    I guess the Yankees got their hash tags mixed up.

    It should have been #everygamematters

    But, they played it like #2012ALCSrevisited

      96% sure at this point that the Yankees do not make the post-season this year.

      The Yankees should rebound with Hughes tomorrow…

      May I interrupt this thread long enough to say that I still don’t think they’re going to make the post-season?

      Sorry.

      Carry on.

      LOL.

      Seriously, if they have any hope, or, rather, want to have any hope, they have to win their next four games in a row, IMHO.

      And, that’s not going to happen.

      @ Evan3457:
      But look at at the 2006 Cardinals: they got hot in a 19-game post-season and won a title.

      If anything can happen in baseball, or baseball can’t be predicted, why count out a rotation that has Phil Hughes and 11 games still to play?

      Well, I suppose if Jeff Weaver and Jeff Suppan can be key starters in a title run, then so can Phil Hughes.

      Weaver, or the pitcher Cashman referred to as “one of the premier young arms in the game” in 2002? He certainly was a key starter in Florida’s title run in 2003.

      “… The A’s got better, because they have Lilly in their rotation now, with Mulder and Zito. ‘We felt we needed to do this to get to where we want to be. This is a sure sign that we’re dead serious,’ Cashman said.”

      Dead serious but not winning again until Mr. Steinbrenner approved $243 million for the starting rotation in 2009…

      He was also a key starter in helping the Cards win a title in 2006. You’re supposed to know that.
