OT Yankee playoff thread

Tigers in the first round. I hate to admit I was hoping we'd play them over the Twins but I kinda was...


All signs point towards this being a short series win for the Yankees which makes me very nervous......Remember the only two tiger wins againts the Yankees came on days Mariano couldn't pitch! I think we pretty much blew them out every other game we played againts them..

I hate the Sheffield move to first base and I hate the fact that Melky is probably coming off the bench. The pitching staff has zero depth and if one of Wang or Mussina gets bombed in the first two games we could easily find ourselves with our backs againts the wall..

However I predict Yankees in 4...

I'll go with you one this one, SOS.

Detroit is coming off of being swept by the worst team in the league, in Kansas City. Not only did they lose 3 straight to them, they lost the division, and they're reeling right now. Their morale has to be at the bottom of the barrel right now, especially with the way they lost todays game, being up 6-0, and losing 10-8.

The inexperience factor will come into play as well here. Detroit's young rotation may be good, but aside from Rogers, the elder statesman, none of them have ever pitched in the playoffs.

Yanks in 4, Detroit has no momentum, and the Yanks for the most part are well-rested.

Hopefully we can sweep them, and watch as Minnesota and Oakland smash the crap out of each other, thus tiring the winner out, and weakening them for us.

That sounds pretty similar to the way the Rangers ended last year and we all know how that turned out.

Let's Go Yanks!

Was hoping for the same thing SOS. The Twins are hot and we match much better vs the Tigers in a five game series. I will be going to game 5 if there is one. I know it's time for hockey, but I also love baseball and its time for playoffs! Go Yanks!

Yankees schedule: Detroit leads series 2-1

Game 1: Yankees 8 Detroit 4

Game 2: Detroit 4 Yankees 3

Game 3: Detroit 6 Yankees 0

Game 4: Saturday October 7, 4pm, FOX
Yankees (Wright) @ Detroit (Bonderman)

Game 5 if nec.: Sunday October 8, 7:30, FOX
Detroit @ Yankees

I was at the game today for my birthday. Bernie Williams was manager and then came into the game to pinch hit and hit a double. Jeter said that he was selfish for pinch-hitting himself

I have to agree that I wanted the Tigers too. Lets be honest, this team has little to no playoff experience and we OWNED them this year. The only time they beat us was two games that Rivera was unable to save.

I think we can win this series easily. Then again, I said the same thing in 2002 against the Angels and what happened. So we have to be somewhat careful.

If the bats are hot there no reason they cant beat them like they idd all year. What scares me a bit is if it does go for the yanks have Wright on the hill and i dont like that, but if they take care of business early hopefully they wont even get there

Time for AROD to become a hero or more of a goat.

I hate talking about ARod, about as much as I hate hearing about T.O.

Who knows what's going to become of him, but, Ill say this much... I think an awful lot of his future reputation rests on what's done this year.

I hope the Yankees aren't taking the Tigers lightly. They won 95 games this year for a reason.

With that said, this team is NOT the 2002 Angels. The 2002 Angels had a buzz saw offense that kept getting on base. The Tigers are a horrible On Base Percentage team filled with free swingers. The Angels had a young closer by the name of Fransisco Rodriguez, the Tigers have a washed up vet in Todd Jones.

And then there is the whole thing about having Kenny Rogers pitch in a post season game. Both Met and Yankee fans know what I'm talking about.

Go into game 1 with a killer instinct and this series will not see game 4.

The Tigers remind me of last season's Rangers.Detroit was in first place for 4-5 months until the last day of the season

Washed up vet? The guy had 37 saves and an ERA under 4. Not amazing numbers, but very servicable and certainly not "washed up" type of numbers. In addition, they have some very good other relievers (Zumaya, Walker, Rodney, etc).

Well hes had good numbers vs the Tigers this year, he eats their pitching up so everything is right there for the taking.

They had a good record against the Tigers when the Tigers pitching staff was still going on all cylinders, and those pitchers tanks seem to be empty. I think the Yanks will win in 4(knock on wood of course).

Not facing Santana twice in a 5 game series is the best that the Yankees could have hoped for.
If the starters falter, they have to hope to be like the Angles when they won it all. Club the opposing starters and hope that your bullpen is superior.

Happy late birthday...

As for Detroit, they don't even have a milligram of the momentum that the Angels had in 02. That team got hot at the right time. Same thing with Florida in 03...

Rogers is terrible in the postseason, I've seen it from both NY sides. I've seen him be downright terrible with the Yanks, and I saw him walk in the winning run for Atlanta in the 99 NLCS as a Met.

Detroit is a team that won 95 games because they got to face the Royals 19 times. The Yankees would have been at over 110 if they got to face Kansas City almost 20 times.

Just imagine if they had Liriano healthy... god that would be scary.

my two jackass uncles conference called me [one's in Dallas, the other in NY] to discuss the game, while it was on... Abreu drove a few in, and I laughed, cuz I remember when we snagged him, some people were dogging him, cuz of his last few months in Philly... so I said "I cant believe we got that guy for a bag of baseballs" hahah... stole the bag o pucks joke... it was good.

I'll freely admit I am an ARod fan and feel bad for the guy.

I think the clutch thing is overrated and I think it's another typical example of the NY media especially driving a story. They're like Pitbulls, once they get onto something they just never let it go.

No matter what he does he'll never win for some people. If he doesn't get into trouble and actually plays with a degree of class, he's obviously being phoney and needs to analyzed. If he goes 2-4 it's not enough because he didn't hit two HR's.

When a guy who did steroids and is batting .250 on the year starts opening his mouth, I really have to question who the "bad guy" is in these situations.

.290 with 35 hr's in an off year. Just hope it's not one of those things where people don't realize what they've got till it's gone.

Off year aside ARod is an AL mvp candidate just about every other year who can put up an amazing .310, 45 HR, 20 SB line. But of course what we'll here tomorrow is how he went 1-4 and not a peep about Matsui or Sheff going a combined 1 for 8.

The whole ARod situation continues to help me understand why so many athletes I worked with have such a negative opinion about NY. NY'ers really have a tendency to not help their cause with things sometimes. And as a native NY'er that pains me to say.

Go Yankees and go ARod.
