While beating the Red Sox always makes for interesting storylines of its own, tonight’s game produced two occurrences of note:
1) Joba Chamberlain pitched well. If anything, Chamberlain may have been hampered by the long innings the Yankees had at the plate, but he pitched six innings completely and used only 86 pitches to get [...]

Pitching: RHP Joba Chamberlain (8-6, 4.73).
RED SOX (91-61)
From Roger Rubin:
The victory, combined with Texas’ loss to Oakland, reduces Boston’s magic number at 3 to clinch the wild card and their sixth playoff trip in seven years.
And don’t you think the Sox wouldn’t like to sew it up in their archrivals’ new home.
“Oh, we will…hopefully,” said Ortiz, who hit [...]

I noticed this little list in the comments section over at RAB, and thought it provided a solid illustration of why Yankees fans need to have patience with Joba Chamberlain:
Minor League Innings:
Neimann – 372.0
Wade Davis – 767.1
Shields – 554.1
Garza – 307.0
Price – 144.0
I had an interesting discussion with a friend of mine yesterday, about how the regular season itself essentially used to function as the playoffs, with the two best teams in each league battling it out [...]
Well, the headline does not reflect exactly what he said, but some interpretation of his remarks leaves it as the inescapable conclusion:
I don’t think there’s any question at all that this team [Red Sox] can win the World Series. No question whatsoever…..
Do you think Alex Rodriguez will look at the calendar and [...]
As we head to October, many have looked back at the job Joe Girardi has done this season and look forward to his lame duck contract status for next season. Tyler Kepner did a profile on him yesterday, looking at the changes he’s made and the expectations he faces heading to October. Our very [...]
