So the I found it interesting the the win on Saturday when Batanes through the wild pitch? To To win the game of the Yankees. Kratz was squaring to bunt with Clint Frazier on third so they were going to do a squeeze play. That is not very late two, thousand, ten's Yankees like. It was a safety squeeze 'cause. I'm I trust? I trust that is. He's a fundamentally I'd. He went to the Tom Manzke School of and you don't stay in the League mcgriff would be to stay in the league this long and you're not. Up Up to snuff on your fundamentals that guy can bunt Right. He. Still plays pepper before games. The thing I was really looking forward to with these extra inning games with the runner starting on second base hot as the Yankees. Hand like that's why I wanted to see it do they everybody's They didn't bunt they're trying to hit the ball five, hundred feet. No matter who it is. They were lucky to win the first game I think because. Got bloop single by Geo. With to outscore the run and great and then today they loaded the bases and Gary Sanchez. Hit a batting practice batting practice pitch five, hundred feet batting practice pitcher that he got the the the jordy mercer non bunt drove meal. Little nuts. Sitting there like what are we doing here like I even if you're not gonNA. But if you're not to bunch already mercer who the Hell I definitely call them jody mercer because I feel like that's what it should be.

The same situation though. Delegates is still still win in the Yankees ballgames and he still he still got velocity issues and now kind of like aknowledging that that's it like that's probably what it's going to be ninety four.

He never got back up. That's a shame. It's a shame. It's a shame what happened to him and his honestly. Did be whips kill him. Said I was such a huge is awesome. Yeah. I thought he's just got a bad rap with the team. He was. He got he got screwed by the team for a while and then when he had the opportunity to like I'm a bona closer shit the bed completely shut the bed. Situation. Anything else baseball.
