Statement game.  Aaron Boone, "I can't trust Chapman with only a one run lead."




Another statement should be Gallo and Hicks are sitting.

If I am seeing this right, he's K'd 45 times in 102 AB's. That's almost 50%! He's had 18 hits and 16 walks.


I don't know what is wrong with him, but he's gotta go. Judge and Stanton aren't going to remain red hot forever to carry the load.


And Mr. 30/30 could use some phantom injury time down in Florida, where he can play golf.

Hopefully when some players cool down, others will heat up.


As I tune into wfan in the wee mornings for a few minutes, host will say... Yankees stellar record is irreverent. Even if they win 120 games, losing in post season is an abject failure.


What Mets accomplish is much more meaningful/interesting. Unlike Yankees, Mets are exciting to watch. Yankees are ho hum and boring. The most talked about team in NY are the Mets.


The host said..I'm tired of Yankee fans calling to praise them. Let's see if they can maintain their position in the months ahead.


And here I thought the flagship station of the Yankees should at least pretend to express some compliments.

 No surprise if it was Sal Licata. He is nothing but a Met shill. He is on SNY also and if you see him from his home studio he has nothing except Met stuff all over. No objectivity just a jealous whiny Met fan. No credibility either. A few weeks ago he was on SNY and they were picking best rotation in NY choosing between Met and Yankee starters. He only had one Yankee on his list and that was Cortez at number 3. He did not even have Cole in there because he said he could not be trusted. He chose Tyler Megill over Cole who has a lifetime record of 8-8 with an ERA over 4.4. He then says he based his decision on how they are currently pitching even though Cole was in the middle of his hot streak his last 6 starts. But it gets better. He also had Max Scherzer number 1 based on his career and Bassett as number 2. Fact is if he was being honest Based on this year no one has pitched better than Cortez and its not even that close. I just dislike these hosts that are pure phonies. That is why I don't listen anymore even to the WFAN. Between Boomer, Gio ,Evan and this clown they are all shills for the Mets and come football time the Jets. Not my cup of tea.

The Mets are the shiny new toy in town, playing good baseball and with an owner who has made it clear money will not stand in the way of improving the team.  Sort of like George in his hey day without the college football coach mentality.


Still, "boring" though some may find the Yankees - they are not! - it is very encouraging that when the long winning streak was snapped we did not see them go into a slump where they lose 5 or 6 of the next 8 as happened in 2021.  But it does percolate in the back of the mind, how long can they keep this up while continuing to run out 3 black holes on ofense, Gallo, Hicks and the catcher.  The pitching has been outstanding and the top 6 in the lineup continue to produce night after night.


Wonder what the price tag for Soto would be.

    Do you think the Nats are looking to dump Strasburg ?  That might be part of an NBA style deal.

wouldn't be surprised.  They seem to have gone full on "Oakland Athletics."  still:he is 33 and owed a lot of money.


he has only pitched a combined 26 2/3 innings in 2020 & 2021 and hasn't pitched yet in 2022.  Carpal tunnel surgery in 2020 and then another surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in 2021. The latter injury is the one that is keeping him from playing in 2022 so far.

Not to say bad things can't happen to Yankees...McGill is on IL and Scherer is heading there...a trifecta with Degrom on top of the list. He's not likely to return till August.


That being said, Cohen will open up his wallet come july.

Which is likely more than can be said for Hal, even though the Mets payroll is already  something like $19 M more than the Yankees' payroll.  Cohen cetainly looks like an owner to whom winning is more important than the size of the year's profit margin.
