Hey Clipper, who is your all time favorite Yankees catcher you have seem outside of Yogi.....does E.Howard or Munson comes to mind?





I grew up in the 1950's with Yogi and later Howard in the 1960's. I really liked Munson because he was old school behind the plate, like Yankees HOF Bill Dickey, who taught him as a rookie.

Speaking of Yankees history, do you recall this pitcher on the mound...talk about a slow delivery....Laughing

I never denied that Cano was a productive player but I never enjoyed watching him as a player. If Sanchez puts up the 30 homers with a 280 batting average and still shows lazy tendencies I'll feel about him as I did with Cano. If they bring on Machado and he pulls the same nonsense and I stop enjoying watching guys like him and Sanchez play, I just won't follow them the way I do now. 


With the whole sabermetrics, lack of steals and hit and runs while waiting for the 3 run homer, I find the game less exciting now anyway. Add a couple of guys trotting down to first on ground balls, I'll start watching the Real Housewives of New York instead




Billy Martin supposedly once said that he would play Hitler or Stalin if it would help the team win. But it is hard to root for a team if you actively dislike the players.  All of us have had players we were happy to see leave, but there has only ever been one player where I felt that I would rather see the Yankees lose than this guy have a hand in helping the win and that was Ricky Henderson.


But, yeh, it will be hard to root for a team that features a catcher who shows no evidence of woking hard to improve and who takes his time chasing down passed balls and another guy who can't be bothered to run out grounders.


As for the sabermerics, it sure seemed at times like they had a better chance of coming back from a 3 run deficit than a one run deficit.




Iwasnever a Big Billy Martin fan but I would bet he never would have tolerated the way guys like Cano, Sanchez or Machado approached the game

I remember the game that he pulled Reggie out of RF after he didn't hustle.  Not sure today's players would respond to that, but Boone sure missed an opportunity to send a message to Sanchez by not benching him for a game or 2 after the game in which he lollygagged after a passed ball and jogged down to first on ball he could have beaten out.

Guessed you were going with Steve Hamilton. I watched that game. Tony Horton's reaction was so funny.

I think the Yanks got Hamilton from the Washington Senators for Jim Coates. Coates, if I remember looked a bit like Hamilton but he was a right hander.

You are correct. Looked it up. I never liked Hamilton as a pitcher although I did get a kick out of the floater. His stats weren't that bad . I guess better then I thought.


 I used to like to watch Lindy McDaniel.He was a good pickup and pitched well for the Yanks..

Realmuto hasn't been traded yet.  I wonder if Jeter would consider taking Gray, Romine, and Frazier for him.  That seems like it would be a win/win.

LL, I'd do that trade in a nanosecond. Not sure it would quite be enough to get it done though. Might need to toss in another prospect.

I think they might do it for Sanchez instead of Romine.

Sanchez/Realmuto would be straight up and I would be reluctant.  I don't want to lose Sanchez's potential without a huge haul.  I would sweeten the deal first from within our system.
