    Yankees need a few days off. Good timing.

    It was obvious. Two outs Boone once again thought he could steal an out and use Avilan to get the third out. But Avilan immediately gave up a double and then had to stay in due to the three batter rule. So one HR later the game is toast. Boone is never going to change.

    You know you can just call me Matt, right Muggs? And as I said previously, context matters. You saying this and a certain troll saying it are not the same thing.

    What do you expect when we have a commissioner who is a ding dong.

    Can we at least call up Schmidt and Garcia so I can have a slight bit of enjoyment? They'll probably just slide Cessa into the rotation and call it a day.

    Of course, the other good news is this means Happ will stay in the rotation and his $17M option will vest. Good times!

    If he just called you Matt, how would we distinguish you from the other 2350 Matts?

    You and I are normally on the same page when it comes to the Yankees. On this one we are very far apart. He’s made mistakes, of course. But we aren’t even in the same book!

    It doesn't sound so good the way you laid it out.

    At this point, I think Happ is the least of our problems. We got a AAA lineup and a manager who processes in-game situation very slowly.

    You’re saying “following orders“ like it’s a bad thing. I wanted for so long for the Yankees to hop on the moneyball train way back when Oakland and Tampa were the only teams doing it. They have adopted the system and it’s worked very well. If we hadn’t been plagued with injuries going back two seasons now we’d probably have a championship. Having the team be so prepared with matchups and scouting reports is amazing to me. I wish I had that job! I don’t see it as a bad thing to have a department dedicated to that and getting that data to the manager and coaches. And having them use that in-game. I’m sure it’s not 100%, and I’m sure Boone has to make decisions all throughout the game. But the numbers always work out and over time they will hit. It shows since in his first two season Boone won 100+ games with no major league managerial experience prior, with a team plagued by injury after injury, at a time when the Yankees reloaded. They dumped the year before! Cash made some amazing moves. I don’t need to list them, you know who they are. So now we have a team who is favored in the top few spots to win it all. This year and last year. We are only 3 years into the reload. How many other teams can say that? It takes most teams 5-7 to get themselves back into a competitive state after a rebuild.

    Now we’re faced with more injuries. I keep saying this but everyone seems to keep overlooking or forgetting it. Our current team was built around having Severino and probably German, late in the season, to be a part of the rotation. So we’d have Cole, Tanaka, Severino, Montgomery, & Loaisiga/Happ. Could you imagine how dominating that rotation would be? Then after serving a suspension German would have been thrown in the mix. My god, that sounds like 120 wins. But injuries hurt, we lost Severino again. Covid hit and we lost German for the entire season. And yet we still have 5 starters AND 2 major league ready starters waiting. So where we are right now is about what I expected. So yeah we’re stuck with Happ. Paxton getting injured was expected. So we’re gonna have to use te depth. Losing three starters and one sucking horribly and still being able to plug in talent and not bottom-of-the-barrel guys makes me feel good about how this team was constructed.

    And to end this lecture I want to point out again that the Rays are a damn good team. And they play us like it’s the playoffs series after series. They have our number. But the way the season has played out so far the Yankees are playing .780 ball against the teams they’re supposed to beat and are .500 against teams over .500. If you do that chances are you’re gonna have a great season and claim a good seed in the playoffs. So again, they are doin what I expected and hoped for.

    Sorry for the novel. I do respect your posts and opinions but I have seen everyone crap all over Boone for two days, on a few platforms, and I’m getting a little passionate about it.

    That would have worked, too. Donny was my fave growing up and Bernie was my fave of the 90s crew. I remember seeing Bernie in a 1/2 empty Yankees Stadium in 1993 and thinking he was going to be great.

    They definitely aren't looking good. I would have to give some sort of a pass due to covid. Also, it takes two to tango. These guys could be some of the best in the business, but if the players aren't buying into the system, it means almost nothing.

    Donnie’s 1985 season made me the fan I am now. I got sucked in by the awesomeness. When he retired Bernie and O’Neill were my guys. Then Jeter and Rivera hit and moved up the ranks. I also remember OYS havin a lot of empty seats. I used to always get seats in the lower level in RF. First off, great view of the game. My favorite. Second, I got to see O’Neill and Bernie all game. Those were the days.

    Cash is the best manager in baseball supported by the best front office. They'll do that from time to time, no doubt. And its not all Boone, Cashman's nerds need to do better. A lot of these decisions are made by arbitrary numbers that shouldn't weigh as heavily as they do into some of these decisions. Not saying Boone is doing a great job because he's having a truly awful season more similar to his first year than last year, but there is more to it.

    So the small market Rays with no money manage to still get 2 great managers in Madden and Cash. Meanwhile all we can get from Cashman is Boone.

    They haven't had a top of the line and long-term commissioner since I don't know when, whereas the NFL appointed a genius in Pete Rozelle. And he gave that league a 30 year advantage that MLB has never been able to overcome.
