Jesus Christ, I said before the AB ‘Hicks with 2 down in the 9th...’ Tampa flashed before my eyes but I thought that was fantasy shit. Wow.

I'd love to hear the thinking by Rogers there. Groove a fastball to Hicks right after nibbling around a lefty Tauchman with nobody on. I mean is Tauchmann someone you show a lot of respect to in that spot?

I swear YES does the same music psych trick The Price is Right used to run. If a game was lost or the Yankees trail, the music is played a touch slower. If the Yankees are winning or Price is Right had someone win a game, the music is sped up a little.

I’m honestly feeling extras. God no, my heart can’t take that after the double cheeseburger I had tonight.

Last Yankees win giving up 11+, non-London mess? 14-11 over Baltimore, 4/28/17. Only 45 such games thus far in franchise history.

Hot mics on the Twins tonight, eh?

Tauchman is a God. He hadn’t done anything wrong in two weeks. But yeah, you gotta pitch to him.

This noise injection is so fucking irritating. Insanely loud music gets blasted every ball.
The visuals too, absolutely insufferable. I like the Twins' personnel, but this place needs to be demolished.

This might be Chapman's worst outing as a Yankee and there is no excuse for why he is still pitching.

It was absolutely clear after one batter that he had nothing, he's not even going up like usual as he throws more pitches.

We're gonna find out after the game that Aroldis had to take a dump and didn't want to shit his pants.

Boone would rather lose tonight than show a lack of confidence in Chapman. I hope he knows what he is doing and his long game is on point.

It was clear after one batter (if not before) that he had nothing, Ottavino or Green has to get up fast then. Terrible.

I think it just happened too quickly for his list of possibilities.

Also basically every time he pitches, he adds velocity as he goes, hard for Boone or anyone to anticipate his not just being able to get loose, but also obvious how it would end.

An out! Alive temporarily.

Did Chapman not fully warm up again? If so, need to have a legit talk with him about this, absolutely no reason this should still be happening.
