ALDS Game 5 : Orioles @ Yankees

Update:
Yankees win 3-1 to win the ALDS

And it all comes down to this.... One game to decide who will be the second team fighting for a shot at the American League pennant and a chance at the Detroit Verlander's in the ALCS. Will it be the Yankees oft absent offense that takes center stage tonight or will it be the #toomanyhomeruns hit squad that has finished off a many a team. The Yankees will send CC Sabathia to do just what they got CC Sabathia to do and that is pitch the big game and the deciding game in the post season. The Orioles will counter with Jason Hammel in a rematch of the first game, which is not a great reason to be optimistic. Hammel shut us down when he shouldn't have but that was in Camden Yards so who knows. The game will be televised at 5:07 pm ET (hallelujah and hooray sleep) on TBS.

  1. Although I completely understand and agree with the decision, I never would have guessed Girardi would remove ARod from the lineup.

    Now Alex is just somebody to keep a spot warm on the bench, as he is neither a good pinch-hitter, pinch-runner, or defensive replacement.
