BBB Twitter Reacts: Favorite Yankees ALDS Moment
Wow. In a season where playoff contention was extremely unlikely, the Yankees are moving on to play for the American League pennant. While the first two games produced a few astronomical lows, the remaining games of the series were filled with excitement and historical moments.

I decided to post a poll and ask our Twitter followers which moment they felt stood out amongst the rest.
Favorite moment of the ALDS?— Bronx Bomber Ball (@BronxBomberBall) October 12, 2017
However, I realized that there were way more than four moments that could be in the discussion for the best. So, I asked BBB Twitter to tell me what was their favorite moment and why, and here are the responses!

Bird is the Word!

Sir October is bornBirdman homer game 3 changed whole momentum in series with Encarnacion going down— Pat Corey (@pat_corey) October 12, 2017
Sir Didi going deep when it mattered most.— Adam (@AdamZee88) October 12, 2017
Tanaka TimeI'm biased because I was at Game 4, but: Severino's redemption. Outside of Game 4: Greg Bird HR & Didi's 2 tonight— Mary Grace Donaldson (@TheRealGracieD) October 12, 2017
The series doesn't get past game 3 without Tanaka's brilliant outing. That was the springboard for the entire comeback.— Andrew Natalizio (@anatalizio0523) October 12, 2017
Tanaka pitching like he wants to come back— H. Colon (@UndeniablekOoTs) October 12, 2017
Gardy Party!Tanaka’s performance was massive, it gave us a chance... without that we went home after a sweep.— dane le page (@Dane_9) October 12, 2017
There were a lot of great moments, but Gardner's marathon AB in the top of the 9th was the theme of the Yankees. Grind and never give up.— Michael Notarstefano (@m_notarstefano) October 12, 2017
Grady's AB. Heart and soul of the team coming thru in the clutch— Alex Clouden (@aclouden84) October 12, 2017
Gardner AB/hit cause it enabled me to breathe during the bottom of the 9th— Brian Polivy (@BrianPolivy) October 12, 2017
The old and the new: CC and Sevy
CC turning the clock back in game 5.. He looked like he did in 2009, it tells you how clutch he really is— Effi Gorodetzer (@effgoro) October 12, 2017
Momentum swing plus whole Yankee stadium was rocking chanting “sevy” I was sooo proud and happy for the guy close 2’d would be Tanaka’s GM 3 pic.twitter.com/yGUF41U8JO— Nelson Suarez (@NelsonSuarez156) October 12, 2017
Good ole Toms River
Both times Frazier ran to home base, gave it everything he had, but looked like he was running in jello ...— Marc 🗽🇺🇸🇦🇺🇮🇹 (@grimmtales02) October 12, 2017
The Kahnle outing for Betances no doubt man— Matt (@MattyEagIes) October 12, 2017
The inning ending double play of Lindor in the 5th inning, my heart had stopped beating for the 30 minutes leading up to it.— Jack Strohman (@jackstrohman2) October 12, 2017
The Judicial Leap
A win for JoeThe moment Judge saved the series by robbing Lindor of that 2 run shot in the Bronx. The dude can save his team without hitting bombs #mymvp— Blake R (@BlakeNinja) October 12, 2017
For me, seeing Girardi hug his fellow staff after the final out of game 5. He loves this team and it was obvious he felt bad. Happy for him.— Brendan (@Yankeefans18) October 12, 2017
Joe and other coaches expressing child like joy and sharing it with each other like they all like each other as much as the players do— Eric Relkin (@ericrelkin) October 12, 2017
It is clearly evident that there was no single moment that particularly stands out as the defining moment, because of how much a team effort this epic comeback was. I am going to conclude this article with a very interesting take on what this person thought was their favorite moment.
Girardis non challenge is my favorite, without that who knows if we rally together and come back. Everyone was saying it was over 🤐— Mike (@desantis25) October 12, 2017
They have a point. Without Girardi’s failure to challenge, none of these moments may have ever happened in the first place!
