    Kahnle's music is Shinsuke Nakamura's theme?

    Gardner will be the first Yankee to have his last name on the back of the jersey
    None of the other guys realized this. Here's a guy who has a real nickname and was smart enough to realize the implications while many of the other ones are complete reaches.   I mean - All Rise?   That's not a nickname.  It's a terribly gimmicky hr call by a terrible announcer.   
    Grown ass men getting all huffy about baseball jerseys for a couple days. 
    Would you rather us stand idle and say nothing? C'mon man.  I like batflips but alternate jerseys I can't stand...
    Then you probably won't be a fan of this story:  http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/With-Didis-Emojis-Clown-Face-Squid-Join-Babe--Boss-Yankees-Twitter-Tweet-440044723.html
    That article is all over the place!

    I like didi's tweets which has nothing to do with alternate Jerseys.

    Awful awful loss.
    some questionable stuff here by Girardi,
    1 - using Chapman for a second inning
    2 - not using Ellsbury as a pinch runner when Headley got on to steal second
    Montgomery was decent, though more lucky he has good defenders in the outfield. As bad as Chapman was, Devers is impressive for the Red Sox.

    I think this has been a fairly questionable year for Girardi.  I am curious to see if they keep him.

    So yeah, the Ellsbury thing.  Had him pinch hit rather than pinch run, then you bunt (Torreyes) Headley over who is likely going to take 2 hits to score from 2nd anyways.

    I thought Chapman was dealing before the Devers home run.  Hanley looked like a fool.

    I went to sleep after bottom 9.

    I think it will depend on Girardi if he wants to stay more than if they let him go.

    This catching situation is so overblown.  He is fine.

    Just like Schwarber is fine in the outfield?

    As long as he wins games with his bat and doesn't lose them with his glove, then yes.

    He has one big league season in him and his defense outside of )a quick rash of passed balls is fine.  Yes, he has a lot but it equals one a week so far, which I don't think is the biggest deal in the world.  Also, this. He is and will be fine.

    • Framing: +4.0 runs (13th)
    • Blocking: -1.3 runs (80th)
    • Throwing: +0.8 runs (10th)
    • Total Fielding: +3.5 runs (15th)

    I will go further to say that Sanchez is the cornerstone piece of the young crop of players and is my favorite home grown player.

    I don't think we know what we are going to get out of Judge at this point.  I really like Frazier too, but Sanchez I think, is going to be around for a very long time.

    Some good stuff here on both Jeter and Sanchez.

    I have been wondering what this means for the Jeter-Yankees relationship as well.

    I like him too.  He's the more polished of the bunch.

    If Judge gets back to his old self though?  Look out.  Watching the game last night the announcers dissected Judge's stance.

    Also heard some interesting things about closers and their shelf life being 3-4 years tops.

    Only one player though.  We/I got so used to seeing him I really thought that was supposed to be the norm...

    I said earlier this year that that stretch was likely the best stretch of his career.  That said, strikeouts were always going to come.  It has been the case at every level.

    He is still third in the big leagues in OPS, even with this stretch.

    just curious to know if Yankee fans kill him for the strikeouts as much as Phils fans killed Ryan Howard for the strikeouts?

    Not yet, but he's only 600 at bats into his career. We'll see what he ends up.

    I ridiculed Howard for the K's.  If Judge's OPS drops then I'll start complaining.
