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, October 21, 2017 Yanks can’t close out ALCS; Game 7 tonight

Another dominant performance by Justin Verlander saved the Astros’ season for at least one more day and forced a Game 7 against the Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

Verlander threw seven scoreless innings for the Astros, who got clutch hits from Brian McCann and Jose Altuve in the fifth and a spectacular catch at the wall in the seventh by George Springer to beat the Yankees, 7-1, on Friday night in Game 6 at Minute Maid Park.
“For us to get to Game 7, I’m glad we played well enough to have home-field advantage,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “It’s going to be here in Houston.”

The Astros, looking to advance to their second World Series, will meet the Yankees, who are aiming for their 41st AL pennant, on Saturday in a win-or-go-home game. Since the LCS expanded to seven games in 1985, home teams are 18-7 in Game 7s. The home team has won the first six games of this ALCS.

This reminded me a lot of the first two games, where every close call went against the Yankees (not umpire calls, although the strike zone certainly changed abruptly for Severino in the fifth inning), I mean just lucky stuff,. That is, until David Robertson came into the game and was just terrible. Honestly, I don’t know if I’d even want Robertson to pitch in Game 7 at all. He might have to be given the Chad Green Post-Game 2 treatment.

Anyhow, as we all expected when the season began, everything will boil down to CC Sabathia bailing them out in the decisive Game 7. Let’s hope that he had at least one miraculous performance left in that creaky old left arm (fun fact - did you know that CC is right handed? He just throws with his left hand. All the normal, everyday stuff he does with his right hand). Plus, let us hope that the second engagement for McCullers Charlie Morton (why are they starting Morton over McCullers?) is like Game 3.
