Bah... Cessa gives up 2 more, so again we're going to probably need to dip into our leverage arms to get through this one.

That would be so sweet. And just in time, since I don't think Gardy, Urshela, and Tauchman can stay as hot as they've been lately. We'll need a new guy to step up and carry the load.

Best Yankees record at 122 games since '98. Of course, they were 92-30 at that point.

Think about that - as awesome as this team has been, they'd be 11 games back of the '98 Yankees. Dayum.
Judge has pulled the ball a couple times...

with not his finest moment handling the BP, but they got a sweep. Cessa should have been out, before giving up a
2 run double to Nunez (one of his 5 hits), Ottavino comes
in to face the lefty, gives up a hit, now a one run game.
BTW> Ottavino struggles a lot more against lefties.
You get away with it against the odorous O's, but I'm
looking ahead to October, and they might not get away
with that BP maneuvering then, just saying.
Again, glad they got a sweep, but you can't ignore the
moves today.
Missed It  
Percy : 8/14/2019 4:37 pm : link
As I feared I would. Happ was better, but Cessa has reverted to being Cessa, I see. Scored just enough to keep it away from the O's, which is enough, and got a great ending from Chapman. A game. Another win.

If Tampa is to make a race out of it, these next ten games are key. Yankees are facing teams with winning records, the Rays are facing cupcakes.

Well, that and when he doesn't try to play hero ball,
and try and do too much...he's his own worst enemy
at times when he is slumping.

Only here will you find complaints about Adam Ottavino.

Sub-2 ERA, striking out nearly 13 per 9. One of the best middle relievers in baseball this year. But, he let a couple of inherited runners score, so...

It's amazing the way people just continually force themselves to search for things to complain about or nitpick.

The Yankees have the best record in baseball and are neck and neck with HOU/LA despite being without literally half their baseball team for about half of this season to date.

Are the Yankees perfect or indestructible? Of course not. But when we're starting to complain about Ottavino, I think we're probably in pretty damn good shape.

Amazing how many of those were on three ball counts too. Just giving the pitcher more chances. A bunch of them he was about to throw the bat to the dugout and he had to stop himself. Can't believe he hasn't gone apeshit yet.

While the record of the 1998 team is absolutely amazing and this team although tremendous would be 11 games back of the 98 team...would the 98 team have been able to come within this teams record with this teams injuries ( especially to its pitching staff)?

I grant its another: Whose better Wille, Mickey or the Duke? kinds of questions, but "amazing team" is the right common description either way.

Hope you are well my friend

The injury situation makes this team's accomplishments incomparable.
Hi Bill!  
Greg from LI : 8/15/2019 9:18 am : link
Very well indeed. Be a lot better when I finally finish my masters - night school is for the birds.

That's absolutely true. There's a sense of wonder with this team that wasn't there in '98. While no one expected 114 wins, people DID expect that team to be the best in baseball. They were primed for a huge year and they delivered even beyond those expectations.

But yeah, the only notable injury they incurred was Chili Davis missing most of the season. So there's a magical kind of feeling this '19 crew has that's all its own.

The top five in the bullpen are written in stone : Green, Kahnle, Britton, Ottavino, and Chapman. If Betances is healthy, he'll have one as well. Beyond those guys, spots are open.

Interesting from Sherman re Montgomery:

The Yankees do not need Labor Day wizardry from Severino. Their big AL East cushion allows a steady progression. Rosters will expand in September to better protect Severino, perhaps with Betances and even Jordan Montgomery, who Cashman noted actually is ahead of Severino as he returns from Tommy John surgery.

The goal is to stretch Severino to 90 pitches by October, prepare a talent who can navigate a strong lineup more than two times due to overwhelming stuff.
