Soto returns, Judge gets a night off
Rodon imploded last year in KC.  
bceagle05 : 6/10/2024 7:45 pm : link
I believe that’s when he turned his back on Matt Blake on the mound. I nice shutout this time around would be just fine.
Awesome to see Soto back in the lineup.

Looks like this guy had a rough start against Cleveland in his last start, but his numbers are unbelievable this year.

Very athletic play by DJLM just now.

4-1 good guys.

Nope.

Hopefully they hold on in the 9th, and steal one against a tough pitcher--at least this season--with their "B" lineup.

I hope they make a run at Mason Miller in Oakland. Huge risk dealing Spencer Jones without knowing Soto’s future, but he can be our closer of the present and future. Locked in through 2030.
There is no excuse to walk  
section125 : 6/10/2024 10:29 pm : link
a guy. Get the ball over the plate. Just throw strikes, I don't care where.
Game over.

Great to get a W with that lineup.
Great win for the AAAA Yankees.

Meanwhile the AL Central just continues to be Yankees cannon fodder.
Yeaaa, throw strikes

get outs. No magic. And the Refugee Squad wins 4-2.
OK, despite that ridiculous walk,  
Del Shofner : 6/10/2024 10:35 pm : link
that was an enjoyable win. Total small-ball, lol.

And (Gulf of) Tonkin closed it out ...
Great win with the B Lineup and no Judge.  
Dave in Hoboken : 6/10/2024 10:35 pm : link
To get a win with Judge getting his first night off on the season is fantastic.

47-21.

Big no to that.

Remember that hard throwing young guys break down. The Yanks tried to “win” on a trade for a reliever under contract for 5 years in Effross- look how that turned out.

Just get the one year rentals- relievers are an inconsistent bunch unless you are are named Mariano Rivera.

Have to agree with that. The way Yankees seem to resurrect careers of BP arms, one year rentals seems right.
Look at Tonkin. Scrap heap guy doing well. He might be the 4th or 5th guy in the pen, but he is getting outs.

That’s fair but I’m concerned the Yankees

I’m also haunted by the money they gave Chapman.

An ERA of 3, too. And the Yanks haven't exactly had a cakewalk of a schedule, either.

Mike from SI : 6/10/2024 11:41 pm : link
but the A's are going to ask the farm for him. Unless they get an established big reliever for a reasonable price, I trust this staff/front office to find some guys. They're good at both finding guys and ditching the ones who don't work out. We'll get there.

Also we are jusssssst behind Philly for best overall record, .692 to .691.

But those dastardly Orioles are good and keep hanging in there. I like the players on that team and wish they were in another division so I could root for them.

He will get good money on the FA market. We are spoiled by Mo and expect perfection every night. His numbers are good but his WHIP is high at 1.23.

Yup, moving some runners and timely hits, who knew they could do it so consistently.

Nice to see Tonkin close it out. He looks like a guy who sold a lot of used cars in the early 80s, but Matt Blake keeps taking guys off the scrap heap and turning them into effective relievers.
Not sure I  
ManningLobsItBurressAlone : 6/11/2024 9:46 am : link
see the Yanks giving Clay a big FA contract, especially with Hal coming out and saying the payroll is not sustainable. There's obviously Juan Soto to deal with, and you have a few bigger contracts coming off the books (Gleyber, Verdugo, Rizzo, Clay). I think RP is a spot where they believe they can fill internally, or acquire a reclamation project for cheap, just like Clay.
Chapman is the only RP in recent memory they paid  
Greg from LI : 6/11/2024 10:49 am : link
They have been pretty committed to developing relievers internally and generally done well with it.
