Get two for Lester in the top, lets see how many he gives back in the bottom.
   2. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: October 02, 2012 at 07:25 PM (#4251690)
Is any hitter in MLB other than Teixeira out right there?
   3. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 07:26 PM (#4251693)
Lets go PawSox!
   4. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 07:28 PM (#4251694)
Teixeira is approaching Molina levels of speed isn't he?
   5. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 07:30 PM (#4251697)
Really would like to see Salty homer tonight or tomorrow. It'd be great to see him tie Fisk for the club single season record.
   6. TVerik, the gum-snappin' hairdresser Posted: October 02, 2012 at 07:30 PM (#4251698)
When he hit that, I thought "even he will beat the DP". Obviously I was wrong.
   7. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 08:02 PM (#4251723)
Tex is having a rough night. Eventually all these base runners are going to bite Lester in the ass.
   8. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 08:58 PM (#4251772)
Man these one run games are not good for the blood pressure...
   9. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:31 PM (#4251801)
I give the Yankees credit. It is never easy to come up small game-after-game, but God bless them, they manage it.
   10. Bitter Calculus Instructor Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:45 PM (#4251818)
This whole getting lots of hits without scoring runs thing is really getting old.
   11. Esoteric Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:47 PM (#4251820)
Given that it would be amazing and insane and ridiculously dramatic and near-storybook for the Yanks and the O's to go into the last game of the season tied for first place after the former lose and the latter (again!) win 1-run games...I declare now that it will not happen. Yanks will come back and rally in the bottom of the 9th.
   12. Esoteric Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:49 PM (#4251823)
When I said it wouldn't be a one-run game this isn't how I envisioned it coming true.
   13. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:51 PM (#4251826)
Serious question: Who is the Red Sox closer?

Has he pitched yet this year?
   14. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:56 PM (#4251830)
I think Bailey is closing these days.

I don't know if Soriano is my least favorite Yankee ever--Pavano, Jaret Wright, Farnsworth and Tony Womack are all high on that list--but he's a contender. So I suppose it figures he would be a crucial part of my least favorite Yankee team ever. And of course, come up small in a big moment. They may not be great, but they are consistent.
   15. Esoteric Posted: October 02, 2012 at 09:58 PM (#4251833)
Still think the Red Sox will probably lose this game.
   16. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:00 PM (#4251835)
F U Red Sox
   17. Esoteric Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:00 PM (#4251836)
And there you go.
   18. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:00 PM (#4251837)
Raul ####### Ibanez? ####### seriously? Bailey ####### sucks.
   19. My name is Votto, and I love to get blotto Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:00 PM (#4251838)
Raul Ibanez, Yankee hero
   20. My name is Votto, and I love to get blotto Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:01 PM (#4251842)
Let's see if Ichiro wants to hit a homerun here...
   21. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:01 PM (#4251843)
Boy I can't wait to see what Ben Cherington can do with a second off season.
   22. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:02 PM (#4251844)
I'm getting more and more happy that we traded Reddick for a shitty reliever.
   23. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:02 PM (#4251846)
If Jeter doesn't homer I will be shocked.
   24. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:04 PM (#4251848)
The youngest player to get an XBH this inning is 46.
   25. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:05 PM (#4251850)
Walk Swisher to pitch to Alex Rodriguez? Not a huge fan of this move.
   26. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:06 PM (#4251851)
Bailey has nothing.
   27. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:07 PM (#4251852)
If A-Rod hits into a DP, the boo's are going to make the post-HR cheers sound quiet
   28. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:09 PM (#4251856)
What the #### is Bobby waiting for?

This guy is terrible.
   29. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4251859)
I get that closers are overrated but Aceves and Bailey are a combined 31 of 42 in save situations....Papelbon also has 42 save chances and 38 saves.
   30. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:12 PM (#4251862)
What kills me is early in the year Bobby would let relievers go multiple innings but for some reason Tazawa only gets one inning.
   31. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:12 PM (#4251864)
I don't think we've lost a game on a balk yet this year.
   32. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:13 PM (#4251865)
I get that closers are overrated but Aceves and Bailey are a combined 31 of 42 in save situations....Papelbon also has 42 save chances and 38 saves.
I can see how that's insanely frustrating as a fan, but doesn't that just reaffirm the overrated factor? Would Papelbon have done anything to make Boston a contender? Probably not, but he would have cost significantly more than Aceves and Bailey.
   33. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:15 PM (#4251867)
Teixeira's repeated choking will take a little sting off this one when the Yankees win.
   34. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:15 PM (#4251868)
Adding to #32, granted Papelbon cost only money and Bailey cost talent, but I think the larger point holds.
   35. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:16 PM (#4251870)
Seven games is a pretty huge difference. Sox wouldn't be in contention (and Pap probably wouldn't have been a true seven game improvement) but that's a spot they would have been much better. Keep Paelbon then don't trade Reddick and things start moving in the right direction.
   36. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4251871)
Jesus this is ridiculous, throw the ball lose the game and let me go to bed #######
   37. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4251872)
#### Melancon did a job.
   38. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4251873)
my least favorite Yankee team ever. And of course, come up small in a big moment. They may not be great, but they are consistent.
Even more true with each passing moment.
   39. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:18 PM (#4251874)
Great, they escaped for an inning to delay the inevitable.

Red Sox in extra innings games this year: 2-9
   40. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:22 PM (#4251876)
Yeah, I don't have any confidence in the Red Sox winning this. But that was a really clutch escape job by Melancon, after the complete opposite of clutch by Bailey.
   41. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:26 PM (#4251879)
I'm here to provide optimism!

Not for you, RB.
   42. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:29 PM (#4251885)
Not for you, RB.
Don't worry, I'm at acceptance. I was stuck on anger for a while, but I've now gotten to acceptance.
   43. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:29 PM (#4251886)
Ok so Lassus is drunk. Hope you brought enough for everyone!
   44. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:30 PM (#4251888)
There is not a lot of confidence oozing through this thread right now.
   45. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:35 PM (#4251895)
I am confident this game will end before the Mets game.
   46. JJ1986 Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:36 PM (#4251896)
I am confident this game will end before the Mets game.


They probably don't have much time.
   47. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:37 PM (#4251899)
They battled there!
   48. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:37 PM (#4251901)
Speaking of Bobby Valentine, the Mets just intentionally walked the bases loaded with no outs. #### you, Collins.
   49. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:41 PM (#4251904)
Hmmm.... I'm not sure now what to do with my confidence, seeing as how it has already failed once.
   50. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:41 PM (#4251905)
Let's go, Sox!
   51. Bitter Calculus Instructor Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:42 PM (#4251906)
And the Yankees have resorted to Derek Lowe in extra innings.
   52. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:42 PM (#4251907)
Wait, is that Derek Lowe?
   53. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:44 PM (#4251910)
Saltalamacchia ran his foot into the yellow-sun-powered ankle of Der-ek.
   54. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:44 PM (#4251911)
Oh wait, no, I have that all wrong, ignore me.
   55. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:45 PM (#4251912)
Jeez, they are going to squander this RISP, aren't they?
   56. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:46 PM (#4251913)
Can't risk pitching to Ciriaco. He destroys the Yankees.
   57. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:48 PM (#4251917)
I don't know who any of these players are.

But I do know enough that if they are intentionally walking Pedro Ciriaco to get to another hitter, that hitter is pretty freaking bad.
   58. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:48 PM (#4251918)
Was it me or was Loney's kick out at Jeter kind of bush?
   59. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:49 PM (#4251921)
Iglesias would be the best defensive shortstop in baseball if he played in the majors and he spent the year at AAA. That should tell you what you need to know.
   60. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:49 PM (#4251923)
Man, Padilla is just a terrible-looking human being.
   61. plink Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:49 PM (#4251924)
I have no doubt that Padilla will lose this game. It's what he does.
   62. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:50 PM (#4251925)
Was it me or was Loney's kick out at Jeter kind of bush?

It would be if it was intentional, but it actually looked more clueless and clumsy to me. I mean, WTF do I know, maybe it was on purpose.
   63. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:52 PM (#4251929)
Would be a good time for a rare I chirp walk
   64. plink Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:53 PM (#4251930)
C'mon, eephus for a walk-off HR to Jeter.
   65. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:53 PM (#4251931)
Ball is on the ####### ground. Jesus...take a walk #######.
   66. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:54 PM (#4251934)
This sucks.
   67. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:55 PM (#4251935)
This has been another pathetic inning for the Yankees. Have they gotten a guy on base since A-Rod walked?
   68. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:57 PM (#4251937)
Was that the eephus?
   69. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:58 PM (#4251938)
That was some catch.
   70. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:58 PM (#4251939)
Four years into it and I still can't get over how sterile the new stadium is. There really is a noticesble decline in the atmosphere and the noise level.
   71. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:58 PM (#4251940)
Wow. Season over,
   72. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:59 PM (#4251941)
Someone help me out, I've been boycotting this 10-team playoff news. Is there a chance the Yankees get stuck in a one-game playoff at this point, or no?


WOOHOO! Yay "Derek" Jacoby (Ellsbury)
   73. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 10:59 PM (#4251942)
The new stadium sucks ass and always will. I just got over it.
   74. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:00 PM (#4251943)
How the ####...that was incredible. I wish I was dead.
   75. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:00 PM (#4251944)
Someone help me out, I've been boycotting this 10-team playoff news. Is there a chance the Yankees get stuck in a one-game playoff at this point, or no?
Yes, they can--and will--end up in both Game 163 and the Play-In. After that, it's golf time.
   76. JJ1986 Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:00 PM (#4251945)
Is there a chance the Yankees get stuck in a one-game playoff at this point, or no?


They're a half game up now. If they lose one and the O's win tomorrow, they'll play a one-game on Thursday with the loser going to the-one game on Friday.
   77. Davo Dozier (Mastroianni) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:01 PM (#4251946)
Refusing to pinch-run for Saltalamachia after he made it to second with 1 out...and then refusing to pinch-hit for Igelisas... I mean, that's just inexcusable. You have an obligation to treat this game like your season depends on it, if you're the Red Sox.
   78. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:02 PM (#4251947)
Pedroia bomb here.
   79. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:03 PM (#4251948)
Thanks.

But.... Wait, no, JJ, the Yankees can lose this game, and then tomorrow win, and Baltimore lose?
   80. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:03 PM (#4251949)
Lowe you suck at life
   81. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:05 PM (#4251950)
Do pitchers know where the defense is? ####### ass eating Red Sox scumbag Lowe. #### you and your 2004 game 7
   82. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:06 PM (#4251951)
Well that wasn't so bad.
   83. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:06 PM (#4251952)
But.... Wait, no, JJ, the Yankees can lose this game, and then tomorrow win, and Baltimore lose?
If the Yankees lose today, and then tomorrow they win while Baltimore loses, the Yankees win the East and Baltimore goes to Oakland on Friday.
   84. plink Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:06 PM (#4251953)
Excellent examples of verb tenses there, YES.
   85. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:08 PM (#4251956)
They can. But not a win or go home playoff. No matter what, they are in the playoffs...if you count the play in nonsense as such. Tere would be something fittingly masochistic about watching the season end in back to back one game playoff losses. Count on it!!
   86. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:09 PM (#4251957)
If the Yankees lose today, and then tomorrow they win while Baltimore loses, the Yankees win the East and Baltimore goes to Oakland on Friday.

That's what I thought. You're still in it, RB! Really! Take it from the Mets fan.
   87. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:09 PM (#4251958)
For someone making a million dollars this year, Miller sure looks homeless.
   88. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:12 PM (#4251959)
Haha. Cervelli.
   89. plink Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:12 PM (#4251961)
Oooh! Backup Yankee catcher vs. the Red Sox in extra-innings?
   90. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:13 PM (#4251963)
Cervelli tuning up to represent Italy in the wbc
   91. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:14 PM (#4251964)
The Yankees have 14 hits and three runs. Pitiful.
   92. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:14 PM (#4251965)
Run into one Grandy
   93. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:15 PM (#4251966)
Does playing for the Yankees make your face morph into something begging to be punched? Cervelli has an even more annoying face than Teixiera.
   94. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:15 PM (#4251967)
I'd take a walk and a bloop too
   95. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:16 PM (#4251969)
This is where it ends, I fear.
   96. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:17 PM (#4251970)
Run into one Raul.
   97. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:18 PM (#4251971)
Yeaaaaaahhh!!!
   98. Lassus Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:18 PM (#4251972)
Can't you ####### do anything right?
   99. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:18 PM (#4251973)
How about that!
   100. DKDC Posted: October 02, 2012 at 11:18 PM (#4251974)
Wow, choke job of the year.
