The Indians Completely Shutdown the Yankees Last Night

Divisional Round - New York Yankees v Cleveland Indians - Game One

Last night sucked. Nothing good came out of Game 1 of the ALDS. Trevor Bauer’s curveball was dropping fucking six feet off the plate from the start of the game. He was locked in from the beginning and had a demeanor like no other that he was going to win this game. The Yankees offense came out flat as can be in a night they couldn’t afford it. Sonny Gray’s first two innings were ROCKY. He was lucky to escape the first unscathed and was extremely lucky to survive the second with just one run. Didi Gregorious made a great play to turn a much needed double play, but at the end of the day one run was enough to win this. Once New York went down 3-0, it was basically over.

Trevor Bauer didn’t give up a fucking hit until the sixth inning. You’re not gonna beat the Cleveland Indians when your offense comes out that flat. There’s just no way. Aaron Judge struck out in all four of his at bats while Didi, Bird, Frazier, and Hicks were all punched out twice a piece. It all sucked. There’s not much good to come out of this, and who awaits today?

Corey Kluber. Dear God. We’re facing a goddamn robot today. He’s the fucking terminator. He doesn’t know how to give up hits in October. I’m absolutely terrified. CC Sabathia needs to come out today and pitch like the stopper he’s been all year. He’s probably the one guy I want on the bump today. He’s been there before. He knows what this pressure feels like. Can we get six innings out of CC today? Gimme six goddamn innings. Then we can work with Chad Green, Kahnle, Robertson, and Chapman.


5:08 PM today. Come out to The Ainsworth on 33rd street between Madison and Park Ave. We’ve got $3 domestic beers, $4 wines for the ladies, and $5 well drinks. I’m gonna need all of you to rally together and get me this W. It’s Friday, it’s happy hour, it’s the Yankees in a must win playoff game. You better be there. Say “Hubbs” at the door and they’ll give you a wristband and bring you upstairs to the terrace. Yeah that’s right, we’re upstairs on the roof. Let’s fucking go. It’s a must win, be there.
