The All-Stud Game

Welp, the Yanks had a good first half, with room for improvement, in a league where the top teams are all lethal.

Tonight gives the All-Stud game. All these years watching and I rarely make it through the whole game, no matter what’s at stake. Maybe this year will be different—after all, it’s a long week with no baseball.

Never mind the raindrops:

Four More

The Yanks end this long first half of the season with four against the Indians in Cleveland. No easy task. And they both get right to it tonight with a nice duel—Kluber vs. Sevi.

Never mind the upcoming holiday:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Setting the Table

As the trade deadline gossip heats up, the Yanks are in the mix. They split the double header yesterday dropping the the first game (ugh). Tonight, gives the return of Masahiro Tanaka, our guy!

Never mind the frontrunners:

Double ’em Up

Yanks are playing a pair this evening in Baltimore after taking 2 of 3 from the Jays in Toronto over the weekend.

Long push here before the All-Star break (with congrats to the Bombers who made the squad). Since the Red Sox have decided, you know, not to lose anymore, it behooves our boys to have a strong showing this week—first in Baltimore then, four in Cleveland.

Never mind the the vacation plans:

Who Says You Can’t Win ’em All?

The Yanks coughed one up last night—couldn’t cash in on all those men they put on base—and well, sometimes, that’s just gonna happen. Doesn’t mean we have to like it. And hey, at least Belgium won, and seeing how my Ma is Belgian, that made up for it.

Here’s hoping the Yanks can snap back to it and still take this series.

Sleep Not

Welp, that was a fine way to end the weekend series. After Sonny Gray got banged around on Saturday it was gratifying to see the Yanks return the favor to David Price last night. Good enough for a lot of loud, beautiful sounding hits, and a series win.

It is still hotter n July hot here at the start of July with the Braves in town for three. These guys have been good. No time for the Yanks to get complacent.

Never mind the thermometer:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!
