Houston 4, NYY 0

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Too bad such a great season had to end on such an ugly note. Over the last two months of the season, the Yankees were a better team than the Astros, period. But anything can happen in a seven game series, and so the Yankees came up short ...

Houston 7, NYY 1

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

What in the world was Girardi thinking leaving Severino in after walking the number six and eight batters in the fifth inning? He had clearly lost the strike zone, and with the Yankees getting shut out by Verlander, giving up just one run could be the end. And ...

NYY 5, Houston 0

Yet another amazing win. Tanaka was incredible, throwing seven innings of shutout ball. And the offense was just as good, getting one critical hit after another, actually getting to the previously unhittable Dallas Keuchel for four runs. The roll this team is on now, you almost wish ...

NYY 6, Houston 4

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

What an amazing team! Through the top of the seventh, it was a total clown show. Only one hit, three errors, base running blunders, two unearned runs, and down 4-0. Then everyone comes alive, everyone is hitting and hustling and making plays, and voila -- an incredible ...

Houston 2, NYY 1

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

That was painful. It's one thing to get shut down by the likes of Dallas Keuchel, but getting just one run off Justin Verlander is something else. So now it's a steep hill to climb, down 0-2 with the number three and four starters scheduled for the next ...

Houston 2, NYY 1

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

With Keuchel on the mound for the Astros you had to figure that Tanaka would have to be near perfect to even give the Yankees a chance, so when Tanaka gave up those two runs in the fourth that was pretty much it. Oh well, if they can win ...

NYY 5, Cleveland 2

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

What an incredible win! Fantastic pitching -- Sabathia pitched a great game, and then Robertson and Chapman came through in the clutch with 4.2 no-hit innings. And how about Didi Gregorius hitting not one, but two home runs off Kluber, the best pitcher in the league! And ...

NYY 7, Cleveland 3

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Turnabout is fair play. This one was just as ugly for Cleveland as game two was for the Yankees. Thanks to six unearned runs, we live to see one more game. And what a great comeback for Severino -- after getting knocked out in the wildcard game ...

NYY 1, Cleveland 0

Monday, October 9th, 2017

What an amazing performance by Tanaka and Chapman, particularly Tanaka. When he is on, he's about as good as it gets. And so the Yankees live to see another day -- although it's still a very steep hill they will have to climb. Sure would be nice ...
