Game Thread: New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays, Sunday September 30th

The Yankees refuse to make this easy. Rather than focus on who the Yankees should have beaten based on the match up (Ricky Romero, cough, cough) I want to emphasize the need to win big games, easy competition or not. The Yankees don’t want to find themselves in a sudden death playoff. The team hasn’t inspired confidence that they can handle that kind of game. Yet, they are on a collision course for such a game because they can’t find the killer instinct when they need it. Yesterday’s game called for the killer instinct. The Yankees didn’t have it. And they don’t have first place anymore either. Well done boys. Phil Hughes faces off against Henderson Alvarez today. Enjoy.

    One more, guys. (Well, at least.)

  2. Phil C

    Tied up on a WP! SWEEEEEEEEEET!

    • Phil C

      A VERY short sweet feeling!

  3. Professor Longnose


    But it’s tied. They gotta pull this out.

  4. Phil C

    Pawtucket scored 2 runs, but still trail 6-3 bot 7th. Lung Disease up 3-1 bot 4th.

  5. smurfy

    depends on which two. oh, ok.

  6. Phil C

    Come on Boone, your a union member throw a called strike!

    • Professor Longnose

      He heard you.

      • Phil C

        I should had repeated it, apparently he has a short attention span.

  7. smurfy

    I wanna see that BJ fan, smiling so toothily now.

  8. Professor Longnose

    Keep hitting, guys.

  9. Professor Longnose

    No one on for Granderson, his best situation.

  10. Phil C

    Well, the middle option of the three true outcomes for Granderson.

  11. Professor Longnose

    Hmm, it’s Martin. He’s hot. Not a terrible bunter, though.

  12. Phil C

    Girardi should pinch run for Raul. He’s cool, but not real fast.

  13. Phil C

    Hear me roar, I am Lyon!

  14. Professor Longnose

    OK, everybody sing we me on the chorus:

    Get the run in!

  15. Phil C

    Noon-W, Noon-E

  16. Professor Longnose

    Yes! We get the minimum acceptable result!

  17. Professor Longnose

    Now they pinch run? Huh?

    • Phil C

  19. smurfy

    wow, excellent mojo!

  20. Professor Longnose

    OK, Itchy, cap it off.

  21. Professor Longnose

    Itchy should have pulled that one.

  22. Phil C

    Top 9th, Pawtucket’s last chance.

    • Professor Longnose

      Forget it. Stop rooting for them and get in the mood to CRUSH them.

      • Phil C

        Game over. Yanks MUST win!

  23. smurfy

    great curve to finish the 8th, by Robbie. His fb is looking like 95, too, even if the gun says 92. Or maybe it’s the spots he hits.

    • Phil C

      C-Dick will be mad if he hits Spot.

      • smurfy

        what? did Spot get away from Jane? Not Robbie, though.

  24. Phil C

    Professor, if your chorus gets more Yankee runs I’ll rent you a dress for the Grammy’s.

  25. smurfy

    Alright, a little bingle. Now for a quick… bunt?

    • Phil C

      Bingle, bangle, bungle,
      Get some runs in the jungle

  26. Professor Longnose

    Cano! That was beautiful!

  27. Phil C

    Did I just see what I saw?

    • Professor Longnose

      No. You were dreaming.

  28. Tj

    Let’s break this open!

    • Professor Longnose

      I like that idea. No use blowing an opportunity and feeling lousy about it, even if they win.

  29. Phil C

    Come on Curtis, I want some grand standing!

  30. Professor Longnose

    Granderson got a two-run single? That’s almost as amazing as Cano’s bunt!

  31. Phil C

    Yipee Yay Kai Yeah!!

    • smurfy

      if you meet me,
      have some sympathy, some courtesy
      and some taste

      • Phil C

        Will you take 2 out of 3?

  32. Professor Longnose

    Root for the Mariners today. Important game for the Yankees.

  33. Phil C

    Sori, now just stop this nonsense. Get frigging outs!

  34. Professor Longnose

    Come on, Soriano. Relax and get it done.

  35. Professor Longnose

    Got to pay your dues if you want to sing the blues.

  36. Tj

    This will b a crushing lose if it happens

    • Professor Longnose

      IT WON’T!

  37. Tj


  38. Phil C

    That’s better. One more out and you can untuck that shirt.

    • Professor Longnose

      Does he do that in non-save situations?

  39. Tj

    • Professor Longnose
