    Holy crap you people are pathetic.
    I can't even imagine how whiny you would be if this wasn't the best team in baseball.

    With the trouble of the last couple of innings, surprised that Porcello started this inning.

    NY is about to be 14-5 since the four game sweep in Boston.

    my concern is they keep looking ugly next week against the Marlins and White Sox, teams they should stomp.

    The Yanks could get back within striking distance, I'd rather have no drama and stomping those teams would avoid that.

    Mookie & AB are doing nothing at the top. JD can't do it all on his own.

    They are about to be 14-5 against mostly tanking garbage. We knew this stretch was coming and the Yankees starting pitching is still crap.

    Did we expect they wouldn’t be? It’s an incredibly fat piece of schedule. We are still 11-6 since then.

    He wasn't with the team when nicknames were decided.

    It will likely lead to the doom of the team.

    They’ve given up approximately 8 million hits on 0-2 counts lately.

    That’s irrelevant. The point is their schedule will remain soft while the Red Sox struggle against a tougher schedule. That’s the reason for concern.

    Also NYY have a 9 game Western swing with 6 against the A’s and Mariners. And a 4 gamer at the Trop in late September.

    We all knew they had a favorable schedule. Now we are seeing it playing out, and it's uncomfortable.

    Monday 9/3 - that's when the steady dose of cupcakes ends for NY. Just keep them around 5-6 gb away until then and they're done.

    If there is one thing we've learned about the Sox this year is they pack it in when they are down 2 runs with 3 innings left.
    I agree with everyone who said this game is over, they are done.

    This game has been so frustrating, with all the little things that barely differentiate slumping teams from hot teams.

    None of this matters anyway. The only thing that matters today is that UMASS football is back, and it's back BIG!!!!!!

    In the old days, your odds of winding up with goatse.cx as your next avatar, were the Sox to come back, would be very high.
