Greg Bird hit one, Aaron Judge robbed one, and the Yankees lived to fight another day.
Brad Peacock vs. Doug Fister in Boston, and Carlos Carrasco vs. Masahiro Tanaka in New York.
New York chased Corey Kluber early and then Cleveland mounted a comeback, thanks in part to Joe Girardi.
Drew Pomeranz vs. Dallas Keuchel in Houston, and CC Sabathia vs. Corey Kluber in Cleveland.
The Yankees had to go into Thursday night thinking they might steal one. They didn’t.
Chris Sale vs. Justin Verlander in Houston, and Sonny Gray vs. Trevor Bauer in Cleveland.
On the 30th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. mix up the format in order to talk about Cleveland’s surprising 21-game win streak and the moves and deals that brought them to this point. (Also, they argue about the respective merits of Yandy DÃaz vs. Giovanny Urshela. It’s a good show anyway.)
Esto es lo que le faltaba a Cleveland: un poderoso bate detras del plato.
Just what Cleveland has been missing: a potent bat behind the plate. How extremely convenient.
On the 22nd episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. and Bryan are joined by BP’s Jarrett Seidler to talk about the biggest post-deadline deal (Jay Bruce to the Indians), the callups of Dominic Smith and Amed Rosario, and … whatever the Mets’ plan is for 2018!
