If Marisnick gets a hit and I lose? Fine I'll accept it.
    Right, and Smoltz was all over this on the broadcast. HEY there's a base open (even tho Springer was just on first), you don't want Altuve to beat you and the count is 2-0. Can't give in w Marisnick on deck. PLUS the fact that Chapman was clearly hit a wall after he had gotten 2 outs. Get to the new batter and regroup. It would have been nice to have AB sprint out there and give Chappy this message real time.

    This is what kills me. The "odds." You gotta use your eyes sometimes, man. Chapman clearly lost the zone. I'm taking my chances that Marisnick won't square up an 83 MPH hanger vs Altuve doing the same.

    Yes. I made the comparison earlier of pitching to Altuve there with Marisnick on deck, would be the equivalent of the Astros pitching to Gleyber there with Tyler Wade on deck.

    So I ask everyone.....would you be hoping they go after Gleyber there or do you prefer Wade with a runner on 2nd? I know what my answer is. I am thinking the inning is over if Wade comes up.

    If Chapman is on point, I trust him. But you could see that he lost it. The only way he's getting out of that inning is if Altuve hits a liner at someone or just misses a pitch and hits it to the track or something of that nature. You know, kinda like what Gardner did in the 6th and what Hicks did in the 7th (the Brantley DP).

    Altuve is one of the best fastball hitters in baseball. Chapman could not control his fastball. I totally understand throwing sliders. He hung one. That was that.

    But I'm not sure how you get beat with your 2nd best pitch on 2-0 with Jake Marisnick on deck.

    It was a 2-1 count.

    The pitch before he snapped off a nasty slider that Altuve took right over the plate.

    Boone summed it up in post game. It wasn't an intentional walk situation. You pitch like you are ahead in the count. He just made a mistake and hung a pitch. Would you feel better if it was a fastball? As I recall in 2017 Altuve rifled a Chapman 101 mph fastball right up the middle and then scored on the Correa double to win game 2 of the ALCS.

    IDK, if he gets Altuve it's a great gutsy call. If Altuve beats him he's blasted for not going after Marisnick. If he walks Altuve and Marisnick flairs on for a game winning single you say how could he walk the winning run to 2B.


    I would have been happier with any pitch out of the zone and try to get Altuve to chase and get himself out but he hung a slider at a really bad time.

    The Yankees have struck out getting into the World Series for the last 10 years despite pouring more than $2 billion into player salaries, The Wall Street Journal reports. True, the team won more regular season games than any other, but this only reinforces they're the kind of franchise their fans once mocked: “Great in every way but the one that counts.” Adding insult to injury, this is the first time in a century they've gone a full calendar decade without so much as appearing in the Fall Classic.

    It was like the 80. Only mane the WS in 81 strike year. Outspent everyone in the decade and best regular season record but no WS tittles to show.


    That said this Yankees team is set up way better than those Yankees teams heading into the 90s.

    Boone spelled out his lack of situational awareness as loudly as humanly possible right then and there.

    You can count the # of hitters in the sport on a hand that is missing digits who were better equipped to win that game than Altuve.

    No gross errors like last ALDS but lack of situational awareness or game feel evident:

    — game 2 quick hook on rolling Green
    — game 2 not extending Britton to second inning
    — game 6 why the FFFFF was Didi not playing in
    — game 6 OTP running out there and cautioning, do NOT give this guy anything to hit

    I would feel better about it if I felt there was a light on in the attic and Chappy then just messed up, vs a get me over cement mixer slider to try and even the count.

    - game 6 quick hook on rolling Happ who was the only reliever stretched out to go several innings.

    Well, the odds ......

    I agree with you.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    And most of the positive stuff for Astros was in 2 games where they hit 3-3R HR and a 2R- HR. The 2 biggest differences were Astros played better D and hit more of their HRs with men on base.

    It’s taken me over 24 hours to overcome my overwhelming desire to burn Jose Altuve in effigy. The 2019 Yankees achieved so much after overcoming so many obstacles! Arguably, if German had been available in the rotation, they could have gone all the way.

    Having said all that, the WS pitching contest between Scherzer/Strasburg/Sanchez and Cole/Verlander/Greinke should be a compelling one. Go Nats!!!

    In effigy? Pretty tame overwhelming desire.

    totally agree on this. he used Happ like a pure pen guy and he could have given more length. hey, you never know how it turns out, but this way you avoid a gassed Kahnle and win the pen length battle -- one we also lost bigly in game 2.

    Or Happ does what he did all year, Start the game! Maybe he doesn't give up those 3 runs that Green did. Then Green can be used later in the game.

    Made no sense to do a bullpen game when you had a starter in Happ available.

    I was thoroughly impressed by watching both Cole and Scherzer pitching so deep into last night's game. Scherzer coming back out to pitch the 5th, even though he had already thrown close to 100 pitches through 4, was refreshing to see especially after the Nats took that lead in the 5th. Feels like Boone would have gone to the bullpen at that point. Then, Cole staying in the game after that rocky 5th inning, and pitching two more innings was terrific to see. Again, feels like Boone would have used at least two or three more bullpen arms by that time. Having a super bullpen is great. But the temptation to always replace your starters at the first sign of trouble is one of my least favorite trends in the game, at least with this team.

    Why is nobody talking about this? Have a short hook but at least let Happ start it. They must not have trusted him at all to start.

    Is Scherzer a FA this year or is it just Cole? I wouldn't mind either one but Scherzer showed me something last night. Grinder can get it done when he doesn't have his best stuff. Yankees need that!

    Cole is FA
    strasburg can opt out
    Scherzer has like 3 years left on his deal.
