Not going to see Cano on the M's anymore. We will see King Felix but his contract is the only thing extraordinary about him now.

Very impressive that the Yanks took 2 of 3 from the Twinkies. Now we need to stop with the injuries and get some players off the IL.

Can't believe Paxton is hurt now too. Does that mean that we see Keuchel in pinstripes soon. I heard the Yanks might be in on Keuchel if they don't need to give up a draft pick. I also heard Dallas might just sign a 1 year deal, but if so, why wait so long?

Andujar is looking a little rough in the field. (Rougher than usual).

Let's go Yang-Keys!

2 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 5:40 pm

Come on, big milliliter

3 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 5:47 pm

Luuuuuuke!

4 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 6:11 pm

Ah, the old, I take the dog for a walk, the Yankees score a bunch of runs gambit.

5 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 6:12 pm

And it was Estrada’s first

6 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 6:29 pm

King Felix’s crown is quite tarnished

7 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 6:35 pm

Nice play, Gio

8 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 6:49 pm

Nice to come to a 7-2 lead.

9 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 6:51 pm

If Urshela keeps hitting, there is no reason to play Adujar at 3rd.

He doesn't make either of those plays ...

10 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:07 pm

Five and fly for CC. In line for the win.

11 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:15 pm

Boone listened to me.

12 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 7:23 pm

Holder not living up to his name recently ...

13 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:24 pm

Um, Holder . . .

14 Boatzilla   ~  May 6, 2019 7:30 pm

DEFENSE!

15 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 7:30 pm

THAIRO!!!!

LOVE this left side of the infield!

16 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:31 pm

Thairo with the throw

17 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:45 pm

Good job, O

18 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 7:51 pm

Still want more runs

19 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 8:08 pm

[18] STILL WANT MOAR RUNS!

20 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 8:15 pm

Win 248 for CC

21 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 6, 2019 8:18 pm

[13] Is Holder dating Boone's daughter or something?

22 rbj   ~  May 6, 2019 8:29 pm

[21] Or he has some embarrassing photos.

23 Boatzilla   ~  May 6, 2019 8:36 pm

[21] I think he's more of a "place holder".

Nonetheless, good win!

24 cult of basebaal   ~  May 6, 2019 9:32 pm

Something funny for tomorrow night's game, Jordan Montgomery and other rehabbing Yankees taking time to visit a sick child in a local hospital:

https://mobile.twitter.com/Gumbynation34/status/1123307552949690368?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet

Hospital? Sick child?? What's funny about that???

3 of the 4 first responses to the tweet asked whether they stopped by to visit Jacoby Ellsbury while they were there ...

25 Chyll Will   ~  May 7, 2019 5:34 pm

[21] [22] [23] Yanks always seem to have one player on the roster who manages to be the designated stumbling block. The players take turns with that designation throughout the season; get rid of one and another pops up. Cosmic slop.

26 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 5:44 pm

Hi Banter! I miss you all. I also miss half of our starting team. And I missing winning lots of Whirled Serious rings. Hell, I miss two weeks ago when the Shit Sox were losing every game.

What I miss the most is...RAB. The loss has been devastating and I’ve been lost without that site. I totally missed a day game last week, ‘coz I had no idea...

Luckily, Mike Axisa is still writing a little bit about our Pinstriped Heroes! He’s offering a weekly “Thoughts” post, along with *one* Mailbag question, through Patreon for a measly $3/month.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but it was a no brainer. I signed up immediately and it’s already been awesome! It is so far beyond absolutely worth it. I can’t recommend it more highly. He’s already over 1,000 subscribers!!! And that’s without proper advertising. He deserves this and so much more. I hope you’ll support him!

27 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2019 5:47 pm

NOSTRA!!!

You sticking around for the game?

28 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 5:52 pm

Cult! Ah, prolly not. I have it on Roku now. Waiting for my wife to get home from work to have dinner, then I need to get in the studio. But, I’m gonna try to be in/out throughout.

Axisa is up to 1,141 subscribers!!!

29 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2019 5:57 pm

Sweet!

30 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:00 pm

Squeezed

31 cult of basebaal   ~  May 7, 2019 6:01 pm

Squeezed and screwed.

32 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:08 pm

I’ll take the just one run, but Tanaka doesn’t look sharp, though the ump screwed him a bit

33 rbj   ~  May 7, 2019 6:12 pm

[28] Good for Mike.

Just got in from dinner, a nice juicy Uno burger, with baked fries. Then walked the dog.

34 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:14 pm

Yeah, he’s at over $40 THOUSAND dollars a year already, to write the weekly post. Amazing!

Nothin doin’ early for our boys...

35 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:15 pm

Speedy leadoff guy on base. No bueno

36 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:16 pm

Nice n easy!!

37 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:18 pm

I approve of that frame, with very few pitches thrown.

38 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:22 pm

Gio! I'm diggin' this guy.

39 rbj   ~  May 7, 2019 6:23 pm

Keeping a superior defender at third while making a good hitter DH? What craziness is this?

40 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:25 pm

Big ballpark out there in right

41 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 6:26 pm

Frazier loom terrible on defense before he got hurt this year. He has not improved. Boo.

What a win!!!! I can’t we won that slopfest

79 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2019 10:08 pm

WAHOO!!!

80 Greg G   ~  May 8, 2019 3:21 pm

I wonder what is going to happen when we get Didi back to the infield? I assume Bird is done for the year? The Yanks could use a useful lefty bat but Bird just can't stay healthy. LeMahieu has been great but I realize the season is still young. Gio has such a slick glove, and Andujar wasn't great in the field before his injury. I think Miguel was pressing offensively before getting injured. It is a nice problem to have that you have too many quality players but how you gonna keep em down on the farm after they've seen Paree?

81 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 5:43 pm

Let’s go Johnny Lasagna.

Bird at this point is trade bait. For minor league depth.

82 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 5:48 pm

Nice snag Tauchman.

83 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 6:36 pm

Greetings all, on this most wonderful of days, a Spurs day, a we're-going-to-the-CL-finals day!

84 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 6:37 pm

[81] Yeah, let's see Bird hit against AAA pitching at this point before assuming he even deserves to be considered for a 25 man roster spot.

85 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 6:43 pm

Not good, Johnny.

86 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 7:04 pm

Not our night.

87 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 7:07 pm

Nope, let's hope we don't get no hit.

88 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 7:30 pm

A hit!

89 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 7:33 pm

Two in a row

90 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 7:34 pm

And a run, shutout gone too.

91 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 7:35 pm

A run!

92 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  May 8, 2019 7:46 pm

[83] CL Final one of the only soccer games I go out of my way to try and watch. All Premiere League this year?

Kikuchi was bringing it today?

93 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 7:47 pm

Kikuchi was definitely keeping us off balance today.

94 Boatzilla   ~  May 8, 2019 7:53 pm

I don't know anything about Kikuchi. He looks good.

95 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 7:59 pm

[92] If you missed the semis this year, you missed the best semis, you could or will likely see in your lifetime.

Liverpool came back from a 3-0 first tie deficit to beat Barcelona 4-3 (aggregate) at Anfield yesterday ... and not to be outdone, Spurs came from a 3-0 deficit at half-time today to score 3 goals in the 2nd half and beat Ajax 3-3 (away) in Amsterdam.

Un-fucking-real 2 days of football.

96 Boatzilla   ~  May 8, 2019 7:59 pm

[94] BTW, I wrote that before I say your post RBJ. [blushes]

97 cult of basebaal   ~  May 8, 2019 8:00 pm

[92] Glad to see him gone, but I liked watching him work. Sad we'll never see American pitchers like that again ...

98 Boatzilla   ~  May 8, 2019 8:01 pm

Jake Barret? Sounds like a member of Bonnie & Clyde's gang.

Without RAB, I have know idea who these guys are.

Blech.

Game over, man, game over.

104 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 8:07 pm

Kikuchi wanted to come to the states out of high school. He’s got an odd contract, if the Mariners don’t pick up his option a year early, he can opt out right away. I think. It’s really odd.

Sigh.

105 rbj   ~  May 8, 2019 8:07 pm

Time for Forged in Fire.

106 Greg G   ~  May 9, 2019 10:30 am

Kikuchi's hat was caked in Pine tar. I guess the umps missed it? Still a great outing. Too bad because Tampa finally lost a game.

Sale threw a great game against the Triple A O's.

Season is heating up, let's see if we can get Hicksy back this weekend and do some mashing.

107 rbj   ~  May 9, 2019 12:34 pm

Betances to the 60 day DL. So, after ASB?

[154] Why is he not still rehabbing? Looks like Hicks will be back before he even gets a hit in the minors. There's no reason to rush these guys when their replacements are doing just fine.

For a bullpen that is supposed to be great I never feel comfortable no matter who's out there.

170 rbj   ~  May 10, 2019 8:34 pm

Walking the bases loaded is never a good idea.

171 Ara Just Fair   ~  May 10, 2019 8:35 pm

Uh, warm up someone else.

172 thelarmis   ~  May 10, 2019 8:35 pm

Tommy Tightpants only threw 10 pitches. I thought he’d go back out for the 7th.

Otto’s not throwing anything fast...

173 thelarmis   ~  May 10, 2019 8:35 pm

Great. Holder warming up.

I generally like the mlb.tv interface, but one thing that they get wrong is the scoreline at the bottom updates in real time, even if you have the game paused, so I was watching the 7th while the game had gone to the 9th. Sort of takes the suspense out of it.

274 cult of basebaal   ~  May 13, 2019 4:46 pm

[274] Oh, wait ... it gets better!

NEW YORK -- Miguel Andújar is headed back to the injured list with a right labrum tear, the Yankees announced on Monday. Manager Aaron Boone said on Monday that the club planned to order new imaging tests to further explore the state of the infielder's ailing right shoulder.

Andujar sustained the torn labrum by diving back into third base on March 31, but he was able to return to the lineup after following a rehab protocol.

Left-hander Nestor Cortes Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move.

The Yankees initially believed that Andujar's injury would affect only his throwing, not his hitting, though nine games of results have suggested that is not the case. Since being activated from the IL on May 4, Andujar is 3-for-34 (.088).

"We feel like even though he's passed everything and the strength tests have been good and [we] rehabbed him properly, we do feel like the injury is certainly a contributing factor to some of the struggles," Boone said. "I think we'll reassess all that and try to get a plan in place to try and get him back."

Though, tbf, he hasn't looked at all right since coming back, so maybe this is for the best.

275 rbj   ~  May 13, 2019 5:03 pm

Really, Miggy Jr. should just have surgery. Probably Lasagna too.

291 Greg G   ~  May 14, 2019 6:45 pm

By the time the Yanks play again, all these guys might be off the DL. Love...Rain o'er me...

Andujar anduaint playing again this season is my bet. It didn't look like he was having any discomfort batting, but the results just aren't there. So far they have good coverage and when Sir Didi comes back, they will be flush with infielders (we hope).

Now that the Yanks are losing Loaisaga and Severino hasn't thrown an inning, I wonder if Dallas will be on the Yanks wish list soon?

In other news, looking like a smart move on the Yanks part in not resigning Robertson.

Let's go Yang-Keys...on Wednesday I guess?

292 rbj   ~  May 14, 2019 7:48 pm

Kendry Morales? From the A’s. 1B/DH. Tells me we aren’t going to get guys back soon. Season ending surgery for Miggy Jr.?

293 Chyll Will   ~  May 14, 2019 9:56 pm

[292] I'd guess he's a benchwarmer for one of the regulars potentially coming back soon; don't really know who at this point. They moved Loaisaga to the 60-day, not a surprise there. I think they're also waiting to see how Andujar responds to treatment before deciding whether or not to shut him down for the season; frankly he was rushed back too soon and it showed, so he's probably done for the year. Morales has lightning-in-a-bottle potential; not anything like Voit, but he's a proven hitter and can handle 1st at least as well as Voit, so it's not necessarily a bad signing UNLESS... well, lets not even speak on that. The Yanks are straight-up buying these older players for pennies on the dollar and getting bang for their buck for the most part, yet I bet they expect the core of their lineup to return this year and aren't prepared to make any long-term decisions when they only have one chance to do so (July 31). So far, their pickups have been far better than expected, so there just might be something worth waiting for with Morales. If not, they can cut him, they only lose chump change.

[291] Nobody's thinking of Keuchel until after the draft. He gambled by not taking the QO from Houston and lost; no team wants to lose their high draft pick AND sign him to a ludicrous contract or just have him for four or five months of Sonny Gray-ish returns.
