C'mon Sox.

I want to see a baseball team win fewer games in a month than an NFL team.

In tonight's game at Fenway, the seventh inning stretch will feature Bobby Valentine trying to punch the nearest broadcast team in the mouth.

There is also the battle in the basement. Blue Jays lead the BoSox only by a game. Lets see who practiced losing more.

/they know they have to play the same amount no matter what, right?

I think the pitching staff has a contest to see who can give runs back the quickest. Scoring runs in the top of the inning = surrendering runs in the bottom of the inning. Every. Farking. Night

I'm hoping for a 16-10 game tonight. Lined up my fantasy team appropriately.

How the hell does Arod have more runs than rbi? This would be a huge gripe if I were a fan considering they put him in the three and four hole no matter what. (inb4 no hole jokes) You can complain about pitching all you want, but the Yanks batting order is pants on head too.
 
2012-09-12 09:23:08 AM
Best thing about last night was Jacoby getting the game winning RBI on his birthday.

That is all kinds of awesome there.

Their record in September was 7-20.

Know of any NFL team that won 7 games in September?

I think the Mariners would have been better off asking for Chris Davis instead of Justin Smoak in the Cliff Lee trade.

Why do the Yankees care? Still going to the post season, as it said back in Late June early July they only had to play .500 baseball which they have been doing.

Now question is since they haven't showed any pitching or hitting, I think the "laid back" approach is seriously going to backfire or has already, doesn't help having Tex aggravate his injury, he's probably done unless it gets down to the wire.
Gardner, Pettitte might come back althought I highly doubt it.

They probably just don't know how to respond when runs are scored because they're likely in shock, I'd seen enough after the top of the first to know exactly what was going to happen. A-Rod, Cano and Granderson come up with two runners in scoring position, not one of them gets a hit, and they score one run when they should have had 5.

At that point, TV goes off, and I went out to dinner. They don't hit with RISP, they haven't all damn year, and unless they hit 5 HRs, they aren't winning. I hope they miss the playoffs, because they'll be out quickly anyway.

They could easily miss the playoffs actually. Right now, they're sitting in the 2nd wild card spot (O's have the tiebreaker for the division), are 2 behind the A's for the 1st WC and only have a 2 and 2.5 lead over the Rays and Halos respectively. Even if they got the 2nd WC, having the entire season hang on ONE game IN Oakland is not a position you want to be in.

..and what laid back approach? You're witnessing honest-to-goodness struggling.

I know this probably isn't important to anybody since this team is not nestled on a coastline, but the Milwaukee Brewers have won 17 of their last 22 and are now 4 games out of the wildcard. Good thing they caught evil Ryan Braun and made him get off teh roids because he is having a HORRIBLE year now. He's only 7th in batting, 2nd in RBIs, and 1st in HRs.

GO BREW CREW!

Tiebreakers are employed if both teams qualify for post-season (that was the rule in the past.. not sure if it was changed this year). If the tie meant one team missing the playoffs, then they played a 163.

Eh, you gotta want them to at leas MAKE the playoffs. The Yankee haters will cream themselves if the Yankees don't at least make it. They'll still cream themselves when the Yankees lose quickly, but it won't be quite as good.

Extending the season by one day in the Wild Card playoff game isn't going to do much to mitigate that - and I couldn't give a shiat about Yankee haters. They cream themselves if the Yankees don't win the World Series in less than 6 games, who gives a fark what any of them think?

I got ya, in terms of who gets home field. Was stuck on whether or not they qualify for the post-season.

You know I give a shiat, because I like to see them to disappointed as often as possible. And even if they lose the next day as a WC entry, in a few years it will boil down to whether they made the playoffs or didn't. I don't want to read, "That was the year they added another wild card and the Yankees still didn't get in - wow did they suck." After all, that's what we're going to say about the 2012 Red Sox.

This year they play another game unless the tie is for wild card seeding. The difference between winning the division and playing a 1 game playoff is enough that Selig decided they would have play in games for everything. So if the Orioles, Rays and Yankees all wind up tied, the third team in the seedings could play 5 games in 5 nights with a plane flight after every game: last game of the season, the first play-in game away, the second play-in game at home (if they follow the old 3 way tie rules and the best team gets to play one game but on the road, the second gets to play at home and the third gets to play at home if they win the first play-in), then the wild card away, then the division series opener at home.  Right now the O's hold tiebreaker leads over both the Rays and Yankees (7-6 H2H over the Rays and Division record over the Yankees) and the Rays have the tiebreaker over the Yankees (9-6 H2H) so that team would be the Yankees. 

\if they don't all get caught by the Angels first.

The only thing better than watching A-Fraud end the Yankees season with a strikeout two years in a row would be watching him do it THREE years in a row.

This is going to be a 12-2 game. One of these two teams will play so badly that they make the other team's shiatty pitcher look like Cy Young.

It's real easy to get frustrated. I've been pretty pissed at this team for a while now too. But let's not go overboard, here. The 2000 Yankees went 13-17 in September and limped into the postseason. As a team, they had a 105 OPS+ w/ RISP, and they had below average offensive production from 1B, LF, RF, and DH - four spots that should provide a ton of pop. Posada, Jeter, and Bernie absolutely carried that team offensively - they were the only three regulars who had an OPS+ above 100. David Justice did as well, but he was added mid-season.

This year's team also sucks in September (obviously). But as a team they have a 108 OPS+ w/ RISP. Only three regulars (Martin, Fat Andruw, and Ibanez) have an OPS+ below 100. Chavez has been damn good off the bench, posting a 120 OPS+ in 276 PA.

They can still pull out of this and make something happen.

The 2000 Yankees had at least a 3.5 game lead in the AL East every day from August 27th until they clinched the division. They also had three reliable postseason starters in Pettitte, Clemens and El Duque, and an incredibly reliable bullpen featuring the best closer in the universe.

This team farking blows. They're 22-28 in their last 50 games, Yeah, the 2000 team had a bad final 18 games. This team has been mediocre for more than two months.
