    The Carter era has to end. They better figure out Clippard. Not sure what's up with him.

    Yes, he got a bloop single the other day. He's here for his home runs, that's it. His defense at first base has been lacking as well.

    Well, we limp into the AS break, but have some hopes coming out of it. The big debate seems to be does, Cashman go for help to win this year or wait? I hate to say it, but I say we stand more or less pat. Unless, we can get a good deal on Quintana and/or perhaps, Bour from Miami. Bour, will require additional info on, Bird.

    I like what, Cashman said "We are not seeking A Championship, but Championships"!!!!

    I would tend to agree. I think they are better than they've played the last month, but not as good as the way they played to start the season. They're somewhere in the middle.

    Bour is a nice player, his left handed bat is especially enticing. That said, he's almost 30 and is having a career year. Yankees had Quintana once before when he was an average prospect and projected as a 5th starter. It's one thing to pitch like a beast in Chicago, it's a different animal in NYC.

    I think the Yankees are highly worried about Bird. That's two years in a row where he just doesn't heal. I think the second half is going to be a fight, but they need to get healthy. Tanaka and Pineda need to pitch better and the vets in the bullpen MUST pitch better.

    As for Pineda, my dislike for him has been evident. I'd dump him as soon as he strings together a few good starts and call up Adams.

    Well, Yanks are heating back up since the break. Good news indeed!!!


    Is it hust me or does anyone else notice that more and more batters seem to be utilizing the "Open" stance? (i.e. left foot back for right handers.)

    I've noticed that too Bill!

    Garcia signed! Will they sign Sonny Gray today!

    Oh and never count out Brett Gardner, one of the older Yankees!! A triple to tie the game and a walk off homer to win it; a day later a walk off hit to win it!

    This thread has been pretty quiet this year, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the Yankees have had a fantastic year no matter what happens in the Wild Card game. Coming into the season I would have been happy with a 500 ball club. This is way more than that.

    I will say this, when this team clicks on all cylinders offensively, they are really hard to beat. If they get any kind of starting pitching, they could be a tough out in the playoffs. Now, that's IF they get out of the Wild Card round. That's no easy task. Anything can happen in a one game playoff.

    Great comeback by the Yanks. Back to back years Cleveland loses three close out games in a row.

    Wow what a game last night. My heart rate is already elevated from my recent surgery and last night it probably jumped another 20 beats per second by the 9th inning!
