To bad tomorrows game is the one that counts most. No way Yanks lose four straigt, and closers will be fresh.

The play at first was A-Rod not running to first base, just blatantly slapping the ball from Arroyo's glove. Granted, I believe that Jeter should have been given 2nd, but what A-Rod did was obviously interference.


Harold Reynolds must have just read your post. He just explained it well on SportsCenter almost exactly like that. Makes sense to me, too.

Replace four with three, and you would've said the same thing on Sunday.

I believe. ;-D

yanks are a bunch of overpaid babies. Come on, arod clearly slapped the ball outta the arroyo's glove. You can do that at the plate either, so you cant really compare the two. I personally think its great when the umps make an effort to get the call right.

I have to give props to two groups. First, obviously the Red Sox for doing something no one has ever done in MLB postseason history. To come back from 0-3 to 3-3 has never been done in 25 previous attempts. If they win the next game, it will be the biggest ever. They could either make it the curse-breaker, or make it look even more deadly if they were to lose to the NL champion. :-o

Secondly, you have to praise the umpires. They all huddled together both times to look at calls they had made, and they made the correction both times - both of which were right.

I thought the Yanks fans throwing stuff on the field was funny, but it's kinda dangerous. We shouldn't have to put riot police on the field for baseball games. I was hoping we were a little more civilized than what happens at some soccer games.

Agree with all.

I give big props to the Sox, too. But....it might almost be better for them to lose to the Yanks now.....then get beat by the wild-card, Rocket-led 'Stros in the WS. That is really going to sting. For a long time.

Definately. The umps did a great job and the fans of the yanks are disgraceful. The sad thing is its about 100 out of 45000 people doing this. Seeing riot police on the field just gives all yankees fans a bad name.
