And actually the defensive metrics seem to really hate Voit, I was a bit surprised.
Gleyber gets both records with one swing.
Yanks look ready for the playoffs. And dangerous.
This announcer is babbling like a fool.
Who is it? (Not Cone)
Pierzynski, absolute idiot.
Surprised BOS is giving NY another look at Wright, although NY only has a few starters left in.
Yankees have their groove back
Throw that idiot out
That could've hit him in the face on the bounce.
WTF is wrong with people these days?
And the announcers are laughing like morons
Good arm by the fan. Dombrowski just signed him up and waived Joe Kelly.
I don't think Gray can make the wild card roster, but he is making a bit of a case to make the ALDS roster if they get there.
Kahnle simply cannot be trusted these days
The collapse of Kahnle this season is mystifying.
It's not that mystifying, they pushed him hard last postseason and then Boone used him for 48 pitches on April 6.
Kahnle has been squeezed a bit all inning too.
Not a good inning by Tommy, Holder will get the 9th.
It’s the fucking 9th with 2 outs and you’re down by 6. Why are you changing pitchers Alex?
I can't stick around for the last half inning
AJ the moron saying the Red Sox has this wrapped up in April
Yeah, I caught that too. Lazy hyperbole does not translate well when you are announcing baseball games.
In case you have not noticed, aggressive stupidity is currently quite successful in sports broadcasting and politics
Here is your new old closer.
The slider makes Chapman a bit more difficult.
The lack of 100+ makes him a bit more easy.
most of the portents are better but we are not handling 9th innings well
We disagree here. I think if he mixes more sliders in, the 97 looks like 100.
Cone just summed up the Yankees' bullpen. Three power guys at end who can lose the strike zone.
Two strikeouts, both on sliders. And one fastball at 100.
Got lucky with that strike zone though.
Either way, the Sox have way bigger problems than the Yankees do. There isn’t a pitcher on their roster besides Sally and Kimberly anyone is worried about.
They could be similar to the 2001 Mariners. Not built for the playoffs. Or, more to the point, not built to face a loaded playoff field. Getting by both the Yankees/A's and Astros is asking a lot.
100 wins is nice, absolutely nothing to play for tomorrow except the season series between these teams, currently tied at 9.
They need a couple things to go right that could carry them through the As/Yanks and Houston. But Houston is still the team to beat. Verlander is the best postseason pitcher on any team. Kluber is back to being Kluber. Without a full strength Sale, they’re done. Without Happ or Severino keeping those games competitive, we’re done too.
Also, we need to prove we can win away postseason games
Isn't getting by 2 of the Yankees/A's, Astros, Indians, and Sox asking a lot of any team?
100 wins is a great accomplishment. Credit to Boston for making 100 wins seem so frustrating. We did a lot of complaining on Yankee game threads, myself included, and it was always Jon who would remind us this was a 100-win team we were bitching about.
Having the whole lineup healthy makes me feel better. Gardner coming off the bench could be a real asset in a tight game. He is committed to helping this team "in any way he can."
Yes. It's a loaded playoff field for everyone.
Unrelated, Is the NL compelling at all? We watch so much AL, I have no idea.
Great point, Crow. The next step for this bunch is winning playoff games on the road.
It's competitive but not nearly as compelling as the AL. Atlanta, Colorado, and Milwaukee are in the playoffs.
There is a lot more pressure on the Sox to win than any other team in the postseason besides maybe LAD. Shorter window, best record, favorites, two MVP candidates, CY young winner (probably), first year manager getting lots of praise...
The ALCS is the World Series IMO.
Game 5 of the ALDS last year against the best team in baseball and Cy Young winner wasn’t enough?
I think he means the 1-6 record.
Road teams were collectively 2-15 in the AL playoffs last year, HOU was 1-4 and the other teams were 0-5 combined.
yep and being that we will be on the road more than our opponents, it’s important we turn that around. Ironically, our inability to muster any semblance of an offense in Houston last year scares me the most. Suppose we have a handful of obstacles to get through first, though.
I think the biggest pressure the Red Sox will be facing is whether Sale is sitting 95-96 or 91-92
If he’s showing to be healthy the pressure will be squarely on the Red Sox opponent
You don’t actually believe that, right? Sure, Sale makes the Sox as good as any team out there. But he also just gives the Sox what most other playoff teams have in a shutdown starter. It’s the playoffs, the regular season doesn’t mean shit. Ask Clayton Kershaw.
Sale needs more than velocity, he needs to get deep into the game. The last time he threw more than five innings was July 27, the last time he went more than seven was June 8.
Coin flip game first, OAK is tough.
Andujar, Didi and McCutchen sit, other six regulars in there:
First time two 100 win teams have met in the regular season since 1909, and what’s crazy is Coup was at that game.
And he was bitching because the hot dogs were undercooked.
You can’t really undercook a hotdog, can you? My relatives in Italy eat them “raw” with mayonnaise.
Andujar replaces Stanton at DH, no injury, just a day off.
To each their own, but ew and ew.
My Dad was born in 1906 so that would make us both off-the-charts biologically precocious....
