Ya gotta love optimism :D

Now that my beloved Cardinals are gone I have no favorite. And no bias. I suspect the series will be Dodgers-Yankees. And I suspect the Yankees will prevail in 6 or 7.

But ya never know ;)

This is why people hate the Yankees. There was a Baseball playoffs thread going, but no, the Yankees have to have their own thread.

After the Dodgers swept my Cards, I say bring on the Phillies. Don't want to watch Mannie with the long dreadlocks again, had enough of it in the way too short playoffs. :p

My great uncle was a die hard Yanks fan. When I was a kid (and still to this day), I always wanted the cards to win. After that, my second fav team was the Yankees.

...time to think about the Phillies!!!Yo Bob, av bet time.

1) Winner picks the av.
2) Loser wears the av for the length of weeks that the series went. For example, when the Phils win in 4 you have to wear the av I give you for 4 weeks. It's not going 7 but if it did you would wear the av for 7 weeks.

Deal?

40 pennants and 26 W.S. is pretty hard sell on getting the hometown calls. Umps make bad calls all the time . So Pettite got the outside corner. So what......So did Maddux and Glavine....ALL THE TIME. If that's the case, then you'd better start swinging at the outside stuff. Stars get the benefit of the doubt. He's a HOF pitcher who's a post season icon. You'll see it when they start giving Pedro the corners too. I won't be crying.

All those pennants and WS wins and 25cents will get you a cup of coffee. I watched both series and I can live with bad calls IF and only IF they were pretty much even, but the dodgers seemed to get more favored calls. Wonder why? might they have wanted a Dodger vs yanks WS? :rolleyes:

I just cant wait for the ass kissing the Fox announcers will lay on the yanks. :rolleyes: In the NLCS the announcers called the game as if the Phills were not the WS champs, you wait and see if they call the WS like that.

Yep..but see...this isn't the Yankees that had no pitching in the early decade. This team has the arms and the bats. It much more resembles when Pettite, Mendoza, Wetteland, Rivera and Wells were on the mound than when the Yanks had no middle relief.
In addition, we'll see how the Phils handle wiping the drool off their chins from being in THE Yankee stadium. I'm betting once that wears off, It'll be a bit too late. There is no place like a game in New York. Just ask Pedro.

Ya it really affected us when we won 2 out of three games :rolleyes: and if i am not to much mistaken we would have won another game if not for the blown save lidge had in that "park". New York blows and you are going to get a taste of real pitching this week.


Its going to be called "the house ryan built". Dont worry you are going to see a good pitcher take the mound for the Phills.

All of those championships have nothing to do with the poor umpiring in the Angels/Yankees series. Ste strike zone was iffy for both sides but game 4, ugh. How do you see 2 runners who were not on the base get tagged? How do you miss a pick off attempt where the runner is diving back to the base and in doing so pushes the shortstop's glove, with the ball in it, into the bag and is called safe. In the Minnesota series, how do you not see a ball land 6 inches fair not to mention having it bounce off the left fielder's glove and call it foul. The only call I saw going against the Yanks was in game 4 where the called the runner leaving 3rd too early when he clearly didn't. The umpiring has been so bad that they are going to be going to be using better quality umpires instead of using this new rotation system.

Game 4 was a mess, I concede that, but regardless, you're not winning with 1 run...not against this team.

So even if all this is true, how much more important are those 8 horrendous errors and shoddy base running so often on display for L.A.? So while blaming the umps on calls that were pretty much a non factor is fun,those 8 errors are a heck of big deal. Want to tell me how important that 13th inning error in game 2 was because Angel scrubs were trying to make things happen (Izturis)? Ask Bill Buckner how important fundamental fielding is.
Take care of your business on fundamentals and the rest will take care of itself.

Nobody said "Sweep" but you.

The bottom line of our analysis is that you think it was Umps, I think it was shoddy fielding and baserunning that lost the game for the Angels. I think the Yankees win in 6.

Not what I said at all. What I said is that the bare bones of it is that the Yanks get the calls. Whether or not it has a direct impact on the game is one thing but if it does, count on the Yanks getting the favorable calls.

I am no Yanks fan (Cards "sob").

I think CC was overused in 2008. You faced him once and he was gone in 3 innings. Don't expect the same Tomorrow.

Of note is that both starters tomorrow are lefties. ADN as for hitting, team offenses:

Yanks #1

Phillies #4

Team hitting against left:

Yankees - #1

Phil - #6

Lee is a cya young winner :rolleyes:

Like I said if they come out to play and are not rusty then the yanks will lose at least one game of the first two.

You yank fans have to remember that its also very loud in philly and by no means a easy ballpark to play in. Except for some shaky pitching from Ho che min (chan ho park) in game 2 we would have swept the dodgers.

Yep. Pitching in the AL is a big differene with that DH. Plus CC has dropped his ERA almost an entire point over the last 4 years.
Lee is good, but he's 4-4 with a 5.02 ERA in nine career starts against the Yankees

I'd be concerned about having to rely on Hamels in game 3. He has the potential to get boinked really good. He's been pretty inconsistant.

and then there's Pedro..

Pedro's 11-11 with a 3.20 ERA in 32 career starts against the Yankees, and is 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA in six postseason appearances against them

This could get ugly quick. I'm not saying it will, but what's more likely?

After all the Yankees are Pedro's "daddy". :p

Do you live in a hole in the ground? Do you know anything about baseball?

Derek Jeter plays short stop! He hit 335 this year! He is Mr. Cool., Mr. Clutch!

He made all of 8 errors this year!

Sorry I ALMOST forgot, Rollins will be taking the Mr Clutch title after that triple he hit in game 3 of the NLCS.

If anyone is interested, What IF Sports ran simulations of this matchup. They ran over 10,000 simulations using what I don't know.

Their results is Yankees are likely winners. In 6. Always interesting to see how computer models fare against the real world. They are 5 out of 6 the last 6 years including picking the Phillies last year and the Cardinals in 2006.

Beating Sabathia three times and holding up despite a bullpen disadvantage will be very difficult for the Phillies.


Two lineups=even. Cliff Lee vs. CC Sabathia=even. Pedro Martinez vs. A.J. Burnett=even. Cole Hamels vs. Andy Pettitte=even. Mariano Rivera? Checkmate


The Yankees would have won 110 games if they had played in the NL East.

Phils win in 6...I can manipulate things too. Besides, whoever is in charge of this site knows nothing. They have Ibanez in RF, Werth in CF, and Victorino in LF.

I don't know if they are manipulating anything. And the positioning isn't important. I believe they use a statistical computer generated simulation of games played between the two teams using season long defensive averages and pitching and hitting stats. The Phillies have reason to be hopeful since computers can't measure things like hot streaks or "cajones". No telling who will wilt or step it up under WS pressure.

The bad news for Phillies fans is this is the same simulation that projected the Phils over the Rays last year against the common grain. And they have been right 5 of the last 6 years. I don't know if they go back further than that.

We;ll see. I do find it interesting some of the Phillies fans don't even know the players on the other team and just assume since their team is good they will win. Let me assure you - BOTH teams are very good and names like Jeter, A-Rod, Texiera and Cano will become apparent as your Howard, Werth and Utley.

IMO the series is going to come down to a few players. If Texiera wakes up and A-Rod stays hot Yanks win in 5. If Ryan stays torrid and the Phils bullpen sucks it up they might win. But face it - the Phillies a

Here's a question: Let's see how objective you can be

Why is it the Yankees spend more money than other baseball teams?
I really kinda get tired of hearing about this all the time.

Here's my take on the truth of the matter.

First, New York is THE biggest market for sports.
It has a vast fan base to tap into and the media market is the largest in the country. There are more Yankee fans than any one else. (There are also more Yankee haters)

It's a smart organization: They have the best farm system in baseball. Despite being criticized for being a team that "buys" it's players, most of the talent that won the 4 1990's championships were all home grown no names. Rivera, Pettite, Jeter, Williams, Posada, Mendoza, El Duque', Soriano....all started in the Yanks system.

Sure they filled in the gaps with some names..., but who doesn't.....except for OWNERS who could give a rats ass about WINNING and care more about PROFITS.
But really...how is buying players working out for them? They didn't even sniff a World Series in the 80's and they've been pretty dry this decade.

Look Steinbrenner is a eccentric old loon, but he wants to WIN. Despite all his drawbacks, he's a fan of the game...just like Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder who are both willing to spend money. (How's that woking out for them?)
If you think it's just about money and New York city, then go ask the Jets and Nicks....how you doin'

Couple all these things together and you get a dynasty occassionally.

Why don't you ask yourself why your favorite owners don't SPEND A RED DIME TO WIN.

See the Dallas Cowboys or the Los Angeles Lakers. They have owners and markets that support their teams and desperately want to win..... but remember that in Football there is much more parity, because of "restrictions" on spending. If that's what you want in Baseball, then just admit it, but it it won't be a "free market system".

So while some of you are preacing socialism in Baseball here's a link (http://www.democrats.org/volunteer.html) that will really interest you all. You can complain there about being "fair" and "sharing the wealth" cause that's what your basically suggesting. :D

That's a good idea. Did you hear that Mark McGwire will be the Card's hitting coach this year? Hope he doesn't pass out the "vitamins". Remember that android stuff he was taking. One of the local sportswriters said he'll be explaining his usage after the series. Supposedly LaRussa said McGwire will answer questions, but after the series' completion.

I refuse to talk trash everytime I do it bites me in the arse.


I have never seen a more lucky team then the yanks, utley slipping, blown calls, fly balls hitting camras (that should a be ground rule doubles). Total bums on the yankees pitching staff looking like the second coming of sandy cofax.

I of course get pissed when you lose games due to bullshit like that. Now that Pedro is up and rested and the yanks only have a tired petiet (or whatever his name is) I just hope grape ape (howard) wakes the fuck up and gets his head out of his ass. Who knows? Lets just come out and play game 6.

Yeah. Mac needs to hold a press conference if he is getting back into baseball. BUT WQAITING TIL THE CLASSIC IS OVER IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. DON'T DISTRACT FROM WHAT HAS BEEN A HOTLY CONTESTED SERIES.

Understand the caps key lock thing, as my laptop is over 4 years old and various keys get sticky. The space bar doesn't always work the greatest either. SR was upset when I held my laptop upside down and shook it to get out the crumbs and miscellaneous stuff. The next time I did that at least I turned it off first. :D It's getting to be time for a new computer. Or else I can just attach the external keyboard. That might buy me a bit more time.

Back to the subject---apparently MLB asked for the delay til after the WS. LaRussa apparently really pushed the Cards management to bring on McGwire. Ditto with Pujols, also a Big Mac fan.

Utley is under contract for 3 more years. Believe me, he'll be a Philly for life. As for the Series, it's the first Series since 2003 to reach game 6. The Phillies should be in the driver's seat but the Yankees have been the beneficiary of every kind of break in the book. They have hit very few balls hard and I've never seen a team get so many doink hits as the Yankees. It's baseball, it happens. The Phils have also pitched themselves into a hole. Good starts by Martinez and Blanton were spoiled by either the bullpen or the Phillies hitters not being able to hit in key situations. The Yankees, even though they haven't been hitting all that well have gotten hits in key spots. A-Rod has a grand total of 4 hits but all 4 hits are extra base hits(including 1 homerun) and he has 6 R'sBI(in case anyone wonders, I say R'sBI because it's runs batted in and not run batted in's). Only 2 Yankees have been hitting consistently and that's Damon and Jeter. Everyone else has been fair to horrible. 4 regular starters are hitting under .200.

The Phils by contrast haven't been hitting either. Howard is trying to set an unreachable record for striking out in a World Series(12 so far) and the Phillies as a team have struck out 43 times(Yanks, 45) but Howard and Ibanez have combined for half of those. We also aren't getting anything from Rollins and Victorino. Last night they finally got on base in front of Utley and he delivered. Speaking of which, Utley is killing the Yankees when he hits the ball. He has 6 hits: 1 double and 5 HR's. The big difference is that the Phils don't have anyone who's been hitting consistently like Jeter and Damon and that's been the difference. I do believe that if the series goes 7 games, game 7 is anybody's ballgame as CC will be pitching his 3rd game in 7 days. I'm hoping the Phils win game 6 because if they do, they'll somewhat save face win or lose game 7.

If your team loses take it like a man and stop with the Umps are against us or they breaks always go the other way! Did the breaks go the other way in game 1 when Lee put his hand up and the ball fell into his glove! Did they go the other way when Howard did that spectacular belly flop at home in game 4 and never toched the plate, or how about last nite! Your s/s does not like to let his dainty feet touch the bag on DPs, we all saw it except the Ump. Stop biching and moaning and take it!

Now that the yanks screwed themselves with a 3 man rotation their pitcher tomorrow is working on 3 nights rest and CC will have to pitch again with 3 days rest. Now if pedro pitches like he did in game 2 and GET SOME DAMN run support it will go to game 7. The yanks are not beating us things like Ryan striking out 12 times are.

I'm hoping the Phils win game 6 because if they do, they'll somewhat save face win or lose game 7.

In this day and age it is hard to predict how long a player will stay with his team. If the Phils fall out of contention as a team when he becomes a free agent he might want to move. hard to say. I know I hope Pujols stays with the Cardinals for life but you have to face the reality of today. Looking at the Phils roster, if I had to choose a "franchise player" at this time it is Utley hands down. Howard might be a formidable power threat but he can be neutralized if you don't throw him mistakes. In the case of Utley any strike is a mistake :D

As for breaks, hey, I am not biased. I am not impressed with the umpiring this year. But I do't think it has favored one side over the other and it has not caused any game to be decided by a mistake IMO. The series is where it should be based on play.

As for you having slumping hitters credit Yankees pitching. As the Yanks should credit Phils pitching for shutting Texiera and Cano down. Both are quality productive hitters and they are also not doing jack.

It is my opinion this next game will decide it. I don't think either starter is going to be dominant and back in NY with Matsui in the lineup I expect the Yanks to outhit and out bullpen the Phils. Series in 6.

But - ya never know ;)

The umpires and managers go over the ground rules before every game. Just to let you know, the groud rules at CBP were that any ball that struck those cameras was going to be a home run. They didn't decide what the call should be on the spot. Did you notice how quickly they reviewed it? Once they saw it definitely hit the camera, it was ruled a home run, just like they discussed in the ground rules.

The Yankees are good but they are very beatable. The Twins and the Angels should have beat them. The only reason the Phillies didn't win this in four is because they aren't hitting or they aren't hitting at the right time.
