...did the A's just completely forget the situation in the bottom of the 8th against Sheffield? Okay when it was 1st and 3rd with one out you of course play for two. But once Posada steals 2nd (let's not even get into the embarassment of that) why was the infield still back? Did Macha and Lacheman have a collective mental lapse and forget the Yankees had cut the lead to one? They would have had Jeter nailed at home on Sheffield's ground ball if the infield is in.
Wake me up when the A's start playing baseball.
That inning shouldn't have even mattered as much as it did.
Well one thing showed why I wish saves would be abolished as a statistic as Dotel gets a blown save tonight. Okay he did get lucky on the wild pitch that Posada tried to advance to 3rd on but he did a good job tonight but it goes down in the record books that he "blew" the game by letting a runner score on a weak ground ball.
A's lead 5-3, got lucky with the error but I'd take it.
Ugly, ugly, ugly win. Wow the Yankees look bad.
Should be amusing to read the NY rags tomorrow.
I heard the Yanks are on pace for a 61-101 record if this continues. Probalby won't happen but it's just fun to see the pinstrips finally going down the toilet for at least a few months.
yeah. it's fun.
I hate to think what will happen to Steinbrenner's horse tommorrow if he doesn't win the Kentucky Derby...
Yankess do look like crap right now, so the
yc, I can't believe you are upset that Dotel got a blown save for that! I am upset that he got the freaking win. How do you think Barry Zito feels?? Dotel comes in and allows a double steal with the CATCHER on the back end, then lets the tying run score. You can't blow a save any worse than that. I'm just glad he wasn't on the mound at the end of the game to celebrate. Kiko Calero closed it out with class.
Speaking of Dotel. Did anybody here read the sports spat in the trib today?
I didn't get to physically see the game, I watched on the game center - but WOW, we REALLY suck. Make no mistake, this was a win that we should have won, BUT at the same time, we should have lost this.
Hard to believe those were the Y's. 2 E's on Tino and one on A-Rod.
Agreed. That's how bad our team is. It took THAT for us to win that game.

Yay! We won the game! We beat the Yankees in New York! Yay! Yay, New York fans hate their own team! Yay! Yay! We helped put the nail in the coffin! Yay! There is a God, and God likes the A's! Yay!
Looking at the game from the NY perspective:
cool read. got any tabloid links?
answer my own question...
the Post called last night, "the hardest evidence yet that the Bombers' season is a lost cause..."
