Uh-oh. Holmes in the 9th with a four-run lead. This is tempting fate.

Yesterday, it was Detroit with the fatal "go on contact from third" play. Today, it's the old "second and third, one out, no runs" routine. It's like watching the Yankees in stereo.

Bader has been waived, too, according to YES.

Oh no, the post-season luck discussion again...

A player can have a small sample size hot streak. But when a team loses year after year to better teams, that isn't bad luck. That's the exact opposite. When a worse team wins, that's random good luck.

I also didn't want Judge in CF, but you make a good point about the wall.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

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."

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."
