ALCS Game 3: Yankees 0, Rangers 8

How do you get upset over losing a game that was basically decided by one hanging breaking ball in the top of the first inning? Both pitchers were brilliant, and the Yankees lost.

Let's try a one sentence game recap.

Yankee Thesaurus:

Cliff Lee: bulletproof, impassable, impregnable, indomitable, insuperable, inviolable, invulnerable, irresistible, powerful, strong, unassailable, unattackable, unbeatable, unconquerable, undefeatable, unsurmountable, untouchable , unyielding

Andy Pettitte: baronial, brilliant, eminent, exalted, glorious, grand, grandiose, high-minded, high-ranking, highfalutin', honorable, imposing, impressive , lofty, lordly, magnificent, majestic, monumental, pompous, regal, resplendent, stately, superb, venerable

TBS Broadcast: adulator, backscratcher, backslapper, bootlicker, brownnoser, doormat, fan, fawner, flatterer, flunky, groupie, groveler, handshaker, hanger-on, lackey, minion, parasite, puppet, slave, sychophant

Buoyed by a bruising first inning drive, the sychophants spent the rest of the game glorifying the indomitable one while ignoring the equally impressive performance of the venerable pinstriped pitcher; while the baseball world salivated over Halladay-Lincecum, one pitch put the Yankees on the wrong side of a gem.

Play of the Game: Hamilton's homer- nothing else was close.

Comments of the Game: lolol, Ozone, longtimelistener, nyyrocks29
