Halos Shmalos! Yanks-Angels ALDS Game 1 Thread

Playoff time. Can you believe it? We’ve been in ’em every year over the last decade, and we always look at it as something of a mixed blessing (not that mixed, mind you): as much as we love the excitement and the edge-of-our seat drama, we also lament that during this most lovely time of the year we so often find ourselves, um, glued to the tv, and not enjoying the great outdoors and all that our very fair city has to offer. But so be it. We’d rather be in it. And winning. Which brings us to the matter at hand. The BoSox were blown out this afternoon, but fans of all persuasions will do well to remember that this didn’t stop them in last year’s LCS. Meanwhile, the Yanks go against their nemesis from the West Coast this evening. (And we thank AF for his excellent scouting report on those Angelenos.) Which is a long way of saying, this is your thread for all of tonight’s action—Go Yanks!

  • To Joe and Tim,
    Please, STFU. You two are loathed by fans of all teams. It would be in the best interests of everyone involved if you can keep your mouth shut, permanently.
    Thanks,
    Someone who can’t stand FOX baseball

  • Oh god.

  • Okay. So Buck is wrong on the MVP and the CY.

  • Giambi! Thank you. But A-Rod does not look comfortable. Watching him crumple was not a pleasant experience. That looked horrible, whatever it’s impact on his ribs. Whatever the case, we guess he’s going to be sleeping on his right side tonight.

  • Really though, are Buck/McCarver any worse than the other options — Berman/Sutcliffe…or Joe Morgan?

  • Buck and McC may not think it matters, but after 2 Colon is at 48 pitches. How many do they think he can throw?

    YF October 4, 2005, 9:02 pm
  • Moose through 4 clean. Will he hit the 5th-inning wall that’s been his undoing several times recently? Let’s hope not….

    YF October 4, 2005, 9:51 pm
  • Leiter. Oh boy.

    YF October 4, 2005, 10:24 pm
  • Phantom tag? Who cares. Bad play. We’ll take it.

    YF October 4, 2005, 10:27 pm
  • And Sheffield’s Adventures in Outfielding continues…but the results are….good.

    YF October 4, 2005, 10:59 pm
  • Okay, cue the Metallica, save op for Mo. We like…

    Spidey October 4, 2005, 11:11 pm
  • YES. We had to sweat a bit, but Yanks go up 1-0.
