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.

Sunday, May 28, 2017 Yanks thwart A’s no-hit bid, back CC’s 9 K’s

CC Sabathia continued the Yankees’ run of strong starting pitching with a season-high nine strikeouts and Matt Holliday’s homer broke up a no-hit bid in the sixth inning, leading the Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Athletics on Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees starters have compiled a 1.56 ERA in five starts during this homestand, a trend that Sabathia continued by picking up his third straight victory. The veteran left-hander recovered from a 25-pitch first inning to blank Oakland into the sixth, with Ryon Healy’s RBI double shattering the shutout.

“Throwing offspeed pitches for strikes was a little rough in that first inning, but I was able to settle in,” Sabathia said. “I think [the key was] just getting ahead. We got ahead pretty early and I was able to put guys away. Early in the count, we threw some strikes, and that helped us out a lot.”

Well, THAT could have gone worse. The Yankee offense has hit a bit of a roadblock these last two games. Friday night wasn’t as big of a deal, but getting no-hit by a guy just recalled from the minors (after being sent down because of his ineffectiveness) was disappointing.

Luckily, CC Sabathia pitched very well and Adam Warren came in and got a big strikeout in the seventh inning (also, CC was saved from giving away the lead by an amazing play in the sixth inning where a popup with a runner on third was hit into a tough place for anyone to get to and the ball bounced out of Starlin Castro’s glove…and right into the glove of an incoming Aaron Judge! Wow, what a run-saving play!). Later, after Tyler Clippard struggled in the eighth inning, Dellin Betances came in and was dominant, striking out two batters with the trying run on third and then easily blowing through the Oakland batters in the ninth.

The series closes out Sunday afternoon, with Michael Pineda taking on Andrew Triggs, who is a decent pitcher, which does not bode well for the Yankees.
