    And, they play the games on the field, and not on paper, no?

    So, maybe Cliff Lee implodes this evening or the Yankees just find a way to beat the Rangers ace. And, maybe A.J. Burnett throws a gem in Game 4 as well. Anything can happen, etc., etc.

    Hope springs eternal. That’s why we love the game.

    Or, is it pretty much a done deal that the Yankees have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel? What do you think?

      If the Giants can get to Halladay, I don’t see why the Yanks can’t get to Lee. This game is not an automatic loss.

      I just hope that tonight doesn’t end up like this one:

      Beating the likes of Cliff Lee and winning behind the likes of A.J. Burnett are just the types of things you should expect from a championship team. No excuses, just win.

      I think someone commented here the other day – the Yankees don’t have to beat Cliff Lee, they just have to beat the Rangers. Tonight’s game could be 1-1 after 7 innings, and if that happens, the Yankees have done a good job of giving themselves a chance to beat the Rangers.

      I would say that at this point, the Rangers are slightly better than even money to win the series.

      That doesn’t mean “one foot in the grave, one foot on a banana peel”, and it doesn’t mean I expect them to win.

      I say again what I said yesterday: this game is not a must-win, but if they don’t win it, then tomorrow’s Game 4 becomes must-win.

      More or less.
