    Against the Rays Yankees are auditioning pitchers who might not even factor in the first round. So two runs down in the first inning with the Rays ace pitcher on the mound. Despite getting probably their best overall performances by all of our starting pitchers Yankees 7-7 in their last 14 games.

    Yeah, it reminds me, meaning there are similarities (not that the situation is identical). The fan base is panicking over a rough finish even though it's new season starting October 3rd.

    Yeah. But less panic back in 2000. That team was a proven winner. Current team is not. I am referring to the Post Season.

    Astros only need to win one of their last 4 games to clinch HFA. Need the Dodgers to lose today. That would give them the same record as the Yankees with 3 games to go. A tie of course, HFA goes to the Yankees.

    So the Astros only need to win 12 more games to be world champs........thats 4 for Verlander, 4 for Cole, and 4 for Greinke..........sounds doable........and they will probably set a ML record for postseason strikeouts by a pitching staff..........

    Well technically they only need to win 11, but they need to win the right 11 just like everyone else.

    Technically you are correct........it's just that the Astros' everyone else is better than everyone else's everyone else........all this makes you realize just how good the Red Sox were last year, to beat the Astros.

    Astros are favorites for a reason this year. But I donít think you understand small sample variance.

    I figure the Giants can win one game from the Dodgers this weekend. So Yankees will need to sweep the Rangers to get HFA against the Dodgers if both teams make it to the WS.

    Eleven is eleven in the post-season. How one win is more right than another is beyond me.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Actually the WC teams need to win 12. But that does not apply to the Astros or the Yankees.

    He said the Astros only needed to win 12 more games when they had 5 regular season games remaining. I was merely correcting him that it was 11 and not 12 and the 11 needed to be in the post season as the remaining regular season games didn't really matter. If they went 5-0 in those games they will still need to win 11 more for WS title.

    Dodgers won last night ending any chance of the Yankees getting HFA against them. By the way a little over a week ago I said the Yankees better win a few games because the Twins could run the table to finish the season. Good thing the Yankees managed to eck out a few since the Twins have lost exactly 1 game the last week and a half.

    Who knows, we might end up calling Tarpley "St. Stephen."
