Awful call at second.

That just gave the ****ing Tigers a run.

Make that 2 runs.

Well, how many times have the Yanks gotten a bad call to bail them out in the postseason? Baseball has a funny way of evening things out.

I saw an Atlanta sports writer comment on this on twitter, and almost lost my stuff. The gist of it was "Oh look, the Yankees didn't sell out a playoff game. I never want to hear someone rip on Atlanta fans again."

WHAT? yea, you're right. ATL fans can't sell out ANY playoff game(not to mention being the worst sports city in america), but that's the same as the Yankees out pricing their fans this year.

Frustrating as hell to watch this as a Sox fan. It may be presumptuous to think the Sox could have taken the A's in five (I think they had the A's number), but god do the Yankees look beatable right now. What an easy path to the World Series that was completely flushed down the toilet.

Girardi staying classy on the post-game conference by whining about calls from tonight and last night. Get a life. Your team was defeated handily. Swisher missed another catchable ball down the rightfield line by overrunning it at the wall. Maybe he needs glasses or new contacts.

I love the whining about this call at second base. The pitcher gave up a hit. It's not like it's a blown call at first.

It looks like there were three teams the Sox couldn't beat in the post-season:

The Angels (moot point, thanks to the A's)
The Orioles (Defeated by the Yankees)
Detroit (would have been a non-factor if they could have won some games against KC down the stretch)

Nothing Girardi said bothered me.

He can whine all he wants, when you can't score you can't win. Had they gotten the call right they would have lost 1-0.

Also I have read on twitter that Swisher is not responding well to the boos and has taken to warming up in the clubhouse between innings so he won't have to face the fans.

Which is hilarious considering what he deals with is cakewalk to what Reggie Jackson had to endure, which included wearing a helmet in RF because people were throwing C batteries at his head when they were HAPPY with his performance.

Swisher is a bum. He sucks in all facets and deserves to be hammered by the fans and media. Sure, A-Rod, Granderson and Cano all suck with a bat in their hands right now also, but none of those players have taken their struggles at the plate out in the field with them.

And you're absolutely right, that call didn't decide the game. The difference was the Yankees' inability to score even one lousy run against Detroit's No. 4 starter. 1-0 or 3-0. What's the difference?

New York's offense reminds me a little bit of the Sox. The Yankees score with home runs. When they stop hitting home runs, they can't score.

Of course, the Yankees are better at hitting home runs than the Sox, which is why they are in the playoffs while the Sox are not.

There is gonna be a TON of pressure on Sabathia on Tuesday. The way the Yankees are scuffling at the plate CC may be thinking shutout or bust.
