If I was at the Stadium and saw Stanton strike out 5 times I wouldn't be happy about it but I wouldn't boo either.  Last year Judge went through a bad patch and figured things out.  So will Stanton.

I did learn something new over the past week.  When Keith Hernandez is doing games and a player strikes out 4 times he refers to it as the "golden sombrero."  Sportswriters are now calling Stanton's 5 S.O games as a "platinum sombrero."

 

All jokes aside, Stanton will be fine in the long run.

Yeah. Your hero A-Rod went through it. It's a tradition.

A-Rod & I are finally in agreement on something. I too wish he went to the Mets instead of the Yankees.

This is what happens when people post while actually watching the games.

Baseball is back at last. "Who won?" I was asked in the bar. "The fight or the game?"

And the Yanks reach into their deep pockets to snag Gerrit Cole.  Let's see if it does them any good in the playoffs.

I am not surprised he was a first ballot pick, but also not surprised it wasn't unanimous. If anything, it was surprising that it was so close to unanimous.
