ok. Valverde is not allowed to pitch again this game. That makes me feel better.
OT: Tigers-Yankees Game 1
Berry definitely would have made that catch had the fan not interfered with the ball.
I can't believe they pulled it out... holy monkey.
What a gutty, gutty win. Huge.
It was huge anyway, but the way it happened--massive. The Tigers have some great players, but they're clearly a real *team*.
Gutty fucking win.
Finally. Thank god.
Whew!!! Valverde pack your bags. Let's get game 2 tomorrow!
he is my hero
Valverde is broke and getting paid off to blow these games
Now the Yankees must do one of two things: either sweep all the non-Verlander games....or beat Verlander.
What a brilliant move by Leyland: Deliberately putting Valverde in to blow the game, so he could win the game later, so that there would be no question that we would never see Valverde closing again in later games where the stakes were even higher.
I don't know what voice I expect out of Delmon Young, but I'm always surprised. I close my eyes and I hear Tiger Woods.
Here's hoping Yankee fans don't see another win the rest of the year!
What a clutch win. It would have been so deflating to lose.
ridiculous. I'm spent.
People give up too easily.
Uh, our closer blew a four run lead in the bottom of the ninth after blowing a two run lead in bottom of the ninth to lose the previous game he pitched. I'd say whatever emotions Tiger fans felt were justified.
Magnum wouldn't have given up.
Ouch. Girardi just announced: Jeter done for the year. Fractured ankle. New injury.
Feel bad, that's never fun.
Ouch, that really sucks for Jeter... Hopefully it heals up well in the offseason so he can be 100% soon.
Take a seat right next to Rivera and (hopefully) watch the Yankees get swept right out of the playoffs! Glad to hear injury not career threatening and I'm sure he will be back in 2013 (when I will continue to hate everything about the Yankees)!
Leland left Valverde in so Jeter could break his ankle.
Jeter fractures his ankle. That changes a lot - lineup, defense, Ewing theory?
might be regretting having Valturde as a client now. Any money Papa fatass thought he may have gotten as a FA just took a shit with him on the mound too. Enjoy your offseason!!
