Clearly not an ace in postseason. Frown
Guy on third in a tie game with the best bullpen in baseball. I thought it was the right move to pinch hit for him in that situation. He didn’t have his best stuff last night but I thought it battled through it pretty well. Dodgers won which is all that matters in the end.
I did something last night I've never done before and that is watch the game and follow along on Twitter. It was quite an experience.

Now I am a diehard Yankee fan, but seeing the fanatical tweets was hysterical. Of course there were the typical "their strike zone is much larger than our strike zone" comments. My favorites were the number of people who were appalled by the little boy interfering with Judge on the home run. Hello, Yankee fans invented that move, remember Jeffery Maier? The pot calling the kettle black was the number of people who were disturbed by Astros fans shouting "Yankees Suck", again we invented the "Boston Sucks" chant. Me thinks the Millennial Yankee fans need to develop a bit thicker skin.

He was terrific!


He was. It's a little painful to see him do that in an Astros uniform, but I hope they win the Series. He was a great Tiger and it could be worse...he could be wearing pinstripes.
What is the point of having instant replay if you are not not permitted to use it on plays that could be fixed. Umpires got foul tip 3rd strike calls wrong twice in yesterdays Cubs game. Rizzo called out on strikes after he tipped the ball. Grandersons swing and miss on a 3rd strike wrongly called a foul tip. Neither play reviewable.

To make matters worse, earlier in the series, when instant replay was used to change the out at home call on the Contreras tag to a safe call, instant replay got it wrong. Disappointing.

Luckily, none of those calls changed the outcome of any game. My rant is over.

The same thing happened in Game 2 of the ALDS and a bad call cost the Yankees the game.

Thank God the Nationals got rid of Dusty Baker. Truly one of the worst managers I have ever seen to last as long as he did, with a multitude of front running teams he could never make the right calls with. Hopefully it will be the last time someone kicks the tires on him.


Liked Dusty personally, but not a huge fan of him as a manager, especially in the post season. My question is, who's on the market who's significantly better? I'm drawing blanks... Hope the Lerners and Rizzo have a plan, as opposed to a wing and a prayer.

Both teams have won every elimination game this year. That will change tonight. I have a bottle of Dom 2005 in the refrigerator. I sure hope I don't have to put it back in the cellar.


Too bad about the 2017 Yankees and the 2005 Dom.
Hard to figure which was colder.......the Yankee bats or the Champagne.

Given their respective youths, there is some likelihood that both will be excellent next year.
