Quick Hit: Yankees 3, Orioles 2

Gerrit Cole is 4-0

Clay Holmes got the save (his third).

The Yankees got three runs in the first inning, stopped scoring runs, and held off to win. I just don't think they would have won a game like this last year. Or the year before. Or the year before that.

This year is different in so many ways.

So many good ways.

The Yankees are 28-9.

I agree, Paul. The past couple of years, we'd see the game where they'd have one big inning and then . . . nothing, no tack-on runs, and the opponent would creep back and creep back and creep back and . . . creep ahead, and the Yankees would lose. This year, the pitching can bail them out (though I wouldn't want to try this against the good teams in league).

is it possible that the Yankees could be 20 games above .500

before playing 40 games?

Replying to

2022 Yankees after 37 games: 28-9.

1998 Yankees after 37 games: 28-9 (right after Wells' perfect game, BTW).

That's impressive.

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."
