The Bestest: Wave Of Anal Fury: I'm sure Cleveland fans will give CC a warm reception.

Stars that left the Yankees for other teams almost always get a warm reception upon visiting the Bronx but those that left other teams to join the Yankees almost always get booed mercilessly when visiting their former towns.

..but its Yankees fans that are the dicks


*eyeroll*

as was said, people leave a lot of teams because they get too good to afford and look like they care about the paycheck rather than the team

people leave the yankees because they have been used for all they are worth after being swiped from other teams.  they are well received because the fans saw their best years and they are on the decline or they were moved on to make way for someone better.  the ratio of people who left the yankees at their prime to those who are past it is probably very low

most teams go through years of rebuild, most of the time more rebuild years than good ones in the long run, whereas the yankees can just open the checkbook to keep the good times rolling.  as evidenced by lots of talk of who they should buy next - machado...harper...

must take so much sacrifice to be a yankee fan after so many years not making the playoffs

I'm assuming it's the circumstances.  The Yankees are the "greener pastures" that a lot of players pursue, whereas not too many players worthy of a big paycheck leave the Yankees to get it (Robinson Cano would be an obvious exception to that, although I don't know what kind of money the Yankees were offering at the time).  That tends to leave a bitter taste in the mouth of the fans.  There are a lot of teams who can say that the Yankees treated them like their farm system because of their (mostly) unique ability to throw around a lot of money for years at a stretch.

CC doesn't deserve the vitriol, of course, because he was traded to the Brewers before signing with NY.

foo monkey: Any games on network tv or basic cable?


Today's Yankees-Indians game will be the last one on MLBN.
All NL games through the NLCS are on TBS.
All remaining ALDS games are on FS1.
The ALCS will be split between FS1 and Fox.
The World Series will be on Fox.

MichiganFTL: Yeah that's it, the Red Sox are giving up runs because their pitchers are coming in in the wrong innings.


the ones between and including 1 through 9?  well, 8 since they haven't had to pitch in the bottom of the 9th

So we're five games in and only two starters have managed to go 6+ innings (Bauer and Verlander).  Keuchel almost went six but he had to deal with the hilariously bad Angel Hernandez.

Ian Kinsler was not wrong.

Anyone got any recommendations for following play-by-play online, in text form, that isn't a total clusterfark of overlays and banners?   This shiat above is ridiculous.

Cano was a situation where the Yankees knew they were facing a rebuild, was still saddled with all of the '09 contracts and Cano's market rate was just too much for the plan. Then the Mariners decided to try to "make a splash" by overpaying.
