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.

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 Yanks power up early, but win streak halted

The Yankees hit two impressive home runs in the first two innings on Tuesday, but those solo shots proved insufficient against a singles-filled Reds rally. Cincinnati scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning for a 5-3 victory that provided a split in the two-game series and ended New York’s six-game win streak.

Staked to a 2-0 lead on homers by Gary Sanchez in the first inning and Didi Gregorius in the second, Yankees starter CC Sabathia faced 10 batters in the bottom of the second while allowing five runs, six hits and a walk. Billy Hamilton’s two-run single with the bases loaded tied the game, and Joey Votto’s two-run single provided the go-ahead runs. Adam Duvall followed Votto with an RBI single.
After getting out of the second inning, Sabathia retired 10 in a row and 13 of 14, but the damage was done. He lasted six innings with five earned runs, seven hits, two walks, a hit batter and two strikeouts.

Ladies and gentlemen, your second place New York Yankees! This evil, evil division.

While a shitty game, the Yankees had the tying runners on base in the top of the ninth inning with just one out and one of their best hitters at the plate, but Gary Sanchez just happened to line into a game-ending double play. Oh well, it happens.

Of greater concern was CC sucking again. At least this was sort of one of those “eh, he didn’t pitch that bad” performances and not one of those “he just got crushed” deals. That’s something.

No game tomorrow, so we can just root for the Nationals to not suck against the Orioles again. Let’s hope that Pineda gets the good times going again on Thursday night when the Yankees host an impressive Houston team (some tough pitching matchups for the Yankees in this series, as the Astros have some guys pitching very well right now).
