    Yanks still only get to bat 9, sometimes 8. Will be interesting to see how they slot everybody.
    But honestly, not really. I only watch them vs Sox.

    MLB.tv has a fathers day special for $50 for the rest of the season so I broke down.

The power in that lineup is ridiculous, but their offense was clicking without the all or nothing big boys playing. Encarnacion is another of those.

    They really need an ace, so maybe they're building up for a trade for Scherzer or another.
    Frazierís days in the Bronx are definitely drawing to an end with the new pickup, which Iím a little bummed about. Hopefully whoever they add to the rotation will be worth it.

    Frazier got optioned to 3a today. Gotta be tough on a guy hitting 285/333/522, and on pace for 20+ jacks. I hope they keep him.

    Devers has quietly evolved into one of the best-fielding 3B's in baseball. He's good with the hot shots. And with the shift on, it's become important for the 3B to have range and he does. Last 2 games he's demonstrated the value.

    Noticed he has been losing some of his baby fat. Saw an article this weekend about his "sneaky speed". Didn't get back to read it though. 3b has been solved finally.

    And he hit the furthest opposite field home run ever measured by statcast

    Bogaerts is a monster this year.

    Not trying to rain on Rafyís parade, I love the guy- but isnít Devers still the kind of player who will make a couple awesome plays on the hot corner and drop a routine pop up in the same night? He still leads the AL for errors third, but I feel like a lot of those were early on in the season and heís lost another 15 lbs since then.

    One of my favorite stats. What was the launch angle on that??

    Yanks hit a bad skid dropping 8 of 10 or something but if they can put some W's up with this battered staff against the Rays and Astros I'll be pretty happy.

    I think the game last night by Tanaka was the best he's pitched since coming over from Japan, I can't remember the last time I saw a pitcher go yard.

    Is that true? I haven't looked recently, but last I checked I thought he was still pretty high in terms of E's. Have always liked the kid, though.

    edit: just saw SJ mention that he still leads the league for 3B E's, so I'm wondering if ice is making the point based on what he's seeing recently, or if you look at the stats for the past month or something if he's better than he was. I've seen him make some really tough plays, but he also makes a lot of mistakes (which I think is to be expected at his age).

    that kid is only 22 and just about every team minus oakland would be stoked to have him, but his defense is nunez-esque right now

    100% right, but he has been getting better defensively. And that bat...

    It should be an arrestable offense to bat Taylor, Hernandez and Barnes back to back to back. Talk about a black hole in a lineup. Itís especially painful when their best catcher has now hit homers in 5 straight games in AAA, but they canít find room for him in LA.

    It's possible I got carried away about Devers a bit.

    Donít back off now. You were just getting on a roll!

    Devers is def a work in progress defensively, but at least to my eye he looks way more solid than earlier in the year.

    Yeah, that's kind of what I was wondering. I think he has real potential, though--I mean, he does make a lot of really tough plays, he just also garbages up some easy ones. But I really think he's getting better, and again, that bat...

    Encarnacion doesn't strike out much and is a solid contact hitter and hits the long ball

    This is too good to fact check:
    https://www.nj.com/union/2019/06/ex-...heres-why.html

    ďEx-MLB star Lenny Dykstra spent 9 hours dumpster diving outside a Jersey Mikeís with his friend, a tag-team wrestler who goes by Sprinkles the Clown

    He had accidentally thrown out his dentures, specially made with bone marrow and valued at $80,000.Ē

    Hey it's Lenny Dykstra. Anything is possible.

    There's video, of course:

    Time has not been kind to Mr. Dykstra.

    I don't get it. I eat bone marrow all the time and it's like meat butter. No clue how checking that box is some kind of luxury upgrade when ordering your new dentures.

    The rest of it seems to check out though. Sprinkles the Clown and whatnot.
    I still call it The Jake.
