Nice. Hope you don't have to get up early tomorrow.

I am sorry Liverpool couldn't beat Arsenal's kids this evening. Best of luck in the derby this weekend.

Thanks and unlucky against the kids, they're a pesky bunch. Hopefully Saturday is a win for both the Phils and Spurs, would be awesome if so :D.

I love that this thing where National League is now a synonym for bad in the announcer's book.

We're three wins away from winning the 5th World Series this decade for the National League. Suck my $#@! balls, Harold Reynolds. Go molest some more interns.


i cursed at the tv for a minute when i saw this

Utley's second homer--you know, the one that went deep into the left field seats--was on MOTHER #$!&@ 0-2 COUNT

HOW THE #$!&@ IS THAT A #$!&@ FASTBALL COUNT YOU HACK PIECE OF #$!&@
no offense but you are everything that's wrong with America

Favorite picture. Gotta love the NYY logo in the background.


Upside down no less, which, if it were an American flag, would be the signal for distress.

I'm sure it's in the thread at some point but keith law tweet from last night that had me chuckling:

Meanwhile, Jason Knapp just reached for the remote to turn up the volume and shredded his labrum.

Actually, I think the bunt was a good idea. It was just poorly executed. A half decent bunt would have gotten Rollins on base. Given that CC is a good pitcher, it's at least worth a try. Jimmy got on base twice last night. He didn't have a terrible game.

Except that it doesn't give the opponent great field position if it fails.

It was so enjoyable to see Lee having a good time that it made the game really, absolutely fun to watch. Everything was going his way, although he missed the first two behind the back attempts. I mean really, a ho-hum and a behind the back catch in your first world series appearance? I also liked that he dropped the F-bomb when Rollins threw it away.

Utley being just so matter of fact jacking two after being ask ed if he is hurt, how hurt is he, etc. was awesome.

Now that these two set the tone it is time for the rest of the team get going. The Yankees are to professional to get rattled, but I have to think that CC has to be having some doubts when he pitches against the Phis.

All the team needs to go is play .500 baseball from here on out!

Also, hope this hasn't already been discussed to death, I thought that was one of the best umped games I've ever seen. There were a few homercentric quibbles, but I can't remember a ball/strike call I found egregious

Probably not rattled, per se, but their overall vibe last night looked awful

before their fans started leaving
