Don't give Cabby an extra swing
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Don't give Cabby an extra swing
Classic Miguel swing for an RBI single 3-0!
Blown call by the ump, then Swisher gives Cabby an extra swing by not making a tough but makeable play down the rightfield line, and the Tigers are up three.
Ahhh....replay is definitely needed. After all - anytime a call goes against the Yankees the rules need to be changed.
It's all TBS can talk about! Just like during our 12th inning rally last night - it was all about Jeter's injury and the albatross of A Rod.
Bases load up. Tigers can really pile on here.
Tigers with 5 straight baserunners now
If this game ends 3-0?, do the Yankees still "get screwed?" I know a 1-0 game is different than a 3-0 game and how they would play the 8th and 9th, but it's hard for me to think a team got screwed when they were losing and can't scored any more runs.
There's no way really to know. 3-0 as opposed to 1-0 has more of an effect on the use of pinch-hitters/pinch-runners since there's more ground to make up.
That said, the way they're playing, they cannot blame the umps
Exactly. They can't score. This game was over at 1-0.... Unless Leyland brings in Valverde (in which case he better stay in NY).
Girardi (well, whoever is implmenting the strategy as he was ejected) is really doing the most fair thing you can do for your pitching staff - everybody gets to face one batter.
if Young hits a Grand Slam, Leyland might want to give Valverde a chance
I'm a Tigers fans, but that Ump must be blind. I hate missed calls because the call overshadows everything else.
Play never should have happened. What the hell was Infante doing rounding so far off the base at Second, and at such a leisurely pace in a 1-0 game?
Does anybody else have a pit in their stomach now that our starter is out?
I miss the FSD crew. Hawk Harrelson is pissing me off. It is obvious they are openly rooting for the Yankees.
and I thought it was a YES network broadcast.
TBS: Ernie Johnson, Ron Darling & John Smoltz; Reporter: Craig Sager
TBS On Deck: Host: Matt Weiner; Analysts: Cal Ripken, Jr., Dennis Eckersley & David Wells
Bring back the Kenny P look brah!
I see ya Phil!
3 outs left. It's not like the 9th inning has been dramatic for us or anything
Yankee stadium is very quiet right now. Did anyone hear what the fan yelled to Fielder after Avila caught the foul pop? "Fielder I hate you"?
I believe it was "fielder almost ate you"
It looks like the stadium is clearing out. Knowing Yankee fans in the area, their tears make me feel warm inside.
Honestly, though, after that blown call against Infante I think everyone realized it just wasn't going to happen for this team.
Don't they know Benoit is coming in to pitch the 9th?
This game could end at 10-0 and the dumbass announcers will still be crying their eyes out over the missed call. Really pissing me off.
Why TBS makes no apologies over rooting for the Yankees....Arbitron market size
|Market Code*||Rank||Type||Freq.||Market||Metro 12+ Population||DST||Hispanic 12+ Population**||Black 12+ Population***|
watching a YES broadcast. It would have the same bia but probably some good info on the yankees we aren't getting from TBS.
Exactly. We all now Hawk's aversion to the tigers. This broadcast is just infuriating.
From now on, I will always think that TBS is, for the benefit of the MLB, laying the ground rules for the further graduated implementation of replay because of sheer market size, not necessarily because one team is playing great baseball.
What do you think will happen to their ratings if the Tigers win? I've got 15MM reasons why they REALLY want the Yankees to win this.
That looks about right, but let's say it was Boston-Detroit (pretty close in terms of market size). My guess is that they'd be higher on Boston than Detroit. I think there is more a favoritism for the coastal teams than the middle save for Chicago and St. Louis.
A little surprised Detroit's market size is less than 4M. Haven't been in the state for about 5 years, but I swear it was around 4.5M not that long ago.
Benoit warming up, middle of the lineup due for the Yankees
Benoit? I hope the leash is short
please no 9th inning drama....
we get to end games by chanting "let's do some Coke".
Fuck you Lamont, put the phone away
Base hit. The YAnkees are barely alive.
doesn't make me feel any better about closing out games but still impressive
Side note: Swisher has gotta be the biggest tool in baseball. Even after an embarassing loss he has a stupiid smirk on his face.
It's the 'I'm pulling 10 million dollars this year no matter what way this series goes' smirk.
I wouldn't read too much into his facial expression. I heard people say the same thing about Denard, especially regarding the ND game this year. I don't even want to catalog the stupid shit I heard.
His whole track record contributes to his tool status.
EDIT: Referring to Swisher, obviously.
If I were shtooping Kate Upton, I know I would. Why bother trying to hide it?
Best sports weekend ever?!?!?
