Awesome to see the Yanks running and gunning!

You go Girardi! One of his better games as manager. Great to see an aggressive approach and making use of all the weapons he has. And they fianally left Joba in for 6…no wonder he pitched great!

I’m shocked Joba actually pitched well. This isn’t like him. Joba is a terrible pitcher. He shouldn’t be pitching good games. He did though and I’m amazed.

This was a good win for the Yankees today. Good game by Joba. He and Posada looked comfortable together.

You forgot Aceves among the reliable ones, oneof5. And yeah, it was a little closer than it needed to be. But hey, “three is a magic number!”

Well, we pulled it out but it was closer than it needed to be. Hopefully the Yankees can take at least 2 out of 3.

I still don’t have confidence in the bull pen other than Phil Hughes and David Robertson when he gets back. The other guys are too inconsistent and unreliable. Marte, Coke, Alba etc. etc. are not getting it done and really haven’t got it done all year. It’s been the yankees achiles heel along with the 5th starter. It will be interesting to see who Girardi includes in his 10 man roster for the playoffs.

Why would Girardi bring marte in? He’s been unreliable all year. You can’t give the Sox a chance to come back in a crucial game like this. Bad decision on the pen pitchers again.

Joba pitched very well! He could have gone longer, I’ll bet if the last few innings weren’t so long and he had to sit and wait. His command looked good and he and Posada were on the same page. Three straight innings and no runners.

Wow – too bad about Lester – he should be ready to go again for the post season.

First hit Joba gives up a home run. Yankees need to get as many runs as they can early. Sox have the power to come back. No lead is too much.

Like

8 hits already in the 3rd inning. Go Yankees! They need to get as many runs as they can because the Sox are a team that can come back with the power they have in the lineup.
so far so good for Joba.

Not a series to rest your best players. Not until the yankees have clinched the east and home field advantage. Need Joba to pitch big tonight, hopefully into the 6th inning and then the pen needs to shut the Sox down. Yankees need to carry the momentum down the stretch into the playoffs, This is crunch time.

Let’s go Yankees!!!
