Yanks Boston

with 15 comments

Here’s a chance for the Yanks to  turn off the Suck button and take this series from Boston

Tanaka and Eovaldi have decent shots to keep the Yanks in it through  6 or 7 innings, although Price will be on the bump Sunday Night vs Eovaldi

Price has been just OK so  far, but the Yanks will no doubt make him look like the 2015 Price, who killed the Yanks, but was overrated vs teams not out of gas like the old Bombers were last August  and September

Price has a lame 5.76 ERA and has given up 30 hits in 29.2 innings… He does own the best K rate, SO-9 / 14, He also  is 2nd in the AL in run support 7.20

He has a bogus 3-0 record and he just padded his stats against the Triple A Braves.. The Yanks should mug this chump on Sunday, and put  the Nation in a tail spin

Owens tonight has a 13.50 ERA in two  starts vs the Yanks, another beatable prospect that would temper all  the Nation’s talk  about having a top  5 farm  system.. Tanaka needs to  get 21 outs give up  2 runs max

I have no  faith in Saturday night with Pineda pitching in Boston  with  the weather a bit chilly… That said, banging Porcello  around would also put the Nation in a tailspin… This guy  was a point of contention with  their fan  base, based on his mediocre 2015 season, and his 4 yr $82M contract

He’s been decent this yr, again he padded his stats vs Atlanta but he was also on the winning side of two games vs Toronto… He gave up  7 runs and 9 hits in 12.1 innings vs Team Canada.. He gave up  3 runs in 7 innings vs Tampa Bay

His run support has been  5.25, good for 10th in the AL…

  1. … I’m down for dumping Tex, Carlos, and Chapman at the deadline if they’re out of it, probably never happen but it makes sense to get something for these guys

    I’m not in a hurry to flip Miller or Betances, and I’d want Chapman back as a FA…

    Some of this makes sense, and if the Yanks are serious about rebuilding they’ll join the tankers, hell they used their revenue as an advantage for many yr’s, now they should use the trends to get younger…They’re not fooling the fan base, everybody understands if they flip guys at the deadline, especially the contracts they have no interest in tendering

    Of course Carlos and Tex would have to agree to waive their no trade, but if both guys get traded mid season, the Yanks can’t attach a Qualifying Offer to their free agency, so it’ll make them more attractive as a Free Agent
    It all makes sense

    From Mikey 2 Chins mailbag

    Carlos Beltran: Royals, White Sox, Astros, Indians, Giants.
    Mark Teixeira: White Sox, Astros, Cardinals, Indians.
    Brett Gardner: Giants, Indians, Royals.
    Miller & Dellin Betances: Pretty much every team.
    Michael Pineda & Nathan Eovaldi: Many teams. They all need pitching.
    I’m sure the Yankees could find a taker for Starlin Castro, but he seems like someone they’ll keep and build around. Same with Didi Gregorius. Those two are keepers unless you get blown away with an offer. Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury are a tad too pricey to be moved, I think. It would be different if they were rentals, but they still have multiple years left on their contracts.

    As I said yesterday, the Yankees need to be honest with themselves and trade away players at the deadline if they’re out of it. Chapman, Teixeira, and Beltran are the obvious candidates to go because their contracts are up after the season. They shouldn’t stop there though. See what teams are willing to give up for Gardner and Miller again. Same with Pineda and Eovaldi. Even Betances. It doesn’t hurt to listen.

  2. All this talk about what the Yanks will or will not do at the deadline seems a bit premature. We’re not yet 1 month thru the schedule & we’re thinking about who to shed then? Let’s see where this fake playoff run takes us first.

    • Yanks would have to be 15 games out before Hal would send up the white flag mB

      If that’s the case lets get some prospects

      Mets got Wheeler for Beltran

      They got Syndergaard for Dickey

      I’ll take that before a 1 game wild card loss

      Take the 2 up coming Boston series, and the O’s series, and end the tank talk

  9. This is all on Girardi you can see he wasn’t finishing every thing was up
    Shreve and Betances in the pen

    Once Tanaka is up he’s dead

    Bad job Girardi

  10. It was just a matter of time,, wasn’t it?
    Genius Joe Gotta Go !!

  11. Tough loss they beat the Yanks strength
    Their two best pitchers
    Both Bogarts and Ortiz knew the breaking pitch was coming from Betances

  12. Yanks had 10 of the first 20 batters reach base,managed 2 runs off a stiff that was knocked out after 3.1 innings last start! Castro thrown out at home,Ellsbury thrown out at 2nd on missed hit and run,plus grounded into 2 double plays! Lets face it,they fkn suck.They cannot hit,period. You can rightfully second guess GeniusJoe,but they should have had a lot more than 2 runs when Tanaka ran out of gas. Poopi hit another homer vs the Yanks-what else is new? Betances is human,he got beat. Headley seems to have forgotten how to play baseball,time to send him to the dl. The team needs a shake up,bring someone up from the minors like Refsnyder,put him at 3b. Do something while they are doing nothing. Disgusting to watch,this team is headed straight to the toilet. The lefties on the sux started going the opposite way vs Tanaka & Betances which led to their runs,our “hitters” keep pulling and grounding out into the shift.
    Moronic and pathetic!!!!!!!!!
