I suspect the acquisition of the lefty betters means the Yanks see more lefty starters, which would be to the benefit of Stanton.

I think Stanton’s back is up against the wall. I think he may play like a player in a contract year. I expect him to bear down at the plate, and hustle on the bases, and at least try to play like a $32 million dollar a year player. If he does not, he should be benched. The big question is whether Boone has the backbone to bench him.

Depends on who he has to DH instead of him. Last year all of the alternatives were just as bad or worse.

I still think Florial should play over Verdugo and Grisham

Based on watching every at bat of his for the last 2 years. This kid has finally learned to hit. He has tremendous power, great speed, good glove.


Last season, he was hitting .310 with high walks, and many home runs, doubles, and triples

Was going for a 30/30 year in only about 110 games!...but then he suffered an injury and his average dipped to .280 or so. Still had great OPS.


He just needs the chance to show what he can do.

If Stanton still has trouble with sliders, I would only play him against LHP.


To me, the keys for a bounce back for Stanton include:

1) He needs to go back to his open stance that he had with Miami

2) He needs to get over his apparent fear of being hit.


I would love to see him visit Judge's hitting instructor to get over his bad habits.


I would also love to see him do much more stretching...perhaps even using yoga.

Because of all the free agents George loved to collect, yes Willie McGee for Bob Sykes was bad, but it came down to protecting this kid 1B, who was behind Steve Balboni in the system or McGee. That kid 1B? None other than Donald Arthur Mattingly.


EJ, really, you don't know who Jay Buhner was? Also, his minor league teammate and CF was Roberto Kelly.


Because of the Yanks/O's 13 player trade only 3 years earlier, that's why guys like Dempsey were at My Captain's funeral on August 6, 1979.


Gotta agree that the Stanton deal, clearly is the worst trade of Brian Cashman's tenure as GM, also for the same reasons, not only did he only make it healthy…

Yup, they had 6 outfielders but by August they had Shane Robinson and Neil Walker playing RF. Hal waited until the absolute last minute until signing McCutcheon off the waiver wire,

"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."
