Great game, Verlander looked shaky at the start but settled down and shut Yankees down. Really hope to see Altuve get over his slump 0 for 18 at some point you know he will bust loose

No clutch hitting.
One big mistake.

Taking too many in the strike zone ala Carpenter's last at bat. Goes after the pitch in the dirt.
Stanton not swinging the bat with man on 2nd, backward K after 3-0 count.
Small things adding up. Yanks not a very good road team.

The Yanks have Judge and a roster full of sub .260 hitters. Homers don't mean near as much w/o anyone on base, and they don't get enough people on base.

The Yanks remind me of an old man beer drinking slowpitch softball team.

Yanks in big trouble, but if the Stros follow their regular season pattern, they're due for a mini losing streak.

The Wankers meeting October expectations. Only the 3rd highest payroll this year.

Aaron Judge is the new Barry Bonds before the steroids. Great regular season, crap the bed in the playoffs.

More like Arod.

Can't hit good pitching. And in the playoffs, you're simply not going to face many teams' 4th/5th starter types.
