Can Mike Mussina finally get his 18th win?
Vat ho. We sure hope so.
For Moose or for this game thread...
Better luck next time, kid.
These game have no emotion, so naturally most aren't going to feel compelled to post. I know I'm in that boat, even though I have kept on watching.
My fondest memories of this site are from September 2005. When the Yankees came back from something like six games back, the season came down to the last series against the Sox, and every game in September was like a playoff game. I was here every night. The month was exhausting, but exhilarating.
One of the highlights of that month was three years ago tomorrow - the game where Wang had nine assists, and Bubba hit a walkoff homer. We were so wired after that game most of us stayed up to see the Sox lose to Tampa. And many were talking about maybe getting together at a bar somewhere.
It was a Monday night, I had to be at work early the next day, but I was too excited to sleep, and so was here, reading comments and commenting. And was back the next evening, butt dragging but unable to stay away.
not surprisingly there has been a lot more passion about the stadium and other topics lately.
though if mosse is able to pull a win out it adds an element to it all.
But he didn't juice.
And I always thought this story was cool:
Last year on Sept. 11., the Reds had Katrina Marino and her children throw out the first pitch, which Griffey caught.
here's the yankee press release about it.
I guess the Rams don't count?
i would not be feeling too good about the post season if i am white sox fan though.
0 I'm thinking Girardi should just start Moose every other game after Sunday. Get him 20 no matter what. It's not like his arm can be getting too tired.
Great seeing that broad smile on Moose's face after he came out.
Hey, even if he doesn't get 20, 18 or 19 is pretty damn nice too!
How about Miranda with 2 walks?
Cervelli also made his MLB debut, though without a plate appearance to show for it. I think we'll see both of them quite a bit next summer.
In THREE of his loses, he had Quality starts, giving up (ER/IP) 2/6, 2/6, 2/8.... so there were REAL quality starts, for a combined ERA of 2.70!
In his no decisions, he had FOUR Quality starts, giving up (ER/IP) 2/6, 2/8, 3/7, 2/7 .... so there were three REAL quality starts, for a combined ERA in those 4 no-decisions of 2.89!
So there are SEVEN games that could easily have been Won.... for a combined ERA over those 7 of 2.81.
Seven games.... 2.81 ERA.... for ZERO wins. BRUTAL. He could be 21 and 9 now and still have been unlucky!
I can almost forgive the Yanks for missing the PS. It had to happenb some time. Buy man-oh-man did they let Moose down.
I mean a 21 and 9 record on a .536 team is amazing. (although Cliff Lee, 22/2/2.41, on a team under .500 is just stunning)!!!
I don't expect Moose to be this good in 2009, but I believe he will be solid, maybe better then league average. He will be a fine #5. Andy? The Yanks have to think hard about Andy in 2009. I wonder.... it would be nice to have some insurance.... could Andy be in the BP next year... long man or whatever, and then join the SR if we have a rash of injuries/disappointments?
