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.

Thursday, September 28, 2017 Yanks top Rays, keep heat on in AL East

Luis Severino’s confidence bounced back with a sharp tuneup as he prepares for the first postseason start of his career, backed by homers off the bats of Starlin Castro, Greg Bird and Aaron Hicks as the Yankees defeated the Rays, 6-1, on Wednesday evening at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees (89-69) improved to a season-high 20 games over .500, though they remain three games behind the Red Sox—who beat Toronto on Wednesday—in the American League East.
“We have to play our season and not worry about Boston,” Severino said. “We are in the Wild Card and you have the opportunity to go to the playoffs. We’re hitting good, we’re playing good. We’re winning.”

Man, they’re playing so darn well that the one game playoff is just killer. Anyone can lose a one-game playoff. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t like 2015 where we were all legitimately concerned about the opposing starting pitcher. The Yankees are in a much better position now than they were back then, as Ervin Santana is no Dallas Keuchel, but again, anyone can lose a one-game playoff.

Anyhow, great win. Severino finished the season with a sub 3.00 ERA, which was awesome to see. The Yankees did a cute bit in the sixth inning, where Didi Gregorius pretended to interview the Yankee hitters after their home runs and Ronald Torreyes held a “camera” on them while Didi interviewed them (the mic was a Gatorade cup and the camera was a box of Gatorade).

Well, Thursday night will tell us if there is still a chance for the Yankees to possibly win the division, but obviously the odds are horrendous. The Red Sox would have to go 1-3 against the Astros while the Yankees would have to win their remaining 4 games or the reverse (Yankees go 3-1 while the Red Sox lose all 4). Not gonna happen. But hey, the fact that the Yankees might win 90 games is amazing in and of itself.
