Those Mariner throwbacks are a harsh reminder of how much they sucked for nearly their first 20 seasons.

We took 3 of 4 from the first place Cubs. Granted, we have a 4 game series with the last place Braves coming up. We are so bad against the Braves, it will work itself out.

We took two of three from the first place Cubs and fell off a fucking cliff.

Cubs are in a pretty bad rut right now, can't be explained away just by injuries.

We lost 5 of 7 to the pitiful Braves and somehow gained 2 games in the standings.

Something has to give tonight I suppose.

Market correction.

They couldn't keep that pace up forever. They'll be just fine.

You got us at the right time. This team absolutely sucks right now, especially with anyone on base. We've got to be like 0-17 with RISP and two outs over the past week.

For instance, bases loaded with Thor struggling in the 2nd. The result? Nada.

I keep pulling the MLB threads up to see what's being discussed, but I never have anything to to add.

I used to be a huge baseball fan. When I was a little kid in 1985 I would practice Ricky Henderson's snatch catch when I was barely big enough to hold a glove. I would emulate every move Dave Winfield would make from the time he stepped in the box through his swing in t-ball. I'd practice the pitching motion of Yankees enemy Doc Gooden for hours on end at the park. I listened to or watched almost every Yankees game from 85'- 2011. I'd even put on the Mets when the Yanks were off. I had a handle on the stats of almost every player on any team for quite a while there.

My interest in baseball dropped almost completely as the Core Four retired. I barely know the starting lineup anymore. I don't know if I got spoiled or the game has changed but I just can't get into it anymore.

...and the moment I criticize the Nats they mount a five run inning and turn around the RISP drought. That Rendon hit was fucking beautiful.

Obviously this is an off day for Thor, but that was an awful inning from d'Arnaud. Wild pitches and people stealing on him with ease.

You were saying?

Meta have to do something about d'Arnaud. It's like Piazza all over again, just without, ya know, Mike Piazza hitting.

d'Arnaud is a good hitter, but you better be a god damned MVP candidate to have his arm as a catcher.

And by the way, the stolen J-E-T-S chant is the worst thing I have ever heard. For shame.

I'm not worried about the Cubs, but I'm definitely ready for the All-Star Break.

Today was fun, though.

I think you got spoiled. The Core Four were around for a LONG time. They did a lot of winning. All good things must come to an end with a new beginning in the works. The current Yankees are a team in transition. They're flushing out the long contracts and also promoting young talent. They're also still trying to put asses in seats. Expensive seats. The Yankees have painted themselves into a corner with their overpriced stadium, so they've got to hope to put some marquee names out there. Love him or hate him, Yankee fans wanna see AR hit. He's an attraction. Plus, Carlos Beltran has been healthy and productive.

The Yankees had their run from 1996 to 2000. They won because of good young players and solid veterans. After the 2001 WS loss, they signed Giambi for 7 years, 120 million.This would mark the beginning of signing free agents who didn't quite pan out. Luckily, they still had the Core Four to at least remain respectable. Now the Yankees have had to start all over again. Maybe you can too.

This week started with the Mets 3 games back and in great position to keep this interesting heading into the break, and might end the week 7+ games back with two starting pitchers possibly needing surgery.

Wonderful.
