    The only guys they have who can pitch are Sabathia and NOva and we own Sabathia. They are no threat!

    The Yankees have received some terrific pitching performances from unlikely sources this year.  Their problem right now is those performances are becoming fewer and further between, and they never know the sources.  Nova was pretty good yesterday, horrible in the start prior, terrific in the start prior to that.  Hughes was horrible in his last start, terrific int he start prior.  Colon was very good yesterday, but for the first time in over a month.  Over the course of the season, that has translated into a lot of wins, but who do they trust with the ball in a must-win game?

    You can make that 3 up in the win column... Two innings had significant 3's, back to back, to back homeruns for the Yankees in the top of the 6th. Bases loaded no outs in the bottom of the 8th for the O's, and Roberston K's 3 straight swinging. New York - Top of 6th SCORE Brian Matusz pitching for Baltimore NYY BAL       M Teixeira singled to left. 3 3 R Cano homered to left, M Teixeira scored. 5 3 N Swisher homered to left. 6 3 C Jakubauskas relieved B Matusz. 6 3 A Jones homered to left center. 7 3 R Martin singled to left. 7 3             Baltimore - Bottom of 8th SCORE Ivan Nova pitching for New York NYY BAL J Hardy singled to center. 8 3 N Markakis walked, J Hardy to second. 8 3 D Robertson relieved I Nova. 8 3 A Jones singled to right, J Hardy to third, N Markakis to second. 8 3 V Guerrero struck out swinging. 8 3 M Reynolds struck out swinging. 8 3 R Adams struck out swinging. 8 3 Nova wins his 10th straight. A record of 14-4 seems pretty decent for that down to earth rookie. The Yankees are 17-5 in games started by Nova this season. Seemed like a good time to share 3 more facts with you all.

    yup you got that right, entering play yesterday you guys were down 2 games by virtue of the Sox having won four more than your boys while both having 51 losses. After you guys split with the Orioles you closed the gap to 3 in the win column but also fell back by 1 in the loss column...which it's a win win for both of us...you gained a game in the win column, we gained a game in the loss column...can it get any better!

    It's kind of like having a Colon on your fantasy team...he pitched great, but the yanks lost...talk about a win, win!

    AGAIN

    The Yanks cannot tie, Sox won the season series already.  So the Yanks are another game down because of this.

    So the Yanks are really 2 down in the loss column ... if they were tied in the loss column, they would still be in second. 

    Those game the Sox won already were HUGE.

    Days off and way schedule road trips are slotted give Red Sox slight probability advantage. Probability range is 98 to 100.

    The first road trip starts with a short 52M up and down flight to Toronto. It is followed by a 2 hour flight to Tampa. Most importantly is a day off follows the 2.5 hour back to Boston.

    The final road trip begins after another day off before @NY and @ Baltimore which involve short commuter travel time to end season.

    About as easy a travel schedule as it gets.

    16 home games X .615 = 10 + 13 road games X .617 = 8 Total = 18 or 100W

    Red Sox play all but 3 games v. AL East and are 31-15 v AL East = .673

    .673 X 29 = 17 wins + 1 or 2 v. Texas = 100 or 101

    Yankees 17 road x .596 = 10 + 14 home x .612 = 9 = 20 Total = 98

    Yankees have slightly easier strength of schedule but west coast travel, more road games and doubleheader compressed schedule strongly favors Red Sox.

    Probability range Red Sox 98-100 Yankees 97-99

    Since tie goes to Red Sox, probabilty odds strongly say Red Sox win division.

    Once it becomes clear one team is out of division race, likey Yankees, both teams will rest for playoffs and play a lot of subs the last 1 or 2 games of the season and numbers will likely skew probability range by 1 or 2 games less and a 97-98 1st and 96-97 in 2nd.

    100 is a difficult bench mark and a nice cap feather that frequently means WS but unless it can be done while allowing starters to rest near end it would be counter productive to even consider it.

    Important history Notes:

    The last Red Sox team to win 100 or more was 65 years ago when the 1946 Red Sox won 104 games in a 154 game season, and only 3 Red Sox teams in 103 year Red Sox era history have won 100 games. Only 100 or more team not to win world title was 1946 team, losing WS in 7 to Cards

    1912 Red Sox won team record 105 in a 152 game season
    1915 Red Sox won 101 in a 151 games played season

    In the last 32 years, only 2 Red Sox teams have won more than 95 games, both winning a world title.

    Pray Buch is healthy for playoffs and Phillies are upset and/or get bad side of injury luck

    Rare to see a Sunday scheduled day off.

    It wasn't a scheduled day off. It was a day off due to storm and game bumped up.

    canetime, viewpoint neutral posts tend to be received with less acrimony. Softlaw pays no attention to offending people win following the polar star of truth.

    If you spent less time filtering UR personal disdain threw Wake, Jake, and being obsessed with UR ego, you might just focus UR energy toward typing some of UR better posts.

    I post the truth on all players. You need to control your hatred towards Japanese players and not lie about DiceK being on the DL in 2007, and his fine seasons of 2007 and 2008.
