Quick Hit: They Didn't

The Yankees had the bases loaded with 0 outs in a 1-run game, but didn't bring home anybody. Yankees lose 9-3.

Yankees got exposed in Boston.... let's see right now we have Rizzo hurt, Trevino can't throw, Torres can't hit (he needs a change of scenery), DJ is aging right before our eyes and is a liability at the plate. The starting pitching is hit or miss and the BP is showing wear and tear and needs help. The hot start will keep the Yankees in the hunt, but you have to wonder if this team can get to the finish line and go deep in the playoffs. Other than Soto, Judge, Verdugo and Volpe the offense is anemic. It might be too early to panic but things didn't look good in Boston.

because of lax and sloppy, uninspired play the last 2 games. the Yankees have come to what feels like the first crossroads of the season. if we play like yesterday and today in the next 3 games, i will not say the season is over, but I think it would feel AWFULLY similar to 2022 and there would be an overwhelming sense of OH BOY here we go again.


either FO would have to step in immediately with meaningful changes OR the players would really need to dig deep, figure out what has changed, and turn it around. I want to believe they could get the mojo back, but after the last 2 seasons, the ghosts are quite ferocious. …

The latest on Anthony Rizzo is that he suffered a right lower-arm injury. He will see the team doctors and undergo imaging to determine the severity of the injury in New York on Monday. Hopefully, he will be okay. If he does go on the IL, I am hoping we can at least get a look at TJ Rumfield and Ben Rice and see what they can do while we are waiting for Rizzo to get better....instead of just shifting DJ over there.

I've no problem with bringing prospects up and giving them playing time


I question whether it's for the best to have a call-up immediately play against the best of the opposition.

can't tell from the outside,

but it seems reasonable to assume that people already in the majors and already on the team are likely to be better informed as to what is required to prevail in tough games.

The only thing I take away from this game is: Does Rizzo need to go on the IL, and if so, who gets the call, Rumfield or Rice? Oh, I'm jettisoning either Andrews or Cousins if I need room on the 40.

Agustin Ramirez, the AA catcher at Somerset is red hot right now. He hit THREE homers yesterday. He leads the AA Eastern League with 15 long balls in 49 games. I wouldn't mind skipping him right over AAA and having him platoon with Wells, Ramirez in against lefty pitchers and Wells against righty pitchers. Either that or give Narvaez, the AAA catcher a try. And yes, Rumfield or Rice at 1B if Rizzo is not okay.

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."
