The classic Captain pose

Finally tonight, enjoy this shot Derek Jeter.

Two comments as well:

Joe Girardi: “It feels great. We had a lot of kids mature, we had a lot of people step up. We had a lot of people have great years, MVP-type years, Cy Young-type years. We got a lot out of this year. But this is only step one.”

A.J. Burnett: “This is why I came here, moments like this. We’re feeling good right now. But we ain’t done.”

A.J. is in the air now, I believe, headed back to Arkansas to be with his father. Bill Burnett is having triple-bypass surgery tomorrow.

    Good luck to the Burnett family.

    Best wishes to Mr. Burnett.

    Now how about a pic of what Papi was up to after the game?

  3. Wait till the ALDS September 27th, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    My thoughts and prayers are with Bill Burnett.

    He’s somewhere downing one of those special shakes.

  5. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    That’s my favorite pic out of all that I’ve seen today…..classic and it says it all.

    Central CT Yankee, the link you posted to a pic of Jete and Alex (from the Daily News) in an earlier thread is broken…..

  6. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Prayers are with AJ and his family.

  7. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Absolutely – best wishes to AJ, his dad and the family.

  15. Azaz September 27th, 2009 at 8:36 pm

    i hate when the games get completely meaningless like they are now

  16. Benny Blanco September 27th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    All the best to papa AJ. Does anyone else have the feeling that AJ might be scary good this postseason?

  17. A NUMBER ONE September 27th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Great shot. Should be framed and hung somewhere.

  18. Pris September 27th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    Aj is a good person, I hope his dad comes out surgery well.
    Is that why AJ shave his head?

  19. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    That AJ MIGHT be scary good this postseason?

    Sure, why not.

  20. Terry from NH September 27th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Praying for you AJ.. Things will get better and you will come back and dominate game 3.. If that is his turn.

  21. Alan September 27th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    All the best success to Bill Burnett and a full recovery.

    A.J. will have lots of incentive to pitch his best for his dad.

    Thumbs up ….

    “Now how about a pic of what Papi was up to after the game?”

    :)

    I hadn’t gotten to read the local on-line Projo today so decided to look at it a short while ago. Lo and behold, no word about a Yankee clinch!!! I’m sure that’s to give Sean McAdam more time to think up a creative twist that might put the Sux in a good light, a la Shaughnessey. I was relieved to see, though, that they did manage to get the score from the meaningful Pats game today!

    :D

  23. trisha - OPPC lifetime member and a believer in Ortiz karma September 27th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    My thoughts and prayers are with AJ and his dad. My dad had a triple bypass and it’s not a real easy recovery, though the surgery itself is thought of as pretty routine these days. Hopefully his dad is in good health otherwise going into it.

  24. Medical Hair Restoration September 27th, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    ESPN is showing the game again. I was too busy watching the Giants and Jets earlier to catch the early innings. Excellent job of ESPN to give Yankees fans another chance to see it.

    I just saw Molina allow a wild pitch by Andy. I know Jose Molina is on this team for defense and his handling of pitchers, but it seems like sometimes he can be very lazy behind the plate on wild pitches/passed balls. As I have seen more of him recently, it has become more noticeable. However, I think when he gets put in during different situations in the postseason, I will not see that from him.

  25. Medical Hair Restoration September 27th, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    My apologies, Best wishes to A.J. and Bill. I cannot imagine what he was feeling in the clubhouse today during the celebration.

  26. Wolf In Pinstripes September 27th, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    Prayers for Bill Burnett and the whole family.

  27. pat September 27th, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Seems like the celebration was raucous- there are pics of Jeter, Mo, CC and other veterans acting like kids too- and then turned more reflective with Girardi, Alex, AJ and Andy’s interviews.

  28. talltenor September 27th, 2009 at 9:16 pm

    Godspeed to AJ and to his father.

  29. Steve from binghamton. Ny September 27th, 2009 at 9:19 pm

    Yankees al champs bestwishes to the Burnett family

  30. Jeremy September 27th, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    I think that A.J. is going to have a good postseason. Last year he came up big against the Yankees and Red Sox. I heard that he retuned his mechanics by watching what he did last year which explains his comeback. The Yankees have a good rotation that can carry them to the World Series.

  31. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    Our prayers tonight are with AJ and his family.

  33. Bill Porter September 27th, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    Boy that is a classic Captain pose. It’s probably the way I’m always going to remember him. I’m glad I won’t have to wait 30 years to realize that I’ll never ever see another one quite like him again. I know now that I never will. What a joy it is that he is ours. I know now what my grandfather saw in Gehrig and DiMaggio and why he couldn’t bring himself to even compare them to the players I thought were great ones in the 60′s and 70′s. This was a very good day.

  34. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    To win the Division, clinch home field advantage and do it by sweeping the Red Sox? It’s been years since Yankee fans have had a better day. Tomorrow’s lineup should be a hoot. Joe can empty the bench to start the game. Let’s hope there’s no complaining here! lol.The best team in baseball is going to be fresh as a daisy when the playoffs start. That’s bad news for the rest of their opponents.

    It’s very easy to see the Angels take out the Sox in no more than 4. The Angels are a much more rounded team. The 2009 Boston Red Sox are a below .500 road team with no home field advantage. The Angels are going to exploit the weak armed catchers from Beantown and embarrass them just like the Yanks did.

    Unfortunately for Pete, his post season coverage is going to be short. Here’s hoping he stops back to say hello after his team is finished.

  35. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! September 27th, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    All the best to A.J. and his family…

  36. Barrows September 27th, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Just for back from the game. It was an amazing game to be at and let me say this, the stadium was certainly feeling it.

    IF you watch those games on tv and don’t think they’re packed, keep in mind a lot of us from the upper deck walked down and took it all in from the field level.

  37. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! September 27th, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    Division foes felled…

    A chamapagne coronation…

    We’re kings of the East!!!!!

    Nailed?

    You mean Erin Andrews ;)

  39. Abdababdaserser September 27th, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    Reggie has been around quite a bit this season. It seems more than I’ve seen him in years past.

    Great celebration, nice to do it on a sweep of their rivals.

    They were showing a little fade, but the series win in Anaheim really put a charge into them. The real season begins soon. Clinching now as opposed to last week can turn out to be a plus. If they clinch too early it means playing meaningless games and a different mindset for a while.

    The players have been getting decent rest leading up to this point, and while I am sure that there are going to be lesser lineups up for the last week of the regular season, the regular players will still get in playing time. You want them fresh, not rusty.

    My prayers go out to the Burnett family. While heart operations have come a long way there is still risk. May this surgery go exceeding well so AJ can enjoy this post season experience.

  40. chambliss September 27th, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    There should be a special edition of guess the lineup tomorrow, as it should be a challenge.

    What a spectacular day.

    Girardi and the team put the hammer down this weekend. No B lineups, no crap.

    Lesson learned from 2004. You get your opponent down, step on his throat. That is exactly what the Yankees did today.

    The new magic number, the truly magic number, is 11 (3+4+4).

  41. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 10:16 pm

    How about a guess the line up for tomorrow? No need to put the batting order just who is playing where.

    1b- Juan
    2b- Pena
    ss- Hairston
    3b- Hinski
    C- Cisco
    lf- Gardy
    cf- Guzman
    rf- Shelley
    dh- I have no clue!

  45. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    jennifer,

    Hairston is injured still and hopes to be playing by the end of the week. I think they oughtta make Cano play just cuz he made that boneheaded error in the 9th lol. Why not let Tex dh and give him a shot for 40 homers?

  46. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    Ironic – the board is very quiet on the night the Yankees clinch the AL East. On a night they lose, the place is ridiculously busy…….

  47. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    True, So one regular will have to play. But I still think he’ll give Cano the day off. He hasn’t had many. He’s played 154 games.

  48. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    Arod will probably get one or two more fulls days off but I know some LoHudders would like to give him a chance to get to 100 RBIs.

  49. Joe from Long Island September 27th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Well, tomorrow’s the last game on my partial season plan. I was wondering if I would get to see them clinch while I was there, but seeing them crush Boston was worth it.

  50. pat September 27th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    Home game with paying customers tomorrow so I don’t think they’ll sit all the starters. They’ll save that for Tampa.

    Maybe Cervelli catches and Tex at DH but I think most regulars will probably be playing.

  51. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    Enjoy the game tomorrow Joe. Did you manage to snatch any playoff tix? I’ll be there for the 1st games of the ALDS and Game 2 of the ALCS.I havent heard when they are going to have the pre sale for World Series tix yet.

  52. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Betsy,

    Youre right about how quiet it’s been. There’s been busier nights when we lost to Kansas City.

  53. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    The quiet is not unusual, it’s Yom Kippur and many LoHudders have a lot to attone for.

  54. crawdaddy September 27th, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    “Home game with paying customers tomorrow so I don’t think they’ll sit all the starters. They’ll save that for Tampa.

    Maybe Cervelli catches and Tex at DH but I think most regulars will probably be playing.”

    Girardi already stated he’s going to take advantage of Thursday’s off day to give guys two days off so expect some players to rested on Wednesday and those that play Wednesday’s game to have Friday off.

  55. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    I forgot about Yom Kippur. That does explain a lot of the regulars not being here.

  56. Abdababdaserser September 27th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    “dh- I have no clue!”

    They can bring me in to fill that role. :D

    I don’t think they will rest everyone throughout the rest of these games. You want them fresh, not comatose.

    Tomorrow might have an interesting lineup mainly from some players not being sober enough, though that may mean having to play the regular starters. lol.

  57. GreenBeret7 September 27th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    The KC pitchers will be Hochaver (MON), Lerew (TUE) and Tejada (WED). At least they are scheduled to pitch. Looks like the Rays rotation will be Price (FRI), Neimann (SAT) and Davis (SUN). The Rays rotation might be the most likely to change.

  58. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    LOL I’m Jewish and I forgot about Yom Kippur…….but then, I have nothing to atone for. I didn’t even go to temple for Rosh Hashanaha….I guess I should atone for that, lol

  59. m September 27th, 2009 at 10:48 pm

    Reading the times recap, the Yankees sprayed more than they consumed. 300 bottles in 20 minutes.

    And Cano and Jeter are only the 5th set of Yankees to each get 200 hits in a season.

  60. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    Trying to figure out post season roster. I am at 28 guys.

    91 Alfredo Aceves
    99 Brian Bruney
    34 A.J. Burnett
    62 Joba Chamberlain
    48 Phil Coke
    41 Chad Gaudin
    65 Phil Hughes
    43 Damaso Marte
    46 Andy Pettitte
    42 Mariano Rivera
    30 David Robertson
    52 CC Sabathia
    29 Francisco Cervelli
    26 Jose Molina
    20 Jorge Posada
    24 Robinson Cano
    17 Jerry Hairston Jr.
    2 Derek Jeter
    19 Ramiro Pena
    13 Alex Rodriguez
    25 Mark Teixeira
    53 Melky Cabrera
    18 Johnny Damon
    11 Brett Gardner
    47 Freddy Guzman
    14 Eric Hinske
    33 Nick Swisher
    55 Hideki Matsui

    Who is out?

  61. Joe from Long Island September 27th, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    Drive 4-5 – We got tix to Game 1 of ALDS and Home Game 3 of the ALCS. My friend, with whom we share the partial package, gets first dibs this year as to which game he wants. We’ll need to figure out our WS plans. (Notice my optimism.)

  62. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 10:51 pm

    pat- I think Joe is more concerned about giving guys rest. Maybe he won’t rest everyone as I thought. But at least the big guns.

  63. Erica - always OPPC September 27th, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    I have 13 shows saved on my DVR. Have I ever mentioned I am a TV addict??

    I would talk more if I wasn’t desperately trying to get caught up

  64. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    Was it your birthday this weekend too? A belated happy birthday! You’ve had quite a nice weekend now havnt you?:)

  65. Erica - always OPPC September 27th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Jennifer-

    You only get 25 guys. Who do you want to cut?

  66. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    Erica, Don’t know who to cut.

  67. m September 27th, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    minny @ detroit coming up. that’s the series everyone will be watching.

    Yankees, Cardinals, and Dodgers have clinched berths.

    But Atlanta’s only 2 back of the Rockies in the loss column for the wild card.

  68. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    Joe from Long Island ,

    I share your optimism my friend. This is the first Yankee team in years that I really feel confident in. The surly Sheffields and Johnsons have been replaced by the looser CC’s and Tex. See ya at the Series.

  69. m September 27th, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    -Cervelli
    -Bruney or Gaudin
    -Sergio

  70. Drive 4-5 September 27th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    I’d be surprised to see Mitre on the postseason roster. I would not be surprised to see the speedster Guzman take his place.

  71. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    Drive 4-5, yes it was, thanks! It was a very good week and a good day as my Bears won as well.

    Did anyone watch the Ken Burns special on the National Parks? I taped it tonight – it’s supposed to be a spectacular series. I was planning on watching it, but I couldn’t really concentrate – I kept thinking about the Yankees, lol

  72. Joe from Long Island September 27th, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    Time to turn in.

    Drive 4-5 – agreed. See ya at the Series.

    Have a good night, everybody. Theeeeeeeee Yankees Win!!!

  74. Giuseppe Franco September 27th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    I’m still wondering if the Yanks have beaten any good teams this season.

    The media, Pete most definitely included, couldn’t blow that horn loud enough at the All Star Break.

    Funny how things change when you have a little patience.

  75. jennifer September 27th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    m- The reason I have Cisco on there is because Joe hinted on the Joe G show that he could take him.

  76. FYI September 27th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Here’s a funny quote from Boston manager Terry Francona. He was asked if he thought the Yankees were motivated by not making the playoffs last year and replied: “I think I actually made the comment that they’d get aggravated and spend a billion dollars. I was half right. They have a good team and that’s an unbelievable regular season, especially what they’ve done since Alex came back.”

  77. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    There’s a rumor that they’re going to leave Damon, Matusi, and Molina off the postseason rosters to start the transition to next season.

    I kid.

    :(

  78. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    GB, that sin may be almost unforgivable, lol

  79. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    “…many LoHudders have a lot to attone for.”

    Yikes, there’s something for me to atone for.

  80. m September 27th, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    jennifer,

    Really? I thought they would take him, too. But I was soundly vetoed here.

    If Joba pitches well, then I think they leave Gaudin home and let Aceves caddy for him.

    If they Cervelli, then another pitcher has to be taken off or Guzman has to be taken off.

  81. m September 27th, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    Pitchers:

    CC
    AJ
    Andy
    Joba
    Rivera
    Hughes
    Aceves
    Robertson
    Coke
    Bruney :?

    With 10 pitchers, there’s no room for Gaudin or Damaso.

    Joe G. hinted at the longer series saying you can use your whole bullpen in a game?

  82. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) September 27th, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    “And Cano and Jeter are only the 5th set of Yankees to each get 200 hits in a season”

    m – that’s pretty interesting. Who were the other 4?

    Maybe Mattingly and Winfield when they were battling for the batting title?

    Gehrig + Ruth?
    Dimaggio and ?

  83. haiku-man September 27th, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    -FYI

    The really funny read is Dan Shaughnessy at http://www.boston.com They’re not showing all their cards,the comment section alone is worth the read.the Red Slops fans aren’t buying his crap,and let him know it. Some funny stuff,but honest assessment of their Red Slops team.

  84. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    What would Cervelli’s purpose be?

    Not a sarcastic question.

  85. Giuseppe Franco September 27th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    I can’t see Cervelli making the postseason roster.

    I could see Boston carrying three catchers with someone who can play defense in the late innings and can throw, but the Yanks won’t do it unless Posada’s stiff neck or whatever else is really bothering him.

    There’s no legitimate reason to do that.

  86. m September 27th, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Just watched that AJ/AP video. Andy has such a way with words. AJ looked like a teenage kid that got pulled into the principal’s office. And they both deflected on the “Which one of you wants to start Game 2?” question.

    Better be safe than sorry, Betsy. You don’t want to be standing there one day, and this booming voice that sounds like Bob Sheppard says, “Betsy, I see that you have yet to atone for the constant worrying about my boys in pinstripes. What are you going to do about this?”

  88. Abdababdaserser September 27th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    A 28 yard sack? Not that I care much about this Ind/Az game, but Warner running away like that for a 28 yard loss is pathetic. Why not just lay down? You can at least limit the damage.

  89. m September 27th, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    I wish the postseason started tomorrow.

  90. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    “And Cano and Jeter are only the 5th set of Yankees to each get 200 hits in a season”

    m – that’s pretty interesting. Who were the other 4?

    Maybe Mattingly and Winfield when they were battling for the batting title?

    Gehrig + Ruth?
    Dimaggio and ?

    It came to me while I was watering plants. Perhaps Girardi hinted at taking Cervelli because Jorge might be worse off than they’re letting on.

    It’s been reported as a stiff neck? But didn’t TBS say something about a lat? It’s more likely they’re wrong. But if it’s a lat, that’s not good.

    Anyway, Girardi could be trying to foil us. Shall we have an ALDS roster contest? Last day of the regular season?

    the ynaks pen is much better, robertson will pitch monday.

  131. SportsGeek September 28th, 2009 at 6:39 am

    Yeahh!!… Congrats to the Yankees. A great season! Everybody made significant contributions!

    I still hold out hope that some Yankees will help the team stats by getting more RBI’s and HR’s.

    1. The most “critical” is the team reaching 243 HR’s (to set the team’s record).
    … 8 more HR’s are needed.

    2. The next most “critical” is Jeter reaching 20 HR’s, and with that Jeter or Cabrera reaching 70 RBI’s.
    … That would give the team 8 players with 20+ HR’s and 70+ RBI’s.

    3. Next would be Swisher and Damon reaching 80 RBI’s. (This one should be pretty easy to reach. Only 1 RBI each needed.)
    … That would give the team 7 players with 20+ HR’s and 80+ RBI’s.

    4. It would also be “fun” if Cano and Damon reached 25 HR’s (only 1 HR each needed).
    … That would give the team 6 players with 25+ HR’s and 80+ RBI’s.

    Teixeira… RBI= 120… +2 HR= 40
    Arod…..+7 RBI= 100… +2 HR= 30
    Matsui….. RBI= 90…. +2 HR= 30
    Swisher..+1 RBI= 80…. +3 HR= 30
    Damon….+1 RBI= 80…. +1 HR= 25
    Cano……. RBI= 80…. +1 HR= 25
    Posada….. RBI= 81…. +3 HR= 25
    Jeter….+5 RBI= 70…. +3 HR= 20
    Cabrera..+3 RBI= 70…. +2 HR= 15

    I know that none of these are necessary. But, it’s cool seeing the team reach so many records.

    enjoy your last few days with the blog & good luck with yer new job

    you earned it my friend

    you created a nice community here that has become well known

    you were always approachable & interacted with us & made us feel like we had a direct link to the team like no other

    i have not regretted many things in my life but one thing i do regret is not going to any of the aaa outings you put together

  133. bru September 28th, 2009 at 7:33 am

    do we bring back matsui,damon,pettitte?

    we still have young guys like melky,gardner,ajax waiting in the wings

    i would bring all 3 back as long as the money is fair

    7 million a year.

  134. Doreen September 28th, 2009 at 7:46 am

    bru -

    My opinion on that is that compared to what’s out there as an alternative to those three, the Yankees will be interested in bringing them back. It will come down to terms, of course. Ajax probably isn’t ready just about yet.

    The reason I think they’ll be back is because they are a known quantity – they know how to play, and they play well as Yankees. The only question mark, I guess, is whether they believe it is worth it to have a guy who can only DH in Matsui. But he is such a professional hitter, I don’t see that as a drawback. And I am of the opinion that they don’t need the DH as a merry-go-round.

    Another reason is that Joe Girardi has proved to be quite adept at rotating his players to keep them fresh and give them adequate at-bats. And the players, out of their own mouths, have “bought into” his system.

    So it will come down to years and money. :)

  135. upstate kate September 28th, 2009 at 7:54 am

    Wow, what a great win, clinching the AL east, HFA and 100 wins and not to mention sweeping the Sox.

    Too bad our YES guys didn’t have the game. It got annoying listening to how ESPN changed the game to an afternoon game (which it originally was), how many HRs had been hit, and how expensive the seats were, same old same old. Also Miller talking about how the guys weren’t stealing on Tek yesterday…hello…its wet and slippery conditions, why would you risk someone getting hurt.

  136. pat September 28th, 2009 at 7:54 am

    I’m a sucker for redemption stories and it’s easy to want to root for someone who cares so much. Fingers crossed Bruney has gotten back on track.

    I’m with you. I hate that we don’t have the choice about watching our own YES team broadcast the games. It really stinks when your team wins and the Fox/ESPN team has zero enthusiasm. Zero. Like it killed them.

    Also, I’m really happy for Bruney. I hope yesterday’s outing gives him the mental confidence to push him past the rough road he’s had lately.

  142. Ed - campaigning for Josh Willingham (it worked for Gaudin) September 28th, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Unfortunately, I can only see 3 more games on YES this year. Extra Innings blacks out the broadcast here when they play the Rays, then it is on to TBS/Fox for the playoffs.

    I don’t know if anybody else had this issue, but all summer the Fox baseball telecasts looked like it was a webcast. The fast action, like pitches and hard hit balls, were awful. However, this past Sat game looked the way it was supposed to. I am hoping they finally did fix it in time for the playoffs.

  153. Betsy September 28th, 2009 at 8:50 am

    Why would Boston players be in denial? They’re going to make the playoffs and they have a shot to get to the big dance………..Any team that’s in the playoffs controls their own destiny and it doesn’t matter whether you’ve gotten there by winning the division or the wild card.

    That says it all you need to know with the red soxs propaganda machine. Joe has been giving guys rest all year long. Two days off whenever possible. Joe wanted to sew up the AL East. He now has 6 games 7 days to rest players for the post season.

    According to Wiki….

    A “Parkway” is…

    -A type of road
    -A broad landscaped thoroughfare; especially : one from which trucks and other heavy vehicles are excluded.
    (i.e. NJ’s Garden State Parkway)

    -A roadway in a park : a landscaped thoroughfare connecting parks
    -An expressway located on a strip of land legally constituting a public park and therefore not open to heavy vehicles

    The Yanks were built to mash at Yankee Stadium.

    And Boston was built to mash at Fenway.

    The difference between these teams is the Yanks score runs in every other ballpark as well. The Red Sox do not.

    Don’t be surprised if the Angels beat the Red Sox in the ALDS. Don’t care if they’ve had their number in recent years.

    “They held us down in this ballpark,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “Teixeira’s [homer yesterday] would have probably just been a fly ball in our ballpark, but it went out here. And we had the same opportunity to do the same thing, but unfortunately we didn’t.”

    Really? does he forget that he has a lot of outs that go for doubles in his joke of a park? Or that 250 right field that yields homeruns? or that 2 foot wall? SHOVE IT TERRY! I am sick and tired of hearing how classy that jerk is. He isn’t classy!

    Sore Losers. I guess the weekend series wasn’t meaningless at all.

    The “Bucky Dent Homer” would have been a fly out at any other ball park.

    Jennifer- I am still waiting to hear from my Red Sox lovin sister to get her take on it. Francona did sound whiny.

    NYY626- I know what you mean, it is hard to settle down and actually get some work done.

    Just because Jeter and Arod don’t act outwardly insane like Swish ( and this is no knock on him!), doesn’t mean they don’t know how to have a good time. Please see the cover of today’s Daily News. Its awesome!
    ==============================

    I saw that. But I saw Jeter’s post game interview on ESPN where he was asked if the team has good chemistry, and in his usual android monotone he said no, it’s just that the pitching is better.

    Here’s an article giving Cashman some credit for this team.

    I think the chemistry has been changing for the last few years, since they got Damon and Melky and Cano came up. The bad chemistry years were the aging players w/ attitude years.

    The fact of the matter is that the Sox suck on the road. Look at their splits:

    .858 OPS at home

    .753 OPS on the Road

    Yet, all we here about is NYS and the advantage the Yankees have there..

    Winning = chemistry

    Even Jeter said it yesterday on the postgame.

    Teams don’t have nearly as much fun when their losing.

  175. Just call me Mr. Clutch September 28th, 2009 at 9:35 am

    Stevie, Jeter said it easy to have fun when you are winning. If players were acting like goof balls and they were losing a ton of games I bet the fans would be getting pretty ticked off.

    Also, the pitching is better. It isn’t chemistry that made the team better, it was getting key players, such as Teixeira, CC and AJ.

    While the characters can help keep others from getting too tense, there needs to be a balance.

    What is your problem with Jeter being Jeter? It is how he has been throughout his career.

  176. jennifer September 28th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    I know winning breeds chemistry. But they were winning up until game 5 of the 2004 alcs. Do you think that team had tons of fun? They hold cranky old man Brown, Sheffield, etc on the team.

    =========================================

    Absolutely!

    You subtract Kevin Brown, Randy Johnson, Sheffield, Pavano and Add Swisher, CC, Mr Pie, Robbie.

    Like the MasterCard logo in the background. Feel free to work in the priceless bit.

    Alriiiiiight!

    I like that Matsui’s the guy who got the game winning RBI that clinched the division, after everyone thought he wasn’t worth keeping around.

    I hope they give him another year or two (or year plus option) as DH because he’s producing a the plate as much as he was before he got hurt.

    Any of the aging core players can still field their positions (Posada for example) and are a year or two away from needing to become DH. Why not bring Matsui back for the DH role in the meantime? Hopefully he and the team can agree on a fair salary. He’s not an all-star OF anymore so he shouldn’t expect that kind of money, but he can still hit. That’s the kind of player you use for a DH.

    On a side note, if I was manager (yeah right) of ANY team I’d put it in the young players heads before the division clinching celebration: After winning the WS is the ONLY real celebration, and you’ll look like morons celebrating the division like it was the WS. Even more so if you don’t win the WS. Celebrate a little, but act like you have it in perspective.

    As a quadruple bypass patient 12 cyears ago, I can relate to AJ & his dad. And I’m still here to talk about it. Good luck & Godspeed.

  181. Sox-tastic for Playoff run September 28th, 2009 at 10:03 am

    //sure that’s to give Sean McAdam more time to think up a creative twist that might put the Sux in a good light,//

    McAdam doesn’t work at the ProJo anymore doofess. Enjoy your AL East title, because just like 2004, that’s all you’re getting. Your team with it’s one pitcher won’t get by Detroit….much to your shagrin

    You’ve thought that you have successfully trolled us, but your ‘killer line’ is spoiled by such an awkward misspelling… much to your chagrin

    Hey what’s a doofess, doofus?

  184. Jones September 28th, 2009 at 10:39 am

    I feel for him. My dad had quad bypass. So scary. Every time someone came into the waiting room, we had chills going up & down our spine. Extremely tough situation. God Bless.

    I find it funny to read comments about the young players (many of whom will probably not make it to the post season roster) “whooping it up” at the celebration. Personally, I think anyone who is on the active roster SHOULD take pride in clinching the Division Title–it was a team effort. Most of these guys (veterans included) may never have this experience again. Some of the young guys or the journeymen might never even see the majors again. Let them all enjoy this moment–even if their own ride on this train ends in 7 days. It is special. I keep having to remind myself of how special it is, in spite of the number of times this team has had the honor of experiencing it in my lifetime. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a champagne moment during his career.

    Hopefully there will be three more before the year is done.
