    Its the second time around

    Friday, October 22, 2010, 6:09 PM [General]

    There have been key points in the Alcs where the Yankees have been in position to get control of the series.And both times Phil Hughes has been on the mound to pitch them in or out.Tonight is Hughes' second chance. There have been many Yankee hero's. Hughes has a chance to be a footnote or a stand out.
    Tonight, the Yankee batz have a second chance at a second starter. Last game the got a second shot at CJ Wilson and they got him. Now its Colby Lewis.Will the Yankees colder bats finally warm up in the Texas heat. Hello, Arod, Swisher, Berkman.
    It might be soggy in Arlington so the Yanks have to prove they are a good mudder.

    Tough to watch

    CC got clubbed. No clutch hitting. Now,its Hughes at 4pm in the heat. Or we wait for the hangman in NY. Either way CC put us in a big hole. It seems the Yanks are still in a lay off. Too bad they decided to contiinue sleeping through this game. I shut the freakin TV off after CC gave up the fifth run. Some dopey subway commercial is on. I can not stand to listen to that Ernie Jones guy. The guy knows very little about how to call abaseball game.I am sure they are playing him a lot so they want to get their money's worth out of him. He sounds or acts like a fish out of water. Wow the Yanks got on the scoreboard-  Cano drilled a SOLO  HR. Look at these box scores Jeter through Posada oh for 15!

    Do these guys have any guts. Its Gardner, Jeter and Swisher - 0h for seven so far - Wilson still pitchiing.- He just threw his 101st pitch. Gardner legs out a hit. Jeter looks clueless. Maybe he is done? Maybe not, he just doubled in Gardner. Its Wilson who is done. I tell ya Texas and its crowd thinks this game is over. Heck there are none out in the eighth with a runner on 2nd in a 5-2 ball game. Unless, their Darren Oliver comes in lights out we could have a game.

    One and one to Swish. What have these guys got? Three & one to. Great pitch. Three & two- Missed ball four- 1st & 2nd. Tex strike one - The tension growing. Way inside.- Three and one. Missed it foul it off - 3-2 again.Ball four again. Arod bases loaded no one out. washington will make a change - Its # 56 - Darren O'Day. To face Arod - Only one previous encounter Arod is 0-1- First pitch he drives in two- A screamer over third maskes it 5-4. O'day's day is done. Now, cano versus a lefty with runners on 1st &2nd  - No outs - Ahit here and the Yanks can grab the lead.

    Oh boy! Clay Rapada just called up.1st pitch tie game! 1st and third. Look who is coming to the mound. Its Washington- Two pitchers two pitches 3 runs - still no one out. Is going to bring in a righty- Derek Holland. A lefty

    Marcus Thames 1-2 bad swing gotta get this run in. a rocket by 1st just foul.gret stop by catcher. Another hit!! Yanks lead!!! 6-5  A broken bat to left. Posada ball one. Two and oh. Three and oh. Three and one. Three & two. 

    Deep to right - Cano goes to third on the out.

    Ganderson, 1st & third - 1 out. One and one. Tough pitch strike two. Ball, 2&2. Just missed d3-2. Struck out swinging.

    Gardner who started the inning.- one and one Holland is dealing. Two and one - Big pitch-- Grounds out -

    Yanks score five - Garner Jeter Swisher Texieira Arod Cano thames all reach bases safely before on out is registered. Thats seven batters in a row. 

    Now the game is in the hands of the 8th and 9th guys. 

    Wood is on the mound to face Kinsler.

    Ball two. Three and oh. Ball four. Tying run on base. Wood stunk in game three. Ball one. Finally strike one - one & one. he is going ! Two and one. Un believable! Yes they picked him off! 1 out. Two and two. Three and two-  swung at ball four. A good pitch foul ball.Good pitch spoiled. Jammed him grounds out to tex unassisted.

    Now batting, julio borbon oh and two. one and two. Wood is pitching better foul ball. Struck him out!

    We go the top of Ninth- Jeter Swisher and Texierira. We need more runs! In the ninth Texas will send up, Cantu andrus and young.

    Pitching for the Rangers is Derek Holland again. One and one. Molina behind the plate 2-1 to Jeter. He rips it over Hamilton's head for a leadoff double. Swisher Bunt? Foul ball. Get jeter  1-1 to swisher. Pops out on bunt attempt- horrible. Tex runner on second one out. Strike one - Big ab for tex 1-1 count. Molina and olland talk it over - 1-2 tex looks weak! 2-2 almost had him. Three and two.Popped it up to right. Two outs for Arod. Big insurance run out there. A lefty versus Arod - come on ! 1st pitch popped up!

    On to the ninth- The yanks will count on Mariano Rivera to get the 1st game of the best of seven. He has had trouble here recently in this spot. In this stadium. He did great against the Twins. by saving two games. He has had plenty of rest. He will face Cantu andrus and Young. Golston's in right.

    Pinch hiitter Mitch moreland. Base-hit. Runner on 1st. no one out. Andrus ball one and he does not look sharp. One and one. Showed bunt-  Strike two foul bunt off. 1-2  He bunted with 2 strikes. Runner on second.

    michael young good swing. quickly ahead 0-2 - come on Mo. Inside 1-2. Huge pitch. Posad and Mo know it. Watch the steal!  Just missed 2-2. Fouled back. This guy is tough. FFoul again. the ball seems tohave late movement Struck him out! 

    Hamilton and Mo--Oh boy! 1st pitch ground out to arod. The yankees Win! Awesome the gutty gritty Yanks!

    Just a few thoughts now that we know its Texas

    Wednesday, October 13, 2010, 8:15 AM [General]

    Cliff Lee and his army. Lets us assume we going to lose when  this cat pitches okay? That makes it imperative we win the first to in Texas. So when its Lee vs hughes we are going for 3 in a row. Texas has some starch in it pants. The batting order is a dead read swing from the heels group. If CC sticks with more off speed he my be able to shut them down. Winning that first game in this series is huge. 

    The Yanks have a lot of hitters that could and should do well vs Texas pitching. I have yet to see the odds for the series but I could see the Yanks as a slight favorite.

    The Rangers have collection of real tough hitters.The rolled sevens with Twin killing. If the pitching delivers they have great chance of winning.

    Called a talk show yesterday....

    Wednesday, October 6, 2010, 8:23 AM [General]

    I asked the host which team was the last to repeat as champions? His answer the Yankees. next question, what was their record for september and october of the regular season that year? He said i do not know but, I seem to remember not that good. I said you are right they were the same as the Yankees of this year 13-17. Well, if in 2000 they can win with a horrible record to close the season why not this year.

    Here is why because like in 2000 they had a host of clutch performers. End of story.

    I am shocked they are favorites. I mean the twins have got to win sometime. Heck, the way baseball is the new house usually carries you into world series. BTW the twins do have a new stadium!
