“METS Fans LOVE Being MISERABLE!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #72)

The Phillies hired Joe Girardi.

Apparently Mets’ Fans really, Really, REALLY wanted Joe Girardi as their manager.

The way Mets’ fans reacted, you’d think their world was coming to an end….being stripped and sold for parts.

Mets Fans: Your organization will eventually hire the wrong manager, and you will eventually be miserable, but let it happen first.

Pre-emptive misery is dumb.

“YOU’RE FIRED Mickey Callaway!!” (DTS Podcast – #60)

The Mets have finally fired the most inexperienced manager in the history of Major League Baseball.

Mickey Callaway will now spend his days searching the help wanted ads every morning….or afternoon….or evening — he seems lazy.

He will, however, get paid to not manage the Mets next season.

Yankees Fall In Line — Hire Aaron Boone As Next Manager

aaron-boone

There’s nothing worse than being ordinary.

Following others around, rather than thinking for yourself. You know, there used to be a time when the Yankees were trendsetters. They did what they wanted, when they wanted, how they wanted. Those days are gone….

Hiring Aaron Boone proves that. Yes, that Aaron Boone. On Friday night, the one-time Yankee hero was named Manager of the New York Yankees. See, MLB teams don’t want Managers who can think for themselves. They want robot, yes-men, who simply nod and smile as they hand the General Manager’s lineup card to the home plate umpire. A-A-Ron fits that description perfectly.

In today’s MLB, Managers must ‘toe the company line’. Instincts and gut feelings should be left where they’re born. Managers must be willing to work for 10 cents on the dollar and MUST NOT have experience. Allow me to repeat that:

MLB MANAGERS MUST HAVE ZERO PREVIOUS MANAGING EXPERIENCE!!!!

Don’t believe me?? Click here to see the list of MLB Managers (this list hasn’t been updated yet to account for Boone’s hiring). Boone will be the 6th manager hired, this year alone, despite having ZERO coaching experience. To the new-age, analytic baseball fan, this is hip, cool, and exciting. To the baseball purist (like myself), this produces vomit in the brain.

Analytics, and his willingness to implement them, is another reason Mr. Boone got the job:

“There’s a lot to consider, and there’s a lot of great information out there that is instilled into the game today. And it’s I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager. We are an extension of the front office and a part of the front office,” Boone added, “and how we gather information and get it in the hands of the players is a very important part of the job nowadays.”

George Steinbrenner is currently turning over in his grave….

Gone are the days of Billy Martin. Of Tommy Lasorda. Of Lou Piniella.

Here are the days of Alex Cora. Of Gabe Kapler. Of Aaron Boone.

I’ve loved the game of baseball for as long as I can remember. Never did I imagine a time when I’d grow sick of it. Unfortunately, that day, is rapidly approaching. I don’t know how many more times I can watch a manager pull a starting pitcher from the game after allowing just 1 hit through 60 pitches. Ohhhhhh, some made-up, analytics, computer program told you a pitcher’s success rate drops when they face a batting order for the 3rd time?!?! Well, why don’t we just have the computer come out to the mound and pitch the rest of the game then?!?!

RIDICULOUS!!

How about, the manager combines analytics, with his eyeballs???? Imagine a world, where analytics are ignored, and Dallas Braden throws a perfect game. Oh wait, that happened, on May 9th, 2010. In a world, where analytics are the only rule, that never happens….

Joe Girardi Given His Walking Papers

AP YANKEES GIRARDI BASEBALL S BBA FILE USA TX

Please pack your things and go. Thank you for your hard work and commitment to our organization.

Now seriously….GET OUT!!

Such is the tale of woe for Joe Girardi. Thursday afternoon, the Yankees confirmed Joe Girardi would not return next season. Girardi’s 4-year, $16 million contract came to an end this year.

Girardi’s Managerial Record:

  • Coached 10 Seasons
  • 910-710 Record (.562 Winning Percentage)
  • 6 Postseason Appearances
  • 1 World Series  

Joe Girardi has been a very good manager for the past decade. He managed 1 All-Star Game (2010), and finished in the top-6 of Manager of the Year voting every year (2009-present). Despite seasons plagued with injury, and enduring a rebuilding year, Girardi extended the Yankees’ streak of consecutive winning seasons to 25.

That’s insane by the way.

He also leaves behind a solid, young team poised to play plenty of October baseball for years to come.

Girardi released a statement via his agent, Steve Mandell:

“With a heavy heart, I come to you because the Yankees have decided not to bring me back. I’d like to thank the Steinbrenner family for believing in me and giving me this wonderful opportunity. I would like to thank Brian Cashman and his staff for hiring me and always trying to improve the team,’’

New York Yankees’ General Manager, Brian Cashman, released a statement of his own:

“I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organization. Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration, and we’ve decided to pursue alternatives for the managerial position.”

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Dave’s Take:

I DON’T LIKE THIS MOVE!!

There have been conflicting reports and speculation as to why Joe Girardi won’t be returning to the Yankees. Some say Girardi wants to spend more time with his family. Some say they mutually parted ways. Some say Girardi resigned.

All false.

Joe Girardi was fired on Thursday. There’s no need to sugarcoat it. No need to get fancy with our words. No need to say, “no, no, they just didn’t extend his contract….”

I’m so confused as to what that means.

If it were his decision, Girardi would have continued managing the Yankees. I believe, Brian Cashman finally got his way. I don’t think Cashman was ever part of the Girardi fan club. Cashman wants to be in control. He simply wants someone who wants to be controlled. Girardi is not that guy.

Cashman, who is Yankees’ owner Hal Steinbrenner’s right hand man, drew a line in the sand Thursday. There may have even been an ultimatum thrown in there too. And Cashman won. Sorry Joe.

And so, we naturally progress:

Who will be the next manager of the New York Yankees??

I don’t know. Which is another reason why I dislike this decision. If there was a great manager waiting on deck, or you already hand-picked someone to succeed Girardi, I’d feel better than I do right now. Instead, rumblings bring us names like Kevin Long and Tony Pena.

Candidates: 

In House

  • Tony Pena (1st Base Coach)
  • Rob Thomson (Bench Coach)
  • Larry Rothschild (Pitching Coach)
  • Al Pedrique (Triple-A Coach)

Outside The Organization

  • Kevin Long
  • Don Mattingly
  • John Farrell
  • Trey Hillman
  • A-Rod

Your guess is as good as mine. In watching Yankees’ games over the past few years, I have a funny feeling about Larry Rothschild. He’s 63 years old, so that may not be the direction the Yankees want to head.

Imagine a world where A-Rod is the manager of the Yankees….

The Fine Line Between Success And Failure

yankees lose

New York has seen better days.

In a baseball town that’s often World Series or bust, the 2017 Yankees have caused mixed emotions. Today, there is only 1 acceptable emotion: SORROW.

But as the dust settles on the season, we can ask the question from the blackboard:

Was this season a success for the Yankees??  

Many have grown accustom to winning, so their answer is an emphatic NO. Others look at the expectations prior to the season and laud this season as an overwhelming success.

Can’t it be both??

At the start of the season, the Yankees were projected to win 83 games. That’s not a playoff bound team. They didn’t know what they had in right field. They didn’t know they had an ace pitcher. And they didn’t know they’d be 1 game away from the World Series. So, how could anyone possibly be disappointed with the result of this season?? Spoiled, entitled, a**hole Yankees’ fans, that’s how.

YES, I’m a Yankees’ fan. My entire life. I’m just one of the good ones.

Humility goes a long way. Especially when you often find yourself hoisting the trophy. This was not the Yankees’ year. The same reason they overcame adversity to reach Game 7 of the ALCS, is the same reason they faltered in Game 7 of the ALCS. They’re young, and unexperienced, and naïve.

If I don’t know how big the moment is, how can the moment be too big?? 

The Houston Astros are a very good team. They deserve to be in the World Series. 1 different hop or different 1 bounce, and the Yankees could be in the World Series. That’s what it means to be in a Game 7. Rather than scrutinize every mistake made in the ALCS, oversimplify we shall….

ALCS in a nutshell:

Yankees’ offense in New York: 19 runs in 3 games

Yankees’ offense in Houston: 3 runs in 4 games

That’s it. That’s the whole story. That’s all she wrote.

This oversimplifying stuff is fun. Let’s try it again:

Looking through April 1st (start of the season) glasses: Huge Success

July 31st (trade deadline) glasses: That’s About Right

October 18th (Yankees’ 3-2 ALCS lead) glasses: Complete Failure  

We (Yankees’ fans) shouldn’t have tantrums about not winning a World Series since 2009. Just think — we could be Mets’ fans. But, we also shouldn’t count our chickens before they hatch. Having a solid young core doesn’t guarantee sustained success. The ‘Baby Bombers’ may never win a World Series. Or, they can win 4.

Only time will tell….

 

Was the Yankees’ season a success?? Was it a failure?? Post your thoughts in the comment section below.

Tanaka Shows Emotion For The 1st Time..Ever — Shuts Out Astros In Game 5

tanaka game 5

2, 2, 1, 4, and 0. No, that’s not my ATM pin number, it’s the number of runs scored by the Houston Astros in the ALCS. While the storyline continues to revolve around Aaron Judge and the Yankees’ potent offense, the pitching staff continues to be overshadowed.

Yes, the bats needed to wake up, as they were limited to 1 run each of the first 2 games, but they wouldn’t be leading the ALCS 3 games to 2 without stellar pitching. Everyone knows how dominant their bullpen is, however, they’ve sported the best starting rotation so far this postseason. The only team who has performed near the level of the Yankees is the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Heading into this season, the Yankees’ starting rotation was littered with question marks. How would Luis Severino perform in his 1st full season as a starter?? How much does CC Sabathia have left in the tank?? Can Michael Pineda stay healthy for an entire season?? Who will be the 5th starter??

The Yankees overachieved this season, so the majority of these questions were answered in the affirmative, however, they did falter at times. Pineda was shut down for the year in early July. Jordan Montgomery, who filled the 5th starter role to perfection, ran into an innings limit. And the 1 part of the rotation the Yankees assumed would be the foundation, Masahiro Tanaka, turned out to be the least consistent piece of the puzzle.

Come October, throw everything out the window. Except for my TV. Don’t throw that out the window. Postseason baseball breathes new life into the air. Some rise to the occasion, some succumb to the pressure. The Yankees have risen.

Last night, in a crucial Game 5, Masahiro Tanaka, pitched an absolute gem.

CAN I GET A SHUTOUT HERRREEEEE?!?!

Tanaka’s Day: 7 innings, 3 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts

The Astros have picked a bad time to go ice cold. 9 runs in 5 games is not going to cut it. Again, this is a testament to the Yankees’ pitching because the Astros are a powerful offense.

Here are the Astros’ offensive rankings in the regular season:

Hits (1,581) – 1st

Runs (896) – 1st

Home Runs (238) – 2nd

Batting Avg. (.282) – 1st

RBI’s (854) – 1st 

Luis Severino will look to keep those powerful bats at bay for 1 more game. Despite being pulled early from his last start, after getting struck with a ball, Severino will take the hill Friday night against Justin Verlander. Verlander mowed down the Yankees in Game 2, so the Yankees will be out for revenge. Hopefully they jump on Verlander early. He’s a rare breed that gets stronger as a game goes on.

Catch all the action tomorrow on FS1 @ 8:08 P.M. EST. When the Yankees win, they’ll return to their 1st World Series since 2009.

LET’S GO YANKEES!!

Score Prediction: Yankees 5, Astros 3

Yanks Yank Game 4 From Astros

yankees-astros-2017-american-league-championship-series

Now that was a baseball game!! Game 4 of the ALCS between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros has been the best game of the postseason — so far.

Like I said yesterday, hits are contagious. Until the bottom of the 7th inning, a lonely single by Todd Frazier was the Yankees’ only hit. And then, THIS happened. Aaron Judge launched a majestic, 427-foot home run to straight away center field. Not only was this home run a thing of beauty, it was crucial. It got the Yankees on the board, bringing the score to 4-1. It got the crowd going. And most importantly, it forced A.J. Hinch to pull Lance McCullers Jr. McCullers, who 24 hours earlier didn’t know he would start Game 4, was spectacular. The Yankee fan in me wants to thank Astros Manager, A.J. Hinch, for his quick trigger. Letting the horrid Astros’ bullpen loose was the beginning of their end….

Chris Devenski was the 1st victim. He surrendered a triple, a sacrifice fly, and a walk. Devenski was promptly pulled for Joe Musgrove, who got out of the 7th inning unscathed. Little did he know, the 7th inning was just the appetizer. The main course was set for the bottom of the 8th inning. A combination of Musgrove, Ken Giles (the Astros’ closer), and Luke Gregerson allowed the Yankees to bat around, bringing 10 batters to the plate. What started with an innocent single by Todd Frazier, ended with a 2-rbi double by Gary Sanchez. And just like that, the 2-run Yankees’ deficit turned into a 2-run surplus.

If only someone had predicted a final score of 6-4….

Yes.

That’s what they call shameless self-promotion.

While it’s refreshing to see the bats come to life, it shouldn’t overshadow Sonny Gray’s pitching performance. Gray, the forgotten man, hadn’t pitched in 12 days. That is NOT easy. Like Hinch, Joe Girardi had a quick trigger with his starter, pulling Gray after just 85 pitches.

Sonny Gray’s Day: 5 innings, 1 hit, 2 runs (1 earned), 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts

You couldn’t ask for a better performance, in those circumstances, from a guy who hadn’t pitched in nearly 2 weeks. Part of Gray’s success can be tied to Austin Romine getting his 1st start of the postseason at catcher. Gray’s numbers are significantly better with Romine than Gary Sanchez. However, the Romine experiment needn’t last more than 1 day. He’s useless with the bat, and looked rusty with the glove. An ill-timed catcher’s interference didn’t help his cause either. Toss Sanchez back behind the plate, and slot Chase Headley in as the DH. Headley’s bat is finally heatin’ up. Headley, who is historically streaky, looks to be trending in the right direction.

Ride the wave Girardi!! Don’t fight your instincts. I know the robot in you hasn’t taken COMPLETE control of your body — yet.

Game 5 is coming at you today with another awkward 5:08 P.M. EST start. Tune in to FS1 for all the action, as Dallas Keuchel and Masahiro Tanaka will climb the hill. Saying Keuchel owns the Yankees is an understatement. He hasn’t allowed a home run against the Yankees in 217 innings. That trend, gets bucked, today.

Score Prediction: Yankees 3, Astros 2

Yankees C.C. (Complete Comeback)

cc

In CC we trust!!

In a decisive Game 5, the Yankees turned to 37-year old, Carsten Charles Sabathia Jr. Sabathia, now a crafty veteran, channeled his former self. Sabathia, and his left arm, were tremendous, striking out 9 in 4 and 1/3 innings. Notoriously a slow-starter, he wasted no time, striking out the first 2 batters he faced. He kept hitters off balance with his swooping slider and surprised Indians’ hitters with his sneaky fastball.

Do you know what the most impressive part was?? He outdueled AL CY Young favorite, Corey Kluber, twice. For the 2nd straight outing, Kluber was ordinary. After lasting just 2 and 2/3 innings in Game 2, he was destined for just 3 and 2/3 innings on Wednesday. It’s hard to explain. Kluber is one of the best pitchers in the world. But hey, I’m not losing any sleep over it….

Kluber was tagged not once, but twice, by Didi Gregorious. Didi connected on a solo home run in the 1st inning. And struck gold again in the 3rd inning with a 2-run home run. It was DD and CC to the rescue.

Too corny??

Sorry.

Following their crushing defeat in Game 2, winning the ALDS was all the more impressive. These young, “baby-bombers” showed grit and resiliency, punching their way out of a corner. After completing the comeback Wednesday night (5-2), the 2017 Yankees became just the 7th team to comeback from an 0-2 deficit to win a Divisional Series.

If I had told you Aaron Judge would go 1 for 20 in this series, but they’d win, you would have called me names I can’t write on my website. Aaron Judge is an impressive, young man. He’s humble. He’s a great athlete. And he hits baseballs really, really far. But he now holds an unenviable record. Judge’s 16 strikeouts in the ALDS are the most by any player, in any playoff series, in MLB history. No es bueno.

Judge mashes mediocre fastballs (under 94 mph), and has a great eye (127 walks). However, he struggles against fastballs 95 mph or faster and strikeouts far too much (208). Pitchers usually raise his eye level with the ‘high-heat’, and then drop the hammer with a low-and-away breaking ball. If the Yankees are going to have a chance against the Houston Astros in the ALCS, Judge will need to lay off those nasty breaking balls. He should walk down to 1st base over and over again, and set the table for Gary Sanchez in this series. This will force opposing pitchers to serve up inside fastballs to Judge later in the series. Then, my fellow Yankee fans can bust out their telescopes to track Judge Moonshots….

Again, I’m not rooting against my team. I simply call it like I see it.

Severino Overpowers Indians — 2 Down, 1 To Go

severino

We learned a lot about Luis Severino Monday night. After a pitching performance to forget in the AL Wild Card Game, Severino put his best foot forward in Game 4 of the ALDS. Game 4 was the 2nd elimination game for the Yankees in as many days. Win, and force a Game 5. Lose, and go home.

“Why don’t you just go home? That’s your home! Are you too good for your home?!”

Severino: 7 innings, 4 hits, 3 runs, 1 walk, and 9 strikeouts

Severino’s fastball was live, touching 100 mph a handful of times. His changeup regularly registered at or above 90 mph (which is insane). And his slider was sharp and consistent. Severino’s two blemishes came in the form of the long ball. Carlos Santana, who is giving everyone fits, tagged him for a 2-run home run in the 4th inning, and Roberto Perez hit a solo home run in the 5th inning. The other two hits were harmless singles by Jay Bruce and Michael Brantley.

On the other hand, the Yankees’ lineup did what they couldn’t do in Game 1. They got to Trevor Bauer, forcing him from the game after just 2 and 2/3 innings. Bauer was pitching on 3 days rest, and it showed. The Yankees put up 4 runs in the 2nd inning. What started with an error by the 3rd baseman, Giovany Urshela, ended with a 4-run, 2-out rally.

ALERT THE AUTHORITIES!! There was an Aaron Judge sighting during this rally. Judge recorded his 1st hit of the series, cracking a 2-run double to left field. Believe it or not, the key to Judge’s at-bat in the 2nd inning was being fed a steady diet of curveballs. I know Judge has been struck out 174,000 times on curveballs, but hear me out. Bauer, who has gone to his masterful curveball 36% of the time in this series, threw Judge 4 curveballs in a row. While the first 2 dropped in for strikes, the next 2 were in the dirt. This allowed Judge to adjust his eye level and drive a ball later in the at-bat.

While Girardi and his bullpen have been a topic of conversation throughout this series, he pushed the right buttons Monday night. Girardi brought in Dellin Betances in the 8th inning, but promptly yanked him after Betances walked the first 2 batters. Without the 103-mph services of Aroldis Chapman, Tommy Kahnle came in. Kahnle was lights out!! 2 innings, 0 hits, 5 strikeouts, on just 22 pitches. 7-3 lead protected. WOW!! Talk about slamming a door.

When 1 door closes, another opens (or something like that). The Yankees will walk through that door, in Cleveland. It all comes down to Wednesday. Game 5. All-or-nothing. The dangerous, Houston Astros await the victor in the ALCS.

Catch all the action on FS1, Wednesday night, @ 7:00 P.M. EST.

Projected Starters: Corey Kluber vs. CC Sabathia

The Yankees lineup tagged Kluber for 6 runs in Game 2. That won’t happen again. The same way Yankees’ fans knew Severino wasn’t going to get shelled in consecutive outings, Indians’ fans know their ace. As for the Yankees, I trust CC, but it’s all hands on deck.

While my heart is rooting for the Yankees 100%, my mind doesn’t love their chances in Game 5.

Prediction: Indians 4, Yankees 3 (10 innings)

I’d pay good money to be wrong on this one….
