  1. Interesting stat of the day for me. Yankees are 6-7 in their last 13 games with a +18 run differential. Pretty tough to do.

  2. I loved Paul O’neill as a player but it’s time for him to get out of the booth. He is brutal.

  3. Yankee bats need to wake up.

  4. Has anyone thought of giving Cano a new contract?
    Boras says he wants a 8-10 year contract for Cano. I am against any contract to him for more than 4 to 6 years. My reasoning is simple, there are very few good 2nd basemen that held their production after 34 years old…see Roberto Alomar, for one of a few! He will be 31 this year (I think). Have we not had enough long contracts?
    Yes twasp, I am also a Cono hater, right?

    • I am a huge Cano fan. Ken I agree with you a second baseman past 32 won’t hold up on production. A ten year contract for Cano would be brutal for the team. I doubt he would take a hometown discount because if he went out on got Boras as his agent he will want max years and dollars. If the Yankees don’t give him what he wants some other team will.

    • TWASP gives Cano whatever it takes to keep him. He’s a once in a lifetime player and will be productive through the age of 38 at least.

      Anyone who is against signing him is a Cano hater.

      • Twasp…
        Did you expect me to answer your shot at me? Wrong but, you may want to tell Matt S you didn’t mean that to include him!
        Have a nice day and better luck next time! 🙂

        • Oldcanohater24. – that was not meant to be a shot only at you Ken …..but also a shot at anyone who would not give Cano an 8 year deal. He is a once in a lifetime player who will still be productive into his late 30s because of his effortless style of play.

    • Ken – Joe DiMaggio once hit in 56 games straight.

      Also He and one other player are the only major leaguers to get 59 hits in 61 games. Who is the other player?

  5. I hope Tex leaving this game is just a precaution and nothing serious. That would be a huge if Tex has to go on the DL for any amount of time.

  6. Ichiro could have been the hero now it’s all up to Martin.

  7. Doesn’t sound good for Tex. Might just not be our year this year.
