Only batter worth anything right now on the Yankees is Jeter. A-Rod and Granderson look like minor leaguers lost at the plate against major league pitching.
Speaking of looking lost at the plate and like a minor leaguer (just like he did against the Yankees) how about Bryce Harper and his .056 batting average (1-18 w/ 6Ks). He has become totally irrelevant in this series. Machado hasn't done too well either, but at least he had a homerun to give the O's the lead.
It is exciting to see so many Game 5s!

He pitched an outstanding game like all our other pitchers have this series. I would have never thought the problem would be hitting but it has been this series. All these games are coming down to the wire and I think we just need to play small ball. Get a leadoff single, steal, then bunt to 3rd...man on 3rd with 1 out. Leadoff double, just bunt over to 3rd. Man on 3rd with 1 out. All these games are low scoring and are being decided by a run. Just my take on the Yankees. Would type a lot more becauae I have a lot to say but I'm on my phone in bed about to go to sleep lol.
