    Our Pitching needs to get back on track or we have no chance.

    Perhaps it starts today ?

    Guess they’ll have to figure out who takes Hughes turn the next time round.

    Huff showed us nothing. I was in favor.

    I wouldn’t run him out there again.

    He really blew a big opportunity.

    You can blame Selig for that.


    Selig isn’t responsible for Fantasy Football and Gambling. 2 Huge reasons why football is very popular


    He’s to blame for underselling the game. Of all the major sports baseball doesn’t promote its stars enough.

    Wells in the lineup at the expense of Gardner. He’s punting the series.

    We need Samurai Kuroda back.

  6. J. Alfred Prufrock September 8th, 2013 at 11:50 am

    I don’t
    The Huff
    Thing since Boston is now a righty-heavy club. Ortiz and the other lefty is Ellsbury. Gone is AGon and the slugging lefties
    Of the early-mid 2000s.

    Await Geno Smith

    I don’t think it mattered if it was Hughes or Huff, Huff was worth a shot, he had been pitching well even though it was sss.

    I Await Geno Smith

    I await E.J. Manuel! You get the playbook, we get the Manuel.

    I think Hughes for all his issues probably would have fared better; in any case when it became clear we were gettin Chase Wright he should have been removed.

    Boston pitching other than the closer and Peavey has been bad enough to keep even sub middling pitching from us in all 3 games and we were able to chase Peavey as well

    Better BP management and we may have won at least 1 or 2 of these games. A damn shame

    Gardner has been our best player lately so let’s sit him. Ichiro has looked awful. Let’s play him.

    Exiled you and the Straw have Buffalo IN common – I guess you like the Fla St connection too eh?

    Exiled, I’m leaving the yanks in the caring hads of you UnKnown and Luis – make sure we have the 15 runs today and not the 13 ok? That game may be higher scoring than this one. Lester meltdown :)

    Do whatever you have to!

    We should be up by 2 in this series. In game 1 had Mo been Mo we would have won by a run. In game 2 had we put in a reliever who could actually record an out without giving up a HR, we would have won. For that matter where is Betances? The guy was basically unhittable as a AAA reliever. Why was he not used in this series? We know that D’Rob will be the closer next year, but who will set up? We (and Betances) need to know where he stands at this point. If he could have recorded a few key outs over the past few games what that have done for his confidence? What would that have done for the front office as they look to rebuild the team in the offseason? Instead be will probably come in today, after not having pitched in almost a week, and he will probably get bombed. Oh well.

    Is it heresy if I suggest Nunez is our best SS? Derek Jeter is still hurt. You can see it throughout his game.

  15. J. Alfred Prufrock September 8th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Mac I don’t like it either at least little B could try to drag bunt his way on and then use his legs.

    I see a lot of Alex. Riticism here but Reynolds makes that play – and a decent 1B glove does – we win that game

    Well Holmes dressed
    So that should help the
    Rookie out here in the MeAdowlands

    Go Kuroda-san go Alex go Robi go Yanks

    And send out search party for Dealin

    good one, all

  16. Russell Munson September 8th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Why would you use Betances when you have people like Jim Miller and Matt Daley available?

  17. austinmac September 8th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    We should have won all the games if we just had out scored them. The games are nine innings. They won. They deserved to win. Maybe we can deserve to win today.

    Haven’t read any posts yet (just getting in) but I’ll tell you what bothers me. There is no question Ortiz is juicing. Yesterday even one of my brothers acknowledged it and he’s a staunch Sux fan. My nephew was trying to say that Ortiz was clean because he had 20 homers when he was with Minny – something like that – and my brother interjected and said “Mike, remember what I told you. It’s not what he’s doing now, it’s the age.” And my nephew said “Oh yeah” and that was the end of it. My brother had been asking me what I thought about Arod, etc.

    It’s painful to see him get away with it and to see how he’s protected. It’s painful knowing that Selig intentionally turns a blind eye to any and all goings-on at fenway. It really makes me sick. It’s painful to see Ortiz – and other Sux players?- rake and to see them be able to continue to progress because of it, knowing that their “career years” are likely happening because of milkshake concoctions that they are able to consume freely.

    That’s all.

    “We should have won all the games if we just had out scored them.”

    Or outpitched them? 9 runs isn’t too shabby. This isn’t football.
