Daily Yankees Predictions 7/4/14: Today We Celebrate Our Independence Day

New, comments

Chase Whitley gets the start for the Yankees this afternoon as they try for two wins in a row. Happy Fourth of July and Happy Birthday George Steinbrenner.

Masahiro Tanaka had an off day, giving up four runs over seven innings and only striking out three batters. Thankfully, the offense heard our pleas and backed him up with some timely hits and a couple of dingers. To be fair though, happy as I am that Phil Hughes has seemingly found himself on the Twins, he owed us a couple meatballs.

7/3/14 Daily Prediction Answers

1. How many innings does the Yankees starter pitch? 7
2. How many hits do the Yankees relievers give up? 0

5. Total number of walks from the Yankees 4, 5, & 6 batters only 0
6. Total number of RBIs from the Yankees 7, 8, & 9 batters only 2

Ahhhh Tanaka Time. The time when pretty much everyone scores at least 1,000 points. Two people,  ASR and selftitled85 scored 3,000 points. However, our winner is Q-TDSK who managed to score 4,000 points. Congrats to all and good luck today!

How will you be celebrating America's Independence today? (For those of you who do celebrate it, I mean)

Happy Birthday Boss: Do you have a favorite George Steinbrenner moment? If so, please share.

Happy Birthday John Sterling: Tell us you favorite AND least favorite Sterling HR call?

Least favorite condiment?

Chase Whitley gets the start for the Yankees today. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the Yankees and their fans declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!

Or, you know, Let's Go Yankees.
