Game Thread: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays 9/23

Here we go ladies and gentleman as the New York Yankees begin an absolutely huge series with the Toronto Blue Jays this week and into the weekend inside Rogers Centre. This series will absolutely make or break the Yankees this season as it’s getting pretty damn late this season. These four games, the four final road games of the regular season for New York, will decide it all so luckily for the team the Baby Bombers seem up to the task and unfazed by the bright lights and the pennant chase. In the start tonight the Yankees will send Bryan Mitchell to the mound with the weight of the team on his right shoulder and pitching arm while the Blue Jays will counter with Francisco Liriano. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Rogers Centre and can be seen locally on the YES Network, on ESPN 2 nationally and also on MLB TV wherever you are.

Here we go, the biggest four games of the season. Last season it was a four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays that essentially ended the Yankees chance of winning the AL East Division race and led the team on a tailspin that ended with the Yankees losing at home in the AL Wild Card game. Let’s see if we can return the favor tonight in Toronto with a big series victory or sweep.

Root along with us on social media by either liking our page on Facebook or by giving @GreedyStripes a follow on Twitter. It’s time to play the spoiler and it’s time to bring 1995 back. Go Yankees!

  1. CONTENDER TO CORPSE....and back again....and now really a corpse.

    Eh! So it goes.....This was never a juggernaut back in April, and
    anyone with a trained eye could see it.

    Yes, a better representation than last year. When they left 2900
    men on base.

    This time offense that no one feared. Albeit, they had
    their moments. But in the end, not a contender.
    Offense can really be ramped-up this off season, will be fun
    to watch, as it happens.

    The pitching, where is a David Cone, or a Jimmy Key ?...Why go on naming
    building blocks. That is this teams no man's land. That is the
    ultimate / mandatory off season challenge. Build a real staff.

    Two shut outs in a row, and only three hits tonight. A corpse can
    only do so much.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
