    MLB 2018: Sho(hei) Me What You Got

    Bro, I've blocked people on Facebook for that. I get where you're coming from.

    So is it safe to say Bird is back? Am I being premature in 2 homers and 8 RBI in two means he's found his stroke?

    I'm talking about the Red Sox continuing the way they're hitting and not falling back to earth. And I'd love to add Hand but I imagine he is a target of the Sox. In fact if the Yankees can't get a top notch starter they might as well add another good lefty in the pen. I'm not acting like the Yankees suck but when they account for 20% of the Orioles wins this season it is fucking frustrating. They have it in them to be just as good or better than 2009 but unless they win the World Series it is meaningless. Don't you find it frustrating that they can go 20-9 against the Sox, Indians, Astros and Mariners but find ways to lose to the O's to the tune of 4-5. They should have won last night and the first game of the doubleheader. I'm not going to apologize for being frustrated when they play to the level of a historically bad team. I appreciate the Starsky and Hutch and South Park references.

    What if their hitters don't start hitting to their average and continue hitting the way they have been? They can add Brad Hand or Zach Britton to their bullpen. That is an issue that is easily fixed and likely will be. I'm glad you're not concerned about Happ, that puts my mind at ease. Why overpay for Happ, when you can promote from within? Get Sheffield on the 40 man and give him a lot and try and package Frazier for a difference maker in the offseason.

    The Yankees hit .205 in the ALCS, the best hitter by far was Mr. Chase Headley. In the Yankee loses they never scored more than one run, in two of their loses they hit homers, one in the top of the 9th by Bird in Game 1, and one by Judge in game 6, where they lost 7-1. And Frazier drove in the tying run in game 2 after stringing hits together off of Verlander only for Chapman to give up the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. And they were shut out in game 7. They didn't win a single game where they didn't homer, also they didn't win at Yankee Stadium, they hardly scored in those three games. You're comfortable with Happ? I hope you're right. because he hasn't exactly been lights out in the last month. Is his history versus the Red Sox enough to make a trade for him? Apparently Cashman finds the asking price too high for Happ according to Jon Heyman.

    But is it easy to hit a homer off of Justin Verlander, or Chris Sale or any off the good pitching you're likely to see? Fat load of good it did in the ALCS last year. Sure they made it further then they had any right going but I'm not sure them swinging for the fences is going to put them over the top. Are the Yankees likely to score an ace at the deadline? I'm inclined to say no. Methinks they're going have to settle for another guy who is going to turn out to be a bust like Gray or a guy like Jaime Garcia. At this point they should get Sheffield on the 40 man and see what he can do.

    Is that a random statistic? Hitting .250 with runners on second is a cause for concern. The Yankees lost a game just last week because they couldn't get a runner over from third base with less than two outs. They couldn't get a fly into the outfield. How many of those 151 homers are solo jobs when they the game is already out of reach for the opposition? The Yankees live or die by the homerun. I'm concerned about having a losing record against last place teams. Oh yeah I'm thrilled about that too. I hate Devers, he always seems to get to us though. I'm still not thrilled with the Yankees starting pitching either. I'm hoping Bumgarner becomes available but they're probably going to have to get a bottom of the rotation guy.

    I am wrong about Betances but I'm still not thrilled about last night. Coming in and hitting the lead off batter and letting a last place team walk off doesn't exactly give me confidence in the guy. Very unlikely? The Yankees are 15th in baseball with runners in scoring position and the Red Sox are sitting at the top. So it's probably not as unlikely as one might think. I want to see Cashman work his black magic and fill that hole along with the others.

    I disagree, he's been shit in high pressure situations. Bitching? The ease of their schedule means absolute shit if they can't beat the Rays and the Orioles. The O's might come close to losing 120 games and they've beaten the Yankees 5 times. And that 106 win season might come down to a wildcard game because they can't beat the shit teams in their own fucking division.

    Dellin Betances is not to be trusted with anything.

    His power numbers are nearly identical to what he had at this point last season.

    They're absurdly likeable, it's thinks it's because they're a young team having fun. The rookies say the right thing.

    We'd have to burn Cashman alive for witchcraft.

    Anybody who suggests trading Sanchez is insane. I mean it's been a lost season for him so far but I wouldn't trade him for anything.
