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.

    • 1) I get it and most people jump into these discussions without reading the prior pages.   2) How would you know if I valued your opinion? Since you rarely post anything In the forum yet you regularly  use the rep button. I guess if that is your thing it is what it is.  But it really bugs me when I’m bombarded with downvotes from a guy (or two) that doesn’t contribute to the conversation. And one downvote really isn’t a big deal but when it’s a bunch of times it gets annoying. As far as “treating someone like a piece of crap”, my response is usually tied to a previous post. Example, being asked the same question that was answered by me a few pages ago, being told that I need to win a conversation or else, and other provoking replies. 3) I really have no interest in going searching for Ron White and I’m guessing it will just provoke another unpopular response. I was probably out of line calling you a troll. But, I get tired of getting downvotes from you and one other guy. And not even contributing to the conversation. You know kinda playing god by sitting in judgement with the rep button. I’d be willing to bet you’ve handed me nearly as many downvotes as I’ve given out total in my lengthy time here. I guess if that’s your thing it is what it is. But, as a regular poster I’d ask that you please post more and remove your finger from the trigger  Thanks 😉  
    • I agree, I’m okay with the service game. I’m not really sure about what can/would be considered use abuse. It would obviously advantageous to have a handful of these guys all ready at one time.
    • REALLY???? You bumped the Nelson f-ing Cruz thread????
    • I'm getting disillusioned by this board. Beating dead horse after dead horse after dead horse. I need a f-ing break. See y'all maybe when an actual Game Thread is active.   Probably post a song every now and again, because... MUSIC! IMPORTANT stuff.
    • I don't understand what that has to do with what Bonds did between the lines. Who cares that he wasn't liked by the media.
    • Seems like the guys sitting out have all mad tons of money already.  But anyone can sit out this year or any other year if they want to.  Not a big deal to me,
    • Yes, this was actually true. With Buford, Blair, Frank, and Rettenmund in a World Series-tested outfield and Johnson at second since 1966, there was just no room. Moreover, they already had a stable of great starting pitching and thus no reason to trade a star position player for more. I believe Crowley, who had also racked up great stats at Rochester, made the team over Baylor because he was more than two years older, a lefty swinger on a predominantly right-handed hitting team, and could play both the outfield and first base.
