As a forced Yankees fan this year and last I watch almost every night. Their offense is brutal and starting pitch is average at best outside cole and Nestor. They pose zero concern come playoffs. Only way they will compete is if Stanton comes back and gets hot and judge stays hot. Outside them their record the past month is exactly what they are. Cashman has built a terrible team and has made terrible trade deadline moves.

Montas? Bettendi? Seriously. Trading Montgomery for an injured outfielder when they outfield already was underachieving and dealing with injuries is mind boggling.


Somebody is forcing you to be a Yankees fan?
Blink twice if you're being held against your will.

Otherwise, Rule #1 on why you're rooting for the Yankees.

WTF has been wrong with the Blue Jays?

George
Vlad Jr
Gurriel
Chapman
Merrifield
Bichette

Those are all all stars and they're only 5 games over .500.

No wonder Montoya was canned
Their starting pitching is all over the place outside of Manoah.

They lost 9 out of 10 in July that got their manager fired. But then before tonight they had lost 9 of their last 12, but nobody noticed much because the Yankees were also in free-fall.

Springer is 5 for 5. Can you imagine if he was our CFer?

Well clearly we're not going to accept that as the extent of the answer.

Bennedetti is hitting .213 with 0 HR and 3 RBI since being traded to the Yankees.

Meanwhile Joey Gallo is hitting .261 with 3 HR and a 1.042 OPS since the Yankees shipped him out to SoCal.

So tell us what the players think of the Astro's? They hate them or respect them for taking the fall for the whole league and keeping the Yankee name safe?

the Frankie Montas trade is not looking good either.

3 starts...14 innings...14 earned runs

I loved watching Springer but he's too accident prone to pay big and long and he's not a pitcher.

speaking of the Yankees...

somewhat quietly Giancarlo has missed 39 games this year.

he might come off the IL next week. So at most he'll play about 115 games in the regular season

Isn't that good for him?

Steroids have turned him into glass.

Love George, and I'll always be a fan. He is forever an Astro in my book.

That said, I'm glad the club did not sign him to the contract he got with the Jays.

In two years, that contact will be an albatross, especially because George plays all out and tends to get hurt. It will only get worse with age.

Stanton has been a Angels/Pujols-level flop for the Yankees.

Came to them after his epic 59 HR, 132 RBI MVP season with Miami in 2017

2018: 38 HR, 100 RBI but only hit .266 and struck out 211 times for $25 million

2019: Missed 144 games, made $26m

2020: Season was only 60 games long and he still missed more than half of it. Played in 23 games for $26m

2021:Played 139 games, but failed to drive in 100 runs (35 HR, 97 RBI, .273) for $29m

2022: Has missed 40 games. Power is there (24 HR) but hitting .228, the lowest average of his career for $29m

Escalator to $32m for 2023-2025.

I'd love for them to pile on and sign MVP Judge to a record deal.

Wonder if it was easier to for him to excel on the A's when there really were no expectations. Now he has the bright lights of the big city on him.
