  1. Where are all those guys who were complaining about the Yankee collapse? And the ones who think Girardi should be fired? Or that Ibby was useless?

    I have used great will power to avoid “Where Have All the Doubters Gone.”

  2. Looked like Russell reached in towrds the bouncing ball to distact Iglesias, as he was running by.

  3. Girardi should pitch Warren in the 9th.

    Hmmm, maybe not, it’s been so long since he’s pitched, it may be setting him up for disaster.

    • I know it’s going to take some time yo get his timing back, but damn he can afford a Cartier.

  4. If y’all don’t here from me it’s because I’ve been getting data base errors time & time again.

  5. Amazing that they could lose 10 games of lead, then see the Birds in the rearview on our tail, and no more. Never let them take it.

    The Rangers just realized that they’ve got competition.

    Remember when we lost to Detroit last year? It was over all over sudden. Felt like we should yet come back.

    • This seeding is nuts. Yanks wind up playing teams with almost the same record they had. The only team significantly worse is Detroit.

        • The Yankees won 95 games and are the No. 1 seed. But they will wind up playing either Texas or Baltimore, who both won 93 games. The one significantly worse team is Detroit, which won 87 games, but the Yankees don’t draw them, even though theoretically the No. 1 seed gets to play the weakest team.
