I ate a few Twinkies today during the game, had them in the pantry since 2022. They were good.

That was an excellent choice of photo in the introduction page before clicking to this article. It shows Clarke Schmidt's true personality. When Schmidt is in the dugout, he is loud, boisterous, rowdy, and a true "rah rah" type, playfully teasing his teammates, and even having "sunflower seed spitting" contests. He shouts and screams (in a high-pitched voice!) when his teammates do great things (homers, key hits, great defensive plays, key strikeouts by Yankee pitchers, etc), and he even sings, belting out tunes on the bench! He takes that personality into the game where he is absolutely a fearless bulldog on the mound.

The way I know this, the New York Yankees facebook page posted a video of Clarke Schmidt mic'd up during an entire game (they just showed the highlights in the video), and that was how I learned his true very outgoing loud and rowdy personality. I saw a video of Gerrit Cole mic'd up, too, and he also likes to sing and belt out the National Anthem and "God Bless America". He also joined Schmidt in song in the Clarke Schmidt mic'd up video.

Just heard an amazing stat on the YES recap: Judge's 6 XBH and 2 BB is the first time a Yankee has done that in two straight games since Joe DiMaggio in 1937. Mantle didn't do it; Berra didn't do it; Murcer, Jackson, Winfield, Mattingly, Jeter -- none of them did it. When you're the first Yankee to do something great since DiMaggio 87 years ago, you are and you've done something special.

Regarding that Simon & Garfunkel song, the original title of that song was "Mrs Roosevelt" (a tribute to Eleanor Roosevelt), but they changed the name of the song from "Mrs Roosevelt" to "Mrs Robinson" because the producer of the movie "The Graduate" wanted to use that song in his movie and wanted it to match the "Mrs Robinson" character (played by Anne Bancroft) in the movie.

It seems no one wants to go to the pen when Cole returns. Schmidt looking like an All-Star. He's No. 8 in the AL in ERA.


Yankee pitching shut down the Washington Generals -- I mean, the Minnesota Twins -- in their own park. 0.33 ERA, 26 straight shutout innings, .144 BA (14-for-97)

Definitely a possible scenario, or else, maybe Cole will piggyback with whoever in that starting rotation ends up being the "weakest link".

"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."
