    Would any sox fan want the Yankees to lose, even if it damages their teamís playoff hopes?

    If the Twins pull off the upset tonight, then theyíre going to get smashed by the Indians. Santana and Berrios are their only two good starters and Santana would be relegated to a single game. Kluber and Carrasco will already have a 2-0 lead on the Twins by the time Santana returns. If the Twins win tonight, you are effectively getting the Indians with their rotation intact. If the Yankees win, then all bets are off. Youíre still getting the Indians in terms of likelihood, but thereís a far greater chance of a Yankees upset and a far better chance that Kluber has to throw twice and likely delayed until game 3, which is always good. Also, if the Yankees win tonight and win the series with the Indians, then the sox have a far greater chance to win the AL as any Yankee-Sox series is destined for 7 and when thereís a game 7, anything can happen. I cannot stand the sox. But if the Yankees win tonight, I am rooting for them to beat Houston because I know my team will have a better shot at a World Series with Houston out of the way. I anticipate sox fans who are rational would think the same way about NYY vs CLE, but how many rational sox fans are there, right? Lol
    While you are rational here, my soul wants the yankees to fail big time tonight LOL!

    What's even better is even if they come back to win this game, their bullpen is trashed

    Big spot for Green there. We need to come out hitting. Sevy had nothing
    The rebuild is complete.

    As usual, the Twins don't administer the kill shot, and it will only be a matter of time for them to crumble. SOS.

    Holy fuck I did not expect that.

    At least Girardi did not pull a Farrell and wait too long to pull Severino.

    3-0 is not insurmountable if the Yankees pen can hold serve.

    Oh but if Santana deals and the Twins get 3 more runs it bye-bye bad guys.

    Break out the golf clubs.

    "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."
