Meaningless Stuff...

 I just want to go on record with this:  Jay Bruce should be retired from baseball.

And the question now surfaces: with Odor at second and DJ at first, is Voit now a back-up?  

Seriously, we know that DJ is the best option we have at first.  He is so good, that he reduces errors from Torres and everyone else. 

Also, with DJ's long-term contract, he can probably play it out productively at first base. Not so likely at second.  It makes a lot of sense to commit to DJ as our "first choice " first baseman. 

The infield, in theory, becomes hugely upgraded, assuming Odor is a good second baseman...a huge fairy tale idea.  Is there any "book" on this guy, other than he once hit 30 HRs somewhere and no one wanted him, despite that production?

One of these days, right after Michael Kay mentions how : " great " the Yankees bullpen has been, it will give up an 8 run lead to the Orioles.

Every time I hear the phrase, " okay, everyone please line-up for your shots..."  I keep thinking I have walked into my dream bar.

Totally agree, Dauntless Leader.

And even though The Gleyber is now on a 0 HR, 18 RBI pace for the season, are we really going to keep pretending he is the shortstop of the future?

Shaggy Breeches seems like a typical Brain digression, designed to show us mostly what a brain he is.

Yeah, getting Jay Bruce was a mistake. Is he any better than Mike Ford? Ford is the same type hitter, with probably a better glove at 1B. And even though Gardner has played well so far (with the exception of the base running blunder in Tampa that almost cost us that sole win), is he really the better option than Estevan Florial? Is it really necessary to send down Tyler Wade? They're erring on the side of keeping older players. I think it will turn out to be another big mistake.

Miracle upon miracles:

Goober Hicks is NOT in the lineup tonight!

Stanton and Judge hitting back to back! No one on this blog has ever thought of this idea!

Did the Yankees hire a real manager?!?!?!?

Oh, and while I’m on the subject, shame on you Alphonso! ( I cleaned that sentiment up a great deal)



You should be drawn and quartered for saying so.

Or be forced to wear a Pirates cap for the rest of the season!

And there are a great many more words - unprintable words - I would like to use for such treason. But this being a family-friendly site, I will refrain.

Dick!? C'mon! Pirates cap!? That's harsh.

I'm sure our Dauntless Leader will take such criticism in the spirit in which it is intended!
