Man, what a laser by Willi.

On Bieber’s 118th pitch.

So we’ve established that Bieber is indeed mortal.

Jordan Zimmerman

Mike Moore

Tim Belcher

Discuss...

Who was that pitcher the Yankees signed about 10 years ago who was hurt for like 3 full years?

Belcher was only for one year, so not him.

What a year for Ron Gardenhire. This team won far more games than it should have. Other than Cando and Willi and maybe Schoop, and little Victor until the past week,  who played up to their potential? JaCoby was OK for a while I suppose. The team ERA is like 6. Poor Rick Anderson. He's done. No more jobs for him.

But Gardenhire will be remembered fondly for what he did with this sad sack team.

Goodrum has now K’d in 46% of his AB’s this season.  I think he should stop worrying about where he plays in the field.

He needs to stop trying to bat LH - it's hard to believe he could be worse facing RHP as a RHB. He is 8/29 from the right side, 11/90 from the left.  His SH split is 200 pts! Most single side hitters don't do much worse than a 100 pt platoon split. It's been pretty much that bad his whole career. Just seems nuts he doesn't try standing in against righties from the right side. He's been banging his head against a brick wall as a LHB.

Like, we didn't know this already?  You know they put this on the screen every time he comes to bat, right?

Was he not friendly enough to you?

Willi Castro is 23!

He also has a 4% walk rate and .453 BABIP and can't play defense. But there is something in that bat for sure.

Didn't watch the game so I don't know if this was the reason for his struggles or not but in previous games Mize problem was his command especially with the fastball. 

Its something that hopefully he can get straightened out cause right now he just cant command the top of the zone or corners with it and until he does hes gonna continue to struggle. 

Coming out of college that was considered one of his strengths but seemingly he has lost that the last calendar year or so. Not sure if its bad coaching not identifying a possible mechanical flaw, an injury  or what but it needs to be straightened out before he gets called up next year.  Imo.

I agree about the FB command up in the zone. I didn't see  too much last night either but another thing I did see against RHB is that his slider was not sharp enough to fool hitters into swinging when he threw it out of the zone and he didn't have the confidence/command  to throw it in the zone. Too many pitches low and away that weren't tempting the hitter.

He strikes me as at the opposite quadrant of JV at this point. JV early in his career had more work to do because even as good as it was, he couldn't just blow big league hitters away with his fastball. Mize looks like he  has to work on everything else beside the split for pretty much the same reason.

You mean other than half the starting lineup you listed?
