Have you seen the pitching matchups? Yanks are gonna get shut down. And the O's score runs and play aggresive baseball, something the Twins haven't done for yonks.
Yeah I saw the pitching mathups and they are tough..... I'm giving them a chance because you just never know whats going to happen...... Gonzalez will be working on two extra days of rest to start this series....... He has a 3.77 ERA in 14 starts...... Again you play who is on the schedule.....

I believe derek did in a game I went to. And got a hit. Big deal. Its what happens now that counts. From what I read nunez doing ok. Both better then anything the yanks have on board. No idea who goes when they come back. Guess away.
The Luis Cruz gets cancelled....

After that you can only guess..Jeter and Arod only if healthy project as DHs and part time field players...Hafner's the logical one to go...but if they can't get a bite on him on the trade market and they won't at the deadline...they have to release him because he won't go down...and thats a gamble given your 2 injured guys might not finish the season anyway...

Nunez looks like he's doing it right AA for a few then the step up, Arod seems to be on that track as well, Granderson hasn't swung a bat on dry land so he's mid-late August....

And you can't say that Jeter is better in the field than anyone they have now because he hasn't been playing in the field...

Arod let up 2 infield singles off bunts in A ball...you want that repeted on the left side in the majors with those 2 standing next to eachother?

It would be downright cruel to them and to Wells who is a lousy fielder behind them.

For the last time I was only busting balls because the 2 players you mentioned (negatively I might add) won the game for the Sox.
Sox own the Angels. The Angels are on a hot streak though. Sox still playing .550 ball on the road, so not a worry.
Doubront always has one bad inning per start, if he can reduce the damage and it comes early then its all good, if its late then the pen takes it on the chin.
It's not negative when it's the truth lol....... Hey I tip my hat to him for pitching.well....... I give credit when it's due......

Angles have been playing better as of late...... Might be tough for the Sox bats tonight against Wilson...... He has a 2.85 ERA in 20 career appearances against the Red Sox..... The left-hander is 8-5 with a 3.63 ERA in 17 starts this season. He's been much better at Angel Stadium than on the road, going 4-2 with a 2.65 ERA in eight starts at home.........

My point on Jeter is: he hasn't done any field work per say, hasn't faced anything but simulated game pitchers and is well out of game shape...to start him at the AAA level is foolish and smacks of a 'hurry up' given Nix grade 2 hammy...
Didn't they learn their lesson with Youk and Teixi about rushing players?
I wouldn't be surprised if Jeter tags out in AAA and never gets a game in the Bronx this year...
If the prospects of becoming sellers is on the Yanks brass' radar and it has to be...then the hail mary to Jeter is one way of closing the books on fans who will scream if they sell before the return of Jeter and Arod which is the 'plan' the Yanks sold you all season long.
Now that may be blunt, but its honest, and you may not agree or may not want it to be true but it very well may be reality.
Wow you're really going out on a limb....lol.

They won't win today. If they do, well thats good for them but they won't win the series.

I probably err in saying 'won't win today' and say 'shouldn't win today'

but I said it so I'll take the shots if I'm wrong

Mickie was treated like crap in the wwe as was gail kim. Both great wrestlers.
It would be great if the yanks could take 2 of 3. And the twins wins counted. Hell, they could have lost.
Nova, Andy and Hughes...... Could be 2 of 3..... Nova I think will pitch great especially at home....... Which Andy and Hughes we will get despite being at home lol.....

Bats have to be ready going up against Gonzalez, Tillman and Hammel...... Gonzalez may be even tougher than Tillman with 2 days rest, but never know what can happen..... I know this is not the Twins, but I always give them a chance despite what is said and what team is next......

Close the book on jeter? Huh? I told you they don't give him his big contract next year. You argued it and said yes. This was when he was hurt. What was it you called it a legacy one?
Arod? If they close the book on him I am fine.

I meant close the book on him this season, I think they will give him a swansong contract so he can get his rocking chairs and oil paintings in pinstripes like Mo...

Who knows maybe he pulls a Chipper Jones and walks away leaving us all wondering...

I think 500 is more realistic...lose the Os series ...split with KC over 4...then the Twins get some payback and at least take a game...might even be 2...

Yeah well this isn't the best Yankee team we've seen in a while but they're still playing the Yankees at home and they better be ready for us. As bad as this is for a Yankee team they can kick the snot out of the O's if they don't bring their "A" game.

Sox own the Angels on both coasts I'd say 2-1 there...they take 2-3 against SEA if they don't sweep, the big ball park plays to their style of hitting...then cage fight with the As...all comes down to Sox pen v OAK starters...whichever one blinks loses the series...

Maybe in years gone by but the Yanks are 3-6 and been outscored 39-30 by the Os this year...kinda a rabbits foot matchup and the O's got a bigger one...

Of course you think thats realistic, that because you hate the yankees and lack any objectivity.
