  1. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    This works for me as well.

    From what I've picked up, Stanton started 2018 with same stance he finished last year with. Although he's denying it - current rumor is he's opened up a bit - which I think a good thing. Although he can kill the ball using the lateral strength across the shoulders - and I mean, when he connects with a pitch - it moves - he'd be able to adjust to pitches better if he opened up a bit. My fear with Stanton is he gets the Arod brand. Although I'm not a proponent of extended contracts (as the guy at the end of the line is always a shell of his former self) - Stanton's gonna be around a long while, so I dont want his relationship with the fans to sour. Given the number of players who are pretty much slogging along (based on past performance) - I'm amazed how well we're winning. If Judge, Stanton & Sanchez ever get it together - together - it'll be a sight to see. You can throw Bird in there now. Excellent D - but his bat's been pretty quiet. We're fortunate Torres and Andujar have performed as they have. Otherwise, we'd be in a world of hurt. Walker's lost his mojo since losing his ABs to Bird. He had no spring training and was just hitting stride at the plate when Bird came back.

    Ha! This is true and I just commented about that on the NYY thread. He needs to open his stance up. He's "locked in" (locked up) with this closed up stance and cant adjust to pitch location.

    You're right about Betances. Watched one of the recent games and the announcer was discussing his past problems being him not keeping his front (left) shoulder in during delivery - which had his pitches moving all over the place (uncharacteristically). He stays solid as he is now - he's taken back the 8th inning. Control is key. He has it - he can chuck his nasty stuff. He doesnt have it - the slow sliders / curves come out to play....and minus a heater, often get smacked around. That - or he "walks" his way off the mound. But looks like he's straightened out. Good for us. Now - can anybody figure out Sanchez before the season's over? It would be nice if we could get steady production from him and/or Stanton (although GS had a nice game tonight. The Daily News is talking about Stanton opening his stance a bit - which sounds like a good idea to me. I'm amazed how little movement towards the ball he has. He basically hits flat footed - which means he stinks at adjusting to different pitch locations. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/ny-sports-giancarlo-stanton-mazzeo-20180619-story.html
  5. Aaron Rodgers and new contract

    I've not picked up anything to the effect that AR's been demanding a new contract. I think all concerned recognize he's due one given how the market has passed him by, but it appears to be more the team wanting to set things right - and its in their interest to do it. Extend AR / guaranteeing he'll be with the team beyond his current contract at salary levels which would be better than the FT amount. It's a win / win for both sides IMO. Dont know if the % of CAP or option year matters are truly being negotiated or are just media chatter.

    This guy's the equivalent of dead CAP space in the NFL - only the guy's still on the team. From the NY Post: "Updates on Jacoby Ellsbury get shorter and shorter but the message never changes: There is no timetable for the outfielder to begin playing in minor league games on a rehab assignment. “He is in Tampa working and saw a [back] specialist this past week,’’ Boone said. Ellsbury, 34, suffered a strained right oblique muscle in spring training and was placed on the DL at the start of the season. Since then he has had hip and back issues. He has yet to play in a minor league game. He is making $21 million this year and in each of the next two seasons. There is a $5 million buyout on the $21 million option for the 2021 season the Yankees won’t pick up."
  8. Official Yankees Thread

    It is a good day.....but I think the current players must've spent the night out with the Old Timers - just for old times sake - cause their bats were numb, null & void against a very pedestrian pitching staff. Perhaps it was too hot for them. Their bats looked slow and they continued a bad habit of swinging at *ridiculously* lousy pitches - you know, the kind that bounce off the ground in front of home plate? Correct me if I'm wrong - but outside one reliever, I dont think TB has any flame throwers that would mandate rearing up and swinging from your heels when the pitch is halfway to home plate. Odd. We're finding ways to win - but we've got ALOT of guys lost in the weeds hitting-wise.
  9. David Irving / Cowboys - 4 games ; Donald Stephenson / Browns - 2 games ; Julian Edelman / Patriots - 4 games ; Martavis Bryant / Raiders - may be suspended. Are there others? Do the Packers have any known "pending" issues? Guys caught speeding, smoking weed or being borderline bad dudes that MAY gain a suspension of some sort? I cant think of any at the moment...........and it this would be a nice list to keep off of.
  10. Brian Gutekunst to become Packers GM

    Thats an awfully short leash. Make the playoffs 8 (or was it 9?) years in a row - miss it twice in a row and get canned? Tough boss.
  11. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    You left out a small detail.....that you were a backup in both worlds!
  12. Official Yankees Thread

    Anybody catch last nights debut of Jonathan Loaisiga ? This kids got some good stuff - but what I really liked was his composure. Not having pitched above Double A previously, he answered all challenges. True it was TB and not BOS - but he showed a live arm and command of a full complement of pitches. Wondering if Cash is showcasing him for a potential trade......and hope thats not the case. Pair this kid up with Sheffield and we've got some good arms coming up. I'd hate to trade this 23y/o for somebody in his mid 30's.

    The Rorschach test is a psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of press conferences are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both.
  14. Seems to be the time of year when 2018 game suspensions are getting announced for drug related matters. Hopefully the GBPs can avoid this.....inconvenience this year.

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman was just asked about whether he'd listen to trade scenarios that include players in exchange for Gleyber Torres. His response? "No. Come on now. I've got to walk around this city." Coley Harvey, ESPN Staff Writer
