TORONTO – Remember when New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone last season told umpire Brennan Miller, along with PG paraphrasing, that his guys were savages in the flour box?
Well, yes, they still are, along with Aaron Judge just now activated Giancarlo Stanton and Geo Urshela ranked second most productive in the American League, slowed soft spots Brett Gardner and Gary Sanchez are the third part of their order.

Like the 18-1 beatdown from the New York Mets last week, when Danny Johnson left the relay at home plate to lead a big rally, Fisher failed to catch the routine on the Clint Frazier fly ball, then the incompetence led to a tough but catchy gardener drive.
At best, Taiwan Walker did not escape those two balls for Fisher after Urshela’s one-out double. Although only a Frazier flyball was caught, the innings ended in a Sanchez strikeout following Gardner’s drive, which was an RBI single.
Instead, the Yankees keep going, and the Blue Jays can’t stop them.
Walker, who could not escape the second inning, said, “I think good teams fed in too.” They continued to combine good hits. I feel like I’m still attacking, being aggressive, not walking anyone, but I can’t keep them away when I have two strikes on them. Good teams can do that. ”
After the Sanchez strikeout, Luke Voight three-run homer Tyler Wade and DJ Lemahiu provided two-strike RBI singles before clubbing. After Aaron Hicks went deep, he was charged with seven runs for the right-hand man – scoring only one – despite allowing six hits in 1.2 innings.
“It simply came to our notice then. This is part of the game. I found a way to get my teammate there, ”Walker said. “I had chances with Wade and DJ, had two strikes on them and couldn’t keep them away. They got those base hits there and it really came out.”
This season, Dan picks an issue, trend, news item or story around the MLB and digs into it with the guest. And he does 15 minutes five times a day for a week. Enough time to inform and entertain, but get fans back to all the sports going on.
It was hard to see and from there things went even further, as Shun Yamaguchi, the first of four relievers, opened the innings with a five-run third by walking the first three batters and hitting the next two.
Things went so badly that the shortstop Santiago Espinal, who finished ninth in the pummeling from the Mets, returned to the mound for the second time in five days. Although 10 people are carrying a bullpen after the off-day, Blue Jays is discussing adding a hand on Wednesday.
“You can watch (unfold the game), and you start to think about how much pitch we need, I hope that guy gets out of it,” said manager Charlie Montoyo. “That’s kind of the game.”

With second place in AL East in danger in the last two weeks of the season, it’s a bad start for the second of three series between the clubs, with four gamers remaining in Buffalo next week. With Gerrit Cole and Masahiro Tanaka starting the next two games for the Yankees, the Blue Jays will definitely cut out their work.
However, the Blue Jays have a relatively tight grip on the playoff spot because they really need to fall off a cliff and, at the very least, not pick up the wild card. However, as Major League Baseball Has officially unveiled plans for the post-season bubble After the opening round, one needs to wonder why a pair of games are not under such control.
After the Mets threw, “We came back and won the next two. It is considered a game. When you encounter good lineups, and you do not throw strikes and you lag behind in counting, it’s also going on, similar games. That’s how we see it. “
Fisher made his debut after Sept. 9, beating a two-run homer to Dewey Garcia 7-2. Garcia returned to the mound on Tuesday, and save for second-placed Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who doubled to fourth and sixth, and at home and alone in Lourdes Gurrell Jr., he traveled through seven solid frames.
Fisher went 0-for-4 with RBI this time around and Blue Jays will make an interesting decision in the coming days if Teoscar Hernandez, who faces Matt Schumacher in live batting practice on Wednesday, is ready for next activation.
Jonathan Davis, another extra iel tfielder, has options left, but the Blue Jays offer both plus baserunning and strong defense. Fisher could not be sent off without first being put through an apology, and while his strong minor-league performance and elite batting ball data suggest the premium upside if he ever puts his game together, this time he does not offer the roster enough to justify a spot on Davis.
That’s right, Montoya refuses to pile on Fisher, calls Frazier’s drive a “catchable ball” and he gives it up, you can say nothing more about that. “He distinguished it from some of the other bad decisions that other Blue Jays have made this season,” he said. That’s part of the game. No one wants to make a mistake. Mental disorders are a different story. But today they are physical. ”
Probably, but they came in a position where it was not right to invest against an opponent.
Urshela, who owned Blue Jays for three months in 2018 before he was sold to the Yankees, is a recent example of how a talented player needs a chance to figure things out. Billy McKinney, who lost to Blue Jays Milwaukee on Monday in an apology, but has gained interest from at least one playoff rival club, could be another.
One way or another, Blue Jays will be adjusting their list in the coming days. Maintaining depth is important, so it’s an observation, but if Fisher does not survive the winter on the 40-man list, far from guaranteed, carrying the best 28 guys at the moment should be a priority over property management.
The cost of Fisher’s errors will not only be a loss on Tuesday, but will also have an impact on the bullpen in the coming days. Such developments did not matter during the 2018-19 restructuring, but now in the middle of the post-season race, they are falling off the runway trying to identify project players.
