Tanaka not really sharp in early innings. Don’t know if cold weather has anything to do with how Kuroda pitched and Tanaka pitching tonight. it’s not the big hitters getting to Tanaka. It’s the guys at the bottom of the lineup. Too many balls and too many walks. This is going to be tough for the Yankees to win this one with Tanaka not at his best and Solarte and Gardner out of the lineup. Guys like Trout and Pujols and Aybar can kill you

Master Tanaka might not have had his best stuff BUT this guy is mentally tough and makes great pitches in the clutch. I like this guy and predict that, barring injury, he’ll be the ace of this staff by year’s end.

Damn. No Solarte and no Gardner. This is going to be tough against a pitcher with a good record so far. Weak bottom of the lineup tonight. Tanaka is going to have to be his best against this lineup and the top and middle of the lineup are going to have to provide some strong offense. Not going to be easy

tough game to win with nuno subbing for nova and leaving Solarte and McCann out of the lineup but the Yankees came through but a nail biter at the end. Hopefully get a big win out of Tanaka tomorrow. JR Murphy made the most of his opportunity today. Hopefully he can keep it going because Cervelli isn’t coming back for quite a while. Betances pitched a couple of good innings as well and got the win

Nail biter deluxe in the 9th. Will someone inform the knucklehead in the stairs along first to get the F out of the way on a foul pop. THAT could have been a disaster.

This is really big news. Why did Girardi bench Solarte today? Great way to give a rookie confidence.

If he was benched, there is a reason for it genius.
