LET'S GET THIS ON!

And may the best team win!

Win or lose, this has been one of my favorite Yankees teams to follow and root and cheer for ever.

UNICHATTER.

Baseball still stinks.

HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TONIGHT ?

From a poster on another Yankees blog:


7 Ara Just Fair ~ Oct 21, 2017 6:00 pm

My 2 1/2 year old just said between bites of pancakes, "Here comes The Judge. Dammit."


HERE COMES THE JUDGE, DAMMIT!

Exactly!

Baseball still stinks.


If there's still baseball, it doesn't stink ...

Win or lose, this has been one of my favorite Yankees teams to follow and root and cheer for ever.


Agreed.
With Gardner, Judge, Sanchez and a few others ... finally there is something like a Yankee Spirit in me again.
I am a torn man, torn between the Yanks and Gigantes !

Go Yankees ! In 7 !

Not a very good start, not at all !
   9. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:25 PM (#5559713)
Sanchez!
   10. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:29 PM (#5559718)
This is, horribly, almost like a no-lose. If the Yankees win I might be able to catch a game 6 with a friend in L.A.. If they lose, they lose, which is also awesome in its own way.
   11. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:32 PM (#5559721)
OK, wow.
   12. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:33 PM (#5559722)
I guess that's the advantage of having a power forward playing RF.
   13. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:33 PM (#5559723)
Judge extended his jurisdiction to issue a Writ of Replevin returning that ball to the ballpark!

   15. Hot Wheeling American, MS-13 Enthusiast Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:34 PM (#5559725)
Great catch, but the ball would not have cleared the fence on its own
   16. Baldrick Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:34 PM (#5559727)
Serious missed opportunity to knock the glove off of his hand when it went over the fence. C'mon Astros fans!
   17. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:36 PM (#5559728)
Great catch, but the ball would not have cleared the fence on its own

Replay clearly shows that it would have. I suppose Judge was moving so fast it was difficult to discern.
   18. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:37 PM (#5559730)
GF: "That pitcher is really fat. Is he bigger than Big Papi?"
   19. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:38 PM (#5559731)
Great catch, but the ball would not have cleared the fence on its own

I went back and forth, and then was clearing dinner and I think I missed the definitive angle.
   20. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:39 PM (#5559732)
Tell her, he was fat and good, and then skinny and terrible and then fat and good again!
   21. Hot Wheeling American, MS-13 Enthusiast Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:40 PM (#5559735)

Nope

Like Forest Whitaker alternating prestige-y Oscar bait and cash grabby popcorn movies.
   23. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:42 PM (#5559737)
Replay clearly shows that it would have.
Nope


Glad we have that solved. I didn't even need to watch it myself!


Tell her, he was fat and good, and then skinny and terrible and then fat and good again!

I did this exact thing. But she hates the Yankees, she's a New Englander.
   24. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:45 PM (#5559738)
Judge was 4 or 5 feet above the wall when he made the catch. None of the broadcast crew seem to think there was any doubt.
   25. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:47 PM (#5559740)
I've always loved CC. And pretty much every fat ballplayer, ever.


Like Forest Whitaker alternating prestige-y Oscar bait and cash grabby popcorn movies.

His bit in The Shield was awesome. And he'll always be Ghost Dog to me.
   26. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:47 PM (#5559741)
Another view:
Andrew Marchand, ESPN Senior Writer

The Yankees' Aaron Judge saved the first run of ALCS Game 7 from scoring, by racing to the right field wall, leaping and stealing what appeared to be a solo homer from the Astros' Yuli Gurriel in the second. Judge's glove went over the wall as he made the catch and he did an incredible job of hanging on to the ball.
   27. Howie Menckel Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:48 PM (#5559742)
Great catch, but the ball would not have cleared the fence on its own

this is correct.

another wonder of DVR!
I re-checked all of the replays, and all but one angle DOES make it seem like it would have been a HR. but in the middle of the replay sequence, just once they show one from basically CF warning track. no chance that ball goes out.

if that seems confusing, consider Judge's wingspan and how even with the lunge, he barely had to pull the ball "over" the fence. basically an optical illusion, and even a Yankees fan seeing THAT replay surely will stand down. we're not used to adjusting for 6-foot-8 outfielders.

beat guys don't have a couple of minutes to rewatch every replay there.

#carryon

and a very nice catch anyway.

   28. K-BAR, J-BAR (trhn) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:49 PM (#5559743)
How are they getting through these innings with so few pitches? It doesn't seem possible based on what I saw in the Cubs vs. Dodgers series.
   29. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:50 PM (#5559744)
I think that was at best 50/50 a homerun. The side angle really made it seem like the ball would come down before the top of the fence.
   30. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:50 PM (#5559745)
This seems like a bad review.
   31. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:53 PM (#5559746)
Three runs in 30 innings ain't gonna cut it, Yankees.
   32. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:54 PM (#5559747)
Phenomenal catch, regardless. People are too hung up on dingers.
   33. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:55 PM (#5559748)
Haven't seen the side angle, strange that they wouldn't replay it if definitive.
   34. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 08:57 PM (#5559749)
1-877-run over a kid today!
   35. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:02 PM (#5559752)
CC has lost the plate in a big way.
   36. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:05 PM (#5559754)
Should have thrown to third there. It was not only the lead runner but also the easier play.
   37. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:06 PM (#5559755)
That should probably be it for Sabathia. The dude has been pitching through trouble and has no stamina.
   38. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:08 PM (#5559757)
Need CC to get through five.

And some runs!
   39. PreservedFish Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:09 PM (#5559759)
Should have thrown to third there. It was not only the lead runner but also the easier play.


Disagree. That would have been a difficult play.
   40. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:10 PM (#5559760)
Yanks burned Green last night. That pen is a bit thin tonight.
   41. TomH Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:11 PM (#5559761)
Radio announcers harping on CC may not feel well. They say he doesn't look right, isn't acting right, his teammates keep going to the mound to check on him, and there's a bug going through the Yankee clubhouse with inference he may have it.
   42. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:12 PM (#5559764)
That pen is a bit thin tonight.


Green is done.

Robertson looked cooked last night.

Could get dicey quickly ...

   43. Bote Man Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:12 PM (#5559765)
Radio announcers harping on CC may not feel well.

Houston or New York radio announcers?
   44. TomH Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:13 PM (#5559766)
ESPN
   45. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:14 PM (#5559767)
Could get dicey quickly ...

And Morton is dealing.

   46. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:17 PM (#5559769)
Judge was 4 or 5 feet above the wall when he made the catch.

Your shilling truly knows no bounds.
   47. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:20 PM (#5559772)
Well, ####
   48. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:20 PM (#5559773)
[37] Wow, what a call!
   49. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:20 PM (#5559774)
Burly, indeed.
   50. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:22 PM (#5559776)
Put a fork in CC. He done.
   51. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:22 PM (#5559777)
This feels like a continuation of last inning. Sabathia was very fortunate not to give up any runs then.
   52. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:23 PM (#5559778)
Kahnle should be ready to come in at this point.

[edit] as in ... he should have been warming already
   53. Baldrick Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:25 PM (#5559779)
Sabathia has absolutely nothing tonight, and the Astros have him on the ropes, except they still only have one actual run. So...they really need to get something here before CC gets yanked.
   54. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:27 PM (#5559782)
That hook seems a little quick. But maybe not. I've been doing other things.
   55. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:27 PM (#5559783)
He's done.
   56. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:27 PM (#5559784)
Not so hot, CC ... meh.
   57. PreservedFish Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:29 PM (#5559786)
I get it the hook.

By contrast, the Astros should ride Morton pretty hard.
   58. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:31 PM (#5559788)
1 PITCH 2 OUTS!!
   59. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:31 PM (#5559789)
Sweet.
   60. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:34 PM (#5559793)
The Word
   61. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:39 PM (#5559795)
Morton looks like he's fading, too.
   62. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:41 PM (#5559797)
Like the Yankees chances if they get to Morton here.
   63. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:42 PM (#5559799)
Hot damn that was an awesome play.
   64. Baldrick Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:44 PM (#5559800)
Holy crap, what a throw.
   65. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:44 PM (#5559801)
I love Bird, but he is not ... swift of foot.
   66. . . . . . . Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:45 PM (#5559802)
The zone for Morton has been...ample.
   67. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:47 PM (#5559804)
Bad omen.
   68. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:48 PM (#5559805)
That Bird can walk is good at this point.
   69. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:48 PM (#5559806)
The zone for both pitchers has been. I would not have put money on Morton going shutout for this long.
   70. . . . . . . Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:51 PM (#5559808)
I don't think Morton's been that great. Lot of hard fouls and line outs and gift strikeouts. I mean, it makes for better games when the umps keep scoring down on a night when Sabathia had nothing and Morton was meh, but it's an illusion...
   71. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:52 PM (#5559810)
Oppo power from the shortest man in baseball.
   72. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:52 PM (#5559811)
Altuve is legit.
   73. . . . . . . Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:52 PM (#5559812)
Altuve is so great. He's the player everyone thought Pedroia was bc of Fenway.
   74. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:52 PM (#5559813)
Altuve. ALTUVE.
   75. PreservedFish Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:52 PM (#5559814)
5 hour energy!
   76. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5559815)
Not good.
   77. Baldrick Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5559816)
Altuve!
   78. Tin Angel Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5559817)
That Bird can walk is good at this point.


I was surprised McCann wasn't hurt, that spike to the wrist couldn't have felt great.
   79. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5559818)
The ####### Terror Tot
   80. . . . . . . Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:55 PM (#5559819)
I would be really interested in a comparative home/away zone analysis for this series.
   81. Bote Man Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:56 PM (#5559821)
I was surprised McCann wasn't hurt, that spike to the wrist couldn't have felt great.

In the Unwritten Rules it says it actually makes him stronger.
   82. Tin Angel Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:58 PM (#5559822)
That's what I like to see, an old school hit and run. Now bunt him over!!
   83. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 21, 2017 at 09:58 PM (#5559823)
Kahnle looks stunningly ordinary.
   84. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:00 PM (#5559825)
Does Gattis wear a black wedding band?
   85. Tin Angel Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:01 PM (#5559826)

Replying to @Buster_ESPN
how about you tweet about the horrible umpires you pencil neck
   86. TomH Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:05 PM (#5559829)
Astros 11 baserunners, and 2 home runs. Yet only 2 runs.
   87. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:05 PM (#5559830)
The Arsetros are just too good. No way the Yankees can win this. This is over. But HEY, nice going Yanks.

Tanaka would have won it !
   88. TomH Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:05 PM (#5559831)
Not any more!
   89. Lassus Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:05 PM (#5559832)
Hmmm... I admit thinking the Yankees were going to win this one.
   90. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:06 PM (#5559834)
Add on two more.
   91. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:06 PM (#5559836)
Well, Ball Saxbury ... that's that.
   92. Meatwad Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:06 PM (#5559837)
Go astros.
   93. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:06 PM (#5559838)
not looking good at all.
   94. K-BAR, J-BAR (trhn) Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM (#5559839)
Blame it on Kahnle.
   95. PreservedFish Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM (#5559840)
This Astros team is good and wildly entertaining. God bless them.
   96. Baldrick Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM (#5559841)
They really needed that. To have had that many chances and only be up 2-0 would have been pretty disastrous. Not that 4-0 is safe or anything, but it's a heck of a lot better position to be in.
   97. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM (#5559842)
All this setting the Yankees' WS roster the other day jinxed it!
   98. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM (#5559843)
I HOPE THE ANGELS LOSE EVERY GAME FROM NOW ON ! FOREVER !
   99. perros Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:08 PM (#5559844)
Well, a comeback would be something.
   100. The_Ex Posted: October 21, 2017 at 10:09 PM (#5559845)
According to gameday Kahnle was throwing 75% change ups including five straight to McCann. I wonder if he is hurting.
