AUSTIN ROMINE AUSTIN ROMINEThey could trade him for a bag of batting practice balls for all I care. He gave up the first run not running after yet another ball he couldn’t handle as a **y catcher and then gave up a chance to win by dogging it..ride him out of town. Trade him to Jeter straight up for his catcher now
And apparently the prospects are not the top shelf ones, rather the generic over the counter ones. All to keep him from going to the Red Six and Astros. Maybe Aaron will take a page from Tampa Bay and start with relievers and finish with starters.
Doesn't at all excuse his dogged effort the other night. He turned the jets on when he realized he was going to look like a fool so he had that in him to beat that out. If you can't complete running down the ball after you allowed it to hit off your shin pad or running to first then don't play and put your team at risk of losing a game. He didn't risk it he lost it. Hey I like the guy but that was total BS don't care about the DL he cost the Yanks a game no excuse for that effort.Looks like Gary Sanchez is out for at least a month. So much for those, like Mike Francesca, saying that the DL was just an excuse to cover up his lackadaisical effort from the other night. I guess we'll see if Austin Romine is ready to handle the full time catching duties over an extended period of time.
So far Cashman has given up very little for Britton and Happ. Does Cashman have another deal up his sleeve? Hamels is off the table. Could he go for Adam Jones? Might be an interesting couple of days.Judge out 1 month due to hit by pitch on wrist. Yanks can endure this. Will be interesting to see if they import a bat. Twitter is funny with ideas.
Bird needs to become the word again.
