Made Yankee Fan in Boston: Goin’ Back to Houston, Houst . . .

Yesterday, in our dour assessment of the New York Yankees’ performance in the 2019 ALCS, we said oy.

Today we turn to this old Jewish proverb: One chops wood, the other says Hey!

That’s our cue:


The Yankees staved off elimination by mugging Justin Verlander for four runs in the first inning – welcome back Aaron Hicks – and hanging on for the next eight.



James (The Gopher) Paxton traded his standard first-inning homers for a run-scoring wild pitch, but then settled down to throw six stalwart innings. The bullpen went lights out and the Yanks packed up for two – maybe! – in Houston.

See you there.
