Makes me question the Yankees training regimen or what they allow players to do and not to do. In any type of physical exercise/activity. Especially since it's a lot of players who never were fragile until they put on the pinstripes. Stanton played like 150 games a year...every year... except the year he was hit in the face....when he was with the Marlin's. Was healthy his first year with the Yanks...and in his second year...he is out all the time and now again You have to question the training staff. It could all be coincidental and it probably is.....or maybe it isn't? It's a legitimate concern at this point. And they retooled their training staff last year. Has to be something that the Yankees have their players do. Maybe too much of one thing and not enough of another? No idea..but I smell fish Even in time Giacarlo has played...the game has changed. Alot Exit Volocity......Launch Angles.....WAR...all that shit has to be in these guys heads and making them ...well....break away from their natural swings and motions and attempting to "maximize" all that analytics...shit. You are not old enough to remember this...but in the 70s and even the 80s....with maybe only the Royals and Charlie Howe school of hitting notwithstanding....no two players on a team's swing....looked alike. Reggie was waayyyy different from Rivers.....Nettles was way different from Chambliss. .maybe Munson and Pinnella were....close... Now...Jesus Christ...they like fucking robots....hands and stance almost identical from Wade to Judge. I don't know if it is med staff...but I really think it is over coaching. If Joe Morgan or Yaz pleased today...some fucking "swing" Guru would tell Morgan to stop twitching and tell Yaz..."you hold the bat too high". I know that sounds like old grummy guy...but...i am...and I think I am right on this. They are getting Stanton to over tork and injure himself ...and the kid is killing himself trying to live up to that deal he signed....and it is fucking shame cause he is really good guy. C.
