    Good idea. Media can easily jump to conclusions that may have no basis in reality. I agree the appearance isn't pretty, but who knows the whole story? Clearly he's not a happy camper, nor would I expect him to be. I want a player that is pissed went sent down. I also want a player once there will play his butt off to get back to bigs. Imo Frazier is both.

    The starting rotation being ranked so high is what has be baffled. German was great till his last 4 starts where it looked like he was wearing down. Happ and CC have been serviceable. Paxton has been great at times but hasn't looked the same since his knee Injury. Tanaka has had some very good starts, his last 1 was brilliant but as if his sitter is flat hes struggled. That said hes been our best starter and is absolutely a big game stud.
    Were still missing Sevy who healthy is the best pitcher we could hope to add but he hasn't pitched so they cant count on him in their rankings.

    Imo were at least one solid starter, and healthy returns from Sevy and Betances from having a top5 staff maybe top 3.

    Are we all missing something and being over concerned about our pitching or do we need to get some of what ESPN is smoking
    Pass the pipe!

    Imo Yanks are clearly one quality arm away. I also believe if Happ and particularly Paxton play up to
    potential team is much improved. However still one solid arm from the promised land.

    No offense, but Clint’s numbers are a little bit better than Tauch’s...

    And in reality Clint didn’t DESERVE to be sent down with regarding his offensive stats....big stars made him go away....

    His attitude is terrible at times but he is just confident and the media also makes more of a story than what it really was....

Loving it all.
    You just mention the HR’s

    The string of hits was the main reason why we won the game....the homer happy Yankees beat the shift with timely hits that were well positioned to garner success.

    Unless Sevy comes back healthy and with our training staff I wouldn't be surprised by at least 1 delay/ setback. I think we absolutely need 1 starter stat and depending on how Betances and Sevy look when they start there rehab we could probably use 2 starters and an reliever. The BP arm doesn't need to be the best on the market like Hand and others being mentioned but they need to be better than Holder, Cessa, Harvey,and Cortez which shouldn't be hard.

    I thought of Mike Minor as a 2nd starter/ reliever since he very capable of excelling in both roles
    Btw did u see Gs interview when he was talking about his rehab process. He was not a happy boy when talking about the misdiagnosis of the bicep tear vs the shoulder issue wasn't the main problem. It was the first time I've seen him not look like he was absolutely thrilled to be here

    20 players on the IL since the beginning of the yr is ludacris and someone needs to be held accountable. What's worse and directly shows how incompetent is all the misdiagnosis that lead to the wrong treatments and the huge amount of setbacks weve had

    If the players don't believe the training staff can help keep them healthy or help them heal quickly it's going to cause problems. Players will start seeking 2nd opinions outside the team and going home to have their own guys help them rehab

    If they don't make some serious changes I could see us hurt our chances in FA, especially with pitchers. Because pitching is so hard on the body pitchers spend the most time of any players with the training staff. If a FA has serious concerns that the training staff cant help them stay healthy or get them healthy quickly when they get hurt it could give them a great deal of pause if they should sign here

    I still believe we have fragile type players....you really think Cashman hired a bunch of bubble gum chewing kids working at La Fitness to be in charge of the New York Yankees training staff? Money was spent wisely in the training department...I bet if you research more closely that we have the best one out there....

    Bad luck and fragile players are the root cause, not the training staff!

    So u actually think that we have 20 fragile players and the training staff hold no responsibility for the misdiagnosis, the setbacks and delays?

    U might be right that the spent a lot of money on the training staff but that hardly means that their good.
    If nothing else they need to make a changes to reinstall some confidence with the players and ensure them that keeping them healthy and can competently rehab them in a timely manner if they do get Injured

    It was quite clear listening to G talk about his injury/rehab how frustrated he has been with the whole process with the training staff

    MLB Best Division Record

    Astros 21-6 .778
    Yankees 21-7 .750
    Twins 16-7 .696

    The Yanks are 6 games ahead of the Rays here. Could that end up being the difference in the AL East race?

    Contenders vs AL East
    Yankees 21-7 .750
    Rays 15-13 .536
    Red Sox 16-14 .533

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    - MM

    And now he is having discomfort in his shoulder?

    WHAT THE ****

    Hal would have no problem surpassing $246 million...

    So enough with the EE move blocking a potential future trade....

    Another fragile pitcher...

    He probably was compensating a little and the shoulder blew out!

    Won’t see him anymore!

    I can name over 100 pitchers who had bum shoulders and never return...

    Another set back to a pitcher. That should about end any chance we had of getting Monty back this yr

    This is why I'm very concerned something like this is gonna happen to Sevy and effectively end his season also

    Who knows when we'll see German back

    The Yanks better get at a minimum of two pitchers. One starter and another good reliever, even better 2 starters and a reliever as well. I think were going to have to beef up the pen because I don't think were going to getting a lot of length from the starters we currently have and can't burnout the pen before the playoffs. Plus we need to hope Betances comes back.

    They have to do something about that medical staff. Way to many injuries, set backs and misses diagnosis. If I was a player on that team and got hurt I sure wouldn't feel confident or want that staff handling me rehab

    Not so sure it's the medical staff per se. Chris Ahmad the team physician, is considered one of the best in the field. He mentored under Frank Jobe, the pioneer of TJ surgery. Ahmad was selected for the sports-medicine fellowship at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic. Although is it possible he is the one responsible for the missed or mis-diagnosed Sevy, Stanton, Judge injuries?

    The training staff may also be considered suspect. Regardless who is responsible, clearly there have been an inordinate number of injuries.
