Them boys in Boston are a closer away from being pretty good.

Never, ever bet against Cora. The dude a magician with his roster.

Hey now, those are my guys. I'm happy to see them back to what was norm for me when I was a wee lad. I don't know why, but I can still tell you the staring lineup of the 61 Yankees.
1B Skowron/Pepitone
2B Richardson
SS Kubek
3B Boyer
LF Tresh
CF Mantle
RF Maris
C Berra/Howard
P Ford

My dad was 12 years old in 1961.

Yankees could win 120 games and then bow out in the playoffs. After they beat the Twins. They're very good, obviously, but it gets tight when it boils down to a seven game series. 2021 ATL proved the regular season doesn't define October.

Once you get to October, throw it all out the window. The sampling shifts to a few weeks. It's almost unfair.

I'm sure the Yankees will go all in by the trade deadline. they'll get whatever they think they need to make a serious run.

yeah the red sox are really hot right and right back in the wild card race. sucks that they had to get off to such a bad start or they would possibly be giving the yanks a run for the division

You still not looking? Red Sox will have AL’s 3rd best record once we pass Toronto’s .5 game.

Understood but not worried…bad starts happen. Yanks can have the division…in the wild card era that’s like kissing your sister in the AL East. Who gives a shit?

Actually kind of hope they do pull away b/c that means they’re beating up in TOR and TB. The ring is what Cora gives a shit.

Get us a closer and we’ll be right there in the end. Chris Sale, maybe….??? John Smoltz style?

And who has the best? lol

Yankees get another come from behind win (most in the majors.) last night against Houston. With two outs, Judge delivers a 3-0 single to bring in the winning run. The guy is going to get a massive contract after this season. Steinbrenner and Cashman better write that check.

Some more happened with the Braves/Dodgers and Freeman. He made another comment today in his press conference. But you could see and hear the hurt in his voice.

I know sure do miss him in Atlanta Braves uniform. Freeman is having an off year but still better the Olsen.

Lol is right. Hope you all keep it too.

Cora owns “Fucking Boone”.

4 losses in June, thus far. Tomorrow’s game is dated the 26th.

Handling business outside the division. Need to start winning now within.

Friendly wager…

Unless Houston gets in the way, we know the Sox and Yanks will postseason again. Winner or who goes further is owed lunch. All you can eat Ponderosa is closed, brother. Look elsewhere. ;) I’m not doing Dale’s either, fyi

Harper got hit by accident and then acts like a complete prick. One reason he'll never be on of the greatest.
Greatest? Never thought about Harper like that, but I guess he does have a couple MVPs. HR leader in the league once or twice too, I think.

I’d take Mookie Betts or Dwight Evans over him everyday though.

Harper eventually got up. He shook as he held his thumb. Frustrated, he shouted at Snell. The two have known each other for years. They texted each other during the game. Harper said they are fine.

"Obviously, I felt terrible hitting him,” Snell said. “We've talked; we've handled it. It was never anything. It's just emotional. He plays with a lot of passion, and I can understand why he'd be upset. I'm just as upset as he is.”
I saw the video and didn't see anything malicious from Harper. He was obviously pissed off because he knew right away it was bad. Judge for yourself.



Harper was having one of the best seasons of his career to this point. Sucks for him, the Phillies and the game overall.

Harper is one of those guys few people look upon with any objectivity. People tend to lean toward not liking him.

So right around the start of June my Halos were 11 games above 500,… with June coming to a close they are 5 games under,… what a nightmare of a month or so

Agreed. He’s obviously fiery but I’ve never understood the animosity towards him. I wonder if it goes back to all the hype of him coming into pro ball. From being on the cover of SI (which used to be a big deal) to his quick rise from HS>JUCO>MiLB>MLB, he’s been in the spotlight a long time. I’d take him on my team in a heartbeat.

Already down 1-0. Season is lost if the RedSox don’t start winning within the division.

Last night’s loss hurt. The 7th walk off loss that Boston has gave up so far this year. The closer issue is real. Although, I will note that we’d have faired better last night if Canada didn’t have socialist vaccine policies. Been really nice to have had Houck last night.
