Gleyber Torres had a big day for the Yankees in Game 1. Some of you will say he could have been doing that for the Cubs. I say: I don’t care what Torres does for the Yankees, the trade helped the Cubs get their championship flag. Flags fly forever.
The Yankees looked pretty dominant in Game 1, but they have to face Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole in Games 2 and 3. This series is far from over.
