Now its RJ'S turn

Its the big unit's second chance- he was in the same spot last year and blew it, so we hav to hope that kenny small town rogers comes up smaller.

That was basically...

the headline Edge...A-Rod failing (not so much the one at bat, but three K's and a pop up, going 0-4 and now 1-8). Secondarily was Johnson, who already has pressure mounting on him (and who seems to play well on a lot of rest). And tertiary was Mussina, who I didn't think had his best stuff and hasn't since June. Sometimes your pitching needs to hold two run leads and you have to win a game 3-1 or 3-2.

Not surprising.

They'll run the guy out of town, the Yankees will end up with a inferior player and the news writers will complain.

It's all about power, because for journalists it certainly isn't about the money.

This is so frustrating to watch...

It's far from over but they are playing so tight right now it's hard to watch this...

It's easy to be a spectator and second guess but Torre did some head scratching things with this lineup. Since Sheffield came back in late September this team hasn't looked right for any stretch of time........

I don't blame Shef but the chemistry of this team doesn't seem right..

I've been pro-Arod throughout but it MIGHT be best for him to move on from this team and New York City. Forget the Yankees for a second but Arod might need the change for his own psyche...

Cya ARod. Bye Sheff.

Maybe Hughes pitches next year, and we get people that can hit under pressure. This is a GD embarassment.

Rogers pitched the game of his life tonight. I really thought the Yankees were going to clobber him having heard their career statistics against him (except for Sheffield who was out of the lineup). You can't blame Johnson because he was pitching with the hernia and he's 41 years old. This team just couldn't score at all tonight.

This is why you need to win the two games at home when you have home field advantage.

The minute you split in your home stadium/arena you've put the pressure on yourself and taken it off the other team.

For all the talk about ARod, the one whose really done is Johnson. He's been done for two years now and he's twice as done now.

The Yankees shouldn't be losing to Detroit, but they'll have no one to blame but themselves if they do.

If Detroit beats this team, they deserve every bit of praise they get.

As for Torre, he's done a lot of things that have made me scratch my head over the years. Sadly I've often understood why his record was what it was before coming here.

And with this line up there is no excuse to not even get 1 run.

Tomorrow is huge, I don't know if my nerves are up for it.

It does make you think. I mean, since their last World Series victory in 2000, they've still made the playoffs every year as a dominant regular season team with the league's highest payroll, yet no more championships. And what are the constants throughout those years? Mariano, Jeter, Bernie, Posada. And TORRE. I think it's time for a big shakeup in the Bronx, starting with the manager. I'm not saying trade Jeter or Rivera, but I think there are a lot of guys on that Yankees team who are there more for the money than for the chance to win a World Series.

Frustrating to watch the team go down. It equals one thing- Pitching. In the playoffs the team that pitches will win, always did. We don't really have it, they do. Jeez, F'in Kenny Rogers, but his curve fell of the table, looked pretty unhittable. In sports, when it goes wrong you just lose. GS should take a look at the pitching staff and keep grooming good younger home grown players, that is how the team started to win again in the early 90's. In 03, I would have begged Clemens, not signed Johnson, jmho, but I'm no major league GM. Luck for game 4...

The bats have to wake up. I really feel that Arods time as a Yankee is on the line today and tomorrow if there is a game. If we don't win today and tomorrow this is going to just be painful, worse than last year and almost as bad as the year before. And as hte poster above said, the playoffs is about pitching. If our line up isnt going to produce 6 runs in a playoff game like it can we are going to need 7 strong innings from a starter. 5 runs in 6 innings from randy isn't acceptable like it sometimes is in the regular season with this team.

And Giambi is benched as well.

If the Yankees lose today and Arod is awful again, I can't see anyway he can stick around the Bronx anymore, I know he's a got a real solid no-trade clause but he would have to be sadistic to want to put himself through a year that would probably be worse than the one he just went through.

One of these days the Yankees will realize that Pitching is much much much more important than hitting. And good pitching can shut down great hitting any day of the week.

The Yankees knew this a long time ago, their dynasty was built on pitching. These days good pitching is hard to find and good pitchers who want to come to a pressure packed city is even harder to find. At least we know the Yankees don't stand idle. When they can't acquire pitching, they acquire hitting.

We were lucky to have guys like Pettitte, Clemens, El Duque, Stanton, Nelson, etc.

Tigers are teeing off of Wright now. Pitching, pitching, pitching.

Heads will undoubtly roll after this game today. Torre probably gone, Rodriguez gone, Sheffield gone, maybe they can buy out Giambi somehow. There will be a lot of changes, and you know the Yankees will go hard after Zito, and we'll see if they pick up Mussina.
