The Yankees are going to finish with a better record than they did in 2017 and if the Red Sox didn't reach absolute peak bullshit in tyool 2018 we wouldn't even be considering the idea that this Yankees team isn't very good.

Ignore the record. It's meaningless. There are so many bad teams that there are inflated records all over the league. It's just blatantly obvious that they aren't playing well.... I don't know why there is an argument about that. They just lost a series to the frigging twins and almost got no hit by a terrible starter... Are people in here blind?

There can only be exactly one good team in the MLB at any given time. Any signs of a team doing well, like stats, wins, losses, etc. are bullshit.

yeah, Boston got off on a historical run and buried us in August. In a normal year where the competition isn't outright bad in almost every division we're probably a bit closer

They’re a good team, but as Lindsey Adler wrote in the Athletic today, they definitely look like the “worst best team” in baseball and that it’s concerning that they’re “still working on stopping the bleeding from any one appendage on any given night.” And I guess that’s what is frustrating.

but that is how baseball works. Its a 162 game season and teams go through peaks and valleys. This team is on pace to win 100 games and that is absolutely insane for where this team was supposed to be at 2 years ago.

They’re actually 6th now. If they lose HFA, they’re probably switching places with the A’s, who are in 8th.

Just bought tickets to the game tonight on a whim. Does anyone know what time batting practice takes place? The stadium opens 3 hours before game time on Friday night games, but I can't get out of work and make it there by 4. I was wondering what time I could realistically show up and still catch some batting practice.

He projects some sort of baseball mashing field effect, but he can't legally have it turned on while he's on the DL.

I picked a good game to go to! :neckbeard:

I was in the first row just inside the right field foul pole. Got to see Judge come back up close and I was able to spot myself on TV for the first time, so I'm basically famous now.

So do we all agree that guy who hit judge should in fact catch a battery considering our post season is in jeopardy? I don't think we would be in the situation we were in if judge didn't get hit.

Guys, if we only look at the at-bats where our hitters didn’t get on base, you’ll see that we really lost that game 1-0 and you should be furious.
