Look arguing about hot hands is something some people want to see and baseball is now an entertainment industry. My problem is Yankee baseball right now is just getting to the point where whatever we think should happen, doesn't. I agree it doesn't make sense to me and a lot of others on here to play Gary Sanchez and say he is a veteran is crazy.


He has been here a long time yes, that doesn't give him veteran rights IMO.  He had one good season and that was his first and it was a partial season where the pitchers didn't know him and he went ape with home runs and Cashman fell in love and Gary became his project and his boy.  He also has had some hot streaks with homeruns. But they were short lived....It is that simple and no one will change my mind. He did it with Bird and how did that turn out? Now he is doing it with Gardner.


He has his pets, and right now the two pets are Gardner and Sanchez. Both are not helping the Yankees and people are getting frustrated seeing them in the line up every day, and a guy who just hit three home runs is benched. Simple. That is not making sense to many fans and it is all over the media all day about Higgy and his three homeruns and he is on the bench. To the average fan that doesn't get involved with message boards, talk radio or tv news shows........it seems ridiculous.


To me as a long time Yankee fan it also seems ridiculous. It just does. Doesn't make anyone more right or wrong than another. We all want the same thing. We want to see the Yankees win and we want the guy who just hit three homeruns to be rewarded and get to play again over a guy who is hitting .134. That makes no sense in any language. 




Stand on your own. You don't speak for "a lot of fans." I don't speak for "a lot of fans" nor do I need their approval of a lot of fans for my opinions. I'm not the least bit frustrated with how this team has been playing down the stretch.

Sanchez is a veteran, but his terrible performance this year does not warrant rolling him out most days. He's flat-out terrible. He has 55 strikeouts, and with a .134 BA, is making out almost 87% of the time. 


I don't care that Higgy only had one good game. The guy won't be a star, but at this stage, he is better than Sanchez, who has not had even one good game all season. I have far more confidence in Higgy's defense than Sanchez, and even if he only bats .230, than is still almost 100 points better than GS. 


Sanchez is lost this year; sit him down more, and try to fix him for next year. Stop trying to make lemonade out of a lemon season for him.

Whether he did or not, Gary is just a Cog in the chain. I do not know what the Yanks will do next year, but maybe he can be traded for decent pitching. I do not mind if he excels somewhere else. Whatever potential he might have, he is better off going to another Team.

He's no good but you want to trade him for decent pitching? Sure, there must be twenty GMs willing to give up decent pitching for a cog in the chain.Undecided

It never ceases to amaze me how some fans say a player stinks and he should be traded and in return want good players.Undecided
