Urshela: two errors, two runs. And, two more indirectly - in a way.

I would have thrown out that runner as a HS player - and I didn't have a great arm!

Not if that runner is the Toddfather.

Anyone else kind of bored by this series? Big arms. Big swings. Big strikeouts. Big homeruns. Poor defense.

This is a stupid statement. Never go full 1227. Never.


I don't like the short rest outings, and maybe the 5 game series made Tito panic a bit, but all 3 of those guys have their issues.

If that was expansive Comerica Park they were playing in, it would be Tomlin for sure, but Yankee Stadium is a little close for Tomlin. Salazar has had one good outing in months. Ever since the last two starts in the win streak, Clevinger has looked so hyper he seems like he's going to jump out of his own skin. Considered against the fact that Bauer's ERA against the Yankees this year was (and still IS, btw) around 1.10, I get going with Bauer. You should, too.

Bauer fell in love with his curve, he was a little tired, and the Yankees had just seen it a bit too often. I never anticipated the Urshela errors after the way he has played. The check swing that really wasn't in the second was a killer. C'mon.....

Kluber tomorrow, with something to atone for. I like our chances. Relax.

And Vasgersian shlobbing on a big pin-striped pole at every opportunity is the worst!! What a tool......


The poor defense and almost total lack of hitting at the top of the order have been the biggest disappointments for me.

You’d fire him before game 5? Brian’s a baller!

Posted this towards the end of the win streak. I guess I was sort of half right, because they still went 11-3 after the streak ended. Way to blow a 102 win season.

Lord, do they look flat (again).

I am not a Vasgerjian fan, but Smoltz is one of my favorites.

Flat as a pancake. Smoltzie's alright. He was a pretty decent pitcher, too.

I wish Lindor could have come up with a clutch hit there. Nothing worse than a rally killing double-play. Will need to come up with a big hit off of one of New York's big relievers.

How do you bat a 6'-8" whiff-o-matic in the 2 hole ?

The ump def helped Shaw in that last AB, but the 4K trifecta is a new MLB post-season record.

Yep. I can only guess he was pressing a bit too much after four straight singles and time slipping away. Anxious. Bet he wishes he had a do-over.

Another classic Cleveland choke job in the works. The 2 runs were just to give the fans unnecessary hope.

Wow. And, to think I cringed when I saw him take the mound. He did alright, he did. Got two innings to get at least one!

So much for the 2 hitter being a contact hitter to move the leadoff guy around.

That did seem strange seeing him batting second. I don't know where he normally batted, but I assumed 3,4,5. Yeah, that move didn't work.

C'mon you gotta get down on the ball. Spin nothing, that was lazy.

You have to start wondering about the DNA of this team at some point. Two straight years, when they got in pressure situations in the playoffs, the star players folded up like a tent.
