    Would have been amazing to end a game in July. But in this situation, just wow. Had to measure it out perfectly and throw a seed.

    And why is the right field fence only ~245 feet from home plate?

    And why is Bret Gardner's head shaped so weirdly?

    Are you kidding me? Ruining Rudy's night is basically a cocaine-fueled night of sex for me.

    For those of you killing Vazquez for pitch selection - Kimbrel was throwing NO fastballs for strikes until maybe what - pitch 21 of the inning?

    I'm guessing Vazquez realized his command was WAY off when warming off and realized he had to get a curve-ball heavy outing out of him.

    Gardner: "They outhit us & they outpitched us & they outplayed us. U have to tip your caps to them. They didnt win 108 games during the season by just being a decent team. They have a really good team over there. I felt like we could beat them & we didn't play our best baseball."

    He's already taking the blows: https://nypost.com/2018/10/10/red-sox-were-just-better-and-now-questions-begin-for-yankees/

    (all emphasis mine)

    Caption on the lead photo: "Giancarlo Stanton wears a dejected expression in the dugout after striking out twice with two men on in the ninth inning of the Yankees' 4-3 season-ending loss Tuesday night."

    And lastly an amazing stat I haven't heard yet:

    Rudy has turned from a good mayor to a Trump kiss butt. The Rudy of the 90's was different.

    Dombrowski teams have won the division over the Yankees all 3 years he has been here.

    Dombrowski teams have defeated the Yankees in the 06 ALDS, 11 ALDS, 12 ALCS and 18 ALDS (combined playoff record 13-4 vs NYY).

    Thank you SoSH! Just spent the last hour reading the last thousand of so posts from the ninth inning on. Amazing roller coaster ride with some true classic posts! I hope everyone is sleeping soundly while I fly to Philly.

    Love the Triple Crown of Dirty Water, Series Win and Yankee Elimination Day!

    Watching Kinsler’s double over Gardner’s head (think about how hard that ball must have been hit to get it over that orb), the discrepancy between the Red Sox defense and the MFY is striking. Gardner took a circuitous route on that play that would have rivaled the Mayflower in 1620. Totally misplayed that fly. Brutal. Would McCutcheon have done better?

    I'm not sure what CC was bitching about, maybe he just needed a Snickers. Looks like two missed strikes (upper right part of the zone) and one called that he didn't deserve (lower left).

    It occurs to me...the Yankees got to live out their own version of "Green Fields of the Mind" in the 9th. Dame Mutability 1, MFY 0. Delicious.

    No doubt his Mother had to let out one side of all his hats when he was a kid, that dome is other worldly.

    Love how that stooge butchered that ball Kinsler hit, fuck him.

    I actually think that’s what he was trying to say. He gets “no little enjoyment”—meaning he gets “big enjoyment”.

    You know, it’s probably a topic for a different thread but you’re right and it’s apparent in conversations between generations. The older fans have this weird negative, irrationally worrisome perspective.

    I noticed he didn't get those two call during the game. The reason probably being, and Darling pointed this out at the time of one of them, was that Sanchez set up low and inside and he hit the total opposite part of the strike zone. Sanchez had to come up out of his crouch and reach for both of those pitches which probably affected Hernandez's view of the pitch.

    Once again, while Anderson is your garden variety PBP guy, Darling, for all his flaws (mainly his affiliation with the '86 White Lines Brigade) is a great color guy. He says a lot of stupid stuff too but his insights into pitching are pretty damn good.

    The Arod = choker serves 2 purposes for the Yankee Fan
    1. Elevates the already grossly over-rated Jeter.
    2. Allows them to hide the fact his HGH fueled bat carried them to #27

    They even have commemorative 09 merch with team pics omitting him. He had 6hr and 18 rbi in the 09 post season.
