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.

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.

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.

38 minutes in, a feature on Altuve.

This is the first Astros feature so far other than 20 seconds of Beltran shitting on ARod.

That feature was terrible.  I have learned more about that random bloke from the Bronx than I have about Altuve.

He also intimidated that it’s Altuve’s short strike zone that helps because it forces the pitcher to pitch low.   Even I know that Altuve can smoik a pitch at eye level back from whence it came. 

Do these guys even watch a single fucking game before pontificating?

Yeah those were some generous strikes.  Particularly strike 2 to Altuve.

And there's our answer. Nope.

One beer down.  Black bean chili in the pot.  If we lose, you can blame my meatless chili.  I can take the heat (because it’s full of peppers, jalapeños, cumin, chili powder and cayenne.

Bottom 1

Morton Ks Eckstein-Gardner on a nasty breaking ball

He then fans Judge on 3 pitches,  dusting him off a slider

Grigorious bunts the shift for a single, then promptly gets picked the fuck off first after sticking in the dirt sliding back.

End 1
0-0

Is this Smoltz on the broadcast?  Is he going to spend all the games pointing out how well Correa’d hit if he played half his games in Yanqui Stadium?  Sounds like he’s working for Correa’s agent.

Top 2nd

Correa falls behind 2-2, then Ks on a FB.

Yuli flies out to fairly deep left center

Gattis takes 2 balls,  breaks his bat fouling one into the stands,  fouls another straight back,  lays off a 58 footer
Fouls another,  and finally takes ball 4 high.

Marwin steps in, takes off speed low/ away for strike 1, then a nice breaking ball for strike 2,  same pitch for strike 3.

To bottom 2nd
Still scoreless

They can keep saying that this angle will show it, but it didn’t hit him.

Definitely not meat, but tough pitchers pitch through adversity.

Really?  He threw a slider down and off the outside corner that Frazier took a one handed swing at and hit into the short porch in right. 

His worst pitch of the inning was the meatball that Hicks singled on.

Bottom 2

Sanchez flies out to CF on first pitch
 
Bird takes strike 1, then strike 2, swings at strike 3

Castro reaches on a dribbler to 3rd that Bregnan had no chance on

Hicks falls behind 1-2, lays off a low FB, reaches on a bloop to left center, Castro stops at 2nd

Frazier up with 2 on, takes a strike for ball 1, same pitch for strike 2, then reaches out and hits a 3 run fly ball to RF. 

No mention of 'any other ball park '

Headley behind 0-2 takes a breaking ball in the dirt,  prompting a video review says no hbp, then flies out to right

End 2
Astros 0
Yankees 3

Was it a hanger? No. But it was a slider that was low away and a little spinny instead of diving off the plate. Yup. This joke of a ballpark gives up cheap fuck home runs.

The point is you put him away. You do not give up a hard hit ball.

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.

Top 3

Reddick falls behind 0-2, lays off a tough breaker,  then another, finally lines out to 2b

Maybin takes ball 1 low for strike 1, then bounces out up the middle 4-3

Springer up 2-0, takes ball 3, takng all the way for strike 1, walks on 5 pitches

Bregman takes a curve on the outside for legit strike,  then takes high,  turns on one nicely for a single Doreen LF line,  Springer to 3rd

Altuve takes a curve high/ outside,  then another further off the plate, CC stays away with ball 3 outside,  Altuve chops one barely foul short of 3rd, then walks to load em up.

Correa digs in,  takes a juicy FB for strike 1, pops out to short to end the rally.

Middle 3
Astros 0
Yankees 3

How was the lasagna?

Yummy. Homemade spinach noodles, Bolognese ragu, bechamel sauce, parmesan. It's an all-afternoon undertaking, but dads love their daughters.

Bottom 3

Eckstein-Gardner flies out to left

Judge gets to a full count,  then takes STRIKE 3 for ball 4

Gregorious grounds sharply to Altuve,  who makes a throw from his knees that pulls Marwin of the bag -so says 1B ump- prompting a challenge that overturns the call.  Judge to 2nd. 1 out.

Sanchez falls behind 0-2, grounds out 5-3

End 3
Astros 0
Yankees 3

Springer or Reddick makes that play daily, but I would have said it was a nice play for Springer or Reddick.

That said, to hell with him.

Top 4

Yuli flies out to the freaking wall in right

Gattis flies out less noisily

Marwin grounds out 6-3.

Freaking nothing out of that other than Judge replays.

Middle 4
Astros 0

A chance to get right back into this one after giving up a big inning.  You won't get many chances like that.
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.

Likely will get runs 1 at a time vs. the bully, so that was a chance to put up a big number that we likely won’t see again.

You and me both.  I rewound it, and I wonder if he thought the dirt was the foul line and he was about to hit the fence?  Other than that, I have no idea.  Complete fuckup.

Do they really think the Astros are scared of Frazier?  I don't think so.  But, maybe the Astros are scared of all the Yankees.

But it would be great if Morton could get out of this inning.

Morton definitely pitched around Frasier. Depressing that a number 8 hitter has to be pitched around.

If I remember correctly, Frazier was 7-for-18 with 3 homers against Morton *before* he hit that last homer. They ought to at least be a little wary.

No chance with the shift.

This is the difference between Morton and Verlander, and it is not their stuff.

He is earnest and articulate and seems like a great person, but every interview he gives is full of self doubt.

Having to get five outs this inning didn't help him either.

The Headley ball was not an out. They were in the shift.

Charlie had good stuff tonight with a lot of shitty luck.

Well, the flip is that he gave up a three run homer and then hit a batter on an 0-1 to load the bases for judge. I get they didn't always hit the ball on the screws but results matter.

Still should have been an out.  Moving fielder's out of the way doesn't mean that Morton didn't make a pitch that should have been an out.

Bottom 4

Bird works the count full,  bounces a ground rule double into the stands in left that Maybin apparently lost (?)

Castro falls behind 0-2, evens the count,  then grounds out to Bregman.  Runner stays at 2nd.



Hicks hacks/ misses strike 1, takes another high,  another low,  2-1 count,  bounces one foul to first,  takes low for ball 3, fouls off a FB (Gattis asked for it high,  it was down the pipe), then flies out deep to right,  advancing the runner to 3rd.

Frazier takes an off speed pitch low,  takes ball 2 low/away, fouls off the next pitch,  takes low for ball 3, then takes an inside FB to walk.

Headley up, takes ball 1 high,  fouls off a slider,  lays off the next one inside,  fends off a FB , checks his swing dor a full count,  then hits a single than barely leaves the infield to bring a run in.

Eckstein-Gardner takes a breaking ball of the knee to load the bases

Judge up,  as AJ gets Morton. Harris in.

Judge up, Harris bounces ball 1 over Gattis,  run scores,  deftly negating the Judge grand slam opportunity that would have ended the postseason immediately; instead he has to settle for a measly 3 run shot to left field.

Gregarious  (not bothering to correct autocorrect)  gets to a full count hits a ball sharply off Marwin,  deftly fielded/flipped by Altuve to end the inning 3-4-1.

And now I think I'll vomit.

End 4
Astros 0
Yankees 8

Kudos to you for keeping track of that but Morton only pitched 3.2 innings
And only gets credit for 7 runs.

I'd agree with you but I was in Toronto and so the mojo may not work tonight because I'm in Houston.

I was driving to Tampa, and today I'm in Sugar Land, so I'm hoping geolocation has nothing to do with it.

Clearly there is no pitch that is too high to be a strike.

Yes,  yes.  Inadvertently robbed Harris of his run allowed that inning.

The Astros offense is the other half of the blame so far. Sabathia is throwing PUSS and the Astros are not doing shit against him.

This was exactly what you didn't want to have happen.
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.

The regular season Altuve took that swing.

I’d just as soon go quietly and get them tomorrow. I am disappointed in Morton. He had great stuff but could not put hitters away.

Harris has not recovered from the shoulder woes. His velocity has not returned.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
