    Nice and smooth swing. Is it just me or do the home run balls seem to be going farther in empty stadiums. The home runs the Yanks hit during the three games with the Mets were monsters. OFC

    Stanton and Judge looked in great form, but man I believe opposing pitchers have figured out that if you throw sliders on the outside of the plate, you can strike Sanchez out every at bat. I can't believe that he doesn't realize that. He seems to go through stretches where he can't lay off the slider. But hey GO YANKEES!!! I am a big yankee fan!!!!!

    He goes for that pitch everytime and until he learns how to stop swinging at it if I'm pitching to him that's the only pitch he's seeing. OFC

    Garrett Cole is a fabulous pitcher. Every fastball is 98 MPH with movement. The ball seems to flutter

    Dr. Anthony Fauci is 79 years old, respected, smart, healthy, etc etc. Please forgive me for saying the obvious. If you are throwing out the first pitch, you must toss the ball in the general direction of the catcher.

    It is my understanding that he was an excellent basketball player in his youth.

    A fun Braves/Mets game this afternoon. Down to the final strike, Ozuna hit a HR to tie the game for the Braves, and they won in the 10th. I love starting extra innings with a runner on 2nd base

    I'm glad that my Fauci post wasn't considered offensive. He ran to the mound like an athlete. There are so many comical first pitches that it makes me shake my head. Let the celebrity take a bow and let someone else throw the ball

    It’s my understanding that was one of the most unathletic things I’ve ever seen

    Yankees took the first two games of the series against the Red Sox. Rather significant in a sixty games regular season

    The Braves are looking good. Toussant started last night and gave them four scoreless innings. Soroka and Fried are pitching well. They need at least one more reliable starter

    Judge with 6 bombs in 8 games. Torres has yet to get going.

    hart2 chesson, I didn't see it, but I read that Soroka suffered an Achilles tear. He's only 23. Very strange
