Andrew Benintendi is close to dipping below a 100 WRC.  That means he’s not even a top 75 outfielder.  He currently ranks with guys that nobody has ever heard of, like Harold Ramirez of the Marlins.

Did I miss something on why Boyd didn’t pitch today?

Just a couple of extra days of rest. Boyd will start Thursday in Chicago. No 2 start week. Sorry Mr BMcP

Thanks.  Actually I have an opponent who was banking on that against me, so I’m grateful - plus I benched him.  This gives me a chance to rectify that error tomorrow!

Clevinger looks marvelous. Who remembers when George Steinbrenner was a guest at Fernando's Hideaway?

Welcome back

Not gonna complain but I am gonna complain. Why was he pulled with 80 pitches? Hope this is not the norm. Still a stud performance after this first AB

The norm is around 90+ pitches. I wasn’t surprised he was pulled after 80.

Nope - this was a successful outing off a long DL stint and the Yanks had a lead. Best of all worlds pulling him after 6 with those pristine numbers. 

The one run he allowed was the leadoff HR by McNeil. Thought we were headed in a much different path back in Bottom 1st. I think the HR helped focus him in this start.

Clevinger pulled after 79 pitches. Gotta build up the arm strength. He looked really good. He hit 99 MPH.

Because we are in 2019 and 80 pitches is the new 100 pitches.

can't go over that 80 pitch mark. 80 is the new 100. I believe MLB will soon change the win rule to a 4 innings pitch min to qualify for the win. A QS will now be 3 runs or less in 5 innings

Damn it  Buehler don't F this thing all up

He really needs to mix in his off speed pitches better and locate them. They are just sitting back waiting on the gas.
