i saw that last night on the fox preshow and thought that was a joke. i didn't know that they actually did that.

How well do you remember 1986? I was in Fenway for game 5, remember things quite vividly. There wasn't an outcry over McNamara removing Clemens. It was widely reported Clemens was removed due to a split on his finger. Only one person complained of Clemens' removal after the game, Clemens. He said he could have gone further, while McNamara contends (to this day, it was reiterated during last night's broadcast) that Clemens asked out of the game.
Some people do blame McNamara for game 6, but not for yanking Clemens, but for not putting Dave Stapleton in at first in the bottom of the 10th, a maneuver he made all season long because of Buckner's ailments.
As for Grady...it was pretty clear to most people that Pedro was cooked. Grady should make the same move as Torre, step out of the dugout, signal for the reliever, then head to the mound. Don't let the player dictate your move.

I agree it shouldnt be up to the player, Grady says "Pedro wanted to go", well Grady, hows about you grow a pair and make the decisions you are paid to make.
I mean, of course he wants to stay out there, who wouldnt, (unless injured).

Back in 1986, Ronan Tynan wasn't disgracing the memory of the victims of 9/11 with an overblown rendition of "God Bless America" intended to put opposing starting pitchers on ice for the 7th inning. Pedro should not have entered the bottom of the 7th.

how is singing god bless america a disgrace to the victims of 9/11? i don't get that comment at all... they've been doing god bless america durring the 7th innings stretch at every single game since 9/11... they didn't do it in this game just to ice the pitcher... that's retarded.

I think the Yankees have scored in the 7th inning of every home playoff game so far. I think Boston started doing the overblown version of God Bless America this series too, I'm ashamed to admit. I firmly believe that there's some gamesmanship going on here, and that's what's shameful -- manipulating what should be a solemn rememberance for sport.

I didn't realize the whole God Bless America thing until Fox made a comment about it last night. I would hate to think that the Yankees are abusing a patriotic song for their own advantage.

This has been the most interesting postseason in years, maybe decades.

I think we should have Fox cover a match up between the best little league team from Chicago and the best Little League Team from Boston. it is the match up we all wanted. We can call it the Grady Little League World Series
