He's turning into the second coming of Monty. He pitches strongly but we can't score for him.

Why was Stanton not pinch-run for? His run needs to score on a ground out or fly out. Volpe would have made that a close play at the plate.

Peraza demonstrates the sort of arm strength at shortstop that Volpe doesn't quite possess.


if Peraza continues to hit, the Yankees exit the season with three valuable middle infielders

Whew. That strike three to Guerrero looked low and outside, but the ump has been calling them strikes all night. I can't wait for the tech to advance sufficiently to automate ball/strike calls.

it was tactical excellence.

they had to choose between giving Guerrero a chance at multiple RBIs

or putting the ball slightly off the plate

a place where Guerrero might hit it on the ground or foul or miss it altogether

of he could refuse to swing

and leave it to the ump to decide whether the Jays would score one run


or none

big test for King and his ambition to be a starter.


as well, a small bit of a showcase for the Yankees' best defender at shortstop, Peraza.

"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."
