Thread: YANKS ARE CHOKING

  1. #1
    Don't be surprised if the Red Sox win this series ... this Yankee team is choking

    This lineup may be a million times more lethal than those that won a four recent WS titles, but those hitters were a million times more clutch than these choking dogs

    There is no other word for what I saw the past two nites ... this Yankee team is flatout choking

    Think about it, over the past two nites this Yankee lineup has made the same bullpen {and starter} they pummeled for a Gazillion runs in Game 3 suddenly look like a collection of Sandy Koufax clones

    8 shutout innings by this bullpen tonite ... who knows how many shutout innings last nite ... and all with Pennant just sitting there for the Yankees to win

    And this Red Sox pen is going on fumes ... and we still can't buy a big hit off this pen when the Pannant is there to be won

    I don't know what you call that, but I have a word for it .... CHOKING

    This Yankees team is choking like dogs ... so I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they finish the job and choke the whole thing away

    Dude this post is way off. Way off. It is disrespectful to the Red Sox. Did you watch the Sox play this season? You know what, they have a pretty good team. And to say that the Yankees are choking is just wrong.

    The Yankees brought their best game the past 2 days and lost. They brought their best game the first 3 and they won. They are up 3 to 2 and the Series is headed back to the Bronx.

    Sometimes the other team has something to say about the outcome!

    The Yankees will win this series. Don't jump just yet.

    I love that the Red Sox are getting into it, but I wont believe they have a chance to win this series until it's tied up at 3-3.

    Until then, go SCHILLING, go ORTIZ, go RED SOX

    Okay, then explain this too me ....

    How do the same hitters break a slew of records for offense off the same bullpen {Arroyo included}, then see the same bullpen for a combined 13 innings of relif over the next two days, WHEN THE PENNANT IS SITTING THERE TO BE WON, and proceed to score ZERO RUNS?

    Same pen {and Arroyo} ... lit them up for 19 runs when they were more rested ... but then proceed to score ZERO RUNS off the same cats over the next 13 innings when they are going on fumes

    How exactly do you explain that?

    I'll tell you how I explain it ....

    Unlike Game 3, these past two nites the Yankees had the champagne on ice ... ONE BIG HIT over the course of those 13 shutout innings by the same guys they pummeled to the tune of 19 runs and the Yankees are heading to the World Series

    They haven't even needed to light them up like that again ... JUST ONE MEASLY RUN {in 13 innings} would have been suffice

    But alas THIS YANKEE TEAM has gotten tighter than a clams @$$ when the money has been on the table, and they have a word for that ... it's called CHOKING

    The end justifies the means. Pop a couple of the blue pills and rest up for tomorrows game.

    Have a little faith. Even the Yankees can&#39;t win everyday.

    I&#39;m deffinitely worried ... cause I see a team that wouldn&#39;t even be in this spot if they weren&#39;t choking beyond belief

    Anyone should be worried about a team that is playing THIS TIGHT {i.e. choking} when the money is on the table

    Yeah, but how can you panic when you are going home??&#33;&#33;

    You are facing a 70% Schilling and most likely a 70% Bronson Arroyo. You need one win. Why the panic??&#33;

    Who do you think will win this series?

    I say the Yankees.

    GJ&H,

    Relax... Seriously, if you told me that the Yankees only needed one game with the last two at home, I would be estatic&#33; Look at it this way, they needed extra innings both times, and now WE get last licks for the next two games. Remember, there&#39;s a reason everyone has gone 0-25 trailing 0-3 in a seven game series.

    GO YANKEES&#33;&#33;&#33;

    How many times do I need to say this ... it&#39;s not about where we are playing and it&#39;s certainly not about which pitchers we are facing {if it were, the Yankees would already be spraying champagne}

    It&#39;s about a team that is playing TIGHTER THAN A CLAMS @&#036;&#036; each time the pennant is there to be won {i.e. Choking} ... and I don&#39;t care if your name is Arod, Sheffield, or MICKY MANTLE ... if you&#39;re gonna play THIS TIGHT when the pennant is on the line, you are absolutely in danger of blowing the whole thing

    What this team has needed the past two nites is a Reggie Jackson ... someone who can calmly step to the plate and deliver the KILL SHOT when the pennant was there to be won ... but thus far we have seen only a collection of CHOKERS who look like they couldn&#39;t score a run in extra innings if the game lasted a THOUSAND INNINGS

    Ham...you are way off here. Matsui, Shef were hitting .500 for the Series. Against a good pitching stuff. Sometimes you make an out.

    You are gonna get pissed at me but you get way to low over this stuff. The Yankees will come home and win it there. This is the Yankees that we are talking about. They have earned our respect. We are not rooting for the Cubs here.

    Earlier this year you started a thread saying that Lofton should be starting in CF over Bernie. Well Joe stuck with Bernie and that seems to have worked out pretty well.

    The Yankees will be fine. They are not going to hit .412 as a team for the series. Hot bats do cool off. The Sox have a good staff. AROD struck out with a guy on 2nd and a chance to drive in an insurance run in the 8th. But AROD always makes outs with RISP. So this is nothing new.

    Let me just say this ....

    No team in the history of MLB has blown a 3-0 lead in the post season ... if this Yankee team accomplishes that feat they will forver be remembered as the greatest choke artists in post season history, and judging by the way they have failed to deliever ONE CLUTCH HIT in 13 innings off a bullpen that was going on fumes in Games 4 & 5, and one they lit up for 19 runs in Game 3, that will be a tag this Yankee team absolutely deserves to wear

    isn&#39;t this all from the same group of yankee fans that were proclaiming the series already over and booking plans for the world series? <_<
