The Yankees and Rangers are the bright spots in NYC at this time.

Seated in section 311, it was nice to see CC regaining his old form. He was absolutely brilliant. Tyler Clippard made it interesting before closing the door. Hmm...Right number (42) but not quite the right guy out there in the 9th.

Yanks did have a lot of luck offensively. Two costly errors went their way. Nice to see Greg Bird get on base. He really needs a break out game to give his confidence a boost.

I'm at a point where I'm taking a break from caring about the Knicks until the lottery rolls around. Love my fantasy baseball team and the Yankees. That's it right now.

Really hope Bird is okay. That ankle seems to still be bothering him. He could barely jog to first tonight. Not sure why he's not on the DL

Aaron Judge with a modest 3 hrs 7 RBIs and .242 average. Not bad at all. He's learning to take what's there. He's not overextending or swinging at bad pitches.

I see him as a .240 hitter this year. If he can smack 35 Homeruns, 80 RBI's with an OPS at around .780, I'd be pleased

I think Judge will finish with 25 home runs 65 RBIs.

So funny but I find myself coming more and more to this site for this Yankees thread not the Knicks.
A new era or error?

Only reason I type in realgm anymore. We kinda created a mini-cult on this board.

So happy for Greg Bird finally getting untracked. Baseball is mostly a confidence game. I hope this is a sign that the offense will hit like we've come to expect.

Haha I was worried about him for a moment there. Hopefully his confidence is back and he can go back to what he showed in the pre season.

Yanks 2 young men, Montgomery and Serevino are the key to that rotation. They don't have to be world beaters but just put in quality innings and I think the Yanks will be ok.

I think Montgomery is mediocre. Can be a decent #5. Severino, more than anyone has the stuff to be a #1 or 2 on a staff. Just need that changeup going.

Montgomery doesn't have awesome stuff, but his ability to throw multiple pitches to both sides of the plate is a pretty big deal. Combine that with the fact that he's always had to outthink hitters for a while and then his FB took the tick to make it AAA/MLB level, means he continues to pitch like he always has.

I think he's going to be sneaky good. Gut feeling. A guy you are good with having as a #4, borderline #3

He reminds me of Drew Pomeranz a lot, actually. Decent #4-5 to have. Eat innings.

I've had a Severino infatuation since he was in the minors. Working with Pedro all off-season on the change up will be huge for him

Totally agree about Severino. He has that boom/bust vibe about him, but I think he figures it out. Worst case scenario he winds up in the pen and the Yankees make it a 6 inning game like it was with Nelson/Stanton/Rivera

Yeah, I like Montgomery a lot. Not in terms of a front line starter but he has 4 working pitches. In his first start, he was able to get out an inning unscathed with 2 outs, men on base, twice. He has poise and he knows how to construct an out.

Severino has 2 plus pitches but when he doesn't get the change up going, he over throws and in the 5th or 6th innings he gets chewed up. Last start, he did very well. He needs to string together a few starts just like that.

Girardi should have played Bird again tonight. One minor knock I have on Joe G. is that sometimes he's a slave to the splits. You've got a young player who finally broke out of a slump in a big way you should play him again.

Yep. I was going to mention this about Aaron Hicks the other night.

Think he hit 2 HR's in 1 night. Very next day hes on the bench. Im not even a big Hicks fan, he still needs to prove more to me. But you gotta keep the hot bats in the lineup.

But what a great winning streak for the team. Dont really have high expectations for the team this season, just nice to see them playing well. Especially the pitching staff. Seems like they all are competing with each other and no one wants to break up this string of good pitching.
The NBA is a Sawft league.
