Dellin Betances just airmailed an intentional walk pitch over Brian McCann's head, but Angel Pagan couldn't score from third. Then the Yankees changed course and had Betances pitch to Brandon Crawford, and Betances got him to ground to second to end the 12th. Oh my. Gotta love baseball.

One caveat to consider on Tigers' trade deadline stance: the team also indicated they would not make any big splashes following the Winter Meetings. Then they went out and signed Justin Upton. Owner Mike Ilitch is always a phone call away. Conversely, if team goes off the rails in the next week or if rehab of Zimmermann/Norris takes an unexpected turn, unloading a piece may sound more enticing. Avila did leave the door open. He said standing pat was the team's most realistic option "sitting here right now."
