I don't have much to say in anticipation of tonight's game. The Yanks are playing with house money having already taken the series from the Tigers and moved within 1/2 game of the Red Sox. The worst-case scenario (barring an injury) would have the Yankees enter the three game weekend series with Boston 1 1/2 games behind their rivals. Obviously a sweep would be nice, but with Kevin Brown facing Jeremy Bonderman, no one should lose any sleep if the Yanks drop one tonight to the Tiger's young ace. That said, I'll have one hand on my broom tonight.

Can you guys coordinate game-comment posts? I wouldn't know which to start on.

Wade Miller gives up 6 earned runs to Toronto in the first. 6-0 after 2.

I think Matsui went through Brooklyn and Queens chasing that fly ball...

Suicide prevention hotlines must be ringing all over the Boston area.

rilkefan, he is as far as you and I are concerned, but I doubt that we'll see anything like that in the analysis.

"Obviously a sweep would be nice, but with Kevin Brown facing Jeremy Bonderman, no one should lose any sleep if the Yanks drop one tonight to the Tiger's young ace."
Nice prediction on Brown. One run scores when JetEr's throw hits a guy on the back and another on a horrible play by Matsui, otherwise he allows one earned over seven.

The man is hitting, no doubt about it. Good for him.

My affections begin to turn...

Does no one care that the BoSox are now in 4th place?

It's official: Jason Giambi is Steve Balboni reincarnated.

Alex Rodriguez is the best player in baseball right now.

Steve Balboni, the poor bastard. God but he was awful. My friend and I at age 9 used to laugh at him as the big goon he was. Sure did swing hard, though. Sometimes he'd even hit the ball and then look out!

Balboni, Mattingly, Tino, Giambi. The circle's complete.

Good point about Monday, but I'm still happy. Plus see my comment in the recent thread at
