Jess is one game away from a trip to London!

Chapman definitely out for tomorrow, probably Kahnle too. A lengthy outing from Paxton would be welcome.

FWIW, Chapman is scary sometimes but the only save he has 'blown' in two months is the one where Didi booted the ball that would have ended it. Tonight was the first ER he gave up since May 9th, a game where Encarnacion hit 3rd for the other team.

Yeah, I definitely trust Chapman more this year. I was wondering if this is the best season of his career. Or how it stacks up.

Kind of hard to judge reliever seasons against each other, 2012 he was 8th in the NL Cy Young voting and 12th in the MVP voting though.

The Yankees put a plaque in Monument Park today in honor of Stonewall’s 50th anniversary. Great job by them.
Yeah, I can't find a picture but they also had rainbow flags on the sides of the bases.

Brad Hand just pulled a Holder from last night, it's much worse when it's your closer and you don't have a 8 run lead.

The last three times the Yankees have hit four home runs, all solo for the entire output of their run production, they won the game 4-3, including tonight (also in 2013, 2005). Given they broke the Rangers' record for consecutive games with a home run tonight, it should seem fitting that the most recent game in which this occurred, 6/25/13, was against Texas. Furthermore, only twice this season has a team opened a game with back to back jacks to open a game this season, both times were the Yankees.

NY is 27-8 in their last 35 at home, winning 11 series and splitting the 2 game one against the Mets.

The four guys who hit HRs in the 2013 game are kind of awesome: Travis Hafner, Brett Gardner (I remember him), the immortal Jayson Nix, and a walkoff by Ichiro!

For those who can't see, it says:

"Gleyber Torres enters the day at .285/.350/.539 (.889 OPS). At his current pace, he would end the season with 37 HR & 93 RBIs. He is batting 8th for the #Yankees tonight."

Which makes me think of two things, first is that Gleyber is likely hitting 9th if Didi is playing over Urshela and second is that Clint Frazier had a .843 OPS and is now in Scranton.

Awesome tweet, that provides an absolutely stunning remark about this lineup, plus how much fun it is nightly to watch them. I feel as if a fish to bait, but no concealed hook underlies how delicious the viewing experience is.

For context, the most home runs in a season hitting in the 8-hole in a given season in 22, by rare bonus baby reject Del Crandall of the 1955 Milwaukee Braves, finishing 17th in the Senior Circuit MVP race for the second consecutive season.

Here’s to Gleyber matching the bottom of the ninth, 3-2, two out, down three runs grand slam Crandall cranked September 11th that season.

Well, the thing is Gleyber probably shouldn’t hit 9th even in this lineup. He should probably be hitting fifth.

I’d have 7, 8, 9 be Voit, Didi, Hicks.

"Giancarlo Stanton's knee is sore and stiff today but "nothing as far as any (IL) moves or anything like that, just seeing how the next couple hours unfold and even the next couple days," Aaron Boone says."

I guess we will keep using this thread until Jess shows up.

Hot again today but not as humid, FWIW.

As many probably know from posts elsewhere on this site, a half century ago yours truly was actually in attendance at the Stonewall Riots both on Friday and Saturday nights of that weekend. The Stonewall itself is tiny, legal occupancy is around 100. Sheridan Square is not all that large, the total participation the first evening was probably barely 2,000 and the following night it may have been double that, many, of course being there both nights. So in total it's unlikely there were more than 5,000 actual people in the riots. Time and AIDS has wrought extreme decimation and I'm probably one of a small handful still around...Now times were a'changing and things would have happened, but the reality is that Stonewall was the spark that actually caught and produced the flame. Now it is clear to me that the most meaninfull thing I will ever have done in my life is be part of a group of somewhat drunk NY kids who were so pissed off about being treated like shit simply for existing that we acted out in public. And now there's a monument to.. me ??...in Yankee Stadium ?? Go figure...

Congratulations, Coup. You are part of history. Funny how something you did at 22 would remain such a meaningful part of your life. Pride is a wonderful thing, gay or otherwise.
