    Looks like good Tanaka showed up for the Yankees today. 1 hit allowed with 10 Ks through 5 innings. Bad guys up 3-0 in the bottom of the 5th.
    The Yankees could go 0-162 and it wouldn't be enough

    I would like to be clinched by those lovely flotation devices in your new avatar.

    We need a new category in the annual Talksox awards.

    Slasher wins hands down. And I do mean hands down.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Fascinating. Save as last night but that one change--JBJ needs a day off to think things over. To hit or not to hit, that is the question.

    Of the bottom 4--ERod, Pom, Porcello, and Fister--the guy whose technique I like the most is Fister. He does not have great stuff, but he does have a variety and, when he is on, he uses it well. ERod and Porcello have better stuff, but normally can't keep the ball low and tend to over rely on their fast ball. Pom has a better curve than anyone, but also can't put it in the right places--ditto his 94-95 mph fast ball.

    As was the case last night, I see this game as similar to the postseason--must win. If Fister pitches well tonight, he could well become our 4th postseason starter.

    Yankees win, so no help there, which is fine with me because this is probably the same team we play in the ALDS if we get there. None of our last 4 starters--ERod, Sale, Porcello, Pom--pitched well. Tonight Fister gets a shot and tomorrow night Pom.

    Time for the rotation to man up. Right now they all look like they are clueless. I do not for one second think any of them has a reason to be tired.

    Unlike the overwhelming majority of other MLB pitchers this year, ours seem to eschew the notion of keeping the ball low in the zone. it's fine to bring in a high hard one now and then, but not pitch after pitch after pitch.

    I like Fister because he does understand that--but knowing and doing ain't the same thing. The doing requires excellent control.

    I like this lineup--it's basically the guys who bore the burden of this season except for Rajai and Devers. Only 3 lefty bats against righty Morton, but, except for Rajai and Nunez, these are our best hitters.

    The first four are I believe the best first four (except Nunez) we have had all season even though Betts is now 4th and Bogie 1st. Moreland at 5 and HanRam at 6 are still both capable of doing some damage. Ditto Vazquez and Devers and maybe even Rajai Davis.

    My real point is that, if these guys are going to make it or not make it, they are they the best we've got right now. I'm even happy that Fister is out there and will be incorrigible if he does well--but also apologetic if he does not.

    If OP isn't the biggest jinx in Talksox game thread history, I don't know what is.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win
