Game 136: Yankees (66-69) vs Astros (77-59)


Apparently the Yankees have thrown in the towel -- no IKF!

Torres sits.

Oswaldo gets in a game.

One HR and Dominquez moves to Mantle's position in the lineup.

Fangraphs is not a big fan of the Yankiddies -- Astros are 65% favorites.

Holmes terrifies me. I'm surprised Boone trusts him to close a one-run game.

I hope that if Phil Maton ever has a daughter, he names her "Autumn."

Minnesota should sign Severino. Against the AL Central, he should do OK. Just make sure he doesn't bring his gopher farm against any >.500 teams.

65 pitches to get through 2 innings? Sevy is not Sevy again.

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."

—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."
