So Apparently Lying Joe said Sanchy had a stiff neck  that’s why Tommy didn’t play him.. So in less then  24 hours the stiff neck  just  disappeared, just like that….smh

Joe Girardi said Gary Sanchez had a stiff neck yesterday, which is why he wasn’t used.

  1. Alternative facts!
    Btw, I’m heading down to DC today, for the start, of a week of Little Feat shows. Will have limited access to Yankee games/news. Will depend upon PTB to keep me in the loop.
    Hey Sal, I wanted Happy Holliday 10 yrs ago! He would’ve been a great Yankee!!

    • hey buddy, safe travels have fun.. Just check in we’ll keep it going… I’ll need to bail late week, over the weekend but back in the saddle Sunday

      I never paid much attention to Holliday but he looks like a ball player DNA running through his veins.. Seems like a very smart young man too

      I’m looking forward to Green out of the pen, as he said at the pre game, he can just let it fly for 1 to 3 innings

      That helps, him not having to game plan 5 / 6 innings, or 3 times thru, simplifies his arsenal, and most hitters he’s only seeing once

      enjoy talk soon

  2. Andriese is a joke taking all that time between pitches, they need to nip that in the bud… Seems like it works, especially once the SanBino got on base and he went to the stretch…I can’t remember anybody that fucked up?

  3. Nibbles Tanaka lost his finish per Larry the Stable Guy and Lying Joe…How the hell do you forget how to throw a pitch when you’ve hammered at that repetition thousands of times?

    Something is not allowing him to create that late movement, the downward tilt and now it looks like a command issue too…

    We need Cone on this telecast… Shag is cool but he’s just reciting numbers from the truck.. I’d slip Flash a few pops, see if that loosens him up, he might go rouge and start telling the truth

  4. Wow Big Hank.. I don’t think Francesa can jinx him, he already mushed when he said he wasn’t gonna make the 25 man roster… We just don’t need him on the bandwagon, and Judgy is a Francesa wet dream.. He might come out of retirement


    May 20, 2017 at 4:38 pm

  5. Nibbles looking better


    May 20, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    • fucking jinxed him


      May 20, 2017 at 4:52 pm

  6. Tanaka has $67M coming, if he opts out, fake news read his market was Lester money, wonder if he’s choking knowing there is a $100M circling the drain pitching this pedestrian


    May 20, 2017 at 4:56 pm

  7. Nibbles hasn’t made my drive down to DC enjoyable. Still in Joisey.
    Something must be wrong with him. This has been going on for too long. And now, it’s Gidrools on parade…

    • Gotta b hurt bondsman but not ruling out choking

  8. Mike Mazzeo @MazzNYDN
    RIP four-day vs. five-day rest splits. Enter Sanchez vs. Romine splits. A New ERA of splits!
    Kenny Ducey @KennyDucey
    Masahiro Tanaka:

    with Gary Sanchez (5 Gms): 12.57 ERA, 2.64 WHIP, 10 HR


    May 20, 2017 at 6:58 pm

  9. man Sanchez takes a beating

    wonder if Psycho Joe who pulled a tremendous psychotic reaction out of his butt would start to bunch up Castro 2nd he has a .385 OBP, Holliday, Judge, Sanchez or Sanchez Judge.. Or something that puts Judge and Sanchez together and moves Sanchez in a more traditional slugger spot?

    That puts a lot of pressure on a pitcher.. Castro at the moment has a better OPS then those 3 but for how much longer.. Sanchez has a .395 OBP so Lying Joe will want to keep him in the 2 hole

  10. Billy Witz‏ @billywitz

    That ball hit Judge in the ribs — bounced off him like popcorn off a battleship.

  11. the Sharp Attack

    Katie Sharp‏ @ktsharp
    Masahiro Tanaka has given up 10 HR and 22 runs in his last 14 IP.

    1st Batter of Game vs Masahiro Tanaka This Season:

    5-for-9, 2 HR, double

    Rays are 70-67 vs Yankees since 2010. They’re the only AL team with winning record vs Yankees in that span.

  12. The Trop has always been a house of horrors for the Yanks. I can also remember many a gut wrenching loss in KC back in the day. Circa those teams in the late ’70’s


    May 20, 2017 at 7:53 pm

  13. The best part of the game was PsychoJoe channeling Billy Martin burying the plate after he got ejected.
    Just another disgusting performance at the Trop. Terrible pitching,especially by Tanaka-the 2 gidrools that followed were not much help. But the defense behind them has really been sloppy the last few games,all losses. The Post had a few articles on how PJoe is ruining the bullpen by going to them so often,but then he has no choice since all the starters have not given length,in fact are near the bottom of the league.
    Everyone is at a loss to figure out Tanaka,who was completely unhittable in the spring,now not. Years ago he would have been sent down to Tampa to work with Billy Connors-lol He should go on the 10 day dl and get his mechanics right,he has been throwing batting practice. Offense scored 5 runs which should be enough to win but not with this pitching staff. Thankfully Sunday is the last game and they will come home.

    • hey fellas yes rough night, Rays were a bit more ready to play then our starters.. We have a remedy for the pen but they won’t listen

      first why are any gidrools on a #2 farm system with a $200M payroll 25 man roster?

      Layne and Gallegos gone Mitchell and Cessa up.. When Chapman gets back Green, Mitchell, Warren, Shreve, Clippard Betances Chapman.. Only Shreve is a short man Betances and Chapman do what they do and you have 3 pitchers who could go long or short get out Left or Right coming outnof the pen

      as for Tanaka Yanks aren’t replacing him if he’s toast they’re toast.. Thomson pulling Severino was BS

      Good stuff boys

  14. After Psycho covered the plate with a cubic yard of dirt, it was the first time I ever saw an umpire refuse to clean it off and then let the game continue. Now, disappointuing game aside, that was funny. Sanchez then cleans it off about 5 minutes later.
    So Psycho iis quoted today that he was pissed off the umpire did that. Leslie Nielsen had one of those hand held vacs when he umped. How about Manfred buying one for Christmas for every umpire?
    Tanaka has to stop recreating his own version of Pearl Harbor.
    Every time they show a camera shot of that ceiling at the Trop, I get vertigo.
