  1. I never trusted this pen, except for Holmes and Hamilton, even when the results were good. Weaver’s still performing and Holmes is having his annual fainting spell, as the two lefties and Santana have hit the skids.

    1. Coming in, I agree that Holmes and Hamilton were the only trustworthy guys, but I now trust Weaver and Tonkin. Hamilton, too, except when he pitches hurt like a FUCKING MORON. “Gee, Ian, suddenly your pitches are all being clobbered, maybe you’re secretly hurt and not telling anyone because you’re a fucking moron?” “No, no, I just suddenly suck.” These morons who pitch through injuries, I just don’t understand them.

      So with Hamilton and Burdi out, that gives them Weaver and Tonkin as reliable relievers, and Holmes as, well, you know, Holmes. Amazing when good, awful when not good. Adding Effross will help a lot.

      But yes, Cash needs to go out and get another guy, because while I can live with Marinaccio (and I assume Tim Hill will be good once Blake is done working with him, and I even have some faith in Mieskiskskskssksz), Ferguson and Gonzalez are just wastes of space, and Kahnle is essentially fungible.

  2. Signed RHP Phil Bickford (#53) to a Major League contract
    • Designated LHP Victor González for assignment.
    • Recalled RHP Yoendrys Gómez (#94) from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
    Marinaccio to Scranton.
    Yay Phil Bickfird! Who?

  3. Verdugo is sitting against Sale and Booner is inserting Jones career OPS+ 38 in the 5 spot. To Boone’s credit Jones has a big split he’s hitting 167/549 against LHPs. Who’s the bigger idiot Booner for batting Jones 5th or Cash for making him the key RHB off the bench? Verdugo is hitting 255/662 against LHPs.
    Cash gives us garbage, Booner serves the garbage back up to us.

    A Volpe (R) SS
    J Soto (L) RF
    A Judge (R) CF
    G Stanton (R) DH
    J Jones (R) LF
    D LeMahieu (R) 3B
    J Trevino (R) C
    B Rice (L) 1B
    O Cabrera (S) 2B

  4. Gonzalez had a ERA under 4 so better than some, but that’s not so meaningful in a RP. 11 Ks to go with 13BBs and 3 HBP is terrible.

    At least the guys they brought up struck out some guys in the minors, 35 in 27 innings for one and 54 in 46 for the other.

    1. And not batting 9th. And batting 5th behind Judge and Stanton. I’m going to go out on a limb to say no other MLB team will have a worse 5 hitter today than the Yankees.

    1. And you’d think the Yankees would have the same effect on the Orioles.
