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.
sabernar

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.

NY Post: Yankees are all-in on Carlos Beltran, and that’s a problem

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Late Wednesday night in a near-empty Yankees clubhouse at Camden Yards, Carlos Beltran was talking about the team’s current situation.

“We need to get going, no doubt about that. It’s only nine games and we have to find a way to turn the page and concentrate on Tampa,’’ Beltran said after the Yankees’ record dipped to 3-6 following dropping two of three to the Orioles. “Every team in baseball is going to go through this. We have to pick it up and start playing better baseball.’’

As the words spilled out of Beltran’s mouth, they sounded like they could have been about himself because he takes a .171 (6-for-35) batting average, a .211 on-base percentage and a .497 OPS into Friday night’s series opener against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Asked if he was including himself in those words, Beltran confirmed it.

I was certain that a 37-39 year old Beltran would hit to the back of his baseball card.  That’s what 37-39 year old players do, right?

NY Post: The troubling signs Tigers have fleeced Yankees again

The replacement for Derek Jeter is playing horribly and the main guy traded for Didi Gregorius is performing like a Cy Young candidate, thus the Yankees’ most important move of the offseason — and arguably one of their most vital in years — is a Di-minus one week into the schedule.

The key words in the previous sentence were “one week,” and Shane Greene is unlikely to remain the best pitcher in his own rotation, much less the league.

But there is a little more than an early read to this. Historically, when Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and Detroit counterpart Dave Dombrowski have traded with each other, the results have greatly favored Dombrowski.

Eh.  It’s one week.  I don’t think Gregorius is any good or will be any good at any point in the future, but I’m not sure that Greene is all that good either.

Look at this way.  If the Yankees would have won three of the six games they’ve lost, they’d be 6-3 and tied for first place.

Yankees.com: Yanks can’t finish rally as O’s even series

The O’s got a pair of RBIs—including another homer—from a red-hot Adam Jones and used a stellar seven-inning start from Miguel Gonzalez to top the Yankees, 4-3, in Tuesday’s series-evening win.

Gonzalez (1-1) set a new career high with 10 strikeouts and held New York to just one run. The righty has pitched to a 1.42 ERA in his first two starts this season.

“He was incredible,” catcher Caleb Joseph said. “We’ve been talking about the split-finger for a while now, trying to get it down. It showed up tonight, didn’t it? He’s great. He mixed all of his pitches there, really stayed in the count. The thing about Miggy is he’s got a lot of weapons, and when he gets ahead, he’s dangerous.”

Yankees starter CC Sabathia went seven innings in the loss, with Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran driving in runs. New York closed the gap to one run on left fielder Alejandro De Aza’s eighth-inning fielding error, but Zach Britton came on to record his second save of the year.

CC is one of the weirdest starters out there - it’s like he’s guaranteed to give up 4 runs, but he will also give you 7 innings. And that does have value, but it’s pretty odd.

So far this year, the Yankees have at least been pretty resilient. Have to give them some credit for that.

NYDN: Stephen Drew hits pinch-hit grand slam to lead Yankees past Orioles, 6-5

BALTIMORE — It was just how the Yankees Drew it up, right?

When the Yankees sent Stephen Drew to the plate to pinch-hit for Brett Gardner in the seventh inning Monday night, it raised some immediate concern over the left fielder’s health.

Gardner had been hit by a pitch on the right wrist in the first inning, struck in that spot for the second time in less than a week. He had remained in the game for five more innings, but with the bases loaded and the Yankees trailing by two runs, Gardner told Joe Girardi he might want to find another hitter.

I guess Drew’s already paid for his contract.

Yankees.com: Yanks pound Buchholz to back Tanaka in win over Sox

NEW YORK—Alex Rodriguez ripped a bases-clearing double, Chase Headley and Stephen Drew slugged back-to-back homers, and the Yankees celebrated their biggest thumping of a Red Sox starter in nearly 70 years in a 14-4 victory on Sunday night at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees grabbed their first lead of the weekend with a seven-run first inning off Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, who hung around to absorb a career-high 10 runs (nine earned) over 3 1/3 innings. New York hadn’t hung a 10-spot on a Boston starter since June 21, 1945, when it knocked around Dave “Boo” Ferriss.
“It just takes the burden off,” Headley said. “We had been grinding for runs, so to get up there and really pour some on in the first inning kind of lets you go. You’re not on cruise control, but you can enjoy the at-bats, you can enjoy the game, and really let the game come to you at that point.”

What’s next?  Cats and dogs living together?
