Holy crap, Donaldson with an absolute miracle of a catch.
Heh, whatever works for you. Three of the four guys NY sent to TEX in this deal are already in the majors, but I still think it was a good move, it just hasn't worked out.Gallo is a trainwreck. I blame JA and his constant lobbying for a Gallo trade before it ever happened.
This pitch, this is one of the best pitches I have ever seen from anyone.That pitch to K Torkelson was crazy, 98 with slider movement. Please don't break, Holmes.
1 hit shutout.
Yes. Very much yes.This pitch, this is one of the best pitches I have ever seen from anyone.
Clay Holmes' sinker might be my favorite pitch in baseball right now.
With Loaisiga out along with Chapman, and Green being done, I'm pretty OK if the Yankees want King in the setup role and are cutting down on the multi-inning work. Not that they are definitely doing that, but if King is good at it, being available to pitch more often for one inning at a time would be nice. Maybe get a few closing opportunities too, to cut down on Holmes' workload. Clark Schmidt can take his old multi-inning gig for a while and we can see how it all goes until Loaisiga and Chapman get back.Why does Holmes have to pitch? Why can't King just finish this? He barely threw any pitches in the 8th.
When I saw your post I assumed they were facing a lefty. Surprised to not see the hot hand in Carpenter in, particularly against a righty.Stanton sits but still Carpenter can’t get in, trying to get Donaldson going again:
DJ LeMahieu 3B
Aaron Judge CF
Anthony Rizzo 1B
Josh Donaldson DH
Gleyber Torres 2B
Aaron Hicks LF
Isiah Kiner-Falefa SS
Jose Trevino C
Joey Gallo RF
