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.

Thursday, August 17, 2017 Clutch Didi, mighty Judge lift Yanks over Mets

Aaron Judge awed his teammates with one of the most impressive home runs in Citi Field history and Didi Gregorius delivered a tiebreaking hit to lead the Yankees past the Mets, 5-3, in Subway Series action on Wednesday evening.

The rookie phenom immediately put his head down and began running the bases after his American League-leading 37th homer, a titanic fourth-inning blast off Robert Gsellman. Playing his first career game in Queens, Judge joined Yoenis Cespedes as the only players to reach the third deck in left field.

Certainly great to see Judge hitting bombs again.

Good win, with a clutch double by Didi winning it. Annoyingly,  the Red Sox scored three in the bottom of the ninth off of three different Cardinal pitchers to win their game,  so the Yankees have gained just a single game in this three game winning streak. The division probably just isn’t happening. However, so long as they keep winning, they at least put themselves in a good position to take the Wild Card.

Jaime Garcia did what he does best - pitch okay. Enough to keep you in the game. That has real value. With a well-worked bullpen, the Yankees tried to coax six out of Garcia, which proved to be a mistake. Luckily, Didi came through to give them the lead back. Depending on whether you count Kahnle giving up Garcia’s run as giving up a run or not, the bullpen didn’t give up a run for two of their last three games (basically, whenever Chapman doesn’t pitch).

Robertson was a delight as a closer who didn’t dick around the whole time, but Chapman apparently not only still has the closer job, but is not even going on the DL. That sounds like it might come back to haunt them.
