I'd rather has Toe in cleaup than most of what he is putting there, at least he puts the ball in play majority of the time instead of K ing 2-3 times a game and at the most important times.

So you want to put a slap singles hitter in the cleanup spot? Gotcha!

Headley is also garbage...Feel bad for Sonny




Headley's been hitting well for almost two months now.




Sure, but he's not providing the power you need from a first baseman.  Yanks aren't getting enough power from third base or designated hitter either recently.  They needed another bat at the deadline, preferably a lefty bat, but the high average of Headley, and the six game win streak provided the delusion that all was okay.  If you looked more closely at the wins, some of the success was a cosmetic, an illusion.  Even in the wins the Yanks were getting 5 runs on like 5 hits, or 7 runs on just 7 hits. The signs were there.


Sure, pitching wins in the playoffs.  And I love the Yankees' relief pitchers and their starters.  But you need a consistent offense to win in the regular season, and I'm not sure their offense is deep enough, balanced enough, or consistent enough.  The Red Sox additions of Devers and Nunez may help them more in the long run than Sonny Gray will.  I just hope the Yanks have enough offense to hold on to a playoff spot.  Because the Rays, once Kiermaier is back, might have a more consistent offense.

Where is the hitting coach? Sanchez Judge and Holliday are lacking discipline at the plate.



And two of those guys were out of the lineup tonight, and the result was 1 run on 3 hits with the only run coming from a guy who chased two sliders way out of the zone with a man on 3rd and 1 out in the 4th.

agree that a left-handed bat could have been useful but going into the break, but we were one of the best offenses in baseball (still are). the problem was pitching. during that 8-19 stretch, the bullpen alone - not the offense - cost us 12 games. if we had won even half of those, we'd be sitting pretty now. so cash fixed the pitching. he kicked the tires on a couple lefty hitting 1B and came up empty. he wasn't gonna make a rash move based on a 2-week slump and some injuries. hopefully we get hicks & castro back soon and judge & holliday start hitting.

Look no further than injuries, total team slump and you have the problems as to why we are losing... Pitching isn't the problem, bats cold and key players on the DL.. Until we get everyone back in the lineup, it's going to be a rough ride..

btw, sanchez has been here just over a year. people are complaining but over that year, he's hitting .281 37 HR 94 RBI .919 OPS. and yes there's been a to be expected drop-off from last year but who wouldn't want that type of production out of a catcher.

Seriously.... just look who's doing the complaining. They lose a couple games and it's the same old same old.


I wish canoera was here trolling.... he had a knack for bringing on a winning streak.

 Oh, I'm convinced he's here under more than one new name. Hard to mask his ignorance.
