One of the can’t miss pregames of 2021 comes on Saturday night when the Yankees and Mets throw a little party at home plate! Some commemoration for 9/11 action, baby, and a little attempt to put behind what all of us New Yorkers and American’s alike had to endure on the shittiest day I have ever lived through! We never forget and tears will be shed on and off the field on Saturday, make no mistake.
So, we play baseball and it was cool to watch pregame on SNY tonight as they showed Al Leiter talking about getting the start in the 9/21/2011 game. The first game played after the shittiest day I have ever lived through! I am trying to keep my damn composure but it STILL HURTS, man!! and I just got choked up about it again a little and that is no f**king story… Shit hurts, man, and if you know me at all I am a damn Italian New Yorker… Does that about cover the emotional side of being here in NY for that DAMN DAY!
Anyway, all right, let’s see if I can get through the preview without any more emotional stuff.. yeah, GL Ej! I know. I will be the guy with my arms in the air watching the game with smiles, tears, and my people in the crowd. Mets and Yankee fans can come together for a minute, right? (I’m with the Dark Side in case you hadn’t caught on to that yet, I just watch both teams play every day because my wife is a Mets fan) Ugh, I know! LoL
The Yanks got off to a nice start scoring in the first inning after a Gardner triple and Judge knocking him in to make it 1 – 0 out of the gate. Keep in mind, the Yankees obviously lost Stanton at DH (or any DH for that matter) and had to put Montgomery in the starting lineup.
Side note: Taillon is still in a walking boot and could miss his next start, and Michael King was recalled to support the bullpen. Cole threw a long toss to test the left hammy twinge and said he felt all right and will throw a bullpen session tomorrow.
Aaron Judge apparently called an impromptu team meeting to get on everyone’s case and get some fire under some asses. During the Yanks pregame on Yes they showed clips of him talking about what he said to the team. “We’re better than this… We’re in a playoff battle… The time is now to step it up and finish the last 18 games strong”
So, that didn’t work out so well, as Jordan Montgomery completely lost control of the strike zone. Monty gave up 5 3rd innings runs, not helped a bit by a huge Gio Urshela error on a throw to home plate that Sanchez couldn’t reach with the bases loaded.
Monty came out for the 4th inning, got one out, and then Lindor smashed a bomb just inside the right-field pole. That was the last pitch he threw. He went 3 & 1/3 and hurled 79 pitches and then it was 8 – 2 Mets not too much later.
Corey Kluber gets the Saturday start for the Yanks, so buckle up sunshine! It might be another long day for the Empire! I see the Mets at +110 and can’t believe the Yankees are favored again. We have to fade the Yanks until they give us a reason not to.
The Mets have no problem watching the Yankees struggle to hit because they too are in a playoff battle. With every loss either of these two teams endures, the farther away that post-season appearance looks.
The Mets came out aggressive last night and Villar at the top of the order started the action that led to 8 runs by the 5th inning. Villar was sat out of the final Marlins game and in a playoff chase, they lost that affair, and the questions as to why he sat came out. Why would you sit Villar as hot as he is when EVERY GAME matters right now. He can sleep all damn winter in a cave if he likes because there are 3 weeks of baseball left to gain that playoff berth.
Megill had full control of the Yankee bats on Friday night. Full control! His fastball was live in the high 90s and his off-speed stuff kept the Yanks off-balance all night. It was another sound outing for the rookie Mets starter who just came up to the bigs in June. He threw 98 pitches through 7 innings and only watched 2 Yankees cross home plate. The Gallo bomb was essentially his only big mistake but again, dominated the Yankees pitching with a healthy lead from the 3rd inning right on through the 7th.
Javier Baez had another nice night with 3 hits in 4 plate appearances. Baez has been on fire the last couple of weeks and the ball is coming off his bat with some vigor and pop!
Taijuan Walker will get to the toe the slab in this historic game, and he will likely have a fired-up crowd with 9/11 remembered after a big game 1 win in the Subway weekend series.
It doesn’t help anyone emotions how Michael King plunked two batters in the 7th inning and more errors killed the Yankees to open up the lead to 10 – 2. This game tonight will be full of things to watch so stay tuned for what could be a heated affair with emotions high!
