Garcia faces the Mariners, who send King Felix to the mound as the Ichiro farewell tour continues. Comment away.
I’ve been hard on ARod lately and you guys made me feel kinda bad about it…
SO, I have my #13 on tonight and I’m going to try and be nicer to ARod.
Is there anything more infuriating?
I think I might not watch this one…
Felix vs Freddie?
I don’t feel like being pissed off tonight.
2-5 roadtrip? At best? Vomit.
What the hell King Felix. Jeter and ARod plunked hard – ARod out of the game and not looking good at all. Freddy pitched pretty well tonight frankly – 3 runs in 7 innings is fine for the #5 starter, even against Seattle. But Hernandez has been on. And now he is wild as hell. Finally gets pulled. Make the pen pay Cano…
Damn. Jeter should have scored but had to hold up to see if Cano’s shot cleared the infield. Bases loaded, 1 out, hot-hitting Teixeira up. Please let my late night be worth something…
Teixeira absolutely smashes a line drive right at the CF. Damn. Sac brings in Jeter, but that could have been so much better. 2 outs, Ibanez up. Why no Jones facing the lefty???
Almost hits Ibanez in the head. I’m sorry. I don’t care if none of these three pitches was intentional, someone on the Mariners needs to get plunked.
Bases loaded twice in the game.
ZERO clutch hitting on this team. None.
Ibanez Ks. So frustrating. The Mariners got lucky as hell on the Teix hit. I’ll be surprised and disappointed if Jaso doesn’t get a fastball in the ribs the next time he comes up.
Freddy out after getting one out in the 8th. All around a good game. Let down by the offense, which had both Felix and the pen against the wall in the 7th and 8th but only got one run out of it.
The cheering while ARod was down was the very definition of class…
I thought people up there were cool???
Yep, Freddie was good tonight.
Pitching is not our problem, a completely one dimensional offense is…
We’ve seen this movie before IH. The last two years…
This trip is a fucking disaster.
All that momentum, gone.
We need Joba back…the bullpen has been shit lately.
Walk the fucking bases loaded in a 1-run game…against the soft-hitting garbage Semen.
I cannot believe I stayed up for this bullshit.
This is just the Mariners’ night. Loan induces the weakest swing I’ve ever seen on a 3-2 bases loaded pitch and it rolls perfectly slowly up the 3rd base line. RBI and everyone safe. Forget this.
0-38 when trailing after 8?
Pretty sure that’s the record now…
wow. that’s a rough stat.
They plunked Jeter, Ichiro, and A-Rod, knocking A-Rod out of at least this game and likely more from the looks of it. This road trip is a freaking disaster. Bringing Ichiro home with them is the lone bright spot of an otherwise dismal final west coast swing of the season.
Martin stood like a statue as three breaking balls drop into the strike zone. Fitting. 1-6 so far. Finish this trip tomorrow with some pride and limp home fast please.
Am I wrong in thinking 0-38 trailing after 8 is pretty typical? Maybe for a great team you “expect” 2 wins or something, but there’s enough statistical variation that going 0-fer in that situation isn’t really THAT bad.
King Felix broke Alex’s hand. He’s on the DL. For all the bashing of A-Rod we do, he was heating up – hitting .315 in July. Lovely roadtrip this has been.
It is that bad IH, especially when all 5 loses on this road trip were 1 or 2 runs against terrible teams…
I hate to say this, but I don’t think we’ll miss ARod. Not that I want to see anyone get hurt but I’m not that devastated by this. Not like he was driving in many runs or anything in the 3 or 4 hole.
I guess we’re going to see now. I have to think he’s out a month with a broken hand.
Meredith Marakovits @M_Marakovits
Eric Chavez just said he broke same bone… Took him 8 weeks to get back … Said this injury really hurts but we’ll find away
That would be the season then basically.
PS I’m implying the Yanks are a great team, y’all. .600 baseball and all.
Did you know that every AL East team except the Yankees (4-6) has gone 5-5 in the last 10 games? In 10 games, the AL East has gained a single game on the Yankees, 7 GA. It’s true that even rooting for a good baseball team sometimes isn’t that fun. You stress just as much over the horrible losses and endure bad stretches of play. Still, I do envy y’all…very much.
Yeah Devine, the ALEast has not put on much of a show lately. The more baseball I watch this season the more I think LAA and Texas are a step above everyone else.
And krueg, I disagree about A-Rod. I know we bash him, and I do think he should be batting more like #5 or 6 than #4, but I think they’ll miss his bat. He was really getting hot lately.
