    Same here.

    Too bad the Astros couldn't have moved to the AL five years earlier. CMW may have been finishing his career with NYY right now.

    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Wade Davis allowed his first 2 runs of the season to blow the save against Atlanta. That allowed Kendrys Morales to hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 13th, which improved Chien-Ming Wang's record to 2-0. Kansas City won 4-2 and improved to 18-19. Atlanta has a .250 winning percentage at 9-27.

    The Pirates locked up Francisco Cervelli for three more years.

    Not to coach, btw.

    Looks like Seattle has decided to make him into a full time reliever.

    I always liked Vidal. I hope he's enjoying playing for a first place team.

    Transactions today:

    1. Joel De La Cruz, who was on the Yankees roster for two days in April 2015 without pitching, got called up by Atlanta. Maybe he will make his MLB debut soon.
    2. Shane Greene was sent to West Michigan to rehab his injury.

    Milwaukee's Ramon Flores hit his first career home run, and it was against Jacob deGrom.

    Ichiro moved up to 32nd in career hits. Yesterday, he became the fourth oldest player since 1913 to have at least 4 hits and at least 5 times on base without reaching on an error or not reaching base. He did it at age 42 and 212 days. Pete Rose, Sam Rice, and Carl Yastrzemski did it while older.

    Make that 2,960. He became the oldest player to have two 4 hit games in 3 or fewer days. Miami beat Tampa Bay 7-6. Ichiro (4 hits, including one that got the winning run to third base), Martin Prado (had two RBI including the game-winning groundout), and David Phelps (1 perfect inning and the winning pitcher) all helped Miami. Ichiro doesn't have enough plate appearances to qualify, but if he did he would be ahead of Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson, Paul Goldschmidt, and Giancarlo Stanton in OPS.

    Eduardo Nunez is seventh in MLB in batting average with a .337. Ichiro is batting .330. He has 30 of the 65 hits he needs this year to reach 3,000, so he's on pace to do that.

    Edit: Nunez became the first Minnesota player to hit a leadoff inside-the-park home run (it could be in the top of the first or the bottom of the first). The franchise had that happen when they were in Washington before they moved. Former Yankee Chris Stewart replaced former Yankee Francisco Cervelli after Cervelli's foot got hurt by Wei-Yin Chen's pitch.

    Nunez has the 17th highest OPS in the AL. Probably not sustainable the way he is doing it, but still.

    Clippard, Melancon, IPK, Cervelli, Melky, Nunez... Lots of ML starters who the Yankees have given up on... And they always seem to get better after they leave

    Something is seriously wrong with their internal scouting dept

    Seems like they trade players prematurely.

    Clippard is on his 4th team since leaving the Yankees
    Melancon his 3rd
    Cervelli - maybe they misread this one, he looked like a classic BUC
    Melky - suspended - didn't get good til stated juicing, multiple teams since
    Nunez - this board couldn't run him out of town faster than he could run out of his own helmet

    the rest is just details.

    cervelli is a case of a mismatched asset. he wasn't going to be very valuable on the yankees as a BUC, and his trade value for most teams wasn't high because of the time missed. it was a risk that pirates took on that worked out. sometimes it happens.

    wilson trade though was inexplicable.

    Is citing the number of teams a player has been on somehow supposed to undermine their value?

    Teixiera was on 3 teams before reaching free agency... Cliff Lee was traded 4 times... Your point is?

    Believe it or not, talent evaluators and scouts can actually fail

    Meh other than Melancon and Cervelli, the rest of that list is so so.

    Pretty sure you could make a list like this for other teams though. Gotta keep it in perspective.

    Also, I don't think ANYONE on this board wasn't eager to ditch Melky and especially Nunez. Most people here wanted IPK gone too, although I definitely didn't. Many even wanted Cervelli gone (several noteworthy exceptions, including myself although I understood the trade).

    Chad Huffman, whose only MLB games were with the Yankees in 2010, has a .992 OPS for Toledo, Detroit's AAA team. That's the best OPS in the International League. In 2014 and 2015 combined, he played 73 games for the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan. Since his last MLB game, he has also played for AAA teams Columbus and Memphis. Huffman went 3-for-18 in MLB.
