• Yankees In 2017 Post-Season!

    Posted by on September 23rd, 2017 · Comments (8)

    Hey, that’s some rebuilding year!

    Seriously, the Yankees were much better this season than I ever expected. It’s been fun.

    Know what? I like their chances in the post-season. For sure, they can beat the Twins. And, once you get into the real playoffs, then they have a shot. Of course, they need all the big guys to show up and play well. You can’t have the studs pulling an A-Rod.

      I think they’ll win the Wild Card game, but I doubt they’ll win more than one game against either the Indians or the Astros in the ALDS.

      We have been blessed with a great season. The young guys have performed and set all kinds of records. The icing on the cake is the playoffs. Cleveland has started to cool down a bit after their month of dominance. Our hitters are getting hot. Judge is on fire again. We dominated the Twins just last week. Lets see what we can do.

      Great season, especially since the big “K-Kid” did pretty well for himself…. 😉

      Sure has been cool this year. Just win the damn wild card game please!

      Once that’s done, same thing applies to all the (very good) teams in the mix. Studs need to show up and play well. The Giants have won plenty of post season series being the underdogs. Yanks can too.

      Assuming that the Yankees get past the Twins, both the Astros and the Indians have been playing toooo well, and might just go into a funk. We have a real chance for the WS.

      Yanks have been hot themselves for the last 3 1/2 weeks, winning 18 of 24. They might cool off, too.

      Or maybe the top two are just better.

      @ Evan3457:
      Maybe, but their stats match-up with any teams’. Interestingly, batting average against the Yankees is the lowest in the American League. Above average outfield D, infield is a bit short at second and “possibly” catcher. I have to wonder if catching such an electric staff wouldn’t make any catcher both tired AND bad. And the offense is well-balanced and deep.A LOT will be on Sanchez’s shoulders, Judge will be walked and walked. Should be a FUN postseason! 🙂

      PS, I still am fuming about Giardia’s [sic] mismanagement of the team/game on Thursday. Had they won that game….. if nothing else the panic in Boston would have been a beautiful thing….

      That wasn’t a do or die game. The Wild Card game was. Hence the difference in the tactical decisions.

      Had Girardi burned out his best relievers during the last week of the regular season, and had the Sox still won the division anyway, then last night’s bullpen heroics could not have happened.

      People forget the baseball regular season is unlike any other sport. There’s almost always another game the next day.
