  1. Yeah he’ll be out for more than a month. Cashmans a genius because he said in the offseason injuries are part of Stanton’s game. (Then he got blasted for saying something that is obviously true.) he had a backup plan in place – Jasson. Sadly injuries are part of his game too it seems. And now they are stuck with jones as the DH? Wells? Whatever. As long as they are all healthy by the playoffs. (Playoffs? Playoffs?)

  2. Seems like a lot of panic.
    They’ve had a stunningly good several months and a bad week. The first has to be more statistically meaningful. I know 2022 is haunting, but, again, statistically, a repeat of something so ridiculous is unlikely… isn’t it?

    One thing though – it’s not the hitting that made them the best team in the league, it was the starting pitching. I’d think they’ll continue to be good. And you’ve just added Gerritt F*ing Cole. Watching people burying Gil after one (really) bad start was kind of amazing. My guess is that he was tipping his pitches. With his stuff, a lack of control doesn’t explain the consistent hard contact. They knew what was coming. They’ll fix that.

    They have a few glaring weaknesses – that’s the kind you want, because you know just what to fix and with maximal effect. And two of those weaknesses are among the easiest things to fix – bullpen and bench.

  3. The New York Yankees today announced that they have acquired infielder J.D. Davis and cash considerations from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for infielder Jordan Groshans.

    To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have transferred RHP Nick Burdi to the 60-day injured list.
