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.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 Gardner, Holliday homer twice in rout of O’s

Brett Gardner and Matt Holliday each homered twice and Aaron Judge drove in a pair of runs to support a strong pitching performance by Luis Severino as the Yankees enjoyed a huge early cushion in Tuesday’s 8-3 series-evening victory over the Orioles.

The American League East-leading Yanks entered the day second in the AL in runs, but had averaged just 3.36 per game since May 18. They raised that number against O’s starter Chris Tillman, with Gardner hitting a leadoff blast and Holliday clearing the fences one out later.

“I think you can ask all our pitchers, they want an early lead they can work with,” Gardner said. “Offensively, we got off to such a great start early in the season, and the last week or two we’ve slowed down a little bit collectively. It’s nice to put some runs back up, put some crooked numbers on the board and give Sevvy a lead he’s comfortable with.”

New York added a run in the second before Holliday belted his second homer of the night off Tillman to help chase the Baltimore righty in the third.

Well, that was about as good as you could draw it up from a general standpoint, in that the offense was great and their starter was great. The bullpen was not only bad, but Girardi chose to use Adam Warren for a single batter in the 7th inning up 7 runs. That was strange. My only guess is that he wanted to let Warren pitch to Machado in a low-pressure situation to let Warren work on him for confidence in the future (as Machado has owned Warren so far in his career). That’s the only slightly rational reason I could come up with for letting Warren pitch to one batter in a seven-run game. And that’s probably not a good enough reason to use him, so that was likely a bad call there. Then Girardi had to go to Tyler Clippard after Bryan Mitchell became a batting practice pitcher in the 8th inning. So that was sub-optimal, but that stuff was not nearly as important as the main headline - Severino pitched well and the offense hit four home runs and scored 8 runs.

Tanaka will try to make Tanaka-time something that you can maybe actually look forward to again, as he tries to keep the good times going on Wednesday.
