    No. I said he is still on the roster. I suggested he may be nearing bubble status.

    Besides, who else plays 1B vs RHPs? Holt? Nah. Travis? Nah. Swihart? Long shot, at best.

    Moreland is on the roster, but he's hitting worse than Vaz in the second half of 2018 (and Vaz's full season number, too). Lot's of people want Vaz off the roster.

    2nd Half Sox OPS
    1.014 JD
    .935 Betts
    .878 Pearce
    .837 JBJ
    .823 Bogey
    .739 Holt
    .739 Nunez
    .707 Beni
    .691 Devers
    .669 Swihart
    .563 Vaz
    .558 Moreland
    .342 Leon

    Moreland is streaky as hell. Just for fun, I'll predict that he's about to turn it around and has some big hits in the postseason.

    I hope so. I think some long rest will help.

    Swihart goes full on Big Papi 2013. Sox sign him to a long contract. He hits 500 OPS over the life of it.

    I haven't peed the bed in a few weeks. I'm good. Mommy even says we can take off the plastic sheets now!

    Why is it that old guys just post the grossest shit on here?

    I personally prefer Devers offensively. He has shown that he can hit good pitching, and more importantly he doesn't GIDP nearly as much as Nunez.

    I wasn't think of pee. I guess just young guys (and Trump) do that.

    Eovaldi should start game 3 (in NYC), and Price/ERod game 4. If we play Oakland, maybe things change.

    Weird, we used to try and start lefties in NY.
    Yep. The Yankees lineup is so stacked with right handed bats that the lefty formula doesn't work anymore.

    What lefty batter really scares you in the Yankees lineup? Didi can do some damage but that is all. The rest are right handed: Judge, Stanton, Voit, Sanchez, Torres, Andujar. As such, if the Yankees win the wild card game, Eovaldi should get a start against them with Rodriguez or Price coming out of the rotation for the division series.

    The Yankees were counting on Bird being a major factor and providing balance to their lineup. That didn't happen.
