Yankees @ Astros, Game 2, July 21, 2022

Garcia gets the ball. Jake in CF, Yordan at DH and Matijevic and Game 1 hero Matijevic gives Yuli a breather at 1B. Maldonado behind the dish.

Does Matijevic make that unassisted double play that Yuli did in the 3rd inning of Game 1?

Probably. It was right at him. Think any big league first baseman does.

Stanton plays LF like a DH

Or worse, although I don’t know what worse would be.

Damn, I was sure we were going to see some high comedy there.

I think Stanton objected to the notion that he couldn’t play left field.

A good left fielder gets in position to catch that at his chest.

But a DH doesn’t make the catch at all.

Doesn’t even attempt to.

Mostly because he’s sitting in the dugout.

Come on, Peña.

I’m glad I’m leaving shortly because watching Garcia nibble himself into a 5 inning at most start is going to cause my to flip my desk.
