Well, evidently it did happen, because he seemed to turn a corner and they allowed him to pitch in winter ball and they continued to monitor him and now he is in fact pitching for the team with an equal chance of making the roster.

    While it is Britton's prerogative to give an opinion and he did not say anything wrong, he also could have said that his focus is the work he has to do on the field to get ready for the season and anything concerning another player should be discussed with that player and the Yankees organization. That's probably how Derek Jeter would have handled it.
    i think they're more worried about his tweet than they are about any future domestic abuse cases. Either way if he has an identical season or better than his rookie year trade him immediately. I would find it incredibly hard to believe we couldn't get a huge haul for him.

    If he canít concentrate on baseball he only has himself to blame . Either way for this season he and the Yankees will be scrutinized by the media

    My concern is not with that issue. He was disciplined for the situation and it was severe. My issue is his brain.

    I throw this out to Doc as well, based on his behavior via social media, I have to wonder if he's bipolar and untreated. He makes these dramatic posts that reek of doom and then a couple days later, retracts and says, all is sunny.
    If he gets his head on straight, I think his basement is a solid mid rotation guy.

    Hopefully he gets his brain into shape and returns to this form

    Not sure but I am fairly certain he was shredding Garcia as a bust after the Tampa game. Now he's singing his praises.

    Agree. Makes one wonder why Britton, the player rep, would make such a public statement. He must realize his words have consequences.

    He has had irrational moments, your concern is legit.

    If you watch German on the mound, you'd never believe he has any outside issues. Perhaps, it is on the mound that he finds his inner sanctum. Plus, as his floor, he could be a great long man. On the mound, his calmnest reminds me of Ramiro Mendoza, who was an integral part of Yankees Championships in the distant past. Ramiro was the long man and he could hold the opposition to no runs or one run for multiple innings, while the Yankees bats came back, often picking up the middle innings wins.

    It's obviously a minute sample size and he could be fairly normal kid but those moments remind me of people I know who have some serous issues.

    At the very least I question his impulse control.

    I guess they don't want to listen to you any more than we do.

    Sometimes a headache can be hard to get rid of. Get my drift?

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

    That's what Michael Jordan always said. He was most at peace during the game when he could put everything else out of his mind.
