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, June 17, 2017 Yanks can’t hold off A’s after Judge’s 23rd HR

A’s rookie Matt Chapman picked the perfect moment for his first Major League hit, delivering a two-run single in the eighth inning that gave the A’s a 7-6 win over the Yankees at the Coliseum on Friday night.

In the second straight back-and-forth affair between the teams, Chapman turned on Yankees reliever Jonathan Holder’s curveball and pulled it down the left-field line, scoring Yonder Alonso and Ryon Healy to give the A’s their second consecutive come-from-behind win.
Chapman and fellow rookies Jaycob Brugman and Chad Pinder knocked in three of the four runs the A’s scored in the second, the only damage allowed by Yankees starter Luis Severino, who went six innings.

The Yankees worked their way back into the game against A’s left-hander Sean Manaea. It started in the third inning with a three-run opposite-field homer from Northern California native Aaron Judge, his Major League-leading 23rd of the season.

Honestly, after a few of these, you sort of get numb to the pain of the loss, so this one didn’t hurt nearly as much as the previous night’s game. Especially when I still don’t know who they would have brought in to pitch the ninth, so even if the A’s hadn’t taken the lead in the 8th, I would not be surprised if they won it in the 9th if the Yankees had to use, like, Domingo German as their closer or whatever.

The bright side of the loss was seeing the offense impressively battle back yet again. Even without Gardner, Didi, Hicks and Sanchez, they still managed to score 6 runs. Good for them. This game is all on the pitchers. Severino was not sharp and the bullpen, well, the less said about the bullpen, the better.

I have no idea if it is Cessa or Tanaka tomorrow, but either one scares the shit out of me, so that does not bode well for the Yankees. Their chances of still being in first place at the close of this weekend rest mightily on the Houston Astros somehow getting at least one game against the Red Sox on Saturday or Sunday (the Red Sox pitchers “limped” into Houston to give up a whopping single run).
