Game 72: NYY (39-32) vs BRS (36-35)


In a desperate move to ignite their offense, the Yankees are trying a different network tonight.

Initally, DJ & IKF are benched.

Cabrera gets RF.

McKinney has team's highest BA.

Apparently Yankees have not read the memo that BA's are up across the league this year.

"When Sevvy gets back..."

He came into the game with an ERA of 6.48 and hasn't looked great again tonight.

"Once Rizzo gets back..."

We have to be honest, Luis Severino has not looked good.

This is another point about players who get hurt often.

There is this expectation that when they come back, they'll be the player they were. Often times, they simply aren't.

We see this a lot.

The talking point is always, "When ___ comes back, the team will be fine." But ____ is often not the same player.

Severino isn't who he used to be. Not nearly. Might he get it back? Sure. But, it's just as likely that this is the best he'll be going forward.

Injured players get injured. It's an old football truism that fits any sport.

I suspect you haven't found that offense.

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."
