The Pirates offense is averaging 3.56 runs per game which is 27th in the league. Bryan Reynolds has been the top offensive player for the Pirates hitting 23 home runs and driving in 54 RBIs. in this game if the Pirates want to find success they are going to need to find a way to get the offense going.

    Pirates @ Yankees
    Tue, Sep 20 • 7:05 PM EDT

    TBD

    Nestor Cortes
    LHP
    10-4, 2.70 ERA, 142 SO
    Nestor Cortes Jr. picks up 10th victory Wednesday

    Nestor Cortes Jr. pitched five innings, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven in New York’s 5-3 win in Boston on Wednesday

    Cortes held Boston scoreless through the first four innings before allowing his only run on a Conner Wong RBI-double in the 5th inning. Cortes earned his first win since July 30 against the Royals and reached 10 wins for the first time in his career. Cortes improves to 10-4 on the season with a 2.70 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 142 strikeouts in 140 innings across 25 starts.

    Wed, Sep 21 • 7:05 PM EDT

    Roansy Contreras
    RHP
    5-4, 3.24 ERA, 74 SO

    Luis Severino
    RHP
    5-3, 3.45 ERA, 95 SO
    The plan at one point was for Severino to be activated sometime next week, but it sounds like the Yankees may be reconsidering that plan. Severino threw just 45 pitches in his latest rehab start Wednesday, allowing 2 ER and striking out 4 in 4 innings. Severino last started for the Yankees on July 13, a two-inning outing against the Reds before exiting with a strained right lat.

    Wow Roansy is having a great rookie season. I'm happy to see that. At the same time, I wish they still had him instead of Taillon!

    Yep. I was thinking the same.

    But if he had been here, Cashman would have traded him for someone in a body cast

    We've traded a fairly decent rotation in the last yr plus. Roansy, Sears, Waldichuk, Wesneski Monty

    That's ridiculous! Cashman only gets guys in walking boots and air casts; he draws the line at body casts.

    Not exactly true. Yankees acquired Kei Igawa and Carl Pavano both were stiffs!

    You mean like we bought Cole for $35M per. Wow, at that rate we can buy the rest of a starting staff for just $140M per year- chump change. Just might be cheaper to draft/develop at least some of your starting staff.

    Cortes was cheap. Taillon was a cheap trade. Cashman will be working on the Marlins this winter for Sandy Alcatraz. Peraza and Schmidt look to be the head pieces going. Jorge Soler looks to be the attachment player for $12 million.

    Then again, Yankees have an unlimited supply of ca$h to buy an entire rotation when needed on some years. I remember back in 89 we did this and Dallas Green gave George the thumbs up for the rotation with the big signings of Andy Hawkins and Dave La Point. George then surprised Dallas with the signing of 46 yr old Tommy John that George told Dallas to put him in the rotation. 89 wa a year to remember.

    I remember this true story. I was at the Clearwater spring complex as the Yankees were playing a split squad game and I was by the dugout with the see through gate and Dallas was standing like 3 feet from me and he was telling somebody, I think it was Billy Connors, about how good Roberto Kelly looks this spring. He said the problem is goddamn George will trade him for another Ken Phelps. Lol, 3 years later Stick traded him for Paulie.

    I'm guessing you are saying Alcantara?? If you're talking about Sandy Alcantara, Marlins ace that they just signed to a team friendly, long term extension... yeah that not happening, ZERO chance.

    After Ng screwed Cashman so hard he still hasn't been walking right, U really think Cash is going to go back again, lube himself up, grab his ankles and say ready for round 2?

    If Peraza, Torres and Hicks was the ask for Lopez and one of their bad contracts, Peraza and Schmidt isn't going to be remotely close to getting Alcantara.. that a lesser package for a much better pitcher. I"m Alcantara is easily one of the best young aces in BB and they aren't tearing it down

    Gotta quit listening to those voices in your head buddy
