It's a bitch that those Maddox, Glavine and Smoltz pitches are still a foot outside after seeing them in digital format, huh? Now you blind Braves douche bags can finally see for yourselves that the success they had was as illegitimate as fuck.

What happened, couldn't find a dynasty baseball team to root for in the '80's, like the bandwagon that you hopped on with the Lakers, so you waited for Bobby Cox and friends to pull you into baseball? Fucking fraud.

If I'm Joe,  
section125 : 10/8/2017 8:16 pm : link
I'm having them take until Carrasco throws a strike. He's only thrown a few actual strikes. And they are all swinging at that slider low and away. He's thrown 1 FB on the outside corner for a called strike...

Is it me or are there a lot of Indians fans there?

The Indians made a double play I hear cheering.
Kipnis gets a triple I hear cheering than a Let's Go Yankees chant which never happens after the road team gets a base hit unless they are trying to drown out road fans.

Bah?
This is the Indians!

Carrasco is obviously very good

Stu11 : 10/8/2017 9:17 pm : link
Is the same with Bauer in game 1. Everything is at the knees or below. They are not hanging 1 godamn pitch. You can say lay off it , Bird should have laid off the 3-1 but the 3-2 one was absolutely filthy
Ellsbury  
bceagle05 : 10/8/2017 9:18 pm : link
sure crashed back down to earth.
Amazing that the Yankees hitters  
hitdog42 : 10/8/2017 9:19 pm : link
Are not sitting on breaking balls- watching them flail at 2-0 and 2-1 and 3-2 curve balls as if it isnít blatantly obvious that they are going to throw curve balls... is driving me insane

would have been massive considering how dead the bats have been. It's tied and they look like they're pressing at the plate. I don't want to know what it'll be like if they're down by multiple runs.

Castro has no discipline

Miller may be an exception to this rule because he rarely Ives you anything hittable, but he's seemingly allergic to working a count.
Tanaka  
dune69 : 10/8/2017 9:50 pm : link
has been incredible.
I won't give Girardi an ounce of shit if we lose tonight  
Stu11 : 10/8/2017 9:54 pm : link

I would personally save Betances as closer but also have an emergency Stud like Robertson (he's tired but as an emergency guy we need everyone else prior) backup incase you he puts a man or two on base

Much more power, imo. Olerud was a 20-25 HR guy in his best years (actually, 24, I just checked). I think that Bird could easily be a 30 HR guy fairly often. Of course, Olerud hit .350 or so a few times, so there's that.

Girardi deserves another 2 years to see this through either to a championship or his dismissal. Unfair to toss him out this year for one poorly managed game when the team under his stewardship exceeded all expectations by getting into the division series

Not exactly fair since the team was in a slow-motion rebuild from 2012 to now. In years where he had a championship caliber team (2009-2011) he won a ring and got to an ALCS

If he's right, he can match anyone. He'll be 100% rested against Bauer who will be sailing in uncharted waters for him.

That's because folks are so ready and willing to play the blame game. You know, like our fearless leader.

Booing Girardi tonight is an insult to intelligent fans. Fuck everyone who did so. I hope that each one of them isn't judged on one mistake they make, with folks saying that THEY should lose their job, or their spouse, or whatever else is meaningful to them.

Get off the soap box. Girardi blew it and blew it badly. He deserved to be booed, just the way it is. A chance to beat Kluber and he doesn't look for the replay when Sanchez is telling him it was a foul tip? Getting beat on a pitching change is one thing, not asking for the replay when it costs nothing is a terrible mistake.

Would you want people who are supposed to be in your corner to boo you, especially if you've had a "season" like Girardi has had? Thanks for everything, close the door on the way out? I think it would have been classy to cheer him rather than boo him, and it would have actually picked up the team more if the fans did so. But perhaps that's more classy than you are.

Bill, I'm just so tired of the blame game that so many of us engage in. Perhaps politics has a big part in my discontent, but to boo a guy who puts everything he has into his job and once in a while fails, but succeeds far more often, seems classless to me. Look in the mirror, folks.

It's good to see you post. This place misses your sanity. Bird will be a big part of our young core. His start this season was not as expected but he has had some clutch at bats and big homeruns. Many wanted to quit on Severino and Judge last year. It takes time for a young player.
Letís hope they are drilling the hitters...

Kyle in NY : 10/9/2017 8:15 am : link
What a night. That stadium sounded like the old place. The way this team had energized the fan base is so cool. And to see the emotion from the players, guys like Bird, Judge, Chapman who are normally so even-keeled, is such a blast. Win or lose, this is already one of my favorite Yankee teams ever.

Now for tonight: On paper I like the matchup. I've seen Bauer get rocked too many times to fully buy into his revival. However, the hitters have to go to school on their game 1 ABs and adjust to that breaking ball. Easier said than done, but hopefully he's not as sharp on short rest.

First inning is going to be huge for Sevy. If he gets through that clean I think he gets on a roll.

It would help if tonight's home plate ump doesn't call a strike simply because Bauer throws a pitch. The ump in his first start was a joke

I'm on the road so I don't post very often, but thanks for the kind words. In 2015 we we're rated the 18th best farm by BA. Our top 5 prospects included a future ace, a ROY who could win MVP, a silver slugger catcher, our starting 1B and the centerpiece of the Gray deal. We are in a great spot right now, even if we don't win two more games.
