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, July 15, 2017 Sanchez homers, but lead slips at Fenway

A zany bottom of the ninth inning on Friday night at Fenway Park left the Red Sox celebrating a 5-4 walk-off win over the Yankees without a hit leaving the infield at any point during the unlikely rally.

Perhaps, then, it was only fitting that the winning run came courtesy of a walk by Andrew Benintendi against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman, who blew the save.
It was quite a dramatic way for the rivals to open the second half. It was the first time the Red Sox defeated the Yankees on a walk-off walk since Aug. 7, 1956, when Ted Williams worked an 11th inning free pass against New York’s Tommy Byrne. It was the first walk-off walk for the Red Sox against any opponent since Trot Nixon on Sept. 23, 2000, against the Orioles.

“That 3-1 pitch, I was 90 percent take,” said Benintendi. “It was going to take a perfect pitch to swing at with how he was throwing.”

Of Chapman’s 23 pitches, just 11 were for strikes—only one a swinging strike. He didn’t record any outs as the Yankees were handed their Major League-leading 18th blown save of the season.

“Lead slips”? has the shittiest headlines.

Anyhow, the only thing positive I can say about the way that the Yankees manage to pull defeat from the jaws of victory constantly this past month is that at least all of these brutal losses have been piled together so that none of them really hurt that much anymore. It’s pretty much EXPECTED at this point.

Plus, come on, 9-18 in one-run losses. Even with a shitty bullpen, that’s a ridiculous number. That can’t continue like that. So there ya go, that’s the silver lining - things can’t possibly remain quite THIS shitty. It will still probably remain pretty shitty, though. Tomorrow’s an automatic loss and then Mitchell/Tanaka could be a shit show of epic proportions on Sunday, so…we could be looking at a .500 team by the end of play on Sunday. At least it will be broadcast on ESPN!
