I knew Jamo had a game like this in him! That stat line looks beautiful, and yes I know it’s vs the Mariners:

 

7.0 IP, 4H, 1R, 1BB, 9Ks

 

Sidenote @Gordo rumors say your Phils are looking for a late inning guy? We got some arms. If Chapman doesn't shake out maybe we can ship him down I-95.

Thanks, but we already have a guy who throws 101 and is blowing saves.  Although Chapman is probably a much better fielder than Alvarado.  Hell, I could probably go down to the local ball field and find a Babe Ruth league pitcher who is a better fielder than Alvarado.

 

Cubs announcers sounding confused about Arrieta's pitching yesterday.  I'm thinking "haven't you been watching this guy over the past 2 years? And you've expecting him to improve?"  He's 35 years old and probably should have been pitching out of the pen 3-4 years ago.  Nice for the Phils to have a bit of a lift me up series before heading into Beantown.

I didn't watch the game last night and I just want to say I was very happy for him too. Shoot, I didn't know he was pitching. Now I hope he builds on it. And by the way the Mariners have a better record than the Yankees so this one was extra important.

Joey Gallo 10 HR's in 10 days.  21 HR so far but still K's a lot.  Ohtani another HR for 32.

 

The derby has become a showcase with a LOT of thump participating

What a comeback by the Fathers!  Love listening to the depressing tone in the Nats broadcasters when they go down.  Bad Natitude!!

 

And have a day, Brad Miller!!

Down 8 - 0 and they come back to win 9 - 8! A certain American League team that I know of would never had the backbone to do that. Good for the Padres. I am hoping they take the National League this year.

Daniel Camarena --- how would you like to have been him yesterday?  Mediocre reliever called up by the Padres.  .179 BA in about 30 plate appearances in the minors and you hit a grand slam against a premiere MLB pitcher. And look where the ball was .... a 96 mph FB out of the zone and he golfs it out!

Phillies need to focus less on the value of homer hats and the value of getting consistent starting pitching.

 

The Vince Velasquez experiment should have already come to an end.  He's a bullpen pitcher.

Gerrit Cole with a complete game shutout. 129 pitches and the last one was a 99mph fastball blown by Alvarez. Game of the Year candidate right there, *without* the sticky stuff.

They also made a big deal about looking more "interesting" in their red tops on the road. For any team, if you need to focus more on your look than your game, that's not a good sign.

It was a very interesting and exciting game yesterday down in Houston and I do have to give the Yankees a lot of credit for a good game all around. If I am not the first person to post negative things about them around here then I certainly am the second.

 

A big thing was made about Gerritt Cole’s complete game but that’s what pitchers were supposed to do before Tony Larussa and pitching coach Dave Duncan made a big *&%^$ deal about pitch counts when they were in Oakland. Soon it spread everywhere and you can’t get away from it. Teams copy other teams. You want another example? The Rays started this “opener” business and now other teams are doing it too.

 

Anyway, Cole had a three-hit shutout. Judge homered and after this afternoon’s game baseball heads to the All-Star break. It’s been a fast season so far. I’m hoping the second half brings Yankee fans something to cheer about like a nice, long winning streak.

Aaron Judge homers for the only run as the Yankees won 1 - 0 in Houston on July 10, 2021.

Hopefully Phils can move Alvarado by the deadline ..... He would look good in a [insert name of other team here] uniform.  Maybe it took all of this to find the possible closer in Suarez.  Nice to take the series in both Chitown and Beantown.

After yesterdays terrible loss I think Aaron Boone needs to explain himself. Why did he not let Chapman in the game in the ninth inning with a five run lead? I know he was struggling but again, it was a five run lead. We saw how that evaporated quickly.

 

And another thing. Am I to believe that there are no other outfielders that have been released by any other major league team that the Yankees can’t pick up to replace Brett Gardner once and for all? Or at least bring one up from the minors? There’s no one? Mike Tauchman was a trade that I didn’t get but he’s not exactly lighting up the Giants lineup when he’s in there (he is currently injured.)

 

But they can not find someone to maybe hit at least .250 instead of Gardner? That would be 56 points higher than his current average of .194. But go ahead, keep bringing him back year after year. The Yankees did the same crap with Bernie Williams years ago. They kept on bringing him back on one-year deals even though he was useless.

 

They lost because they were scared to go to Chapman.

 

They lost because they were 3 for 16 with runners in scoring position.

 

They lost because they left 14 runners on base.

 

Chad Green did not just lose the game yesterday all because of one bad pitch to Altuve. The entire team, just as they have been doing all year combined to lose this game.

 

What a fitting way to end the first half of the season.
