"The Yankees were going to home-run their way to the World Series last year, no matter how many times their big guys struck out. Now they're going to try it again."
1. Oh, last year was the year the Yankees were going to home-run their way to the World Series.
Thank you for clearing that up.
I had a bet with a buddy of mine, and I kept saying it was 1927 or 1961, but he insisted it was 2018.
Yes: The Bronx Bombers, the team that moved the right field fence in 100 feet and basically invented HRs as a strategy ... the team that has home-runned their way to more championships than any other team ... yes, you are on to something. Just like last year and the previous 90 or so before last year, the Yankees are trying to get batters who hit a lot of HRs.
2. Frazier strikes out more often than Encarnacion.
