    He managed the team for 10 full seasons and averaged 91 wins a year. He was never an embarrassment to the franchise off the field.

    Good luck finding someone better than that…

    Game 7

    Posted by on October 21st, 2017 · Comments (5)

    In my lifetime, the Yankees have only won Game 7 once – the Boone home run game (and I was there for that one). I just missed the McCovey liner game by one month (since I was born in November ’62). I don’t remember 1964. But, I sure did suffer the pain of 2001 and 2004. So, in the last 20,000 days, the Yankees are 1-3 in Game Sevens. (The Yankees did win Game 5 in the ALCS back in 1976 and 1977 – before that was a seven game series. But, if you’re going to count Game Fives, then the Yankees are also 5-4 in Game 5 of all the ALDS that they have played too.) In any event, if the Yankees do win tonight, it will be a pretty big deal.

    Game 6

    There are 34 times in his career where Justin Verlander pitched 5 innings or less and allowed 4 earned runs or more.

    Basically, he gets rocked 1 out of every 11 starts. Hey, he ain’t God, man!

    Seriously, Yankees, do your thing. Keep the game close and get to their bullpen. Win it in six!!

    Been away on business and crazy, insanely, busy lately.

    In any event, I am now a believer.

    Never thought that they had a chance after Game 2 of the ALDS. Now, they have won me over.

    Yes, Houston is a super team. But, I think the Yankees can beat them.

    This team has a ton of character guys. It’s actually amazing how many…Todd Frazier, CC, Gardy, Robertson, Didi, Headley, Judge, Holliday, Bird…and many others. It’s an easy team to like…

    Feels like 1996. Go Yankees!!

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    Man, Game 2 of the ALDS in Cleveland was a crusher. To play for THAT LONG and not get the win. Brutal. And, Ronald Torreyes getting caught on the back pick at second? Inexcusable.

    Know what? It’s been a nice run. But, seriously, the Yankees are not in the same class as the Indians or Astros right now. Maybe in a couple of years it will be different. But, now? That’s a negative, Ghost Rider.
