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, September 2, 2017 Homers back Tanaka as Yanks trim Sox’s lead

Masahiro Tanaka doffed his cap as he walked off the mound to a standing ovation in the eighth inning, a well-deserved reward after helping his Yankees keep their division dreams alive with a 5-1 victory on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

Tanaka limited Boston to a run and five hits over seven-plus innings to win his third consecutive start and Matt Holliday cracked a three-run homer in his return from the disabled list, trimming Boston’s lead in the American League East back to 4 1/2 games. Chase Headley also homered in support of Tanaka, who is 4-1 with a 2.08 ERA in his last six starts.

Brian Cashman had an interesting point the other day, where he basically said that if Tanaka wanted to opt out, the Yankees would not offer more than what they currently owe him if he opted in. They will not “chase” him if he opts out. The thing is that he’s looking more and more likely to opt out, with the way that he has been pitching lately. Wouldn’t it just be the shittiest thing ever if Tanaka pitches great for the rest of the season but the Yankees don’t hit at all and still miss the playoffs and then lose Tanaka? If he’s going to do well and opt out, hopefully it will be for a winning team.

Anyhow, today was a good day, but even in that good day, the Twins destroyed the Royals and the Angels had a dramatic comeback win over the Rangers, so the Yankees didn’t gain any ground in the Wild Card chase. The Twins and the Angels are the anti-Yankees. They never give up, no matter their deficit, unlike the Yankees, who flop at the first sign of adversity. Luckily, today they were only tied when Matt Holliday hit a huge three-run home run.

Of course, Aaron Hicks got hurt again, as the Yankees can never run out their “main” lineup ever.

Sale vs. Severino on Sunday. Remember when we thought Severino might hang with Corey Kluber last Monday? Well, I assume we all know now that he won’t hang with Chris Sale. Hopefully the Angels, Orioles and Twins lose.
