    Sanchez Rules

    Posted by on August 24th, 2016 · Comments (8)

    I hope that the Yankees, the media, and, the fans, learned from that Joba Chamberlain experience and don’t put expectations on Gary Sanchez, going forward, that are going to impossible to meet.

    I mean…if he plays 130 games next year and hits 20 homeruns and bats .280, PLEASE, be happy with THAT.

    I am about half way done with this one and have been enjoying it. Very candid and totally unfiltered. If you like listening to ball players talk, you will like it. If you love listening to catcher’s insights, you will love it.

    I want to write “I really hope a guy like Gary Sanchez pays attention to guys like this and learns from what happened to them.” But, then again, they all made A LOT of money doing what they did, right?

    Anyway, Sanchez is in a good spot with the Yankees, having catchers like Joe Girardi and Tony Pena on the staff. I just hope he doesn’t turn out to be a jerk. I so badly want to root for this guy.

    They must really hate this kid. Haven’t we seen enough of Aaron Hicks already?

    Is it just me, or, was Yankee Stadium practically empty yesterday?

    Missing Just One Thing

    No more A-Rod. Revisiting the magic of 1996. And, of course, the Austin/Judge thing – which still has my jaw dropped wide open the day after it happened.

    Hands down, the best Yankees day that I can remember in a long time. Maybe since the Boone homer?

    The only thing missing was Kang and Kodos coming down in their ship and whisking away Cashman. Now, that would have made it a PERFECT day!

    Gary Sanchez.

    I remember all those reports on his poor attitude. Lazy. Slow. Defiant.

    Also, a bad defender. Actual liability.

    Now, he looks like Johnny Bench. That block and throw out the other day in Fenway made me cry, it was so freaking pretty.

    Maturity is a good thing. I would really like to hear more about how this transformation took place. Who were his mentors? What was said that stuck? Stuff like that…

    After 4,561 Days, A-Rod Will No Longer Play For Yanks

    I guess A-Rod is the new Reggie?

    Good job by the Yankees. I am all for getting rid of useless parts.

    I wonder if we’ll see A-Rod, Bonds, Giambi and McGwire all managing in the majors someday?
