Delayed Gratification: Rays-Yanks Day/Night Part Day Gamer

“I absolutely love it. This is what you plot in the offseason, and you play the whole season to play meaningful games at this time of year. I know we’re not going to get any extra money for it, but we’ve already been in the playoffs for about 10 days. And it’s been fantastic.” — Joe Maddon

That’s all well and good for the Rays, but I won’t mind so much if the Yankees lock up their ticket to the post in game one of today’s double header. Comment away.

  • I don’t know what to do???
    Sweep them and we wrap up the East.
    Get swept and the Sox are in deep trouble.
    BUT…
    We can still finish off the Sox this weekend. I think I would prefer that but then we need to lose to the Rays.
    Losing is bad.
    My head is spinning.
    Just win I guess. Yeah, win them all.

    Swish chucks the bat on strike 3…hits Jorge. Whoops.

  • 2 solid innings for Hector.
    He has quietly done a great job this year. Maybe he fights for a spot in the rotation next year???

  • OK. Back to hell, I mean work, and the stupid Gamecast.
    Lame.

  • I swear this game feels like Girardi and the Yankees are trying to let the Rays win.

    Atheose - SF September 21, 2011, 3:51 pm
  • Are any Red Sox fans complaining about the size of Yankee Stadium after Nunez goes “deep” to tie the game? It kind of feels good to be needed.

    John - YF September 21, 2011, 4:02 pm
  • There you go Ath…Cano buries the Rays with a 2-run double.
    4-2.

  • Sandman. Game.
    Nice try Rays. Enjoy the offseason.

    krueg September 21, 2011, 4:30 pm
  • Have to give Girardi some love. He’s done a hell of a job this season. Injuries, weather, crazy schedule, garbage pitching staff…still about to wrap up home field and the East.
    Great job Joe.

  • CC looks like shit again.
    Hit after hit.

  • Tex.
    Horrible.

    krueg September 21, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • Evidently you just throw an off speed pitch to Jesus and he’s done.
    He’s become an easy out.
    2-1 after 6.

    Pathetic.
    At least the Sox lost.
    Win this and it’s Champagne Time!!!!!
    “BOSTON SUCKS” chant rings out at the Stadium…followed by a “LET’S GO YANKEES” chant…

  • CC…get it together man…please.
    Walks the bases loaded.
    He had what, 10 chances to get #20????

    Headed to the bottom of the 8th….

  • I have no idea if I should be rooting for the Yanks here right now.

    Nick-YF September 21, 2011, 10:38 pm
  • Swish PH double…
    It’s up to Tex.
    Which means we’re going to the 9th.
    Because he NEVER gets big hits.
    Except once in the ’09 ALDS.

    krueg September 21, 2011, 10:43 pm
  • 4 pitch walk…that was best case scenario.
    Cano. Bring it.

    krueg September 21, 2011, 10:46 pm
  • IBB.
    THEN HIP HIP JORGE WITH THE 2 RUN PINCH HIT SINGLE!!!!!!
    4-2!!!!!
    AL EAST TITLE IS IN REACH!!!!
    THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!!
    LET’S GO YANKEES!!!!!

    krueg September 21, 2011, 10:57 pm
  • Jorge gets the big hit that leads to the AL East. Quite an ending to his great career. Who knew that we would be Red Sox hero?

    Nick-YF September 21, 2011, 11:00 pm
  • SORIANO CLOSES IT OUT!!!!
    2011 AL EAST CHAMPS BABY!!!!

  • The Yankees…our saviors (maybe)…ready to crush us this weekend in revenge and send us reeling to Baltimore for some more?
    Still, if Sox can get in the way they appear to be getting in…BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP (that’s the Sox backing into the playoffs).

    Devine September 21, 2011, 11:16 pm
  • PS Congratulations, you guys. Can’t believe you made it to the top of the heap with the rotation you started with, but here we are, you’re the champs. Called it at the All-Star Break.

    Devine September 22, 2011, 1:36 am
  • Congrats, YFs. And thanks for keeping the Rays back ;-) Hopefully we’ll repay the kindness in the ALCS… though the likelihood of us getting that far is very slim.

    Atheose - SF September 22, 2011, 8:51 am
  • I don’t think we will dev…I bet Joe will spend the next week getting everyone rest and the rotation in order. I think we need 2 more wins to clinch homefield?
