"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Make it Happen

The Yanks have given us a wonderful season so far. It’s been as good as any in recent memory, really it has. Tonight gives the biggest game of the year, the first truly big game at the new Yankee Stadium. Here’s Cliff’s take, leftover from yesterday.

As you know, I’m generally a nervous fan, but after the Yanks lost Game Five I felt confident that they’d come back and close the Angels out in Game Six. Then there was an extra day off and now the butterflies have taken over and I’m Shook Bird like so:

I don’t remember the last time I felt this anxious.

I still say the Yanks find a way to win this series because I don’t want to fathom them not winning. As bad as things felt in 2004 I wasn’t surprised by it. The Red Sox were due. That they won in dramatic fashion made some kind of cosmic sense. I get that. But now, this is the Yankees’ time. Course the Angels won’t go out like chumps but it’s time for Good Andy and the Bombers to flex and be:

FRESH for 2009, you suckas!

Let’s Go Yan-Kees!

Here we go!!! Too long of a wait but we made it to Game 6, finally!!

FUCK EM UP FELLAS!

The Yankees need to jump all over Saunders early.

4 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:48 pm

I actually felt better this afternoon than yesterday afternoon, but the nerves are coming. I may watch this with the sound down.

5 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:49 pm

I really can't remember the last time I felt this nervous. I've been curled up on the couch, increasingly unable to distract myself. Got a huge pit in my stomach.

LOL

Me too, re: nerves.

7 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:52 pm

[5] I am in the same boat...I think part of the reason is because it's been a few years, but for me, I really don't want to spend years cringing at the thought of the some the managerial moves. I still wake up in the middle of the night wondering why Torre didn't bunt on Schilling or send the runners with Varitek catching Wakefield or bring in Mo after Gordon gave up the home run, etc.

8 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:52 pm

I promised my wife I would remain calm, cool, and collected. We'll see how long THAT lasts. All this angst has taken a lot out of me this weekend. Oy! GO YANKEES!

Cone wants to stick with Joba and Hughes.

Hughes, yes, with some trepidation, but I don't know what Joba can give us.

12 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:55 pm

I was actually productive last night, went to the mall and Penney's was having a sale on pants, about 33% off so I picked up three pair. Then home and the annual Halloween-tyme Sleepy Hollow viewing.

For some reason, I'm not that nervous tonight.

13 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:55 pm

[11] maybe coney gave them a pep talk in the pen

14 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:55 pm

[11] You have to stick with Hughes...but you need to protect him as much as possible. Still, other than Mariano, obviously, he remains the guy in whom I have the most confidence.

15 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:56 pm

[8] Heh heh.

16 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:56 pm

[11] Joba can give a collective ulcer.

17 jimcobain   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:57 pm

Every Yankee fan and myself included is nervous as all heck about the game. I hope that the crowd doesn't have that nervous energy and I REALLY hope the players are loose and ready to go. Me I am so tight I've put on CBS three times before finally getting FOX on... LOL.

18 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:58 pm

thank goodnes fox is getting to show the "ot" right now instead of starting alcs now

[14] i'm glad someone does - i have to admit i don't - i'm not sure if it is mechanical or trying to be too precise or what but have been nervous about him since the alds

19 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 7:58 pm

JUST START THE FUCKING GAME ALREADY!!

(I can't take it.)

20 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:01 pm

This is the kind of game that I wish I could wake up in the top of the 2nd inning, turn on the TV and see the Yankees are up 6-0.

21 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:01 pm

Isn't this supposed to be fun?

22 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:04 pm

I'm a mess

23 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:04 pm

[20] Don't say that. Remember that Oakland Game 5 (2000, was is?) when we did indeed have such a lead but Andy couldn't hold it? But we hung on to win anyway, courtesy, iirc, Stanton and Nelson. Or maybe just Stanton? Can't remember.

24 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:08 pm

I'm kinda hoping for a first inning A-Rod grand slam.

25 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:08 pm

I hate Mark Grace

26 jimcobain   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:09 pm

We're toast. Marc Grace just said Andy Pettitte is terrible in his TWO game 6 starts with his team leading 3-2. START THE FUCKING GAME!!!!

27 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:10 pm

31 Cliff Corcoran   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:12 pm

I'm not all that nervous, but if they lose tonight, I'll be in an awful mood tomorrow and a wreck during Game Seven.

32 joe   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:12 pm

I'm excited! I think you guys should be thankful you aren't Angels fans. I'd be more nervous if my team was down 2-3 and playing in Yankee stadium against Pettitte and C.C.

33 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:12 pm

I'm watching History Channel until 8:20. Just trying to protect what's left of my sanity. MLB is stupid to wait until 8:20 pm for the game. A 4 pm start would have made the most sense.

34 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:13 pm

[32] Perspective, merschmective.

37 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:15 pm

I actually don't envy you guys & gals having to stay up late for the inevitable 4.5 hour game.

38 Paul   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:16 pm

I'm finding bliss with the thought that this really has been a great season. I've grown to love this team again everything about them, really.

If it helps, the MLB network has a better pre-game and now they're showing highlights from 1998.

39 Paul   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:16 pm

But I'm nervous as fuck right now too.

I fucking LOVE baseball!

I am strangely calm.

43 Eirias   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:18 pm

Fellow Yankees fans, I heard somewhere that it is, indeed, on. Is there any truth to this rumor?

44 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:18 pm

[42] Baseball weather or baseball ether?

Either way, calm.

45 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:18 pm

[23] I remember that as if it was yesterday. Tino had the huge hit and they went up 6-0, but really did have to hold on for dear life.

46 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:19 pm

49 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:20 pm

[23, 45] big part of that game was Terrence Long losing a ball in the sun in that first inning...also Justice with a big insurace homer late

50 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:21 pm

Great to see more empty seats at the biggest game of the year,..

74 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:25 pm

This post season is neck and neck with 1996 for the most anxious. The least anxious was 1999. For whatever reason, I felt supremely confident throughout that post season.

83 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:27 pm

[74] perhaps because they were 10 times better than any other team on the field. or because they only lost 1 game and it was against pedro.
but i think you're forgetting about 2001.

84 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:27 pm

[81] Let's strike his name for the record...I really hate it when the player looks more nervous than I am (said with a side glance at Nick Swisher).

87 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:28 pm

[74] 11-1 will do that to ya.

But I agree, that always goes down as kinda the "forgotten championship" for me. Not that I have overlooked it, but '96 was the first...'98 was the 125 wins...'00 was the subway series. '99 was just a really good solid team that beat 3 teams they were way better than.

In all honesty the biggest thrills of that postseason, just purely as a baseball fan, was the Mets/Braves NLCS

88 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:28 pm

[82] This is the best I've felt in literally 3 weeks, to the day. Dunno if it was the flu or what.

Now let's get some runs.

89 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:29 pm

[82] just come back from glasgow - you'll get to see it

90 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:29 pm

[83] Forgetting about 2001 in what way? The 1998 team was great too, but there was the pressure of not letting the 114 win season go to waste. 1999 was not only a great team, but it almost seemed like house money.

91 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:29 pm

All right, here we go, Derek.

92 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:29 pm

"I still say the Yanks find a way to win this series because I don’t want to fathom them not winning."
------------------------------
This is soooo true and what makes being a Yankees fan so tough.
We have no choice. Just one option. We just can't lose.
It's like an innocent person being tried in court.
You can't win because even if you do win...
You just break even.

HOSS!

93 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:30 pm

[87] I always felt that the '99 team was better on paper than the '98 team. I knew they wouldn't win more games, but that was a real, real deep team in '99.

94 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:30 pm

I'd love some early runs!

95 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:30 pm

[87] i actually enjoyed 99 more than 98. nothing can top 96, but that 99 team was insanely good. they didn't win as many games as the year before, but i actually thought they were better. plus i was at the chad curtis game (game 3 of the world series).

96 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:30 pm

97 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:31 pm

[93] Also, the Indians team they faced seemed more dangerous than any of their 1999 opponents.

103 joejoejoe   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:32 pm

Pettitte's postseason #s are amazingly like his career numbers.

Career - .629 WP, 3.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP
Postseason - .625 WP, 3.90 ERA, 1.33 WHIP

Secondary #s like HR/9, SO/9, BB/9 are also close. Pettitte's got a belly full of guts in the postseason. My opinion is those guts perform similar to his April to September guts.

104 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:32 pm

Hey guys, we're not here to talk about the past..2009 trumps the 99 team! :)

[106] I think with 9/11 and the team coming off 3 straight, there was a lot less edge in 2001. I can also still look back on that outcome of that series without regret. I kind of look at it is the series the Yankees won 3 games to 4. The two walkoffs almost trumped winning the whole thing in terms of memories made.

129 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:37 pm

So much for the early lead...that was a pretty bad AB by Matsui. I wonder how wise it is to allow Saunders to face three straight righties like that. Sometimes throwing a lefty into mix can make things more difficult.

That was an early missed opportunity...not the best way to calm the nerves.

130 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:38 pm

[115] i was pretty damn nervous. i just remember having to pee like every half inning in those extra inning games.

[130] The worst game in terms of nerves was game 7 of the 2003 ALCS. I think I wanted that one as bad as any other. That game was so intense that during it I couldn't imagine how I'd make it through it. If they don't win tonight, I think tomorrow will be like that.

[134] good point, that game was tense as hell. but i also don't remember ever being so happy from one baseball game.

153 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:42 pm

[150] Seriously..never want to hear about the Angels "playing the right way" again..they've been Little League awful on the bases this series

154 randym77   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:42 pm

I found 2001 more crushing than any other year.

There were so many people rooting for us that year that usually rooted against the Yankees. People who had moved to NY years before but hated the Yanks changed their minds and accepted their status as New Yorkers that year. Plus it was such a close series.

158 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:43 pm

[152] Yep...when it was over, it was like surviving a near death experience.

It's funny....three of my top moments came in seasons in which they didn't win the World Series (the two 2001 WS walkoffs and the Boone game).

159 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:44 pm

2 out walk. D'oh!! C'mon, Andy. One more out.

160 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:44 pm

[154] i agree that it was the most crushing, but mostly because it was mo on the mound and he threw the ball away. and because it seemed inevitable (and only fair) that they'd win after the brosius hr.

161 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:44 pm

[156] Kendrick kills the Yankees and has been excellent since the All Star Break, especially against lefties.

162 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:44 pm

[158] I was in London that year, it was about 5am when Boone hit that homer..I was beyond delirious, thought i was dreaming!

Please concentrate here Andy.

164 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:45 pm

2001 was tough because we had a much better team. They had 2 aces, a super juiced OFer and who? That series really showed how important pitching is in the PS, and the D-Backs had little else.

165 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 8:45 pm

night of the Boone game I was in my dorm room, my roomate (dyed in the wool Sox fan from northern CT) was watching the game at our next door neighbor's place.

when Boone went deep we all ran over to the wall and started pounding on it like we were gonna break the thing down. oh memories.

Missed it by that much. We're getting closer on Saunders.

Good news on Philips.

Can the Yankees get one positive sign!?

324 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:24 pm

Why give A-Rod the take sign on 3-0? In this case, a walk is NOT as good as a hit..

Oh well, lots of time, Saunders is toast!

339 randym77   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:28 pm

I feel like the Yanks have actually played better tonight than the Halos. They've just been unlucky, and it hasn't translated into runs.

340 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:28 pm

HI Diane.

341 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:29 pm

[339] That's been the case all series...which is why it is very disturbing that this series is 3-2 and possibly headed toward game 7. Eventually, the Angels will play better.

342 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:29 pm

[336] I wish I knew where it was!

Unfortunately, I have a big presentation tomorrow, so I have to put together the lecture and ppt tonight, in between getting frustrated at the lack of base hits with two outs.

363 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:32 pm

I will have a hard time accepting that Andy will lose on one hiccup inning. Score Truck should arrive this inning, and I predict Swisher will be at the wheel.

369 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:33 pm

[357] I don't think he sounded tight at all, I was honestly pretty struck by how confident he sounded.

if anything Buck sounded tight

370 thelarmis   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:34 pm

374 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:34 pm

[369] Saying that the team was excited to be playing game 6 instead of preparing for the World Series sounded very forced.

375 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:35 pm

Crowd seems a bit subdued..have to say the fans in Philly were impressive with all the noise from first pitch on.

Cmon Score Truck!!

Look low and away, Robbie.

377 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:36 pm

418 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:40 pm

The Yankees are a big inning offense...giving away an out mitigates against that happening. Girardi simply doesn't know what kind of team he has.

427 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:41 pm

[418] but you're worried about how tight they are down a run. shouldn't they get that first run on the board?

428 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:41 pm

Well, that wasn't hit swing.

429 Shaun P.   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:41 pm

[380] weeping, you'll appreciate this. My daughter (who's almost 4) watched the top half of the first with me. I used the frame-by-frame on my TiVo to show her Andy's curveball, because she asked me why the ball moved. She picked it up right away, and the next time he threw one, she said, that was his curve, wasn't it daddy? =)

You know, I do not mind the bunt by Melky there. I'm strangely confident in that move.

I would like Jeter to single in both runs right now, though.

430 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:41 pm

[421] problem is there is a secret compartment in the score truck in the glove compartment

431 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

Don't force it Jeter (another reason you don't bunt).

432 Diane Firstman   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

Truckin .... got those hits cashed in ...

433 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

434 Bobtaco   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

[418] I'm with you William, but I couldn't take another DP...

435 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

[427] No...because trying to squeeze across one run will lead to forcing things.

436 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

[423] Then why don't we ever steal or hit and run?

437 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:42 pm

Jeter is not comfortable up there.

438 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:43 pm

515 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:50 pm

[511] Like bunts, Rally Killers are occasionally the correct play.

516 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:50 pm

Better than a double steal.

So close...

560 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

wow i think that was inside but very close, especially for dale scott

561 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Oooooh!!!

Beautiful, Alex.

Looked like a good pitch to me.

562 NYYfan22   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Take that, Mike Scociciaia!

563 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Good Job Alex.

I have no idea where that missed though

564 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

I'll take it... but Mr. DP up.

565 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Close pitch...A-Rod got the call. That looked good, gameday people?

566 thelarmis   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

[550] : )

i like that, too!

keep 'em comin' in Po !!!

567 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

WOW...that was close, but even with the bases loaded, he wouldn't grove it.

568 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Leave him in!

569 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:54 pm

Hey Scioscia. EFF YOU!

570 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:55 pm

[562] Well, he walked A-Rod again.

571 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:55 pm

That last pitch was VERY VERY close. Did we catch a break?

572 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:55 pm

[560] yeah - it was a strike for scott

573 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:55 pm

buh-bye Joe..nice knowind ya!
Saunders did not retire a batter that inning..please, it was NOT a "gutsy" performance!

574 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:55 pm

I think it was a touch inside, pretty tough call against the pitcher I guess.

575 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:56 pm

[565] Arod got the call, but IF Posada can't plate another run, there's a decent chance the Angels would have been better off not having Saunders make that 3-1 pitch.

576 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:56 pm

[565] gameday actually showing it a bit inside

577 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:56 pm

580 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:56 pm

Po is no Molina, but I think he's gonna keep the Score Truck rolling here.

581 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:57 pm

[565] gameday has it on the line. on the replay it looked pretty good.

582 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:57 pm

[575] Should be "that 3-2 pitch".

583 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:57 pm

[575] Bite your tongue. ; )

584 felix holt   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:57 pm

[580] I hope so.

585 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:57 pm

[571] Not as blatant as that breaking pitch to Damon, but it was close. A tad inside, but borderline.

589 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:58 pm

Where it was caught it was a ball. But when it crossed the front of the plate it was most definitely a strike.

590 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:58 pm

good pitch there.

591 Diane Firstman   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:58 pm

592 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:58 pm

that's the 2nd time the announcers watched their own strike zone show that the right call was made only to ignore it and side with scioscia

FUUUUUUUUCCCKKKKK !!!!!!!!!!!!!

606 Shaun P.   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:59 pm

I know there are more lefties due up, but this is very silly by Scioscia. Posada's always hit lefties well, and Matsui does too. I think this is because he trusts no one else in his bullpen, and he won't bring in any of the starters in the middle of an inning.

Good for our boys. Nice to see them have no bullpen for a change. =)

GOD DAMMIT! On a happy note, did you say A-Rod try to break it up?! Wow. He is not going to let us lose.

607 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:59 pm

Balls!

608 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:59 pm

all in all though, not bad to take a 2 run lead and get into their shitty bullpen in the 4th

609 42yrOldRookie   ~  Oct 25, 2009 9:59 pm

snoop wasn't thriled abou that.

610 Bobtaco   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

[575] Good call... depressing though...

611 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

Posada has been a big goat in this series...that swing is beyond bad. Now, I really wish the ump would have called that 3-1 pitch a strike.

612 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

ok well accentuate the positive

- knocked out the starter in the 4th is good

- gave Andy a lead

-ummm...Swish looks happy again?

613 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

Posada really stinks in the playoffs compared to his career numbers.

614 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

That's OK...not great, but OK. Now Andy needs to shut them down after the long half-inning. The bats will break this open next inning or two.

615 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:00 pm

Ok, come on, Andy, it's all on you.

You can do it, my man.

damn it!!!

619 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:02 pm

[617] I'd take my chances with Arod...the Yankees needed to get more than 3 runs there...that was a chance to really put this game out of reach.

620 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:02 pm

621 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:03 pm

660 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:07 pm

[643] The numbers are fine, but he has had maddening moments: calling the fastball to Vlad, not scoring on a 2B from 2B, the crazy run down, and now having an awful swing against Oliver with a 2-1 count and the bases loaded.

665 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:08 pm

[647] He roots for the underdog, which is like most partial fans. He isn't a Yankee-hater.

666 Shaun P.   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:08 pm

[647] He hates baseball, finds it very boring. I KNOW he said that, either during an interview, or maybe it was on his (short-lived?) HBO show?

I've always muted his football broadcasts, because I think he's even worse there - maybe that gets him up?

667 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:08 pm

[660] no, he called for an eye-level fastball to vlad, which would have been great. hughes missed by 2 feet.

668 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:09 pm

[647] [665] Along those lines, the FOX broadcast was practically wearing pompoms for the Yankees and Torre against the Braves in 1996.

[666] It's obvious he feels he's above the whole thing. I didn't know his HBO show was canceled- that's good to know!

Matsui has always frustrated me, he looks great one at bat and then dog shit the next. I love him, but man.

every at bat from Matsui seems the same. First pitch ground out

683 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:10 pm

[667] Had Hughes located his fastball at any point in the inning, I could understand him expecting that he could do it in that spot. Unfortunately, the only command he had was with the curve.

684 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:10 pm

That pitch to Posada was PHAT! He was just late on it with a bad swing. Po should have creamed it.

685 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:11 pm

That was the same pitch that walked Alex. Stupid umps.

692 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

[668] that's not how i remember it. i thought buck seemed on the verge of tears at the end, emotionlessly recapping the dramatic series.

693 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

The worst thing than hearing McCarver and Buck harp on this double play is knowing that they are absolutely right.

694 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

a collosaal assfuck?
Is there a goat involved in this?

695 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

[689] Umps always give more on the outside than on the inside of the plate. It's not right, but it's not surprising.

696 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

These announcers are really enthused by Oliver. I mean, he's doing his job but they're really enthused.

697 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:12 pm

Are they touching themselves while they are repeatedly saying double play? Man.

Darren Oliver, ace relief pitcher.

705 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:13 pm

[683] that's true in retrospect, but at the time he had only thrown something like 6 pitches.

706 ms october   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:13 pm

[694] nope - goats don't like him

one thing buck does okay though is realize a ball is foul off the bat - sterling and kay have yet to master that

707 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:14 pm

[705] I don't think you can overlook how badly Hughes was missing with the fastball.

708 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:14 pm

Oliver probably is their best bullpen guy to be fair.

709 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:15 pm

[705] Every fastball to Hunter was no where the zone...unless they were pitching around him (which could be true), Posada should have figured out that he wasn't going to hit his spot with the fastball.

710 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:15 pm

Please send Choad back to the bench asap, Andy.

711 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:15 pm

[708] Might he be done after 14 pitches?

712 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:15 pm

713 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:15 pm

Hughes fucked up...or Posada fucked up...or both did...and surely Girardi also fucked up. Whatever. That game is done and gone.

Let's go Andy, keep shutting them down.

714 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:16 pm

716 51cq24   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:16 pm

[707] [709] you might be right, but i think you're exaggerating a bit. part of what convinced me his fastball command was so off was that pitch. prior to that i thought he was just nervous or rusty.

717 OldYanksFan   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:16 pm

At least when Sutcliffe sounds drunk, he is drunk.

NO JOBA NEXT INNING.

866 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:32 pm

ALL RIGHT!!!

Now, I would let Andy start the seventh. Joba does not sniff this game until extra innings. I go to Robertson or Hughes, then Mo--any one of them for more than an inning if need be.

ya gotta send Andy back out for the 7th. 91 pitches, lower half of the order.

i don't wanna see Joba tonight...

879 RagingTartabull   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:33 pm

seriously, as an Italian-American I find the constant whoring of Olive Garden in my living room to be deeply offensive

880 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:33 pm

We need at least two more runs here.

881 williamnyy23   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:33 pm

I am confident with Andy starting the 7th and would have him carry the ball right to Mariano (maybe try to steal one out from Hughes, but not if men are on base)., regardless of the inning. Mariano can get 2+ innings.

882 monkeypants   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

[865] In my mind’s eye, in real time, I saw that careening off Andy’s glove into centerfield. Oh God.

My vision was worse--that it ticked off his glove just out of reach on the IF, allowing one run to score and extending the inning for another excruciating AB with infuriating outcome.

Thank you, God, for preserving me from that.

883 JeremyM   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

I'll say this, I trust Andy in the 7th a hell of a lot more than Burnett. I respect AJ Burnett, I'll do business with AJ Burnett, but I don't trust AJ Burnett.

884 joe   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

I wouldn't mind seeing Pettitte, only because he wasn't hit hard last inning.

885 Shaun P.   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

[859] And hopefully a few more times after tonight, starting on Wednesday. =)

Pettitte comes back, but he goes batter by batter. First guy who gets on, pull him. Well, unless its a lefty due up I guess.

886 Just Fair   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

Andy's got to start the 7th.

887 Mattpat11   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

[870] He has to

888 rbj   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

889 Bobtaco   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:34 pm

897 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Oct 25, 2009 10:35 pm

[885] I don't know. If you have to go to Hughes, you don't want it to be with runners on.
