How are you rooting Yankees-Blue Jays?

Recommended Posts

10 of their last 20 head-to-head, including 10 of Toronto's next 17 as their 58/59/60 are against us.

This flight of whimsy in case Wojo/Means/Lopez/Akin/Kremer give 20 mostly credible starts.

I think I want to say the 8th seed optimizing wish is that if the Yankees can beat us 19 straight times, why can't they beat the Blue Jays 10 straight times?

Then we have a game on the Tigers for the 3-week sprint.  Red Sox (and Blue Jays if Yankees really stomp) in week 3 could be walking dead.

Sketching that scenario it is just now hitting me that if Yankees go 7-3 or 8-2 against Toronto, while our playoff odds may be 8% on ESPN now, the odds of us being within 3 games of Toronto entering the final weekend may stick in the 25-50% range.   I guess that makes Means Ballard, Akin and Kremer Harnisch and Milacki, etc.   Definitely Wojo is Dave Johnson.

10 good days - we get all the fun stuff from Bowie for the last 10, right?

If one gets in I hope it's the Yankees.

The Yankees sneak into the playoffs and it's still a failure of a season, the Jays get in and it's a cause for celebration.

I'm rooting for the Orioles to pass both of them.

If they fail to do so, then I'll root against the Yankees (and for the White Sox) when the post-season starts.

FYI there are no tiebreakers this season. If the Orioles finish tied with Toronto for the last spot, they will get it because they won the season series.

If the Yanks can get healthy, they will be incredibly dangerous down the stretch and probably into the playoffs.  So probably root for the Jays over the Yanks to prevent that.

Hmmm....didn't know that, thanks.

We are 3-3 vs the Yankees.  What if we go 5-5 against them and tie for the #8 spot?  Who gets it?

Overall run differential, strength of schedule, total runs in common games, intra-divisional record, intra-league record, RPI rankings, Saragin's ratings, a poll of sportswriters from the Associated Press, the opinion of the other 28 Major League managers, and then a coin flip.

As much as I don't like the Jays, I can't root for the Yankees. They happen to get into the playoffs and get healthy, they could go far. Having them beat up on each other would be good, but of course we need to win.

The Jays are my favorite enemies. It’s easy to root for them over the Yankees.

Plus, they have Caleb Joseph!

Anytime the Yankees lose it’s cause for celebration. I don’t like the Blue Jays but they’re a nobody compared to how much I like to see the Yankees (or any other behemoth payroll competition sucker) lose.

Jonathan Villar is my favorite enemy!  @Roll Tide  Freakin' Grichuk went 0-18 recently before the announcer told us and he hit one off the wall in BOS.

Then it would be based on record vs. the division, I believe. The Yankees are currently 12-11 against the East (with a perfect 7-0 against Boston!) and the Orioles are 11-14.

So likely to make the playoffs we will probably have to get 3rd place outright and not tie for it. Sales it significantly tougher.

Thanks for the info.

Rooting for the Yankees to crater.  I'd love to see us finish ahead of them in the standings.  I've got a buddy who's a Yankees fan and a big $%*^ talker, if the Orioles finish ahead of them in the standings I'm getting a giant yard sign of the final standings and posting it in his yard.
