    I believe Clint Frazier will give this team an extra spark. I love the way he plays the game.

    Yup. Even if they hate his defense at 3B, play him at 1B. His bat demands being in the lineup right now. But I think heíll make due at 3B and Torreyes can be his defensive replacement.

    He needs to rake and probably needs an injury. Gardner and Hicks are much better OFs and Judge and Stanton are Judge and Stanton. Then you got a guy like Tyler Austin who has earned time at DH or 1B against lefties when everyone is healthy. If Frazierís not traded though would be happy to see him used in some role late in the season to give guys a rest. I still expect a trade unless things go wrong and his value tanks.

    Torres' arrival won't impact Yankees as much as we'd like to think. Offense is the least of our problems now. But this is someone that I've been waiting for since last season. Exciting time for Yankee fans.

    You mean Torres isn't the savior?
    God, I love Yankee fans as they're never satisfied!

    You mean he can't also pitch?

    Ironically he’ll probably be a downgrade offensively given the 179 OPS+ Torreyes is currently rocking

    In fact, at 179 OPS+, Torreyes should be able to fetch us a top-of-the-rotation starter. Get it done, Cash.

    Re: Waiting for Gleyber: The Torres Watch

    Gleyber today threw down his bat in disgust, was pulled from the game and actually thought was the reason.

    Which brings me to Aaron Judge. I've talked a little bit about how his prodigious power obscures what a good hitter he is and Sherman has a real good article up now on just that.

    But he's missing a big point. Sure the approach and thought process has made Judge much more than a power threat. You see his adjustment game to game, AB to AB. But I think the most impressive part is his demeanor. That's what is taking him to the highest level there is.

    Talent, approach, Yes, yes, yes. But never let them see you sweat. I've seen at least three ABs this year that the umps took away from him by their trike zone. Judge? He barely bats an eye when that happens.

    I have a hard time understanding that because that's not me. But being able to just put everything behind him, is the mental skill or personality trait that truly separates Judge from The Best. And it will continue to be a huge benefit as he ages.

    Something for Gleyber to learn, but that's much easier said than done.

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

    I agree with everything you've said about Judge -- his makeup is off the charts.

    I don't know anything about Torres and his personality ... I hope he's got the right kind of makeup to be successful long term, but there are lots of ways for that to be true, i.e. he doesn't have to be a Judge clone to find his way.

    Agreed.

    Judge has a uncanny ability to learn AB by AB and also keep an even temper despite some terrible strike calls below his knee caps.

    A lot were wondering about Judge in 2018, but so far he has given us a pretty good idea that this is really Aaron Judge. He is a GREAT player and person. His adjustments are profound.

    Id like Gleyber to just be himself and not try to be a power hitter like most of our lineup, trying to fit in. I think Andujar was clearly pressing to start his 2018 and Stanton is still pressing to hit 4 HRs a game. Lets hope Torres gets his first hit out of the way today and make some nice plays at 2nd.

    I wouldn't put Gardner on the bench, and I definitely wouldn't play both Judge and Frazier in Right Field. I know shifts are the big thing right now, but I think it's important to have a Left Fielder.
