If Tim McCarver and Joe Buck love Jonathan Papelbon so much, why don’t they just marry him?
Meanwhile, considering how poorly Sabathia and Carmona have pitched the last two nights, I’m starting to get the sinking suspicion that the Yanks just flat-out sucked during the ALDS. Cleveland’s pitching isn’t really that good.
Update 1:11 a.m.: Unsurprisingly, Eric Wedge’s stupid decision to pinch run for Travis Hafner with two outs in the 9th of a tie game has come back to haunt him. Trot Nixon will now bat against a lefty with two on and one out in the 11th. Do these managers never learn? Pinch-running against Papelbon with two outs is pretty useless.
Update 1:16 a.m.: Nevermind. That worked. And I sure am glad the Yanks never made that Melky-for-Gagne trade. What idiot suggested that?
