Just Before the Stroke of Midnight: Yanks-Tigers ALCS Gamer IV

Update: The Yankees lineup hasn’t changed since last night, so let’s just use this post for Thursday’s Game IV.

Down three to nil, the Yankees are staring at a bleak winter, except all the guys that live in Florida, who might have standby tee times Friday. C.C. gets his first start of the series and perhaps last of the season against the Tigers, who send Max Scherzer.

If nothing else, I hope it is a good game, worth remembering through the dreary and wistful “R” months. Lineups follow, comment away.

  • So ARod is definitely gone now, right??? I mean no way there is any way he is back with us next year, not after this humiliation.

    And getting phone numbers dickhead? Really???

    Cano = Baby ARod?

  • 2 on and 2-out for Swisher.

    Um.

  • To be fair…he K’d on yet another BS called strike in the other batter’s box.

    Never-the-less. Failure.

  • CC is back to struggling with both command and velocity.

    Getting swept.

    On the one hand I’m happy we won the East and got out of the first round…losing to the O’s would have been fucking humiliating.

    But to go down like this? Without so much as a fight? It really says a lot about the makeup of the players on this team right now.

    Disgusting.

  • OK…even Tex is fucking blowing grounders now left and right????

    There is no explanation for this fucking nose dive.

  • So they just showed a stat…

    Tigers 3-for-4 w/RISP
    Yankees 3-for-20 w/RISP

    In the ALCS.

    We are down 0-3 in the series and they have only had 4 opportunities w/RISP in 3+ games.

    What a monumental waste of great pitching.

    Oh, and they just scored another run.

    Game. Set. Match.

    See you guys next season.

  • Talk about a season of epic collapses:

    Red Sox complete stunning fall from grace over the course of the full season.

    Rangers complete stunning late-season collapse and allow the A’s to snatchh the division title in game 162.

    Yankees turn in one of the all-time worst batting performances in playoff history and get swept out of the ALCS.

  • Yankees have no hits and 9 strikeouts in 5 innings. The odds on the going hitless all the way are extremely high. I believe the worst post-season team BA is .195 or something llikke that and the Yankees are quickly approaching that. At this point I want them to break that record. If you’re going to stink, might as well go all the way and do itt in epic unforgetttable fashion.

  • Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  • Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  • Hey there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours
    require a massive amount work? I’m completely new to blogging but
    I do write in my diary daily. I’d like to start
    a blog so I will be able to share my experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know
    if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
