The Curse of Jerry Hairston, Jr./Eric Hinske:

Sunday, August 13, 2017 Yanks start fast, but Sevy stumbles vs. Sox

Andrew Benintendi’s sweet stroke produced a pair of three-run homers as the Red Sox pounded Luis Severino and the Yankees, 10-5, on Saturday afternoon to claim their ninth victory in 10 games.

One day after the Red Sox’s bullpen coughed up a three-run advantage just six outs from victory, Benintendi ensured there would be no repeat of that performance as Boston reclaimed a 4 1/2-game advantage over the Yankees in the American League East chase. It matches the Yankees’ largest deficit of the season.

“That’s been a little bit of the characteristic of this team,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell. “We’ve done a very good job of separating from the night before, coming back in for a day game, putting up good offensive at-bats and scoring runs early in ballgames. I think that’s a testament to our guys being able to turn the page and get right after it the next day.”

Luis Severino gave up 8 runs in under 5 innings. You’re not going to win very many ball games where your best pitcher gives up two three-run home runs in the same game (to the same guy!), so it is hard to say all that much about this game other than “Damn, it sucks when Severino gets bombed.”

In other news, Tanaka felt sore, so he asked to be put on the DL so he could basically rest his arm for a week. Scary. Also, Jordan Montgomery was hit in the head with a baseball during batting practice. Also very scary. He seems to be okay and appears to be ready to lose the finale of this series to Chris Sale on Sunday night.

At least they scored some runs. 10 in the last 10 innings. If they can keep up that pace they will be fine. Of course that cake after being shut out for a bazillion innings in a two. (Bazillion may be a slight overestimation)

Dear Yankees.Com fuck Ben whatshisname’s sweet swing.

Also I saw a girl wearing a Brian McCann shirt.  Who the hell bought a Brian McCann shirt and still wears it?

3 Hey coming home from work Friday at the Court St station in LIC I saw a guy wearing a Reagan Bush tank top and it wasn’t even Thursday.

Why would anyone still be wearing a Judge jersey?

Sunk cost, I guess.

Why not, not that I would wear any Jersey. I might, might wear a Mantle tee shirt.

[7] don’t see anything relevant there.

Romine day, Gary DH which I thought would happen. But Headley over Cooper surprised me. And Todd hitting 5th says it all about the state of our hitting.
