Listen: Yankees, Kevin Manella, Mets discussed on Joe & Evan
"Fight the ninth inning. What about eating's one, John? Right. What was the fight there when Ryan braziers linked to three innings, right? But that really does. I mean, like I said, it's it's great. And you're right. I mean, it's it would have been worse. Yes. If he's called safe ninety Yankees think that they've tied the game up. And then they overturned a call and the Red Sox are dancing after you think it's not just say you're a hundred percent, right. But it just it you need it. I understand it. It takes away took away from a no question about it. You know, baseball's worst nightmare when it comes to replay that you have that delay in celebrating something in this case winning the series. But I think what helped a little bit too is that it was an obvious call when you look at question there was a lot closer, right? We could have been sitting there for four minutes debating daddy was out the driver was taken away early on. But you're right. And you imagine scenarios like the one I just painted with angel Hernandez umpiring at first base and he calls them safe. And he's early out scenarios that a worse, but how about it WorL Nunez making a good defensive play to eliminate the Yankees can make that's dumb. I mean, again, it goes back to court against the fact that he's even playing I mean, so, you know, it's it's unbelievable. We'll get to your calls. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six lot of angles from this game plus the future for the Yankees. But let's kick it off with Joe in massapequa park. Joe, how are you? Good morning. Good morning. To be honest. I thought you guys would be a little more giddy. I mean, I'm very giddy this morning. I mean, this can't lose enough for me. I'm I'm still waiting. Well. Winning come on the idea. Look of my upset the Yankees lost now. But I mean is it like the Mets winning? That's actually, how could you even say that it's not even the Mets winning weights. Like the Mets win. It's not even the same stratosphere. And I honest between you, and I don't want to waste our time with met fans. Global at the Yankees lost today. I mean again. Yeah. I mean, it's not like we want anything. Again. I'm am. I upset the Yankees was of course, not fan. Put on me to sit here and say the same thing is that the Mets just one that one of the vision series. You're crazy not even if the Mets win a division series. I ain't sleep. I slept last night. It's brutal Kevin in Manila pan. Kevin. How are you? What's up? Taking my call. How you doing good? Kevin good. I want to make two points. I didn't hear you. Monologue on on on the game. I I got to take. I don't want to hear your take on this. And that is first of all I know Boone is gonna get a lot of criticism for leaving Tabatha. And last night. I think like this. He knew he can get out of the bullpen six innings last night between the four big guys between Britain depends Robertson and chiming. So if you were gonna take out early he was going to bring in bringing someone else, I don't know if he's going to go to jail. I don't know what he was gonna do what they see really blew up in the second or third any. So I think I don't think he left the lease on too long. And I take is and the truth is that whoever you would've brought in what if they would have given up run then you kill him. Win. They're going to win twenty twenty nine. Disagree with you about that. If another guy comes in and gives up runs will rip the guy I think when you have a loaded bullpen, and I don't buy he could have gotten seven or eight innings out of his bullpen. He never used Chad green in this game. And he never used Jay have which is a guy you just brought up. And I think that's a guy. I definitely would use last night considering Tanaka would have been my game five starter. Anyway. We knew going in that this was going to be a bullpen game. So I hear what you're saying. I guess I hear your point. And my second point which I wanted to make was this team is way too reliant on a home run. And I think they don't play ballpark ballpark way too many right up. And I think the Red Sox expose the Yankees. They used speed the situation will hitting and that is something the Yankees are going to have to address this all season. I'm sticking of can Carlos Stanton waving at pitches, repeat out of the strike that don't get drives me nuts, and he came up in a few big big box in the series. And he came up empty Al batting averages. Three hundred forty of the series means nothing to me the guy came up in clutch situation. And he did zilch nothing. And that is something they're going to have to Brian Cashman with all due respect yesterday developing young players and Torres judges stuck. I would even keep Sanchez. I don't know what they're gonna do with bird. But they're going to have to address the fact that this team is way too reliant on the homerun. Kevin. I got good news Ernie. And I had a nice discussion before the show, and he got got my approval from earning Ernie's up with this of two players the Yankee should add that will address Kevin's concerns. Those on my, you know, one of them was my idea. The other one was your. We met in the middle who want to do this right now. Or should we wait now? Now, I do now number one don't hate me for saying this. I'm just being real Daniel Murphy. Left handed battery. I get that doesn't strike out. He can play first base. He can play D H. He can play second base. And here's the other guy. And this is the guy was thinking about last night. He's a free agent. He's not that old. He was healthy this year. It involves getting rid of Brett Gardner, and that's Michael Brantley. Michael Brantley and other left hand hitter is not a home run hitter puts the bat on the ball is a three hundred hair. Those two guys are exactly would Kevin Manella pen describe now, you're right both free agents. And they're both not gonna cost you a fortune did not even gonna cost you that much both of them. I can certainly see Murphy with the Yankees. No doubt. Yeah. And Brantley makes a lotta sense Brett Gardner is a tough one because I like Brett Gardner, but he's getting up there in age. He's gonna make twelve million dollars next year. And if you're giving me a choice between Brett Gardner and Michael Brantley, it's not that difficult of a choice. Plus your hope that Clint Frazier is going to be a factor next year. And I can't believe I'm saying this guy's name. But he is on the Roth. Stor Jacoby ellsbury. I saw I was reading today as to how much money they still owed. This guy is on making twenty two million dollars a year on a you talk about a bad contract. Yes. Natty this always works out. I saw the Mets do it. We've seen the Yankees do it. When you lose one of your guys in free agency. Darrell strawberry Robinson, canola. The worst thing you could do is by his payment money Vince Coleman Jacoby ellsbury. Now. You're right. And on a percent, right. There's a great analogy, bro. And I'll give ellsbury the edge because he's throwing firecrackers at any buying while the different style. Vince did play even though he stuck. He did play. Oh boy. Mike in different areas with different franchises fit. The Bill grateful outstanding analogy you wanna let Darryl walk. You wanna let canot walk. I disagree. I would've disagreed with. Daryl offense, again would have been screaming. I would have been going on. I was beside myself. And I obviously disagreed with Goodell. And I know how things turned out just like things turned out with got it. Right. He knows if everything is the same or different. But if you want to let those guys go find let him go don't respond with a dumb move for the move. That's what happened. More your calls drama cashing in Al Harris, and they were hiding under rocks. When they went strawberry. Go. No. Oh, I get it. And if I'm not mistaken. I don't know if this digestion, I can imagine. I don't this one's as bad. But I'll give the Red Sox example to they let move on though. And I think they signed Jose Offerman wasn't that. Right. Jose. That's a name. But that's that's the problem. You can't be doing that. I get a lot of really good player. Go I'm gonna replace. Well, I got another met one your fun. Let's let Mike Hampton does. Not that Mike Hampton waiting after that. But yes and signed Kevin eight. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Well, but I mean Hampton was Riddick. The one year we added he was it's October best time of year. You can bet on everything the NFL is in full swing.
