    Yankees have won 7 of their last 10 games.

    It's a start but the quality of competition has been poor.

    But this goes against the idea of the team being garbage that you would get from reading this thread.

    Basically this thread's opinion of the Yankees needs to be taken with a huge grain of salt, isn't correct just because it's negative/cynical.

    Can 2 teams challenge the same play?

    You're reading way too much into the silence here after some nice games against weaker competition...

    It's not just that, I've been reading this thread since last season. The narrative that Brian Cashman is one of the worst GMs in baseball and has a lifetime contract, etc. has been said several times in here. It just annoys me because it's a distortion of reality.

    Kluber is absolutely dealing

    The Tigers' lineup is putrid. It's a start for Kluber though. One guy is hitting a respectable .280. The rest are around .200 or worse.

    Filthy from Kluber, he’s looking much better last few starts. 9-4 if they close this out vs Braves, Indians, Orioles and Tigers, good job getting the job done.

    What exactly is so great about Cashman? The team hasn't made the World Series in over a decade despite having one of the highest payrolls in baseball. The drafting has been poor. His starting pitching acquisitions have been poor. The hitting philosophy of the organization has failed miserably in the postseason.

    This team's coaching could be better. The Yankees should think seriously about not bringing him back after 2022 if the team doesn't do anything before then. But the current roster and core that has been around since 2017 is not bad and could easily win a World Series. The hate people have for him is very exaggerated.

    Cashman hired the coach, who had no coaching experience at any level. Stupid decision.

    I would rather have Lowrie than Lindor right now. Change my mind Lindor.

    As good as Mets pitching has been: Petersen really needs to be taken out of the rotation.

    We've seen the flaws of Boone, and the Yankees should probably let him go after this season if they don't at least make the ALCS, but he's had two 100 win seasons. Something doesn't add up here.

    Man Lindor is just fighting it right now. He's getting himself into good counts and getting his pitch, but he just can't barrel up to save his life.

    Well typical Mets, that was some horrific managing. No reason for May to come out.

    The only way for this to end is for Harper to put one out. :laugh:

    Also f*** Rhesus being all angry and shit in the dugout, the replay is what it is, the ball didn't go out. No reason to get his panties in a bunch.

    That Met Phillie game was one of the most bizarro world baseball games I think I've ever seen....just wacko!.

    If I'm Rojas, I never would have brought in Diaz in a non save situation. He blows chunks in those types. He should have kept May in who was dealing.

    Anyways, we won and so enough of the Phillies already. Seems like we've played them a zillion times already...lol

    That Mets - Phillies game was ridiculous, huge win for the Mets, but Diaz is still terrible. Alonso, Mcneil and Conforto all starting to hit.
