NFT: Yankees vs. Mariners game 1

Greg from LI : 6/19/2018 3:48 pm
Time for a new thread. I've always had particular contempt for the Mariners for 1995. Still pissed about that series. Anyway, the Mariners have been playing way, WAY above their heads. Time for some regression to the mean.

Hicks - CF
Judge - RF
Stanton - DH
Gregorius - SS
Sanchez - C
Torres - 2B
Bird - 1B
Andujar - 3B
Frazier - LF

Gordon - 2B
Segura - SS
Haniger - RF
Cruz - DH
Seager - 3B
Healy - 1B
Span - LF
Zunino - C
Heredia - CF

German vs. someone named Marco Gonzalez

right now. Catch the ball, get sign, throw the ball, repeat.

We are all seeing

the same thing with German.
Lot of bats waking up right now  
mfsd : 6/19/2018 8:44 pm : link
Hicks, Stanton, Didi. I feel like Sanchez and Bird are close too

On the broadcast Kay said El Gary’s lineout to LF was the hardest hit ball in MLB so far this season at 121 MPH. Previous high was a ground ball single by Judge at 119.9 on 5/27

And German looks brilliant tonight

They need 28 spots on this roster....


I've thought for a while MLB should have 27-28 man rosters but only have 25 active each game. It's about paying the players though so it'll probably never happen.

I feel the same about the NFL.

Bird seems to be hitting a lot of balls at people, the shift has a lot to do with that. Sanchez, I'm not sure. He is making decent contact tonight, but last night he looked frustrated and lost. That first game where he struck out on a pitch that bounced 1 to 2 feet in front of the plate was just ugly.

This game is flying.

It's not even 9pm and we're just about halfway through 7.
Can't ask for more than that from German  
Eman11 : 6/19/2018 8:58 pm : link
Great,impressive outing against a really good team.

He showed me something in the game he lost to the Stros at the Stadium a couple of weeks back. He gave up the early 3run HR but bounced back to get a bunch of K's and weak outs just like tonight. Two top hitting teams he had a ton of swings and misses against.

Gotta love it.

Can probably give Betances the night off now.
Judge needed that, hard clean line drive RBI single

Even the Yanks foul balls and outs are being crushed tonight

Good game for Warren in relief I think
Bah, Didi just got under that one

And the guy didn't miss a beat. He did the same thing last time he had a long layoff. Came in and went right to work.

Gotta let him finish this one I'd think.
How much fun are these

Really impressive - I didn't think he'd be nearly as sharp.

I think Gleyber broke StatCast.. LOL

Good point. Paul was my favorite Yankee during the late 90's/early 2000's. So, to hear my favorite Yankee from those great teams gush about this lovable Yankees team has been an absolute treat for me.
nice wish they were all that easy! lol

German was really sharp and with  
section125 : 6/19/2018 9:43 pm : link
such an easy delivery. Best game yet. Maybe he'll settle down. Just need him to get out of the 1st inning....
Gleyber's played 50 games - 14 HR / 35 RBI.  
bceagle05 : 6/19/2018 9:47 pm : link
Quite an introduction.
Damn that AJ Cole pitches once every 3 weeks  
Stu11 : 6/19/2018 9:49 pm : link
but damned if he doesn't just come in and get everyone out whenever they ask.
Chapman needed a night off badly  
Kyle in NY : 6/19/2018 9:50 pm : link
Fun to watch this group when they’re launching like this

Gary is going to breakout soon. Keep squaring the ball up like that and he’ll be fine

German has special stuff. Fastball command and some first inning issues the main obstacles for him right now but he’s getting a lot of swings and misses

Crazy to think that as good as Felix was for so long, he never got to throw a single pitch in the postseason.

That should finally change this year. But he's a far, far cry from the elite CYA winner he once was.
This team is special. And they are so deep that they keep trading  
yatqb : 6/19/2018 10:04 pm : link
MLB-ready players for younger guys or IFA money. So they can keep signing more IFA prospects than most other teams. So the talent will keep coming for years. Great time to be a Yankee fan!
I'm not trying to be the Yankee version of Baghdad Z here  
Greg from LI : 6/19/2018 10:21 pm : link
But Cole WAS a top 100 prospect not too long ago. Maybe they found something in him.
Cole has been a pleasant surprise

Hasn't been hurt, they literally just haven't needed him. The pen had something like a 0.50 ERA over the last ~3 weeks. Pretty much every single guy has been dominant whether it be Green, Holder, Betances, Chapman, Warren, or Robertson. Shreve is really the only guy who hasn't pitched that well.

Just absolutely loaded on the back end right now - and that's what you need to be playing deep into October.

This team is set up beautifully right now. I really wouldn't mess with this.

True and good point. Kahnle is also working his way back. We have had unbelievable pitching for a long stretch.

Yup. When the Ace loses it ramps up the pressure on the rotation. They've got two more in Minn and then home to Seattle.

They were down 2-1 into the top of the 8th and tied it up only to have the Twins get four in the bottom of the 8th off their pen. Scott and Kelly coughed up the four runs.

Heading to top 9.

with Boston (and Houston) losing. Beautiful.
Oh wow, it was a Sale game that BOS lost, too.

Even better.
Andujar is going to be a stud, too.  
manh george : 6/20/2018 3:03 am : link
The Yankees have so much young talent right now that it is really easy to forget how far ahead of schedule he is as a 23-year-old power hitter.

427 feet HR tonight (linked). 11 of his last 18 hits have been for extra bases. Of course, he leads all rookies in extra base hits. And he's 24th in the entire majors in OPS. Think about that: The average major league team has 0.8 players with a higher OPS than Andujar, and only what's his name, that second base guy, has a higher rookie OPS with at least 50 games played this year.

It's too deep into the season to be a fluke.

I watch the pitching  
Alwaysblue22 : 6/20/2018 9:54 am : link
Domingo German has really great stuff. He can throw hard and his breaking balls have late movement, and he has a above average change up. Many of the strikes he threw were un-hittable. Here is a guy who was somewhat overlooked and unheard of but he has shown he belongs in the Major Leagues and deserves to be a permanent member of this rotation. A much better pitcher than Sonny Gray, in my opinion.
