GameChat – Rangers @ Yankees ALCS #3, 7:00 pm

OK, MLB’s page says 7:00 pm BUT I have heard that first pitch isn’t actually until 7:30.  I’m not exactly sure who to believe but.. there you go anyway.

So… Cliff Lee in NY – anyone think this might be a little bit of an audition?? I am glad that so far, it’s a split series with the Rangers.  I would fall down in a faint if the Rangers can take both here in NY but I would be ecstatic with another split series.

That was just an old fashioned butt-kicking by the Rangers! I didn’t see the first 7 innings but when Yankee Stadium is virtually empty before the home team comes up for their last swings, that says just about all you need to know. Keep it up Rangers! – JC
