    Atlanta Braves @ NY Yankees Aug 11-12

    The Yankees will host the Atlanta Braves in the first of a brief two-game interleague series Tuesday evening from Yankee Stadium. The Braves will send 24-year old right-hander Touki Toussaint to the hill, and the Yankees will counter with Monty. This marks the first series between these clubs since 2018.

    The Braves will have Touki Toussaint on the hill for the fourth time of the season in this clash. Toussaint has pitched well in his last two outings after he was crushed in his season-opening start. The young right-hander tossed four scoreless innings against the Mets followed by a six-inning outing that saw him allow only three runs against the Blue Jays. He still owns a 6.08 ERA but has posted a strong 1.20 WHIP in his 13.1 innings of work on the season. Toussaint is facing the Yankees for the first time of his young career in this one.

    Yankees say Jordan Montgomery is expected to pitch Tuesday's game against the Braves. Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled for Wednesday. Happ is out.

    The Yankees are stumbling after they stood at 8-1 at one point. They will look to regroup in this series after they lost three of four in Tampa this past weekend.

    Tue, Aug 11 • 7:05 PM EDT
    At Yankee Stadium
    TV: YES, FSSO

    Touki Toussaint
    RHP
    0-0, 6.08 ERA, 20 SO
    Toussaint's curveball was working as he recorded a career-high nine strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Thursday. The right-hander will attempt to build on that career-best start as he fills the rotation spot of Mike Foltynewicz, who was designated for assignment on July 28.

    Jordan Montgomery
    LHP
    1-1, 5.59 ERA, 6 SO
    Montgomery was strong in his first start of the year, holding the Red Sox to a run over 5 2/3 innings, but he struggled last time out against the Phillies. Montgomery battled with an inconsistent changeup and said he didn’t have his curveball as the Phils knocked him for five runs and six hits over four innings.

    Wed, Aug 12 • 7:05 PM EDT
    At Yankee Stadium
    TV: FSSE, YES

    TBD

    Masahiro Tanaka
    RHP
    0-0, 1.17 ERA, 8 SO
    Tanaka is coming off five sharp innings of one-hit ball against the Rays, in which he struck out five without issuing a walk. He said that his slider was much better than in his season debut. Tanaka continues to build stamina after sustaining a concussion on July 4 and should be clear to throw 75 to 80 pitches in this start.

    Hope to see a better performance out of Monty.

    No. he will wait till he's thrown 36 in an inning and given up 9 runs to pull him this time.

    Imagine the deal we could get if we packaged DJ and Judge*....we could probably off-load Gleyber and Gary in the process...

    Someone should start a thread.

    We’re pointing out that these statistics breed false narratives, and we value the truth. This isn’t about replacing old numbers with new numbers, or attempting to dissuade anyone from enjoying the aesthetics of the game. It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron

    Boone said he was trying to give Judge rest. Even the NY Post had an article asking where Judge was.

    I think they are hiding an injury. Hell, Boone is BSing and says he needs some rest, load management BS. Total bullspit!

    Hey Boone, the Yankees didn’t play Monday and do not play on Thur. Try again pal.....

    So this new pitching coach is sure is doing wonders Day.

    Larry got blamed for Happ and Sunny Gray.


    Who is to blame now Day?

    The staff ERA and the staff ERA+ are both near the bottom.

    How about you either have stuff to get batters out or you don’t. Getting this new pitching coach has done nothing for the staff.

    Larry got a raw deal.

    Hell, even Cole’s games are less impressive in 2020 than in 2018 and 2019.

    But Larry is to blame.

    Gotcha!

    How hot is Charlie Blackman?

    17-23 hot!

    I can’t remember a hot streak like that!

    .739 is insane for 23 at bats.

    And I know, he will go 2-21 at some point but that is a hot streak.

    How did Dylan Bundy fall through the cracks?

    He leaves Baltimore and is now the new Gerit Cole.

    Dude is dominating in every game! I mean complete domination of every opposing team so far!

    Way to go Cashbox!

    We could have had any Bundy in the rotation instead of Happ!

    Hindsight is always 20/20 Nick. We could have had Trout if he fell a few picks in the draft. After the compensatory pick for not signing Gerrit Cole the year before, the Yankees were to pick 29th in the first round. After extending qualifying offers to Mark Teixeira and Francisco Rodriguez and losing them in free agency, the Angels had the 24th and 25th picks. Angels took Trout with the 25th pick. Four picks later, the Yankees took a high school outfielder from Texas, Slade Heathcott. The rest is history.
