I went to the 2017 Wild Card game with my brother, Paul, who is as a big of a Yankee fan as you and me.  He called out to the Minnesota Twins as we came back and won the game, "This is October Baseball in the Bronx Baby!"  And since that moment, I have coined that phrase throughout the ALDS until this very moment, the morning of Game 5 where the Yankees find themselves in familiar but yet unfamiliar territory.  All tied up and the reality that we have a chance to advance sooner than we thought we could.

"Down two runs to the Astros and in serious trouble of being pushed to the brink of elimination, the Yankees rallied for four in the eighth inning and a 6-4 victory witnessed by a sold-out crowd of 48,804 that sounded a whole lot like the raucous mob that used to live across the street in October," reported the NY Post minutes following last night's incredible come from behind win.

We are THE DEAD BATS SOCIETY no more as even Chase Headley plowed an opposite side single to score Todd Frazier who started off the hot bats and ignited an 8th inning that shook the new House that Ruth Built like never before.  Aaron Judge hit, Didi Gregorius hit, Gary Sanchez hit...The eighth inning was electric as I stood in my kitchen afraid to breathe, afraid to move, afraid to sit down- so I didn't until Aroldis Chapman retired the last of Astros and brought Game 4 to a close.

Tonight we host Game 5 where Masahiro Tanaka will go head-to-head with Dallas Keuchel, who says the Bronx atmosphere will have no effect on his performance.  "Don’t bother with the Bronx cheers. Yelling and screaming won’t work either. Dallas Keuchel embraces it all. He says you won’t rattle him Wednesday when he warms up in the bullpen before Game 5 of the American League Championship Series," reports the NY Daily News.

Dallas, you ain't seen nothing like October Baseball in the Bronx Baby!  We are coming for you Keuchel.  The entire stadium will be there, bellowing, shaking the ballpark like you have never seen or heard before.  Let's make this a Game 5 to remember!
