Marco Estrada has slyly and sneakily become one of the most dominant pitchers in the American League. Watch Estrada bob and weave his pitches, baffling the Yankees hitters, was delightful to watch. Masterful, even.
Estrada threw 8 shutout innings last night. He’s struck out 58 batters vs 42 hits and 26 walks, and has allowed five hits or fewer in seven straight starts.
I include this for some of my Twitter followers, mostly because it's very "Hey....."
Remember when the idea that only Dioner Navarro could catch Estrada was being floated around. It’s sometimes brought up with Martin struggling at the plate- “Dinner is cheaper. Estrada likes Dinner more….” I’ve made fun of it mostly because one could say many things about Russell Martin, but “doesn’t get along with pitchers” is not one of them.
Talk pitching to me, baby.
The other standout of the evening was Ryan Goins. Watching Ryan Goins success at the plate, followed by the various interactions in the dugout was delightful. As was this quote:
Also fantastic was this,
Obligatory Gibby quote:
GoGo, you know.
This song is transcendent.
