Let's go!

2 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:24 pm

Yes, A-Rod!

3 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:27 pm

Nice to see Alex crush and Robbie rip. Lay it on thick tonight, boys. Screw Millwood.

4 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:30 pm

You're a fucking disgrace, Austin. Jeebus.

5 Diane Firstman   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:34 pm

if frankie goes yard here

6 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:35 pm

We better get more than one run out of this inning, or else.

7 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:40 pm

What a waste. : (

8 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 7:46 pm

Ah, Aj He'll celebrate his first 1,2,3 1st inning since little league by walking the lead off man in the 2nd. Bollocks!

9 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:04 pm

Hey, isn't that cheating?

10 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:13 pm

Anyone know why AJ has a shiner?

11 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:20 pm

Kevin Millwood is simply too good.

12 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:27 pm

This is wonderful..

13 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:28 pm

[11] No, at lest 1/3 of the lineup simply sucks...

14 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:28 pm

sigh.

15 Diane Firstman   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:29 pm

Jones would look good in a Yankee uni come 2014

16 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:32 pm

OMFG! Really, Cervelli? Really?

17 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:32 pm

[13] And everyone past CC is... well... let's not get into that now...

18 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:36 pm

Wow, Gameday is really on some heavy drugs or this ump has the weirdest strike zone in baseball...

19 underdog   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:37 pm

I posted some Mattingly Thoughts from Dodger perspective if anyone cares, in that thread below. Didn't want to interrupt your game thread. :-) G'luck!

20 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:37 pm

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Kevin fu#%##@%@%@Ing Millwood for Mo's sake!

21 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:40 pm

[19] Thanks, man! Always good to see you.

22 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:46 pm

Oh where, oh where has my score truck gone?
Oh where, oh where can it be?
With it's scoring cut short and it's slumping so long.
Oh where, oh where can it be?

23 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:51 pm

[22] LOL. Maybe it broke down on the Major Deegan Expressway, and when the drive went for help, it got stripped.

24 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:53 pm

The Yankees really ARE a good hitting team.
They only have trouble with 2 types of pitchers.

25 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:56 pm

Gotta hand it to him, they have been finding all kinds of new ways to infuriate me over the last week. Kevin Millwood?!?!

26 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 8:57 pm

[24] What's that, left-handers and right-handers? ;)

27 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:08 pm

[24] Urp's and journeymen slobs who shit the bed vs. everyone else but the Yanks.
89 mph. He's blowing it by them. ugh.

28 Raf   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:08 pm

[22] Swept up in the tornado, perhaps

29 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:10 pm

Credit where it's due, I can't complain about A.J. tonight.

The hitters however. . .

30 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:10 pm

#48 for Bautista.

Just stat-padding, since the Jays already had an 8-2 lead. Now 10-2.

John Lackey makes me appreciate AJ.

Now, HIT.

31 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:11 pm

I don't think Jeter's going to get many calls his way the last few games. Even if that WAS strike 3.

32 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:11 pm

Did Jeter just strike out looking on three 88 mph pitches?

33 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:12 pm

[32] Welcome to The Suck.....

34 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:13 pm

Come on Teix.

35 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:15 pm

Shoot me.

36 Raf   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:16 pm

[32] with 2 of them out of the zone

37 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:18 pm

[36] Thanks, it's hard for me to tell as Gamecenter has a really bad zone this year. It used to be the most accurate computer version from what I could tell but I'm lost now.

38 randym77   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:19 pm

Well, I'm glad Bobby Abreu is no long patrolling right field. His defense has really fallen off a cliff.

39 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:19 pm

[26] BINGO!

40 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:21 pm

Dave Eliand just bowed his head and wiped his face in exaspertion. That's 2 hits batsman to lead off and inning on 0-2 counts and a lead off walk. Am I missing any?

41 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:22 pm

That was sharp at least.

42 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:23 pm

Yup.

43 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:24 pm

Robert Andino?

44 randym77   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:24 pm

Good thing we had that DP.

45 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:26 pm

First HR of the season? Really, AJ?

46 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:27 pm

Does it really even matter? Does anyone see them scoring again, other than A-Rod or Cano getting a hold of one?

47 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:29 pm

[46] Oh, I think they'll score.
They hit Millwood for several innings, the balls just didn't drop.

48 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:31 pm

Remember the 13 and 17 month of Septermber of 2000? That looks like a pipe dream at this rate. Oy!

49 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:31 pm

Robbie!

50 Raf   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:33 pm

Weird zone this umpire has, can't believe that 1st pitch to Berkman was a strike

51 randym77   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:35 pm

Berkman has been quite serviceable since getting off the DL.

52 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:36 pm

Okay, Brett, hit a grounder right at someone. We need the run.

53 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:37 pm

Cito Gaston is now the only manager in the AL East I don't want the score truck to run over.

54 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:38 pm

[52] There's two outs...

55 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:39 pm

Damn. Maybe I shouldn't have said [52] that.

56 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:39 pm

[54] Yes. But that's one of Brett's main ways of getting base hits. Just didn't work this time.

57 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:40 pm

Personally, I wouldn't let Gardner stop me from getting Crawford, but that's probably just me.

58 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:40 pm

[57] Why is that? I assume you know the reasons on the other side.

59 rbj   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:42 pm

I think it's time we put the Yankee's offense on the milk carton.

60 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:44 pm

[58] I'm probably just being too strongly influenced by this slump he has been in for over a month or so. I've just never really warmed to him for whatever reason.

61 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:45 pm

Wow,, Tim Wakefield tried very hard to give Bautista #49. He threw three knucklers out of the zone, then came back with a 72mph "fast"ball! Jose drilled it to the CF wall.

62 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:53 pm

3-3 Rays in the 8th. Not much faith in the Angels.

63 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:56 pm

Nice ab, Jorge!

64 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:56 pm

Wow. Good job, JP.

65 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:57 pm

Wow, nice job Jorge.

[62] Too bad they're not the "Devil" Rays anymore. These games just don't have that epic, biblical quality to them any longer.

66 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:57 pm

[62] Ye of little faith! Brandon Wood homers for the lead.

67 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:57 pm

Is Posada really still on the bases? No pinch runner?

68 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:58 pm

Yup... swing at 2 balls and take strike 3 (which was really strike 1).

69 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:59 pm

I thought Jeter was getting on track too....

70 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 9:59 pm

Did Kevin Long tell Jeter to try hitting with his left eye closed?

71 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:00 pm

This little piggie needs to good wee-wee-wee all the way home.
[66] Sweet.

72 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:00 pm

Would you guys think I was being facetious if I told you I'd much rather play Nunez then Jeter? At least Nunez might walk. Jeter simply has no clue. Girardi must sit him down.

73 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:00 pm

[68] Baseball is hard.

74 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:01 pm

Teix and his f'ing pop-ups.

75 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:02 pm

[72] Did you actually watch the game?
Jeter had a single and in the second inning he missed a homer by about 2 degrees, and then smoked a line drive but straight to the 3rd baseman.

76 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:02 pm

I don't think I've seen so many 89 mph fastballs missed.

77 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:03 pm

Not that one.

78 Raf   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

A-ROD!

79 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

Well.... somebody has earned a sleepover!

80 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

KaBOOOOOOM.

81 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

PHEW

82 randym77   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

Instant Yankees Classic

(If they hold on)

83 JeremyM   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:04 pm

[75] Good to hear, I'm at the mercy of your descriptions.

All right A-Rod!!!!

84 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:05 pm

Arod to Baltimore: "DROP DEAD!"

85 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:05 pm

The Alex Show. The rest of these humps need to get their shit together. WOW!

86 Raf   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:05 pm

Rodriguez was lucky he wasn't called out on the pitch prior.

87 Chyll Will   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:05 pm

It's so nice to be able to expect that from Alex... :)

88 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:06 pm

It always comes down to our True Yankee™

89 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:07 pm

Love the no-doubters from Alex. It's been a while since we've seen him give the look into the dugout like that. Big, big hit.

90 BuckFoston   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:07 pm

Arod back in the groove, just in time for the pennant run and the post-season. I feel better, how bout you?

91 Just Fair   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:08 pm

[82] I know I wouldn't sit through the first 3 hours of this game ever again.

92 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:09 pm

[75] Yes... it his last 100 AB, Jeter has hit the ball hard 15 times, and managed some hits. But he is lost. He is pressing HARD.... swinging at balls and taking strikes. And not just that last AB, but for 2 months.

I think right now, Nunez can get on base more.
Jeter has a .318 OBP in August, and less then .310 in September.

I say sit him the next 2 days.
Maybe it will clear his head a bit.
What's to lose?

93 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:13 pm

Sterling sez we're gonna get hot now. YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WITH BASEBALL

94 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:13 pm

[89] Hank, good writeup on game 3 Yanks Rays, but I think you missed a big story line

95 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:14 pm

[92] I think you're mistaken. If he hits screaming line drives, hard singles up the middle, and blasts down the third base line, I really don't give a shit whether he's pressing or not.

On the other hand, I think he definitely should get a day off. Not because Nunez is better, but because Jeter needs it.

96 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:17 pm

[94] Which story line?

97 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:17 pm

Rays lose.

98 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:18 pm

Huge win. Welcome back to first place.

99 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:18 pm

And thanks be to Mo.

100 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:18 pm

[98] Why, thank you, Hank. And so good of you to invite us.

All Rise.
This is some goddamn rollercoaster that were going to be on for a few more weeks. Exhale.......

102 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:20 pm

[96] Soriano pitching on 4 days rest in the 9th for the first time this year. I don't think that was insignificant -- Maddon went for the throat.

103 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:20 pm

By the way the Rays lost, the Sox lost, and the Yanks are in first place.

104 Hank Waddles   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:25 pm

Also, Twins losing.

105 Matt Blankman   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:26 pm

Man, #608 was a big knock, huh?

106 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:28 pm

[96] please don't take offense to that, I just remember thinking it was big during the game. I knew he'd pitched the last two nights. I checked his game log and, sure enough, he'd pitched in Toronto that Sunday. BUT in those three games he had a total of 28 pitches, IIRC; however, he still had to warm up, etc. I just thought it was remarkable that he pitched for the 4th day and I thought we were going to get him

And we almost did. He threw 24 pitches total and Jeter, Teix and Cano all had decent AB's before Arod K'd. I guess the story line is that Girardi wouldn't do that but Maddon would. Personally I think Maddon's an idiot and Sori will get hurt; and he'll regret it.

107 cult of basebaal   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:28 pm

Thank you Alex ... that one was HUGE.

(we won't mention the 3rd strike you got away with taking on the pitch before)

108 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:30 pm

[105] wasn't it 607?

109 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:33 pm

Yo, Evil E., don't say "the Sox lost" until they've actually lost. It's very bad luck.

110 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:34 pm

[109] you're right, I was mistaken and thought it was over.

111 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:39 pm

Argh, see, E.E., now Yamaico Navarro, batting .074 (seriously), drives in a run, and Dan Nava doubles in Navarro. The tying run comes to the plate in the person of Victor Martinez. With Beltre and Papi to follow, if necessary. Did Scott Downs suck when we played the Jays?

112 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:40 pm

V-Mart gets an 86 mph fastball straight down the pipe and pops it up. NOW they've lost.

113 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:43 pm

[112] well that's baseball, you just can't figure it.

114 Evil Empire   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:45 pm

I know probably everyone's run off, but i have a question. Looking at Earl Weaver, he just kind of looks silly in his uniform. Where did the tradition of managers wearing uniforms in baseball start? Can you imagine a football or basketball coach doing that?

115 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:46 pm

Nice win. Arod is hard to love, but he's the only one you want up in that situation. This season has been a brutal one to watch, yet the Yankees still have the best record in the MLB.

Here's to Alex:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BypDMhCSt7M

116 OldYanksFan   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:49 pm

Magic number to clinch the PS is NINE.
ARod one away from Sosa (at 609).
Hopes he passes him this year.

117 RIYank   ~  Sep 17, 2010 10:50 pm

[114] I'm pretty sure the tradition is due to the fact that early managers were often players, too.

Connie Mack wore a suit when he managed.

118 Matt Blankman   ~  Sep 17, 2010 11:01 pm

[108] He was at 606 before the game, so that would have been 607 and 608 tonight.
