I hope we didn't wake up his bat last night.

ARod showing off his Yankee World Series ring, root, root, rooting for them.  Way to be objective.

ARod says yes.  Hernandez and Ortiz say no.

Can't believe we didn't get a Derek Jeter interview asking him what he thinks judge thinks of him.

As long as they don't give him back to back fastballs in the happy zone they'll be fine

 If Judge's kryptonite is the ball that bends,  then we've got the right guy for him.

High and inside is not the hole in Judge's swing.  I hope Harris goes back to sleep.

I really hope lance makes him look like a fucking joke. Buck might cry on air if that happens

Game 3's opener at least mentioned the Astros. Today's whoever-the-rapper-reading-cuecards-is didn't even say Houston or Astros, let alone talk about them.

Would be more concerned if he hit something off the outer corners.  I was more concerned about the ump not calling strikes at his knees.

News that is sufficiently bad somehow carries its own guarantee of truth.  Only good reports need confirmation.
