Daily Yankees Predictions 5/4/14: Sabathia going for the series win

YOUR FEEBLE POWERS ARE NO MATCH FOR THE DARK SIDE OF THE 4TH!

Watching Tanaka pitch well when we really need him to is amazing. Watching the Yankees beat the Rays never gets boring. Having the Yankees win another series vs. a division rival has be scientifically proven to be a good thing. So do that.

The love for Masahiro Tanaka is growing after every start. His "so-so" starts are not only fun to watch, but needed. Yesterday, we needed a long, relatively painless outing from Tanaka. That's exactly what he gave us. To quote Harlan from yesterday's game thread,

The fact that Tanaka is able to go out there and give them 7 when he clearly didn’t have his stuff is even more of a statement about his long-term success than when he has it all working and lights it up.

I stuck with his original username, because we really do have to talk about Tex...baby. He's hitting extremely well. It's refreshing to see. Speaking of refreshing, let's drink down a tall glass of math!

The Aardvarks are sober again. Well, partially sober. Okay, they probably shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car. Or on a bike. Or on the bus for that matter. Either way, they did the math and it shows that thus far, May is Women's Prediction Month. The 1st of May belonged to Blanky. The 2nd of May belonged to Waffles. The 3rd of May belongs to xoxojackie. It hasn't even been a week since she joined, and jackie has already claimed victory with 4,000 points. Definitely a nice way to welcome yourself onto the best Yankee forum in the universe!

Let this be a joyous lesson for other lurkers who are itching to join our merry little group! Anything is possible on the Pinstripe Alley!

CC Sabathia will take the mound for the Yankees in today's rubber match against the Rays. A win would mean a series win. Series wins are scientifically proven to be both fun and beneficial for further success. I think we all like both fun and further Yankee success. Victor wants to be posted again. Let's not disappoint him.
