Wonder who is getting sent down, or maybe someone is going on the DL.


Since they are in a NL ballpark, they need an extra bat. Rumor mill says either Cole or Hale will be sent down to Scranton.

We can get by with ok pitching if we added Bryce to that lineup. We need a lefty bat as well.

This.
Judge played CF a few times this season already and has history there. Give him a full offseason there.
Stanton played LF a few times this season himself.
The table is set.


I think Judge can play CF but I don't want him running around there long term. Would wear down his lower body. Not worth the risk. The hope is Frazier can fake CF until Florial is ready. Judge/Stanton/Harper can rotate between the corners and DH spot.

Whatever works.
Harper would be a much needed lefty bat and would love Yankee stadium for homers.

So basically put Hicks on DL to buy time on who to send down?
Clint comes up and still have to make a decision on Drury.

I doubt they'd DL Hicks to buy time on Drury.

Drury had minor league options and they already optioned him there. Hicks is a good player, and while Frazier was tearing it up lately, Hicks has enough track record hitting and is a switch hitter, to go with really good fielding in CF.

The only thing the Yanks might be messing around with, is Hicks not really being all that hurt, but felt they could be extra cautious because of OF depth, and that it was a chance to reward Frazier for good play. But I think mostly it was just that Hicks got injured - a little - and the Yanks figured just DL him briefly around a day off etc.

Tanaka batting 8th. Boone is a revolutionary.

Managers have done before. Just take the analytics passing over their findings after a quick query that says scenario wise, 8th finds least amount of on base setups.

Over 7 seasons, Didi Gregorius hits .266...As a full-time starter, he hit for a best .287 with a rookie Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez missing a month (roughly) of the season.

He's currently hitting .260 avg after going 0-30...we ALL know, in THAT stacked line up With Stanton/Torres/Andujar, Didi is going to get hot again and very possibly finish close to .300.

What am I trying to say?

I'm NOT saying Tyler Austin is on the same playing field as Sir Didi.

I'm saying...That line up has Soooo much protection up and down that line up (this IS partially why Neil Walker is hitting), if Tyler Austin gets consistent playing time...it's possible he may sneak in there with a .270 avg. Am I putting all my money on Vegas? No. Obviously. But there's a chance.

And then when he gets misleading numbers, you trade him for an even BETTER asset.

I mean, I don't know why the pounce...it's not a decree or a commandment. It's an outside of the box look at how guys can benefit from a stacked line up.


I'll answer the question for you.

224 career MLB AB's

.230 BA / .293 OBP



take your L and walk it off.


I think its actually funny that you are using career statistics for trying to **** on Detfink's statement when you literally typed on this board the other day that Hicks is a 380 OBP, 850 OPS and 20 SB kind of player. Meanwhile in your world for knowing EXACTLY who a player is going to be let me clue you in on something.

Aaron Hicks career at bats: 1,540

Career Batting Average and On Base Percentage:

.231 BA/ .316 OBP

And I get it, you want to use Hicks 300 AB's last year as some sort of absolute, unequivocal concrete data that speaks to you thinking he is the player you claim he is. But there is an extremely high chance that you are dead wrong. That Hicks is nothing more than a 348 OBP, 244 BA, 780 OPS type of player. The best part is I really don't like Austin AT ALL. I just don't know why the concept of him potentially hitting 270, even when he said he wouldn't bet on that in Vegas would seem to irritate you that much.

Just heard the news. Damn. Cano 80 game suspension is unfortunate. As I understand it, the new rules mean anyone found guilty of PEDs is also banned from the playoffs. I guess he went to some Dominican doctor who prescribed him a diuretic.

Well this will cost Cano $11M. Robinson Cano is 35 years old. The Mariners will be paying him till he's 98yrs old. In a word, sad.

Im not going to judge Cano. Out of all the cheating that goes on at any job, PED is not at the top of my evil list. At the same time, the excuses these athletes give are an an insult to the fans intelligence.

So Hicks is not going to the DL and this guy knows what he's talking about. 8-)

Is there something wrong with you? Do you not see the difference between the 2? Because it's clear as day.

Austin has no track record. No sample size. Of success in the MLB. Zero. He doesn't have a season this year, nor last year to back that assumption of batting .270.

Hicks as recent as last year had an OBP of .380 and OPS north of .850.

This year, Hicks' OBP is over 100 points higher than his BA.

Do you not see the difference? Don't be the type that kicks and screams when he's wrong and has to make straw man arguments.

Runners on 2nd and 3rd with no one out and then 3 straight Ks. That's the type of thing that should piss off every fan.

Rotation after Severino is a huge concern right now. Huge decision of riding these guys the rest of the season or find someone(s) at the deadline.

Tanaka having his traditional first half struggles before he turns it around in July. With his style of pitching, I expect the solo homers because if it doesn't hit that spot, it's gone. What concerns me, he's starting to run the count up on this guys, which leads to more men on and BIGGER innings for the opponent.

Tanaka is an SP3.
Gray is an SP4
CC is an SP4

Team needs a top end arm. Fulmer has shoulder concerns and I don't even think he's good. Doesn't get K's and ERA is high despite pitchers park.

Archer isn't an ace, but I still believe he'd have the Verlander-effect playing with a better team.

I don't see any big SP becoming available. Maybe Manaea in Oakland?
