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
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…
Watching the Sabes now.
Don’t tell me anything…I’m DVR’ing it. :)
sheesh.. buffalo looks like they are asleep. Ottawa was all over them after that last face.
What was that, three minutes where buffalo couldn’t cross the senators’ blue line?
Oops.. sorry Krueg… Just saw your request for no spoilers. :)
I’m just excited to be able to watch me some Buffalo hockey.
This is me so not talking about the ice right now.
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.
Jeter first-pitch sharp shot one bounce 5-3 to lead off the game. Let’s go.
Cano skies one to short left field. What a ferocious cut, but way underneath. ARod up with 2 away.
Horrible FUCKING CALL!!
Granderson totally beat that throw!
I don’t remember the last call that was so obvious IN REAL TIME that the umps blew. PATHETIC.
And now they show the replay. FUCK.
Had to wait through a commercial break just to see how awful that call was. Now Hughes gives up a lead-off double.
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?
His fastball looks weak and lame…not good. When he isn’t striking people out, he is terrible.
Hughes ahead on Young but throwing lots of pitches as Young protects with a 1-2 count. Swinging K.
And then he K’s Young…breathe krueg, breathe…
OK…we need a DP.
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.
breathe, phil, breathe…
That was easy…0-1. Great start.
Vlad hits a squib to score Andrus. Two away.
Hughes looks fucking awful.
What was that…30 pitches??? At least???
It would fantastic if our offense could generate some runs at some point…just terrific.
ARod looks so out of sync…has been for awhile.
I’m just pissed off in so many ways at this second. breather, gerbil, breathe.
They are making all the plays…getting all the hits…making all the pitches…
It like the entire team just is slumping at the same time…for the last couple months? It’s really painful to watch.
…getting all the bullshit cheater calls from the blind umpires when Grandy clearly had second base…
It’s my fault…I was actually feeling good and confident today. I’m an idiot.
Still refraining from commenting on the ice.
Swisher has been terrible in the postseason…last year and this year. WTF.
Time to get home to feed my kid, kiss my wife, and walk my dog.
Replace every verb with kick.
1-2-3 from Hughes…that made me feel a little better.
Nice. Peace AG.
Swinging at the first pitch…out. WTF is wrong with these guys???
Another weak pop out…
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.
Hughes throws the 1st intentional ball to the fucking backstop. Wow. How can we possibly win this fucking game.
Offense fucking sucks. Cano hits into the DP. No hit through 4…
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.
AROD LEADOFF DOUBLE!!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!! PRAISE SCIENCE!!!!
Berkman SAC fly…ARod to 3rd. 1 out. Someone hit him in. Please.
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.
This is going to be a big deal if we end up winning.
sterling just gave berkman the old… “it is high, it is far, it is caught”.
2 out double for Hip Hip…
Season over. Joe left Hughes in one batter too long again…
feel bad for robertson here. girardi is letting him get roped like it’s a meaningless game in may.
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.
Still pissed off. Commercial where the lady grabs the pizza guy’s arm? Hit him!
Cano leads off the top of seven.
Takes strike one on the outside corner, then watches a pitch way outside.
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.
ARod takes a pitch, and then hits a line drive to left for the second out.
Lance Berkman (???) hits a triple (???)
No matter, because Swisher flies out to left.
Let’s listen to Miss Texas instead.
Posada’s strikeout has b
oops.. Posada’s strikeout seems egregious.
Gardner walks with two outs in the eighth. Now there’s a visit to the mound as Derek Jeter comes to the plate.
WTF was that. Jeter down “swinging” to end the “threat” in the Yankee eighth.
How many days til pitchers and catchers report?
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…
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.
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.
