Yankee Stadium special on that one for Judge, who got the end of the bat on it and just muscled it out.

Unfortunate turn there for Señor Hunter, who's pitched a mostly-clean six (save that 4th).

The graphic listed Smith as 6' 0" / 185 ... Shyeeet, I'm 6' 0" and about 183 and he and I ain't anywhere near the same shape.

Four full minutes between the final pitch of Top 7 and the first pitch of Bottom 7 (double the proscribed time) all due to that whole GBA dog and pony show.
If they want to insist on doing that every game AND want it televised then they shouldn't get their two minutes of commercials, and if they are desperate to
run the commercials then they can still play GBA for the in-house fans.
But there's no reason why they should get to do both.

I mis-read it as 500 ABs rather than 600, that's where Rickey falls short.

Absolutely right FK. It's also a little unfair to the incoming pitcher who has extra time to cool down before warming up.

For a team that acts like it created tradition, I'm pretty sure that the PC Richards whistle didn't play when Whitey Ford struck out a batter.

If ball four hits the umpire's foot and bounces off to oblivion, shouldn't the runner be boogying to first and thinking about second?

Definitely--maybe the catcher can't find the ball.

Blevins up and available. Whenever I start thinking maybe Terry deserves another year he does something like this.

Terry fucks it up again by giving Robles a 2d inning when it was a fucking miracle that he got through one. Of course, a righty was leading off so there was no fucking way that Terry would put in Blevins and instead he puts the pitching version of the Trump presidency in and he throws a nothing pitch and MFYs have the lead.

This park, too.

We're going to have Reyes pinch-hitting for Smith in the ninth.

Just got here. Did any of the announcers mention that Amed Rosario tonight became the best shortstop to ever play in YS III? (or YS II for that matter).*

Leave in the garbage righty reliever because a righty is up: HR
Put in the solid lefty reliever because a lefty is up: out, but take him out and
Put in a mediocre righty reliever because a righty is up: HR.

I cannot wait for Teufel or Geren or Lopez or literally anyone else to start managing this team.

Everyone in the stadium knew that a second inning of Robles was a bad idea.
