Yesterday was a Janer, as we call it when an offense hits 10 or more runs in a victory. The score against the O’s was 15-3 – my kind of game. No stress. No nonsense. Just homer after homer. Clint Frazier is fulfilling the mantra of “guys will step up with all the injuries.” And Gary Sanchez is making up for all his defensive woes (except I still get mad when he makes errors). The boys needed a game like yesterday’s to at least boost their confidence after a dismal first week or so. Torres, in particular, has to feel good about the way he’s contributing. And all the offense has to alleviate some of the pressure on Judge to be the strong man.
Tonight’s matchup of Tanaka vs. Verlander should be a good one.
