I was going to say that Frazier was the 14th player on the IL but Sanchez came off of it recently.

It's getting to the point where somebody has to take the fall even if it is not fair, just to have an indication that something is done about this. I'm thinking about the trainer and the strength and conditioning staff.

I also have to think that some of these injuries could be preventable.
I've been following baseball (i.e. Yankees) since 1976. I cannot recall a single time ever over that extensive period of time when they've had this many key players injured at the same time. It's usually a heavy blow to simultaneously lose 1-2 key players, but to essentially lose most of your starting lineup AND your #1 starter is simply incomprehensible.

Maybe you're on to something with regards to the training staff. This never happened when the Gene Monahan was the head trainer, and he didn't have a fraction of the technology that's available today at his disposal throughout most of his tenure.

Overall, however, I'm going to take the positive road here. It's hard not to. Despite all of their injuries, they're 14-10. If they were 8-16, or, God forbid, 4-20 at this point, these injuries would be an unmitigated disaster of potentially season-ending proportions. However, the fact that they still have a better record than the Sox, are in 2nd place, and well within striking distance of 1st, has me feeling optimistic about the remainder of the year.

Look at it this way: Barring the team charter crashing, it can't possibly get any worse than this...and they've still played better than the Sox. That's definitely cause for at least some optimism.

BTW, help is on the way! Yanks just traded for Cameron Maybin, so put your worries to bed.

Meh, he's this year's Andrew McCutcheon.

At least they got him for cold, hard cash! But Tyler Wade has to be pulling his hair out.

More like this year's Brandon Drury. If he hits above .190 I'll be shocked.

15-11....How are they doing it? They're being held together with scotch tape, spit, and gauze pads, but somehow they're winning.

It's almost May, and it's not Judge, Stanton, Sanchez and Severino propelling this team forward, but Urshela, Voit, Estrada and German. Who would've predicted that back in ST?

Well, I think he was banking on his big guns to blast their way through. However, he deserves all the credit you can squeeze between the moon and NYC for making all the right moves to plug the gaps. Even the aforementioned Cameron Maybin, whose lack of hitting prowess I joked about above, contributed to their victory against the great Madison Bumgarner last night.

Kudos to Cash.

The strange thing will be if, when Yankee regulars come back, the team goes on a losing streak. This has been remarkable so far, I must say. What are they going to do with some of these bench guys who are playing so well? Especially when, say, an Andujar or a Stanton are rusty and batting under .200? We'll see.

Indeed.

Well, it's really the same injury from March 31 but what will really be Bird-like is if Gio Urshela becomes the regular 3B in his absence. A slash line of .347/.398/.500 . . . a walk-off hit last night . . . let's just say that I wish Miguel well but I'm not missing him much right now.

As a matter of fact, maybe there is a tactful way of asking some of those guys on the IL to, uh, take some more time off just until we see how this is going? Until they are actually needed? No sense taking a chance hurting themselves again otherwise.

Yankees have now hit 29 HRs in their 10 games against the Orioles.

Why the Yankees need Dallas:


The starting rotation has quite a few injury concerns CC, Paxton, Tanaka. These guys just don't stay healthy. Germaine is too inexperienced and JA Happ is oldish.

Severino is supposed to come back after the all Star break I've heard, but I just don't feel confident going into the playoffs with that rotation. The Yankees need more consistentacy out of their starters. Dallas could help with this.

Meanwhile, it's the middle relievers that have been dragging the team down. Cessa, Holder, and Green all have stunk. The Yankees need to find an answer to this dilemma, fast.

It was so nice to see our old friend CC Sabathia in town this weekend. He had very nice things to say about his time in Cleveland.

Too bad he left town with an "L."

We are still not getting quality starts as well. How many starters are going to the seventh inning to at least ease up on our bullpen.

I blame Boone for cessa. He would bring him in at the wrong time, which is mostly always but cessa is not a bullpen guy. Cessa belongs as a starter on the back end of someones rotation that is not competing for a playoff spot.

I hate to say this but they should keep throwing CC out there until he wins his 250th - they owe him that - but in the meantime, they should be looking to trade for somebody to replace him in the rotation. He's done.

EDIT: And Luis Cessa needs to be sent down to the minors. This season is starting to go downhill and the damned pitching is dragging them down there.

Yes unfortunately pitching is not good. Need Severino to come back and pitch like an ace. Need Paxton to pitch well again. Cessa probably should be traded I feel like he never gets consistent opportunities. He is not a bullpen arm and should be the 5th starter on the Tigers.
