56, it isn't losing a couple of games in and of itself that has some fans very upset. It is overall losing 5 games to a team that our Scranton team probably would not lose 5 games to. The Yanks are far superior to the Orioles. Yankee hitting should be pulverizing the terrible Baltimore pitching, and the O's have been in an offensive funk for a while, until this series.


If the Yankees were losing games to Cleveland, or a decent team, it would be not issue. But when the team ahead of you is bulldozing its way through the bad teams, it leaves little room for error, in particular giving away games to the worst team in baseball.




Agree totally. It seems like the Yankees were not prepared mentally for this series which they should have been after they lost 3 out of 4 to the Orioles at Yankee Stadium and the manager treated these games with no sense of urgency. Not taking out Sabathia and Tanaka when it was obvious they were spent and going an extra inning with Green last night. I knew when Green faced Machado last night something bad would happen. Throwing all fastballs to a hitter like that is a recipe for disaster. I was just hoping when he hit the ball it would stay in the park but unfortunately it didn't.D-Rob versus Machado instead of a tiring Green who throws all fastballs was a much better matchup. And even that series against them at Yankee Stadium Boone rests Didi when he was as hot as a firecracker and we already had lost 2 out of the first 3 games. I think Boone's attitude toward these games has rubbed off on his players. Boone to me has a lot to prove as a manager. He hasn't proven anything yet.  


 And there are some people here not you who are really starting to aggitate me. They think I am really a Red Sox fan and a troll because I say the Red Sox are the better team. How could that be when I said last year the Yankees were better than the Red Sox and should have finished first. I try to be a straight shooter but unfortunately it gets me into trouble. I am going to always say what I think. Unfortunately I had to call one of these people out saying the person knew nothing about baseball and the person responded with I know nothing. And it is not my style to attack people but at this point I had enough.


I also was trying to make the point that getting Stanton was overkill and he is not really a fit on this team because it hurts the team to have two players who will strike out well over 200 times even though they hit a lot of home runs. I also understand he fell into their laps but this was not the best thing for the Yankees especially since both Stanton and Judge both bat right handed. I swear there are people here who never watched a game in their lives. The Yankees are a team that gives you a lot of fantasy baseball value but that doesn't always translate on the field. And the Red Sox lineup as good as it is are pretty much carried by their first five hitters with the rest of them just doing enough. Jackie Bradley Jr is a bad offensive player, they don't get much from their catchers, Devers has been hot and cold all season and their production at second base is about average. But their first five are so good it makes no difference. And the first three are slump proof. Betts, Benintendi  and JD seem to hit every single game.


The Yankees are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get.  A team that dependent on home runs is always going to be hit or miss. There is nobody you can count on to produce on a regular basis. I don't think I have ever seen as many extended slumps as I have seen this season from Yankees players. But this is what you will get from an all or nothing team. And just because the Yankees are on pace to set the all time record for home runs in a season that doesn't mean they are a great offensive team. The Red Sox bottom part of the lineup isn't all that good but their lineup finds many different ways to score runs compared to the Yankees lineup.And the Red Sox lineup is almost never shut down by mediocre or less than mediocre pitchers. Those first five in their lineup will get you almost every time.

Some might say Red Sox look so good because they beat up on terrible teams, as they should, but we saw what happened to the Yankees when they played a terrible team, they are .500 against the Orioles and that is what is currently costing them first place in the standings today. So it looks like the Red Sox are beating up the awful teams and playing .500 against the good one's. That might look very good for the regular season but not October baseball, so we shall see how it all plays itself out when the competition is cranked up. At least we can take comfort in the fact that the Yankees have winning records against the Astros, Red Sox and Mariners, with the Indians series starting tonight.  That may bode well for possible playoff series matchups, who knows. Still wish they were mopping the floor with the Orioles, would have been in 1st place, but it is what it is, on to the next games.

I remember those simpler times too. 8 team leagues, no wild cards or layered playoffs. This is a different game now, and this year is especially differennt if they lose the division to the Red Sox. That sets up a 1 game playoff to get into the playoffs most likely with the Mariners and against James Paxton. This team can win 105 games and end up going home and not making the playoffs. That's why these regular season games are so important. 




So many things can happen at this point - maybe we fight for the division, maybe we fight for the wild card, maybe Seattle has to use their Ace on the last day of the season just to win a wild card or division.  Maybe we run away wit the division and win by 8 games.  It's all good problems to have!  Better than the Mets who have to ask themselves "which Ace do I deal as we rebuild and start all over?"

With all due respect you cannot panic and treat games during the regular season as if they were a deciding playoff game.  When you run a long race you have to pace yourself.  Sometimes you don't put in your best reliever, sometimes you rest a player.  I'm old school but I do know that the game is played at a much higher level and faster pace.  Guys are faster, stronger and throw harder than ever.  We may yearn for the 'good old days' (I know I do many times) but we have to accept that the game we love has changed, and it's not all bad!  I'm enjoying this season like some of the best seasons I have followed!

Yes we can speculate all we can until the cows come home what will happen the rest of the season and we all have our opinions but at this point I guess we have to let it play out. And another variable is who does what by the trading deadline. The rosters might look different on August 1.


And as for the Mets Beningo and Roberts were having a discussion the other day. Saying the Mets have three ways to go to try to turn things around. Number 1 is start spending in the expensive stores and go for the top free agents. Number 2 is to trade their best assets meaning deGrom and Syndergaard and try to commit to a rebuild. And number 3 is to try to bandaid things together to try to put a decent team on the field. They said the Mets will choose door number 3 and I agree because that is the Mets mindset. They won't ever have a top 5 payroll so forget number 1. And since they are competing with the Yankees they would likely not choose number 2. And even though it has failed before especially this season when things could not have worked out worse the Mets in all likelihood will go for door number 3. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This is like having a house that is completely falling apart and you need to knock it down and build a new one but instead keep on trying to patch it together.
