Since the 2009 College World Series when he pulled a ridiculous Houdini act to get out of jams repeatedly for 3 extra innings as Arkansas beat UVA in a game they had no business winning. Want to beat that bastard so bad, I can taste it.

BTW, feels sweet to finally pay Francona back for 2004.

PaulBlakeTSU : 10/12/2017 12:41 am : link
and two things about ARod are clear

1. He loves the Yankees and being a Yankee immensely.
2. He is already a fantastic baseball analyst.

While I'd like to see him work for the Yankees in a player development role, I could see him carving out a long broadcasting career.

Yep. And he has a ton of money. And he's dating Jennifer Lopez, who still looks like she's 30.

What a life.
Agreed, Paul

He's great in the studio but I do hope he chooses to play more of a role in player development for the Yankees.

I think Holliday will be active for the ALCS  
Stu11 : 10/12/2017 12:51 am : link
just looked it up he hits both Morton and Liriano(might see him in long relief) well. Honestly I would be tempted to go with Austin over Headley
Anyhooooo  
Greg from LI : 10/12/2017 12:53 am : link
Very different kind of series coming up. From facing a great pitching staff, now they have to vanquish a great lineup.

Ellsbury likely stays on the roster for pinchrunning and a DH platoon. Much as I'd like to see Headley go, I suspect that the lack of other IF options saves him. There's no way that Torreyes is their only backup infielder.

So that leaves Holliday. Wonder if they give Red Thunder or Austin the nod.

Beating the Indians in the '98 ALCS was actually more satisfying to me than even the World Series for that reason. I was absolutely dying for revenge for '97. It was my favorite series win of the dynasty run.

Here's a fun stat - Lindor and Ramirez were a combined 4-38.
Hah! The Yankees' social media staff are going scorched earth

and unlike Judge he did it without the umps fucking half his AB's...
Greg I hear ya on '98. Game 6 was the first playoff game I ever got to go to. It was a party pounding the crap out of them and getting revenge (got to go to game 1 of the WS too) what a great year...back then the Yanks didn't fill the stadium every game and they came up with this promotion mid season that if you bought tickets to like 10 games at once for the rest of the year you could buy playoff tickets to 1 game per series. I had this great friend who organized like 10 of us and we went to ton of games that historic season then the playoffs...ahh good times! got married that year too
I still can't fully process it  
jcn56 : 10/12/2017 1:10 am : link
We had tickets to game 3 and after reviewgate was praying that we weren't going to see a sweep. Instead, got an instant classic from Tanaka and they pulled the series out.

Exactly what I'm saying... What a better feeling this is! Love it!!!!
This from ESPN stats:  
Stu11 : 10/12/2017 1:27 am : link
ESPN Stats and Information



Brett Gardner was 0-for-8 in the first 2 games of this series, but 6-for-13 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored in the last 3. Didi Gregorius was 0-for-9 in the first 2 games of the series, but 4-for-8 in the last 3, including 2 HR in Game 5. Gregorius homered twice on inside pitches.

Thats your series right there. Gardy and Didi did nothing the first 2 games and came on strong at the end, whereas Lindor and Ramirez shit the bed for virtually the whole series. Also after a monster 2 games, Bruce disappeared the last 3.
The Fox post game is so good  
Kyle in NY : 10/12/2017 1:28 am : link
ARod is fantastic, always liked Keith Hernandez, and it's even making me sort of like Ortiz. He's legitimately funny and the banter with ARod is great.

So fired up by this win so I can't sleep, so I'm enjoying this production

WIth all the blather about Girardi, Francona has now presided over two HUGE gag jobs in 2 years, blowing a 3-1 lead in last year's WS, and now this.
Earned a lot of respect for Jay Bruce after reading  
mfsd : 10/12/2017 8:40 am : link
his postgame comments. He dismissed a question about 7 Indians errors and said we didnít beat ourselves, we got beat.

Even a dejected Kluber gave Didi and the Yanks a lot of respect in the locker room after the game.

Francona was customarily classy after the game too.

Fans are fans, not going to spend time worrying about what Cleveland fans are saying, NY fans have been similarly absurd after bad losses in different sports over the years

But you learn a lot about players and managers with how they handle losing a series like that

Nah, I legitimately think it's pretty good. I've seen a similar sentiment out there. ARod gets really good reviews

I agree too. My wife kids and I got a big kick out of the ARod-Big Sloppy banter throughout the series. They mix up the yucks with some pretty good baseball analysis. Sloppy doesn't add much, he could go but I love having him there right now for ARod to beat on...The YES guys are good analysts int he post game, but who can listen to them for 30 minutes straight? you fall asleep.

Yup for sure

One thing about the game 2 aftermath - you can tell Girardi earned a lot of respect from the players with the way he handled it afterwards

Yeah, I kind of liked Papi. I think he had just a tad trouble with his English getting out exactly what he was trying to say. I don't mean this to put him down. It is his 1st talking head gig and to be quick and succinct in your 2nd language is tough - I thought he and ARod were fun. Papi knows his shit.
Big Hurt is a good guy, but very quiet. Hernandez knows his stuff but ARod and Papi were just playing off each other. 5 guys in the booth is too much.
Stu  
Kyle in NY : 10/12/2017 9:06 am : link
yeah that's what I mean. It's got a bit of a TNT "Inside the NBA" vibe with Barkley and that group.

The analysis is pretty good but you also get that with YES. But the banter is actually pretty funny. YES gets a bit dry and self serious. And I haven't minded Ortiz like I thought I would. Him saying "that's baseball, Suzyn" last night had me laughing.

Kyle in NY : 10/12/2017 10:23 am : link
I think they played the radio call of the final out, and they asked Ortiz for his best Sterling impression. So he did the "theeeee Yankees win" and then just as they were getting ready to move on he goes "that's baseball, suzyn".

ARod and Burkhardt the host lost it laughing. In his broken english too it was great, legitimately funny
