Sanchez can sure hit, but he must be tired this morning from chasing all those balls that got away.

He is not a catcher he is a retriever. Puts the moniker backstop for the catcher position. Is it legal to put on a shift putting an infielder behind the catcher with the tying or lead run on third late in a game? All that said he is a great hitter and glad to have him.

We have one of them crazy games in Texas. 11-10
Didi hit his 1th, Gleyber is on fire hitting another , Judge hit a 471ft bomb, and Neil.

Got 2 inning to do something, with 3, 4, 5 due up in the 8th.

Now can the pitching shut it down?

This bullpen has been somewhat of a disappointment so far, this year.

Case in point: David Robertson has not had a good season to this point, yet he is in no danger of losing his job, because no one else has stepped up, and taken it.

Bird returning from what seems like years on the DL, but what are they thinking demoting Torreyes?

I was a bit surprised by that and think he'll be up hear again soon enough. But at this point Gleybar can play SS if needed, Walker can play 1b/3b/2b and has a better bat and Austin can be play 1b/dh against lefties, even filling in in the OF on occasion.

Part of this may be showcasing Austin too. If they need a starter and Austin continues to hit with power he'll have value to other teams, and perhaps enable you to package him and a few other good prospects without having to sacrifice one you really want to keep.

And with Bird's health situation there is always a chance he is back injured in a few weeks in which case the Walker/Austin platoon makes sense.

torreyes will be back in majors soon.
yanks going with extra pitchers instead of offensive sticks. torreyes paying the price for talented sticks, poor pitching.
3 of last 4 games showed weakness of pitching staff. its sevy and the sticks.
boone went a few batters too long with cc, perhaps because he believed no one else could put out the fire.
i thought when trout took his 3rd at bat on saturday, they should have walked him. count already at 2 & 0.
tough break with 2nd baseman dropping throw that might have been double play. game was over with that error.
yanks on pace to set team/mlb home run record. young & talented.
#99 - multi threat - power, bavg, on base %, arm, leg, sells tickets/shirts. boone looking to run more & more.

My guess is Tyler Austin is being showcased. If Bird proves healthy, Austin will be traded.

Long term, Torreyes and Walker are your infield reserves.
