Well after an extremely crazy start to this series, I'd say game 1 went pretty damn well. Way for Nova to step up and Cano put on a show offensively! Hopefully game 2 goes well!

That Cano homerun was awesome!! I've seen my fair share of well-hit homeruns, and believe me when I say he DESTROYED that pitch. Nova was very good as well. Hopefully Freddy can follow suit tomorrow!

Sucks putting together a great regular season and throwing it all away in the first round. :argh: :argh: :argh:

The official start of the offseason can't come soon enough.

So, we were all pleasantly surprised by AJ, the offense did its job against the bullpen, and we're headed back to the Bronx. Now let's hope Nova can take us to the promised land.

and all of a sudden, Girardi's decision to start AJ is brilliant. very pleased with how he pitched yesterday, he definitely did his job. Joe made sure he didnt pitch too long and get in trouble, cant blame him.

and now this series has basically taken a complete 180 degrees. im sooo pumped lets go!

I know the playoffs are a crap shoot and I've been fortunate enough to see 5 WS titles in my life, but it doesn't make a first round loss after a great regular season any easier to deal with. Literally sick to my fvcking stomach right now.

We've had this discussion before so you know my reasoning...they're the local team. Am I not allowed to cheer for a baseball team just because NJ doesn't have one?

All things considered a good season for the Yankees when you think of the huge question marks in their pitching staff at the start. But definitely a very tough loss tonight. Offense just didn't show up tonight in a few situations where they could have blew it open. Girardi did a very good job managing his pitching staff though.

Thanks man. I actually want to take this opportunity to thank the Mets fans on this forum for being respectful to me over the years. Its nice to co-exist without any hostility. In fact the majority of my friends who like baseball in real life are Mets fans and I hope they get a chance to experience a WS title at some point. Your fanbase deserves a lot better than what you've got.

This was really just a tough series to watch as a Yankee fan. They failed in the clutch time after time after time. Even guys with reputations for coming through like Jeter just couldn't even come close to getting it done. The guys who came through the biggest this series seemed to be the most maligned all year in Burnett and Posada. Cano looked great at times, awful at others. Gardner was a pleasant surprise. Granderson was there when needed. Everyone else....not so much. Swisher was useless, Teix was useless, A-Rod was useless, and Martin was useless. I don't know how Girardi didn't think once about changing the line-up after the whole middle of it proved they were doing NOTHING. I truly hope he is fired in the offseason. Meanwhile, while the pitching wasn't spectacular, it should've been enough to get the job done. Here's to rooting for Texas and whoever wins the Brewers/D-Backs series.

Offense just didn't show up tonight in a few situations where they could have blew it open. Girardi did a very good job managing his pitching staff though.

Very excited for tomorrow's game. Roy Halladay is a future HOF, but this is the first gigantic game of his career. Very interested to see how he handles it.

I agree with you man, the Yankees really did get lucky with Colon and Garcia this year. I'm on record saying I didn't expect Colon to make it out of spring training and I didn't expect much from Garcia. All Colon did was post a 3.83 FIP 2.9 WAR and Garcia 4.12 FIP and 2.2 WAR.

I was also pleased to see a guy like Nova who I've been following for a few years now excel in his rookie season with a 4.01 FIP and 2.7 WAR.

I know I get on Girardi sometimes (mainly bunting) but I think he did a solid job managing this year.

Yeah RISPfail makes it all that more frustrating. While I do believe the Yankees are the better team, I have to give the Tigers credit for taking advantage of the breaks when they came to them. Bottom line is they stepped up and the Yankees couldn't.

Thanks for the very kind words. Obviously I can't speak for every Mets fan, but I really have no ill will towards the Yankees. The two teams aren't division rivals and they don't even play in the same league.

And I agree with DR33, despite the 1st round loss (it's a crapshoot, like you said), it was still a good season; Sabathia proved he's still one of the game's top starters, Granderson's hitting adjustments look to have made him into one of the game's top position players, and there are still tons of other valuable assets on that roster (Cano, Gardner, A-Rod, Teixeira). I have no idea what they plan on doing this offseason, but with their rotation looking like a bit of a project, C.J. Wilson would make tons of sense for them. He'll be 31 next season but he's hitting free agency with not a lot of mileage on his arm and hes a clear ace. The Yanks would be ridiculous with their lineup and a 1-2 punch of Sabathia and Wilson.

As an aside, I can't believe Valverde has been perfect this season despite meh peripherals. Also, people act as if K-Rod has major antics when he closes out games... oof, please, the guy jumps for joy for almost every out he gets. What a tool. He'll blow one in the ALCS; I guarantee it.
