The A’s have had their chances. Pathetic swings. I have a strong dislike for Severino.

I consider myself a sensible and accepting person in all aspects of life.
I do not consider myself judgmental or irrational but...
every Yankee hitter and pitcher has a face that I want to punch
And
Every crowd shot, makes my blood boil as I look for a single person in the crowd who is not acting like an drunken frat guy at a party...
Am I the only one to feel this way?

No, I feel the same and since 2013 I enjoy more when the MFYs lose, than when the Sox win.

When does Trivino become a free agent? He'd look great in red and white.
He is pre-arb with the A's. My guess is he is someone that Beane will put on the block next season if the A's are out of contention at the deadline. He will get someone like the Nats or the Dodgers to give him three good prospects for him too. In other words, he probably won't be in Boston any time soon.

You are not.

My hatred knows no bounds.

And the fact that the Legends seats are half empty is just one more thing too despise. All those idiots stuffing their faces during each and every game....

I understand this feeling. It’s horribly unhealthy and I should probably work towards getting my emotions in check but goddamn I just can’t.

Now that the game is official, A's should just forfeit. They clearly are not going to be able to push a single run across against the superlative MFY bullpen.

I am gonna be honest and say that I do like Aaron Judge a lot. There; I said it. I’m sorry but I am human after all.

Damn you and your comprehensive knowledge. I want my binky.

Agreed. I don't know why were are even conducting this charade. The Yankee bullpen is uhittable and certainly wont give up any runs - I mean the Sox got to them but that will never happen again. The Yankees might as well get a spot for their next trophy. They are the odds on favorite to win it all at this point.

And kelly does it. No 3 run inning by the MFY. No homer by the MFY. No crooked number by the MFY.

A’s can do this.
