    Red Sox have no body to blame except themselves--- they put themselves in this situation.  Quit cryin about the Yankees laying down--- that is BS.  The whining on this board is embarassing to all true Red Sox fans.

    I suspect the New York Yankees would rather face the beleaguered Red Sox pitching staff than the stellar staff of the Tampa Bay Rays in the postseason.

    The Yankees are merely giving their regulars a well-deserved rest.

    But Yankees may still rather to face Boston especially against Boston's pitching staffs.  Tampa pitching staffs may be able to shut down the well rested Yankees offense line up!!!

    The Yanks have to beat either Texas or Detroit first. Have you all forgotten that there are those two other teams?

    The yankees will be running out their regular offense in preparation for the playoffs. They are going to get 6 innings out of them and hopefully they can get to Price.
    This is the Yankees final tune up game before the playoffs and they get to face and ace pitcher in Price. I have a feeling the Yankees would like to put a few in the seats and gain a little confidence before the playoffs.

    I also don't see the Yankees losing 4 in a row to end the season while getting swept by the Rays.
    Here's hoping!

    Texas vs Detroit in the second round would let alot of you know how foolish you sound.  Nothing in round two is guaranteed.  NY owe their fans the best possible line up for game one of the playoffs.  If they are concerned with anything else they are fools, but with the AL's best record I don't think that's the case.
    The Rays haven't been surging or lights out, they scare no one but Sox fans.  The Sox have simply let this happen.  Are there no mirrors in Beantown?

    Remember the Yanks had their "B" squad playing most of that game.

    Tampa on a roll?  no not at all they 16-10 for the month. Do not confuse yourselves Red Sox fan, the only reason that the Rays are going to be in the Playoffs is because of a Historic Collapse by the Red Sox.  You are getting mad because the Red Sox need the Yankees help, it is not going to come.  The Red Sox are not a playoff worthy team.  Deal with it.

    [QUOTE]Yankees never do their homework about which team that they rather to play against.  Worst part, they do not know who they will play against in the first round.  So they are probably busy scouting both Detriot and Texas right now before worry about who is their next opponent in the second round.  Who know that Boston or Tampa could be knock out in the first round.  Maybe that is what the Yankees rather to see!!! Come on, Yankees have been playing the same way since they clinched the division title.   It is all Boston's fault for failing to sweep the Yankees or failing to win the first game of the Boston/Baltimore series!! Had they won the monday game, and win tonite, we would not all be talking about this!! Stop blaming the Yankees, blame Boston first!!

    Regardless of whether the NYY 'tanked' or not, all the RS had to do was win.

    Period.

    Re: Yanks might regret letting Tampa off

    Is it not evident that the Yankees would be playing and pitching a full and much different complement of starters, if they were in the shoes of Tampa Bay or Boston?

    Consider the line-ups and management of pitchers since New York clinched home field advantage.  Are they lying down?  No, the players on the field want to win; however, following the playoff birth, then the Eastern division crown, and lastly the stake to home field advantage through the American League playoffs - their regular season goals were realized and, as such, ended.

    For the Yankees, this was the beginning of their post-season push, which means getting players healthy, providing rest to key players, and evaluating the last few positions for the playoff roster, all the while attempting to keep the team sharp with as little deviation to routine as possible. 

    The Yankees are not trying to lose, but they are not pulling out all the stops to win either.  They are doing what they should do.  Playing hard on the field, while focusing on their ultimate goal of getting to another World Series.

    How could Boston have kept Red Sox fans from worrying about the Yankees and their decisions of late?  Win a series against an opponent, namely the Orioles.

    Last week the Yankees beat them 3 of 4 when the games still mattered to the Yankees.  Yes the Rays have a better pitching staff than the RS, (who doesn't), but they haven't exactly been a team on a mission this September.   The only reason they are still in it is because the RS completly tanked.  Had the RS played merely .500 ball in September the race is over and both the Yankees and RS are resting their regulars and setting their rotations.  And, if they meet the Rays it won't be in a short series.  The Tigers first, then whoever; Texas, the Rays, .. hey maybe even the RS.  Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.

    This post is kinda sad. All else fails just blame the Yankees. To be honest though some of you guys are silly. First they are an old team, then you complain when this "old" team rest some of its players. Just can't win.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Yanks might regret letting Tampa off : You guys don't get it. The 4 teams that make the playoffs will all be dangerous. The Yankees don't care about matchups. Detroit, Texas, Tampa, Boston can all beat the Yankees in a series...and vice versa the Yankees can all beat them. So they only thing the Yankees are concerned about is resting their players enough to get them ready for the playoffs but not too much where they get rusty. So each game they have a handful of regulars who play and a handful of regulars who don't  I am sure that Cash and Girardi are also using these games to finalize their playoff roster based on who is playing well etc. Winning the division early has it's advantages and this is one of them

     Great post Pesk !! Now if only you could forward that to the Red Sox front office maybe they would have sent your Boy Tito better instructions for handling this team !!

    I'm pretty sure it was a "to old" team

    Notwithstanding looking to another team to bear some sort of responsibility for getting the RS into the postseason.  Little light in the shoes.

    Sox still control their own fate, period.  Doesn't matter what the Yankees do.  Sox have to win today, and if needed, win tomorrow.   That is all she wrote.

    In all honesty, Francona would have spot rested players and and used minor leaguers if he were in the same position.   The NYY have had everything wrapped up for days and have no reason to chance injuries.    After tonight they go to NY and have full workouts and prepare for the ALDS.

    Chances are slim that two AL East teams will meet in the American League Championship Series. The Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers are formidable foes.

    Exactly! The Yankees are not the only team Boston needs to focus on. How about winning this game against the Orioles first?

    true but the chances are nill for two teams from the central and west, so handicapping the AL the odds of an all AL East ALCS is certainly not out of the question...I see the AL as having 6 teams that are capable of besting one another in a short series...The Sox and Rays match up pretty well with either the Rangers or the Tigers...The Yanks are probably the favorites if Nova can continue to pitch as has he has all year, when the glare of the post season is upon him...remember he's a pitch to contact guy and typically they don't fare well in the post season...

    Which might be a fomality once they reach the WS if the Phillies previal in the NL...where the Brewers are the only club I see that can match up with them...
