    Betances just went back into the MRI tube.
    The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you got to load or unload go to the White Zone.

    "Wait 'til next year" - a mantra used by Brooklyn Dodger fans (incl. my family) until 1955 when they beat the team that now will be using it through this season.

    It's a season lost to injury. Hopefully the Yankees will just tank and pick up some good picks in the draft.

    There still is too much talent for tank mode. CC sure surprised today.

    CC can still pitch well.

    But he has no velocity any more and doesn't have the strength he once did, so he can't pitch consistently well, and can't pitch deep into games when he is pitching well. He's a fine option as a 4th or 5th starter.

    Yelich tonight: Yard 3 times, 7 RBI.

    They won.

    Another one bites the dust. The oft-injured Greg Bird just went on the IL with a left plantar fascia tear. I think they'll finally give up on this guy, considering his crappy start.

    That's 13 in 15 games.

    And here's a heartwarming story about the Yeastie Beastie.

    Here's tonight's Yankees lineup:

    2B LeMahieu
    RF Judge
    1B Voit
    SS Torres
    DH Frazier
    3B Urshela
    CF Gardner
    C Romine
    LF Tauchman


    That's just not a very good lineup.

    Things are looking pretty bad when Luke Voit and his .328 on-base percentage are hitting third.

    I don't think (save for Mike Trout) that there is any other position player in MLB better than Yelich.

    Can't really argue this.
