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’ run ends with Game 7 loss to Astros

The deafening roars began on the first pitch thrown by Charlie Morton in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, and they didn’t stop. Solo homers by Evan Gattis in the fourth inning and Jose Altuve in the fifth rocked Minute Maid Park, and a two-run double by Brian McCann later in the fifth sent the ballpark into a frenzy.

The party was just getting started.

Only four years after losing a club-record 111 games—in their first year in the AL in 2013—the Astros completed a remarkable run to the World Series by beating the Yankees, 4-0, on Saturday night to win the ALCS and send Houston to its second Fall Classic.

The Astros pretty clearly outplayed the Yankees. The Yankees scored only three runs in their four games in Houston. You’re not going to win many games with that kind of offensive output. Morton/McCullers was just too much for the Yankees.

The Yankees pulled out one of their classic “Relievers performing only when the game is out of reach” games, with Tommy Kahnle giving up an awful double to Brian McCann with two outs in the fifth. Since the Yankees scored no runs, the game was already lost as soon as CC gave up a solo home run to Evan Gattis, but it was still brutal to see Kahnle unable to put McCann away with two strikes. Sticking with Kahnle made sense there, he just got beat by a mediocre hitter. Sometimes, good players suck. The Yankees saw that with D-Rob last night.

If the Yankees want to get back here next year, they really have to keep Tanaka, so hopefully that works out.

All in all, this was a productive season, but they need to do even better next year. Hopefully we get to see Gleyber next year!
