Crushed it and it went nowhere. I just do not understand why MLB would do this. Its clear they did though

In most parks, that's a double. But with the Crawford Boxes, teams shade towards the gap.

Friggin crap. At least we knocked out Paxton though

You only get so many chances.....If we lose this game these last two innings will haunt us.

They know the book on Yordan and so keeping it up in the zone

Staring down meaty pitches and getting under these crap ones.

Just like that, two quick outs. We'll see if it works long-term, but it got him out of the jam

the Yankees know the scouting report on the 'stros.

overpower them with fastballs up in the zone

I'm not too upset there. Bregman put a great swing on it.

This game could easily be 4-0. Hopefully that doesn't bite us in the ass
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.

That's the scouting report on all baseball players

Might as well move Alvarez down in the lineup, looks at his pitch to hit then swings at that crap

Remember when we would score 3 runs in an inning set up like that?

So many first pitches right down the pipe. We stare them down.

Don't they consider their bullpen the strength of their pitching staff? Maybe makes sense from that standpoint.


Yeah but the more looks you get at their bullpen the more vulnerable they are

Key for the yanks was not going to the BP too early

Can't expect Verlander to pitch a shutout every damn time.

Yordon not even thinking they'll challenge him inside with the heater. Gotta be ready to swing at those.

Tucker needs to replace Alvarez at DH.

If they get one of those funky HR coming weird off the bat like 2017 I'm breaking something

I was reserving judgement during the DS, but after some of the balls hit by both teams last night and so far today that looked crushed but didn't go anywhere, I'm convinced something changed.

At some point, we need a bleeder or a bloop to drive in a run. Plenty of hard hit balls the last two nights with nothing to show for it.

I rewatched the highlights of the 2017 ALCS recently, and that Todd Frazier one handed HR in game 4 or 5 was so cheap. I still can't believe it got out.

Those were some awful pitches from jv
