    I saw this clip in an article on the NYY site and just loved the phrasing.........

    How will the bullpens line up after the starter?

    Yankees: After using each of their “Four Horsemen” -- Adam Ottavino, Tommy Kahnle, Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman -- to lock down Game 1, Boone was able to get through a breezier Game 2 by only asking for three outs each from Kahnle and Ottavino. Look for Chad Green to be available as the Bombers’ Swiss Army knife reliever, and if they don’t use him, Green may be in play to serve as an opener should there be a Game 4.

    The full article can be found here.........

    …..or....Bring on the Rays! You never know.

    I do hope that the Rays win next and force a game five so that the Astros cannot line up their aces for the next series.

    I know everyone thinks I'm too hard on him, but I'm not trying to be a jerk in this instance, but can someone very gently tell him it's Yankees and not Yankee's?

    I'm not saying you need to go into a whole tutorial on how to use the apostrophe, but I think someone who fancies himself the biggest Yankees fan on the planet should know that there's no reason to show ownership in this instance. Again, not trying to be a dick here.

    Lastly, for the brave soul that takes on this endeavor, please take notice of the part where I said gently. He will more than likely take it as a personal attack. Best of luck.

    Considering how the Yankees have performed with a plethora of injuries it seems unfair to consider it a one man Yankee team.

    Fair & Equitable statement, IMHO. Not sure what the "Yankee's*" are all about.

    Saw this article on the Yank's website that seemed a fairly, fair assessment. Naturally, I have to disagree with the final prediction................

    Can you say....Ma-Sa-Hiro?????????

    Can you say.......Bullpen?????

    What about.....Gleyber Torres?????

    Yankee's: 1 Astro's: 0








    Spoiler:
    Oh, and another multi hit game by D.J. & Judge!!!! Stanton, may be getting it together with 2 hits tonight including a HR!! Ya know, (and I'm sure someone will contradict me), but Joe Buck and everyone go on about the bullpen like it is a brand new thing. In fact, the Yanks have been doing this since '98 when it was, Stanton, Nelson & Mo. They also had a version of Green in Ramiro Mendoza (not quite even steven but still). Also, with the line up changes it may be time to move, Judge down one in the batting order and replace him with, Gardner. He's not getting the RBI chances he could though I realize his on base is wonderful and he scored runs. Still it may be worth consideration.


    Spoiler:
    And you just can't say enough about, Torres. 5 RBI's tonight out of 7 runs!!!! He's the new, Jeter as far as coming through in the big moments and with more HR power.

    I hate to say the first game in a series is a must win, but I thought last night's game was just that. With Grienke on the mound on the road, that's a huge way to start the series. They have to beat every pitcher not named Cole/Verlander. That's just the way it is.

    A couple of years ago, it wasn't so much Verlander that cost them the series. It was guys like Morton, McCullers and McHugh that they struggled against.

    If they could ever steal the game tonight...

    Okay, sports fans here we go. Game 2 is Verlander who they seem to be again pitching on short rest. I watched the game 5 on, Thursday I believe and the "V" man did not have it going on in the least. Here he is pitching on what? 3 days rest? After his less than stellar game 5 performance? The Bombers have beaten this guy before mainly, as I recall, when he was with Detroit, but still. We can take this guy and get into the pen.

    This is by no means a "gimmee" for the 'Stro's!!!!! So, same game plan as all year, be patient, take pitches and get deep in the count and, Verlander and the rest of the, Astro's staff can be beaten!!!!! Cole may be a different story, but we can go back to the Bronx up 2-0!!!

    Side note: Did you watch, Grenieke during the game? That boy had the squirrels running around in his head!!! He can't pitch in the post season folks!!! His game vs Tampa aside he cannot take the pressure situations. I knew the minute they announced him as the game 1 starter we were in great shape!!!

    Saw Stanton is out. I'm always about looking to the future and with some great young talent on this team, and needing the money to pay them down the road, perhaps trading Stanton in the future might be a smart move.

    I saw Yanks are down 0-1 as I type this.
