can't quit on this kid yet. He has shown too much potential in his still short major league career. I think he's a potential DJL type hitter with a bit more power and he is my favorite player on this team.


I hope the Yanks just plug him in daily at 2nd base and a consistent spot of 6th or 7th in the batting order. Seems to me his confidence sometimes gets shaken and it impacts his play. Just put him in there and leave him alone. Don't jerk him around the way they have with certain young players.




    So who sits ? DJ ? Donaldson ?   I don't understand a lot of Cashman's moves, including the need for Donaldson, but this team has three "starters" locked up for two positions. I asked this before, but for a Game 7, what does your infield took like ? 


   


   




makes no difference to me if DJ plays second or third. If DJ is on 2nd Gleyber DH's but I think he should be on the field.




I still think Torres can be a very good player, nice to see he had a very good game. 




I thought Torres has proven he should be an ex-Yankees...SealedSurprised if only George was here...Laughing

A lot of the posters on this board have been ripping Torres and now his is stikin it in their faces. Guys one of the best clutch hitters on the team and has been since he's been a Yankee. And by the way he is a very good fielding 2nd baseman. 


Still only 25 years old and loaded with potential and most of you knuckleheads would have already ran him out of town if you had it your way

think that's 3 walk-offs for him in the 1st month. he seems to have the right approach when the game is on the line. believe all 3 walk-offs were to RF. good things happen when he doesn't try to do too much.

Actually, two walkoffs and the go-ahead single in the top of the 9th in Toronto off of Yimi Garcia. But yes, functionally, 3 game winning hits in 27 games.

For the last 5 years, Torres has had a 10 cent brain. Absolutely NO baseball instinct.


It's time for him to go.

Ya know, I'm kinda surprised how long this thread has gone without the mentioning of Jonah's most famous words,


"Mo is done!"


Remember?

he's had a strange career. 2 really great years and 2 so-so years. something about showing up out of shape for the shortened covid year and last year trying to jerk everything to the moon when the baseball changed.


kid has proven he has talent and is willing to learn. this year noticed him going to right more which i think is the right approach. maybe at times, needs a little guidance but let him play and he'll be fine. where does jonah get this stuff ...




Was there any question?

Cano hit better than Torres, and the Yanks were better off without him.

what a clueless statement. yankees were not better off w/o cano and had a hole there for a couple years. let's see there was roberts & drew. didn't sorta get fixed until we got starlin castro and neither he or torres are a cano.


now if the question is, were we better off not paying cano $240. a resounding yes. but no way have any of the 2ndbasemen since robbie been on his level. not even close.
