You may wonder why I chose the title for this installment of About Last Night and well, it’s because Derek Jeter and his ownership team down in Miami stripped the Marlins down so much that they’re fielding an AAAA team and it was just the remedy the Yankees needed. I’ve missed being able to watch a game and not worry about the bullpen blowing a lead–unlike our friends out in Queens on Monday night. It was nice to sit down, relax and watch the Yankees beat up on a team they should beat up.
A big reason for this offensive explosion last night was Sir Didi Gregorius who had his second multi-homer game of the season on Monday night.
Another reason was Gary Sanchez.
And Aaron Judge.
Poor Brett Gardner had an RBI taken away from him because Bill Welke couldn’t get out of the way of a ball he smoked up the middle.
And finally, Luis Severino who bounced back nicely from his awful start against Boston. He allowed only one hit and struck out eight batters.
It was a nice night in the Bronx on Monday. Hopefully, the Yankees and more specifically, their starter, Masahiro Tanaka, can make Tuesday night just as nice.
