Chas Headley sure came crashing back down to earth in a hurry, didn’t he?  Sort of like the Yankees are doing right now, or at least will be by the time the Astros are done sweeping them.

I have a nervous feeling that this is not going to go well for Montgomery.

At least with Saturday’s rain-out it will only be a 3 game sweep.

Yay, they’re doing my lineup idea!

Not much of an 0-2 pitch

Is Gary chasing a bunch?

Oppo slap Aaron.

I will slap an oppo UP.

I’m not one to care about batting orders, but aside from Gardner at leadoff this one truly looks pulled out of a hat.

This is going to be one ugly tumble under .500 level.

Watch game/movie? Game/movie? Game/movie? Movie!

I’m not too concerned. This series was always a terrible matchup. Their one shitty pitcher was going on the day that was going to get rained out. And tonight’s pitching matchup was fully in their favor. Sometimes you get a shitty series, it happens.

Reminds me of the tech bubble.

[7] that was always my favorite Prodigy song.

If the Yankees do make the playoffs they’ll probably play Houston. So instead of one night of torture against a pitcher they can’t hit we’ll get three.

If they win the AL East, they can likely avoid Houston in the first round.

The Stinkees are back in town.


Mateo showing some life, 2 HR’s and a double.

Chance Adams to SWB.

15 Price is close to returning.  Don’t see Yankees getting more than a WC.

What was Chapman doing in a 5 run game?  And is he hurt, 1ip 3h 1r?
