Sunday Readers' Thread

SSTN Admin

January 28, 2024

***

Sundays at 10:00 is the time for our readers thread... The readers take the lead rather than the writers (and eventually, many also all join in).


Here's this week's topic:


More and more, slowly, but surely, optimism is creeping in regarding Giancarlo Stanton and his 2024 season.


What do you think?


Will Giancarlo Stanton have a good year? Will he bounce back? Can Stanton hit .230? Can he hit .250? Can he once again blast 35, or more, homers?


What will 2024 look like for Giancarlo Stanton?

I foresee another year of exactly the same. A hot week or two, but ultimately a low .200’s batting average. Maybe 15 homers on good guesses and another lower leg injury leading to a lengthy IL stint.

I think Stanton starts the season going gangbusters, ripping like ten home runs in the first twenty games or something like that. He then settles in for a 25-30 HR season, with a .250 batting average. It kinda has a feel like Teixeira's and Arod's 2015 season.

ANOTHER FACTOR TO CONSIDER......What If The Yankees Sign Cody Bellinger?: The Chase Carter Factor: Can Giancarlo Stanton and Cody Bellinger co-exist if they become teammates? Or would the situation become awkward? Giancarlo Stanton's ex-girlfriend is model Chase Carter. They were very close for several years. Chase Carter often attended Yankee games with Samantha Bracksieck, Aaron Judge's girlfriend (now his wife), to see Stanton play. However, according to some reports, Giancarlo Stanton's relationship with Chase Carter ended after the Yankees slugger "liked" a couple of Instagram posts from UFC ring star Arianny Celeste. Chase Carter moved on, and not long after, she began a new relationship with Cody Bellinger, then with the Dodgers. In 2021, Bellinger and Carter h…

Thanks. It's a valid consideration since "team chemistry" is such an important factor in the success of a ballclub, and this has the potential of creating an awkward situation that could affect "team chemistry".

Stanton can no longer keep declining and count on having his name in the lineup for a whole bunch of reasons, his salary no longer his protective shield to his spot in the lineup. 2024 is really put up time for him.


Judge in CF for at least the first half or 2024 is the fist road bump he will have to negotiate. Judge in CF means Judge gets one game a week at DH. Then, the offshoot of that is Trent Grisham. If Grisham plays well when his has his opportunities in April/May, because of the Yankees prioritizing defense, they will proceed to put his name in the lineup more, which means that Soto might very well get mo…

What did Peraza, Cabrera & Judge tell the Yankees that they needed to “listen” to?? I’m confused.


I don’t see Cabrera getting virtually any outfield play, barring a major injury. He’s a decent fielder (no doubt), but the outfield is much more crowded than the infield. I can see him getting a spot start at 2B/SS/3B war more frequently than in right.

Here's a positive statement. He's better than Aaron Hicks.

And now.....The Angels signed Aaron Hicks to replace Shohei Ohtani. Hicks can't pitch, but neither can Ohtani right now.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

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."
