That answers my question. Not many people on this forum know anything about Real Baseball but are in love with the Home Runs. I hope the Yankees continue hitting home runs in October too.




The people on this forum know way more about baseball than you do you piece of crud.

First, as of today, they have the second-best record. I'm not whining. Unlike you, who thinks the team's perfect as it is, I'm not afraid to criticize my team. Only dreamland fans like you think their team's the best no matter how the team's playing. Besides the strikeout problem, the bullpen's not reliable. Robertson and Betances are a walking time bomb. Kanley's not pitching well. Green's not the same and Boone doesn't use him as often as Girardi did. The only reliable reliever is Chapman. The only starter you can count on is Severino. The defense is very poor. Nobody on the offense is having a career year so far. Michael Kay said the same thing. Yes, they've been winning. That shows they've played well as a team and have comeback ability. To be honest, they've been playing better than their statistics indicate. Look at the batting statistics. Other than hitting home runs, the numbers are very poor. Hopefully, the team will continue winning despite the team's flaws.




 No one saiid they think the team is perfect as it is, that's something you made up. Everyone on this board knows what the problems are and how they WILL be fixed. It's just that your posts are redundant to the point of ad nauseum with the same crap over and over and over.....

You guys take things out of context. I never said they should stop hitting home runs. They are situations when making contact is more important. Last night was a perfect example. They left too many men on base. The pitchers know that the Yankees are aggressive and make them swing at bad balls. Look at the Astros last year against the Dodgers. Did they strike out often? They put the ball in play when the game was on the line.

You are nothing more than an Astros fan trolling the Yankee board ... why don't you get the hell out of here.

So you guys think the problems will be fixed? Other than getting another starting pitcher and the bullpen getting better, how is the offense getting better? Judge, Stanton and Sanchez cannot be fixed. They swing for the fences every time and don't seem to make any adjustments. Even Didi is getting into bad habits too. He's been pulling the ball too much. Last year he was more of a line drive hitter.

    The problem with real baseball is that it is played by real people. Real people have faults they can fix and others they cannot. They have talents and faults. They all want to make contact when they swing - hit the ball where they want, take pitches out of the zone and all the rest of it. No player ever woke up wishing he were slower, had less range or a worse throwing arm. Nobody wants to leave the park with two gold sombreros. It happens.


    Ever wonder why people still talk about DiMaggio ? Complete players are that rare.

If they didn't make any adjustments they wouldn't be in the majors.  They also have to do what got them there, they are constantly making adjustments but you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

The Yankees are mostly a right-handed hitting lineup. By now every team knows how to beat them by pitching right-handed power pitchers. They're even more beatable when Boone leaves Bird and Didi out of the lineup. Not sure why Tyler wasn't pinch hit for with Bird.



 



Doesn't that apply to every MLB team? The right hand power pitchers have to be good. So yeah, a team with good right handed power pitchers could give a tough time to every other MLB team. SHEESH!

Yes, remember they beat the Astros mostly by beating their bullpen. The still haven't beaten Verlander, Morton or Cole. As evidence from the second game, if you throw right-handed power relievers the Yankees cannot score runs.




The Astros Bullpen had a couple right handed power pitchers who pitched against the Yankees hitters this season. How'd that go for those Astros bullpen pitchers?

You claim to know everything about baseball, yet you have absolutely NO clue about doubleheaders, and why teams usually split them. Yes, the Yankees lost yesterday, in game two of a doubleheader, where the manager was trying to rest several of the regulars, whom, had they played, probably would've helped the Yankees sweep both games, at the cost of wearing them down for further games down the road. Now that you've learned "Doubleheader basics 101", you can go back to crying in your beer and rambling on about how baseball smart you are, when deep down inside, you're just a pathetic crybaby, because your team didn't finish 162-0.
