    • Oh he’s going to hit it against us. I just hope it’s off a pitcher that isn’t with us for the long term. Like Lyles, or one of our up/down relievers.    But I want to see our pitchers go at him. We’re about building respect in our franchise back, and building confidence for next year.    Hyde is class, and it’s time we got back to that completely. 
    • Funny thing … Mantle hit 500th and for the Os, the mighty Mark Belanger hit a HR lol … his only one in 1967 and one of 20 career over 18 seasons 
    • Oh we have a history of being part of Yankee lore … Cal breaking Lou’s record, and Stu Miller giving up Mickey’s 500th (when 500 meant something) .. The Yankees were spawned from the 1890s Oriole franchise moved by the fledgling AL to NY as the Highlanders for a season then Yankees pitch to the MFY and strike his butt out four times !!  http://mickeymantle.com/500th-home-run/  
    • True, but it's all the writers that make that vote, not just NY voters.  NY writers vote's don't carry more weight than anyone else's. Agree, I like him, overall.   I'll notice.  You'll notice.  Everyone here will notice.   Poking them in the eye, repeatedly.  Very hard, sharp, quick thrusts. But also, who do you want a record set against?  You or someone else?   True. TLDR   I'm not sure when you joined but I know you've been here awhile.  I'm pretty sure we're all well aware of Judge's history against us. If you need to be reminded, it's a .314/.430/.712 slash line with 35 homers.  That's more homers against any team and by a decent amount.  He's got 28 against the Jays and then the next highest amount is 21 against the Sox.   I've seen how our guys do pitching to him for years now and the results are hardly ever pretty.  He's got 9 homers against us this year, which is more than any other team.  I'm pretty sure I know how this story ends.
    • I thought at the time that Hyde likely was saving Mullins for pinch-running in case he needed some speed for the tying run. 
    • I agree with this, though I do think we have more internal options for improving our offense than we do with our pitching.  Lots of deep thinking for Elias & co. to do this offseason.   
    • Yeah …it really doesn’t matter. I’m not saying we should throw him BP. But try to win the game and make him hit your pitch.
