The Twins haven't won a game since they were the Puerto Rico Twins and are also now below 500. Byron Buxton ripped his leg off or whatever and also it is the Yankees at Yankee stadium. Yay?

But is there any hope?!:

Yes. Jose Berrios is pitching today! Berrios is sporting a princely 0.58 WHIP and is averaging more than one K per inning. He was also the guy who started that Puerto Rico game where winning eventually happened!

Max Kepler is hitting .500 for his career against Yankee Starting throwguy C.C Sabathia. Real Actual Major Leaguer; Logan Morrison is hitting .400. Don't look up how small those sample sizes are though. Let's just feel good!

The Yankees have two Aarons who field next to each-other so maybe someone in the crowd will yell "AARON" and they'll both look and the ball will drop for a hit.

But is there enough hope?!:

It says here that the Yankees have Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton? That can't be allowed. It is at least against the spirit of the game.

New York was a mistake.

Players to watch:
