Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

There's actually a 'Facts about Raul Ibanez' hashtag (#RaulIbanezFacts) going up on Twitter.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

And suddenly, the Yankees have been stabbed through the heart.

What a strange turn of events. I have a feeling Jeter won't be back tomorrow...

If the Tigers hold on and win here, they'll have about as much momentum as one could possibly hope for as they move on to the rest of this series.

Jeter has a broken ankle and is out for the remainder of the season.

Girardi just said that Jeter fractured his ankle and is most definitely done for the rest of the postseason. Big blow to the Yankees to go on top of a tough loss.

Terrible to see Jeter go down.

That's a tough break (no pun intended) for the Yankees, he was the only other one hitting besides Ibanez.

I would love to see a Cards-Yanks World Series. Let's see how the LCSs go. Awesome playoffs so far. It can be a lot of fun to watch when your team is on a golf course as it doesn't really matter who wins. You just get to watch some good baseball.
I'd like to see just the opposite, but if the World Series is as exciting as the playoffs have been, I'm okay with any matchup.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Jeter going down and the Tigers winning last night changes the entire complexion of the series. Really tough luck for the Yanks.

Hopefully the Giants learned how to hit at Home based on their performance in Cincy. What a day for Sports in the Bay Area. Starts off with the huge 49er game, and then goes north about 7 miles for Game 1 of the NLCS. I can't wait.

Which is ironic, 'cause if Ibanez didn't tie the game Jeter would still be standing on two feet.

Kinda makes up for Sabathia breaking Markakis' thumb.

Go Tigers!!

Horrible blown call at 2nd and the tigers are gifted two runs by the Outfield Fly crew. Terrible.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Before the series started, I made my calls to some friends: Tigers over Yankees, Giants over Cardinals.

With everything that's happened and the insane amount of momentum the Tigers have, especially with Verlander starting on Tuesday, I'm now calling a 4-game sweep of the Yankees. Even with Sabathia going in game 4, I just don't see the Yankees taking even a single game in Detroit, with their staggeringly poor offense and all the bad luck they've had heaped on top of that.

Still calling the Giants in the NLCS despite the game 1 loss, though I could easily see it going all seven games - neither team really has a clear overall advantage there.

Holy balls, I knew this year's free agent class was pretty weak, but I didn't realize how pants-on-head stupidly terrible it is.

The biggest name on the list is Greinke, who's a well-known headcase, and from there it's a pretty steep drop to Dan fuckin' Haren in terms of pitching. The second basemen are hilariously awful, too.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

A quote, purportedly from Jim Leyland of all people:

"I find no pleasure at all that Derek Jeter is not playing this series. The whole nation wanted him to play, and that's a sad thing."

Ordinarily I'd dismiss this as a rumor but it came to me via my Twitter account (I follow @Yankees) so I can only assume he actually said this.
