Where were you while we were getting high…
K. 1 out.
Worst possible scenario.
K, then groundout…
0-2 after the top of the 1st.
Offense? Respond please.
Miggy robs Jeter of a double down the line…
It’s 3:20am and I can not pull another all-nighter. Gonna watch on mlb.tv (best invention ever for the traveling fan!) for another 20 or so and then crash. I’ll say a prayer for Ivan…
Tigers win the first inning.
Dream start for Detroit.
leadoff double. Ummm…………
BIG hold there kid. Come on offense. Take some pressure off him.
Tex doubles with 1 out…
Here we go with the bullshit strike zone again…
WTF did I walk into? I take the kids to the park and now this is happening?
0-2 after 2.
Nova out?!? What’s up with that? I know he gave up some hard hits, but was he that off?? Is he hurt?? Curious. We need you now Phranchise.
Hughes in for the 3rd…
K. 1 out.
K. 2 outs.
Phil is peppering the strike zone with balls…this umpire is sickening. Again.
Playing against Detroit and the ump. Again.
F’ing Delmon Young is on fire.
Great job Hughes!!!
Come on bottom of the lineup. You guys have been awesome.
Gardner singles with 1 out…
Come on Jeter. We need something here…
OK, to be fair the ump is missing calls for them too…
“The pitch down is the strike”
Yeah. Except for the chest high 1 foot off the plate pitch to Swisher that was called a strike…
Gardner will be going. Come on Curtis
1st and 2nd. 2 outs.
BS called strike. Not even close.
2-1 instead of 3-0.
That was the pitch to rip.
3 innings of nothing.
What the hell? Another pitcher?
Leadoff walk by ARod…
CC warming in the pen…
Can he hit?
Tex. Pops out. 1 out.
1st and 2nd with 1 out…

Strike one in the other batters box…
Single loads the bases for Muscle…
Come on Russell. You got this dude.
Pops out to the infield…2 outs.
That was really, really bad.
I’m not going to say anything else.
I am finding it very difficult to stay positive.
At this rate Mo is going to pitch in the 7th.
The time is NOW.
3 reasons we lost this series:
Or as they should be known, the Playoff Rally-Killing Black Hole.
Anger. Depression. Exhaustion. I can’t watch any more – it’s to freaking late here.
These games where the offense is just anemic (there were SEVERAL meatballs down the pipe from Fister that they just watched go by) are so depressing. Oh well. I gotta sleep. Hope I wake up to a pleasant surprise, but am not expecting it at this rate. If they lose at least I will sleep through a Valverde vistory dance in Yankee stadium, which would make me blow my brains out. Good night.
I’m fucking disgusted right now.
Just not meant to be, I guess. Plenty of opportunities, outscored them in the series, but not clutch.
What do you know, I pulled the all-nighter anyway. This should be a fun day. Grumpy, depressed, sleep-deprived is a winning combination. Yanks gave us a great year from start to finish. No one really thought they were going to go very far. We can focus on the (rancid) meat of the order this post-season or the predictably mediocre pitching, but try not to lose sight of how good we had it this year. See you in spring training!
“3 reasons we lost this series”
I give A-Rod a pass because he was clearly playing hurt. The real question is whether the team should have just DLed him and called it a season.
Tex and Swish are real reasons for concern. But the emphasis on Martin is going to get old fast next year. It’s going to be Girardi vs. Jorge all over again. The best hope is that Martin pulls a Fernandez in Spring Training. Even then though, Girardi doesn’t seem above a Mathis (Romine) over Napoli (Montero), most especially because he and Scioscia still think they were difference makers as players.
I feel good about where this organization is at. They still make dumb mistakes with contracts (A-Rod, Teixeira, LOOGYs) but overall they’re moving in the right direction. Unlike a certain other team ;)
