NFT: George King - NY Post - Grades the Yankees

section125 : 7/10/2019 8:24 pm
Article rating the Yankees players for the 1st half.

Some interesting ratings. Some I think strange.

Gardner a "C" same as Tauchman...guy plays 84 of 87 games hits 14 HR, plays sparkling defense but he's a "C".

Gary Sanchez a "B" while Austin Romine gets an "A". I can understand giving Romine a good grade for being a good backup. But how does he rate higher than the All Star starting catcher??

Kahnle an "A" but Ottavino a "B" - ok. Tommy has pitched well no doubt and I don't dispute his grade, but has he been better than Ottavino.

Urshela a "B"?

Anyway, I think he did not do a very good job, especially when you compare grades between players.

plate but has come on since then; I can accept the C for him. The others that you point out are ridiculous.
This is awful

A “B” for Urshela, what!!!!! Man is literally having a career year.
The Sanchez-Romine thing makes absolutely no sense.

On what planet is Luke Voit's first half performance less than an "A"? Was anyone expecting better than a top 20 in baseball wOBA?

The Yankees need more bullpen. Insurance against Chapman opting out, insurance Betances needs more time, insurance Tampa or Houston don't fill out their weaknesses.

Still crazy after all these years.
Sanchez is a legit mvp candidate

Which means he’s better than “good”
I mean, it's George King.

You might as well say you don't think Spongebob Squarepants is very good at grading nuclear physicists.

I can't. He's unique and a great Yankee.
Romine isn't even a good backup

He's mediocre behind the plate and godawful with the bat.

I agree he's too inconsistent with the bat. Most disagree with your assessment of his catching. I don't see anything great there, but he is a backup. If he was good he'd be starting somewhere.
Romine

Is a solid B. He is a solid backup, very good reciever, solid defense all around, he is a fair hitter with a little pop. A grade of B is because backup duty is a tough job which he has embraced.
he's a rag arm and mediocre at calling a game

Romine grade makes me think that King was a frequent poster on BBI last season!!

your opinion. The pitchers disagree with your assessment. Of course next to Sanchez arm and release, every catcher in baseball (save one or two) is a rag arm and Higashioka is even worse.
