Justin Verlander is just an animal.  Such a good pitcher and once he got to Houston, he became a better one. It's amazing what a change of a team can do for a player.  Love that.  Obviously I don't love that the Yankees lost to V and the Astros yesterday, but there was 1 good thing to come out of it.  Greg Bird is back, and clearly feels great. MLB.com has this:

"Verlander held the Bombers to Greg Bird's seventh-inning homer, scattering five hits while striking out five in a 113-pitch effort. 'He uses all his pitches where he wants to, when he wants to,' Bird said. 'That makes for a long day. You've just got to grind him out, really, and capitalize when he makes mistakes. You kind of tip your cap to him. He throws the ball well, and he's consistent. That's why he's been at the top of our game for a long time.'"

Look, whatever the case, the Yankees couldn't figure it out, Bird could.  Nothing to really say about yesterday other than we just need to deal with the loss, congratulate Bird and move on.  Man oh man.
