You'd almost think Cody Ross and Will Middlebrooks pissed on home plate at Fenway or something last night. Both were watching the Yankees/Tigers game and both tweeted their amazement/admiration for Raul Ibanez's ninth-inning home run.

Comcast Sportsnet reports on the grim scene in the clubhouse last night after yet another stupid loss:
