Eh, not like Hicks is exactly tearing the cover off the ball though.
Gardner is 80 and stinks
Im predicting the Yankees lead the MLB in strikeouts by years end.
And stranded RISP. Sheesh.
Coles 13K's looks like Catfish Hunter in his prime
Judge gets the night off for maintenance or "general wear and tear." What a joke. Between him and Stanton these two guys are the biggest babies in the league.
Stanton DH's yet he missed months at a time from what always seems to be a calf strain. A calf strain? He can't swing a fucking bat?
I know injuries are real and whatever but sometimes it's too much. Players didn't break down like this even in the 2000's when I first started watching sports. I could imagine what you guys who watches in the 70's and on think of this
They're milking this in some sports to a certain extent IMO.
I look forward to the experiment of him hitting 3rd ending.
Hes not a 3 hitter and no one will ever convince me he should be there just because he's a lefty.
He's not a hitter period, he should retire, some guys don't know when to quit
Im talking about hicks
I know but they put Brett Garbage-pail in Hicks 3 hole the other night
I'm not sure if every team does it because I only follow the Yankees closely on a daily basis but I feel like they have over analyzed the right/lefty thing for the better portion of the past decade+ since Torre retired.
I like Hicks. Good defender and works walks. He's literally perfect for the 2 hole and I can't remember them ever putting him that. Sandwich him in between Lemahieu and the strikeout kings behind him and he'll actually see a fast ball every once in a while to hit.
I know they need to breakup the K brothers in some fashion, but Judge needs to be out of the 2 hole. He's a premium player. Even if you want to put Gleyber in the 3/4 spot.
Judge played 5 games and had 22 at bats and is out with general soreness....he'd never make it in the NHL
Can I get a team thats not painful to watch please?
Clintt Frazier have general soreness too? Brett Garbage-pail plays every game and still has 1 rbi
So does Torres.
I know its early, but they strike out way too much and their BA is terrible. I know BA isn't that important, but you can't hit .200 as a team. Is this really going to change much?
I think this will change, but they hit way too many grounders too. I think they are tied for mlb lead in double plays.
I really have a hard time seeing WS contender with this team.
Side note: Cubs are hitting .167 as a team.
I want to say this is at least the 4th game in a row Yankees had 1 hit or less after the 4th.
Cashman has been living off 2009 for 12 years now....poorly constructed team with a terrible starting staff that is injury prone....Coles vs the World!
Actually, Cashman has been living off the teams of 1998-2001, which were built by his predecessors. Once the mainstays of those years left (e.g., Cone, Tino, O'Neill, Brosius etc) and Cashman had to replace them, things went downhill: two World Series appearances ('03 and '09) and one championship ('09). He builds teams that usually do well during the regular season but fold in the post-season. He survives because (1) Hal seems to be satisfied as long as the team reaches the post-season; and (2) the media treats Cashman like some kind of genius. .
Girardi saved his ass too
The fuck is this lineup?
