Game 55: Yankees (37-17) vs Padres (27-28)


Good thing he's a Padre or Higy might be out for revenge!!!

When he returns, putting DJ in leadoff would be close to baseball malpractice.

Best part of the Soto trade could well be that the Yankees have Gil in the starting rotation.

Soto, RF -- .309 (178)

Judge, CF -- .280 (191)

Verdugo, LF -- .261 (113)

Stanton, DH -- .240 (126)

Rizzo, 1B -- .250 (104)

Torres, 2B -- .222 (81)

Trevino, C -- .284 (122)

Cabrera, 3B -- .252 (89)

Schmidt, P -- 5-2, 2.59



Arraez, 1B -- .333

Tatis, RF -- .244

Profar, LF -- .328

Cronenworth, 2B -- .265

Machado, 3B -- .234

Peralta, DH -- .273

Merrill, CF -- .276

Kim, SS -- .209

Higashioka, C -- .140

Musgrove, P -- 3-4, 6.14

That's right, the Yankees do NOT play on Memorial Day.

Cabrera can certainly play some fine 3B.

A game like this illustrates why pitcher Wins and Losses should be redefined as an Official Scorer's discretionary selection of the pitcher who did the most to help his team win or cause his team to lose. Here, Gonzalez deserves the L on his record. Conversely, if the Yankees were to mount a massive comeback next inning, Schmidt should get the W, not Tonkin or whoever gets the last out of the 7th.

The way I see it, I think "Quality Starts" is a far more telling stat than wins or losses for a starting pitcher. And the ONLY stat that a starting pitcher can be accurately judged on.

To paraphrase Edward Rutledge in 1776, "Hail Gonzalez. Hail Ferguson. Which lefty stinketh the moooooooooooost?"

honestly i am NOT one to throw in the towel. but i always liked Dandy Don and was happy for the chance to employ his trademark phrase. but i was hoping to execute a reverse psychology strategy on the yanks!!! no such luck((((

Well, you can't win them all, especially when the offense scores 1 run, but the error by Torres and the first-batter walk by Gonzalez are galling. I really feel bad for Schmidt, who does not deserve to lose this game.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
