NFT: Beltran's "niece" calling out Gleyber?

bigblue5611_2 : 1/16/2020 3:55 pm
I don't have twitter so I can't link, and I know this is not his actual niece, but my cousin just sent me a screen shot with that account stating "Just make sure they check Gleyber next year left leg Yankees use two video guys hide one in Bullpen with live feed"

I'm a Yankee fan, so I hope this isn't true, but if it is, do whatever's needed to clean this crap up in my opinion.

With their propensity for swinging at breaking balls out of the zone, I'm not thinking it's true, but who the hell knows at this point. This account has been accurate on things so far...
I just tried searching

I have the screenshot still, but not sure how to post that here from my phone?

I'm not saying this is 100% accurate, but this person, whoever they are, has put out accurate info in the past. They tweeted out 24 hours in advance that Beltran would be stepping down, they tweeted out 4 days before his hiring that he would be the next Mets GM as well. This thing about the buzzers for Altuve and Bregman has also been confirmed, in a way, by Bauer and Jomboy who both said they have heard the same thing from multiple people.

I 100% do not want this to be true, but with everything coming out, I don't think it can be completely discounted.

I'll say again though, with the amount of breaking balls they swung at out of the zone, I would have to question the authenticity of this particular claim.
Maybe Garyís season long slumps

Seriously though, if the Yankees were cheating Gary must SUCK at it.

it was in response to Jared Carrabis clawing for Yankees dirt. Jared Carrabis is a douchebag red sox blogger for Barstool. Insufferable would be an understatement.

Not sure about that one either, the only thing I could come up with is that this person meant a camera was hidden in one of the BP's?

oh yea, we def stole signs. not only are we cheaters but we are shitty cheaters as we struck out at an alarming rate in the ALCS lol.

I love this response:  
robbieballs2003 : 1/16/2020 4:15 pm : link
If anyone has seen Gary Sanchez, Stanton or Judge swing at breaking balls, you KNOW they don't know what pitch is coming!



But does the Torres situation make sense? Why are his numbers worse when nobody is on base? When runners are on and in scoring position (2and base) then pitchers/catchers switch up the signs. Wouldn't it be harder to pick up then?

when a fan of a team suffers..."every team is doing it...they are just picking on us"

I swear I heard variations of the above line of whine from half the people I know in Houston last week. And the other 50% were transplanted LSU fans preparing for the big game. Now they probably are talking about how all the pro players give cash to players from their alma mater

But crap like this and the willingness to believe by some posters gives a clue as to how big a mushroom cloud this scandal will have on baseball.

This is the kind of black eye that can generate a 15% drop in attendance ( like the damage the strike caused for a few years)

Beltran's stats were shitty everywhere, but there was a .053 advantage at home so it wasn't negligible.

They embraced gambling in 11/2018. I am inclined to think that's the reason they're reluctant to chase the buzzer story, because it would have directly impacted postseason play in 2019.

Must punish the players from the 2019 season and he better fast, the finger pointing is just starting, the Astro players are going to say it is everyone else too and this is going to get out of control fast, the players union better not get in the way either, I guess baseball cannot remain honest anymore, trying to sell the players are better then ever was always garbage, it lead to this, greed by everyone attached to the game, clean it up or the sport will not survive another scandle.

Commissioner report said there wasnít cheating in 2019, which we know is BS. They are trying to contain this and play is fans for stupid. This is going to lead to MLB and the Union coming to odds. The fans are going expect the players to be punished. Only way to make them at happen is not show up or buy merchandise. We know Astros fans will still show up as they are the ones who benefited. The Sox fans will stop showing up, because the team will suck. Will Yankee, Mets, Dodgers, etc??? That would be the only way to make MLB do something to the players.

If one team was cheating then they all were....except the Orioles; they just suck.

I mean the Twins and the Yankees BOTH broke the season HR record. there was some shit going on this season.....

You can't tell me Beltran was an 'advisor' to the Yankees and didn't clue them into what was going on...if they didn't know already.

I'm a diehard Yankees fan, but I know that they will be implicated down the line and so will other teams.

Its like PEDs in Football. Nobody is acknowlding that a huge portion of the league is taking some substance or another. Hell, these are individuals who have livelihoods at stake, very HEALTHY livelihoods. Why WOULDN'T you do everthing possible to make yourself successful?
Beltran was a spring training instructor  
Dunedin81 : 1/16/2020 6:41 pm : link
Who dabbled in some FO and prospect stuff. That was his role in the org. And he may very well have given them a heads up, and Maybin may have too. That would explain why they were so animated about it. Could they have been cheating in ways small or large? Absolutely. But typically if you know you're doing something wrong you're not going to jump up and down and ppin5 the finger at someone else for doing the same thing. The homeruns were clearly a product of a juiced ball first and foremost, that's not particularly relevant.

Yep.

Like with the PEDs, MLB really doesn't do an excellent job of policing its sanctioned cheating. I don't accept for a second that there was any question that technology has been misused to give teams an advantage. As a fan, I shouldn't have to find out about it. Handle your own shit better Mr. Manfred.
I can't really think of an effective and fair way to punish the  
Jim in Hoboken : 1/16/2020 9:05 pm : link
players, how do they decide whom to punish, whoever caught on camera banging on the trash can? And how many games? 1 game suspension for hitting a 2B after a bang or whistle and 5 games for a HR? There is simply no way to enforce it, that's probably why they aren't doing it.

And anybody with two eyes could see that the Yanks were all guessing and missing during the playoffs, maybe only Gardner, DJ and Gleyber (for the first few games) were putting up good AB's. Sanchez, EE, Stanton, and to an extent Judge all looked like they were hitting blind-folded.

Most Red Sox all took a step back in 2019, it will be interesting to see how they and the Astros players hit in 2020. Honestly I don't think you'll see a huge drop-off.

Stu11 : 1/17/2020 10:28 am : link
Its team strikeout % that does. The 3 years prior to 2017 the Astros were 27 29 and 29 in MLB. The past 3 seasons they are top 2 every season. Come on of course you can make organizational changes in philosophy but there is no way you go from last to first over night in a stat like that without some artificial help.
