    ps. to earlier post, also miss Ken Singleton. Consummate pro. A bit too focused on hitting at times, but knows the game and an easy listen. Imo articulated a players POV better than most. Easy on the ears.

    then he called nestor cortes nestor the molestor.. we do not need good ole boys like jim in the game how is he still employed for making such comments?
    "We all make mistakes and feel 100% there was no malice intended," Cortes wrote. "I plan on lifting him up with this tweet and hope others do too. No sweat here Jim!"

    I wonder what July will bring?


    I will say this, if they keep him and Gallo goes on a streak that gets him to the numbers on the back of his baseball card, The Yankees will win the WS

    He would have to hit 250/400/500/900 with 25 HR and a reduced K rate, to get there. If he did?
    Good grief
    He's been batting 160 since he got here, so this is an unlikely scenario. His hrs and doubles are a little down from then but he's essentially the same player. Honestly, his career is likely over. Guys who hit .180-200 every year aren't supposed to have long careers. That just doesn't happen. This is his walk year. He'll be lucky to get a minor league contract from a team.

    Here's an interesting comparison

    2019 Chris Davis K%: 39.5% BA: .179 OBP: 276 SLG: .325 (last full season)
    2022 Joey Gallo K%: 39.7% BA: .165 OBP: 277 SLG: .326

    The irony is that he has been saying batting average doesn't matter. HRs are the most important thing.
    He has constituently and harshly, judged hitters based on HR over avg
    He didn't want guy A because he only hit 15 hr but batted 300
    But guy B who hit 250 and jacked 25 hr? That got him excited.

    Now the Yankees are middle of the pack because of average?

    Do you think he knows where they rank in HRs?

    There was a game around a month ago where he Kd in his first 3 ABs and got boo'd like crazy. Then he walked and got a sarcastic cheer and fans started doing the sarcastic, "Joey-Gallo. ----- Joey Gallo -----"
    I remember him on first base looking into the crowd then just putting his head down and shaking it with resentment and anger. I thought that was the moment he broke

Cone, Leiter and Kaat were the best of all the former players. O'Neil is very likable.
    You mean ma and pa pinstripes? I actually look for the opposing team's broadcast when they're on Sirius They're both terrible absolutely terrible
