Altuve was never at 3rd with no outs. He was sent back after review, which was the correct call. I agree we should score with a Leadoff double most of the time, but AJ will never bunt Brantley or Bregman. SABR baseball is different than what we grew up on.

To be fair to SABR baseball... taking an automatic out there to get the runner over to add on one more run probably would not have won it for us today. The higher risk / reward was the way to go when you give up 10 runs.

Tough crowd...this is the best team in baseball, tomorrow will be interesting, we usually clobber middle relievers ...

If you're Tampa, and 1 game from elimination, is it really your best shot to stay alive by going with some guy named Diego Castillo and your bullpen?

3 appearances vs Houston:
4 IP, 5 hits/2 BB, 3 R (2 earned), 1 K


Tampa probably has seen our offensive stats the last month on 6.0 ERA pitchers

We'll be the best team in baseball if we win 9 more games.

2017 American League Division Series (ALDS) Game 4, Astros at Red Sox, October 9

Again JV did not start but did pitch 2 2/3 innings and got the W.

And the HR was cheapie near the Pesky Pole

The craziest part about that box score is that Reddick hit in the 2 hole in games 3 & 4. Wow.

Yankees have made some great defensive plays to kill any rallys

And coming up with clutch hits with RISP. I can only hope the Astros can do the same eventually.

We're the best team in baseball now. Winning nine more games makes us World Series champions. It's baseball. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

This is nonsense. Small bad is dead because it doesn't work as well. The postseason is tough. Hits are harder to come by. Home runs are usually the difference. We need to start smacking dingers. The end.

Hitting them with runners on base is helpful as well

Well looks like the Yanks will sweep and we will play tomorrow night...gives Justin another 5-6 hours of rest and means he will have 3.5 days of rest. Every hour counts.

Dunno but he was walking very gingerly when he left the game. I thought he had a hemorrhoid or something.
