If they score here it's curtains.
Gifted an out
Angel widening the zone a bit. Hopefully only for the good guys though.
Really? Now with the quick hook? Better throw strikes Dellin.
Al Leiter looks like Jeff Flake.
So far the Yanks have tried to gift wrap this game. Do your jobs for crying out loud.
Gee look at that. Getting someone warming up before trouble starts brewing.
Not a strike on that first pitch.
Yes Sanchez steps out. A small if petty victory.
The bigger the stage, the more we shrink, this team is done
Hey, how overblown was all that “Jeter gifted the Yankees Stanton nonsense?” Fucking guy sucks.
He is an albatross.
Trying to gift them another run. No better time.
Pretty certain Gardner is gone, CC wants to come back but he'll be even more useless next Autumn, Robertson, who knows...in which case ...the only person under contract with the Yankees I believe who will have a WS ring is....gag me...Damon
You mean Ellsbury?
More great D by the Yanks.
I'm getting tired, of course Ellsbury...
It would be hilarious if they manage to bomb Sale and comeback here...but highly unlikely
So, if there's a comeback here, does Price start 5?
Also feel like this is a similar end to last season, should the lead hold, with the bats going a touch light, and Sabathia with a suboptimal elimination game start. It would feel worse because a round earlier, at home, and given it's Boston, but the parallels shouldn't be undersold.
Can't you see the 20ft fork sticking out of their backs ?
well, just hold them I guess.
So who pitches the 10th?
Does Stanton strike out to end it or hit a two out solo homer?
Of the Yankees eight walkoff wins this season, none involved comebacks of 3+ runs to either tie or win the game, 9th inning or later. 2 was done a handful of times, that said.
This guy Kimbrel is a ridiculous looking character isn't he? Looks like a hillbilly.
oof. The guy can't throw strikes can't give him a freebie
G-Rod or G-od?
a DP is far more likely than a HR
And he sucks.
OH MY GOD
Kimbrell crashes the SOSH servers
Dammit Gary take a pitch the man can't throw a strike
It's the Kid for the win.
so we end with yet another close but no seegar tease....
I like Torres here.
Not on the bag. Looked safe live.
Hey, great season guys. Yanks are about to get much scarier real quick, and that was a coin flip final game.
our pen gave you two prime chances to come back in two separate games, could not either time.
Why didn’t Hechavarria tag up and go to 3rd. Thst was a huge play with Kimbrel bouncing breaking balls.
On a flyball to semi-deep left? He would have been out.
was wondering the same thing live
Add me to this company. Had the same question live, made no sense not to in what was sure to be a one run game, and as you mentioned, the bouncing sliders. Not only that, but given how deep the fly to left was (to the warning track!), it was really a questionable action, or lack thereof.
it reached the warning track and Hech was brought in for his I assume decent speed.
in the end Stanton blew it again, and Torres once again bounced a weak ball, will be interesting to see how his sophomore year goes, he's a stud
should be another great division battle in 2019, see you guys then
Boston was the better team. I like the energy those guys bring to every game. Yanks could learn from that.
Great season for you guys. Too bad the two 100 win teams had to meet at this juncture. You always have lots of classy posters on the forum. You'll get more starting pitching and be back next year for another dogfight.
I missed most of that game again, everything between 2-0 and the bottom of the 9th. I actually think this is the perfect result for NY in a lot of ways, especially if it ends up with Cashman upgrading Boone next year (unlikely but a man can dream). NY has been the 3rd or 4th best team all year and that's where they end up. Also this is why I have been rooting for HOU all season long, hopefully they can now do the job NY couldn't. Until then, congrats on an ongoing insanely good season to BOS fans.
Condolences to you guys, and congrats for a 100-win season. Believe me, I did not look forward at all to having to face the Yanks in the playoffs. I expect you'll be right there next year, too.
So you like rigged things?
I wish you were on our side, instead of the foul-mouthed children that populate our threads. Reasonablness is out of fashion, apparently. Anyway, great year for the Yankees, and I agree that I can see them improving with smarter management and motivation. That is very scary.
