Whoa, imagine the complaints if Jose Bautista was having this year on the Yankees!

Will Ref wreck the Yankees?

[1] Who wanted him here?

Not I! Aging slugger without steroids.

We can’t lose to a team whose total FWar is barely better than one of our guys.

[2] I just meant, in a world where they had signed or traded for Bautista ... oh, the horror!

It’s really frustrating to watch Judge chase low and away when he was laying off that pitch earlier in the year.

It, uh. It is not frustrating to watch Castro chase low and away.

Shoulda traded Montero for Justin Smoak.

Are the Townies up 6-0 yet, too?

Remember when CC was good?

Waited two days for this shit.

Oh Todd you are so effing useless.

Even light can’t escape from Todd Frazier’s bat.

Todd Frazier sucks

Greg bird doing very well. Too bad Yankee team doctors failed him for 3 months. Seriously some changes ought to ensue. Yep now it looks like CC has lost his mojo

I want Choi back. Seriously. Now.

To be fair, didn’t the first ankle specialist Bird went to also misdiagnose what his issue was?

tfw Garrett Cooper is taking better, more professional ABs than certified “does not suck because 1.5 WAR” or whatever Todd Frazier

Three hits spoiled by a Todd DP. Paging Tyler Austin.

Oh Gary. We need you.

Hey, maybe just walk Donaldson next time.

I find it interesting that everyone has joined me in the TFS movement (Todd Frazier stinks).

I am thinking similar thoughts about Garcia but we shall see.

20 Hey I was there right from the get go.

Five out of six pathetic offensive showings about to become six of seven and if Francona hadn’t walked Judge we might be working on seven in a row. The only good hitters recently are Didi and Headley. And Cash is afraid to shake things up by for instance giving Andujar the DH job on a temporary basis.

Garcia is about 8 times better than Frazier.

Yeah Garcia’s OK, Todd stinks.

Clint 3K/3PAs hitting 087 for the month not even as good as Todd’s 143 for the month. Yeah he’s nowhere near ready.

Yeah this team’s winning the East in my wet dreams.

Clint is like Shea Hillenbrand. Prototypical poppin’ off attitude d-bag bro dude who actually can’t hit MLB pitching after a few reps. Let’s hope that improves.

Is Todd Frazier pretty much guaranteed a spot on this team until end of Sept? Because I don’t think relying on veterans who’ve gone thru the wars will give them a leg up on getting in the post season. Pretty sure they’ll end up on the wrong side of the ledger because they prefer TFrazier over a guy like Andujar.

What wars has Todd Frazier been through? Avoiding last place in the AL Central? Fighting with Hawk for the last bagel at the breakfast buffet?

In Girardi and Cashman’s minds, I guess being in the league for more than five years is more predictive of continued production than a kid raking in AAA. Can’t argue with that type of logic seeing as how the Todd Farter has been an exemplar of quality major league production at third base since he came over. Or maybe they just like having a guy who grew up in NJ playing for the team he rooted for. Everyone loves a fairy tale story.

Getting hits with the bases loaded not the Yankee way.

This team plays some of its worst baseball against the worst teams in the league. They actually look respectable against the better teams.

Pinch hit TRO?

Of course Mitchell pitches well when the game was already done.

Whenever Kay says a team has a weak bullpen they invariably shut down the Yankees. Of course shutting down the Yankees is the rule not the exception.

#BOO! #Yankeesstink!

This team now has the stink of boringness that the past few years teams had on them.

Choi with a home run. Lost his job for hitting well.

Can’t you smell that smell?!
