      Oh, that, Derek Jeter…

      I was thinking to myself right before the game that it would be great if Jeter lead off with a HR just like he did off of Beckett that last series we had with the Sox at Fenway. Dreams do come true!

      2 Dps for Andy so far. Likin it.

    5. October 19th, 2009 | 5:07 pm

      1st and 3rd with one out in the 2nd – shame on the Yanks for not getting a run there.

      I’d really like them to cash in on those opportunities. I don’t see a 2-0 score holding up

      damn…i kinda saw that Vlad HR comin.

    16. October 19th, 2009 | 6:34 pm

      Yup, it’s now a 3 inning game.

    17. Corey
      October 19th, 2009 | 6:36 pm

      i don’t understand the pitcher selection…I would just keep throwing him eye level fast balls till he shows he can hit them.

    18. Corey
      October 19th, 2009 | 6:42 pm

      was talking about Vlad in my last comment fyi. I’m pretty mad that my dvr has screwed me again. I was working during game 2, so I relied on the dvr to hook me up with the game. Well, the dvr cut off at the 3 hour mark (the time slot scheduled in the dvr, since it was on fox i forgot to set it to record hours after the game finishes). That’s about the 7th inning. Then today, I come home to see that it flat out didn’t record at all. Since I can’t watch the beginning of the game, I’ll be here for the rest of the game if anyone else is here too.

    19. Corey
      October 19th, 2009 | 6:44 pm

      Ah man, I thought A-Rod had come through again…he hit that hard.

    20. clintfsu813
      October 19th, 2009 | 6:46 pm

      Me too..gotta keep it close. Just one more big hit could do it

    21. Corey

      ah, hey clint! have you been watching the whole game? How’s Andy been?

      Say, when did we let Jose Veras back onto the team? And why is he wearing #62?

    24. cr1
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:04 pm

      And not a midge in sight.

    25. MJ
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:04 pm

      1) Pitch selection from Andy to Vlad was atrocious considering Kendrick had hit a HR the previous inning on a cutter inside.

      2) Why was Andy so concerned with Abreu on 1st with 2 outs anyway? It’s not like he’s Carl Crawford or anything. If you concede 2nd base there and Vlad hits anything but a HR, it’s still a 3-2 game. It’s like Andy manufactured the stress in the inning by not focusing on the batter and wasting all that tempo and rhythm.

      3) Yankee bats not showing up this series at all.

      4) #62 is the fattest, ugliest, most worthless piece of shit I’ve ever come across. If I never see his disgusting, shapeless presence on the mound again, I would be more than happy with that.

      5) The wheels have come off this game. Marte’s coming in and suddenly I feel like the season is fading fast.

      6) Marte just got one pitch, one out. The Angels are dipshits for swinging at his first pitch.

      I want to reiterate point #4. I DETEST #62. I’d take a team of Xavier Nadys over him.

      October 19th, 2009 | 7:11 pm

      Gardner thrown out. Damnit, this game just went from awesome to horrendous in no time.

      I knew the Yanks were in trouble when three straight batters struck out against Darren freakin’ Oliver.

    29. MJ
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:12 pm

      Holy crap, the no-glove catcher just decided to show up to October.

    30. Corey
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:12 pm

      Wow, it took a strong throw right on the money with a quick tag to get him. He’s fast. I wonder what the yankees could get from a National League team for him.

      And Posada comes through with a HUGE home run. This team just won’t die!!

    31. Corey

      Wow a-rod kinda raped Jeter a little bit on that replay…

      Did anyone see that though with A-Rod and Jeter? That was really really wierd.

    34. MJ
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:15 pm

      Why is the Fox camera showing fatty #62 on TV? That worthless abortion should’ve been told that only ballplayers get to sit on the bench and losers go home.

      Good grief, horrendous baserunning there. What a lucky break.

      October 19th, 2009 | 7:25 pm

      Let it be known that Melky completely misplayed that ball. Time for Cash to find us a real starter for CF.

      October 19th, 2009 | 7:26 pm

      Does Melky have a say where he stands in CF? I would think the coaches would designate that in the playoffs…I could be wrong though

    45. October 19th, 2009 | 7:27 pm

      True, although the routes you take are obviously your own.

      That was some pitch by Hughes to strike out Hunter.

      October 19th, 2009 | 7:32 pm

      Tex has been so money with the glove this series. He is certainly saving enough runs to make up for his offense woes so far this series at that plate.

    51. Corey
      October 19th, 2009 | 7:33 pm

      Sum’ game, huh?

      FYI, I won’t have my recap/game-entry until two hours after the game…whenever that might be…if ever!

      No joke. Losing this game would be catastrophic in my opinion since the bullpen is all gone tomorrow (leaving only Gaudin to caddy for CC).

      Bad managing by Joe taking out Robertson. At this point you need to soak up innings.

      I don’t think this was a great game. This was Andy not executing, Girardi overmanaging, and #62 taking a fat shit on the Yankees hopes for #27.

      I just went from thinking we’re winning the WS to pretty much terrified that it’ll be a Game 7 situation which is a crap-shoot. This sucks.

      I’m talking from a baseball fan’s point of view. This was a great game to watch. Emotions were running high the whole game, I was at the edge of my seat when Rivera got out of that jam, pumping my fists. A bloop and a blast makes this game a yankee classic. It’s not like the yankees mailed it in once they lost the lead. It’s 1 game.

    91. JeremyM

      I have no problem losing if the team is outplayed. Losing because the manager has the need to overmanage a game is something I have a problem with.

      Perfectly well-said. Girardi just lost my trust and, frankly, if my name were Dave Robertson, I’d think my manager was an effin’ moron.

      That was a classic Torre move right there, going with the patented “Circle of Trust” pitcher that isn’t good enough to pitch in that situation.

      Not sure if you realize it, or heard the interview, but David Wells recently referred to Joe Torre’s managing style in with that exact phrase and even mentioned “Meet the Parents”.

      Problem is, why in the Lord’s name would anyone consider Aceves to be inside such a circle?????

    101. JeremyM
      October 19th, 2009 | 10:09 pm

      Based on his first half, Aceves was in the circle. That’s what made it a Torre move.

      I’m not saying they win, but they had their best bats coming up. No reason, at all, to go to Aceves there. And he gave up that kind of shot to Mathis?

    102. JeremyM
      October 19th, 2009 | 10:10 pm

      Well, the best bats they had left anyway- Teix (yes, he’s struggling big time but still), A-Rod, and I guess Molina or Guzman?!?!

      Has Girardi taken a swig from the Joe Torre crack pipe?

      And how many time is this now he’s going to put in Gardner as a PR and he a) doesn’t steal as the hitter bangs into a DP or b) gets thrown out ???

      We’re still up 2-1 and we have CC going tomorrow, and that we can feel good about.

      But why do I feel this LaRussa-like bullpen use and obsession with pinch runners is going to come back and burn them if not in this series, then in the WS with all the double switches & such in the NL park?

      @ JeremyM:
      IMO, there are two guys in the BP who should be used only when they have to be and not by choice: Aceves and Marte. They have both shown lack of guts despite having decent stuff.

      As a fan, non-expert and non-baseball insider, why are things like this so obvious to us? Is there anyone who thought that bringing in Ace was a good idea at the time?

      @ 77yankees:
      Joe Gym has been doing this for a while but the team has protected him from having to defend these poor managing decisions.

      Let’s light a candle that we get eight solid from CC tomorrow night, and Mo for the last 3 outs.

      So did Steve’s brain simply explode after this one? I’m close…..

      Consider the candle lit 77, we need it.

      I think every Yankee fan needs a good night’s sleep after this one.

      Nope. I just decided to take a two-hour break after the game, watch HOUSE and LIE TO ME, remind myself to breathe again, and not let this one get to me.

      Yes, it hurts to lose this one. But, the Yankees didn’t do a go job with RISP today and their bullpen, at times, left something to be desired.

      Pettitte was OK, in the end. Tex made some nice plays. But, the bottom of the order sucked…aw, hell, this whole game sucked!

      There, you got me boiling again, happy now!?!?
