    Yanks continue to falter soon we will be chasing them in the standings at this rate of play.

    And I'm still delighted that Cano will be playing for Seattle the rest of his career instead of in pinstripes.

    Have to wonder if Cashman and/or Girardi are on the line this year. Steinbrenner cannot be too thrilled. Meanwhile, the Orioles have come through a tough stretch of schedule with flying colors. Right now, they look as good as any team in baseball. Showalter is arguably the best manager in the game. This could be their year.

    At owners meetings, Hal Steinbrenner says Yanks expecting ARod return. "That's what he's planning for, and that's what we're planning for."


    Steinbrenner also said he hasnt decided what to do about GM Brian Cashman, whose contract is up after season. "Let me get to october first."

     

    B4 the game I wasn't 1 who thought this was a big game

    but the way we lost sure made it a tad bigger

    OUCH

    O's R looking good & sitting pretty 

    good thing we know how all that can change in a week

    nevermind 6 weeks

    [object HTMLDivElement]   I thought the plan was okay. Betances had to get one more out, then Robertson for four outs. Just didn't work out.  The Yankee's problem is not scoring runs.  There is a lot of that going around.

    yeah I have no beef with the plan

    but it did sting

    I wonder how long Castillo would need to play a mlb game

    adrenalin can be a powerful thing

    if Bcash isn't bringing in Castillo 4 an offensive spark

    then he should bring refsnyder up and we I can  cross my fingers

    I am not one to blame a bad year on injuries, but in fairness to the Yankees, their starting pitching has been ravaged this year. I think the only remaining SP right now who began the year in the rotation is Kuroda. No team can win many games in that situation. On the other hand, why be fair to the Yankees?

    The Yanks have used 12 SP'ers- 11 with more than 4 starts.

    Phelps has more GS'd than Kuroda, but he's on the DL now too.

    Reminds me of the 2009 Sox rotation.

    Even though your pitching staff is completely different than the one you started with,

    going into the season, I felt like your offense was the bigger concern over your pitching.

    While I have your attention, here is yet some more evidence about how the Yankees are lucky,

    and that they do not possess some special skill, clutch factor, or an ability to win the close games.

    Yes, the Yankee offense has not been scoring a lot of runs this year. But by all rights the SP should be ranked near the bottom in the AL. They are now ranked 7th in ERA. I would say that given the injuries that is the most surprising (and distressing) thing about the team.

    Just giving you a hard time man...sorry.


    I don't know how meaningful the '$ per win' figure really is.  The Yankees and Red Sox always spend a huge amount per win.  But it has paid off not just with regular season wins, but with titles, with huge revenues, and perhaps most importantly, with enormous growth in the values of their franchises.

    Maybe this will finally get through to posters who have constantly complained this year about the Red Sox being cheap and about payroll.

    Spending a lot of money on payroll guarantees NOTHING.

    Focus on whether or not the Sox get good players, whether they're all young, veterans or a mix. Getting good players is what's important. PAYROLL IS MEANINGLESS in terms on whether you have a good team.

    The only importance of payroll is having flexibility to spend a bit more to get a player you really want and not being handcuffed to make the right moves.
