The Enemy of My Enemy: Rangers-Yanks Gamer

Can both teams lose?

Comment about the cognitive dissonance for us Sox fans here.

  • Rather than frame it with cognitive dissonance, I prefer to think of the Yankees winning to be collateral damage for a Rangers loss. Let’s go unintended consequences!

  • I can never decide how to react to these kinds of situations. I always want the Yankees to lose, but I know it’s better for the Sox now if the Rangers lose. So if I’m scoreboard watching during the game, I always end up rooting for whichever team happens to be down at the moment. And, of course, that every game goes to extra innings.

  • FSP, you follow Thomas Aquinas in your logic: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/double-effect/
    Not sure who his team was, though. The Angels? Hey oh!

  • Well, seeing that SF created the gamer and the first 3 post are from SF’s…I’d say we’re golden!!!
    LET’S GO YANKEES!!! Help the Sox by blasting the Rags!!!
    Although Joba sucks on 4 days rest let alone 10 so he’s going to get rocked per usual. The bats are going to have to tee off on Mill-douche to pull off this one…

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • Well SW, Joba is slower than dogsh-t to the plate and Hip Hip has no arm…

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • Threatened but nothing…not good. Joba’s going to blow the lead in this inning because he is almost MEE-tre’ish. Dick.

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • Hip Hip throws a dude out AND Joba gets out of the inning without giving up a run??? What the hell is going on???

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Why the f-ck can’t Joba get the THIRD OUT????

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • Joba is f-cking pathetic. He is terrible. Get his sorry, fat ass back into the pen. He cannot hold a lead. 4-3 and yet ANOTHER 2 OUT, 2 STRIKE RBI!!!! YOU SUCK JOBA!!!!

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • Jeter is the man. Joba, unfortunately, is not. I don’t think Joba has it in him to handle odd-days off, unpredictable schedules, etc. I would be surprised if we got one more great start from him this year. On the other hand, I think he could be exceptional back in the pen. Then he can go back to the rotation in ’10 for the entire year.

    IronHorse August 25, 2009, 9:44 pm

    Marte coming in. It’s really over now. At least 2 runs coming up, EAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASY.

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 9:46 pm
  • He could go to the pen,help up Hughes somehow. Gaudin is not much better,but at least he’s got the experience.That counts a lot.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 25, 2009, 9:48 pm
  • No Marte…sweet. So basically Gaudin is better than Joba, why not start him? Hell, MEE-tre is even better than Joba at this point…

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • 2 OUT WALK AGAIN!!!! I am going to f-cking lose it…whatever I have left at this point anyway.

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 9:51 pm
  • Come on krueg,the Mitre is better no way ;). What happens in my view is Joba gets overconfident when he gets the 2 outs. Starts throwing offspeed,breaking balls,walks guys in and then the lack of experience kicks in,the pressure weighs in. In Mitre’s case, there’s no need of pressure,he throws meatballs right at you in any count no matter how many men on base. That might work in the NL not here.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 25, 2009, 9:54 pm
  • Well that’s the game. Young was batting .500 off Gaudin before that AB (with more than 30 ABs so not exactly a small sample size). Oh well.

  • Swisher lost that f-cking game, after Joba of course. Stupid f-cking bunt…just awful. All that for nothing. At least they came back, showed some balls but come on Swisher, seriously??? HUGE mistake…

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 11:02 pm
  • I wasn’t watching, krueg, but are you sure it was Swisher’s decision? That dumb bunt may have been Girardi’s call, no?

    stuck working August 25, 2009, 11:10 pm
  • It was his call…he just didn’t execute. It was pathetic. 1st and 2nd with no outs, Swisher to bunt? He obviously can’t so that may have been a bad call but ultimately Swisher f-cked it up.

    krueg reincarnate August 25, 2009, 11:13 pm

  • Horrible game. Great rally in the 9th ending with one horrendous play by Swisher and bad BABIP-luck for Melky. I’m going to the Burnett game Thurs with my brother. Hopefully they’ll be trying to string 2 wins together by then rather than avoid a sweep.

    IronHorse August 26, 2009, 1:02 am

  • Hope you’re right kr – though don’t drop his epic duel wih Beckett off the memory-banks too fast!
    Curious to see who is catching him. I figure it’s got to be Posada until they iron their communication out. It has gone on now for 3 straight games and is ridiculous.
    That would have been a sick come-back last night…

    IronHorse August 26, 2009, 12:38 pm
