    Re: Game Thread 3: Red Sox at Yankees

    The difference tonight is the pitching matchup. Pettitte is far superior to Dempster.  Ryan just doesn't have the stuff to pitch in the A.L.   This was very predictable.

    Already 3-0. Not surprising. Dumpster is going to do this all year for us.

    Dempster has a ton of K's it is surpising he gave up 3 runs.

    First mistake by Farrell. Should have walked Overbay and went after Cervelli. Percentage move.  We paid the price.



    Percentages be damned.  The day Farrell has his starter pitch around Lyle Overbay in the second inning, that is the day I start to question his approach.

    Re: Game Thread 3: Red Sox at Yankees

    I haven't seen much of the game yet but Dempster hasn't looked that bad to me. Is he getting any calls? Pettite always gets everything anywhere near the plate. It's the last game of the series. The league and the umps know it's better for baseball if the Yanks don't get swept.

    Sorry, I'm tainted. I think there is an ump bias in such situations. Home opening series. Flagship franchise. Etc.

    I don't expect us to win this game. If we do it will be because we score a bunch of runs because Dempster is not going to get many calls IMO.

    This game will be a good early test to see what this team is made of.  Are they content to leave the Bronx winning the series 2-1 or a they going to battle back and try to win?

    Chavez had the only real hit, the Overbay two out two rbi single was a weak fly off the end of the bat, the homer was in the first row in right, an out in any other park; he's pitched better than the 3 runs indicate.

    Why ?  Overbay is lefthanded. And always more dangerous than Cervelli. What is wrong with pitching around him in any inning ?  Does Overbay have a better chance of getting a hit than Cervelli , or not ? Of course he does. And , sure enough , he did.

    FWIW, I am going to wait an inning or two at the very least before I put the nail in the coffin on Dempster's foray into the AL East.  I agree with Prospects insofar as i don't think he is pitching so poorly.  And he has made his bones on battling, eating innings.  If he can lock it down for another 2 or 3 innings, a solo shot and mini-rally aren't really so egregious.

    Sure, but its not like Overbay is that dangerous at this stage of his career.  At this juncture of the game, I am going to not waste pitches from my starter.  There are two outs.  I don't know.  I understand your point.  I just don't think there are many managers who would issue that walk that early in the game in that situation.

    Ryan is around the plate, he doesn't really know the strike zone yet. If he goes 5 tonight thats great.

    It's a debatable point.  If you put Overbay on, a walk brings home a run.  I certainly see your point but I don't think it's a clearcut managerial decision.

    What are you talking about?  I know all i need to know by the last three innings. I mean If he were pitching a shut out through three it would mean he was going to win the Cy Young..

    Right?

    Late in the game , in that situation , I think most managers would walk Overbay and pitch to Cervelli. To me , it shouldn't matter that it is only the second inning.  The game can be lost in any inning.

    I agree.  Game can be lost anytime.  I don't agree that intentional walks/pitch arounds do not weigh differently at different junctures of the game.  I value those 4-6 pitches from my starter more than the risk of Lyle Overbay getting a hit at that juncture.  I am not dismissing your view at all.  It is valid.  i just don't agree that it doesn't matter that it was only the second inning.
