    well it looks like Boston is going to win the East.Winning the last 2 nights in extra innings and on Friday in extra's as well.Friday Tampa closer blows the save.tuesday nite they were down 6-0 and win the game,and last nite win on a wild pitch. lol Yanks can't catch a break,Definately leery about a 1 game playoff cause this offense tends to fall asleep at times and anything can happen in one game...see what happens

    No, but remember old timers day, they were older than that. They couldnt really run anymore.... Where, the guys you are talking about can probable still play. Well, I hear you, its for the kids anyway, they probably love it...

    One of the nicer things is they continue to bring back the wives of Yankees that meant a lot to the franchise.

    Most of the greats from the 70s are too old too Come out or are gone.
    But its still nice to see them get the love from the stadium fans. Not too many greats from the 80s. Those 90s guys like Onneil and Jimmy key
    Cone Jeter Tino ECT are what changed their culture so they should be honored

    LW - Cone, Oneil ... they are in their 50's!!! Think of it this way ... in the 70's Mantle was in his 50's. Old timers day may not seem like old timer's to you ..... because ... YOU are old! Not poking fun at you ... I am in my 50's too!

    Good win last night, Tanaka better, still don't trust him. Judge looked good, anyone notice this thing they're doing in the dugout? Everytime a player hits a hr or gets a big hit they all giving him the "thumbs down" I think its great. This group knows how to have fun. Bird pinch hit, just missed a hr in the 8th inning.

    I agree in a shorten series anything is possible. It comes down to whoever has the best pitching. I also agree on the hot streak that the Dodgers had and now their last 20 or so games there record is putrid. The Indians are having an incredible run and I agree at some point this too will end and it might come at the worst possible time. We shall see!!! The Yankees are playing pretty well but I am not sure how they match up with the 3 contenders especially the Astros.

    If anyone has blown their load it may be Cleveland. Amazing winning streak, but I think it will cost them.

    LA was cruising along and looked what has happened to them. Anything can happen in a 5/7 game series. I think its wide open right now.

    Third base will be manned by Machado, problem solved. I still think you give Bird a shot at first base. I am worried about Judge though, he needs to adjust. Hoping he can and he is a cornerstone for franchise for years.

    Unless they blow their load now. I think it's gonna be all Cleveland this year.

    I'm just glad that the Yankees are making it interesting to the end..

    One good thing about the yanks, you know that Cashman will try to fix the problems that they have. Like at third And possibly our injury prone first baseman.

    I dont think they will win the division but they can beat anyone in a one game playoff. But anyone can beat them also.

    I know they won today that's the bottom line but this offense is going to hurt them in a one game playoff.They need to win the division,Today bases loaded and one out Girardi has to pinch hit for Romine there.You have Judge,Holliday,and Bird on the bench...could have put that game out of reach.Then they get first and third and no outs and do not score

    I'm a long time Yankee fan. And I hate both sterling and Waldman. Especially Waldman with her annoying Boston accent. Michael Kay sucks too.

    I learned Yankee history with Mel Allen. He told a story as the game went along, talked about all the Hall of Famers, their days of glory and days of despair. Made you feel like family.
    His first game as Yankee announcer was Mickeys rookie year so he saw a lot and read about babe, Gehrig, Keller.
    Man those Old Timers Days were great there were maybe 40 HOF guys on the field, all teams.

    I grew up with the same guys.. So, I cant stand the yank radio people. Gotta respect Sterling but to me, he is horrible. Waldman sucks.

    I grew up on Scooter, Bill White and Frank Messer. I like the current group too. I also love JOhn Sterling. The radio guys before Sterling were dreadful.
