Everyone's going to miss my comment about the pilot being "Penny Dreadfully Boring" :(

The more games Teix misses (and the hints that he will need to get regular days off going forward to protect the wrist) the more I think that the Yankees should pick up a first baseman.

I think Morales is probably too pricey for them, but Eric Chavez would fit in perfectly, wouldn't he?

Agree but I'll give it a little more time.

We could move useless bum McCann to first

i don't know much about numbers and statistics and things of that nature, but wouldn't McCann be significantly shittier at a corner infield position than he already is?

This site is un-accepting of my kind. Beep boop. :( We like baseball too. :( :(

SG said...

McCann's offense is less valuable if he's not catching, but the question you have to ask is if the Yankees are better off with McCann at 1B and Murphy at catcher, or McCann at catcher and Player X at 1B.

Ellsbury haters?

Trade Ellsbury after that catch

Tree said...

That ground out is 100% on Kay.

SG said...

F Ellsbury. Big deal, he apparently made a passable catch.

Claybot said...

I miss Phil Hughes.

dakranker said...

I liked that IBB

dakranker said...

Worst infield defense ever

Brian Cronin said...

I'm sorry, Phelps, you deserved better than that shit show.

There's one for my side of the RA debate, no?

bebop said...

Its a good thing Kelly Johnson is a truly great hitter. So Cash with Tex coming off an injury felt no need to actually sign a professional 1B. Is it possible there's no one at Scranton who's less bad?

dakranker said...

Solarte's magic s well gone

SG said...

.255/.330/.375. Yeah, that's worth $21.8M a season.

SG said...

If you're going to double-switch, WTF wouldn't you remove Ellsbury?

bebop said...

First the Braves foist McCann on us then they roll over and play dead against the townies.

dakranker said...

No way this team can contend with this infield and this lineup. Only way they could surprise me is if they sign Morales, meanwhile Teix and Beltran stay healthy. Otherwise, there's no chance to win the east.

bebop said...

Mark Reynolds might've been a decent fit. Better then KJ anyhow. Was he asking too much money?
