I'm a bit stunned by the Dombrowski news. Less than a year after winning a title and he's fired. Seems awfully fickle to me.

Oh no, between this and Boone's face when he talked about it after the game, I think he might have an Achilles tear, fuck fuck fuck.

"Mike Tauchman said it felt like he was kicked in the left calf when it tightened up on him tonight. Heading up to New York tomorrow for an MRI."

That is horrible news.

From a surplus of outfielders to possibly having a very cold Maybin with bad wrist starting. I guess Frazier will probably be the fourth OF. What a mess.

Well, Stanton can’t be too far away, and it’s not ideal but they do have too many infielders and Urshela looked good in his few emergency innings in LF earlier in the season.

I think it's funny that in maybe 3 months we have gone from most of Yankee-dom being indignant about NY promoting Tauchman over Frazier to seemingly no one thinking Clint is a passable substitute for MT.

It all happened on one June night in Fenway when Clint butchered three plays. Management sent him to Scranton. We fell in love with Tauchman during July.

I love Clint's energy and he has a beautiful swing. However, his media management skills are a huge turnoff. There was no single event that pushed me away from him but just constant little things. Last week or the week before he made a pretty nice sliding catch and instead of letting it speak for itself, he posted to twitter "this guy can't field." Little things like that will bury him.

Guys like Frazier used to be known as “flakes.” Phil Linz, Bouton, etc. Flakes find ways to set themselves apart from the team. That rarely works out well, especially on a tight team like the 2019 Yankees. We should never forget that Clint knocked in over 40 runs for this team when it was initially short handed. He had a lot of big hits. Seems like his teammates accept him fairly well, which is so typical of this group.

Grade 2 calf strain for Tauchman, out 6-8 weeks. So at least he'll be ok for next year but his year is almost certainly done. Come on down, Giancarlo!!

I've pretty much accepted that this is just the way things are going to be, all the way to the end of the season. I had hoped that injury luck would balance out a little and that the last month or so would be relatively healthy for the team, with most guys coming back and all.

Ah well. It makes me appreciate this team even more.

Listening to NESN.
Remy starts talking about Torres playing both second and short while hitting 35-plus homers. How rare is that?
Eck: “Superstar.”
Mookie flies out to the CF wall. O’Brien got a little too excited with his call but Remy brought him down to earth: “First inning, got to see how the ball is carrying.”
A pleasant listen, these three.

Eck is the anti-Arod, calm, actually quite intelligent and fair, he's had some blowback from NESN for being 'too critical' of some Sox.
O'Brien is fine and ended the true excesses of schtick Remy & his former partner had fallen into over the years.
My problem is Remy, now in his 3rd battle with cancer, but mostly his enabling and insane support/defense of the monster kid he raised who, without his support, would never have been free to ultimately slaughter his exwife....

Voit hops after connecting but this time the ball stays in the park, a double high off the CF wall. Second and third for Gardner. Weak grounder to third and Devers guns down EE at home.

NY doesn't have Green or probably Ottavino today, but they should have everyone else.

The Astros have six home runs in the first two innings against the A's and Fiers (now out), 10-0 after 2.

Hope Clint gets some starts before Stanton is back, Maybin's pixie dust seems to have worn off.

Judge drills a double up the gap that Jackie cuts off before it rolls to the wall. DJ to third for Gleyber, who hits a SF to left. Such an efficient team.

"Judge slides into second with a standup double"

When you hit the ball so hard that you confuse the announcers... :)

Top of the ninth. Eck and Remy are being probed about celebrities they have met. Eck talking about meeting the Celtics after a game when they were naked. He found it awkward. Meanwhile, Yanks load the bases. Cora is calling for yet another reliever. It’s 5-0 now. Yanks will win season series, 14-5, barring a sudden revival of the Red Sox, who are quietly sleeping this game away.

Amazingly this somehow includes the three straight obliterations in late July in Fenway, 38-13 combined. NY won 14 of the other 16 meetings, did not see that coming.

We saw a lot of positives this series including Paxton and Happ being dominate against elite batters. The RP was also great, and Gio came back and had an immediate impact with that nice catch yesterday and HR today. Also, EE continues to look good since returning. The team looks great.
