    This qualifies as a big game. The whole baseball world is watching. It must piss the world champion Astros off that their series with Cleveland is just an appetizer served in the early afternoon, a few hours before the main event.
    Yankee Stadium will be crazy tonight, just like it was last autumn when the Yankees played Cleveland and then Houston, falling one victory short of the World Series. New York has already broken through on the road this year and now just has to hold serve at home to advance to the LCS.
    Boston, of course, has other ideas. Its key hitters at the top of the order have been quiet so far, except for the first inning of Game 1. Luis Severino will come out throwing smoke in the first inning as he did against Oakland last Wednesday night. When did the first inning become so important?
    New York's spotty offense has been propelled by the home run bats of Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. Seems like Judge has been on base every time up. His OPS through three games in October is 2.060. He is 5-for-9 with a walk and two homers against Boston.
    The Yankees have to solve the power cutter of Nathan Eovaldi, who has had their number this season. This is a very big stage for the former Yankee. October has created some unlikely heroes over the past 115 years. Eovaldi has a chance to write his own ticket into Boston folklore tonight.
    First pitch is around 7:40 p.m.

    Some of you know that I run a record label and last Wednesday there was an Australian musician in town I really needed/wanted to see. But with the conflict of the wild card game, I managed to schedule a second show for him so I could stay home and watch the do-or-die game. Unfortunately that show is tonight (this wasn't a case of not thinking ahead but of it being the only potential option) and so I will likely miss this entire game live. I was bummed about that initially but also it will be a bit of a relief to follow a game on my phone and not live or die on every pitch.

    TL/DR: I won't be around tonight so play nicely and make sure NY takes care of business, thanks.

    I will only cuss at other posters when they say bad things about Voit, Judge, Sanchez, G-Rod (okay that’s fine), or Didi. And Andujar or Hicks or Gardner.

    According to SOSH rules, the word MF is only usable by Red Sox fans as a multi-purpose adjective to describe the New York Yankees baseball franchise, their stadium, their fans, and the entire city.

    Yankee fans on SOSH are limited to all the other curse words, although we understand that cursing is a sign of limited vocabulary.

    I hope this is AC/DC level Aussie music for you to miss the Bronx HR derby.

    Heh, that is not exactly the area of music I work in, but this guy has never been here before as far as I know, plus I had to go to see the other people on this bill anyway.

    I have a family conflict on Tuesday night. Meeting my oldest brother up in Maine. He's a baseball fan so we will have the game on in the background. Won't be posting on SOSH. That kind of weirdness is hard to explain to family.

    As you know Jon I am a big music fan and I had a show that I had planned to attend on Saturday in NYC and I did go and I am SO glad I went as the game was awful (good for you and your Yankee fan brethren) and the show for me was in the top 2-3 that I've attended over the past year!

    Fuck, no Hicks still. Brett is a tough AB too, but really would like Hicks back.

    NY have played seven postseason games at home since last season:

    NY 8, MIN 4
    NY 1, CLE 0
    NY 7, CLE 3
    NY 8, HOU 1
    NY 6, HOU 4
    NY 5, HOU 0
    NY 7, OAK 2

    That is 42-14 combined.

    Hicks is "available off the bench and more of an option than he was in game 2", according to Boone.

    I'd rather have a 100 percent Gardner than an 80 percent Hicks running down balls in CF.

    He is, but I don't deny Hicks is better in most situations now...Brett is going to do everything he can to leave it all on the field as his days in pinstripes dwindle down to a precious few...

    Cora says no Sale in game 4, it will be Porcello against CC no matter what which I think is the right call for both teams as I said yesterday.

    Going to Holt and Devers seems more an act of desperation than playoff aggressiveness. We shall see.

    I think it's smart, Kinsler and Nunez weren't hitting and Devers can't be worse defensively than Nunez.

    I'm more nervous about tonight then the first two games. I could see Eovaldi shutting us down and Severino struggling with his command.

    Totally. The advantage here is homefield, not SP. Though, I think Eovaldi is equally likely to blow up.

    If we are going anywhere this post season, we finally have to start showing some power against good pitching.

    The Indians were awful. Trevor Bauer in a relief role was abysmal. Andrew Miller no longer dominant. And the offense predictably disappeared against Houston's pitching staff.

    Love the home crowd. These outs are louder than anything that happened in Fenway for 2 games.

    Severino made me extraordinarily nervous that inning, but three outs and no runs is three outs and no runs. I'll take it.

    I have to assume that the Yankee strategy, aside from just straight up scoring, is to raise Eovaldi's pitch count and get to the son shaky pen.

    Good ABs so far. His stuff is tough to hit but they're seeing it well.

    Well, other than Voit those were good at bats. Hopefully Severino settles down now.

    It doesn't feel like Severino has anything tonight. I'm praying for four innings out of him.
