B in ALB : 7/17/2017 5:25 pm
Very very interesting seeing Frazier in the 2 hole tonight.
Headcase down to 7. And what's this? No Torreyes? My eyes can't believe what they're seeing.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
2. Clint Frazier (R) LF
3. Aaron Judge (R) RF
4. Matt Holliday (R) DH
5. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
6. Didi Gregorius (L) SS
7. Chase Headley (S) 3B
8. Garrett Cooper (R) 1B
9. Austin Romine (R) C

Facing Adalberto Mejia
4-4
4.43 ERA

He seems like someone I could root for. He's pretty good at baseball.


I think he has won the #2 batting spot against lefties. May stay at #7 or something against righties. But he looks good out of #2 tonight.
Caleb Smith with a pretty darn good performance

Smith looks like he knows what he's doing out there.  
yatqb : 7/17/2017 10:38 pm : link
We sure could use that. Heller looked good the other night as well.
wow - Frazier is slashing  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:40 pm : link
and he's fast!
Frazier MUST stay in the lineup everyday.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 10:40 pm : link
Stings the ball and runs the bases well/aggressively.
Clint Frazier  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 10:41 pm : link
better not be going anywhere
now they intentionally walk Judge  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:41 pm : link
.
Judge 1 for his last 21 and still gets the Bonds treatment  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 10:41 pm : link
...
ugh - Holliday  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:43 pm : link
tailor made DP.
Next time just strike out Holliday.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 10:43 pm : link
Jeez.
Yeah, Frazier's gotta stay here.  
bceagle05 : 7/17/2017 10:44 pm : link
He's gonna go ride the buses again because Ellsbury needs to play? Fuck that.
they intentionally walk Casto for Didi?  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:44 pm : link
I don't know about that.
Infuriating  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 10:45 pm : link
Hit it hard but you've got to find a way to stay out of the DP

Frazier is playing like he's had enough of the buses ...
WTF?

What an imbecile.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 10:45 pm : link
Inning over.
Someone's getting traded. Frazier isn't going back down  
DennyInDenville : 7/17/2017 10:46 pm : link
He's learning on the job very well. He seemed bored of Milb.

Hicks is back soon.. I think Ellsbury gets dealt for .10 on the dollar and we pay 3/4 his salary
Just awful batting.  
section125 : 7/17/2017 10:47 pm : link
3-1 count and Holliday shits the bed. Didi killing lefties and he bunts? WTF was he thinking.

Guess the bottom 1/3 is not the black hole.
They weren't playing a shift and the third baseman was in.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 10:48 pm : link
The bunt had to be 100% perfect. That was a very dumb thing to do.
sticking with Smith against Sano.  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:51 pm : link
Thought we'd see a righty come in here.
Dangerous AB here  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 10:51 pm : link
with a lefty against Sano
Jeez... we give up more bullshit singles than any team in baseball

Geez  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 10:52 pm : link
that ground ball gets through while we've been ripping balls at their defenders all night
Remember when we used to feel good about a battle  
mfsd : 7/17/2017 10:53 pm : link
of the bullpens? Not anymore
THAT'S A STRIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smith!

Nice K.
Smith with a big strikeout

That sucked.

Joe's luck ran out.  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:57 pm : link
Why did he keep Smith in against a righty hitter there?
I know our pen is gassed but I don't get that.  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 10:58 pm : link
This is a winnable game.
Is Girardi sleeping?  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 10:59 pm : link
Come on
OK - I've been a big Girardi supporter but I do not get this.  
Del Shofner : 7/17/2017 11:02 pm : link
Smith did his job and now you let him fail after 50 pitches or whatever it is?
I'm kind of done with Girardi  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 11:03 pm : link
.
I think 10 years  
bceagle05 : 7/17/2017 11:03 pm : link
might be enough for Joe.
Don't you dare criticize Girardi!  
B in ALB : 7/17/2017 11:05 pm : link
God forbid you bother the delicate sensibilities of some Yankee "fans" who are just tooooooo tired of hearing it. Shame!

We could do a lot worse. But if a strong option shakes loose this offseason, I hope we make the move. Similar to what the Cubs did with Maddon
There had to be at least 1 RHP he could trust to get a few outs  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 11:09 pm : link
there. That wasn't fair to Caleb Smith at all. He pitched well and is going to get a loss barring a comeback.
The announcers said Smith was good for 100 pitches  
B in ALB : 7/17/2017 11:11 pm : link
according to Girardi. Apparently there was absolutely no deviation from that analysis.

Aaaaaaaaaaand Headley smashes one 250 feet to LF. Well done power hitting 3rd baseman.
Another shitty loss complete with WTF is that idiot  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/17/2017 11:14 pm : link
doing stuff this time courtesy of Didi Gregorius.
Ridiculous loss  
Kyle in NY : 7/17/2017 11:15 pm : link
I'm sure Frazier will be on the bench tomorrow too
If Frazier isn't playing tomorrow  
B in ALB : 7/17/2017 11:19 pm : link
Joe needs to be fired.

I suspect he'll play.

I hear Torreyes is pitching and DHing. Is that true?

No - that's ridiculous. He's playing 3B and batting cleanup.
Judge sits tomorrow  
DennyInDenville : 7/17/2017 11:36 pm : link
Frazier will start in RF
Might be time to get Andujar up to join Frazier

Send Headley packing DFA eat the money

Provide a spark.

Holliday/Gardy is all the vet we need
A few thoughts  
Matt M. : 7/18/2017 12:45 am : link
1) At least one of Ellsbury/Gardner needs to be traded for whatever they can get. Frazier needs to be playing and Hicks outplayed both of them when he was healthy.

2) Didi's bunt made no sense. The 3B was in and no shift. Plus, he hits lefties and lefties have been hitting well against that reliever. He obviously did that on his own and it was a bad decision. You do that with 1 out or with the bases empty.

3) On the ground ball single in the bottom of the 8th, he was also shading too far up the middle for Sano. Playing more toward a traditional SS position, he makes that play.

4) I can't blame Smith. He pitched well and they didn't exactly hit the crap out of the ball.
New coach needed.

I hope so. Judge needs a rest and time to work out what's wrong at the plate.
Gave up on this game early (couldn't watch it live in VA anyway).
A little disappointed  
mavric : 7/18/2017 8:35 am : link
but overall, I'm just enjoying the season watching the youngsters learn the ropes. They are fun to watch. Mitchell did pretty well last night and Smith looked real good. And even though Judge is in a slump (Babe Ruth, the Mick, and Lou Gehrig went through them too), he's showing off some good defensive skills and a rocket arm. Remember, he's still learning. And I was glad to see Cooper flash some leather and finally settle down and getting his teeth cut with some hits.

It's all good. We might not make the playoffs, but we get to have fun watching the kids mature into steady ball players. The hot Spring and early success spoiled us thinking the kids were ready now to go all the way and bring home the trophy. And maybe they will, but that was never the long range plan.
Sorry I'm too much of a die hard to be "enjoying" the past month  
Stu11 : 7/18/2017 9:00 am : link
I am enjoying watching the kids and am slowly coming around to the reality that we just might not turn this thing around at this point this season so I'm not dying as much with the past few losses.

After this year I'd move on from Gardy. He's been a good hard nose/gritty player for the Yanks, but he is on the downside of his career and standing in the way of the youth movement; not to mention the team needs someone who can get on base more often leading off.
