Who Wants This Bet?

The Wager :

Giancarlo will strike out in his first at bat, having just returned from a long vacation.
The pitch will be a breaking ball, in the dirt, about 18 inches off the plate.

The Exacta :

Later in the game, when the Yankees need a rally and runs, he will strike out with runners in scoring position.

The Tragedy:

Clint Frazier would have laced that ball into the gap for a double.

Good news is, Stanton will get hurt inside of a month, a season ender, and Frazier will be back. Stanton sees the writing on the wall. Unless they win the WS, Stanton will be reviled. Who needs it? He'll rip a gonad, good and hard. Ellsbury's not a cautionary tale for Stanton (or his agent). Ellsbury's a how-to manual.

Perhaps an off season request for a trade. Maybe one where he adds a few teams to his list. That would be better.

One can only hope Frazier is still a Yankee when the injury occurs.

How can you say that Publius? Just because the Yanks now want to play someone who is constantly injured in the field everyday? Where, of course, he can't play anyway?

What could possibly go wrong?

I don't hate Stanton. I just wish he wasn't on the Yankees.

No problem with Stanton or Frazier once NY signed Gardner for this year it put Frazier as odd man out but next year is a completely different scenario for him. Cashman isn't giving him away for a rental..... not happening.

If you are suggesting that Frazier is better than Stanton, you're nuts. I love Clint, but Stanton is one of the best players in BB. I worry they're going to trade Frazier for some tomato can pitcher.

I would agree, Unknown, except who is this Stanton you write about? I can remember no such individual, although I have heard the rumors, too.

I suspect that he lives somewhere with The Ellsbury, in the Land of the Unicorns.

Solution:

1. Give Stanton back to the Marlins.

2. Pay his entire salary, forever.

3. Refuse to accept anything in return for him.

4. Forget he ever was on the NYY team.

5. If Jeter says no to this, have him (Jeter, that is) shot.

I believer I am aware of a few people who could handle #5 for us.

Hear, hear! (Though if indicted, I will deny any and all knowledge of this "Jeter shooting" plot.)

Often, when players constantly are on the IL, have multiple injuries to different parts of their bodies, it's indicative of juicing. Stanton has been on the IL frequently in his career. I'd almost guarantee he was/still is using. And despite Judge's All-American personna, who knows for sure that he didn't start using in high school? I am not saying that he did but if not, he is is the minority. They both have the physique of, ummm, "body builders".

I agree, Carl. The Stanton and Judge injuries are almost certainly related to PED use and consequent overworking of muscle groups.

Frazier:
SLG/OPS:
.513/.843

Encarnacion:
SLG/OPS:
.531/888

For a basically negligible increase in overall batting performance, the Yankees drop a 24-year-old potential All-Star with speed who potentially can play good defense (good arm, good range), and replace him with a 36-year-old with the same overall offensive profile but no speed and zero potential on defense. THIS IS WHAT'S KNOWN AS GENERAL-MANAGER DOWN'S SYNDROME.

Have you noticed that Boston has built a perennial contender by sticking with and developing young stars (Betts, Bradley Jr., Bogaerts, Benintendi) and DUMPING older underproducing players (Ramirez, Sandoval) rather than DISPLACING the younger stars with the older nonproducers? So instead of dumping older nonproducers like Gardner, they replace their younger stars with other older players.

THIS IS WHY TEAMS LIKE HOUSTON, TAMPA BAY, AND BOSTON have great GMs who understand TEAM BUILDING, and why the Yankees are always in turmoil, because they stick with a bungling nepotism dunce like Cashman (his father was a buddy of George's).

I just got off of my shift at The Pizza Pit. Mommy had a sandwich waiting for me in my basement apartment and I ate it. Then I picked my zits and changed out of my cool orange and red uniform. After I attempted to sooth my onanism, I decided the world should know of the depth of my baseball knowledge. I’m Stat Boy, and the world should pay for me being such a loser!

I’m so happy to testify of the good work of @DrPepokotemple I Suffer from Herpes virus since 2011 and i had frequent symptoms in my private area, after some time it will go away after using acyclovir drugs, then come back after some months. it was disheartening since i have been diagnosed, but after finding @DrPepokotemple and his reviews i was convinced that he will definitely cure me and so i contacted and he told me how to get his medicine and using it for just 14 days and i will go and check up and first i said how can that be possible but i used his herbal medicine after making purchase and truly i used it and went for the test again, and my result came back negative. so i made it a task to share this good testimony in the internet so that those sick can benefit and get cured
