The Secret to Beating the Yankees

You still haven't said how they're going to beat Verlander, Morton and Cole. You know A.J. is not going to the bullpen as early in the playoffs as he did during the regular season. So that 5-2 record is meaningless in October. If the Astros make another trade for a closer, it's going to be even tougher.

Even journeymen pitchers like the Tigers starter tonight, give them a hard time too. They haven't even faced Cole yet. I guarantee that if the Astros face the Yankees in the playoffs, they'll start Verlander, Morton and Cole in the first three games.



We're still waiting for anything intelligent from you!




these guys sit around waiting for us to lose so they can go off. lots of frustration has built up for them since the team has only lost 9 of the last 38 games. another 5 game winning streak by this very "flawed" team put him over the edge. couldn't wait for us to finally lose one.

Like a true mentally challenged person, he fixates on one thing. He isn't smart enough to see that we beat teams by usually taking advantage of their weaknesses. He must be some sort of troll, because he/it never has anything positive to say.

Hey dummy, as long as we score more runs than they do, it really doesn't matter WHO they score against does it?   If you were a true Yankee fan, you would be happy they found a way to beat a team that had our number for a while.  So get your ass back where you were kicked out of before you darkened our door!!

As I said, you can't count on the Yankees to beat a team like the Astros in playoffs as they beat them in the regular season. First, the starters will go deeper in the game in the playoffs. Secondly, the Astros could make a trade for a closer by then. Did you guys see how A.J. avoided the team's weak bullpen last year by using starters in relief appearances?

Their starters can't throw 150 pitches per game, even in the playoffs.  You act like every game will follow the same script. We are capable of beating them.

I'm more of a Yankee fan than all of you. But I don't ignore the issues. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think they can beat any team with the flaws they have. 




I think the Red Sox and the Astros have more flaws than the Yankees, and as a result, the Yankees will beat either and or both of them in October.

crod, frankly, no one can count on any one team definitely beating another in the playoffs. However, NYY pitchers shut out the Astros a remarkable 28 consecutive innings in the series at Houston. Regular season or not, that is a tremendous accomplishment. 


I believe you are being a bit unfair regarding the Yanks vs the Astros. In the ALCS, it took Houston the full 7 games to win, and the two 2-1 losses the Yankees had easily could have gone the other way. Our pitchers really matched theirs almost to a draw. Yes, the Astros may add more talent, but so may the Yankees. I can see the Yanks adding another bullpen power arm if they don't see a starter worth trading for.


As was done with Pedro, the Yanks can be superb at staying close to a top arm and still managing to win. Cole and Morton are pitching well above the backs of their baseball cards. The Astros are beatable, as are the Red Sox, Yankees, and Indians. Any one of these teams is capable of beating the other.

Must be a sad life for the Crod fellow, his only excitement in life is when a team he doesn't watch on a regular basis loses.

Sox troll... He never has anything positive to say about the Yanks.
