    I won't be satisfied unless we manage to get 4 wins out of this 3 game series.

    Drink their beer, eat their food, kiss their girlfriends, just crap all over their party and sweep their ass.

    I've watched a handful of Yankee games this year. I don't like the matchup with our pitching. Specifically, the middle innings relievers. The Yankees tend to work starters hard. You look up and a starter has 71 pitches in the 3rd inning against the Yankees. I don't trust Abreu, Smith, Bielak, or Scrubb to keep the ball in the yard and navigate the 5th,6th, and 7th innings.

    Meanwhile, we've seen a number of pitchers get really easy 7-8 pitch innings to start a game off against our offense. Altuve flies out on the first pitch, Brantley works a few pitches and grounds out, then Bregman pops up.

    Also, we are starting another 13 games in a row without a day off. Dusty can't go all out with Pressly and Stanek in this series. Meanwhile, the Yankees only have 3 more games after this series before another day off. They can be a little more aggressive with their bullpen arms.

    If we win 1 game the roadtrip is .500. Against the Yankees and Rays that's not terrible.

    Hope I am dead wrong.

    I derive great pleasure from beating the Yankees. Watching their fan base take Ls just hits different from other teams.

    I will say my dislike is mostly towards the Yankee fans. I am sure there are plenty of decent people that cheer on the Yankees, but they have a lot of annoying fans.
