Martin nearly swung his own arms off on the 2-0.
   602. Chip Posted: October 13, 2012 at 11:59 PM (#4268911)
Dotel could help himself by throwing strikes to Martin.

flip.
   604. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:00 AM (#4268913)
Doesn't Octavio Dotel throw a breaking pitch? Like, to righties?
   605. Esoteric Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:00 AM (#4268914)
This game needs to go on for at least another inning, so Ibanez can have a chance to hit a walkoff homer.
   606. JoeHova Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:00 AM (#4268915)
I went back and watched the Ibanez homer again. Prince Fielder didn't even react, he knew what had happened.

Also, let's dispense with the Ibanez-is-clutch routine. Where was the special gene during his time in Philly?


Raul Ibanez's "clutch routine" is very, very specific. It allows him to hit game-tying home runs in playoff games against closers (and game-winning home runs in extra-inning games that he himself tied in the 9th inning). How many of those situations did he really fail at in Philly (or anywhere else)?

If Jeter gets a game winning hit here, I might vomit.

Is TBS deliberately not showing images of the empty seats?

EDIT: It kind of reminds me of pre-2012 Nats games when the jumbotron would show extreme close-ups of the home team's fans, lest a half-dozen Mets/Braves/Phillies caps spoil the shot.
   617. Tim D Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:04 AM (#4268928)
Great, just give him third
   618. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:05 AM (#4268929)
Laird seems to be doing a poor job of framing pitches. They look further out of the strike zone on first watch than they really are.
   619. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:05 AM (#4268930)

While I understand, and even agree with, much of the hate being expressed regarding various teams and their BS ways of success ...

This postseason just won't stop with the ridiculously awesome games. You know a game is good when half the audience is screaming for joy/disbelief, and the other half are either throwing things or mute with disappointment/anger. And that has been happening routinely. Like at least once per day.
   624. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:06 AM (#4268935)

I think so.

####### Bodie.

A single wins the game and he spends the at bat trying to hit the ball 800 feet.

####### infuriating.

It appears so. I think they even used a blimp shot a while ago that was real tight, cutting out nearly any seating.

Passan SMASH!

Brilliant job by Girardi to use his worst relievers in the 7th and 8th and save his aces for the 9th-11th.

Pretty much. This one is climbing the list fairly quickly - it was already pretty solid before Ibanez, and it hasn't exactly dropped since then.

   635. JE (Jason) Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:10 AM (#4268946)
I know Benoit was hit pretty hard, Ron, but don't put the blame on the "bullpen." Only one reliever gave up two two-run home runs.
   636. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:10 AM (#4268947)

People got on the Braves and the city of Atlanta for their empty seats in the playoffs. This is a longstanding thing. It's especially peculiar because NY is such a great baseball city.

Because Yankee fans get great teams year after year and don't seem to give a crap enough to actually go to games? I mean, seriously, this isn't even like Atlanta where there were going out in the NLDS every year...
   640. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:12 AM (#4268952)
Also, it goes to pointing out the terrible choice the Yankees made in constructing their stadium to have the special luxury 1% bowl.

Just look at this thread. The Yankees are in the LCS, and all some Yank fans want to talk about is how much they HATE this team.

[edit] Damn, but Robertson's easily one of my favorite Yankees of the last few years. I just love watching him pitch.
   648. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:19 AM (#4268961)
The announcers talked about all the fans who've left, and TBS later showed an unusual slow right-to-left pan of several sections of mostly vacant seats. They just ended the Tigers' 11th with a low shot of the dugout that showed the empty loge. Not seeing the coverup.
   649. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:19 AM (#4268962)
The thing I hate about Robertson is how wrong I was about him. I never thought he'd be close to this good. His fastball was better than I thought, and then he improved the #### out of it.

"They just ended the Tigers' 11th with a low shot of the dugout that showed the empty loge. Not seeing the coverup."

not taking the anti-Yankee fan stance here, but a chilly midnight doesn't necessarily resound against home fans. If there was a point to be made, and a camera shot, it would be bottom 9 at 4-2 with Ibanez coming up. And then reasonable people can differ on the results...

   663. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: October 14, 2012 at 12:24 AM (#4268977)
No it didnt the new stadium sucks and nobody hates it more than me. But im sure you can find somehalf empty yabkee stadium late innings from yesteryear as well. Still....pretty lame.

The thing that I love about the Robertson is that he's a true outlier. It's not the velocity of his fastball that makes it effective, it's his release point. He gets such extension on his delivery and his stride that it makes it as if the ball is coming in 3-4 mph faster than it actually is (according to the radar gun).

When he's on, he's ought to be outlawed, but it's this unique blend of stuff and mirrors.

Yup. That's the "better than I thought" part - it was better in a way that was practically imperceptible.

But a couple years ago, he also didn't really know where the fastball was going. Now he can locate it better than most major league pitchers.

Smyly's move looks like a balk every time. He does this little shoulder bobble that seems wrong to me.

Did they not show up...i thoguht people just left early.

I say he won't homer. The streak ends.

I'm going to bed. If the Tigers lose, it's the fault of their manager's decision in the 9th, which I've already seen. If the Tigers win, I'll have a nice surprise in the morning, and can use a GameDay audio archive to catch up.

Walk off triple.

Drill him.

See the comments from the first page. The low box was empty from the start. (Apparently empty. I was out at dinner for the first several innings, didn't see the crowd clearly on the tv over my shoulder.)

Are there significant empty seats elsewhere than the masters of the universe field boxes? Because those seats are redonkulous expensive.

I mean, I don't think it's very fair to judge Yankees fans that harshly, especially since it was only yesterday that they actually learned the team would be playing in the ALCS, the seats are so expensive, and the stadium has such a large capacity, but that's still how it looks if you come in with the "Yankees fans are spoiled idiots" mindset.

Another clear strike missed on the first pitch to Ibanez.

Oh, this has gone after midnight. [X]

Passan's article says there were about 3800 empty seats (announced vs capacity).

Avila stabbed at it and carried it down and in. The Tigers catchers keep doing that.

Yeah, but they're sold.

They're *all* sold.

It's just that the ########## that can afford to buy them would rather hang out at the buffet, or the bar, or somewhere, anywhere, else (talking to other ##########), rather than sitting in their seats and being an actual fan.

I *hate* NYS and everything it stands for.

Choker.

Did he hit a homerun yet?

Leave the light on in the bathroom, as I'm about to do the same. Screw you, Leyland.

It's a good thing for Jeff that Randy Levine doesn't have a seat on Yahoo's board of directors.

There were many, many more empty seats beyond the unsold seats available.

To add insult to injury, Valverde is probably polishing off the post-game spread.
