    yup that pretty much summarizes it
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    I come here everyday to wait for him. I think he said he would come here. Nothing to be done.

    I'm beginning to come round to that opinion. All my life I've tried to put it from me.

    Gogo: Let's leave.
    Didi: We can't.
    Gogo: Why not?
    Didi: We're waiting for Gleyber.

    We could hire Coco Crisp for the coaching staff, that is close.

    We do have DominGO German. Maybe he would do? Or maybe we could go with Roro (Ronald Torreyes), to keep it in the infield.

    Come to think of it, I just remembered ... Torreyes' actual nickname is Toe. So we can have Didi and Ro-Toe.

    Re: Waiting for Gleyber: The Torres Watch

    Lets see what happens:

    So do the math. If Torres’ major-league debut were delayed by 16 days or more, he would fall short of that critical full season, enabling the Yankees to squeeze an extra year from him before his salary begins to skyrocket through arbitration and then free agency.

    For those in charge of talent compensation, such as general manager Brian Cashman, paying less for a longer period of time would seem to be the optimal course of action, as the Cubs did with Kris Bryant in 2015.

    And yet Cashman insists the service-time clock will not be a factor if Torres is ready to help the Yankees on Opening Day, which is March 29 in Toronto.

    “It’s not part of my evaluation process,” Cashman told Newsday. “We’re trying to win. If we feel that somebody could benefit from more time in the minors, we’ll make that decision at the end of camp. But I’ll take all the information from what I see and factor that into the evaluation. Every win for us is valuable.”

    Re: Waiting for Gleyber: The Torres Watch

    From both a health and a financial standpoint, I'd be very surprised to see Torres make the opening day roster. IMO it makes sense to let him shake off the rust and build his stamina and confidence with an extended spring training in Florida during April. The financial savings down the road can also be significant by gaining another year of control on Gleyber.

    I'm also thinking that having Torres break camp as a starting player doesn't exactly send a message of confidence to either Torreyes or Wade, who should be able to adequately cover the position for the first 20-25 games in April.

    Nothing's been decided so let the competition began and if Torres is stroking the ball all over the place and playing his position well then let's see what happens.

    Why should Torres starting the season on the ML roster matter to Torreyes? - he knows he is a utility IFer.

    As for Wade, since he is being groomed in the Zobrist role, having Torres as the everday starter does not mean he is being overlooked. What matters to him is playing 4-5 times per week @ multiple positions .
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Being an alternative to Miguel Andujar @ 3B on any given day should get him more playing time. Might be interesting to see if he gets much work there in ST

    Dude just spit on two close outside pitches and when Aaron Nola tried to come back inside, fought it off for a double over the head of the 3rd basemen for a double.

    This wait is going to suck.

    I think he will be a stud, and I don't think it is going to take all that long..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    Yesterday he looked like a pull hitter. I don't know much about his past. Is he going to be labeled as a pull hitter?

    No.



    And even with all his HR being pulled last year according to that chart, he famously hit a 400 ft bomb to RF that cleared everything in the stadium in the AFL two offseasons ago.

    Thanks for the spray chart. I think I have a better understanding of what to expect.
