    terribly upset in the yanks for the lack of offense tonight..against a pitcher they do well against.. just when you start to believe again in this team reality sets in.. they are just not good enough...they got to do whatever it takes to somehow get ohtani during the free agent winter..

    Right now they are not good enough to catch TB or Baltimore, but it's a long season and a come back is not entirely impossible. Both TB, and the Oriol's will have their down periods hopefully during a Yankee winning streak . If it doesn't happen, then a wildcard will have to do for the Bronx Bombers.

    Maybe that will happen one day, but it's not happening right now. I don't see how anyone can be satisfied with a sub .200 BA and a 280 Obp. When Judge and Rizzo don't hit the whole offense collapses with the exception of maybe Bader and Torres.

    Hahaha. Yes he is.

    The only thing I like about him commentating is when the other guys make him look silly.

    Alright, we are not better than the Os at this point of the season. The good thing about baseball is its length. We have time and proved that we can knock the games back to 5. But in 2 games we are back to 7 again and we now play the uninspired Padres. Maybe we can get Soto from them. But im starting to think Juan Soto is overrated. What is sooooooo impressive about him?

    And what is the status on Stanton and Rodon?

Even Trevino is more or less a backup player playing full time. We essentially have 7 role players playing full time. Getting rid of Hicks reduced it from 8 to 7 lol.

    I hate to even suggest this, but JD is probably going to be a huge improvement over what we currently have.
    I think Volpe will be fine. Cabrera is a really good guy to have playing a few days a week and filling in on D or to run. IKF is another good bench player.
    I genuinely don't think they are bad. I think they are overused and it exposes them.
    If you had a legit LF and your starting OF was Judge, Bader and LF. We wouldn't notice Cabrera and IKF and we would be happy to have them off the bench.

    That is a scary thought. The only issue is that JD plays a position that is covered and covered by a guy who can hit. So they will need to make DJ a DH or JD a DH. (Say that 3 times fast)
    I actually think JD makes things more muddled. If you want to DH judge, you have to sit DJ or JD.
    When Stanton comes back and you lose the DH spot, what do you you do then? They are in a piss poor situation of their own creation.

    The worst is knowing how long they will give JD. "He's getting back into shape..." "The bat is coming around and he'll start hitting soon..." "He's putting in the work. He's really close..."

    BLah blah blah...

    Stanton has started "baseball activities". Rodon's back feels better but no timeline on throwing

    I agree about it being a long season. My feeling is, the Os are here. They are young. They are tough. They are hungry. If I am not mistaken, most are all out of their own system. That means they are changing the culture of the team. It will be very tough to knock them off that course.
    When young talent realizes its own ability and potential, you can't keep it down. They will hit a slide at some point and that will be the big test for them.

    On the other side of the spectrum is the Yankees. They are an old team relying on old, slow, injury prone players. That's the reality. Judge, Rizzo, DJ, Stanton, JD are the names on which they bet their season.
    Thankfully they have guys like Bader, Torres and Volpe along with guys like Cabrera and IKF, who add youth and athleticism.

    As always, they have a punchers chance and it is a long season. We don't know what happens regarding other teams health and makeup.
    I do think the Os are going to be in the mix and I am very curious to see their series with TB.

    First of all lets check the current pace of the two team

    Rays are at 115 win pace
    Os are at a 106 win pace.

    NOT HAPPENING

    Rays payroll is $65 million
    Os payroll is $64 million

    But a lot of the Rays and Os players are still talented but are just paid less because of service time. Yankees can do the same but have to lose for 3 consecutive years to help with the draft picks. THAT IS NOT HAPPENING!

    So we are stuck with our bloated payroll and have to watch teams like the Rays and Os play better record wise than the Yankees. Hal is probably scratching his head.

    I still feel things will even out by Aug 15. But of course the Yankees need their roster to be healthy.

    At least we have 3 decent starters now with Sevy back.

    I just dont see how Baltimores pitching will hold up all season unless they trade for a TORP.

    I see Rays in the 95-102 range
    I think Yankees will be 2nd place and Baltimore 3rd.
    Toronto is a head scratcher as well. The Os have passed them up for now.all we heard about was how the Jays and their young lineup will do damage. They dont have enough pitching IMO. Manoah has schitt the bed this year. But they will have a hot streak at some point this season.

    If we can get Rizzo, Judge and Stanton all healthy and the other do their job we can probably get close to Tampa. But a lot of ifs.

    I won't be shocked if 95 wins, will win the division. With that said, I think the Os and the Rays can hit the 100 mark.

    I hold by my initial guess and thing the yankees will be high 80s.
    It should be enough to get them the WC

    My issues is, I see the Os, Jays and Rays getting better as the season progresses.

    With that said, may prediction was based on the current lineup. If the Yankees find two more, good bats, (Preferably lefty)? That could change quite a bit.

    Fans would wayyyyyyy rather extend Bader than Torres. It's not even close

    Ezquiel Duran as well. If Cashman had done nothing and just kept Urshela, Duran and Estrada we'd actually have a good hitting infield. Instead we have one of the worst.
