Found October 11, 2012 on Friarhood:
What an exciting night for baseball fans. It's not too often you get two walkoff wins in one night, when there are only four games being played. This year seemed to be that way. There are two games that are extremely close, then the other two are blow outs. This was exactly the same case last night as the A's and the Evil Empire walked off, while the Giants and Cards had an offensive explosion. As much as I don't like the Yankees, how about Raul Ibanez last night? Now that was impressive. You can catch all those recaps, plus some Padres stuff below.

Yankeetorial: Last night, in the cosmic image of Raul Ibanez, did we fans everywhere just uncover the secret to life?

Last night, I watched eight innings from under the couch. Finally, I'd made spiritual peace with the loss, with the end of the season, with the incredible waste of time and energy that baseball represents, with my mortality, with my inconsequential status in the universe, and with the fact that I would never again taste a Yankee championship - yes, folks, I was broken down to...

Raul Ibanez’s Historic Clutch Evening

Raul Ibanez batted twice tonight. He hit a game tying home run in the ninth, then a game winning home run in the 12th. His WPA for the game: .827. We only have postseason data going back to 2002, but from our records, this is the second best single game WPA in that stretch, trailing only David Freese‘s amazing performance from Game 6 of the World Series last year. Freese...

Vote: Should Raul Ibanez Start Over Alex Rodriguez for the Yankees in Game 4?

For one night, Raul Ibanez was the greatest hitter of all time. Pinch-hitting for Alex Rodriguez -- who many predicted would someday hold that title -- in the bottom of the ninth, Ibanez launched a home run into the right-field stands at Yankee Stadium to tie the game. Then, improbably, impossibly, he hit another in the 12th inning, sending New York into a frenzy and the Yankees...

Raul is cool, A-Rod gets pulled, and the Yankees win

What a night! Squawker Jon and I were on the phone in the ninth inning, when we saw that Raul Ibanez had taken Alex Rodriguez's place in the lineup. We barely had time to digest it when we saw that Ibanez hit a homer to tie the game. Then, to make things even more unbelievable, he of course did something that has never been done in a postseason game before -- hitting a home run...

Coming into Wednesday night's ALDS Game 3 at Yankee Stadium, the Baltimore Orioles were 16-2 in extra-inning games on the year -- a blemish-free 16-0 against everyone but the New York Yankees, and 0-2 against the one team standing between them and their first playoff series win in 15 years.

In the cold air of the morning after

Last night was a bitter pill to swallow. It was a hard, swift kick to the collective bellend of the greater Baltimore area. For at least the next 10 hours, we will hear about the Yankee mystique and the majesty of the greatest franchise in baseball's history. The New York Yankees have had so many moments like last night's in their history that they could fill a library...

The Yankees may be forced to make lineup changes for today's deciding game five against the Orioles in the elimination game. They may take Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson out of the starting lineup and replace with Eric Chavez and Raul Ibanez.
