They're over matched at the plate. Only Judge had good swings tonight. OK Bader had one good one. All they can hope for is that the tide turns in NY.

Not a chance. To win the series, either they have to sweep in New York and win one in Houston, or win two in New York and two in Houston. Neither of those is going to happen. This is a sub-.500 team since July 2.

Not going to happen. Another season of failure.

Inept maybe…but gutless?

You don't show up. You don't put up good at-bats. You strike out 30 times in two games. You need a two-base error by the opposition to avoid being shut out. That is gutless.

Even without Tom Petty it was a heartbreaker.

Yankees 9-for-65 (.138), 1-for-8 RISP (.125). Disgusting and gutless.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
