Re: The Streets of San Francisco A-Rod Rental Car Robbery Whodunit

Why do the Yankees continue to invest everything into their bats while perpetually ignoring their mediocre pitching? Have they learned nothing from their last two years of shortcomings? All those home runs look cute in the regular season until you run into the best pitchers in the league during the playoffs. It's inexcusable that they got no starting pitcher before the trade deadline two weeks ago.

Not really. They have the sons of DANTE and VLAD, but those two won't be enough to do anything to the Sox and Yanks. If having a future is watching two potential Hall of Famers then yes, there is a future. Both are so young a lot can happen around them too so you never know.

I'm not sure what they could've done really. No one knew that the Dbacks would just give away Greinke...except the Stros. It also could've been one of those deals where the Dbacks said give me X and the Yanks said nah and the Dbacks refused to take anyone else but X.

At any rate you need multiple aces to contend with the Houston staff. It's pretty stupid. NYY's only ace has been hurt all year. So even if they had traded for some starters, they probably still lose to Houston, and they lost prospects for nothing. Yankees are still really young. They got quite a few years to complete the starting pitching.

And you just need to play good enough to get to October. Then if you happen to be playing your best you can win it since small samples rule October.

We are on the same wave length about the Astros. I'm just afraid that the Yankees will show out all season just to get struck out when it matters and have no answer for it.

That's likely. Pitching usually dominates the post season.

Yankees don't have terrible starters. They aren't elite, though Paxton's K rate is certainly elite, but they can potentially be good enough to win a World Series if the bats aren't totally shut down. Of course compare them to the Dodgers or the Astros, then yeah, it's not great lol.

Will be attending Thursday evening's contest between the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics in Oakland. Anyone in the Bay Area can meet me there.

The Cincinnati Reds' Aristides Aquino, the Houston Astros' Yordan Alvarez, and the San Francisco Giants' Mike Yastrzemski, all rookies, all had three-home-run games within a week of one another.

Yastrzemski's three-homer game occurred Friday evening against the Arizona Diamondbacks, in a thrilling 10-9 11-inning slug-fest which I had to watch the late-night replay of, having been at the San Francisco Castro Theatre to see A Band Apart and Pulp Fiction.

Now the Giants must battle the Chicago Cubs beginning this evening. The Cubs are 3.5 games ahead of San Francisco in the NL wildcard race.

GIANTS

This game the GIANTS are playing against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field is astonishing.

11-10 GIANTS going into the Bottom of the 8th...
