Wow, the Rays used two outs to score two runners from third base. I've watched the Yankees all year and had no idea such a thing was possible!

I get to watch the game today as MLB showing it for free. I hope I don't regret it.

At least Judge is only the DH. Lefty bat Rortvedt gets to play, but Cabrera gets to sit on the bench again. So why was he left on this roster if he continues to be, if he's lucky, the PR/defensive replacement for Stanton?

It seems more important to play IKF who should not be on this team next year.

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."
