    As a Yankees fan, I always figured finishing the season was going to be a miracle. Bracing for the worst.

    Judge has no regard for baseballs whatsoever

    Nobody wants more singles and fewer homers.

    They want more singles and fewer strikeouts.

    As far as Urshella goes, he's about a .310 hitter as a Yankee, so he's absolutely fine.

    What you don't want is a low team OPS+ or team OBP. They lead in the former and are 3rd in the latter. They get on base and then drive them in. Recipe for success. What you don't want is a high HR total, high K total and low OBP which isn't the Yanks.

    We've been hearing this for years. When they stop losing playoff games where they score once, I'll stop worrying about it.

    It's sports, I don't worry that much but...
    Yep and it's because of their high HR, OPS, and K totals and not because the high variance of results in a small sample size such as a 7 game series.

    For someone that has talked about advanced stats a lot on this board, its amazing how little you seem to know about statistical analysis or data science.

    But I'll stop being a smart-ass, sorry.

    The analytics say the Yankees are a good team. Please show me where I said they aren't.

    When people tell you in June "this team isn't hitting against the Astros" and then they don't hit against the Astros, maybe there's more to it than variance. Either that, or the variance has gone my way three Octobers in a row and I should play lotto.

    Since when is Christian Vasquez a power hitter?

    He's on that Chapman training regiment imo. Steroids kill covid.

    They’re 6-1 lol. This is with Sanchez basically being a zero and Gleyber not doing much.

    I mean would you rather be the Mets? Or the Red Sox?

    they hit 3 singles before urshella hit his bomb.

    They've been close.

    Also easy to forget that they've lost in the least 3 years to teams that got dinged for cheating.

    The Astros cheating goes beyond the video and trash can stuff too.

    He wasn't at the hotel? Uh....

    ...hope he's okay.

    Once he's okay then I'll feel safe with the normal LOLMets banter.

    My guess is it’s a PR move. My gut reaction is the former agent now GM wouldn’t be dumb enough to blast a statement out if he didn’t know where he was. I assume this is trying to get a leg up on a soon to be public spat.
