Howard is a big prospect of theirs and was on 3 days rest and not especially stretched out.
He hasn’t pitched more than 4 innings all season. Seems his last appearance was June 28 unless I’m reading his game logs wrong (always a possibility).

Girardi and Dombroski both quoted in Philly papers about how increasing Covid cases are eating away at pitching depth around the majors. That could be good news for Luis Gil!

I'm enjoying the hodge podge of talent on the field tonight.
I bet Boone is enjoying managing a team that can steal bases. Florial just swiped second here in 7th, giving DJ a chance with 1 out to drive him in. Running reduces squanders in my opinion. You take bases instead of waiting for something to happen.

We are seeing the Running Yankees as opposed to the Stationary Yankees.

Wow. Stanton pokes a single to right and Florial scores easily. That was the anti-squander. Florial made it happen with a squib single, stolen base and a miracle by Stanton.

I can't blame DJ for not swinging at that strike 3. A little low and a little outside. Good pitch. I don't think he could have done anything with it if he tried.

Good to see Stanton and RO come through.

Getting groundballs, but either not in the right place or not able to complete the play.

It sucks.

Gleyber’s error to start this was so awful. He let a deep grounder play him instead of charging the ball. Probably was thinking about dinner after the game.

I know they are saving the arms for Boston, but mailing in this game by having to use Nelson and Kriske in high leverage is so stupid.

They really miss Loaisiga, but we have seen overworked Chad Green give away a game recently too. If you check the usage chart, you knew we were getting the back end of the pen tonight, still Britton was the one who blew it.

You have to think Allen sticks with the team. Switch hitter, speed, can play all three outfield spots.

If Florial keeps producing ... well, he's probably going to Texas for Gallo or Chicago for Kimbrel.

Man I’d be hesitant to move Florial just because NY really doesn’t have any other CF candidates anywhere close, Dominguez and Pereira at low A and they are 18 and 20. If Cashman wants to (likely) overpay for short-term help, he has tons of shortstops and pitching to parlay with, although Peraza is pretty untouchable for me.

If they trade Florial in a Gallo deal, I will boycott the rest of this irritating season of Neanderthal ball. Just give me a reason, Cashman. On the other hand, New York Neanderthals might sell some merchandise!

I would love Gallo and I’m not saying Florial is off limits but Cashman should deal from his depth if at all possible.
