NY never lets guys go three nights in a row (not a factor tonight) but also they really don't like to use guys four times in five days, which tonight would rule out Chapman, Britton and Kahnle.Britton should hopefully be available and of course before I knew that Chapman might be out tonight. But, yeah managing is not my thing.
So funny to think about the way they operate now compared to the Torre years and the way he'd ride relievers. Not that long ago. Poor Scott.NY never lets guys go three nights in a row (not a factor tonight) but also they really don't like to use guys four times in five days, which tonight would rule out Chapman, Britton and Kahnle.
Playing that Twins lineup is draining, NY was already a bit burnt when they got to town and after semi-sleepwalking through game 1, they won the next two but it took so much out of them and BOS just steamrolled them three times in a row before the German/Sale Sunday night game turned things for both teams. BOS faces this combo their last series with NY, three with MIN at Fenway and then the four with NY start the next day (NY has a day off).So, apparently the problem for this team when they went to Fenway was that not enough players were injured....
They took him in the 2017-2018 winter and returned him a couple weeks into the season, and then NY didn’t protect him again and no one took him this past winter. Then enough guys went out for NY that they needed to add him to the 40 man and give him chances and once they figured out this 50-70 pitch long guy role for him, he has been great. NY has won all ten games Chad Green has started and Nestor has been the long guy in most of those.Tough to keep him on the big league team all year for the Orioles I guess, but yeah, he's a useful arm.
The more relevant thing to me is that people should back off the NY SPs a bit, given that environment. Also Tanaka specifically has had a few games lately where he is totally dominant for the first 4-5 innings and then loses it, which is all NY should need in the playoffs.With all these HR and as terrynever posted in one post an asterisk should be placed on this year. For a sport that is rich in statistical tradition, this is utterly ridiculous. And, I'm sure the same sentiments have been posted about before but yeah, it's unfair and unbalanced to previous records.
