Meltdown

For six innings, the newly revamped, 2016 Yankees were alive and kicking...

Eight Toronto runs in the eighth. I'm going to bed.

Aside from Ty Clippard, we had no bullpen. 12-6, after being up 6-0 after five...with Pineda doing great, but pulled after a 42 minute rain delay. Warren was terrible tonight, but Shreve might have been worse.

Here's my question. Why didn't Joe send Pineda back out after the rain delay? Is that just an automatic thing that managers do now? I think I remember a time when guys just kept warm by throwing in a special area under the stands somewhere. 42 minutes isn't very long. Pineda couldn't have tossed for a while, sat down, then tossed a bit more to keep his arm loose?

Why are pitchers all treated like they're some kind of porcelain dolls who will break into a million pieces if they face anything even slightly out of their routine?

Man up, America. It's time to make baseball great again.

Tough luck about Eovaldi. Just too many vowels to stay healthy.

Why do we still have Anthony Swarzak on the major league roster? Or rather, why did we have him in the first place?

So many questions....

RIGHT ON THE BUTTON JOHN M....... IT'S JUST SOMETHING ALL MANAGERS DO NOW BECAUSE THEY'RE HORRIFIED OF BEING SECOND GUESSED, IF THE PITCHER COMES BACK IN THE GAME AND EITHER GETS BOMBED, OR HURT......I CAN'T STAND THE "BABYING" OF ALL THE PLAYERS IN TODAY'S GAME..... MAN UP IS RIGHT!!!...... AND IF WE DON'T CUT THAT MISERABLE ANTHONY SWARZAK, AND CHASEN SHREVE, I'M GONNA PULL MY HAIR OUTTA MY HEAD!

WHEN THE FUCKING TWINS RELEASE YOU, YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PICK HIM UP!!!... CASHMAN FELT COMPELLED TO GRAB HIM.....THE THING THAT KILLS ME IS I WAS FOLLOWING HIS APPEARANCES IN SCRANTON, AND HE WAS NOT DOING THAT WELL!!..... BUT, OF COURSE, BECAUSE HE HAS "MAJOR LEAGUE EXPERIENCE" (THAT WE RIDICULOUSLY OVER-VALUE ONCE A GUY IS WASHED UP), WE CALLED HIM UP..... AND HE KILLED US. GUYS LIKE HIM ARE SUBTRACTION BY ADDITION....THE MINUTE THEY GET ON THE BIG TEAM, IT'S LIKE A TICKING TIME BOMB....THE BOMB WENT OFF WITH SWARZAK TONIGHT.

I am so sick of Girardi and his stupid "assigned innings for relievers" crap. we needed our best reliever in the 8th. why wasn't Betances brought in? Why not use your best during the most critical point of the game? Insanity, pure and simple.

ANONYMOUS,
The Twins let David Arias, um Ortiz, go once. Hey, ya never know, maybe Hicks will have a bigger head next year.
