Anthony Rendon may have given my favorite quote of the year

Anthony Rendon is from Texas. I really love Texans:

“How many games left?” said second baseman Anthony Rendon when asked by a reporter if he was worried. “I feel like y’all are the only ones worried about us. Don’t worry about us. Y’all worry about y’all selves. We’ll be alright.”

As our Drew Silva just put it:

In other news, you’d know if Rendon was from West Virginia and not Texas if he said “All ya’ll” instead of “y’all selves.” Subtle regional difference regarding the second person plural collective, each considered acceptable in proper discourse depending on where you are.

Luke Voit avoids concussion after taking 91 mph fastball to face

Yankees first baseman Luke Voit exited Saturday’s game under less-than-ideal conditions after a 91.4-m.p.h. fastball caught him on the chin in the fourth inning. Following his removal, he passed the standard concussion protocol testing, though the Yankees will likely play it safe with the infielder over the next few days.

With one out and a runner on first, Voit stepped up to bat against Chad Bettis in the bottom of the fourth inning. He had just worked an 0-2 count against Bettis when the mishap occurred — a fastball that deflected off of his shoulder and met his chin. Voit took a few moments to recover, then took first base before he was eventually lifted from the game at the top of the fifth.

Prior to his exit, the first baseman went 0-for-1 with a walk. He was subsequently replaced by DJ LeMahieu, who shifted over from third to first base while Gio Urshela stepped in at the hot corner.

The Yankees currently lead the Rockies 11-5 in the eighth.
