Yeah, better hurry up and declare victory before the season actually ends and the Yankees are in the playoffs as always.

I'd like to see the Orioles win the AL East. That division has been the same 'ol, same 'ol for too many years.

OH, my!

I dunno what to say. Even if they manage to make the playoffs the pitching match ups against most of the other AL playoff teams are really, really tough for the Yankees.

Not very confident in their starting pitching

CC, Andy, Kuroda, Hughes

Can't knock them too much for this slide with ARod, Tex and GRandy on the shelf, but it still sucks

The Yanks still play the O's and Rays a bunch of times so the division is not set. Their biggest problem has been CC who's given them nothing between his DL stints. That and Nova, but Nova is on the DL too.

Jets 0-4 preseason = no problem.

Yankees 76-59 preseason = sky falling.

You guys are the best.

Not the sky is falling but you have to look at their record since the break. They are just your average run of the mill team and this is an extended mediocre tailspin that they are in. The team is too reliant on the 3 run HR as their main offensive weapon.

The offense will bounce back at some point but more troubling is the SP.

CC does not look anything like his normal Ace self. Hughes and Nova have become extra base hit machines. Kuroda pitches well but the offense does not support him. Garcia has been exposed now that the offense can't win games 7-4 for him.

Phelps is talented and has a lot of potential but is still untested.

I think for the first time the Yanks actually catch a break by being in the AL East rather than having a ton of games left against a divison like the AL West which has taken over as the best division in baseball.

At the end of the day they should be better than Tampa and Baltimore.

Kudos to Jeter who I killed for years on his outstanding season.

Terrifying how we go from being up 10 games to basically being tied with the Orioles ... :blowup:

WTF was that that I just watched !?!

Come back from 6-1 down, tie the game and then give it right back.

Since the oblique injury, Robertson just isn't the same

The O's can see the prize, and are playing over their heads right now. Not sure with the way the bats are going right now if we can stop them

Sucks

True Robertson since that injury is not the same pitcher. Orioles are certainly overachieving. Credit Showalter for some of that
