Joe Buck will commentate both Giants games tomorrow (Super Bowl Champs + NL West champs). Apparently, he's taking a cable car from 'Stick to AT&T.

He coulda done this in 2004 when Pats-Jets played in same area as Bos-NYY, but didn't. I'm sure FOX regretted that ever since...

I didn't think the Tiggers would get past Oakland, so they have surprised me. I'm not a fan of anything from Detroit, but it's impossible for me to root for the Yankees.

When I was growing up the Yankees always managed to get by the Sox when the Sox had some good teams.

I have to hold my nose and say go Tigers. At least until the Series if the Cards win the NL. Then it's go Cards!

Yep. Swisher let a ball drop two feet in front of him earlier in the game that scored Cabrera. The ball was catchable with a dive.

And several Swisher muck-ups as well. The only thing better would have been if the Tigers also lost.

I'm thinking that, too. With Verlander on the mound in Game 3 you almost have to look at tonight's game as a must win. The Yankee offense was already stagnant even with Jeter due to the lack of production from Texeira, Cano, Rodriguez and Swisher. In truth, if it wasn't for the unanticipated heroics of Ibanez they'd have gotten knocked out by the O's.

ESPN.com has a story up now that the Yankees still have available tickets for game #2 of the ALCS.

Guess they have bad fans.....

Swisher ALWAYS finds a way to annoy. It's just his nature I guess.

There's only 2 ways a team with that big of a following can see issues with attendance,

1. Suck so bad that the fans have had enough (Cubs)

2. Price the average fan out of your stadium (Yankees)

I realize just about all of the regular position players (with the exception of Ichiro and Martin) have really stunk for the Yankees this postseason. Their pitching has really done well, also if Baltimore wasn't trying to hit 6 run homers in every at-bat, they would be playing in this series instead.

Swisher has been the worst Yankee in these playoffs. And that's saying something. He is a horse**** player.

Girardi should give Brett Gardner a chance.
