The Yankees Completed The Sweep Against That Little League Team From Queens, Now Lets Go To Boston

Flashback to Monday’s Rundown when KFC cuncelled the Yankees. I mean what could go wrong?

Oh how sweep it is. The Mets were who we thought they were and the Yankees bullied them this week like they were freshmen in high school. Normally I wouldn’t be so pumped for beating up on a team that’s as miserable as those fucks over in Queens, but this week was different. Does this look like the face of a man that single handily gave life to the New York Yankees?

Indeed it does. So yes, the Yankees official Twitter tweeting this out made my fucking day.

So let’s get into the game, things got started fast last night against Steven Matz. I mean this guy looked helpless on the mound and the red hot Gary Sanchez took advantage.

Over his last nine games El Gary is liquid supa hot fire hot going 13-32 (.406) with 5 homers and 12 RBIs. In his second at bat he swung at a ball near his eyes and almost put it out of the park, making Cespedes make a catch at the wall. Later in the game, with the bases loaded, Terry Collins took out Matz and inserted Chasen Bradford (who was definitely picked off the streets just to pitch in this game). Gary greeted him on the first pitch with a 107.7 MPH missile through the left side. The ball was absolutely scolded and if a player was in the way of the ball it would’ve just went through their body.

Gary really seems to like the month of August as you probably remember last year’s out of this world performance when he hit .389 with 11 homers and 21 RBIs. It’s pretty obvious Gary took to heart what Girardi called him out for. Defensively he’s been getting down much quicker and blocking balls like we hoped he would, but offensively he’s raised his game to a new level.

Luis Severino bounced back from his nightmare start against Boston with six and a third fantastic innings. He allowed just four hits, didn’t give up an earned run and struck out nine batters on his way to a victory. He even collected his first ever big league hit on a sacrifice bunt attempt that of course the Mets managed to fuck up. Sevy was ecstatic obviously.

Things got a bit dicey in the 9th after Bryan Mitchell failed to record an out, serving up a grand slam to Curtis Granderson making it 7-5. I thought for one fucking night we’d be able to give the pen a day off, but nope they had to get Dellin Betances up to get the last three outs. Fortunately it only cost the big guy 10 pitches as he dealt with the Mets fairly easily.

Now the Yankees head up to Boston for a big three game set. They sit four games back of first with a month and a half to go so the division is still in reach for sure, but two of three this weekend is necessary. After this four game stretch they’ve put a nice cushion between themselves and the other teams in the wild card hunt. Tonight, weather permitting, is a big one they need with Montgomery on the hill against Pomeranz. Tomorrow is Sale against CC so that probably won’t work out too well for New York and then Sunday Sonny vs Fister will definitely be in our favor. I’m optimistic the Yankees can take two of three this weekend and keep the momentum going.

Thank God for the New York Mets. Thank God for Kevin Francis Clancy.

P.S. Clem, you deserve better than this.
