    Santana won the triple crown, so performance wise Wang loses…

    I vote Mauer as baseball’s best bargain

    I’m quickly becoming a huge Nate Robertson fan.

    What’s hilarious is that his postseason numbers are nearly the same as his career numbers. Also, people seem to forget that he single handedly beat the Twins in 2004, or that he went Ape Woolies with the bat in 2000 with the M’s facing elimination.

    53 I always bring up 2000, he was on fire!!!

    The third base coach is like an offensive coordinator in football?

  6. Mr. Egaas on October 3rd, 2006 6:06 pm

    Because the choices he makes will directly relate to the players on the field!

    Check out the stretch by Sheff.

    I wonder if they show that commercial in the New York market?

    Do you mean the “October is time to root against the Yankees” commercial. If so, yes they do.

    Not too far off the mark? Tim, if the catcher has to reach back across his body to catch the ball, it was quite a bit off the mark.

    Does McCarver actually believe the stuff that comes out of his mouth?

    Turned on tv, saw score, turned off tv.

    The Yankees have actually become what people were scared they would be a few years ago. What’s the point of emotionally investing yourself in a sport when one team is playing on such an uneven ground that they can just cherry pick players from other teams whenever they have a weakness…

    The day of the Abreu trade was the day that I stopped caring about this season. My only hope is for a fluke bad week.

    I wonder how often Magglio gets called Maggie after growing the perm out.

  11. JMB on October 3rd, 2006 6:33 pm

    Today I was listening to WFAN (NY’s all sports station) on my way home from school. “Steve from the Bronx” calls in to say he’s worried about the Yankees’ situational hitting this post-season, as if that lineup is going to have trouble bunting guys over, moving the runners, etc. To their credit, the hosts laughed him off the air.

  12. Evan on October 3rd, 2006 6:38 pm

    The Tigers did sort of mail this one in. They started freaking Nate Robertson. It was like they didn’t expect to win this game, so they pursued a high-risk high-reward strategy of sending out a guy who’s basically a really durable LOOGY.

    Wang actually appeared on my IBA ballot for MVP (ahead of Jeter).

    Lupica this morning: “If Joe Torre can’t win with this lineup, with this kind of insane financial advantage over any American League team they are going to come up against, if Torre can’t win with the deepest and most diversified and most talented batting order in baseball history, then when does he win again?”

  14. msb on October 3rd, 2006 6:44 pm

    #60– hey, it’s Maggs, man.

    and it is not a perm. it is annoyingly naturally curly hair.

  15. JMB on October 3rd, 2006 6:45 pm

    I was floored when I turned the game on and discovered Robertson was the starter. Really? Verlander, Bonderman, Rogers… Robertson?

    Gads! No! It takes 2 busses to get to goodwill. Las ttime I tried to go into the same neighborhood as goodwill, where the SuperCuts is, it took me 2 hours to get a haircut, in what should have taken me 45 ms (15 minute haircut, 20 minute total driving time)

    Have you been drinking again DJC?

  18. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 7:06 pm

    Nah, I’m as sober as a Mormon horse on the Sabbath.

    I’m studying for a calculus test so the math portion of my brain is already on overload.

  19. Sparhawk2k on October 3rd, 2006 7:11 pm

    Do you get to use a calculator on the test itself? Because it looks like you might need it…

  20. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 7:23 pm

    No calculator. I know.

  21. rd on October 3rd, 2006 7:25 pm

    Why take two hours of bus rides when there are plenty of barbershops in walking distance of campus? And you don’t have to feed the corporate man.

  22. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 7:27 pm

    The one that’s right by my dorm is closed on weekends. And I like supercuts. When I can’t use my barber in McCall and have to get my haircut in Boise, I always go to supercuts. Althugh the one on 17th and State in Boise is much nicer than the one on S 38th & Pine in Tacoma.

  23. Coach Owens on October 3rd, 2006 7:28 pm

    71. But those babershops are probably not big chain places and lack in quality.

  24. rd on October 3rd, 2006 7:29 pm

    Try Jon’s at 6th and Proctor. I’m pretty sure he’s open on Saturdays.

  25. dw on October 3rd, 2006 7:30 pm

    Seems stupid to mail in a game like this if you’re the Tigers. Them pitching Bonderman on Sunday seems silly now.

  26. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 7:35 pm

    Sixth and Proctor! That’s like 7 blocks from T/P! But I’ll give it a shot.

  27. Emerald on October 3rd, 2006 7:53 pm

    Does Ronan Tynan live at Yankee Stadium or something?

  28. DMZ on October 3rd, 2006 8:00 pm

    He’s kept in a cell under the field.

  29. Coach Owens on October 3rd, 2006 8:03 pm

    You know including tonights 4-4 Derek Jeter is now hitting .372 in his DS career.

  30. _MFAN_ on October 3rd, 2006 8:11 pm

    Did anyone else see the kid playing with his lips?

    Good stuff, he clearly is not amused with the Yankee Pen.

  31. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 8:28 pm

    Also, to take the bus to that barber on sixth and proctor, it would take 2 hours for what should be a 2 minute drive. It’s ludicrous.

  32. Evan on October 3rd, 2006 11:19 pm

    Suoercuts. For $8 you can get your hair cut by a blind guy with hiccups.

  33. David J. Corcoran I on October 3rd, 2006 11:23 pm

    It’s actually $11, but whatever.

  34. Steve T on October 3rd, 2006 11:59 pm

    I love that Corco is right there ready to reply immediately, three hours after everybody left!

  35. Russ on October 4th, 2006 12:05 am

    Corco, Since you’re in Tacoma, you need to become familer with Engine House #9.

    Do a search…you’ll find it.

  36. David J. Corcoran I on October 4th, 2006 8:20 am

    If I were of legal drinking age, I’d probably enjoy that more.
