ALDS Game III Recap: Rogers=Magnificent

Say what you want. Yes, the Yankees had base runners, but the Roaster pitched a masterful game.

  • It was good. He got the K’s when he needed the K’s, and the Yanks never scratched out those runs..

  • Let’s not get hysterical. Rogers took advantage of a team that can’t hit for s@#$ right now. We had baserunners every single inning except for the 9th (against the other “immortal” and “unhittable” Todd Jones–the only ‘closer’ with an almost 4 era).
    Our hitting is terrible.

  • Friggin crybabies.
    You have the greatest lineup in the history of the world! You could annex Poland with those hitters!

  • He was on. I really was afraid for the Tigers: every single stat you could think of pointed to Rogers giving up 9 runs and hitting the showers by the 3rd inning. This afternoon’s pitching “duel” between a slumping Bonderman and the definition of mediocre Jaret Wright should be…interesting.

  • You know, it never failed. All throughout the Red Sox season, every game touted beforehand as a “pitching duel” turned into a blowout (Beckett, Wakefield). And every game where people were concerned that our starter was going to be shoddy, he blew them away (Snyder, Tavarez).
    It goes to show you that you never know.

  • Amazing effort by Rogers. I was accused of trying to jinx the Yankees by touting how bad I think Rogers is (I was!), but it wasn’t entirely that. I really did think Rogers would crumble last night, and he completely shocked me. I was hoping he’d defy my prediction, but did not expect him to. I was wrong, utterly.
    I still think the Yanks can win this series, and by a big differential; the lineup still remains scary, even if it’s not hitting at the moment.

  • …if the yanks lose this series it will be their most disappointing choke of all time…for all of leyand’s huffing and puffing about the tigers belonging there, the yanks have the better overall team…the tigers had been cool as cucumber, and the yanks had been hot…kenny rogers must have made a deal with the devil this time around, and the yanks vulnerable pitching, and lack of clutch hitting is being exposed…

  • Uh, I’m not sure how anything tops 2004, but this would be right up there. It really depends upon who shows up tonight. Any odds on A-Rod’s line tonight?

  • “Any odds on A-Rod’s line tonight?”
    Most likely another o-fer.
    I’m amazed that there seems to be no bottom to the post-season pit this guy is falling deeper and deeper into. In my experience, when really talented people, regardless of profession, have an awful stretch, there comes a time when they just say: “f**k it, I don’t care – take that you nasty mo**erf**kers!!”, and then things straighten out. It’s astounding that ARod hasn’t had that moment, after 3 years of diminishing returns in the playoffs and all the abuse he takes from fans…

  • …it tops 04 because the sox had a much better team than this year’s tigers…
