RGM…enjoy the game buddy and I hope we get a win with CC…have fun…I was wondering ..are ticket prices high for toronto games?

I’ll be at the game on Saturday afternoon at the Dome in Toronto. Hope the Yankees win it. Yanks should take tomorow night’s game with CC pitching. The Jays have a young energetic team and can put some runs on the board. Where they are lacking is with their pitching.

Itdibo–Unfortunately as I said I didn’t watch the game orfollow it on GAmeday. The games from the west are too late. Not willing to stay up until 2 in the morning, so I missed what was happening. I only knew that Wade gave up the home run and lost the game in the 12th, and Jeter was up to bat with Gardner on 3rd in the 9th and he struck out. Anyway, we move on. The Rays leading the Sox 6-1 in the 6th. The Yankees have had trouble with the Sox all year and the Sox have had trouble with the Rays. The Rays have a good chance of winning the wild card if they keep playing like they are and the Sox have a good chance of losing it if they keep playing like they are.

RGM…I agree with your opinion..except for the bullpen hasn’t gotten it done…lets face it when we get into extra innings our offense completely shuts down…also lets not forget as far as this particular game nova gave us 1 run ball into the 8th and then we got 3-4 more innings of bullpen shut out ball until the homer…consider also the yanks have the #1 bullpen era in the AL, maybe in all of baseball, I’d have to look it up..but I love our bullpen and what Girardi has done giving everyone a particular job and/or inning…its working big time….Jones got thrown out at the plate..we could have had second and third with one out..also Gardner led off an inning getting on first and we bunted with Martin instead of stealing…I’d rather Gardner steal second, then bunt him to third…Gardner, leading all of baseball in sb’s, except Bourne on Atlanta..this way a fly or grounder could score him…2 out hits are hard to come by sometimes…just my opinion, tough loss…bottom line..we have to do better in extra’s…Will be watching rays and sux tonight…should be a battle!!…go yanks!!

“Too bad. Had a chance to go up 5 on the Sox and didn’t get it done. We’ve lost too many extra inning games lately. Our bull pen hasn’t got it done. But the offense was missing last night again obviously. I didn’t see the game or follow it on Gameday. Too late. Jeter stranded a man on 3rd in the 9th I understand which could have won the game. Jeter has been getting hits but not enough with someone on base in critical situations, not like it used to be. Anyway, series against the Jays can help pad the lead with the Sox playing the Rays. They haven’t been too successful against the RAys this year.

Problem is, this team doesn’t have a leadoff hitter who can be a real spark plug. Jeter isn’t that, like a lot of this team he is past his prime of his career. This team is going to have to look to getting younger after the season, finally getting a peak at the future catcher in Romine, he and Montero could be a big part of that effort to get younger. gardner ISN’T a lead of hitter far too inconsistent, only thing he has going for him is his speed, but speed isn’t the most important thing in baseball, he ranks only 33rd in runs scored in the majors, and a very average .348 OBP which only ranks 59th in the majors to go along with a very average .261 BA. Gardner has really tailed off in the 2nd half (kinda thought he would), they gotta stop batting him back-to-back with Nunez( who is really slumping badly) and Martin. Maybe package Gardner/Nunez in a trade with BUSTnett (although I think thas highly unlikely) get younger pitchers, this team has too many 5-6 inning starters in rotation.
