no offense, but we fattened up on the weak part of our schedule too. we had a pretty uninspiring road trip against the angels and tigers.

Obviously a team has to beat the bad teams, and fatten up on the weak parts of their schedule. That isn't what I am saying though. You should read what I wrote instead of looking to make a point. I am not talking about the Yankees, just about the fact that the Mariners can beat the bad teams, but against a solid team they are shrinking up faster than George Costanza after a swim.

and we gave the angels and tigers the same turn when they came to Yankee Stadium

Last two series Vs. Angels
2-1 Yanks @ home
1-2 Angels

Last two series Vs. Tigers
3-1 Yanks @ home
1-3 Tigers


Anyway, it's looking like 5 losses in a row for the Mariners.

Kendrick is 5 for 34 against the Seattle Mariners, yet hitting like 25 for 50 against the yanks

Hudler and Physiac may cause me to get banned.

There's only the tie-breaker rule if both teams would make the playoffs like with the yanks-sox in 2005. However, if one of the two wouldnt make it (like in this example, assuming LAA takes the west and only new york OR seattle would make the playoffs ), there will always be a single playoff game. Not like the NFL where they have a system of 42 tie-breaker stats (head-to-head record, division record, conference record, points scored, etc., etc.)

Seattle playing at Cleveland tomorrow in one of their makeup games.

Toronto has Marcum, McGowan and Burnett lined up to pitch against Seattle this weekend.

We keep saying it, but tomorrow is a big game for NY. A chance to grab the WC lead and being able to take their chances against the TB pitching for 3 games while Seattle had to face TOR pitching can give the chance of NY having a 3 game lead going into Monday. But tomorrow is where the Yanks have to make it happen.

We lost two close games in extras on the road twice (LAA & DET), and we had to pitch clemens at midnight after a 4+ hour rain delay. So I agree it wasn't bad at all.

They describe it as a DNA thing.

Trust me, I know plenty of Yankee fans that take it personal too but this is so amusing. You'd think that they were 15 games back and Francona and Theo need to be sent to an undisclosed location because of pitchfork wielding crowds.
The entire reason they Yankees won was because the umpires were too intimidated by the crowd to make "the correct calls". Now I know how stupid I sound ;) ..

This is what happens when you leave Rafael Betancourt in the pen and use Borowski as your closer. As far as I'm concerned, the Indians deserve it.

No, this is one of those Mariners 7-0 relivers benefitting from the Mariners getting the most timely hits in all of baseball. They've only score 8 more runs than they've allowed. :eek:

That is actually precisely why he sucks. Mo gives up lots of bloopers, but he seldom walks anyone. Ever. That is why he is a premier closer. Same with Papelbon. Same with Putz. They are good closers because they don't give out free passes. Therefore, a closer that gives out free passes will be infinitely more hurt by them than someone like Mo, who gives up plenty of bleeders and dribblers, but rarely puts anyone on base who hasn't fought their way on.
