It seems like the Yankees are who the tea sips would want to be.

Did not know Greinke was asked to be on SI cover as well and he declined.

Sorry if old news. Did Astros know Greinke had anxiety issues before they signed him?

And again, Reddick has had an abysmal post season too
Did he not hit an actual HR in Game Three? Or did I just imagine that?
And in the playoffs a 2 run lead feels way different than a 1 run lead to a pitcher. Cole could be a little extra aggressive knowing a solo shot wouldn't tie it. Also his homer was technically the winning run...but yeah, abysmal. Might need to exercise the ignore button.

Yes

Wildly known

Also doesn't impact his pitching any more than an aLCS game would impact someone else

He just doesn't want to be in a huge media market like New York with constant interviews and paparazzi

Said it before 10 pages ago - we win tonight we go to The World Series.

No way Jankees beat us 3 games in a row. Not at home, not with JV and GC.

Zack reminds everyone why he was the biggest trade deadline news this year.

Let's go!!!!!

They know everything about everyone they sign.

But yes they did. It's been widely known for awhile and he's spoken publicly about it.

Will AJ take his players off the field if objects are thrown at the players? Security did nothing about during the last game.

Why does judge bat 2nd instead of 4th? Seems like some Derek bell snowflake crap.

Just remember, if we didn't acquire Grienke Wade Miley would likely be pitching tonight...or more likely Jose as Wade would still likely have the same issues. Having a player of his caliber to pitch tonight is a luxury few teams possess.

Could he get lit up...sure, especially with the wind howling out to right but he's a playoff proven future HOF pitcher and I hope he can keep his change-up and pretty much all of his pitches down tonight.

But Tanaka tho...

I'm ready to write off tonite because of Tanaka.

In the end, Yankees have to win three out of four...and two of those games will be started by Cole and JV. You do the math

I'm not writing off tonight. Tanaka is nothing special and we've lit him up before. We're going to do it again tonight.

I'm calling it.

Yordan is hitting a bomb tonight. The whole offense is going to show up.

So according to A-Rod tanakas splitter will dive more in the wind, but papi said it will hang more... I'm glad the booth is all on the same page

With this wind, I think Yordan could bunt one over the wall. He could hit a check swing bomb that makes Frazier's cheap swing look like he he was swinging out of his shoes.

Yordan might just scare a ball over the wall without even taking his bat off his shoulder.

Yordan is jumping on a splitter tonight in a manner that makes Yankee fans go silent for the remainder of their short postseason lives.

LFG!

I like your style...

Short porch in right and wind blowing out to RC? We're gonna see some weakly hit homers tonite. Indeed Yordan is due

SABR actually says to hit your best hitter 2nd. Over the course of the year they end up with a good bit more ab's

Wasn't antsy in game 2 and 3. This game gives me the willies.

Gotta start strong so I'm tossing out my favorite Rally Kate pic as the lead off. This one is it for me.

Tanaka looked pretty hittable in game 1 imo.

I think getting a second look at him will do the Stros good... I expect a much better performance tonight
