    6/17: Take It Easy

    Let’s lighten up on the Yankees’ ‘Big Boy’ lineup taking charge of the American League right away. Stanton returns Tuesday and might be game ready but the reality is he hasn’t seen big league pitching since April Fool’s Day. Encarnacion joins the team tonight but has rested a sore back over the...

    NY roster 2019

    You gotta play defense against Tampa because their pitching dictates low-scoring games. Clint proved he can’t play right field. Injuries dictated he do it on short notice. But he had early-season problems in left field, too. My worry is he goes down to Scranton and acts like he doesn't belong...

    NY roster 2019

    Having options is a curse. But it was either him or Maybin, who is a polished player.

    6/16: Somebody’s Baby

    To quote John Sterling, it’s all about starting pitchers. Paxton did good today.

    6/16: Somebody’s Baby

    White Sox send Odrisamer Despaigne to the mound against James Paxton in a 2:10 start. Odrisamer must be somebody’s baby, which continues our Jackson Brown theme for another day. I am running out of Brown songs but we can always Take It Easy against Tampa on Monday. Despaigne throws from the...

    6/15: Running on empty

    True. I just worry about running DJ into the ground. The every day utility job, playing three positions, is a grind over 162. Zobrist did it well. Tough to take DJ’s bat out, though. He just singled here in ninth.

    6/15: Running on empty

    Maybe in the 8th inning of a 7-0 game, you bring in Gio for defense.

    6/15: Running on empty

    Clint knows he’s gone. He cooked his own goose with that embarrassing fielding display against Boston on Sunday night baseball. At least he kept hitting.

    NY trades for Encarnacion

    EE would be a nice platoon partner for Moreland in Boston.

    6/15: Running on empty

    Saving the bullpen, too.

    NY trades for Encarnacion

    Gardner’s playing time is going to shrink. If EE is the most frequent DH, then Stanton in left and Judge in right.

    6/15: Running on empty

    How does this impact Voit’s playing time, if at all?

    6/15: Running on empty

    My oldest brother, a Seattle fan, asked me two days ago if the Yanks would trade for EE and I scoffed. Now I owe him an apology.

    Gleyber hits a low changeup over CF wall. 4-0.

    6/15: Running on empty

    Cortes takes over, strikes out first two batters, then two singles and a deep fly to center off Abreu’s bat. Caught on the warning track by Hicks.

    Chad Green with six Ks in two innings. 33 pitches. One hit allowed.

    6/15: Running on empty

    I just came back from Providence where a Gay Pride festival is taking over the city. Had a margarita at a Mexican Grill. No broken cars. Should have had two margaritas.

    6/15: Running on empty

    Yanks have lost three straight. It has been a team effort. These guys do everything together so it figures they need a little bit of everything to grab one measly win. Chad Green launches a bullpen game tonight. Somebody named Lopez pitching for the White Sox, who have been playing with some...
