ALDS Game One Spillover Thread III
Jeter, A-Rod & CC lead Yanks to Game One win

Earlier today the Phillies rode the left arm of Cliff Lee to a win over the Rockies in Game One of the Division Series, and now it’s time for the other NLDS to get underway. The Dodgers will start lefty Randy Wolf (11-7, 3.23) at home, while the Cards will counter with Comeback Player of the Year winner and Cy Young candidate Chris Carpenter (17-4, 2.24).

    I used to have espn insider but it really didn’t give me anything special. I just dropped the insider. I go to fox sports for my sports news now. I’m going to pay for scout.com next because I feel it’s superior in the minor league coverage than espn could ever give.

    • pat

      Take everything scout.com says with a grain of salt.

      • Accent Shallow

        Are any of the MiL sites completely trustworthy?

        • pat

          I don’t know, I don’t have a sub to BA, I just kinda make my own assessments from all the info that’s available over the web. Don’t get me wrong, pplus is a great site that provides tons of info but he gets a little over optimistic with his evaluations. Seems like eeeeverybody flashes a plus curve and change, eeeverybody’s fb has tons of movement.

      • Sean Serritella

        Really? I didn’t know they weren’t trustworthy. What’s a good site to pay for that has great minor league info on the Yankees then?

        • JMK aka The Overshare

          BA is good.

          • Sean Serritella

            Thanks. Baseball America is good.

            • scooter

              With any luck, the guy taking over for Chad Jennings on the Scranton (AAA) beat will be half as good getting interviews and info.

              Mike Ashmore is in the same league – works tirelessly, gets a lot of info.

              Way back when, I always liked Frank Piliere when he was on scout.com. Now he’s on Saber-scouting – dunno how that site is for Yankee coverage – it’s a general scouting site

  • Accent Shallow

    So why isn’t Kershaw starting this game?

    • Mike bk

      i think he pitched on sat so it would be short rest. he is going tomorrow.

  • Mike bk

    base hit with carpenter pitching and it might be over already.

  • Mike bk

    wow ibb to albert w 0 out in the first.

  • Accent Shallow

    That was a gorgeous DP.

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    That was some double play turn.

  • Mike bk

    Matt Kemp is a beast.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Kemp destroyed that thing.

  • Accent Shallow

    I really can’t root for Carpenter for some reason.

    • V

      He’s my favorite non-Yankee :-P

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Dude wins Comeback Player of the year every three years. What’s not to like?

  • Accent Shallow

    James Loney: gorgeous swing, but apparently wildly overrated.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      .399 SLG out of 1B = not good.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Six homers in Dodger Stadium the last two years. One this year.

        • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

          No wonder the fans got so excited that Loney flied out to deep right.

          • Lanny

            And people wondered why they tried to obtain Victor Martinez and A Gonzalez.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Power shortage at the end of the season? Loney had his highest split SLG of the year in Sept/Oct at .455.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Rasmus really hit that rookie wall, huh?

    .216/.278/.314 in the second half.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Best mustache in baseball: Brendan Ryan of the Cards.

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      It’s Barbershop Quartet quality.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      I just saw a Michelin ad on the side of RAB.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        Did it make you want to get ripped in four weeks?

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    That throw be DeRosa was the worst throw ever in the history of throwing.

    • scooter

      It sure wasn’t good

      As Stockton said, he had Ethier at home if he threw it there.

      Scully’s doing radio on KABC – I feel like muting TBS

    • Mike bk

      part of that might have been derosa getting his throwing hand stepped on and cut on the bases.

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Juuuust a bit above Schumaker.

  • scooter

    Holy crap – Joe Torre loves him some Jeff Weaver in the playoffs

    • anon

      This is almost funny now.

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Did I just hear the Jeopardy Daily Double horn?

    • scooter

      I’ll take “Anal bum cover” for 7,000

      • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

        You’ll rue the day you’ve crossed me, Trebek.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Yes, yes you did.

      • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

        Thank goodness. I thought I was going batty for a second.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    The pitching in this game is atrocious on both teams…

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Ahhh, Arli$$.

  • Zack

    so where do i tune in to see the Carpenter is not an ace discussion tomorrow? or is that only for NY pitchers?

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    The Dodgers fans are putting those in YSIII tonight to shame.

    • Tank the Frank

      Thank you. The Stadium tonight was pathetic IMO. I saw a lot of suites and ties in the lower levels either on their cell phones or golf clapping in big moments. It really made me sad.
