NFT: Indians @ Yankees- Sunday Going for the Sweep Edition

BC Eagles94 : 5/6/2018 11:34 am
Giancarlo getting a rest. Didi and Gary back in the lineup after a day off. And Austin back in the lineup (as DH) after a couple days off, even with another righty on the mound, prob want to get him some at-bats before the two Boston lefties this week.

Lineup

Gardner LF
Judge DH
Didi SS
Sanchez C
Hicks CF
Walker 1B
Andujar 3B
Austin DH
Torres 2B


Domingo German on the bump, with his first MLB start.

Lets get this sweep and 9 out of 10 from the AL cream of the crop (outside of AL East)!
I don't get this new trend of resting star players

with an off day the next day.
Couple corrections...  
BC Eagles94 : 5/6/2018 11:57 am : link
Judge is in RF. And Austin had three days off, not 2. My bad. Got a little trigger happy on posting.

We all know Giancarlo has been fighting it most of the year. So maybe they think the extra day off is good for him, who knows.

I do know they probably wanted to get Austin in the line-up (after 3 games off)...since he'll def be playing TU and WE vs. Pomeranz and Price. And they prob wanted to keep Walker in the line-up too, since he is starting to show some life for the first time all season.
Walker in the last three games...  
BC Eagles94 : 5/6/2018 12:04 pm : link
is 3/8 with 4 walks and only 1 K. And he had some really hard hit balls that were caught during the road trip in Anaheim and Houston. So I think he is finally starting to turn a corner.

Yeah itís a weird routine - 162 game season, this is the 18th day in a row with a game - selectively giving guys days off is an important part of keeping them fresh for the second half

I think of him as Severino lite. I think he can be a good 3 guy. Like AJ Burnett or Pineda. Hopefully, he can put it together as a Yankee though.

There's no issue with giving guys days off. The point I made is giving guys a day off with a scheduled off day the following day. Wouldn't giving Stanton a day off in the middle of the 18 game stretch be more beneficial?
So far

turned to me and said hey Goodens throwing a no hitter after the second inning. This was right after A rod tagged one to center that Gerald Williams barely tracked down. I laughed at him and said you never call a no-hitter after six outs especially when a guys stuff doesn't even look that good.

Little did I know he was prophesying. LOL. Incredible game.

Moron move of the day by Boone. Sending Betances back out and then bringing Holder with tomorrow off.

at the very least I would have liked to see them get Dellin after the lead off man gets on. You know the runner is going to be distracting him. Now he's got three runs charged to him because Holder can't strand an inherited runner to save his life. And it feels like a lot of the progress Betances had been making is reversed again
I know they're

eventually going to hit, but right now it's painful to see half the lineup struggling. I understand too, that we've seen some extremely talented pitching. Hope the day off gives everyone a well deserved rest.

Tip of the hat to Neil Walker, who is starting to produce. As I've said, I'll be surprised if he's going anywhere anytime soon. He's a solid player who gives them a lot of flexibility, and assuming that he's getting back to the hitter he usually is, that's a handy guy to have around.

Last 3 or 4 games he has come thru big time. Think Austin will go the SWB when Bird is ready (thought that would happen anyway since he has options left). Walker also (knock wood) plays a good 1st base and has been solid on scooping balls in the dirt.
I think it depends on if Kahnle and Warren come back and look good  
Greg from LI : 5/6/2018 4:29 pm : link
around the time Bird comes back. If the pen is 100% across the board, I could see them ditching the 8th reliever and keeping Austin up.

Drury, of course, could also factor in there.

the youth provides excitedment but come playoff time you need the vet presence and need a guy who has experience being the guy to shut down or at least slow the other team. i love our young kids...

30M a year.

Also, the other teams ask for the sun and the moon when negotiating with the Yanks. Houston gave up very little for Verlander and Cole, the Yanks wouldnít have gotten it done with similar packages.

After all the trades, the only redundant prospects we have left are Wade, Adams, McKinney, and maybe Frazier according to some, not including all the power relievers who may not fetch much. You are not getting MadBum for them.

I didn't take that at all as what Boone said. He said going into the 9th they were pinch hitting Stanton in the four hole there no matter the situation, and felt good knowing Gleyber was coming up.

I believe the question was more about why use Stanton there knowing he would be walked, and was it a confidence thing with Torres and not using Stanton for him? Boone didn't really say he wanted Torres up there but was confident and comfortable with him there. He had no problem with Stanton getting the possible IBB knowing Gleyber would bat next.

I get the excitement of rooting for home grown kids...its great.

But I have rooted for the team for many years. To me, if Cashman sees a way to improve...im for letting him trade while the aura of our farm successes adds a differential that may help us.

I trust that he wont make trades for trades sake...witness holding the line on Pittsburgh over Cole.

Three final things:

1) Knowing he does not have to trade makes Cashman truly able to deal from strength.

2) While we have prospects we want to hold on to; we also have a lot of RHP that wont be in slots 1-3.

3) The Yankees ( Hal Steinbrenner) are determined to get under the luxury tax. That also bounds Cashmans need to be disciplined.

Lost in all this is the possibility that Hal may be a much much better owner than George. Invests in infrastructure ( major and minor league coaching, tape analysis, scouting, first tier minor league instructions, facilities, analytics). Follows a long term plan and does not seem to panic or over and under react. Lately, Cashman made strong depth moves ( Drury, Walker) that helped or will help. Shows a good sense of the team

So for me, I don't think they will make a foolish trade or sell tomorrow for today. Obviously, not every trade works out but the odds do favor us if they see something that makes sense.

imo

Especially if a sane trade this year means we don't have to get stupid with next years FA crop

Exactly. Why are we talking trades when Severino is pitching like last year, Tanaka has looked good his last 3 outings as has Gray and we just got 6 innings of no hit baseball with 9 K from German? So we want to empty the farm to get a 4th starter?
This team is on an unreal run.

dune69 : 5/6/2018 5:14 pm : link
so if there is a deal that he can win and still hold salary in check, I'm sure he won't hesitate. I think he will be in a good position because he may not need to reach because of needs.

to win no matter what or who.

* When Judge flails at that down and away pitch trying to pull he looks awful, like most the game and yesterday. When he goes with the pitch, he's lethal.
* 16-2 in the tough early test 18 straight games. Very impressive
* what else can you say about Gleyber? He's got "it" like Jeter. WHatever the situation calls for, he can do it.
* Jim in Hoboken, you have forgive those who are stupid enough to think that George Steinbrenner was a good owner. THey actually think that they won due to his brilliance. The truth is the didn't win shit when he was in charge. It's no accident that the 2 WS runs in the GMS era were built while he was suspended from baseball. I will give him the credit for leaving two brilliant baseball men in charge while he was gone in Gabe Paul and Gene Michael. who he promptly drove away upon his return. I think Hal is a MUCH better owner and baseball man, and a more level hedaed, reasonable person.
Now if we can  
Photoguy : 5/6/2018 5:17 pm : link
just get some of the big bats in the middle of the lineup going, we'll REALLY see some fireworks. I don't believe Sanchez is going to hit .200 all year, and neither will Stanton hit .230. Hopefully after the series with the Red Sox, there'll be some soft spots in the schedule.

and pointed out the issue that will drive the Yankees at the trade deadline. Cashman has to stay under the 197 all year, every day. Right now they are about 13 million under. So they're in pretty good shape for 2018. Once 2018 is over their tax goes back to 17% on money over the tax limit which will rise to 206 million and the Yankees have about 40 million in expiring contracts after 2018. Gardner, Robertson, CC & McCann. They can pretty much sign anybody they want for 2019.

Drury, of course, could also factor in there.

just saw the video of Gleyber's HR now. Amazing in many respects - not least was that I pictured him lining the HR down the left field line or something - but no, that was almost dead center field - did anyone get a measurement? Must have been 400+. Just amazing ...

415 feet / 104.4 exit velo per statcast.

Which I agree is amazing - so far heís seemed a very capable hitter, but Iíve been picturing him with the proverbial gap power, maybe a 10-15 HR/year guy.

But hitting a rocket line drive 415 to dead center? Wow.

And then thereís his stellar defense, on display again today.

On a team mostly young but with several already established stars, Gleyberís already starting to shine as one of our cornerstone guys.

Amazing.

I just hope he doesn't lose that awesome range as he fills out. He's looking like a tremendous glove at 2B right now. His arm isn't too far off Cano's and he has much more range than Robbie ever did.

When your entire body screams of athleticism, you can handle a bit of extra body mass. The kid's a great athlete with a mind for the game and a pulse that stays very low under pressure, at the age of 21. Not to get too far ahead, but that's a superstar combination.

We are going to get sooo spoiled by this team.

I think a priority is trading near present assets unlikely to make it here (e.g. McKinney) for prospects years away (some catchers and pitchers esp) to keep the future pipeline strong.

That makes sense. I am curious about the plan for Frazier, though. He strikes me as a Dustin Pedroia type player -- someone who motivates others by his relentless effort and can-do spirit. If Gardner or Hicks gets hurt, his opportunity will arrive.

Tomorrow night vs Boston, I have 4 extras for sale.

4 tickets. Section 228 row 6. $500 for the set ($1 less per ticket than I paid). Just looking to recover my cost. Extended family outing, had a few people back out over the last couple of weeks.

I'm not 100% sure, but I got the sense from watching the hits by both Hicks and Gleyber that the wind had shifted and was blowing out. Those balls just seemed to keep carrying.
