Default The 2010 NY baseball thread

For any Yankee or Met talk this season

Last night, Marte nearly cost the Yankees the game

Mets are hot.

Anyone jump in with comments on current / recent games or the season

Yankees are looking like they are solid... but of course with their age comes questions. One of these days Rivera is just going to lose his cutter. I think. Or maybe not?

I mean a guy lives on basically one pitch, 80% of the time, and goes as long as he has?

as to the Mets, what can I say? They've pulled lightning out of a bottle with Dickie and that other kid pitcher of theirs.

I was watching the YES network this evening, and since it's an off day for the Yankees, YES was playing a "classic", one of the dodger-yankees world series games.

One glaring difference in the game then, and now, is the pace of the game!

Geesh, if I didn't hear the announcers and realize this was "real time" I would have sworn they had the playback set in Fastforward.

The difference between those games and the stupid, long, games of today is striking.

Where on almost every pitch, a batter is stepping out, a pitcher is walking off the mound, or a catcher is running out to "confer" on signs.

Just play the game, dabnabit!

Met 2 out of 3 from the M&M boys.

Yanks 2 out of 3 from their old manager, A-roid shakes Joe's hand after "the book" and Joe T gets his first win over the Yankees... ever... as a player or manager.

Some interesting highlights this past weekend.

Mets played in the 6th boro last night, but lost .... no muy bueno!

Dickey Suffers His First Loss as Mets Fall in Puerto Rico

Published: June 28, 2010


SAN JUAN, P.R. — A sweltering tropical haze hung low over Hiram Bithorn Stadium on Monday, drenching the players in their uniforms but unable to douse the enthusiasm of 18,073 fans energized by the rare opportunity to watch major league baseball here.

not bad at all, I guess I wasn't paying enough attention:

"Since May 12, Javier Vazquez's ERA is 3.05, down nearly seven runs per game from the 9.78 he posted in his first five starts this season. It's also the best ERA among the Yankees' five starters during that 10-start stretch.

"

The Yanks continied their awesome run toward the post season today. Shades of 2000 with unproven performers. 3rd base coach should be fired, I've seen too many blown decisions.

I love Tony Dungy, but shouldn't he stick to football ??

dink, dunk and steal is the way to beat Mariano... who is feeling his age:

Mariano Rivera blows third save in last six outings, allows Boston to steal four bases in 9th inning

BY Peter Botte AND Roger Rubin
DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITERS
Monday, September 27th 2010, 4:00 AM

Theodorakis/News
Alex Rodriguez (r.) gives the Yankees a 2-1 lead with a two-run home run in the seventh inning.

IMO, they won't be able to use him multiple innings (successfully) again this year.

That was painful to watch! But the Red Sux losing because of a "walk off" WALK was really painful.

Don't really care if the Yankees win the division or are the wild card. Just hoping that all the pitchers and the bullpen are finished with their "crap period" before the playoffs begin. The last couple of weeks has been like watching the Diamond Backs or the Phillies closer Brad Lidge! That is always painful.

BTW: I liked Steinbrenner but his plaque is grossly oversized (5' x 7') compared to others and add in its location it's way over the top. But it's their stadium so if his family wants him to appear "God like" its their privilege. I guess if my Dad had left us with +billion dollar business empire when he passed away I would think he was "God like" too.

well *that* was anticlimatic

watching a replay of Mariano and Jorge walk off the field was just like my boss and I leaving work... plain matter of fact. of course, they've been through this a couple of times already *LOL*

CC leads Yankees to 15th playoff berth in 16 years


AP ? New York Yankees dump their beers on Derek Jeter, center, after the Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue ?



? Wed Sep 29, 3:58 am ET
TORONTO ? The New York Yankees staggered up to the finish line. Then, behind a dominant performance from [COLOR=#366388 ! important][COLOR=#366388 ! important]CC [COLOR=#366388 ! important]Sabathia[/color][/color][/color], they strode across it and into the playoffs.
After that, it was time to party.
The Yankees clinched their 15th postseason berth in the last 16 years and Sabathia got his 21st win of the season, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday night.
"Two words: [COLOR=#366388 ! important][COLOR=#366388 ! important]Cy [COLOR=#366388 ! important]Young[/color][/color][/color]," outfielder Nick Swisher said of Sabathia. "No doubt, man. He's been a horse all year long. He's done a tremendous job."
Derek Jeter scored three runs and drove in another for the Yankees, who have reached the postseason every season but one since 1995. New York missed the playoffs in 2008, finishing behind Tampa Bay and Boston in the AL East.
The Rays, who hold a half-game lead over the Yankees in the division, clinched a playoff berth Tuesday, beating Baltimore 5-0.

it's a long series, so perhaps I'll be wrong (again) but....call me one of the faithless few, but I say stick a fork in the Yankees. I think they're done.

about as dominant performance over the yankees I can remember, ever.
