Yankees started the season in Toronto going 2-2. Two losses were blown by the bullpen, coupled with excessive patience by the new manager, Boone, sticking with relievers that were not sharp.
I also am not in love with the Yankee lineup. Judge and Stanton, back to back, at 2 & 3. That's going to be close to 500 strikeouts for the season. I would prefer Walker or Drury batting 2nd, followed by Sanchez, Stanton, Gregorious, etc.
Another team I love with a manager with no experience. Oh boy.

How about the dopey Yankee fans that welcomed NL MVP to the team in his first game at the stadium by booing him. Glad he shoved it up their butts by homering today.

Stanton (12) and Judge (8 ) have 20 strikeouts in 44 at bats. I don't like a power hitter (Judge) hitting in the 2 slot.

I like the table setters up there first, then as mentioned previously.

Power hitters hitting second snuck up on me just like 7 footers shooting threes.

I'd probably go
Gardner
Sanchez -best righty hitter on the team
Didi - Probably best hitter on the team
4&5 -Judge Stantan either way (when Bird gets back, put him #5, i like the left righty left righty thing.
Imagine a ph like Judge or Stanton at #6?)

5 and 4 start, less than stellar. Can't figure out why the season can't open in warm weather and domed sites. Injuries starting to makes us look like last year's Mets.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
