Year of the Collapse, report from the Dept. of Irony

 The Seattle Mariners have an ex-Yankee 2B who was jogging out grounders. 

(Manager Scott) Servais also said that second baseman Shed Long was replaced in the sixth inning by Dylan Moore when he did not run hard on a grounder. Long reached via an error by Leury Garcia.

“We have a standard that we are going to run hard all the time,’’ Servais said. “I didn’t think he really bused it so we just made a little adjustment. That’s how we play.’’

Are the juju gods toying with us?

Thanks to Buhner's Ghost.

For further irony:

1. We all know the Yankees have a RH-hitting-dominant line-up. In fact, it's waaaaay overboard.

2. Brett Gardner is one of our LH hitters. He plays a lot, much to the regret of almost everyone who visits this site. His slash is .195/.301/.299. NOT A TYPO.

3. Versus RHP, Gardner is hitting .211. I kid you knot. That will put the fear of god into managers across . . . Little League?

4. Yet: The NYY record so far vs. LHP is 12wins, 14losses. I double kid you not.

I'm afraid in #3 above, I typed "kid you knot."

It's possible that was the knot that 2021 NYY season has permanently placed in my stomach . . . speaking for itself

Deberian cambiar al dirigente traer alguien agresivo ,deberian cambiar a Andujar,a frizer y a Torres si no vamos rumbo al frio sotano junto a los orioles.

Roansy Contreras (who we traded away for Taillon) is really doing well in AA with the Pirates:

8 GS, 45 IP, 29 H, 10 ER, 9 BB, 64 K

That's a 2.80 ERA, 0.844 WHIP, and 12.8 K/9. FanGraphs just bumped him up to no. 104 in their MLB Top Prospects lists.

This was just the most cursed offseason. Everything Cashman did turned to dust.

Everybody but Hal knows that Cashman is the dumbest GM in baseball.

And that Hal is the most anemic owner!

I'm on call the next 6 days and I find I have no stomach for this pathos and patheticness.

According to Google Translate, Unknown's comment above translates into "They should change to the leader bring someone aggressive, they should change to Andujar, to Frizer and Torres if we are not going to the cold Sotano next to the Orioles."

I don't know what he meant, but I tend to agree.

Stanton has just 6 XBH in 100 PA since coming off the IL. Seems less than ideal for a cleanup hitter.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Yankees had a manager like that?

Gardner is starting in centerfield tonight against a LHP. Gardner's 2020 slash line against lefties is


Either Judge is too fragile physically to start in centerfied--after all, it's so HOT out there--or Cashman and Boone are insane.
