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.

Sunday, July 23, 2017 Judge belts 32nd HR, but Yanks fall in extras

Another Aaron Judge home run wasn’t enough for the Yankees on Saturday as Nelson Cruz singled home Ben Gamel in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Mariners pulled off a 6-5 walk-off win in a back-and-forth affair at Safeco Field.

Gamel, acquired from the Yankees in August, scorched a leadoff double off Adam Warren, who then intentionally walked Robinson Cano before Cruz delivered with his American League-leading 75th RBI for Seattle’s fifth walk-off victory of the year

I truly do believe in the theory that most close losses are just statistical noise, and that the Yankees are just running into some astronomically bad luck the last month and a half (they’re 9-19 in one-run games. That’s crazy), but man, it sure is difficult to convince yourself when it feels like every reliever who pitches well when the game ISN’T on the line suddenly pitches poorly when it IS. Like David Robertson was great the other day with a 2-run lead. Then in a tie game he gives up a home run. Or Adam Warren has been lights out…except when he pitched in the 10th in a tie game and got rocked. It’s just very, very frustrating to watch.

Especially when the Yankees won the first two games of the series to give us hope that they might actually pull out a series win, only to dash said hopes.

That said, while the Yankees probably still split this series, they at least came to their senses and have pulled Luis Cessa from the rotation and are instead pitching Caleb Smith on Sunday. Win or lose, that decision makes me feel a whole lot better about the finale of this series. Caleb Smith could easily lose the game (he literally lost the only game he’s ever pitched), but he gives you hope that he might actually win it, something that Luis Cessa doesn’t give you. So hey, at least Sunday’s game will be interesting to watch! And boy, it sure is great to see young talent be rewarded.
