Sometimes keeping the game thread OP simple works. I feel strangely encouraged, just off no more than intuition. Should also be said, Houston has never swept the Yankees in franchise history, not that this has any future bearing on today's game.
Basically neutral, and not from one of 28 other teams, but as a matter of nature of the work I'm hoping for down the line, and as root for storylines, the best interest of the sport, history rewritten. Enough research will do that, I've found.Jess, am I mistaken that you’re a Sox fan?

Pulled from Twitter:Yes, but guys like Springer, Altuve and Correa have good numbers against him.
Let’s agree to disagree.
Sanchez seems physically soft, bull strong but flabby in the middle and probably doesn’t do a lot of cardio. If he did, his legs might not be sore two weeks into the season.CC starting Saturday, so Harvey will be up for 2 games, tonight and Friday.
Sanchez is sitting because his calf is a little sore, this gives him two consecutive days with the off day tomorrow.
Cashman very invested in Boone, as you know from the book. Boone aced six hours of testing from the quant department. He took blind stats and matched them to the quants’ projected lineup. Which is fine. But can he run a game? And what kind of leader is he? Can a genial robot win it all?By the way, I will happily sign up for a 22-32 first third of the season if it means Boone gets fired.
Not an everyday player anymore but with Hicks out, and Tauchman a non-factor, Gardy has been playing a lot of CF. Too much. His legs are not what they used to be, imo.I just dropped in to ask if people here feel like Gardner can still play CF. He's conceded a couple extra bases just tonight.
I've only watched four innings of the 2019 Yankees, but he's looked godawful.Not an everyday player anymore but with Hicks out, and Tauchman a non-factor, Gardy has been playing a lot of CF. Too much. His legs are not what they used to be, imo.
They have some serious studs waiting in the minors to help too, Tucker and Whitley are both top 10 overall prospects and Yordan Alvarez is top 50. I was surprised/impressed that the Sox beat them in the ALCS last year, they were the best team on paper.fully healthy Altuve/Correa, Brantley playing well... if the Astros are at 100% into October, incredibly scary lineup.
like, I would bubble wrap Brantley as much as possible in particular
Greenberg grew up in the Bronx. Yanks tried to sign him but Hank chose to attend NYU for a year and then signed with Detroit.Funny that two of these five are best known as Yankees...
