He seems to have the yips. Or maybe he can’t pitch without the sticky stuff

Chapman should not be in any high leverage situations going forward. I wouldn't even trust him to keep a 5 run lead.

Ottavino too. Choke artist leaves the Bronx and gets pissed at the Yankees. Why doesn’t he look in the damn mirror for why he’s gone?

For the first time this season, I'm sad that the Yankees didn't win last night (because there was no game). I'm finally beginning to believe in them again.

He is has no confidence in his FB, he did get screwed by the missed 3rd strike which was ruled a foul ball and the Odor error, Lasagna should be the closer. Since 2017 World Series teams haven’t had a good pen, maybe put 2-3 starters in the pen on postseason roster.

Former Yankees Mike Ford and Mike Tauchman have both been designated for assignment by their respective teams for their inability to hit the baseball (Ford was hitting just .134 and Tauchman .178).

The Yankees traded Tauchman to the Giants for lefty reliever Wandy Peralta who has become an integral part of the Yankees bullpen and a PTBNL. That player turned out to be 2021 draftee 1B prospect Connor Cannon (who scouts have close to a 80 power rating subpar defense).
Image

Ford was traded to the Rays for cash an a PTBNL. That player turned out to be a 22 year old OF prospect Aldenis Sanchez who is tearing up Low-A ball hitting .433/.500/.588 (33 hits, 8 doubles, 2 homers, 15 rbis, 13 steals in just 23 games).
Image

So 2 excellent moves by ol Cash.

Cashman has always been the king of low key trades. Who was the last prospect they traded that you can look back on and regret in hindsight now? Mike Lowell in 1999?


You really have to dig, but the worst ones I can think of in the last 15 years or so are giving up Mark Melancon in the Berkman trade in 2010 and giving up Tyler Clipper ion 2007 for Jonathan Albaladejo. Both had very goo success elsewhere in the pen. For those to be the worst though, obviously Cash is doing something well. More recent ones which could come back to haunt us are giving up Justus Sheffield and Erik Swanson to Seattle for Paxton and even more notably giving up James Kaprielian in the Sonny Gray deal. That definitely has the potential to be the worst Yankees trade in the last 20+ year and it might not end up being close. Right idea, since clearly Sonny Gray can really pitch - just not in NY.


The Taillon trade is working out great for the Yankees, but also looking nice for Pittsburgh.

Maikol Escotto has a 115 wRC+ as a teenager in full season, bat-first Canaan Smith has a 132 wRC+ in AA, Miguel Yajure has already gotten good results in the Majors, and Roansy Contreras is steamrolling through AA as a 21 year old.

Gallo trade has similar potential for the Rangers. Those two moves (Gallo/Taillon) have used younger prospects with greater volatility, but more upside. It'll be interesting to see how they play out.

Stanton is playing well. Judge is on fire now. Even Sanchez is no longer ruining the batting order. Amazing how much things changed so quickly.

Yeah and it's weird how their bats have come alive since they traded for Rizzo and Gallo especially considering that both Rizzo and Gallo have been pretty bad at the plate.

Yankees rumored to be favorites to get #1 SS prospect here:

That's why I think the brand and the winning tradition is so powerful.

Rizzo set the tone when he arrived.
Gallo is hitting little better now.
I want to sign Rizzo and trade Voit.

It's so hard to know why or how, and I'm sure Cash would love to bottle it if he could figure it out. It could be that players got shaken up knowing the team would bring in new people if they didn't produce, or it could be that having a lefty-right-lefty-righty lineup is better against the pitching. Just glad it happened now instead of it going the other way, with a good first half and falling apart in the second half LOL

Friday the 13th, just clicking on all cylinders right now. Great to have Gio back at 3rd.

This isn’t rocket science. Gallo and Rizzo don’t both have to be batting a 300 to have a significant impact on the lineup.

Just their presence alone breaks up all the righty bats that we have and it makes it so much more difficult to navigate when you’re a SP on the other side of the hill.

Even from a managerial standpoint this balanced lineup gives you a lot to think about when it comes to situational pitching, getting the right shift in place or defensive alignment and seeking out the right matchups.

The Yankees loading the deck with righty bats has been a major problem for a long time now and everyone should be thrilled it got addressed. Warts and all both Gallo and Rizzo move the needle in more ways than one.

They're also defensive upgrades at their respective positions. So yeah, it's not just about the lineup balance they they're bringing.

I took them this long to figure out that Stanton needed to play consistently in the OF in order to start getting a rhythm at the plate. Also his HR's aren't garbage time dingers either. He's leading the team HR's that turn into leads.
