Is the ROYMVP usually second in the Yankee's lineup?  Is that a shakeup?

What is weird about these two teams is that they both have 1B hitting in the second half of the order, DHs hitting in the bottom 3rd, RFers hitting 2nd and SSs hitting 4th. 3B is hitting 8th and 9th.

Nice start,  Dallas.

I may get skewered here,  but I enjoy Smoltz as a color analyst especially when he touches on a pitcher's approach.

Meanwhile Tanaka's reward for getting thru 2 innings is to face Bregman in the 8th spot.

Announcers still talking about what a home run haven MMP is.  It's like they haven't watched a game since 2001.

Especially galling after we lost a game because of how ridiculous the RF line is in Fenway.

Joe Buck reduced the number of wangs that I think he fellates by 25% simply by stating that Altuve is his clear vote for MVP.

You'd think Buck would know that once a hitter leaves the dirt area around home plate, he's considered having abandoned his attempt to advance and is automatically out.  But he hates baseball.

Watching pitch counts in the postseason is necessary because it is about effectiveness,

I'd say he's doing ok at 97 pitches...

I've never understood why fox always puts him on these games. Do they not have real baseball people who don't suck?

I'm not saying ignore it, but he still seems pretty effective so don't be blindly adherent to pitch count. The restraint during the season should have been in an effort to keep guys sharp for exactly this situation.

"Bad break for the Yankees."  What a dick.

Defense!!

The national radio pukes sounded extremely let-down when the replay ruled against the Yankers. Fuck 'em.

Agreed.  Would be interesting to see Keuchel's stats fourth time through order or after 90 pitches, though.

He has been great tonight.

Nice start,  Dallas.

I may get skewered here,  but I enjoy Smoltz as a color analyst especially when he touches on a pitcher's approach.

So do I. I also enjoy A.J. Pierzinski’s take because he talks a lot of inside baseball stuff and calls out players when that is required.

Wow, quick hook for Devo.

I didn't like the pitch sequence to Gardner.  Your changeup is your best pitch.  You have to throw it at some point.

He needs to start by covering the sport impartially.  He acted like he was on the Red Sox payroll in the last series.

Came home, read through stuff, some comments. 

I liked the guys who sang the National Anthem.  They were at least as good as the Second Baptist Glee Club. 

Keuchel pitched Wynona as consistently as the big guy could be pitched.  Wynona's not hitting low and away, Keuchel gave him l0w an away 80% of the time.  It was amazing.

Altuve is fast.  That first hit should not have been that first hit, and his run from second to home was as fast.  Correa's no sluggard either.

Marwin's throw was as good live as it was on memorex, McCann's play at the plate was also fine.  It occurred to me that I've seen more outs at home plate the season as I've ever seen.

I wish Giles wasn't quite so exciting.

Altuve had some major league success in both 12 and 13 though so I always felt like he would be at least an ok player. In 2013 I didn't think keuchel belonged on a big league field.

Still miles better than Clay Walker.

I haven't been that jittery at an Astros playoff win since the Bruntlett-Everett  DP 2005 NLCS Game 4.  Every moment was incredibly dramatic.

We were sitting in 104 which I've never before sat at and is an interesting place to watch a game.  Great view of home plate, but every drive to center field, of which there were a few, was a complete mystery.  There is no convenient men's room anywhere near the Crawford Boxes. 

Marwin continues to prove himself as one of the most perfectly rounded baseball players I've ever seen.  Altuve is utterly amazing.  The big inning was an infield hit, timely steal, single, productive out, and another single.  Altuve showed he is one of the best players in the game at bat, in the field, and on the bases.

Keuchel was amazing against his favorite opponent.  I hope it's not necessary but if so game 5 is going to be fascinating to watch.

Last night's was a really high-quality game on both sides, much, much better than that slopfest between the Nats and Cubs that we watched Thursday night. The only gaffe I can recall is Altuve's mistake on the ground ball, and there were several outstanding defensive plays. Great pitching on both sides. It was a delight to watch.

It sure is fun to read these threads the morning after an ALCS win.   

BTW, Marwin's throw home was clocked at 97.4 mph, fastest throw of the year.  And it was absolutely perfect.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Agree.  I could not be in the GZ last night and was excited all morning today to come in and read the blow-by-blow.

Marwin's flops to the ground on these throws home crack me up.  I'd only seen that a couple time before and he's done it twice now in the last few weeks.  Is that normal for him?

It's possible, if not likely, that it was just the broadcast.  Different networks may have different cameras/microphones/noise level limits etc.  Surely the network didn't want to drown out Joe Buck and his hard on for Aaron Judge.

On a side note, I made the mistake of going to ESPN this morning.  Among the headlines about last night's game (paraphrased):

"Judge starting to light it up, only struck out once last night"

"Even Jose Altuve thinks Judge is clearly the MVP."

"If the Yankees win Game 2, they have the Astros right where they want them and it's pretty much a lock.  But even if the Astros win Game 2, they still have their backs against the wall, and it's still almost a lock for the Yankees"

"Yankees are pretty much assured of winning Game 2 because Severino is better than Verlander."

"The Yankees should win Game 2 because Chapman will be available, unlike in Game 1 where that would have made all the difference."

You know, I was much more nervous about the Boston series. I was fairly relaxed last night and able simply to enjoy the game. I think my worry about the Boston series was not wanting a repeat of the KC meltdown from 2015 and somehow having that stamped as the identity of the team.

Well I agree BOS/NY.   But once it was clear that Tanaka was on and runs were gonna be at a premium, and knowing how good their bullpen is, it changed for me.
