    That was an amazing at bat.


    He was just trying to make contact, and fouled a bunch of pitches until he thrown the pitch he wanted.

    Great base running by Frazier on the error.

    A batter was trying to make contact with the ball? Holy shit! This insight is amazing! Tell me more! Was the pitcher trying to avoid the batter hitting the ball? Or did the pitcher want the batter to hit it? Me so confuse!!

That's so different than every other single sports game where one team won and the other lost.

    Managing the pitching staff the way they did in giving their Starters the proper rest was another reason. Not going to the Bullpen to early. Getting a Superb game out Tanaka and Severino. Also getting a good enough game out of CC tonight against Kluber was huge. DiDi setting the tone early in the game with the two home runs was also what they had to do to set the tone.

    Having that Wild Card Match than playing the Indians on the Road 2 games and losing one game they should have won and than coming back and winning 3 games in a row. Shit ain't easy bro, especially against a team like Cleveland.

    Yea Gardner likes to annoy the shit out of pitchers till he gets what he wants. It's fun to watch those battles. Yea Frazier is a smart player. That run he mad was a game changer. I wasn't that confident going into the bottom of the 9th only up one run. Chapman is good but we've seen him make mistakes before.

    The big mis manage here was pitching to Gardner and not walking him to get to an ice cold judge.

    That... actually makes a lot of sense, now that you mention it...

    Like, after the sitch or seventh foul ball and realizing Gardner was just waiting for the right ball, had they done that, I could totally see Judge striking out.

    Thinking about it more and I don't know if I would have done it. Judge was itching to get a Big hit. Had they put him in that position with the bases loaded there is a possibility of a grand slam and than the shit would have really blown up. It's risky either way. Take a base hit or a possibility of a grand slam. I've seen players in the past go 0-for whatever and they just need that one big hit that makes up for all those shit at bats.

    Tino Martinez
    Paul O'Neill
    Chuck Knoblauch
    Mike Stanton
    Daryl Strawberry
    Chili (edit not Chris) Davis
    Joe Girardi
    Jeff Nelson

    Also they were the big name on the foreign player market and players like Hideki Irabu refused to sign with anyone BUT them. I'm sure it helped getting Orlando Hernandez.

    Lastly the free agent draft is different now then what it used to be. The picks could refuse to sign with whoever drafted them and then sign whoever they want after waiting a year. The Yankees scooped up a ton of top talent that way by paying them big money. So even if it supposedly came from the homegrown talent it still has a lot to do with having the biggest pockets.

    Make no mistake The New York Yankees were "The Evil Empire" back then.

    Very true. On top of that, they had a owner who refused to lose. Once other teams started to lock up their young talent with long term contracts it was a wrap. Now the only way to do it is through scouting and farm system. Thee Yankees will have to lock some of these guys with some long term deals, especially Judge, I dont think he's going any where.

    Oh...I agree...in the 90's/early 2000's, you were only one of two fans:

    I love the Yankees
    Fuck the Yankees (pretty much every other fan)
    Got so butthurt, had to have anal surgery...

    Short swing, fast hands, IDK what they call it in your area. Dude is trying to simply get the ball in play. He was not trying to hit a homerun, or a sacrifice, which increases his chance of striking out. Aaron Judge strikes out consistently because he always bats for power.

    The pitcher was actually trying to get the batter to hit a popup if you notice the at bat he tried to avoid the lower part of the plate.

    Additionally, Gardner fouled at least 3 balls that were out of the strike zone in the second half of his twelve pitch at bat. He could have gotten a walk, but his goal was to get a hit over the infield.

    It was a great at bat.

    I still think I would have risked it. It's not like Judge was batting below average or anything like that, he was seriously ice cold, plus Gardner has a history of coming up with hits in those kinda moments too whereas Judge is an unknown in that. You're right though that if he crushed it out of the park it would have been talked about for days.

    Yea I would have leaned more towards walking Gardner.

    Wow...Cubs pull for a big win. Personally, I'm glad to see Davis get the chance to redeem himself after the meatball he have up in game 4. Being an ex KC fella, I have a soft spot for him...

    Some good teams in the AL/NLDS, this should be some great baseball.

    I agree, other than the LA/AZ series, the games have been great and very competitive. Who ever makes it to the WS, It's going to be great. May the best teams win.

    The possibility of having a Dodgers/Yankees WS is very awesome indeed. Mind you, its a very remote possibility, but it is there.

    Alas... Astros come first. Dang...

    I think Cubs Yankees would be even bigger. That would be a ratings machine.
