Joe Girardi just announced that Freddy Garcia will start Game Three of the ALDS. A.J.Burnett will pitch out of the bullpen, hence tonight’s tune-up appearance.
I like it
Freddy is the right choice. AJ in the pen so he’ll be on the roster. Can’t wait for Friday.
I agree with this move, however I’d have Colon in the bullpen and by AJ some good tickets out in the bleachers.
Based on Colon’s wonderful September? Or his rapidly decreasing velocity? Perhaps the fact that he is far exceeded the number of innings he’s thrown in years and looks to be tiring?
AJ has had a terrible season, but he’s in better form right now than Bartolo.
Colon didn’t look bad the other night against the Rays. I would still trust him out of the pen over Burnett.
He’s really earned it.
Anybody see Dan Pliesak’s reaction to I think it was Longo’s walk off? “You’re kidding me, you’re fucking kidding me right?!”
lol did he seriously say that?
Haha, they were filming it but it wasn’t ever supposed to air but Erik Karros wanted to show how Dan and Howard reacted to show how they’re fans too. It wasn’t like he was pissed he was shocked.
Then he went to high five Howard Renyolds but he was to busy running all round the set.
Who are the redsox starting in game 3
i think lester, o no, i forgot, he’ll be sitting at home
we should b embarassed with tonite. it’s like how we fucked up vietnam. went to fight a war but really didnt want to go all out to win. we played not to lose. now the rays have confidence and we go into playoffs shitting in our own bed. this one also on girardi. u make most of the team play as hard as it did to b in position to win the game and u don’t pitch mo. shame on u. should have played all minor leaguers from the start.
haha troll, yes yanks were really trying with proctor up, kinda like sunday night with ellsbury. enjoy the offseason!! by the way, nice dp by scutaro, you can watch that til spring training
Our team is healthy, well rested, on top of the AL East, and have secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Our most bitter historic rival is flying home stunned and empty. We lost a game tonight pitching Proctor to more batters than any other pitcher and he won’t even be on the postseason roster. All of this makes me feel SO ashamed.

You can’t be serious. Mo pitching is doing what for the yankees, a meaningless win and risking injury
I blame Vietnam and Iraq on Cashman.
I blame Girardi. Hippie asshole!
sorry for double post. pissedd as hell
Pissed as hell over a meaningless game. Wonder what you’ll feel like if they lose Friday.
Sorry for being a troll?
You’re an idiot
You’re pissed as hell about a team losing. And I don’t think that team is the Yankees.
I agree. I am totally embarrassed. What the hell is Girardi thinking, resting players before the playoffs. Doesn’t he realize that every game is a must win?
In baseball terms, tonight was one of the greatest nights in MLB history.
It really was, although I was selfishly hoping for at least one game tomorrow.
It’s as if God personally timed the Oriole rain delay.
One of? No. It has to be the greatest.
4 teams tied for two playoff spots playing four meaningful games?
Three of those games go into extra innings?
Three games where the losing team was one out away from winning? Two games where the the losing team was one STRIKE away from winning? Two walk offs? A bajillion plays at the plate?
A comeback from 7-0 down in the bottom of the eighth? The four meaningful games combining to cap off two of the more memorable collapses in baseball history?
No way a single regular season night has ever been this amazing. No way. It’s never happened. We just saw history folks.
People will be talking about this night for years to come. I feel bad for anyone that missed it.
if meaningless, tell it to the starters like jeter who played. it’ called pride
I bet Peter Gammons is in an Emergency room somewhere right now on a suicide watch.
Jeter-Joe was trying to get him to .300
Granderson-still kind of slumping, try to get out of it before Fri.
Tex-Gotta keep the righty swing down, otherwise he’s screwed
Robby-Young, Athletic, plays 155-160 games a year anyway
Jones-Only plays against Lefties anyway
Montero-Needs as Many ABs as possible
Nunez-Not a starter
Laird-Not a starter.
btw are normal Right handed lineup is gonna look like this
(oh and they’re not going to play like it’s Spring Training.)
Had to post:
You can’t predict baseball … but you can gloat a little when the experts pick your rival to do well and they don’t even make the playoffs.
Haha that second link, they picked the TWINS over the Yankees in the ALDS.
By my count, 33 out of 43 ESPN ‘experts’ picked the Red Sox to win the World Series. Group think much?
The flags are flying at half mast in Bristol Connecticut today.
we go into playoffs losing four straight and playing without pride. really, u find this a good team frame of mind to be in? shouls of just then forfeited the last 4 games
Do you have spell-check or are you five years old?
These last four games were practically spring training games for the Yankees. If they were actually trying to win do you really think they would have used, what was it 11 pitchers in this game? They don’t mean a goddamn thing going into the playoffs.
How bout’ them Red Sox by the way.
the pest is nespn says that the rays won, but the braves collapsed, wonder what happened to the sox?
best not pest
According to the Associated Press Peter Gammons collapsed as Reimold crossed the plate.
Espn is probabl going to do a show about the braves collapse and just mention that the” best team” in baseball couldn’t get it done in september
ESPN is going on and on about how great the Sox played tonight.
They’re also going on and on about how great the Wehrmacht were at Stalingrad.
dan shaunessy or however the fuck you spell his name, right!
RT @DanBarbarisi: One Yankee player watching Pap blow the game said the Yankee clubhouse “Celebrated like WE just clinched” when the O’s won.
Has anybody looked at Fister’s numbers in the second half and the past month? Verlander hasn’t been the best pitcher on the Tiger’s staff — and it hasn’t even been close.
look further, his last 10 starts have come against:
I would hope he could put up good numbers against those teams.
Tampa and Baltimore are probably the best of that bunch offensively speaking.
So he wasn’t facing Murderer’s Row every night.
But all of those teams except Minnesota and Oakland scored over 700 runs this year.
And a 1.2 ERA!?!
Verlander’s ERA against those same teams this year:
Kansas City 1.59
CC’s ERA against those same teams this year:
Kansas City NA
In the subset of games you chose, Fister had a 1.2 ERA against those team.
I know it’s a small sample size. I said that I was only talking about the second half of this year.
And if I want to make a case against Fister, I point to the small sample size and the fact that his ERA was nearly a run higher on the road than in the cavernous confines of home.
joe d turning in his grave
Ted Williams is boooooooooooyyyy!
I have could never imagine someone to be so oblivious to the real world. Clearly someone wanted a lil boston pink sox magic tonight so the could make an epic charge into the plaoffs .__________.
Papelbon turning over another blown save.
PapelBLOWN. Remember? How we’re doing that now?
Karl Ravech is complaining the Yanks didn’t help out Boston.
It’s almost like he’s accusing the Yankees of collusion. He’s pissed they didn’t run out D-Rob and Mo. HAHAHAHAHA!
Yankees Cardinals. Cards won’t just lay down and die after this stretch and the Yankees can beat any of these teams with patience and good contact.
