    Longtime casual baseball fan here - getting to my first ever MLB game in the states in July when the wife and I visit some friends in Vancouver. We're ducking across the border for a few days and I'll be watching the Mariners v Rangers at T-Mobile park. Tickets right behind the catcher.

    Also getting to class-A minor league games in Portland and Vancover. Can't wait.

    Awesome, enjoy. I've heard that is a great ball park.
    If behind the catcher we might see you on TV.

    The Yankees are getting back to full strength. Judge is back in a week or so. Now just waiting on the return of some pitching. Back into first place (4th overall) with a sweep of the Rays.

    Judge homered today, one of 4 solo homers. 28 straight games for the Yankees with at least one home run. New MLB record.

    I think the Yankees all time record run of games with at least one home run ended yesterday against the Mets. I'll go check. Wait up.

    Guys I’m currently in my seat at T-Mobile Park.

    It’s pretty f**king rad.

    Mariners pulled it out of nowhere and two blokes who couldn’t get it out of the diamond all season smacked HRs.

    What a night. Bucket list ticked off!

    Yankees and Twins put on a crazy game tonight.
    14-12 Yankees way.
    Gregorious 5 from 5 at the plate.
    Yankees bullpen blew 2 saves and nearly a 3rd.

    Q: Yankees batters hit 7 doubles which makes me wonder what the record is.
    A: The St. Louis Cardinals have recorded the most doubles by a team in one game: they hit 13 doubles in a 17–13 win over the Chicago Cubs on July 12, 1931 (From "Wiki")

    10-7 Yankees over Twins.
    Happ on $17m/year is getting hit everywhere.
    The Yankees bats are going to drag the SP rotation into the post season kicking and screaming.

    The yankees starting pitches have had their worst cycle through the rotation in 80 years. Paxton 7 in 4 innings today, yesterday Tanaka went for about a dozen in 4 innings, Happ went for something like 8 in 3 on Thursday and CC Sabathia went for 8 in 4 the day before that.
    Horrid.

    The Yankees keep winning but it has become very clear that the Houston Astros will be big favourites for the American League penant because they have a far superior starting pitching rotation. The bats about equal each other out, but unless Severino comes back on fire and Tanaka and Paxton get their A games on then its just not going to happen.
