    Deivi Garcia gives Yankees hope in weekend of bad baseball: Sherman

    Have we already seen the best of the Yankees’ Baby Bombers?

    The village on fire that is the Yankees received a helicopter bucket Saturday in the form of their 2-1 victory over the Mets, courtesy of an old-school bottom of the ninth inning that featured a Clint Frazier walk, a Jordy Mercer hit-and-run single and Erik Kratz’s safety squeeze attempt that sure seemed to compel old …

    You get the sense that if they could, the Mets would channel one of the signature moves of the seminal figure of one of their ancestral forebears. That would be John J. McGraw, also known (though never to his face) as Muggsy, who for 31 years won 59.1 percent of the 4,424 games he managed …
