And, like I said, got out of it unscathed. The ability to pitch out of those jams says easily as much about a pitcher as getting into them in the first place.

True, I don't know much about baseball either so I'm sure your right haha

I am right, but I'm glad that you recognize it. :) Baseball is a strange game in how unpredictable it can be. A guy can look awful for an inning and then be scintillating for the next 8. Cody Ross, a relative nobody, is still beloved in San Francisco for being the hero 2 years ago. ARod, one of the best of all time, is hated in New York because of a small number of subpar performances in the playoffs tarnishing an otherwise remarkable career.

Lets see...

Cheer for the Blue Jays, no playoffs.

Back the Reds, bounced in round 1.

Board the Harper train, ousted in 5.

Fly with the O's, beaten by the Evil Empire.

Pray for the Bay...A's are out.






I quit. I'm just going to watch for the sake of team sports.

I love how so many of the idiot Yankee fans left early and all the rich people seats were empty for the 9th. How stupid do you feel now for leaving and missing that 9th inning?

EDIT: dear God Andy Dirks has looked like a little leaguer this game, Leyland can't possibly play him next game.

Seriously the Yankee strategy seems to be to just crowd the plate and the umpire won't call inside strikes. This guy is awful, so many balls that could've been strikes because Jeter or whoever just raised their elbows over the pitch. Should be pretty easy there moron, if it goes over the plate between the knees and the belt it's an out.

Came to read this thread thinking the Tigers finished off the Yankees. Then after reading posts in here I had to check to see if the Yankees actually won in the bottom of the 9th.

Can't believe it's in extra innings now.

Jeter has a fractured ankle and is done of the year.

As much as I hate the Yankees and love to see them lose it sucks that they lost a player like Jeter.

Even liking Ichiro is not enough for me to cheer for the Yankees. Though it would mitigate my displeasure if they did win. Same goes for Raul, always liked him in Seattle (my wife liked him too, but mostly because she likes saying his name). Actually, when you add in ARod and Rafael Soriano you can't deny a pretty solid contingent of ex-Mariners playing for the Yanks. That said, I doubt many Mariner fans are cheering for ARod. Soriano most would not have strong feelings towards, though I remember thinking they were very stupid to trade him (to the Braves for the decidedly unremarkable Horacio Ramirez if I recall correctly).


Whaaaat?? You didn't enjoy the deal for HoRam?? Haha...

A-Rod's 2012 salary is $30 million. Has there ever been a more pathetic waste of money? That strikeout tonight where he could've run to first may have sealed his fate for a while.

And Cano??? Another $14 mil? Disgusting.

Same, I don't like to see anyone (even Sean Avery) suffer a serious injury, plus I don't want the Yankees to have an excuse, I want them to lose with their A lineup on the field.

Yeah, sucks for Jeter. I'm not a fan, but I don't wish that on anyone.

Raoul has been amazing, but like Mullet, I can't cheer for the Yankees, even though they have him and Ichiro.

Speaking of Ichiro, I suppose he'll move to the leadoff spot now. They're going to want someone who can go the other way in the #2 spot. Swisher?

What about SS? Does A-Rod move over and Nunez play 3rd? Is he even on the playoff roster? (Although, I think you can add to the PR in the event of injury)

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Sucks about Jeter but I'm going to reserve my sympathy a little bit. The guy has been unbelievably durable for his career, and there are a lot of guys out there who would give both nuts to have his level of health. Injuries happen. Could ARod resurrect his season (and career?) by filling in for Jeter at shortstop? Alex was a better shortstop than Jeter but got moved to 3rd base because of precedence and ego more than because of ability back when the Yankees acquired him, but he's been at 3rd a long time since then. I think their best option is to do exactly that and put Chavez at 3rd base. Ichiro seems like an obvious choice to lead off now, and I wouldn't be too shocked if they put Granderson in the 2 spot despite his free-swinging ways. Swisher an option too, as has been mentioned, but while he handles the bat well, he's been struggling too. As I said on the last page, it's amazing to me how much of the angst in Yankeeland is focused against ARod's performance. He's been bad, but aside from Ibanez, Teixeira at some points, and Ichiro yesterday, no Yankee has been particularly impressive in the postseason, and Cano has been arguably worse than ARod.

I'm not cheering for the Yankees. I'm cheering for Ichiro to win his well deserved ring. I grew up watching Ichiro on the Mariners and he has given me many great memories, he just never had a chance to win the World Series because of the crapty ass team the mariners have. Ichiro deserves the ring more than anybody else on the Yanks. This also could be the last chance he has as he is 38 now and his contract is up at the end of the season. Ichiro retiring without a ring would make me pretty sad.

Well fine, but a lot of very good, very likable and very deserving players never get to win, so as much as I do like Ichiro I think it goes with being a professional athlete that you might never taste the champagne. I always respected Ray Bourque's game too but sure as hell wasn't cheering for him to win that Cup with the Avalanche. To be fair, he didn't bail on the team LeBron style, they traded him, but all the same hoping for the best for Ichiro for me can't counteract the fact that I detest the Yankees and don't want them to win under any circumstances.

On another note, has there ever been a person alive that was looking forward more to a mid-October trip to Detroit, Michigan than Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez?

Every Vancouver Canuck after the 2004-05 NHL lockout? :bigblush:

Seriously though, A-Rod has been brutal. I'm hoping he continues to struggle.

Boy, I'm not a Yanks fan but it's tough to not feel for Kuroda today, taking the three :rolleyes: Runs when the 2nd base ref clearly blew it in the 8th... of course I hope the Yanks don't rally out of frustration but just saying I feel for Hideki is all :P

How about them Tigers. I love Ichiro's game so it would be great to see him win a WS but I don't think Detroit could be beaten. Verlander is a great player. Superstar really.

Gotta love Card's game but Giants gonna take the series.

Detroit vs SF. Detroit wins WS. Great team. Love what Ilitch does with his teams. Great owner.

Yankees definitely got screwed on that call at second, but like Greg Zaun said, they're losing because they're not hitting, not because of umpires' calls...

Besides, the Yanks have had more than their fair share of calls go their way. Remember Jeffrey Maier? I'm sure Oriole fans do...
