The Future?

It shouldn’t surprise us that Greg Bird was the hero last night. Here’s a guy who has 20 homers in 304 big league ABs, which is a lot of power. Injuries have been and will be the biggest obstacle to his greatness. But if he is healthy…look out. Imagine the next five years with a healthy Bird hitting between Judge and Sanchez and you have quite a lineup.

Tonight we get to see another possibly huge piece of the future in Severino. One of my biggest problems with the ALDS rotation was the fact that the season might have ended with Severino thinking about that start all winter. Now he gets a chance to erase the slate. Let’s see what he does with it.
