sigh, Stanek hasn't been able to get anything near the strike zone but Sanchez is swinging at stuff bouncing 3 ft in front of the plate, then on a wild pitch Frazier tries to come home, but he's a dead duck
Hehehe, a touch younger but that's never a bad thing, due personally back to the Bronx for another trip. I like what I see of him on-diamond though, kind of what was expected of Tyler Wade the past few seasons.Brand Name, I think you might want to date Thairo Estrada. Is he your age?
Thairo is the next Willie Randolph. Tyler Wade is a AAAA player.Hehehe, a touch younger but that's never a bad thing, due personally back to the Bronx for another trip. I like what I see of him on-diamond though, kind of what was expected of Tyler Wade the past few seasons.
And yikes, for the sake of the game, I hope Diaz is okay, one of the better stories this year thus far, with Vogelbach, Caleb Smith, Mahle.
301, albeit in 18, is the Tampa record, think that's safe. 233 for 9 IP isn't happening either, although 216 for 8 has an offchance.TB with 142 combined pitches through 6.
Agree! If you told me to predict this a few years ago, I'd say to flip the names.Thairo is the next Willie Randolph. Tyler Wade is a AAAA player.
This reeks of a 'factoid' I'd like to see exactly how they found reliable stats on who's a 'fan' of each team, their ages, etc.Fewer old people die when their baseball team is winning 13-5 and heading back into first place.
FanGraphs just researched this and said Yankee fans live 12.7 years longer than Sox fans.
You need a lot of young AAA depth with options to pull it off successfully.Wow. Yanks finally wore down Tampa’s pitchers. 13 runs, a lot of walks. There is no real history to how a pitching staff reacts to Tampa’s heavy emphasis on bullpen usage. Maybe last year is the only template. My only question about this team is what happens when the starters falter?
Thanks, VORP. It is unprecedented to me what they are doing, and therefore hard to define. My respect goes to the position players who are impacting games. Lowe and Meadows, Diaz, et al. This team seems deeper. But it’s May and nothing is real yet.You need a lot of young AAA depth with options to pull it off successfully.
This year they’ve got DeLeon coming back from TJ around June/July, Honeywell (hopefully, his rehab has been slow) in August/September....and maybe they sign Keuchel??
Modern baseball.Quite the three run rally to break this one open (before Thairo's bases loaded double):
popped up bunt (1 out)
walk (run scores)
ball gets by the catcher, Clint tagged out at home, other runners move up (2 outs)
walk (run scores)
infield single (run scores)
7 baserunners, ball didn't get out of the infield.
