AL Wild Card Gamethread

The Boston Red Sox play host to the New York Yankees. Nathan Eovaldi squares up against Gerrit Cole. The game will be broadcast on ESPN at 5:00 pm Pacific. If you are statistically inclined (or just want to avoid the main ESPN crew), you might want to check out the Statcast broadcast on ESPN2.

Here are the lineups:

If he doesn’t start he’s sure to get an important AB as a pinch-hitter.

Honestly, I would do the same if I was the manager.

To knock the Dodgers out. Another big “hit” by Pujols for the Cardinals.

Once I really looked it in the face I realized I wanted Boston to win. Yankees fans have been assholes since the 1910s, they are still assholes, I like the city of Boston more, and most of all, look at the difference in the guys they are playing against each other, “bought” talent Vs Hunter Renfroes… I’m glad the Sux beat the Skanks… now they can go get killed by the Rays because Bahstun fan has indeed sucked since 2004.

sometimes you don’t know until the first pitch. That’s when I found out I wanted the Skanks to lose.

I guess Boston smells less like urine than New York. But Boston does have it’s racist reputation. ….. Hmmmm………… Nope, still dislike both of them.

Lol, I guess its all relative because honestly I find New England/Boston fans to be the most obnoxious in sports especially the last 20 years when their current title streak has happened across the franchises. I have a lot of close friends that are NY transplants plus family in the NYC so I guess I’m in the like NY better camp. Doesn’t help that I’ve always hated the Celtics. I mean we are seriously picking between two very unpleasant choices.

did you know that the Mariners have the longest playoff drought of any team…in any sport…in North America?

one down. My hope for tomorrow: Stan Musial returns from the land beyond and smacks a double to plate the winning tally.

Just imagine if we were down 4-1 to the Chowds tonight, this thread would be everyone telling each other to BELIEVE or to just go doe, maybe too intense…

I would love to be down 4-1 to the chowds tonight. That would mean the Angels actually made it to post-season play!

Not me. We did that. Several times under Sosh.

Those were the most depressing seasons; fighting all year and then getting swept by the Red Sox in the ALDS. I would rather have not made it at all !

I think it was two times they swept us — I remember one time for sure.

Remember when Washburn gave up that HR to Manny that went, like 900 feet? Dismal AF.

Fire Maddon! Trade Ohtani so we get something before he leaves! Storm the Big A and hoist Arte up by his billboards!

here’s why I hate Skank fans…talking about Gerrit Cole

“he’s over priced, doesn’t deserve that contract if he got it from using sticky stuff. If I were the Yanks, I might try to renegotiate it. Would probably never happen”

more from Pinstripe Alley…I’ll just paraphrase…”he’s an Astro cheater!”

Oh, is this game still going? I sincerely hope that whichever team wins tonight, it gets bounced out quickly by Tampa
