Yeah, Joba on the mound. Yankee management's tinkering - "the Joba rules" - has turned that guy into a complete headcase. He better be in the bullpen next year.

they either need to dump the ‘rules’ next year do the bull pen as you said. He actually was pitching well after the all star break until they started pushing his starts back and cutting his innings.

I just think he has the temperment of a short reliever. ...in the mold of Gossage, not Mo Rivera. Volatile. They’re tying to turn him into Clemens, and it’s just not working. But what you said is true — Joba had a pretty good stretch after the AS break.

He has me worried tonite. I have never liked the “joba rule”.

Let’s hope he doesn’t load the bases tonite.

I like the Term Jim Leyland uses for starting pitchers who can pitch out of a jam. He calls them “horses”.

Both teams are going to the playoffs. You decide which team the other teams is the AL DO NOT want to meet in the playuffs, I’ll guarentee you, the Angels want no part of the Red Sox in the first or ANY round, I think it comes back to NY against Boston in the ALCS, the winner taking whatever the NL has left over after their own playoffs for the world championship.

Its interesting that in this decade, the Yankees and Red Sox have no fear of each other. But I think both teams would rather play someone else in the ALCS.

Yeah, Joba invariably gets himself into jams early in games. I suspect we’ll see another pitcher-by-committee tonight — Joba for 3 or 4, then Aceves and/or Mitre in hopes of getting to Mo.

Hey cripplecreek, you a Tigers fan? If so, the ALDS awaits us. ...a rematch of ‘06.

I’ll watch but both teams are basically playing out the schedule and getting ready for the ALDS at this point.

The Yanks would far rather play the Bosox than the Angels in the ALCS -- (far) less travel, and the Angels have been a playoff (and reg season) nemesis for 7 years now. Plus the Yanks have some major unfished biz with Boston -- revenge for '04.

Yep Tiger fan here. We haven’t really faced the Yankees much this year. I think its been mostly central division opponents. Tigers have held the lead since May by as much as 7 games and down to a tie for first with the White Sox for one game. Back up to a 3 game lead now.

I'm betting he'll be with in Chokeland next year as part of a deal to get some good young players from the Pathetics.

BASEBALL PING LIST

If you would like to be on the ping list let me know.

This will be a medium volume ping list during the baseball season and a low volume ping list when all life stops in late October.

A-Rod is solid when he's not feeling like he has to be all things to all people.

Lester throws a mean pitch.

Tex stays alive.

I generally prefer to listen to games on the radio, but it wasn't broadcast tonight.

I've discovered that the girls are prettier when you watch the games on TV.

They have this thing called "Smile of the Game" where they track down some hottie with the camera...

We softened them up for you by taking two out of four in KC. I was at the game on Monday where we spotted them an 8 to 2 lead and then came back to win 11 to 9.
