We've got a race !!! We'll see if our players are up to the task, they have an easier schedule coming up, they need to take care of their own business...

First they need to clear up some nagging injuries with guys like DJ and Gio.


They need Stanton to at least play LF a few times a week to keep the best bats in the lineup at DH.


Need Sevy or Kluber to at least be able to give some solid innings down the stretch.


Britton needs to regain his form (Sysan said he only has pitch like 10 innings this season so he has major rust)


AND just keep Gardy and Wade out of the starting lineup.





When Gardner gets go-ahead runs, do you cry? Just a little?

No doubt if we can get everyone healthy and play up to the back of their baseball cards this team is as good as anyone in the AL... The question is can they do that ?? This team has added pieces to the puzzle to make them a legit threat to win it all...

No doubt getting and staying healthy and playing to the backs of their baseball cards is key.  Once again they have won the first 2 games if a 3 game series.  Can they finally finish a sweep against a bad team?


They are certainly legitimately in the race for the 2d WC spot.  But beyond that?  They are still at or near the bottom of MLB in they percentage of base runners that they get on base and then actually score.  The have the worst BA in all of MLB with runners on 3rd and less than 2 outs and are 29th overall in BA with RISP.  They gotta stop depending on wild pitches and passed balls for scoring runners from 3B.  When i see some improvement there then maybe it will be time to think about shooting for more than a road game in the WC play in game.

Jon when anyone gets the go ahead run you enjoy it BUT Gardy is done. He was a .220 hitter who now is a sub .200 hitter and many balls are dropping in front of him and a few he can't run down any longer. It's K, pop out, ground out and he walks to the bench frustrated. 


The guy had a long career as a rookie to veteran and many fans adore him. Every player can hang around for a few more years and occasionally do something but Gardy needs to realize he is only hurting the team and he is DONE. Retire and let the Yankees give him a job to stay with the team. I don't think he will be a manager but coach working with players yes.




keep dreaming. gardy is not retiring, particularly with the team now looking like they could make a run. i'd be starting allen over him but gardy's built a career's worth of trust w management so they're gonna play him over allen's 40 ABs w the team. btw he's a career .256 hitter so get your facts straight (yeah i know he hit .223 in last year's **** season). and btw today he was right in the thick of things - jump starting things in the 8th and his slow grounder led to all sorts of mayhem and a run in the 9th.

The cries for Gardy to retire are beyond ridiculous ... he will most likely retire at the end of the season ... or post-season ... not before then.

Why are some trashing Gardy. With so many on IL, he manage to stay healthy to contribute as much as he can. Lets remember he was slated to be the 4th outfielder. No one expected him to play with regularity.


Leave the man alone. He paid his due.

Gardner has played pretty well this year, no he's not hitting like he did a few years back, but just stop and think of some of the big hits and catches he's had... I imagine he will retire after this year, but I'd hope the Yankees could find a place for him to stick around as a coach or something...
