A few quick notes:

Yesterday’s ticket stub: a jinx?

It’s gonna be a hot one today in the Bronx. Clear skies and a high near ninety degrees should make this a sweaty one. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05pm on YES and WFAN. It’s also on the MLB Network if you’re out of market.

    Stanton is heading to IL and will be re-evaluated after 10 days. The injury report does change in the span of few hours…

    Its amazing that Cashman could’ve solved the pitching issues in August of 2017 by just convincing Hal that Verlander was the missing piece. Instead, we’ve dealt with the likes of Gray, Happ, Lynn and now Paxton.

    It’d be like a rich person going out and passing on a new luxury car, for “reasons”, and always buying an out of warranty used car then being surprised when it breaks down. But instead of learning his lesson.

    Or for us normal folk, going to buy a nice pair of dress shoes, but instead of spending the 100 bucks on a decent pair of shoes, going to Wal-Mart and buying the $35 dollar pair of dress shoes and then being shocked that they fell apart after a month.

    I can’t deny Cashman’s ability to build a lineup, but he’s shown to be shockingly bad with starting pitching over the last 19 years. I’m sick and tired of watching other team’s aces shut down Cashman’s “super lineups”.

    Hearing Jack Curry ask “how does a starting pitcher even being to handle this lineup?” after they got EE annoyed me to no end. I don’t know Jack, how did teams pitch to Murderers Row and Cano in 06? Why did our Super Infield with Jeter, Cano, Tex and A-Rod only win one ring? How did the Red Sox pitch to our super lineup last year?

    What annoys me even more is that this is all gonna end up with Frazier being dealt for like MadBum or Stroman, when a similar arm in Keuchel could’ve been had just for money.
