Did you see the game yesterday Mac?
Buck walks sori and arod in the 1st to get to wells.
In the 3rd same exact thing was happening with gardy on 3rd, 2 out.
This time Sori gets smart and whacks 1st decent pitch for a single and rbi.
batting him behind alex is stupid, at least put reynolds there.
Tampa getting Matt Moore back shortly. Yanks needs to take charge of that 2nd Wild Card spot before Tampa gets that Big 3 rolling. Price, Archer, and Moore are not what you wanna be running into when needing to make up ground.
This is about Jabroni covering Cashman’s butt. Girardi sits a Healthy Wells vs a LH SP, and it exposes Cashman trading for Wells as a Boner. Both Cashman and Jabroni should Not be retained at season’s end.
Girardi’s thinking has been that you use everyone because you will need everyone ( particularly veteran guys). If you don’t play Wells against a lefty he’s had success against (even in a SSS), when do you play him?
Now, I’m not 100% in agreement with this right now. And he can’t sit Ichiro for 4 straight games. So I’m guessing he figured today was Wells” best shot at contributing?
If Ichiro is healthy he has to be out there. Girardi’s Stewie and lefty, righty obsession is absolutely ridiculous. He is treating these games like it’s April or spring training. Ichiro is hitting lefties better than righties and Girardi is completely clueless.
For anybody who gets the chance, go sit in the Delta suite at the Stadium.
All the “free” peanuts popcorn and H2O you can swallow…
Just be prepared to spend a few hundy for ducats.
We got em for a steal and they are the best seats in the house.
“With the best bullpen in the league in the past month, as good as Pettitte has been the last few starts, you wonder why he lets him face Morse and Valencia, and then pulls him when Weiter’s, a lefty lifetime 2-12 with 8 strikeouts vs Pettitte.”
Because he said that the two previous batters had squared up on the ball and with two men on base and nobody out you don’t take a chance when your pitcher is tiring that way. And if he waited out Weiters, then what? Bring Kelley in then, because he perhaps managed to get an out?
Also, with Hughes on the mound today, do you think he wanted to burn the major components of his bullpen? He had already used Logan. If he brings DRob in, he’s potentially cooked for today.
Girardi doesn’t have the luxury of leading in the AL East and therefore mixing and matching with the callus.
He did what made sense to him with the totality of circumstances, and it didn’t work out. The guy didn’t get this team this far and all of a sudden forget how to manage.
Where has all our pitching gone, long time passing?
Where has all our pitching gone, long time ago?

Injuries, fatigue have picked them off, everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Starters need to earn their salaries and bullpen needs to be shutdown. Then there’s still a chance.
Nothing like fresh trout. I typically catch and release but a few of my family members request fresh trout during the season I try to oblige.
I bring my camera. This season has been slow because of the spring early summer rains the waters were not wade-able.
Last season my nicest catch was a 25″ brown I caught on the E Branch of the Delaware on a dry fly. Fall fishing is the best, the water cools the fish tend to feed all day long unlike late evening and early morning in the summer heat.
Everyone including Girardi knew that Joba was going to blow that game. But of course his reasoning was probably he wanted to go with the experienced guy over Huff, Betances or Warren. He really has to stop with this veteran crap. He is 100% like Torre when it comes to playing veterans who stink over a younger guy who can actually help the team more.
I think it takes a move. That seems to be more than enough excuse for Cashman/Girardi not to use him.
I mean, who needs offense, right ?
Ron Mustellier needs to be added to the 40 man roster in order to bring him up. I don’t think that the Yankees want to do that because:
1. Unlike JR Murphy, Mustellier does not need to be protected from the Rule-5 draft yet, and
2. The Yankees have guys who DO NEED be protected from the Rule-5 draft this winter and don’t want to clog the 40 man roster with someone who doesn’t need to.
In yesterday’s pregame interview Girardi said that he wasn’t going to play call-ups in game situations because the team has too much work to do to try and make the playoffs. We may not agree with that strategy but if that’s the strategy the Yankees will employ then it makes sense to keep Mustellier off the 40 man roster this winter. It sucks for Mustellier because he’s no youngster (28 years old) and doesn’t have a lifetime to wait for his opportunity in MLB.
