GameChat – Rangers @ Yankees ALCS #4, 7:00, TBS

Sorry if you were watching this afternoon’s NLCS game and felt an overwhelming need to chat – I just wasn’t around to be able to get anything up.  Here’s your scoreboard update though:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Philadelphia 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0
San Francisco 0 0 0 2 1 0 0 0 x 3 5 0


As for tonight’s game, here’s the info you want.  I won’t be around for the chat but at least it will be open available for those who are starting to really get caught up in a great series.  I LOVED seeing the Rangers take it to the Yankees last night.  Now they are ahead 2-1 and the Yankees are behind the 8 ball at home.  Of course, they seem to respond fairly strongly to that situation as a rule so I sense we’ll see some real fight from the NY boys tonight.  Gut instinct tells me that this will have a LOT more scoring for both teams than last night… we’ll have to see how this goes.

*giggling uncontrollably*

That was fun to watch the end of – kind of wish I had seen more of the game.  Now that the Rangers are up 3-1 and have taken 2 from the Yankees on their home grass with a chance to end the entire series tomorrow, I think we have all learned one very important lesson:  Nick Swisher shouldn’t play 1B.  But if he does, you should watch because it’s hilarious.  If someone ever gives him that opportunity again (unlikely) he should be required to wear a red nose and a wig when he goes out there.  And for the record, yeah, Hamilton really does know how to swing a bat – along with several other members of his team.  Nice.

Not sure whether we are going to be able to get a gamechat up for tomorrow afternoon’s game but if I can, I will because I gotta tell you that I am going to be trying to catch any part of the game I can.  Go Rangers.
