God damnit.

Didi ripped that.

Bichette is a tremendous fucking pain in the ass already.

Can't catch a break in this one so far  
Greg from LI : 8/9/2019 8:54 pm : link
Didi smoked the ball twice and got nothing from it, Jays get 5 outs to score three runs
That Gardner toss really fucked that up too  
adamg : 8/9/2019 8:55 pm : link
Judge looked vacant at the plate. Gardner would have given a much better AB.

They'd prefer that Estrada plays every day. He was going to be the corresponding move for Torres if he needed an IL stint - but since Gleyber is expected to be back in the lineup soon, there's nowhere for Thairo to really get regular PT so he'd be relegated to the bench most games.

Valera obviously isn't ideal - but it's easier to just have him ride the pine 5 times a week so that Estrada can keep getting AB's in Scranton.

Seigel calls a strike on Valera  
section125 : 8/9/2019 9:22 pm : link
6 inches over the zone that was 4 inches higher than the ball he called for Janssen with Janssen being much taller. So chest high on Valera - strike. 2 inches over belt high on Janssen ball.
Judge late

this one game tonight is making me so mad. More than usual. Combo of Happ, Judge, this ump. Just a really irritating game.
Happ looked scared...  
M.S. : 8/9/2019 9:29 pm : link

...pitching in the 4th.

Wow, does he absolutely suck this year, and I don't give a shit if his team gave the Blue Jays 20 outs in that inning.

Happ pitched scared.

Gotta drop him out of the rotation come playoff time.

He just does not have a put away pitch. How many two strike hits did he give up? I'm guessing most of his hits given up were with two strikes.
These umps fucking suck

I think MLB is going to have to fine this crew. You seriously cannot blow this many calls in one game.

Kahnle is a cold streak

4 ER in last 6 games

Before that he had a streak of six hitless appearences...
His lack of control early  
adamg : 8/9/2019 9:58 pm : link
took away his killer instinct.

He needs to pitch angrier
At least Bichette didn't get a hit

only caught bits and pieces, didnít see WTF went down with Gardy, but sounds like this ump is a donkey

he looks totally lost. Too bad they couldn't give him the whole night off.

Not only thin skinned, but a huge strike zone. It made for bad baseball.
36 games over .500.  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/9/2019 11:10 pm : link
Only teams even competitive with the Yankees at this point is Houston and the Dodgers. All of the other teams are just kinda...there.
I still can't get over the two-hits call  
Greg from LI : 8/10/2019 12:26 am : link
How the hell did he come up with that?? The ball didn't come anywhere near the bat a second time.
Bring on the robots.  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/10/2019 12:29 am : link
This team would probably be 40 games over .500 right now instead of 36 if we had the robots making the calls this season.
It is fairly rare that the press  
section125 : 8/10/2019 6:45 am : link
calls out an umpire, but Segal got some "love" this morning. In the post game interview, Crew Chief Iassogna tried to explain away the ejection saying Gardy had hit the dugout roof with his bat. But the Post's Ken Davidoff questions whether that is relevant(even if it was, it was the previous pitch). And Coney explained that you cannot call the umpire terrible(personal), but normally saying a call was terrible is acceptable(within reason of course). Segal said Grady (it was Maybin) said he was effin terrible, but actually Maybin said the call was effin terrible. So Segal not only heard the wrong thing, he blamed the wrong person. So his hearing was as bad as his vision.

Also, nobody questioned the double hit it call on Maybin's dribbler.

BTW, the umps did not lose that game, Happ did, with some help.
That home ump sucked last night...  
M.S. : 8/10/2019 8:31 am : link

...my next door neighbor's Yellow Lab can call better balls and strikes.
What has always bothered me  
black aces : 8/10/2019 8:39 am : link
is that there is no accountability. Segal didn't make himself available to the media after. The crew chief dodged questions. Meanwhile you can force a 20 something year old player to face a barrage of media after messing up a game. Segal wont be called in, fined or reprimanded even behind the scenes.


Resigning

I wonder if we'd be thinking this if not for the juiced balls...

Happ's 4-seamer generates a ton of fly balls, and a lot of fly ball guys are having problems this year.

Not totally defending Happ, but some of the HR numbers around the league are absurd right now. It's August 10th and we already have 4 guys right on the precipice of 40 HR's (Yelich, Trout, Alonso, Bellinger) - at least one of these guys is going to hit 50+ and my guess is all 4 will at least get close.

A guy like Freddy Galvis is going to hit 20+ HR's this year and he's not even playing full time now that Bichette has been called up.
Happ's contract  
davek3698 : 8/10/2019 9:21 am : link
will be interesting to see how they handle his starts/innings next year if this continues.
3rd year option - ( New Window )
If they donít trade Happ  
bigbluehoya : 8/10/2019 9:27 am : link
Then they absolutely need to use an opener with him to avoid hitting the 3rd year vesting clause.

I donít really care if they light their money on fire, but for as long as ownership has an upper bound on the payroll, I canít help but care.

It would be lunacy to just stroll along like nothing is wrong and stumble into the third year of that awful deal.
As great as Brian Cashman and his  
arniefez : 8/10/2019 10:38 am : link
performance science and analytics team are at identifying and acquiring position players they are that bad at identifying and acquiring starting pitchers. Hopefully Severino and Betances can be available and effective in the playoffs. Because the Yankees are going to have to try to win 3 playoff series with very limited starting pitching.
