***Step Away From The Ledge***
Yanks are 5-5. Four convincing wins by at least five runs — and their last two losses required 14 and 12 innings.
Huge road trip here to right the ship (feels weird to say on April 10th).
Bullpen seems to have gotten it together although the Baltimore series really worked everyone. Kahnle threw 48 pitches the other night. yikes..
Couple notes taken from RAB:
-Judge was on base 15 times during the six-game homestand and he’s hitting .289/.438/.500 (170 wRC+) in 48 plate appearances. Only two homers so far, but more will come. The walk rate (18.8%) is insane and yes, he’s still striking out a bunch (27.1%), but he’s striking out a tick less than less year (30.1%). Plus he’s playing the hell out of right field again.
-Austin Romine had three hits Sunday and is 6-for-15 (.400) in the super early going this season. Clearly changed his stance and is more closed than his stance from last year.
-Greg Bird admitted he played through soreness in his ankle during Spring Training, a day or two after Brandon Drury said he’s been battling migraines and blurry vision issues for years. Both said they didn’t tell anyone and tried to play through it.
Series Pitching Probables:
Sevy vs. Sale
Tanaka vs. Price
TBD vs Porcello (gotta be Gray right?)
Let's go Yanks!
