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.

Saturday, July 8, 2017 Bullpen provides no relief for Yanks in loss

Jesus Aguilar and the Brewers could stomach committing five errors after their long night ended with a fifth consecutive win.

Aguilar homered twice, including a grand slam, and tied Milwaukee’s franchise record with seven RBIs to overshadow Aaron Judge’s Major League-leading 30th home run in the Brewers’ 9-4 win over the Yankees on Friday evening at Yankee Stadium.
“I’m a very, very happy man,” Aguilar said through translator Carlos Brizuela. “I’m happy I tied [Ryan Braun’s] record, but I’m most happy that we got the win. As long as we keep winning. ... The most important thing is we came back from [the errors]. We kept our heads up.”
With their eighth win in nine games, the Brewers pushed nine games over .500 for the first time this season and remain 4 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Cubs in the National League Central. The Yankees lost for the 17th time in 23 games.

We might seriously be in a position to see these guys finally lose their streak of winning seasons, and in a season where they ended up with five dudes on the All-Star team! This is hilariously depressing.

As for Clippard, I don’t think using him was really so much the issue so much as the fact that he’s here to be used at all. In other words, GIrardi tried to go with Webb over Clippard but Webb was terrible. Clippard didn’t come in in a position where you typically use a good reliever. Instead, he came in in a position where you typically would use one of your weaker relievers. The problem is that Clippard just shouldn’t be on this team at all. If he was DFAed today, would anyone even claim him on waivers? There would be teams that would give him a shot as a free agent, of course, but no one is picking up his contract. He’s a free agent at the end of the year. Just get rid of the guy. He’s lost it. This is not even to say that Ben Heller won’t suck, too, if he’s called up (they’re ALL sucking right now - even Chad Green had a bad game the last time out. Only Adam Warren hasn’t had a bad game recently and that was because he was on the disabled list for all but two games), but Heller might have a future. Clippard does not. Just move on from the guy. If he’s there, with the way that this team keeps needing to go to the bullpen, he will be used. It’s unavoidable. The only way to avoid it is to get rid of him.
