The Yanks lost a 2-0 Grapefruit League game to  the world champs at home in Tampa..There was no  TV, Houston  radio only, and Lance  McCullers Jr. the curve ball whisperer apparently completely stymied the Bomber offense for 4.1 innings.

Miggy Andujar picked up  the only hit off the tough righty, a lead off single in the 5th inning.

Hicks walked in the 2nd, Stanton  reached on an error in the 4th, Walker was HBP, also in the 4th inning, das it vs McCullers

4.1 innings, 1 hit, no  runs, 5 K’s

Jordan Montgomery was pretty good, 4 innings, 3 hits, unfortunately both  were solo Taters, he didn’t walk  anybody and punched out 4

The Bombers offense was asleep at  the wheel, Cowboy Ty Austin picked up the Bombers 2nd and last hit of the night a single in the 7th off  Armenteros

Things to know about Thursday’s game
1) Jordan Montgomery allowed two earned runs on three hits, including two homers over four innings. He also struck out four in his outing.

2) Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez were held hitless throughout the game. The Yankees only managed two hits on the night.

3) David Robertson allowed just one hit while striking out three in two innings of work. Chad Green also didn’t allow a run in 1.2 innings, as he struck out four.

Gray, and Partly Cloudy

with one comment

The Yanks pummeled the Pirates 9-5 in front of 10 thousand and change at the George in Tampa…

The Bronx Booners seemed to have an opening day line-up on the field yesterday, the Gardfather leading off, the murderous row of Judge, Stanton, and El SanBino, in the 2-3-4 spot, followed by Gregorius, Hicks, Bird, Drury, Wade.

Wade has looked better at  the plate this Spring, up  a few notches from his looking overmatched  while interning for the varsity in 2017

( 2017,  63 PA’s, 9 for 58 with, 4 doubles,  5 BB’s, 19 K’s )

Neil Walker is getting a late start, so Wade could sneak into  the Toronto game as the starting 2nd basema when the games start  for real..

Wade has outperformed any of the non roster invitee’s playing the keystone corner, Torreyes has been the best utility player hands down, add  Drury and Walker and all 4 are  multiple position players, capable of covering every infield spot, plus create depth as a 5th out fielder

The closer we get to opening day, the worse Jacoby Ellsbury’s spot on the roster looks, it means one of Torreyes or Wade have to  go.. Only #HalCare can  solve this problem once Ellsbury is healthy..The gm Ninjah has nowhere to  stash him and the DL can’t go on forever, so he’s roster bound..

Hit and Run

Gardner worked 2 BB’s, and scored 2 runs,

Judge hung up  a string of two’s, 2 hits, 2 runs, 2 RBI’s, 2 BB’s, he knocked the tampering drama off the back page with a productive day

Stanton went hitless, was HBP and scored a run

El SanBino wrecked the game single handedly with a 3 run Tater and a 2 run double, the 5 RBI day made the murderous row optics even  clearer

Ty Austin picked up  the only other hit for the Yanks blasting his 4th HR of the Spring..

Tyler Wade made some great plays on defense, he also worked 2 walks, one off lefty Felipe  Rivero, the Pirates closer weapon

Not Very Sonny

Sonny Gray had a few good starts this Spring, yesterday  wasn’t one of them.. Gray picked up  where he left off in 2017, a pitcher with stuff, and peer reverence, but once again  no rhythm or pace to his game, especially when he can’t throw strikes on the edges

In three innings, Gray allowed three runs, two of them earned, and two hits with four strikeouts, three walks and a homer.

“He’s so talented and can do so many things with the ball,” Boone said. “He’s just got to trust the zone a little more. Sometimes he nibbles and loses the zone.”

Sonny Gray  gets nothing but compliments, we hope some of them  start to ring true, because so  far, Six Inning Sonny hasn’t lived up  to  the hype..

Warren 0.2 inning, Kahnle 1.1 innings, Shreve 1.2 innings, Heller 1.1 innings,  all tossed scoreless frames

Betances 1 inning,  2 hits, 2 runs, 1 HR, he also  struck out the side, so where his elevator stops could very well be another guessing game, but when he’s on, he’s pretty good..

No Chance

with 10 comments

The Yanks lost a  7-4 Grapefruit contest to  the Orioles in front of 8,700 at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, FLa..

For bookkeeping purposes  the Bombers are 11-7-1, the dog days of Spring have produced a 1-5-1 record over the last 7… While the guaranteed regulars are just getting some reps in, there are still players trying to make an impression

Yesterday Chance Adams was given  an opportunity to join the circle of trust as a depth starter, despite not  being on the 40 man roster… A tough task with roster spots at a premium

The Buck O’s with their 4 best  hitters in the line up tee’d off on Adams, 1.2 innings, 7 hits,  5 runs, 2 HR’s, 1 K… It’s safe to  say No Chance has left some doubt in his ability to help the varsity if it’s results you’re looking for, in 3 outings he’s compiled a 11.57 ERA

Chance Adams

We’ll  execute the prevailing wisdom and Forget the numbers, but Adams’ command is still  an issue… He has decent late life on his fast ball, but too many hittable 90 MPH clothes line heaters usually working from behind in the count continue to  haunt him as the competition stiffens

Jim Palmer most recently said it best, Adams will find out those pitches won’t work vs MLB hitters…

Adams the converted college closer has been a great AAA starter, but that hasn’t translated to Spring Training results.. Glass half full, maybe Adams takes longer to get his arm  speed up, so like Gleyber Torres, his AAA performances will be closely monitored

At the moment there is no  reason to  add Sheffield or Adams to  the 40 man roster, so German, and Cessa remain the 6th  and 7th  starters…

Beat  writer Mike Mazzeo, Daily News, reminds us the bench predicament

 Aaron Boone left open the possibility that the Yankees could either carry two utility players or an extra pitcher going into the season. Hard-nosed Ronald Torreyes could potentially be the odd-man out if the Bombers elect to take keep someone like Domingo German, Luis Cessa or Wade LeBlanc.

The square peg in a round hole here is Ellsbury,

Romine, Torreyes, Wade, Ellsbury, Frazier, 5 players, 3 spots with 13 pitchers on board…I can’t imagine Torreyes being sent down, and Wade gives the Yanks depth at 3 positions, possibly 4 if you throw in 3rd base, Romine is a lock at back-up  catcher..

The signing of Neil Walker crowds the situation, and the Yankees are extremely high on Tyler Wade, who has been capable of playing all over the diamond. Austin Romine is a lock of the bench, as is Jacoby Ellsbury if he’s healthy by Opening Day. Ellsbury (oblique) tracked pitches in a sim game and hit in the batting cage, so he’s getting closer.

Not what  we wanted to hear…

Cody Carroll also  wasn’t impressive, tossing 1 inning, 3 hits, 1 Run.. Carroll gave up  a soft knock but induced the last out relieving Adams to  end the 2nd. He was greeted with  a double and later gave up  an RBI single before being replaced with  2 outs in the 3rd inning…

Hit and Runs

Bird had a single, Drury had a double across traffic, Romine poked an RBI single, Torreyes went 0-4 with a ground out RBI, Kratz blasted a HR

Judge 0-4 with  2 K’s

Wade 0-1 a BB and a K, he was HBP so he’s probably sporting a Spaulding insignia on his calf to  go  with the rolled over wrist…

Soup’s Good, Gleyber is Gone

with 9 comments

The Yanks and Tigers played to  an exhilarating 2-2 tie yesterday in front of 10 thousand poor bastards that  actually paid to  see this scrimmage at the George in Tampa

The Bombers will play 14 more  ST games in the next 13 days, take 2 days off and start  the regular season in Toronto  on Thursday March  28th.. If we’re keeping score the Yanks are 11-6-1 in Spring Training games

What  we take from yesterday’s game is a good tune-up  for SoupBone Sabathia

4 innings, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HR..

Apparently Sabathia has embraced his new self, a now sober, crafty lefty who no longer relies on pills, booze a 95 MPH fast ball  and a bowling ball slider to get batters out.. Sabathia is all  about pitch sequence, changing speeds, change-ups, sliders, cutters, fast balls in the low 90’s

After I got him out with a changeup the first time, I just tried to figure out how to get him out the next time,” Sabathia said. “You can’t let him see the same pitches the next time.”

It’s a puzzle Sabathia didn’t have to worry about in his younger years.

“I didn’t give a [bleep] about sequence then,” Sabathia said with a laugh, referring to when he had dominant stuff. “You were gonna get what you were gonna get: fastball and slider.”

There was speculation Sabathia would start  the home opener on April 2nd vs  the Rays, which means skipping the first  four games  on the turf in Toronto, but that might not be the case

He expects to make two more starts this spring and insisted he wouldn’t have a problem pitching in Toronto, where he suffered the setback to his knee in August — and where the Yankees play the first four games of the season.

“There’s no turf on the mound,” said Sabathia, adding it was simply a coincidence his knee got worse there.

Boone-Rothschild could be lining Sabathia up  for the Boston  series, 10 games / 12 days into  the Season?

Last yr CC owned the Angry Cousins

4-0, 1.04 ERA,  .167/.257/.222/.480

DD Gregorius smashed a HR, the Team only managed 4 hits on the day, the Gregorius Tater that  tied the score in the 8th inning, and singles from Hicks, Lind, and Gleyber Torres

Warren, Chapman, Robertson, and Green all pitched 1 scoreless inning… The Yanks entered the 9th inning up  2-1, but per usual Giovanny Gallegos spit the bit giving  up  2 hits and the tying run

The biggest news of the day came down after the scrimmage as Gleyber Torres and  Kyle Higashioka were sent packing to  the SWB camp

Torres wasn’t expected to make the team out of ST, for a myriad of reasons we’ve been over ad-nauseaum, it was a bit of a shock he was cut so  soon, but then  again he left after  raising his  4 for 25 BA to .160  with  a knock and a BB..

“It’s not easy, nine months of no games and [to] come back perfect. I’m human,” Torres said. “I’ll stay focused and go wherever they tell me, do my job and wait for another opportunity.”

Boone gave Gleyber a pat on the head, and the keys to Frankie Cervelli’s 1985 Oldsmobile. The always mellow / positive skipper expects him to regain his super prospect status with more reps at Triple A

“For me, it’s Gleyber just playing and getting the reps, and he’ll be fine,” manager Aaron Boone said. “He’s really good. I thought his at-bats were a little bit better today, the walk there, smokes a ball for a base hit. All spring, he’s hit some balls hard that he hasn’t gotten any love for. He just needs now to continue to play and get the reps. It won’t be too long when it clicks.”

Torres will need 16 more days in the minors, granting the Bombers 7 yr’s of team control instead of 6, which  takes him to the 2024 /25 season before he can  declare free agency..

The Neil Walker era will supposedly start on Friday

Street Walker No More

with 7 comments

You Ain’t No Street Walker no more

©Taj Mahal

Well the NY Ninjah GM can finally take down Neil Walker’s photo from the  inescapable MIT analytics War Room wall, where the algorithms beat  to  their own drum.. The long hot pursuit is over, the Ninjah nabbed his man loitering around the unemployment line, a  1 yr, $4M base salary, escalating to  a potential $4.5M with incentives..

Cashman  reminds me of my mother, there was never a bargain she could resist either, whether she needed it or not…

Cashman described the 32-year-old Walker, one of the game’s more reliable second basemen for eight years running, as someone who “at least in the short-term is expected to come off the bench while he competes for an everyday job.”

“If he takes something from somebody over time, so be it, but he’s getting a late start given the fact that we’re probably about two weeks away from leaving Florida,” Cashman said. “We’re excited to have him. It certainly wasn’t part of our game plan at first, but it was something we couldn’t ignore when the opportunity still existed. I’m happy he picked us.”

There was plenty of speculation that Cashman wouldn’t take his first 25 man roster across the border with  two  rookies at key spots in the infield.. Yesterday he paid dividends to the conspiracy theorist, finishing off a job that started with the Brandon Drury trade, culminating with Neil Walker signing as a free agent

A Cold Take: The numbers won’t add up  for Miggy Andujar, unless he goes on a 2 week bomber mission against varsity starters who  are  beginning to  ramp it up, at that point #HalCare could order him on the team… “Let’s Be Honest” #HalCare called the Aaron Judge shot last year / winter, he wanted a home grown commodity in right field… Cashman made him fake fight Hicks for the gig, but they  weren’t selling tickets in the Bronx with Judge in Scranton…

Andujar has outplayed Drury, the supposition that Miggy’s defense isn’t adequate enough for the show hasn’t revealed signs of legitimacy,   that water cooler narrative is ill-informed ear wash..

As for Gleyber Torres, he hasn’t performed offensively this spring, so a combination of service time benefits for the front office, baseball rust thanks to Cashman disallowing him access to Winter Ball, the fact he has only  81 AB’s at AAA, and his slow start swinging  the lumber will make the decision to  send him  to Scranton a soft landing for the GM..

FWIW Torres at AAA, .309/.406/.457/.863, that’s pretty awesome

The Big Picture is now our focus, the Yanks have enormous depth, despite hello American Pie, Drury and Walker, goodbye El núcleo, Andujar and Torres, which isn’t what  we were looking for coming out of the gate

At least we thought Tyler Wade had a shot to play  2nd base, but now even his spot is in jeopardy?

That  said, with Ellsbury a long shot to make the opening bell, Wade looks to have stitched together a 25 man  roster spot, with Torreyes and Romine…?

The 4th bench spot will be the rotating shuttle position, and the Yanks have shown plenty of quality depth as candidates .. German, Cessa,  Austin, Boom Box McKinney, Andujar, Torres, Frazier, Heller, Cody Carroll….

Domingo Acevedo is on the 40 man but he is not active, a potential DL,? Possibly Cody Carroll has opened enough  eyes to  grab a ride on the shuttle, he along with Chance Adams and Justus Sheffield aren’t on the 40  man

You’d have to  think 38 through 40 on that  roster would be Jonathan Loaisiga, Johnathan Holder, and Giovanny Gallegos, if the NinJah GM needs  more 40 man roster spots, those are probably the next  to go?

As for the Grapefruit League the Yanks have lost  4 of their last 5, last night a 2-1 defeat vs the Twins..

Tanaka went through the motions for 4 innings, 4 hits, 2 runs, a HR, 6 K’s

Betances and Shreve combined for a clean inning, D-Bet 2 K’s

German tossed 3 innings, 1 hit, 3 K’s

Tom Virgil Kahnle 1 inning 1 hit

Tyler Austin blasted a Tater for the only Bombers run

Wade and Torreyes had two hits, both had a double

Romine, Drury,  and Bird, had a knock apiece

Bombers Sleep With the Fish

with 13 comments

The Yanks lost their 5th Spring Training game yesterday 7-5 to  the #2 Captain’s Marlins on the road in Jupiter Fla.. The Paul Dean Stadium where this event took place,  per the internet, can  accommodate 6,800 loyal patrons..

Yesterday MLB, and we know they’re on the up and up, chronicled 7,648 knuckleheads attending..  Roger Dean despite breaking the law had a very good day, once again proving that  crime does pay……

There was no TV, only Ma and Pa Pinstripe, so  we per usual salute the MLB Gameday app for providing a translation to  the doddering tempo the happy couple always serve up..

For the most part the Bombers lost because Jordon Montgomery, Brady Lail, and Wade “Frenchy” LeBlanc weren’t that good..

Lail is a 24 yr old 18th  round pick out of Utah, and Frenchy is just filler until Boone-Cashman slice more fat off the bone, so Miami beating up on them was more or less elevator music, annoying but harmless..

Your cat missing the litter box was Montgomery’s inability to execute his pitches, which could become alarming if he strings a few more clunkers together.. Montgomery has a lot of moving parts, and per Ma, his BFF running partner is Sonny Gray, another guy needing precision with the paint brush, or the game can turn into abstract art rather quickly


“I’m just kind of in between tempos right now, working fast and working slow,” Montgomery said Sunday, after taking the loss in the Yankees’ 7-5 defeat to Derek Jeter’s Marlins at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium. “… [I’ll] watch some tape from my first outing and get back to work.”

Montgomery definitely  stashed the box score with crooked numbers

2.1 innings, 5 hits, 4 runs, 2 BB’s, 3 K’s..

That lack of tempo, Boone asserted, spoke to Montgomery’s inability to throw his secondary pitches effectively. 

“That ability, 1-0, 2-1, whatever it is, to be able to throw his changeup, to be able to flip a breaking ball in there for a strike, that’s the tempo thing he’s talking about,” Boone said. “The swing-and-miss stuff is still there when he’s ahead, but being able to get back on count with the secondary [pitches] is where he needs to improve.”


The Yanks were down 5-0 until they scored 2 runs in the 4th inning on Singles by Bird and Sanchez, a passed ball, a ground out, and a sac fly by Andujar made it 5-2

At 7-2 in the 6th Sanchez reached on an error and Gregorius followed with a two  run Bomb off a hung breaking pitch from top prospect, 22 yr old Sandy Alcantara….7-4

Miggy Andujar followed with a very loud triple that Pa had going out, but it hit the top of the wall instead… Per the broadcast Andujar smoked the ball every time up, and played a flawless third base… Miggy is without a doubt outplaying Drury, by a lot, but it’s not always what, but who you know when waiting for that  first break..

The Judge launched a 3-1 pitch to  the cocktail lounge located on the patio of the next building to make it 7-5, it was his first Tater of the Spring.. Looking at the game day pitch location, it was over the plate  down leaking toward the outer half, but it didn’t leak enough…

There is video of the HR’s

Braves Chop Yanks 3-1

with 10 comments

The Yanks dropped their irrelevant Grapefruit League record to 10-4 with a 3-1 loss to  the Braves in Orlando… There was no TV, I caught some of Ma and Pa Pinstripe on the radio (mlb app only) but when Pa called Brandon Drury Rob Drury, it was time to exit velocity the Sterling extravaganza

From the reports, Sonny Gray looked good, which is a soft breeze to our ears…Sonny cost the Yanks a lot in prospect commodity, of course two of the players were injured, and Mateo was the black  sheep in Ninjah Cashman’s stable, but they all came with a prospect pedigree ribbon..

The media went ga ga over the deal, to  them it was like Billy Beane and  NY Ninjah GM ripped a dollar bill in half, and if those 3 prospects pan out, Beane gets to  scotch  tape the other half of George Washington together..

I never understood why George, the Father of our Country was only worth a buck, there has to be some value to being first?

 Sonny is a supposed Ace, John Smoltz loves him, Mikey 2 Chins wants to  start shopping for curtains with him, so  we’re good with Six Inning Sonny too….

Sonny vs the Braves went 3.2 innings, 1 hit, 2 BB’s, 3 K’s, that sounds pretty good

The SanBino  hit a HR off Arodys Vizcaíno, who  per Ma Pinstripe is the Braves closer, so  there was joy in Mudville, which is a good name for Sterling’s calls, they’re usually as clear as mud..

El SanBino had 2 of the 3 hits on the night for the Bronx Booners, both were Manny Ramirez like in “exit velocity” so  there’s more good news, as we know, the DonB’s favorite player has to  fly coach, while the Slambino’s, Judge, the GianCarlo, and their entourage hog the first  class seats

Hicks  picked up  the other hit, a single…

It’s a good thing Spring Training doesn’t mean anything because Greg Bird seems to  be flying with  a broken wing.. Bird is 2 for 28, with a 28% OB, he’s had 26 PA’s, 5 BB’s, 10 K’s which is a fat 38% K Rate

Bryan Hoch‏Verified account @BryanHoch 
High fastball. Blew it by him. Believe it was 93.

Miggy Andujar, per the media vibe has lost some ground on his battle for 3rd base, so NinJah Cashman is secretly high  five’ng himself after handing over two prospect commodities for Brandon Drury 

Per Bryan Hoch, Andujar hit some peas, despite an 0-4 box score.. Miggy is 8 for 30, 6 of the 8 hits are extra base knocks, 4 HR’s and 2 doubles… Andujar has to hit his way off the island, so he’s hasn’t walked in any of the 30 PA’s, he’s been punched out 7 times, good for a 23% K rate

He’ll be seeing stiffer competition as we get closer to opening day, which is 20 days from  today in Toronto….

Bryan Hoch‏Verified account @BryanHoch
Miguel Andujar continues to smash ropes this spring. Liner to second base is turned into a double play, but he hit it on the button.

Tom Virgil Kahnle pitched 0.2 innings, he relieved Sonny with a man on base and got a punch out that  excited Hoch

Straight gas from Tommy Kahnle, who fires 96 mph past Ryan Schimpf swinging to end the 4th.

Hoch got writers cramp during Kahnle’s 2nd inning, a lead off walk, followed by an RBI double, then and line drive out before jumping into the card game on the bus

The other player of note was Chicken Shreve, who pitched a clean inning… Judging by the way he’s performed, him being out of options might be irrelevant..

3 games, 4 innings, 2 hits, no  runs, 4 K’s, he’s the only lefty in camp that hasn’t kicked over the milk bucket…

Ninjah GM will have to use his 25th man as the shuttle option, which  complicates the roster’s bench / bull pen construction..

Gleyber Torres is only a player of concern if you’re wondering why he’s pulling a 2016 Gary Sanchez Spring Training crash?  El SanBino went 2 for 22 in Spring, be he later in the season jump started the new Core with a legendary 2nd half call up..

Torres is 3 for 20

“He is trying to get four hits in one at-bat, he just has to calm down,’’ Thames said of Torres, competing for the starting second base job, which is the only real position open on the team. “I told him, ‘Gleyber you can hit, don’t try to do too much. We know what you can do.’ He hasn’t played since June and he is a 21-year-old kid, so he is antsy.’’

Just  wondering if the NinJah GM  would have allowed him to play  some winter ball, 20 games, similar to Andujar, would Torres have shaken off some of the rust before Spring Training?

It’s completely obvious the GM wanted no  part in bringing  Torres North at the ripe age of 21 and let him start  to take his lumps from day one…That  would make Torres a FA at 26 yr’s old, and if he pans out to  the hype, that could mean a cash windfall… Of course that’s providing free agency is still reaping benefits for 26 yr old stars ( see Machado)

Jordan Montgomery  was pretty much handed the #5 starter slot by Aaron Boone

“I viewed it as he was a front-runner for that spot,’’ Boone said of Montgomery, who will start Sunday against the Marlins. “We are really excited, not only about the year he put together last year but where we think he will continue to go. When I look at him I look at him as one of our starters.’’

Montgomery went 9-7 with a 3.88 ERA in 29 starts last year, when he worked 155 ¹/₃ innings.

“We will move Greenie to the pen role and start preparing him that way,’’ Boone said of the right-hander, who developed into a big piece of the Yankees’ pen last year when he went 5-0 with a 1.83 ERA in 40 games (one start) and struck out 103 in 69 innings. “We will start to work him in that role where obviously he is capable of multiple innings.’’

That’s good news, although no other pitcher in camp proved they could escape 3 innings, no less beat out Montgomery.. Cessa is showing signs of becoming a 2 inning hero out of the pen, a Green Lite if you will.. Chance Adams isn’t on the 40 man and he too has to prove even one time around a MLB line-up is doable?

Boone raved about Justus Sheffield, and we agree he’s got tremendous upside, but at  the moment he’s a 1 inning Stud… His 2nd inning adventures have resembled a voyage on the SS Minnow which unfortunately lands him on Gilligan’s Island before closing down the inning…

“I don’t want him to rush the process. He’s going to be a good one,’’ Boone said. Also reassigned were right-handers Dillon Tate, Cale Coshow and Raynel Espinal, lefty Trevor Lane and catcher Chace Numata.

This is what  they have in camp pitching wise as of Thursday

Pitchers (27)
Right-handers (22)

Albert Abreu; Domingo Acevedo; Chance Adams; Dellin Betances; Cody Carroll; Luis Cessa; J.P. Feyereisen; Giovanny Gallegos; Domingo German; Sonny Gray; Chad Green; David Hale; Ben Heller; Jonathan Holder; Tommy Kahnle; Brian Keller; Brady Lail; Jonathan Loaisiga; David Robertson; Luis Severino; Masahiro Tanaka; Adam Warren.

Left-handers (5)

Aroldis Chapman; Wade LeBlanc; Jordan Montgomery; CC Sabathia; Chasen Shreve.

Abreu, Loaisiga, along with  Thairo Estrada were cut on Friday, the unofficial  count is 53 players still in camp
