    And I like the way they’re doing it. Someone different is coming through in the key spots, and they aren’t relying on the long ball.

    Comebacks have been impressive

    .944 baseball is certainly not sustainable, but it's great to see this team win in so many ways. Gardy needed a night like last night with with 3 extra base hits. I wonder how long a leash Andujar has now that he's cooled off and Drury is closer to returning.

    Constantly having to come from behind isn’t sustainable either.

    But it’s a long season. A lot of things are going to happen before it’s over.

    Can't win 'em all. But, I'm convinced that Dellin should not be used for more than 1 inning if possible.

    The home plate umpire last night was terrible

    Boone has go to stop throwing Delin out there for 2+ innings.

    ^ +1 (esp. before the downpour). . The one where he rung up Glaybar Torres was brutal.

    Ditto.

    Finally I will head to a Yankees game after like 10 years. Taking my boys. Are nose bleeds behind home plate umpire terrible?

    I'll take the W, but it would be great if the Yanks didn't have to come from behind so often. I was expecting a loss when the A's loaded the bases with nobody out in the 9th, but Chapman got out of it unscathed. Gardy and Walker are heating up.

    The good news is that they're battling back and getting comeback wins. That's the mark of a special team.

    The bad news is that the bullpen and starting pitching have been erratic at times. Boone is asking for a lot of innings out of his relievers and you have to hope that their arms aren't falling off by September.

    The pen sorely misses Warren and Kahnle. But you're right, starters have to give some length. I wonder if Cashman gets a starter at the deadline. Gray has been unreliable so far and German is unproven. Top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield is now on the shelf in AAA and Chance Adams has been bad.

    Cashman almost has to pursue another starter, but who's available and at what cost? (Memo to Clint Frazier: keep your bags packed).

    Look at the starters. Severino had a big jump in innings last year and is on Verducci's list as candidate for the year-after effect. Tanaka's elbow is always a question. How long can CC Sabathia's body take the pounding? Montgomery's hurt. You've hit the nail on the head re: Gray and German.

    Severino- money
    Tanaka- unpredictable
    CC- good when on, but injury prone
    Montgomery- arguably the 2-3 starter
    Gray- Ed Whitson

    Matt I remember watching the regular local news a years ago and the sports caster said " if you have small children and live in the Bronx near Yankee Stadium you might want to keep them away from the windows of your house tonight because Ed Whitson is pitching this evening " PRICELESS
