      The Red Sox seem back on track since the tough series against us. Is anyone concerned if there is another NY-BOS ALCS? Seems like all the pressure would be on us. (I know that there are a lot of presumptions here but what’s your opinion.)

      @ ken:
      i think it might come down to home field advantage if we do see a Bos-NY ALCS. But, let’s get there first.

      Think you’re jumping the gun a little. Let’s clinch a playoff spot, then do something we haven’t done in five years…get out of the first round alive.

      My only concern is the Yankees staying hot and healthy and winning the division.

      Also, they were “back” to themselves in the last series and still lost two of three at home…one of which being a Beckett start. I’m not worried about the Red Sox right now, especially not when we’ve outplayed them and won six of the last seven games.

      They also seem “back on track” because they swept the lowly Blue Jays, won a single blow out game against us and have dominated the White Sox who are just awful (honestly, how did we lose 3 games to them?). Sox play very well at home and will beat bad teams there. Just wait until they hit the road where they are 31-33.

      I agree with YankCrank…let’s take care of business this afternoon, then focus on this weekend vs. Chicago, etc. After that, let’s figure out how to get out of the first round. THEN we can worry about the ALCS. Furthermore, just as we shouldn’t jump the gun on our own ALCS chances, the scumbags from that slum up north shouldn’t punch their own ALCS ticket either.

      Watching the Yanks today…man AJ Burnett is a good pitcher. As much as #62 could learn from Andy Pettitte, he could learn even more from Burnett. Burnett throws a fastball, a curveball and a slider and he mixes the locations of his breaking balls very well. Sometimes he’ll give you a curveball inside on a righty, sometimes he’ll throw it outside. He’ll throw his slider down and away or back you off the plate with it. #62 only throws his slider low-and-away to righties.

      #62: Shelve the arrogant demeanor and learn how to pitch from the aces on your staff. That and a gastric bypass will keep you around the big leagues you fatass idiot.

      PS – The Yankee lineup really shit the bed this afternoon. Too many baserunners got on and not nearly enough scored. It’s pathetic to lose a home series to the Texas Rangers, their 2009 improvement notwithstanding. Horrible series!
