Thread: 9/15 @ Tampa Bay

  1. #1

    9/15 @ Tampa Bay

    Sale vs. Andriese (righty), advantage good guys.

    First game at the Trop post-Irma could be interesting. Yankees didn't have to go and in fact played their Rays series close to home.

    Starting this early because I might be working late.

    Nunez still out. Price available in the bullpen.

    Just keep winning boys... Yankees are starting to get hot over their last 10 games and with playoffs around the corner now is the time to step up and play your ass off!

    Let's sweep this series and get out of the most depressing ballpark in the world as quickly as possible.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    Even more depressing now, but this time for good reason. Irma no slouch. Sweep and get out is exactly right.

    With righty Andriese starting, I'm thinking more lefty bats--Moreland at 1b, Holt possibly at 2b, Devers at 3b, Beni in LF, Leon at C, JBJ in CF. Three mostly likely righties: Pedey at DH (unless he is well enough to play 2b), Bogie at SS, Betts in RF. Not sure I see HanRam in there if Pedey can't play 2b. Vazquez's bat would be just fine against a righty, but Sale likes Leon behind the plate I think.

    I expect Sale to pitch well, but that doesn't mean the hitters/lineup can take a break. You can't win if you can't score.

    We begin 2018 there for 4 games.

    I cannot stand that shit hole. I would rather be in New England weather.

    Isn't that always true? I lived in FL for a year during WW II and hated the lack of seasons. I wanted snow. These days I don't much like snow, but I still like those seasons.

    1 Bogaerts SS
    2 Pedroia DH
    3 Benintendi LF
    4 Betts RF
    5 Moreland 1B
    6 Devers 3b
    7 Holt 2b
    8 Leon C
    9 Bradley CF

    I got all the names and positions right, but am surprised to see Holt 7th. I would have batted him 10th or 11th.

    This may be the first time Farrell has had 5 lefty bats in a row (5th thru 9th).

    As I've said before, we will be getting no help from the Yankees opponents, especially the Roll Over Os. The Sox need to take care of business.

    Get it done boys!

    Baseball is not meant to be played in a dome.

    Tip of the hat to the Rays organization though for their efforts in helping out their community shortly after landing.

    I thought Tampa was pretty much unscathed by Irma.
