    No complaints here.

    I like the lineup

  3. butterball October 7th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    So far, every home team has lost, right?

    How long can I appropriately mourn not signing Cespedes?”

    Til we get Justin Upton:….so forever
    ——————–

    I agree :(

    Tonight, all affiliated members of Team Greedy get a roll call. I’m heading out for now but fear not.. I shall be back in time to start this game off properly: Greed is good.

    Not Detroit.

  6. tomingeorgia October 7th, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    I love baseball games, any games, but this one is a doozy.

  7. butterball October 7th, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    Dang…I thought they started in Oakland.

  8. tomingeorgia October 7th, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    My remote is smoking, DET-OAK, Freddy Funk on the Seniors tour, big car race at Talladega, Giants-Browns, Falcons-Skins, et al. Fine day in sports, and I’m exhausted, even before the only game that counts!

  9. jackamir October 7th, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    This is a circular lineup. I couldn’t have done a better job myself..It’s got the smell of a winner..
    Lets go Yanks!!
    Lets go CC!!!!
    Lets get it on!!!
    Score early & often—-!!!

  10. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    The Lineup is perfect. It should stay the exact same vs a lefty with nunez replacing ibanez as the only change.

  11. tomingeorgia October 7th, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    Damned Tigers, but man, that was a great ballgame!

  12. JobaTipsHisCap October 7th, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    Lol
    I guess 2-3 format works great on better team! Thanks, MLB.

    Anyway oak sucks

  13. Trigeminal Neuralgia Yank October 7th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    RAB saying Gardner starting???
    Ichiro hurt?!?!

  14. Trigeminal Neuralgia Yank October 7th, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Ugh, just saw correction, thank god!

  15. Tabbert October 7th, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Oakland is not out of it by and means. I don’t think the tigers make it out of the oakland.co stadium or whatever the heck its called these days. A’s will take care of business at home and sweep the final three.

  16. mick October 7th, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Joe going for the throat.

  17. Ys Guy October 7th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    i love the lineup i think arod and swisher are both in a great position to do damage.

    david wilson goes into the end zone untouched, the giants game is over and its all about the yankees from here on out…

  18. deleonj October 7th, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    i like the lineup. i would switch swisher and tex and russel and raul if i had a say but overall i’m really pleased :-)

    Let’s go Yanks!

  19. NYY13251 October 7th, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Love it!!

    Wish Jones was playing though. Love his bat

    KIDDING!!!!

    Two hours! LETS GO!!

  20. mick October 7th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    surprised Chen isn’t going at the Stadium.
    thought we could see 3 leftys there, if nec.

  21. Benny Blanco October 7th, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    I love this lineup….

  22. LathamJoe October 7th, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    I like the lineup. One disappointment with the 25-man Playoff roster – I feel bad for Cody Eppley. I think he is more reliable (against righties) than Chamberlain. Joba has location issues and has permittrd many inherited runners to score in his limited appearances

  23. CountryClub October 7th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    I can’t post a link at the moment, but there’s a good article on RAB about how teams don’t try to steal or run on Balt’s OF arms.

  24. rizzo8118 October 7th, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    Surpirsed were not seeing Eric Chavez get the start, given Raul’s clutch PH ability late in the game…

    I hope you’re right, Tabbert – Go A’s!

    btw – the A’s play at the Coliseum …
    one of the rare stadiums that hasn’t ever changed its name ;)

  26. Joe from Long Island October 7th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    LathamJoe – it may have to do with Joba’s greater ability to get a strike out than Eppley. That, and Eppley is more of righty specialist.

    Detroit has got to be the luckiest team in baseball
