Quick Hit: Buttoned-Up Win!

Carlos Rodon pitched (and looks) great, Alex Verdugo smacked a home run, and the Yankees win 3-2 in a close one with the Marlins.

the Yankees continue to draw walks. they lead the majors with 59 BBs in 12 games


and they continue to average 5runs/gm. ...as they also have scored 59 runs in 12 games


interestingly, they struck out 97 times ...and amassed 97 hits

As I mentioned in the Game Thread, I am looking forward to tomorrow, to seeing what happens when Marcus Stroman faces Tim Anderson.

Of course tonight's game isn't televised on YES. Most of the Yankee nation won't get to see any of it.

Right now everything breaking right for Yanks Defense very shaky tonight Rizzo Berti and Torres then Torres made a great play in the 8th. Tighten up defense and some balls were hit hard but didn’t find the hole That’s baseball Go Yanks

I'd feel a lot better about Cortes and Rodon if their most recent starts were against an actual Major League team. We'll know a lot more when we see them against the Jays up in Toronto next week.

what I saw from Cortes in that last game was a guy pitching with confidence, certain that he would best the hitters.

you're correct to point out that they were less than stellar hitters

but Cortes isn't a rookie and he's beaten the Blue Jays in previous seasons.

GREAT TITLE.


Rodon looks differently than last year.

He dresses differently.

And he's pitching differently.


I like it.

Rodon added a 3rd pitch, a cutter. That will be a major difference in his pitching this year.

"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."
