Anyone Seen Tyler Austin Lately?



I know.

He's fine.

That " swan dive" he took the other day did no damage.

Aaron Boone is simply playing the percentages.  Plus, Neal Walker is having better at bats, recently.

So we are awaiting a left-handed pitcher for Tyler to pick up a bat?

I've seen him in the dugout, and he doesn't look morose.

He is not on any DL.

But he nicked something.  This is an extended period of not playing, for it to be nothing.

I don't hold out any major caution signs here, but if he isn't in the game tomorrow, I will suggest the YANKEES ARE BEING LESS THAN HONEST ABOUT HIS HEALTH.

Today, the Yankees won on Cleveland's errors.  The percentage of balls put in play ( less than half ) by the Yankees spelled; " today is a loss."  STRIKE OUTS AND FOUL-OUTS RULED THE DAY.

Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.

Sorry about the All Caps.

 I am a Swan and my fingers are as wide as your feet.

Barcelona is not Spain. They are Catalan Victory Ladies, and dedicated Communists.

Orwell was there, but he was an anarchist not a communist.

Suggested reading about the Spanish Civil War; " Homage to Catalonia." ( by Orwell ).

Also, you are aware that Orwell is a " nom de plume" right?

His real name is Eric Blair, I think.

Also, only one of the ladies was from Barcelona

From the NY Post -- on Walker at first base:

With the Yankees up by three runs with one out in the top of the sixth, the Indians’ Edwin Encarnacion hit a slow chopper to Neil Walker at first with Jose Ramirez at third. Ramirez didn’t get a good jump, but Walker opted to make the safe play at first instead of trying to get Ramirez at the plate.

“I thought about coming home, but I’d never had that play, so I wanted to make sure I got an out,” said Walker . . .

You had me going,Alphonso. Eric Blair played centerfield for the Cincy Reds. Thank you for the informed commentary! Appreciate your insights.
