Our guy has a lower ERA than their guy. Therefore we will win

Get used to losing, the Royals are hot the Yankees are not.

Over-under until they hit .500.

Between the Stinkees and the Mutts New York may be able to field one healthy team.

Sanchez seems to be rounding into form. I’d like to see more power, though, of course.

Judge should have his shoe company make his baseball spikes look like Herman Munster shoes, but still let him run like a cheetah and jump like Cody Ransom.

Three line outs according to summary? Sounds ominous

That one i saw and that was a hard hit line drive out.

Did someone say POWER?

That wasn’t on the ground…at least until it left the park.

That made up for the Knicks dropping down to the 7th spot. It feels like the Knicks should just fold tent and go do something else. This pro basketball thing isn’t working out.

Thank you, Gary.

The Sancho Also Rises !!!!

That made up for the Knicks dropping down to the 7th spot.

Does it make up for them dropping to #8?

[12] No. only if Judge hits 2 HRs. I must have blacked out on their actual draft slot. Forgot they lost that coin toss to Minnesota.

#disgraceful !!!

Carter pops out sharply to the left-center field seats.

Twelve more to catch up to Judge.

CC will give up seven runs this inning, then throw three more scoreless.

[17] Dude is at 41 pitches now. No way he gets through 5.

[18]  He’ll be efficient with the runs.

CC’s era back under Tanaka’s.  Could’ve got a big price on that.

Judge hit ball hard Jane.

I love that Judge is swiping bags too.

[22] Who’s gonna stop him ? You ? Dude is 8’ tall in his bare feet.

No, you just say “Yes Sir, Mr. Judge, Sir. May I get you another bag ?”

$25? Mel didn’t adjust for inflation?

[23] Look, I think it’s pretty well established I couldn’t even stop Torreyes

[25] You may have noticed that I talk a lot of shit. I don’t mean anything by it. Ask anyone.

Did CC eat Dallas Keuchel?

Nah, but he licked him up, ReAL GOOD

[28] I don’t even know what I meant by that. It just felt vaguely Oh Brother !-ish.

Would be nice if Sanchez mooted that replay review.

Very good that CC had a good start again after his last few games

Yay win! Yay CC? (Dead cat bounce?)

[33]  He’s been bouncing that way for years.

Yay win! Yay Gary! Yay Pops!

[33] Jon Arbuckle might know.

Man, Baltimore has some serious bullpen issues.

Did you folks see that Aaron Judge segment on the Fallon?

If Gleyber Torres plays well enough in a few months that his promotion is the next obvious step, what actions should the Yankees take?

Would they keep their best SS in the system down in the minors for the rest of the year to avoid starting his playing time clock?  Should they promote him and have him split time with Didi?  Do they have Didi as a supersub?  Does Didi move him to third base, benching or cutting Headley?  Do they trade one of their infielders to make room for Torres?

I know, I know.  These things tend to work themselves out, but if everyone keeps playing at their current levels in July, what should they do?
