That is horrible news.Oh no, between this and Boone's face when he talked about it after the game, I think he might have an Achilles tear, fuck fuck fuck.
"Mike Tauchman said it felt like he was kicked in the left calf when it tightened up on him tonight. Heading up to New York tomorrow for an MRI."
It all happened on one June night in Fenway when Clint butchered three plays. Management sent him to Scranton. We fell in love with Tauchman during July.I think it's funny that in maybe 3 months we have gone from most of Yankee-dom being indignant about NY promoting Tauchman over Frazier to seemingly no one thinking Clint is a passable substitute for MT.
Guys like Frazier used to be known as “flakes.” Phil Linz, Bouton, etc. Flakes find ways to set themselves apart from the team. That rarely works out well, especially on a tight team like the 2019 Yankees. We should never forget that Clint knocked in over 40 runs for this team when it was initially short handed. He had a lot of big hits. Seems like his teammates accept him fairly well, which is so typical of this group.I love Clint's energy and he has a beautiful swing. However, his media management skills are a huge turnoff. There was no single event that pushed me away from him but just constant little things. Last week or the week before he made a pretty nice sliding catch and instead of letting it speak for itself, he posted to twitter "this guy can't field." Little things like that will bury him.
Amazingly this somehow includes the three straight obliterations in late July in Fenway, 38-13 combined. NY won 14 of the other 16 meetings, did not see that coming.Yanks will win season series, 14-5, barring a sudden revival of the Red Sox, who are quietly sleeping this game away.
