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.

I never thought this series was coming back to Houston.  While the Yankees are now the favorites to win this series, they are probably the underdog in each of the two games that are potentially going to be played.

The good news is that Justin Verlander is no Lance McCullers or Dallas Keuchel.  The bad news is Luis Severino is no CC Sabathia or Sonny Gray or Masahiro Tanaka.  In fact, by Game Score two of Severino’s worst three starts in the regular season were versus Houston, against whom he pitched a total of 7.2 innings while allowing 15 hits , nine runs and four walks.  That’s not particularly good.  We all know that Verlander has dominated the Yankees all season, holding them to one run and averaging 13 K per nine innings.  Dominant.

If there is a Game 7, all momentum will have shifted back to Houston and it’s essentially a guaranteed loss for the Yankees.  The Yankees don’t have to win tonight but I am certain that whomever wins tonight’s game will win the AL pennant and earn the privilege of losing to the Dodgers in the World Series.

The fact that the Yankees have won three games in the ALCS is cool, but it would be even cooler if they won a fourth one.
