What a great road trip the Yankees had. First they took on the Angels – or, should I say, took down the Angels – and then came the Astros. I admit, I had my doubts about how they would do against the World Champs who have managed to beat them consistently, but wow. How about the way they kept coming back from the jaws of defeat to notch those wins?
Severino was a star. Tanaka, CC pitched well. German filled in admirably for the ailing Montgomery. (I do think Cashman will need to go out and get a seasoned arm; there’s nobody outstanding in Scranton to save the day.) Gleybar Torres has made his presence felt. Sanchez’s home run power can’t be denied (didn’t love the passed ball yesterday though). Stanton awakened. It’s all good, and the Yankees are now a very good team, give or take a few weak spots. Oh, I forgot to mention that Chapman got save after save, firing fastballs at full velocity.
So bring on Cleveland. It’s supposed to rain tonight, but hopefully the game will be played. Go Yanks.
