LHP Wei-Yin Chen (12-1, 4.02)
Chen vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 8:07 p.m., TBS

WEATHER: Chilly like last night, and also cloudy, but it looks like they’ll play on time. (scratch that)

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

FIVE IN NINE: The Yankees scored five runs in the ninth inning last night. It was the fourth time they scored that many runs in the ninth of a playoff game, all of which have come on the road (also 1936 World Series Game 2, 1936 World Series Game 6, and 1999 ALCS Game 4).

ALL ABOUT ANDY: At 40 years, three months and 24 days old, Andy Pettitte will be the fourth-oldest Yankee to make a postseason start. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only Roger Clemens (45 in 2007), Randy Johnson (43 in 2006) and David Wells (40 years, 4 months in October 2003) were older. … This will be his 43rd postseason start, which is nearly five times as many appearances as the entire Orioles staff entering this ALDS (9). … It will be Pettitte’s 16th start in Game 2 of a postseason series, most all time. Tom Glavine (11) has the second most.

FIRST TIMER: The Yankees have won four of their past five postseason games dating back to 2007 when facing a starting pitcher making his first postseason start.

ON THIS DATE: Today marks the anniversary of Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

UPDATE, 8:46 p.m.: Dan Rydell — or the guy who played him on SportsNight — threw out the first pitch. Mark Feinsand and I were quite pleased.

UPDATE, 8:55 p.m.: Looks like the right call to me. Tough break, but it’s a double play. Such is life for Rodriguez. He finally hits a ball kinda hard and it’s a double play.

UPDATE, 8:57 p.m.: And I think that call was right, too. Crazy dance by Ichiro for a 1-0 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 9;22 p.m.: Pettitte, six up, six down. Still a 1-0 lead.

UPDATE, 9:34 p.m.: Couple of two out singles are left stranded. Still a 1-0 game with Pettitte heading back to the mound for the third.

UPDATE, 9:44 p.m.: Pettitte retired the first eight Orioles. Now four straight have reached, capped by a two-run single by Chris Davis. All of this is with two outs, and suddenly the Orioles are up 2-1.

UPDATE, 9:50 p.m.: Horrible baserunning by Hardy, who somehow missed the sign and stopped at third. Cost the Orioles a run and it’s still 2-1 at the end of three.

UPDATE, 10:01 p.m.: Good hold by Thomson. No chance Teixeira scores on that play. He’s just not running well enough.

UPDATE, 10:07 p.m.: Jeter and Nunez can’t get the ball out of the infield and the bases are left stranded.

UPDATE, 10:11 p.m.: Rough game for Jeter at short.

UPDATE, 10:59 p.m.: That’s a gutsy baserunning decision by Nunez. Pays off in a hustle, bloop double to start the seventh.

    Switching it up to white towels tonight but sticking with the Soccer Chants at Camden.

  6. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

  13. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    lets go Yankees!!!

  14. MG October 8th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    I can’t think of another Yankees playoff game that felt more like a win than tonight.

    Baseball is tough to predict but the Yankees have to be almost prohibitive favorites after closing out last night’s game.

  15. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Go Andy! Go Yankees!
    Let’s go for the sweep!

  16. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Perfect timing since I just got home and sat down. :D Go Jeet

  17. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    jets losing already its sanchez’s fault…

  18. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    A poster made a comment earlier about his joy that “someone” wasn’t able to hijack the game thread and make it all about them, because posts were going by so fast. Talk about paranoia will destroya coupled with simplistic thinking.

    :roll:

    Just a hint for the poster adrift in an ocean of fantasy. I type fast. If I wanted to put up 100 posts, I’d do it. If I wanted to put up 200 posts, I’d do it. And it has nothing to do with me. It has to do with my passion about the Yanks.

    The reason my posts weren’t as plentiful as they might usually be is because frankly, I’m not sitting on the edge of my seat sweating these games. I expect the Yankees to sweep this series. I might sit up and take more note once we get to the CLS.

    So there you have it, like it or not. And really, “friend”, I couldn’t care less about your paranoia or your need to continue to write angst-filled posts because you just can’t contain your whacked-out disdain.

  19. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Try to take the crowd out of it again if we can.

  20. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    :)

  21. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Jete!

  22. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Atta boy, Jeet!

  23. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    That said,

    GO ANDY!!!

    GO YANKS!!!

    Interested to see if Hernandez still has a grudge against the Yanks.

  24. luis October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Unknown,

    Let’s hope he has a consistent k zone.

    Atta boy Jeet!

  25. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    good work Jeet

  26. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    base hit…take that!

  27. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Yanks were much heavier betting favorites last night, it just feels like they’re destined to win to us.

    More so now, after Jeter gives Pitcher Chen a rude welcome to playoff baseball.

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

    nick, don’t know whether you saw more earlier post. Did you get my message?

  29. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Hey everyone BOSS LADY TRIXIE PREDICTS THE YANKS TO SWEEP THE SERIES!

    I think you have now said this over 50 times, holy smokes no one cares you don’t have to make everything about you. Hijack in process I guess.

    Post away I like it when you make a fool of yourself.

    Carry on.

  30. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    here we go!!!

  31. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    here we go, keep it rolling alex!

  32. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Good start guys. Lets go a-rod!!

  33. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    That’s the start…. lets get a few this inning!

  34. luis October 8th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Tar,

    I hope you are in your lucky chair…I am in my lucky couch and with my lucky cap!. Thanks Mark!

    jmv,

    Are you having trouble with ABA the past two days?

  35. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    I got your chocolate order, yes, I will process it soon and you should be enjoying your winnings during a Yanks’ ALCS game.

    O’s fans will find that their white towels have dual uses.

  36. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    First big chance for #13.

  37. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    nick – no hurry. Just wanted to make sure.

    :)

  38. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Hey, Hey, Hey– Lets concentrate on what’s important–A Yankee win!!!!

  39. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    u gotta be kidding

  40. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Looks like the luck carried over….. jesus what a tree.

  41. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Bad luck.

  42. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    and the luck continues…

  43. luis October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Tough break…He hit it good

  44. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    hard luck dp,

  45. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Bad luck again…

  46. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    That was a good sign by A-Rod…. I wish they’d show a closer replay of that…. I don’t think he caught that on the line.

  47. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    we got rodney dangerfield type luck lol…

  48. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    We have no knowledge of whether or not that was a catch, and these effing fools on TBS are calling it a great play.

  49. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Ouch. :mad:

  50. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    I’m sorry but TBS not showing the replay from a different angle there is a joke. Lets see if he caught that thing or not. Great play regardless but 1st and 3rd 1 out would be nice.

  51. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Hey, luis!

    Actually I use Supercable, but mother in law uses ABA, and it’s getting troublesome

  52. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I CHI RO!!!

  53. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    whoooooooo

  54. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    icrazy score!

  55. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    An Ichi dance !! :d

  56. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Ich is awesome

  57. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    ICHIRO!!!!! What a play at the plate!!!! ICHIRO!!!!!!!!!!!! What a move.!!!!!!!

  58. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    No sabes?!

    ICHI!

  59. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I love you, Ichiro Astaire!

  60. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Wow. There’s some good luck. Ichiro got around that tag somehow holy christ

  61. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Ichiro! Are you kidding!

  62. Irreverent Discourse October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Like a ninja!

    … and very much out of the baseline.

  63. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Good job Arod. Should’ve dropped him to 8th.

  64. MG October 8th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    wow, I have played and watched baseball for almost 60 years and never seen a play at home plate like that…

  65. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    WOW, that was awesome.

  66. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    lol@Ichiro!

  67. luis October 8th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    That was a ballet slide from Ichi…He was out by a mile if he tags him, but he didn’t…Already is whacky game

  68. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    And look at all the replays of this one.

    Who wants to say TBS is unbiased?

  69. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Wow, just wow

  70. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Amazing by ochiro

  71. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    One good turn deserves another. Suck it O’s.

  72. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    awesome play by ichiro and a great call by the ump who was in perfect postion

  73. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    I once saw a chef at a Benihana who had moves like that. #disconcertingmetaphors

  74. scuzzles October 8th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Yanks are gonna feast on fast balls all nite. Thats really the only pitch they can hit.

  75. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Cano probably should be on 3rd but I think he was mesmerized by Ichiro…

  76. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    On the DP Ripken it’s not how we planned it, but “ill take it”. Ok shut up then

  77. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    yankee luck!

  78. JorgesArm October 8th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Let’s get a hit Swish…no whiff

  79. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    We have Chen’s number. Hoping for a blow out.

  80. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Man oh man!

    Watch for towels on the field and game delay!!!

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

    “Hey, Hey, Hey– Lets concentrate on what’s important–A Yankee win!!!!”

    Just wanted to set the blue-collar moron straight. I’ll now skip his purile posts so whatever he says in the future will be said totally for his need to keep blustering and I won’t have to be treated to it.

  81. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Tar-

    I like Ripken and obviously have a ton of respect for him but I don’t understand how TBS can put him on the O’s series. I don’t blame him for being biased to a team he really cares about. I blame TBS.

  82. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    if Andino trapped the ball they still get a DP so everything worked out the same.

    but is Andino doesn’t make that play the Yankees have a crooked number this inning…

  83. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    That was a good inning for us. Got one. A-rod hit it hard, cano stays hot

  84. Against All Odds October 8th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Cano seems locked in.

  85. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    first off Ichiro is amazing.. HOWEVER:

    why the heck was he sent from third (dunno 3rd base coch name) by that idiot.. this guy has really made some very idiotic calls this year, that would’ve been the worst if super-ichiro wasn’t running.

  86. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    So i’m trying to figure it out, were we lucky to score, or were we unlucky to only score one?

  87. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Its called effort, desire, and leadership! And Ichi’s got it all. Same as Raul!!

  88. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    what a weird inning. Got lucky with reynolds play, then got very unlucky with arod, then got very lucky with ichiro. LOL. All in all, What a inning.

  89. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Yep, bad send. Not the first.

  90. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:01 pm
    if Andino trapped the ball they still get a DP so everything worked out the same.

    but is Andino doesn’t make that play the Yankees have a crooked number this inning…
    ———————————————–

    they probably get A-Rod at 1st since it was scorched but I’d rather have a man on 3rd with 2 outs than a man on 1st obviously. It would have taken away that Ichiro drama/heart attack haha.

  91. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Tyler

    Yeah not Ripken’s fault and I do not blame him one bit to be rooting for the O’s. Totally correct in what was TBS thinking?

  92. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Ichi-matrix!!!

  93. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Tar-

    It’s just too obvious. I always thought Smoltz was a bit anti-Yankee (probably is just me) but he’s not terrible and the only connection is those old battles he had with the Yanks. It would be like having Mickey Mantle broadcast the Yanks.

  94. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Great call by Angel Hernandez. Very tough call to be patient like that and let the play develop all the way to the end. Usually when the ball beats you by that much you are going to be called out.

  95. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Tar,

    A little bit of both?

    jmv,

    Thanks, it comes and goes every single minute

  96. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Listen to Ripkin and Smoltz talk with reverence about Andy.

    It’s called R E S P E C T

  97. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Well, they’re almost making up for their anti-Yankee bias with their deep respect for Andy Pettitte. Almost.

  98. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    its so freakin great to see andy pettitte in another post season game!

  99. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    dominant inning!

  100. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Walk back to the bench scumbag. That pitch was a strike.

  101. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Lol

    Cool Andy!!

  102. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Awesome Andy!

  103. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    10 pitch first.. love it. Orioles a lil anxious??

  104. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Oh my. Andy looked pretty damn good there. only 10 pitches!!!

  105. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    ———————————————–

    Great point. I’m not a huge Angel Hernandez fan but that was a very good call on a tough play.

  106. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Vintage Andy. Can’t be content with just 1 run. Gotta continue to work over Chen…..take pitches, jump on fastballs.

  107. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    It’s just Andy making good pitch after good pitch…

  108. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    No problem, luis

    A lot of info today, huh?

  109. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    Respecting Pettite is a given, haha. Just like Jeter, Rivera, etc.

  110. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    “its so freakin great to see andy pettitte in another post season game!”

    i’ve been thinking that all day.

  111. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    HEY EVERYONE TRIXIE PREDICTS A SWEEP!

    She also think that Hernandez holds a grudge against the Yanks. Paranoia will destroya I guess. LOL

  112. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    I love the pettite!

  113. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Andy looks sharp. So far So good…. Ichi made lemonade from lemons!!!!Lets keep the train moving!!!

  114. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks Tyler. I was channeling my non-moron self on that thought. LOL HAHAHA.

  115. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    UnKnown-

    I’ve been having trouble with that lately haha.

  116. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    If we continue on top, O’s are going to feel more and more anxious… Let’s pile up runs!

  117. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Andy on the mound just screams a Yankees win. I hope we can stake him to a 3 or 4 run lead and he can just put it on Cruise Control.

  118. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    “Well, they’re almost making up for their anti-Yankee bias with their deep respect for Andy Pettitte. Almost.”

    nick – :lol:

    Tony, this series has sweep written all over it, don’t you think? I do wish I could get more psyched for it.

    “Listen to Ripkin and Smoltz talk with reverence about Andy.”

    The TNT crew did the same thing during the rain delay. It’s really awesome when you hear neutral (or not-so-neutral) parties gush about Yankee players.

  119. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Unknown,

    In deed…That was a great call from Hernandez…Usually he is very unfair toward the Yankees, so I am happy

  120. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Nunez, Jeter, Ichiro, to start the third. I like that.

  121. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Tex got started out with an 1-0 pitch. He should have taken some more – may have walked? Russell is hitting the ball well. Granderson just is terrible.

  122. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Chen is a pretty good pitcher but the Yankees will score some more runs..

    if Andy continues to make the pitches he did in the 1st inning, though, the O’s have no chance tonight.

  123. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Granderson is striking out a ton. He needs an offseason session with KLong.

  124. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Baseball hit a grand slam with the Postseason commercial, at least for fans of The Boss-Land of Hope and Dreams is such a perfect match for baseball…

  125. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    this is vintage Andy tonight spotting the fastball down and away to righties…

  126. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Jones is a scary hitter.

  127. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    I’m actually liking the 2-3 split. I’m not a fan of the 5-game series but I can’t think of any split that I really think screams HFA the way it should – other than 5-0, ha ha. In theory at least, the 2-3 works pretty well for HFA because in theory, the road team should at least split. And even if it loses both, you at least have the home crowd as your 10th player for the next 3.

  128. Ys Guy October 8th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    ANDY IN CHARGE!

  129. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Penny——DID I MISS THIS EVENINGS MENU?
    Did you make it through last nights game without a nap?

  130. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    These announcers made it seem like it was a sure thing that andy would be out by the sixth inning. Well… at only 22 pitches right now, a lot of bad things would have to happen for that to occur.

  131. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Maybe the best thing that ever happened to us was Andy taking off that year. Refreshed, revitalized, and (seemingly) renewable.

  132. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    I love Andy so much.

  133. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Hopefully they score a couple runs to add on insurance. Pettite looks great so far.

  134. J2L October 8th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    No hitter alert !

  135. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    In the spirit of you are starting to get my baseball superstition bone to start twitching, please STOP posting on how the Yankees Should win and how Andy is Going to dominate. I think those things as well but the more I see it in writing the more I say uh oh.

    I call for a moratorium on post that say we should win and should sweep. (at least until we do). Thank you

  136. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Pettitte is on!

  137. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Trisha- I think the 2-3 format is fine. Would you rather be down 0-2 at home or on the road as the top seed? Home. Would you rather be tied in a 1-1 series going on the road or going back home? Home. Would you rather be up 2-0 with a chance to clinch going on the road or going back home? Home.

  138. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    I grew up watching Whitey Ford, the Chairman of the Board, absolutely dominate batters with good stuff and great control.

    Warren Spahn was the same, he could throw fastballs on the black all day and night even at age 46.

    Andy, in the last couple of years he has pitched, is the closest thing I’ve ever seen to Whitey and Spahn-it’s just a joy to watch him work out there.

  139. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Tyler, I certainly believe that’s going to happen, but I think it’s also good for fans to get the feel of low-scoring games and knowing they can be won too. And games where the Ys are losing can be won too!

    :)

    Breaking pitch low and away absolutely kills him. I can’t remember the last time he’s doing something with that.

  141. JM October 8th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    MG,

    Gotta agree about Land of Hope and Dreams. Probably my favorite new Springsteen song since he got the band back together….

    Andy looks beastly so far.

  142. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    chen is around the plate and that plate is HUGE

  143. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    gift strike on jeter.

  144. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    I think strike 3 was a good call but the first 2 strikes seemed questionable…

  145. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Andy is throwing knuckleballs at 88 mph…

  146. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Angel Hernandez is flip a coin back there….but he did make a great call on the incredible slide by Ichiro!

  147. annarasuna October 8th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Very nice game, thanks for the information.

  148. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Tabbert – absolutely agree with all of it. Selig accidentally fell on something good. Unfortunately it changes next year from what I’ve read.

    Tar – does it matter if one changes “should” to “will”? (Because I can easily oblige that. In fact I think I already have!)

    ;)

  149. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    JM, I’m liking it more and more, it’s getting up there on my favorites list (which is a long one)-it’s pretty funny that he wrote it in 1999 and it just made its way on to a CD in 2012…

  150. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Memo to self: hold off on “Yanks will go 11-0″ prediction until later.

  151. JM October 8th, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    eboland11 A typical Angel Hernandez-called game from behind the plate as, less than 3 innings in, both teams equally disgusted with strike zone

    LOL

  157. JM October 8th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    MG,

    It’s a great song, and, on a baseball-related note, Springsteen’s a huge Yankees fan. I was at a show at the Garden in 2009 a couple of days after the World Series ended and he gave a shout-out to the “World Champion New York Yankees”

  161. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Tyler, they might do it for you. But here’s another way to look at it. If the game goes quickly, you’ll get to sleep even earlier!

  162. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    come on Robbie!

  163. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    very true! hopefully they win either way! I’ll sacrifice sleep!

  167. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Hernandez is calling the extreme high strike…That’s why Nunie popoutand Ichiro swung at those really high pitches…Could be tough if he calls the low strike as well

  168. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Alex had good swings last night and seemed like he was seeing the ball ok….he was just late….

  169. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Angel has geographic strike zone as usually

  170. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    At least arod got a decent hit

  171. The Return of Stoneburner October 8th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Dang – 0 for 3 w/ RISP so far

  172. ctyankeefan. October 8th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    I got spoiled with the actually very good strike zone from yesterday.

  173. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    That would have been really big. Keep it up Andy!

  174. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    if Hernandez continues to have a big strike zone the O’s are really going to have a problem getting anything off Andy, he will just expand the zone and give them nothing to hit…

  175. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Damn. Still a great job to make something out of nothing with two outs. Looked like chen might have a easy inning and we forced him to make a ton of high stress pitches.

  176. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Jets only down 1 td?
    I am surprised

  177. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Really thought Robbie was going to crush it there. Would have essentially ended the game and maybe the series. Not feeling comfy with the 1-0 lead

  178. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Black and blue from pinching myself to make sure I’m not dreaming every time I look at Ichiro in Yankee pinstripes. Dollar for dollar/player for player, I think that’s one of Cashman’s finest moments.

  179. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    “Angel has geographic strike zone as usually”

    Andy is smart enough to exploit this, so Im ok with that. It’s up to our offense to realize it and maybe be extra aggresive.

  185. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Sorry if my posts arrive one inning later, we are having trouble with internet this side of the Caribbean Sea…

  186. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Granderson is playing so deep…

  187. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Here’s what I’ve never liked about a 1-0 lead especially going into the later innings, and when you’re the team with the one run. It can fall apart very quickly. And it usually does. The pitcher with the one-run lead seems to lose focus when the lead disappears and then is vulnerable to more than run. Purely anecdotal of course.

  188. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Bear down Andy….

  189. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    2 outs. No worries.

  190. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

  197. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Andy’s made some bad pitches this inning, he’ll recover just the way CC did last night from his bad inning…

  198. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Everything is falling in front of them…

  199. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    vc, I was definitely speaking generally. However…

    I’m hoping something isn’t wrong with Andy, only because it’s unusual for him to have this kind of problem.

  200. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    I hate the Orioles

  202. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Dang I wish he would’ve went more aggressive after Hardy. Hardy is 1 for 18 against Pettitte.

  221. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Im so sick of these lucky hits. Now another. I cant believe Jeter didnt keep that ball in front of him. Lucky Hardy stayed at 3rd.

    I dont understand what’s going on. Please get out of this with no more damage

  222. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Well that was lucky!

    (Isn’t this exactly the way it happened last night, score wise?)

  223. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Very lucky that he didn’t score there. I don’t think Jeter could have gotten an out but I’ve never seen him miss that completely.

  224. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Looks like A-Rod deked Hardy.

  225. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

  226. The Return of Stoneburner October 8th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

  234. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Wieters bailed us out….exhales………think Jeter was thinking about what to do with it after he caught it more than catching it first there.

  235. MG October 8th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    that was a big break for the Yankees there, Hardy should have scored easily.

    I’ve watched Andy his whole career and he sometimes has a bad inning but usually bounces back-I’ll give the O’s credit for taking advantage of some bad pitches with 2 outs.

  236. LGY October 8th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

  239. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

  241. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    Hardy bailed us out too.

    :)

    O’s know they can’t rest on their laurels. Time to hit Chen because Hernandez isn’t going to do us any favors.

  242. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    The o’s do something with their base runners the yanks don’t. This is just like yesterday when guys got on against CC and they scored. The yanks have to start getting hits with risp and 2 out hits. That was a really bad inning.

  243. blake October 8th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    “Very lucky that he didn’t score there. I don’t think Jeter could have gotten an out but I’ve never seen him miss that completely.”

    I think he was planning on trying to pick Hardy off 3B rounding too far and he just forgot to catch the ball first.

  244. luis October 8th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    We were lucky there…Hardy not running all the way to home was a Godsend…The baseball Gods are very unforgiving, let’s hope we tack on some runs now in this next inning

  245. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Can you guys stop staying we should get a pitcher, or that our starting pitcher has it after 2 god damn innings. Our pitcher can have it, and he can still get beaten to death with lucky hits. Bloopers, seeing eye hits, and broken bats.

  246. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    ” I don’t think Jeter could have gotten an out but I’ve never seen him miss that completely.”

    That was reminiscent of the play that Robbie didn’t make to end that game awhile back. You say to yourself he’s got it , wait what just happened.

  249. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    blake-

    I think that was his only play. Jones has good speed and Hardy was pretty much at 3rd already.

  250. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    That was big for them to make the O’s regret the base-running blunder, now we have to stoce and make it *hurt*!

  251. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    I’m pretty sure Hardy thought Ichiro was throwing to A-Rod at third. When A-Rod went for the deke, Hardy pulled up.

  252. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    “Jeter’s lack of range really on display the past two nights.”

    It’s not “lack of range” if the ball goes over or under his glove.

  253. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Terrible at bat from swisher

  254. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    It’s not “lack of range” if the ball goes over or under his glove.

    ———

    Why do you think the ball went under his glove? A SS with average range makes that play easily but for Jeter it was a difficult play.

    That’s the third ball in two nights that doesn’t get by a SS with average range.

  264. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    The Yankees are getting by on wiliness tonight ;)

  265. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    It would be great to answer swiftly here this inning.

  266. Jeff NJ October 8th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    rally caps

  267. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Yep, O’s were 2 for 9 RISP last night, yanks were 3 for 8

  268. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    curtis gonna jack 1

  269. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Time for a grandybomb…

  270. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Rally time. Time to get a run(s) back here boys!

  271. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    These guys are crying about Hardy’s mistake.

    And theyre patently wrong about the unfairness of sports.

    The unfairness of sports happens when luck comes into play.

    Hardy simply made a mistake.

  272. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    C’mon Granderson. Don’t f’in whiff.

  273. J2L October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    No K Alert

  274. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    with jones running, even if jeter gets the ball he aint throwing it to first

  275. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    You know, you really can’t blame Hardy for that. Maybe he should have been watching Hale, but he got deeked. Hell we’ve gottten deeked before.

  276. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    a 2 and 0 breaking ball? Really?

  277. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Tex got deked

  278. Jeff NJ October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Wish Tex had two healthy calves

  279. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    bad calf may have cost us there…..come on Nunie!

  280. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    that works, one leg tex

  281. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Lets get at least one.

  282. LGY October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Another hit with RISP that doesn’t score a run :mad:

    Let’s go Nunez!!

  283. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Lets go nunie!!

  284. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    huge at bat here for nunez…

  285. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    goddammit

  286. Jeff NJ October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Must have been ARods fault

  287. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Would like to see more of that from Granderson.

  288. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    That’s the best pure swing I’ve seen from Grandy in a while. Right back up the middle. It stinks that Tex isn’t running well.

  289. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Just get it in the air (deep) Nunez!

  290. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Here we go, Nuney….

  291. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Chen isn’t fooling guys tonight. Andy just has to scrap it out a couple of more innings.

  292. Tabbert October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    That ball was hit very hard and jones got that in very quick. Would have been tough for a lot of guys to score on that.

  293. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    “Why do you think the ball went under his glove? ”

    Because in this case he took his eye off the ball to peek at the runner. but I know it doesn’t fit with your narrative. By your definition the fastest SS is the best SS. Kind of like Nunez huh? Just shut up about Jete and range already.

  294. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    nunny

  295. MG October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Nunez had his pitch there, just missed it…

  296. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    At least tie the game

  297. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

  298. The Return of Stoneburner October 8th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Please Nunie – - – -

  299. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Just put this thing in play Nuney. You can beat out a ground ball. Try to resist sliding head first and just run through the bag if it comes to it.

  300. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    wtf

  301. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

  306. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Not a strike!

  307. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    That ball was way inside. Give me a break.

  308. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    WHAT WAS THAT!!!!!!

  309. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

  319. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Nunez sucks, though the call was bad

  320. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    well Nunez had to swing at it….was just called a strike.

  321. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Pick him up Captain.

  322. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    that call changes the entire at bat…

  323. I Am Winning October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    With 2 strikes Nunez was going to swing at anything.

  324. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Why wasn’t that strike one? Same as Nunie’s.

    :roll:

  325. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Not a strike? Whaaa???

  326. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    surprised that wasn’t a strike.

    Funny when Andy lost the strike zone last inning there were no gift strikes

  327. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    tbs crew is hard is a hard listen. never thought id want to hear Kay

  328. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Since internet service is so bad, I switched to the phone. Hernandez crazy k zone is killing us, the second strike called to nunie set up the rest of the at bat.

    About the Hardy play, saw the replay and Arod did an extraordinary fooling job. Still, the player has to look to the coach, he didn’t.

  329. The Return of Stoneburner October 8th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    The fastest SS is the best SS? Huh?

    His lack of range has been really clear the past two nights. Just look on twitter if you want to see how many people recognize it, so it’s not my “narrative”

  337. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    You gotta know that karma’s coming. Hernandez isn’t deciding this game. So we wait a while longer.

  338. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    That 1-2 strike call change the entire nunez AB!!

  339. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

  345. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Really not fair to put that on the Yanks.

    Trisha, and if “karma” fails us, we’re just gonna have to tie Hernandez to a tree in Central Park! :)

  349. YankeesFanMan October 8th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Nunez really shouldn’t be in this lineup.

  350. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

  353. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    And thanks a lot to Nunez. God forbid the kid comes up in a big spot, ignores the umpires cheat, and get the job done. Nope for Nunez

  354. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

  369. moctezuma October 8th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Bad call changed that whole inning. Why have computerized pitch track for the fans but not the umps. Put it on an iPad that the crew chief checks or have a guy in a box upstairs that relays the correct decision by ear piece. Come on MLB! There is great technology out there. Use some of it.

  370. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

  375. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Great defense from Jeter. That is a terrible error to lead off an inning. Just dreadful.

    what a play by tex to keep him at first…

  377. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

  381. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Not a strike?

  382. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    The umpire is absoltuely dreadful. In the 3rd innign he wouldn’t give Pettite any close pitches strikes and then has nerve to call that pitch to Nunez a strike. That completely changed the while at bat. Teh superstars can’t get big hits but the AAA losers on the O’s get bloops and singles in the infield. Unreal.

  383. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Derek hasn’t looked comfortable defensively the whole series….don’t know what’s up with him.

    ——–

    there’s got to be some sort of technology that senses the pitch coming across the plate.

    pre-capture every batter’s strikezone, plug it into the computer and let it automatically detect balls and strikes. the umps will be there for other plays.

  385. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Jeter isn’t having a great night a the field. Still, I think he has earned a pass. We are in the PS, in no small part because of him.

  386. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Andy is getting nothing after a big 1st inning k zone

  387. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Hernandez’s erratic strike zone couldn’t suck more.

  388. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Not a strike again?

  389. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Nice pitch

  390. MG October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    that was Andy’s best breaking ball of the night to get Thome…

  391. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    2 errors by jeter.

  392. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    “Wet ball?”

    maybe…….just seems out of sync

  393. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Hernandez gives us 1 fair call, and now it’s time to cheat us all game to make up for it. Disgusting

  394. LGY October 8th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    All I hear you harp on is range. So is range the most important aspect of a good SS or not?

    And beside he is the SS you have, so enough of your belly aching about it.

    ——-

    Pure speed is not the only component of range especially for an IF. First step, reading the ball off the bat, lateral quickness, lower body strength etc.

    I had no desire to get into an extended argument about Jeter when I made the comment. It was simply an observation I made watching the two games that I honestly thought was fairly obvious.

  395. Lost October 8th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    These bats … these bats.. need I say more ?

  396. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    The Yanks are hitting like they have been all year. I don’t know why I thought that it would change now. They can’t keep wasting those scoring chances. Chen has thrown a lot of hittable pitches but they just aren’t squaring them up.

  397. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Johnson got excited on that pop up.

  398. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

  399. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Didn’t get in far enough. He’s young. He’ll chase.

  400. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Nunez is not to blame. If the ump is calling a pitch 8 inches inside a strike, he has to swing at it. If this guy Hernandez had a decent strikzone, we would be probably singing a different tune

  401. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    GIDP would be nice.

    I’m getting tired of the RISP problems with this team. Can’t they ever find consistency?

  402. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    right along the line????? ball was 20ft foul

  403. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    “Hernandez gives us 1 fair call, and now it’s time to cheat us all game to make up for it. Disgusting”

    Funny you say that. I was going to say that Hernandez deeked us in the first so he could screw us the rest of the night.

  409. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Great play by A-Rod. He looks much better tonight. Good fielding and better hitting.

  410. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    arod and jeter both putting their hands in their back pockets between pitches. looks like it’s cold and jeter didn’t get a good grip on it.

  411. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    And that was a great play by A-Rod.

  412. Bronx Jeers October 8th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

  421. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    It’s amazing that the worst umpires in baseball are allowed to work games in the post season. Angel Hernandez is absoltuely terrible. Him squeezing Pettite in the 3rd inning completely changed that inning.

  422. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Clutch inning from Pettitte

  423. Tyler October 8th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    I thought that was the first inning that the strike zone wasn’t the same for both teams. It’s been atrocious all night but I thought Pettite had several borderline pitches go against him.

  424. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Ichiro leads off here. Let’s see what happens.

    One pitch to Nunez is not going to decide this game.

  425. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Clutch – Selig wouldn’t know a good umpire if it smacked him square in the face because he doesn’t trouble himself with things like that. Too busy working the circuit trying to prop himself up. Can’t believe Kay would waste a Center Stage on him.

  426. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Derek Jeter is my hero.. Jump back and leave my boy alone…. He’s earned a pass..
    Lets get some this inning… Its our time for an offensive explosion….

  428. Lost October 8th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Yanks love to make mediocre pitchers look like ACE’s I just don’t get it.. how many games have we scored quick only for bats to get cold the rest of the game.. these one run nail biters are giving me heartburn.

    I honestly don’t recall the last time I saw Jeter get a hit with bases loaded.. especially in a game that is so close. I am aware of his RISP stats but they need to add RISP-CL (clutch).

    I’m more than happy to have HR hero’s tonight.. but c’mon this is Chen .. not young nolan ryan.. c’mon yanks.. enough already!

  429. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

  430. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    The Yanks have to start having some tough at bats against Chen. Take some pitches and make him work. His command is off, his stuff is decent at best and they are in swing mode. 2 pitches and 2 outs. Great job Arod. Just terrible.

  431. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

  449. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Nice to show some life in that inning. I miss the days when they would battle pitchers. Foul pitches off, swing at strikes and wait for a pitcher to make a mistake. Now it’s just easy and quick at bats. The double play in the 1st inning completely changed this game. Now they look awful.

    Offense needs to regroup. Andy needs another shut down inning, and then offense needs to make Chen work. Can’t let Hernandez decide the winner. Taking it to the car for a short while but I’ll be listening intently. Yanks should have taken the lead back by the end of the 6th. (Now let’s hope they do!)

  468. MG October 8th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    This gets tiring explaining but the league OPS’s under .600 against Chen when he gets ahead 0-1.

    The league OPS’s .854 when putting the 1st pitch in play and it’s even higher with 1-0 or 2-0 counts.

    So, if he throws 1st pitch strikes, they can’t just automatically take it.

    They aren’t chasing pitches out of the zone, Chen is just throwing 1st pitch strikes right now…

  469. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    The Yankees will pounce on Chen if Buck leaves him in there too long tired. Buck will be tempted to squeeze Chen because the bullpen was taxed last night and the closer got bombed.

    This lineup is built to feast on tiring pitchers and burnt relievers.

    So maybe Tex isn’t so bad at 1st after all? Maybe it’s the grass or dirt?

  548. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    that was a hanger and Granderson missed it.

  549. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Ugh,

  550. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Eesh.

  551. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    A hanging curveball and Granderson can’t hit it. It’s amazing how many hanging pithces they have missed the last 2 games. This series will be over quick if the offense doesn’t start getting hits in spots like that.

  552. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    If Andy gets through this inning without giving up more runs, Yanks will win.

  553. BA October 8th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Where is Andruw Jones when you need him? Just kidding Nunez will come through.

  554. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Nunez starts the next inning…If he gets on base, we will create havoc and score a few runs

  555. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    More of the same.

  556. Hassey October 8th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Hey it’s only a five game series anyway- the series is going to be over quick no matter what

  557. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    I just want Granderson off this team. He is a waste of a roster spot.

  558. Hassey October 8th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Gulp wake up joba

  559. Bx is Burning October 8th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    That’s the talk, Luis.

  560. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Damn…1 more run is probably the game.

  561. EA October 8th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Every year we win game 1 only to disappoint

    05 – beat LAA in gm 1 and lost in 5
    06 – beat DET in gm 1 and lost in 4
    10 – beat TEX in ALCS and lose in 6
    11 – beat DET in game 1 and lose in 5

  562. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    GG

  563. NYY fan in NH October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    so in all reality, you take away the 9th inning last night and the Yanks have scored 3 runs in the last 14 innings. That’s not good. Now it’s 3-1. Andy couldn’t keep it up….

  564. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Might be time to get the pen busy, Joe.

  565. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Time for the bullpen?

  566. Marcus October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Yanks still have time.

  567. Niblick October 8th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Ugh

  568. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Anybody who still thinks the Yankees can sweep this team needs to wake up and smell the age.

    This Yankee team is old and on the decline, and this game is only a photo of what is to come if they don’t start getting younger soon.

  569. Marcus October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    These announcers are awful.

  570. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    That sucked

  571. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Man…

  572. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Another loser player with a hit. Pettite wasn’t going to hold them down for that much longer. Now gets ready for game 3.

  573. BA October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Smoltz really hates the Yankees. Ripken is more objective.

  574. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    It’s getting dark early with that Bal Bullpen looming. JJ isn’t going to give up five runs tonight….

  575. Niblick October 8th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Crappy job by Pettitte and the rest of the team today.

  576. NYY fan in NH October 8th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Really disappointed in the offense. Especially when they beat Chen twice in September. Could have been a winnable game.

  577. qiantom October 8th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Yankees know how to hit home runs. The O’s know how to hit to win.

  578. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    I would get the bullpen ready I think Pettitte is done.

  579. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Is anyone warming up?

  580. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    How do they let a slow catcher go to second on that ball that didnt even touch the wall…

  581. Niblick October 8th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    This baby’s going 5. Kuroda will win; Hughsie has been awful lately. It’ll be up to the big guy in game 5.

  582. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    What a waste of a game.

  583. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    keep it down Andy, get the DP

  584. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    qiantom – we are up 1-0 in the series and won the division and have the best record in the AL – but i guess we don’t how how to “hit to win”

  585. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    This game is not over yet.

  586. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    brappy55 – your parents did a terrible job raising you.

  587. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Niblick, I just don’t trust those two farther than I can throw them. I’m just worried about *getting* to Game 5…

  588. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Atta boy, Andy.

  589. Marcus October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    DP!

  590. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Not over yet.

  591. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Andy does the job. I have an idea. Hits.

  592. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    limited the damage again but they have to start swing the bats or it doesn’t matter.

  593. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Good DP there. Lets score some.
    Can’t lose this game. Momentum changer if
    We do.

  594. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Yay, DP!

  595. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Lots of ‘em, Phil!!

  596. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    One thing is for damn sure this Yankee team is not going to quit these last 3 innings and roll over. This game is very much still in play.

  597. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Macchado is a deer in the headlights out there.

  598. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Andy has heart.

  599. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    The O’s have taken advantage of every opportunity they have with risp. The Yanks failed big time. Cano with 1st and 2nd…nothing. Bases loaded….nothing. You can’t win that way.

  600. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Andy has done his thing and managed to get through 6 innings and has given them a chance…..Yanks have to swing the bats….that was always going to decide if they won in these playoffs or not IMO.

  601. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    they can string together 3-4 hits…. hr is the only chance

  602. willwill October 8th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    ID hate to see this offense vs a good pitcher

  603. Madrugador October 8th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Andy through the sixth with less than 90 pitches. He gets us through the seventh. Gets some work for two of the relievers to keep them sharp. Off day tomorrow and we are in great shape for game three. And that is if we don’t win.

  604. Hassey October 8th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Sometimes it looks like our hitters enter the box without their cleats on…like they’re digging in in just chuck taylors

  605. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Now you can hear the booth laughing and having a good time. The extra run gave the 3 broadcasters a little more breathing room to relax

  606. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    now is the time….I wouldn’t count on damaging their pen again.

  607. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    The fact that Chen is pitching into the 7th inning is unreal. He was terrible in September and didn’t pitch deep into games.

  608. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Andy’s really manning up and firing all his bullets.
    The offense needs to come out of hibernation…again.
    I feel a rally against Strop coming on…

  609. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Show time, Nunie.

  610. Tar October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Freakin Nunie!!!!

  611. Marcus October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Nunie!!

  612. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Nuney…great hustle.

  613. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Angel has no idea….that’s a strike but he’s called it a ball about half the time tonight.

    Great job Nunie

  614. Bx is Burning October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Nunez! Effin’ awesome!

  615. NYY fan in NH October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    The kid makes things happen when he plays. Nice job Nunez

  616. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Fantastic effort by Nunez

  617. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Go Nunie!

  618. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Great hustle Nunez. Eff you Ump.

  619. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Go Nunez!!!! Great hustle from him. Now they have to take advantage of the situation.

  620. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Here we go!

  621. luis October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    He got on!! He already created some havoc… Now we score a bunch

  622. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    ya nun

  623. LGY October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Hustle doubles the best doubles

  624. Madrugador October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Luis called it.

  625. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    That run *HAS* to score or we’re up It Creek.

  626. BD (Boston Dave) October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    this is the inning

  627. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Here comes a bunt….

  628. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    They’ve strung together 3 baserunners here. They just need that 4th to get runs across.
    Or productive outs. Those are undervalued.

  629. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Go Jeet!

  630. PRicanYankees42 October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Hussle double!

  631. blake October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    park one Derek

  632. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    What in the world is he swinging at…some patience.

  633. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    I cant believe Chris Davis nearly made that play.

    I cant believe the Orioles play him in RF.

    Chris Davis is the missing link between man and neanderthal.

  634. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Send him….

  635. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Andy Pettite is a Warrior.

  636. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    I am shocked that Jeter isn’t bunting. He just swung at 2 terrible pitches.

  637. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Boss: I thought that was Michael Morse.

  638. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Come on Jeter. Almost walked Nunez on four pitches and you swing at the first two? I guess I’ll give you te benefit of the doubt…you do have like 3200 hits…

  639. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Jeter, come on, you can

  640. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Jeter is overly aggressive tonight..

  641. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Can’t we get some fan support..It’s not over, not even close!!! Please if you don’t have something supportive to add please keep your inane posts to yourself….

  642. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Great job nunie

  643. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    El Capitan!

  644. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    ok…keep it going.

  645. Marcus October 8th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Clutch!!

  646. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Derek Jeter grit!…Nunez created that run.

  647. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    But what do I know, he’s got some 3000 more hits than me ;)

  648. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Speed!

  649. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Go Jeter! Too bad Pettite gave up that extra run. I love watching Nunez on the bases. He got a late start and continues to run.

  650. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Jet-ah!

  651. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    The Captain! Gotta love it.

  652. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    I take it back Jeter. I knew giving you the benefit of the doubt was the right thing to do… :)

  653. JM October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    They are due for a big inning….Let’s go

  654. Hassey October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Great send by Robbie t there

  655. Bx is Burning October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Luis called that. Eff downers saying this ish was over.

  656. LGY October 8th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Interesting. It looked like Jeter was trying to pull that entire at bat.

  657. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    That was almost the Yankee specialty RISP hit with no run scored, but Nunez refused to play ball.

  658. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Ichiro should just swing the bat. He is going to mess up the at bat by trying to bunt.

  659. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    I’d like to see Arod be a hero

  660. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    letzzz goooo!!!!

  661. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    @nick
    So true.

  662. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    “Interesting. It looked like Jeter was trying to pull that entire at bat.”

    he was trying to take the lead on that first pitch

  663. syd_cash October 8th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    big at bat by Jeter….c’mon guys lets rally

  664. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    do you send ichiro here?

  665. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Good thing he beat that out. Now he has to try and steal 2nd base.

  666. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Failed to move runner

  667. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Now time for A-rod to hit it out…

  668. Hassey October 8th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Smoke and mirrors starting pitching staff

  669. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    hit one in the gap

  670. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Alex has to battle tough here and not make an out…..

  671. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    I wouldn’t send him with Wieters on a wet track.

  672. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    The Yankees needed to do more against Chen. Now we’re fighting that bullpen.

  673. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Yes I send Ichiro here.

  674. J2L October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Lighting-Rod Alert !

  675. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Awesome inning there by Nunez. Robbie T sent him home, but nothing was going to stop that guy from scoring. Hustling into 2nd and busting it home. Love it.

    Another exciting game tonight.

  676. Rich K. October 8th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Arod time!!!!

  677. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    I am not done yet… I said a bunch of runs… Arod gets on base and Cano makes them pay and allows me to say “no sabes?” ;)

  678. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Ichiro’s gotta try for 2nd here to avoid a double play.

    Pettitte and Ibanez are 2 40 year olds that want it.

  679. Madrugador October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Love to see Arod hit one out but recent history makes it unlikely. Send Ichiro, Arod singles him in.

  680. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    O’day is probably quick to the plate. So forget about stealing.

  681. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Sending Ichiro is a tough tough call. I can see both sides of the argument on that very clearly.

    I probably wouldn’t just because we are behind. Tied or ahead I would.

    But if Joe feels it then go go go. I trust Ichiro can make it.

  682. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Go A-Rod!!!

  683. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Gotta send Ichiro to stay out of the DP and give Cano a chance

  684. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Alex, mental ginger.

  685. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Park one Alex

  686. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    that was the pitch

  687. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Here comes the boom!

  688. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Arod will do what he does best … choke!

  689. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    To RF A-Rod!

  690. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Arod can’t square anything up

  691. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Watch for the pitch out now 1-2 count.

  692. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    He had it stolen :(

  693. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Stepping out of the room because I can’t watch ARod strike out again

  694. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    C’mon Arod, pretend it’s that May evening in Baltimore 2009!

  695. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Or he might just fall over trying to hit the sidearmer. :)

  696. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    You can say all you want about Arod, but even now, what hitter he is

  697. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    A walk would be wonderful

  698. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    hang that slider here

  699. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    ball 4

  700. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    The whole arod ab is just ugly

  701. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    That was ball 4. Arod really is lost.

  702. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Every time O’Day shakes back and forth on the mound, it’s a balk. FYI

  703. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    I think there will need to be an autopsy on A-Rod’s brain when he passes. There has to be something wrong that a human being can be this inept at the plate! :S

  704. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    No sabes ahora!

  705. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Obi-wan Cano, you’re our only hope…

  706. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Come on. Get a hit here.

  707. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Arod got nothing to show.

    Just pathetic

  708. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:09 pm
    Stepping out of the room because I can’t watch ARod strike out again
    ——————————————————————————————————-
    Stay out LOSER!!!!!

  709. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Why the constant mental ginger??? It’s not mental with Alex. He simply lacks the skill now.

  710. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Jeezus Christ Arod. I hate to say it but man you suck this series.

  711. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Time for Cano to be The Man.

  712. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Boss: I thought so too but doesn’t he come set after?

  713. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    A-Rod didn’t seem to try to push it to RF. Strange. Maybe he tryed to protect the runner too much, but was in pull-mode

  714. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Whoever said Arod is in “pass the baton” mode was completely right. He should just carry Cano’s bat out to the plate for him.

  715. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    he swings and misses so much, so hard to watch

  716. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    No sabes?

  717. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    arod has consistently missed all these hittable pitches. leads me to believe he’s hurt.

  718. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Yeah, he’s so inept he has almost 3000 hits and over 600 HR.

  719. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    $30 million for that clown!

  720. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    C’mon cano – break the RISP curse Fer cripes sake.

  721. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    It really stinks to see Arod look this bad. He is late on so many pitches and just looks terrible. Now it’s up to Cano like always to carry this team. It’s obvious that Arod is too over the hill to get any big hits.

  722. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Jackamir…dude, relax. Just frustrated. I’m as big of a fan as anyone here, just annoyed and obviously rightly so.

  723. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Well advancing in the postseason comes down to at bats like Cano is about to have. You come through in the clutch you move on you don’t you go home.

    I’m not saying this AB is the season, but it’s 2 or 3 key moments in postseason games that decide your fate. This is one of those moments.

    Let’s Go #24.

  724. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Come on Cano. Just a single is all we need.

  725. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Respect.

  726. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Past is past. Arod has really declined this year. A shell of his former self.

  727. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    You pussies.

  728. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Phil, Once you’re on the rubber, you cant move. That’s my understanding. It’s like Matt Garza shaking his glove around on the rubber.

  729. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    swish… make ur money here

  730. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Aw BOO

  731. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Insert Swish for Cano’s moment.

    Let’s Go #33.

  732. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Time for Swisher magic. Come on, Nick!

  733. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Walking Cano..lol Why didn’t loser Buck just have the last pitcher do that.

  734. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Swish, time to redefine your PS status!

  735. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    no cano, swish

  736. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Make them pay, Nicky.

  737. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Swisher time.

  738. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    I knew it… Good call by Buck… Swish, please no hero swings, just a nice and compact swing up the middle is great

  739. Bret The Hitman October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Arod has not much more baseball left in him. That’s the good news. He won’t be on the field much. The bad news is they have to pay him and 30 million is frozen.

  740. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Here come off speed pitches to Swisher…..

  741. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Can Swisher put aside the demons of postseasons past?

  742. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    I asked for the lead. This would be a good time…

  743. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Boss: Maybe so. So many pitchers move around before coming set, balks barely get called unless they are really blatant.

  744. Madrugador October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Give me a little old bingle now.

  745. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    base hit could take the lead now!

  746. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Here we go stay level make him throw strikes

  747. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    man that was a cookie Swish

  748. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Just contact, Swish!

  749. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    Come on, let’s go Swisher!

  750. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    breaking pitch down the freeegggginnn middle.

  751. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Oh Swish. So many chances.

  752. kd October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    this game is intense

  753. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    torture

  754. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    I would walk Swisher to face Texiera.

  755. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Just missed.

  756. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    just shorten up the swing man…

  757. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    just missed it….

  758. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    just got under it.

  759. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    sigh. again.

  760. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    :(

    Okay, so we have to do it in the next two innings.

  761. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    I am so tired of Swisher. He’s just incapable of getting a postseason RISP hit.

    He cant even luck into one.

  762. JM October 8th, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Sigh

  763. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Swish had to swing the bat. That 1-0 fastball was right there to hit. This offense is SOOOOO hard to watch.

  764. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    God f’in crapper.

  765. JobaTipsHisCap October 8th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Tie series, that’s it for tonight.

  766. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    When Swisher proves he can hit an off speed pitch over the middle of the plate then I’ll believe in him. Until then….

  767. Bret The Hitman October 8th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    So far, once again, Tex, Arod and Swisher haven’t done much to carry this team.

  768. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Need to put up a zero here. This is the key inning.

  769. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    :( We are going to see this a lot this PS if someone doesn’t steps it up to protect Cano.

    On the bright side, we score one and I am willing to bet that Nunez will score that run in his next turn if he gets on base

  770. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Let’s see if Joba can hold them….

  771. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Got one back. Stay with it here. Keep working.

  772. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Swisher – LEAVE
    Granderson – LEAVE
    AROD – LEAVE

    All disappointments

  773. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I think Swisher did some good things last night. He might have even got an RBI, so I am assuming it was an RISP. Really don’t remember.

  774. BD (Boston Dave) October 8th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    O’s closer can’t be feeling too confident after last night. battered and threw a ton of pitches.

    Yanks are in good position to steal this one.

  775. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    We’ll probably still win this game, but if we don’t, the goal was to go home with no worse than one win. We did that.

  776. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    We really have to win tonight because the game 3 starter for them has a changeup and our lineup will poop themselves over that.

  777. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    You can’t win if you can’t hit with risp. Good teams take advantage of errors and those situations. They are so frustrating to watch. One after another they fail in those spots. The O’s hit bloops and get balls through the infield while the Yanks take big swings and hit fly balls.

  778. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:22 pm
    We’ll probably still win this game, but if we don’t, the goal was to go home with no worse than one win. We did that.

  779. GoldGlove9486 October 8th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    I just hate Miguel Gonzalez in game three. I wanted to win both of these.

  780. J2L October 8th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    Via ESPN, Swisher is 1-for-33 with RISP in his postseason career.

  781. JM October 8th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    YankeesWFAN Yanks have left 9 through 7 innings. Still in striking distance against a bullpen that was dented last night.

  782. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    come on guys, Andy is pitching a gem

  783. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    We’ll probably still win this game, but if we don’t, the goal was to go home with no worse than one win. We did that.

    ——————————-

    CC and Andy against 2 mediocre pitchers and your satisfied with a split especially after taking game 1?

  784. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Have a feeling Ibanez gets a clutch hit off the bench in this game.

  785. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    “We really have to win tonight because the game 3 starter for them has a changeup and our lineup will poop themselves over that.”

    lol…..it does seem like that CU’s are made of kryptonite for the Yanks

  786. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    The Yanks don’t have anyone to protect Cano. Tex ‘s timing is off, Swisher craps his pants in the play offs and Granderson is a strike out artist. Ibanez might be their best option.

  787. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    We’re only down by 1, Andy deserves to get the win for this…

  788. Cashmoney October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    why are ppl surprise that swisher can’t hit good pitching? 4 years is not long enough to observe that fact?

  789. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Yeah, I’m not going to lose sleep over miguel gonzalez. Nor should anyone else. Let’s get real here.

  790. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Runs, please.

  791. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Love me some Andy

  792. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Andy has more than done his job.

  793. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    1-2-3

  794. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    andy was so upset at giving up that run the last inning…

    what does he do? come out and shut them down with ease.

  795. Nick in SF October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    What a fantastic job by Andy. Not perfect, but still. Now let’s score some runs!

  796. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    And Pettitte has a great start. Time for the bats to put a couple of runs on the board.

  797. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    the infield is really chopper out there at SS….you can see the ball taking inconsistent bounces.

    Great inning by Andy…..lets score!

  798. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    7 inn 3 runs… cant get mad at that.

  799. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Andy Pettitte is a champ. Yanks should score 2 now because he really deserves this win (as does Chen)

  800. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    7 innings and 3 runs should win

  801. JM October 8th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Andy deserves some runs, boys….

  802. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Great Andy. Weak contact all night. Time to support the guy with some runs

  803. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    Of course we all know that the O’s are 75-0 when leading after 7 innings. There has to be a first time for everything!

  804. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    I wish Andy would yell at some of the hitters like he does at himself. He might scare a knock with RISP out of them.

  805. austinmac October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Great job Andy. How about some runs?

  806. jackamir October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Lets get offensive!!! Its our time!!!

  807. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    swish is 1-34 with RISP in PS, that makes arod look good.

  808. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Triple – yeah, I’m fine with a split coming home for 3 games. We have pitching advantages in game 3,4, and 5, as well.

    Sure, I’d love to go home up 2-0, but I guess I’m not a total pu$$y who goes apoplectic if its tied.

  809. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Kind of thinking Extra Innings tonight.

    Hopefully our rested pen plays large if so.

  810. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Great job by Pettitte tonight. If the offense did anything he should be winning.

  811. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    How we won 95 games with a middle of the order scared of breaking balls is truly amazing.

  812. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Tex message would be nice… Even a double

  813. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Matusz, 4.87 ERA, 1.56 whip.

  814. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Bum calf holds him to 1.

  815. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    damn…would’ve been nice if tex made it to 2nd there but it’s ok…

  816. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Teix! Lets get him around!!

  817. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Tex swinging the bat good….calf is costing us though….

  818. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Sure, I’d love to go home up 2-0, but I guess I’m not a total pu$$y who goes apoplectic if its tied.

  822. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Good thing Tex stayed at 1st base. AAA McLouth cut that ball off and he would have been out.

  823. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Atta boy Tex!!

    G Love,

    We won mostly thanks to our very good pitching

  824. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    we need more Martin magic!

  825. yankeefeminista October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Keep letting Teix bat righty, Buck.

  826. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    My dog got scared because I was yelling at my TV, “You stay at first! You stay at first!” to Tex.

  827. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Stay soft.

  828. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    You know? I would pinch run for Tex right now

  829. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    So scared.

  830. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    That was a sh-t call.

  831. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    that’s not a strike….

  832. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    What a load of crap.

  833. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Another it’s a strike, it’s not a strike strike.

  834. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    awful call

  835. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Angel Hernandez gets the Yanks again…Terrible call.

  836. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Pinch run

  837. BobbyJones October 8th, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    yea not sure why they haven’t pinch ran for Tex….

  844. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    I can’t believe that Girardi isn’t pinch running for Tex. He can’t run at all and i would love to get Gardner on the bases..

  845. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Granderson a day late on these swings.

  846. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    granderson is basically our adam dunn…

  847. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Grandy u killin us

  851. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Man, I really wish I knew what happened to the eye that he had last year.

  852. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Granderson never had a chance there……he’s just lost against lefties again.

  853. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    What a loser Granderson is.

    Against better pitchers, this guy is toast. We couldnt even capitalize on his one RISP hit earlier this game

  854. Dj October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Ouch, Grandy not doing so well…

  855. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Granderson the strike out king. He is absolutely terrible.

    Isn’t Gardner on the roster for situations like this? What is Girardi doing?!

  856. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    If you’re lefty with a curveball, you’ll strike out Grandy any time. It’s shocking how he just can’t do anything against it.

  857. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    nunez clearly went up there without a plan.

  858. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Why did Joe do nothing to try to create a run here?

  859. Lost October 8th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    why would Andy wanna come back and pitch for a bunch of bats that can’t ever get him a W unless he throws a shutout.

    so frustrating.

  860. qiantom October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    They really enjoy leaving men on base.

  861. yankeenate October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    If Granderson doesn’t consider himself a homerun hitter, then what sort of hitter is he?

  862. sunny615 October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Wow. Grandy is worse than krod.

  863. Cashmoney October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:34 pm
    yea not sure why they haven’t pinch ran for Tex….
    ——–
    cuz he is not the winning run i guess. and Jim Johnson is rh. Tex might come up again if Yanks get any kind of rally going blake.

  864. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Do you think it’s an indictment of this “offense” that Andy’s sitting on the bench after seven innings, three runs and looking like the world has come to an end….

  865. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Emjoy, O’s fans. You won’t see your team again this season

  866. Boston Jim October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    come on Nun, but we have top of order in the 9th

  867. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    It’s gone along with his I am not a homerun hitter

  868. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Nunez moved the leg. Must be a strike.

  869. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Just remember guys, hitting is not important

  870. the vaunted chris October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    i would trade granderson for a bag of diks.. and i don’t even like diks

  871. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Really bad job by the offense tonight. Even a decent hitting offense wins this game. It’s unreal how these guys fail in every single opportunity that they get.

  872. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    terrible

  873. Benny Blanco October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    top of the order for the top of the 9th..

  874. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Curtis Granderson should not be on this team come March. He needs to be dealt to the NL (so he can’t come back and hurt us) – and just that’s that. Ian Kennedy fell down to Earth this season, Jackson is good…we lost on the trade – get over it Cashman and move on.

  875. jacksquat October 8th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Girardi not pinch running because of the small chance of Tex’s spot coming up again.

  876. Pepitone October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    This Yankee offense is offensive.

  877. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Unforgivable not to pinch run Gardner for Teix there. Isn’t that why he is on the roster, for exact situations like that? No bunt, no nothing.

  878. EliasInNH October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Damn it. I don’t feel good about this game even though we have the top of the order up

  879. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Enjoy, not emjoy

  880. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    “cuz he is not the winning run i guess. and Jim Johnson is rh. Tex might come up again if Yanks get any kind of rally going blake.”

    I guess….but you gotta tie the game first. Wouldn’t have mattered anyway…..

  881. Carlo October 8th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    None of grandersons 43 home runs have brought me the joy to offset the anger that accompanies each of his 200 whiffs

  882. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Inventive complaining tonight..

  883. austinmac October 8th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Don’t worry. AROD is up next inning.

  884. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    I wouldn’t be puffing your chests out about easily beating Gonzalez in game 3. He will carve up Arod, Tex and Swisher like he’s Greg Maddux and not because he’s Greg Maddux, but because the three of them cannot hit a change up and haven’t for years.

    I hope we come back in the 9th. Andy deserves it. We’ve had chances to win this one all night.

  885. cofuzz October 8th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Whoever tried to say Teixeita needs to doI more is nuts.
    He’s hitting well and playing with a lame leg.
    He’s pulling a Kirk Gibson with more effort.

  886. Triple Short of a Cycle October 8th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    None of grandersons 43 home runs have brought me the joy to offset the anger that accompanies each of his 200 whiffs

    Why do you care? Aren’t you just giddy with a split?

  887. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Granderson should be sitted for a game or two… He is lost out there… Cano is too lonely on that lineup, so what we saw on the 7th is what we are going to see going forward, ther is no need to risk facing him

  888. yankeenate October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    It really says something about a hitter’s ability, or lack thereof, when you hit 43hrs and bat 8th

  889. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Get Pettite out of the game. Girardi is soooo clueless sometimes.

  890. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Russel was the best bat. No way he bunts in there

  891. RYUKINGDOM October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Japanese color analysist, a manager says Giradi should have pinch ran for Tex and try and steal a bag. He says he always waits too long.

  892. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Chris Davis…..unreal.

  893. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    What the hell, Joe? Why didn’t you just let Robertson start the inning? Some real head scratchers by Joe.

  894. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    “Another it’s a strike, it’s not a strike strike.”

    “awful call”

    “Angel Hernandez gets the Yanks again…Terrible call.”

    BUT

    “Really bad job by the offense tonight. Even a decent hitting offense wins this game. It’s unreal how these guys fail in every single opportunity that they get.”

    Really hard to have it both ways there, sportsfan.

  895. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Why is Gardner on the roster if he wasn’t used in that situation? Sometimes Girardi gets lost in the moment and is caught looking for a homerun. In the 8th inning the 1st baseman is standing behind the runner because everyone knows that Tex can’t move. Something is missing. That made absolutely no sense to not pinch run.

  896. the vaunted chris October 8th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    justifying a split is justifying losing.. and like Ron Washington always says, I’m not a loser

  897. BA October 8th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    With the lefty pitching it would have been real tough for Gardner to steal second. I assume that’s why Girardi didn’t pinch run.

  898. yankeenate October 8th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Tonight has been more of the offensive blueprint for this team this year. As long as they are hitting homeruns they are doing well, beefing up the categories. But in the postseason pitchers are more careful. 9th inning last night is more of a rarity for this team and innings 1-8 tonight, and 1-8 last night more the norm. Don’t forget how bad this offense has been for 16 out of 17 innings so far.

  899. TheStraw October 8th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    I am sick of seeing Andrea Mitchell’s ugly mug on my screen.

  900. NYY_Girl_Penny October 8th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Yanks have the best lineup in the game. we always come thru and we will win tonight too. we are too good of a team. we have the best hitters.

  901. vc 11 October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Would LAD take granderson for a middle reliever, a utility infielder, cash, and a bag of donuts?

  902. jmv October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Andy is in Hulk mode

  903. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Tex gets a pass in this series thus far. Hitting the ball.

  904. Boss Tony N October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Im not sure why Teixeira wasnt pinch run for

  905. djsunyc October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    if tex got to 2nd, he would’ve been pinch run for.

  906. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Girardi is obsessed with the lefty lefty matchup so of course Pettitte had to start the 8th inning. Davis continues to swing at the 1st pitch this series and get hits. It’s time to throw better 1st pitches to a nothing hitter.

  907. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Why didn’t they pinch run for Tex? (I can play too!)

  908. Brappy55 October 8th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Thought I’d get to see my 1st clinching game in person Wed :(

  909. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    a curveball!

    Seriously what do you expect when you have 5 bats on the lineup that are hitting .1xx and your 3,4,5 are absolutely worthless, especially in the clutch.

  920. Captain Clutch October 8th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Enough of this O’s love fest from the announcers. They are winning for the 1st time in 100 years. Let’s see them do it again next year without all of this lucky magic.

  921. yankeenate October 8th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    whats it really matter on whether Gardner pinch run for Tex or not. He didn’t even get advanced to 2nd by 3 straight batters. Wieters is a good catcher. However, I’m less impressed with Giardi this year. His decisions seem to backfire more.

  922. The Other Phil October 8th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Lots of hooks by DRob.

  923. RadioKev October 8th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    D-Rob was just saving all those curves for the post season.

  924. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 8th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Hey until the last out I always believe this team is capable of winning.

  925. blake October 8th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    bizzaro world where Robertson throws all curveballs.

  926. G. Love October 8th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

  927. luis October 8th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    +++++++

    Just bet Dave that Jeter and Ichiro Tie the game up for us.. he is how it plays out..

    1. Jeter gets an excuse me hit
    2. Ichiro lines one off the wall for an rbi double
    3. Arod strikes out
    4. Cano base hit scores Ichiro
    5. swisher strikes out
    6. Tex pops one sky high IF for out 3

    7. Soriano comes in and gets 1,2,3 and untucks.

  929. UnKnown October 8th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Come on Drob one more. And we’re just one swing away in the 9th.

  930. qiantom October 8th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

  981. Don Vito A. Bellamo October 8th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    No way in hell this team is going to move on.. the O’s will end their year. Frankly, they deserve it much more than the Yankees do. I just wish Andy and Ichiro get a ring.. the rest I can give a crap about. Yeah I said it.. this team sucks and doesn’t deserve to even be here.

  1000. BA October 9th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    He should be hitting 8th, really he should. It is ridiculous to keep rolling him out there at 3 or 4

    “Oh well. Get em on Wednesday.”

    Yes.

    Actually I think the player of the game award should go to Hernandez.

  1002. YankeesFanNYC October 9th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Why is A-Rod not at the bottom of the batting order????!!!!

  1003. luis October 9th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Well… We will get them on Wednesday… Have to recognize that I am a little disappointed… I was hoping for a sweep

  1004. Pepitone October 9th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    And there goes your 3 game sweep down the toilet

  1005. RYUKINGDOM October 9th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Like the Japanese announcer said, Giradi, too little too late…

  1006. Brappy55 October 9th, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Really felt we’d get a sweep. Thought we had this one. So incredibly disappointed

  1007. RYUKINGDOM October 9th, 2012 at 12:03 am

    George thanx for that extra long contract.

  1008. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 9th, 2012 at 12:04 am

    I was positive we’d get a sweep. So now we’ll go for the next-best thing. Taking 2 at home.

  1009. austinmac October 9th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    We all knew how that last at bat would go, didn’t we? I can’t imagine anyone thought he might hit one. What a poor performance by many. Great job Andy. You deserved better.

  1010. Cashmoney October 9th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Arod is putrid, meek, lost, old, cheater, usurper, wretched, soft, terrible, disgraceful Yankee player. somebody rip the uniform off this clown! man, i feel better. game 3 coming up.

  1011. NYY_Girl_Penny October 9th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Orioles are coming in fired up.. it will be as big of a choke as redsox comeback.

  1012. Cashmoney October 9th, 2012 at 12:08 am

    5 more years of this freaking loser, and please, no more freaking swisher next year.

  1013. NYY_Girl_Penny October 9th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Joe of course likes the bats approach and thinks alex hit the ball hard tonight..

    1
    arod should bat 8th and grandy 9th.. or forget it, bench grandy and get dickerson back.

  1014. Cashmoney October 9th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    it will be as big of a choke as redsox comeback.
    ====
    not even close if the Yanks lose the next two. but the, this offense will run into trouble against better pitching, this, a lot ppl have said it.

  1015. NYY_Girl_Penny October 9th, 2012 at 12:10 am

    10 left on base.

  1016. NYY_Girl_Penny October 9th, 2012 at 12:12 am

    ++++++

    AMEN !!!!!!!

    NY Fans should push Arod out of NY with his 30 mil salary clogging up our team.

    I dream that the Yanks clean house like Boston did, get rid of Swisher, Arod, Granderson, Martin and Tex !

  1017. NYY_Girl_Penny October 9th, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Buck is a million times better than Joe as managers !

    I dream that the Yanks clean house like Boston did, get rid of Swisher, Arod, Granderson, Martin and Tex !

    They had their chances – it’s on the offense. Hope Kuroda gives up no more than 2 runs and they find a way to score at 3. Tonight was unfortunately not an aberration, so the pressure is really going to be on the pitching to shut down Baltimore.

  1019. roselora October 9th, 2012 at 6:32 am

    Hoping that the dream comes true.
