Game 121: Yanks (60-60) vs Braves (77-42)


Can the Yankees hit better than last night?

Yankees need to hire a pyromaniac -- to light a fire under them.

Major line-up shakeup: Torres and Judge flipped in batting order!!!!! That'll fix the Yankees.

Fangraphs has ATL at 66% winning chance.

Well, at least tonight they made it to the second inning before the Braves put the game out of reach.



With apologies to the Scooter I will be "NW" (Not Watching) again tonight.



Another jerry-rigged lineup card. Every night no one knows why or wherefore.

The Yankees have a chance, TONIGHT to do two big things:

  1. A loss will give them five losses in a row. That would be their longest streak of the year!!!

2. A loss will put them under .500 for the first time this year.

I thought coaches and managers are supposed to fire a team up.

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."
