painfully long time between homers
Bird needs to leave the 3 hole  
NoGainDayne : 6/12/2018 8:33 pm : link
would it be such a tragedy to try Gleyber or Andujar there for a few games and see how it works out?

Not someone to nit pick at what is clearly a good season for Boone (or Cashman lol) but seems like something worth a try.
Eighth and ninth hitters both single to start the inning.  
bceagle05 : 6/12/2018 8:47 pm : link
No runs.
Stanton  
Percy : 6/12/2018 8:48 pm : link
Maybe he would do better somewhere else.
I’m taking this point from RAB  
Kyle in NY : 6/12/2018 8:49 pm : link
But I’m not sure why Bird is just anointed the three spot immediately upon returning to the lineup
MAN cc couldn’t pitch to one more guy?

Same goes for Bleedblue.



wtf are you talking about?

I have said like 2 serious things on yankee threads.

1. we need starting pitching. thats a FACT

2. sanchez has poor plate discipline. also a FACT

how am i a troll or dumb? mind explaining?
12% walk rate  
bigbluehoya : 6/12/2018 9:02 pm : link
=/= poor plate discipline
Besides everything  
section125 : 6/12/2018 9:06 pm : link
else he does well, Gleyber Torres makes excellent tags. Such quick hands.

As Didi goes yard again. 3-0 good guys.
Well now  
Greg from LI : 6/12/2018 9:06 pm : link
I think this may mean Didi's slump is over.
Ok, Didi!

I'm thinking as Didi breaks out  
dune69 : 6/12/2018 9:08 pm : link
the team will break out.
He was off the bag  
Greg from LI : 6/12/2018 9:10 pm : link
This should be an easy review
Actually don’t think he touched the bag  
UConn4523 : 6/12/2018 9:10 pm : link

Doesn't matter anyway because Romine didn't touch the bag

Wow that looked like a vintage Mariano cutter there

Another RISP fail  
13ODB : 6/12/2018 9:31 pm : link
Trying to be patient with Bird but its wearing thin. And When was the last time the Yankee offense drove a run in that was not a home run or sac fly??? I think the Gardner rbi triple last Monday other then that it’s either home run or sac flys.
wow 3 hole is just  
section125 : 6/12/2018 9:32 pm : link
that with the Yanks - a hole. Bird continues his hot hitting.

Betances vs Harper will be good.
I didn't expect Bird to tear it up when he came back,

Me either but he's a really good hitter with an excellent eye.I wouldn't have a problem if they moved him from the 3 spot but he just needs ab's and to stay in the lineup IMO. Once he gets going he'll stay going.

Close, but overhead camera showed it caught corner and he was calling the high strike all night. Most nights that is a ball.

Its ok, he squeezed Betances in the 8th.

Shutting out Washington with CC starting is pretty damn good.
CC comes through again  
Eman11 : 6/12/2018 10:03 pm : link
After a loss. It's uncanny how he comes up big after a Yankee loss and gets them right back on the winning track.

Great win!

It's a sign of a really good team. Someone always seems to step up big and tonight it was Didi's bat while the D and pitching did the rest.

Their lineup is so long they don't need to rely on just one or two guys every time. How many big hits have Andujar,Romine and Torres had already this year? Just a really good, potentially great, fun team to watch.
Boone is fantastic with the media.  
bceagle05 : 6/12/2018 10:31 pm : link
He was just giving a detailed breakdown of Didi's mechanics and how he's starting to break out of his slump - he really goes above and beyond when answering questions.

He's good like that no doubt but I have a hard time listening to him saying ummm so damn much. Dude needs to take a second, think about what he wants to say and just fucking say it.

I never thought a guy coming out of a TV booth would struggle like that in live pressers. Hopefully he gets better at it the longer he does it but he hasn't so far.
Didn’t watch tonight, but looks like a solid win  
mfsd : 6/12/2018 10:43 pm : link
Great to see Didi get going!

Saw we hit Harper twice - can’t imagibe any intent involved, but anyone think the Nats may retaliate just bc it’s Harper?

Seriously? Will you listen to yourself?

Some fucking people will just bitch about ANYTHING. Yeah, let’s hope Boone gets better at interviewing of all things. For fucks sake man. This team is having a great season and all I see in game threads is “this guy sucks, whys he playing?” Or “this guy sucks, he needs to be moved down in the order”. Or “this guy sucks, he needs to go to the minors to figure it out”. Or “our pitching sucks, we need to make a trade”. And on and on and on...

The bitching about Boone I thought had jumped the shark before, but now we have people bitching about his interviewing skills. I’m sorry for ranting, but this has just gotten out of control. You’d swear this team was a disaster by the way many of these clowns post on a daily basis.

Definitely no intent as he had two strikes on him both times. Pretty sure it was 0-2 when Betances hit him in the foot with a down and in curveball.

I doubt the Nats retaliate but I wouldn't be surprised if they did just because it was Harper.

I'm not bitching, just stating my opinion.

I gave him credit for his analysis but I can't get past all the umms. Sorry but it reminds me of a 16 year old girl saying "like" every five seconds. It just jumps out to me and is a hard listen.

Nothing more nothing less, and as I said I never expected a guy who had experience in a booth to talk like that in pressers. It's annoying as hell to me, but the good thing is I can change the channel or mute his pressers which is what I end up doing when he gets rolling with the umms.

It’s all good. I couldn’t imagine going through life this negative but to each their own I guess. The Yankees have the best record in baseball, and you don’t like Boone saying “ummm”. That right there is some petty ass bullshit. Enjoy finding other ridiculous things to drive you crazy while you miss out on the things that actually matter

To be fair, I gave you a ton of shit before, but your posts have not been bad honestly. When you were making these trade proposals for a 2nd starter, none of them sounded good. It was a bad time for our starters and you jumped right in. While not ideal, I have faith in Tanaka in the postseason, our bullpen can make CC a viable option and I have hope for Gray after his last two.

Point is ppl didnt like ur proposals for emptying the farm for some u suggested. The others (Mad Baum, Mets guys) were unrealistic.

Otherwise u have been fine. Dont sweat it

Sounds like you're the one looking for something to bitch about. I made a random observation about Boone's handling of the media, Eman made an observation about something he finds irritating. I don't think either of us are losing sleep over it, or failing to appreciate how well the team is playing.

It's been like that for weeks dude. A poster suggest that a player is not doing well and maybe should be giving a break to work on things, and that poster is flamed Beyond existence and hyperbole happens. There is no such thing as having an opinion on Yankees threads these days. I'm not talkin about the Denny's stuff or some of the idiocy posted by Stan. If you don't agree with the masses the whole thread gets derailed
good win -  
Del Shofner : 6/13/2018 12:29 am : link
what BBI is so upset about, I have no idea. It's still June and there are like 100 games to go, and we have or are tied with the best record in the major leagues. Works for me.

That's really all it is. I gave Boone credit, and am enjoying the hell out of this team. I think that's pretty obvious by my posts. Hell, I even defended Bird a few posts earlier so I'm far from a negative, bitching fan.

I certainly don't think saying I hope he gets better at it is bitching or complaining. To me that's rooting for the guy, and being positive, not negative.

I simply said I can't listen to his pressers because they are irritating with all the umms. Sure, I guess that sounds petty but it happens so much IMO, to me it's just irritating, so I either mute it or change the channel. No biggie,and it's not something I lose sleep over or obsess over. The mute button works fine.
Haha, “ummms”

Yes I know and it's really not a big deal. Thing is though I don't really tune in to get those guys insights like I do with Boone and Yankee post games.

I guess it just caught me by surprise how often he does it since I didn't expect it from a guy who has had experience in a booth and never heard him do it before. Now I can't help but notice. Again, it's not something I'm freaking out over, just a quirk that I find irritating so when it gets bad, I just mute him.

In the booth you are aware of

and practice your craft. Much easier to speak well when it’s your job to do so. He’s had a drastic career change and probably exhausted mentally after preparing for and managing every game. I get that it could be a rough listen but it’s extremely common.

Good points and looking forward to the next game thread so this discussion will be put to rest. I definitely didn't mean to derail the thread or take away from a fun,great season by bringing it up.
