Three Things....


.....I never want to hear again:

1.  "RHP Darren O'Day will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday."

2.  "Justine Wilson threw a light bullpen session Sunday."

3.  " Luis Severino played catch for the second day in a row. "

I don't care if Boone says these guys " are doing really well."  

I don't want to see thing 1 or thing 2 in the Bronx.  Ever.

Thing 3 should simply "disappear" until next year. 

 He can show up in spring training and compete with all the other 30 year old things. 

Maybe under a new name.

Jacoby Ellsbury will resume baseball activities next week. He will cash his last paycheck.

His contract expires next week? Wow, that 8 years went by quickly and painfully.

This was his buyout year. $5,000,000. I read somewhere that he was the highest paid mlb player last year, because the Yankees tried to void his contract and the court said to pay him. That made him exempt from the agreement for prorating EVERYBODY else's salary in mlb.

He must have made a deal with mephastophilis.

I would have taken any *one* of those paychecks to appear to be approaching, possibly, in some manner, starting to consider, baseball activities.

...and don't think the bean counters didn't equate Cole's salary to Ironman Ellsbury's coming off the book.

They count beans.

That's what they do.

True Rufus, so true. It's why they're called that.

Isn't about time to start negotiations with Severino to keep him a Yankee until he is about 38?
He's really throwing well off a flat surface and he will long toss 180 feet starting next Weds.
He will face live hitters in 20 days.

Actually to increase hitting, MLB is considering flattening the mound and moving it to 180 feet. So he's just getting ahead of the curve.

What if the pitchers mound becomes the anti-mound?

Sunk 8-12 inches into the ground, making 6'7" pitchers about 5'9"?

Deivi would become 4'3" and likely more effective.

Another innovation brought to you by ...Jeep.

The pitching pit. I like it.

Or, if we keep the mound, we could remarket it for a more upscale audience and call it the "pitching hillock." Hits would always be "well struck." Balls and strikes would become "testicles" and "befuddlers." Errors in the field would be "whoopsies."

I think Sterling would have a lot of fun with all that.

I like the idea of the pitching pit as well. Devi would need a periscope to see the plate. Then again he could develop into a submarine pitcher.

They should also turn the base paths into slip and slides.
