First pitch gift popup on a pitch nowhere near the zone, we will take it.

What a savior Nestor Cortes has been, a 2.60 ERA now over 79.2 innings. 16 ERs total allowed in 8 starts since the start of August, 47 innings. I would have bet a lot of money that Adam Warren would be up before Nasty Nestor and his 6.72 career ERA, but Warren is still in AAA and Cortes is coming up big every turn through. He was nowhere in my (or anyone's) depth chart coming out of spring, great story. He is still 26 (a few months older than Michael King) and has 2 options, NY has control of him through 2025.

Boone correctly raving about that amazing SB of 3rd by Wade, noting that the pitcher is fast to the plate, the catcher is a great throwing catcher and there was a lefty batter up but Wade stole it anyway and if he doesn’t, Gardner’s flare is caught (that last part was mine, Boone can’t say that).

Win #82 clinches a 29th straight season over .500, every year since 1992.
