    Our nice cushion is starting to slip away.

    This team is really playing flat. It also does not help that we are hurt in a lot of ways. I thought tonight we had this one from the first inning. Then I checked back in and found that Nova crapped the bed in the second inning. Your thoughts.

    What's it to you?

    Re: Our nice cushion is starting to slip away.

    Cashman said that arods injury really had a chilling effect on the lineup, but imo, they were playing like ................ way before arod got hurt

    It's just the ebbs and flows of a regular season... There was no way they were going to finish in first place by 10 games and continue playing winning baseball at the ate they were going at... The law of averages is a bitch, but it's inevitable

    Once the injured players start coming back, I can see this team starting to pick it up again... Hopefully their lead wouldn't have disintegrated by then

    A Rod and Pettitte won't be back until September. Team better start winning again before then.

    Biggest divisional lead in MLB by two games. Hardly threadworthy.

    I guess one could also look at it like having such a nice cushion allows a team to lose 2/3 of the middle of their lineup in a week and survive a 3-9 stretch without immediate catastrophe.

    One could also take a slightly longer term view and see that the team was up by 6 games on 7/1 and by 5.5 games on 8/1

    Just means they will build it back up when they start playing better.

    Just put up 11 runs a game, and you'll keep the lead

    The Redsox had a 9 game in lead in September and blew it. The Mets had a 7 game lead with 17 games left and blew the lead. I know this team is probably better than both, but it can happen.

    You're right. It could have been thrown into general yankees comments.

    I had a nice cushion once. But then I sat on it too many times and my fat ass flattened it out.

    Re: Our nice cushion is starting to slip away.

    Thought we would at least win one against the Chi Sox. Turns out that Sales kid is the real deal. Our starting pitching has gotten really shaky of Kuroda. Let's hope we get Sabathia back at full strength and that Cano rights himself from his mini-slump.

    Not really hitting the panic button yet (96.5% chance of making the playoffs) but it'd be nice to get a few more wins and expand that division lead.

    What really is threadworthy?

    I see this on other message boards. People complain about unnecessary threads.

    There's an answer to that.

    If you don't like the topic...don't read them or don't answer them.

    Neither am I, but I'm surprised the front office has done nothing to fortify the pitching.

    Nova is imploding and I'm just not sure about Hughes or Garcia, especially if they do make the playoffs.
