You don't move an MVP/59 HR guy down in the order just because he's having a rough start. It's a 162 game season. You wait just a bit and let him hit his way out of the slump.

Red Sox did get some seeing eye basehits and as good a hitting team as there are it doesn't take much to get runs.

Seriously, no chance you do that. Heís off to a bad start, you donít compound it by fucking with his head and unleashing the NY media on Boone for the decision to boot

So of course, Stanton immediately shuts me up with a single to right. I'll go sit in the corner now.

After Sale they have who? They are a great hitting team. It hasn't been their pitchers winning games, they've been coming back and winning late.
A slow start in crappy weather isnít a disaster

but this Yanks bullpen needs to sharpen up fast. Very few clean innings from them this year so far, Kahnle in an instant jam here tonight.

Just David Price and some guy that won the Cy Young two years ago.

Effin moron is more worried about the runner on second then walks two in a row.

I don't think the Red Sox pampered their players in spring training worring about October.
Not to mention

Pomerantz who won 17 games and is due back in a week but yeah, the Sox have no one other than Sale.

But one of these damn relievers better nut up and get through some innings so Boone doesnít have to burn out the whole pen in a blowout loss.

scramble to explain or justify this is almost as bad as the game itself.

They are getting spanked. They aren't prepared. This isn't a matter of a few guys slumping.

Its Boone that is useless. He's abused this bullpen from day 1. He had no business bringing Kahnle into game in which they were down by 4 runs to Sale. Boone is managing like its the post season rather than just taking a loss and he's going to burn this bullpen out. Pitching Robertson 3 days in a row. Using short relievers for multiple innings and 40+ pitch outings. And it isn't even April 15th!

This game should have been mopped up by Germain, Warren and/or Shreve. If Boone can't see that then Cashman better have a talk with him.

Also to refresh your short memories we probably wouldn't have made it past the wild card game without Kahnle and we certainly wouldn't have gotten to game 7 of the ALCS. He and Robertson saved our season last year. This year he and Robertson are being abused.
Everyone wants to jerk cashman off

Boone is in over his head. He has zero feel for th game.

It's obviously too early to really confirm this but both he and kapler sure are making it easy to pile on. It is up to the players to change the narrative.

Sanchez

has pressed but he has just missed so many pitches and drilled a fair number right into fielders. He isn't far off but it would help if he stopped trying to yank everything.

a couple of early season comments  
RasputinPrime : 4/10/2018 10:08 pm : link
Stanton and Sanchez are pressing and will hit their way out - hopefully soon.

Didi is "more patient" at the plate. Either this or he isn't getting as many good pitches to hit.

Austin and Romine are both hungry to stay and playing better than expected. Neither is a major contributor on a winning team however.

Andujar needs work on offspeed pitches and we need Drury to get back in the lineup. I think a few months and he hits his way back.

Walker fits the solid but not spectacular mold. I'm hoping Torres continues to hit like he wants to force Walker to battle with Toe for the supersub role.

Robinson is not the long-term replacement for Ellsbury.
That was rather embarrassing.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 4/10/2018 10:27 pm : link
Sevy just never had the slider and couldn't get a call on his fastballs. I tend to agree that Kahnle shouldn't have pitched there and who's surprised when Shreve stinks? I'm certainly not.

I would consider flipping Judge and Stanton in the lineup since Judge appears to have picked it up. I'm not worried about Gary, but it may be time to move him down a spot to 6 until he picks it up. The problem there is it's not like Neil Walker or anyone else is worth a damn at the moment either.
Promising sign to see Stanton finish with a couple hits  
mfsd : 4/10/2018 10:29 pm : link
Still not worried about him and Sanchez. The bullpen, on the other hand...

nygnyy274 : 4/11/2018 6:40 am : link
Redsox are 4-0 playing in the cold Pirates are 8-2 and have played in 30-40 degree weather every single game.so I donít want this hear cold garbage. And I donít want to hear about injuries either. Tired of excuses
ugly. Seve had no command of his slider. Still was game though  
Victor in CT : 4/11/2018 7:50 am : link
at least he gave them 5 when he didn't have his best stuff. Pen was awful. Sanchez looks lost.

Positives: Judge 3 for 3 with a bomb HR. Stanton 2 hits with a double.
Sale wasnít at his best last night either  
mfsd : 4/11/2018 7:59 am : link
Didnít really have his slider, but adjusted to going fastball/changeup.

Yanks got several hittable pitches and got their share of hits, just couldnít string them together. And Sale doesnít make it worse by walking people like Sevy and then Kahnle did last night.

Oh well, hammer Price today and we all feel better
I should say, Sale didnít have control of his slider

exactly. It's only April 11, and they are 5-6 not 1-10. They can still win this series.

No pitching.
It'd be nice to at least split these next two.

April or not, falling seven games behind a good team in the loss column isn't exactly a recipe for success.
