Green gets to make his second appearance as an opener. In his last one, he let up 2 HRs to the Rays and ultimately has had a generally bad year. Junis is a talented righty who is on the long list of pitchers who never put it together for more than a stretch here or there.

Yesterday I mentioned that the Orioles almost had the inverse of our record. Well, the Royals are 17-32 and we are 32-17. So, I prefer to keep that trending in a positive direction for us. Long story short, these are BAD teams. We need these games to win the division and its as simple as that. Last year, we were dreadful vs the bottom of the league. We played down to our competition all the time. Not this year, so far, as we're crushing under 500 teams.

With that sad, I'm about half way through the IL list and will leave Ellsbury for last. If I make it to Ellsbury, I'm going to do a full bio of his career and crow version of an analysis. No need to worry about that today, though, as we're going to be talking about big boy Aaron Judge. The leader of the clubhouse, the man who puts fear into the opposing pitchers, and the easiest player to root on this team since the 90s. Maybe Matsui is up there.

I find the pattern of injuries for Judge a bit disturbing, especially this year’s oblique. How did he do this? Swinging a bat? Last year, I believe it was tonight’s KC pitcher who went up and in on Judge, hitting him in the thumb. Two months on the IL and then around a month to regain his timing. At least that was a baseball injury.
You know what might slow down the Yankees? Getting their regulars back. Most injured players take some time to start hitting again. Look at Hicks right now.
And what’s up with Stanton? Is he hanging out with Ellsbury in Tampa?

The Paxton reporting is misleading, nothing is getting worse, it’s just not completely pain-free.

I can't believe we're already back to Happ's turn, it feels like some of the HRs from the last one haven't landed yet.

If the Yanks were playing .500 ball, no way I would be watching these games. Winning forces me to watch. I am going to start stalking Thairo when Yankees come home.

Lots of strikes, hitting 93, has to be happy not pitching in Yankee Stadium or Camden Yards.

Great video of 1980 fight between Brett and Nettles. Cone is home in KC. He loves this shit as much as we do. Players were still throwing punches in 1980!

NY’s longest HR of the season so far, and Voit’s longest ever by a lot (previous best 430).

Gio makes a diving stab of smash to his left, bounces to his feet, lobs to first. Clete Boyer or Graig Nettles. Take your pick. Gio is that good.

Come on, Luis, finish this off so we can save the rest of the pen for tonight and tomorrow.

The Yankees are the new efficiency for winning. Limit mistakes, pitch well, catch, throw, steal a base, timely hitting.
