TIME/TV: 6:15 p.m., TBS (delayed by rain)

WEATHER: Cloudy and rainy all day, but right now it’s clear enough to play.

UMPIRES: HP Tony Randazzo, 1B Angel Hernandez, 2B Brian Gorman, 3B Fieldin Culbreth, LF Mike Everitt, RF Mark Carlson

CHAT WITH CARP: Just another reminder that columnist Rick Carpiniello will be hosting a live chat during tonight’s game. You can find it beneath this game post, so go check in every once in a while.

BEAST OF THE EAST: The Yankees are facing an A.L. East opponent in the postseason for the first time since the 2004 ALCS against Boston. I’m sure you all remember how that one went. The Yankees haven’t played the Orioles in the postseason since the 1996 ALCS. I’m sure you remember how that one went, too.

LEADING OFF: Derek Jeter has played in the first game of a playoff series 31 times in his career. He’s reached base safely in 28 of those, batting .378 with 27 runs, five homers, 11 RBI and 18 walks. He’s a career .444 hitter in Game 1 of the division series.

ACE ON THE MOUND: This will be CC Sabathia’s ninth career Game 1 postseason start (all rounds), which will push him past Whitey Ford and Roger Clemens for the second-most Game 1 starts all time behind Greg Maddux who has 11. Sabathia’s five career Game 1 wins are tied with John Smotlz and Red Ruffing for the most in postseason history.

FOR OPENERS: The Yankees went 32-20 in series openers during the regular season. According to Elias, that was the second-best such record in the Majors trailing only the Angels who went 36-16.

UPDATE, 8:25 p.m.: Crowd is very, very into it. They might not show up in the regular season, but this place is packed and full of orange tonight. Terrific atmosphere.

UPDATE, 8:47 p.m.: Jeter single, Ichiro double, and a quick Yankees lead. Of course, Ichiro getting thrown out at third with no outs and the middle of the order coming up is pretty stupid.

UPDATE, 8:53 p.m.: The Yankees could have made a big statement that inning, but a 1-0 lead feels tiny compared to what might have been.

UPDATE, 9:19 p.m..: Sabathia fell behind Machado, then went after the kid for a strikeout. Sabathia looks sharp, folks.

UPDATE, 9:35 p.m.: Two-run single by Nate McLouth has the Orioles in front 2-1. Settling for one run in that first inning could really come back to hurt the Yankees. This crowd is nuts.

UPDATE, 9:51 p.m.: Teixeira crushed that ball, but it’s off the wall for a single with Teixeira out stretching. He tied the game, but it’s clear that Teixeira still can’t run on that calf.

UPDATE, 9:54 p.m.:  Yankees tie the game, but they again let the O’s off the hook with only one run in an inning that could have been much bigger.

UPDATE, 10:18 p.m.: That’s just a terrific play by Martin. Without that, it’s first and second with no one out.

UPDATE, 10:26 p.m.: Big pitches from Sabathia to leave runners at the corners in the fifth and keep this game tied. That inning had trouble written all over it. Still 2-2.

UPDATE, 10:31 p.m.: Hammel is at 104 pitches as this Cano at-bat starts. The Orioles have a lefty throwing in the bullpen, but Showalter is sticking with Hammel.

UPDATE, 10:35 p.m.: Hammel is out after the two-out Swisher single. Heck of an outing by him.

UPDATE, 10:41 p.m.: Davis clearly couldn’t see that ball at the end. It was blocked by the wall, but he put his glove up and made the catch in a part of the park that I didn’t even know existed.

UPDATE, 10:52 p.m.: Jeter wasn’t ready for the hop, but Sabathia pitches around the error to keep the game tied at 2.

UPDATE, 11:00 p.m.: With a righty warming in the Orioles bullpen, Girardi let Ibanez hit for himself against the lefty, and Ibanez drew a walk to put two on with no outs for the top of the order. Another chance for a big inning.

UPDATE, 11:08 p.m.: That’s a tough, tough play for Wieters on the short hop throw from Andino. Nice play at the plate to put the Orioles one out away from getting out of this jam.

UPDATE, 11:11 p.m.: Rodriguez is in pass-the-baton mode. He needed a walk there to get Cano to the plate.

    Lets go Yankees!!!!

  4. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Pretty sure I remember Leyland saying last year that he would not pitch Verlander on 3 days rest no matter what. Don’t know if he would stick to that this year.

    Anyway, have to get through this series first.

  5. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    CC is going to break Maddux’s record for Game 1 starts this year.

  6. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    I hope come Wedneday, the fans at the stadium will be as loud as it appears to be in Camden from the tweets we are reading!!

  7. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Daniel Barbarisi ?@DanBarbarisi
    Orioles crowd is surprisingly adept at coordinated chants considering none of them have ever been to Camden Yards before

    ———

    Sweet burn. I wish TBS was showing the pregame introductions instead of a boring sitcom.

  8. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Watching on Japanese TV means I get an intimate view of whatever Ichiro is doing. He just went down the dugout fist bumping everyone & talking to each of the players. Had something funny to say to Tony Pena.

  9. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Bring on the fake fans….
    ————————

    Mark Feinsand?@BloggingBombers

    The crowd just did an “O-R-I-O-L-E-S ORIOLES!” cheer like the Eagles do. In 12 years covering games here, I can’t recall ever hearing that.

  10. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    How can TBS have Ripken do this series?

  11. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    Since when did Soccer style chants start being used at baseball games?

  12. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    It’s a sham. Ripken and Smoltz, who lost 2 World Series to the Yankees.

  13. Madrugador October 7th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    Are you kidding me?! Cal Ripkin doing the game for TBS?

  14. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    He’s Mr. Oriole.

  15. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    LOL
    ————-

    David Waldstein?@DavidWaldstein

    Here’s what you need to know at home. The PA announcer just said that TBS is coming on air so start acting like tools.

  16. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    Ripken and Smoltz – sure we’ll get unbiased analysis.

  17. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Going to have to take that crowd out of it early. That place is absolutely rocking.

  18. jc in tw October 7th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    good thing today is Japanese holiday. I can stay home and watch Game 1.
    let’s go Yankees!

  19. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Lets go Jeter!!!

    Start us off!! Give CC some runs!!

  20. theREALkevin October 7th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Gotta love TBS. The guys they have calling the game are Cal Ripken, a legendary Oriole, and John Smoltz, an ex-Brave who was beaten down by the Yanks. Really unbiased I’m sure.

  21. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    And Ernie Johnson, former Braves commentator.

  22. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Ripken and Smoltz – sure we’ll get unbiased analysis.
    ————

    It’s pretty obscene. They could simply stick a Yankee in there too.

  23. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Ichiro tries to bunt on Hammels early in the game. He has a bad knee and wears a knee brace. Probably not the Yanks but another team might try to put pressure on him to field his position.

  24. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Here we go!

  25. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Go Yankees!!!!

  26. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Mickey and Minnie could be announcing this game, I could care less.

    GO yankees!!

  27. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Jerkface, keep us up to date. We need to know these things about Ichiro!

  28. Jeff NJ October 7th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Let’s do it! 11 wins to go to 28!

  29. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Pumped up!!

    Go yanks!

  30. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Is Ripken’s Yankee hate supposed to balance out Smoltz’s Yankee hate?

    Good grief. Thankfully, this broadcast won’t be simulcast into the Yanks’ dugout.

  31. Jeff NJ October 7th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Like to work the count and get a few early runs, show the birds who the big brother is here

  32. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    We should bunt on this guy. Bad knees and the rain.

  33. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Go Yanks!!
    Go CC!!!!!
    Score Early & Often!!!

    Lets get it on Yankees——-

  34. kd October 7th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    game time. let’s go yankees

  35. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I really can’t believe that Ripken is doing the game. He is trying to sell people on the O’s having real fans. Yeah ok the “fans” showed up at the end of September.

  36. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Best record team opens playoff on the road!
    Thanks!

  37. Ys Guy October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Let’s Go Yankees!

  38. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Pretty sure he’s a strike thrower, doesn’t walk a lot of people if i remember correctly

  39. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Go Yankees!

  40. angpan October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Ripken just said “we” when referring to the Orioles.

  41. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Jeter!

  42. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

  52. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Go Jeter!!! I guess Ernie Johnson is in the broadcast to be the one to say positive things about the Yanks.

  53. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Go Ichiro!!!

  54. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Early ‘n Often …

  75. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Hope the O’s fans enjoyed their extra time not losing during the rain delay.

  76. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Now Arod has to do his job to get him over

  77. Lost October 7th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    How good is Ichiro-san !

  78. tucker October 7th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Is Ichiro ready for this? Nice

  79. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Awful. Just awful

  80. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Why?

  81. Jeff NJ October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    ichiro u suck!

  82. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    What in the crap was that. A bunt and steal?

  83. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    ICHI-NO!!!!!

  84. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    oo man…at least hes being aggressive

  85. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Why?

  86. Madrugador October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Really, first out at third?

  87. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Aww!

  88. Ys Guy October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Let’s Go Arod!

  89. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    What in the world is he doing??!! With no one out??? That was really, really stupid. That totally took the pressure off of the pitcher.

  90. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Nice hit.

    Would not have run there.

  91. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Is Ichiro kidding me?

  92. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    ugh

  93. Pat M. October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Get Jeter moving on this pitch

  94. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    What a beautiful marriage that has been – Ichiro and the Yankees. Superstar status, superstar player (even when he’s thrown at third).

    :)

  95. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    That made absolutely no sense

  96. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Good start got offset

  97. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Im not going to be angry at Ichiro there. That was a smart try. I like the aggressiveness with this team’s RISP failures and situational hitting failures.

  98. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Wieters is the best defensive catcher in the league, so not sure why you’d try to steal third, but he was a hair away from being safe.

  99. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    ichiro is going to bat .700 in the playoffs…

  100. Lost October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Relax, I’d rather have him aggressive then asleep. He’s already got us on the board. /take chill pill.

  101. I Am Winning October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Terrible first out of the postseason. I don’t know what the mind set was there. He was out by a foot at least. ARod squaring to bunt too? I don’t understand.

  102. Jeff NJ October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    a-looking

  103. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Low

  104. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    get that out of your systemm arod.. dont want to see that anymore

  105. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Excellent start to the game but incredibly stupid steal attempt by Ichiro.

  106. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Wieters is the best defensive catcher in the league, so not sure why you’d try to steal third, but he was a hair away from being safe.

    The ball beat him by a mile. It was a terrible decision

  107. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Arod and Tex need to earn their $$$ this series.

  108. Pat M. October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    I must be getting the feed on a delay here on the coast

  109. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    We’re trying to put pressure on their d. Unfortunately it didnt work there and of course, with no outs you question it, more with Cano soon to be at the plate.

  110. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    aggressive baseball in the playoffs – i’ll take it any time.

    LET’S GO YANKS!!!

  111. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    “Relax, I’d rather have him aggressive then asleep. He’s already got us on the board. /take chill pill.”

    :D

    THIS x 100

  112. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Why would Ichiro do that? Still wondering….may have been 2 or 3-0

  113. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    One is better than none.

  114. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Your welcome O’s

    We helped you out

    Lets go CC

  115. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    i feel the ichiro thing will be like mattingly in 95. i think he’s gonna go nuts on the o’s…

  116. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    What the heck kind of crap was that?

    What a rally killer.

    At least bunt Ichiro to third.

  117. Jeff NJ October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Guess we’ll take it. There are times when 1 run is enough for CC, knock wood.

  118. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    No worries, Hammel will be surrendering some runs tonight. We need CC to hold em off the board and we’ll be fine.

  119. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    The good news is the yanks seem to have come ready to play. Ichiro stealing was bad luck, any other pitch he would have been in there but he throw a fast ball. I like them taking chances like that, sucks it didn’t work out.

  120. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Hmmm, Jerkface, on American TV he was more than a hair away from being safe. I will refrain from using a metaphor involving any Japanese items to indicate how close he was from being safe.

  121. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    This has to be the worst broadcast team ever!!!! TBS should be ashamed with this trio..

  122. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Go C!!!

  123. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    That’s a dumb play.
    This is basic baseball 123, u just don’t do that.

  124. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Brappy – Ichiro’s first and last trip to the postseason was a heck of along time ago. Maybe it was postseason adrenaline.

    He’s done more than enough for us in the season to be forgiven for whatever he did that didn’t work. And I’m sure he will do more than enough for us in the postseason.

    Men, not machines.

    ;)

  125. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    It takes a perfect throw by any catcher to nail Ichiro stealing, and it was a perfect throw. Good decision, bad outcome.

  126. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Being aggressive against arguably the best defensive catcher in MLB is just straight up reckless and dumb baseball.

  127. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Ok, that obviously couldve been a bigger inning but cut this team some slack, they are being agressive. We got the lead. Let’s see how CC pitches.

  129. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Nick,

    Tag was applied as his foot was hitting the bag. He wasn’t running into the ball already being there. It was still not a smart decision given the catcher & situation.

    Ichiro was probably caught up in his own legend.

  130. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 8:51 pm
    This has to be the worst broadcast team ever!!!! TBS should be ashamed with this trio..
    ——–

    Anti-Yankee sentiment plays nationally I guess…

  131. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Ichiro rips one to the gap and gets an RBI first at bat and you are going to say, “Ichiro you suck?”. Your joking right ? If not, wowzer buddy I feel sorry for you.

  132. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    They boo tex?

  133. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    thank god tex is back at first base!!

  134. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Nice way for Tex to start postseason – great defensive play. LET’S GO CC!!!!!!!

  135. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Aggressive is good, over aggressive is not. Over aggressive there. Ichiro maybe too pumped up.

  136. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Aggressively exploit the Orioles’ weaknesses, not their strengths.

  137. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    If the bottom of the lineup was up ok try it. But with Arod and Cano coming up it doesn’t make any sense with no one out. Stupid but hopefully the Yanks get a lot of good swings on Hammel.

  138. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Hammel is going to have to be better then he was in the first or the Yankees are going to hammer him.

    Now we need CC to take care of business.

  139. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    I think Ichiro is a little bit too pumped up right now. First postseason since 2001 for him. He’ll settle in.

  140. John M Millport October 7th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    quite a few calls for strikes wrong in that innings.
    hope is is as consistant with CC

  141. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    love the Jeter give the ball to Cano after waving him off then Cano gives it back to him to throw to CC. Pals!

  142. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Expert baseball opinion: I hope we hit in this series and the Orioles don’t.

  143. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Nice inning, C!

  144. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Nice start!

  145. MG October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    CC is hitting his spots tonight, the O’s are in trouble…

  146. Ys Guy October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    dominant first inning!

  147. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Probably a slow track w/ the rain for Ichiro.

  148. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    thank u CCC

  149. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Solid CC and D in the bottom first. Nice!

  150. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Eight more of those please.

  151. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    And that “steroids” chant at A-Rod is probably one of the dumber things I’ve heard from a fanbase. O’s fans didn’t even know baseball existed back in 2009 based on their attendance.

  152. Lost October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    C.C. just made that look very very easy.

  153. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Dominant

  154. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Beautiful CC

    LOVE IT!

  155. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    1-2-3 Ahhhhh CC! Did he throw a ball?

  156. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    C!

  157. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Good 1st inning for CC. His command looked really good in that inning.

  158. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Jerkface, I am suggesting to you that the Japanese broadcast you’re enjoying used sophisticated methods to distort the picture you saw and make the play look closer than it was so as to favor Ichiro.

    Prove me wrong — if you can.

  159. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    That’s EXACTLY what we needed. Yankees now need to take pitches. Put some men on base. Hope to build a 3 or 4-0 lead and let CC do work.

  160. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Ichiro could have been caught up in the moment, or he could have sensed some disarray in the stadium after the O’s had given up a run & with a runner on 2nd decided to try and catch them not paying attention.

    I’d like to think it was the latter, and he simply miscalculated, picking a poor time to steal.

  161. MG October 7th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Bad play by Ichiro but a K and soft fly ball don’t get him home from 2nd, it’s 1-0 and CC looks like he is dealing tonight…

  162. Duh Innings II October 7th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Ichiro still thinks he’s 30.

    Stupid move by him and don’t tell me that SBA was ordered from the bench.

    If the Yanks lose this game by a run, Ichiro is to blame and he should be benched for Game 2. Let him play late innings defense.

  163. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Nice first inning. Came out of it with the lead and CC was solid.

    Just the kind of start we needed.

  164. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Lets be happy Ichrio at least got a double and knocked in Jeter..

    Time to focus on the 2nd inning!!

    Come on SWISH!

  165. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    duh shut up

  166. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    hammel has no command thus far.. make him throw pitches..

  167. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Walk, let him work

  168. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Love Swish looking at pitches. Let’s hope Tex can NOT hit into a DP

  169. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Hammel has nothing tonight….

  170. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Gotta send swisher here. Maybe a delayed steal.

  171. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    He was over aggressive at the wrong time, there are a lot worse things that he could have done. And after watching alex and Cano, it might not have cost them anything.

  172. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Ichiro is far from a concern on this team. And honestly, with the way the Yanks hit with RISP at times, there was zero guarantee they get him in from 2nd with no outs.

  173. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Nice walk for Swish. It would be nice to see positive things happen for Swish and Tex early in this game. You don’t want the doubt to get in their minds early.

  174. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Right down the middle

  175. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Come on Tex!!!

  176. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 8:59 pm
    duh shut up

    ++++++

    Really dude. STFU.

  177. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Make him work. He can’t spot his fastball at all right now.

  178. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    If the ichiro play matters at the end of this game we will have failed multiple other times.

  179. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Yankees need to continue to be patient. Let Hammel toss pitches.

  180. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    We gotta take advantage here, Hammels isnt looking great

  181. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Tex way late on the FB.

  182. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Tex still isn’t right.

  183. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    meatball pitch to Tex. .. terrible.

  184. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Grandy may use the warehouse here for a carem.

  185. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Teix still not quite right with his timing.

  186. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    POP up… That pitch should have been hammered!!!!

  187. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Tex should have rocked that

  188. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    This guy is throwing a lot of meatballs, have to hammer him.

  189. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Too bad we don’t have the real Tex with his timing. That pitch was right there to hit. Unfortunately we will probably see that all series.

  190. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Lets go Yanks.. Get some hits!

  191. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Nice play.. Hit it hard..

  192. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    If we had vintage A-Rod and Teix, not the decimated versions of today…

  193. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Wow, Reynolds picked that one..

  194. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Good play by Reynolds. Grandy smoked that.

  195. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Hammel is really not impressive. The Yanks have to take advantage of these pitches right over the plate. He is either throwing balls or pitches right over the middle.

  196. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Who’s the TBS announcer who talks like he has a mouthful of marbles?

  197. hardwired7 October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    “What a play by Reynolds!!!”

    Yeah, it was hit right at him.

  198. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    My prediction is that Russ is series MVP

  199. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Alright, we are all over him. Just need to hold this lead so we don’t press and we will open this up by the middle innings.

  200. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    ya bench Ichiro cos he made a mistake. clowns on here would have loved it if he stole 3rd

  201. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Waving towels–really.

  202. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    The big question for the Yanks is going to be how much they get from Tex, Swish and Granderson.

  203. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Tbs crews are just disgusting

  204. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Tar-

    I’ve had a long standing theory on the presence of rally towels. If you have to give those things out to your fans, you have a terrible fanbase.

  205. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    we gotta do damage and score enough runs before the Os go to there pen.

  206. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    I love how the “experts” are talking about how to get the Yanks out. Unreal just announce the game.

  207. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    The Yankees inability to handle a hanging curve ball is worrying.

    That play by Reynolds was nothing. It was right to him. Maybe the throw was good.

  210. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Throw the 3rd baseman on that list, Captain.

  211. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    36 pitches for Hammel through 2.

  212. tucker October 7th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    Not worried about Granderson as much as I am Tex or Swish. Granderson was exceptional in 2010 and decent last year in postseason (not to mention those incredible diving catches).

    Tex’s timing appears to be off.

    Hoping CC really has it going tonight

  215. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    “The Yankees inability to handle a hanging curve ball is worrying.”

    Yep they have missed a few already. But his FB is nothing special so maybe they need to sit on it instead.

  216. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    It’s simple sports marketing:
    Yankee hatred sells nationwide.
    Those of us fans who have no choice but TBS for viewing will stick around AND they get to keep the haters by bashing.

  217. MG October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    that’s 2X that CC has gotten into the kitchen on a right handed batter with his fastball and gotten popups-a really good sign…

  218. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Swisher hit the eephus pitch. That’s about it.

  219. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    CC seems really into it so far. Granted it’s just the 2nd inning, but I feel like he thinks he needs to re-prove himself to us fans after ’09

  220. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Obviously they know the game. My point was who needs to hear all of that when we are trying to watch the game. Instead they should just announce what happens on the field.

  221. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    It’s true. Martin is not a MLB caliber hitter.

  222. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    2nd time through the order and we are going to punish Hammel. Cookies are being served constantly.

    Time do to some eating.

  223. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    A great omen–we got Wieters out. Now get Reynolds CC!

  224. Rich K. October 7th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

  225. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Machado could be a big problem for the Yanks. Seems like an annoyance this series.

  235. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    CC looks really good. Hopefully it continues so it keeps pressure off of the offense so they put more runs on the board. Yanks have to hit those hanging curveballs from Hammel.

  236. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    These guys have done nothing to show they can’t be objective . U guys decided before the game started that they wouldn’t be impartial and that’s that. Don’t talk about it because its been a very balanced broadcast.

    Just saying, how can you be mad at the broadcasters saying that about Martin’s stats ? It’s true he can only hit a slow FB. Oh but he got hot recently.. yeah with mediocre pitching and teams who’s seasons were over ready to home. Man please, think for yourselves, not what people tell you to think.

  250. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Carlo, thus far, when the Orioles are pitching, it’s been about what they can do to retire the Yankees batters, and when the Orioles are hitting, it’s been about what the Orioles hitters can do to succeed. The Yankees arent even involved in this game, or so the TBS crew would have you believe.

  251. MG October 7th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    Smoltz really knows pitching and communicates it really well, I don’t know what the complaints are other than some of you think every national broadcast is anti-Yankee, like it makes a difference in the result of the game.

    Ripkin doesn’t give you as much but I’ll withhold judgment on his value-TBS would have been better off with bringing in Ken Singleton as an analyst (based on experience) but Ripken will give them higher ratings.

  259. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    They are not bothering me, but Jeters hit to lead-off the game was a “seeing eye hit”. Ok whatever he only does like every freaking game.

  266. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Raul and the Yankees are working Hammel. They just need to get a few extra base hits. Solid at bat for Ibanez.

  267. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Hammel at 45 pitches.

  268. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    That pitch might have been high but with 2 strikes it was a bit close. Good approaches so far…. hopefully it leads to good results.

  269. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    i like the o’s fans chanting. brings some life to the game. the new yankee stadium seems so lifeless at times…

  270. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    What are we doing?????

    This guy has nothing. He’s throwing up batting practice.

  271. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Why Jeter rarely takes a pitch on 1-0 is beyond me.

  272. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Not sure why Jeter had to swing a curve down & away on the 2nd pitch. You have to be really fooled to go after a pitch like that. Not like you’re gonna do anything with it.

  273. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    DJ- 100% right. Its terrible how quiet the stadium us UNLESS there is a rally. Drives me crazy.. Im hoping to go wednesday or thursday and come playoff time, I will be getting ” Lets go Yankee” chants going and I go with the intention to lose my voice.

    1-0 pitches are usually good to hit. The pitcher doesn’t want to fall behind 2-0

    that one wasn’t a good pitch to hit but you asked why he rarely takes them. Most of the time they are good pitches. That wasn’t good though.

    CC! Lets keep it up!! 1-2-3!

  280. Jdiddyshownopitty October 7th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    2nd time around needs to produce runs

  281. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    1-0 pitches are usually good to hit. The pitcher doesn’t want to fall behind 2-0

    I think being willing to swing in hitters counts is good, but swinging no matter what because the pitch might be good is not. Just like the difference between taking 100% & taking because the pitch looks like a ball.

    Of course that is called plate discipline overall.

  282. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Did anyone hear this racist pile of crap, Cal Ripken.

    Even though Ichiro is Japanese, he said the Orioles are trying to stop a “chinker” to left field.

  283. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

  284. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    JF-

    Yeah that wasn’t a good pitch to hit at all. Not sure what Jeter was doing there. But I would say the majority of the time 1-0 pitches are pretty good to jump on. But yeah, I wouldn’t automatically swing 1-0 but I don’t think Jeter has that mindset at all.

    Lew Ford sucks. He should never be on base. It’s like if Chris Stewart got on base for us.

    CC just about threw that away.

  313. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Hopefully CC can limit the damage here. Especially with a lefty at the plate.

    and. just like that…. Single, broken base hit and single

  320. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Ouch…let’s get out of the inning without any more damage…

  323. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    CC has to be better agiainst lefties. He used to dominate them. That is terrible for 2 lefties to do the damage in that inning. Terrible..

  324. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    SO F*CKING ANNOYING.

  325. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

  326. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

  327. Lost October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Baseball.

    A great pitcher with good stuff is getting knocked around by no-so-good hitters, yet a so-so pitcher with not good stuff throwing meatballs is lights out to very good hitters.

    You can’t make this stuff up.

  328. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    I don’t understand where McLouth came from. He was absolutely atrocious on a few different teams.

  329. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Jumping on the first pitch strike.

  330. blake October 7th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    here come the O’s and their collection of crappy players that are good all the sudden….Nate Mclouth…..Lew Ford…..Chris Davis…..unreal.

  331. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    3 singles and a bunt…2 runs.
    You don’t need to hit the ball 450 ft. to score runs.

  332. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    We need to come out and get some runs. Enough of this bull crap against Hammel. Stop guessing pitches. See the ball, hit the ball.

    everyone take a breath and move away from the ledge

  334. blake October 7th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    the Yanks “should” score way more than 2…..but we’ll see.

  335. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    That was a terrible inning. Lefties used to not have any chance agaisnt CC and now they always reach base. Lew Ford and McClouth 2 losers who have been in the minors for the last couple of years. Unreal. Now the offense really has to wake up.

  336. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    I wonder if any of those filled-to-the-rafters, haven’t bothered with the O’s in years, fans feel in the least bit embarrased to be there tonight in full regalia, acting like the O’s have been their greatest love forever and ever.

  338. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Now can the Yanks wake up offensively? Hammels has thrown more meat balls than CC that inning and we have only scored 1!

  339. MG October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I don’t know how Hammel can be throwing bp stuff up there when his fastball has been consistently 93-94 with some movement.

    CC made a few bad pitches that inning, the Yankees will score more runs…

  340. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I think a lot of fans abandoned Camden because of how disgusted they were with Angelos. I can understand that… why support a guy who does nothing like that. But the ones that didn’t know baseball existed before this year are useless.

  341. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    It’s funny how Cashman tried to sign McLouth this year but he signed with O’s. He said he thought he had a better chance to make it to the majors. Now a scrub is hurting them.

  342. JM October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    JackCurryYES Since Ichiro was caught stealing 3d in 1st, Yankees are 0 for 8 with walk off Hammel. Bad choice by Ichiro. Helped Hammel bounce off ropes.

  343. lil m October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Okay, let’s see if the Yankee offense can get the lead back.

  344. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

  347. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    I can stomach it if it’s Wieters or Jones, but Ford and McLouth I can’t – they shouldn’t be the difference makers off of CC

  348. igotid88 October 7th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

  350. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Another pitch hung right over the middle that Arod took. Then he swings at garbage up in the zone. They haven’t done anything since Ichiro got thrown out.

    That’s a really nice at bat. Took 2 pretty good breaking balls easily.

  358. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Cool! A-Rod works a walk. Heat up, Cano!

  359. Lost October 7th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Yanks bats seem to struggle a lot when a pitcher is all over the place, even more so if the pitcher throws a lot of off-speed pitches.

  360. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Good job by Arod to walk. Now they need Cano to do some damage.

  361. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Good walk by Arod. C’mon Robbie.

  362. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    90% new stadium….larger footprint loses sound and, more importantly, too many corporate seats given the pricing.

    10% team being a bit one dimensional, old, and thus kinda boring.

  363. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Cano of course is 0-2 after a walk.

  364. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Cano has to look for a pitch to drive. Those pitches are off the plate.

  365. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Cano seems just a little bit behind.

  366. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

  388. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Is that a Camden Yard’s patch on the O’s hats?? It looks like a White Castle patch.

    Man I wish I had White Castle..

    meatball to swish completely fooled. taking a break from the computer.

  390. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    I really think that this series is going to continue to find Tex, Swish and Granderson. The Yanks success will be on how those guys hit. Swish has been patient and we saw that Tex doesn’t have any timing.

  403. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Well done Swish. A-Rod and Swisher have earned those two bases.

    Hammel at 70+ pitches.

  404. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Good at bat for Swish. I hate to say it but Tex isn’t who you want up in this spot. He probably can’t square anything up.

  405. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    we are crushing all fast balls inside…2 found reynolds…the others were foul…

  414. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    O’s aren’t lucky. Reynolds is an MLB first baseman. He may not be an All Star, but he’s not Mauro Gomez. We just need to score, that’s it.

  415. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Tex is making pretty solid contact. His timing is still just a little off. But I think he looks pretty good….

  422. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Tex was just so excited to put the ball in play…

    Maybe he’ll click in now.

  423. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Baserunning blunders going to kill us.

    2 runs now potentially we’ve lost.

  424. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    What the f is Tex doing??!?!?! Terrible baserunning so far. He is soo slow you can’t go to 2nd base on that.

  425. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Atta boy, tied it. But ugh

  430. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Man, Tex, you know you can’t run…even without the bad calf!

    Good hit though.

  431. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    I’m more pissed about Swish not scoring than Tex being out there.

  432. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Weak.

  433. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Davis has a cannon in RF. Read the scouting report guys.

    Well this is silly. Go get em Russ Mart.

  445. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Nice run scored but that was insane. Girardi has to be fuming on the bench.

  446. blake October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Hammel’s pitch count is gettin up there early

  447. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    I dont believe it. Teixeira can barely run, yet he went to 2nd, after waltzing down the 1st base line, then he hustles to 2nd.

    Why doesnt Swisher go home with the throw coming into 2nd?

  448. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Unreal. Should be about 4/5-2

  449. tucker October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

  451. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    They should be dominating this game but 2-2 is alright. Tex probably should have stayed at 1st there. But he crushed 3 pitches that at bat. That’s a huge positive.

  452. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    The good news is the Yankees bats are getting to this guy. Aside from Vladimir Cano they know that he’s throwing a lot of balls and they can’t sit back and wait.

    with that said, I am really taking a break now.

  453. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    “I’m more pissed about Swish not scoring than Tex being out there.”

    Yep. was he busting it from the crack of the bat? That was either gone, or off the wall.

  457. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    yeah, with 1st and 2nd…he has to pitch to granderson and all our lefties have been on his fastball…

  458. luis October 7th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Tar,

    I know ;) Thanks

    YF,

    Will do.. It it is turning out to be along night

    Even though we tied the game, Tex shouldn’t have gone for two there

  459. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Hammel has garbage and has thrown a lot of pitches so far. But 2 stupid base running mistakes could have cost him more pitches.

  460. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Classy fans. Cheer at a headhunting pitch

    “And it is very frustrating, you think ?”

    Nah. I think that if you look at baseball under a microscope you’re bound to get frustrated because nobody is 100% all the time. But Robby is good enough, enough of the time, that you just have to accept the few times that he might disappoint you.

    That is a sincere answer. It’s a team sport, and the team contributes in different ways each and every day. Some days one person will thrill you and the next day the same person may disappoint you. But there are 8 others in the lineup who may make up for it.

    I don’t get frustrated because what I care about is the final score. I’m hopeful to the 27th out.

  474. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    We’re working the starter, in a tied game.. I like this. This reminds me of old Yankees that worked the count and got to the pen arms early.

  475. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Hammel is throwing about one meatball per at bat. Yanks really not taking advantage so far.

  476. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Swisher went first to third on went amounted to be a very hard single.

  477. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Davis played it well off the wall and that ball was crushed. Swish probably would have been out at home barring a missed relay or absolutely terrible throw home.

    You watch the game every single night and you have not yet figured out that Cano is one of the most impatient hitters in the game ? That is a sincere response. Guess you might have missed that fact.

  479. MG October 7th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Cano is 24 for his last 40 and smoked the ball right at Reynolds, if you think complaining about him is the right thing to do I feel bad for your lack of baseball knowledge.

  480. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Hopefully CC can get back to dominating. That last inning was really dissapointing especially to 2 lefties.

  481. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Shame-

    O’s have a good ‘pen though. Seems like a lot of the 50/50 type plays are going against the Yanks right now.

  482. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Does not bode well…2 runs we’ve kicked so far.

    Hammer has been hittable – that slider to Martin he should’ve put into the seats.

    So far we’ve been too aggressive here.

  483. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    This game is really frustrating. How we’re not up 3, 4 or 5-1 right now is wild.

  484. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Trisha, also I am far from throwing in the towel. I still believe we are gonna win this game tonight and this series. IN fact, I believe we got just as good a chance as any winning the whole thing this year.

    P.S. I don’t have a microscope, but I do have something called common sense.

  485. blake October 7th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    looked like about a couple of feet from being 4-2 right now…..the O’s have some kind of lucky rabbit’s foot or something….Tex’s ball….Reynolds has caught 2 lasers….surely they’ll break through at some point.

  486. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Al really has gotten comfortable with those fly balls. He used to be a total basket case.

  487. blake October 7th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    hammel at 84 pitches through 4 though…..

  488. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    CC has thrown 34 pitches.

  489. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Hammel is at 84 pitches. The Yanks have to take advantage of his meatballs before it’s too late and he leaves the game.

  490. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Tyler – Just in terms of wearing them down, since some pitched yesterday as well, I like this. In a 5 game set.. it’d be nice to wear some of their top guys down. Force Buck’s hand.

  491. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Blake – if their luck doesn’t change this will be a very long excruciating week.

  492. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Shame-

    That would definitely be nice. I like the Yanks position. Despite the 2 runs, CC looks really good right now. They’ll get to the O’s staff. Some flukey stuff going on right now.

  493. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Hi all! Lets go Yankees!

    Cano isn’t the most patient hitter, true, but he is one of the best all natural hitters in the game. I do agree that if Robbie did have more patience he just might have to get himself a bat that said, “Lightening Boy” on it. He’d be scary.

    “You watch the game every single night and you have not yet figured out that Cano is one of the most impatient hitters in the game ? That is a sincere response. Guess you might have missed that fact.”

    .366 in his last 30 days, .600 in his last 7. Guess you might have missed that fact. His “impatience” seems not to have affected his ability to hit.

    It’s called perspective.

    Won’t be posting much… game is to intense.

    I am done worrying about ” what if” and the mistakes we have made. We got the pitch count up and went right back out and tied the game. Now lets get a lead for CC. Lets go Yanks!!

  509. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Raul had a good at bat last time around. Would like to see that result in a hit here to get us started. We’re two baserunners here from seeing their pen for 12+ outs.

  510. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    A base runner this inning and Hammel will probably be gone.

    O’s success in 1 run/extra innings is only partially a statistical anomaly. The O’s have a good bullpen which is a reason why teams outperform their run differential.

  532. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    O’s success in 1 run/extra innings is only partially a statistical anomaly. The O’s have a good bullpen which is a reason why teams outperform their run differential.

    ————————————–

    Teams that had better bullpen’s in the past don’t have that kind of winning %

  533. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    surprised that wasn’t called a strike

  534. Shame Spencer October 7th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Why has the terrible towel made an appearance at every game so far???

  535. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Please Ernie just shut up.

  536. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Awful offensive half inning.

  537. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    2 runs in 5 innings against this dreck. I can’t wait until next year when the O’s are under 500

  538. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    ichiro missed 2 fastballs right down the middle his last two at bats to strike out…

  539. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Triple – partially, I said partially.

  540. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Poor job by the O.

    Hammel was very hittable tonight.

  541. ConcernedCitizen October 7th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Really hope we get one more chance with Hammel.

  542. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    We are making Hammel look like Verlander… Seriously!?

  543. Eroc October 7th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Should this be a surprise? This is the playoff offense we’ve seen the last several years.

  544. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Hammel’s sinker is looking pretty good, but then it looks like he just leaves his 4-seamer right over the plate…and we’ve missed almost all of them. Frustrating.

  545. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    hi Trisha! I have good vibes for this series. Go yankees! They can do it!

  546. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    We are making Hammel look like Verlander… Seriously!?

    ——————————-

    as we did with Paul Byrd. Lately it only becomes news when the Yanks hit a starting pitcher in the post season

  547. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    CC can’t give up any more runs

  548. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    I’d think Hammel’s done. 99 pitches in 1st start since September 11th.

  549. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Still early guys. If CC can get us a 1-2-3 we have the meat of the order in the 6th

  550. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    We haven’t done that well against their pen aside from the couple of games that Strop blew.

  551. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Hammel at 99 pitches at least.

  552. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Bloop

  553. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    bloop luck single…i give up

  554. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    And now a bloop…

  555. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    The O’s with another lucky hit. Just unreal.

  556. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    “We have seen a lot of average pitchers shut down the Yanks in the play offs. So far this is another one of them. It just stinks because so many of the pitches are right there to hit.”

    I don’t know how many “average” pitchers there are in the playoffs.

  557. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Lol. Cano’s broken bat hit carries to the right fielder. Davis’ completely dies.

  558. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Especially starting game 1.

  559. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Closing on that point of the game where we don’t want the O’s to have a lead.

    Get through the 5th here and score in the 6th.

  560. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    It’s a strange game-the Yankees have hit two rockets that Reynolds grabbed, the O’s have two broken bat singles…

  561. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Come on, CC! Hold it here…

  562. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Come on CC a DP is in order.

  563. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    When did Chris Davis turn into Don Mattingly, and can the transformation be reversed?

  564. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    I wouldn’t say our offense looks nearly as bad as the last couple years…we hit into a little bit of bad luck as made some screwy baserunning moves tonght.

  565. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    wow Tex

  566. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Nice play!

  567. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    wow, what a play by Teix…

  568. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    unbelievable play by tex

  569. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    What a play by Tex!!! And what a load of garbage that was.

  570. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Nice play by Martin. That would have been trouble.

  571. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    What a play!! And their luck is freaking annoyingly amazing.

  572. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Bah, that’s a double play ball…lucky at all to get the out. Bah.

  573. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Nice play Russ. And Tex.

  574. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Wow nice play Mart!

  575. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Don’t know who’s more annoying/frustrating: Chris Davis or Lew Ford.

  576. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    If Ford ended up getting on from that I was going to turn this off.

  577. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Unbelievable. Bloops, checked swings…we hit the ball 800 mph and make outs.
    Tex earned a lot of today’s paycheck with that scoop.

  578. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Andino is another player who is a nobody who gets big hits

  579. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Nice play both sides.

  580. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    “It’s a strange game-the Yankees have hit two rockets that Reynolds grabbed, the O’s have two broken bat singles…”

    Yanks have hit a lot more hard balls….O’s have 25 horseshoes and rabbits foots

  581. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Wow. This O’s team really is beyond lucky.

  582. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  583. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    No.9 batter hits cc.

  584. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Andino. Jeeze lol seeing eye single

  585. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Yanks should learn from the O’s about hitting in these situations. Man!

  586. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Exactly what I just said. O’s are putting the ball in play and getting lucky on where ever they hit it. Another lucky inning for the O’s.

  587. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    need a K

  588. Duh Innings II October 7th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Cy Hammel on the mound folks.

    Lousy game by CC so far with him getting killed by the bottom of the order.

    .211 hitting Andino? Really? C’mon!

  589. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Good ballgame.

    This is a good Os team.

    Which we should be leading 4-2.

  590. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    nice job CC giving it up to a .211 hitter. DP here please.

  591. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Come on. Ground ball, turn 2.

  592. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    I don’t know how many “average” pitchers there are in the playoffs.

    We’ve started playoff games with AJ burnett & Freddy Garcia. Every pitching staff has its share of average to below average pitchers. Hammel has been awful for his entire career. He had a good first half & then didn’t even pitch in the second half until now.

    Being in the playoffs does not mean every player that is there is good.

  593. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    “Yanks should learn from the O’s about hitting in these situations. ”

    You mean like bloops, swinging bunts and seeing eye singles?

  594. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    I don’t know how many “average” pitchers there are in the playoffs.

    Come on, CC!

  596. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    No bite on these breaking pitches.

    He’s regressed a bit…

  597. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Come on CC

  598. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Like I said. 1 mistake is letting McLouth do it the 1st time. He hits it here that’s not a mistake

  599. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Martin is doing a nice job receiving pitches tonight.

  600. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    I swear ONE MORE BS HIT & i Will slap CC so hard that ill straighten up his cap!

  601. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    COME ON CC.

  602. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    yes!!!!!

  603. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    The Yankees, year to year, are worse than the league average by like 20% when pitching against the bottom of a batting order. It is bizarre.

  604. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Nice pitch!

  605. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    One more!

  606. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    that was huge CC.

  607. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    One moew

  608. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    One more, C!

  609. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Strike 3 come on CC hold Em here

  610. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Nice pitch.

  611. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    A minor leaguer thinking he’s going to get a borderline pitch against a future HOF’er. Get out of here McLouth.

  612. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Big out for CC. Now he has to get Hardy.

  613. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Where was that pitch??

  614. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Jeeze were was that one.

  615. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    should be 0 and 2

  616. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Phenomenal Strike 3 for CC. He’s gotta get JJ

  617. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Don’t let up CC.

  618. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Martin is really having a great game defensively

  619. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    This game (and series) aside, I like JJ Hardy.

  620. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Two nice stops for Martin

  621. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Martin making a lot of tough blocks this inning

  622. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Nice block Martin.

  623. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Martin is a good catcher. Really good.

  624. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Cc highest at 93?

  625. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Martin has earned his money behind the plate tonight. He’s saving runs right now.

  626. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    BIG!!! CC!!!!

  627. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Great job CC

  628. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Huge stop right there

  629. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Great job CC!

  630. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Solid CC!!!

  631. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    We got this. Time to take the lead and never let it go!! lets go boys.

  632. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice bounce back! Cc

  633. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    whew, CC, Russ and Tex. Huge

  634. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice escape job by cc

  635. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice to shut them down, CC!

    Offense, you are due big time!

  636. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice job CC! Good plays behind the dish by Martin and we stay tied. Let’s get some hits to fall and bust this game open.

  637. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice work CC. Offense needs to score this inning. The longer this game is tied, the worse it is for the Yanks.

  638. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nice job by CC. Now the offense has to wake up before it’s too late. Not hitting Verlander fine but no excuses against this scrub Hammel. They had so many balls to hit tonight.

  639. Tyler October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    CC dug deep there man. Assists from Martin/Tex. Now lets go offense!

  640. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Atta Big Boy!

  641. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    My username says it all

  642. Nilsson October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    CC painted the black all around the zone like nobody’s business to escape this jam. Nice stops by Russell.

  643. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Lets score some runs this inning! 99 pitches for hammels

  644. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Nice job by CC, he made good pitches when it counted.

    Hammel didn’t get to pitch game 1 of the ALDS because he’s terrible, Showalter knows baseball and Hammel pitched very well for him this year before the knee injury.

    At the same time, the Yankees have hit in bad luck tonight, they will score more runs shortly…

  645. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    That is what we need from the ace, get out of trouble and leave the runners stranded.

  646. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Time for some more runs…

  647. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Martin doing his patented Patrick Roy impersonation.

  648. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Great job CC. The offense needs to get Hammels out of the game. He’s at 99 pitches now.

  649. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Very nice job by CC getting around their continuing string of little bloops, bleeders, dunks, and dips. Please let there be some Yankee justice tonight!

  650. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Lets go Offense, enough is enough

  651. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Alex is going to put one in the seats.

  652. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Hammel?

  653. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Let’s go Yanks offense!!!

  654. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Yanks have to take pitches. Put men on base right now.

  655. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    i thought arod ditched all those seeds in his mouth…

  656. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Great job by the announcers calling out these barbaric fans cheering when their pitcher throws a ball at an opposing players head

  657. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Arod just can’t get that FB

  658. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    That would’ve been gone a few years ago.

  659. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Crooked number for the Yanks in the 6th. I see a 4 in their future…

  660. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    We have to knock one of the players down before the night is over

  661. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Man Alex has got to cheat a little bit and get to those pitches.

  662. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Alex just can’t catch up to a FB anymore.

    Sad.

  663. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Man, five years ago A Rod would have hit at least two of those balls all the way to NYC.

  664. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    That 2-0 fastball Alex used to destroy

  665. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Will Arod ever hit another HR?

  666. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    92 MPH meatballs with no movement

  667. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    I feel a home run from Robbie

  668. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    i think arod needs to go to a lighter bat and lose another 10-15 pounds this offseason. he’s too big for his batspeed now.

  669. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Not with a bang, but with a whimper

  670. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    cano is swing mode…………

  671. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Cano has to have some patience. He is just swinging at anything in sight tonight.

  672. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Cano really chasing anything. Not good.

  673. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Arod just can’t catch up to the heat anymore. I long for the days of watching ABombs from ARod. Now he is just a table setter type.

  674. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    ARod is a mess

  675. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    I don’t remember…has Cano taken a pitch today?

  676. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Cano is a bit over aggressive tonight

  677. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Hammer at 107 pitches!

    So much for a bum knee.

  678. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Cano, sigh

  679. yanks 27 October 7th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    They need some youth and athleticism in the lineup in the worst way. These guys just can’t catch up to good fastballs and are too vulnerable to breaking stuff

  680. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Sucky Can mode right now. Such a maddening player.

  681. ConcernedCitizen October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    I was expecting this from A-Rod. But from Robbie? I’m genuinely surprised.

  682. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Sucky Cano*

  683. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Waitin on the homer

  684. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Will Arod ever hit another HR?

    ~

    Yes, you just need to show up early for BP and you might see one.

  685. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    3 days off may have not been the best thing for Cano the way he way swinging.

  686. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Hammel threw him 5 balls and he swung 4 times.
    Chill out Robby.

  687. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    seems the 3 day layoff has hurt the offense tonight. Nice job Swish!

  688. djsunyc October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    swish with 3 awesome at bats tonight…

  689. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Come on offense!!!

  690. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Shocking that wasn’t caught, with the way the game has been going.

    Tex hr?

  692. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Cano took one pitch that at bat, that was above his head. He’s in “I can hit anything” mode.

  693. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Swish has shown a great eye today

  694. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Hammel’s ERA last 30 days. 2.45. I’d take that 24-7 and twice on Sundays. He’s been injured. Just coming off an injury.

    **************

    “Nate Robertson
    Kenny Rogers
    Jeremy Bonderman
    Jake Westbrook
    Paul Byrd
    Joe Blanton
    Brian Duensing
    Nick Blackburn
    Tommy Hunter
    Rick Porcello”

    All of whom have also had very good games. Hammel is hardly at the end of his career!

    Geesh

  695. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Amazing. A bullet that actually got through the infield.
    And Hammel is out.

  696. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    This is the bad Cano when he isn’t looking for pitches to drive and is just swinging like a crazy man. It’s hard to watch the offense look this pathetic.

  697. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    We should have taken a ton more pitches there. Oh well. Lets go yankees! Lets get this.

  698. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Swisher keeps his ho streak. Unfortunately Cano is back to being undisciplined.

    And there goes Hammels, another bad pitcher we made lool like an ace. Man…

  699. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Were were all this O’s fans the past 10 years!?
    Bandwagoners much!?

  700. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Let’s hope a lefty is coming in to flip Tex around

  703. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Hey! Celebrate the good news. Lots of people were convinced that Swish was going to be a career postseason disasaster!

    Postseason games are typically not high-scoring affairs, though of course some have been.

    Don’t necessarily expect Yankee blowouts throughout the postseason.

  704. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Both Cano and Arod have good numbers against Hammel, they just didn’t do it tonight, that’s baseball…

  705. Asd October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Playoff Swish on base all three times? I’m shocked, but pleased!

  706. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Tex swingin it pretty good tonight…….

  707. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Swish STOPPPP! thank u :D phewww

  708. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Thanks for turning Teix around, Buck.

  709. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Okay here we go…2 outs runners in scoring pos… Can we make it happen????

  710. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Nice piece of hitting, Teix. Heat up!

  711. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    I like this match-up COme on Grandy

  712. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Nice hit by Tex, Big at bat for Granderson.

  713. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    C’mon Grandy Man, mix it up with love and make the world taste good……..

    the luck continues

  719. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    I need visual evidence that he caught that!!!!!!

  720. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Oh well

  721. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Wow, he didn’t even see the ball…..

  722. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    At least it wasn’t a strikeout

  723. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    What Fricking bad luck we have. 1 ballpark has that goofy corner and we happen to be playing in it.

  724. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    He caught the frickin ball with his head turned away and eyes closed!

  725. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    You just gotta laugh

  726. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    I don’t have good feeling now.

  727. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    The Chris Davis Show.

    So Far.

  728. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    R u kidding me, guy wasn’t even looking at it

  729. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    The big fails once again. Not a surprise but a frustrating game so far.

  730. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    I’m speechless…

  731. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    that’s unbelievable-Davis didn’t see the ball until the last second because it cleared the stands in front of him…

  732. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Oh come on! He didn’t even see that ball!

  733. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    When is it going to stop… :D all I can do is smile and shake my head.

  734. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    All of whom have also had very good games. Hammel is hardly at the end of his career!

    Geesh

    No one is saying they at the end of their careers, or incapable of throwing a good game, but that these are AVERAGE or below average pitchers on starting staffs. Good god, if you’re going to go with the ‘anyone can have a good game at any time’ mentality why bother to spend the money on starting pitching? Hammels era the last 30 days means less than nothing, he pitched 8 innings since july 13 and did not even pitch in the last 20 days.

  735. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    theres no reason for this turd Ernie Johnson to be yelling what a catch on that. Theyre just trying too hard to be extra biased against the Yankees.

  736. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    All I know is that Nick Swisher is horribly unclutch and the worst player in post season history. The stats say so.

  737. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    ball just happen to fall in where the stands go in like that….unreal….

  738. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    “Average pitchers have good games. Otherwise they would be awful pitchers”

    :)

    Fine. Then I guess Hammel is entitled to a good game!

  739. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    This game has “meant to be” written all over it. Guess its the yankees job to finally put an end to all this nonsense. Shut Em down this inning and let’s go bats!

  740. austinmac October 7th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Now to beat the tough O’s bullpen. It’s good to see Swisher and Tex swinging well. I’m not sure AROD can drive much of anything. I agree the 2-0 fastball was the pitch he hits the best at thigh high.

  741. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Have any announcers ever been unbiased against the Yankees? Ever? Anyone? I’m talking national broadcast announcers, not Sterling, Kay and all them

  742. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    If that was the Yanks on the field the ball lands fair and the outfielder gets lost in the corner. The O’s magic has to end eventually.

  743. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    WHere was that pitch????????

  744. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    I thought that catch was routine.. No?

  745. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    We just need a hit like Ibanez on Tuesday night. Remember, guys, that was one of the slowest, softest, cheapest, ugliest base hits, by a left-handed hitter who’s been eaten alive by lefties all year. We got our break there, we just need to make another one.

  746. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Ugh, Curtis hit the ball into Camden’s oddly-located outfield sensory deprivation tank but of course Davis wades in and catches it.

  747. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Given what has transpired tonight and this year, its hard to see an outcome with us winning tonight.

  748. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    I don’t like Chris Davis anymore. Lol. I did like him when he beat the Red Sox when he pitched in like the 16th inning back in may haha

  749. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    CC should buzz Weiters tower as payback for Martin

  750. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    A gem? Again I thought it was a routine play… At least fairly routine

  751. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Yipes that pitch was right there

  752. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    “Given what has transpired tonight and this year, its hard to see an outcome with us winning tonight.”

    the odds have to turn at some point….Baltimore can’t keep getting every break like this….at least you’d think not.

  753. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Wow. That was a bit of a gift call but I’ll take it!

  754. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Every called strike to Baltimore is a ball to these fans. I have never seen bigger whiners in my life

  755. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Lets go CC!!!

  756. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    “Wow. That was a bit of a gift call but I’ll take it!”

    he’s called it down there both ways all night….at least it’s consistent.

  757. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Triple, they’ve had fifteen years to practice. :)

  758. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    @Triple…
    Did u happen to watch a Red Sox game this year? That team complained about balls and strikes more than everyone else combined lol

  759. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    I’m talking about the fans not the players

  760. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Martin having a very nice night behind the plate….saved a couple of runs most likely.

  761. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    bad pitch by CC there…

  762. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Why can’t the Yanks hit any balls just off the end of the bat?

  763. theREALkevin October 7th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    “the odds have to turn at some point….Baltimore can’t keep getting every break like this….at least you’d think not.”

    I was saying this back in July. And they’re still getting the breaks. I don’t think logic and odds even apply to the Orioles anymore. If the Yanks want to beat this team, they’re going to have to go out there and score some runs and earn it.

  764. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    This guy scares me

  765. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    @Triple
    Oh ok. The sox fans whine a lot too…especially up here in the middle of the so called Red Sox nation (which is bs)

    Come on Jeter. Gotta make that play.

  770. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    another break for the O’s. How is that an error??????

  771. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

  777. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    :)

  778. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    That wasn’t an error. With?

  779. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    And…exhale. Let’s go Yankees, let’s score!

  780. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Ok – error only cost CC one pitch. No problem.

  781. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Chris Davis used some steroids this year. That popup almost made it out for a homer.

  782. Nilsson October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    CC got away with a hanger to Davis, but it’s still an out.

  783. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    These Os are just the anti- ’02 Moneyball team. This is just stupid lucky.

  784. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Cc’s pitch count pretty good.. Under 80 through 6 I believe

  785. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Oh, that’s an error for sure

  786. theREALkevin October 7th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Phew. He has missed with that slider in the middle of the plate a few times tonight. Luckily it didn’t cost him there.

  787. MG October 7th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    CC got away with a hanging slider to Davis.

    His slider hasn’t been good tonight, that’s why the lefties are hitting him better than the righties…

  788. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    “Left side defense for the Yankees not good this game. Some of the orioles magic is simply the reality of Derek Jeter’s glove.”

    Jeter is a steady hand. Rare that he misplays a ball.

  791. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Really need to score it. Need to silence the crowd and put the pressure back on the o’s.

  792. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    I’m kinda glad my cable went out.
    Watching on mlb.com Gameday is slightly less stressful, I think.

  793. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    how bout we score some runs here?

  794. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Rule #1 for winning in October: Don’t get no-hit by Bronson Arroyo.

  795. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Does Ibanez hit against the lefty I wonder?

  796. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Fuzz, what happened to your cable?

  797. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    I too have been impressed by Martins play behind the dish tonight. Throwing his body in front of everything, a couple days rest and he must be feeling good.

  798. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    The Yanks have had guys on base recently. But not being able to get the big 2 out hit is what has hurt. Basically what we saw all season.

  799. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    “Some of the orioles magic is simply the reality of Derek Jeter’s glove.”

    Lay off the sake

  800. igotid88 October 7th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    okay pinch hit Montero here

  801. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Nick, or anybody for that matter!

  802. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    that’s a tough play believe it or not…….no way to get a good hop on that….

    Tough play but hit right at him. A lot of the defense of his defense is that he makes all the plays hit right at him. 2 of the Orioles seeing eye hits were outs with a regular short stop that has some range.

  803. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Swinging out of his shoes….

  804. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    vc, I think it was my dogs who disconnected something while fighting.
    I’ll probably figure it out between one of these innings…

  805. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Yeah why isn’t Jones on deck? lol

  806. BA October 7th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I would let Ibanez hit against THIS lefty

  807. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    do we bunt here?

  808. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Yeah comes a Jeter bunt

  809. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Why does Ibanez have a bat in his hands?

  810. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Great AB there. Now Raul needs to make a productive out-at worst.

  811. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    I say let Raul be tonight’s hero.

    GO RAUL!!!!!

  812. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Russell Martin = Still valuable on an oh-fer day.

  813. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    people forget the teams we finished against playing.. those guys were ready to go home. Now we are playing good teams and where are our hot hitters ?

    impressed by Tex tonight, I’ll say that.

    Russell Minor-League Martin walks !!! Let’s go Rauuuuuuuuuul-Y

  814. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    I am surprised that Nunez isn’t pinch hitting here. Very weird.

  815. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Based on what everybody is saying about these announcers, you may not want to. :)

  816. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    This is a low odds gamble with Ibanez vs a lhp.

  817. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    “Tough play but hit right at him. A lot of the defense of his defense is that he makes all the plays hit right at him. ”

    hit right at him but not a routine play….couldn’t catch it in the air and it took a high hop with funny spin…..

    “2 of the Orioles seeing eye hits were outs with a regular short stop that has some range.”

    I really don’t think so….maybe a couple make one of those plays but neither were a sure thing.

  818. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Hey I hear the lead off walks come home to bite you all the time.

    Well, let’s see it boys!

  819. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    “2 of the Orioles seeing eye hits were outs with a regular short stop that has some range.”

    lack of range would imply that he couldn’t get to the ball. The ball that you are talking about went under his glove. Seeing eye as opposed to your Sake induced hazy eye

  820. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    A bunt with Ibanez??? Can he bunt? What is Ripken talking about

  821. blake October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    take

  822. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Excellent take there on the 2-1 change up

  823. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Who’s the announcer with the horrible voice?

  824. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    lets go!!!

  825. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Seize and arrest this game right now.

  826. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    awful. what are swinging at?

  827. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Damn that was ball 4

  828. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Ichiro is gonna drive in the winning run for us tonight ! Bet on it ?

  829. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    ball 4

  830. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Great at bat

  831. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Does Jeter bunt?

  832. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Now I bunt with Jeter

  833. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    That 3-1 check swing made me puke. . Which sucks because it was only a temporary setback.

  834. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Jeter bunts em over here – has to.

  835. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    lets go… back to back walks. you know jeter is bunting.

  836. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Come on. HAVE TO get that run in from second with the top of the order up.

  837. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    They say that back-to-back walks, with the first one a lead off, come home to bite you.

    Well come on boys!

    :D

  838. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Jeter bunts.

  839. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    100% lock that Jeter bunts

  840. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    first and second 0 out.. this is our chance.. we got our 2 best hitters coming up!

  841. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Yeah baby. LET’S DO THIS

  842. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Bunt now. That’s what the historical book says. If you want to ignore that, OK.
    But that’s how baseball has been played for over 100 years.

  843. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Now Jeter is definitely bunting here

  844. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    man I thought he was going to ring him up there….good take. I bunt Jeter if they bring a righty in and let Ichiro hit with 2nd and 3rd and 1 out.

  845. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Jeter Will bunt Out of his own

  846. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Thanks for the gift.

  847. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Yeah, absolutely have Jeter bunt and let Ichiro put the ball in play.

  848. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Jeter will probably bunt here, I like the Yankees chances of scoring this inning…

  849. RYUKINGDOM October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    O’Day is a herky jerky ground ball pitchers. Jeter needs to take pitches and not rush his approach. See what the guy has….

  850. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Ideally Jeter bunts and machado let’s one fly down the right field line and we have a 3-2 lead with 2nd and 3rd and no outs.

  851. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    This is their chance. They have to be a better team in this situation than they were most of the season. Come on captain! No double play!

  852. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Alright boys!! here we go. Gotta get a run in here. CC has been pretty lights out. Time to put the pressure on the o’s.

  853. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Ichiro should face a righty after the bunt by Jeter…

  854. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Jeter has to bunt here.. he absolutley has to.. I won’t be able to take a Jeter double play.. especially one of his first pitch gidp’s !!!! please bunt jetes please !

  855. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    lack of range would imply that he couldn’t get to the ball. The ball that you are talking about went under his glove. Seeing eye as opposed to your Sake induced hazy eye

    He did not get to the balls. Seeing eye does not mean ‘goes under the glove’ exclusively, but a hit that goes inbetween 2 defenders at a slow pace.

    Andino’s single was one that a better SS converts to an out. Jeter’s defense is what it is, but it is funny to see people cursing the Orioles good fortunes when some of it is a product of the Yankees defense.

    Like I have said many times, people tend to ignore bad defense unless an error is involved, because thats a stat that is in your face. Pitchers give up hits all the time, so they seem less impactful when they happen.

  856. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Jeter needs to bunt. He has a chance to beat it out and if he doesn’t, they have 2nd and third with Ichiro who makes contact…question is…do u run for Martin or do u trust him to get to third on the bunt…

  857. LGY October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Even I would bunt here

  858. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    gotta bunt here….

  859. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    If Jeter bunts and I’m the O’s I walk Ichiro to get to Arod

  860. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Gotta bunt, right?

  861. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    If Jeter bunts successfully, they walk Ichiro.

  862. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Yanks have to take advantage of this situation. They can’t fail here.

  863. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    get it down Jete…come on!

  864. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    I bet Jeter doesn’t bunt.

    :)

    Not that I don’t think he should! Just the element of surpise maybe!

  865. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Do we like the bunt here?

  866. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Come on Jete!

  867. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Bad announcer voice = Cal Ripken

  868. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Can’t anyone figure out how to bunt? Don’t try for a hit, just get it down!

  869. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    I don’t like the bunt. Then they walk Ichiro and face a rod with a DP chance…

  870. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    very tense moment.

  871. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    can they have a normal relief pitcher who doesn’t throw like he is having a seizure

  872. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    BA – thanks. Wow his voice is HORRID!!!

  873. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Martin is fleet of foot for a catcher.

  874. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Wow you know you can see the ball before you bunt it?

  875. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    What is Jeter doing??!?! What a waste of an at bat.

  876. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Come on Jeter.

  877. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Hit away then. Slap one Jeter.

  878. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    now we cant bunt.. omg.

  879. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Bold Jete, Bold.

  880. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    nice job jeter .. nice job !!!!

  881. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Good job Jete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  882. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Insanely risky bunt by Jeter with 2 strikes, very good he got it down. Good job.

  883. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Wow. Didn’t expect that.

  884. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    great job Jeter….

  885. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Wow that was ballsy.

  886. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Good job, Jeet.

  887. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    They walk ichro… A rod bases loaded…

  888. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Wow

  889. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Well he got the job done. Now Buck will definitely walk Ichiro and make Arod beat them. Everyone sees how bad Arod looks tonight.

  890. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    I don’t like the bunt. Then they walk Ichiro and face a rod with a DP chance…

    *******

    You really think Buck would go for that? Walk the bases loaded against Arod in a tight playoff game?

  891. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    really tough guy to bunt off of……come on Ichi!

  892. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    outside

  893. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    That was intense, great job jete

  894. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    oh come on ump WTF WAS THAT !!

  895. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Jeter obviously went for that second strike. Not sure what he was complaining about. But of course, he comes right back with a nice SAC. They have to get at least one run out of this.

  896. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Not a strike. This is a probably make him swing at crap at bat.

  897. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Up to Ichi

  898. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Hate that call. That’s 1-0

  899. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    “What is Jeter doing??!?! What a waste of an at bat.”

    ????????????????

    nick – I meant to tell you that there will be Yankee just tonight!

  900. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    “okay pinch hit Montero here”

    Yes, I remember 2011 too. Meanwhile…

  901. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    I’ll take bases loaded, one out and ARod at the plate.
    He’s usually good for a fly ball.

  902. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    I guess they don’t walk ichro

  903. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    …or not

  904. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    fly ball here…..or one in the gap….whatever….have to score at least one though.

  905. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    When was the last time CC threw a pitch?

  906. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    No PR for Ibanez?

  907. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Come on Ichiro!

  908. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    that bad call rips off ichiro for his at bat.. total BS ump.. hate them

  909. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    I thought he was going to do that earlier, Come on Ichiro

  910. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    that was ichiro’s pitch….just a little quick.

  911. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Nice job by Jeter still getting it down with 2 strikes. Great confidence

  912. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Again and again with runners in scoring position

  913. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Come on. What is happening

  914. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    :(

  915. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Pathetic

    3 outs on the bases

  916. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    well executed by the O’s .. now it’s up to our 30 million dollar man.

  917. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    MOHTHERAGUGCLK

  918. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    The worst part about this game is I’m watching despite having little to no doubt about the outcome.

  919. Dj October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Ouch.

  920. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    hard hit….of course right at somebody….great play by Wieters….Andino almost threw it away.

  921. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Not a good slide by Martin.

    The luck continues

  922. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    They don’t score here, they don’t win.

  923. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Fail.

    Can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

    This team with RISP bad all year.

  924. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Gotta run the catcher over

  925. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Nice play by Wieters. Come on Alex

  926. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Time for Arod to hero up.

  927. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    This team is brutal. Why do the Yanks always make sac flys look so hard??? Other teams do it so easy. This offense is a joke.

  928. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    LUCKY DOG!!!!!

  929. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Doesn’t it always come down to this…

    Come on #13

  930. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Hit that one hard, too.

  931. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    RISP fail.
    Please turn this around ARod!

  932. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Why am I not surprised by that? And why do I have no confidence in ARod right now?

  933. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Someone dial the clock back a few years please

  934. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Alex has gotten multiple good pitches to drive tonight and just hasn’t done it so far.

  935. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    What is the outcome, Carlo?

  936. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    ANGEL HERNANDEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  937. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    okay it’s the FRIGGIN ORIOLES !!!!!!!!!

  938. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Come on that wasn’t a swing Jesus christ

  939. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Ok – back to playing defense.

  940. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    if they don’t score here….big missed opportunity.

  941. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Alternatively, hook slide around the catcher. don’t just bumble into the glove

  942. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Wow. Too close to take.

  943. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    That’s a couple swings on O’Day balls in the opposite batter’s box.

  944. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Where is Kate Hudson?

  945. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Let’s see a wild pitch

  946. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:09 pm
    Alex has gotten multiple good pitches to drive tonight and just hasn’t done it so far.

    Yes first pitch was a hanger he fouled it off

  947. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    get it to Cano Alex….come on

  948. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Come on a-rod

  949. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Yanks lack of ability to hit risp is consistent.

  950. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Another fail. Ugh. Now I would not be surprised to see the O’s plate a couple of runs in the bottom of this inning.

  951. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    It’s hard to see the Yanks winning this game after that inning. They can’t do any of the little things right to win these games. No 2 out hits, can’t hit meatballs and can’t even hit a sac fly. Terrible inning. But we saw this all season.

  952. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Good God…………….

  953. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Arod needs to be moved out of the number 3 spot

    He is killing them

  954. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Unreal.

  955. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Unbelievable.

  956. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Runners in scoring position the death of this team

  957. PRicanYankees42 October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Speechless…

  958. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    What a surprise. Second and third one out. No runs. Again. So disappointing.

  959. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Man I wish the Rangers won

  960. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Arod is dead to me.

  961. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    My name says it all

  962. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Bat A-Rod 7th from now on. His most potent weapon right now is the walk. He is helpless.

  963. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    How much longer will A-Rod hit third? At least Torre had the guts to make his point.

  964. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Just bad luck for Ichiro. Hard hit ball, right to them. The Orioles get seeing eye single after bloop hit after broken bat hit. And we have the Japaneze hit master who hits a ball hard, but right at them.

  965. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Ugh.
    Can’t let opportunities like that pass by in a playoff game and expect to win.
    But we’re gonna win anyway, right?

  966. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    He is so fing bad.

    So sick of Arod!!!!!!!!!!

    He has been such a bust save for 2009.

    WTH is wrong with this guy?

    Should’ve let Jeter swing away.

  967. yanks 27 October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Joe needs to put in Chavez tomorrow at 3rd

  968. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    I’m not surprised.
    They’ve been this all season long, why do u expect anything else in postseason?

  969. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Man….hate to say it but they may have to get Alex down the lineup a bit. Maybe get Swisher in the 3 hole for a Swisher, Cano, Tex middle with Alex hitting 6th.

  970. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    This is a huge half inning coming up. Really have to keep the O’s off the board, but unfortunately it is the bottom of the lineup coming up. Hold on tight.

  971. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Its 0-1 and a bunch of “yanks turn to andy articles tomorrow”

    They win every 1 run game.

    We’ve run ourselves out of inngs all day

    Failed to execute in the big spots

    And they’ve made a slew of “sht, the ball is in my glove, I caught that” plays

  972. qiantom October 7th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Yanks should have stayed out of the playoff. Their inability to get runners in from scoring position is just embarassing.

  973. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    My heart’s actually at peace with this. They’ve done this all season.
    Can’t expect a sea change just because it’s the playoffs. However,
    the one thing that does change in the playoffs is that you don’t hit
    4 homeruns in one inning because of the better pitching.

  974. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    This game is really frustrating to watch. The offense is the same every single post season. Arod really looks dreadful. Watch now the O’s will score in the bottom of the inning. It always happens that way. How many chances do the Yanks actually think they are going to get to score? Just brutal.

  975. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Raul would have crashed into Wieters…

  976. YankeesFanMan October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    This is why you don’t sacrifice with one of your best hitters. Better chance he singles in a run.

  977. sunny615 October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Yecch. Stupid Arod.

  978. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Shut Em down here. Can’t allow any runs with this bullpen back end.

  979. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    2nd and 3rd with no outs and don’t score……seen stuff like that way too much this year….

  980. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    I’m serious. Not hating A-Rod, but he isn’t hitting well enough to be so high in the lineup. Only his name keeps him there.

  981. RYUKINGDOM October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    ARod batting 3rd….WT….

  982. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Chavez is a better hitter than Arod right now.

  983. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Difference is Swisher or Grandy in the two hole would have K’d.

  984. b_widmer2 October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Ho hum. It’s just May right? They’ll turn it around in the playoffs right? Right? RIGHT?

  985. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Just bad luck for Ichiro. Hard hit ball, right to them. The Orioles get seeing eye single after bloop hit after broken bat hit. And we have the Japaneze hit master who hits a ball hard, but right at them.

    This.

    Hi There!

    We’re the 2012 New York Yankees, the only team on Earth who would have our leadoff hitter who led the majors in hits for the year with 216 and has 3303 career hits bunt the runners over to second and third after we draw two walks to lead off the inning.

    Good job Clueless Joe Jr!

    The worst team by BA and OBP since 1992 and it’s showing tonight.

    The Yanks deserve to lose this game and if they do, they’re probably losing the series.

    If they lose this series, back up the truck starting with A-Rod, Teixiera, Swisher, Granderson, Ibanez, and Suzuki. Gardner, too, if they could get something good with him.

    Disgusting, gutless, stupid showing by the Yankees offense tonight. Try offensIVE.

  987. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    That was pretty bad. But this is the postseason. We’ve watched other teams get out of bases-loaded, no outs situations, a few times already.

    Look I thought this was going to be a cakewalk and we were going to sweep.

    I still think we’ll sweep.

    Here’s the one thing that bugs me the most. The O’s have the 5th best RP ERA in the majors.

  988. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    UN FUC**NG REAL. This ain’t the regular season. Yankees should have scored there

  989. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Only team in baseball with 2 lead off walks and can’t get a single damn run !!!!!

  990. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    No HR tonight….I say the Yanks lose. They are a flawed team. Can’t come thru with RISP. All season long…I’m surprised they made it this far.

  991. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    You cant hide Alex down in the line-up. If Alex doesn’t produce the Yankees will go home. IMO.

    Come on CC this is your game.

  992. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Yet we’ve gotten to Strop.

  993. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Lew Ford needs to make an out.

  994. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    now both teams have left a runner on 3rd with less than 2 outs, why does that mean the Yankees will lose the game?

    Wieters made a great play on that throw by Andino or Martin would have scored, he really busted it down the line…

  995. Duh Innings II October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    I didn’t know Verlander was on the mound right now.

    Girardi playing for a run in the away park, as if one run is enough.

    Idiot.

  996. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    I wonder if Girardi thought about pinch running for Martin last inning. I thought about it when he got on but I guess you don’t want to take your catcher out. Anyone with decent speed scores on that ball to Andino since it was a bad throw.

  997. Pat M. October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Listening to Jerkface critique baseball players is like someone who doesn’t drive calling Danica Patrick a lousy race car driver……..Standup comic you are Face

  998. NYY fan in NH October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Offense has turned back into the same bad old habits with RISP and timely hits. Ran themselves out of possible big innings. Arod not looking good tonight.

  999. Nick in SF October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    We’d be ahead now if Ichiro had wielded the [metaphor deleted] instead of the [second metaphor deleted]. :cry:

  1000. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Batting averages this inning:

    .183
    .211
    .241

    Be afraid.

  1001. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Here’s the one thing that bugs me the most. The O’s have the 5th best RP ERA in the majors.

    Well if their crap starters are entitled to good performances in the postseason maybe their stellar relief is entitled to blow the game.

  1002. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Come on CC!! You can’t walk this scrub.

  1003. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    If CC can’t over power Lew Ford, why is he pitching? He’s nibbling with this guy???

  1004. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    If Lew Ford gets a lead off walk. This game is getting turned off.

  1005. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Even my dog just left the room. I don’t think he wants to watch this inning either.

  1006. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Oh Robby!!!

    :D

  1007. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    The 2-3 format sucks. The O’s are getting a big lift out of their crowd tonight they shouldn’t be getting. No advantage for winning the division. Selig sucks.

  1008. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    usually when a pitcher has to wait between innings as much as CC has tonight his offense has scored some runs.

  1009. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Keep grinding.

  1010. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    O’s hitting so many weird hits right now.

  1011. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Jesus H. Lew effin ford almost got on with a 35 foot infield grounder Christ.

  1012. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    2nd and 3rd with no outs and don’t score……seen stuff like that way too much this year….

    1 out because of the bunt. They only had 1 shot at the free run.

  1013. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Um, yeah, the way CC is pitching, I’d take my chances with a 3-2 lead. One run may be plenty.

  1014. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    The 2-3 format Is an abhorration this year only.

  1015. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    “Well if their crap starters are entitled to good performances in the postseason maybe their stellar relief is entitled to blow the game.”

    True that!

    I already mentioned the Yanks have gotten to Strop.

    Arod needs to be moved out of the number 3 spot

    He is killing them
    +++++

    Arod needs to pack his bags and get the F out of NY. He’s a head case with no confidence. All he ever was he did on PEDs.. without them this is the guy we got. I only used PED’s in Texas.. how many do you think believed that Alex ?

  1018. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Come on CC!!

  1019. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    CC is on his game, though, so I still have confidence.

  1020. umbrelladoc October 7th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    The bunt isnt a play for 1 run with runners on 1st and 2nd. You get Ichiro with the infield in, 2 RISP.

  1021. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I wonder if CC is getting tired

  1022. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I love the Jerkface vs. Pat M confrontation… Its one of the sidebars of this forum I most enjoy….

  1024. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Perfect pitch by CC there…

  1025. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Andino has anger issues..

  1026. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    “1 out because of the bunt. They only had 1 shot at the free run.”

    I still liked it with Ichiro up there….he hit it hard….Orioles luck prevailed.

  1027. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    HARDEE HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!

    That was so obvious a strike it wasn’t funny.

  1028. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    What the hell is andino yelling about. It was a good pitch.

  1029. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Another nice pitch.

  1030. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    That was perfect. sit down

  1031. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    I had a dream that the Dodgers got Tex, Arod, Granderson and Martin and we were free to rebuild the team without being handcuffed by these dead wood HR or bust hitters.

    I miss Godzilla.
    I miss Damon
    I miss Posada
    I miss Giambi – to think we only paid Tex for his glove, might as well kept Giambi he was clutch and likable at least.
    Hell I even miss Gary Sheffield.

    CC getting squeezed now

  1035. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    Molina gets that last call

  1036. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

  1037. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    The orioles are also fortunate that Al can’t get himself a good urine sample guy thereby allowing them to pitch to the neutered version of Al.

  1038. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Yeah I’m not sure a rod can stay in 3 hole.. Not sure how u move things around… But he doesn’t deserve to stay there

  1040. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    The Yankees offense must think Kuroda is pitching.

  1041. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    CC has done his job. Hopefully Can wakes up!

  1042. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    In that situation it would have been better if Ichiro hit one of his patented swinging bunts.

    Thanks. maybe we can sign another nobody that holds the team hostage due to a ridiculous salary and lack of production. Then again, you think 2 HR’s and a .250 BA is because of all the super pitching we face. get real.

  1049. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    CC has come up big tonight. Our hitters have to back him up.

  1050. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    That is big. It really was important to keep them from scoring there. Nice job, CC.

  1051. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    CC is an ace

    This offense is a joke.

  1052. austinmac October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Cano and the two guys who have looked good at the plate. Now, is the time to score.

  1053. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    CC for 1 more inning?

  1054. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    “In that situation it would have been better if Ichiro hit one of his patented swinging bunts.”

    yea….he hit it too hard….and too right at Andino….

  1056. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Now if the Orioles will just make the mistake of throwing a strike to Cano…

  1057. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    CC is indeed an Ace+, especially tonight. I just don’t feel as down on the offense as normal. They have looked much better. Just a lot of bad luck….catch in the RF corner, Ichiro thrown out, Martin out at home on a rocket, Teix out at second on a rocket. Teix robbed at first on a rocket. I mean, what bad luck!

    What a !@#$ing joke that the team with the best record in the AL has to play the first two games of the ALDS on the road against a team who wasn’t good enough to win the division let alone have homefield advantage for the wildcard game.

    I propose a new rule for postseason seeding:

    The #1 seed plays all ALDS games at home save Game 3.

    That gives everyone even more incentive not to win the wildcard.

  1064. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    Giambi was such a mockery. He had about 5 minutes of fame……his two solo home runs off pedro in the 03 alcs game 7.

    Other than that and some power seasons, he rocked parasites and played defense like a man with two left arms.

  1065. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Cano not taking over the game in a brandon phillips esque fashion :x

    We have reached the time (11:30) when the Yankees need to win or the lack of sleep and the loss will make for me being one irritable Yankee fan at work tomorrow. We need a HR. That is the only way we win.

  1071. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    I think the 3 days off killed Cano’s swing and approach. I figured he wouldn’t stay hot with the days off.

  1072. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    You have to wonder if our SP’s feel the effect of our dead bats having to take the mound every night knowing if they don’t pitch a shutout we are in trouble. Good luck convincing Andy to come back next year if they don’t change this team.

  1109. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Grandy is just totally in his own head. The strike out problems from last season have really snowballed.

  1110. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Well it’s not a Yankee game till grandeson strikes out

  1111. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    unreal…..strike strike….ball….swings out of k zone

  1112. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Never met a fan as pathetic as Trisha

  1113. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    That was like the worst AB ever. Mr Strikeout Granderson takes the first 2 pitches right down the pipe. Then proceeds to swing under a pitch that was above his head. He went up to the plate with no plan.

    And postseason Cano is back. He’s hacking at every pitch. He’s not doing what made him successful in the final couple weeks of the season. He’s not zoning pitches and looking for pitches to drive. He’s just swigning at everything.

  1114. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    What a dreadful at bat from Granderson. Swisher and Tex did their jobs getting on base but the strike out king has hurt them. This looks like another play off series where the guys can’t get any big hits. You know the usual.

  1115. G. Love October 7th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    I think we’d have a better chance of scoring if our runners on base covered their eyes like little kids and pretended they were hiding and the batter at the plate couldn’t see them.

  1116. lil m October 7th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Yankee offense coming up small so far . . . pitching has to continue to hold on please . . .

  1117. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Pathetic, why dont you shut your trap and scurry back to your Red Sox nation.

  1118. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    F*ck THIS TEAM. So incredibly frustrating. You’d think maybe since it’s the playoffs they’d come out and get some clutch hits and instead it’s been a huge embarrassment. What a joke. I’m ready for a Game 1 loss.

  1119. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    There’s a Curtis Granderson-sized hole in the lineup tonight.
    Oh, and one about the size of Robinson Cano too.

  1120. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    5 hits tonight.

  1121. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    The only thing that bothers me even more than this offense is the fact that I know cashman is going to try to sell it to us again next year. This piece of crap useless unable to hit old snore fest offense.

  1122. rr212 October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    The Grandyman Kan. Oh, the KKKKKKKKkKKandyman Kan.

  1123. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Score here and close Yankees out.

  1124. RYUKINGDOM October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Nunez should have been DH. He’s a spark plug. Joe always plays the yesterday scenerio. No imagination. Need speed. Even if it took replacing Martin with a fast runner like Gardner when he was on 3rd.

  1125. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    who are these new people on the forums tonight?

  1126. b_widmer2 October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Here comes the walk-off.

  1127. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    have DRob ready

  1128. lil m October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Come on Yanks, you can do it.

  1129. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Whether it’s today or tomorrow, all the Yanks need to do is take one. I’d prefer this one…

  1130. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Thats game

  1131. qiantom October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Game over.

  1132. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Part of me wants this team to be done in the first round. That’s the only thing that will call for some rebuilding. They are tough to watch. Now the Orioles will manufacture a run and bring in Jim Johnson. This game is over.

  1133. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Game over.

  1134. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    “The only thing that bothers me even more than this offense is the fact that I know cashman is going to try to sell it to us again next year”

    of course….Hal won’t let him do anything else.

  1135. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Here we go.

  1136. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Hanging slider?

  1137. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    b_widmer2 October 7th, 2012 at 11:37 pm
    Here comes the walk-off.
    —-

    Do they only play 8 innings now?

  1138. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    This 2-3 format is really not that bad at all. If you steal one of the first two on the road, you have a chance to finish things off with THREE straight games at home. Even if you play horrible and are down 0-2, you still get to go back home and get it done. I personally think the A’s will win the next three. That being said, we HAVE to take one of these games in baltimore.

  1139. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Not drob. He will blow the game without a doubt.

    Martin
    Ibanez
    Jeter

    And we’ll need 1 against johnson.

  1140. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    hardy…har har

  1141. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    This is beyond luck…

  1142. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Well this will probably be the game here. Can’t expect CC to hold them down for another 10 innings. The offense blew this game.

  1143. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    And here, we, go.

    CC has pitched too well tonight to get a loss, but I wouldn’t want anyone else out there right now.

  1144. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    you knew this was going to happen eventually….you keep failing to score inning after inning and the other team is going to at some point.

    Come on CC bare down

  1145. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Wow, another lucky hit there.

  1146. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Now let’s see if CC is still our Ace…

  1147. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Hoooooly cow/

  1148. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Getting a little worried about CC…

  1149. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Yeah, just like I thought

  1150. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    It’s time to bring in Robertson. CC did his job. But Girardi is old school and is going to let CC blow the game like he always does.

  1151. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Wow, another lucky hit there.

    One of those lucky well struck line drives, eh?

  1152. Pathetic October 7th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Game. Set. Match.

  1153. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Well this will probably be the game here. Can’t expect CC to hold them down for another 10 innings. The offense blew this game.

    —————————-

    Funny. Some on here would say only pitching can blow a game

  1154. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    How many games did the Yankees score less than three runs this year? This one is on our offense if we lose.

  1155. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Houdini is warming up.

  1156. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Hey cc can pitch his away around a lead off double

  1157. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    good 2-1 CU there

  1158. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Huge K.

  1159. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    huge

  1160. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    that was sensational pitching by CC…

  1161. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    HUGE

  1162. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    This game to me falls on one person. The person who it always comes down to. The guy who’s in the middle of the order. The guy who’s paid to get it done. We all know who it is, and I can’t even watch him try to swing anymore. Horrible.

  1163. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    cmon CC. You can DO this!!

  1164. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Big big big out

  1165. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    that 2-1 CU saved the AB…hitters count and he got him to 2 strikes then made a pitch 2-2

  1166. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Huge. 1 more

  1167. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Another big big out

  1168. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Nice!

  1169. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    :D

  1170. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Maybe people haven’t noticed, but “houdini” hasn’t been able to get out of a paper bag recently. Sabathia is the guy to get out of this.

  1171. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    One more!R

  1172. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    That’s 2. One more CC!!

  1173. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Another great pitch right in Weiter’s kitchen

  1174. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Come on CC!! 1 more big out.

  1175. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    if he gets out of this we have to score next inning…..have to

  1176. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    CC in Beast form

  1177. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    CC so close to getting out of this. This is already one of his best if not the best start of his postseason career. Get the out.

  1178. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Walk Reynolds. He has killed us this year.

  1179. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    uno mas!

  1180. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    pitch careful to Reynolds here….make him chase…base open

  1181. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    CC pitching is heart out..

  1182. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Why is he pitching to him? This is not smart. It may work, but not smart.

  1183. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Come on CC, be that Ace!!!

  1184. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Reynolds with 2 strikes hits below .200 in all counts, gotta get 2 strikes on him.

  1185. Triple Short of a Cycle October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    where was that pitch????

  1186. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    same pitch he called Swisher out on right there.

  1187. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Revenge, cc

  1188. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    that was strike 3

  1189. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    This guys always scares me now. He seems like a nobody with a lot of luck.

  1190. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    One more CC

  1191. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    One tense ball game

  1192. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    I definitely thought that Girardi was going to pitch around Reynolds. Hopefully CC can get him.

  1193. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Yeah baby yeah!!!!!!!

  1194. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Ace.

  1195. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Ace.

  1196. Marcus October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Nice pitching!

  1197. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Nice job by CC after that heart attack pitch to Jones.

  1198. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    I guess there won’t be an “eight-inning” walk off

  1199. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Cc!

  1200. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Ace ace ace ace ace ace

  1201. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Great job by CC. Now can the Yanks actually score a run?!?!!

  1202. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    CC= stud….he deserves to win this game guys….come on!

  1203. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    HARDEE HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!

    Hey kids, you can peek now!

    :lol:

  1204. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Ladies and gentlemen…that is an ace.

    I smell a HR coming.

  1205. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    What a great outing by the big man.

  1206. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    C!!!!

  1207. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    what a job by CC, he just mowed down the middle of the O’s order without a ball out of the infield…

  1208. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    CC SOOO deserves a win here!

  1209. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    CC pitching like the ACCE

  1210. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Way to pitch CC…our ACE is alive and well.

  1211. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Please CC

    YES

    Great night for the big man.

  1212. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Wow. CC has been nothing short of amazing. What more could you ask for. IF it is still tied after we bat…. I think you let him go in for the ninth.

  1213. RYUKINGDOM October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    I take my “soft” Saba back….It was a great pitching performance no matter what….

  1214. GoldGlove9486 October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    How about it, Raul?

  1215. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Ace!

  1216. Nilsson October 7th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Very timely of CC to hurl his best gem of the year.

  1217. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    CC is smothering these guys. What a performance.

  1218. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Carsten Freaking Charles. WOW!!!!!!

  1219. Boss Tony N October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

  1220. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Come on martin……do something brilliant here please.

  1221. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    I feel good about this.

  1222. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Another way to look at the game is this. The O’s have also had more than ample opportunity to put this game away and they haven’t done it. Maybe it’s meant to be the Yanks win.

    Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    :)

  1223. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    CC has really played the ace role great time. Time for the offense to play their role and score.

  1224. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    You guys really didn’t consider cc and ace before this game???

  1225. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Munson would deliver a big hit here.

  1226. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Come on OFFENSE…win this for CC!!!

  1227. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

  1228. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    One of the best starts of CC’s postseason career. He had some good ones vs LAA that may be arguably better.

  1229. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Come on yankees. You gotta do this. It’s what the orioles need. To lose a game where so much went their way!

  1230. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    CC’s CU was outstanding tonight…..his slider was a bit inconsistent but he commanded the fastball great and made some really big behind the count pitches with his CU. Great start….he deserves to win so lets oblige him

  1231. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Meet Al in the land of whiffs and walks.

  1232. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Carlo: I agree…#15 was clutch

  1233. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    It wouldn’t be a true Yankee game without us hitting a homer. Lets get one this inning!!

  1234. luis October 7th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Hello again,

    Tar and YF….We lost again

    Back to baseball…I haven’t watched the whole game…But one play I did see that I think they should have done something about it…When Martin got on base, they left Ibanez gainst the lefty…I would have either pinch hit with Nunez or bunt Martin over… if they bring a righty, I would send Chavez in there

  1235. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Lets go. Bring two or more home!!

  1236. Pat M. October 7th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Sabathia displays some brass balls pitching that inning…..And the O”s hitters he faced aren’t anymore pathetic than the Yanks hitters……It’s tough pitching folks, in fact that’s great pitching from both teams……

  1237. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

  1267. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    Sori comes up!

  1268. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    “Sabathia displays some brass balls pitching that inning…”

    big ones

  1269. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    Smoltz is about to cry

  1270. UnKnown October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    LONG BALL BABY!!

    That is what this team is all about. BOOM!!!!!!!!

  1271. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Carlo: Maybe the captain was channeling thru Martin!!!! YES!@!

  1272. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Here comes Gardner to pinch run?

  1273. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Russel has been scorching hot since september.

  1274. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    That was so weird. I just thought to myself good get Mo up. This will be the 1st Soriano test.

  1275. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Luis, so sorry to hear it. :(

  1276. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Raul! So cool!…and so glad Reynolds didn’t stop that one too

  1277. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Russell Martin = Offensive positive, even after a rough start

  1278. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    The magic has faded just a few minutes before midnight.

  1279. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    I tell ya….Martin has had a ball game tonight….the homer and he’s been fantastic defensively….he’s save a couple of runs behind the plate too.

  1280. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    I hate to be such a knee jerk fan… but my god has martin showed he deserves to be resigned. This guy was a absolute joke all season…. but he turned it around and was HUGE down the stretch and in the playoffs so far. My goodness.

  1281. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    “Who smelled a HR!!!???”

    Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:38 pm
    Game over.

    Not you pal.

  1282. jmv October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Hey, luis

    Simply can’t believe what happened today. Devastating defeat.

    I hope for a Yankees win, at least

  1283. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Keep the line moving! Score more!

  1284. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Swing awayyyy!!!!!!

  1285. igotid88 October 7th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Lucky for us the only hits Russell gets are homeruns

  1286. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    No pinch runner for Ibanez?

  1287. BA October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Swing away Jete

  1288. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Hey Russell. I take back all fo the crappy things I said about you this year. You have had some big hits this past month. None bigger than that one.

    That being said, I would like to add at least one more run to feel good about this.

  1289. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Why in the hell is Jeter bunting.

  1290. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    umbrelladoc,
    I was thinking the same thing about Johnson.
    Texas was just a couple centimeters on Murphy’s bat from tying up that 5-1 wild card game.

  1291. Boston Jim October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    ya jeets

  1292. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    nice…

  1293. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Jeterian hit.

  1294. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Nice!

  1295. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    What a baseball player. El Capitan!

  1296. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Let’s get at least one more.

  1297. mate October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    You really have to be a pathetic no life loser to go on another teams blog and spew crap and troll on a Sunday night at almost midnight.

    Huge CC tonight! And as I type this. How do you like Martin!!

    Bet that took the air out of you trolls.

    Untuck comming up!! But lets add some more!!

  1298. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Keep the line moving!

  1299. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    little H and R bat control….that’s why he’s the man

  1300. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Beautiful. Need insurance. Don’t want soriano in the fire for the first time with no margin for error.

  1301. NYY_Girl_Penny October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    woah.. Martin… ??

    Ima have to go walk the dog more often!!

  1302. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Here we go. Here we go here we go. This is the luck we’ve been missing :)

  1303. lil m October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Yankees offense undergoing a sudden growth spurt! :)

  1304. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Go Jeter. It would be big to get another run here. Why not bring in Gardner to pinch run for Ibanez? He is going to come in for defense anyway in the 9th inning. I don’t get it.

  1305. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    YES YES YES!!!!!

  1306. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    The Lohud Trisha Blog.

    Is there any room for pessimism here?

    I didn’t read in the Terms that only rose colored glasses are allowed.

  1307. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Need this insurance run

  1308. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Still no pinch runner? Not even on the chance for a sac fly or FO RBI?

  1309. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Too bad I live with a bunch of Red Sox fans.

  1310. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Luis

    I’m really sorry. Again it puts this game in perspective. I feel for you guys.

  1311. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    I’m crying. So scared for bottom of 9th

  1312. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    I wouldn’t want anyone else up in this situation. Ichiro is almost a lock to put it in play.

  1313. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    jmv, so sorry about the election.

  1314. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Need that run… Really need that run

  1315. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Why is Girardi wasting a player? Where is Gardner?

  1316. Jerkface October 7th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    oh goodie a pinch runner.

  1317. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Do you bring back CC or do you go with Sori? I really think you let CC go back out man.

  1318. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Sac fly?
    Run scoring double play?
    Let’s bump up this lead and help Johnson’s arm fall off after a fantastic season.

  1319. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Big ball and small ball.

  1320. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    It’s an Oriole-like hit!

  1321. vc 11 October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    I LOVE YOU, ICHIRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  1322. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Taste you own medicine, O’s.

  1323. jacksquat October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    And there is the swinging bunt! :)

  1324. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Lady luck smiles at us for a change!

  1325. G. Love October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    The Go-Go Yanks!

  1326. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    see that’s what Ichi should have done the other time!

  1327. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

  1328. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    The orioles have us some of their luck!

  1329. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    !!!

  1330. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Talk about a correction.

  1331. Tarheel In NYC October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Yankee Stadium magic—at Camden Yards. I love it!

  1332. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    YES YES YES YES YES YES !!!!!!

    WIN THIS BABY

  1333. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Nice job by Ichiro to put the ball in play. The Yanks can’t let up here…keep scoring.

  1334. luis October 7th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    I hope for a Yankees win, at least

    =========================

    God will not deny us at least a Yankee win.

    Excellent at bat by Jeter there…Classic!

    Ichiro!!! heads up!!!

  1335. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 9:05 pm
    My prediction is that Russ is series MVP

    LOVE IT. LOVE HIM. BRING HIM BACK

  1336. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Well played Ichiro.
    Well played.

  1337. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Maybe we get two more and CC comes out for the ninth

    I know that’s right!

  1339. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Can we ask Arod to bunt?

  1340. Carlo October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Have to bunt Al here. He’s too tapioca not to.

  1341. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    Wow…this is devasting for Johnson…..

  1342. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Arod has gotten so many pitches to hit tonight.

  1343. Ken Phelps October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    He misses a lot of hittable pitches

  1344. Tar October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    JMV

    I’m also sorry. :sad:

  1345. MG October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Baseball is a funny game.

    the O’s have been getting cheap hits all night.

    The Yankees have hit some balls really hard and had almost nothing to show for it.

    Martin hits the HR and all of a sudden things completely change.

    Ibanez rips a ball under Reynolds’ glove.

    Jeter fists a ball on the hit and run for a hit

    Ichiro tops one and gets a hit

    You have the feeling the O’s are going to get a little deflated after this inning…

  1346. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Sigh.

  1347. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    It’s weird to see Arod late on every single fastball. That ball was right over the plate. He really is a shell of himself right now.

  1348. The Other Phil October 7th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    At least it wasn’t a DP… :(

  1349. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Alex needs to be lowered in the order like asap.

  1350. igotid88 October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    they always step it up against A-Rod

  1351. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Not the worst result there. Give Robbie a chance without the double play happening from Arod. Lets go robbie. Lets get another run baby.

  1352. EliasInNH October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Big letdown ARod

  1353. G. Love October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    It’s Cano time.

  1354. Brappy55 October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    ARod sucks. That’s it. No need to overexaggerate

  1355. JorgesArm October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    A-Rod…no contributions at all….so sad.

  1356. Bobby Murcer October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Poor Arod…

  1357. Bret The Hitman October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Chavez tomorrow please.

  1358. Brock October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Put it away Robbie.

  1359. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Cano is going to jack one here.

  1360. Pat M. October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    blake…..Martin has had a huge game tonight and what doesn’t show up in Face’s flow cahrts with the pretty colors is how many strikes he sold tonight….The dinger of corse is icing……..He’s in for a nice contract in about 2 months……

  1361. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    There goes the best #3 hitter in a New York uniform today.

  1362. lil m October 7th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    Okay Robinson, don’t get yourself out, you can do it!!!!

  1363. Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Arod just looks awful.

    At least move the runners over.

    Nothing productive from this guy tonight.

    Tomorrow night is a new game though.

    How’s that, Trisha?

  1364. jmv October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Thanks, YF. I’m truly down.

    I’d take a win from the Yankees to swallow it, at least for tonight

  1365. Chambliss October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    I would like to see CC finish this game. Send him back out there and let him stay in until someone reaches base.

  1366. Captain Clutch October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    They haven’t shown Soriano warming up. I really hope that Girardi isn’t bringing CC back out for the 9th inning.

  1367. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    “Is there any room for pessimism here?”

    Bring in the Goose October 7th, 2012 at 11:35 pm
    We are losing this game tonight.

    They will score off our own before we plate one off Hunter or Johnson.

    We should have at least a 3-2 lead right now.

    ************

    There’s a difference between pessimism and stupdity.

  1368. cofuzz October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Pressure reduced, so don’t swing at everything Robby.

  1369. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    No sabes?!

  1370. igotid88 October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Ca-YES

  1371. TheStraw October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Ca-yes!

  1372. blake October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Alex really needs to figure out a way to get started earlier….as a hitter you want to wait as long as possible to be able to read and cover breaking pitches….but if you’re not getting to fastballs that doesn’t matter…..you have to start early enough to get to fastballs and he’s got to make that adjustment.

    There’s Cano!

  1373. RadioKev October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Cano uses his powers for good.

  1374. Yankees_Fan October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Can welcome back!

  1375. yankeefeminista October 7th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

  1381. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I had the feeling Robby would take one of those sinkers the other way and he did…

  1387. Yankees_Fan October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Cano welcome back!

  1388. Bret The Hitman October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!

    THAAAAAAA YANKEEES WIN

  1389. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Nice hitting by Cano!!! I would definitely bring Soriano out for the 9th inning. I think you want to get his feet wet immediately in a Yankee play off game,

  1390. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Maybe this IS going to end up being a cakewalk!

    POST OF THE YEAR !!!

    “He comes to bury Jeter, not to praise him. ” ( along with his separated at birth accomplice )

    A first ballot HOF’er that has accomplished all any ballplayer could possibly hope for.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen another SS that goes as well into the OF & foul ground or charges the slow hopper right at you and make both plays any better.

  1392. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Who doesn’t like that 2-3 format new? It seems unfair at first… but if you win one of the first two, all of sudden it seems like a perfect format. THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT BOYS. CLUTCH CLUTCH CLUTCH CLUTCH.

  1393. JorgesArm October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Typical Yankees late inning post season magic.

  1394. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I just want to thank Arod for K’ing and allowing that to happen.

  1395. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    CANO!!!! NO PROBLEMA!!! SABES??!?!?!??!?!!

  1396. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Send CC back out for the ninth.

  1397. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    CA-YES!

  1398. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 am

    “blake…..Martin has had a huge game tonight and what doesn’t show up in Face’s flow cahrts with the pretty colors is how many strikes he sold tonight…”

    I’ve been hard on him too at times….but he had some night all the way around….

    Giradi is getting a gift here – now if we win this thing either sit ARod or move him to 8th…..

  1402. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    jmv,I feel for you.

  1403. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    I want to see Derek Lowe pitching the 9th.

  1404. lil m October 8th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Wow!!! Saving the best for last!!! Yanks flipping the script here – coming through in the 9th, bullpen-proofing the lead – they’re not taking any chances!!!

  1405. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Now that was good hitting period..

    this team is just a one inning team.. it’s crazy that it’s been working for them all year. They do nothing 7 or 8 innings a game and then score a bunch of runs.. amazing they get shutdown by Hammel below average pitcher turned ACE and then Johnson who’d you expect to shut them down implodes. Can’t figure it out.

  1406. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    All it took was a homerun to get the homerun boys to score some runs.

  1407. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Still gotta nail it down, but this feels right.

  1408. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Don’t be so hard on arod… he had the best AB of the night!!!! He didn’t ground into a double play or move the runners over. Thus the O’s could not walk ROBBIE and we got 2 runs. Game MVP goes to arod for the clutch strikeout.

  1409. Chambliss October 8th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Once again, a closer in a non closing situation pitches poorly. Even Mo seemed like a different guy in non save situations. Great inning. Keep piling on.

  1410. igotid88 October 8th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    If the other Yankees hit it won’t matter what Alex does. But if they don’t then he gets all the blame

  1411. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Still crying.

  1412. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Hunter? I barely know her!

  1413. Ken Phelps October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Wow.. With all these empty seats… Camden yards looks like… Camden yards

  1414. RYUKINGDOM October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Good ole Ichiro can’t make things happen. Too bad he made a foolish play stealing third with no outs…

  1415. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Blake – that’s on girardi, he has to tell alex to lay one down. He copped out there by letting him swing. The guy can’t get the bat head around at all. He is helpless up there.

  1416. Duh Innings II October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    This game is Exhibit A why I want CC to start Games 1, 4, and 7 of the ALCS or World Series.

    Yankees:

    Get rid of A-Rod and/or Teixiera then lock up Cano with the money saved.

  1417. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    I’d let CC start it, to see what happens, but super short leash.

  1418. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    “Wow… Jim Johnson exposed”

    2.11 ERA, 1.07 WHIP

    I guess he was doomed to have it happen sooner or later.

  1419. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    One of the biggest positives is seeing Swisher and Tex have good at bats.

  1420. Pat M. October 8th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Tricia……..I know you’re smiling, a well deserved smile at that……..OPPC 2009 revisited

  1421. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    This team needed to wake up, this game is huge. We have to win at least one here.

  1422. Ken Phelps October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Also Yankees are 3-0 in post season games at Camden yards coming Into this game

  1423. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    I would move Arod down in the order tomorrow, he hasn’t shown any sign of being able to handle a fastball.

  1424. luis October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Tar,

    I know…For what is worth, you can’t imagine how much it meant to me, your kind words earlier…I mean this from my heart…You can count on me for whatever you need..

    YF,

    Thanks my friend…It is very hard, right now I don’t see a way out of the mess the country is going to get in to…It is very hard when a big chunk of the population doesn’t see it that way…Ignorance is in deed the worst enemy of democracy…Enough of politics, sorry all.

    We broke the game open!! Nice!! What’s the pitch count on C? If it is low, I let him finish what he started

  1425. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    tonight was the difference in the starters….Hammel was ok but he was out early and the old rule of relievers eventually applied….if you use enough of them the there is a good chance one of them will have a bad night and tonight Johnson did…..of course the Yanks have really performed with the bats this inning as well.

  1426. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    that’ll do it Swish…..Swish and Martin having great nights….who’d a thunk it

  1427. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Swish city getting the run home!!! Yowsa!! Terrific game for Swishster!!

  1428. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Boss Tony – :lol:

  1429. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Arod had a bad game, we made bad base running mistakes… but who cares? if we can win, thats all that matters. Guys stepped up!!! thats all that matters and every Yankee fan should be happy. That is what is so special about this lineup…. a superstar can go 0-5 and someone else will step up. LETS GET THIS WIN BABY

  1430. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    luis and jmv, very sorry to hear your news. It’s a fascinating topic, but this isn’t the place.

  1431. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Soriano best be seated.

  1432. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    This inning may have just shown us that #28 is en route. Had we not scored I would have thought that it was a regular season game. Something different happened

  1433. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Series-Momentum changing inning.

  1434. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Sorry luis and jmv. I just hope it was a clean election and the result really reflects the will of the people.

  1435. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Swisher kicked the extra point.

  1436. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    We’re aboard the Yankees train in the land of hopes and dreams!!!!!!!

  1437. Chambliss October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Atta boy Swish. fair weather fans heading for the exits

  1438. Brock October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    I am now feeling pretty comfortable with the five-run lead. I like it.

  1439. mate October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    And that’s how you put those Buck’os in their place. Has to be tough to recover from that.

    Sweep!

  1440. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    I wouldn’t waste anymore of CC’s bullets in the 9th inning. He has struggled the last couple of years in the play offs because he was out of gas. With a 5 run lead let someone else get some work.

  1441. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Ibanez kept it going after Russell’s bomb, this guy is going to come through huge for us in these playoffs.

  1442. Bret The Hitman October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    I think CC’s staying in. He had a long layoff and he probably wants to nail down his postseason repretoire

  1443. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    @Brappy
    We got some luck and some good execution.

  1444. JorgesArm October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Great comeback..but this game is not over yet…need 3 more outs..

  1445. Ken Phelps October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Do we really need cialis commercials???

  1446. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    he already warmed up Robertson last inning, may as well us him for the 9th-CC is about 110 pitches and the 8th was a stressful one.

  1447. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    “I would move Arod down in the order tomorrow, he hasn’t shown any sign of being able to handle a fastball.”

    I think you have to consider it….I think Chen is pitching tomorrow so you may still want him around the middle against the lefty but the next right they face I’d consider.

    Jeter
    Ichiro
    Swisher
    Cano
    Tex
    Arod
    Granderson
    Martin
    Ibanez/Chavez

  1448. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Together

  1449. Yankees_Fan October 8th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Who’ll pitch the 9th?

  1450. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Luis, 110 pitches and agree about ignorance.

  1451. Brock October 8th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    I am proposing a new, catchy O’s slogan: “The Buck Stops Here.”

  1452. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Mow em down CC

  1453. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    blake, I hadn’t looked at the O’s pitcher-Arod is 2-7 with a dinger against Chen, he’ll probably bat him 3rd…

  1454. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    2 more.

  1455. Ken Phelps October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    The lost art of the complete game!!! Love it!

  1456. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    If CC untucks, they’ll feel the breeze in the dugout.

  1457. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Why is CC still in?

  1458. umbrelladoc October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    All those 1 run games caught up with the O’s. Watching the O’s down the stretch it was clear that Johnson was not as sharp. As was Soriano, BTW, which is why it’s good to have CC out there. Great positioning by Cano, wow.

  1459. PRicanYankees42 October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Nice defensive alignment

  1460. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    CC going for the CG! He and Verlander have made first game statements.

  1461. yankfan1 October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Hey maybe I’ll get one series right :)

  1462. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Thanks again, YF. I’m really worried about what we are heading to. Sorry about the politics post

  1463. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    This team nearly made it to the ALCS last year… We added Pettitte, Kuroda, and two very clutch veterans in Ichiro and Ibanez. A AMAZING difference. You just had to have a feeling that Ichiro and Ibanez would be the clutch veterans that we have always seen.

  1464. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Ripken is simply awful in the booth, he speaks in a monotone.

  1465. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    CC is making me cry.

  1466. Ken Phelps October 8th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Never had a 20 pitch inning… Impressive

  1467. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    I have no problem with CC finishing the game, he’s actually throwing his slider much better this inning than the rest of the game.

  1468. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    JUST WOW!

  1469. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    1 more!

  1470. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    WHAT A ABSOLUTE GEM AND MESSAGE SENT BY THE YANKEES. WOW

  1471. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    K UNO mas, C!

  1472. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    Anyone know pettitte’s numbers in the following situation?

    Playoff game 2′s when the team is up 1-0?

    I’m pretty sure its not pretty.

  1473. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    my only dislike about leaving him in is that it makes pitching him in game 4 if you wanted….you wouldn’t do that unless you’re down 2-1 in the series though.

  1474. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    If the Yanks advance and CC looks gassed Girardi should be smacked. This inning wasn’t necessary.

  1475. JorgesArm October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    This goes to show what playoff experience does for the Yanks

  1476. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    CC IS THE MAN!!!!!!! Take that cc haters!!!

  1477. Chambliss October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    masterful effort by sabathia. he has been on the corners all night

  1478. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Andy is going to go out and put the O’s in a 0-2 hole tomorrow, I don’t think Chen can shut down the Yankees.

  1479. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    CC, Nick Swisher, and Russell Martin just aren’t clutch in the post season.

  1480. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Player of the game ?

    Sabatha without question.. she quiet those that don’t think he’s an ACE.

  1481. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    best postseason start for the big guy since 2009 and maybe his best one ever…..faced a good lineup on the road….big big start

  1482. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:11 am
    If the Yanks advance and CC looks gassed Girardi should be smacked. This inning wasn’t necessary.

    =======

    CC,

    We have a rested bullpen going for AP tomorrow!!!

  1483. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    A scrub with more luck

  1484. Against All Odds October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    One of the best starts CC has ever had :D

  1485. Yankees_Fan October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    This has been one of the most amazing pitching performances I’ve seen from a Yankee pitcher lately, especially in the postseason. MVP goes to him after showing us what an ace he is!

  1486. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    C!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1487. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    lew Ford….that guy is getting annoying

  1488. Brock October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    That was one heck of a game by CC. Wow.

  1489. JorgesArm October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Lew Ford??? For real??

  1490. b_widmer2 October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    TheOtherPhil-

    Glad I was too early!

  1491. Bobby Murcer October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Very nice job by CC.

  1492. luis October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Nick,

    Thanks..I know…That’s why I apologized…

    JS,

    Thanks again…It appears to be

    I like that CC is out there…We save the whole BP for tomorrow’s game…While the O’s have used a big chunk of theirs, including the closer I like!

  1493. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    CC, I’d say you can untuck and shower!
    Masterpiece theater!

  1494. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    why not let him finish ? C’mon Joe let him throw a complete game in the PS. he gave up a hit big deal. Let him face one more bat at least.

  1495. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    Say goodnight, Gracie……CC is an ACE!!!

  1496. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    It’s nice to see that Pettitte was the 1st person to greet CC in the dug out. I am surprised that Pettitte is still awake lol. Gret job by CC.

  1497. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    GORGEOUS game by CC!!!!!

    I actually would have let him continue on for the third out, but I don’t know what his pitch count was.

  1498. Jerkface October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    Maybe not better than ALCS Game 1 vs LAA, but CC’s start is probably his 2nd best ever.

  1499. Duh Innings II October 8th, 2012 at 12:14 am

    Two outs, five run lead, double, and you take out CC?

    C’MON JOE!

  1500. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Lew Ford is sickening.. a disgrace to humanity

  1501. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Yes, Carlo, no doubt we’re in in deep trouble tomorrow night.

  1502. PRicanYankees42 October 8th, 2012 at 12:15 am

    CC you’re my Daddy! Wait what!? O.o :D

  1503. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:15 am

    JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Verlander was down 1 run at a point.
    Judge cc when he is done tonight.

    ***************

    Joba, I tip my cap to you for that post.

    ;)

  1504. Chambliss October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    all right. no screwing around here. end this now.

  1505. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    Don’t you bring in your closer here? I guess not because it’s a 5 run lead.

  1506. blake October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    “Maybe not better than ALCS Game 1 vs LAA, but CC’s start is probably his 2nd best ever.”

    this lineup is probably better than that Angels lineup though….at least they have more good fortune.

  1507. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    I’ll be in the Bronx Wed. Never saw a close-out game. Would love to be my 1st.

  1508. Yankees_Fan October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    120 pitchee for CC. Had to take him out there.

  1509. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 12:16 am

    Thanks for all the support. Really. Let’s keep it to baseball in order to keep it fair to the blog

  1510. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Jerkface, CC’s ALCS Game Four in 2009 was pretty great too. Maybe it’s overlooked because it was such a blowout on the other side vs. Scott Kazmir.

  1511. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Yes!!! Great job by CC.

  1512. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    That’s one!

  1513. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    This was a great win for us. Ill see you all tomorrow. Gotta get some sleep…Go Yankees!!!

  1514. jmills October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Gene Tenace / Pat Borders type game out of Martin ( I fell asleep through the top of the ninth :) )

  1515. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    UNTUCK!!!!!! CC with the GEM!!

  1516. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    GAME 1 BABY!!!!!

  1517. lil m October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    CC – Player of the Game – ACE!!!!

  1518. PRicanYankees42 October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Robertttsooonn!

  1519. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    This team’s offense isn’t consistent, but it can certainly be explosive.

  1520. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO!!!

    :)

    This is a team that demands you keep faith until the last out!

  1521. luis October 8th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Big win…Ace like performance by our non ace ;)

  1522. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    Get some sleep, everybody! See ya’ tomorrow night!

  1523. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    Untuck!

  1524. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    Cc is amazing.

    Offense finally wakes up, but cc shows he’s the real ace. Well done!

  1525. Duh Innings II October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    D-Rob not Sori to finish the game after three days of and with a day off Tuesday? WTF?

  1526. Brock October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    Important win. Can’t wait to see Andy on the mound tomorrow night.

  1527. MG October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    the 9th inning could be a big game changer for the O’s, they have a really good shot at being down 0-2 going to NY with Andy pitching tomorrow.

  1528. Yankees_Fan October 8th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    1-0 Yankees thanks to our ace!

  1529. Brock October 8th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    It is gonna be a great day at work tomorrow!

  1530. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 12:20 am

    Nick – I asked for a stat if someone had it. Nothing more. Thanks for ur useless response, however.

  1531. umbrelladoc October 8th, 2012 at 12:21 am

    DHII -
    Robertson had warmed up already. I’d like Sori to get as much time off as possible – he hasn’t been the same sincs the doubleheader.

  1532. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 12:24 am

    Can’t wait for Andy!

  1533. Jerkface October 8th, 2012 at 12:25 am

    this lineup is probably better than that Angels lineup though….at least they have more good fortune.

    The 2009 Angels had the 2nd best offense in the game. They are leagues better than this orioles team in my opinion.

  1534. Orioles_magic October 10th, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    >>>> “Mark Feinsand?@BloggingBombers
    The crowd just did an “O-R-I-O-L-E-S ORIOLES!” cheer like the Eagles do. In 12 years covering games here, I can’t recall ever hearing that.”

    Mark Feinsand has no idea what he is talking about. Ever since I was a child the Oriole Bird mascot has gotten up on the dug out, or in front of sections and used his body to make the letters O-R-I-O-L-E-S, which we all chant out, followed by ORIOLES, with the mascot throwing his hands up for more noise.

    Nice try. Mr. Feinsand, Please stick to what you know about.
