What a difference a month makes...

Total, complete collapse in all aspects and facets.

It's going to be a very long off season.

Following that high mark, they had the terrible week against Baltimore and then the Labor Day weekend sweep against Detroit to fall back into a tie.

What makes the collapse even more dramatic is that after treading water for next week after that, they went on a little run to get back to 15 games over as late as September 18. And now they've won two games since then. Unreal.

The same here .. i could never cheer for the yankees, unless it was to help the White Sox in some way .. every single nationally televised game here, has the yankees .. it's ludicrous, since i live in a NL team area .. now that the White Sox are out of it, i'm interested in the Orioles and the Nationals .. i've liked the Orioles going back to the 70's when i lived in Ocean City and the Nationals are just a great story ..

Neither am I, but that can't overcome my intense dislike of the Evil Empire.

The yankee hatred never ends for those of us who lived in the mid to late 1950's.

Yes they can - you get a RBI for a productive out.
Moving runners from first to second, or 2nd to 3rd, in most cases, are unproductive. Yes, it's better than making an out and NOT doing that, but it's not a positive outcome.

You can say that again. They ruined many afternoons and evenings in my childhood.
