ALCS Game 2: Yankees @ Astros Oct 14, 2017

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

He’s a fly-ball pitcher in a bandbox.  Dead man walking.  I don’t know why I’m even watching...or why they’re even bothering to play.

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.

There's nothing that should worry this team like a hard-throwing right-hander.

If Gardener ruined Verlander, Altuve just murdered Severino.

Altuve is unreal.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

I’m glad Severino has no distractions [throws to 1B], eh?  Oh.

Almost good enough to be a Yankee.

Two quick out, but now the pitcher in a jam.  This offense is special.

 Well that was disappointing. 

That ball would have had to been hit significantly harder to be called a dribbler.

Not even sure it qualified as a nubber.
