The Scranton Gift...


 We got lucky last night. 

 Mostly, because three Scranton players delivered, in the same game.

1.  Sears - even though he needed 50 pitches in his first two innings, he found a rhythm to give the Yankees 85 pitches and no runs, through five innings.  He notched his second win at the major league level for 2022 ( one in relief ) , whereas Montgomery ( absent any team support at all, ever ) has none. 

2.  The Maraschino Cherry relieved for two innings of no runs, even though he didn't throw a single strike. 

3.  Miguel Andujar played a fine left field ( never thought I would say that ), and looks like a dangerous hitter again.  His bat scored our only earned run. Please take note;  the team scored one earned run. Again. All the big names struck out. 

I would give Andujar the left field job right now, and relegate Gallo to D, and then gardener ( possibly their barber ). 

Boone, of course, won't do that.  He has to respect the big names and the big contracts, even when they are awful ( see Hicks ). 

You'll see Andujar on the bench or DHing today.

And we'll have to listen to more sugary palaver about his stupid reasoning.

Is that the hand of Django Reinhardt?

The Yankees announced they’ve signed veteran infielder Matt Carpenter to a big league deal. The three-time All-Star had been granted his release from the Rangers a week ago.

Another retread...

Who's coming off the 40-man roster?

JM said...

Why? Don't we have too many infielders already?

Dumb fucking organization.

we love making deals with T E X A S

DickAllen said...


An act of desperation - shows you how poor the farm system is.

DickAllen said...


Who is Keninson Diaz?!?!?

Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside said...

Who is Matt Carpenter?

ranger_lp said...

And..

Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:

•Signed LHP Manny Bañuelos (#68) to a Major League contract and selected him to the 26-man roster from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

I believe we had a spot opened by DFA-ing Rob Brantley.

Matt Carpenter was an excellent 3B/1B option for the Cardinals for many years. Could also play LF/RF. At 36, coming off a poor season last year, who knows what he has left. Probably will be used if/when Donaldson or Rizzo go down with injuries. The move didn’t cost us anything so no harm, no foul.

@ Above Average....You might say Texas likes to pull the trigger (with the Yankees).

DickAllen said...


The Intern has been shopping at goodwill again

ranger_lp said...

And, and..

Yankees signed Shane Greene to a minor league contract...assigned to AAA SWB...

JM said...

Come back, Shane.

We have a killer B.

Mildred Lopez said...

That thumb...umm, rhymes with Delores?

HoraceClarke66 said...

Noticed while watching a Mets inning that Thairo Estrada is having a decent year in SF. And Tyler Wade in LA.

Glad we got NOTHING, zero, nada, for two guys at positions where we are desperately short.

Kevin said...

Dick Allen, gotta love you getting Django Reinhardt into a baseball blog, but I think that was Mordecai Brown's hand. 🙄

Alphonso said...

Is Manny Banuelos under 40?

How did he pitch in Japan and, subsequently, in Holland?

Probably better than El Chappy anyway.
