I got another good look at Luis Gil last Monday. The rookie pitcher had a rough 1st inning, giving up a pair of homers to the Twins, then settling down, allowing just one more run (a solo homer) over the next five innings.
Of course, things didn't go as well in his next start on Saturday. If the Yankees top four starters are Gerrit Cole, Jamison Taillon, Jordan Montgomery and Nestor Cortes, do you expect Aaron Boone to carry Gil as a bullpen arm for the post-season?
 What is Yadier Molina waving in the on-deck circle? That "bat" appears to have barbed edges. Or is it a light saber from Star Wars? Either way, I have never seen an object quite like that being used by a batter ready for his turn. Have you?
From Sunday night's Phillies/Mets game, pitcher Kyle Gibson takes a moment on the way to the dugout to thank 2nd baseman Jean Segura for helping turn a key double play in the inning just ended.
Onto the bottom of the 7th, as Jeff McNeil watches his tie-breaking home run head toward the seats. Bryce Harper watches helplessly as the Mets go up 3-2.
As the home run Apple rises!

Our wayback comes from 10 years and one day ago:
Mariano Rivera nailed down his record breaking 602nd career save against the Twins on September 19th, 2011. After the final out, the greatest relief pitcher of all time remained on the mound and soaked in an extended Yankee Stadium ovation and returned his love to the fans.
