    Even if they fucking win tomorrow they fucked themselves by not having verlander for game 1 Saturday.

    But I won't argue with you about the smug fans. I grew up a Yankees fan in the 80s and early 90s. "Steinbrenner" was a dirty word in my house. The bandwagon fans piss me off. But I also can't stand people who act like Yankees fans never suffered... I've been a Yankees fan all my life, but I never experienced a Yankees postseason game until I was a teenager. People are flipping shit about the Red Sox .426 season, but forget that the Yankees finished in last place in the AL with a .414 winning % in 1990 (worst season since 1913). The Yankees have found a way to win and a way to do it consistently, and as the Red Sox have proven, there's a lot more to that than just throwing money around.

    Holy shit! I can't believe the A's pulled that off. Now both series are tied up 2-2. Fucking love playoff baseball!

    Rarely have I been so depressed. I don't blame Valverde. I blame Leyland for keeping him out there. I don't know if I have the stomach to watch tonight's game. These late, late, late night games are killing me.

    JV will have pitch the complete game for us to win.

    I don't think that Valverde's contract will be renewed for next season. And if we lose tonight, neither will Leyland be back.

    The playoff game I went to NYY v Tigers last year Valverde almost gave up the goose in the 9th as well. He's not reliable and is a loose cannon.

    Also lol @ teger.

    I love watching post season ball. Giants, A's, Yankees, there have been some great games here.

    ^you should really hate the Tigers using that logic. prince fielder/miguel cabrera poached from poorer teams. 5th highest team salary in baseball. Prince fielder/cabrerra/verlander all make over 20million/year.

    I have a feeling verlander is going to be magic tomorrow and just dominate. cold bay area weather + power pitcher = possible shutout.... what we should expect from the Detroit Ace who earns $20,000,000 + a year.

    ^kudos to Detroits owners and management for spending money and being competitive for the last decade. I'm glad the fans get to experience that.

    also recent redsox players from the farm system: jacoby ellusbury, dustin pedrioa, kevin youkilis, jon lester, clay buchholz, johnathan pabelbon, daniel bard... those were/are legitimate MLB players straight form the farm system who are starters. hell even nomar garciapara was from the redsox farm system (i watched him when he was playing in Pawtucket for the Pawsox).

    girardi was an idiot to force Arod to even play yesterday. if anything stick with Arod during a 7 game series where he has time to eventually work things out. in a short series just go for the quick KO with everyone thats hot.

    Valverde is done. Time to look at Benoit ( :foo: ) or Al Al.

    Move boesch if he has any value. Keep dirks, berry, and Garcia.

    Delmon is gone with Victor coming back.

    I hope they attempt to keep Sanchez. Really helped down the stretch.

    Every closer blows saves. Even Mariano Rivera. If Johnson is the O's best relief pitcher, they have to throw him out there again in Game 4 and hope he has a short memory. Same goes for the Tigers and Valverde.

    This is an oversimplification.


    So is this.

    -10 Million as Kevin Gregg isn't on the team anymore. And I would assume the biggest chunk of that 80M belongs to Jones and Markakis. Jones just signed his contract this year.

    Oh....wait a minute.
