Matt, I think they have to expect more than 3-4 innings from Tanaka in the postseason. If Paxton is the only guy they're expecting more from on the entire staff; we're going to burn out our bullpen well before we ever get to the World Series. They can't pitch Kahnle, Otto, Britton and Chappy every game. Chad Green can't piggyback every starter. It won't work. Someone is going to have to give them innings.

Severino should be stretched out to nearly 100 pitches by October if not 100. If he's through 3 shutout innings in a postseason game, there's no way you yank him. He's got to stay in the game.

I wouldn't ride Sevy super hard or expect him to be a workhorse, but if we're without German, I think the Yankees are going to have to use him as a Game 3 starter and then piece together game 4 with some combo of Happ/Green/Loaisiga, etc.
this season gets ever more bizarre  
Greg from LI : 9/19/2019 3:11 pm : link
So not only do guys get injured when someone comes off the DL, now this asshole does this?
Also, quite frankly I'm starting to have doubts about Ottavino  
Greg from LI : 9/19/2019 3:12 pm : link
He's stunk lately. That 2015 Royals blueprint where the bullpen goes 4+ every game doesn't work if you don't have at least 4 relievers you can rely on, and right now would you feel confident that you can rely on Ottavino?
.  
arcarsenal : 9/19/2019 3:15 pm : link
I think Ottavino will be fine - but I also think Boone needs to give him more of a break this month.

I posted a bit ago about the disparity in Ottavino's ERA/FIP numbers and that I was concerned he'd eventually hit a rough patch and 'regress' a bit. I think this might be where it's happening.

He's still having a fantastic year, but he's definitely struggling right now and probably needs a break. Would have helped if he'd just have underhanded that ball to Higgy on that play at the plate... pitchers do such weird things with the baseball when they throw to bases off flat ground.

Wow you really nailed it. /sarcasm

LOL, Yankees have 99 wins and you want to remind people you kept saying all year they'd suck with all the injuries? But hey, losing German *might* *maybe* cost them against a stacked Astros team.

Way to go out on a limb, nostradumbass
I wish someone would post this story again

just so people can say it's "German", and the poster would be like "yeah I know I said that in my post" ... Would be the best "Who's on First" joke I've seen on BBI in a long time.

Well:

I agree that we should assume its serious. Someone reached out to some authority in MLB or LE. Upon first investigation, there is an investigation.

Now, he could be targeted for blackmail or be with a chaotic person...so we should wait. But, it aint like someone called a hot line and got this result.

Remember, MLB is exposed to the Yankees, the players association and German, if they act without good evidence. So their lawyers felt they had the minimal liability to take action.

If its true, I doubt he has the stature to walk in this particular clubhouse next year. Not because they take a legal position but because he damaged an all in culture. Secondly, if its true and its the Yankees...Id make an example so every minor leaguer they have gets the message loud and clear. Sports stars are vulnerable when there is an incident...its going to get reported or reporters will find out. Its not like the old days ( meaning even 10 years ago. or five years ago pre MeToo and other consciousness raising.

So enough of that...too much speculation on my part already.

Now...lets forget best record in baseball. Lets get Severino, EE, Gary and Stanton back and sharp. That's more of a swing factor in a playoff series than HF.

Lets pray its not Oakland for the 3500 miles back and forth makes the next series very exhausting

Lets get Judge and Maybin time off ...they look like they are dragging.

Lets get Ottovino and Voit and Urshela sharp. Lets get Didi some rest.

Green and Kahnle and Otto are going to be huge swing factors for too many of our starters are not built beyond 4-5 innings

One last note, any Yankee minor leaguer that thinks the Yankees going forward are not going to care much about playing solid to good defense, was not watching this year.

This is not being built to be a team of free swinging or sloppy fielding guys or even guys prone to brain fart decisions at the plate or the base paths or the field. Yeah I know we have some guys who are sloppy...but many less and those who are have monster other contributions
Otto's throw to home last night was...

I’m told the incident involving Domingo German and his girlfriend occurred late Monday night/Tuesday morning in a public setting - he allegedly slapped her during an argument. According to an MLB source, the incident was witnessed by an official from the Commissioner’s office.

How do you feel about Didi and his 2019 .285 OBP batting at the top of the lineup in the playoffs? Do you think Did is a Yankee in 2020? I do not.
If the Yankees  
Matt in SGS : 9/19/2019 3:49 pm : link
can reduce their injuries and craziness by 50% next year from this record setting season, they might break the Mariners record for most wins in a season.

Bill2 : 9/19/2019 3:53 pm : link
I used to think that was a no brainer, but I think they have priorities:

Getting Judge and Sanchez into team friendly long term deals is one use of funds.

Getting a great fielding SS they think they can uptick the hitting is another. I think the need for depth, defense and DJ like flexibility are lessons learned.

yeah I know Estrada and Wade...those are back ups, not starting difference makers at SS.

Now, Didi may sign a team friendly deal.

Its pretty obvious to me watching Stanton throw last night and Maybin and Tauchman getting AB and Gardner, that Frazier is not out there without an upgrade on defense. At least not for the Yankees.

I don't see Voit and Ford and Andjuar and EE fitting in easily.

One thing that would keep Didi is the fact that imo, not many minor leaguers or Frazier or Andujar build trade value this year...hurt it if anything. So I don't know what they trade with to get anyone able to crack into most positions

I think they will overpay within reason to keep Romine and trade Hishagawa?

DanMetroMan : 9/19/2019 3:57 pm : link
me the "you're a Mets fan"... IF this story is accurate this looks very, very bad for the Yankees because they let him pitch knowing this "allegedly" occurred. I fully get wanting to win and the importance but this is not a good look for Boone and the Yankees. Obviously, if this turns out to be "false" then that's another story but given the accusations... it seems like it would be easy to substantiate.
how do you know Boone and the front office knew about it before today?

I don't think Torres is good enough a shortstop for the elite competition we face.

Btw, Im not sure they do much if they win. I just think they break some eggs risk wise to upgrade if German self destructed and they do not win
So, rumors...

MLB's investigation into Domingo Germán centers on an incident that sources told The Athletic took place at his residence late Monday/early Tuesday. This incident was not witnessed by an official of Major League Baseball, the sources said.

I refuse to partake of the knee-jerk reaction to judge that seems to be the hallmark of the 21st century.
I don't think Didi will be back  
arniefez : 9/19/2019 5:06 pm : link
unless he takes a really team friendly deal. I think Torres is better at SS than he is at 2B but SS is a tough position over 162 games. 2nd toughest after catcher IMO. NYY might want him at 2B for his bat. 1B still needs a real 1B but I think that's way down the list of priorities. They might like Estrada more than we do. Not sure. The Yankees are interesting 365 days a year. A lot more music than chairs in 2020 for the position players. I think this winter will be groundhog day. Try yet again to fix the starting pitching. For now the 2019 playoffs with whoever isn't hurt or suspended and that can change everything.

Gerrit Cole is going to get a lotttttt of money... he has been a fucking strikeout machine this year. But that's a guy I'd be okay with spending big on for next year.

I'd hate to see Didi go, but if that's part of what would need to happen to lock up Cole, I'd do it.
I'd still rather beat Gerritt Cole than sign him

He's the missing piece, IMO. He's the one I'd overpay for ....$35M/year for 7 years.

And c'mon, he grew up a Yankee fan. Let's not hate him for wanting to go to college.

arcarsenal : 9/19/2019 5:19 pm : link
It feels like that's always the word on the Phillies... that they're prepared to spend wildly and unconsciously. I doubt they'll go so far above his market value that no one else can even make an offer but I guess we'll see.

For now, Cole is an Astro and will be one of the biggest obstacles the Yankees will likely face if they can advance to the ALCS.

Agree, I’d break the bank for him. Doubt Hal and Cashman do. We’ll get our standard meeting with him like we have with others. Show him the Yankee culture and then bid him farewell. We’ll then move on and sign some guy at a fraction of the cost and sell him as a big piece of the rotation and continue to bolster the pen as we do every season

There's no question that Sonny Gray was an unmitigated disaster for the Yankees, but it's very difficult to identify guys like that who will end up struggling with the Yanks. For his career, Gray has a 3.30 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 8.3 K/9 pitching for the A's and Reds. He sucked with the Yankees because he couldn't handle NY, not because he's a bad pitcher.
It wasn't even that he couldn't handle New York  
Greg from LI : 9/19/2019 6:00 pm : link
What it really was, is that he couldn't handle Yankee Stadium. He couldn't pitch there effectively even when he was with Oakland.
