Before Jerry Recco’s first update of the morning, Craig let Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher know that fans don’t appreciate the perma-grin plastered on his face amid his struggles – and the Bombers’ – this postseason.
Then the guys tried to make sense of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s ridiculous athletic feat.
Jerry then got things started with the Yankees, after their 3-0 loss to the Tigers in Game 2 of the ALCS. Joe Girardi got ejected for rightfully arguing a call by umpire Jeff Nelson in the top of the eighth inning, which led to two addition runs for the Tigers.
Alex Rodriguez — who Craig believes might be better served to roll the dice and get back on the PEDs — was in the lineup playing third base and batting sixth, going 1 for 4 with two strikeouts. But the ‘Gas Face-Goat Horns’ go to A-Rod’s teammate Robinson Cano, who is batting .063 this postseason and set an MLB record for postseason futility by going hitless in his last 26 at-bats.
Over in the NLCS, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Giants in San Francisco 6-4, to take a 1-0 lead in that series.
Getting to the NFL, the Giants delivered a thorough beatdown to the 49ers out in San Francisco, winning 26-3 and sending a message in the process. Rex Ryan had his Gang Green prepared for Andrew Luck & Co., as the Jets hammered the Colts 35-9, behind a big day from Shonn Green on the ground.
