    As per the instructions of Hal, Brillo, Lon, CashMan, & Crazy Joe, the Yankees made a major announcement today.
    In an effort to continue to monitor the bottom line, PTB reporters have learned that Rob Thompson is no longer the sole bench coach sitting next to & advising Crazy Joe.
    Don Butchini has been named part time bench coach/greeter at the Stadium. Thompson has agreed to a pay cut, but the salary of Butchini remains undisclosed.
    There are rumors from undisclosed sources saying this was done in light of the recent positive comments made by Butchini regarding the Mutts. Butchini, trying to dodge the press, declined to comment.
    We will continue to monitor the situation.

    • Excellent work by your staff don Moscone
      I just hope no photos surface of the DonB carousing with the cross town rivals


      April 4, 2017 at 7:26 pm

  6. Sanchez looked in between that first AB
    Sanchez and Bird need a few knocks to get them going
    At least Bird is taking walks


    April 4, 2017 at 7:32 pm

  7. If Torreyes and Kozma need to be Ph for

    Maybe Judge ought to be batting 2nd

    Or Torreyes lol Torreyes leads the Yanks in HR’s

    Now we’re cooking

    Girardi said Castro will move to SS and they’ll either move Bird to 3B, Headley to 2B and Carter to 1B. Or put Romine at 2B, leave others.

    • Sanchez is a sucker for that top of the strike zone FB
      Might have start thinking about the 2 and 3 hole, take some pressure off these two
      Poetic justice ball getting lost in that dump Yanks 3-0


      April 4, 2017 at 7:50 pm

  8. Torreyes might Wally Pip Gregorius

    Torreyes is the DonB’s boy he’s been saying to start him for a yr


    April 4, 2017 at 8:06 pm

    • Odorizzi is owning the top of the strike zone Sanchez twice Judge once

      Baby bomber kryptonite


      April 4, 2017 at 8:11 pm


    Here’s the article Cone is talking about


    April 4, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    • Bird’s dunker might get him going

      Sanchez hut the ball baby steps is good


      April 4, 2017 at 8:38 pm

  10. Holliday will get s log of walks with DoughBoy behind him


    April 4, 2017 at 8:39 pm

    • Finally Cone says it
      Ellsbury batting 5th 🤦‍♂️ smh
      Trying to make him Johnny Damon


      April 4, 2017 at 8:41 pm

  11. Jeez tough room out there,, all i said was it was a fun game with my Home Team having an off day,
    Sue me,, lol i like that Thor kid,, exciting to watch him work like watching a 10 year Veteran.
    Not a hater this year 😜😜😜😜😜


    April 4, 2017 at 8:49 pm

  12. You’re right Sal, Ordorizzi owned the top of the strike zone with that FB. It’s only 91, but nobody caught up to it. The Sanbino might be pressing a bit.
    Capt Crunch pitched a decent game. Got squeezed a bit, but stayed away from damage.
    That Jumbo Diaz is a big dude. His belly hangs over his belt twice as much as Capt Crunch.

    • Sanchez hit the ball hard maybe that helps
      Ellsbury Gardner are still square pegs
      Wonder if Headley moves to 5
      Ellsbury to lead off Hicks a switch hitter 8th Castro 6 Judge 7 Toe 9

      Gregorius is missed
      6 xtra base hits


      April 4, 2017 at 10:36 pm

  13. Call the FBI !
    Someone stole #12 and did away with Hedley Lamar 👽👽👽
    Who is that guy ??


    April 4, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    • Headley has beaten the shift 2 games in a row
      It only took him 3 yrs to figure it out

      Imagine if Sanchez and Bird were hitting
      Sanchez hit two hard balls so baby steps


      April 4, 2017 at 10:16 pm

    April 4, 2017 at 10:12 pm
