Is Gaudin that terrible? I dont like that we're pitching Sabathia on short rest, yet again.
It's a good move, if you can go up 3-1 with your ACE, you go for it.

Let Gaudin pitch game 5, and then you don't have to worry about AJ pitching in the NL park, where we would lose Posada and Matsui's bat, and then he and Andy can pitch at home on full rest if necessary.

Let's hope he doesnt have a repeat of game 1.
He went deep and gave up 2 runs, I'll take that again from him, we should win those all day!

Nothing worse than a yankee victory. Chearing against this all star team is tire-some and futile. But to keep pace with the rest of the country, it is a necessary evil.

I hope the worst ills in the world bestow your millionaires...i mean roid boys...i mean baseball players.

Death to the Yankees! Who's with me???

Whhhaaa!!!

Great win for the Yankees. They fell behind early but Andy settled down and they bounced back. The offense came alive, Marte, and Joba were lights out. Mo did what Mo does. And they got Swisher back along with a better game from Damon.

The only downside is Hughes gave up the HR. But I think the Yankees are feeling much better about the pen after todays results.

Matsui's pinch hit homer was huge too.

He is one of the best situational hitters I've ever seen, he's very clutch.

I'm Gonna miss him, really wish they could keep him as a bench/DH player.

got a number?

This must be a huge series for you...wow, you beat out the red sox and rays for the division...past the mighty Twins for the divisional and oh my god...the Angels???? Wow...epic...

Now you have the Phillies who have one great pitcher and a good lineup. You did it...the highest sports honor in sports is yours and you beat...??? Congrats, losing a single game in the WS is a joke to team steroids/payroll...:rl:

Whhhaaa!!!

Amazing how those Angels swept the sox and the Phillies won 3 straight division titles and a WS.

Pathetic!

whhaaa nothin...just laughing at how you even care about this joke of a series. You have about 5 teams to beat out in given year and it takes you more than 4 games to win a WS? What a joke.
So you are laughing that the Yankees are 2 wins away from winning number 27, interesting.

It's such a joke, so what does that make the team you root for? They could not even make this "joke of a series"

SOUR GRAPES!!!

Hilarious!!! :rl:

You know I think you are a really good poster. But I have to say you are coming off really small in this thread.

I have been to a TON of Yankee games over the years. You know what? It is really expensive. I started a thread on it, but it cost me about $250 to bring my son to a meaningless late season game in bad seats.

What is the point?

The local fans are paying for that payroll. The Yankees are playing within the rules so boo-hoo. Funny though nobody was complaining from 2001-now because the Yankees made bad moves. Now they make a bunch of good moves and all the hate starts again.

For all the payroll whining people overlook a few things:

  • They overpaid in some cases to reward players that have FOUR RINGS. Jeter, Posada, Mariano and Andy make a lot of money.
  • In 1996 when the Yankees started winning those rings their payroll was # 1, barely. The # 2 team was pretty close.
  • Joba, Hughes, Robertson, Cano, Coke, Melky, Aceves, Bruney, Gardner along with Jeter, Posada, Mo and Andy are all players that came through the Yankees farm system. That is a lot of home grown talent.

The Yankees win because Jeter gets clutch hits and Mariano is the greatest reliever of all time. Both came up through the minor leagues. Stop hating. :razz:

Please Max, don't let the facts get in the way of the hate! :D

I think you're missing the point. Who gives a **** about this series? Oh yeah, aside from New York, which believe, me...does exist.

So you have some players through your farm system, so do other teams on your roster. I'm just here laughing at the fact that you have to beat out the Mets (sort of), Red Sox, Rays (for a couple more years), Dodgers, Phillies and maybe the Cardinals. Wow, this must be really thrilling for you to tie up some victories.

Coming up small or not, this series is a joke.

Kind of sounds like you care and it hurts! :rl:

Oh and can you explain to me how we have other teams on our roster? :yawn:

Teixeira - FA from Angels

Rodriguez* - Trade with Rangers

Swisher - Trade with White Sox

Damon - FA from Red Sox

Matsui - FA Japan

Sabathia - FA Brewers/Indians

Burnett - FA Blue Jays

Pettitte* - Owes career to steroids and then resigned FA from Astros

Although Mariano and Jeter are a couple of class act players and some of the best MLB has to offer...their teammates are just purchased. The yanks do have more home grown guys than in years past...Either way, they still only have to beat out about five or six teams year in and year out.

and boo freakin hoo on paying a lot for tickets. I don't understand why anyone would pay to watch them play JV talent for most of the year.

Those are players not teams. :rolleyes:

It must really suck to be so bitter. :rl:

Nice start so far...

Why are the umps warning both benches? Blanton wasn't throwing at ARod. Now C.C. has to be careful.

I don't like how they warned us, it's not like we hit anybody.

They hit A-Rod 3 times already, but we can't get any get back tonight, I guess they'll just have to beat them up on the score board, good start with 2 already!

LETS GO YANKS!!!

This lineup is awful. ARod is going to get the Barry Bonds treatment tonight.

AJ has to pitch out of his mind tonight for the Yankees to win.

What happens if he loses?

Game 6? Andy P on short rest?

This could be a disaster if it does not work, and Lee is facing a lineup at least 30% worse then the one he shut down in game 1.

I would have gone with Gaudin tonight, and kept Posada in the lineup.

Then we could have had AJ on full rest in game 6 if necessary, and Pettite available on full rest in game 7 or CC on short rest.

Why is Joe G, treating this like a put away or must win game instead of a free game?

Why pitch AJ on the road and lose both Posada and Matsui, in a game we don't need and when Melky is out.

I doubt they pitch to A-rod all game now.

I'm going to look like a second-guesser here, but I think a lot of people though this before.

Starting AJ on three days rest: DUMB.

I sadi it all along, I wanted Gaudin to pitch today, starting AJ made absolutely no sense.

Not only did we lose Posada for an at bat, but he compromised the rotation for the rest of the series.

You guys are nuts if you don't agree with Joe here

Had to go for the Kill

The way Lee has pitched this post season the odds were we were going to lose this game anyway, sacrificing the lineup tonight and the rotation for the rest of the series was stupid!

On AJ no less, how many times has he given up 3-4 runs before he gets out number 1?

Twice so far this post season!

Doesn't matter, you can't give a game up in the WS.

Its early in the game, sitll plenty of time. If not, back to NY.

Starting Gaudin is not giving up the game.

Pitching AJ on the road tonight on short rest, caused us to lose Posada in a game where we have no Matsui, and now Pettite has to pitch on short rest.

It was a dumb move, not that I needed hind sight to call this, but look at the out come.

AJ pitches much better at home, how anybody can say this was the way to go despite what has happened and how it will effect our next start is beyond me!

If Posada doesn't pinch hit when Molina's spot comes up I am going to....ah...nevermind.

Anyway, it is only 5 runs. Lee is at 50 pitches and just had a long rest. Keep plugging away get this to the bullpens, the Yankees lineup is better now with Posada soon to be in and they can pinch hit for the 9 spot as needed pretty much going forward.

They can come back.

Yeah, sacrificing Posada tonight was brilliant! :rolleyes:

Burnett said he was fine, and has won every time (3-0) he ever pitched on 3 days in his MLB career.

What ever.

This game isn't over yet. And even if they don't pull it out we need 1 win in 2 games in the Bronx with Pettitte and then CC against....who else is their starter other than Lee? They have 1 pitcher. Lidge and Hamels are shot, Blanton and Pedro not much better.

Burnett shat the bed. Does seem he had a strike zone the size of a grapefruit and Victorino was bunting, but with Lee on it might not matter. And as long as he was going to walk Utley he could've at least had him taste some dirt.

This broadcast is officially insufferable. Joe Buck is a gay porno name anyway.

Listen if starting AJ tonight would not force Andy to go on short rest in game 6, I'd be more for it, but that was not the case.

Plus losing Posada and Matsui tonight, with no Melky made the bottom part of our lineup, garbage.

As if Lee needed help, he already shut us down once, and is 4-0 with .057 ERA this post season.

Bad move by Joe G, if we lose this game, he gave them more of a chance then they should have had!

Phillies almost blow an 8-2 lead at home. Game 6 get it done yanks.
Gaudin starts we probably win that game.

AJ gave up 6 runs in 2 innings!

Pettitte's career stats on 3 days rest are not good.

He's like 4-6 with a 4.15 ERA, in 14 games.

What a dumb move pitching AJ tonight, and now causing the rest of the series to be started on short rest.

God for bid Andy or CC need to come out early, there's not much to bring in and rely on.

We could of had Pettitte on full rest, to back up CC in game 7 if necessary!

Another Joe G blunder.

It is okay. At the end of the week the line will read like this:

Phillies 2 wins

Yankees 4 wins

Yankees World Championship

Girardi can be blamed but if Coke gets lefties out instead of giving up home runs, the results of this game are different.

I hope so!

Also Pettitte has not pitched on 4 days rest in 2 months, he's been going on 5, and now he has to go on 3, and he has not done that in like 3 years.

I hope you are right MAX, but either way it was a dumb move to start AJ yesterday IMO, it was not necessary and now everything is compromised.

As for Coke and ifs, if Marte or if Joba come in things could have been different too, but I'm not into ifs, the sh*t I posted happened or is happening. ;)

You want to entrust game 5 to Gaudin, but God forbid Andy or CC need to come out early there is nothing to rely on? How can you say that with a straight face?
How would that be the case? Where would the rest of the pen be?

So he's not good enough to start game 5, but he is to come in early? Did you post that with a straight face???

AJ pitches better at home, and our line up would have been better if Gaudin pitched, oh and he gave up 6 runs in 2 innings.

Obviously it was a bad move, as I thought it would be. There was no need to put the rest of the series on short rest, it was dumb.

Straight face.

If you don't pitch AJ in Game 5 he goes in game 6 on full rest. He has had bad outing so that bad outing could have happened on full rest. For game 7 you would start CC on short rest even with Andy on full rest.

So they basically said we need one and they will have to go through AJ, Andy and CC to get it. I like the Yankees chances.

Yeah except AJ is allot better at home, and you would have Andy on full rest behind CC for game 7.

Not to mention the lineup would have been better from the start in game 5. :rolleyes:

That being said, I think we wrap it up tonight anyway! :)

Tonight will be the fifth time Andy has pitched on 3 day's rest in the postseason. This is how he did the first four times...

2003 World Series: 8 1/3 innings, 1 R (unearned), 6 H; he threw 92 pitches in last start. 2000 ALDS: 3 2/3 IP, 5 R, 10 H; he threw 108 pitches in last start.

1997 ALDS: 6 2/3 IP, 4 R, 6 H; he pitched five innings in last start (pitch count unavailable)

1996 ALCS: 8 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H; he threw 121 pitches in last start

6 years is a long time, especially when you are nearly 40. :shutit:
