PSA Comments of the Day 6/19/15: One more to go

New, comments

The Yankees got swept in Miami. The Marlins got swept in New York. The Tigers are in town and Alex Rodriguez is only one hit away from history.

The Yankees did not play well against the Marlins in Miami. Then they returned to the Big Apple and played well against them. Perhaps it was the scent of Everything Bagels roaming around the city. In any case, the Bronx Bombers have a two game winning streak going for them as they welcome the Tigers into Yankee Stadium for a three game series. A few years ago, the pitching match-up of Adam Warren vs. Justin Verlander would have probably spelled doom for the Yankees. Today, all bets are off. Verlander is still in recovery mode and Warren, despite a shaky outing against the Orioles, has been one of the Yankees most consistent starters. Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of Warren and all that.

On the more historical front, Alex Rodriguez. After his two hits last night, A-Rod is only one hit away from his 3,000th hit. The crowd wanted it last night. It was the most passion you've heard out of Yankee Stadium for some time now. Between the slightly profane chants and the chorus of boos directed at Sam Dyson, it sounded a lot like the Yankee Stadium of old. It was nice to hear. In any case, A-Rod will go for history tonight. Whether or not it has an exclamation point remains to be seen.

Comments of the Day

Yes to all of this.

Those were some great names.

We're talking about hits, right?

Maybe this was the true payment for the NYY Steak dinner.

GIF of the Day

Beltran came back from the dead.

Victory!

Honorable Mod Mention

We'll give it to Andrew today, because he might have a stalker.

Fun Questions

  • What book, TV, or movie character do you feel you most identify with?
  • What will A-Rod's 3,000th hit be?

Song of the Day

It's Postmodern Jukebox week on Pinstripe Alley. Today's PMJ was just released yesterday. Another very nice cover to add to their resume. As always, please link us your song of the day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Warren vs. Verlander tonight, with perhaps a dash of history. Baseball is the best.
