It doesn't seem possible but I believe by the end of this series I will hate Brett Gardner even more than I already do.

Impossible for me, I hit saturation point a few years back.  Probably from watching too many TB-Yanks games.

pop-up can o' corn for the first out to right center, Springer gloves it.
Judge hits the first pitch to deep center, Springer tracks in down on the track.
22 yr old (who is 'ridiculously' talented according to Buck), strikes out.

after 1/2 inning, Astros 0, Yanks 0

I'm going to say this just this one last time, for this post season, anyway. You guys do this to yourselves. For all of you in Nexas, turn on the radio. For all of you outside of Nexas, drop $10 on MLB At Bat or whatever the app is. Your lives will improve immeasurably. In my own case, my blood pressure is down to about 240/180, so that is something of a triumph.

Encarcion , ball slow lazy fly to Tucker in right.   1 out

Ridiculous "Tale of the Tape'

Stanton, ball, swinging strike, hit to the deep hole at short, Correa lays out to prevent it going to the outfield but can't throw him out.  Man on 1st.

Gardner, ball, high curve for a strike, curve outside, strike, ball down, liner to Yuli at first who calmly steps on the bag for a double play.

3 outs.

That ball was taylor made for hitting through the right side, right on the lower outside corner. That would have been first and third with one out for Springer. Instead, he tries to pull it and grounds weakly into the DP.

If you are talking about a couple of pitches at the bottom of the zone, you are correct.

George agrees

George should start swinging at strikes instead of making fucking pouty faces then chasing out of the zone.

George should start swinging at strikes instead of making fucking pouty faces then chasing out of the zone.

Chicks dig the pouty face.

Bottom 4 - top of the order

Springer - Strike 1, ball 1 high and tight, strike 2 on the bottom of the zone, ball 2 way outside, ball 3 down and out, strike 3 swinging. 1 out
Brantley - strike 1 on the outside, foul (strike 2),  ball 1 high, foul, fly ball to Stanton in left.. 2 outs
Altuve - strike 1 swinging on the outside edge, down and out for ball 1, ball 2 low, ball 3 down and out, foul (strike 2),  foul, strike swinging on the outside.. 3 outs.

After 4, Astros 0, Yanks 1

Seems they need to maybe spit on those third strike pitches though Tananka is throwing some great stuff on the outside..

The pitches that struck out Springer and Altuve were balls out of his hand.  Easy for me to say, but it’s their job to recognize that.

Upon reflection, I am not surprised Greinke's zone is a bit less consistent than Tanaka's. He changes speed more and throws weirder pitches. Tanaka's kind of a basic bitch.

I'm feeling pessimistic about the team's offense tonight. I knew that when the count on Altuve went to 3-2 he'd strike out on a ball off the plate.

Yet for some reason I'm optimistic about Tucker tonight.

With the way Tanaka pitches, the Astro’ hitters need to think backwards and do a better job of spitting on Tanaka’s junk out of the strike zone.  He’s not going to throw them many fastballs.

They fucked up Pearl Harbor.  On a related note, Hanks and Spielberg are doing another WWII series, this one's about the Allied air war over Germany.

So I got Germans and Pearl Harbor into this same post, which has to be some sort of omen.

Bregman, ball 1, strike 1 fouled at the plate, strike 2 foul, foul, ball 2 high, ball 3 down, ball 4 outside for the WALK!
Alvarez, ball low called a strike 1.    Fly ball to right.. Judge snags and throws a liner to 1st to get Bregman trying desperately to get back to the bag.   2 outs.
Gurriel, strike 1,  fly ball to Judge on the track... 3 outs

After 5, Astros 0, Yanks 1

You know, he’s a really underrated fielder. NO ONE talks about it. He made a BRILLIANT play where he caught a line drive hit right at him and the lobbed it to first to double off a player who was still 20 feet from the bag.

You’re spoiling his judge HR celebration: He’s going to drop on his knees and head bob.

Greinke should have listened to Smoltz. No breaking ball to Stanton on 3-2 is a head scratcher.

Listening on the radio. Sounds like it's all Yankee fans there.
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 of 7.   Ryan Pressley pitches to

Sanchez - ball 1, ball 2, strike 1 swinging, strike 2 at the top of the zone, foul, grounds to Bregman.. 5 -3.  1 out
Urshella - ball 1 up, curve fouled for strike 1, strike 2 foul tip, strike 3 swinging!   Have a seat meat!   2 out.
Gregorius - curve smacked to right field past Yuri.. Tucker gets to it and holds him to a single.
Lameheiu - ball down, base hit to right.. men on 1st and 2nd..
Judge - ball down, base hit to right.. Tucker gets it in to hold Gregarious at 3rd..
Torres - wow.. what a pitch called a ball.    strike 1 on the inside corner..  strike 2 swinging, wow.. ball 2 on the outside black,    ball 3 barely down, flicked to short center.. 2 runs score...   great piece of hitting.. 
Pressley crapped the bed so it's James on the bump to pitch to
Encarcion - ball 1, strike 1 swinging at 97, strike 2 swinging, strike 3 swinging.   3 outs.

at the stretch, Astros 0, Yanks 5.

My hunch is we reverse last year's ALCS this year.

Tanaka is giving me Greg Maddux flashbacks.

No. Tanaka is not good. He's totally hittable if you are willing to sit back on his slop. Instead the Astros tried to pull everything and got destroyed.

Tanaka throws a wide variety of junk.  To beat him, you have to think backwards and spit on his pitches out of the zone.  The Astros did neither.

Tanaka has a reliable capacity to get other teams to not destroy him, but he is not good.

Bregman was about by a whole step. How can the ump miss 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.

Bottom 7.  Ottavino takes over for Tananka.. pitches to

Springer - strike 1 on the outside,  fly ball to Gardner in center on the track.. 1 out.
Brantley - ball 1 high and outside, strike 1, strike 2,  opposite field single to left..   this starts it..
Altuve - slider gets him to swing and miss for strike 1, ball 1 (was a strike but hey.. bout time),   hit up the middle and the two infielders watch it go into center allowing Brantley get to 3rd.
Bregman - grounds into a 6 -4 -3...   CRAP!

After 7,  Astros 0, Yanks 5

I figured there was a good chance they would lose this game, but I thought they would at least make it interesting. I'm really concerned that the offense is going to take the rest of the month off. They've had one good inning in six postseason games.

3 over 6 innings is a solid day against their offense.

But when your bats are in the deep freeze, a shutout is the only thing that works.

100% this.

This team's offense is supposed to be historic. Instead they're historically embarrassing in the playoffs.

Top 8, James pitches to

Stanton - quickly 0-2,  This ump is nothing if inconsistent.. ball 1 on the outside black..  there we go.  Strike 3.   1 out
Gardner - inside ball 1, ball 2 inside and down, grounds to Altuve.. 4-3.. 2 out.
Sanchez - breaking ball high, ball 1, fastball high ball 2, strike 1 called at the top of the zone,  98 down the pipe strike 2,  99 on the outside black gets him swinging!   3 outs.

This James kid is pretty good..

Astros 0, Yanks 5

A couple things -

1.  We are better when we are aggressive (any pitch, any count type of readiness)
2.  We need to go to opposite field better (Brantley drove one right at Stanton) and Bregs once but the Chirinos DP is stupid
3.  Who the fuck cares about pitch count when it comes to their starting pitchers --- their strength is their bullpen (claimed to be)
      So lets get after them on mistakes
4.  Would not hurt to get on base more (shit I'd take a bunt from Chirinos or a strike out there; anything but weak sis to 3rd for 2)
     Hit em where they aint.

All they have to do is win every game Verlander and Cole start. No big deal, right?

Several Yankees have been shown on camera looking inside their caps at notes or whatever, and Judge blocked a camera from seeing what he and two coaches were looking at in the dugout. To be clear, I don’t care in the slightest and don’t think anything untoward is occurring, but, if it were the Astros, there would be an octo-box panel of former Yankees and Red Sox discussing the ethics of the situation.

I might need to switch over to the radio feed.

Gurriel - ball 1 outside,  way outside.. ball 2, ball 3 high..   get-me-over fastball for strike 1, not even close.. walk..
Correa - ball 1 down and in,  foul for strike 1,  foul for strike 2, ball 2 down, foul, foul, strike 3 swinging at 95 on the outer half.   2 out

Diaz really doesn’t seem like an ace pinch hitter in a small sample size. Then again, a chopper to short is about an average offensive for the Astros tonight.

"Incredible defensive play."

You mean the one where he went 6 steps to his right and caught a line drive? And then tossed it back into the infield to double off a guy who stumbled and slipped while turning around? Yeah, that was almost like Roberto Clemente.

Ordinarily I'd be optimistic about tomorrow with Verlander on the mound, but since we're in an American League park and he won't be batting, I'm not sure where the runs will come from.

1st game - supposed to be energy, excitement and possibility.

This is/was the complete fucking opposite --- playing dead ain't a strategy

No confidence that tomorrow will be anything different --- all it takes is one of their meat heads to go the other way off Verlander to right field and we are back in the same type of game.  We need to get the fucking lead and hold it from the get go.

Not sure where runs are gonna come from.

Yep. I think they follow his lead. They know how good they are and they know that baseball is hard, they take it seriously and they keep their eyes on the prize. They'll be back tomorrow. I think we win the next two.

It doesn't seem possible but I believe by the end of this series I will hate Brett Gardner even more than I already do.

So, how did this prediction turn out?

The home run ball bounced off the giant wall and back on to the field. Yankees leftfielder Brett Gardner picked it up. He saw Houston bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte walking past him toward the pile of Astros gathering at home plate.

“Here,” Gardner said, handing him the ball. “Take this. You guys are a great team. Now go win the World Series. Represent the American League well.”

Said Bracamonte, “It was so classy. And Aaron Judge gave me a hug and said the same thing. I have so much respect for those guys.”

Bracamonte later gave the ball to an MLB authenticator.

Yeah, didn't pan out. Pitchers just did too good of a job keeping him off the bases. And then the Bracamonte anecdote, like you said...

I wish you didn't post this, it is nearly impossible to berate the guy after reading the article.

I liked the fact that he did pretty much fuck all with the bat for the v whole series.  It was also fun watching him blame the HP ump for him swinging and missing a lot.

The home run ball bounced off the giant wall and back on to the field. Yankees leftfielder Brett Gardner picked it up. He saw Houston bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte walking past him toward the pile of Astros gathering at home plate.

“Here,” Gardner said, handing him the ball. “Take this. You guys are a great team. Now go win the World Series. Represent the American League well.”

Said Bracamonte, “It was so classy. And Aaron Judge gave me a hug and said the same thing. I have so much respect for those guys.”

Bracamonte later gave the ball to an MLB authenticator.


Good Verducci article

I was going to link the Verducci article here for Knox but decided to post it on the TZ instead. Classy move by Gardner.

Outfield View of Jose Altuve's 2019 ALCS Winning Walk-off Homerun

This might be my favorite thing so far.

Gregorious knew it was gone off the bat (unlike me). Urshela went to cover second but knew it was gone after about a step and a half.

Even from that far out, the look of "What the fucking fuck just happened?" is obvious on Chapman's face.

Brocamonte presented it to the Authenticator like he was presenting a holy relic to the pope. That was fucking great.

Torres covering second? Agreed (!) re Bracamonte’s presentation.

The OFers were very deep in a no doubles defense so anything Altuve hit had to be hard, high, and off the wall or over it to score Springer. When he hit it, my first thought was “that’s out,” then I saw it was headed toward the bullpen well. I was not certain till it hit the wall, and I hoped Springer was sprinting.

I never did figure out how far along Springer was and what would have happened if the ball had bounced off the wall still in play. Did anybody else see where Springer was?

ETA: Never mind, I just watched that outfield video. Springer knew it was out  almost immediately and started jogging long before he got to 2nd. And Torres headed to cover 2nd and then just kept jogging to the dugout; that was fun to see.

Torres, not Urshella.

Also of note, Springer was fucking FLYING, but was looking right at it, so he hit second base with his hands up in the air and started to trot.

That is awesome!  Work trip at a Hampton Inn watching on a phone.  As a work traveler I can relate.  All my coworkers get on me for always haveing an Astros koozie everywhere I go.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.
