No idea what we’ll get baseball-wise from Alex. His swing looked good, his arm looked fine, reaction was a little off at 3B, did not run well on bases. Biddle is a high-end prospect, but yesterday they pitched around him all day. No idea how that will translate tomorrow, but if he gives us anything, that will be more than what we’ve gotten…
Gary Sanchez guns down a runner with nice throw to 2B side of bag….
This is much worse than 2008. The core is much older, suspensions looming, checkbook ownership and no real youth on the horizon …
It’s going to be at least 2-3 more years before the Yankees will likely be a top contenders again… Hal deserves it.
This team isn’t going anywhere so why isn’t Romine catching everyday? Girardi has to stop with this nonsense of he doesn’t know the pitchers and whatever other excuses he has. It’s ridiculous that they are sending Stewart out there everyday over him.
I like that quote from Hughes. And Granderson’s yesterday about the voodoo doll. This is a nightmarish season in too many ways.
To some extent, I feel like after so many good times, bad times will happen. Its just thst They’re all happening at once….
Yeah maybe with some different decisions some of this could have been avoided, but the sheer magnitude of all of it suggests a force beyond what can be controlled. The baseball gods collecting their pound of flesh?
This is not a win for Arod. He has effectively lost any union support if MLB lets him play through appeal. Union has nothing to fight for. He gets to play a few games in a meaningless end of season for the Yankees and it just delays his suspension to 2014.
It’s a win in the sense that MLB is already backing off from some of the things they were supposedly threatening to do like invoking the “best interests of the game” clause to prevent him from ever stepping on an MLB field again.
Plus isn’t it great that Curt Schilling will be wrong if A-Rod plays tomorrow?
waiting for injured players and expecting them to contribute is really not good and more so if the injured player is already not on his prime. But we still do not need help so we are still ok, just ask our hands down GM of the yr.
he is going to play like a man possessed. I do not think this is a bad thing for the Yankees. Now in 2014 having alex will be disasterous but for this year maybe he has the ability to carry us to a playoff spot.
alex gets to play a few weeks whoopee
he’ll be lucky to play in Sept if he doesn’t get hurt before that.
the arbiter will get him for next year anyway, which makes this more of a sham.
he didn’t win anything.
