All: what is up with Stanton? His advanced metrics (barrel %, WOBA, xBA) indicate that he should have better production than he's shown. Nursing an injury? Or just random bad luck?
My casual analysis is just that he hasn't gotten back into a groove since being hurt and missing a couple weeks, and he has always been very streaky. He had a stretch in mid-May where he went 10-16 in 4 games with 4 HRs, I'm sure he will have another hot streak before too long. I definitely don't think he is nursing an injury, he made some impressive throws from RF to 2B last night and has looked very solid defensively.

He seems fine . . .

Rizzo works a 15 pitch walk and now Stanton is up with one out and Valdez tiring.

If Cashman is trying to move Gallo in an 'addition by subtraction' move (seems likely from all reports), the Bryce Harper injury makes PHI a very good fit. The money doesn't matter to them (they are over the $230M line anyway) and they badly need a good defensive player, Gallo could play one of the corners and Castellanos and Schwarber can cover DH.

Benintendi would be a better fit in Philly, but KC will be looking for a better return than a bucket of balls and salary relief the Yankees would get for Gallo.

Yeah, what makes me feel better is that they have been doing it since last deadline, 82-38 now since trading for Rizzo. Teams are going to come at them hard the next two weeks though:

3 TB
3 @ TOR
3 @ TB
4 HOU

As I said above, we will know a lot more after that, that will be 73 games in.
9-4 in this stretch after some gutty comeback wins this week.

3-0 TB
2-1 @ TOR
2-1 @ TB
2-2 HOU

NY has still only lost two series this season, one early on in BAL, one to CWS at home.

You can start one, to me it’s almost pointless. Last year Cashman traded for Holmes and Rizzo who completely turned around the team, and not one person hypothesized about either of those two beforehand. This year NY has fewer holes and more potential internal solutions, so Cashman’s moves will be even harder to predict.

NY DFAs Banuelos to activate Chapman (Sears up and down in the spot in between), really too bad but there are only so many spots.

Manny B has no options left but is under team control for at least 4-5 years if he works out, and he impressed in spring training (he was the final cut), in AAA, and in NY in the few chances he got. He could help a lot of bullpens right now, I hope NY gets something interesting back.

Lucali is legit. Though, I once went to brooklyn crab and then walked to Lucali, the line was around the block and I was completely shitfaced so I emphatically told everyone on line they were dumb for waiting on a line for pizza when there's awesome pizza everywhere.

I am kind of a pizza fanatic but have not made it to Lucali yet, although I'm well aware of them. Luckily we have Razza here in Jersey City and during the start of Covid, they allowed online ordering/pickup for the first time (previously either you had to eat there or you could go there, order, wait, and take out, which was annoying) and I have taken full advantage of that.

It turns out that Lucali pic was from last season though, the guy should have known better than to post it.
