    The Orioles are the best team in the American League. Last time I said that they lost a few games in a row.

    What a crappy game. Ridiculously lousy defense, crap hitting, and girardi pulling joba after 6 pitches then leaving drob in for 2 innings. Frustrating all around.

    Absolutely!

    (80-62) Still tied with Baltimore and man, we were lucky. RISP 0 for 13. If it wasn't for the long ball, we would have lost another one. Better get healthy start driving in runs if they expect to make the playoffs.

    The Yankees have maintained at least a share of first place every day since June 11. In the past nine days, though, they've fallen into a tie with the Orioles four separate times after having been alone in first place since June 12.

    Only 20 games left.

    I know I was sweating with Ellsbury up. He is unbelievable against the Yanks, I was worried about another walkoff hit to win a game from him. But yeah we escaped.

    A clutch has largely (not entirely) been shown to be the result of largely fans' imaginations rather than performance... ;)

    Ellsberg figure this year :

    None on: .258/.290/.374
    Risp: .254/.318/.322
    Bases loaded: .000/.333/.000
    Risp/2 outs: .214/.267/.286

    He's almost anti-clutch this year if you believe in those things...

    As for great when needs to be, he needed to be last night... ;)

    I love real numbers... :cool:

    And when the Sox are ahead, he bats .363/.367/.431
    When behind:
    .243/.296/.355

    Not only is he anti-clutch this year, he's a stat padder! Ha!

    (81-62) Hughes and the bullpen shutout the Sox at Fenway to keep pace with the Orioles. A miserable RISP 2 for 34 in the last three games. A three game set with the Rays starts tonight. Sabathia vs. Price.

    (81-63) Still tied with the Orioles due to their loss in Oakland. Tampa is three games behind. This was an opportunity with the Ace on the hill, but we just could not get it done. RISP was 1 for 6 and the long ball only supplied three of the scores. Nova is on the hill today.

    (82-63) Nova gets a win his first game back. A couple of long balls, Jeter & A-Rod with RBI's, and Soriano with the save. Let's see what Baltimore does tonight.

    (83-63) Still one game up with tonight off. Kind of nice to see some small ball mixed with the long ball yesterday. Pettitte returns tomorrow. Let's see how far a 70 pitch maximum will take us.

    (83-63) Rain spoiled the return of Andy Pettitte last night. Hence, a day/night double header today.

    (85-63) Two wins yesterday puts the Bombers a half a game ahead. Pettitte gave 5 solid innings in his return and Ichiro comes through big time. Let's hope this roll continues with fourteen games to go. Hughes on the hill tonight.

    (86-63) A big night offensively at the stadium results in a sweep of the Jays and a one game lead over Baltimore. Hughes goes to 16-12 for the season. Swisher comes through for tenth team Grand Slam this season. Oakland is in town for the weekend.

    (87-63) It was a pitchers duel last night with a one run lead going into the ninth. Oakland tied it up with a homerun, but Martin responded in the tenth with walk off long ball for another win. C.C. did a great job(3 hits 2 walks,11 K's over 8 shutout innings), but was denied a victory. Nova on the hill next.

    Pay back for the sweep and walkoffs from July.

    (88-63) A 14 inning game and it came down to an E3 to score Ichiro with two outs. Both teams sent 9 pitchers to the hill.
