Yankees let the last one get away

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 29, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

After carrying a seven-run lead into the eighth inning, the Yankees couldn’t finish the regular season with a win. The Rays walked off with an 8-7 win at Tropicana Field, eliminating the Red Sox from the postseason just minutes after the Red Sox blew a ninth-inning lead in Baltimore. The Yankees were up 7-0 — Mark Teixeira had homered twice, including a grand slam — but Luis Ayala and Boone Logan allowed six runs in the eighth, Cory Wade gave up a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth and the Rays won it on XXX.

    Nice job by the Yankees getting swept……….and anyone rooting for the Rays might regret it later on IF we advance to face them.

    I’m glad the Sox are out, but sheesh the Yankees totally blew this game.

    I just can’t celebrate…oh well. I do love the idea of Sox fans reeling from this punch in the gut

  6. BoJo September 29th, 2011 at 12:11 am

    Wrong headline…when reposting this, may I suggest:

    “Hahahaha F*ck You Boston!”

    well I guess they don’t need Bruce Chen after all.

    Epic collapse….on par with the 07 Mets and the 78 Sox……and the 2011 Braves unfortunately :(

  9. LockDown September 29th, 2011 at 12:12 am

    RIP Boston… :D :D :D :D

    Not it’s time for the Yankees to get ready for Detroit. Glad D-Rob wasn’t used.

    The Rays had this game & they knew it. It was just a matter of when. We only had proctor & mostly our AAA lineup (unable to score). Finally over…..

  10. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Right now Tampa is thinking Proctor took one away…and gave us one.

  11. nyyfana September 29th, 2011 at 12:12 am

    THEYVE DONE IT!!!
    I love you SHOWALTER!!!!
    The Rays have shocked the WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    yessss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. jmv September 29th, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Sorry, I’m coming late to the season…Did the Sux won the division yet?

  13. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Too bad I don’t have NESN.

    I would love to see that post game.

  14. blake September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    I hope they face the Rays in the ALCS…..because they will mean that they beat Detroit….and because the Yankees are significantly better than Tampa is.

  15. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    One of the most amazing nights of baseball i’ve ever experienced and I didn’t even catch the game until the 8th inning.

    Unbelievable.

    And the cherry on top was I was fortunate enough to be graced with a group of Red Sox fans at the bar. Just amazing.

  16. CB September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Pepi,

    How are you? Hope things are well.

    This is me.

    I haven’t been around very much. I stop in once and a while just to chat with old friends like yourself.

    Tonight was a night where the game’s magic crystallizes in such a pure way.

    Great night to be a baseball fan.

  17. Yankee Trader September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Their high priced closer blows the game and their 142M dollar left fielder can’t make the catch for the last out.

    Has anybody else witnessed a more exciting finish to a baseball season within just a few minutes??

  18. Tar September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Screw the Rays, and screw the Sox even more. :D

    Just added another reason for them to hate us. They have plenty enough don’t you think.

  19. Yogi Mantle September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    I can’t stand the Rays. The pretenders. At least this seals off a great season for the greatest team ever assembled… how long till the RS look to trade Crawford? He blew the game along with Pimplebutt.

    The Rays should never have been to this point. It took an epic collapse by the RS and even then they just lucked out getting in. I am hoping the Rays get swept in the first round, as they deserve.

  20. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    I don’t think you could have scripted tonight better.

    Hollywood quality.

  21. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Hahaha…

    I think I pee’d myself from laughing.

    I had the Boston game on, got to watch Papelboner do his thing.

    Got to watch Crawford show his elite defensive talent.

    Changed the channel back to the Yankees and got to see Longoria hit a HR like a minute later.

    Life is good. :)

  22. LockDown September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    Betsy, when we needed to win & get the division the yankees took the first 3 games. They had no trouble beating them. If the game was important they would have put in So-Ro-Mo… game over. Bottom line is they scored on Price.

  23. blake September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    Best team ever assembled, no weaknesses, 5 aces, best lineup since the 27 Yankees……

  24. hardwired7 September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    Braves and Red Sox should play a best 2-out-of-3 to see just who the biggest chokers are.

    My $$$ is on the greatest team (n)ever.

  25. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    In the span of about 20 minutes, we saw the two worst September collapses in baseball history.

  26. deleonj September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    BOSTON 2011 = BEST TEAM EVER!

  27. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    It would have been better had the Yankees won….. more like a horror show.

  28. Chris W September 29th, 2011 at 12:15 am

    The Red Sox are a more dangerous team than the Rays.

    They score more runs. They have two pitchers capable of shutting you down.

    I’m not scared of the Rays. Not in the slightest.

    Sure, the Yankees could lose to them. But if they play badly enough to lose, then I’m prepared to accept that they would have lost to the Red Sox, and that would have hurt a whole lot more.

    End of story.

  29. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:15 am

    JackCurryYES
    Girardi said Garcia will start Gm 3 vs Tigers. Burnett will be in pen.

  30. blake September 29th, 2011 at 12:15 am

    Now most importantly……I hope Montero’s hand is ok. Still haven’t heard.

    Gnight all…..crazy night…..Sox can start making their tee times in the morning :)

    So are the jigs being broken out right about now?

    Kilts?

    I wonder who Gonzo is going to blame now.

    Post game he’ll probably be making veiled suggestions about how next season no one is going to want to play the sox because they are going to be dangerous

  36. Nilsson September 29th, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Gritty outing by Proctor. He took one for the team and it looked like he was limping a bit in the final inning.

    This epic collapse won’t go over too well with Sully, Smitty, and others at McGreevy’s.

    Theo has sum xplainin to do!!

  37. Tar September 29th, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Good night all. Unbelievable!!!

  38. Yankee Trader September 29th, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Wonder who the Rangers and Ranger fans were rooting for?

  39. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Lockdown, I just can’t wish for my team to lose……sorry, I can’t do it. They quit hitting and guys in the pen did not exactly do their jobs…….

  40. Chris W September 29th, 2011 at 12:17 am

    All the credit in the world to Proctor. He pitched his heart out. He deserves a huge applause for gutting it out.

  41. Tyler September 29th, 2011 at 12:17 am

    Alright folks. We got our wish. The Sox are dead. Now lets go dominate this postseason! LETS GO YANKEES!!

  42. ctyankeefan. September 29th, 2011 at 12:17 am

    Just reading over a couple of pages of a sox blog, and I cant believe how many sox fans are condemning Agonz. Thought he was their MVP!!!??

  45. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:17 am

    So AJ is in the pen? Then who pitches game 4? I guess CC no matter what………AJ as the long man- I guess that works.

    Even though I really didn’t get what I wanted, baseball is still the greatest game in the world. It’s just perfect – Selig can’t mess it up; no one can mess it up.

  46. Nick in SF September 29th, 2011 at 12:18 am

    The ink on Gonzo’s spray cart is blurring under Gammons’ tears.

  47. PittsburghYankeeFan September 29th, 2011 at 12:18 am

    This is a night you will tell your grandchildren about. Absolutely incredible.

    The Yankees would have taken 2/3 if they had to. They beat up the Rays ace in a must win game for the Rays. I’m not sure I’d say “let this get away.”

    Can’t fault Girardi–they didn’t lay down, and he played his players exactly like he said he would.

    What a night. The baseball gods strike again. The last time we saw them like this was the 2004 ALCS. What a night.

  49. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:19 am

    It’s pretty funny how Crawford could of saved the game with a great sliding catch and couldn’t. If it was last year on the Rays he probably makes an amazing catch to keep the game tied. Not this year with the Sox.

  50. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:19 am

    Chris, the end of your story, not mine. I’m not scared of any team, but the Rays have by far the best pitching and I’ve seen how inconsistent the Yankees offense has been in prior post-seasons.

    Crawford dropped a ball? Matt Holliday thanks him.

    =========

    And the winner of the losers is the Red Sox. How sweet is that?

    The various reporters and ESPN announcers were certain that Papelbon would never allow the game to get away from them. Down to the last out and strike. BOOM.

    They were talking about how they just guaranteed that there would be a tomorrow. Talk about having the heart ripped out and stomped on.

  52. yankeefeminista September 29th, 2011 at 12:20 am

    Girardi on postgame on YES! Yes!!!!

  53. PittsburghYankeeFan September 29th, 2011 at 12:20 am

    Betsy–chill out. Had they needed to win this, they would have. 7-0 against Price in the eighth, with all of their best relievers sitting.

    Same thing last night.

    I think this is going to hurt the Sox for a long time. Have the Mets recovered yet?

  54. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:20 am

    I don’t think the rays get past the rangers

  56. JsDad September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Normally, I’d be very upset about losing a game like this …

    Even tonight, seeing Golson get caught off third and blowing a scoring opportunity with 1st and 3rd and nobody out, makes me mad …

    But seeing the Red Sox dead & gone, can’t be better!

    Now let’s win 11 more games!

  57. Tarheel In NYC September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Oh Luis, I’m mostly happy! Happy that the Sox are out! But conflicted with feeling both glad and disappointed that the Yankees lost ;)

    But most importantly, I’m thrilled that we’re in to the post season! :D

  58. Yogi Mantle September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Imagine Crawford playing in Boston for another 6 years. He is the more modern Buckner.

  59. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    @BryanHoch: Montero had x-rays on right hand …negative

  60. CB September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Before this season started – I would have never thought Carl Crawford would not have made that catch in that spot.

    If he can’t make those kinds of plays anymore his value as a player will have plummeted. So much of his value was tied to his glove and he just hasn’t been that good defensively this season. Not like he used to be.

  61. antisocial scrooge September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    The only thing missing was Proctor pointing to the logo on his hat and grinning like a jackass on the way off the mound.

  62. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    I said OH MY GOD about in about twenty posts and then noticed the party had moved.

    Can you believe that it came down to 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th in both games, 2 strikes in ours, and the Rays tied it.

    2 down in the O’s game and Andino, the greatest little player in the world, won it.

    OH MY GOD!!!!!

    Yankfem, do you remember how people scoffed at us when we predicted the Sux would finish third???? Bojo did too!

    OH MY GOD!!!!

    Clutch – I am DVRing the Sux postgame. If you want me to make you a copy I will do it. In fact, any of the “eam Rays” D posters who want a copy I will make one for you. Bojo, Clutch, Chase, LGY, J AL, Randy, Yanksfan69, I’m sure I’m forgetting some who were with us all the way in wanting the Sux collapse. Trader, I believe, Luis for sure. BD.

    Oh my God I love you all!

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

    Anyone want to trash the Showalters now????? We’re not talking about forever, we’re talking about the month of September. They were PHENOMENAL!!!!!

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

    I feel so amazingly happy I feel like I’m in a dream. This is like a dream. And we all know – certainly “team Rays” know that the Yankees are going to kick ass and take numbers in the postseason.

    Thank you baseball gods for answering my prayer.

    One more thought – ORTIZIAN KARMA. Take that you fat lying roider.

  63. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Montero’s x-ray negative. He is just sore.

    “anyone rooting for the Rays might regret it later on IF we advance to face them.”

    ————

    If the Yanks face the Rays in the ALCS, I will be very happy that the Yanks beat Detroit and are one stop away from the World Series.

    Like I said before, what “easy” team would the Yankees face if they make it that far?

  70. umbrelladoc September 29th, 2011 at 12:23 am

    Betsy – they didn’t “quit hitting” they quit playing major league hitters – the final lineup was Pena, Golson, Chavez, Posada, Dickerson, Gardner, Romine, Nunez and Laird.

  71. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 12:23 am

    And thank you God that I have a day away from watching baseball before the season begins.

    And nobody will be able to say that Girardi tanked the game. Because he didn’t. He smartly didn’t blow out all of his pitching in a game that meant bupkus (sp?).

  72. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 12:23 am

    I hope the Yanks have a good scouting report on Cabrera. He has been hitting like crazy recently. You definitely have to pitch around him in a big spot and make VMart beat you.

  73. Tarheel In NYC September 29th, 2011 at 12:23 am

    Freddy is the 3rd starter…and AJ is in the bullpen.

    Ready? Discuss!

  74. CB September 29th, 2011 at 12:24 am

    Gonzo’s spray chart. Good times. Over intellectualization of abstractions.

    The known unknowns vs. the unknown unknowns, etc.

    What sweet lullaby is gammons strumming on his guitar?

    Whatever the tune – I’m thinking he’s brought out the 12 string.

    Reverberations.

  89. Tarheel In NYC September 29th, 2011 at 12:26 am

    Yankeefem, that’s what I want to know. I have tix for Saturday’s game, but I’m having to keep my entire calendar open until I know the time of the game.

    Judging by the weather forecast, I better wash my Yankees hoodie this week.

  90. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:26 am

    Tarheel, I guess that means that there will be no 4th starter – CC will go on 3 days rest in game 4 no matter what. AJ is the long-man. Hughes, if he makes it, will be a 1 inning guy – like Ayala or Wade. Really, though, the only time we will see any of them is if we’re losing.

    “I haven’t been around very much.” Me neither, I miss you Trish, Betsy, GB7, SJ44, Giovanni, Pat M., and all the other regulars I’ve talked baseball with for the past 3 years, but the current posters are mostly baseball betties.

    I hate the Red Sox as much as anyone, but I am very uncomfortable with all the hoo rahs for Tampa winning tonight.

    Looking forward to talking baseball with you during the Yanks playoff run; hopefully it will be a long one.

  92. Yankees_Fan September 29th, 2011 at 12:27 am

    If I were part of the Yankees team, I’d feel cheated by my fan base. All of you who cheered for the Rays should feel dirty and ashamed. The way baseball sometimes works, all these cheers can become jeers if the Rays keep the momentum and become the team to beat.

    THE GREATEST COLLAPSE IN BASEBALL HISTORY will send shockwaves throughout Red Sox Nation.

    Francona could be fired

    Theo is in the doghouse

    The fans have turned against AGON and he was supposed to be the savior

    Bad marriage with Crawford from the gate

    Hate, HATE for John Lackey and Dice K

    ESPN has to pipe down about the Sox FROM NOW ON

    Boston media will tear them to shreds

    Papelbust GONE in a contract year, Bard in as closer backed up by Jenks and Wheeler

    AGon is probably saying in his interview after the game don’t worry we will get it done next year, it’s not a big deal.

  106. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:29 am

    Hi Pep………the Tigers are a very good team and Verlander probably twice is no easy task. I wish I could be sure that CC was going to be great, but after his last month or so…….I don’t know.

  107. CB September 29th, 2011 at 12:29 am

    kd-

    6 more years. That’s a long time. And that’s now an untradable contract.

    The thing about long term deals on guys who are already 29 when they sign is that you are assuming that they’ll produce huge immediate value in years 1-3 on the deal. That’s they only way you can absorb the back end risk as the player ages.

  108. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 12:30 am

  111. Keith--FL September 29th, 2011 at 12:31 am

    This is an epic collapse by the Sox that is on par with 04 and should make any Sox fan never mention 04 again…….all I can say is this script was as perfect as can be tonight, too good to put into words and will be made even better when the Yankees win the World Series with Nova and Freddy Garcia being great for the so called terrible starting pitching after CC Yankees….the ending just goes along with this incredible story doesn’t it……it just has to!!!! Let’s Go Yankees!!!!

  117. Shame Spencer September 29th, 2011 at 12:32 am

    I’m still not happy we lost tonight but realistically we weren’t pitching the best guys because Uncle Joe burned a bunch of our pitchers early thinking we had the game locked up.. and he also made a lot of substitutions. I expect the guys to get rested and ready for Friday. The next 24+ hours are going to be awful..I can’t take the anticipation.

    I’d like the ESPN “experts” who picked the Sox to win the division/WS at the beginning of the season to choke on their predictions.

    you’re probably right cb. he really, really hurt his value. it’s going to be really tough for him in boston next year.

  129. CB September 29th, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Pepi,

    It didn’t matter to me one way or the other what happened.

    Honestly – I think these games are almost like pseudo-spring training. It’s not even that the team isn’t trying – you just can’t play with the same edge and you’re mostly trying to get prepped for the post season.

    I think it’s only an issue when a team clinches very early and really plays soft down the stretch.

    The yankees didn’t have that many games like that. Didn’t clinch everything soon enough.

    The playoffs are always a gamble – but the yanks go in as one of the two best teams.

    And on the whole – I do think the Sox have more talent than the Rays.

    The Rays offense has real limitations to it.

    It’ll be fun. Hopefully we’ll be able to talk about it here.

    I miss the old gang as well.

    Pat M.,

    How are you my friend?

    Doesn’t surprise me on Crawford. It was just such a very odd mix. From style of play to putting his skill set in a tiny LF for half the season.

    Good player. Not close to great. Just doesn’t have the swing.

    But he’s getting paid as great and that’s going to be a real millstone for him.

    I would be very concerned if I were Boston on his defense – really didn’t look like the same dominant force out there this season.

    Would have been better of with Sciosia.

    The 2010 Red Sox won 89 games and missed the playoffs.

    In the winter of 2010-2011 they committed to around 300M in contracts.

    And in 2011 the Sox won 90 games and missed the playoffs.

    At least they are consistent.

    It just goes to show – all of those comments out of boston about the yankees “buying” their way to the WS in 2009 were so off base.

    Had the Yankees won and the Sox ended up in the post-season, people would be grumbling about that. Now some will say that be careful what you wish for, but the truth is the Sox have risen from the dead in the postseason before so who would wish for them in the playoffs?

    Anyway, it was a beautiful night of baseball, 8 unanswered runs not withstanding.

    if the sox commit to another 300 in contracts, they might get scary good. they also might get hugely screwed.

    if they sign cj wilson 5/90, prince 8/160, and francisco rodriguez 3/45 they may really live to regret it

    Betsy,

    I understand. I was rooting for a Yankees win. But the baseball gods had other ideas after the Sox went ahead and kept the lead.

    It’s a good night. We should all be happy. The Yankees were disrespected all season. Starting in the winter. Continued in the spring. When we were 1-8 against the Sox.

    The only bad thing is that Theo will be gone. Someone might actually follow the Yankees model. That could be bad. Good news is that it takes at 3-5 years to do what Cashman has done.

    Build up and save all your chips using the almighty $$ and a good eye for the right players. Let’s hope it pays off while Boston cries in their Sam Adams.

    “adrian gonzalzes just said the red sox did not make the playoffs because of injuries to buchholz, matzuzaka, and youkillis.”

    randy,

    Last year Gonzalez’s Padres underwent an enormous collapse down the stretch as well.

    I bet that was due to injuries to buchholz, matsuzaka and youkilis as well.

    For the guy who that franchise is supposed to be building itself around – he really hasn’t acquitted himself professionally or in terms of leadership during this period of time with his statements and excuses.

  199. Bret The Hitman September 29th, 2011 at 12:52 am

    The BEST thing would be for the Sox to heavily leverage themselves in a handful of HUGE contracts so if one or two guys are slumping or injured, the whole team goes under because there is no balance and no even distribution of talent/money. The Yankees made that mistake already. I’m counting on the Sox to make it.

    PUJOLS – to break the all-time HR record. 10 years.

    CJ WILSON – AJ Burnett money.

    Baltimore 4, Boston 3: 1927 Yankees say hi and enjoy your offseason :)

    This was a crazy way to help the Sox into oblivion, but hey, we’ll take it ;) As to the Rays, agreed with Yogi Mantle – thanks for the assist, don’t get too comfortable . . . As LockDown said, the Yankees hit David Price hard.

    CB, Pat M., randy, Trisha, Betsy: good to have you here repping the old guard. Credit where credit is due: Trisha, you called it from day one about Boston. Consider this your vindication. And Betsy, in a crowded field, your Agon/fish tacos comment is my nominee for line of the night. LOLOL

    Now the Yankees await the arrival of the Tigers on Friday – gotta respect Justin Verlander’s overwhelming gangster for sure, but let’s see if the Yankees can find a way . . . Night all, enjoy the day off tomorrow, hit the reset button on Friday and let the games begin: 11 wins to #28, and LET’S GO YANKS!!!

    I’m not about to say the Sox are down for the count and I have no idea if Theo will be gone or not…..not that it matters as I have no interest in what they will be dong.

  213. mick September 29th, 2011 at 12:57 am

  214. Bronx Jeers September 29th, 2011 at 12:57 am

    Paps is a free agent. I don’t think the Sox will be willing to give him the deal he’ll be looking for. And blowing this game is definitely not the way you want to enter free agency.

    I’d say the Sox are looking at another “bridge year” :smile:

  215. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 12:57 am

    I mean, I’ll feel good because I’m off from work, I’m not going to temple and I’m going to catch up on some DVRing, lol……..but I have an obsession with the Yanks, not the Sox (and I still think the Rays are very dangerous)

  216. Travis September 29th, 2011 at 12:57 am

    I can’t believe that Boston didn’t make the playoffs, especially given that Dice-K was deemed the greatest No. 5 starter of all time just this past offseason. Chortle. Snort. Guffaw.

    I think it was painful because they were so close. And then it was “Yanked” away from them.

    They had to sit in the rain delay while their grip on an outright win slipped away.

    I somehow knew their relievers would cost them. They have been ground into the ground.

    The broadcast crew on the espn crew were bemoaning the abuse of Aceves. I completely concurred. Just because I don’t like the fact that he went to Boston doesn’t mean I want them to destroy him.

  219. Nick in SF September 29th, 2011 at 12:59 am

    Betsy, we wake up tomorrow in the exact same place we would have been had we won tonight: one day away from hosting the Tigers in the ALDS. I wanted the Yanks to win tonight too, but they didn’t play like they needed this game because they didn’t. It didn’t matter. So enjoying the Sox collapse in its fullness is AOK.

  220. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 12:59 am

    :D

    that’s the biggest smile I could find. Thank you so much for the mention – and the mention of vindication. It does feel good.

    And I did go out on a limb (as did the others who predicted it) and we never hedged our bet. The upside is that when you hit it right it is right out there and feels great. When you hit it wrong, I guess you just sit and wait for your words to be spat back at your ad nauseum!

  222. disco stu September 29th, 2011 at 12:59 am

    Betsy … c’mon … if the Yankees were all about winning this game, they would not have done bullpen by committee from the first pitch, pulled their starters around the 5th inning, and keep their 3 headed monster in the bullpen when the game became close.

    You think Robertson would have given up that 3 run jack to Longoria with 2 out in the 8th inning and do you honestly think that Mo would have given up a 2 out, 2 strike home run to a pinch hitter who was barely hitting over .100?

    Again, c’mon!!!

  223. hardwired7 September 29th, 2011 at 12:59 am

    I think Papelbon makes sense for Philadelphia.

    They’re about to realize how hard it is to win the WS without a true closer.

  225. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 1:01 am

    Nick, I’m concerned about how the team is set up for the post-season…………right now, the blown 7 run lead just doesn’t sit well with me. I don’t begrudge anyone for enjoying the Sox collapse ,but my focus is on the Yanks, not them.

    Just enjoy this. Why worry about the Yankees right now? Like Nick just said, our Yankees are in the exact same place win or loss.

    The Yankees are the best team in the AL and the Red Sox didn’t even make the playoffs. A beautiful season.

    The playoffs start Friday and whatever happened this past 3 games has absolutely no impact on that.

    Go Yankees!!

  233. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 1:03 am

    The game would have been managed completely different if it mattered. This was a ST game. Nothing else.

  234. Nick in SF September 29th, 2011 at 1:03 am

    The blown 7 run lead would not have happened had the Yanks needed to win this game.

    There would have been different Yankee players on the field.

    And the Yanks would be set up for the postseason the exact same way had they held on to win.

  235. m September 29th, 2011 at 1:03 am

    I have to say this about AGon. I don’t watch NL baseball much, so I only heard how great he was. When Boston acquired him, I was curious to see how he would do in the AL East.

    What I saw was a player who could be pitched to by lefties, and a player who seem to wilt in big situations. A player who postured with false bravado and couldn’t back up his words.

    A player who makes excuses for his failures. Who doesn’t take responsibility for his own failures.

    AGon…M.V.P.? No, more like P.U.S.S.Y

    “And we will get the blame for it which makes it even better…they will say we tanked with Proctor.”

    mick, EEI will be an interesting listen tomorrow because today they were defending the Yanks IF the Yanks chose to go without all of their regulars because they said the Yanks earned the right and the Sux would be doing the same thing – resting people and getting ready for the postseason and not chancing injuries or anything else in the game because they didn’t need to.
    Well the Yanks certainly seemed to be intent on winning. Heck posters here were upset because they felt Girardi was playing to win :) so I can’t see how they could make a great case for that. Wade has been very good for us. Ayala too. And nobody would have expected us to put one of our starters in, or Mo or DRob, to win a meaningless game!

  247. m September 29th, 2011 at 1:08 am

    We knew it would be tough to go from small market to Boston. Crawford and Gonzalez are seeing that now.

    Mick, that’s the brilliance of the 14inning game bs the red sox. Girardi then proceeds to tank the last game in exactly the same fashion. Red Sox can’t complain because they were the beneficiaries of the same tactics.

  276. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 1:14 am

    TVs all around the bar. Bunch of us Yankee fans watching the game on YES network. A group of Sox fans have their eyes on the Yankee game during a live look in from MLB Network. MLB Network 1 pitch behind the YES Network.

    2 outs, 2 strikes in the bottom of the 9th. Dan Johnson goes yard. Us Yankee fans start going nuts. The Boston group swings their heads around to see Tampa fans cheering. They flip their heads back around and see Dan Johnson’s ball land beyond the RF fence.

    Classic moment.

    My educated guess is that ESPN will talk more about the Rays beating the Yankees (but won’t mention that the AAA team was on the field) then they will about the O’s beating the Sox ;)

  292. nyyfana September 29th, 2011 at 1:22 am

    Kind of funny that the “classy” Adrian Gonzalez makes excuses game after game, whether it be about his injury, the Yankees not playing full lineups, or somehting Ive heard from him after nearly every loss this month, umpires squeezing him. Whereas Papelbon the “classless” one takes responsibility and does not blame anything but himself.

  293. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 1:22 am

    Guess what? Adam Jones DID figure in that perfect collapse tonight. He threw Scrutaro out at the plate in the top of the 9th!

    Another moment in 6 Degrees of Separation. Adam Jones, my heart and soul fantasy player, throws Scutaro out at the plate and keeps it a one-run game so that destiny can unfold and Papelbum needs to give up just two runs for the O’s to win it.

    :)

  303. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 1:34 am

    “Papelbon: Whatever doesn’t kill ya makes you stronger”

    Yeah I’m sure that will make his whole team feel better. The EEI guys asked Kruk a really interesting question. If your offense keeps working and working and your pitching keeps losing you games, does the offense start to resent the pitching? Kruk said yes, it happened when he was with Philly. He said it wasn’t the same because they were a last-place team but if they were in the situation the Sux was in, it definitely would feel worse.

    Papelbum blows their last postseaon game against the Angels – the last time they were in. Papelbum blows their last game of the season to keep them from going to the postseason. And that’s the best he has? What a self-centered oaf he is.

  314. CaryYankee September 29th, 2011 at 8:41 am

    As a yankee fan who lived in Boston for 10 years, i’m very happy to see them go hide under a rock for the winter. The Detroit Verlanders are the only team I’m concerned about until we get to Phily. I feel pretty good about where we are.

    The one thing that’s a head scratcher is Girardi’s use of pitchers last night. Why didn’t Betances get more work? He used pitchers like it was a spring training game. No pitcher on the postseason roster should have touched a ball last night – Maybe starters like AJ who need to get some work in to transition to the pen.

    Don’t get me wrong – the result is what matters. I’m ecstatic and don’t want to be critical . 4-5 innings from Bettances, 2 from Brackman would have been useful, I think.

  315. longtimefan September 29th, 2011 at 9:45 am

    This game is why I find Girardi annoying. Got real cute with use of relievers and then paid the price at the end of the game. Bringing guys in to pitch to one batter is absurd and then turning it over to guys (Logan&Alyala) who are suppose to be reliable relievers that blow the game is
    stupid. Sure hope this doesn’t come back to bite us in the ass!

It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter.

    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.
