    I haven’t posted all season because I have a baby and no time to read game threads anymore, but that was the greatest moment all season, for so many reasons. Saving King Felix’s awesome start and helping his Cy Young campaign, beating Rivera and the Yankees, and a second walkoff in two nights. Add Guti’s amazing game, Sweeney’s utterly inexplicable pinch-hit, winning in spite of some lousy umpiring (Ichiro’s pick-off and the called third strike on Carp in the ninth), another one-run win… JESUS! Ichiro should publicly challenge Mauer to get as many at-bats as he possibly can to make the batting title a fair fight. He will likely come up short at this point, but he’s tops in my book. What a fun season this has ultimately been.

    I was lucky enough to be at the game.
    Walking out with the I-CHI-RO! chant echoing down the stairways and onto the street… something to remember.

    Amazing exploit by Ichiro, but in no way did that game-winning hit help Felix Hernandez win the AL CYA. That award is rightly the property of Zach Greinke, as Dave noted in the original game thread.

    I guess you’ll have to take solace from the fact that Tim Lincecum might well repeat as the NL CYA.

    How in the Hell is Ichiro’s! walk off to win off Mariano to win the game not sportscenter’s top play! it wasn’t even on the top 10! The number one play came from the Pirates – Padres barn burner… with the first baseman of the Pirates making a nice pick and a clean toss to first to get the out. wtf is going on! No respect for ICHIRO! on sportscenter!

    Probably ’cause ESPN gets real pissy when their precious Yanks get beat…

    That’s alright. I think we know better! :)

    Ichiro! The face of the Mariners! (sorry Jr)

    I’m such a miserable human being. After the game I went to go read the comments threads in a couple of Yankee’s blogs so I could more fully feel their pain.

    Their pain felt great. The fact there are quite a few self avowed Ichiro haters over there made it even sweeter.

    Highlight of the season.

    “That award is rightly the property of Zach Greinke, as Dave noted in the original game thread.”

    Well, it might *rightly* be, but Greinke hasn’t actually won it yet, has he? And is there anyone rivaling him besides Felix? Cy Young voters have been known to make curious choices. I don’t think Felix is by any means out of it yet…

  16. Liam on September 19th, 2009 12:02 am

    Greinke hasn’t actually won it yet, has he?

    16 wins is the lowest total for any Cy Young-winning starter in a full season. Greinke has 14 after today. If he doesn’t pick up a couple wins it might not be a lock. He should get it though.

    RE: Sportscenter

    When do they make the 10 Ten lists? The game wasn’t over until almost 1 AM in Connecticut so it may have been too late to get it in the Top 10.

    That said, it totally should be #1. That was frickin awesome.

    I like this “Ichiro” fellow! Very, very much!

  19. felixday on September 19th, 2009 12:13 am

    How much does Felix get on the open market? You can argue that he will get the biggest contract in the history of baseball once a free agent.

  20. felixday on September 19th, 2009 12:13 am

    for a pitcher that is…

  21. rsrobinson on September 19th, 2009 4:17 am

    It was almost midnight here in Texas and I was just trying to stay awake for the inevitable third out when the game turned within the space of two pitches. I have to say I didn’t see that coming. Neither did the Yankees.

  22. matthew on September 19th, 2009 7:38 am

    I could watch this over and over and over and over and over again…

    Thanks, Mattehew – the video of Ichiro was great, but Dave Niehaus’ radio call was for the ages – pure poetry worthy of late-season 1995. Anyone know if it is available on-line?
