WILD CARD WIN, BABY. That is how we fucking do it! WOOOO. I've had a full day to gather my thoughts after Wednesday's victory... But, trust me, I was riding high after that victory. I was so prepared to finally bodycheck that stupid DJ. But this would have been a happy bodychecking. If we lost, I still could have bodychecked that very same DJ... HOWEVER (yes, Stephen A. voice), that check would have been filled with anger, frustration, and rage. But I digress... I'm going to be honest with all you guys. Leading up to that game was easily one...

The Wild Card roster is starting to take shape! The Yankees announced that Luis Severino will be taking the ball on Wednesday night in the Bronx, hoping to redeem himself for the abysmal second half of this season, as well as last year’s Wild Card Game against the Minnesota Twins. I think this is ultimately the right move when you consider how Boone, Cashman, and Co. are planning to attack this game. It isn’t like a normal start. If it were, my first choice would probably still be Masahiro Tanaka and I would have been very okay with JA Happ...

There are still roughly five weeks left in the regular season. While the Yankees are playing (mostly) well of late and Boston is experiencing their first sign of relative struggles, the overwhelmingly most likely scenario is that the Yanks will have to play that one-game Wild Card matchup. That sucks, but at least that game will almost certainly be in the Bronx. Let’s try to envision who Boone, Cashman, and/or the nerds upstairs decide will be most suitable to start that game. Luis Severino Sevy is the ace. He is having a great year and was probably the front-runner for...

If you listen to the podcast, you probably heard Jake say a few episodes back that we should start considering who might be on that Wild Card roster. I’ve decided to take the liberty of actually doing it. For the purposes of this exercise, I’ll assume all the guys who are currently on the DL and haven’t been ruled out for the year will be back and healthy by then. I’ll revisit this in a month or so when we have a better idea of who is healthy, but for now, let’s just assume everyone that’s on the 10-day DL...
