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 5, 2017 Gray eager for G1 start in ALDS against Tribe

The first day Sonny Gray stepped into the Yankees’ clubhouse, he could feel it. The expectation of getting to the postseason with this group and the right-hander being an important part of it.

“My first day in New York, I got that vibe,” said Gray, who was tabbed on Wednesday to get the ball for Game 1 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan tonight at Progressive Field. “And now, we’re here, and we’re ready to go.”

Gray, the Yankees’ big acquisition at the non-waiver Trade Deadline, will square off against Tribe righty Trevor Bauer in the opener of the best-of-five set.

Yanks left-hander CC Sabathia will start Game 2 against Tribe ace Corey Kluber. Masahiro Tanaka will pitch Game 3 in New York against Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the plan is for AL Wild Card Game starter Luis Severino to pitch Game 4, if necessary.

It really seems like Girardi has just decided that he has more faith in CC against the Indians than Severino. I think he’s off base there, but I will say that A. CC has been pitching well and B. CC obviously has an excellent history in the postseason (remember how nails he was in 2012?), so I guess I can understand the temptation. I would have still pitched Severino in Game 2, but whatever.

Tanaka in Game 3 makes sense, as he pitches a lot better at Yankee Stadium for whatever reason. Severino in Game 4 (if necessary) is interesting, as it means that either Gray or CC could pitch Game 5, depending on how they do in Games 1 and 2.

I like Sonny Gray a lot, but he sure isn’t the sort of dominant pitcher you’d like to have pitching Game 1. Of course, if Bauer continues to pitch as how he has pitched against the Yankees this season, Jaime Garcia could be the opposing starter, for all the difference that it would make.
