  1. 7th inning. Bases loaded 3 times. No runs for Yanks. Robbed by great plays twice. Last one was just complete ineptitude.

    I think I'm going to be sick.

  2. Arod, Swisher, and Granderson might as well be automatic outs. Cano doesn't look like he is caring at the plate.

  3. This isn't going to end well. The saving grace is that it won't take long. The Yanks simply can't beat the Tigers in a big spot. This is three times in seven years. They beat the Yanks the way the Yanks used to beat the Red Sox prior to 2004. That's more than just a coincidence.

  4. Swisher is the one who needs a benching. I'm sure everyone is happy with putting in chavez, I hope you guys are happy about that one.

    F&%K Swisher. Seriously. I blame this game on him. He cost them two runs, while doing jack s$*T on offense.

  5. I've never been so up and down emotionally in any postseason ever. I'm not sure I can watch tomorrow. I may die from a heart attack.

  6. why bench JUST A-Rod? Cano can sit – what is he now, 2-33? and 0-6 or 0-7 in this game? Alex could NOT do any worse. At least they finally took out Granderson.

    pathetic. Swisher – at least he got ONE hit.

  7. I wouldn't blame the game on Swisher, though that play stunk… I'd blame the game on Girardi inexplicably not letting Robertson come out to start the 12th, and then equally inexplicably not intentionally walking Delmon Young with first base open and one out.
