    Girardi said Hughes was available in the pen before the game, due to their starter excess (LOL, if you consider Burnett a viable starter; we know he's good with the cream pies)

    Jbay, this could possibly show a slight, just slight psychological vulnerablility in NYY because of the Sox dominance of them this year. The only bad thing about this is that it's tough to dominate a team like this in the regular season, and then do it again in the postseason. (talk to the 08 Angels) I hope we don't have to face NYY in the playoffs, be too easy to get revenge.

    Eh. They won the series and that's all I really ever hope for against most teams. Keep taking 2 out of 3 (3-4) and I'm happy.

    I fervently hope not jbay. Perish the thought, your fatigue is getting to you! :-) Welp, been a fun game--sort of--if you take away the three suicide attempts, the hand wringing, and broken valuables in the house. Night all......

    [QUOTE]Valentine said Ellsbury's bunt was "HORRIBLE". But, ahem... it worked dude, couldn't have been that horrible.
    Posted by emp9[/QUOTE]


    it was a poor bunt,
     if nunez doesnt screw it up they wouldve had the out at third.
    and yes it worked, yeah!

    were you watching live, it went right to mariano.
    he would have been out.

    and yes valentine does have the air of "above-ness" or whatever. as do a few people on our board. not the most attractive quality for sure. unpleasant on a regualr basis, yes. but not the same i guess as someone willing to do violence for no reason or for personal gain(as we have so many of thoise in our society, and in our government).

    I went in the bedroom to watch the last inning, no puter there.
    What would you like me to say, it was an exciting win, very exciting. Somewhat like the bunt, it was not a good bunt, but it worked. This was absolutely another "Win In Spite Of Francona".  This is an amazing team.
