Didn’t watch the game. How did it look?

Cisco battled Cole to 3-2, fouled a couple pitches off, and then hit a hanging, outside slider over the fence down the left field line.  It was a fine at bat.

I must admit that I often miss the days of Matt Wieters.

In Wieters, Hardy and Schoop, we had three great taggers.    Wieters was awesome at short-hopping throws and with those long arms could take balls well in front of the plate and sweep tag just about anyone; and before the “no blocking the plate” rule, was a boulder down there.   Hardy taught Schoop how to position himself astride the bag and let the ball come to him rather than reaching out for it, and they were both expert at this and also extremely adept at catching and tagging in a single motion, even on bouncing throws.     I think of this every time Villar, Alberto or Martin reach out for a ball and either are a split second late with the tag, or simply don’t catch the ball.

I hope our new O's coaches try to instruct our middle infielders about this!

Could just hire Hardy, not like he's busy.

It occurred to me, but then I thought it might be seen as encroaching on the current infield coach's territory. BTW who has responsibility for that area?

There isn't one coach specifically listed, but based on the bios I'm guessing Jose Hernandez or Jose Flores.

I just pulled the game up. Why is Sisco at first?

Pinch hit for Martin and because Chris Davis isn't good at baseball anymore.

Refulgent double down the right field line off a fb on the corner. #ChanFranSiscoTreat. 

I learned a new word - rep to you!

His framing looks pretty good. Very smooth and unforced. 

Yeah, he got 3 strike calls on one batter that were all off the outside corner.  I don't know if it was bad umpiring or good framing or a combo.  Otoh, he made me almost pull my hair out when batting he had a 3-1 count and swung at what would have been ball 4 twice - and struck out.  Tell him not to watch Chris Davis anymore.  Btw, Davis' attempt to catch a very high popup to short RF last night... just awful.  He's not just horrible offensively; his defense is also unacceptible.  He has to go, but we all know that - as he continues to play.  Ok, back to Chance.

    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
