Paul Another nice outfield play by Soto. Gee the guy can actually catch and throw the ball. Soto is a 5 tool player and all these know it alls that say he should only DH well enough said. I am glad he is a Yankee Still concerned about the starting pitching. Two games and haven’t gotten 5 innings. Still early and hope the starters get going. 2 and 0 against The Astro’s at Minute Maid Park be still my heart

Yes.

The nonsense about his poor defense is so so so tiring and played out. There are a host of great outfielders who weren't superstars on defense. The insinuation that he doesn't work at defense, or didn't, and that he'll get better now because of Judge is also a bunch of nonsense, but I'm done arguing that point. The Yankees should be thrilled to have this 25-year-old superstar and if they don't lock him up at the end of the season, it'll be a huge mistake.

The starters need to gain length, but, as you stated, we're only two games in. And 2-0! :)

MLB doesn't care about anything except the greenbacks. I visit the MLB site, and too many times they want me to take a survey, But, nothing ever changes. For over a decade, I've sent them (MLB) emails about where to find a new version of certain ringtone that I paid for in 2008, but was so bad in quality, that when I upgraded my phone in 2010, bye bye ringtone. Yes been asking from 2010-2023, and at some point this year, I'll ask again, band I'll get their very nice automated reply, but no real follow up. Oh, the ringtone.. "it's a deep fly ball, Yasztremski back, it's a homerun...'. Yes Paul, from our childhood. Oh Gator's ERA …

I get your point, and understand the stand you've taken Paul. But, in fairness or in reality, it really doesn't matter who the manager is, the rules will still be the same, whether it's Boone, Duncan, Ausmus, you or me, 98% of the decisions will be the same. Why? Because if we don't follow the rules that were set, we won't have the job anymore. My opinion: Managers today, are paid not to manage, but to carry out the gameplan, and to take the heat if things don't work out. It's not just on the Yankees either.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

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."
