lackey…Melky to 2nd. COME ON CAPTAIN CLUTCH!!!
Wait, which team is the fundamentally sound team that does all the small things?
LIKE F-CKING CLOCKWORK BABY!!!! JETER IS A GOLDEN GOD!!!! 4-1!!!
Hunter misplays the ball, Jeter to 2nd. McDouche begins to weep.
Alright, now I’m being an asshole, which the karma/baseball gods hate, but ya. Still, go Yanks!
Hunter was shallow and lined up to hose Leche…but whoops! Atta boy Captain!
There’s the Angel’s vaunted infield defense… and now the renowned outfield defense.
I have no idea how the Yankees look like the most fundamentally sound team, but I like it!
captain clutch comes thru again. you just knew he would.
John, I’m not going to lie to you, I have had to smoke copious amounts of pot to keep myself from having a heart attack. My mellow is nearly harsh-proof at this point…
Oh my gosh Amy Sedaris in the Sony Reader commercial
<3 that woman
Do you pull the Big Man early to rest him better for Game 4 or do you ride him as long as possible?
Decent smack by JD, but right at Rivera.. 4-1 Yanks after 6.
Damon lines out…hit it well. Curses.
4-1. Let’s go CC. You are an animal.
Keep shutting them down C!
Ride him like porn star JJ…ride him like a porn star.
Let’s hope we get through the bullpen a bit.. there’s a game tomorrow, and we wouldn’t want them to be too rested, do we? ;)
Pot for me too! VaporBrothers with Sour Diesel!
mcbuckfucker hates the yanks…
K that’s one way pal! Whatever you’re doing it’s working!
No, don’t pull him. Worry about today, today.
The problem is the munchies hit two innings ago.
Should I have another bowl of cereal?
What is it like watching baseball whilst stoned
I honestly doubt they play tomorrow 80% chance or rain all day into Sunday. This could be final game until Monday.
That is a dirty, filthy man.
I’m just chilled the fuck out….and happy!
Have you ever watched baseball? Have you ever watched baseball….on weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed?
It’s pretty great. I cannot lie. But we can’t really get into it on here more than we already have. The Morality Police will find and destroy us.
Fuck the Poh-leese.
that looked suspiciously like a strike…i’m just sayin’…
Just missed to Morales…yikes!
“Lazy” Cano makes magnificent play!
Great diving stab by Cano…2 outs, Angel on 2nd. He shall not pass!!!
Ninja leather…oh man.
I am laughing my ass off over here…
Crowd is getting rowdy…
What a monstrous “CC” chant.
The CC chant! From the whole stadium!
Oh no not a fist pump!!!
No Ronan Tynan tonight.
CC is f-cking ridiculously good. I mean, seriously? Are you really this incredible CC? Let me get that for you…yes, yes you are.
Perhaps the greatest chant I’ve ever heard!
CC owns Napoli infront of America. That was nice. The whole thing was just so well done.
CC with the 15:1 K:BB in 13.2 postseason IP.
“…let me root, root, root for the YANK-EES…”
Greatest gamer thread cheer…to date. We can do better in the future. We are YF’s.
Bulger threw some nasty pitches to Alex…wow.
The fans made sure he didn’t catch that…solid. I’ve always wondered why fans let opposing players make catches in the stands? I would tear the dudes glove off…
Another 2 out walk…Godzilla this time. Rally.
CC just calm and cool yawning in the dugout…
Yeah, at least box the guy out. Throw an elbow into his ribs or kidneys.
Hip Hip base on ball…1st and 2nd, 2 outs. Rally.
Don’t really understand why Napoli came into the game defensively? I know why he hit but he’s awful defensively. Not the guy you want back there 7,8,9.
Cano…2 outs, RISP…
Cano nailed on the foot…bases loaded for Swish.
You’re down by three runs. You need the offense, not the defense.
full count…the crowd rises…
That was pathetic.
They’re hanging around…
I said I understand him hitting. I get it that was Sciosia’s shot at putting up some numbers but why not either A, use another hitter then Simmons OR Napoli then replace him with Simmons. He may not even get up again so your keeping him in there now for poor defense.
NOOO you swung at ball four
I love CC to death, and I would ride him all I can, but up 4-1, couldn’t Joe at least have someone warm up? I know, I know, win today, worry about Game 4 later, but you know, just in case CC gets in trouble or something.. it’s already the 8th!
It was a good pitch by Bulger though. He busted the lefty inside with a breaking ball.
Hughes is up Lar…ask and ye shall recieve.
Two more outs then Mo!
Ya, apparently! ;)
5 more to go.
Would anyone be shocked if Figgins was playing 3B for the Sox in 2010? Just see him as a fit and everytime I see him I think SOX!
This was an epic start by CC, I mean talk about an Ace. We finally have one of our very own.
In the immortal words of Tony, Tone, Toni…It feels good, yeah.
Don’t stop hitting! Let’s go!
8 IP, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 7 k’s, 11 groundball outs, 5 fly ball outs.
In other words, 18 of his 24 outs came on the K or on th ground.
He was great tonight. Now Mo’s turn!
Melky leadoff single!!! Great game Melky!!!
Jeter moves Melky to 2nd…1 out. Come on Johnny, we need more runs. We’re greedy.
“Pretty good AB for Damon…” says Joe F-ck…pretty good? Try sick idiot.
Damon gets Melky to 3rd for Tex…come on Tex, time for a big RBI dude.
Again, not saying anything…
I jsut found out I’m going to game 4 in ANA…I’ve never been to ANY professional sports post-season game…I’m super psyched!!!!
Dude…solid. Nice work! They hate the Yankees out there…should be awesome!
You have got to be kidding me???? This piece of shit ump is squeezing Mo???
Yikes! Mo not sharp early on.
This motherf-cker is calling every f-cking pitch a ball…
K’S VLAD!!!! 1 out.
Strike 3 called a f-cking ball…
Why no K Zone on Fox?
Let’s go Mo!
It’s a conspiracy John…
YANKEES WIN…THAAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!
Cue Frankie…it’s over. 1-0 good guys.
Peace out boys. I feel great.
Nice job fellas! Great job Krueg! I’ll be at game tomorrow I’ll try and check in! Go Yanks!
good game guys, let’s win again tomorrow!
Was sitting in first row of LF bleachers yelling all kinds of things at Angel relievers in the pen and Torii in CF. Pretty sure he heard me taunt for being unable to outrun a 300-lb man on his bunt attempt and also that “Torii” is a stripper’s name. Yes, I’m proud. CC chant was cool and weather not nearly as horrible, bitter as made out to be on tv and radio. It was a little cold but not even that bad and – after the first inning, completely dry. Pretty nice October ball weather if you ask me, especially when teams from southern California show that they can’t play defense when it’s below 65 degrees. Worried about getting tomorrow’s game in. If AJ can keep his head right through even 5 IP the Yankees could be in strong shape heading out to LA.
But more than anything: WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN ACE MAKES!
“…Was sitting in first row of LF bleachers yelling all kinds of things at Angel relievers in the pen and Torii in CF….”
was that you IH?… ;)
glad you had such a good time, and the weather cooperated…always a little more fun when we win…you guys that mentioned you still have a game to go to, enjoy…i’m jealous…my son and his buddies went to yanks/twins I, and they had a blast…
What a beautiful Fall day!
Everyone remember when the yanks signed CC this offseason and certain people (not all) around here were saying it wasnt a great singing since CC wasnt any good in october? I think we can put that one to bed now.
heck sam, that shi* was still going on just 2 weeks ago…arod too…but beware the seduction of such small sample sizes, this could still derail before it’s all over…for now though, i’m basking in it…
totally dc, CC could throw a clunker his next time out easily. Arod could easily go 0fer the rest of the series. the point is that the statement that CC sucks in the post-season is pretty much out the window after his last two starts. He is a great pitcher capable of doing his thing at any time.
