So now I am concerned that Austin and Judge are done. Last game, 0-4 and 0-5. Judge struck out twice and Austin once.
Well, you say," first road trip; first west coast swing; they aren't going to hit .500. No 7 days and 7 home runs."
I have a bad feeling that neither of them is going to see a fastball for a while. That's what killed my major league aspirations...couldn't hit this breaking balls. Never really saw a worthy knuckleball.
" It's only one damn game, " you say again. They will hit today."
"Austin tagged one last night, but right at somebody. Right at the wall."
I know. But just as that broken bat blooper appears as a hit in the box score the next day, so does the rocket shot appear as an out.
Everyone on the Yankees was going yard, last night, off Weaver. Not Judge. Not Austin.
And then there is Mr. Sanchez.
Strength up the middle is a formula for long term success. Now we need a centerfielder who can rake and a few more Tanakas.
Why are they not bring up Gampel? Is that his name? The guy who always hits .300 and the Yankees ignore? Not to mention the elephant in the room ( Refsnyder).
