Nice half inning.

Very nice. 6 runs.
Amazing  
dune69 : 9/10/2017 4:38 pm : link
Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Judge.

Yankees that have hit 40 HR's by the age of 25.

Waiting for Irma but still cheering the Yanks her in Florida.
Great job, Monty.  
Dave in Hoboken : 9/10/2017 4:40 pm : link
Genius, actually.
Montgomery walks the lead of guy  
section125 : 9/10/2017 4:40 pm : link
and is now 7 straight balls....
Monty will be lucky to last 5.  
Dave in Hoboken : 9/10/2017 4:43 pm : link
Ugh.
Yup, 80 pitches already. But he's a kid.

I have high hopes for him to be a part of this rotation for the next decade.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing...
I would have thought

Joe would lift Green with the 8 run lead again.
that was Andrus` 41st double

I have to admit

Judge is the best hitter in the world in a 9-1 game. (don't pile on me!).

I'll go 30/70....it would be a first.
I'll be damned.

He did it on one pitch.
I wonder what the record is for combined HRs by teammates  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 9/10/2017 6:04 pm : link
25 year-old or younger. Sanchez and Judge at 71 right now.
Judge and El Gary with 2 HRs

El Gary!

Just missed - catching Judges for long HR today - only 461 ft for #30.

83 RBIs for Sanchez now, fantastic given the time missed.

If Bird becomes the player we all hope for, and if Torres is the real deal, this offense will be something special.
Nice to work Betances

Sanchez coming back strong is the story of the season - beyond even Judge. A 3.6 WaR puts him 2nd in the majors behind Posey at catcher.

Love those Gary stats.  
bceagle05 : 9/10/2017 6:37 pm : link
Game 161 in his career - 50 HR, 125 RBI.

that the trio of Judge, Sanchez and Bird would hit 100.

Bird still not hitting as expected. Not far off.

Now that Judge has hit 3 this week, does it look like he is coming out of his slump or just bad Rangers/Orioles pitching.
Walked  
Phil in LA : 9/10/2017 7:14 pm : link
again today, too.107, rookie record. I think he's about to explode.

It certainly looks like it. He is again hitting to all fields, hitting balls hard, and most importantly he is walking. But, even when hot, he still strikes out too much.

He never stopped getting walks. OBP is well over .400. Two HRs to right is a good sign.

mitch300 : 9/10/2017 7:44 pm : link
Judge gets hot which looks like he might be, he can carry the team for a couple of weeks. Him and Sanchez hitting at the same time can be fun to watch.
And aside from Judge and Sanchez  
mfsd : 9/10/2017 7:49 pm : link
How about the season Didi is having? Or Headley with a .927 post All Star break OPS? Pretty remarkable

Betances needs to get his shit together. But that's another big series win
I know, Sanchez needs to clean up the passed balls, but still..  
manh george : 9/10/2017 8:53 pm : link
he has 46 more RBI than the 10th best catcher in the majors, after missing a month. He has 14 passed balls. So, how many runs extra has Sanchez's extra passed balls let in? Maybe 8? So his net extra RBIs vs. 10th best in the league is maybe 38?

I know that's simplified, but the main point is that Sanchez needs to improve relative to his current self, because he is strong to great in practically every other aspect of the game. His caught stealing % is 8th in the league, and his catcher ERA--the pitcher ERA when he catches-- is a surprisingly strong tied for 3rd in the league.

The Yankees have so many guys who are superior hitters right now, especially if Judge is truly back. Didi and Castro kicking ass, and so, shockingly, is Headley.
Sanchez is a hitting machine.  
section125 : 9/11/2017 12:22 am : link
If Judge can just turn it around to average, they could beat anybody in a series. I think Castro and Bird back takes a load of pressure off Judge.

I also think Joe should flip Gardy and Ells right now.

I don't know what happened to Headley in May, but what a remarkable turn around.

I'm not too sure Bird's teammates are comforted by the fact his bat is in the lineup now. If anything they're fighting to make the playoffs and he's been a zero offensively. I think that adds to the pressure.

Similar to Judge, Bird is just missing pitches. I don't think he is far off. Judge seems that he is coming around a little bit. Bird needs ABs to cure his ills.
