• Tigers-Yankees Tied, After 10, In Game 1 Of 2012 ALCS

    Welcome to Sunday.

    I wonder how many hours these teams will have between the end of this game and the start of Game 2, later today?

      There were 8 post-season games in 1995. I think that’s the record?

      With this one, tonight, we have 4 extra inning games this post-season. Just 4 more to go, to tie…

      And, I think, the most extra inning games for one team, in a post-season, is three. (But, I could be wrong.) These had at least 3 each:

           
      Rk    Tm Year
      1    NYY 1996
      2    NYM 1986
      3    MIN 1991
      4    FLA 2003
      5    BOS 2004

      Whatever happened to that A.L. 12:59 AM curfew rule?

      Nice stat on TBS: Yankees have never won a post-season game where they trailed by 4+ runs in the 9th.

      Tonight/this morning would be a nice time to kill that one.

      Heading to the 12th. Major props to the fans still there in the Stadium, BTW.

      Phelps facing Cabrera or Fielder in this game scares me.

      And, whomever is going to lose this game, man, is that time going to be pissed.

      God, I am tired.
      My son played a triple-header today – Games at 9,11 and 3.
      And, we had a late night with Game 5.
      Now, this one…
      I need sleep!

      Darling is right. The smiling fool Swisher needs to make that play.

    9. October 14th, 2012 | 12:48 am

      This Jeter thing looks REALLY bad. He doesn’t react like that, usually.

      Guess this means A-Rod gets to play all the time now…

      This inning is a friggin nightmare.

      What was Girardi thinking putting Phelps in there? Not to be over dramatic but losing this game, losing Jeter and facing Verlander on Tuesday does NOT bode well at all for this series.

      I think I’ve seen enough of Phelps in this post-season.

      Not sure who was left in the pen but I agree with you.

      It was Phelps or Joba, I think. That’s all that was left in the pen.

      Tough spot for the rookie.
      Sorta speaks to Cashman’s bullpen. The rookie Phelps and the rum pot Lowe should not be on a post-season roster. But, who else did Cashman give them to chose from?

      The bullpen is fine (well, I will except Lowe from that remark.) It’s the “hitting.”

      Either him or Joba. That’s all that was left.

      And the rookie Smyly? He got the job done. That speaks to Dombrowski’s pen.

      Is Joba’s elbow still swollen?

      Evan, the same pen that has relief “aces” Benoit, who they should’ve crushed and just missed on doing so, and Valverde, who they did crush?

      While I can appreciate the Ibanez HR’s I’d rather see a 4-4 day from someone, so that the Yankees aren’t in a position to need those HR’s.
