Down to their final 15 games, the Yankees have to win, regardless of who they’re playing.  After a mortifying loss to the Orioles last night, the team sits a half-game out of the last wildcard spot.  This upcoming series with Cleveland is the second-to-last of the Yankees’ “soft” series before they finish their season with back-to-back-to-back series against their divisional and playoff rivals, so they need to make the most of it.

Going into the stretch run of the season Randy, Derek and Jaime come back to the pod to do some individual evaluations on The Yankees. The trio starts by assessing the Gleyber dilemma, both for the rest of this season and a possible postseason and for the future after that. Then, they talk about another player whose season hasn’t been optimal in Chad Green, and what could his bad performance be due to. Finally, they get into a spirited discussion about the Yankees Manager Aaron Boone, giving their outlooks on him this season and whether they’ll think he’ll be back with another contract.

Game 147: Embarrassing

With 15 games to play and the scramble for the AL Wild Card spots becoming no less intense, every game is a must-win for the Yankees – especially games like today’s, against a team like the Orioles, with a pitcher like Jordan Montgomery on the mound. Alas, despite an excellent outing from Montgomery and holding a lead with 8 ⅔ innings in the books, the Yankees found a way to blow it in Baltimore and dropped this game 3-2 in 10. To the takeaways –

Game 146: God Bless the Orioles (x 2)

As I said yesterday, may every game be against the Orioles. The Yankees beat the Orioles 4-3 yesterday, and while the game was much closer than it needed to be, a win is a win – and the Yankees need every one of those that they can get right now. There is a three-way virtual tie in the Wild Card race between Boston, Toronto, and New York, so we are in absolutely no position to complain about a win.

With that said, let’s get right to the takeaways, shall we?

Game 145: God Bless the Orioles

God bless the Baltimore Orioles, am I right? I know the Yankees dropped 2 of 3 to them a few weeks ago, but they are so bad. They’re exactly what a scuffling team needs after a first dose of Minnesota Twins. The Yanks pounded the Orioles 7-2 last night after jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the first 3 innings. May every game go like that from now until Halloween.

Let’s get right to the (delayed) takeaways.
