Harris will be called upon a lot this post season. Hopefully he is nails. Seems like in 2015 he was not but a lot has changed since then

it was quite a climb to clinch home field.

after the games of August 17th...the Yankees had a 4 1/2-game lead on the Astros.

NYY was 83-42. Houston was 78-46.

but the Yankees would only go 20-15 over the last 6 weeks of the season while the 'stros went 27-9...and gained 6 1/2 games on the Bombers

The lineup the next two days should be full on starters with JV and Cole fighting for the CY. Hinch can't show favorites or rest a bunch the last day.

Feel free to correct me at any of these spots, but I feel if you made an all AL team based off this season alone it would look something like this:

OF: Trout, Judge, Springer

3B: Bregman, SS: Lindor, 2B: Altuve, 1B Gurriel, Catcher: ? DH: Alvarez and 3 of your starting pitchers would be Astros and probably 2 BP arms.

That's really incredible. That's how you get a 27 Yankees WRC+.

Chirinos would be the catcher

I'd probably lean towards James McCann but Chorizo is close.

Yep. And the only thing keeping Uncle Mike off the list is the AL outfield is loaded with generational badasses, and Correa would be in the conversation with Lindor if he wasn't made of glass.

My gosh Will Harris has been phenomenal. Best arm in this bullpen


Crazy, I couldn't stand Harris last season.

Hopefully Devo can have a similar reversal


Sounds like a you problem. Harris has always been good.

Anyone want a 7-3/8 low profile Apollo 11 hat? Mine came in today and I immediately realized how much I don't like low profile hats.

Let me know and it's yours

This is like hearing Harry Caray doing his "All-Time National League team" during a WGN rain delay.


"Well Steve, here's what I have. Ryno at second base (Joe Morgan?), Ernie Banks at shortstop, Ron Santo at third (Mike Schmidt?), and of course in the outfield you've got to have Billy Williams (Willie Mays?), Andre Dawson (Hank Aaron) ..."

Isn't that about the time you said the race for best record was essentially over and the Astros had too many dead spots in the lineup to compete with the Yankees?

One more win and if things work out perfectly, we get Grienke hitting in an NL park in the World Series.

Feels like home field in a potential WS this year is a much bigger deal than 2017 with Yordan.

Between Yordan and Greinke, we can have a clear advantage in 5 of the 7 games.

A few tweaks.

2B: DJ LeMahieu (clearly)
1B: Carlos Santana (maybe)
OF: Replace Judge with Meadows.

I think we will be ok. If we can't do it throwing JV and Cole, who will go all out for the CY, we don't deserve it.

This. I had a colleague tell me after the 12th inning loss to the Angels that we were in trouble for HFA. All I could think is if this team isn't prepared to do what it takes to beat a bad Angels team at least 2 games then who cares about HFA, I'd be worried about the playoffs. Ready to watch JV & Cole deliver the goods.

I wish the Astros would say what is really going on with Correa's back. A few days ago Carlos was saying it was nothing like last year. Now he may not play in the playoffs. I keep hoping Carlos is just being a baby and will play.

After last night I think Urquidy made the case over Miley.

Had a bad outing July 31st. Came back for 4 appearances since then (2 starts, 2 in relief)

9/5 - 4 IP - 2 hits - 1 ER - Relief - Seattle
9/11 - 5 IP - 1 hit - 1 ER - Start - Oakland
9/21 - 3 IP - 4 hits - 1 ER - Relief - LAA
9/27 - 6 IP - 3 hits - 0 ER - Start - LAA

Only Oakland has faced him.

NY, TB, & MIN have never seen him. So that is a small plus.

Dude you've lost a **** ton of weight. Congrats
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

If Trout is a man, he should go onto the field during Sunday's game, kneel before Bregman, and kiss Bregman's MVP ring.
