Price vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:10., YES Network

WEATHER: Legitimately nice night outside. Not that it matters.

UMPIRES: HP Joe West, 1B Sam Holbrook, 2B Paul Schrieber, 3B Chad Fairchild

NO MORE THAN ONE: The Yankees are trying to avoid being swept in a series of more than one game for just the third time this season (also May 13-15 and June 7-9 against Boston), and just the second time ever by Tampa Bay (also in September of 2000 at Tropicana Field). The Yankee have not been swept in a multi-game series on the road since September of 2010 at Texas.

NO MORE THAN THREE: The Yankees are the only Major League team that has not lost more than three straight road games this season.

NO MORE THAN FOUR: In the past 10 years, the Yankees went 6-4 in the season’s final game, losing four of the past six such contests. They have not ended a season on a losing streak of at least four games since 2000, when they lost their last season.

UPDATE, 7:23 p.m.: The Yankees take advantage of an error and take an early 1-0 lead in the first inning. Here’s Betances, given a lead in his first ever big league start.

UPDATE, 7:36 p.m.: Two walks by Betances, but he came back with two strikeouts to get out of the first inning without allowing a run. It’s still a 1-0 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 7:51 p.m.: Mark Teixeira’s 38th home run of the season is the seventh grand slam of his career, and it’s a 5-0 Yankees lead in the second.

UPDATE, 8:01 p.m.: Dellin’s a big boy. He’ll stay in the game after being hit by a comebacker.

UPDATE, 8:35 p.m.: Could Teixeira reach 40 homers this season? He’s gone deep twice tonight to bring his total to 39. It’s a 6-0 Yankees lead in the middle of the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:54 p.m.: So far, so good for this patchwork group of Yankees pitchers. Here comes Hughes for the fifth inning. Betances, Kontos and Laffey have kept the Rays off the scoreboard so far. The only hit has been the comebacker that glanced off Betances.

UPDATE, 9:18 p.m.: Golson is in for Granderson, and Pena is in for Jeter. Looks like Girardi will give Teixeira one more at-bat.

UPDATE, 9:25 p.m.: We might have our rotation answer: A.J. Burnett is getting loose in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 9:46 p.m.: One batter, one out for Burnett. Now Brackman is in.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: So Rodriguez was scratched pregame, now Montero is pulled after being hit by a tipped pitch. Girardi said pregame that his only concern was to get out of this game healthy. That’s not working out too well.

UPDATE, 10:22 p.m.: The kids flirt with a shutout, now Logan and Ayala have let the Rays back in the game with a six-run — and counting — eighth inning.

UPDATE, 10:55 p.m.: Might see a lot of Proctor tonight. Girardi has already used Brackman, Hughes, Burnett, Laffey and Kontos. Not sure there’s anyone else available in the bullpen who could give any sort of distance. In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s no one else in the bullpen who Girardi is willing to use at all.

UPDATE, 11:42 p.m.: Proctor through 2.1 scoreless on 46 pitches. We’re heading to the 12th, still 7-7. What a mess.

    Any chance Erica makes an appearance for the post season?

  2. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    as someone said before, they can play all night in Balt and fly to tampa tmw if they have to…

  3. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Nobody knows how to turn in on better in the postseason than the Yankees.

    If you can keep yourselves from worrying, it’s a good thing to do. The team you’ve watched all season long is the team that will be winning in the postseason. (that would be the Yankees)

    Okay, I will now turn my attention to the Camden Coliseum.

    GO SHOWALTERS!!!

  4. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    NESN panning the Sux lineup during the Star Spangled Banner. They do NOT look like they’re having fun, despite what elfkin says.

  5. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    they are a downtrodden team and do not believe, if they face tb tmw, it will be a monumental task

  6. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Simon vs. Lestor :

    Doesn’t look promising for B-More.

  7. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    mick, they are going to be playing very tight. And they are definitely underestimating Simon – not that he’s tremendous. But he can get guys out. So the combination will be a tough one for them.

    Kind’ve what I figured. I love it.

  9. syd_cash September 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Anyone know how many hits Jeter needs to get to .300

  10. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Did Agon actually blame the Yankees for trying to keep the Sux out of the postseason? I read something like that on the forum.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    syd-cash I think someone mentioned the numbers in the last thread. Can’t remember what they were though.

  12. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    It’s going to be hard to play baseball with both hands around your neck.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Simon just got jobbed strike three.

    :evil:

  14. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Pete Abe reporting that Youk is done for the year. Went to the 60 day DL

  15. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Ortiz should have been struck out already

  16. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Where in hell do they get these umpires.

    So now the fat slob Ortiz is at first because the HP ump blew the call.

    Sometimes I hate this game!

  17. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Gonzalez up, with Big Pooopi on.

  18. Bronx Jeers September 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    From the “It is High” blog:

    Are the Sox the victims of “The Curse of PeteAbe” ?

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Good. Fatty can’t run fast enough to have made it to second. Nice inning for Simon.

  20. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Let’s see if 4-day rest is overrated .

  21. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Again Sutcliff is going off about how much fun the players on the Sux team are having.

    I know that’s what everyone teams goal is when the season starts, let’s have a huge lead to make it in the playoffs and then completely blow it so that we can “have fun” the last three days in the season.

    I mean cmon. Does anyone really buy that crap.

  22. austinmac September 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Teixiera’s year reminds me of one Cano had a few years ago, many hard hit outs.

  23. Pat M. September 28th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Nick in SF….Even though I have picked 19 winners in the seasons over / ubder pool, I need the Mets to lose tonight to make some decent coin……Giants and Marlins hurt me this season…..Yanks over 90.5 saved my behind……

  24. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Bronx, that is hysterical!! I love the comments at the end!

    :lol:

  25. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Did they say Lestor is 14-0 against B-More ?

  26. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Ortiz hustling to second. And a Tampa error leads to a run for the Yankees. Lmao

  27. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    what kind of hoople franchise cant fill their park for a big game like this?

  28. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Hey Pat M!!!

    :)

  29. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Looking at gameday, seems A-gon did his infield groundout for Big Sloppi again. Never gets old. :D

  30. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Lester seems to be getting a very big strike zone

  31. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Generous strike zone for Lester. What a shock. Double for Hardy.

  32. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    rays and price look tight-yanks could win this one.

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Tampa probably playing tight too, and why wouldn’t they be.

    NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please don’t tell me it’s starting already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DOUBLE FOR HARDY!!!!

    HARDEE HAR HAR!!!!!

  34. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    pat m mets won today, sorry

  35. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Pat M, great to see you today.

    The Giants not even sniffing their over was a disappointment, I also lost on the Phillies and the Blue Jays. Yanks, Socks, Braves (by a half game as of now!), and of course the Baltimore under were nice winners, however. Yanks alone covered all the losers and then some.

    I also made some coin on Jeter hitting over .283 this season. I was clearly his most loyal and faithful fan in this den of hatred and cynicism.

  36. m September 28th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Ridiculous strike zone for Lester.

    Does the HP ump fear the juiced gorilla?

  37. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Let’s see if 4-day rest is overrated .

    ——

    It is. Lestor sharp, very.

  38. Ys Guy September 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    if florida, tampa or the county its in spend a penny to build a ballpark for this franchise they are out of their minds. fortunately for them i think there is little to no chance of that ever happening.

  39. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Go Dellin! Just pretend you are pitching at Trenton. :)

  40. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    He everybody what a great night of baseball!!!

  41. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    “I also made some coin on Jeter hitting over .283 this season. I was clearly his most loyal and faithful fan in this den of hatred and cynicism.”

    :)

    I stand to make some coin but only if he hits 300. How’s THAT for loyalty? Actually at the time the bet was made, that probably would have qualified for plum craziness!

  42. Bryan September 28th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    I would like to thank Girardi for going balls to the wall and playing A-Rod 4 days in a row and two on turf

    thanks you a** clown

  43. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    It will be interesting to see how Betances bounces back after his debut. Meanwhile listening to Espn’s c squad is tough.

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    “Ridiculous strike zone for Lester. ”

    Yet fat Ortiz made it to first base on a walk when he had clearly struck out.

    GRRR!!!!!

  45. Joe from Long Island September 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    Pat M. – Hi there. Been busy ogling the pool service?

    Glad you’re here. Tell us what you think of Betances.

  46. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    Atta boy, Dealin’.

  47. syd_cash September 28th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    whoo hooo O’s strike first!!! Very important and two out hit, hopefully Lester we have a horrible game :D

  48. qiantom September 28th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Betances clearly not capable of throwing strikes.

  49. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Where are these pitches ???

  50. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Betances clearly not capable of throwing strikes.

    ————————————–

    Clearly the strikes he is throwing aren’t being called

  51. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Odd coincidence that Joe west who hates the Yankees is behind the plate.

  52. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Simon doing a nice job.

  53. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Let him work through it. This time he is better and will settle down.

  54. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Compare Lester’s zone to Bentances. Not even in the same zip code

  55. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    So was Betances Milli or Vanili? At any rate he needs to control the zone a lot better in the future, which he will. He is going to be a good one.

  56. randy l. September 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    if larry lucchinno and john henry had a chance to lose a red sox game that would force the yankees into a playoff game or elimination, they would do it in a heartbeat.

    the favor should be returned.

  57. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Betances needs to relax. I want him to pitch a couple of innings. Hang in there, kid!

  58. Bryan September 28th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    thatta boy Betances

    Pitching like a true New Yorker

    Doing exactly what your airhead manager won’t do

  59. syd_cash September 28th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Betances is only gonna pitch one inning…what happened to two or three

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    I would never take any negatives out of a game where one of our kids is pitching, especially when they’ve just come up – and they’re pitching against a team fighting for its life.

    Everyone gets jitters. It’s all good.

  61. kd September 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    hi pat m… you’ve been missed

    what a great day for the yankees..

    the future on the field with the present

  62. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    That’s it Dell CB next

  63. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Just get out of the game at the Trop with no injuries. Friday can’t come soon enough. I’m am amped.

  64. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    GREAT PITCH!!

  65. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    “if larry lucchinno and john henry had a chance to lose a red sox game that would force the yankees into a playoff game or elimination, they would do it in a heartbeat.

    Aye Randy! Aye!

  66. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    There it is the inside K pitch, CB.

  67. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Man this kid has good stuff.

  68. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Nasty hook there from the kid.

  69. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Power change. :)

  70. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    I’m not liking the fact that they are starting to tag the ball against Lester. You know that eventually something’s going to drop in!

    :D

  71. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    And I am hoping Jeter can get on the next 2 at bats to hit .300

  72. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    nice change up

  73. Joe from Long Island September 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    struck out joyce and damon……

  74. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    K!!

  75. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    The Rays offense is pretty weak, but they should have many oppo’s tonight with who the Yankees will be trotting out there.

  76. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    GOOD JOB DB!!!!!!

  77. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    I just said kid…he’s older than me by a few months….haha. That’s kind of funny.

  78. BX33 September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    They need to get Proctor into this game ASAP

  79. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Regardless of what happens tonight..

    Do you prefer Delin dealing to Montero, or Ubaldo to?

    What’s that saying about the best deals…….

  80. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Niiice job, Dellin.

  81. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    If things get really dicey in Baltimore, Boone could always come out of the booth and hit a bomb!

    That would be awesome.

  82. austinmac September 28th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Burnett looking curve at 84 mph.

  83. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Very nice comeback there by Betances. Good mix of the heater, curve and change.

  84. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    nasty change by Betances

  85. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Hello, randy. I saw that message you left for me last Monday — I was on the road and unable to respond at the time.

    “i’ve believe that regulars that clearly don’t like each [other] should refrain from snide comments about each other or their comments to make the blog more readable .

    the invasions of permanent trolls is bad enough. i don’t consider you one of these, but i see no reason for either of us to comment on each other’s baseball comments.”

    I like you, so for me this does not apply. :grin:

  86. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Why did Alex get scratched?

  87. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    BJ steals one from Montero

  88. kd September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    great catch by upton

  89. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Darn! Heckuva catch.

  90. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Amazing catch by Upton! Didn’t think he was going to get to it.

  91. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    I’m looking for big things from Montero in the Playoffs. The kid hits ropes everywhere.

  92. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    dammit…should have been a hit..

  93. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    sore right knee. :(

  94. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Hit machine robbed by Upton

  95. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Blake,

    Alex’s knee was sore

  96. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    montero just flicked the bat at that fastball…his presence at the plate is quite impressive for such a young player…

  97. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    like real sore….or just last day of the season and don’t want to take any chances sore?

  98. kd September 28th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    blake,

    sore knee

  99. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Hate when Remy says “Badroia”. Wonder if he knows the correct spelling of his name?

  100. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    We give nunez grief but this kid can hit!

  101. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    blake, hopefully the latter (fingers crossed).

  102. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Blake,

    Reports just said that his knee was just sore.. Guess giradi didn’t want to chance anything.

  103. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    I haven’t seen Betances pitch all that much…..but I’ve never seen the 97/98 that you hear about that he touches……he’s been 93-94…touching 95 every time I’ve seen him

  104. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    All right, Brandon!

  105. kd September 28th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    hmmm… gb7 might know what he’s talking about. laird has a really nice swing

  106. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    He looks fine in those drills…..

  107. EliasInNH September 28th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Hi, all! Hope everyone is happy today! Just remember, Teixiera does NOT suck, the Sox will NOT make the playoffs, and we WILL win the World Series.

    Talk to you all later…
    I’m supposedly supposed to be selling Apple stuff… :)

    You can tell he has the ability though, he just needs to harness that energy better.

  109. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Price is almost at 50 pitches and it’s not even the 3rd inning.

  110. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Trisha….Remy’s voice is just so irritating, thank goodness I have the O’s feed…

  111. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    He touched 96 tonight. Normally he is 93-96, touching 98/99. A couple of games he was 94-97 sitting.

  112. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Who is doing this play by play? Nunez rips one to the gap and we get silence…

  113. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Is the sore knee for Alex the one that he had surgery on?

  114. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Betances doesn’t really use all that leverage he has that well yet…….he’s got lots of room to grow……

  115. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Doc, Orsillo’s grates on me too.

    It just may be that the Rays better take their game…

    Laird looks like he could be a very nice replacement next year for Andruw Jones.

    This spring–when Trisha and I were saying Showalter would help Orioles play better, we forgot to mention that we were specifically talking about September. Buck is the best manager of a 40 man roster in baseball. And when baseball finally moves to 40 man rosters full time, look out!

  142. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Oh man Tex. Also, that was the single least excited grand slam call in the history of baseball. I think that was more amazing that the actually hit.

    Well done Tex. Now Betances has to keep up his end of the bargain.

    _________________

    I agree because early in the inning he held the runner at third at 1-0 with one out, in a normal game the runner def woulda been sent and I also don’t feel like Grandy swings at the first pitch with the bases loaded either (at least I hope not).

  149. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    It’s only the 2nd inning. There’s a lot of game left.

  156. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Actually the best case scenario is for the Yankees to demolish the Rays.

    With the Orioles pulling out a 15 inning walk-off win!!!

  157. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Price has not been good at all these past 2 starts. That has to be pretty devastating when your ace is not coming through.

  158. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Well let me say this. I will be very shocked if the final score in B’More is 1-0.

    we should be doing what we need to do for the postseason. playing spoiler, trying to get oen team in instead of the other…all that stuff is bubkus.

    we do what we need to do and let chips fall where they may.

    we can easily lose to any team in the postseason and we can beat any team in the postseason.

    i’m just looking forward to october baseball already…

  162. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    There you go.

  163. blake September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Price has been much more hittable this year than I’ve ever seen him…. weird because his velocity is actually up from last year…..his K/9 are up, his BB/9 are down, his WHIP is Lower and his FIP is lower than last year.

  164. BX33 September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    This is unbelievable.

    Hey Tex – let’s see some of those against Verlander and Fister rather than in a game that helps our hated rival get into the playoffs, idiot.

  165. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Yankees detroy left handed pitching. Why we need the Rangers in the first round.

  166. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

  167. Swishalicious33 September 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Oh, so NOW Tex decides to get a big hit, when we don’t want it to happen. And I’m sure he’ll go back to sleep just in time for the playoffs. Ugh.

  168. Yank 97 September 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    Joe Girardi is going to be the most hated man in New York tonight and throughout the rest of the MLB season.

    How the heck could he screw this up so much?

  169. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    trisha, I’m hoping Vlad hits a grand salami too :D

  170. blake September 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    I want a Yankee win and an Orioles win….that’s what I’m hoping for. However…..if the Yanks win and Boston also wins then I’m fine with going into the postseason on a high note………Boston won’t get past the first round and if they do I say bring uhm on in the ALCS

  171. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    it randy a while to get his stuff figured out. i can see betances on the same type of development curve…that’s alot of limbs moving at the same time. so it may take a little bit to get it all working in harmony…

  172. deleonj September 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Mark..you pos! All year long we waited for things like this…and yep you delivered! Thank you! You are a ‘true Yankee’ now…please do the same against verlander and Boston when they pitch to you. Garbage

  173. TheStraw September 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Personally, Tex raking is way more important than who makes it as the WC. Let the chips fall where they may.

    Os need to come through!

  175. Eroc September 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    If Tex doesn’t have a big postseason, he is going to be villain #1 in Yankee land. Him along with our idiot manager.

  176. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    “And I’m sure he’ll go back to sleep just in time for the playoffs. Ugh.”

    I think the opposite, Tex will be on fire this post-season.

  181. blake September 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Nobody is going to hate Girardi….you have to play the regulars so that they can tune up for Friday…..and the players aren’t going to mail in ABs. This is on the Rays not the Yankees if they lose……..they didn’t play all that much better than Boston this month.

  182. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    I think the opposite, Tex will be on fire this post-season.

    ————————————-

    based on what? Have you seen his career post season numbers?

  183. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    This line-up against left-handed pitching is why I think the Yanks would do very, very well against Texas. It looks like they’ll be playing the Tigers though, in the first round.

    Alex’s sore knee is more than a little disturbing.

  184. Gary September 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    __________________________________________________________________________

    It really was a George Brett moment. I can remember after Brett crushed Goose Gossage and George saying that no one can throw a fastball by me. Same thing from Price, flat fastball right at the belt, good bye. No movement most of these guys will crush it.

  185. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

  194. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Gary-

    He’s been getting hit pretty hard. The velocity has been very good but like you said, little movement and bad location is killing him. Tough for Tampa considering you have your ace on the mound against a rookie and your down 5-0 right off the bat.

  195. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

  213. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    “based on what? Have you seen his career post season numbers?”

    Based on the fact that he is better than his numbers say he is. He is way over due to go on a hot streak. Bad previous post season numbers just increase the chance that this is the year that his numbers will even out.

  228. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:12 pm

  229. Gary September 28th, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    Lester 46 pitches through 12 batters and three innings. He has been suffering from high pitch count for awhile also.

    nyyfana,

    Can’t disagree with you. Girardi has, for some inexplicable reason, made it his goal to knock Tampa out of the playoffs while allowing the Red Sox in the playoffs.

    Luckily Tampa won yesterday inspite of Girardi.

    We now need the Os to now get to the 1 game playoff.

    Nunez wasnt stealing against the Red Sox. But he’s stealing here. I hope the Rays throw at him next time up.

  249. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Texas usually plays Boston very tough. If they face in that divison series that’s going to be a battle. Texas will be running like crazy on the Sox.

  252. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    I have no difficulty rooting for the Rays to win toonight’s game. I’ve rooted for other teams against the Yankees in the past. I’ve rooted for teams that are in the basement to take a game in a series against the Yankees when the Yankees have had a healthy lead in the AL East. I know there will be losses every season and so to have some team that gets no respect win against the Yankees and get some respect and validation does nothing but make me extremely happy.

    I never take my eyes off the prize. I know who the Yankees are and I enjoy every minute of the season, whether they win or lose. I know they will always be there when it counts.

    I’m not threatened by Yankee losses. That will ever change. And I am not fiercely competitive by nature so I don’t need the Yankees to steamroll over other teams to get my jollies. A one-run win is enough for me.

    I’m a Yankee fan with a heart. EXCEPT WHEN IT COMES TO THE SUX.

  253. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Good start by Betances. Still a little wild but 2 scoreless innings in a huge game. That’s something to build on.

  254. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    81 pitches for Price through 3. Yikes.

  255. BA September 28th, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    So do u think the regulars get 2 or 3 ABs each and the Girardi starts pulling them out? Or is he planning for them to play the whole game?

  256. kd September 28th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    pat m,

    do you think boston has the pitching to win a round in the playoffs?

  257. blake September 28th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    While Texas’s LH pitching is a good matchup for the Yanks…….its a horrible one for Boston…..especially without Youkallis

  258. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Cardinals hammering the Astros early 3-0 with men on 2nd and 3rd still. Carp is pitching tonight. Looking like a potential playoff in the NL. I have to deal with annoying Cardinal fans for at least another day :(

  259. Phranchise September 28th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Red Sox as is cannot beat Texas. No shot. Beckett stunk. Lester can’t start right away. Their bullpen is not good. Bard was shot during this stretch run. Without Aceves they have Paps and that’s it. Plus they have plenty of guys not hitting and no Youk. Texas will run on them all night, have better pitching, hitting and home field. They would need a miracle in that series to have a shot.

  260. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    this is shameful. George Steinbrenner helped bring baseball to the Tampa area. And here Girardi is try8ing his damndest to knock out the Rays

  261. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Yeah, Texas has given Boston fits for awhile now.

  262. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    In a Rays vs Sox paly-off game, I guess Moore starts for Rays–who goes for Sox?

  263. luis September 28th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Hi everyone!!,

    O’s leading 2-1 YES!!!!!, Not going to be able to stay long tonight, but if everything stays this way, they’ll have to play another game!!!, i love that…especially if the Rays kick the sux ass!!

    JAP and Yankeefem, it’s awesome to see Betances pitch and Montero catching, sad that i’m not going to be able to see the whole game.

    GO Showalters!!!!

  264. Phranchise September 28th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    With all the young guys pitching, this game isn’t over for the Rays either.

  265. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    red sox tie it up…

  266. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    BoJo, hehe true

    A Balk ties it up, but a hit follows anyway. :(

  267. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    It would be sweet to see the Yankee pitching prospects blind the rays. 4 pitch walk…ugh

  268. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    what a BS call. The umps are in the Sox pocket. this is insane

  269. Phranchise September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    A balk scores a Sox run. What a joke

  270. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Any team getting into the playoffs should earn their way in. No free passes. If it is the RS then it is.

    The Yankees should try winning this game.

    While there would be satisfaction in seeing the RS completely go down in flames, I don’t care if they get in. It is still a huge collapse they had this year and I don’t see them turning it around in the post season.

    The best of all would be if both Tampa and the RS lose and they are forced to go to a play in game.

  271. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    They called a cheap balk for the tying run for red sox

    Scary thought that this could have easily been Sea’s rotation

    Felix
    Lincecum – If they picked him instead of Morrow
    Strasburg – if they didn’t sweep the final series
    Pineda
    Nova – Well we all know about this one

    This jerkoff Girardi gives players games off during the season all the time. Half days off, full days off.

    Our players are going have to play 4 games in 5 days in the postseason, and here he is not giving our guys the day off.

    Hank and Hal are disgraces to their father, and I despise Girardi. A joke of a human being.

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    They don’t play until Friday night that’s 2 days off, they are big boys they are fine. They will relax at the golf course tomm.

  279. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    If it is Sox-Rays and Moore starts I feel sorry for Boston lol. That pitching matchup is a mismatch regardless of who Boston starts. Maybe they will start that top prospect Weiland ;)

  287. Yanks78 September 28th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    And of course Binder Joe used Proctor before Kontos against the Sox.

  296. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    This game isn’t over yet. the Yanks are going to be bringing in a lot of not so great pitchers from that ‘pen. If the Rays can keep it at 5, they might have a chance.

  297. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Hey look, Joe West letting everybody know he’s working the game. #nyy

  298. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Girardi is just moving the chess pieces around before pulling the shocker and inserting AJ in the game in the 5th inning to vulture his 12th win.

    :oops:

  299. Pat M. September 28th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Tyler…As good as Moore looked against the Yanks, he’s still a kid pitching in a high profile game…..Boston is like a wounded animal, very dangerous….Do not dismiss them for being dead until they are……I want them blown out tonight

  300. BA September 28th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Rumors were the Sux were trying to acquire Bruce Chen for a potential 1 game playoff. That is the current state of their rotation.

  301. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

  303. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    I can’t believe how many are unhappy when a Yankee does well tonight – I WANT the players going into the playoffs playing well. Does the fate of the Sox mean more than your own team sharpening up and going into the post-season in a good frame of mind?

  304. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Laffey the loogy?

  305. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Napoli goes about 450 to deep center 1 – 0 Antlers and Claws.

    They can hit, won’t be a treat if we get them either.

  306. mick September 28th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    the thought of boston getting in is not killing me, why not?

  307. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    you know, when the mets collapsed in 07, the phillies played lights out baseball to make it.

    the rays have sputtered while the sox kept losing. so seeing them play so tight right now makes sense. they are not ready for prime time.

  308. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    “You’ve got to beat the best to be the best, I don’t care who we play.”

    __________________________________________________________________________

    It’s sort of academic right now. With the Yanks playing probably Detroit, but maybe Texas they have to get by them to get to the second round. Both those teams are pretty good, that’s why they got to the postseason. You can’t take anything for granted in the playoffs. Yanks have learned that lesson alot in the last decade.

  310. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    I agree Betsy.

    Yanks can’t make everyone happy.

  311. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Pat M, the Sox are like any team if they get in the playoffs – dangerous. They do have the two best SP so that makes them doubly dangerous….but I don’t think they are to be feared. I would just grant them a healthy respect like I do the other post-season teams. I worry about our SP.

  312. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Nobody asked me but as someone who watches the Sux all season and lives close enough to smell their putrid stench, take it from me. They cannot beat any team in the postseason. Any team. They have no pitching. There’s the long and the short. Verlander and Fister is all you need for Detroit to beat them. The Rangers would take them to the cleaners offensively.

    I hope they don’t make it that far but if they do, I’ll enjoy the laughers against them.

    Still can’t figure how any baseball fan who has paid close attention to them could imagine them beating anyone. Hell the O’s have taken them to them cleaners.

  313. 4time September 28th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    “.Boston is like a wounded animal, very dangerous….Do not dismiss them for being dead until they are……I want them blown out tonight”

    Couldn’t agree more, pat.

    That’s why I wanted them out of the playoffs. Our manager apparently doesn’t agree. Better hope it doesn’t burn him in a couple of weeks….

  314. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    i wonder if jeter told girardi to pull him if he makes .300 ala reyes…lol…

  315. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    RR, I would love the Sox to miss the playoffs, but I really don’t care if they get in or not……I only care about my team.

  316. m September 28th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Sutcliffe going on and on about Ellsbury. Hopefully they lose so it will cost him some votes.

  317. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    OK time to pull Jeter, The chase for .300 is dead.

  318. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    I really don’t like the Rays. They are getting a chance more on a team losing it rather than them winning it. It is why I would love to see this go to a game tomorrow. The only shame is that the Angels weren’t also in the mix and forcing a three way tie.

  319. raymagnetic September 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    I dislike Tampa and Boston equally. Rooting for one over the other is like choosing a root canal over having your wisdom tooth pulled.

    If Tampa had a chance to knock out NY they would relish it like a hot dog, trust me!

    Remember how arrogant that needle prick Maddon was when his scrub broke Cervelli’s leg?

    F Boston and Tampa both I say.

  320. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    Pat-

    I’m with you on that. Boston is an immensely talented team that is simply underachieving in the month of September. That being said, I really think that their pitching is in shambles. Beckett and Lester look out of gas, Lackey hasn’t been good all year, Bedard is a 5 inning pitcher at most, Wakefield is the same as he’s always been. They have a very good lineup and a huge homefield advantage. Moore also pitched a high profile game against the Yanks and looked great. But I do agree with you. I would never underestimate the Sox. They will be a tough out in the playoffs if they get there.

  321. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    “Rumors were the Sux were trying to acquire Bruce Chen for a potential 1 game playoff. That is the current state of their rotation.”

    Yeah but don’t waste your breath here. Rather than look at the Sux for who they are, it’s easier for people who apparently don’t bother following them closely to go with the old party line – any team in the postseason is scary!

    :roll:

  322. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    ESPN is talking like Ellsbury is a shoo-in for MVP – hey, guys if the Red Sox don’t make the postseason, doesn’t that rule him out, like Bautista?

    once again Betsy, i totally agree.

    up until today, i was all about the sox not making it and i still am, but i also want to see the yanks playing well tonite before friday.

  326. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    Pat M is correct. Down does not mean out for the sox. They are a streaky team. Would rather see them out altogether.

  335. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    I think every manager goes out to win the game. All this attack on Joe because he isn’t managing to lose the game doesn’t really seem too logical in the scheme of what a manager gets paid to do. Joe isn’t worried about who is in and who is out, the players aren’t either.

  337. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

  348. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    RR, I never cared whether the Sox made it or not…………I’ll be glad when this is over, to be honest. I respect the Sox a great deal, but to fear them to the point of being desperate for them not to make the post-season? I just don’t get it. If we end up facing them and we lose, so be it.

  349. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Maybe Igawa???

  350. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

  351. raymagnetic September 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Shouldn’t teams be fearing facing the best team in the league?

    The Yankees have the most wins in the league and the greatest run differential. Wherever plays them should be VERY worried.

  352. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    “But I do agree with you. I would never underestimate the Sox. They will be a tough out in the playoffs if they get there.”

    Despite your saying their pitching is in shambles and we all know that it’s pitching that wins championships.

    I guess nobody really cares to talk the reality of the game, just throw hackneyed phrases.

    If they’ve underachieved in September it’s because their pitching is in shambles.

    *************

    I wonder if any of the people throwing daisies at a team that is hardly breathing are the same ones that were absolutely annihilating the Yankees at the end of the season in 2008 (that would have been the majority of lohud), saying that even if they made it into the playoffs they’d never make it out of the first round because of their PITCHING. But the Sux, with a rotation in shambles, could be dangerous.

    :roll:

    No hypocrisy there!

    “Shouldn’t teams be fearing facing the best team in the league?

    The Yankees have the most wins in the league and the greatest run differential. Wherever plays them should be VERY worried.”

    It doesn’t work that way here. It works in the opposite direction. Here the fear is of any team that makes it into the postseason and might face the Yankees!

    :)

    Pathetic.

  364. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Lestah and Beckett are going to have to pitch a lot better if they get into the ALDS against Texas. Otherwise the Sox will have no shot. Their pen is pretty gassed at this point.

  365. RMS September 28th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Glad to see Tex get it going, hopefully all through the post season. 2 days off for Alex should help him. He also needs to get on a roll.

    As for the RS, I don’t give a hoot if they make it or not. I just care about the Yankees.

  366. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Remember that Tex was badly injured last year during play-offs. IRRC, a broken toe and a bad thumb.

  367. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Just because you play tonight, that doesn’t mean you can’t make the postseason roster.

  369. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Did Tex contribute to any of our 97 (to date) wins? Now I can’t remember.

  370. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Hughes up. Hope he can crank out a few 95mph high fastballs for swinging strikes.

  371. Yank 97 September 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Come on, does anyone really think Tex is going to carry this into the playoffs?

    First off, we’re going to see 3 righties, who Tex is hitting .200 against, all who have good change-ups. Tex is toast against the Tigers.

    All he did was allow our hated rivals in the playoffs. What a clown Tex is. Wish we could ship him off this winter and sign Prince Fielder.

  372. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    RMS, you and me both………..Girardi is being ripped to shreds because he’s not interesting in tanking a game. Unbelievable.

    Things like this always seem to come full circle in sports.

    Girardi blew an absolutely golden opportunity to knock out a big threat to us in the playoffs. He is living proof that a fancy degree from a good school doesn’t mean you are smart.

  381. JobaTipsHisCap September 28th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    If sux plays Tex, they should win in 4.

  385. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Wow, just wow. The Yankee manager wants to win HIS game ………..fire the man. Holy moly – you really want your manager being so wussy and fearful of the Red Sox? Yeah, that’s someone I want running the team.

  386. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    You guys do realize that even if the Yanks won that last game against the Sox, there would be a playoff if the results from tonight hold up? The Yanks had no shot to knock out the Sox. The Sox and Rays would still be tied.

  387. Tabbert September 28th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Why should we tank to let a team in the playoffs? That just ruins the game and is a absolute mockery to pro sports. The rays and red sox had a year to do what the yankees have done and they both failed to do so. There are no free passes to the big dance for any team in any sport. If tampa or boston want in, they need to earn it. Yankee fans rooting against their own team are a complete joke with no respect for the game. If we win, sox win… Then the sox did what they had to do to make it to the playoffs. Congrats to them. People need to focus on the yankees and only the yankees. Get over your obsession with us tanking a game just to give the rays a free ticket to october.

  388. JM September 28th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    If the Ray hadn’t lost 2 out of 3 to Baltimore earlier this month, they wouldn’t be in this position. Not to mention their “ace” Price is not exactly finishing strong.

  389. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    I can’t blame Joe for not intentionally tanking a game.

    However, it was simple strategy as well to try and knock out a team that does pose a legit threat to you in Oct.

    I think Joe missed the boat here in a big way. I’m not going to call him an idiot, moron, etc. but this certainly won’t look good if we’re staring BOS in the face in 2 weeks when Joe had the chance to kill them off.

  399. TheStraw September 28th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    What a bunch of pathetic whiners here…wouldn’t you all have signed up for 98 wins at the beginning of the season and relegating the Sox (maybe) to the wildcard? The team is playing well the last game of the season and going into the playoffs on a high note. Yet all anyone does here is buy into the NESPN hype and fear other teams in the playoffs. It’s kind of sickening.

  400. Daniel in Toronto September 28th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    How could the Rays possibly have come out looking so lifeless tonight? Zobrist’s error, Price’s pitching, Maddon’s managing. It’s absolutely perplexing.

    Also, I hate to take the glass half full approach…

    But why is Mark Teixeira hitting the ball with authority for the first time in like three months in the one game that I didn’t want him to?

  401. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Highly vocal minority.

  404. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Tabbert, exactly.

    Really? IMO, Joe looks like a manager who is managing for his own team’s success. Unlike some here, he has faith in his team – yes, even against the big, bad, Sox. Yes, they are dangerous, but what are the Yankees? Chopped meat? Championship teams beat other good teams on their way to the title…………and if the Yankees get knocked out on the way, yes, even by the Sox, so be it. This is like the Twilight Zone…….except it’s too weird for that.

  405. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    The announcers at the Os game, tracking the yanks game, said that Girardi is piecing his bullpen & that the yanks have the best bullpen… :D

  406. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    This game is on David Price. Period.

  410. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    “Come on, does anyone really think Tex is going to carry this into the playoffs?”

    No but they believe that the players who have gotten it done all season are going to shut down if they haven’t hit in the past few games. But these are the same people who look at every game and player under a microscope and knee jerk every play. If they had the ability to apply perspective over the entire season, they wouldn’t be in a twist over every loss and every game where a Yankee pitcher has a bad outing.

    You know, the tendency of people to treat a marathon as a sprint in basebal really tends to bug me. It is bugging me especially tonight, as you can imagine. While it may not be likely I hope the Rays tie the score, though if that happens, some posters here will be doing novenas because our pitchers who won’t even be on the postseason roster gave up some runs.

  411. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

  415. Melk Man September 28th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    But why is Mark Teixeira hitting the ball with authority for the first time in like three months in the one game that I didn’t want him to?

    —————-

    So that he can go back in hibernation for the playoffs like he always does, duh.

    Tex hitting well tonight is a sign that he is about to go back into his shell. How many times are people fooled by good Tex games? He hasn’t built on a good game all year, why should e start now? Not to mention… The Tigers pitching staff is a TERRIBLE matchup for him, as it is for Swisher and ARod, but Tex especially is going to be hammered by those hard FBs in and good soft stuff away. I actually think he has a better chance vs. Verlander than Scherzer or Fister.

  416. JobaTipsHisCap September 28th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Since anything is possible in short alds series, yanks could lose to tigers, sux could beat Tex if the scores hold. If so, is this what Yankee fans like to see?

    The thing is, do NOT give sux any chance, period.

  417. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    And Straw, you have it exactly wrong. Those of us here who want the Sux to go down in flames now want it based on delighting in the collapse of the best team ever assembled. Period. Last I looked that’s our right.

    Right?

  418. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Trish- I have logical concerns about every team we face. Claiming your not worried about any team is just being ignorant. Every team in the playoffs has the ability to eliminate us.. Just as we have the same ability. The playoffs are always a crap shoot in every sport.

    Yanks fan mad that tex is showing some life with his bat right before the playoffs start? Wow…. Just pains me that some people could be so stupid.

  430. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    95!

    clearly Girardi is going all out by starting a rookie and then going Kontos, and Laffey……this is on Price. They had to play the regulars because they are off tomorrow and you don’t want you’re main guys going 2 straight days off before Game 1.

    Price came out with such high expectations and then he got crushed. You couldn’t see it, but I’m sure the players behind him got deflated. It’s no different then when a CC, Cliff Lee, Mo or any other top flight pitcher goes out and blows up.

  435. Bronx Jeers September 28th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    Did you seriously believe that they were going to tank a game to spite the Sox?

    This isn’t the WWF.

  436. Yankees_Fan September 28th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    I really can’t believe how many here are killing Girardi and the Yanks for leading the game. Really guys, do you want us to simply lay dead only two days before the playoffs? Yeah, you hate the Sox. Most of us do, but its because of out love for the Yanks. You play this game, you play to win, and even today, we are playing our young pitchers. Wanna blame anybody? Blame the Rays, who still have to score.

    And the Sox haven’t won anything yet. The best case was for Yanks to win this game, the Sox lose theirs and have a playoff game tomorrow. That could still happen. Even so, better watch what happens without picking a side, because there is a reason why people say “be careful what you wish for”.

  437. JM September 28th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    trisha,

    I understand where you are coming from because I know you do not fear the Sox, you merely loathe them. LOL.

    But some on here wanted Girardi and the Yanks to tank this game because they fear the Sox will beat the Yankees in the ALCS.

    The Yankees are a much better team than the Rays so you always had to figure they’d win at least one of the three games.

  438. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I’m LOVING that the Yankees will go into the post-season on the strength of this win!!!

  439. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    this performance is laughable.

  440. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Bronx, the Red Sox would have. And they treat this like the WWF, and all of their teams do, thats why they are Titletown. Because they dont care about appearances, they care about winning and beating NY

  441. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    If the Red Sox end up losing, end up missing the PS, I will be thrilled.

    But if they get in, it will be dealt with. :)

    “Trish- I have logical concerns about every team we face. Claiming your not worried about any team is just being ignorant.”

    When you have a thorough familiarity with the strengths of your own team and know that they are equipped to win the world series, then you’re not worried about any other team. I don’t call that ignorant, I call that confident.

    I’m fearless Tabbert. Not ignorant.

    Can you actually lay off Hughes for 5 minutes? He is coming back from an injury. Already you’re damning him after a few pitches? You talk about people rooting against the Yankees, but you are faithless when it comes to Hughes.

  449. JM September 28th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    The Yanks needed a game like this because overall they haven’t been swinging the bats well of late. Not thrilled that they’ll have to face Verlander but if CC is on he can match him. Would rather go into the first game on a high note than on a four-game losing streak, even though I realize the games have been meaningless for NY.

  450. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    K

  451. Daniel in Toronto September 28th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    I want to clarify something:

    There is definitely a difference between being “scared” of the Red Sox and believing that they are a far superior team to the Rays.

    I am confident in the Yankees no matter who they play.

    In a 7 game series, though, even the better team is only likely to win something like 55-60 percent of the time. And I would think that our likelihood of winning would be higher against the Rays than the Red Sox.

    I think that’s a pretty reasonable reason to want the Rays to make the playoffs.

  452. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Good job by Hughes……hard to tell because the Rays probably are kind of toast at this point, but he threw a few good curves. They really should send him out there for another inning as he’s going to be more of a long-man type in the playoffs

  453. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    put Longoria away

  454. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    As I watch the fightin’ Showalters do battle with the Red Sox, the loathing of the Red Sox is so strong. However, what is playing out is perhaps the way it should happen. If the Yankees take of business with TB, and the Red Sox are forced into a playoff with the Rays because they could not beat the Orioles, they will have nothing to whine about. Especially, because of the Proctor game.

  455. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    Blake- The braves blotch an inning ending DP in the 7th, now 3-2 with one out runners on 1st and 2nd. We’ll see if the best RS in NL can hold off the Phillies, who still have their regulars in.

  456. Tabbert September 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Fact is, tanking a game in pro sports to help another team is bush league, borderline cheating, cowardly, and a complete joke to all pro sports. Why would you want the yankees to do such a thing? The yanks represent class.. not a organization that cheats the game, its players, and its fans.

  457. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Come on Bojo….it’s a figure of speech :)

  458. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    If George were alive and healthy, this never would have happened. He lived to win and beat the Red Sox

  459. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Yankeefem, don’t you lecture me – and I’ll post what I want to. Don’t like it? Tough nuts.

  460. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Trader,

    they are making me nervous……big DP there

  461. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    If Hughes is throwing like that, the Yanks ‘pen is going to be lethal. That almost looked like ’09 Hughes in the ‘pen.

    “But some on here wanted Girardi and the Yanks to tank this game because they fear the Sox will beat the Yankees in the ALCS.

    To me that’s a crazy reason to want the Yanks to tank a game. In addition, those people, whoever they are, are in the baseball ozone. Simply incredible that supposed knowledgable fans could follow baseball (if they even do beyond the Yanks) and talk about feariing the Sux.

    JM, even better is that there are people here who have admitted that they having been following teams other than the Yankees and they will start too follow them once they know the postseason competition – which I have no problem with – but them yammering about how the Sux should be feared. WHAT?????

    Okay, I’m going to concentrate on what appears to be hopeful in Baltimore. Here’s hoping.

    Talk to you later.

    Youre right Tabbert. The Yankees do represent class, but unfortunately, thats not the way they are portrayed by the media, so it doestn matter.

    Last year in the final game, the Bears sat all their players against the Packers, allowing the Packers an easy victory to get into the playoffs, and thus denying the Giants getting into the playoffs.

    It happens all the time, it’s not outright tanking, but it’s playing your bums

  469. Pat M. September 28th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

  498. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    George wanted one thing from the Yankees: to win the World Series. He could have cared less about how the Sox did. In fact, he probably would rather have beaten them in the ALCS then have the Yanks meekly blow games to keep them out. He was a competitor, not afraid of any team.

  502. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    That was an awfully slick play by Scutaro and Pedroyer.

    If the Socks make it, so be it. Lester has come up pretty big on short rest.

    But Matt Albers can still help force a playoff tomorrow.

  503. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Girardi got killed for putting cruise control on games that mattered and not caring about the division

    Now he is playing these useless games like they are Game 7

    Except Sunday when he gift wrapped one for the Sux

    How does that make sense?

  506. Bronx Jeers September 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Oh Baltimore.

  507. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Joe so far has pitched 3 minor leaguers and a rehabbing Hughes. The Rays have put up 0. It’s not like Joe went all out to win this game. Most hitters don’t want two days in a row off.

    All I can hope for is that the baseball gods have good surprises in store and that the Sux will have their hopes dashed even if it’s at the very last pitch tonight. I’m thinking that the Suxian milkshakes have to be atoned for and IMO that would be the way.

    GO ORIOLES!!!

  511. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

  513. Melk Man September 28th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    If the Yanks did what they were supposed to do tonight, it wouldn’t matter what Lester or the Sux did.

    This is all on the Yankees. The Os suck and they already did more than we could have expected. It was up to the Yankees tonight to make the 1-game playoff a reality, not the Os and someone named Alfredo Simoney. Yanks and Girardi screwed this up.

  514. Tabbert September 28th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Given the option to end the sox season tonight by tanking or to end their season ourself by taking them out in the alcs which would you take?

    I vote alcs

  515. Carlo September 28th, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    The issue is not baltimore scoring more runs. its baltimore allowing more runs that is what will keep boston from completing this truly epic collapse.

  532. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Hughes should have pitched more than one inning – I don’t see any way he can be a long man in the playoffs given how he’s simply not stretched out.

  533. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Pat M.

    When Girardi had a chance to deep six Boston he should have.

    Where all the hostility is coming from.

    No excuse for some of the decisions on Sunday night. If Boston comes back and beats the Yankees Girardi is done in NY.

  535. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Did AJ even know he might be pitching out of the bp? Or did they just surprise him with this.

  536. Yank 97 September 28th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Not sure if I want to face Texas now that Boston is in the playoffs.

    I think the Tigers match up much better vs. the Yankees than they do vs. Boston and their lefty pop. So many of our hitters struggle with hard throwing righties with good off-speed stuff. Obviously Tex and Swisher. Jeter/ARod will struggle with hard throwing righties busting them inside.

    The Rangers on the otherhand, would struggle with the lineups we put out there vs. RHP but their LH starters would give Boston trouble.

    Even though Detroit is not a great match up for us… I’m willing to take the risk that Texas knocks off Boston. So I guess Boston and the Yanks would both get the less desired of the two matchups.

    I’m willing to take the risk of a tougher matchup if Boston would as well. Last thing I want to see is Boston in the ALCS.

    Damn you Girardi for even making this a discussion :(

  537. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Betsy, it is crazy that Hughes only got 1 inning.

  539. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Is Chad suggesting that AJ is the #3 because he’s coming in? If so………I need a throwing up emoticon.

    Game over for B-More.

    Sucks to the playoffs.

    :(

  541. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    LockDown, it makes no sense…….but then even had he been given one more inning, it wouldn’t make much difference. I just don’t see how he can even be a long man……..so maybe he’ll be a 5th or 6th inning guy and Colon will be the long man.

  542. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    I don’t think AJ is the #3 starter if he throws in this game.

  543. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    I expected AJ to possibly be in the mix. So, I am not surprised.

    :(

  545. Tank September 28th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Boston did take 3 of 4 against Texas in Arlington earlier this year.

    As Pat M said earlier, they are a sleeping dog that you don’t want to wake up. Different sport, but remind me of the Packers in the NFL who barely got into the playoffs and needed a bunch of things to go right (Giants collapsing vs. Eagles, Bucs losing their last 2, Bears resting some guys, etc.) but they were an ultra-talented team that underachieved in the regular season and had a lot of injuries, then they proceeded to win it all. Boston reminds me of that – 2 studs at the top of the rotation, 3 studs in the bullpen, and they have 3 MVP candidates in their lineup plus guys like Laveryway, Salty, Crawford, Drew, etc. who are very talented

    I don’t look at their collapse as particularly meaningful, I look at their physical talent and that is what I’m worried about.

  546. Gary September 28th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    Jack, I hope not because IMO Freddy is the obvious choice………. I just wonder that there is nothing AJ can do to make the Yankees lose faith in him. After the year Freddy has had and what he did last out, if AJ is the 3 starter, then it really speaks negatively about the Yankees’ decision making

  548. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    If all is resolved tonight, will mlb put up our playoff game times for necessary games later tonight?

  551. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    Betsy

    I think he was just gettting an inning of work in. Nothing to do with his role. He may pitch Friday so why over due it.

  552. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    I hope Burnett is just getting his work in. I don’t think we can start Colon over him in the playoffs.

  553. RMS September 28th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    What’s there to say about the Yankees right now.
    ===========================================
    Really?
    Who is in the rotation after CC and Nova?
    Will AJ be in the rotation?
    Will Alex, who is hurting, be ready to go? Will he DH or play 3rd?
    How will Girardi set up the batting order?
    Will Girardi carry 2 lefties out of the pen?
    You are right, nothing to say about the Yankees.

    hahaha wow.

  556. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Tank – yeah and they had gone 3-8 against the Yankees earlier this year. Earlier this year doesn’t count when you’re talking about a team that has tanked and whose pitching has fallen apart.

  557. Laura - I Bleed Blue September 28th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Rain delay! Who knows what wackiness will ensue after it…

  560. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    I think if AJ were going to be the #3 starter in the ALDS, Joe would have him throw a sim game, not relieve out of the bullpen.

    I think it’s going to be Freddy.

  561. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Finally it’s raining in Baltimore and game is in delay. RS lose, game goes extra innings and RS fly sleepless into Tampa for a playoff game!

  562. Yanks78 September 28th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    The worst part about all this is that Red Robin is vindicated – his predictions have turned out right provided BAL loses.

    Just an awful night – nothing good at all coming from it. Yeah, that is great that the Yankees are carrying their 1-game win as momentum in the playoffs. It’s not like they are facing a team with 3 hard throwing righties so what they did vs. a lefty was meaningless. Also, we all know regular season carries into Oct…

  563. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Arod looks loose. No worries.

  564. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    the yankees should have lost the game on purpose.

    the red sox are their primary rival.

    if they can increase the odds of their primary rival being eliminated they needed to do it.

    “Really?
    Who is in the rotation after CC and Nova?
    Will AJ be in the rotation?
    Will Alex, who is hurting, be ready to go? Will he DH or play 3rd?
    How will Girardi set up the batting order?
    Will Girardi carry 2 lefties out of the pen?
    You are right, nothing to say about the Yankees.”

    Why you got any say in all those things? I’m content with whatever is decided and believe in whoever Girardi puts out on the field. So I don’t need to play arm-chair manager. Never have, never will.

    I expected AJ to possibly be in the mix. So, I am not surprised.
    ///

    Yankfem, I think if it’s Detroit, AJ’s our man for Game 3. Freddy for Texas.

    But never mind that, our boy is still shaking off the rust but he threw a few nice curves and changes, didn’t he? He was locating inside too once he settled in. He still looked a little stiff. I was hoping to see him go another inning, but I’m glad he at least got some work in.

    Good to see Hughes get some work and throwing 95. Don’t see why he can’t have that velo if he comes in for an inning or two to help us out. Even if he’s in low leverage or doesn’t make the cut for ALDS, it’s good to see him bounce back there after the first batter pretty nicely.

  573. Abomb82 September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    We all really shouldn’t have gotten your hopes up about the Sox collapse. Weshould have figured something like this would happen, especially after Girardi’s white flag performance on Sunday.

    We have no one to blame but ourselves.

  574. pat September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    A rain shortened 1 run game would be a PR nightmare that I would think MLB would want to avoid so I would guess people at Camden are in it for the long haul .

    Hey all, how’s it going tonight?

  576. David in Cal September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    I agree, jacksquat. Overall Freddy had a much better season than AJ. Freddy’s last good game, after a slump, makes him the obvious choice for #3 starter. I’m not sure AJ will be on the squad at all. It’s up to AJ to show he can be effective as a relief pitcher.

  577. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    A five hour rain delay in Baltimore would be nice.

  578. Bret The Hitman September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    I think Burnett is getting the Game 4 start and Colon will be first out of the pen in that game if AJ can’t give length.

  579. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    ARod is fine. Why make him play on the turf?

    Also, I think the #3 starter depends on who the opponent is, which they don’t know yet. If it’s Detroit, it’s probably AJ. If it’s Texas, it’s Garcia. So you might as well see how AJ can warm up out of the pen. What’s the harm? Covering all the bases. Answering as many of the questions as you can.

  580. blake September 28th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Here is the thing though…..they needed to play the regulars tonight so that they could get some reps in for Friday……and the players are going to play when out there. The only thong Girardi coukd do to “lose” the game was to not pitch any of his good pitchers……and he’s done that…….and the Rays can’t hit and Price was terrible.

    Swish and the gang ought to be proud of themselves. They did what every other team does, help the Red Sox. At this moment right now, I have more respect for the Orioles for trying this month against the Red Sox than I do the Yankees, who gave away Sunday night’s Red Sox game by scoring 3 off Lackey and failing to tack on runs as they’ve done fairly easily tonight and then putting in Proctor. I hope Proctor’s arms fall off, literally, and he’s left with stumps.

  586. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    “Thanks to our Yankees. The Sucks will get a full day of rest before Game 1.

    You must have wet your diaper at least 10 times in excitement. Don’t want to rain on your parade, little one, but one full day isn’t enough for Theo to find three starters and relief pitching.

    But good try. I’m thinking your primal cry of “MOMMY COMFORT ME” that was heard throughout the month of September isn’t going to be retired just quite yet.

    The strangest thing in all this to me was Romine getting two ABs in extras and not using Andruw to pinch hit for Gardner against Morales throwing 96. You really want to throw up hearing about how their brilliant bullpen shut down the Yankee lineup. Throwing Proctor was the icing on the cake.

    Pruf, Betances did an excellent job for his first mlb start, especially considering the long layoff since starting. I too would have liked to see him go an extra inning. We would have seen more of the real Dellin in that 3rd.

    Hughes threw 14/20 strikes. Velo was decent. Good for him.

  593. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    Girardi pitched Betances, Kontos, Laffey and Valdes today for 5 innings – with AJ and Proctor to come. How is that not giving Tampa every advantage?

    “If Boston comes back and beats the Yankees Girardi is done in NY.”

    If we had an owner who cared, this would be true. Does Hal even know when the playoffs start? Can he even name 10 current players outside of the core 3?

    There is no accountability. Girardi is going to get off scot-free by management for this screw up of his. George would have NEVER allowed his manager to purposely let Boston in the playoffs (and playing his regulars decreased Tampa’s chances of making the playoffs significantly). He would have made sure Boston missed it.

    Playing the game the right way and integrity is NONSENSE. Girardi had the chance to clearly dictate his team’s path to the WS and eliminate perhaps out biggest threat by managing differently. He put his arrogant face on and hid behind the “integrity” BS.

    We’ll see how much integrity he has when Beckett-CC matchup in 2 weeks. I bet he would wish he knocked out the sleeping giant when he had the chance.

    It’s really pathetic to read from Yankee fans who wished the team would throw this game to spite the Red Sox.

    The Red Sox really suck right now. Who cares if they make the playoffs? They won’t go far. The Yankees just have to take care of their business, by resting or working guys at the right times, and by playing well against a team competing for a playoff spot.

    I’d much rather see them team go into the playoffs hot than flat. Playing good baseball never hurts.

    Thank you. It is not being “scared” of Boston. It is increasing your own team’s chances at winning the AL pennant.

    Tampa is a significantly easier opponent than Boston and Girardi could have had the choice to let Tampa get in and no one would have blamed him. He chose to allow the tougher team in the playoffs and now we’ll see if the chickens come home to roost.

As to Joe being in trouble, only with fake Yankee fans. Any real fan would know that the Steinbrenners want to win and have no interest in their team throwing games just to MAYBE help prevent the Sox from moving on. What Steinbrenner would ever be afraid of Boston?

  623. Abomb82 September 28th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    I think what happened is that Girardi received so much criticism for taking the foot off the gas last year that he did the opposite this year – he is playing guys, even guys who are not 100% every day and running them into the ground trying to generate momentum.

    I don’t think the opponent matters to him, he is just trying something opposite of what he did last year to see if it would yield a different result. Kind of stupid if you ask me considering we got to within 2 games of the WS last year with a rotation that was in shambles.

  624. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Tyler,

    I’ve blocked some of those mid 2000 teams from my memory……I loved them because they were the Yankees……but just a whole different feel to those teams.

  626. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    RadioKev, the Red Sox really sucked in the first 3 games of the ALCS 2004. They also really sucked in the first 4 games of the ALCS 2007. They also really sucked in the 1st half of the 2004 regular season. The Rockies won 22 of 23 games going into the 2007 World Series. Whats your point???? That the Red Sox cant win?

    As Yanks78 eloquently put, let’s see what happens, and if we get beaten in the ALCS, provided we both make it to the ALCS, by the Red Sox, I hope some crazed fan runs over Girardi outside the stadium and makes General Joe eat tires.

    Look at them… we’re just trying to tune up for the postseason and we’re having no problem sticking it to them. They couldn’t even hit Colon/Noesi and our D relievers tonight. Even Boston would have pounded the pitchers we threw out the last 3 days…

    Hmmm. I’d like to see someone take Randy on here. Randy has more baseball knowledge in his little finger than most of the rest of us put together. He’s more than a fan hiding behind a keyboard. He’s played with major league players. He’s played the game and he knows the game and he knows the acceptable conventions.

    So Randy believes that hoping for a Rays win was an acceptable thing to do. I’d say he also believes that those of us hoping for a Rays win and an Orioles win didn’t become any less Yankee fans because of it.

    Seems Randy also believes that the Yankees not playing for blood wasn’t going to disable them in the postseason and that four losses in a row wasn’t threatening (boo!) to the Yankees ability to win. Seems Randy has enough faith in the Yankees to know they know how to prepare for the postseason, win or lose, and that a loss tonight shouldn’t have kept any Yankee fans up nights.

    Of course I don’t want to speak for Randy…

  642. Bret The Hitman September 28th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    I’m a life long Yankee fan, the last thing I want to see is another match with the Red Sox.

    Why? Because they are too comfortable and familiar with us. As alll their batters are with Mariano much more so then the other teams in the tournament.

    This Sox team was built to beat the Yankees anything beyond that is creme dela creme.

    We had the boot on their throats Sunday night and Girardi let Romine bat with the winning run on third and then brought in the stiff Proctor.

    That he has to live with, he had better hope he gets beyond those decisions in the week ahead..

  647. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    Exactly Bryan. Nothing to do with fear. We have a chance to help pin a GREAT COLLAPSE on them, ya know, like 1978, and also like 2004 when they pinned the great collapse on us. We can return the favor and make this 2011 Red Sox team live in infamy

  648. Chambliss September 28th, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    Pruf, Betances did an excellent job for his first mlb start, especially considering the long layoff since starting. I too would have liked to see him go an extra inning. We would have seen more of the real Dellin in that 3rd.

    Hughes threw 14/20 strikes. Velo was decent. Good for him.

    “As Yanks78 eloquently put, let’s see what happens, and if we get beaten in the ALCS, provided we both make it to the ALCS, by the Red Sox, I hope some crazed fan runs over Girardi outside the stadium and makes General Joe eat tires.”

    I suspect that those who wanted to play hard these final games and supported Joe will be singing a different tune if Boston takes us out in the ALCS

    How many chances do you have to single-handedly determine the fate of the most dangerous playoff team out there and knock em’ out?

    I’m 50/50 over who is a worse matchup for us between Detroit or Boston, but eitehr way, we could have knocked out 1 of our bad matchups. TX poses no threat to us, nor does this Tampa team. Only Detroit and Boston. And now, thanks to Joe, both will be in the playoffs and our path will probably go through both of them.

    RadioKev, the Red Sox really sucked in the first 3 games of the ALCS 2004. They also really sucked in the first 4 games of the ALCS 2007. They also really sucked in the 1st half of the 2004 regular season. The Rockies won 22 of 23 games going into the 2007 World Series. Whats your point???? That the Red Sox cant win?
    ———

    The Red Sox were kicking the tires on acquiring Bruce Chen. You’re kidding, right?

    That team is so outlandishly depleted. They’re up one run on the ORIOLES right now, and the announcers are flipping out like they’re on the verge of actually winning the World Series.

    Gonzalez injured, Lester & Aceves getting burned out, Bard crapping the bed, Beckett sucking, and then almost no pitching whatsoever after that.

    “Even if the Yankees tanked this game, the Rays would get slaughtered by Boston in a 1-game playoff, even with the Sox decimated and Youkless.”

    Absolutely and unequivocally disagree. Rays own the season’s series something like 12-6. Playing a bloated paper balloon team who has just about managed to keep up with the Orioles is far different from facing the Yankees.

    If the Sux go to Tampa, they will be chewed up like alligator bait in the Everglades.

    The Rays were playing tight because they were playing for their lives and they were playing the BEST team in major league baseball, while their competition was off trying to fend off the Orioles. No comparison. Let the Rays play the hapless (and very lucky so far tonight Sux) and it’s a totally different ball game.

    I would rather face the Sox in the post-season, because there is not team that I would rather beat ( except for a WS game). I do think they are an inferior team to the Yankees.

    The only people I feel have a legitimate gripe on Giradi are the ones who were at the stadium for that double-header. They had to watch Proctor run out from the pen in the 14th, and if it was me ( I would have stayed) I would have been pissed off too.

    Other than that….. this is not on the Yankees or Joe at all. This is squarely on the Rays and the Sox.

    The issue I have with game three of the Sox series was Girardi not wanting to pinch hit guys, but Cano for 15 innings was ok there. Then we are throwing pitchers out there and make moves these games. Why not play it the same way and avoid injuries. The way this played out this deserved a one game playoff between the Sox and Rays but the Yankees basically backed the Sox into these playoffs, their birth was not deserved.

    Tank, if Girardi played to win the third game of the Sux series, this entire discussion could be unnecessary.

    If I’m miffed about anything, it’s about that asinine 14-inning – though some have pointed out that Girardi was tossed before certain pitching decisions were made (I believe he calls the game anyway, but who knows?)

    If the purists here are upset that anyone would consider Girardi not playing to win, surely they were distraught beyond belief when with the bases loaded and situations were big hits were needed he left the big guns on the bench!

  740. Tabbert September 28th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Every team that has made the playoffs or that is trying to make the playoffs rolled out their A lineup tonight. cards, brew crew, sox, rays, yanks, tigers, braves, dbacks have upton, young, roberts all in the lineup. So…. i guess all of the managers are stupid for not resting their key guys right before the playoffs. LOL. I’m guessing that these guys understand how to run their teams just a tad better than all of us posting on lohud. So, for all of you throwing a hissy fit that our regulars arent getting a day off…. GET OVER IT.

  743. Yanks78 September 28th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    Prufrock –

    That is what I’m saying. Resting guys who have been playing all these games in a row and are banged up does not constitute “tanking”.

    He hasn’t even pitched Proctor in this meaningless series, yet he was used in the 14 inning game before much better options like Kontos, Ayala, etc?

    That is what ticks me off – his managing in the 14 inning game. He had like 5-6 chances to pinch hit for someone like Gardner, Golson, Romine, etc. and he didn’t do it once.

    And why did his regulars play pretty much every inning these 3 games after playing a zillion games in a row? It is well known that Martin is banged up. A-Rod was in there tonight and had to be pulled because his knee wasn’t 100%. If there was even a hint of him not being 100%, why the heck was he in there in the 1st place?

    Girardi deserves a lot of criticism for his managing the last 4 days, which directly impacted Boston (a far tougher team) making the playoffs over a far weaker Tampa team.

  744. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    Nice job, Girardi. Not only injuring your own players but also handing the Sucks ticket to playoffs.

    Other than that….. this is not on the Yankees or Joe at all. This is squarely on the Rays and the Sox.

    Well no, almost everyone in the lineup has been subbed out and only “lesser” pitchers have pitched, so that’s not managing all out to win by any means. Which is why it’s strange to have Montero still in there with Romine available.

  760. mick September 28th, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    The thing that I don’t get when it comes to all of the people who are (very high) up on their high horses about Girardi not throwing games, etc. is this…

    Do you not see the amount of FAIL involved in his managing of Sunday’s game? He inexplicably left Nova in WAY too long after it was clear he was done, pitched Proctor ahead of other guys, didn’t pitch Andruw Jones, etc. It was horrendous.

    Why did he manage that game like that?

  764. Carlo September 28th, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    When the tying run comes to the plate, girardi better call on proctor. Anything else would be uncivilized.

    Great job, Joe. Did Maddon steal your wife or something? Why are you so eager to get Boston into the playoffs at all costs?

    I have honestly never seen anything like this before. It is like he has a deal with someone to make sure he does all he can to get Boston in the playoffs.

  774. Daniel in Toronto September 28th, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    “To me, if you’re going to make Montero a catcher, you go in knowing he’s going to get beat up – and that he’s going to eventually catch 120 something games a year.”

    I think ultimately you want him at 1st base and hitting. If he can catch some while he young that will increase his value…..but his bat has a chance to be really special….like top 10 in baseball special….so I don’t think you want him back there much more than half the time.

  964. LGY September 28th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    Wade?

    F Girardi.

  965. Tabbert September 28th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    kotchman is soooo slow

  966. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    It’s also comical how this year the Yankees are trying too hard to win, and last year they weren’t trying hard enough to win.

    It’s always something, isn’t it?

  967. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    It’s all on the Os now.

  968. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    I really can’t believe that girardi pitched wade and is trying to win this game. Helping Boston like this really makes me sick.

  969. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Blake, with Tex here, that’s not happening………..I get what you are saying, but the problem with that is that you’d have to have a BUC who is basically good enough to be a regular. It is kind of too bad he’s a catcher by trade.

  970. LGY September 28th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Now Proctor is warming?

    Friggin joke.

  971. JM September 28th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Girardi screwed this up so badly —- helping Boston get into the playoffs.

    He has tempted fate – now chances are, he will be seeing a Beckett-CC matchup about 2 weeks from now.

    I;m going to be sick

  978. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    But he didn’t pitch Wade in the 14 inning horror.

    Makes no sense.

  979. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Blake, what do you do until then ? That’s not for another 5 years.

  998. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Goody. Proctor will now lose it, and save the rest of the bullpen.

  1002. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Holy Crap! Tied the game. :shock:

    This is not what I would ever want to see from the Yankees. Or was Girardi toying with the RS?

  1003. pkyankfan69 September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Boston better win now

  1004. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    This couldn’t be scripted better if you tried.

    He could have put Proctor in but didn’t. (Nobody can accuse him of tanking.)

  1005. blake September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    and Girardi goes for the throat now with Proctor

  1006. Bronx Jeers September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Sox fans can officially hate the Yanks again.

  1007. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    And Joe Girardi proves he’s smarter than all of us. Scott Proctor in the game now, until it’s over.

  1008. ac1 September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    bring on proctor to complete it..

  1009. mick September 28th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    FUUUUUCKKKKK YES

  1012. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    So it’s a joke that Girardi wants to win the game and not just tank it? I guess the Yankees, if they end up facing the Sox in the ALCS, should just forfeit since they have absolutely no chance.

  1013. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Yes now proctor give up the game!!!!

    Can you believe that-a foul pole homer. Now it goes extra innings with Proctor.

  1021. Wang IS Taiwan September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Ah…dear Scottie. I hope the Rays and Sux have to play again tomorrow. Wear ‘em out.

    The amazing Wade gives up a homer. Shocking!!!! :cry:

  1023. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    This is not good for the Yankees. I’m sorry, but even with the stupid revolving door for the bullpen, I am not liking this from the Yankees. Not at all.

  1024. Yankees_Fan September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    LOL We blew a 7 run lead in 2 innings to the punch-less Rays…. AWESOME

  1026. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    I know we have won everything BUT you can not feel good about how we are playing… I dont like this.. Cant believe we let them back in the game.

    Hopefully the day off will allow the yankees to refocus themselves..

  1027. J. Alfred Prufrock September 28th, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    We got bullied and guilted by MLB to play these games as if they mattered to us, and our own postseason objectives be damned.

    There’s no other explanation for Corey Wade’s presence in this game, and Proctor’s lack of it. It really adds up, when you figure in Girardi’s comment about Ayala.

    WOW.

    Like UnKnown said, we’ll see Proctor in the 14th.

    Hey, Girardi gave it his best shot.

  1028. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    Wow, this game thread is impossible…….

  1029. PittsburghYankeeFan September 28th, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    this is hilarious

  1038. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Proctor! but if Rays don’t win it here, by not pitching Proctor earlier we are forced into extras…

  1039. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Wade is awesome. Deserves a spot on the roster. He shouldn’t have come into this game. He’s not a closer. Joe burned him. Hope it doesn’t mess with his psyche.

  1040. CB September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    What makes baseball special is that the game is not defined by time. It creates a texture of experience that is entirely different than other sports and most facets of our lives which are so dominated by the clock.

  1041. Eroc September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Girardi is pushing all the right buttons tonight… I knew he wasn’t that dumb to allow the Sox into the playoffs ;)

  1042. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Way to go, Nunie.

  1043. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

  1046. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Not happy but not upset either. Yanks obviously would probably have this game in the bag up 7-0 in the 8th with D-Rob and Rivera.

  1047. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    I would caution you all to be careful what you root for tonight, because it will have no effect on events in the postseason.

  1048. Benny Blanco September 28th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

  1049. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    This is a complete melt down by the Yankees. I don’t care that this is a meaningless game in the scheme of things for the Yankees, but to see them give up all these runs in a game that was a laugher is something to be concerned about for the Playoffs.

  1050. blake September 28th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    Benny,

    They Yankees won the real game 7-0. Has they used their best relievers Tampa would have likely never scored and certainly wouldn’t have scored 7 runs. The starters played well heading into the playoffs.

  1051. Wang IS Taiwan September 28th, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    Kind of mean to do this to Proctor.

  1065. PittsburghYankeeFan September 28th, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    Look–they would have taken 2/3 from Tampa, as well as swept the Sox, if this mattered at all. Everyone would have played. The Yankees are playing that well.

    If they don’t beat Detroit, they don’t beat Detroit. So be it. I will say this–Detroit won its first regular season series against the Yankees for the first time in years this year.

    It’s just incredibly wild and fun to watch this amazing Sox collapse. It’s historic–you will be telling your grandchildren about this night.

    How can anyone be happy that we’re going into the playoffs like this?

    WE JUST BLEW A 7 RUN LEAD TO THIS DEAD TEAM! And we did it using 3 guys who are supposed to be in our playoff bullpen – Wade, Ayala, and Logan.

    Soriano blew the game yesterday. The starting pitching is still meh. The lineup is hit or miss against a righty.

    I don’t see why everyone is cheering that we’re going into the playoffs losing 4 in a row and looking like this.

  1068. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    Lock, this is not going to play with the psyches of anyone except the Yankee posters who cannot apply perspective and cannot deal with Yankee losses.

    Do you think any member of the Yankee team is now doubting the Yankees because relief pitching that hasn’t played in a while gave up runs? This game means nothing to the Yankees.

  1072. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    This isn’t good. We don’t want to go to extras; we are supposed to be resting players. Better make sure every position is a scrub and Scotty pitches until his arm falls off.

  1077. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Proctor is guaranteed to give up a run in the bottom of the 10th. No way can he pitch 2 shut out innings. Girardi should leave him out there until he gives up a run.

  1078. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

  1079. Carlo September 28th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Yank1 – hate to break it to you but wade/logan aren’t going to matter in the playoffs. Its starters + soriano/drob/mariano. That’s basically it in high leverage spots from the 6th inning on

  1080. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Now the question is, if the Yankees take the lead by 3 runs or less, does Rivera come in?

    trisha,

    I hope you’re right regarding Wade, who had no business in this game as he was probably told he wasn’t going to pitch today. I know the team is fine as our players are not even in the game.

    I do think Boone & Ayala lost focus. With such a big lead & a meaningless game, they just didn’t make their pitches. Boone will be fine. Not sure Ayala is on the roster though anyway.

  1084. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    This is a Yankees blog. Not a Rays blog. I have every right to come here and expect to see people who want the Yankees to win.

    I think Cano is the only regular still in there and hes’ just hitting

  1088. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    Yogi, this was a total meltdown, I agree. They stopped hitting and some relievers who were going to make the roster got their heads handed to them…..but it’s ok, because maybe the Sox won’t make the playoffs. Great way to go into the playoffs, yeah it is.

  1089. Chris W September 28th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    The Red Sox have a far, FAR more dangerous offense than the normally punchless Rays. The Yankees have also handled Tampa and beaten their vaunted starting pitching. I’ll take them in a seven-game series.

    Girardi saw his A-team bludgeon David Price and a bunch of kids shutout the Rays. And then he saw his B team cough up a lead to a determined, back-to-the-wall team.

    Somehow I think he’s okay with this.

  1090. mick September 28th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    If youre a Red Sox player sitting in Baltimore watching this unfold during the rain delay. Asking yourself if you hope the game eventually gets called guaranteeing a trip to Tampa or hoping it stops raining and having to get through another gut wrenching 3 innings just to get to Tampa.

  1094. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Joe has to /Proctor–Proctor

    Even if he has to throws 4 or 5 innings :shock:

    Jeers great job!!on the Haiku.

  1095. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Proctor :) :) :)

  1096. EA September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Hopefully we can scratch a run or two across here so Proctor has a margin for error in the bottom of the 9th.

  1097. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Girardi has asked for league permission to use Proctor for as many innings as needed.

    Permission has been granted.

  1098. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    “How can anyone be happy that we’re going into the playoffs like this?

    WE JUST BLEW A 7 RUN LEAD TO THIS DEAD TEAM! And we did it using 3 guys who are supposed to be in our playoff bullpen – Wade, Ayala, and Logan.”

    Did you ever hear the saying that every team that faces the Yankee brings their A game and tries to play their best baseball? Well then you have to be able to accept that a Yankee team getting its work in and with nothing left to play for isn’t necessarily going to be playing at the level of a team playing for its life. At this point they should be doing the minimum necessary to be ready to start Friday.

    Phils lost 8 games in a row. Do you think that played with their heads? You automatically let down when you’ve done what you have to and are just having batting practice!

    Can you be upset with the Yankee offense? Doubtful? Are you upset with pitchers who probably won’t even be on the postseason roster or someone having an off day who is usually very good?

    Perspective. It’s all good. The Yankees know what they’re doing and the Yankees will be fine.

  1099. pat September 28th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Rays PR just announced that the Rays are 8-5 in extra innings this year while the Yankees are 4-11.

  1100. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Blake, the real games lasts 9 innings. They stopped hitting……….and Ayala was considered a lock basically to make the roster. This pen is very shaky outside of Mo and Robertson. Blowing a 7 run lead sucks.

  1101. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Aceves plunks 1st batter in ribs

  1102. blake September 28th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    I complete meltdown would have been if the NY Yankees had lost a 7-0 lead….not SWB and a bunch of journeyman relievers.

  1103. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Aceves hits Reynolds; all the pitching getting to Ace.

  1104. LGY September 28th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Incredible. I got to a bar in the 8th inning. Wall to wall baseball and Yankee fans cheering as the Rays storm back. Such a bizarre scene.

    One Boston fan here and he’s absolutely freaking out. Hilarious.

  1105. pat September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    “Permission has been granted.”

    Torre answered the phone at the League office?

  1106. devcon13 September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    And of course, now the Red Sox cannot complain if the Rays win a game in extra innings off Scott Proctor.
    ___________
    But you know that they will…

  1110. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Posada definitely shouldn’t start against verlander. He will have no chance…

  1111. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Last thing they needed was extra innings. But I am sure Proctor will cough up a big bomb in the 10th

  1112. Chris W September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Also, forcing the Rays and Sox into a one-game playoff will also likely leave them very tired for their ALDS series.

    Loosing four in a row when you aren’t trying is not a concern. This team has won 97 games with a patchwork rotation. They’ve earned it.

  1113. randy l. September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    “You knuckleheads happy now?”

    no that you mention it i’m feeling much better :)

  1114. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Krazy Kyle vs. Proctor. lol.

  1115. Chase September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    That was a strike.

  1116. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Aceves has hit 14 batters this year! Holy yikes!

  1117. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Trisha, it was you who told your car had been scratched because of a yankees plate? If that is the case, maybe now you should ask for political asylum, LOL

  1118. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Hey lots of you wanted this to go down to a one-game playoff so that both teams would be totally exhausted. I wanted it over before that.

    You may be getting your wish.

  1119. mick September 28th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Girardi is a genius-look at how he pulled this off…Boston hates us even more than ever.
    Now the choke will be complete…Trisha I feel your joy!

  1120. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Betsy, I’m not sure I considered Ayala a lock. I rather have Hughes.

  1121. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Betsy,

    come on now…..they were up 7-0 and Ayala had nothing…..had this been a real game then Robertson slams the door right there and the game is already over.

  1122. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    He is warming up DRob. No way!

  1123. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Villa, I wonder if this is a Yankees blog now…….sure doesn’t seem like it

  1124. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Another HBP!

  1125. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    If girardi pitches Robertson he should be fired on the spot

  1126. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    D-Rob better not be warming up! Jeez!

  1127. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

  1128. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Pitt, you might want to wait until the Sox lose before you celebrate

  1129. Chase September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    If Joe honestly even WARMS robertson up, I’ll lose it.

    He’s our BEST PITCHER in the pen and we can’t have him wasting a single bullet. He’s pitched a lot this year, including LAST NIGHT.

    Joe, please use Proctor only. Thanks.

  1130. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    It seems almost beyond plausibility for Proctor to be able to hold a lead even if the Yanks can get a lead.

    And if he has to go more than one inning?

    Just couldn’t happen.

    Could it?

  1131. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Aceves starts off the 7th with two HBP…

  1132. hardwired7 September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Joe needs a CAT scan if DRob even throws a warmup pitch.

  1133. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Maybe Aceves has been pitched too much? Just a hunch.

  1134. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Chase, he’s not better than Mo.

  1135. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    OK, with D-Rob heading to the bullpen, it is beyond a doubt that Binder Joe is both stupid and certifiably insane.

  1136. randy l. September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    aceves hits two batters of the first three he faces?

    three run homer would be just about perfect right about now.

  1137. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Let’s go O’s!!!

  1138. mick September 28th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

  1139. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    So wade & drob can pitch this game… but A-rod/Jeter/Jones can’t pitch hit on sunday & Proctor is given the ball….

  1140. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Hughes should have pitched more than 1 inning…………..

    AS to Robertson, that’ s the only thing I agree with folks on – no way he should pitch tonight

  1141. EA September 28th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    He is using Robertson?

    This guy has lost his mind…

  1142. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    I think he’s sending Robertson down there for show

    How ironic two Braves pitchers signed by the Yankees to determine the WC, with the Braves still tied in the 12th on the failure of their ROY closer Kimbrel to finish off the Phillies.

  1153. EA September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Why the hell is Dickerson stealing bases now?

    The Yankees are trying their hardest to screw this up but Tampa is not letting them.

  1154. SonyBravo September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    I’d hate to see Proctor blow out his arm. How’s about we let Swisher pitch? ;-)

    “We choke and the joke is on Boston.

    GO O’S!!!!!

  1156. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    He better not bring in Robertson…. That would make me question Girardi. You’ve played it conservatively thus far. Don’t be stupid here.

  1157. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Betsy,

    Not pitching Hughes for 2 innings is what’s gonna bite Girardi.

  1158. mick September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    did aceves hit another batter yet?

  1159. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    He can’t pitch Robertson, he just can’t. Even Joe could not be that stupid… I hope.

  1160. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Chase, there’s no point in getting into it, but until Mo retires, he’s still the best. In any case, Robertson should not be in.

  1161. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Romine PH for Montero? Way to go!

  1162. ac1 September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    He can throw Garcia no?
    Or…. Put a position player in to pitch and end it all…

  1163. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Romine looks good.

  1164. mick September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

  1165. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Austin Romine in a big situation – no pinch hitter – it’s deja vu all over again.

    I do believe this is the most interesting and exciting last day of the season I have seen in over 40 years of watching baseball…1967 was pretty good too…but this has been great.

  1169. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Dickerson is trying to show he belongs on the playoff roster.

  1172. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    jmv,

    Montero left the game after being hit on the hand by a pitch. That’s why Romine’s in.

  1173. EA September 28th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Most managers just want this game to end… it’s like the last ST game. Girardi seems to want to actually win it.

    They might win 98 games instead of 97… WOOHOO!!!

  1174. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    mick, it ain’t over ’til it’s over, but what a juxtaposition we are seeing! Two scant innings ago we were thinking the O’s, who were losing, would have to win or it was over. Two innings and a rain delay later, we are seeing the possibility that if the O’s win, it is OVER for the Sux!!!!

    Not counting chickens, but wow.

  1175. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Blake, the pen is a real worry for me……..they blew the game.

    By the way, to continue on Montero, what do you propose the Yankees do with him until Tex is gone? If you want to not get him beat up, do you agree you need another regular catcher as BUC?

  1176. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Swish was already replaced by Dickerson. No can pitch. :(

  1177. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Betsy, Noesi threw 59 pitches on monday. So I don’t think he should pitch.

  1178. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    I’m sorry. I really love the Yankees, but these had been the funniest games of the season (funniest, not the best)

  1179. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    I hope Girardi wasn’t planning on using DRob for the save if the Yanks got the lead…

  1180. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Damn Bal can’t buy a key hit tonight

  1181. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    There goes the gifted Aceves saving the RS again.

  1182. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    no… montero left with injury

  1186. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    If they weren’t getting ready for friday, Mo, DRob and/or Soriano would have been brought in.

    But the three guys Joe left til last are also his go-to guys. So, not happy about that.

  1187. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Girardi better not take proctor out. Let him do what he does best…

  1188. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    “I do believe this is the most interesting and exciting last day of the season I have seen in over 40 years of watching baseball…1967 was pretty good too…but this has been great.”

    Oh my Lord, yes for me!

    Meanwhile I left B’More and went back and a commercial is on so I guess Ace got out of it.

  1189. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Proctor is end to the end…or a few more hitters…same thing

  1190. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Betsy,

    I answered that earlier…..DH some, catch some, then let him start playing 1B some in a couple of years.

    I’m not really worried about their pen…..I think the back end is really good and that Hughes, AJ, Wade, etc all are good arms out there for them. Hughes looked better tonight.

  1191. ralphfl September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Proctor the human get the game over pitcher.You ever want the game to end just bring him in one way or the other the game will be over.

  1192. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    This game is utterly meaningless for the yankees prospects of winning in the post season outside of its influence on who qualifies.

    It is nothing more than a spring training game for them.

  1193. Don September 28th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Proctor, again, why, why, why? He will lose this game.

  1194. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Just no homer walkoff here, please.

    Though it feels destined.

  1195. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Proctor = BP

  1196. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Triple, we can hope that the perfect script plays out and if need be, BMore wins it in the bottom of the 9th.

    Or according to some here even better would be to let both wild card teams have to play another day and then start their playoffs Friday!

  1197. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Lock Down, ok I didn’t know that – thanks.

    Villa, absolutely; I don’t see how anyone can be happy about that – and this on top of Soriano’s awful performance yesterday.

  1198. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    basically what I mean is that Ayala isn’t going to pitch in the playoffs unless the game is out of hand…..and Wade is probably the 4th or 5th option as well. Those guys decided this game and they won’t do that in a playoff situation.

  1199. Chris W September 28th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Wade and Ayala have been effective all year long. Boone’s been inconsistent but he’s gotten some key outs.

    The Yankees have one of the best bullpens in baseball. Just because they don’t have a bunch of proven arms and blew two meaningless games does not change that.

  1200. umbrelladoc September 28th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Indeed, Proctor is a “closer” of sorts.

  1201. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you CB. I know people here liste to you.

  1203. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Blake, then the Yankees are going to need a semi-regular catcher as BUC – I don’t see how they can do that………

  1204. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    trisha,

    I’m down for a Longoria Grand slam in the 9th off Papelbon tomorrow for a BS and a Rays victory

  1205. scuzzles September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    This must be the craziest nite of baseball ever. And Im starting to feel bad for Proctor. Is this normal?

  1206. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    CB-

    Will be interesting to see if Ayala still makes the likely 11 man pitching roster for the ALDS against Detroit.

  1207. Tar September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Since it’s has gone this long, I want Johnny Damon to end it.

  1208. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Don, I think that’s Joe’s goal.

  1209. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    The Yankees really do not need an extra innings game. They need to get home.

    Unfortunately, the Rays offense is so bad who knows what is going to happen.

  1210. Yankees_Fan September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    Wow, this game thread is impossible…….
    ———————————————-

    Exactly! Fans don’t know what they want. (When do they ever?)

    Yanks build a big lead, Girardi is horrible and we don’t know what we are doing. The Yanks blow the lead, the sky is falling, we are playing terrible.

    I, for one, never wanted to lose this game and admit it sucks two pitchers expected to help us in the postseason (Ayala and Wade) have been the ones responsible.

  1211. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    Proctor, guys need to rest

  1212. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    soriano + robertson + mariano…everybody else only pitches if the game is a bit out of reach or a pitcher is pulled early. tho i wouldn’t be surprised if that’s expanded to include hughes…

    hughes needs to work on his conditioning – he is getting chubby…probably why he constantly gets hurt…

  1213. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    Swish could probably pitch better than Proctor. Good thing he’s not available.

  1214. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    YT-

    This game isn’t going to have any influence over roster decisions for the post season outside of potential injuries.

    All the yankee players likely want is to get home and get ready for the second season.

  1215. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    As I see Hughes replacing Ayala in the bp, I’m not worried about his crappy performance. Hughes was good, AJ was good. Wade & Boone are worrisome. But maybe it’s a lack of adrenaline. I know SO can’t pitch a meaningless inning.

    I think the best thing is to have a lot of pitchers because you never know what could happen. Colon in the pen over Noesi & we’re golden.

  1216. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    any updates on Montero? That is all I care about at this point.

  1217. Triple Short of a Cycle September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    I don’t understand why anyone would be upset if the Yanks lost this game.

  1218. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Betsy,

    Martin can be the primary next year….and after that either him again or Romine can split time with Montero.

    I’m trying to decide who will score a run first….the Braves or the Rays…..or if either ever will.

  1219. luis September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Hi guys,

    What happened to Jesus???

  1220. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Joe West must be loving this.

  1221. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    I don’t agree that this is a ST game………and I seriously doubt Ayala and Wade went out there saying “who cares”. Awful.

  1222. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Where did Red Robin go?

  1223. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Wade has been great this year. I still trust him in certain situations in the playoffs. He’s gotten out of some tough jams this year. One close-eyed swing by a AAAA player isn’t going to change that.

  1224. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    “The Yankees have one of the best bullpens in baseball. Just because they don’t have a bunch of proven arms and blew two meaningless games does not change that.”

    That’s the perspective that people need. But they get lost in the minutiae of a meaningless game and build it up in their minds to have some tragic carryover to the postseason, when of course it has none at all.

  1225. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    Give it up so that we can go home and prep for the playoffs.

  1226. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    Tyler, I don’t trust him at all – he’s never done it. I don’t trust anyone except Mo and Robertson……everyone else is a giant ?.

  1227. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    The Rays offense is really bad. And Longoria won’t be up for a while now…

    If the Yankees hadn’t blown the game, they wouldn’t be in extra innings.

  1235. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    John Sterling: “i don’t know if you know this Tino, but you don’t get paid extra for extra innings. Hahaha”

  1239. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    JM, I heard Saturday as well, but no one has confirmed. I’d love a 7PM.

  1241. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    Hola Luis

    Montero was pulled after being hit by a tipped pitch

  1242. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    Then Blake, you’re going to run Robertson and Mo out there for how many innings? Soriano is awful……….someone has to pitch the 7th inning. Also, if those lower leverage innings are for Wade and Ayala, why the need for Hughes? He can’t possibly be a long man -

  1243. Pepitone September 28th, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    So, how long is Girardi going to leave Dopey in the game?

    He’s already used Sleepy, Sneezy, Doc, and Grumpy.

  1244. Tarheel In NYC September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    I’m not rooting for the Rays, but I am rooting for this game to end ASAP. Yankees don’t need to play extra innings all night long tonight.

  1245. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Sori has been very good actually.

  1246. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

  1247. pat September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

  1248. scuzzles September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Proctor is dealing. I no longer feel bad.

  1249. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Blake, ok……that was my thought too. Well Martin next year was a given……and hopefully Romine can hit enough to allow us to carry him in a year or so.

  1250. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Soriano has pitched very well lately aside from last night (in a meaningless game)…..and Hughes was the best set up man in baseball 2 years ago as a 4th option. That’s as good or better than anyone else in the playoffs.

  1251. RadioKev September 28th, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Will Nick Swisher be the next pitcher?

    Will the Rays be able to score off of him?

  1252. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    This is terrible. This game needs to end before someone gets hurt. Please Joe don’t use any of our good pitchers.

  1253. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    Now Proctor is Cy Young…I say pitch him till the games ends, even if that’s 5 more innings..

  1254. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    “I don’t agree that this is a ST game………and I seriously doubt Ayala and Wade went out there saying “who cares”. Awful.”

    And here’s the problem as I see it. For every time a Yankee player failed where people here b*tched up a storm about the player, people needed to realize that the player did not ever go out there saying “who cares”. And it isn’t awful, it’s baseball, it happens, and right now it’s happening at the most meaningless moment, in terms of the yankees, in the entire season.

  1255. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    Proctor picks this game, of all games, to pitch like a major leaguer.

  1256. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Thanks yankeefem….An earlier start Sat. would be nice but I’ll bet we’re getting 8:37 again. Just hope there’s no rain.

  1257. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    “Now Proctor is Cy Young”

    Didn’t I tell ya? Though typically the second full inning of work has been his achilles heel more often than not.

  1258. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Swisher already played.

  1259. luis September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Hola jmv,

    Any news if it’s serious or just a bruise?

  1260. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    It’s just a tease. Proctor would still need to get at least three more outs.

    Hard to even imagine such a thing.

  1261. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Swisher won’t pitch. He has a 0.00 ERA

  1262. Villa Nova-Ya September 28th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    I am not overly concerned going forward (except about Logan a little bit), but I simply wanted to go out on a positive note. That is all.

  1263. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:24 pm

  1266. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    JM, yes I am thinking 8:30 for both unfortunately; weather looked clear but very cold for Saturday, last I checked.

  1267. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Blake, I just don’t trust Soriano. I won’t get into Hughes’ performance, but there’s no room for him as a 1 inning guy and Wade and Ayala. Someone has to be dropped…….. frankly, I hope none of them are used. You really want your starter to get it to Robertson/Mo.

  1268. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Ayala, Wade, Hughes,Burnett, Logan, Soriano, Robertson, Rivera+ Sabathia, Nova, Garcia.

    Are these the 11 or does Colon get in, now at the expense of Ayala? Hughes?

  1269. Niblick September 28th, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    The Yanks have already ruined Proctor’s arm once – they might as well do it again today.

  1270. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    YT,

    Colon in… Ayala out… 11 pitchers it is… IMO

  1271. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    That was a huge game yesterday – granted, not for the Yankees, but for the Rays, and Soriano blew it.

  1272. The Other Phil September 28th, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    Niblick: Joe Torre says hi.

  1273. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    Proctor only threw 27 pitches he is good for another 2 innings. Girardi better not even think about bringing in one of the A relievers. Why do I have a feeling that the Yanks are going to win this game?! I hope not.

  1274. Pepitone September 28th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    This is looming as the Yankees fifth loss in a row.

    Sure its a meaningless game, but no one wants to go into the postseason on the down, and the Yankees are on a down.

    Maybe they can switch it on for Detroit, or maybe they flip the switch and the circuit is broken.

    I do not like going into the postseason on a losing streak.

  1275. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    This is the scene of the crime for Swish pitching.

  1276. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    “You said there wasn’t a wrong and right to being a fan. Practice what you preach.”

    Uh, no. I said that there wasn’t a right or wrong to wanting the Yankee to win or the Rays to win. Get it straight.

    This is a different thing. There is no need for someone to be upset about a pitcher giving up runs in a meaningless game when the pitcher has otherwise had no problems. I don’t see that having anything to do with fandom. It has to do with perspective. I thought you were a huge proponent of reasonableness. Guess not.

  1277. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    YT, where is your long man?

  1278. Yankees_Fan September 28th, 2011 at 11:27 pm

    Its amazing what this run has shown. I hate Boston with a passion, but respect the game enough to simply watch and see what happens with everybody else. That some here can easily root for the Yankees to get swept by the now dangerous Rays shows some here hate the Red Sox more than they love the Yankees.

    I’d want my Yanks in their best shape possible for the start of the postseason, yet some seem to love the fact that we may go on a 4 game losing streak.

  1279. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    “This is looming as the Yankees fifth loss in a row.”

  1280. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    I don’t really think the Rays are that dangerous.

  1281. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    The Yankees did not play well going into last post-season and they played great against the Twins……….of course they reverted to form against the Rangers. It is a brand new season, but I do hate playing like crap going into the post-season

  1282. The Other Phil September 28th, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    PHI scores.

  1283. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    “This is looming as the Yankees fifth loss in a row.”

    I think it’s the fourth if it happens. Phils lost 8 in a row after clinching and I don’t see anybody thinking they’re folding. Ours came right at the end, but it isn’t that the Yankees got slaughtered. Tamps’s playing for their lives. We’re playing to stay in shape for the postseason. Two very different levels of play and two very different mindsets.

    These games have done nothing to cause me to feel any different about the Yankees going into the postseason. Different ways of looking at it I guess.

  1284. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Yeah, I figured it would be cold. Almost froze to death during 2009 ALCS. LOL.

    No news yet on Montero I guess.

  1295. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    The Rays are all geared up and sitting fastball off Proctor and are way out in front on just about anything off speed.

  1296. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    “That some here can easily root for the Yankees to get swept by the now dangerous Rays shows some here hate the Red Sox more than they love the Yankees.”

    Not at all. It shows that we’re not worried about the Yankees and see the games as meaningless and at the same time we want the Sux to loose.

    “I’d want my Yanks in their best shape possible for the start of the postseason, yet some seem to love the fact that we may go on a 4 game losing streak.”

    Again, I don’t think this is a matter of loving or hating it. Some of us don’t think that losing three games (meaningless to us) at the end of the season is reason to worry. And the Yankees could have won the second game of the double header Sunday, we believe, but it wasn’t managed as a must-win – which it was not. You look at the players who played in the second game, you don’t feel that the Yankees who will be going into the postseason were at all compromised.

    I understand you may feel the way you do, and I can respect it. But if some of us see it differently it doesn’t mean we love the Yankees less. It’s just not true.

  1297. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    YT, no way Phil can be a long man…….he’s not close to being stretched out. Maybe he can go 2 innings, but that’s about it.

  1302. ralphfl September 28th, 2011 at 11:38 pm

  1307. JM September 28th, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    Ledger_Yankees RT @JackCurryYES: Since Andruw Jones’s HR in the 5th, the Yankees don’t have a hit in 6 2/3 innings vs Rays bullpen.

    I notice you don’t tend to take it from anybody but seem to like to impose it on others. Maybe someone else will want to answer to you. Give it a try.

  1310. Pepitone September 28th, 2011 at 11:40 pm

    I think it’s the fourth if it happens. Phils lost 8 in a row after clinching and I don’t see anybody thinking they’re folding.
    ——————————–
    I don’t care about the Phillies, Trish (by the way, long time no see. Nice to see you back), I care about the Yankees.

    Baseball is about mental toughness, and focus, probably more so than any other sport. So, it does matter whether or not the team is getting lazy and used to playing at half speed.

    Doesn’t matter now, but it may come Saturday.

  1325. Yankees_Fan September 28th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    I don’t know about some of you, but Im not enjoying one bit all this “Go Rays” against the Yankees. Really sucks.

  1326. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    What a brutal collapse for the Braves (formerly of Boston).

  1327. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    Let’s end this now. Proctor is definitely tired so I feel bad but just throw one right over the plate.

  1328. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    Pep – nice to see you too!

    I’m thinking they’ve been there enough that they know what they’re doing. Yankees know how to flip the switch and it isn’t like they’re going to need a huge jolt of energy because they’ve been playing great ball. Now they’re just getting work in to stay sharp. Heck they got 7 runs today and we didn’t have our starter in the game.

    I think it will be fine. I totally believe that Pep.

    :0

  1329. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    lavarnway double play – they had bases loaded 1 out and couldn’t score…3-2 going to the bottom of the 9th…

  1330. kd September 28th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    o’s just turned a double play to get out of a bases loaded jam

  1331. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    The Rays offense is anemic.

  1332. LockDown September 28th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    Why didn’t Proctor pitch this way on Sunday :?

  1333. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    AMAZING job in Baltimore! Wow. They had the bases loaded and got nothing out of it.

    How about justice in the name of Papelbum blowing a save?

    We’ll see what the baseball gods have in store.

  1334. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    Mike Harkey is getting loose.

  1335. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    Looks like Proctor thinks he is auditioning for the game 3 start.

  1336. Carlo September 28th, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    This game SUCKS. Please end it.

    Agree I just stopped posting. It’s really just B’Sh^t. Somehow the logic of three meaningless games allows some to think they can have it both ways.

  1338. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    Wonder if St. Jetersberg is finished and fully furnished, to keep the team tonight? :)

  1339. jrazz12 September 28th, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    PUT THE BALL ON A GD TEE AND LETS GO HOME. this is getting stupid

  1340. devcon13 September 28th, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    could be worse…..u could be a Braves fan

    Yuckkkkk

  1341. pkyankfan69 September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    If Papelbone blows it in the 9th and the Sux miss the playoffs tonight this will go down as one of the best nights of baseball of all time.

  1342. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    in a season where we have like 50 million rainouts, 20 double headers and 10 extra inning games…we have to play another one tonight??!? come on rays, you pathetic bunch of scrubs…

  1343. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    I was really hoping it would be over tonight (and that the Sux would be out of it) because I was really looking forward to having a day away from baseball before the postseason began.

    :(

    Maybe it will still happen.

  1344. CB September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    The Rays offense is very poor. This game is not a done deal. Rays can definitely lose it.

  1345. jmv September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    Proctor, you are grounded. Your punishment is to pitch until your arm falls off or you give up a run

  1346. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    I would let Proctor start the next inning and then Noesi can give them 50 pitches.

  1347. yankeefeminista September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    Go O’s, walk off finish!

  1348. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    As per Curry, the Yankees haven’t had a hit since Jones’ HR – that’s hardly a good way to go into the post-season.

  1349. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    The RS got 11 hits yet only 3 runs? That isn’t very good.

    Of course Proctor is going to pitch like Cy Young tonight.

  1350. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    I’m thinking both teams win tonight so Boston fans have their hopes up, and the eam travels to TB to lose in extra innings.

    I think it will be fine. I totally believe that Pep
    ====================
    Well, I hope you’re right.

    And, I have to admit, you are more right than wrong when it comes to the Yanks.

  1352. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    jones had a great ab against papelbon last night…

  1353. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    Crap Eva….

  1354. devcon13 September 28th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    Texas has got to be smiling as this unfolds tonight

  1355. jacksquat September 28th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a box score like the one for this game.

  1356. Tyler September 28th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    And I have to deal with Cardinals fans for another week. dangit.

  1357. scuzzles September 28th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    Papelbums smirk is getting worse.

  1358. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    betsy – clean slate in october…none of this matters…

  1359. Bret The Hitman September 28th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    Golson you jerk.

  1360. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    I would take personal satisfaction if Adam Jones does something here since he is one of my favorite fantasy team players.

    yeah, that would be awesome

  1362. BoJo September 28th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Golson has to try to steal home now..they won’t be expecting that from first base!

  1363. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Betsy is brainless.

  1364. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Bum Golson actually getting on base

  1365. luis September 28th, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    I wouldn’t put Noesi in this game, any other rookie left to pitch??

  1366. devcon13 September 28th, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    Does Paplebum realize what a jack a** he looks like when hes looks in to get the sign fro the catcher. He looks like a puckered a** hole….

  1367. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    Guess not.

  1368. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    I want to see Maddon pitch Shields on 1 day rest. That would be something.

    Golson better not try to steal 2nd base.

  1369. nyyfana September 28th, 2011 at 11:53 pm

    We really are a bunch of jerks

  1370. devcon13 September 28th, 2011 at 11:53 pm

    Does Paplebum realize what a jack a** he looks like when hes looks in to get the sign fro the catcher. He looks like a puckered a** hole….

  1374. Yankee Trader September 28th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    Yankees score a run. Who pitches the bottom of the inning?

  1375. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    Damn!!!! Posada can’t hit lefties..good. Then bring in Shields to get the next 2 guys out.

  1376. JobaTipsHisCap September 28th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    lol. Yanks are trying hard to help sux

  1377. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    Hey! It’s the AL East clincher Jorgie!! Nice play Longo. Great decision

  1380. djsunyc September 28th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    i think all redsox fans are inbred…at least going by the shots in the crowd…

  1381. blake September 28th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    terrible baserunning….I never like seeing that

  1382. Captain Clutch September 28th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    Good thing Golson runs the bases like Posada lol

  1383. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    Wow. 2 out double for Davis. This is all going to go right down to the wire, in high dramatic fashion

  1384. JobaTipsHisCap September 28th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    ok, birds need a big swing now

  1385. luis September 28th, 2011 at 11:56 pm

  1473. JCPD September 29th, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Wait, I thought Sutcliffe said you can tell by the look in Papelbon’s eyes that he was not letting that one get away!!!

  1474. Yankee Trader September 29th, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Was that crawford who didn’t make the sliding catch?

    P.S.- how horrible is Carl Crawford???? that was the SAME play he botched against Russell Martin’s liner the other day. what a horrible bust he has been this year. and it was supposedly his ARM that made him a questionable defender at times. LOL, wow, just wow

  1484. Nick in SF September 29th, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Fastball. He throws hard.

    Not real difficult to guess when it comes to Papelbon.

    HOLY CRAP! No play in tomorrow.

    The collapse of the “greatest team ever” is complete.

    Insanity. I can’t think of anytime when I almost felt some joy at the Yankees losing a game. Other than tonight.

    Have to say, Girardi managed this perfectly. Arod not pinch hitting for Romine with the go ahead run in scoring position vs the closer? Proctor giving up the bomb in extra innings? The Red Sox cannot complain.

    2 down in the bottom of the 9th, 2 out, O’s win it.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
