    I predict that Professor Kyle "Good News, Everybody -- I've just blown a three run lead!" Farnsworth will blow at least one critical lead in the postseason.

    I can't decide whether I think Alex is going to choke or not. I hope he doesn't, as it likely means his departure from the Bombers. However, my instincts tell me he will.

    Players to Watch: Melky, "Mankayvitch," Joba.

    Players to Watch (While Drinking Heavily): Mussina, Farnsworth.

    So inquiring minds want to know…how is New York treating you? I mean besides the fact that you are in my dismayed team’s back yard and all.

    Great job you are doing with your blog and hope to see more sympathy for us Mets fans from you. Circa your last run down of the league.

    farnsworth will be ok as long as he pitches w/overhead windup as he then can't see what he's doing; even with bases loaded, unless of course the bases got loaded while he was pitching w/windup.
    also this is the postseason A-Rod earns his HOF berth. just go out there and have fun A-R.

    Only a thought...wish Joe could have found a spot for Ian Kennedy. Any idea why he would not have been as valuable as Veras or el WorthlessUno.

    I have more faith in Farnsy than I do in many of the other pitchers--such as Bruney, etc.

    As long as they use Farnsworth sparingly, and NOT in the ninth inning, I think we'll be fine.



    I don't feel an A-Rod choke this year. Something tells me that this year is different.

    As much as it hurts to say...

    Yankees in 4.

    Roger "My Rocket is out of Fuel" Clemens will get shelled in game three, otherwise, smooth sailing for the damn Yanks.

    See you in the ALCS.

    just so you know my heart isn't completely made of stone: the Joba Chamberlain and his dad seeing him pitch in KC got me al choked up. Seeing a grown man tear up over watching his son succeed in the bigs is enough to reduce me to a pile of mush.

    Don't take too much stock in my words adrian because I'm not paid for this, but I feel A-Rod is gone no matter what. It is of my understanding that Cashman approached Boras with the intent to talk extension (or so the reports I've read on ESPN have stated) and they turned him down without talking, opting to "test the market."

    Now, let's be honest, the Yankees can give A-Rod whatever he wants. And there's certainly enough speculation out there as to how much he could potentially receive, so if A-Rod truly wanted to stay in New York, he'd have said, no prob, let's talk $30 million a season.

    My guess? A-Rod ends up in So Ca, playing for the Angels, because Maureen told him the whole "living in New York" thing isn't permanent. I'd expect him and his wife to get divorced shortly thereafter, and since Mo doesn't seem like the easy type, a long courting process to follow.

    When I do liveblogs on www.replacementlevel.com (*cough* cheap plug *cough*) I refer to Damon as "Sexy Calves" thanks to . So that might work better than "Demon." Just sayin'. :)

    Given this season of manic-depressive play of the Yanks, I wouldn't be too surprised if the sweep the Indians or are swept themselves.

    Don't feel the intensity there anymore as when Paul O'Neill, Scott Brosius, Elvis, Girardi and the rest of the team went into the playoffs. Some of these guys strike me as they could really care less if they win.

    Loving the roster names. Too bad Brian "What, I have to PLAY my way onto the roster?" Bruney couldn't join the party.

    Great stuff as always, YC.

    Clueless- Ian Kennedy isn't on the roster because of a bad back. He might be good to go for the ALCS.
