Haha I don't think anyone does. My point was only that if you focus on one aspect of his game and extrapolate stats over a season, the same should be done for all stats.

How in the world do you intentionally walk Jason Heyward with two out? Unless the bases are loaded you walk batters to GET TO Jason Heyward with two outs. Dusty Baker deserved to lose just for that.

Glad I was wrong. I had almost written the Yanks off after that devastating Game 2 loss, but Severino and Tanaka really picked them up in the next 2 games, and CC did just enough before Girardi made the decision to take him out at the perfect time.

On the Aaron Judge front, it was really frustrating to watch him at the plate from a Yankees fan standpoint, but it is encouraging to know that he is very capable of taking walks.

Even the Strikeout/Throwout that happened when he was at the plate in Game 5, should have technically been a Walk with men on 1st and 2nd.

He has an excellent eye and a patient approach for the most part. His biggest problem is he is so big and his strike zone tends to be so big that it gets him in trouble, especially with Umps behind the plate who often unintentionally extend his strike zone even bigger then it should be.

I think with his approach, he would be one of the best beneficiaries of a computer calling balls and strikes in the game, instead of an umpire doing it behind the plate. He could have confidence an outside force isn't going to the pushing the boundaries of his already huge strike zone.

Houston is also a great team. In a 7 game series the bullpen is going to have to be even better then they were against the Indians. Betances is going to have to get his sh*t together, because we will need him to be his occasionally dominant self this time around.

I thought the exact same thing.

Just Sayin':

Teams managed by Dusty Baker are now 0-10 in post-season elimination games...

Don't hold me to it, but as an old fart, I don't recall a postseason game in which both clean-up (that means fourth in the lineup) hitters were shortstops (NY at HOU today). Prove me wrong. Don't be shy. I bet I've forgotten 99 such games.




Wow, no response, and according to last night’s broadcast I am correct. Who knew? Even a blind squirrel can find a nut occasionally.




Still waiting for Joe Buck to thank me.

Hey Frank, only twice has the World Series winner used a batting order that featured the shortstop and second baseman batting in the 3 and 4 spots. One was the 1906 White Sox (G. Davis and Isbell). Can you name the other team to bat their SS and 2B third and fourth?

Sean,

Don't bother me. I'm watching the Kate Upton Show too frequently interrupted by the game and those pesky commercials.
