Symptoms



Is not hitting a symptom?  LOL


I know I'm probably wrong, but I've been saying it since he returned, just don't like how his eyes look.

For me, the question Ive asked myself is if Cash and Erik Neander swapped jobs next season which team would be more successful?



'55,


Note: this is from a “glass half empty” fan. I hear and mostly respect the “glass half full” fans, and even those complaining about the previous and/or constant complainers on this board. But there’s always more than one viable point of view on subjects that require interpretation, and a team’s construction is one of them.

The Yanks are on a run. May it continue, although there’s still September to contend with. Moreover, and a minority viewpoint or not--I know many here will disagree--I’d like to see a complete managerial overhaul as to how this team continues through this decade beginning 2022, and no matter whether we make the playoffs or even get to the Series this year.

Boone, to me, a good person, is a “B+” manager: okay, but a “good try but no cigar” manager in the end. Cashman’s a “B+” GM. Yes, he’s made some good moves, but early on, many of them were mostly due thanks to Watson and Michael’s previous decisions. And before this recent run, many fans were warning about the obvious mishap of Cashman’s RH shaped team line-up (with which he publicly disagreed, please note): that given the physical environment of YS, we needed a strong left-handed balance from the beginning. Finally, yes, it came about--with two-thirds of the season finished, and with the Yanks floundering right before. It doesn’t even matter if Rizzo and Gallo aren’t hitting gangbusters. Just their potentially “dangerous” offensive presence (not to mention top defense) in the line-up makes a big difference. Opposing pitchers/managers have to worry about the odds, which often leads them to make mistakes.

Conversely, Cashman’s (what now seem) good moves (e.g., Holmes so far, Urshela--after Andujar’s projected takeover of 3B turned self-evidently into a visibly wrong choice--Voit--until Cashman’s egregious put-down of his place on the team--Wandy and a few others after trading away AAAA players like Tauchman and Park--again so far) are balanced out by some poor ones. Among others, why keep promoting the offensively impotent Davis over the switch-hitting Allen, who did well when he had a chance for us to play and is hitting .320 plus at SWB? Why this stubbornness, also evident in the case of the mediocre Cessa before his departure? Yes, Allen might falter in the end, but doesn't he deserve the premier chance to play the OF?

We’ll see how Cashman’s other moves (Heaney et al.) turn out, but, simply, my main point is tht even if they do, I think he’s been here too long. As I stated above, the team needs a managerial overhaul for next year (no, I don’t hold to the adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” this time around), but he’s treated by Hal and his board (including the nothingness named Levine) as if he were an untouchable. But no one is that, as the far-better GM George Weiss might have informed him. I wish Hal and the Steinbrenner family would sell the team. That obviously won’t happen, but we all can indulge in utopian thoughts.




Well said. It is my opinion however that Hal/Cashman will never part. Cashman may get a promotion and Levin could get tired of the inner Yankee personel hating him and leave but you can't count on that. You said Cashmnan was a B+ GM and while B is where I would be, B+ is fair. He just is stale to me, makes moves that seem he is thinking too far ahead when he makes them and he sacrafices the now, IE Allen/Davis for example which is the reason I took the + off the B you gave him for other such moves. Overall I agree. This team's leaders need fresh blood, a new outlook and a few "old dogs" taken to the rescue center for new homes.


Players like Judge who could be a Yankee staple for a few years may just not be here due to this LT Hal is obsessing over,  and right now our core 4 or 5 is looking mighty shaky. Where is our young home grown and our Posada, Jeter, Bernie, Andy, Mo? What put them here is not here anymore and hasn't  been for quite awhile, or had any viable replacements to date as a core group that we can keep here with Cashman buying and selling like he is working for Macy's. Just what I see. That sounds a lot like what the Rays do, which is what the Yankees seem to admire and yes the Rays do win, but they are not the Yankees. I'm pro Cashman leaving or getting kicked upstairs and Boone IMO will retire due to his health I feel. We will see. Again well said Hampfan.

I get it. I certainly  could be wrong but I doubt he would get medical clearance if he wasn't 100 percent
I've seen him go after foul balls and saw no indication of any fatigue. Guess I'm old school in feeling if a regular is slumping (as they all do) and they're not hurting the team, you just have to let them hit their  way out of it.

If it's just a slump, I agree with you ... just hope I'm worried for nothing.

the covid thing w rizzo is pure speculation. no announcement. medical has given him clearance, i'm sure the manager has been involved and obviously rizzo's said he can play. of course our "friend" is all over the covid thing w rizzo because it effects voit. if he is a "bit" under the weather, so be it. rarely during the course of a season is a player 100%. he's slumping and he had a layoff. you can argue that maybe he should have had some rehab games but they felt he didn't need them.

Sorry I gave our "friend" some ammunition on Rizzo ... didn't mean to do that ... it's just that I didn't like the way his eyes looked and was worried he still might be feeling impacts from covid.  From the people I know that have had it, you don't feel good after just ten days.

Yeah, since coming back Rizzo sure looks like the same guy like he looked like when he got here. Swinging wildly at out side pitches. That's not him I don't think, because he crowds the plate and feasts on pitches inside as is his reputation. No reason to suspect he is not "right." Missing balls down the middle with swing and misses is one thing, taking them for strike 3, not him usually. So I'm sure he is just fine and it is just a "slump" and it is just a coincidence for just him. The fact that most people who had Covid still get light headed at times, and some can't smell or taste for days or weeks even after it goes away depending on how bad they had it, and at times get short of breath with exercise or exertion is just a rumor I guess. 


There is absolutely no way Rizzo could have after effect symptoms, from Covid, none. I heard that on here from the Doctors and ex major league coaches that post here.. It's just a slump. I feel better already that he will start hitting right away now. Maybe the West Coast air will make him better. Now for real, and what it is worth, at best if they think he is OK he should be DHing when Stanton is in the outfield. That puts Luke and his .400 average and 13 RBI's and player of the week award winner  and last years HR king on first base. I mean that sounds outrageous to those baseball wizards who are actually acting like that makes no sense at all. Laughable, and absolutely silly. Look, the sky is blue, and water's wet... no it isn't ... LMAO!

i've said i would have played voit but that apparently boone valued defense & the LH bat more in the NL park confident his player was able to perform. with the way they rest players around here at the slighest provocation, do you think he'd run a player out there who wasn't healthy. btw cole and monty had covid, returned and played fine. we've had nearly half the team out with it including judge, loaisiga, cortes and peralta. no problems. but rizzo - has to be ...


regarding the covid, NONE of us know. to say a player is underperforming must mean he's "sick" is unfounded. maybe he has a hangnail ... he sat out 10 games, perhaps he needs to get his timing back and yeah maybe he's not 100% but is old school and willing to play through stuff. btw after his initial hot start, he was hitting .125 in the games prior to the covid. perhaps he was already affected by it but we don't and will never know.
