Zombie Hitler: Yanks in 4, Oakland in something, hopefully.

Hopefully the bats get hot and stay that way.

Terrified of Baltimore, though.


I like that prediction, but I'm not so scared of Baltimore - they're playing well tonight but it's against a depleted, defeated Texas team. The Yankees will have a couple days rest to get fresh, and they've got great momentum from sweeping the Sox and winning the division with a

1. Powerhouse offense, 4 HR and 9 runs in a single inning - their hitting is contagious, and games can get out of hand quickly when they're feeling it
2. Come-from-behind, pinch hit homer and walk-off dramatics - it's that kind of extra inning/walkoff drama that made 2009 so incredible, and they've cut off several slices of that in September
3. Another powerhouse offense, featuring the insanely hot hitting of Robinson Cano.

Not to mention the fact that for as close as it was, the Yankees held on through September, never relinquishing the lead - they're a great team right now and ought to do well starting Sunday.

Rangers load the bases with 2 outs, the Rangers still have some life in them

What_Would_Jimi_Do: Rex_Banner: Gunny Highway: Where does Thome figure into baseball history?

/aimed at resident stat dudes

600+ HR is a fantastic accomplishment. His career slash is .276/.402/.554 (147 OPS+) - that's awesome, especially the .402 OBP. He should go into the Hall on the first ballot. He might not for a few reasons, but I think he SHOULD

i agree, maybe not 1st or 2nd ballot tho


It seems like the biggest knock against him is that he was a DH. But he only had about 33% of his PA as a DH. He had 19% as a 3B. He was a first baseman more often than anything else

Scared to death.

Great season, O's! Whup the Yankees and A's for us, would you?

Thanks!

I give credit to the Ranger (Michael Young?) standing there, watching the Os celebrate onhis turf.
 
2012-10-05 11:59:56 PM

Whenever the Yanks go nuts with the bats, they always seem to suck for a bit afterwards. The two TD's the other day might work against us.

I'm not sure what the hell is going to happen.

He's had plenty of practice.

Axnay: Payback  Yes, we Oriole fans remember


Geez, payback indeed! Good for the O's - while I hope the Yankees move on to the ALCS, if the O's do win they will have my support 100%. Good for them!

Two things:
A) three day break in between kinda negates that
B) it wasn't so much the Yankees going nuts as it was the Red Sox completely rolling over

That is cool. Can't feel too bad for the Rangers. Two WS in a row.

I bet that would sit nicely for you.

We could also have Os/Tigers vs Giants and the Clockwork Orange Battle.

Eh, they had the day off after that - I expect good things. I have to wonder about one intangible: a lot of these guys haven't been to an ALDS, I wonder if they'll be nervous at all.

Remember, the Yankees will still have the advantage of setting their rotation the way they want, home field for the last three, Robinson Cano...

And don't take this defeat of Texas to mean more than it does for the O's - this game was to the O's what Wednesday's game was to Yankees - as sure a win as you could predict.
 
2012-10-06 12:04:50 AM  
Yay Orioles!
 
2012-10-06 12:05:36 AM  
Game 6.

That was it. The kind of albatross you never kill. So very sad. Welcome to Buffalo, Texas.

They just need one of the first two. If they can't take two out of three at home, they don't deserve to move on

Cougar Town on TBS? Awesome.
