    Amazing all the backbiting totally unrelated to the OP.

    Jete,

    A painful thread for us in the RSN.  I like our three starters for this series, but don't at all like our hitting to date.  Last year we struggled a little against lefties, and this year it's righties--but really righties and lefties.  I will watch the games, but expect them to be unpleasant reminders and unhappy season to date.

    hey max!!...i hear you, tho we aren't exactly knocking the cover off the ball either, and Tanaka aside, not getting a bunch of Koufaxian performances, the pitching matchups don't look too good, Saturday is about a wash..but despite the issues the Yanks have played pretty well against you guys so far...i'll still manage to enjoy the games..well, Friday and Saturday....the deathmarch(Sunday night)..not so much

    "Saturday is about a wash." Hey, Jete, how about the SOX give the Yanks Lester for Tanaka? Would you consider that a wash?

    I miss the old days when the sox and yanks would slug it out.  I know some like low scoring games with 1 run wins but I like more action.  The AL is starting to look like the NL in some ways zzzzzzzzz

    Game 1 to the Yanks 6-0...nice job by Nuno as he pitches 5 scoreless innings, the Yanks offense leads the way with 3 homers..McCann, and back to back by Gardner and Johnson..Yanks look to continue their roll as Game 2 pits Jon Lester 8-7/3.14 v. Masahiro Tanaka 11-2/2.11

    Game 2 to the Sox 2-1.....Sox ride the outstanding pitching of Lester and homers early(Ross) and late(Napoli) to the win..a great throwback Yanks/Sox game..Tanaka also pitches great, but sitting on 130 pitches is sent back out(unwisely??) for the 9th and surrenders a homer to Naopli...the turning point i think was Pedroia starting a clutch DP with the Yanks rallying along with pacing the Sox with 3 hits..Sox even the series at 1 apiece Game 3 Sunday night(ESPN..oy!!) pits John Lackey 8-5/3.45 v. Chase Whitley 3-1/4.07

    but sitting on 130 pitches is sent back out(unwisely??)


    not sure if it matters but


    I think it was 9 innings 118 pitches total jeet


    2 less than lester who was terrific for 8inn


    yes it lost the game but I generally don't knock anyone 4 a solo HR


    especially one like that


    while pitch location was the true problem


    others think it was pitch selection


     


     


    Mike Napoli calls Yankees' ace 'an idiot'
    Napoli may not have meant anything by it, but the Yankees surely won’t appreciate him calling their ace an idiot, especially for a national TV audience to hear. It has been a long time since there has been any real hostility between these teams, but you wonder if the Yankees would respond to this with retaliation of some sort.

    Re: Yanks/Sox III

    Jete,

    I agree a good game 2 for the Sox, but don't quite agree on the double play via Pedroia as the key.  In another inning the Yankees had three straight singles but failed to score because the first guy, Gardner, was caught stealing on a great throw by Ross that was well ahead of the runner.  I did not realize Tanaka had thrown so many pitches and entirely agree he had no business out there in the 9th.  Friday night there was no hesitation in pulling the starter in the 6th with two outs and Ortiz on first with a walk.  I might add the Yankees bullpen dominated the Sox Friday night.

    mornin' Zac, my saying unwisely was more question than statment, and thanks for the correction i saw after that i had his PC total wrong, i not knocking him being out there, ftr he shook McCann off twice in that sequence, so i agree about pitch selection..just him being over 100 pitches period made me ask the question..despite that outcome, the kind of Yanks/sox game we've missed for a while

    Zac in all fairness, that's not exactly a true account of the situation. He said it walking into and down the dugout steps, while being met by his teammates.

    NEW YORK -- It might have been the most-welcomed 96-mph heater Mike Napoli has ever seen.


    He got just enough of the offering from Masahiro Tanaka to get it over the wall in right field at Yankee Stadium with two outs in the top of the ninth on Saturday night, snapping a tie and lifting the Red Sox to a badly needed 2-1 victory over their rivals.


    To say Napoli, who had been baffled by Tanaka's nasty splitter for strikeouts in his two previous at-bats, was surprised by the pitch selection would be an understatement.


    "What an idiot! What an idiot!" a gleeful Napoli roared to David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Jake Peavy and others as he ran back into the dugout, the words clearly picked up by the telecast on FOX.


    Napoli wasn't trying to disparage Tanaka. Instead, he was caught up in the moment and thrilled at what he viewed as a surprise gift.


    "Nothing against him," Napoli said. "I was just surprised he didn't try to bury another splitter in the dirt."

    He also said it in his dugout.... do we now have to answer to everything we say in a dugout about an opposing player? Is the word "idiot" now a hate word? The writer wrote a terrible piece.... if this is the way forward than we are truly doomed.


     


    Apparently, B Ken Rosenthal could wait to tweet it out ‏@Ken_Rosenthal


     


    Tweeps pointed out post-game that our cameras caught Napoli saying, "What an idiot," after hitting home run on fastball off Tanaka...


     


    Failing of course, to find out or mention the circumstances. Hey, at least he didn't call him a F*&(in' idiot


    ESPN will spend half of tonight's game talking about it.

    Suspect the Yankees grasp the context and just play the game. Big difference between talking to teammates and showing somebody up.

    Re: Yanks/Sox III

    Thanks for the thread, Jete.  I will more than likely root for the Yankees over the Rays.    I was completely surprised when the Sox took this series, especially getting 8 runs in game 3.  I was almost as surprised that Lackey pitched his second lousy game in a row (but he got the win anyway).   I have to admit I loved watching Ellsbury hit into the double play last night and that he went 3 for 11 with 0 runs scored in this series.  

    I think the Yankees and Sox are very similar this year except that your guys have been the better "gamers," that is, better at winning tough games.  The Yankees have been outscored by 32 runs vs the Sox outscored by 33, but the Yankees are 2 above .500 and the Sox 6 below.  

    On the other hand, the Sox, especially during the John Henry era, have always scored runs, but this year they are not, as in really, really not.  So it's a small miracle that they are only 6 games out--helped of course by the slide by the Jays.
