Tie game!!!!

Are the Yankees just smoke and mirrors? At this point they obviously are for real, but you look at them and wonder.

Yankees starting pitching is going to doom them in the playoffs. Tanaka has a 9.78 era post all star break and that is before tonight's game. They don't have a legit number one or even number two starter.

It sounds crazy to say this but based on how mediocre their starters have been and their injuries they have overachieved. 

I mean their talent matches their record but not how they have gotten there.

This was just a bad spot for them.   You sweep four from the Red Sox at home, then have to go on the road vs a last place team.... that is the definition of ripe for a letdown.   Not to mention playing a night game adn then travelling and probably not getting into their hotels until 3 or 4 AM.   And Tanaka has had poor road numbers all year.

They're good.   But we got them at just the right time.   And as we've seen all year, this Oriole team just doesn't give up very often.   They have battled back so many times, often to fell short, but except for the games where bad pitchers get blasted and put us in a hole that is just too deep, we don't go down without a fight.

Yep.... Villar sucks and has no value ....Time to nontender him! LOL

If he had trade value and Elias was actively trying to trade him why wasn't he traded?

But sure the results of three at bats changes everything.

Not like someone like Felix Pie could hit for a cycle.

I don't know if you meant the pitcher or the batter ........ but either way, good (enough) call.

I meant the batter but the first FB he threw... BOOM!

Now he needs to hit a second HR and stop at first so he can get a cycle.

More likely he gets a hit and gets thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.

Going to be hard to win 3 series with how they are set up. At some point even with all the off days in the playoffs their pen will be overworked.

I can point to several games before the deadline where he had meaningful hits! I know he had the game winning homer in one! Why are you so down on him???

Bottom 3 of their lineup are scrubs and they're killing us tonight.

I think MLB is down on him.

I'm not particularly down on him, I just don't want to pay him more than they have to and don't want him back on a multi-year deal.

If they can sign him for 1/3 or maybe 1/5 I'd be fine with it.

If Elias thought he had no value he would've been traded for nothing. Obviously that didn't happen.

    • Episode 3 of The Secret Monkey Quarantine Half Hour Show, featuring our guests this week, Daniel & Danny Chavis of The Veldt, a pioneering African-American psychedelia-soul outfit from Raleigh NC.  Our song to kick off the show was a cover of The Cowsills' "The Rain, The Park & Other Things" culled from video from 2 shows we did just prior to the stay-at-home orders and one from a driveway concert we played for our neighbors as they watched from their yards.     
    • Somewhere between Matt Wieters running downhill and Miggy Cabrera riding a mobility scooter.
    • There was a game scheduled on May 18, 1912 between the Philadelphia Athletics and the Detroit Tigers in Philadelphia. Before the game, all the Tigers' regular players announced that they were going on strike to protest the suspension of Ty Cobb for an incident three days earlier when he got into a fight with a fan. Detroit's management scraped together a team of whomever they could find and put them on the field to play the game.  The A's won the game, 24-2. In those days, newspaper box scores frequently abbreviated players' names with the liberal use of apostrophes.  One player's name appeared in the paper as L'nh's'r.  The comment was made, years later, that nobody ever knew whether the guy's name was Loopenhouser or Lagenhassinger, but they figured the guy's wife probably called him a liar when he said he'd played ball for the Detroit club that day. Well, by golly, Retrosheet has a boxscore of that game, including the player's full, unabbreviated name.  He was Bill Leinhauser.  He went 0-for-4 in the game with three strikeouts.  He played center field that day, recording no putouts, but he did pick up one assist and finished his major league playing career with a fielding percentage of 1.000. Bill was 18 years old when he played in that game.  He lived to the age of 84, dying in 1978.  No word on whether his wife ever believed his story about what he did that afternoon.
    • My point is that Iglesias is not known for his bat.  To project him as a 6 hole batter says that the guys that are 7-9 are not up to batting that high.  That would be Ruiz, Severino and whoever is the 3rd outfielder.   While Hyde may be right it doesn't sound very good.
    • A split decision. There comes a point when you have done well enough, splitting is just fine. 
    • Not that I'm not glad he's bulked back up but I'm curious what his foot speed is going to be like, since slim Davis wasn't exactly fast.
    • 😛 Actually I think he may be.
