Now for something completely different . . .

So, Bregman batting second again and Reddick down the order to get the righty more at bats, but why Gurriel at DH?  McCann out as a lefty.  Gonzalez at first and Gurriel DH because . . .  Maybin in left because . . .  I don't get the defensive changes.

I assume the Yankees will run wild if they get on base.  They have to, don't they?

They didn't really run that much on McCann, but any team should run against two of our catchers.

I don't really have an issue with this batting order. I'm ok with the defensive alignment as well but it would have been fine with me if Maybin was in center, Springer in right and Reddick in left. I was playing around with lineups today and I came up with exactly what Hinch did, though I had Reddick as the DH, with Gonzo in left, Maybin in center and Springer in right. What Hinch has done probably disrupts the outfield defense the least. It keeps Reddick's arm in right where it should be. I guess he could have left Yuli on the field and DH'd Marwin. That would have been a good choice as well.

Wanting to get as many right handed bats as you can in the lineup.  I suppose you could have Marwin at DH and leave Gurriel at 1B, but it's really not that big of a deal. 
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.

My thought exactly HH, and if you ask me, sometimes it looks like Yuli still favors his knee some. If that is the case, putting him at DH gives him a little break.

So far we've covered what ARod would change in the Yankee lineup and what's happened in the Dodgers/Cubs series... I'm assuming we'll eventually get to the other team playing tonight, if there is time.

Commercial break 2.

Watched Joe Maddon throw a temper tantum about the media questioning him using Lackey.

Beltran called out AROD for not Facetiming him anymore.

Plenty of Yankee highlights coming up. Astros nowhere to be found.

Also, they mentioned the Astros offense is all Altuve and Correa... I guess nevermind that .500 hitting Pineapple the Good Guys have.

Not so many baserunners in the first two games, and big innings weren't en vogue, so it was all a little quiet.  If the Astros put some runs up early, they'll have to run.

Its the American League; how hard could it be?

Back from commerical. Showed Boone's walkoff homer against the Red Sox. Papi bitching and moaning.

HEY! Finally a mention of the Astros. Talking about Morton vs. CC. Jesus Christ, CC looks like someone stuck an air hose up his ass 2 years ago and forgot to turn it off.

My left nut would do a better job than Fox, and it looks a lot less creepy than A-Rod.

ARod making excuses for the Yankees faster than he used to inject anabolic steroids in his ass.

It's a sad state of affairs that Keith Hernandez and Big Hurt are both really solid commentators, but ARod and Big Mumbly keep talking over everyone.
