      Cant argue there. ...though... I prefer to think the Sox rose to the challenge. They really struggled with this series. ...I have such little faith in this team. After the single in the 9th, I cant say I wasnt expecting a Sox comeback.

      So they are 81-62 tied for the AL East. 16 games to go...Here's what's left:
      TB for 3
      Off Day
      Tor for 3
      Oak for 3
      @ Min for 3
      @ Tor for 4

      So the good news is.... they're schedule is kind of soft. They really need to play well against Tampa and put the nail in their coffin. Oakland is playing well. ...but Toronto and Minn might help us out.

      The Os have:
      @ Oak for 3
      @ Sea for 3
      Off Day
      @ Bos for 3
      Tor for 3
      Off Day
      Bos for 3

      So they have a West Coast swing....that they are starting without an off day after two extra inning wins. Maybe they'll sputter against Oak and Sea. I'll be rooting for Boston big time from here on out.

      Boston will be fielding a mostly AA and AAA team the last 2 weeks of the season "to better assess their talent" while tanking the team to get a better draft pick slot. I'd be amazed if they won any of those 6 Baltimore games.

      And they didnt even have to face Clay.

      Oakland swept us in 4 games.

      TB. Is Tampa pitching pitching pitching.

      Sure CC has to be better and Pettite coming back strong helps. But a couple guys gotta get this offence going.

      Lets see what do we have here.

      CCs record drops to 3-8 against the weak kitting Rays.

      Yankees in another close game go 1-6 RISP [whats that now 3-40 in their last 4 games?] Any one remember when they had 2 hits in the same game with a RISP

      Yankees are now 0-54 when trailing after 8....

      Beng please tell me your wife logged on under your account and posted this,please!

      Come on man..it's mid sept. and despite all the injuries to KEY players and despite the fact they can't hit for **** with RISP we still have 1st place.

      Pettitte is coming back next week and by October he should be around 85% effective.

      That puts possibly Nova or Garcia in the pen with Joba who's been pitching much better .

      Here is how I feel about the yanks and October, if they can win the east and not have to play that wild

      card game and get home field in the first round they will go to the ALCS. Just wish they would have

      ended with a better record than Texas .

      I think you and I are both an agreement that we kinda thought this a month ago?

      The team cant hit worth a damn with RISP OR Bases loaded. They are a HR or bust offense.

      The team HAS NEVER WON A GAME THIS YEAR when trailing after 8inning ..0-54. There is no magic. No team toughness.

      CC is atleast usually good heading into the postseason and then is average in the Postseason. He is getting started early this year on being average [I believe he is hurt].

      85% of Pettite isnt good enough for this offense.

      Nova and Hughes are the keys. 2 guys that most of you wanted gone time and time again.

      Kuroda I think will be good. But no matter what happens CC will get the first start because of Joes loyalty.

      Soriano has 39 saves. Like I said earlier, the effects of not having Mo in the regular season wont hurt the Yankees. But it will in the postseason. Batters are at a severe mental disadvantage when they step into the batters box against Mo in October. Plus it hurts our depth big time.

      The team is BELLOW 500 since mid July. Should they make the postseason they will probably be the worst team of the bunch.

      Can they win? Sure. Just get in and see what happens.

      But only the most homeristic [not a word] Yankee fans would say they are the favorite.

      They got swept in 4 games against the A's. I am looking foward to that series in a week or so. This team has to hit better against good pitching.

      i don't think anyone here said they were the "favorites"

      and to say " can they win sure,just get in and see what happens" is kind of covering both fences.

      like if they do win you can say see i called it if they lose we you covered that too..

      and about the team having "no heart" come on i mean i understand you cannot use injuries as an

      excuse but really?? losing gardner,arod,tex,martin all to the DL at one point or the year that has nothing to do with the lack of offense at times?

      favorites no but as good as a chance as anyone else YES!!!

      you remind me of the broadcasters i can't stand who say just look out for the rays don't let them get in cause their pitching is so good,but look what happened last year. they got destroyed in the post season.

      seriously who's good this year? nobody/

      you mean oth then you? weren't you the one that said about a week ago that you would be surprised if they didn't make the ws or some crap?

      you might not think that no team heading into the playoffs is good and thats fine. But the reality is the Yankees [if they make it] will be the worst of the bunch as they limp into the postseason. There bellow 500 record for roughly the last 2 months of the season is evidence of that.

      Yea Teix hurts Arod hurts [Martin was never on DL was he] ect. But the A's don't have any 25 million dollar players, nor do the O's and they seem to be managing.

      I would like our chances better if say Gardner were here. But he isn't so I am just being realistic.

      I also don't care about playing "both sides of the fence".

      Its kinda better then changing my prediction on a daily basis.

      If the Yankees get in yes they can win. They aren't that much worse then any other team. But if I had to put money on it I would say no. There is no reason for me to think a team playing 500 since mid july will win the WS.

      great all round game.

      It would be nice to get a W when Robertson or Soriano don't have to pitch but Kuroda was a victim of some off plays so it is what it is [game closer then it should have been]

      Lets go A's

      yankees have just as good of a chance to get to the WS as anyone has in the AL imo,if you want to take that as i said they were "favorites" lol go ahead.

      not gonna catch texas,but no reason they can't be the 2nd seed. Seriously i asked before who really is better? and don't say tampa please.

      i don't look at players as money or how you say "25 million dollar players" . Baltimore had no where the amount of injuries the yankees faced,it really is irrelevant how much that player is being paid. and i could take your argument both ways, the sox had plenty "25 million dollar players" go down and look at them..it literally crippled their organization.

      also record after all star break irrelevant as well,seriously. if they finish 2nd in the AL to texas does it really matter? it only matters how they play when it counts,plenty of years yanks went roaring into the post season and were out before you or i could even get our first argument in.

      time will decide this one

      This is why I think you had them as the favorite.

      " anything less than another trip to the WS and I would be shocked and disappointed"

      So about 1 page ago you would have been shocked if they werent in the WS. Now you just think they have as good a shot as anyone. You're trending to the dark side here

      We are splitting hairs. I dont think the Yankees are an awfull team. I just think they other teams are playing much better.

      I think the Yankees would be slight underdogs to Texas.....slight

      I think the Yankees would be slight underdogs to the A's.....slight [A's swept them in 4. Really looking foward to their next series]

      I give a slight edge to the Yankees against the O's. Not because the Yankees are a better team but I see that series going 5 or 7 whatever the case may be and I'm not sure the O's are tough enough to win on the road.

      The biggest reason I dont like the Yankees chances is CC.

      He will get the first start because thats how Joe is.

      He has 1 quality start in like his last 5 games.

      If he finds his groove that gives the Yankees a shot.

      As a pinch runner/ defensive replacment.

      He probably wont start swinging a bat until next year. So he probably wont be on playoff roster.

      Andy 5 shut out innings today

      Wish they could put up a few more runs against a guy with a 5era so Robertson/Soriano didnt have to come into yet another game. But hopefully they hold on and then win tonight

      I thought I heard this morning that the Os have 18 extra innings wins?! Holy crap. That will give them a big advantage in the playoffs.

      Takin my little guy to his first game tonight Cross your fingers that his attention span lasts more than a few innings. Haha

      Great game to be at. Dont know if Ive ever had more fun at a Yankee game. Lil guy was actually into it. I'll post up some pics when I load.

      Go Yanks. I hope they keep this momentum

      This is nothing new bro..if its not the Red Sox it's Tampa if not Tampa Baltimore,always going to be someone . Last few weeks have definitely felt like the playoffs but it still don't matter unless they win in October,they are getting in g60

      Cute kid

      It would be nice that if a pitcher goes 8 innings 1 run and 11k's this offense could get him a decision

      2 more games against teams with winning records.

      Then the Twins for 3 (62-88)

      Toronto (66-83)

      Red Sox (68-84)

      Baltimore has 5 against the Sox, 4 against Toronto and, 3 against Tampa who might be out of it by then.

      Lets do it

      Never said I didn't want them to win or that I wouldn't cheer them on. Just don't think they will win (the ws) . After all of these close games that should have been blow outs Giardi says Soriano might have a dead arm.
