Yesterday some jackass got on the radio with Joe and Evan saying the Yankees offense while beating up on Jason Hamel the night before are going to get a wake up call because Jason Vargas with his 1.05 ERA has been unhittable and it will be a different story going up against the best pitcher going in the majors.

Yeah it was a different story. Vargas had the wake up call against a team that had scored the most runs to this point in the season. As a matter of fact Hamel faired better then Vargas. I believe the term this jackass used to describe Hamel was tomato can. I think Vargas looked more like the so called tomato can then Hamel.

Joe has been giving his outfielders days off on a schedule and it's Gardy's turn, no big deal.
Huh. A set day-off schedule?

I'm not opposed to that.

Chris Carter's batting average may be higher than Headley's. Weird.
If things stay like this I think Gardy can have his best year  
Stu11 : 5/18/2017 6:38 pm : link
his balls to the wall style of play always leads him to wear down in the 2nd half. With basically 4 starting OF's its going to keep them all fresh and could really help. They all have played well so there is no reason to sit any of them a lot. Rotating off days is a great idea. I really am starting to buy that this team can contend for the division all year. Pineda and Sevi will be the key in the starting rotation. I think the Royals will be an interesting team to watch. If it keeps going like this they will back up the truck and they have SP's that can help us. I would not be adverse to bringing back Ian Kennedy. He's a solid 3rd starter type that wouldn't cost us a top prospect.
Too  
BocaGiants91 : 5/18/2017 6:43 pm : link
Much money for Kennedy in the next few years. They wont do that.
ouch yea I was lazy didn't look up his contract  
Stu11 : 5/18/2017 6:52 pm : link
It is a doozy. I still might do it because he will cost us virtually nothing to trade for and its 3 years after this. Its not like we have a ton of pitching prospects on the horizon. He might slot in nicely in the rotation for the next few years if healthy.
I never liked Kennedy  
Greg from LI : 5/18/2017 8:00 pm : link
Yeah, it's been ten years now, but the first thing I think of when I hear his name is still his excuse making when he was getting lit the hell up as a rookie - "I'm actually pitching well"

Just has to be part of the game. He's the centerpiece. Everyone wants to see him.

His quadruple chins and jabba the hutt body and horrific ability to call professional baseball should be first and foremost!

He's an American treasure. Cuntry Joe.

thanks - I guess it's not going to go in a straight line for a rookie pitcher.

but I read on BBI that the Yanks are doomed if they didn't sweep KC!

Up 1.5 on the division - 2.5 would have been nice but still in good shape - on to Tampa ...

Montgomery and Severino (and maybe in July, Adams) are going to have stretches where they will look like front-of-the-rotation guys- and then have stretches that make you wonder if their next start will be in SWB.

Such is life with rookie SP. On the other hand, I prefer going with the young SP because you can see the upsdie and know they will be even better in the future- where with guys like CC, you know what they were and they are now just a shadow of that- which is even more frustrating than dealing with the ups and downs of young SP.
