"Signed bogarts to play shortstop. Evil empires back, baby. As much as I would hate to see you die from that, it would be enjoyable to see Bogart's in the pinstripes. Well, so what's going to happen after Nestor Cortez gets nailed with the 80 game PD suspension? What do you guys do after that? Please. No, no, no. Let's not say the best picture in baseball. Explain this, that's their car test database. Where did this guy come from? What is happening? I don't know. It's like a Disney movie. He came from the Mexican league, or they found him on the scrap heap, and the guy's not the best picture of baseball. I don't know. He's crafty. He's a typical crafty lefty where he throws weird arm angles and is he my candidate? He's a crafty pitcher. Let's put it that way. I don't know. I'm getting out of here. No, he's lefty. Yeah, he's a crafty lefty, and he's got weird arm angles and he changes speeds and guys don't know what to do. It's remarkable. You can't even hit him. I don't get it. He has the lowest DRM baseball. I believe the moment at 1.35. I do know that. He was on your team last year and he was actually like half decent. He was no sign of this. Everybody thought it was like a flukey thing. Like, you know, when they had what was the guy's name years ago, Aaron small or something like the guy came up and you're right. And but he's the real deal. He's carried it over from last season to this season, and he, I joked with the shrimps again, and I'm only half joking in a playoff series. I'd rather have him start game one than Cole. Jesus. What's this Santana? How are we feeling about him these days? I'm not Santana, a Chapman. Severino? No, Chapman. Well, not great. I mean, I think he's shot. And that's going to become an issue down the line. I mean, there's already a lot of call that clay Holmes should be the closer because Chapman has control problems. And I saw a stat today where his spin rate is ridiculously down so he may be like a spider tech guy where the grip thing affected him as more than other pitchers in this or as much. What's going on here? Well, I'm into the team. I'm devouring information. I'm Guinea. I got to keep this going while it lasts. Yeah. Are they going to, if they make the playoffs?.

"Out of nowhere at age 32 with that one incredible season, be enough to erase all his previous mediocrity and lack of fame for him to make the 2023 MLB the show cover. And as we speak, he is leading the grapefruit league with 7 home runs. So it is happening. No wonder, they needed to trade Gary Sanchez to free up space for the big power bat of Kyle higashioka. We all know that homering a lot in spring training means you're going to home or a lot. Was it Jake? The socks was at the oriole. Like a decade ago? That was one of them. Yeah. Yeah, there's some slight predictive value to having a super hot spring, but not a perfect correlation. So, I mean, I think that the real answer here is that you don't have the arms that bend as if you can't hit home runs. And I know that power has not been his thing historically. It doesn't do it. And it's shocking because of the arms. But I think he should. He should try. He should decide to be more like Tyler O'Neill than like yandy Diaz in terms of what the arms suggest he should be able to do. Exactly. I feel very nervous about their catching situation just generally. I mean, I know that Sanchez wasn't thriving. In New York, but I feel a little I feel kind of nervous for them when it comes to catching. But I think that the depth in the rotation is really where I see them being potentially vulnerable. Although we thought that too last year and then it ended up being fine. So yeah, it would be a nice change to have a catcher who can do the catching part at least. I know that I believed in Gary. I still kind of believe in Gary, but it was frustrating to watch him. So I will also note that yes, well, Brett Gardner remains in play. I think the blue chase were reportedly talking to credit card as well. So that would be intriguing. But Aaron hicks speaking of Vlad and a 30 30 season Aaron hicks has said that he wants to have a 30 30 season as well, although he's like, he plays 30 games. And then 30 more. Does that? Is that what he means by that? Sure, yeah. Well, that would double last year's total. So that'd be good. And that would bring him right into Leiden with his totals from the previous couple seasons, although we can't blame him for 2020, I guess. But I like Karen hicks when he's healthy, it's just that that's a huge caveat for him. Out of the question that if something happens to hicks, like just stick one of the beef boys out there because we talk all the time about how Gallo and judge are really underrated as defenders and their great corner guys and they're not total strangers to center. I mean, I guess there's a health concern, but it wouldn't be like the worst defensive solution to have one of those guys out there and then I guess you'd have to put them out in a corner and then there's the entry risk there too, although he also hit better last year when he was playing the field, so there's that consideration too. I don't know, I'm just saying like, you know, Stanton even when he was with the Marlins was kind of in that same camp of underrated defensive outfielder. So that would be a way to get all those bets in the lineup and, you know, at least not have a huge hole defensively in center, but it would kind of depend on everyone staying healthy. It's my general opinion that you can't not play an outfielder who plays in right regularly like Gallo or judge in center just because you're worried about them getting hurt. Like if you're gonna extend Aaron judge, which Carlos Beltran may have broken that they already have, I don't know, at least it wasn't just nice anonymous Twitter account this time. It was the first day with the yes network his first broadcast. Yes. You're going to suggest that there is the extension and that has to walk it back yet. He needs to be able to make a throw from center field or like make place at center field. Even if he does the Bryce Harper doesn't lay out for everything and his defense kind of suffers for it so that he can remain healthy. Even if he does that, he needs to be able to play center field. Like they don't need to just sign Bret Gardner in the instance that, you know, Aaron hicks gets hurt in my opinion. All right, breakout pick. Anyone other than Kyle higashioka? I picked clay Holmes. Clay homes, I think, could be the next great Yankee reliever they got him in kind of an under discussed trade last year, which seemed like just a way to clear some 40 band space. They sent Diego Castillo and hoy park to Pittsburgh and Holmes had always had control problems with the pirates and over a hundred career innings. He walked more than 6 batters per 9, but with the Yankees after the deadline last year, he just had four walks in 28 innings, he boosted his strikeout rate. He had a 1.61 ERA, a 2.1 5th. So I think add him to Chapman who is a free agent after this year and the green and they're going to be in really good shape even if Chapman has his annual four week stretch when he can't hit the strike zone or somebody gets hurt Holmes under control for a while and I think he's a very good reliever now that. Thank you have figured out how to get him to throw strikes. I mean, I know that the shortstop who is promised is volpi, but like Oswald peraza is floating around in the high miners and he's like a top 100 prospect. So there's the chance that something weird happens on the middle infield and he ends up pressed into duty sooner rather than later and then he might have a chance to work out. Can David Garcia break out still? Is it possible for him to write it down? David Garcia or will we scale? Those guys on a team that might end up hurting for pitching debt at some point. They could perhaps break out and have an opportunity to do that. I mean, they do have talented guys in the high minors. We're all excited as I said about volpi, but there are other names here. Yeah, I mean, to some extent, even if those guys don't play their kind of the most important rookies in that they contributed to the short step situation that we have here. I don't know how much of it. Don't blame that on them. That's not their fault. I don't know how much of it was Yankees nutting in not wanting to spend more than they are. Sorry, Meg. It's caught on. I know. It's really a problem..

"Oh no. And that's because I think Josh Donaldson is a very good player, like a lot of Yankees fans. I loved having geo Rochelle there, but I acknowledge that Donaldson is better, but I can't ignore how that move was wrapped up in the rest of the Yankees moves as half season, which puzzled me. So it's hard to praise just adding Donaldson when that movement paved the way for the twins to sign Correa and so did the Yankees signing career and going out and getting her fillet and roark vet to improve the defense, but make the offense worse than the offense. It needed improvement, which I'll get to in a minute. So I will stick with making sure that all of the Yankees can play in Yankee Stadium and maybe they won't be able to in Toronto. We won't know until they actually visit and we find out which players are and are not vaccinated, but that could have been a real problem if say Aaron judge who did not necessarily answer with the most confidence about whether he was able to play can actually play in like a 150 games this year. Bobby, you got any moves other than convincing Adams too. They could exception father than dark money lobbying. Let me think on that one. Well, I for one am just happy we can be on a podcast where we can admit that Zach is a Yankees fan as opposed to being on the ringer MLB show and him pretending not to have a fandom. I don't know. I am a fan I am nowhere near the fan I used to be. I feel like I am midway through my evolution from being a die hard Yankees fan who would feel angry at night if they blew a game to acknowledging that I'm going to end up like Ben Lindbergh and no longer care. Been there. Is that so bad on the other side? No, I chose the kind of fillet in Donaldson trade. I don't really love the trade necessarily. I think it makes them marginally better, but I don't think that there was anything else that really rose above that in this Yankees off season. All right, well, lukewarm reviews at best on the Yankees off season. All right, strengths, weaknesses, Zach, you want to go again. So I think the ink is actually have a big, broad strength, and that's their pitching right now, the fan graphs, depth charts, have the Yankees at number one in both the bullpen and the starting rotation. And I don't know if I totally. Yeah, I don't know if I totally buy that in the rotation because I think it's perhaps undervaluing a depth and I would put like the brewers ahead of them, for instance, but having Garrett Cole is a really good place to start. I think Jordan Montgomery is incredibly underrated and Louis severino's back, Nestor Cortez was really good last year. And the bullpen is awesome as always they have not just Chapman but Lewis and Chad green and clay Holmes and just a lot of really solid pitchers. I think last year when the Yankees made their run in August and got them to the playoffs, it was really their pitching it wasn't the offense that led them. They were allowing like two to three runs in a lot of those games. And they might have to win that way again this year, but at least until players start getting hurt. They have the manpower to do so. I chose their lineup as their biggest strength still. I mean, I know that there are obvious holes and I know that the kind of Felipe trade and Donaldson trade doesn't necessarily fill all of them. And if you're a Yankees fan listening to this, you probably have all of the same complaints about how there's not a lot of lineup variability and there's not a lot of athleticism in the field and the defense is not great. And those are all still problems, but I mean, if they stay healthy, not perfectly healthy, but healthy by their own standards, I think judge Stanton Rizzo, that's not a lineup that I would want to face. Hicks is another one who's been unable to stay on the field entirely, but I still think that that's a lineup with a lot of power and Gallo was horrible last year after they traded for him for really bad long stretch. If he's back to getting on base over a larger sample of being on the Yankees for longer, I still think that he improves their lineup a lot. And I don't know, I am not that bullish on the rotation to be honest because I think it is very thin. I think they will be they will have back themselves into a Luis Castillo trade where they might get fleece for more than they want to if they want to stay neck and neck with some of the other teams in this division because as we talked about at the beginning, it's a really loaded division and as soon as you lose tae on if severino has any bumps in the road on his recovery, we're still in the, we're seeing how severino bounces back from pitching in spring training. You know, era of his recovery. So I love him. I think he's amazing. I think he has the potential to be like a Cy Young contender. If he's healthy and back to the form that he was in, but he hasn't pitched like that for two years. So I think there are just a lot about standing question marks about the rotation and I think it's weird that they weren't harder in on any of the starters in this market in the soft season. You shouldn't do what I'm about to do, right? So this is not good, like sabermetric practice. You shouldn't just add up all the wars and be like, they're going to be really great. But I will say if you're looking for confidence that you're assertion that the lineup is solid is right is that we currently have them projected for the second most batting war of any team in baseball behind just the Dodgers. So who again just remain really good and we have to talk about them all the time. So I think that you're assessment that they are going to hit well is warranted even if there are guys on here who might miss like big swaths of time with injury or what have you. This is a talented and stacked lineup. A lot of big beef boys. You can still do the jumbo package and the outfield. I'm thrilled. Yeah. Weaknesses, Zach. It's funny. Bobby's weakness was my strength. And I won't say that my weakness is his strength, but it's kind of similar. I do not trust their lineup depth. And that is both the players who will hit at the bottom of the lineup because they made a concerted effort to go after defense instead of offense, even though they ranked just tenth in runs last year, but also I don't know what happens when the players get injured. Josh Donaldson does not a Paragon of health Aaron hicks is not a Paragon of health, even last year, judge and Stanton combined for more than 1200 plate appearances, and the often still just ranked tenth in the American League in runs. And I don't know what happens if one of those two players who have considerable enter histories goes down for an extended period of time. They have diet Lemay who can go anywhere in the infield, and that's a strength, but they're back about feel the right now is Tim la Castro and Ben, you mentioned our editor in chief at the ringer Ben glucksman before. And one debate we have had both this off season and last is I still think they should bring back Brett Gardner. They don't really have anyone else to fill in in center field. If Aaron hicks gets hurt. And I think gardeners like the best option available. It's like Groundhog Day. Every April rolls around and it's like, okay, win spray gardener's phone gonna ring. Yep. It's his time. There's nobody else. There's nobody else available. And a lot of their top prospects are double a or lower, so they don't really have the triple-A depth either. If players go down, I just don't really know what happens comparing this team to Tampa, which we'll get to in a minute. I know the projections have Yankees ahead of them, but get to June and July and August, and I see Tampa having a much stronger roster because they have the reinforcements that the Yankees don't. Meg, how is how are the projections factoring in the fact that Kyle higashioka Homer's once per game for multiple month stretches? I was going to say, yeah, you're skipping to breakout pick here, but we actually entered a listener email about this episode 1807. Someone asked us, what if Kyle higashioka next season had a ten fan grafts war season.

"Just, you don't have the solution. We don't have the solution. It's a lot of. You look at the rays and the Red Sox. And it's, yeah, it's a lot of cohesiveness. Like, I think they play better as a team, which speaks to the culture of the Yankees which probably needs a change. But the players that over perform and exceed expectations by a mile have nothing to do with high bloom. Have nothing to do with the rays analytics. It just doesn't. It's lucky. I would say that the manager also plays a role in this by plugging these guys into the right spots. I think Alex core is use of KK Hernandez in the lineup, moving him all around has been brilliant and the bullpen. And the starters to just map it up and it's genius. Yeah. The Yankees always have a finite blueprint and then if they go off of it, it's all hell breaks loose. So that's a problem with it, but you're not going to tell me the personnel moves of these two franchises are what you're jealous of, because they're not. Because the Red Sox just traded Mookie bets and replaced him with three okay players who are once again outperforming expectations for reasons we don't know. The raise got rid of two fifths of their starting rotation that brought them to the World Series and they won a hundred games. So if the Yankees let half of their rotation go next year and then traded Aaron judge and brought in a bunch of dopes who are going to who have high spin rates and can ping Pong between the bullpen and the starting rotation and then you bring in an outfielder, hunter renfrow esque, who has a canon arm and right field is gonna bat two 50 and OPS 800, you're not gonna be happy with that. And that move is those moves are not gonna work out for the Yankees. It's just not gonna happen. So there needs to be a combination of the big ticket free agent signings and the moves around the edges, which once again, I think Brian cashman is largely done a good job of. And we'll talk about how this kind of comes from the top down. I understand Brian cashman doesn't do more with less, but he also does like just enough what he has to do with what he's given. And did you think in the middle of the Yankees at prime World Series window that they were going to cheap out and not go over the luxury tax, if they could win over the luxury tax this off season, they could add a number of other players. They could have had a completely different team and they could maybe they could still maybe be playing baseball right now. So Brian cashman did what he had to do with the financial constraints, but that's on you have to look at the bigger picture here. That's ownership's fault for not saying, okay, we can we can really do this. So, you know, let's spend an extra 25 million get hit with 10 million 5 $1 million tax bill and then it'll be all worth it when we're having the parade in November. But no, they didn't want to do that. Brian cashman did what he had to do. We own. He got a bunch of bullpen pieces that ended up work. Vandy Peralta worked out, clay Holmes worked out who also we get. We ended up being okay. Like, it was really fun for all the injuries the bullpen had the bullpen was fine. The lineup just simply didn't hit the defense was problematic. The voice in the Clubhouse was arguably the biggest issue..

"That was three plus of the most intense hours you'll ever experience. The Yankees should have probably lost it in the third and the fourth and definitely the 8th, they didn't get a runner two second, not past second, two second until Tyler wade in the 9. Thomas Karin, did did you think they were losing? And at what point did you think they were the closest to losing? Yeah, I thought I thought they were going to cough it up in the middle innings, but the wandy Peralta inning really was just so I was just like, great, okay. This is it and now they're going to have to come from behind and it's not going to happen. So we never do that. No raise. Against everybody else we actually do. It's weird, but not against the race. Yeah, I mean, heading into this when I wasn't entirely optimistic because for some reason, Michael walker and his 5 ERA just we can't hit him. I don't know what it is. I don't know if it's his pitch mix that fools these hitters. I don't know if it's a superior scouting report that the race have on the Yankees that he's able to navigate successfully and get through these guys. But the man, the man throws 56 pitches through 5 innings and you're just like, what? No runs one hit one walk. I don't get it. I don't get it. We have an assortment of all stars. Once again, in a must win game and nobody's doing anything. Completely silent once again embarrassing. But hey, you got to give props to where they're due. Jameson tion, injured ankle, three and a third inning. No one runs, did exactly what he was asked to do. Awesome. Aaron Boone, mostly manage this thing successfully, I'd say. I think the only thing people were kind of upset about was the clay Holmes Chad green switch. But he managed it like a playoff game. He used 6 pitchers went to low wise exactly when he needed to. Save the 9th for Chapman and ended up working out because we got the run in the bottom of the 9th and shut the door. I think the extra innings get a lot uglier. And I don't think I'm alone there, at least I hope I'm not alone there because that would mean that you're not really watching Yankees baseball this year. But yeah, I thought we were you've seen enough games like this like this in 2021 when they're not scoring when you simulate innings one through 5 and you're like, okay, just like take me to the 7 and let me know what the score is then. And it's zero zero or like it's one zero the opponent. And the onus is on the Yankees to score a run. Or vice versa, maybe the Yankees are up one, nothing in the 7th and the onus is on the Yankees to hold a very tight lead with a bullpen that hasn't entirely been its characteristic self for the entire year. So yeah, this was tailor made Yankees. This was TaylorMade Yankees loss, which is why everybody was on the edge of their seat. But I also got to give props to Yankee Stadium, man. I was watching that game on TV and they were into it every pitch. Let's go Yankees chance the entire time. Regardless of the situation, everybody on their feet. And that's the kind of energy you need in The Bronx..

"You can't deny he's been better lately. Chad green has been better lately. I'm not trusting Chad green, even one iota but I know I'll see him in a playoff game if they make it. He has been better for the past 7 or so innings. The fastball is working. There's more run on it because he's getting more rest. Well, why is it back? They're not getting back to back days with WiSA, that much was made clear in Thursday's game. I would have gone a little as a yesterday. If he's healthy enough to pitch he's healthy enough to throw back days after only throwing one inning on Wednesday, that's what I think. Clay Holmes. Not good in the Toronto series, but has been an absolute revelation since joining the New York Yankees. And oh, on September 20 something, they added three rested multi inning options off the IL, Luis severino who's shaking off all the rust already and is throwing high leverage. I'm not sure why he only threw one inning in the opener in one ending yesterday. I kind of wish he did two innings on Thursday if he's not going to be used back to back days anyway. He should be used for multiple innings. That's just what I think. Hashtag that's just what I think. But Luis severino, Michael king shows up, ready to throw either 40 pitches or a clean 15 in an ink. He's been great. He's got command of the curveball that apparently Corey Kluber taught him and you can tell, they have the same release point it looks identical. To make a Vermont hasn't even pitched yet, he's at the bottom of the pecking order, but he's also out there if you need somebody to cover multiple innings if something crazy happens this weekend. He hasn't even debuted yet..

"He kept showing us judge looking at the iPad and other people wandering around. I was like, we're standing. Please just show me. Tell me he's not getting treatment for an oblique problem. And then lo and behold, he came out to the on deck circle and then eventually hit a monster crazy through her home run, but don't forget the Gewehr shella home run too, which was almost an equally good job of hitting. Yeah, really good. Right? Like a curveball on the inside corner perfectly executed brought his hands in and looped it on a harsh liner over the left field wall. Also just a crazy thing that a player does when he's locked in. And Rochelle hasn't been locked in. But he does have shell in his name, so I guess like it's a Bronx Y thing.

And then you're gonna wake up on Tuesday, absolutely needing to win game one in Toronto in Toronto's Hungary. That gets a little scary. And lo and behold, the Yankees come back and win Sunday Night. And then you're like, well, the opener on Tuesday is cake. I mean, Toronto's gonna want it more than we do. We only need to do is win one of the three games in Toronto. Two out of three would be wonderful. Two out of three would render the Tampa Bay series, basically pointless, one out of three would help us survive. And then you get to that first game. It's three two. Gary sanches makes a huge play to get Bo Bichette at third, by the way, in clay Holmes is bad ending, where he did walk to after walking just one in 24 innings previously as a Yankee. As soon as Gary makes that play, you start to exhale a little bit. You see Chad green and the bullpen, you start to tense up again and stand hits at home or complete release. Now the Yankees keep kicking that cake game down the road. Theoretically, Wednesday with Derek Cole on the mound is a bit of a cake game. I'm gonna be a little bit less nervous, but you know what?.

"So then you bring the lefty in after a very efficient right hander who's very capable of pitching against left handed batters comes in and single right off the bat. You have run around first, then a walk. Runners on, oh no, then Alex verdugo's drag bunt. Runners on first and second. Then a wild pitch. Second and third, no outs. Fucking great. Yankees have a two one lead at this point. And to me, that was on. That was just clearly on boom. He got spooked by Alex Cory's little bullshit. He made and then and then he he was forced to make three pitching changes as opposed to just making zero, which just which would have been the answer. You'll let clay Holmes face Travis Shaw. If Travis Shaw goes yard, okay, dude. Like, am I will there be a sect of fans mad at Aaron Boone for that? But probably, will like most fans be met. No, you just saw what you just saw what clay Holmes did the inning prior, the collective, the collective, the response to that was why are we doing this? Why don't just leave them in? So then that happens and then the pop ups, then Chad green comes in, gets the one strike out another generous Joe west call, but everyone will get into Joe S in a second because Red Sox goes. Yes, we will. Joe Red Sox fans had no fucking problem when Eduardo Rodriguez got three free strikeouts on awful strike three calls, but then when a few calls don't go, I'd be mad too. But anyway, Joe west generous strike three called a KK Hernandez sits him down two outs. College forward comes to the plate. Chad green, susceptible the home run ball. What are we gonna do? How are your butt cheeks feeling? Very tight. And he got him to pop up to the third base side on the first pitch in foul territory inning over nope, clanks off DJ's glove can't make the play. How I don't know. Few pitches later, pops one up until shallow left field, Gallo on the run, who's gonna get it? It kind of looked like you didn't know who was gonna get it because no one was really moving, except Gallo was like going at 60% speed like if somebody else is gonna get this? Am I gonna get this? Yep, I'm gonna get this, I guess. Runs in clanks off the glove, bounces around and center field verdugo scores, Red Sox, take a three two lead schwarber thrown out at second. Great. So now we're talking about pitching changes that shouldn't have happened. Defensive gaffes that are now killing Chad green's confidence after he's managed to throw what ended up being his third clean frame in a row after all the shit that he's dealt.

"Davey Garcia though to me is still the most egregious example of this, just because people are being like, mom's the word around Davy, but people are pretty confident that the team made a tweak to him this off season to increase velocity that has thrown off everything about what he does. I agree with much of what Matt Blake is accomplished. You look at the guys, even the reclamation projects midseason that he's been able to turn around like clay Holmes and like all the starters who he taught to change up to. And like what he did with James and tayo. Clearly, there's something there, but whatever they did, whether it came from blaker with a came from somebody else, did Davey Garcia has missed entirely with what he is as a pitcher, not everybody needs high vlo to work. It's not like he showed us he was infallible at the end of 2020. He was actually quite bad when the season wrapped. That started Fenway blew his ERA up to 4.98. So it's not like we're talking about somebody who was perfect and couldn't handle a little bit of tweaking. But then again, if you're trying to coax max villo at a DV Garcia, then you've lost the plot a little bit. So he is, of those players, the most lost, but you've certainly ended up with a situation where they tried to shop Luke voigt at the deadline. He started for two weeks and proved they shouldn't have done that. And then he got benched, and now he looks again like a guy who they're gonna have to convince someone to take him if they want someone to pay full price for him. The better solution is keeping it. The better solution is Davy Garcia being good, but you're certainly talking about two players who are less valuable than they were in both mid August and at the end of 2020. And that's thanks to the way that the Yankees have handled them. Yeah, and I think that I think that obviously bad decisions mostly all around here..

"Everyone in the bullpen is tired. They supplement the bullpen with some like, I don't know, like clay Holmes has been interesting so far. We like it, we enjoy it. Other than clay homes that they ditched Luis sessa and attached Justin Wilson who's terrible to get that done. And that cleared up payroll that they ultimately never used. So that's been kind of a bummer right now because they could use arms. If not to be effective, just to soak up innings because what they are doing is calling up Nick Nelson who's one of the worst pitchers in baseball history and makes me think every time he takes the mound that I too could be a major leaguer because there's no threshold for failure. His stuff is look, is Nick Nelson's stuff better than mine? Yes. I don't throw 97. But if I blow up and can't find home plate and like throw a bundt into right field and do whatever Nick Nelson has been doing and the next day, my managers like keep at it. They're like, we're gonna send you down, but we're gonna bring you right back up. Like the fact that it makes me think that there's no rules. I could just be on the roster repeatedly. But did cashman fortify the bullpen? Jury's out. I'm not sure. But he needed to find left handed power. Got Anthony Rizzo pulled that off of the horn. Got Joey Gallo. And so none of us were ready to say this team is like this team is near perfect just supplemented with a couple of lefties. Nobody, nobody thought this Yankee team was perfect. But everybody knew if you're gonna make moves, get lefty power. He got to and he didn't really sacrifice much of anything to do it. The Red Sox had a more golden opportunity ahead of them as far as I can tell. And so I think you're right that look high in bloom had a plan and we all know what the plan was and this year sort of defied the plan. And that's great. But you can only, you know, it almost feels like he was what people are telling Red Sox fans to be. People are people are saying like, you won four titles in under 20 years..

"Doesn't. And so this is the part of the podcast where I just do want to show some love to some people who have been extremely impressive. The Yankees are going on this winning streak, by the way. And the Orioles are not, you know, top level upper Echelon competition. I understand that. But it's not easy to pitch to a major league team. The Orioles hit, the Orioles hit the rays all weekend long. They lost those games because the bullpen and the rotation are both terrible. And the rays came back in the later innings repeatedly, but the Orioles Homer, like everybody else. The Orioles have major league hitters, the orals have Cedric Mullins who's having one of the best offensive seasons in baseball. The Yankees pitching staff without Garrett Cole, Jordan Montgomery and Domingo Hermann, were able to shut them down this week. They had to go with Luis heel who deserves all the credit in the world and has yet to allow an earned run in two starts in his major league career. The Iggy had to do with Nestor Cortez junior, the Yankees had to do it with a full bullpen game against the Seattle Mariners who are in the wild card race right behind them. A game started by wandy Peralta. They had to do with androgyny, who we've shown a lot of hate two through two starts, but who gave up four runs through two innings and then ended up going 6 innings on Saturday and game where the team desperately needed him to. I believe 9 strikeouts, overall a fine start. The Orioles say what you will about him, they can hit, you can't say the same like you can't get angry and discount the Mariners games. The Mariners have battled all year long, even when their front office tried to dissect them and turn them apart and trade their closer to a division rival. That's a wild card contender. That's a team right behind you in the standings and a split would have left these two teams basically even up. The beat them without their offensive full capacity. The Mariners have a good bullpen, a good solid young offense, a good rotation that you took three out of four with very inferior pitching options on the table. So I don't want to hear it about the Orioles really, but I definitely don't want to hear it about the Mariners. And you got to give Louis heel, again, two shutouts to start his major league career coming off a bad start at the triple-A level. He looks uniquely poised. He spins that fastball. We were talking about the other day in much the same way that Garrett Cole does. It's very interesting. Stephen writings and clay Holmes in the 6th and 7th innings of these games, I already trust both of these people. Obviously, in close games, relievers are going to have trouble on occasion. They have done nothing to prove to me that they don't deserve to be trusted. Heel ridings and homes have all shown me more than something. They are arms I already trust to lengthen the rotation and deep in the pen..

"Pretty good deal. It's like the Yankees getting all the rival teams to pay for all the players they got at the deadline. You know that? Cheap, cheaper than you think it's gonna be. It's not so bad. The inks of three lefties who are being paid for by their old teams at this moment, although one of them is currently out of the lineup, Anthony Rizzo, the latest Yankee hit the COVID IL can't say I didn't see this one coming. You're not lucky with the timing, you're never lucky with the timing. He looked to be slumping a little bit prior to this news breaking. He will miss ten days. He will miss the double header against the Red Sox. It's all quite frustrating. But as much as we love Rizzo and we need him back as soon as possible, this is why you hold on to Luke Voight, Luke Voight has struggled this season. He's been trying to do too much at times. He is not a lefty, I understand. But the downgrade from Rizzo to Voight, who was the home run champion last year is not the same as the downgrade from Rizzo to Chris gittens, who we also like, but is not exactly a guy with the same pedigree and look, some people have carte blanche. As soon as they become Yankees, they're almost immune to criticism. Rizzo is one of those guys because of what he did in his first series and the winning that has followed his acquisition. He has not quite been as flaming in the games that followed the Marlin series as he was in that initial burst. He changes the depth of the lineup with the lefty presence he provides, but it's not like the winds and the Mariner series and oriole series were with a peak version of Rizzo. The Yankee stepped up in many different ways to wrap the O series. The Yankees barely hit in the Mariner series, but found their bats at opportune times. Joey Gallo did the job in that first game. The second one was, you know, the number of opportunity squandered in later innings before Brett Gardner finally came through. The Yankees tied that game in the 8th on walk, walk hit by pitch, sack fly by judge, who has struggled in higher leverage appearances this year. You know, it doesn't feel good that the first loss in a long stretch was with Rizzo on the shelf. And it definitely doesn't feel good that he's missing that Red Sox double header. The 80s are still trying to track down the Red Sox, but has Boston struggles more and, you know, as the Yankees succeed with a pitching first opportunity to continue to succeed and with Joey Gallo in the lineup in bats returning at various stages over the next couple of weeks and just the team feeling different in its entirety and more inspired and feeling like a team, that knows it can win now using these different names like clay Holmes, like Steven ridings, like Jonathan Luisa, and the closers roll, didn't even mention the role as Chapman's gone, with elbow inflammation..
