    Re: Yankees Home Stretch / Magic Number Thread

    even though we are beating the A's lately, I still dont want to see them in a short series

    their starting pitchers, rookies, are all nasty

    I'll take my chances w the O's thank u

    Yeah that's better ... Though, considering that there are now 11 games left, and Baltimore is clearly never going to lose again, 11 doesn't seem so magic!

    Tough run, but more fun than I've had in a while as a Yankee fan. In years like 98 and 09, we were dominant and I felt supremely confident. This time, there is a very real possibility the Os can take it away. I'm glued to every game.
    Attention Steinbrenner and front-office morons! Your triumphs mean nothing. You all stink. You can sit on it, and rotate! This is George Costanza. I fear no reprisal. Extension 5-1-7-0.

    I'm not sure. Game 3 of the 1978 series is when he put on the greatest show of his career, but I don't know when that particular picture was taken.

    most likely 81, they didn't have armbands in 77 or 78.

    Too many strange things happen to count out the W Sox but they do seem to be in free fall without a parachute right now.

    Det blew the lead but won it in the 9th
    Texas held off Oakland despite 5 HRs from the green & gold,
    Seattle is up 7-2 heading to the 8th in LA.

    I really don't want to see the Rays in a one game playoff. They will, by definition, start a good pitcher and their closer is lights out.

    Assuming I don't know who the starter is (like if it were Verlander), I'd rather take my chances on any other team in a one game playoff.
