The Yankees are scouting two Angle’s lefty pitchers for a possible trade. The pitchers are:
Tyler Skaggs and Andrew Heaney, a pair of 27-year-old southpaws. Skaggs is in the midst of a career year. He’s pitched to a 2.57 ERA over 98 innings. His peripherals have been outstanding, as well. The southpaw owns a 3.00 FIP and a career-best 9.64 K/9. He also generates a healthy 47.9% groundball rate.
Jonathan Loaisiga, designated to start one of the two games on Monday, is out indefinitely with a sore shoulder. He is on his way to be examined by The Yankees Team Doctor. Instead, we get
Luis Cessa and possibly two or three innings and bullpen burnout.
We also get
Sonny again. It is now a loss, no matter who Sonny Boy pitches against.
We get “We like his stuff.” He has been a winner and we have to help him.” “On The Yankees .241 BA with RISP, we have to create traffic.” My reply: On Gray, if this is coming from the organization on not you, give up the manager’s job and look into
On the awful hitting with RISP, you need to speak to Judge and Stanton, regarding swinging at the low outside pitch. You need to stop allowing free swingers like Stanton, to swing 3-0. You need to try a little harder to manufacture runs. Stand up to
The Genius. Is, despite the Yankees record is a PROBLEM! I understand Clint Frazier is not playing against the lefty. If this is true, why not? EDB
No gifs, cute sayings, jokes. Sonny Gray, will cost the Yankees the division, if he is left in the rotation. Genius Cashman, can easily get rid of him. Gray earns a base rotation of $6,500,000 this season. Gray cannot pitch for the Yankees. The fact that Boone said Gray will pitch against Baltimore, is scary. Whether that comes from Boone or puppet master Cashman, it is time for Gray to go. Where: Sand Diego, Pittsburgh, Oakland, Cincy, etc..,,, etc,,.. Gray said he would take the ball. He will again crap his pants.
On the subject of Boone, whom I have supported, Mr Boone needs to stop giving hitters a green light on 3-0 counts. Stanton should have taken a pitch with a 3-0 count and the bases loaded. I would have meant a run and one less out, resulting in more runs. EDB
the Yankees will turn to Neil Walker, who has been a colossal disappointment since signing a $4 million deal this spring with the expectation that he could be the everyday second baseman until Torres proved he was ready.
Instead, the 32-year-old has been wildly unproductive at the plate since joining the Yankees.
A slump that was first blamed on a late arrival at camp has lasted into July, as Walker has admittedly had a difficult time in a new role, splitting time at first, second and third — and spending most of his time on the bench.
Higashioka is 0-24 and is overmatched by major league pitching. Injuries do happen. However, why don’t the Yankees have a catcher in the minors to bring up? There are flaws in Genius Cashman’s game.
EDB, are there any other catchers that the Yankees could bring up?
Wilken Castillo Here’s the knock 34 years old. Not on the 40 man roster. 2018 stats…..244 0 hrs 3 rbis
Francisco Diaz 28 years old like Higashioka Not on the 40 man roster. 2018 stats…in 126 at bats .292 1 hr 20 RBIs.
Giovanyy Gallegos was demoted to Scaranton. I wonder why The Yankees like this guy so much? He pitched well against The Phillies. Against The Red Sox, he gave up three runs. Are there any relievers at Scranton that are better than Gallegos, EDB? Let’s take a look.
Josh Rogers 23 years old, throws left. He has pitched 86 innings and is probably a starter. 6-5 with a 3.32 E.R.A.
J.P. Feyereisen 25 years old Throws right 4-2 1.59 1 save
I do not see anyone else. I hear about all the prospects the Yankees have. The Yankees need a catcher, a starter and a reliever. Where are they? EDB
Gray’s E.R.A,. is over 7.oo at Yankee Stadium surpassing such Yankee Great Pitchers as:
Carl P. Pavano
Hidecki Pussy Toad Irabu
Gray’s E.R.A. against the Red Sox in four games, 9.35.
Gray when asked by Suzyn Waldman what happened? He had no answers. Suzyn said she felt bad for him. It is plain and simple, Sonny does not have the head or heart to pitch in NY, not an easy task. He is another Genius Cashman poor starter, brought in. Clearly, the poorest part of Genius Cashman’s game. Any soulution? Trade him to Sand Diego, a place where there is no pressure to win. EDB
Kyle Higashioka, who should not be holding a bat. He is 0-23 and does not look like he can hit major league pitchers.
Luis Cessa, who can’t pitch and can’t hit.
You managed to hit
AaRon “No Can” Hicks. Although Hicks has been hot, he is sill batting .250. So you gave away a game to The Red Sox. You rambled on about getting healthy. Nonsense. You will have to do a lot to earn my trust back. EDB
