Current Projected

Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

NY Times: Mark Teixeira’s Ninth-Inning Grand Slam Lifts Yankees From Brink of Elimination

A quick survey of the Yankees’ clubhouse — a small sample, admittedly — revealed that no one was familiar with the perhaps apocryphal tale from Russian history of Rasputin, the spiritual adviser to Czar Nicholas II, whose rivals fed him poisoned wine, shot him several times and then tossed him into an icy river, which he tried to claw his way out of before finally dying.

“Who?” the rookie Tyler Austin asked.

“Never heard of him,” said a smiling Adam Warren, who has a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina, but in business administration.

The Yankees entered Wednesday needing one more day of Rasputin-like survival instincts to keep alive their playoff hopes, which hovered somewhere between microscopic and nonexistent.

After stirring victories the previous two nights, the Yankees mustered another when — down to the final out to stay mathematically alive — Mark Teixeira blasted a game-ending grand slam to keep the Yankees relevant for another day with a 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

The Yankees, trailing by three runs with one out to go, knew a loss would eliminate them after the Baltimore Orioles staged a ninth-inning rally of their own moments earlier, coming from behind to beat the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees really don’t have a chance at the wild card at this point, but at least they denied a Boston celebration on the Yankees’ field.  Good for Teixeira, who I was certain was going to make an out there.
