Fuck Trevor Bauer
First and foremost fuck this guy. I've never liked him. If he was on my team, I would love him. Let that be known right away. He's a psychopath. He looks like the kind of guy that flips the water cooler if it's not the right temperature. There's no doubt in my mind that his teammates walk on egg shells in the clubhouse on days when he starts. There's also no doubt in my mind that he was on his high school wrestling team.
He's pitched twice against us this year and won both starts. He faced Jaime Garcia on both occasions. They were the classic RISPFAIL yankees.
In the first game he gave up seven hits and two walks over 7 innings. Nine baserunners and the Yanks were only able to bring one of them in on a solo home run from Todd.
In his second game he gave up four hits and four walks and a HBP over 8 innings. Nine baserunners and the Yanks were only able to bring in one of them.
Today HAS to be different. We need to see the urgency and importance that we saw on Tuesday. Every at bat needs to be do or die. I think this Yankees team has flipped the on switch and isn't looking back. I'm pretty confident we get to Bauer today.
Sonny Needs to Eat
Sonny needs to eat up innings and the strike zone like he's CC Sabathia with a fresh box of Capn Crunch. No nibbling. No messing around. He needs to dominate and establish his presence on the mound and in the strike zone.
Can We Win?
The numbers for the Wild Card podcast just came in and they're awesome. We gained a lot of new listeners! If you are one of them, thanks for tuning in! Hopefully you stay with us for this entire ride. We will be recording post game podcasts for each game of the post season.
If you haven't listened yet, after the game Tuesday Jake and I talked all things Wild Card game and then looked forward to this ALDS and broke down the matchup and some numbers.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
