Damn, I'm so mad at the Mariners right now. Their job is to beat the Angels and they didn't come through. I don't really want to see the Yankees play the Angels in the Division Series when they capture the wildcard spot. Like I said before, I'd rather see the Mariners win the division and have the Angels fall completely out of the race. We've got a month to go, so maybe that can still happen.

Then of course, when it comes to Yanks/BoSox, a victory over the Sox is always sweet. Especially at The Stadium.

As for the Moose situation, Joe Torre really had no choice. This reminds me of when David Cone had that 4-14 year with the Yanks back in 2000. Hey, at least Moose had a decent first half of the season. They'll probably send him to the bullpen.

Cause there's no way the Mariners actually want to win themselves.

The way they played the last two games, I'm not convinced they want to win.

That's the worst kind of day -- Red Sox and M's lose, Yankees and Angels win. Karma has to turn around today, right? At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Can't hold on to a 5-0 1st inning lead. <disgust>

If the M's do make the playoffs, I hope they get to avoid the Angels -- they own us this year!

It was the most obvious of the three games for them to win, with Pettite being their best pitcher.

So now they are 7 back. I'm glad you enjoyed the victory.

in the running, yes... for sure? not quite...

as it stands right now matt holliday should probably be the NL MVP, but there are a number of candidates, including howard, pujols, reyes, ramirez and fielder... but it'll probably come down to holliday, utley and david wright.

and maybe the yankees won't make the playoffs, which is more likely than the angels falling completely out of the playoffs.

Dear Boston Redsox,

I understand how once in a while you can't help but take pity on someone who doesn't deserve it.

It is very charitable to give away something that is rightfully yours to those less fortunate.

I don't condone it, but I understand it.

Don't let it happen again...

Thanks in advance,

Zumanity

I think the focus is more on the wildcard although the division would be nice. The Yanks' poor first half and the BoSox' great first half has made the wildcard the Yanks' realistic chance for the postseason. What sucks though is that if the Angels win the AL West, (a strong possibility) the Yanks would have to face the Angels in the LDS.

the yankees would need another all time colapse from the red sox in order to win the division, while at the same time playing lights out ball for the rest of the season.

ain't happening.

If the Phillies win tonight or tomorrow, my faith remains.

i really think they need to sweep the mets in order to stay alive for the division... even if they win 3 of 4, they'd still be 4 games outs.

Yeah, but at least the wild card isn't terribly out of hand with 3 out of 4.

I think the Mariners picked the wrong week to go on vacation. Down 3-1 already, middle of the 4th. Outhit 9 to 1. C'mon, Wake Up!
