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.

Monday, June 5, 2017 Yanks fall to Jays on late homer in finale

They lined up outside Rogers Centre by the thousands early on Sunday afternoon, hoping to collect one of the Josh Donaldson bobbleheads being handed out. The man of the hour sent the paying crowd and their tchotchkes home in style, launching a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning that lifted the Blue Jays to a 3-2 victory over the Yankees.

“I think we needed it,” said Toronto manager John Gibbons, after earning the series split. “I think it would have been a kick in the teeth had we not won that one. You lose three out of four at home, that’s never good—primarily because of where we’re sitting right now.”

Donaldson’s sixth home run of the season came off reliever Tyler Clippard, after starters Luis Severino and Marcus Stroman engaged in a pitchers’ duel that was as advertised—with both hurlers limiting their opponent to two runs. Matt Holliday drove in both runs off Stroman, denting the center-field wall with a fourth-inning double and legging out a sixth-inning fielder’s choice.

This division, man, it is just BRUTAL. The Blue Jays are a decent team and they’re in last place in this division!

Severino clearly didn’t have his best stuff today, so his performance was particularly impressive. It sucks that Tyler Clippard gave up the home run to Josh Donaldson, but sometimes your bullpen gives up runs, it happens. Aroldis Chapman’s return would be mighty nice, though, to get Betances back to the 8th inning (and even 7th inning with two outs, on occasion).

Just a quick thought - my favorite baseball player growing up (and I guess then he’s still my favorite baseball player, as things like that don’t really change) was Dave Winfield. At the end of his career, Winfield was a shell of his former self. He was so decrepit that the Cleveland Indians couldn’t even find a spot for him on their postseason roster (and just a few years earlier he literally WON the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays). Derek Jeter was awful when he retired. That’s how these things tend to go. You get old, you start to suck, you retire. So the fact that David Ortiz left the game while still playing awesomely? What a major boon that was for the other teams in the American League. I think about that as we get an off day before a big three-game series against Boston in the Bronx, which opens with Tanakatime, which does not bode well for the Yankees.
