    The Anals crew must be telling Boone that the % like Nelson starting. More pitching decisions from Boone that make zero sense, Shocking
    It makes zero sense , king is a starter he should start this game and then use Nelson . And it was The anals crew made this pitching not Boone , Boone just takes orders from them.

    I tend to agree. Nelson as the opener with King for hopefully 5-6. The longer he can go the better.

    That’s what happens when you have one of your most mediocre relievers opening a bullpen game ...

    Who is the idiot that came up with the idea of the Yanks using an "opener"?

    If king can go 5 plus innings why not just start him and then use Nelson for 2 innings ?

    That idiot would be Brian cashman . He saw Tampa do it he thought he could too . He just forgot that the pitchers he used in those games weren’t very good

    I don't disagree.

    I was simply agreeing that Nelson would open and King for 5-6 .

    The idiot whos idea it was, would be the anals crew and Boone. Cashman doesn't make the everyday decisions like that.

    It was a very, very stupid decision, like we'd should be surprised that one of Boones pitching ideas didn't work out... Nelson has been a decent reliever this yr, why would you take him out of that role to start for 1 inning. King has always been a starter, why not just let him start then let Nelson take over for him??? stupid, stupid stupid ... they are going to over think themselves into a very under performing season

    You Really think cashman has nothing to do with Every day decisions ???? Where were you in game 2 last year ? Everyone knows that was cashman . And who do you think runs the anals department ? Cashman doesn’t just sit in his office making trades and talking to the people above him . He also has major input in everyday decisions too . Cashman likely doesn’t have alot to do with decisions during the game that I agree with but when it comes to decisions like today’s starter and the lineups , you sure as heck better believe he has input on those. Let me ask you this , why did arod rip cashman directly for game 2 last season ? Why didn’t he just rip Boone ? And yes I believe he knows how cashman and the Yankees front office works because he was with the Yankees for over 10 years .

    One thing that has to be done is making hicks the 4th outfielder behind Gardner in cf . Enough of him . And Stanton should be batting low in the lineup, and also get rid of Bruce and odor . Neither of them are helping either

    All or nothing offense.

    The problem was the kids came out of the minors smoking and now they got a taste of big league life and are turning into fat cats.

    Send them packing!

    Retool and reshuffle this damn roster....it is not a good mix for Oct baseball anyway and with the way they are going they might be buried by May!
