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"

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

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

I like adler’s parent-disappointed-in-the-fanbase voice

You love to see it.

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

Frazier no RBIs in last 67 plate appearances

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

Only the level of schadenfreude changes.

Stanton is such a slob, it is hilarious the Yanks are going to be stuck with him for another 6-7 seasons.

earlnash, Sunday, 1 August 2021 20:42 (eleven months ago) link

the yankees lineup is completely ridiculous now. these gargantuan sluggers striding around like trees.

i wish this game had the old callup rules so we could see the 80th guy in the yankees bullpen it's 8:45PM and we just finished the third

the only possible explanation for this is that he was trying to avoid a bullshit 'blocking the plate' call, but fortunately no one even tried to suggest that

hate when the yankees win important games

mookieproof, Saturday, 25 September 2021 02:50 (nine months ago) link

gerrit cole’s pretty good. and eovaldi had nothing. but yeah. at least now the sox will get rid of those stupid uniforms. it’s crazy how dominant the sox look over bad teams and how helpless they look playing good ones.

Tracer Hand, Saturday, 25 September 2021 08:46 (nine months ago) link

and like, the yanks’ inclusion in that latter category is slightly debatable

I was going to say that it seemed like a low bar for number-retirement, but then I found a list of all the numbers the Yankees have retired--22--and it seemed reasonable...although it's ridiculous that Willie Randolph isn't on the list (twice as many WAR as O'Neill as a Yankee).
