Andújar, Stanton Go Boom as Yanks Win! 

Miguel Andujar’s Home was difference as the Yanks beat the Rangers 5-3, on a wet Saturday afternoon. The rain did not keep the fans away as there was a reported 45,933 in attendance. Not bad seeing as the stadium holds 47,422. Dellin Betances picked up the Win pitching 1 1/3 of a inning, with 2Ks to go along with zeros. Starter Lance Lynn was okay today 5.0IP with 3 Walks, 5 hits, and 8 Ks. Chapman picked up his 30th save, 1 walk 1 hit and 2Ks. Greg Bird doubled twice, and Stanton blasted his 29th HR of the season. I for one am thrilled to have Stanton on this team, and knew he would get out of the funk he was in earlier this year. Giancarlo’s HR produced his 75th RBI. With 279 AVG 29 HRS and 75 RBI you can sign me up 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.  

The Yankees have rebounded nicely since being swept by the hated Red Sox. They took all 3 from the White Sox, and have grabbed 2 of 3 from Texas so far in this 4 game series. The series concludes tomorrow @ 1:05 PM ET C. C. Sabathia 6-4 3.49 ERA goes against Martin Perez 2-4 6.15 ERA. The Yanks however can not afford to take anyone lightly, and must play every game with passion and pride. That is if the still want to win the division.  

Let’s G⚾️Yankees!!

  1. Everyone worried about Chapman today , with that mess it was horrible to pitch in and with a bad knee was just asking for it.
    Ok , Valencia is available time to pony up nd get him or bring up Torreyes and send Robinson or Voit down. Maybe give the O's Voit for Valencia in a 1 for 1 swap. We got snookered maybe we can snooker someone with him.
    Andujar has not changed his approach to hitting unlike Torres who has gone swinging for the fences with the move up in the lineup .Though with Robinson will always bat 9th.
    Torres needs to be dropped back down to the 8th spot.

  2. Torres should bat 9th. Robison should only stay in the lineup as long as Stanton can’t play the field.
    Other wise the Yankees should look Like this
    1. Gardner LF
    2. Stanton RF
    3. Didi SS
    4. Hicks CF
    5. Andujar 3B
    6. Walker DH
    7. Romine C
    8. Bird 1B
    9. Torres 2B
    Walker maybe out a few days so need to adjust a little but Robinson shouldn’t be playing as much As he is.
