All kinds of good omens for the pinstripes.Johnny with an appearance in a NY game thread!!! The season turns around today.
Athletes get to retire twice. The first one is easy. Bruce is 34. His family can live off his baseball earnings for another decade. But he probably needs to do something with his time.Whoa. I respect people who recognize that it's time to retire. Good for him.
Judge and Stanton both struck out in the 8th against Castillo. This is a team-wide slump, the worst kind, because everyone is pressing, even DJ. Coaches can preach not pulling off pitches, hit it up the middle, go with the pitch, hitters can look at video of their ABs all night long, but until they relax and quit lunging, they will not hit. Tampa pitchers especially know how to pitch Yankee hitters.Judge's approach lately has been atrocious.
John Sterling and Suzyn Walkman said this when Castillo was warming up. You think like two of the great ones, VORP!Really good grind it out win against Cole. Back to .500.
Very Rays-ian bullpen usage in bringing in Castillo to face heart of order in 7th-8th. No closers here.
That is true, but also ATL's 2-8 hitters are 13 for 20 so far tonight, with 5 HRs and 13 RBIs in six innings.Acuna came out of game with abdominal injury so that would be very helpful for Yankees staff, if he misses any time.
Here is the print version of this, Sherman neglects to mention that Tauchman has been an automatic out since 2019.The guys on mlbn said that they thought they'd benefit from playing their better defensive players, "like the Rays." Namely Gardner, Wade, Tauchman. That the difference in offense wasn't great enough to offset the loss in defensive prowess. I have no idea if this is stupid, as I haven't followed the Ys, but it sounds interesting.
Yeah, even from a non-Yankee fan perspective that article is trash. "The Yankees' offense is bad, so the Yankees should start playing worse offensive players more" is an...interesting approach.Here is the print version of this, Sherman neglects to mention that Tauchman has been an automatic out since 2019.
