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.

Monday, September 4, 2017 Yanks chase Sale early, cut Sox lead to 3 1/2

The Yankees set the stage for an exciting American League East race heading down the stretch by pulling out a crucial 9-2 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday night that gave them three wins in the four-game series against their rivals.

Fueled by a dominant pitching performance by Luis Severino and three solo homers against Red Sox ace Chris Sale, the Yankees slimmed Boston’s lead to 3 1/2 games with four weeks left in the regular season.

“This club’s gonna fight,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “We’re gonna fight, and we’re resilient.”
It was the last of 19 meetings between the Red Sox and Yankees, and New York won the season series, 11-8. The clubs could meet again in the postseason. The Yankees hold a two-game lead over the Twins for the first AL Wild Card spot.

Well, you certainly couldn’t realistically expect them to do any better than to take three out of four against the Red Sox, bringing them within three games in the loss column of the Red Sox. Meanwhile, due to losses by the Twins and the Angels, the Yankees open up a two-game lead on Minnesota Twins for the first Wild Card spot and three and a half games (four games in the loss column) on the Angels and the Orioles.

This, then, leads to a huge three-game set in Baltimore against the Orioles. The Angels play the shitty Athletics. So that could be some trouble there. Really, though, the whole thing is just win ball games. If the Yankees keep winning games, they’ll be fine. Remember, the Orioles and Angels are both just three games over .500. The Yankees are 10 games over.  Just keep on trying to stay at least 10 games over.

It was nice to see basically an opposite result of the Severino/Kluber game from Monday, with Sale being the one who gave up three solo home runs and Severino being the one who kept it strong before his offense crushed the relief pitching of the other team. Good job, Severino!

Good result to see.

Hopefully they do well against the Baltimore Bucks.
