    As a result of the start time for Game 5 of the 2010 ALCS, I would imagine that many fans in the NY/NJ/CT area will be following the game – at least the start of it – via Gameday or some other online connection. If you are one of those, or are watching the game, or listening to it, while also online, and would like to chat with others who are doing the same, please feel free to use the comments section of this post to chat about the game.

      In the best-of-seven LCS era, the team that has gone up, 3-1 has won the series 42 of 48 times. The six teams that came back from a 3-1 deficit were the 2007 Red Sox, the 2004 Red Sox, the 2003 Marlins, the 1996 Braves, the 1986 Red Sox and the 1985 Royals.

      Too late to get some Yankees “Why Not Us?” shirts printed up?

      Definitely too late.

      Why Not Us:
      -Lousy bullpen
      -No offense
      -Bad starting pitching
      -Inconsistent managing
      -Incredibly hot opponent

      But, just imagine, IF they DO win today. That means they only have to win in Game 6 to stay alive. And, in Game 7, anything can happen. Heck, Cliff Lee could throw out his back tying his shoes before the game.

      All they have to do is win today.

      Then again, they couldn’t win any of the last three games…

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      Sure, in theory, anything can happen at any time.

      But I don’t like the Yankees chances today or Friday, to say nothing of a potential Game 7 with Cliff Lee.

      Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand why anyone would think that they’re not coming back to win this thing. I watched the 1st 4 games and saw Texas beat New York in 35 of 36 innings too. Plus, I saw the Yankees stink it up in their last 26 games of the season. And, I realize that winning the ALDS may just be a case of the Twins can’t beat the Yankees.

      But, boy, oh boy, it would be interesting to take a headcount of all those in Yankeeland today, at this moment, who think think this thing is in the books as a loss, already, and then look all those people up on the day of Game 7 – if the Yankees can push it to Game 7.

      Granted, I’d be among those who are resigned today and who would be dancing a jig the day of Game 7. Just curious how many more would be like me.

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      I’m with you Steve, and I know of three others. Then again there are another group of three who would be pessinmistic with a ten run lead in the bottom of the ninth in game 7 so……. If I were CC, I’d buzz Andrus with the first pitch to set the tone!

      What’s that going to do? If the Yanks want to play hardball, it’s Josh Hamilton they should be drilling, not a no-hitting SS like Andrus.

      And NO. The G doesn’t stand for Gibson (McCarver would love that!)

    13. October 20th, 2010 | 4:17 pm

      Good news, bad news, for CC in the 1st: DP and a K, but, 2 hits allowed too.

    14. October 20th, 2010 | 4:25 pm

      It’s now an 8-inning game. No score in the first either team. If Mo is good for two, then CC and others only have to hold Texas for 6 more innings.

      I have little confidence the Yanks can beat a lefty. Witness the mighty 22 yr old Derrick(?) Holland and 40 yr old Darren Oliver shut us down last night. And of course Lee makes us looks foolish. Only when the lefty is wild, and puts runners on via BB, do the NYY have a chance. We’ll see how today unravels, but I do think Washington was smart to stock his bullpen w/ lefties.

      Berkman from the right side needs Alex as a target!

      Wilson getting wild here in the 2nd…

      Wilson wild with walks is wonderful!!!

    23. October 20th, 2010 | 5:03 pm

      Three-zip. 21 outs away from the W. Mo’s good for 6 of those. Pack the bags for Texas! OK, maybe that’s wishful thinking…

      Like I said…I liked their chances today…Key game will be game 6 if Yanks can figure out a way to win that game you never know in a game 7…We all know from last year Andy knows how to close out a series!

    27. RobertGKramer@AOL.Com

      See. With Alex out of sight, Berkman does nothing!

      CC @ 57 pitches!

    30. October 20th, 2010 | 5:32 pm

      Whoops, had to take a call and missed back-to-back and belly-to-belly. Wonder if the Stadium is rocking? I’ll be in my car soon – can’t wait to listen to the radio.

      16 outs to go with a five run pad. Nice.

      I see no reason for that kind of optimism. Hughes is a fastball pitcher facing a fastball hitting team. He doesn’t command the curve consistently enough or throw anything else offspeed to make this a good matchup. Game 2 was quite predictable.

      Never a doubt we get one from Berky with Alex on base (and in sight!)

      Just watched a few innings. CC not sharp. Lucky to only give up 1 run. His stuff appears diminished from a few years ago. amazing stat: Swish now 0-25 career postseason w/ RISP.
      Still, a win in sight. I’ll take it.
