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.

Friday, April 7, 2017 Holliday, Sanchez homer, but Yanks falter late

Seth Smith delivered a memorable first homer with the Orioles, as the right fielder’s two-run blast in the seventh inning was the difference in Baltimore’s 6-5 series-opening win over the Yankees on Friday night.

The victory improved the O’s to 3-0 to start the season, while dropping New York to 1-3.

Smith sent a 2-1 pitch from Yankees reliever Tyler Clippard over the out-of-town scoreboard in right field for a one-out homer that also scored Jonathan Schoop. The inning got started when Yankees third baseman Chase Headley threw away Schoop’s routine ground ball, accounting for a key two-out error.

The inning didn’t get started with a two-out error, right?

Anyhow, this was obviously a terrible loss, especially because it makes you start to feel like a “Murphy’s Law” type of feeling about the team. You know, when they don’t need the relief pitching to be good, it’s stellar. When you need it to be good, it blows the game (after a key error, but still).

This really is very reminiscent of their last few years of this team, where Cashman is allowed just enough money where he can put a competitive team out there, so they’ll generally keep games close, but they need some luck (or some great high leverage relief pitching) to stay above .500. They’ve managed to do so the last few seasons, but this year might be the bridge too far. This might be the time where their inability to get hits with RISP will really haunt them. Or maybe not, as it is still ridiculously early in the season.

Good to see Gary Sanchez with the home run!
