ALCS6: Yankees 5, Angels 2

Alas. Go Pedro & the Phillies.
Example
Game 6, Take 2.

Joe Saunders (Game 2: 7-6-2-1-5, 105) / Andy Pettitte (Game 3: 6.1-7-3-1-2, 95)

George A. King III, Post:
Officials made the call to postpone Game 6 although they were leery of making the move because the Angels potentially could benefit.
Maybe this ties in with the MLB.com goof in the previous post.
Example
Mike Lupica, Daily News:
[I]f Pettitte does the kind of job he has done for a very long time in New York, going all the way back to October of 1996, then the Yankees don't have to worry about another one-game season against the Angels.
Then again, here's another Game 6 pitched by Big Game Andy, during another series in which the MFY led 3-2.

Mark Feinsand, Daily News:
They need to win one of the next two games on their home turf, a place where they lost two straight games only twice since A-Rod returned on May 8.
Keep telling yourself that.

Got 10 bucks on LA. Do it, boys.

Jere said...

"Got 10 bucks on LA"

I got a lot more than that on 'em. If ya know what I mean.

redsock said...

I thought I had an extra scorecard or two at work, but apparently not. Rats.

tim said...

We all do, Jere.

redsock said...

I don't, really. I want them to lose. I'll be thrilled if they lose. And lose horribly. But if they don't ... I won't be happy, but meh. In many ways, they are just another team now. The 1 out of 30 that won the prize. Okay. On to 2010.

tim said...

It's a conundrum because I hate the Angels too due to our recent escalating rivalry with them.

Philly is the best option here.

tim said...

Joe Buck looks like he has fake eyebrows.

And there's the awful FOX postseason music, "do-dooooo-do-dooooo"

redsock said...

Pedro. I'm a NL man for the next 10 days or so. "The Joy of Phillies"!

Plus we have an old friend from Brooklyn who now lives in London. Big Phillies fan. We watched Joe Carter go deep at their apartment back in 1993. Bit of a bummer, that was. :>/

tim said...

And Tim McCarver looks like one of those old ignorant jackasses who is completely out of sync with reality but too stupid/used to the way things are to realize it.

Oh wait.

redsock said...

tip those pitches, horseface.

Amy said...

A game thread? I am up for that.

I always want the Yankees to lose, but can live with them going on the WS IF they lose there.

redsock said...

That little box with the catcher's signals is fucking dumb. Clutter up the screen with more shit, Fox. Good idea.

redsock said...

i'm ready for a shock, torii

tim said...

Let me get this straight fox...the key to new york winning this game - GAME 6 - TONIGHT - is to have CC Sabathia ready to pitch game 1 of the world series.

OK then.

tim said...

I also think there's something not right about this directv commercial with david spade and chris farley, who is dead, in a scene from Tommy Boy, in which david spade redoes his lines to be about getting directv and they use the footage from the movie of dead farley.

redsock said...

they had fred astaire dancing with a vacuum cleaner, so pretty much everything is fair game ...

redsock said...

hey look!!! it's jeter on tv!!!!

redsock said...

thanx dumbo.

tim said...

Fine baserunning there, you fuckin' putz.

tim said...

Ball hockey time - be back for the later innings.

Ish said...

I forgot about the game thread. Hey, everyone!

Steve Philips has just been fired from ESPN for his affair with a 22 year old production assistant.

Jere said...

Why don't they tell the little children of America that Swisher just did what any other right fielder would have done?

redsock said...

All the kids are asleep, remember? MLB hates kids.

redsock said...

time for jetes to end the inning.

redsock said...

left 'em loaded.

Jere said...

Squanderific!

redsock said...

"Gonna get my PhD
I'm a pinstriped lobotomy"

Ish said...

5 LOBs for them.

redsock said...

Baltimore dong for Mathis.

redsock said...

could you possibly swing at a shittier pitch aybar?

redsock said...

ABREU!

1-0

redsock said...

pettitet with his 17,964th balk

Ish said...

He did swing at a shittier pitch. He went SASAHE but managed to foul it off before whiffing on that inside jump-roper.

redsock said...

i guess i missed that one.

redsock said...

i don't think god likes the words andy is using in the dugout.

Ish said...

I think the words Andy's using in the dugout is why this game starts after 8 on a school night.

redsock said...

Abreu goes to the wall - OMG!

Jere said...

Things I've learned:

1. It's a beautiful night.

2. Jeter continues to exist.

redsock said...

nyy playing scoisciaball?

redsock said...

damn - shoulda kept bunting.

redsock said...

i love swisher pointing to the heavens after a single. it won't be long before someone will be heaven-pointing after hitting a hard foul ball.

Ish said...

I keep having nightmares of Damon hitting a grand slam.

redsock said...

no, that's an erotic dream from 2004.

redsock said...

saunders setting up the dp.

Jere said...

"it won't be long before someone will be heaven-pointing after hitting a hard foul ball."

Or Fox comparing a Jeter foul ball to one of the most famous home runs in history. Oh wait...

redsock said...

mcmoron says jeter is a dead RF hitter "with two strikes"

yeah, only then.

Jere said...

I forgot to mention the 3rd thing I've learned tonight:

3. Pitchers (named Pettitte) are getting the outside strike call.

redsock said...

LAAAssholes.

Ish said...

I learned that a.) Scioscia sucks at managing. b.) Girardi sucks at managing c.) Jeter is apparently just like Carlton Fisk

redsock said...

angels pen up

redsock said...

not able to watch every second, so i have fox on very low for some reference. missed the fisk comment.

redsock said...

mccarver calling for a pitching change.

Jere said...

how about 3rd base, there, guy?

redsock said...

that's not angels baseball!

Jere said...

It was just Jeter using a little body language to get his foul pop to go to the seats. Buck said he looked like Fisk.

Ish said...

Gump Jr. out there.

redsock said...

his last batter if he doesn't get a dp?

redsock said...

don, at home: "x minute wait for pettitte".

redsock said...

WTF - a strike!!!!

redsock said...

classic case of the ump going by what the pitcher had been throwing and not by the actual rules of the game

not rare, but not right

Ish said...

But if you're going with the flow of the game you don't call that a strike to walk in a run if it's that close. Not in Game 6 of the ALCS.

Ish said...

If the bases are empty go ahead, call that a ball. But that was so borderline. How the hell do you call that a ball in that situation? Fucking asshat.

redsock said...

fox camera work gets slappy at first saying: "that ball's a strike!"

redsock said...

gid(umbo)p pls

redsock said...

YES!!!!

Jere said...

okay, they're totally thinking that they should be u by a lot more. Game is FFO.

redsock said...

lame attempt by slappy to go in hard.

Ish said...

That was further outside than Ball 4 to A-Rod was.

Jere said...

OTTsky. Okay, Angels, do it right now. Seriously, this inning.

9casey said...

Ish said...
If the bases are empty go ahead, call that a ball. But that was so borderline. How the hell do you call that a ball in that situation? Fucking asshat.



If it is a ball with them empty it should be a balle with them full, this ain't little league...did you see Arod mouth "that ball was a strike"

Jere said...

my fucking god

redsock said...

b-b-b-bad to the chone
b-b-b-b-bad

Ish said...

Chone Lugo.

redsock said...

weak shit.

redsock said...

fuck you, rudy, you fascist asshole

redsock said...

we need the impaler.

Ish said...

Vlad, don't try to do something you're not good at doing, such as, taking pitches. Just keep swinging, just keep swinging...

redsock said...

jtc up

redsock said...

rally time!

Ish said...

See? It feels good to be a swinger! Thank you, Vlad.

Jere said...

this guy supposedly hits dongs. Let's see it.

Or a single, come ON!

Ish said...

Cuban Missile crisis.

Ish said...

Cuban Asshole Crisis.

Jere said...

Did anyone tell the Angels that any popup to the right side goes out of the damn park?

redsock said...

It'll be good to tag jtc for the go-ahead runs. Then watch him fist-pump.

Jere said...

old white reliever = journeyman

old black reliever = drifter!

/McCarver

redsock said...

amazing play by jeter to stop at 2nd. wow.

Jere said...

nice job for a change, Chone

Ish said...

It's now or never, Assholes.

redsock said...

fuck.

truped for a hit

Ish said...

I was too. Me: "YES! Shit."

tim said...

Good jeterian hit.

Oh good, JtC in to give up the game-tying dong.

Trying to think of some sort of pun involving "JtC" "dong" and "in"...too tired to think right now.

Jere said...

In from the bullpen: Fat guy in a little coat.

Ish said...

It wouldn't be a spectacular Yankee collapse without a late come-from-behind win...

Ish said...

Fuck the heck? Izturis for Mathis? Make your manager look smart, Maicer, or Meicer, or Meijer or whatever the fuck your name is.

redsock said...

clank.

tim said...

Boys in the booth just went flaccid.

tim said...

Why is Joba wearing a pool rope around his neck?

redsock said...

excellent play by jeter to guide that carom off himself to cano.

Jere said...

(McCarver's wheels spinning trying to come up with a reason why Jeter made that out possible...)

tim said...

Now its a chest pound?

Jere said...

no he's still swatting at phantom midges

tim said...

speaking of which, i was watching a planet earth special tonight and they did a feature on midges. was quite interesting. i still have no idea how the hell they made it to jacobs field that day, but oh well!

Jere said...

It's a who's who of celebs who rooted for the Mets when THEY were good!

Ish said...

Mr. April lost his calendar.

Ish said...

Red Dot warming.

Jere said...

A-Rod missed the first month of the season, he thinks it's September right now.

redsock said...

nice scoop and throw by morales there.

Jere said...

worst fake-go by ARod ever

Jere said...

I guess A-Rod's "creating a good hitting situation for Posada" didn't work out, Tim!

redsock said...

6 outs.
you may not be able to help it, but don't waste them.

Ish said...

6 outs to get 2 runs. I like the chances.

Bloop and a blast!

tim said...

Well, one is going to be wasted because fucking goofball sosha is going to let Chone "automatic out" Figgins go up there now and piss this at bat away.

redsock said...

and the bloop might clear the fence too!

redsock said...

last time fruitbat had a chance to close out a game and clinch the pennant, he failed.

now?

redsock said...

CHONE!!!!

go halos, you fucking fucks.

Jere said...

Figgins on

tim said...

HAHAHAHAHA

redsock said...

"CATCH THE BALL!!!"

Jere said...

Lazy Jeter shoulda dove!

redsock said...

that was the bloop ....

Ish said...

What a play by Jeter to flap his arms so he could *almost* get there! His baseball IQ is so high, you know he's planning for a double play.

Jere said...

oh come on, it's a 4-3 if he misses it anyway...

redsock said...

fucking ump - he was safe at first.

Ish said...

The cutter is not a dazzling pitch. Sorry, but it isn't. It's just a brainteaser.

Jere said...

well a 4-1...

redsock said...

time for a shock, hunter.

redsock said...

FUCK --

redsock said...

i have my sound way down. did moron just say something about an angels steal of second?

redsock said...

i believe in you, vlad.

redsock said...

tek ain't batting here.

Amy said...

COME ON

redsock said...

vlad stretching his legs!

Amy said...

He can't count...

Ish said...

Vlad forgets sometimes how many times you have to not swing at a pitch in order to walk.

Jere said...

if there was any doubt left Vlad's paying attention tonight....

redsock said...

clean it out, vg.

Ish said...

Moron was talking about Figgins at second, how Cano was playing behind second in case a throw to second or Figgins stealing third. Put him in good position to field that liner up the middle.

Jere said...

so the camera was focused on Jeter there why.....? Oh, right, the whole "he created us in his image" thing

redsock said...

RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

ONE RUN GAME.

Jere said...

3-2 fuckers

tim said...

yes vlad!

redsock said...

i thought he was saying that because the LAA stole second (which obviously is wrong), cano was near the bag to field the ball.

redsock said...

i will also accept a blast here.

tim said...

alright kendry, make use of that right field.

redsock said...

the crowd quiet, knowing the inevitable doom is right around the corner.

tim said...

9th:

kendrick
rivera
napoli
aybar
figgins

may one of the fuckers on the above mentioned list get on base and may another one of said fuckers drive him home.

redsock said...

21 pitches for FB in that inning.

he threw more than 29 in a game only twice this year:

31 vs boston 4/24
32 vs mets 6/12

redsock said...

hey angels: you really should not allow any runs here.

Amy said...

And what were the outcomes in those games?

redsock said...

blown save against us:
1.1-4-2-0-3
that was the game bay hit a 2-out, bot 9th dong off him. yook won it in 11 with a dong off marte.

mets:
1.1-1-1-1-2
nyy won it in the bot 9th

redsock said...

wtf - throwing the game?

Amy said...

Well, the Angels are trying hard to lose this game right now.

tim said...

Worthless fucksticks. looks like i'll need to make up this 10 bucks on the phillies.

redsock said...

and yet they don't have to do anything to lose. they are already down by a run.

Jere said...

Note: The June 12th game was the one where the Mets dropped a popup with two outs in the 9th to lose the game.

redsock said...

unbelievable.

the 1919 white sox couldn't do any better.

tim said...

Are you fucking serious

Amy said...

Like I said...trying hard to lose the game.

tim said...

what the fuck was that?????

mike butcher, what a fucking appropriate name.

redsock said...

i assume the mfy will get the guys on base in, with 0 outs, so 6-2 at least.

fuck the fucking angel fuckers

tim said...

WWJD

What would Jeter do?

Amy said...

I think I may go to sleep now to avoid watching the Yankee celebration. Is that just mean or what?

Jere said...

The threat of Jeter coming to the plate caused both those errors.

redsock said...

FB has allowed 5 runs in a game twice (once to Bos) and 6 runs once.

tim said...

Why is that mean? Fuck them! I'm not watching the celebration. I'm watching what I hope to be Rivera's greatest moment...Juan Rivera that is. And Mariano's greatest defeat.

Amy said...

Small comfort at this point, Allan, but whatever.

The Phillies will get them anyway. I can't wait to see Pedro shut them down.

Amy said...

(Mean to Harvey, Tim. Not mean to the Yankees.)

redsock said...

I think I may go to sleep now to avoid watching the Yankee celebration. Is that just mean or what?

Won't Harvey be dancing around?

redsock said...

hold 'em here.

2 runs is not a mountain to overcome.

tim said...

Ahh, mean to Harvey....maybe. But even so, I think its understandable given your team.

Amy said...

Harvey may prefer to celebrate without me. Dancing around or not.

tim said...

Mojo music? Ain't No Mountain High Enough?

redsock said...

so - arod dong here, right?

Jere said...

Stand up, Torii you piece of crap

Amy said...

OK. I am going to sleep. I will undoubtedly hear the results soon enough.

Good night. See you all either at the WS or tomorrow or in April.

redsock said...

Night, Amy.

Pathetic SoCal shitfucks.

redsock said...

long wait for f-bat?

Jere said...

He really smelled the bat on that one?

Ish said...

The problem here is the Angels all feel like they've lost. Look at Kendrick. He so doesn't want to be there.

redsock said...

coming back now would qualify as shocking the world.

Jere said...

Adenhart: "Helllloooooo?!!"

redsock said...

it's true, though. look at them on the bench. they are dead-eyed -- already packing for the plane ride home.

Jere said...

McCarver, please die

tim said...

let's not start suckin each others dicks quite yet.

Jere said...

--the Wolf

Jere said...

get camera on Jeter! Oh wait, the perma-Jeter cam is ALWAYS on Jeter.

redsock said...

Go Phillies.

tim said...

So, PHILLY!!!!!!!

Ish said...

Fruitbat celebrated less just now than Joba has after any outing.

Jere said...

well, the defending champs just have to come through now. No problem against this bunch.

Ish said...

Go Phillies.

Although I would have said that anyways. Fucking Angels. It was a car crash 8th inning.

Ish said...

And actually, the Phillies have really been the steamrollers in this postseason. They're a fucking buzzsaw. Cliff Lee, Pedro, Cole Hamels, Happ in the bullpen... only question really is their bullpen.

Jere said...

I'm gonna specifically buy Angels games for Fenway next year to give Torii an earful along with everybody else.

Ish said...

Unrelated: I still think LDS should be 7 game series as well.

Ish said...

But then again, I think a lot of things and MLB will never listen.

andy said...

I am interested to see how many save opportunities are actually blown. We always hear how fucking wonderful rivera is but how is he really when compared to the whole picture data? I mean how likely is it for a shitty closer to blow a game and how many wins can actually attributed to him and how much of the credit for a win goes to where it belongs, the people who pitched and played the other 8 innings? Would rivera have half as many saves if he were on the Royals for the last 15 years?

L-girl said...

Ish, I'm sure MLB will grant your wish this time. It's inevitable. More TV, money money. If only they'd shorten the season by a week or 10 days, so we're not playing baseball on Thanksgiving. (Not Canadian Thanksgiving, either.)
