Week 19 Yankees Players of the Week

The Yankees suffered yet another bad going 3-4 against Cleveland, Toronto, and Baltimore. They had an inexplicable series loss to Toronto after Rafael Soriano blew a save in the 1st game and a combination of bad defense, bad pitching by CC Sabathia and going 3-17 with RISP lost them the 3rd game. They could have made up for it against Baltimore but lost two out of three to them as well, which could very easily have been a sweep if not for an error by J.J. Hardy. This is the 2nd time I can remember this season where nobody is really worthy of player of the week. The Yankee with the highest average this week was Robinson Cano at .250 and there were not really any spectacular pitching performances. The only Yankee who shined this week was David Robertson. He pitched 4.1 innings of scoreless baseball and had holds in all 3 of the Yankees wins. He is your Week 19  Player of the Week. Hopefully next week we can actually have four legitimate candidates again.  They play huge games against Tampa Bay and Baltimore again so a lot of people need to step up more.

  4. Great post

    Players gotta produce, period. Managers and Coaches can’t do it for them. Everyone needs to stop blaming Girardi, these are professionals who should be able to do the job when they are called upon. The fact that they haven’t is no ones fault but their own.

    Hoping they turn things around and start playing the way they should in Tampa today!

    • Hey man thanks for stopping by. Always a loyal follower on Twitter hope to see you back on here.

      The injuries have hampered this team. But one thing I hope you and everyone can agree on is this team is very old and didn’t have enough youth on it to begin the season.

    • Great Reply, damen37.
      Truer words are hard to find!

    • Hey Damenace…..

      True dat….players gotta play well…that’s there job. Managers gotta manage and GMs gotta build the right team. Do you think Girardi or CashMan has done anything wrong executing their respective jobs?

  5. Matt B…

    IF THE TEAMS TOO OLD, IT SHOULD BE SOLD(tm).

  6. I felt the only one that shined WAS D-Rob. Who else can pitch absolutely perfectly and have a baby the same week? :)
