I read someplace recently a comparison to Phil Hughes. Sadly, it fits. Nibbles and his stuff is inconsistent from start to start.

but I really don't like the way the Yanks look. They look like trash. If the Yankees lineup can't hit against Porcello, I don't know what to say?! Porcello must be the best pitcher in the Mlb?! Even Sale allowed a HR.. pathetic.

Not that you are wrong, but what is today's date? In 1998, they were 6-4 on this date. Last year they were 4-4.

Another bullpen killing move by Boone. When Cashman got Gray from Oakland his primary attribute was that he was a horse. He wasn't lights out there, but he pitched innings and went deep in games. Here Boone gives him the early hook two games in a row.

I read that Boone is the first manager since Lou Pinella that didn't have minor league experience . It shows. Anybody that can remember those dark days saw Pinella abusing the pitchers and making bonehead moves. Another thing: Torreyes hit something like .350 against lefties last year and he's been hitting well this year. Didn't Mr. Analytics see that ? Why was he not in the lineup against Sale and Price ?

I can live with 6-7 on April 12, but I was scratching my head when Cashman hired this guy. Right now it looks like a dreadful mistake.


The Yankees were never going to add Verlander's  
arniefez : 4/12/2018 9:46 pm : link
contract. Hal is getting under the 197 no matter what. As far as Cole goes most people who post here didn't want him and didn't want to trade Andujar for him.
Looks like Gray got an undeserved reputation as a high quality pitcher  
xman : 4/12/2018 9:47 pm : link
and he is if you send him out against bottom dwellers like the Marlins. Guy would look like Koufax.

Boone looks over his head. Glad he can communicate with the press and players.

Judge looks like he is taking another step if that's possible . Last year I think Sales ate him up. This year it was the other way. Maybe just luck but I wouldn't bet on it.

Did still growing and improving. Its early but he really look more and more like the real deal
German looks good

Hicks might not be the second coming nor the answer  
xman : 4/12/2018 10:15 pm : link
But he does play a nice CF.

This pattern of holding back players to get 7 years of control is a possible mistake . When the players union negotiates a new deal in 2021 this loop hole will be closed and likely retroactive to guys that are now playing.

as i said on another yankee thread...  
firedbytheboss : 4/12/2018 10:46 pm : link
... Sonny Gray is not a true #1 or #2 for the Yankees. He is a borderline #2 and probably a good 3/4. Of course he is better than this. He is good pitcher, though probably not in the Verlander/Cole class. Cashman got him because he was cheap, not because he was better than the other guys on the market, Darvish/Verlander. We got the cheap guy. But that's ok if he's a mid rotation guy.

If Sonny Gray is the Yanks' second best pitcher this season we're not winning anything this year.
Gray is a 3 when he's on.  
illmatic : 4/12/2018 10:53 pm : link
He's really more like a #4. I'm just hoping they can swing a trade for a guy who can be right up there with Severino as a potential ace type. Sev/?/Tanaka/Gray/Sabathia would be ideal. There are always injuries so Montgomery would get plenty of action too for those who love him.

well let's face it.. the yanks arrived early last year. they got lucky. this was supposed to be the year they started to come around. And now we have all these expectations. Do you want to give up the farm for an ace? Cause that is what it is going to cost. I don't. I want to see them build this thing out a little. Let's think long term .. that's my opinion anyway.

Todd Frazier and I donít want to hear how he bats .200.. he plays a great 3rd base and is a leader we need that on this team right now.
re Gray, same old shit. nibble, nibble and nibble. hit walk walk  
Victor in CT : 4/13/2018 8:33 am : link
takes forever to deliver, puts the defense to sleep. Cone was very enlightening about him not even thinking about the inside corner fastball with 2 strikes. He couldn't hit a spot for anything last night. Gary down and in, Sonny up and away. WPs. UGH. Not a fan.

Wade looks bad, but he's still a kid. The Bird injury is really hurting them. Bird at 1B lets Walker play 2B, puts Wade on the bench. Stanton needs to be a DH at Fenway. The only thing worse than having him in LF there would be having him in RF. Could you imagine him trying to navigate the RF corner?! On the plus side, he had another hit.

They didn't seem to have much fire last night. I thought they would be a little more "up" after the fight and big win.

Ace718 : 4/13/2018 10:03 am : link
Since he's on the 40 man roster he does not qualify for an extra year of team control if he's called up before the season is 20 days old.

That's okay. Another few weeks of reps and ABs at SWB can only help him.
I also think it wise not to rush him up after a couple of poor games by Wade, make it look like he's a savior. No need to pressure the kid like that. If he's ready, I think May 1 makes sense.
Yanks next 5 are against Detroit and Miami

xman : 4/13/2018 11:29 am : link
Gardner, Hicks, Walker and 3rd base are 250- 260 hitters. Not good enough.

Walker's range at 2b seems limited. The pirates were spending 17 million a year for this guy. If that dosn't say the system was broken I don't know what would.

If only Andujar could make good.

The offense has been all or nothing so far this season. Stats don't show it but watching all the games so far this season shows the offense is struggling.

Nobody has argued against the fact that the pitching has been terrible.

Says the guy who said Aaron Hicks sucks, the day before Hicks had a monster game to carry the Yanks.

But of course you were nowhere to be found on last nights game thread.
