On the right, for my Yankees, is Aaron Judge, at six feet eight inches.
Standing next to him on the left is Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros, at five feet six inches.
The tall guy on the right won Rookie of the Year last year, and came in second for Most Valuable Player.
The little guy on the left won Most Valuable Player.
Altuve’s amazing, and I cringe every time he comes to the plate against my team and kicks ass. But guys like him make the game great. It’s all about skills. It’s why a little annoying shit like me could play baseball, back before I got old and feeble and my liver fell out when I got up this morning.
Tonight, the Yankees struck out a whopping 17 times, made a pathetic 2018-leading FIVE errors in the same game, and yet still managed to mount a 9th and 10th inning comeback against the reigning World Champ Astros and win 6-5. Two rookies got two big hits in the bottom of the 10th with 2 out. The set up double came from 23 year old Miguel Andujar. The winning RBI came from 21 year old Gleyber Torres.
HOW ‘BOUT THEM BABY BOMBERS!!!!
THIS IS THE YEAR!
Gotta go put my liver back. It’s time for a drink.
