Corey Kluber is the ace the Yankees need

Corey Kluber is the difference maker and impact arm the Yankees need atop their rotation.  In 2017 and 2018, Yankee fans wished ace-like status on Luis Severino, but his inconsistencies have left him just short of owning the name.  Kluber, 32, has been the definition of consistent for the Cleveland Indians, winning 18+ games four out of the last five years and winning 20 games in 2018 for the first time in his career. Kluber has posted an ERA below 3.50 every season since 2014, and has struck out at least 220 hitters in the same span. Kluber keeps getting better, and is not showing any signs of regression. Kluber is an ace, the ace the Yankees need.

Derek Jeter’s Final Home Game: Just Over a Year Later

Just over one year has gone by and I remember it as if it was only yesterday. I was sitting in my dorm room and watching the game on my laptop with the lights turned off. It wasn’t the most comfortable experience for watching the game, but I wasn’t going to miss my favorite player of all time’s last home game for the world.

For most of the game, I thought I thought we had it in the bag, that is until David Robertson blew the save. At that moment in time I was pissed, but little did I know that it was all set up for a perfect ending. I had noticed that Jeter was going to get a chance to hit, but I thought it sounded too good to be true. But, then again, it was Derek Jeter. When he came up to bat with pinch runner Antoan Richardson (yes, I remember his name) at second, I had so good of a feeling I even starting recording the at bat for my Snapchat story. That night was one of the most magical nights for me and it was truly a blessing to be able to watch such an icon play while growing up.
