ALDS 1 Game Recap and Game 2 Preview:

WOW WHAT AN AMAZING GAME 1! 4 HR’s including a Stanton Grand Salami and and emphatic win to take the 1-0 ALDS lead!

MLB Tonight HEATED New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays Game 2: Yankees Leads  Series 1-0, Who Win ? - YouTube

Cole was great again going 6 dominant innings allowing 3 runs on 2 BS cheating HR’s (I say this as both came on pitches or fly balls statcast said could not be hit or had 0% chance to get out)!

The Bullpen dominated including Cessa for the 9th.

OF Clint Frazier, C Kyle Higashioka, OF Aaron Judge, and DH/OF Giancarlo Stanton all respectively hit HR’s with Stanton’s coming in the 9th with the bases juiced for a game ending statement.

The Yankees are 100% a roaring monster!

It is worth noting however that 3 of the Yankees HR’s including the slam, as well as Choi’s do not get out in TB’s crap heap called the Trop. The games being in SD is burning the Rays as I predicted!

Green and Britton delivered dominant scoreless frames proving they are in it to win it!

DJ with 2 more hits as well. What’s new from the Batting Champ??

Look out for the roaring monster from the Bronx as the Playoffs move on as they are determined and will not be stopped! They want #28!

For game 2 we have the following pitching matchup:

ROOKIE RHP Deivi Garcia in his 1st ever post season start.

Going against…

RHP Tyler Glasnow who has been horrendous in his career in the ALDS going 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA in 2 starts.

I don’t see anyway he controls or does much at all against the Yankees roaring monster of an offense! He’s toast!

I have faith in Deivi Garcia pitching very well tonight. He’s a great young pitcher out to show how good he can be.

As the TBS announcers said last night he is a 4 pitch pitcher with a FB in the 92-93 MPH range but will hit 95+ MPH every now and then topping at 96.3 MPH this year.

HIs other pitches are Curveball, Slider, Changeup. Classic for a 4 pitch pitcher.

As for the Lineup. Yesterday it looked like this:

  1. 2B DJ LeMahieu
  2. RF Aaron Judge
  3. CF Aaron Hicks
  4. 1B Luke Voit
  5. DH Giancarlo Stanton
  6. 3B Gio Urshela
  7. SS Gleyber Torres
  8. LF Clint Frazier
  9. C Kyle Higashioka

A very interesting lineup tat easily scored 9 runs and could’ve scored more HOWEVER there will be changes for tonight’s game 2.

1st will be at Catcher as Gary Sanchez starts there.

Then we most likely will see Brett Gardner inexplicably stealing AB’s from Clint Frazier who 100% deserves them! This is inexcusable!

Finally I can 100% see Mike Ford at 1B to get a power Lefty bat against Glasnow. Just my gut feeling…

Today’s lineup could look like this:

  1. 2B DJ LeMahieu
  2. RF Aaron Judge
  3. CF Aaron Hicks
  4. DH Giancarlo Stanton
  5. 3B Gio Urshella
  6. 1B Mike Ford
  7. SS Gleyber Torres
  8. C Gary Sanchez
  9. LF Brett Gardner (HEAVEN FORBID)

I would far rather Sanchez be 9th with Frazier playing though…

I see a game 2 win coming and if so the series if over with post season ACE RHP Masahiro Tanaka going game 3 for the Yankees.

My score prediction (no I never saw 9-3 coming last night as I predicted a 5-1 Yankees win) is this:

Yankees 10 Rays 2.
