That's kind of like wishing your friend good luck, after you marry his GF. :pop:

Well, yeah. :lol:
I'd much rather see them contend than the Red Sox though.

I thought when the Nats removed Clippard as the closer that it was too late in the season to be making a move like that. Although I see Clippard gave up a run in the 8th.

I think Dejan is 100% right here:

There were nine teams in Major League Baseball with payrolls of $100 million-plus. Four of those -- Yankees, Tigers, Cardinals, Giants -- are the ones left in the League Championship Series.

And from the national (New York/Boston) baseball media, you will neither read nor hear a peep about this.

It's completely acceptable to them. It's the norm. It's the natural order of things, that the Yankees and Red Sox and others start out with an incredible financial advantage. It means their owners care. It means their fans care. It means they're doing their best, unlike those freeloading bottom-feeders awaiting welfare checks.


Not even from a Pirates perspective, but the lack of a salary cap in baseball just sucks.

Just from my eyeball I thought Cano was safe easily at first there.

If there's ever going to be a change (and I don't think there will be) the small and mid market teams need to push it. They won't. They also wouldn't want a floor, which would come with a cap.

I thought he was out before I saw the replay. The umps almost always get that one right.

Yeah, it cost them a run for sure. They have had plenty of other chances they should have capitalized on though.

I sure am not cheering this or any other injury, but I hate the Yankees so much this does not make me sad.
