Yanks Rays

with 20 comments

The Yanks wake up  this morning after a 9-5 win and sweep over the Cincinnati Dead Legs, 1 game behind Boston in the Standings, but 1 game ahead of them in the loss column

The Rays come to  town  for 4 games are 2.5 games behind the Bombers, so a Series win for the Yanks (3 wins)s could separate them from  the Rays..

The Red Sox are back  home where they  rule, but they have to  face the  red hot Royals over the weekend then Cleveland ..

The Bombers face the Rays for 4 and the Tigers for three, before heading to Cleveland and Toronto..

Yanks at home need to  win 5 of the 7  games to make a statement, especially if they  wipe out some great prospects ( Mateo, Florial, Acevedo) for the middle of the rotation Sonny Gray

Mateo last night a Grand Salami

SS Jorge Mateo: 1-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 BB — four homers in 26 games with Trenton after hitting four homers in 69 games with Tampa … eight homers overall ties his career high set last year

That  package should not leave Cashman’s office for anything less then  Justin Verlander or the already gone Jose Quintana.. Cashman  should be fired on the spot if those three prospects head to Oakland for Sonny Gray.. Verlander of course has way  too much money on his remaining contract so  he’s out

Justin Time?

Instead of being held up  for a Fake Aces like Yu Darvish  and Sonny Gray, the Yanks could add a powerful LH reliever Justin Wilson for a lot less prospect  cost.. In the process they  completely wipe out Boston who  already  missed out on Pat Neshek who  went to Colorado

Last night  SWB RHP Chance Adams:

7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 WP, 4/4 GB/FB — 64 of 102 pitches were strikes (63%) … vintage Chance Adams tonight …

Lets get real, most of these fake Aces can’t get out of the 7th inning, and more often then not is 6 and split, do  the Yanks need to throw good money  at  bad product because its a minimal upgrade?

Go get Wilson now,  you’d have a complete NGBP… Yanks could  even carry Cessa as a long man, despite him allowing the Reds to hang a crooked number in the 9th on a 3 run Yankee stadium Tater… Once Larry the Stable Guy  went to  the mound and showed him his bus ticket to Pennsylvania, he straightened out

With Wilson in the mix Yanks would have Two closers, Two set up men, Two hybrid relievers, the Big Lefty they need, and Cessa as the long man

Carry an 8 man pen until September, bring up Chance Adams and lets go…

Say No  to Fake Aces

  1. Last night i saw an American Legion League game in Sal’s hometown.
    What a great summer night of small town baseball.
    I had my 80 year old friend honored as the Veteran of The Day 🇺🇸
    Great Baseball ,, great crowd.
    Sal – you coulda been a Contender lol

    • donny I used to hit em where they were back in that ball park.. They didn’t have fences back then so you needed one to roll with some spin to get a HR.. Teams played a no HR defense back then lol… glad you had a good time they sure built a nice complex after we left…

  2. Sal, I’ve made all the arrangements. If CashMan goes ahead, & makes this afromentioned deal, he will sleep with the fishes. He & Luca Brasi can share a seafood tower all to themselves.
    The more I thought about this last night, after consulting with you, the more pissed off I became.
    What an overpayment! And for what?
    The guy had 1 good year, then got hurt, & has had fake runs of the excellence, followed by mediocrity.

    No worries. I gave this to Clemenza’s people. Professionals. They know how to send the right message to Hal & Co.

    • thank you donMoscone, I did notice less talk of Gray to NY since our discussion, they’ve even added Seattle into the mix, so you’re work has been making a difference..

      There is talk of bringing Alonso in to play first base, but we have the Toddfather and Headley batting vs RHP’s… I was gonna ask you to leave the Gray, take the Alonso but that might be un-necesary, but stay close to the phones…grazi

  3. 2 Chins all in for Gray including Mateo and Florial

  4. Gray career vs Boston ERA 5.16 vs Baltimore 5.57……..

  5. I’m thinking our friends in the Molinari Family out west might’ve reached out to them & discussed the ramifications of such a deal.
    I’m sure they realize they have a lovely family & it would be unfortunate if some tragedy should befall them.

    As you mentioned earlier, let’s go get Wilson. Another flame throwing lefty to compliment what we have. Our starters don’t go often to the 7th, hell, they mostly go 5 or 6 & fly. So why not get more back up for our NGBP???
    Me? I wanna keep the kids for the most part, unless it REALLY makes sense not just for today, but for tomorrow as well.

  7. Good news not great but good Dodgers now a dark horse fav for Gray, Yanks won’t offer for Gray what they offered for Quintana

    Still who knows what that means… what did they offer for quintana?

  8. Joel Sherman‏Verified account

    Former #Yankees C John Ryan Murphy (piece that got them Aaron Hicks) was dealt from #Twins to #Diamondbacks for LHP prospect Gabriel Moya

  9. Getting ugly early out there
    Mow was mowed down

    Aaron Judge now 7-for-44 with 19 strikeouts since the All-Star break.

    • If Kahnle is a 1 inning pitcher
      Maybe closer is in his future

      He looked the way I thought Green would look

  10. Wade is why you don’t trade Mateo
    Wade is overmatched, Mateo could be the Swiss Army knife they crave

    Maybe Wade needs more seasoning or maybe Wade gets flipped?

  11. A gift run
    Couple of tough ABs by #77 and #99
    Unable to get the runner in from 3rd

    Be amazing to steal this one but something don’t feel right

    Good to see Chapman going off speed


    July 27, 2017 at 10:40 pm

    • Wow Gardzilla stole the win💰


      July 27, 2017 at 11:10 pm

  12. #Gardy
    # walkoff

  13. Just an incredible win!!! Need to show GARDY some respect,no more wet newspaper,18 homers. Great clutch triple to start the 9th,Sanchez got lucky to drive him in. Then the walkoff,knocking out one of Judge’s teeth-lol Brickhouse was wearing black-black is slimming-she looks more zaftig than ever!! Seems the Rays had 100 pitchers on their staff,their moron manager was using them like a spring training game. Rays made 2 trades,including getting Lucas Duda from the Mets. The NY papers seemed to think the Mets would send him to the Yanks. Reminds me of when the Rays had Tino Martinez,Yanks needed someone at 1b for a change,Peter Gammons said “the Rays would send Tino to Iraq before they send him to the Yanks”-lol CC was not a happy camper when he was yanked,but the bullpen did a great job shutting them down after Green allowed a homer. Tyler Wade is not ready for prime time,he needs to go back to Scranton. I thought the game was lost when Archer struck out Toddfather and Wade with the bases loaded,but they came back. Strange move by our beloved,ejected leader pinch hitting for Ellsbury and letting Wade hit-oy!!!

    • hey Big D, great run down

      Yes Gardzilla gets the Rudy Award for sure, and he passed the wet newspaper to Holliday and Judge…..

      zaftig hahaha I have to look that up but i bet it’s funny…,Yeah she slimmed down from the Titanic to the Santa Maria

      I remember the Gammons take but not until you brought it up lol

      Yeah poor Wade such a good kid but shit is moving way to fast for him, he looks like the kid whole stole the teachers wallet and it’s just a matter of time before they catch him

      The only guy in the world who could make Girardi look smart as a manager is Robbie Thomson, if I’m not mistaken he was at the Helm when all that Ping debacle went down… He was saving Happy for a bigger spot lol


      July 28, 2017 at 5:19 am

  14. The literal meaning of Zaftig is JUICY !!
    But Sal, it means chesty, busty, bosomy, STACKED !!!!!!!
