Have to keep the pedal to metal to remain even with the Astros, who BTW have been obliterating everyone in their path of late.

Yep. Astros and Dodgers aren't taking their foot off the gas. I'm guessing all of the top teams will start to limit some starts to 5ip soon and provide more rest to position players going into the last week. I could see a bunch of players getting the final weekend off.

Cortes Jr. is starting, DET is the worst hitting team in the AL but Cortes has a 6.75 ERA since the start of August, so color me nervous.

He's bad, he's bad, you know it.

I just saw someone call him Edwin 'Transaction' Jackson, which I had not seen before and which is hilarious.

This team leaves me speechless. These guys just play the game the right way. I would like to bottle whatever the formula is for Next Man Up. The Patriots popularized it but the Yanks have taken teamwork and accountability to a new level in 2019.

Nestor starting to suck as expected, his offseason 40 man spot may be in question at this point too.

I know this is petty, but Flaherty and Singleton are probably my least favorite YES broadcasting team. Mostly because of Flaherty. I don't know why, but he irritates me.

They need to get Ruocco in the booth more.

Edit: might just be Flaherty's voice.

They're so boring, separately but even worse together.

NY's first three AA pitchers tonight (Montgomery, Betances, Tarpley) definitely better than their first three MLB pitchers (Cortes, Cessa, Gearrin).

the result is pretty much incidental tonight
This isn't true, they would really like to finish ahead of HOU and Ottavino is now in in the 7th. I'm sure no one expected it would take that many shitty pitchers to get through 6, but here we are.

I mean, it's certainly not Boone's fault that all of Nestor, Cessa, Gearrin and Loaisiga sucked and even with that they gave Ottavino a one run lead and he gave it back.

NY still has Kahnle and Chapman and Britton only threw 9 pitches there, but it would sure be nice to score and give it to Aroldis here.
