Judge For Yourself, Injuries Becoming an Excuse

with 3 comments

How about we Vote to have DiDi Gregorius Not go to  the All Star game… DD, like the rest of these guys can use some time off.. Why jeopardize the 2nd half of this season  for a meaningless exhibition?

It’s bad enough Judge and Sanchez have to work  two days, the HR Derby and the game.. And what manager in his right mind would put Dellin Betances into  any game at  this point in time?

As for Severino, he’s pitching on Saturday, so he’s useless on Tuesday, what’s the point ? It’s not like any of these guys have picked it up  since being voted in, quite the contrary, they’ve regressed

Castro at least won’t play in the game, but he will make the trip

These guys are young and it appears they  want in, so maybe it sparks them in the 2nd half, but at  the moment they’re fiddling around with an Exhibition while the Bronx is Burning..

From David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer

The Yankees lost to the Blue Jays as Dellin Betances came on with the score tied in the eighth inning and promptly walked four of the five batters he faced. Betances made the All-Star team but didn’t deserve the nod, as he’s in a massive mechanical slump. He has now walked 26 batters in 27 1/3 innings and given up nine runs over his past 4 2/3 innings.

The eighth inning is suddenly a big problem for the Yankees, who haven’t won two games in a row since June 12. The Yankees led the division by four games on that date. They’ve gone 6-16 since, and while they still lead the wild-card race, there is now a pack of teams right behind them. Given the mediocre state of their rotation, they need a lockdown bullpen and that hasn’t been the case of late.

The Yanks keep using the injury excuse, Betances, Chapman, Pineda, Severino, Clippard, all of the middle relief,Tanaka before his last 3 outings, none of them are hurt

  1. Yanks actually made a great comeback to take the lead only to blow it with the bullpen again for a change.
    Pinheada just needs to be gone,call Clemenza,get some cannoli’s,leave him in the car. They are not going to re sign him,get rid of him asap,he is just fucking garbage. Judge started it with another homer,Choi hit one into the kennel-next to the Judge’s chambers-Didi drove in 2,suddenly 6-5 Yanks! In the old days,it was over-now not. Green gave up a tying homer to Martin,our former black hole catcher,then things just went to hell when Betances was brought in. It was like a horror movie,Betances just walking everyone until the Jays had the lead. He said he is in between motions,meaning the base stealing has gotten inside his head so he has been altering his normal motion. Call Dr. Joyce Brothers,Billy Connors,Mel Stottlemyre,
    anyone!! This team is built on the back of the bullpen,if they don’t do it,this team is dead. Warren got out of the 8th and then tellingly pitched the 9th instead of Chapman. So another disgusting loss,each one worse than the last,another series lost,especially after winning the first game. Fortunately the Rangers beat the sux so the deficit remains the same. Hopefully the day off helps. They could not beat the horrible Jays who had lost 4 in a row coming to NY,now play the first place Brewers who are presently beating the Cubs 9-1.

    • hey Big D, good intel on the motion thing, I hadn’t heard that, then again when these guys start to tell you why and what for I’ve turned a deaf ear, but that makes sense.. Once he gets people on base… When he visits the Melfi she needs to explain to him when he comes into a clean inning there is nobody on base so no need for practicing the slide step or what ever the fuck he’s trying to do

      That’s why God made the winter, so guys like Betances could practice what’s ailing them.., Yeah we get it he did practice per the Lying Manager, but not hard enough…..

      Party At Levine’s

      thanks for the take D.. hang in there, worst case they trade at the deadline and we start looking at next yr, or maybe Cashman will come up with something he’s got 5,000 prospects in to top 100 maybe he and his crack staff can figure out which ones he can’t keep
