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, October 12, 2017 Didi drives Yanks to ALCS date with Astros

The Yankees believed they had the right blend of talent not only to force the American League Division Series back to Progressive Field, but to win it all. Having made good on that promise by knocking off the defending AL champion Indians, New York’s improbable and exhilarating run at a 28th World Series title will now run through Houston.

Didi Gregorius homered twice, CC Sabathia rolled back the clock with nine strikeouts before turning it over to the bullpen in the fifth inning and the Yankees completed their historic comeback from a daunting deficit, advancing past the Indians with a 5-2 victory in Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday night.

“For me to be here with these guys is just unbelievable,” Gregorius said. “This amazing, young team that we’ve got, everybody helps each other out here. Everybody wants each other to be good. I think that’s the motto since I got here.”

Well, that was okay.

Remember how shitty 2004 was? I don’t mean to bring up a terrible memory, but I was thinking about it because, at the time, despite the Yankees being up 3-0, I really hated the pitching match-ups for the next four games and I remember telling people throughout the Boston comeback that I was thinking that the Sox had a real chance the whole time. Similarly, the Yankees’ pitching advantages in Games 3 and 4 made this comeback look possible. Even before Game 2, I recall noting, “Okay, so they’re going to lose tonight, but they really should win Games 3 and 4 and then who knows?” Of course, they should have won Game 2. Speaking of Game 2, Joe Girardi seriously looked happier with this win than he did when they won the World Series in 2009, that’s how pumped he was that his team got his back after the big Game 2 blunder. Good for him.

While Didi was the main hero in Game 5, it is definitely worth noting that three of the key contributors in this game - CC Sabathia, David Robertson and Brett Gardner - all played for the Yankees in the 2009 World Series. That’s pretty awesome.

Houston will be a tough matchup, but the Yankees are now a tough matchup themselves for everyone else, so it should be a fun series.

Let’s hope that the Yankees keep the good times rolling as they head into Houston.
