    Dang Yankees!

    ......hopefully the twins will win today and send you back to NYC w/o another broom.

    Worthless thread I know, but I had to vent a bit.....

    Re: Dang Yankees!

    I hate the Yankees more than anything but the Hawkeyes and Huskers.



    They are still underachieving in my book with their money and players they have.

    I sure would feel better with the sox having a 2.5 game cushion going into the metrodome starting tomorrow.... I guess I'll see if that happens or not

    Re: Dang Yankees!

    Yup, we definitely had our chances last night, even with the rookie (Sworzak - sp?) starting in place of Perkins.

    I just hope Liriano can hold down the fort today and we won't have to play catch up again......ughh......DANG YANKEES!!!

    Rookie pitchers can occasionally be a blessing. A month or so ago the Yankees got dominated by the Nats and Marlins during a span of 8 days where they'd never seen the starting pitcher before that game. They didn't exactly light up Sworzak last night either...

    Today's game could have a loooooottttt of offense. Liriano hasn't exactly been all world this year and Aceves has been in the 'pen all year. Then again, both could show up with their A-game and it'll be a pitcher's duel. I'd however bet there's more offense than pitching.

    Aceves is on a 65 pitch count today. Hopefully the Twins can get a couple early runs and get to the bullpen even sooner than they're are planning on today.

    Re: Dang Yankees!

    I actually don't think they're underachieving against anyone other than Boston (something like 0-9 or 1-8 or something on the year). The Rays need to get outrageously hot to catch either the Yankees or Red Sox, who have been awesome this year even without the services of their front of the rotation guys (Daisuke and Wang).

    And CyDude16, let's talk underachieving. The Cubs.

    So you can feel better about your team's second highest payroll and even worse results?

    Re: Dang Yankees!

    Yankees are only under-achieving if you had them pegged for 100 wins. I think they are about where they should be right now.
