  1. The 2017-2018 New York Rangers Thread

    So the ship has been stabilized to some degree. .500 as of the result last night against Columbus. I remember the super-fast start last year so I don't hold a lot of faith in early season results being as good indicator of post-season success. On the other hand it would be nice if we did not feel the need to spot the other team a couple of goals head start in the games. PP is looking good early.

    Yeah... Good job Houston. That was a great series to cap off an unbelievable post season. It will be interesting to see where the Yankees go from here. I do hope for Carl's sake that he discovers a Rex Sox fan site where presumably he can sit around the campfire with like-minded folks comparing the smallness of their equipment.
  3. Yankees - 2018 and beyond

    1. Keep the pipeline of kids flowing which means that space has to be made at the big club. Hard choices 2. Starting pitching. We need more. Ours over performed to some degree but then failed at the end. 3. We need to get some guys who can hit or learn to hit a curve ball/slider. That was embarrassing at the end.
  4. I thought you were not dipping back into all things college QB.

    omg! It feels so weird to be the front runners for once.

    It looks like Giradi's lobbying of the umps for a better strike zone for Judge has made a difference. There were a bunch of balls called in the game last night which have been strikes throughout the rest of the playoffs. We will know for sure tonight if we see the same thing on Keuchel. He has been living down there with low strikes on Judge and some others.

    Get Headley better cleats. You know, on the off chance he gets to run the bases again. I love it that we are back at all square but man the Yankees base running has just been horrible during this series.

    Has anyone ever beaten 3 different 100 win teams on the way to a world series? It would have to be the modern era of course but I would think such a thing has never been done.

    I agree that with our current crop of kids I cannot see us giving Bryce Harper the $500M contract that many were speculating he could get from the Yankees.

    When did Kahnle get higher on the pecking order than Green BTW?

    Great movie!!! More so than many might think because, having wasted quite a few years in pool rooms myself, spending them with 9-ball and Chicago grinders and low lives, I can attest to the authenticity of some of the characters in the movie. Walken is always lights out even in that stupid ping-pong movie he did a few years ago. In any event I just heard the the Astros might activate another bullpen arm for this series and if so, the first name that was mentioned on the MLB networks was Tyler Clippard...Please god make it so. Aaron Judge has so much power it is ridiculous. Even his pop flies and mis-hits can often leave the ballpark. I think Judge needs to shorten up on his grip and move closer to the plate. I am surprised nobody else is suggesting this. he will still be an above average power threat even with these adjustments. This particular Yankees team is very easy to root for. Great job by Cashman all around. Now he needs to go out and get us another starter this off-season. That, and figure out that bringing CC back for a year or two is probably both a smart and a popular move. I want to continue to receive the benefits of the rehab episode we went through with him.

    Indians fielding in this series has been very iffy
