Big win last night for the Yanks. Pitching has been superb, holding that Astros lineup to 5 runs in 3 games. Judge had a great night in the field, Sanchez continues to struggle behind the plate. At least 3 times last night I saw balls get by him for no reason. Two off the shin guard, one he just flat out missed. Luckily, there were no men on base. Girardi should think of starting Romine tonight and using Sanchez as DH. Sonny Gray is a low ball pitcher who likes to bounce the curveball for a swinging strike. If I'm Gray, with every pitch, I have to wonder if Sanchez will be able to block it. Not what you want your pitcher to be thinking about during a big game.

I agree. Sanchez needs a rest. Catchers get fatigued by this time of year. Posada would get tired by the playoffs and had mediocre batting numbers in the playoffs.

Posada post-season -

Note a drop-off in OPS as the post-season series progressed.

Didn’t realize they went back to the 2-3-2 format. Yankees have one more home game. With series tied at 2 the Yankees have a shot to repeat another upset series if they can win this game at home and take one on the road. I still expect the Astros to win this series.

Today is the game that decides the series imo. If Tanaka pitches like an ace that will be the difference. If he doesn't I feel like the Astros will take the series still. It is hard to believe we are even in this position though.

I think they need to get Kuechel out of the game as quickly as possible. That bullpen is terrible and needs to be taken advantage of. However, I think NYY can win two on the road. I still think HOU will win, but how can you bet against the Yanks right now??!

Disappointing finish against Houston but a great season for the Yanks and the start of a promising era.

As a Mets fan it pains to say that they have a great future and canít go wrong with a ALCS series finishing on a Game 7. I believe the Houston will win the WS.

Not only did the home team win every game, but neither team could score much in away games. Yanks mustered only three runs in four away games. Astros mustered only five runs in three away games.
Yanks actually slightly outscored (22-20) and outpitched (2.73-3.30) the Astros in the series. Astros fielding was better.

I got the Astros winning the World Series.

Should’ve probably placed a bet on them to win the World Series back in July when I told people they were going to win the WS.

I read that.
What do you guys think about Aaron (Blankin') Boone as manager?
I wonder what the backstory is about Girardi's dismissal.

A new "Murder's Row."

I saw Boone on TV, he communicates extremely well.

I feel like the issue with Girardi must have been communication. Usually when you replace a manager you concentrate on what he/she was most deficient at and you look for someone that is strong at that.

I should hope so...talking on TV has been his job the last several years.

Bottom line is nowadays, across the league, front offices do not want strong independent personalities as their manager. Managers need to be extensions of the GM's office and do his bidding and follow what the analytics say. They don't want the manager going with his gut or with a hunch. Doesn't matter if a pitcher seems to really "have it" on a given day and is throwing exceptionally well. If the analytics say he has to come out before going through the lineup a third time, he has to come out.
You're only young once, but you have your whole life to be immature!
