The Yankees Seem To Be Looking For A Manager Who Doesn't Exist The Yankees Seem To Be Looking For A Manager Who Doesn't Exist

Nearly two weeks after the Yankees decided to let manager Joe Girardi walk, nothing has emerged to make their decision seem any less confusing than it did at the time. Some fresh commentary on the situation from general manager Brian Cashman did nothing to clear it up.

Let's Remember This Deion Sanders Inside-The-Park Homer Let's Remember This Deion Sanders Inside-The-Park Homer

Tony Romo dropped a minor burn on Deion Sanders during the CBS broadcast yesterday, noting that Kansas City’s Marcus Peters “makes Deion Sanders looks good at tackling.” Sanders responded on TV with a Stephen-A.-inspired monologue.

Why Fire A Winning Manager? Why Fire A Winning Manager?

News just broke that the New York Yankees, a team that well exceeded expectations this season and made it to Game 7 of the ALCS, have fired manager Joe Girardi. Based on a statement Girardi gave to WFAN, this does not appear to be a mutual parting.

Yankees Fail To Win 41st American League Pennant; Astros Win First

The Houston Astros are headed to their second World Series after claiming the American League pennant for the first time, downing the Yankees in the ALCS’s deciding seventh game 4-0 thanks to five shutdown innings from starter Charlie Morton, some well-timed defense, and Lance McCullers Jr. shredding any hopes for a…

The Astros' Bats Continue To Lie Weirdly, Sadly Dormant The Astros' Bats Continue To Lie Weirdly, Sadly Dormant

The Yankees are just one game from the World Series after tonight’s 5-0 win over the Astros—thanks to another strong starting pitching performance, sure, but also to Houston’s sudden and near-total impotence at the plate.

Aaron Judge Is A Hero Again Aaron Judge Is A Hero Again

Aaron Judge, the Yankees’ young superstar slugger and potential MVP, had been having a pretty worthless postseason at the plate. Despite his team’s success, Judge only notched one hit in the entire ALDS, and he’s been mostly anonymous against Houston, only coming out of his shell for a home run in Game 3 when his team…

Aaron Judge Jumps And— Aaron Judge Jumps And—

Large Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge made quite the catch in the top of the fourth inning tonight, crashing into the right field wall to snare a deep fly ball before tumbling over backwards:

Astros Take 2-0 ALCS Lead On Carlos Correa Walkoff Double

Carlos Correa accounted for both of Houston’s runs, hitting a fourth-inning solo homer and the walkoff double that drove in José Altuve as the Astros took a 2-0 series lead on the Yankees in a game that saw Justin Verlander pitch a complete game with 13 strikeouts.

Bad Child Spared Demonization By Replay Call Bad Child Spared Demonization By Replay Call

Reasonable people may disagree about whether spectators should be bringing baseball gloves to professional baseball games. Is it lame? Probably not, so long as you are a child. But even if you are a child, there is one thing you for sure should not be doing at a professional baseball game: you should not be reaching…

Didi Gregorius Keeps Getting Better Didi Gregorius Keeps Getting Better

Corey Kluber was great against eight out of nine Yankees last night. To those eight hitters, over 3.2 innings, Kluber gave up one hit, and he struck out six. In the biggest game of the year, he was almost fine. The problem was, one guy was a big problem for Kluber: A 27-year-old shortstop from Amsterdam, one who spent…

Aaron Judge Looks Lost Aaron Judge Looks Lost

The Yankees managed to erase a 2-0 series deficit and advance to the ALCS, which is great news for Yankees fans and even better news for Aaron Judge, who has a lot less attention on him today than he would if the Yankees had fallen last night.

So Is Corey Kluber Hurt, Or What? So Is Corey Kluber Hurt, Or What?

Corey Kluber’s shortest start of the season came in Game 2 of the ALDS. His third-shortest start game in last night’s Game 5. In between, his second-shortest start of the season, was a May 2 outing in which he was pulled after three innings with a lower back strain, with which he was placed on the DL and missed a…

Brett Gardner Works Brett Gardner Works

For the length of 26 batters, from the moment the Indians chased CC Sabathia from the game in the fifth and got the Cleveland crowd back into things, until the moment Brett Gardner worked—and there is no better word than worked—an epic at-bat in the ninth, Game 5 of the ALDS was about as tense as games get: A…

Cleveland Beaten By Yankees And By Themselves Cleveland Beaten By Yankees And By Themselves

The Indians’ catalogue of postseason failure is fairly lengthy, but it is not especially varied. There are, after all, a lot of different ways to lose—blowouts and gentle fades and attempted comebacks that can’t come back enough. But Cleveland’s recent history of loss here is almost exclusively defined by singular…

Here, Enjoy Some Wire Photos Of Aaron Judge Robbing A Home Run (And Ballhawk Zack Hample) Here, Enjoy Some Wire Photos Of Aaron Judge Robbing A Home Run (And Ballhawk Zack Hample)

Aaron Judge won the world’s adoration earlier tonight for denying manchild ballhawk Zack Hample a baseball. (It also kept the game scoreless, but who cares about those details?) Here are some more wire photos of the catch for your enjoyment:

Aaron Judge Robs Home Run, Denies Zack Hample Baseball, Is Officially World's Greatest Athlete

Aaron Judge snagged a Francisco Lindor fly ball just above Yankee Stadium’s short right field fence, but that feat pales in comparison to the act of humanitarianism that was denying ballhawk Zack Hample yet another baseball he doesn’t need.

You Are Not A Catcher, Joe Girardi You Are Not A Catcher, Joe Girardi

That last night’s Yankees-Indians game continued for more than six innings after Lonnie Chisenhall’s phantom hit-by-pitch should not distract you from the fact that this was the moment of the game. It was. Right there, with two strikes and two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Yankees were on the cusp of…

Cleveland's Pitching Got Things Done Cleveland's Pitching Got Things Done

Cleveland’s decision to start Trevor Bauer in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Yankees tonight and hold ace Corey Kluber for Game 2 was slightly unorthodox, but the logic behind it was sound: They knew that their opponent would have just used up their best starting pitcher in the wild card game, meaning that they…

Joba Chamberlain Wraps Up One Of The Stranger Baseball Careers Joba Chamberlain Wraps Up One Of The Stranger Baseball Careers

Joba Chamberlain, after parts of 10 big-league seasons with four clubs, hasn’t pitched since July of 2016, and now says he’s done.

Last Night's Game Was Good But Way Too Long Last Night's Game Was Good But Way Too Long

Did you stay awake for the entirety of last night’s Twins-Yankees game? Are you still feeling the pain this morning? Last night’s game was good, and featured great plays, great action, and a stunning performance by the Yankees bullpen. It was also way too fucking long, and was a good reminder that October baseball is…
