Higgy might become Coles personal catcher. He will not become the Yankees starting catcher. Great game last night but it was one game last night.




So you're not making long range plans for his HOF induction?





Just want to make it clear that this original thread was for Higgy to start while he is HOT. I think that;s a reasonable idea for him to start a hot Higgy and sit Sancez at .134 who last night went 1 for 5 with a weak single on a late swing to the opposite field with 2 outs and 0 RBI's. Also I didn't read anywhere that anyone on here disagreed that Higgy should get some starts over Gary to see what he can do while Gary is in the weeds trying to hack his way out. You want him to start over Gary tonight don't you? 




I would like to see Higgy over Sanchez tonight ... just to get to see if his bat is really hot and to ride that hot wave if it is.

Higgy is a 30 year old career minor league backup that couldn't beat out Romine. He is a Yankee and I want him to do well but last week many were screaming for the other catcher (forget his name) to get playing time. Too reactionary with tiny samples. Sanchez will be the catcher for this year.




OK, I know you like time on the job so....I ask you, forget the 30 year old minor leaguer part of Higgy for a minute. You have seen Sanchez since what 2016 on and off or 2017 I'm not sure but it's been awhile. Whatever it is a long enough time to see what he is. You want him playing tonight, or Higgy??  I for one didn't say I want the Yankees to give Higgy a long contract, I am fine with him as a back up. Who do you want back there tonight, and next year should they take a look to see what catcher they can get? BTW, I find it curious the Yankees did sign another catcher today. Don't have the particulars yet though.
 




I want Sanchez behind the plate tonight. Cantell you about next year because I don't know who they can get. You wanted to bench Didi for the playoffs last year because he went in cold. Sorry, you don't run baseball teams that way. 




 I don't run baseball teams anyway. I just watch the games and make my Opinions known. That's what fans do. That' s a bit bold you want Gary New. Hopefully he does well.  I don't see tt ya  never know. I guess the Yankees like your ideas which is one of the reasons why they haven't gone to the WS lately I suppose. That's what is being said by people in baseball circles way more knowledgeable than you or I. 


BTW I was way more sure they would not RESIGN Didi, than I was about thinking they shouold be benching him.  It was also not because he was going in cold, though he was.  It was so Luke could have played 1st base and Torres at SS with DJ on 2nd. BTW how did Luke on first base this season work out so far? You said you needed to see him more. Seen enough? So pointing out my mis steps isn't always the way you make them seem . No matter, it's all talking baseball and I like doing that. So do you.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

I'm not nor have I ever been a huge Sanchez fan. I would have benched him last year when he jogged after a passed ball that cost the Yankees a game. Fact is like it or not, he has been a mainstay of this team since 2016. If you start jerking veteran players around, you could quickly lose the locker room.

You believe you know more than anyone on everything Yankees, It's what makes you so annoying. As for the second hightlite, that's just rewritting history.


By the way, the Yankees are starting Sanchez tonite like I said so I guess that means they wont win the World Series

Opening eyes, but I'm sure Sanchez put his hands over his eyes every time Higgy came to bat... He has to feel the pressure of Higgy hitting and him striking out just about every time ?? It won't happen because Boone still thinks Sanchez is their # 1 guy, but this team's best offensive team would be last nights lineup with Andujar DH ing would be the best... I hope Judge gets it going before he gets hurt again... Him and Standon just can't stay healthy..




Stanton with his contract is going to be the DH so long a he can walk to the plate unassisted.  Sorry, Miggy.




I totally agree, but that doesn't make for the best of the team... Money seems to call who plays and who doesn't ?? I'd have Andujar DH and let Stanton sit until he let his no trade clause go and hope someone would take him off our hands, even if we had to pay half his salary, most likely still couldn't get anyone to take him...He's going to be another Elsbury...

Verry true newinn, Higgy had himself one hell of a great game, and you have to be happy for him.  Yes Sanchez is batting in the 160's this season, but remember Higgy has been a life time 160's hitter, and as you said a minor league player. So let's not anoint him, as the next Yogi Berea.


Yankees do need to get themselves a real dam good number 1 catcher going forward, but Sanchez will have that job for now. But he needs to be alot bettter. He still is not that great defensively. His bat kept him as number 1 behind the plate, but his over all game has become a big ? 



Tony, Sanchez is actually batting .134, with a hideous 55 strikeouts in 139 PA's. That equates to about 40% of the time he strikes out. His entire slash line is abysmal for a regular player. Next year is his age 28 season, but that is still young, inexpensive, and can bounce back with a better year.


J.T.Realmuto turns 30 in March, and is one of only 3 FA catchers under age 32. He is the only legitimate option to upgrade over Sanchez. He has made less than $20m in his entire career to date, so he will likely seek a fairly large contract.


Do we believe Hal will drop $20-$25m per for 3-5 years on him? I think it will take somewhere in that range to get it done. Somehow I don't see it happening.

I don't get this runnong the team on a day to day basis. Based on last night Judge should be sitting, Frazier in right and Andujar in left. You just don't manage teams that way.




new on your team you don't play who's hot and who's not ??? What have you seen from Sanchez that wants him be your #1 catcher over Higgy ?? Higgy has played and every game he's played he's been the better catcher, the only thing I will give Sanchez the better of is his arm..Higgy usually puts the bat on the ball, that's important to me.. I've seen many a pitches that Higgy has got out from his crouch to block pitches that Sanchez usually is running back to get, he's so much a better as a defensive catcher... And for you to say defence is so important like I heard you say so often, especially when it comes to Andujar, who you say shouldn't be player because he's a butcher on defense ?? To me Sanchez is just as much a butcher on defense as Andujar is, but Andujar can hit and Gary Sanchez can't...

no, on my team you don't play the who's hot and who's not when you are talking about guys that have established themselves as the core of the team. You can't have players questioning if they will have an opportunity to hit their way out of a slump. Keep yanking veteran players around in season and see how long you keep your locker. 


There has been a good option to Andujar at third and in the outfield and at first. You have a 30 year old minor leaguer as an option to Sanchez. No thank you.

I don't consider Sanchez a veteran player.

You call Sanchez an established part of this team ?? He had one good season and that was his first, he had a part of a second season and has stunk up the place ever since, he's a terrible defensive catcher with a pretty good arm, but it seems every game he catches he costs us, maybe not a blatant error but balls that should have been blocked or something else, he either hits a home run or he strikes out, it seems when he runs into one it's when you don't need it, but when the bases are loade, and I can think of a lot of times he's came up in that situation he strikes out... I'm not saying Higgy is a HOF catcher, but right now he's doing better in every respect than Sanchez is... And I don't care how much money Stanton is getting I'd much rather have Andujar as our DH than Stanton...
