    If not in that situation, when the heck do they plan on using the guy? There was also a situation in game 1, bases loaded and 2 out I believe it was, 7th inning, where he hit Hicks for Torreyes instead of Carter. If it's as simple as lefty/righty split thing that's ridiculous. Pretty sure all the binder has in it is a single sheet of loose leaf paper that says "Righty/lefty"
    I absolutely agree. Carter's only helpful role, besides a very occasional start at 1B, is THE exact scenarios you describe. Carter has to be the go-to pinch hitter over Hicks.
    Standings: Big Inning 32-16; Blue Cut 27-21; Shoo Fly 26-22; Husk 22-26; Frank Pierce 21-27; Iowa City 16-32.

    "Resting" Judge 4 games into the season with 2 off days in between those 4 games. I don't know if he is the right manager for a team transitioning to a youth movement.

    Ya is are also trying to contend so donf expect to see Judge in RF for 150 games. Knowing Hicks was going to start at some point doingit against a tough righty I have no problem with. Now if Judge starts to hit then leave him out there. Now any more than one time per week I will have a problem but Hicks is going to play some ams right now Gardner and Ellsbury are hitting better.

    Joe wasn't going to change. He most certainly is the wrong guy to lead this team through a transition.

    Sort of expected Hicks today. It's only one game so really not a big deal.

    It should not come at the expense of playing time for Judge this early in the season. Judge needs the at bats.

    Soooo bad at managing a bullpen. I'd like to see him without two relief aces. His brain would literally cave in.

    Betances is being "overworked" again! An inning and a third in April? Jeez, Joe, give the guy a breather, will ya?

    But, please, tell me about his awesome peripherals some more.

    I sure wish that Joe would re-read the chapter that if Warren is pitching well, leave him alone and let him pitch.

    There's no chapter like that in the Binder.

    That wasn't on Joe. Betances just showed why he lost in arbitration.

    They don't want Warren to start but pull him after an inning and a third.

    You're right, he's awful. Just another run-of-the-mill 14 k/9 reliever.

    Five games in with two off days and Ellsbury being rested today. And Romine the starting catcher.

    That really bothers me. Warren looked great. We see this all the time with Joe - it's like automatic. He love the match ups. Many times the opposing coaches just pinch hits and we lose our solid pitcher.... I call it micromanaging and I don't see this working that much. I am not saying we would have won that game but I think we lost the lead and the game. (IMO) This is Chapter one in the binder. Chapter two is the reliever (Warren, our long reliever) will not pitch more than one inning unless our starter is gone by the 3rd.

    "Conventional baseball wisdom suggests that, when a pitcher and a hitter pitch or bat with the same hand, the pitcher typically has the advantage."

    Chapter two is the reliever (Warren) can not pitch more than one inning.

    Just happen we won.

    I feel like he's been even more frantic with switches (of all types - pinch hitting and running especially and burning his whole bench in one move) than usual this first week of the season. It's concerning. I watch a lot of other games with MLB.TV and nobody else seems to make the amount of moves Joe does.
    Bad manager.

    Pulling Warren for Betances or Chapman I can understand. But for Layne simply because he is left-handed. And unfortunately with Joe we will see this move all season.

    It's been getting worse since the trade deadline of 2015. Panickin' Joe

    A few of us have decided he is not. Of course, batting Hicks second today worked out so he didn't come up in the 9th.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Joe is continuing to make head scratching decisions with the bullpen. Or does everyone forget last September's series at Fenway.

    Ellsbury back in the 2 hole. Romine playing again.

    Get rid of the binder and it's owner.
