    I gotta say, Juan Soto is freaking unbelievable. Hal and Cash cannot let him get away.

    I can see the Yankees having two franchise players in Soto and Judge, who, BTW, is finally tearing it up, currently at the expense of the Astroids.

    Why do we keep pitching Kimbrell in the ninth inning.

    Best line I've heard about the Reds all year. "They have more MRI's than RBI's"

    I can't believe the season is 1/4 over already.

    Especially since I haven't really dialed in yet because of the basketball and hockey playoffs.

    I watched a bit of the NBA finals last week for the first time in decades. I saw the last five minutes of one of the Knicks games. Those five minutes lasted about a half hour and, thus, reminded me why I simply cannot watch the sport anymore.

    ^ Wait...You're the biggest Baseball fan on the board, but you can't watch the NBA because...It's too slow?

    I don't mind slow, suspenseful sports. I hate the foul-stop-timeout-freethrow, foul-stop-timeout-freethrow, foul-stop-timeout-freethrow, foul-stop-timeout-freethrow.

    Basketball is also a very simple game compared to baseball.

    What would the Classic LaRussa version be?

    Time Out - Pitching Change - commercial - at bat - Time Out

    something like that....

    That's why we now have a three-batter minimum for pitchers.

    Gotta be tough to be a Pale Hose fan. I just learned that they are trying to win their third game in a row ... for the first time in TWO YEARS.

    I gotta say, Aaron Judge has certainly come back after a dismal April. He is on an incredible tear. In two games against the Twins, he had an HR, five doubles and a walk. His two outs were both against the wall. Tonight he leads off with another HR. 433 feet. He hit one 467 feet the other day. His OPS had now surpassed Soto's over that 20-game span, hitting .400 right now over his last 18 games. He was at the Mednoza line. He's now up to .267.

    Soto was their MVP in April. Now he's getting cold and Judge already owns May. Can't wait 'til they're both raking at the same time.

    If he finishes an inning only facing one batter he doesn't have to pitch the next inning.

    I know that. We're referring to LaRussa's constant pitching changes, which can't be done anymore like that.

    If O's game gets postponed today they will be five unplayed games behind the Yankees.

    Key words being "behind the Yankees."

    Guards roll on. Offense is much better this year. More home runs, and over 40% of their runs this year have come with 2 out. That's an astounding figure to me, and won't hold up, but I don't really care when they score, as long as they do. They haven't missed a beat with Steve Kwan out, and he's the engine that makes the team go. The pitching has been very solid, especially considering the loss of Bieber for the year, and their top young pitcher from last year, although he should be back soon. I've watched more baseball this year than I have in years, and so far, it's been fun. We look like a real contender.

    Boone, arguably, lost the last two games for NY with his terrible bullpen management.
