NFT: Yankees vs. Nats thread (plus Clint Frazier news)

Beer Man : 5/15/2018 2:22 pm
1. Tanaka vs.Gonzalez.

2. Clint Frazier could be seeing his first action tonight as he has been called up to the Yanks. Yanks want an additional player for the Nats series given they are playing in a NL park with no DH. No word on who is being sent down/out.

Trying to go  
kash94 : 5/15/2018 2:24 pm : link
to the game tonight here in DC but it's supposed to rain starting at 6-7. Issue is it's set to rain next few days as well so not sure how they'll fit these games in....
Tonight will be scattered storms  
DC Gmen Fan : 5/15/2018 2:25 pm : link
as opposed to last night's constant line so hopefully that will help a little. I'm going as well. Not sure how I'm getting there yet.
Expect to be going too

Probably going to drive in case the rain causes delays...
The Yankees-Tigers-Diamondbacks have done two three way trades  
Greg from LI : 5/15/2018 3:17 pm : link
I never thought about it before, but RAB mentions in the Nats preview. The Yankees came out well in both deals, but there was a clear loser in each. The Diamondbacks got the short end of the stick in 2010, when they ended up with Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy while the Yankees got Granderson and the Tigers got Scherzer. In 2015, of course, the Yankees got Didi, the Diamondbacks got Robbie Ray, and the Tigers got.....Shane Greene.
Slight twist in tonight's starting line-up  
Beer Man : 5/15/2018 3:53 pm : link
Tanaka to bat 8th. Contrary to rumors, it appears Hicks is not injured.
1. Hicks (CF)
2. Judge (RF)
3. Stanton (LF)
4. Sanchez (C)
5. Didi (SS)
6. Austin (1B)
7. Andujar (3B)
8. Tanaka (P)
9. Torres (2B)

i agree with the didi falling a couple spots until he gets it figured out.

Don't think it really matters either way, but whatever. Stupid National League.

Plus Stanton is batting .457 against lefties with about a 1.100 OPS....crazy numbers.

Ive always liked that approach. Not an exorbitantly compelling reason for why, but just always loked the idea of the 9 and 1 spot stringing hits together.

But yes....stupid national league.

I view it as kind of a test run for Gleyber batting leadoff, which he probably will in some innings as/when Tanaka makes the last out. But yeah, stupid NL. It's not very exciting watching pitchers wave at 3 pitches.
can't kep Torres at 9 forever. I get that you want to protect him, not  
Victor in CT : 5/15/2018 4:36 pm : link
put too much pressure on him, but after 20 games anything can be learned, it's that he is oblivious to pressure.

Makes sense. He is a JAG. And Cole looked real good in a high leverage spot the other night. Thought Hale could have won out over Cole, due to the length he can give. But apparently Yanks like Cole more than Hale.

Ace718 : 5/15/2018 6:37 pm : link
former Yankees' top prospect Slade Heathcott was released by the As. So many top prospects just don't pan out. Heathcott, Mason Williams, Montero , etc all became busts.

That's why the current development of the prospects is so amazing. Every guy that gets called up contributes to the team. A few years ago most of them went down the bust track.
Interesting season for Tanaka thus far.

Tanaka just has no command right now  
BigBlueShock : 5/15/2018 7:24 pm : link
Heís going through one of his phases. Heís not coming close to hitting the spot Sanchez sets up
2nd and 3rd - no one  
section125 : 5/15/2018 7:34 pm : link
out. Zippo.

Brilliant batting order comes back to bite Boone in the ass.

Hicks gonna be riding that pine pretty soon hopefully

One of the best players in the league in April. And somehow, one of the worst through the first 2 weeks of May. Not even an exaggeration.
and Didi fucks

All he does is give up home runs lol. This start doesn't look good.

Tanaka tossing hot garbage up there.  
bceagle05 : 5/15/2018 7:46 pm : link
Our rotation is an ace, two #3s, a #4 and a #5. We need a #2.

The Yankees are very inconsistent with balls and strikes. This is an annoying game. This DB and his BP curve ball.
Tyler Austin with the big fly!

Great job staying back on the slow curve
That swing by Austin was impressive

Opposite field HR against a lefty
Umpire giving Gio  
section125 : 5/15/2018 8:12 pm : link
a very wide allowance on that curve. Pitch 4 inches inside is a strike.
Love Andujar's potential  
Beer Man : 5/15/2018 8:13 pm : link
but he has to become more discipline at the plate
They have a half hour at most  
dpinzow : 5/15/2018 8:15 pm : link
before the really nasty, dangerous weather comes into DC
In fact if I'm the grounds crew I get the tarp on the field now  
dpinzow : 5/15/2018 8:17 pm : link
because it's going to rain so hard that just getting the tarp on before the infield becomes a quagmire will be difficult
Hicks swinging thru  
section125 : 5/15/2018 8:17 pm : link
meatballs. I love Hicks, but geez Louise you have to crush an 82 mph middle middle spinner...

If they get lucky there's a chance the really bad stuff to their north misses DC and goes out to sea to the east. Then they can get the game in

Correction, it would go to eastern Maryland and Delaware first, east of DC
Yanks have 1st and 2nd, nobody out
