PSA Comments of the Day 8/26/14: The Hunt For Pinstriped October

The Yankees are pitching well. The Yankees are also doing that other thing called "scoring runs" as well. This is the kind of winning combination that could help the Yankees vault over the Tigers on their quest for the playoffs

Comment of the Game

LTL was not too fond of the lineup today.

Then he felt bad for questioning the genius of Girardi and the binder (also commonly and correctly known as "Girinder")

Best GIF of the Recap

According to NoMahbles, Victor's feeling a tad more bad-ass lately. Probably has to do with the recent surge of offense.

Honorable Mod Mention

I don't believe there's a more honorable cause than a free t-shirt giveaway. Especially if you consider the price. Nevertheless, Matt F tried to win, but was a tad off in his prediction. Better luck next time!

Best Comments of the Day

It's rare that we take a COTD from the Game Thread, but this one was most worthy of the COTD accolade. This description of how aliasalias became a Yankees fan is nothing short of awesome. A great reminder that location isn't the only way you become a fan of a team.

The Yankees currently have a five game winning streak. They're also scoring runs. As in, more than four runs. Combined with their excellent and somewhat unbelievable pitching staff, everything is currently going in the right direction: to the playoffs. Tonight they begin a three game series against one of the teams ahead of them in the Wild Card standings. Brandon "I can't believe it's not Nuno" McCarthy faces off again Rick Porcello of the Detroit Tigers. While the Tigers starting rotation is a force to be reckoned with, their bullpen has recently been taxed by the Twins. Also, it's not very good.

Let's Go Yankees!
