No reason to diss on Romine. Diss on the posters. Romine is a decent to good backup.

There is too much shit given to Romine - almost as bad as Gary gets. Just hit me the wrong way. Sorry for the thin skin.

They had every reason to pack it in. Emotional exciting series over the weekend, empty ballpark, solid vet in Cashner on the mound, Happ gets shelled down 6-1. Good teams say fuck that and rally.

FWIW, I really like Ro - he's a great backup to have.

I'm just busting the chops of those who were giving up on Sanchez last year - too many bad takes on him.

There are more than 25 teams in this league who would take Gary over their backstop in a second. Batshit that anyone would be that quick to give up on him.

Guy is just fucking mashing this year.

What a rollercoaster ride these first couple months have been with all the injuries, the tough start... the comebacks, the big innings. Fun as hell, though. Still in 1st place. Let's stay there.
I think Ken Singleton said this on the broadcast, summed this one up  
mfsd : 5/20/2019 10:52 pm : link
sometimes you have to out-hit your pitching.

Happ laid an egg, but the bullpen kept us in it while the offense chipped away.

For a team that has often been maddening with the all or nothing home run/strikeout offense, they're mostly having great ABs across the board lately. Big time tonight

That was in the 10% hit on good pitches. That was a 98 MPH fastball on the inside corner tailing viciously toward his hands. I have no idea how he even got a hit on that, let alone a HR. It takes special talent to hit that out
Amazing stuff

Stanton was 1-3  
section125 : 5/21/2019 6:56 am : link
last night with a HR for the Tarpons. Gregorios 2-5 in extended spring training. Didi had three fielding plays, too.

Might see Stanton by next Weekend?

Is it me or does it seem that Didi is way ahead of schedule? They are talking some time in June for him now.

Boy when Didi comes back the infield picture gets clarified and muddled at the same time. I think at first he sees a lot of DH to lessen stress on the elbow. But still - Torres, LeMahieu, Urshela, Gregorios, plus Tulo is taking fielding practice.......

When Stanton gets back, what happens to Morales and/or Maybin. Does Clint go back down or do they release Maybin?

Hate losing any of these contributors.
Didi is ahead of schedule -  
Del Shofner : 5/21/2019 7:09 am : link
I think the prediction was more like after the ASB.

Didi comes back, Thairo goes to SWB.

Stanton comes back, Clint goes to SWB.

That's my prediction, anyway. Guys like Maybin have no options, you would lose them and I don't think the Yanks want. Plus, even Clint would benefit from more regular ABs, I think.
Great win last night  
Eman11 : 5/21/2019 7:37 am : link
These guys are a blast to watch and even on a night their starting pitcher had nothing, they never bailed on the game.

Btw, anyone catch Sterling's call of Gleyber's 2nd homer? If you're one who finds his mistakes add something interesting to listening, then you'll love this one. The guy goes from calling a Torres double a walk off HR the other night to the opposite end of the spectrum last night.

The best case scenario was always around All Star break. The recent articles have indicated that the intent is to give him a full month of ABs to make it similar to spring training- plus with Torres' play, there is no real reason to rush him back before he is ready.

There will be a "dead arm" period in there somewhere- between the TJ and the normal stress you put on your arm when ramping up play after a long stretch off the field- better to have those days in the minors than in NY.

If he gets back in late June, that's about the best case scenario they laid out- and its good because that will be the equivalent of a trade deadline pick up.

I think that he has enough bat that when Didi returns, it might not be a bad idea to put him at 3B. Remember that when he was in the Yanks minors, they played him at 3B, 2B and SS because they were not sure where the opening would be, so this would not be a new thing to Torres.

Imagine an offensive and defensive INF of Torres at 3B, Didi at SS and DJ at 2B.

I think he probably has enough bat to play 3B as well but the guy is young and a big part of their future. I don't think you dick him around by playing him at 3B this year when Didi returns then back to 2B next year. Give him back 2B and make him a fixture there for years. (Unless of course they don't plan on resigning Didi)

I'd much rather have DJ be the guy who moves to 3B and be their utility guy on days he's not playing 3B. He'll get his 5-6 games a week between that and a DH day.

I think it will work itself out fine with Andujar gone for the year. DJ will get AB's at 3rd, spell Gleyber once a week at 2b and play 2b when Gleyber moves to SS to give Didi time off there. Not to mention people always get hurt, especially this season. I think Morales and Maybin stick when Stanton gets back, Frazier gets sent down. If everyone is healthy when Judge gets back that when I think Maybin goes. BTW Judge was on the field doing some running/throwing last night before BP. No hitting yet.

to this season so far, Gary getting back to what he was in his first two seasons might be the most satisfying. Took so much shit last season, some of it deserved, some over the top. But when he's on, there are very few like him.

Another awesome win

Just saw the replay now. I'm not sure the pitch was that far out of the strike zone but it was high 90s and tailing in on his hands - very impressive that he got the barrel around so fast on it!

arcarsenal : 5/21/2019 10:30 am : link
Boone just absolutely lights up whenever he talks about Gregorius. He literally looked giddy yesterday talking about the progress being made and how close Didi is getting to coming back.

So, I'm thinking that's a player he very much is looking forward to having back in the lineup. Heck, we all are - it's hard to find anyone who doesn't love him.

Let's push that high watermark to 13 over tonight.
Yanks are in a nice position with all the infield depth  
xman : 5/21/2019 11:45 am : link
I think if you had to choose between Torres and Didi playing SS you would take Torres not just because of age and salary but on talent. Yanks don't have to make that decision. I think we seen Didi's ceiling but not close to seeing it on Torres .

Yeah, that's a tough call though. Assuming Thairo goes back to SWB when Didi comes back (and even that's hard, because Thairo's proved his value so far), you have Urshela and DJM at 3B, Didi and Gleyber at SS, and DJM and Gleyber at 2B. Now that Morales is on the team he can play 1B when Voit isn't.

I think I remember discussion somewhere that Didi can also play 3B (maybe in connection with Machado potentially coming here), but I don't know if he ever has. If you keep Gleyber at SS as you suggest, Didi has to play somewhere regularly - he's not a sub.

A typical day for Stanton, a strikeout, HR, another strikeout, sounds like Giancarlo is in mid-season form.
Just had to laugh when I saw that. Maybe he's back by this weekend against the Royals.
Glad the offense bailed out Happ.
Facing the same team twice in 5 days,
advantage offense, even a team as bad as the odorous O's.
The Yanks said a while ago  
Carson53 : 5/21/2019 12:30 pm : link
when Didi comes back, he is NOT coming back to DH.
Does that mean a game or two once in a while as DH,
no it doesn't, but he is going to be the SS most days.
I also don't seem them moving Torres to 3B,
hasn't played there all year, don't see it.
More likely DJ moves to 3B, when Urshela has
a 'market correction'.
Would they consider  
GruningsOnTheHill : 5/21/2019 12:51 pm : link
trading Didi for pitching? That's going to be a massive contract going forward.

LeMahieu is not a sub; he has to be in the lineup. I'm seeing Torres at SS and LeMahieu at 2B.

I doubt it, they like what he brings off the field as
well to this team. He adds a lot of energy when he is around, I think they like how he interacts with the younger players. He just needs to prove he is healthy.
If he was like 32+, maybe a different story.

DJ LeMahieu has been our most consistent player all year long. I don't EVER want to see him out of this lineup!
Didi can take his time to heal; right now the middle infield with LeMahieu & Gleybor have been the solid; not to mention Urshela has been outstanding as well. The team seems to be more balanced between power and average with these guys in the lineup. Agree Frazier should be sent down when Stanton returns. He has not been the same hitter since returning from the IL; send him down where he can work on regaining his mechanics.
Anyone following this dispute between Adam Eaton...  
Dunedin81 : 5/21/2019 3:53 pm : link
and Todd Frazier, who is from Toms River and once took a picture with Derek Jeter, if you hadn't heard...

Is Frazier less of a clubhouse fixture than Yankee lore led us to believe, or is Eaton immature?
