Found October 13, 2012 on Lady At The Bat:
It wasn't the shutout I said had to happen but it was a complete game win nonetheless. CC Sabathia finished off a great run for Yankee pitchers in the ALDS by allowing just one run on four hits, and walking two and striking out nine.On the other side of the ball, the three runs the Yankees scored felt like ten with the big fella on the mound. But it was the way they scored the runs that was most impressive to me. Teixeira's stolen base was shocking.    And although one run was via the home run, it was of the tack on variety.So the Yankees move on to the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers. The Baltimore Orioles are going home. This morning on WFAN Radio, Richard Neer described the Orioles as a piece of gum that gets stuck to the bottom of your shoe. You have an extremely hard time getting it off. It takes forever. Last night, forever finally ended.Congratulations to the Orioles for a great season, and continued good luck to the Yankees in this exciting postseason.

Sluggers have short window in ALCS

NEW YORK In dueling Game 5s over a 24-hour span, Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia demonstrated what aces are supposed to do in October. Verlander stomped to the mound Thursday in Oakland, before a hostile and delirious crowd, and delivered the finest performance of his postseason career: nine innings, zero runs, 11 strikeouts. He rescued a beleaguered bullpen, threw his first playoff...

The season has come to an end for the Baltimore Orioles. What a ride it has been. I’m off the crazy train and trying to get readjusted to society and preparing for a long winter without baseball. I’m now back from a long, winding, and exhilarating trip to New York City to catch the Orioles. I decided at the last minute to trek up to the Big Apple (while very sick) after seeing...
