Whew. No John Sterling like cheer after the final out for me, because that will only be justified if they do the same thing 24 hours from now.

This will teach me to shut off the VCR and decide it wasn't worth it to keep taping after the Top of the 6th!

Angels just didn't execute today. They should have had that game. Figgins botched that play at the plate, a clean throw would have had him.

Also, Guerrero should have hit the cut off man, no way Posada advances to 3rd then, and he wasn't going to throw Cano out at the plate, too fast of a runner.

*sigh*...it cost them the game but hopefully not the series.

White Sox have the clear advantage in the ALCS. Whoever wins this series will have had to fly to anaheim tonight then fly to chicago after tomorrow nights game.

Well, we could both say then that both of us should have had a game our team didn't win. I would say the same of Game 2 for the Yankees and you can do that with this if you like. So far, the big surprise with me is Al Leiter coming up with the big outs in key situations.

Tomorrow, the bullpen's will be emptied out in rapid order at the first sign of trouble. May the best team win.

yeah Al Leiter goes from FOX broadcaster the past couple postseasons to being able to pitch and get people out...crazy.

Leiter is the last active player left in all of baseball who can claim to have once played for Billy Martin (1988). I can remember the night he made his ML debut with the Yankees. It'd be nice to see him get a ring as a Yankee just because of that connection to a very distant era of Yankee history.

I'll try to be more relaxed than I was last night where I shut the VCR off in the 6th inning. Got myself mentally prepared for good times watching the DVD of Game 3 of the 98 WS (on the wonderful new DVD set devoted to the Yankees 96-01 years of greatness), and hopefully that will carry over!

No, it's not crazy, I believe Leiter has now probably found his niche'. He was pressing in Florida, and although he will at his age never be a bonifide #2 starter again, he can, with his experience be helpful. He is a competitor. He wore out his welcome with the Mets for various reasons, but I believe he has something left in the tank for at least another season.

Now, before the big Yankee game tonight, I would be remiss since this IS a "sort of" Mets topic, not to take a moment to say a genuine "thank you" to Mike Piazza.
I wish him the best, he gave Mets fans much to cheer about in his years with the team, and will be a future Hall of Famer. I wish we had him 5 years earlier!

Bartolo always wins after a loss. He's the stopper.

Tonight should be a close game. smile

Well, your stopper clearly wasn't up to pitching a full game tonight. This happened to the Yankees two years ago when Wells came out of a WS game and it burned them. Be interesting to see what this means as far as the tone for the rest of the game goes.

Santana was getitng squeezed to death by home plate umpire Joe West, when he didn't get the pitches he got less confident and it went too hell. He's lucky to get out of there with only 2 runs scoring...A-Rod has looked pathetic this series...but it won't even matter if the angels dont start hitting.

Ahhh, "Country Joe" West.

wow...all 3 of those strikes on Figgins were questionable. Santana better get those now.


sheffield...and crosby....next time call it.

Just when I thought I'd seen the Yankees come up with every dumb way to blow a playoff game last year, they come up with a new one.

I don't even think I can watch anymore after that. That just had all the makings of the play that kills your season once and for all.

Joe West is pissing me off.

That at bat with Cano......those balls low and outside were called strikes, but they were called balls on the previous batter. I wish this guy would just have a consistent strike zone for BOTH sides. and not make it up as he goes along.

Talk about inconsistent.

I would say at this point, you've got no reason to be pissed off. I am now tuning out and will just follow the action on-line only for now since my system can't take watching another Yankee choke of the first order. Because that is what it is when you see two outfielders fail to do one of the most fundamentally simple things in baseball.

I hope the Yankees have the same attitude. This is by no means over. Its only the 3rd inning!!!

You have to have a sense of whether this team is capable of a comeback given their general character. And this bunch of Yankees have yet to demonstrate that with me. I'll be glad to be proved wrong on that point, but the tone of this game has just not been good.
