Lazy Gamer: Jays-Sox, Royals-Yanks

Yeah, I am being rather pathetic, but go ahead and comment away on both of tonight’s games (or anything else) in this thread if you wanna.

You know, gerbil is a lazy SOB. Which is sad, because you think he would be motivated what that his parents didn’t eat him.

I doubt fans of either of this site’s namesake franchises will remember tonight’s games fondly. Buchholz and the bullpen let the Jays set their season record for HRs in a game and the Yankees are down to the Royals. Yuck.

Forget these games – the game in Detroit was a nail-biter until the bottom of the 8th here with Guerrier giving up an insurance run to the Tigers. It’s 6-4 now. Twins still have a fighter’s chance in the 9th though after clawing 4 runs off Verlander (who threw 129 pitches with sick movement and velocity) it is disappointing to have to get a man on just to have a chance.

Error brings tying run to the plate in Detroit with 0 out in the 9th. This has been a great day of tense baseball in Motown

Wow, did Papelbon really hit Lind for hitting 3 HRs tonight? First pitch up and in, certainly looks like it.
He really is one of the douchiest players in the game.

ha ha sf….don’t matter does it?…i’ve never understood the backin’ in argument…come on, you guys won 91 and counting…ya didn’t back into anything…
remy just lost any credibility he may ever have had by saying that wasn’t intentional…nice try jer

Kyle Farnsworth blows the save in NY while Youkilis watches strike 3 to end the 9th-inning rally at Fenway. Can Damon win the pie in securing the Yanks’ 50th come-from-behind win and 15th walk-off????
No, they IBB him instead. Junior hero time for Miranda.
It’s so nice being on the other side of Farnsworth in the late innings.

“…Nice, Robi. Now Hinske to third on the bad throw on the steal…..”
rooting for the yanks tonight gerb?… ;)

What the hell, why did Soria not pitch the 9th? What a wow. I guess it’s a meaningless game either way and they might be saving Soria for Greinke, after pitching 2 innings. Still…
Texas looks like they will lose to the Angels to clinch it for the Sox. How do they set up to celebrate?

Yanks up 10 in the loss column now. Remember when people were wondering if the sox could make a run at them just last week? That was a fast turn around…in any case, congrats to the SFs out there on making it to October again.

congratulations sox fans…hard-earned and well-earned…can’t say i wasn’t rooting against you though…and not just because it’s instinct…it’s also because, while i’m being told to fear the angels, it’s your team i fear more…oh well, best of luck, but please lose in the first round…

this thread should be titled “backin’ in”
Truer words were never spoken! Five game losing streak aside, I feel good about our chances.
Now we have to wait an entire week before playoff baseball. Ugh.

Congratulations sox fans. A strange up and down season but the end result is where you want to be and you have to be pleased with the continued emergence of Lester and Buccholz. And I’m not fooled for a moment by the collective rope-a-dope your team is pulling over the past week.
Hope Beckett et al get healthy so when the Yankees beat them in the ALCS there will be no excuses! (jk)

How pissed is everyone going to be when the Halos are playing the Tigres in the ALCS…
It could happen.

Krueg- I think MLB, ESPN, and Fox would be most pissed of all.
I’d hate to see the ratings gulf between a NY-Boston series and a Halos-Tigers one.
Anyway, now that NY and Boston are both officially in, I suppose I have to start bracing myself and stockpiling blood pressure medication just in case they do meet in the ALCS. Those series are never good for my heart.

Remember when that happened in 2005, when it was White Sox vs Halos? Ratings were atrocious.
I don’t know if I could survive another Yanks-Sox ALCS. There’s only so much a man can take.

OHH, the worst part of all: my girlfriend and I are celebrating our 4-year anniversary October 16-18, so I will miss the first two games of the ALCS. I almost hope the Sox get bumped in the first round, cause there’s no way in hell I’m missing those two games.

Yeah RMD, it’s like the networks are trying to will a Yankees vs Sox ALCs…they constantly talk about it. Bastards and their jinxes!!!

Can I say that I really don’t want to see a Sox-Yanks ALCS? I enjoy Red Sox-Yankees games far less than other Red Sox games. I mean, if the choice is between that and the Sox being kicked out of the first round, then I’ll obviously choose the former, but these games just do not make me a pleasant person while they’re ongoing, or afterward, if the Sox lose.
