I wonder if Velazquez got his HR ball?



Yes, the Yankees got it for him.




What a thrill for him  and his family, emotional moment. I believe that's his first ML homerun.




Yes, it was his first MLB homerun.  I just love that kid.




When he first came up I said WHO?? Now I'm checking the game lineups to see if he's hopefully playing. Exciting baseball, stealing bases taking the extra base and good defense.

I'm going to be very sad if they send him back down.

It was indeed his first MLB career home run. It wasn't a cheapie either. He was smiling around the bases.




It was really heartwarming to see his family so thrilled. His mother and sister were in happy tears. Very enjoyable to see.

They will likely keep Wade over Velasquez since Wade can play all 3 non-1B INF positions and could probably handle 1B if h ahd to, plus he can play the OF as well.  But, honestly, Velasquez is a FAR better defensive SS than Torres. If the other 8 positions in teh lineup keep hitting like thya have been they actually might be a better team with Velasquez at SS compared to Torres.  Of course, it's jst as likely that, like Higashioka, the more, he plays the more he will get expoed at the plate.


Still, he now will always be able to say he has a major league HR.

If Boone deserves some of the blame for the poor play ion the first half (and I believe he does) then he also deserves some of the credit for the recent resurgence that  thinjking ther have a legitimater shot at tHe AL East title.


But Boone remains clueless about his bullpen.  Last night with a huge kead he lets Koerner pitch the 9th.   OK,kid hasn't pitched in a while and the game si a blow out.  But then they immediately demote him to SWB while 2 guys they absolutely need to get straightened out sit - Britton and Chapman.  Again today, a big lead, enough of a cushion that if Britton or Chapman implode the rest of the bullpen is rested and would probabvly be able to keep the ship from sinking.  Two games, two large leads, two opportunities to get some relatively stress free work for the two guys who are supposed to be the two best relievers in the pen but who are basically unusable in close games and neither gets the call.  Inexcusable.

This isn't 1978 but it sure feels like it at Yankee stadium.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
