  1. From what I tell Inge is horrible overall, and even though he hit much better against lefties, it's still not exactly what you'd want against a guy like Sabathia. Is there something I'm not seeing about Inge, a mental move, or just something with Betemit??

  2. The tigers lineup is horrible…1-3 hitters each have wOBAs below .310. Peralta, one of the teams best hitters, is batting 8th…

    What is leyland thinking?

  3. A big thank you to the first two commenters for jinxing the Yanks completely (even though I privately tend to agree)!

  4. Red Sox presser going as we speak explaining firing of Francona. Wouldn't want to distract from the post-season, would we John Henry? Keep it classy, BoSox!

  5. Three very jittery plays from the Tigers' catcher and infield in the bottom of the first allow the Yanks to tie the game without a hit.

  6. Jason, if both Starting pitchers leave the game, presumably Yanks get the better end Since CC pitched twice, and Verlander just once, even if they both come back on short rest Yanks get an extra inning out of the Ace right?

  7. OH G-D!!! MAKE THE TBS ANNOUNCERS AND GAME BREAK PEOPLE STOP!!! Even if I liked them when they were playing, I mean… man…

  8. This just in: if game is postponed for rain, it will be rescheduled for a World Series travel day.

  9. Sorry, but I'm actually somewhat happy with the delay. Had to do some things and just got home now and only wound up missing an inning and a half. Speaking of which, what's with Verlander? 2 walks and a wild pitch on the strike out to Jeter in the first inning. Does he look as bad as that sounds?

    And CC, 4 strike outs in 2 innings. Does he look as good as that sounds?

  10. ok – game postponed. do either come back tomorrow?

    I'm not a pitcher – but does throwing 25 pitches absolutely preclude a good outing the next day?
