The New York Yankees tried to make a late 9th inning rally but it wasn’t enough as they fell to their arch-rivals, the Boston Red Sox 4-3 at Yankee Stadium. With the loss, the Yankees were eliminated from the postseason and the Red Sox move on to play the defending World Series champion Houston Astros in the American League Championship. Even worse, the Yankees had to watch the Red Sox celebrate on their home turf.
Yanks may want to invest in some starting pitching and guys that can hit for average, instead of feast or famine home run hitters.

On a day where the New York Yankees broke the single season record for the most home runs in a season by a team, a Boston Red Sox fan threw the home run ball of Giancarlo Stanton from the top of the Green Monster at Fenway Park and actually hit Stanton as he was rounding the bases. Stanton, realizing what happened, gave the fan a half-hearted salute. Whether the fan saw it or not is unknown, as security was escorting him out for his actions.
The New York Yankees announced today the activation of their All Star slugger Aaron Judge from the injury list. He has been out of the lineup since the end of July nursing a fractured wrist. There’s only one itty bitty catch…
Judge has not been cleared to hit. That’s right. The team announced that Judge will be available to play in the field as a defensive replacement or can pinch run, but still can’t swing the bat.
Then WHY are you bringing him back? He’s just an average fielder and doesn’t have a ton of speed on the base paths. Damn Yankees!
An umpire had to halt play last night during the New York Yankees – Chicago White Sox baseball game due to a moth flying into his ear. We kid you not. As play resumed, a clubhouse trainer was able to “yank” the fluttering critter from the ump’s ear.
No mothball jokes please…
