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, April 9, 2017 ‘Pen can’t hold lead on tough day for Yankees

The Orioles don’t care much about preseason projections, as they’re typically picked at or near the bottom of the American League East, and 2017 was no different. But once again, the O’s—who reeled off seven wins to start last year—find themselves the early divisional leaders.

Backed by another outstanding effort from their bullpen, and a clutch hit from Hyun Soo Kim, the Orioles roared back to a 5-4 series-clinching victory over the Yankees on Saturday that makes them a perfect 4-0. The O’s are the only undefeated team remaining in the Majors.

You know things are bad when even the super-friendly headlines sound worried.

Anyhow, if there is any solace to be had in this awful start to the Yankees season it is this - they entered the season with three young hitters that you could reasonably expect would A. perform well and B. maybe even improve and all three of them have now been injured to start the season. You might say, “Uhmmm…how is that supposed to give us solace?” and it is the fact that despite those terrible results, and despite the bullpen pitching brilliant in games when it doesn’t matter and awful in games where it does matter, despite their star pitcher having an 11 ERA through two games, despite all of that, they’ve still been in most of these games. That could mean that they’re just good enough to keep things close, or it could mean that they’re going through a rough patch, statistically, where things just happen to be breaking against them - like their coin flips are coming up heads four times in a row. Stuff like that.

Plus, if you are going to suck, the very start of the season is generally the time of the year to do it, for a number of reasons - namely that there is more time to course correct and that if you just outright fall apart, then the team has time to sell.

But yes, for now, that was certainly a tough day for the Yankees.
