    I know it was against the Yankees B-team in the field and the bottom end of New York’s bullpen. But, really, coming back from 7-0 in the 8th to get within a run…and then that Johnson homer with two outs and two strikes in the ninth?

    That’s just crazy…fairy tale stuff.

    After that, to be candid, I was just hoping that Scott Proctor would serve up BP fastballs in the tenth inning and get the game over with…it means nothing to the Yankees…and better to get it done, shower, hit the road and get out of town…since you have to start the LDS on Friday.

      Invariably, by ending the season on a Wednesday night, MLB had the sports marquee all to itself rather that ending on a Sunday going up against a full NFL schedule.

      And they ended up with one of the most dramatic nights in the sport’s history.

      For once, baseball got it right.

      Proctor did his part… The only part of the park where that ball would’ve gone out. Very Jeff Weaver-ish

      Lets just hope it doesn’t come back and cost the Yanks if the Rays beat them out in the postseason….I doubt it but you never know. Then you will all be singing a different tune. Its still sweet to see the Sox choke like that and then right after see the meatball that Proctor gives up. Was it just me or when Ayala was in there was he just not even caring and just throwing the ball BP style…he was rushing throw his motion and just laying it in there…That HR ball to Longoria was a meatball! I know these games meant nothing to Yanks but I just hate seeing them go into the playoffs losing 4 straight and in bad losses. Hope they can turn it on cause Tigers, Rays and Rangers are all playing well.

      Yanks have to play somebody. They’re all good teams. All of them can beat the Yankees; all of them can be beaten by the Yankees.

      I thought Proctor held on pretty well. The problem really was Girardi using 10 pitchers. Keep some reserve in the tank just in case.
