    So Yuli leads off the bottom of the 9th. Mancini is out of the game.

    Agreed. Too many holes.

    The move was to keep Mancini at 1B, and insert Vazquez in the 2-hole to catch. Much rather Christian get the at bat than Yuli.

    Best bullpen eras:

    Astros... 2.64
    Yankees 2.98
    Orioles.. 3.10
    Dodgers 3.17

    Yankees over 3 after today's game.

    I think the cult of Maldonado is absurd and believe he gets a bunch of credit for a staff that would be very very very good with anyone back there. I really wish he was scramblers caddy right now. All that said- he’s actually been pretty damn good with the bat the last 6 weeks and I refuse to sweat 1 shitty hitter in the lineup in the 9 hole.
    I know you were being sarcastic- just used that as a jumping off point to talk about Maldy’s bat recently.

    I honestly have no clue what goes on in Dusty’s brain. His lineup moves literally defy reason. When the bases were loaded and Yuli was up sure af seemes like a better time to PH Mancini. If you’re going to bring Diaz off the bench anyways why wouldn’t you start him over Dubon??

    I get rest days but it’s like Dusty is adverse to simply fielding the best lineup more days than not. It’s like he purposely makes this a lot harder than it has to be.

    Send us home Yordan

    Those suggesting Yuli was going to walk it off have a sick sense of humor.

    I hate Dusty for making me sour on Yuli. Love that dude but he belongs on the bench
