as much as I'd like to complain about his LAST at-bat, that loss was squarely on mo's shoulders...obviously a-rod did his thing...kudos for a great start!

I was shocked at A-Rods performance lastnight. Again, I know it's April but even the best of the best are impressed with the way he's playing. HE DID his job lastnight.. What more can we ask for?

We know damn well our hitting is on the money right now. Our pitching is what's killing us. I do have to say that Pettite set a great example lastnight for the young pitchers. He pitched with confidence and held the sox to ground balls (other than the two run homer).

This Sox fan knows we came out there with our 1, 2, 3 pitchers and barely won the three games. Pettitte is a legitimate 2 pitcher, but the others were rookies (master of the obvious) I hope we get our act together because we arent going to hit 4 straight HR off Moose.

Glad they started pitching Arod in, cant let him extend his arms the way he is hitting the ball. The second HR Arod hit off Schill was off the plate .. he just drove it out of the park.

Thankful for the 3 w's, they count

I am getting tired of the Red Sox hitting the Yankees. I really wish the Yankees would get some balls and retaliate. It is getting ridiculous to watch them do nothing. They should plant Big Crapi on his a$$, and maybe this would put an end to it. This has been going on for a few years now and they never even brush Big Crapi off the plate. If Clemens was on this team there would have been retaliation.

He is definitely hitting and they need him to continue to offset the poor pitching.

There are some of us that are hoping the pitching doesn't come through.

The worst thing they could do is to fire Torre, then they will be set back too far to make it into the playoffs.

GO Orioles!

I was surprised there was a "buzzing". If I was a Yankee pitcher I wouldnt have retailiated by hitting a player my guys with offspeed pitches, however their two best guys were hit, you have do something!

About last nights game in Toronto with the Arod pop fly controversy .....

Would Jeter have done that ...., No!

Arod is always in these things, sort of says something. When and if you do something like that, dont smirk on 3rd base. Clemens never admits to throwing at ANYONE in his career, when interviewed he doesnt wink at the camera or play coy.

well clemens is just smarter that's all.

A--rod earned his rep when he interfered at first base a few years back.

IMO he is a low-class,though talented, ball player.

Never wanted him on the team, and despite his decent numbers, can't wait for him to go.

IMO, the guy wants to be loved so badly by the NY fans, that he comes across as a jerk. He is his own worst enemy! The only way that he'll ever be loved in NY is to HIT in the PLAYOFFS!! That being said, He's going to bail as soon as he can. I'm just glad the Mets Never signed him and don't need him anymore.

ptw, the more I read about A-rod, the more I see him play, the more I really believe he is a jerk, not just "comes across". Hopefully that is not true, and that privately he is a nice guy. He's getting paid enough to take some grief, but have to be fair in that I don't know (and most people won't) what he's really all about.

I really would like him to be happy ...somewhere else

Well, I finally have to admit that for whatever reason, A-Rod is Mr. Clutch this year.

Not that others don't come up big time, but last night was some game.

Watching Mo that 9th inning in the pouring rain, after A-Rod hits a rope over the fence in right center of Fenway, I have to say that Mo is 100% back as well. His control and working with Jorge were superb, save for one pitch that
big poppy almost hit out to tie the game.

I still don't "like" A-Rod, and still hope he finds his way somewhere else next season "go in peace", but hey, the guys doing the job this year.

I do think A-Rod is an A-Hole, but he IS coming through this year. You can't say it's only April anymore

Mo is still Mo. He didn't get enough credit this year because of the couple blown saves he had. NTM, The team doesn't give him many save opportunities He did one hell of a job last night, especially in the downpour. The guy went up against the Sox best bats.. You can't say you aren't impressed

As for the rest of the team, Posada is crushing the ball, Cabrera is proving he's the next start outfielder (You see his catch?!?!), Cano is coming around, & Abreu is starting to see the ball again.

I know we're still behind, but things are starting to look up for once.

Mo was the best I had seen him in a long time last night.

I missed Cabrera's catch but did see Abreu's catch in the ninth on Pedroia.

I missed a lot of the game, but saw most of the 7th-9th innings.

I couldn't stop watching I had to wake up at 4am for work, but couldn't bring myself to turn off the TV.

Cabrera's catch was GREAT. I have to see if I can find a video clip.

Of btw, I like your new avatar
