Break Up the Yanks


Carlos Beltran hit his 400th career home run and Dellin Betances worked out of a jam. Brian McCann went deep as well and Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman were tough as the Yanks won another game and another series—7-5 was the final. A 7-3 homestand against the Red Sox, Royals and White Sox ain’t nothing to sniff at.

Of course, the moment of the day came in Texas when a little guy slugged Jose Bautista right in the face. I caught some of the talking heads on ESPN and the MLB Network. They were all fired up, talking big and loud. Amazing what violence does to excite us, even when we say it’s uncivilized and not good for the game and all that reasonable stuff.

Helluva punch. Expect it when you do a potential career ending take out slide.

Don't disrepect your opponents by flipping the bat. They have a long memory.

[3] Respectfuly disagree. Don't want a bat flip after a postseason winning tater? Don't give up a fat pitch then! Odor is a punk, has a history of brawling it seems.
