  1. I know its just the ALDS, but . . .

    Called my dad tonight post game, he didn’t pick up. Mom texts me 2 minutes later to tell me my dad and granddad have been on the phone yelling about the game since the 6th inning. Dad texts me later to tell me we’ll talk tomorrow, but my granddad was crying on the phone. 93 years old, grew up a BoSox fan (raised in NE), immediately switch to the Rangers when the came to town (he’s lived in Texas since he got back from the war). He’s been to THOUSANDS of games.

    I can promise you that if the Rangers beat the Yanks to win the pennant, he’d buy a coffin the next day saying his life was complete.

  3. I don’t understand how… “because he’s left-handed, had his back turned to the play”… I pitched for 20 years, as a right-hander, and had my back turned every time I covered first too.

    The first play was screwed up by 1B Pena. Price had ZERO chance.

    The second play was screwed up by Price… A) by not busting to the bag fast enough off the bump, B) by monentarily arguing the call.

  4. Both runs are on Price in my opinion. He needs to request a tape of the game, take a month off, and then start watching. His stuff is dominant but he does almost nothing to hold runners and it’s incumbent upon him to check the runners immediately after receiving the ball at first. Add in that he seems to have failed to get his right cleat on the bag, leading to the second runner’s being safe, and he simply had a tough day in the field. He’ll also get nine innings of why Cliff Lee is so damned good, which is required viewing for any young LHP. Price has a bright future (96 at the knees is brutal), but he showed his inexperience last night.

  5. Pena non-chalanted the ball toward first, and should have never thrown it to Price in the first place. Hamilton was only halfway down the line and Pena had it all in front of him.
