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.

Yankees.com: Yankees scuffle early; rally falls inches short

Dallas Keuchel continued his mastery of the Yankees as he returned to the scene of one of his most memorable performances, and Jake Marisnick threw out the potential tying run in the ninth inning, sealing the Astros’ 3-2 victory on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.

Gary Sanchez made a bid to tie the game with a two-out RBI single off Houston closer Ken Giles, but Marisnick came up firing with a strong throw to home plate, where catcher Brian McCann slapped a tag on Jacoby Ellsbury for the final out.
“That’s what you’re in there for, to kind of make a play like that,” said Marisnick, a defensive replacement. “It was fun.”

I forgot Marisnick was a defensive replacement. Damn.

Anyhow, we all presumed that the Yankees would lose this game, but it was still killer to watch because they really did scrap and claw against Keuchel and the Astros bullpen and they just couldn’t get a big hit with runners in scoring position. That is, until Gary Sanchez came through with a two-out single with runners on second and third in the bottom of the ninth inning. You have to send the runner there, but it was always going to be a tough play for Ellsbury to score on since the outfield was in on the play. Honestly, as I said in the game thread, I take more out of Sanchez actually coming through with the big hit than I do that it turned out not to matter. The Yankees battled and that was great to see.

Also, Pineda pitched pretty well and the bullpen was dominant once again.

This was always going to be a tough series, but they played well tonight, even if it was in a losing effort.

Let’s hope that Jordan Montgomery can get the good times going again on Friday, especially since the shittiest Astros pitcher happens to be going Saturday, which could easily be rained out, allowing them to skip him. Ugh.
