Neither of the AL games are over yet.
   402. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3940011)
CUBA GOODING CRAWFORD!!!
   403. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3940012)
Crawford!
And he actually looked fast running that one out!
   404. Jay Seaver Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3940013)
Hey, check it out - Crawford being fast! And recovering from the brain fart! Our luck really may be turning around!
   405. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3940014)
Yay Carl!
   406. Joel W Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3940015)
Carl has his wheels!
   407. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3940017)
Jesus.


Nope, Girardi hasn't pinch hit him yet.
   408. Joel W Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3940019)
I'll believe our luck has turned around when the Yankees don't hit to triple plays in Tampa.
   409. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3940018)
Time Bogar ####### sent him on that. Look at the replay. Bogar ####### told Crawford to try and score there. WHAT A ####### AWFUL 3B COACH HOLY ####
   410. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3940020)
Nice pitching, Charm City.
   411. Textbook Editor Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940022)
MARCO!
   412. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940021)
Tim Byrdak is one sorry-ass looking motherfracker without his baseball cap, BTW.
   413. Jay Seaver Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940023)
MARCO!


(SCUTARO!)
   414. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940024)
Finally saw the triple play. Martin hit the ball to the third base bag (which I guess he would have had to). It really looks like he tried to do it because it was just so perfectly hit to the bag.

Scutaro has 6 bases tonight.
   415. Famous Original Joe C Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940025)
That helps.
   416. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:09 AM (#3940026)
Yay Marco!
   417. ray james Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:10 AM (#3940027)
Wow. That was unexpected.
   418. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:10 AM (#3940028)
Rays strand runners at the corners in the 6th. Still 3-2 Yanks.
   419. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:10 AM (#3940029)
Now the Sox-O's game is done.

Go Rays. I demand 163, and if not 163, I want them tied going into the last day of the season.
   420. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:11 AM (#3940030)
Hitting a HR after a triple makes the triple seem like a waste of effort. But that's just me.
   421. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:11 AM (#3940031)
How was the doc, overall, Gamingboy?
   422. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:11 AM (#3940032)
Crawford looks nothing like Cuba Gooding. And he was really trucking on that.

I'm going to cry if the Yankees lose, though, after hitting into a triple play. They would never do that when I wanted them to! :)
   423. Jay Seaver Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940033)
It shocks me to say it, but Scutaro's option for next year being picked up has to be a lock, doesn't it?
   424. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940034)
TB desperately needs a rally. But they're probably facing Soriano, Robertson and Rivera, so that's tough.
   425. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940035)
Or is it still going on? I have no idea how long these things are.

If there is some comeuppance for any of the awful humans in the aftermatch, I might be able to watch it.
   426. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940036)
The Rays can't get guys home. Just failed to get a guy home from third with two out. Not a huge failing, but they need some hits to pull out a win here.
   427. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940037)
BELIEVE!!
   428. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:12 AM (#3940038)
Go Rays. I demand 163, and if not 163, I want them tied going into the last day of the season.


A Sox win today and a Rays loss is going to be the most likely way to get to 163, because the Yankees aren't playing a single MLB pitcher tomorrow.
   429. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:13 AM (#3940040)
It's still going on, Lassus. A 2-hourer. They are now talking about the day after, when his name got out.
   430. NTNgod Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:13 AM (#3940041)
because the Yankees aren't playing a single MLB pitcher tomorrow.

Or batter. It was Regulars night tonight, Scrub Squad tomorrow.
   431. Textbook Editor Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:14 AM (#3940043)
Aceves for the bottom of the 6th? Or do you save some bullets for tomorrow (when he'd be working on his 4th day in a row)?
   432. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:14 AM (#3940044)
crap. Reyes flied out, probably going for #3.
   433. Famous Original Joe C Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:14 AM (#3940046)
It shocks me to say it, but Scutaro's option for next year being picked up has to be a lock, doesn't it?

Sure does. I'll take the occasional brainfart and mediocre D if he can approach .297/.358/.421 again.
   434. Knock on any Iorg Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:14 AM (#3940045)
Jake McGee pitching for the Rays now, so might as well just add 4 runs for the Yankees now.
   435. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:14 AM (#3940047)
If Boston can get to twelve runs they just might win this game.
   436. Famous Original Joe C Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:15 AM (#3940050)
Cards rally to 5-4.
   437. NTNgod Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:15 AM (#3940051)
NL Batting update

Both Braun and Reyes made outs moments ago.

Reyes 179 H/ 534 AB .3352059 (2-3)
Braun 187 H/ 559 AB .3345259 (1-2)
   438. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:16 AM (#3940052)
Jake McGee pitching for the Rays now, so might as well just add 4 runs for the Yankees now.


McGee is not really that bad. Are you thinking of Howell?
   439. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:16 AM (#3940053)
A Sox win today and a Rays loss is going to be the most likely way to get to 163, because the Yankees aren't playing a single MLB pitcher tomorrow.


Almost true, Hughes is going to pitch in relief tomorrow.

Or batter. It was Regulars night tonight, Scrub Squad tomorrow.


I don't think that's the case. I'm willing to bet that Girardi will start his regular lineup tomorrow.

They won't be in the game after the 6th, but they'll start ...
   440. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:16 AM (#3940054)
A Sox win today and a Rays loss is going to be the most likely way to get to 163, because the Yankees aren't playing a single MLB pitcher tomorrow.



That seems like a breach in etiquette, doesn't it? I remember other managers saying they felt obligated to play suck games 'straight.' Not that I'd expect them to go for matchups out of the pen or anything like that.

Whatever the case, the Sox really did have some bad timing with when they faced the Yankees. The Rays got the post-clinch "play the scrubs" game AND got the entire 'rest up for the playoffs' series. The Sox got the in-between games where the Yankees mostly tried.
   441. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:16 AM (#3940055)
Cards rally to 5-4.


!!!
   442. NTNgod Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:16 AM (#3940056)
Reyes is actually 2-4 (2 HRs)
   443. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:17 AM (#3940059)
Man, that is a close batting race.
   444. Fly should without a doubt be number !!!!! Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:17 AM (#3940060)
Time Bogar ####### sent him on that. Look at the replay. Bogar ####### told Crawford to try and score there. WHAT A ####### AWFUL 3B COACH HOLY ####

At least he didn't tackle him like on Monday.
   445. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:17 AM (#3940061)
McGee has the Papelbon rectum-mouth thing going.
   446. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:17 AM (#3940062)
That seems like a breach in etiquette, doesn't it? I remember other managers saying they felt obligated to play suck games 'straight.' Not that I'd expect them to go for matchups out of the pen or anything like that.


Girardi has openly said that none of the pitchers on the playoff roster are pitching Wednesday (with the possible exception of Hughes).
   447. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:18 AM (#3940064)
Whatever the case, the Sox really did have some bad timing with when they faced the Yankees. The Rays got the post-clinch "play the scrubs" game AND got the entire 'rest up for the playoffs' series. The Sox got the in-between games where the Yankees mostly tried.

Well, if Boston can't beat a team that "mostly tried" then they really don't deserve to be in the playoffs anyway.
   448. NTNgod Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:18 AM (#3940065)
Man, that is a close batting race.


Of course, the Brewers were so offended by Braun actually making an out that Fielder and Weeks went back-to-back, including Weeks hitting one of the longest HRs I've ever seen hit to LF at Miller (off the Stadium Club glass)
   449. Fly should without a doubt be number !!!!! Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3940066)
No way the Sox are winning this. No way in hell.
   450. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3940067)
Balls are just flying out tonight.
   451. Lassus Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3940068)
O's not done, it seems.
   452. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3940069)
Now talking about Game 7 and how basically nobody remembers it in comparison to Game 6.
   453. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3940070)
Give it right back, give it right back, give it right back!
   454. Knock on any Iorg Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:20 AM (#3940072)
Mister...Mister Jonnnnnnnnnnes...
   455. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:20 AM (#3940073)
Who's looking forward to Bard?
   456. Jay Seaver Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:21 AM (#3940074)
Did Orsillo just say that was Reynolds's 394th strikeout?
   457. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:21 AM (#3940076)
Aceves is pretty unflappable. Except for that 1 inning where he walked 244 people, nothing seems to get him flustered.

Haven't seen much of this game--how's Lavernway look?
   458. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:21 AM (#3940077)
Looking like the Cardinals might just take the lead.
   459. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:22 AM (#3940078)
Then again they are using Corey Patterson in this spot.
   460. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:22 AM (#3940079)
Reynolds just moved into a tie for 10th-most Ks in a season. (He owns #1, #2 and #3 already.)
   461. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:23 AM (#3940080)
I totally forgot the crazy-ass stuff they did with the ball.
   462. ray james Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:23 AM (#3940081)
Lavarnway's played well, Darren. He's homered, thrown out a base stealer and and had some more RBI's taken away from him by a magnificent diving catch by markakis.\
   463. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:24 AM (#3940082)
Haven't seen much of this game--how's Lavernway look?


He looks fine behind the plate, and he threw out the only guy who tried to steal (Jones at third). And he hit a ####### bomb for a 3 run homer on a full count.
   464. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:25 AM (#3940083)
And he had a 3-run blooper! Oh no, wait.

I actually meant his catching specifically.
   465. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:25 AM (#3940084)
Anyone know why Holliday is out of the Cards game after 1 PA?
   466. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:26 AM (#3940085)
I really want Ortiz to get #30.
   467. charityslave is thinking about baseball Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:26 AM (#3940087)
Casey Kotchman taken to hospital for chest pain and tightness. I hope everything's okay there. Report said it was "precautionary".
   468. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:27 AM (#3940088)
Ha, look at that line--14-0 against the Orioles! Why he's invincible!
   469. NTNgod Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:27 AM (#3940089)
Anyone know why Holliday is out of the Cards game after 1 PA?

Hand injury flared up again.
   470. charityslave is thinking about baseball Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:27 AM (#3940090)
Matt Holliday was pulled from Tuesday's game in the third inning after aggravating his right middle finger injury according to Rotoworld. Unkown severity.
   471. Dan Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3940092)
Soriano's blowing it in St. Pete.
   472. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3940091)
I hope so. The Kotchman v. Laffey subplot has been very enjoyable.
   473. ray james Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3940093)
So, Ellsbury has a 9.7 WAR in Fangraphs. That homer should put him in double figures, no?
   474. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3940094)
He went to the DR to talk to Alou. And, yes, he shook his hand.
   475. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3940095)
Soriano is so bad at pitching.
   476. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940096)
Matt Holliday was pulled from Tuesday's game in the third inning after aggravating his right middle finger injury according to Rotoworld. Unkown severity.


Glad we aren't stuck with that chump and instead have a guy who made a great catch and hit a triple!
   477. Knock on any Iorg Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940097)
5-4 Rays on the Matt Joyce homer.
   478. Spahn Insane Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940098)
3-run jack for Joyce, 5-3 Rays
   479. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940099)
3 run HR for Matt Joyce. 5-3, Rays
   480. Gamingboy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940100)
5-4 Rays on the Matt Joyce homer.


HUZZAH, PENNANT RACE FEVER! PENNANT RACE FEVER LIVES!
   481. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3940101)
Good news for Yankee fans: Tampa homers, 5-3 Rays
Bad news for Yankee fans: Tampa homers, 5-3 Rays
Worse news for Yankee fans: Soriano is ####### useless
   482. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940102)
Ugh.

SoRoMo just broke down ... in the So portion, no less.

Fugh.
   483. Misirlou was a Buddhist prodigy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940103)
Yep, good thing the Yanks put Soriano in. No way the Rays can come back now.
   484. Knock on any Iorg Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940104)
I take back that extra Yankees run.
   485. Famous Original Joe C Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940105)
Man, #### the Yankees.
   486. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940106)
Worse news for Yankee fans: Soriano is ####### useless

Hey, maybe he will opt out by mistake!
   487. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940107)
And the Cardinals tie it up as well
   488. Textbook Editor Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940108)
Now talking about Game 7 and how basically nobody remembers it in comparison to Game 6.


Wood hit a HR in Game 7, right? And they had a pretty comfortable lead, right?

Yeah, look at the 19,000 fans in St. Pete. Amazing!
   489. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940109)
Yankees are blowing it. Well, what a shock. Too good to be true that the Yankee pen could hold a lead.
   490. charityslave is thinking about baseball Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:30 AM (#3940110)
10 war is big boy territory...
   491. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940111)
Matt Joyce, you beautiful bastard!
   492. Cowboy Popup Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940113)
It's weird not caring that Soriano did that. I'm worried it's a preview of what's going to happen when I do care and that is unsettling.
   493. Chip Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940115)
Embedded Ray serves it up.
   494. Knock on any Iorg Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940116)
Too good to be true that the Yankee pen could hold a lead.

Soriano served up a cookie to his old buddies. What are friends for?
   495. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940117)
Cards tied it, 5-5
   496. Darren Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:31 AM (#3940118)
Gamingboy, if you can't tell you're trolling here, I don't know what to tell you.
   497. Tom Cervo, backup catcher Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:32 AM (#3940119)
Joyce!!! Soriano keeps winning games for the Rays.
   498. McCoy Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:32 AM (#3940120)
Could you imagine how crazy Fenway would be right now or Wrigley or in St. Louis if Matt Joyce played for their home team and their home team was one the pulling off this epic comeback. Instead we get it happening to the Rays and their 10 fans.
   499. Textbook Editor Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:32 AM (#3940121)
Aceves for the 7th would surely mean Bard goes 2 and Papelbon goes 2 tomorrow if needed, right?
   500. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: September 28, 2011 at 01:32 AM (#3940122)
CP, I don't think we'll see him pitching a lot of high leverage innings in the playoffs, unless we get extra innings.

I'd have Hughes and Wade ahead of him in the pecking order.
