Unfortunately  Yankees   have the new Mendoza.  Stanton was  so  feeble  today  that he was congratulated  by the whole  Yank dugout for a walk! I know  he has hit  a  471 ft HR this year,  but he should  be ashamed  of himself  at age 30-31--- is a DH for  $350  million.

Oh BTW his BA is about .180.  I have many in agreement--he was booed  in 1st  game  in Yankee Stadium. I continue to  maintain that  he cant take the pressure of playing in NYC.  But nobody else will  take  his contract.

PS-I sound  like a Stanton hater--but no just a sports and disappointed Yankee fan.

Stanton looks worse than ever--  down to about 160  BA.  Looks as bad swinging as I would.  Too expensive to be dumped.

Stanton, the consummate streak hitter, is on fire at the moment.

Right-he really hits mistakes & has tremendous power. But would 've been no match for Gibson, Drysdale, Seaver etc etc  with their stuff.

Not too many were matches for Gibson, Drysdale, and Seaver.  Grin But I agree with you on Stanton.

mike-he kills straight fastballs but has a lot of trouble with sliders, cutters etc. It sounds like I dont like him --but i root for him.just being honest. Talking about honest just saw the clip of Altuve not letting his teammates  tear off his  jersey after his HR a couple yrs  ago off Chapman. Can u say buzzer?

DDW,

I guess I'm emotionally neutral on Stanton - neither any particular like or dislike. Over paid for sure but by far and away not the only bad long-term mega deal. Carl Pavano or Josh Hamilton anybody? Today's market for talent is what it is and owners pay what they pay and players that can get it get it. Nothing really wrong about that.

Our boy has another mysterious muscle strain.

What will  Dodgers do with Pujols?  Muncy hits leftys, Pujols cant play D,  so prob wil just  DH in against AL teams.

Everyone in press is saying Albert's Dodger signing is a great move. I just don't see it. Maybe as a DH for an also-ran AL team that would like to fill a few more seats when that becomes possible later this season.

He left Angels bec wouldn't play full time w/Ohtani. They say he'll  mentor the younger Dodgers.  ALsoI wonder where Bellinger is?

More and more Yankee fans agree that he's a  bust.  [Many posts]  Foe example-this wkend big 3 games with Red Sox--zero for  ten with 5  strikeouts.

Signing superstars to massive contracts often just doesn't work out. For either party. Stanton is one of many. Just a few others:

- The Angels didn't get what they were expecting in Pujols or Rendon
- The Nationals have gotten like 3 starts out of Strasburg since he re-upped severa years ago
- Bryce Harper isn't really a superstar for the Phils, merely a very good player
- The Davis guy in Baltimore who hit 50+ HRS some years back hasn't hit .180 since

Let's not forget that other Hamilton fella with the Moreno Angels. Pavano - Yankees. And the list goes on and on.

Doc,

You really like him, don't you?  Grin

One of my recent most unfavorites, watching play often with the Angels, was Luis Valbuena, who came up as the proverbial good field no hit utility infield type, but then remade himself into the modern launch angle obsessed, all or nothing pseudo HR hitter, irrespective of the count or game situation. Trouble was, although he had a little pop, capable of 20 HRs in 300-400 AB's per season, his ceiling was around .220, when not flirting with "Memories of Mendoza".

Has Steinbrenner come back to life? Gallo & Rizzo are going to each break Babe's record.  Still need a good starter. Holmes isnt enough.

RE Stanton--Boone was quoted on ESPN-not YES-- as saying "Sometimes Stanton swings like he's  never played before."  WOW

As  I said before-overpaid,  hypochondriac, and  has NY itis  -the Ed Whitson disease.

Rizzo is rock solid although probably in slow decline stage. Gallo is all or nothing HR hitter in the mold of Kingman or Dunn. However, he is reportedly a fine OF= which could help some. The fact that NYY were missing lefties but now have some for the still short porch in RF should play big. All that aside, the fat that their starting rotation is merely average, as it has been for some years now, i.e. subpar for championship contending clubs, remains the biggest obstacle to peace in our time (and maybe a Yankee championship. Baffling as to why Cashman has not been bolder in this domain.  Also, the pen, while still better than average, ahs deteriorated markedly from it speak a few years ago.
