That wouldn't make sense with how thin the starting pitching depth is for the organization after the trade deadline. What are they going to do if there's a "real" injury to someone in the rotation while Nestor is on the 15 day IL?I wonder if that is a fake injury to keep his innings down. I hope, at least.
Ugh..because it's common for teams to do this when they're up 9 games? The Yankees rest their position players at a pretty crazy clip. Also, nobody said Severino was on the phantom IL, they said - because the pitcher himself said - that they didn't understand how they could push him on the 60 day if he was getting ready to return. I never heard peep about Holmes or Abreu.I think this is one reason why people hate Yankees fans. Lots are so delusional. Pretty much the only fanbase in baseball that thinks that Phantom IL is something their team regularly does. This is, what, the fourth pitcher in the past month to hit the so called Phantom IL? Severino, Holmes, Abreu and now Nestor?
You always say this and it's usually not worth disagreeing because it's kind of a subjective thing but man, I don't know. Our fans are knuckleheads at our worst but on average it's a pretty tame fan base IMO. If you want the crazy fanbase, look at LA or Philly. To me, Boston and NY fans are just there for the day out and a baseball game with the obvious wild cards in the crowd.And I hate Yankee fans despite being one my whole life, maybe every fanbase sucks when you pay close attention but NY’s is truly awful.
Fair. But it balances out because every other one of the NY sports teams (Rangers notwithstanding) suck and our fans suffer. Mets aren't a NY team. They're like an alien race that moved to Queens.Yeah I don’t mean at game fans although interfering with balls in play that will hurt NY is always dumb. I mean the discussion around the team, it’s why we’re on a Sox site.
Confirmed, Bader is the 40 man move to get Weissert on the roster, Florial down, Nestor to the IL, Stanton back, Weissert added to the 40 man and promoted.I think it’s phantom also and the answer to the previous post is they had no good answers with Schmidt in the pen anyway. In either case, I think the answer is actually Deivi Garcia, let’s hope we don’t find out before Severino or Nestor is back.
40 man they can put Bader on the 60 day, he’s been on almost that long already (6/27).
Luke Bard got sent down after yesterday's game, that is Holmes' spot.Who went down to accommodate Holmes return? I checked a couple of sites but all they have is Marwin Gonzales going on the paternity list and Locastro replacing him. Unless I'm missing something, I thought another move was needed to get Holmes back on active roster?

"So it was just a little bit more fired up. I don't know if it was not bouncing back from last outing, I just didn't bounce back as well, but it was just a little hotter today."
Marinaccio is scheduled to have an MRI, with manager Aaron Boone saying the team will wait until the results Monday to make a decision on the right-hander's availability for the rest of the season. Marinaccio had an MRI on the injury earlier this season, but testing came back negative.
"It's just that time of the year where some wear and tear but you know, shouldn't be any issues," said Marinaccio, who described the ailment as soreness on the bone and not a shooting pain. He added that if his MRI comes back clean he plans to join the team in Texas for their final four games of the regular season.
