Yanks Boston

with 5 comments

After an  excruciating 3-2 loss on Sunday which  gave the Yanks a 3-4 road trip  through Baltimore and Toronto the day  off hopefully was well  timed..

The Bronx will get  morning and afternoon showers but it looks like no rain, just overcast for tonight’s opening of the Boston 3 game series

Tanaka could have used the extra day, but he’ll have to  gut it out on 5 days rest after being mugged for 9 hits and 7 runs in Baltimore on May 31st..

Rothschild said in the media Tanaka needs to  stop  thinking and execute, which tells us he’s trying to be too  fine… That sends up  a red flag that he’s choking on the  opt out.. If he’s not hurt, then what  else can it be?

“I think he needs to just worry about one thing and that is the pitch at hand,” pitching coach Larry Rothschild said of Tanaka’s approach against the Red Sox. “Take the focus off all the other stuff and just make pitches.’’

Kernan doesn’t hammer the nail’s head in his article, but he pre-drills the pilot hole through a tough surface, Tanaka’s mind set.

Long story short, Kernan and Rothschild think  Tanaka is trying too get too  cute, using too much of his arsenal, until he commands none of it by overthinking….Sounds like a Dr. Melfi visit should be next..

Nibbles is trying to  be too  cute because he wants to be awesome, so far the results haven’t panned out, nobody is handing him $160M for this garbage

Tanaka is in the midst of the worst pitching slump of his life. Over his last four starts, he is 0-4 with an 11.21 ERA — and that includes 7 ¹/₃ innings of one-run ball when he struck out 13 Athletics. Opposing hitters are batting .366 against him over that span with a 1.184 OPS. On balls put in play, they are batting .440.

Tanaka has allowed more earned runs this season (43) than any other pitcher in baseball.

Shut down Boston  tonight Nibby and they’ll have to build a section near the Judge’s Chambers for all  the scouts that  come to  check  you out, a contest for what  to  call it should be interesting..

Ba Ba Ba Bird Bird Bird

Bird 1 for 3 with a walk and a punch out… He was up 3-0 then 3 pitches that got a lot of the plate punched him out, the last one looking…. Must be some good pitchers in that Fla. league, what are they feeding those kids……….


tampa box

Francesa already destroyed Bird’s career, and yesterday he got closer to Judge and Sanchez then we want him to be saying both players are legit, no Shane Spenca’s or Kevin Maas’s in dos guys

I wish Francesa wouldn’t read anything about the Yanks, you know he’s not watching them enough to make a State of the Union address about them.. For the Pope it’s golf or the NBA, a Series nobody on the planet outside of Cleveland and San Francisco care about..


Mikey 2 Chins was surprised Tyler Austin didn’t come up and Carter cut loose… $3Million reasons why they  haven’t Mikey

The DonB’s Gleyber Watch

Gleyber Torres hit his first HR at AAA last night so  the DonB gets 3 hits closer to giving Headley the Tessio Ride

Torres was batting 3rd, got 3 hits and a walk, check out the easy swing and the 400 plus foot Tater in the link above

the Whole 9

Tale of the Tape

The Yanks high water mark was 21-9, presently at  32 and 22, Miss Ricardi’s math class taught me they’ve gone 11 and 13 since that point… The better  way  to look  at it is they’ve played above  .500 in both April  and May

win loss

  1. Joel Sherman jumping on CyBorg Joe’s non use of Betances vs the Jays 3 best hitters in the 8th….

    Thank You Sherman, anything that knocks this arrogant school boy off his high perch is a solution… You’ll never hear Pope Francy who hogs the mic for 6 hours or the Met Mutts who only talk Mets and Jets say a word about it

    Francesa will blow off anybody who even brings it up in the ten minutes a day he allows baseball chatter

  2. El Pollo disses Tanaka.. Didn’t Martinez say he wouldn’t make it past 2016? now this…Maybe it wakes up Tanaka, and we can credit Martinez for helping Severino and Tanaka, that works..
