"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



Michael Pineda was impressive in his return and Dellin Betances was dynamite until he gave up a game-tying solo home run, but when Adam Jones hit a back-breaking 3-run home run off Shawn Kelly, all you could do is sit there and take it. The Yankees have been kicking the crap out of the Orioles–or at least getting the better of them–for 20 years. This season, the Orioles are enjoying some sweet revenge.

They’re due.

Final Score: Orioles 5, Yanks 3.

Yes, there are games still to be played, but to me that 3 run jack was the end of the Yankees post season chances.

Not a good time to be a Yankees fan in this area. The O's fans are smugly rubbing it in. A textbook case of schadenfreude.

2) They've earned the right I think. 1) Agreed.

I turned off the TV and went to bed as Kay completed the Jones HR call. I used to stay up for the whole game, regardless of score.

Seeing Pineda perfect through 4 made me wonder what the Yanks record would have looked like had he and Tanaka or Nova or CC stayed healthy for the whole year. BUt, "If my aunt had a d..k she would be my uncle." Woulda shoulda coulda. Losing so many starters and still keeping it close for most of the year was quite a feat, and I had been holding out hope to Jeter in 1 more postseason before he hung up his jersey, those prospects are looking more bleak.

Betances gutted out 33 pitches, and the last sealed the Yanks fate.

I wonder if the Yanks drop a few more and maybe they tell Tanaka to shut it down and get under the knife? I question the thinking that he gives them a few more wins this year, at the cost of the 2015 and part of 2016 season, if he needs TJ surgery.
