It doesn't happen often, but it's been happening very, very recently.

The Yankees beat the Astros 2 games in a row and last night it was truly great.

"Backed by a two-homer, four-RBI performance from Giancarlo Stanton, Severino struck out 10 and pitched the first complete game of his big league career, pounding his glove with glee after shutting out the Astros in a 4-0 victory at Minute Maid Park."

And compliments were handed out everywhere...

"I wouldn't want to be in the box facing him," Stanton said. "He's going to pound the zone at 100 mph, and if you look on time for that, you're going to get that 90-mph slider. It's exactly what we needed tonight and another par-for-the-course outing for him."
Here is the reality... we Yankee fans, and Yankee brass for that matter knew that Severino was that good. We just needed to get him there and he needed to learn about overcoming failure at a major league level.  He's matured... it's evident and he looked amazing.

Stanton? Well, I will hope and pray he has broke out.  We need to hope so.  We need this guy.

Big win last night against the 'Stros.  Yankees showed determination and fight.  I will take that all day long.

How are those Mets doing these days?  Those fans are quiet now... have you noticed?
