______________________________________________________

Welcome back, Hicksie.

Lasagna scratched from his start - Cessa starting instead. Not clear what the reason is. Per Dune in the other thread - Adams is actually on the lineup card and Loaisiga is not - so, either he's going down, is banged up... not sure. We'll find out soon enough, I'm sure.

Fantastic trip from MIN & gt; TB with the Yanks going 7-3 in that span.

Just a half game behind TB now.

Game might be delayed tonight, but it looks like the rain will be leaving the area around 8. We'll see if they can get it in.

Wade is probably coming back up. Not ideal... but it's the most logical swap, I would think unless I'm forgetting someone.



We just picked up a triple-A infielder from some other team. Breyvic Valera. (Whoever he is ...)


And he is on the 40 man after Bird was placed on 60 day IL..I don't mind Wade coming up. He is an excellent glove.

As far as Urshela - even if he regresses to .260 or so his glove is still very good. The infield defense has looked soooo much better with Urshela and DJLM it is starke by comparison to last year.

arcarsenal : 5/13/2019 5:06 pm : link
Good catch on Valera, Del... didn't realize he'd been added to the 40 when Bird was transferred to the 60 day.

I like that Wade can play all over the field and has speed on the bases - he's just such a weak hitter. His AB's drive me crazy.

But if he's a bench guy and not playing every day, he's fine for now.

In the shower this morning? Holy shit Iíve never seen anything like this, and they should of kept Gio Gonzalez they could use him now

It is easy to say that now cause of Paxton getting hurt. But Gonzalez didn't have a place in the rotation. So you would be putting a $3 mill starter in the bullpen with no idea if he can pitch there. All his incentives were geared to start where he would be getting over 300k a start. You might as well sign Keuchel then. Everyone is waiting till after June 2nd so they don't have to give up a draft pick.

Beer Man : 5/13/2019 5:52 pm : link
A week or two ago they were saying Stanton's return would be soon after Hick's return. The report over the weekend said Stanton is still hitting off a tee, has yet to practice fielding, and his return is a big TBD with no clear timetable.
.  
arcarsenal : 5/13/2019 6:12 pm : link
Stanton definitely isn't progressing much - and it seems like they keep glossing over him during updates.

Not sure what's going on there, but I guess he's going to be a bit longer. Oh well.
Radar shows heavy rain right  
section125 : 5/13/2019 6:29 pm : link
now over the City and pretty clear after a/o 6:30p.

Not sure how the field drains, but they may be better off playing a twi-nighter tomorrow. But it is all about $$$$$$. Last thing they need is a slip and rip injury.

arcarsenal : 5/13/2019 6:33 pm : link
They've had the tarp down, so the infield shouldn't be too bad.

I bet they'll play but won't start until around 730.
With rain expected tomorrow as well  
Jints in Carolina : 5/13/2019 6:33 pm : link
They'll do everything to get this one in.
Loasiga dis probably going to end up a reliever  
Giantfan21 : 5/13/2019 6:40 pm : link
He doesn't have the durability to last as a starter at this point but he has an electric arm so they should convert him to middle relief and let him air out in the bullpen .

As far as Cessa, he threw 3 innings and 45 pitches 5 days ago so im not sure why he can't be stretched out a little more and throw 60 tonight . Boone said he can only go 2 or 3 innings and i dont understand why
Awfully Cold Up There  
Percy : 5/13/2019 6:52 pm : link
Now and later tonight -- and wet. No real three-hour rain-free window either. If rain gets in the way, maybe that's a good thing.
all this rain  
RasputinPrime : 5/13/2019 6:55 pm : link
is apparently much to do about a huge warm pocket that has been up in the arctic the last month. Global warming is going to require either domed cities or stadiums. Dealers choice.

Miggy back to IL? Loasiga with shoulder issues?

This season is just unbelievable.

arcarsenal : 5/13/2019 7:12 pm : link
My amateur weather reporting wasn't too bad - looks like they're going to start around 745. So, I was off by 15 minutes.

They really should postpone this game.

The water in the outfield is going to get someone hurt. It's not draining enough. You can literally see huge splashes of water coming out from under their feet every time they walk.

Baltimore is back here in August. It shouldn't be that hard to make one of those a day/night double dip. The August 14 game is a Wednesday @ 1:05. It's not like this is the last time they're going to be in town.

I get that they're trying to get the game played because there are fans there and the teams are out there ready to go, etc... but not only does the OF look dangerous, but the dirt in foul territory is all total slop. Someone's going to wipe out chasing a foul ball. It just looks super sketchy.

On top of that, it's like 40 degrees out.

Asking to get people hurt by forcing this game in.

Yeah but the Yanks are usually pretty good about this type of thing. They'll call games early in the day if they know they can't get it in but the tell tale sign for them is if/when they open the gates.

They usually don't open them if they don't think the can get the game in and once they do open, they'll do whatever they can to play.

Lol. I don't think Boone is 100% in control of the lineup everyday, so I have a hard time believing he'd be in charge of making this call.

Because they dumped the water from tarp in left field the game is going to be postponed. How about having a pump to remove the water from the tarp. They have all these machines like the one putting holes in the turf,get a pump.

I don't understand that, either - why does the 5000 gallons of tarp water just get dumped and redistributed back into the outfield? There's no way they can pump it out to another part of the park or just directly into the drainage system? It rained on that thing all day... there was water everywhere.

The outfield was literally covered in like 2" of water. I don't know why they let that happen. I guess the drains just couldn't hold any more.

This spring has been absolutely brutal with the rain.

It really feels like it has been raining 5-6 days a week for nearly 2 months now. I'm probably exaggerating, but that's what it seems like. We get one or two really nice days in the middle of the week and then it's back to slop.

I guess this is the tradeoff for never needing my snow shovel once last winter. Actually, I think we had that random snow storm in November, but that was it.

Hope we get out of this pattern soon and get more consistent warm, sunny days.
