Why would the Yankees media spread rumors?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Apparently Leyland said it during the pregame or something. I've been trying to Google it.

Although, you're right...an official team Twitter feed wouldn't be saying these things if they weren't true. And, despite his pronounced resemblance to Scorpius, Leyland has always been a decent guy.

The way Verlander is throwing tonight, there is every possibility the Yankees will go a third straight game without scoring a run.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ sadly, you're right, the Yanks have apparently forgotten how to fucking HIT Which is weird since they did well against Baltimore, but now, they fold?

oh well. Trying not to panic. At least we got CC the next game. Maybe we can do to Detroit what Boston did to us in '04

CC is a beast and just the guy you need to stop the bleeding. Problem is that the Tigers are coming back with probably their second best starter in Scherzer

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

So much for the shutout!

This is great stuff. My team isn't even in it anymore and I've been on the edge of my seat during every game of this ALCS.

Still hoping for Verlander and the Tigers to pull it out, but it's certainly not a sure thing anymore...

Yep. Glad they were able to pull it off in the end and win the game 2-1 against the Yanks though.

Proud of them so far, hoping they can keep the momentum going . Go Tigers!

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Quite a nail-biter in the end! I have to say, purely in terms of the quality of the games being played and the levels of hype, this may be the best postseason I've ever seen. Between all the division series going 5 games, to all the incredibly unlikely comebacks, it's been fun to watch. Glad I sprung to get cable back in time to see most of it!

Too bad my A's didn't get farther, but you can't say they didn't give it a good shot. I also would have preferred to see the Oriels over the Yankees, and the Nationals over the Cardinals, just for more variety in WS participants, but I really can't argue with how much I've been enjoying these games regardless. From here, I'm hoping for a Tigers/Giants world series.

What do you mean you're not dead yet. If Yankees win four in a row against the Tigers, I'll become a frickin Yankees fan and wear a Jeter shirt around all day.

Yea. You guys aren't. The Yankees are a good team. Hoping the Tigers give them their all in Game 4. It should be interesting.

Remember the 2004 ALCS?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ My POINT is, if the Red Sox could win 4 in a row then, the Yankees can do it now.

Cowboy Up, motherfuckers!

That Red Sox team had the benefit of not having a lunatic of a manager batting Brett Gardner at leadoff and playing Eduardo Nunez at short over Alex fuckin' Rodriguez.

Although your defiance is kind of amusing. I'm not saying a historic collapse isn't possible, given the way that everything has fallen into their laps (White Sox collapsing, two very favorable playoff matchups), but it isn't terribly likely, especially since if it goes to 7 games, the Yankees have to face Verlander again.

The only way they can win four straight games against Detroit right now is if they A) stop sucking out loud, in general and B) figure out how to hit dingers again, given that they could very conceivably be ahead (or at least have a win) if any one of A-Rod, Swisher, Cano, or Granderson were hitting at an average level right now.
