sorry but you can't be giving torres off when the lineup is already so short.




Boone said yesterday that he is going to be resting one player a day going forward ... that's ridiculous when you have two top players out of the line-up to begin with.




Stanton is nursing an injury and obviously Torres isn't 100%. With Judge and Sanchez out, this team cannot afford to lose more of its top guys. I'd rather the Yanks try to get through today without Torres instead of losing him for a month. 


What concerns me more about this lineup is the love affair with Shane Robinson. Weren't the Yankees trying to groom Tyler Wade to be an all over utility guy? I'd much rather see a young actual prospect like Wade get a chance over a roster filler  like Robinson.




Not sure if Torres has been 100% since his injury. Plus, he (and Andujar) are not used to the longer ML season, so Boone is giving them days off to keep them fresh. Don't want them being gassed in late September and October.


I strongly agree with your Shane Robinson comment. That guy is an automatic out, a punchless 33 year old journeyman. He won't get better playing more. They should play Wade out there, who is young and can improve, or find a better alternative via a trade.

Jeez, that's just great....the 3 best power bats on the team are either on the DL or not playing at 100%. I only hope they're all back and at 100% come October!
