    Potential Yankee Killers...A's and, if not, the SF Giants

    I am a Sox, Pats (hate NY Giants as much as Yankees) & Celtic(hate Lakers as much as the Yankees)fan first but as I live in SF Bay area I'm a SF Giant Fan, A's & 49ers fan too. Was almost as excited with Giants today as I was with Sox in 2004 winning 4 in a row vs NY as SF too was unprecedented winning in a 5 game series, 3 in opponents' park. Need for A's to also win 3 in a row although it will not be as great a feat as they are on their home field. So, if Yankees get by O's, I want A's to take them out in Div series and, if not, the SF Giants to beat NY in the world series!

    By the way, football I know, but hope Pats fans are rooting for 49ers this Sunday vs NY Giants who beat them in playoffs last year and, of course, beat Pats in their undefeated  season and then last year agan in the super bowl.

    Sorry SF, if the Yankees have to take on the A's and the Giants after they beat Baltimore, Red Sox fans are going to have a miserable winter knowing the New Yorkers have won another WS. Oakland does not have the hitting nor the deep bullpen to beat New York and the Giants blow hot and cold.  Now I would love nothing better than to see the A's keep the Yankees out of the WS, but I think Detroit would have a better chance, and, in fact, I do not want to see the Yankees in the WS at all.

    A little easier for me J BAY since I live in Southern California, but I  think Detroit put themselves in a rut by their inability to close the show last night.  The A's are hot and on a roll but they are not as talented as the Tigers.  I would have much confidence in the  Tigers taking on the Yankees than the Oaklanders but the  Tigers have to take care of business tonight.  I assume to live in the Boston area.  Load up on coffee if you drink the stuff.

    What did I tell you about the Reds J? They lost that series in game three because they simply cant hit the ball. Ive been saying that all summer, and once they lost game three--with the injury to Cueto--the whole thing unfolded exactly like common sense said it would. I can take losing with dignity, but these choke artists--the Sox last year and now the Reds--are not worth watching. If NYY and Stl both go to the series, I will not watch it either.

    Jaybay & Seabeachfred...I agree with you that I think Detroit has a better chance than the A's to beat the Yankees but I am emotionally as a fan rooting for the A's. But, and I don't have the stats but off the top of my head I don't think Cabrera has any RBIs and Prince Fielder hasn't done much better. So, they could get hot vs NY. And, of course, Verlander is a good bet to win 2 games and maybe 3 if there are some(Spahn & Sain) rainouts.

    I also like the A's because of Sox alumni, Crisp, Reddick (32HRs)...monday morning QB I know but I'd rather have kept him that getting Bailey and then there is Moss & Kottarus.

    SF Giants definitely can't match Yankees offense as theirs is probably the toughest 9 of any team in baseball...but, SF's pitching is better I think !

    PS---I like Girardi and I am sorry his Dad passed and especially during these playoffs !!!

    Sorry about the Reds, exam. Thought they'd bounce back. It's why they play the games and cant count any team out until they've recorded 27 outs. Washington walked off with a HR in the bottom of the ninth by jason Werth. It's just baseball. If and when someone, anyone can explain it, let me know. It's what makes it great and the best of all the sports, IMO.

    Thats a stretch. I doubt Girardi cares that its now public, or that the announcement of it will motivate the team any more tonight than it did last night. If you win the series it will be because Baltimore is lousy in the PS.
