Nice
8-4  
RasputinPrime : 7/5/2019 10:39 pm : link
feels quite nice. Would be even nicer if Sanchez was back to trying to pull every pitch he sees.

Gardy coming through big makes me smile. An all-time great Yankee.
Just when you think

13 home runs for Gardner  
Kyle in NY : 7/5/2019 10:40 pm : link
Already more than last season. Fascinating season for him, feels like he hasn’t been at his best but the power has really been there. For what’s supposed to be the 4th OF, well certainly take it.

Love the emotion the team is showing with each game, special group

They showed a stat earlier about the Indians and As catching fire while they've been 10-17 in the last month. They could fade pretty quick if we put them out of their misery.

Hale remains in the game because of the 4 run lead

but his margin of error won't be very high. Chapman will come in at the first sign of trouble

That's possible if they can't turn it around after the all star break and lose most of their series
Rays get 2 straight singles after Hale records the first out  
dpinzow : 7/5/2019 10:45 pm : link
so Chapman has to come in
Hale did ok.

Bill2 : 7/5/2019 10:51 pm : link
I assume that the willingness to take risks ( like maybe trade for a rental from their talented farm system) is less if aiming for a WC because the payoff is much riskier.

I agree that they would do well to be in a race while looking for real estate deals from other cities but we want to make them think hard and perhaps no be in on trades we may want to make.

None of that plays out if we don't win the series. The closer they get the more they look at our injuries and tough schedule and say "why not us"?

We don't want that

I still remember the Mazeroski home run. It's one of those things that you remember where you were when it happened.
Gardy had 12 HRs all of last season

but I feel this past week we've been cheating the reaper a bit putting the tying run on all the time. ehhh who cares wins are wins just being nit picky...
Another Amazing Game  
Percy : 7/5/2019 11:15 pm : link
Missed some in the middle, but saw the three Yankee homers. Late innings for the Yankees remain a terrifying experience for their opponents. Judge resumes his heroic status. Gardner does it again (yes, yet again) in a key, game-determining HR performance late. Team somehow survives into extra innings -- Rays could have, but didn't win it earlier. BP works well enough, but still unsteady, requiring the closer dramatics of Chapman. Great, great baseball!

That is, missed Hicks' tying HR in the 8th. Sort of an important miss.

Funny thing is Mariano wasn't perfect either. Chapman actually has a higher regular season save percentage than Rivera. 89.1 vs 90.2. Mariano just had this aura with Yankees fans that he never gave up leads.

One reason is that he was almost unbeatable in the playoffs. Another is that his blown saves tended to be clustered together - he'd have a tough couple of weeks, usually early in the season, where he blew a handful of saves and then he would be lights out for the rest of the year.
Chapman's control was pretty darn good tonight.  
BlueLou'sBack : 7/6/2019 1:46 am : link
He made several pitches that, from what we've seen most of this year, should have been called strikes. Certainly when the Yanks are batting those are called strikes. Now all of a sudden they are calling balls unless it actually is in the strike zone...

Cant wait for electronic strikes/balls detection. We are there, as far as the technology is concerned I suspect.

The umps are way too inconsistent.

Katie Sharp


@ktsharp

Yankees: 27th comeback win of season, tied with Dodgers for the most in MLB.

Last year had 37 comeback wins the entire season (12th in MLB)
Chapman sometimes comes out sloppy  
section125 : 7/6/2019 6:18 am : link
and then gets sharper as the inning goes on. Normally when he comes out sharp, he stays sharp and has an easy inning. Big Lou, I disagree, those were a bit outside and he called it that way most of the night. He was not giving low strikes consistently. But it is a rare night Chapman throws 9 pitches to retire the side.
Let's also remember he came on with two on and one out and got out of it. While it wasn't perfect he did his job.

He'll be unavailable today.
Crazy how last year they struggled with the Rays, especially in Tampa  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/6/2019 6:29 am : link
and now they're kicking their asses.

Big-time hits by Hicks, Judge, and Gardy. I wish Boone would give Sanchez and DJ actual days off. Don't want to run them into the ground so early.

Sanchez had the night off, but pinch hit and stayed in the game in the 9th. Romine took a couple of nasty foul tips off the knee and forearm.

Just saw a list and Gardy has played the most - 82 games. DJ has 80. Gardy the part timer playing full time. I guess the $7.5 mill Cash spent on him was worth it.

None are Mariano. We got spoiled watching him.Even with a couple of other HOF contemporaries, there was no comparative closer. Nobody had the year over year, ot just consistency, bht dominance.
That young guy #49 for the Rays...

It would actually be right about now. He generally came out of the break a little tired and had about 2 weeks of tough outings. They'd rest him a drop and then he was lights out the rest of the way.

As for the moron post, nobody claims he was perfect or infallible. But he was head and shoulders the best nearly every year and unquestionably the best when you look year over year. He was dominant every year, right up through his final season. He was consistently great. His contemporaries tended to flane out after 2-3 seasons. He never did.
agree Matt  
Bill2 : 7/6/2019 8:07 am : link
he often had a drop in late July/August and then he would regain form in September through November.

I also agree that he could have had one more season perhaps two but at lesser effectiveness. He had lost mileage by then and he was easier to hit and he needed more rest between games. It was time.

He came back after his injury so he could end on his terms and he did
What is the lastest rumor/consensus in baseball around electronic  
jgambrosio : 7/6/2019 8:24 am : link
Balls and strikes?

Im giddy around how it would help judge's numbers. Imagine all those knee high (or shall I say below) strikes he's gotten in his career.
