People who only show up to whine after losses in the midst of a season where we've been without half our team, yet have been wielding the best record in baseball recently and have had a double digit lead in the division... yeah, you deserve to get shit for shit takes.

Who are these baseball teams that just don't have any issues or don't lose any games? I'd love to know.

German is a hell of a pitcher  
MetsAreBack : 8/21/2019 9:59 am : link
The concern will be the innings put on his young arm this year and his stamina come October ..., not whether he can throw a complete game shutout against the Astros.

Iím sure the Yankees have a plan to manage his workload in September (Iím surprised heís throwing Sunday actually). And on the latter I imagine most of the rotation this October will only be asked to go 4-5 innings before handing it over to the world class bullpen.

IIRC, the Yanks just said they are not worried about his innings and he will keep pitching as normal. He is 27 y/o, not 22. Was out for almost a month when the hip got hurt so they are considering that a reset (I thought that would be a consideration).
yes, it's obvious that the plan is to follow the 2014-15 Royals model  
Greg from LI : 8/21/2019 10:03 am : link
5 innings from a starter, 4 from the pen.

Thing is, though, that's pretty hard to do game after game. We'll see what happens. I'd feel a helluva lot better about it if Betances can come back and pitch like his old self.

arcarsenal : 8/21/2019 10:06 am : link
It will likely be a combination of skipping a September start (or two), plus having him work as an "extended opener" where he starts, and goes more than an inning, but probably gets capped between 50-75 pitches and only goes 3-4.

The September roster expansion should provide a good bit of relief for the starters where needed. I think we'll also likely get a look at Garcia... maybe he can help the team similarly to how Phil Hughes did as a reliever in 09.

Severino and Betances look like they're on the right path. So more reinforcements should be coming. Not sure what to expect from Montgomery - or when - but that's another potential arm that could factor in and help soak up some innings.

I also think Loaisiga is going to work well in his current role. He pitched well last night in relief. Only gave up one hit in 2+ innings of work, IIRC.
Big test for the Yanks...

...on this west coast swing playing two very strong teams.
I thought they changed September roster expansion rules?

I believe you can only carry 28 players now (vs 26 from April to August)

Effective next year. Can still utilize the entire 40 this year.

Dude has no clue. German is a bad pitcher? LMAO.
It was disappointing  
Carson53 : 8/21/2019 10:35 am : link
letting up back to back homers with two out in the first,
gotta close out the inning. Yanks starters are prone to the
gopher balls (go check out the numbers for each starter).
Lets see If Happ can give them five quality innings tonight. That's about all you can expect from him at this point.
The good news last night was that German didn't get hurt on the mound, for a moment, didn't look good!

It is a long, tough trip out there. A few more runs would have changed everything last night. A good opposing pitcher throwing a good game is hard to beat -- for anyone, even the Yankees. Let's see how it goes tonight.
A good opposing pitcher is indeed tough to beat  
Greg from LI : 8/21/2019 1:57 pm : link
Homer Bailey is not a good pitcher.
.  
arcarsenal : 8/21/2019 4:11 pm : link
Bailey looked like he was wearing parachute pants last night. Looked like he took the wrong pair or something.. I guess he's into the baggy look.
feels like every year  
Bill2 : 8/21/2019 4:41 pm : link
even in championship years, we have a tough West Coast road trip with the A and Angels. Or we come back and play listless a few days

Honestly, its now time to get some of our pitchers back and get Voit and Hicks and Judge and Sanchez to at least their average threat level.

Look at that list: Severino, Betances, Voit, Hicks, Judge and Sanchez. 40 days to go.
Question re Voit  
Percy : 8/21/2019 5:20 pm : link
How he possibly play full out with a sports hernia? I mean medically how can it be expected to affect his play and his swing?
Judge's homer  
BigBluesman : 8/21/2019 5:22 pm : link
was huge. Hopefully that was a turning point for him.

May not be as bad as thought. They had him do exercises - may have built the area up. His swings in the batting cage looked pretty full.
Good to see Voit isn't far off.

Amazing how many IL stints this team has had and we still have a dominant record.

Happ vs. Fiers

We know Happ will give up a HR.. we just don't know how many or what inning. I'll settle for one solo shot or two run shot if it means he gives us 6 innings and doesn't give up much more than that.

Watching games at this stadium drives me absolutely insane with the drumming and vuvuzelas... it's horrendous.

They just won something close to 15 of 18 games. They are going to wim 90 games again - but yeah, they are a terrible team - as are the A's and who did they beat last week? The Astro's? Terrible teams.


Aside from Meadows. Who is good in there lineup??? Choi Díarnaud Angular. Keimaier. Heredia. Zunino. Yea these guys are awesome. They do not have a single batter who is hitting over .280 and they also havenít played a team with a winning record all summer aside from Boston and the Yankees.. so I donít want to hear how them won 15 out of 18

Mike Graves- Did you ever ask yourself why you are such a miserable fuck when your team- (supposedly your team)- is tied for the best record in baseball. How many people have to defend the Yankees this year for you to be satisfied. Go sit on some barb wire and think about it for awhile.

What exactly do you expect?

It seems like no matter what, you're just going to fucking complain after every single loss as if we're supposed to go 162-0.

How many teams in baseball would you trade seasons with right now and going forward?

I'll wait....
Ignore him.  
section125 : 8/21/2019 10:00 pm : link
He says Tampa sucks because they don't have any name players despite the fact they are likely to win 90 games again. Same goes the Oakland - all they do is win.

Just wants to argue.
