Savages in the DJ booth : 2021 Yankees

' The Yankees are counting on Gary Sanchez bouncing back at the plate after his awful 2020 season.

It’s why they didn’t designate him for assignment this offseason and even gave him a larger-than-expected raise to $6.35 million.

And while the beleaguered catcher has worked on his swing with Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames and played winter ball in the Dominican Republic to improve his approach at the plate, he’s got a different issue, as well, according to Hall of Fame catcher Ivan Rodriguez.

“He doesn’t enjoy baseball right now,” Rodriguez told WFAN. “He feels like…he comes to the ballpark and it’s a depressing thing for him right now. That’s what I see when he’s playing.” '

I don't want to spook you, Yankee fans, but that's exactly what they've been saying about Chris Davis for three years, right along with "he's working with the hitting coaches and he has a really new approach at the plate"

sanchez seems like a classic Guy Who Needs to Get the Hell out of New York

Agree. He’s got Knoblauch fever

It sounds way worse taken out of context like that, tbf.

Red flags are up already about German’s state of mind. On Wednesday night, he posted a bizarre “everything is over” message in Spanish on his Instagram account. He quickly deleted that post and then wrote a new one in Spanish that stated, “I’m ready.”

Gardner returns (again)
Would have liked to have Frazier

calstars, Sunday, 21 February 2021 17:37 (four months ago) link

I’m sure Frazier will have a leg up in the everyday job

Big Gary smashing one, has to feel good, then runs around the base paths looking like he’s stuck in a massive line at Costco

You love to see it.

Team hasn’t had a losing season in 29 years, so I guess this is “adversity”.

Stanton 3 for his last 33
Frazier no RBIs in last 67 plate appearances
Aghhhh

calstars, Thursday, 22 April 2021 10:50 (two months ago) link

we're not, or at least shouldn't be, anywhere near it -- he's a solid manager, cashman is too calm and too smart, and hank is no george -- but i do wonder what it would take to get boone fired

I've been out of NYC metro for last three weeks so haven't been able to relish the yankees calls on wfan.

Calls when the yankees are winning or losing are essentially the same

One World Series in 20 years. Who do you think you are, the Phillies? Not so easy to win championships when you can't buy every 'roided up FA around, eh?
