    I like that Stanton is working on his contact hitting this spring. Trying to smash that right field wall.

    He can go deep any time he wants so this would be a nice add to his toolbox.

    I'm happy to see Nimmo hitting the cover off the ball. If he's putting it together and becoming the guy we thought he could be when he was drafted that's huge. Would also mean Bruce plays 1B when Conforto comes back if Nimmo is hitting. Then you could conceivably move Smith and literally put Gonzalez in a large trash can.

    I used to absolutely despise his play-by-play. Still not a huge fan but he has gotten better. I love his radio show. I think that has helped me changed my view of him. Before that he seemed like some little kiss ass weasel with lame play calls like “pretty play.”

    I don't mind Kay. There are better guys in the business, but there are also far worse.

    Kay has had some great calls.

    Plus, he's not Sterling.

    Michael Kay is Ranch Wilder from Angels in the Outfield. He even looks like him. Guy’s a total clown who’s in love with himself.

    The effort Stanton puts into his swing and the sound it makes just don't match.

    Scary dude.

    When you got legit 80 power all you need to do is put barrel on the ball and any decent contact and you'll muscle it over the fence.

    Walker could play 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Not sure how well he can man 3rd at this point, but he's a good pickup. Has Torres disappointed in spring so far?

    He hasn't hit well but he wasn't likely to start the season with the Yankees anyway.

    I think a trade is on the horizon.

    Brandon Drury will be the best #9 hitter in baseball.

    Gardner
    Judge
    Stanton
    Sanchez
    Didi
    Bird
    Hicks
    Walker
    Drury

    might not be the exact order, but HOLY ****

    As good as that lineup is, I'm still not entirely sold on Bird and Hicks. It could POTENTIALLY be the best in baseball, but if those two can't find consistency it will throw everything off.
