Tip of the cap to Zimmerman. Two amazing outings against two  of the top teams in the league. Hoping he's back in form and we can count on this type of performance for a while.

Also, the sight of Rondon warming up and ready to blow this game for him again must have given him some kind of motivation to get himself out of this mess. lol!

Been raining out here on and off all day. I bet this rain stops but that would be sweet if they called it. Spare us all watching rondon blow a save.

My SiL is here watching the rain delay with me and I mentioned this. He'd never heard of it so I thought maybe some of the youngsters here had missed this moment of NYC baseball history.

How the Great Yankee Wife Swap Scandalized—and Changed—America

As America’s unofficial national pastime, baseball has traditionally steered clear of sex, America’s real pastime.

Even if Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle scored both on and off the field, the game long had a G-rated quality. Baseball’s virginity lasted until March 4, 1973 at 10 a.m. That’s when Mike Kekich announced his “wife swap” with another Yankee pitcher, Fritz Peterson. Baseball—and America—have yet to recover.

Peterson followed with a press conference at 4. They were switching it all—houses, wives, kids, dogs. “I have nothing to hide,” Peterson said, insisting “It’s not a smutty thing”—when everybody thought it was.

“Today, he smiles, explaining: ‘Actually, it was a husbands trade,’” Jim Bouton, the saucy, outspoken, former Yankee pitcher exclaimed. “I can see trading your wife, but the dog?”

Peterson now says he had no idea it would create such a sensation. The same changing attitudes that led these two travel-roommates to switch wives so publicly emboldened reporters to report the truth so sensationally.

Being 1/2 game out of first the Yankees will wait a looooong time to call it. Probably depends if they can get the field playable.

I wish the games weren't blacked out for me. Missed the head hunting in game one, the retaliation pitch, Kinsler's error and Adduci's amazing catch.

Really wish I had seen Greene's two nights closing as well. I know this is some blue and orange kool aid but if Zimmerman can regain his form and Norris becomes the pitcher everyone says he will be then this team might not be half bad next year.

And Anibal is pitching acceptably. JV Fulmer Boyd Zimmerman Anibal Norris. The starting pieces are there. The Bullpen pieces are there.

They just need some speed and fielding. I would sincerely consider cutting\retiring Victor. That would free up a bunch of lineup flexibility and unclog the basepaths

Just for fun go here

Now tell me where the Yankees lineup is markedly superior to ours? And they're competing in the East.

Living proof I'm exceptionally bored this morning.....now off for a long ATV ride.

I could actually live with this scenario for next year. Big assumption that JUp opts out but that rumor is growing stronger.

Strong starting pitching. Finally mixing some youth into the lineup. Versatile bench. Bullpen seems stronger.

Cuts the payroll by $65-70M with an additional $33M coming off after the 2018 season.
