3 hits tonight.  That's it.  Makes me very sad.

God, the first game isn't even over yet and already I'm tired of hearing how fantastic the Yankees are.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Seems to be like AJ in that respect.

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.

But the Yankees are really fucking good.

Greinke fine, bullpen terrible, offense worse than terrible.

The Astros need to wake the fuck up or the Yankees are going to ass rape them.

James looked good. Pressly.... not so much. Offense was fucking pathetic.

Hopefully, the BBGs are listening.

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.

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

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 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.

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.
