    I'm assuming G5 (if necessary) will be pushed back to prime-time if there are no other games, but right now its listed as a 5PM start.

    August 31 vs. Kuroda at Yankee Stadium (W, 6-1) -- 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 H, 0 HR, 9 K, 1 BB

    The three homers in the first game were hit by Ichiro, Ibanez, and Chavez. A-Rod has never faced him.

    If there was ever a game to give Chavez a start over A-Rod, this is it. But of course, that would never happen.
    Of course there is a way he can get Chavez and Ibanez in this game without benching Arod (as we already discussed), and that would be to sit Swisher who is 0 for 6 verses Gonzalez with 5 K's, start Ibanez in RF, and DH Chavez.

    Yes. Any pitcher can have a good start, but if you think Joe Saunders is a good pitcher, I don't know what to tell you. It's possible he can shut down two explosive offenses in back-to-back away starts, but I wouldn't count on it.

    As another poster mentioned, the nod might go to Tillman anyway.

    Sit Swisher with his 1-33 with RISP in the Post Season? Joe would not even think of it.

    Re: ALDS: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles

    Tonight and tomorrow's pitching matchups scare me, and I don't even know who is pitching for the Orioles tomorrow.

    Miguel Gonzalez gave the yankees a lot of trouble in his last start, and he is precisely the type of pitcher that gives the Yankees trouble - a composed, young pitcher who throws hard.

    Kuroda has a fairly low ERA but he has also had several games where he has been clobbered, and clobbered early. But he hasn't had one in a while, so that scares me.


    Hughes on Thursday is terrifiying. I hate to let our season ride on a game where we pitch a guy who has given up 35 home runs, in a home run hitters ball park, against a team that hit 215 home runs.

    Ironic that two hitters with better numbers are Ibanez and Chavez. They seem to be able to adapt to what the pitcher is giving them. Maybe Joe will DH Arod today and play Chavez at third?

    And play Ibanez in left?
    Move Ichiro to right?
    Sit Swisher?
    That might be way too much for Girardi's brain to handle...
    It's the right thing to do at this point, but it'll never happen.

    Re: ALDS: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles

    From RAB:

    By my unofficial count, 26 of the 64 total ALDS series from 1995-2011 were tied at one after the first two games. Of those 26 series, the team that won Game Three went on to win the series 21 times. The Yankees have been on both sides of that ledger, both the winning and losing. That 21-5 series record for Game Three winners doesn’t guarantee anything for anyone going forward, but it goes to show how much of a boost a Game Three win will be for whoever gets it.

    No worries here, the Yankees will wrap this series up in four games.

    I agree. Its very scary. Gonzalez has handled the Yankees this season and it's anyone's guess which Phil Hughes shows up tomorrow. But the Yankees should have scored off Chen. That's why this is scary now.

    It's like a replay of last years Tigers series. Joe played the exact same lineup in all 5 games. The man does not like to make changes. Funny how every other manager will tweak the lineup from game to game but not Joe.

    Well, the players had better be less scared of facing Gonzalez in game three than the fans are!! But Buck playing mind games with Arod and Swisher sure doesn't help.

    Who else feels like Showalter is totally outmanaging and outsmarting Girardi thus far?

    You're not the only one. The last Yankee game I attended (Aug 31) had tonight's pitching matchup (Kuroda/Gonzales), and Hiro was less than effective (gave up a few bombs), while Gonzo shut out the Yankees while he was in there. Hope this isn't a bad case of Deja Vu..or should i call it Deja P.U.

    How so? I don't even feel that the managers have come in to play yet in this series.

    I just feel like Showalter, as much as I despise him these days, is a superior strategist compared to Girardi - given Girardi's hard headedness to not change the lineup at all....

    You can play Ibanez in left if you like, but keep in mind: kittens will die. And you will be responsible.

    Problem is the forecast is for more rain later today with winds at 30 MPH.

    He probably is a better strategist, but he hasn't used any strategies so far this series. So far the first two games were fairly manager-proof.

    I guess you're right, but the percentages are probably higher than I imagined.
