Yankees have been winning, but they are still not playing up to their potential. But some of their rookies have exceeded expectations. Yankees can beat the best teams even while playing only at 80%. Yankees Triple A team could probably beat a lot of major league teams. Bird comes back this week.

Part of the problem with watching a game from home is the announcing teams have a LOT to do with how watchable a game is on tv and some are absolute garbage.

The Yankees have put together a roster that is powerful in all areas. Their weakest parts (starting pitchers and overall team defense) is still better than average and they have such a potent offense that they can outscore the opposition even if their pitching and defense falters.

Brian Cashman is a genius the way he has amassed some high prospects when he realized the team was out of the postseason picture and big name free agents and/or trade acquisitions was the way that The Boss always built a champion ship team. But Cashman has been able to utilize home grown talent, can't-miss prospects they traded for and the super stars to make this a formidable roster than nothing short of a World Series championship should be expected.

I am far from jumping on the Yankees bandwagon. As a matter of fact, I'm a native NYer who has always been a Mets fan. But as a sportswriter, I look at everything objectively and the Yankees are simply a great organization.

Great assessment Joe.

Cashman has acquired good to elite talent on multiple fronts, basically giving up nothing.  Making an HoF case if this team wins a few.

What ever happened to baseball..?

Those days are long gone... seemed like so much fun, everyone was in it for a ring, teams stuck together, each team was a TEAM with their own personality whether you liked them or hated them...

Baseball sucks now and I can't watch a single inning let alone a 9 inning game.

Wrong - if that happened to Boston it would be wonderful.    Either way, NY should win the division by a handful.  Bostonís lineup is weak in their bottom half, and their bullpen isnít stellar outside of Kimbrel.

NY's philosophy of less fastballs may have been hurting him.   I think he'd been throwing them 33% of the time or something.   Last night was 47%, and he was great.

Anything concrete to back this up?

Lead MLB in HRs and are in second place in team OPS by one percentage point.  Doing this with basically three rookies in the IF.

#1 starter is top five in baseball, maybe higher.

Bullpen statistically on pace to be the best ever.

when Sanchez gets his BA above the Mendoza line (and, also, runs out ground balls), he's a future DH ... why do the Mets want a DH?

Something like this:

Or a combo of Frazier / Florial / Sheffield / Acevedo / Andujar / Abreu / Tate, etc....

They are perfect trade partners - Mets need a reboot, Yanks need an ace, and Yankees have the players to move.

It was very odd that the Yankees had a Triple A pitcher make his MLB debut against the Red Sox yesterday. One of the most important games of the year. I do like that Chance Adams was calm and relaxed in front of a hostile crowd, in game that had a ďplayoffĒ feel to it. I could be mistaken but I think that Chance was sent back to Triple A today.

Stanton is kicking ass. He hit another home run tonight. Plus a Grand Slam last night. And I think that he may have homered the night before. Stanton hit at least one home run over the Green Monster in Boston, plus several doubles in that series.. when the rest of the team looked lost.

Supposedly, tonightís home run had the fastest exit velocity ever.

Put Judge back in there, and these two can carry the team into the playoffs and win at least one series.


And yes, I thought that the pitching was bad against The Orioles and Red Sox, but Iím getting my confidence back in these pitchers

I think Britton is just rusty and needs to pitch more to get his control back.  His stuff looks unhittable when he's on.

Chapman could be concerning, but have to give today a pass since it was a downpour.

You're likely right.

However, Boston's trotting out a shitty half a lineup, a shitty bullpen, and a coin toss SP after their #1.

I think they had what they envisioned to be their starting lineup on the field less than 10 times all year.

Now they have it, and there are zero breaks in it.  1-9 are all HR threats.   Can't believe the Voit train is still rolling.

Boone actually made two great moves - going to Betances and the defensive move with Andujar.

Both paid off nicely.

Imagine if they add Harper to replace Gardner or Cutch?

I agree Voit has been a force of nature. All Cashman btw. Shreve and I forget who for Voit's production. Hilarious.

I'm gonna miss Gardner if he does go.

Whats left of the 09' roster? CC, Robertson and Gardner? Any coaches?

Rothschild?

Think about the whole Yankees team and what they cost:

1b:  Voit for Shreve and Gallegos......so nothing
2b:   Torres for nothing - the Chapman moves from start to finish one of the greatest sequences for a GM
3B:  Andujar - IFA so nothing
SS:  Didi - Shane Greene - nothing
LF:  Cutch/Gardner - cost nothing
CF:  Big Dick Hicks - John Ryan Murphy - nothing
RF: Judge - draft - nothing.

Guy has been a wizard.

You grind it out for 162 games over 6 months and (need lots of depth) and the opening playoff series is just best 3 out of 5?  :-\  The Division Series should be 4 out of 7.

Expected to see Randy Johnson in his prime for game 1, he didn't pitch like it but they still lost.

I blame all this on Stanton 100%

He came up 2x in 2 games in 2 HUGE spots and struck out both times.....

A true MVP type player, one that gets paid the big bucks will step up in those times...

To not even put the ball in play either of those times is unforgivable and not something a $$$$ star does.

He truly sucks.



In the first game he came up with the bases loaded, no outs and struck out
In last nights game he came up with 2 runners on base, no outs and struck out



F' Stanton

Stanton was awful, but three starters in four games had terrible starts.   That's it.   The thing is, they almost overcame two of them.

Watched him pitch all year as Seattle is pretty local TV for me..

#3 starter at best... no clue why they threw money at him.

No stamina and an injury waiting to happen + giving away one of your top prospects?...

WOW

---3.76 ERA against mostly AL West teams and half of his starts at pitcher-friendly Safeco basically amounts to 4.50 ERA against mostly AL East competition and half of his starts at bandbox Yankee Stadium.

When will Cashman learn to stop acquiring NL or AL West pitchers with inflated stats in pitcher-friendly parks?


It didn't work with Michael Pineda. It didn't work with Sonny Gray. What makes you think it would work with Paxton?


So the Yankees got another #3 pitcher to complement their rotation full of #3 Pitchers


Title: Re: New York Yankees bandwagon applications open
Post by: Grape Ape on November 27, 2018, 06:36:05 AM
He does not project to be a #3 starter at best.  Sure, there's risk, but the potential is that he could be a monster.

https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-yankees-now-have-a-second-ace/

Pineda and Gray were unsuccessful for different reasons, Pineda seriously struggled with command, something Paxton doesn't seem to have an issue with.


Quote
James Paxton throws hard, and he throws strikes, and he misses bats. He doesnít allow that much loud contact. One reason heís somewhat unknown, or underappreciated, is the fact heís pitched for Seattle. The other reason is that heís had injuries. The injuries are the lone blemish, as Paxton has never proven himself a workhorse.

NY gave up a starter with control issues, who was not slated to be part of the rotation.  Paxton is a pretty major upgrade.

From a overall standpoint, the Yankees traded a season and a half of Andrew Miller for Paxton and Clint Frazier.   That's a haul.

We could've used Cano's lefty bat. Just sayin.

Quote
After days of rumblings and speculation, talks between the Mariners and Mets reached a crescendo Thursday on a blockbuster trade that would bring Robinson Cano and stud closer Edwin Diaz to Citi Field, allowing new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen to potentially strengthen his lineup and bullpen in one swoop.

According to sources, the framework of a deal has been reached and a trade between the two teams could become official as soon as Friday. The Mets are prepared to send Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak to the Mariners with former first-round draft picks Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn and likely Gerson Bautista. Van Wagenen on Thursday began informing Mets players included in the deal to prepare for a possible trade.

Seattle sure seems like a farm team for the rest of the league since Big Lou left....

What was it 2001? since then its been their motto to acquire or develop talent and give it away to the rest of the league..lol

Why would the Mets want Cano's contract?


Title: Re: New York Yankees bandwagon applications open
Post by: Grape Ape on December 02, 2018, 10:51:41 AM
I don't understand the Cano thing at all.

Mets are giving up their two best prospects Kelenic and Dunn, and picking up a 36 year old expensive ex roid guy.  While Cano will probably have decent seasons, Mets could have kept the prospects and signed any one of the elite relief arms.


Of course, they could likely swap Diaz for a serious haul at the trade deadline, should they not be in contention.


As for the Yankees, no way on Cano......Harper's out there, and fits perfect.

Harper = lifetime .279 hitter with a big ego, injuries, can barely drive in 100 RBIs if he's lucky, average home run hitter, strikes out 100+ times, and will command $30mil a season..


Actually sounds perfect for the Yankees.... never mind

RBIs are product of opporutnity.

And a batting average of .279 doesn't mean shit when the OBP is around .400 and the slugging is over  .500.

Harper's problem is that he's had two elite years, 3 good ones, and a meh.   But if he's done this all by 26, he projects to be much better as he hits his statistical prime.

Given that, Machado's a better fit for NY, due to Didi's injury and Andujar's poor defense.

I never believe any of this...it's just posturing.

But now is the time to build a super team....they have the money.  No stupid budget shit.

But never on Cashman leaving - what he's done is ridiculous - Stanton/Hicks/Didi/Voit/Greene/Torres/Robertson all everyday, above average players acquired for nothing.   Judge/Severino/Betances/Andjuar all above average players from the farm.  Sanchez comeback would add to this.   The run he's had has been insane.   But now is the time to build the team that contends for the next decade.

How do you do that if the caliber of pitcher you need to compete at WS level just isn't there.

Yankees starters and their "great" bullpen proved in the last WS they can't be relied upon

They absolutely have the caliber of pitched needed.   Heck, Boston won a WS when their ace pitched like crap the whole time.   Playoffs are about timing and luck, in addition to skill - any player can get hot at the right time.  Having better players increases the chances of that happening.

2 potential aces +Tanaka is pretty great in the postseason.   Also - Kluber/Thor possibilities, as well as mid-season pickups.

That pitching staff should be one of the best in the AL.

Yet every day all I read in the sports mags, TV or sports websites is how both Harper and Machado are like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Joe D all rolled into one..
