Yankee fans chanted F Altuve in game 5.
Probably still feel that way.
Altuve returned the favor and gave them some anal.
The Yankees’ Decade of Almost: $2 Billion Spent, Zero Titles Won
It was a… strange reaction to giving up the season-ending home run.
His reaction looks as if he did it deliberately just to screw the Yankees. I mean why else would he throw slider after slider after slider when his bread and butter is his 100 MPH fast ball?
I think he was probably upset, just looked weird seeing the smile. I think he was having trouble locating the fastball right? Isn’t that what he was throwing when he walked the guy before Altuve?
Answer: they're one and the same.
Happy Day-After Yankees Elimination Day!
This is one reason why YED is a day to celebrate!
You'll never see that at Nats Park...
He has been forced to rely on the slider as a second pitch for quite sometime now, especially after having problems with his control by walking the previous batter.
When attempting to assess Chapman as a closer, one must take into account the effectiveness of the slider. It’s almost as much of a bread and butter pitch as the fastball, these days.
I agree with both of your statements.
You don't see that in Oakland when the Patriots come to town. That's bull****.
How many runs get scored tonight?
Guess I want the Nats ... but can't say I really care.
Just that it would be a nice story ... play ball.
Juan Soto is turning into a great story. Kid is not bad.
Inside the Soto-Cole showdowns that changed the World Series
Houston doing a face plant. Verlander looking at 0-5 in the World Series. Life is good. Not 2018 good, but still good.
Nats are going to sweep the Astros lol. Astros can't cheat against Washington since they are not rivals and don't have much Intel on them.
Far better to be the hot team than the team that looks great on paper. I thought the Astros were “heavily favored”.
Every analyst I've heard has been saying how lights out Verlander and Cole are and that they are the greatest pitchers of their generation. Verlander is now 0-6 in WS starts. Cole is 0-1. They act as if these guys are Randy Johnson, who is the greatest starter that I've ever seen.
Not even close.
That didn't age well
Nats are in a tough spot right now even though it's 2-2. If they don't win game 5 with Scherzer on the mound, then the series is likely lost. I do believe they can win a Game 6 with Strasburg vs. Verlander but a Game 7 will be tough.
At the speed of mediocrity in a vacuum
