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, August 31, 2017 Yanks win opener, gain ground on Red Sox

The Yankees are not downplaying the importance of this weekend as they continue to chase the Red Sox for the top spot in the American League East, and their hopes for a meaningful September race remained alive with a 6-2 victory on Thursday evening at Yankee Stadium.

As the rivals opened a four-game set that marks their final meeting of the season, New York closed within 4 1/2 games of the top spot in the division as CC Sabathia continued his season-long dominance of the Sox with six innings of one-run, four-hit ball, improving to 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in four starts against them this season.

The Yankees obviously aren’t winning the division, but any wins that they get are huge in this suddenly intense Wild Card race (that’s how it goes when you lose three straight and all the teams chasing you win three straight - suddenly the race gets tight). So them beating the Red Sox and the Orioles blowing an early lead against the Toronto Blue Jays is very big for this team at the moment.

CC Sabathia was the man and Gary Sanchez and Greg Bird reminded us that coming into this season, it was those two hitters that we were most excited to see. Any day Aaron Judge wants to get his shit together would be cool by me.

Matt Holiday returns tomorrow as rosters expand. It is unclear if he will go right back into the starting lineup, but he probably will. I don’t think how players perform in rehab starts really mean much, one way or the other. Obviously you’d prefer to see them tear the cover off of the ball, but not doing so I don’t think is a death knell or anything like that.

We’ll find out tomorrow what happens to Romine and Sanchez. I find it hard to believe that Sanchez’s suspension will be cut down, but perhaps Romine might go down from 2 games to 1 game. The Yankees still have to make a 40-man move to find a place for new addition Eric Kratz. Maybe they are waiting to see if maybe somehow the suspensions are both overruled? Would Sanchez have to start serving it tomorrow? That would suck.
