How Much Longer....

How much longer do we Yankee fans have to put up with the dark clouds that have become Sonny not so Sunny Gray. Up and down up and DOWN. 2.2 Innings 7 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks. Absolutely horrible and down right unacceptable. There is no way the Yankees are going to catch Bostonwith performances like that. There was one bright and sunny part of today’s game however , the newest Yankee Lance Lynn was on the money. 4.1 Innings with 5Ks 0BBs and no runs allowed. He did give up 5 hits but I’ll sign up for 0 runs any day of the week. The Yankees just need to bite the bullet and put Lance Lynn in the rotation and move Gray to mop up duty. If Gray plays well out of the pen maybe he can earn coming in in tight spots , however with the way he looked today and how he walked off the field I wouldn’t bet on it.    

If the Yanks don’t want to add Lynn to the rotation there is also the other option waiting in Triple A and no I’m not talking about Luis Cesa......... I am talking about the man that has C.C. Sabathia Drooling.......Justus Kane Sheffield.Sheff is 5-5 with a 2.34 era in 18 games between AA and AAA and may be a huge spark to the Yankees rotation. Justus is a left handed pitcher 22 years old and part of the next wave of Baby Bomber just waiting for his shot to prove it. The Yankees may be wise to give him a shot sooner rather then later it may just add a flare to the whole team. Anyways as far is Gray goes as far as I’m concerned the time is now. Give is Lynn Give is Sheff or Hell let’s see if Chance Adams can give us something. Please I beg you Please just no more Sonny Gray!  Walking off the field with that smile almost says......Yeah I got shelled but who cares I’m still getting paid. Which to me is a sign Sonny Gray is never going to improve. Which goes back to my original question, How Much Longer do we have to put up with Sonny Gray? 

As always I can be reached at JamesCPalma@Yahoo.Com I look forward to hearing your thoughts and questions.Have a Awsome night Yankees fans and Bless You All.  



  1. Sonny Gray should be out of the picture no doubt. it also sucks that the Yankees could not hit against the worst pitcher in the league (2-12 with a 6+ ERA coming in)
    Stanton and To Mike's bad whiff with bases loaded sucked. Walkers DP with the bases loaded sucked. Hicks 3 more strikeouts sucked. Torres on D sucked. Boone needs to show more intensity - he has the players blowing bubbles instead of playing hard.

    1. Couldn’t agree more. But it may have been they were all pressing today because of the huge hole Gray put us in. Stanton has come on since his slow start as has Hicks they will have games like this. I don’t expect much more from Walker he is an ok player not a superstar. Boone has been good keep in mind we would be in 1st place in any other Divison.

  2. Sonny Gray , what to do with him.
    He usually good during the day even decent at the stadium but today , wow.
    Maybe we should had traded him ,he is like A.J.Brunette and can't pitch in NY .
    Time to try somebody new , 1 year we have heard about Gray and his stuff being ace like but not showed up.
    If he has options send him to AAA , bring up Adams and try him or Sheffield or Cessa anybody but Gray.
    Didn't agree with the trade of Warren or Austin but I guess they had to be made .

    1. Well Warren being traded got us much needed money for the international market. Which is a a
      Major need so we can keep making our farm system better. Because we have 2nd best record in baseball we will pick late 1st round. If we sign a big fA we will lose 2nd round pick. Only way to get top talent is through the international market.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
