If we can split the next two, we should take this series in 6 with Verlander

Or we can just win it in 5 and have a stadium full of sad Yankees

It helps when your opponent refuses to catch a ball. They have 3 defensive misses so far.

Yordan sucks. Sit his ass down and put someone, anyone, in the DH spot, and we come out ahead. That is all,

So if Nats sweep and we go 6 or 7, how many days off before WS start?

Games 6 and 7 are Saturday and Sunday. WS game 1 is Tuesday.

7-0 Nats still batting bottom 1


MLB deserves showing this laugher during prime time.

Looks like Verlander will throw game 5.

Fist Game for The Series is scheduled for next Tuesday. If the ALCS goes seven, it will be played on Sunday.

We are ahead.

Hinch has got this, he is way outperforming Boone

edit to rephrase in a less presumptive way.

A starting pitcher who went today would have 6 days of rest before next Tuesday if they did not have to throw again this weekend. And a starting pitcher on this Friday would have full rest before next Wednesday.

What I did there, you see it.

So much this

Boone is lost and grasping at straws constantly. He has no clue what he's doing.

Screw everyone in the media that says we are scared to play in NY
Who says that? This team isn't afraid of anyone. Nor should they be.


A lot of talking heads like to bring up we lost all 3 games up there in 2017. Mad Dog Russo has been banging the drum the loudest. Called this series over in 5. Then again, I hope he's onto something with that prediction.
Yes, that prediction is still in play.

It was. Altuve called his own number, in the post game interview he said he saw the steal sign and got a pitch he could drive and executed it flawlessly

We have good players. We also have smart players. Our team is baseball intelligent. Wins you games like this. Altuve hit and run the springer waving Altuve to take third while he gets in a run down. That was HUGE.

Yordan sucks? Would you like Tucker to play? He's been swinging at pitches so far above his head he's had to jump. Yordan is due. Short porch in right. You play him. It hasn't cost us a game yet. Game 1 nobody hit.

i think i would almost prefer a rainout. grienke game 4, jv game 5, pen in 6, gc in 7. if it works out that way, you'd have the WS rotation with grienke in 1 and 5, jv 2 and 6, and gc 3 and 7.

My point was we come out ahead in productivity in that spot in the lineup. I know we won the game, but Yordans inability to do anything but strikeout and walk is a concern going forward. I would rather see someone else in the DH spot next game to get some kind of clutch performance with runners on base.

I just wanna give a big shout out and thank you to one Gary Sanchez.

He's an awful catcher and the pass ball he allowed ended up being a difference maker.

That combined with his sub .100 postseason BA is doing wonders for the good guys!

Thanks AGAIN Gary!!! Love ya bud
The Yankees made McCann available to us because they decided to make Snchez their starter, and McCann was a big part of the Astros first world championship. Bless the Yankees rotten little hearts.

It took 3.5 games for a cards starting player to drive in a run. Woof.

In my opinion Boone is out of sorts because I think he saw what the Ray's did to us and how successful their approach was and he all of a sudden tried to copy it

Only thing is that's what the Rays do and they're good at it. That's not what the Yankees do.

He's completely out of his element and it shows.

I guess you haven't noticed, but Yordan is not the only one that hasn't been exactly clutch.

I have no problem with moving him down in the lineup but it is simply insane to take him out of the lineup considering what he accomplished this season.

Didn't get selected for the WS ticket lotto. If any of you were selected but decide not to go, please send me a PM. I'll front the cash and pay for your time to sit in the queue.
