I agree this is not the same team as Brosius, O'Neill etc.

but they got it done last night.


That being said, I don't think the Angels bullpen blows it 2 nights in a row...they are usually good. but anything can happen in a one game playoff.

They got it done last night, but not after having dug a hole caused by a mental miscue that is never supposed to happen to any halfway decent team.

Right now what I think of Joe West is unprintable.

Ervin Santana is dealing.

yankees barely escape a blown open game...lets see if they can tag Santana in the 7th.


...9 more outs...

Well, *if* they come back, Johnson has set himself up to be off the hook for Game 3.

It's a lot easier on the mind to just follow the pitch by pitch access on ESPN Gamecast then pace nervously back and forth in front of the set.

Okay, that's a start. But why oh why can't they ever get a homer with someone on base? I think all of their homers in this series have been solo ones.

because the angels pitch more carefully with runners on no doubt.


...Santana out, Escobar in...8 more outs...


Leaving em loaded last inning is starting to hurt.

If the final score is 5-3 with the margin being that bonehead collision, then Bubba Crosby will become the fall-guy as far as Steinbrenner is concerned. Sheffield has too big a contract so that's why he'd survive, but Crosby will be gone for sure.

Golden opportunity and the big guys in the lineup choked again.

whew escobar scary, but gets it done..6 more outs.

btw i dont think the final score will be 5-3. I think one of these teams is going to score again. Hopefully its the angels big grin

Yeah, if the final score is 5-4 then that only increases Crosby's chances of becoming the fall-guy.

you think he'll fire Torre?

 
 Posted:   Oct 11, 2005 - 12:24 AM   
 By:   Eric Paddon   (Member)

Nope. Torre has too much insurance built up over the years that George knows he could never do that. Joe put it best when he said, "George stuck with me in the early years, and now he's stuck with me." When Joe leaves it will be on his own initiative.

4 more outs...game is in the hand of Francisco Rodriguez now. If he has good stuff, game over...if he doesn't bring it...I won't be at Angel stadium friday and saturday night.

A-Rod and Sheffield, who have been post-season busts in both years with the team now have a chance to undo that. If not, then I will give my congratulations to the Angels for doing what they had to do.

And it figures that A-Rod would choke.

 
 
 Posted:   Oct 11, 2005 - 12:53 AM

A-Rod was jogging. Figgins had toruble getting that ball out of his glove.


and to quote Rory Markas JUST ANOTHER HALO VICTORY!

Congratulations to the Angels. And now, the only other thing I can say is GO WHITE SOX!!!!!!

You said it. After $-Rod erased Jeter's lead-off single with that double play, I was reminded of his bone-headed glove slap at first base in the ALCS last year. Speaking of which, I'm surprised that not much was made out of the Yankee collapse of 2004. More was made of how the Red Sox won rather than how the Yankees imploded. The greatest postseason collapse ever.

Anyway...this year reminds me of 2002, when the Twins-Angels were the AL finalists. Nice to see both "Evil Empires" eliminated in the first round. I'm usually a National Leaguer, but this year I'm rooting for whoever wins the AL penant. I've watched the ChiSox a lot this season and the Angels play with a lot of heart.
