The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Goons on Fox claiming this should be a Yankee win because they're the team that doesn't have any distractions...like needing to play well.

Hard to argue with that logic.

Goons on the PBP and Color:

This game is all about Luis Severino and what a magical season he's had.

The fact that they want to play well.  Apparently this stage appears too big for Verlander and the Astros and they might not be able to deal with it.  Essentially this is a MUST win for the Astros, so the Yankees can play free and lose, as they're right where they want to be.

Distractions like being the far better team?

At least we won't have to waste any time flipping back and forth between this game and the UT-OU game.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

So basically we should all just write thank you notes to NY for allowing us to escort them to the WS?

I don’t know if I hate A-Rod more as a player or analyst.  His overly-whitened teeth are distracting to say the least.

Speaking of teeth, Judge has too many (Cushingitis).

Nice sliders from JV.

What a tremendous at bat...probably the key to the game, and apparently that at bat ruined Verlander.

I love how his at-bat meant that all Yankees were going to have long battles all afternoon.  5 pitches later, inning over.

14 pitch inning.

Come on offense.  Let's square up on a few.
