as if he couldn't make it any worse.....

NEW YORK — Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez violated a restraining order by sending dozens of text messages to his girlfriend in the weeks after he was accused of assaulting her father outside a family lounge at Citi Field and will face additional charges, prosecutors said Tuesday.




Rodriguez appeared for a routine hearing in Queens Criminal Court on third-degree assault and harassment charges, and will face additional charges of criminal contempt for sending the messages.

A lot going on in NY baseball this past week:

1. Steinbrenner bust in Monument Park:
a bit bigger of a deal than I would expect, but heck, his kids run the place so who's surprised?



2. Manuel getting miffed over Torre comments
First, Manuel *has got to know* he's a dead-man-walking w.r.t. the job
Second, no one in their right mind thinks that Torre would seriously be considered for this job, do they?

Torre sorry for comments about Mets job (AP)

AP - Dodgers manager Joe Torre said Tuesday he was sorry for saying he was curious about the New York Mets job and current Mets

3. Mets "officially" eliminated
ELIMINATED! NY Mets Post Season Hopes Officially Over With Loss To Marlins



Andrew Burton/Getty Images For MLB Fans




By Cooper L. Train
It was simply a matter of when, not if, the Mets would be eliminated, but with last nights 5-2 loss to the Florida Marlins, your New York Mets officially hit their magic number, finding themselves eleven-and-a-half games back of the Wild Card with eleven games still to play.

CC falls apart yesterday, tonight Pettite gets bombed.

Say what you want, the Yanks are not a sure thing for either the post-season nor the World Series.

Sure, they *should* make the post season, but then what?

Nobody is pitching big right now, and the post-season is all about what? Pitching!

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.

Not very meaningful, but they are in the hunt for the division and best overall record, since the twinkies, rays and yanks have been resting folks, for the most part.

Tonight, though, the Yankees start their "A" Lineup:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Jorge Posada C
Lance Berkman DH
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF

Arguably the best lineup in the American League and possibly both Leagues.
