    Hey it’s long lost Pete Abe on NESN. Suprisingly he isn’t wearing his Gonzalez jersey this time.

  3. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Rain delays in B-More tonight ! (?) .

  4. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    That’s one player for each dollar you owe me, Bret!

  5. BJK September 28th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    AJ (or whoever the 4th starter is) should be left off the roster for the ALDS.

  6. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Alex Rodriguez has been scratched

    —–

    WHAT A SURPRISE .

    The elf saying in interviews that “It’s fun” is the biggest lie of this year’s baseball season.

    I can’t bring myself to believe that having the biggest collapse ever in Baseball history, “Is fun.”

  8. UnKnown September 28th, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    And the SF Giants have just wrapped up their season. As has been known for awhile now there will be a new Champion crowned this year at the end of the PostSeason.

  9. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    The elf has not comported himself in the least this week to give any indication of fun. In his postgame interviews he has been both tense and terse.

  10. tyanksfan36 September 28th, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Boo Rays!! Go Yankees!!! Wish I was there to see all these rookies. Hopefully our bats show up and we can win so we don’t go into the playoffs with a 4 game losing streak.

  11. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    Grrrr, my sportsbook just settled my AJ over 11.5 wins wager as a loser. Do they not know that he can come in and vulture a win tonight????

  12. DocTodd September 28th, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    I hear Santa Claus has booked a flight for the Elf and expects him at the North Pole tomorrow, after his season ends tonight…

  13. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Unbelievable…………it’s just not his year. I said when he had the surgery that it was no guarantee that he was going to regain his power – it’s still surgery, even if it was relatively minor.

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Tyanks if there is any time in a baseball season where a 4-game losing streak is no big whoop, this is it. And remember that the game that started it was eminently winnable but Girardi didn’t want to play regulars in both games of the DH.

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    “I hear Santa Claus has booked a flight for the Elf and expects him at the North Pole tomorrow, after his season ends tonight…”

  16. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    Nick, I was thinking that tonight was for all of the candy, but you won already!

  17. BD (Boston Dave) September 28th, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    really hoping Alex can contribute in the playoffs

    Cano has taken over but that lineup is just plain scary when Alex is hitting

  18. mick September 28th, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    no wade or ayala weakens the pen Bret.

  19. Joe from Long Island September 28th, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    So, the Red Sox and their fans are praying the Yankees win tonight, because that’s the only way they can make it to tomorrow. What a spot to be in, for the greatest team in history.

    So, Theo goes to Chicago, to run the Cubs. Does he bring Tito with him?

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Tyanks, however I can certainly see why you’d want the Yanks to win tonight!

    ;)

  21. mick September 28th, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    who needs romine?
    give me a speedy 5th OF

  22. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    BD, I’m really beginning to doubt it with Alex……..and it’s a shame because he looked like a monster at the beginning of the year. If it’s not one thing this year, it’s another.

  23. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Alex hasn’t looked right for awhile. I don’t expect anything from him in the postseason.

    Same goes for Tex. I hope I am dead wrong……

  24. Nick in SF September 28th, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    That’s right, Trisha, all the chocolate will be mine! Exciting. When we made our bet I thought it would be tough to thread the needle between my $ bet on the Socks getting under 95.5 wins and winning our over 89.5 wins chocolate bet.

    If you don’t mind, I’d like to wait a few weeks to settle up. I don’t want all those Ritter Sports flying across the country in hot weather.

  25. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    This year has not been a good one for Alex. I’m disappointed about him being scratched as he could use the at bats to help get his timing back.

    The knee operation he had can flare up from time to time, so I can understand him being out, but it hurts him to lose those batting times against “real” pitching.

  26. mick September 28th, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I don’t expect much from Alex either.
    Someone said it’s rust but he looks out of shape.

  27. mick September 28th, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    All the more reason to carry Chavez, who’s a no brainer, but someone mentioned leaving him off.
    Amazing baseball minds here at Lohud.

  28. Yogi Mantle September 28th, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    I think it would have been different had he not had that thumb injury. I think that was more significant than was reported, given the time off he needed and still having to have that tape on the bat to keep the pressure off his thumb.

  29. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    I agree Yogi, I suspect that there must be a tear of something a bit more serious than a strain/sprain with the thumb.

  30. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    My crystal ball also sees either Big Poopi or Gonzalez (or both) will have a big game.

  31. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    *or something

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Thinking the same thing mick. Joe has some big decisions.

  33. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    I knew the thumb injury would be a problem…….but I didn’t think it would be this big a problem. Other players are going to have to pick up the slack. Swisher has to do a lot better this time around and Tex has to hit like the player we paid for. I expect big things from Granderson and Cano – and Jeter. Alex may have a moment or two, but physically he’s beat up.

  34. mick September 28th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Of course, the quiet ones will pronounce the doubters as idiots and non-believers, IF Alex comes up big.

  35. tyanksfan36 September 28th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Trisha, they’ve been playing the regulars who just aren’t hitting. I’m sure the Yankees will win tonight. They always win when my dad goes to the games and lose when I go, like Monday. As you know and most people on here, I dislike the Rays more than the Sox.

  36. BD (Boston Dave) September 28th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Betsy,

    true – I’m still holding out hope that he can be 100% for next year but anything this year appears to be a bonus, unfortunately.

  37. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    My biggest fear is that they peaked a week ago and in a 5 game series you don’t have much time to turn it on from off.

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    “If you don’t mind, I’d like to wait a few weeks to settle up. I don’t want all those Ritter Sports flying across the country in hot weather.”

    Absolutely. How is this for a potential sweet (no pun intended) moment? I just may be paying for those bars with money that Brian Sux fan will have to pony up if Jeter hits 300.

    Tonight is going to tell many tales!!!

  39. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    BD, it really sucks because Alex is one of the few players who can carry his team on his back………..I hope he’ll be ok next year, but who the heck knows?

  40. Ys Guy September 28th, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    alex who? we win with who we got!

  41. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    mick, i have the same fear. Not only is it hard to turn it on in a 5 game series, but it’s even more so when you gotta (possibly) face Verlander 2x.

    Ok, I’m gonna get positive now. Just wanted to express my concerns.

  42. Betsy September 28th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    BryanHoch Cashman on what Yankees can expect from A-Rod in playoffs: “”I don’t know. Really, I don’t know… I don’t think he’s quite there yet.”

  43. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    With 2 wildcards in 2013 this whole thing would be moot.

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    tyanks, that why I said I understood why you would want the win tonight.

    The regulars may not be hitting but I don’t think that’s cause for worry. They’ve been here before and know how to prepare for the postseason. This is staying in practice and nothing more. Swinging the bats, getting work in the field. It’s batting practice. Which it is meant to be.

    If the Yanks were playing a team that wasn’t trying to win the wild card, they may have won the last four games.

    No biggie.

  45. mick September 28th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    rr212

    doesn’t matter what we think, we have no say in the matter.
    it will get settled soon enough on the field.

  46. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Lightnings sighted in B-More .

  47. BD (Boston Dave) September 28th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    re: BryanHoch

    UGH

  48. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Oooops.

    Just lightnings in a bottle caught by Sucks in the form of Lavernsway.

    :(

  49. Red Robin September 28th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    new post

  50. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 28th, 2011 at 7:06 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!!!

  51. rr212 September 28th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    mick,

    yes sir, you are correct.

    I am going to be in attendance on Saturday and I gotta say, I’m very excited but also a little nervous too.
