    He passed through waivers too. Not that I think the Marlins would actually trade him mind.

    There's been talk of it. Would be a terrible first move for Jeter.

    Homer number 49 for Judge ties McGwire’s rookie record.

    Judge is past McGwire now.

    He hit .208 in July and August and still has 50 homers and a .283 average.

    59 for Stanton, best since 2001

    First play off series since 2012, fuck yes!



    I’m actually quietly confident given the way our roster is built. Queue the Indians sweeping us in 3.

    Anyone know why Girardi didn’t challenge the hit by pitch? Anyone???

    Because he's an arrogant toolbag who trusts Sanchez about as far as he can throw him.

    Don't blame you, probably the turning point in the whole game. And maybe its hyperbole, but that decision might cost the Yankees the series and Giradi his job.

    Amazing how many starting pitchers, who have been excellent in the regular season, have turned into hot garbage in the play offs so far. Severino, E.Santana, Grienke, Gray, Kluber, Kershaw. Incredible how many have been terrible.

    Well we lasted longer than the Red Sox at least. If we lose game 5 we put up a fight against the best team in the AL, so no shame in losing in 5 to them.

    Fantastic series for the Yankees, wining 3 straight elimination games, and we really should have won 4 of 5.

    We only won 2 of the 7 games against the Astros this year so not expecting much, but we’re playing well with no pressure. Just making the play offs exceeded expectations so this team is very much in credit, even if we get swept.

    Caught the Cubs v Nationals last night, for my first game of the season and it was a belter. It was a close run thing and the pitchers were beginning to bottle it, but the Cubs managed to scrape through in the end and that's great.

    Will probably watch one of the game 3's on Monday/Tuesday and take it from there.

    The MLB and TV networks must be loving this, the 4 biggest cities in the final 4. You've got the "not supposed to be this good" Yankees, (which in itself is ludicrous, the amount of money they spend), the big spending Dodgers trying to end their post season woes, the defending Champion Cubs and the Astros trying to win their first World Series.

    Got to think the Astros are the team most neutrals are rooting for. Would make for the nicest storyline given the floods and everything that area has gone through in the last few months. So inevitably, it'll be one of the Cubs/Yankees who win it.

    Well the Dodgers are doing what the Yankees used to do, in that they’re throwing their money around. The only player in the lineup last night who didn’t come as the result of a trade or the farm, was Headley who is on $13m a year.

    Aye true but they are more likeable and Kershaw seems like a good guy and with the record he's got, deserves a world series.

    Well that was disappointing, especially as we failed to score a single run in games 6 and 7. Still, we’ve come a long way this year so hard to be too down.
