Yanks show who's boss with 20-6 spanking of the Jays. Voit plates five, hits two over the fence to take over the major league lead with 18.

Ken Davidson in the Post:

Let’s winnow down Saturday’s ballgame at Yankee Stadium to a single word: 

Losable.

When you commit three errors, when you go 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, when your guy hits the ball the hardest of anyone and it’s an out, when their guy drives in a run with a blooper … stir, add bourbon and go drown your socially distanced sorrows.

And with all that, the Yankees are stirring. Voit's walk-off sac fly brought them their fourth straight win, the last three over the Orioles, who are suddenly no threat for the last wild card, even if they win today.

“Obviously it was a tough slog there for a couple of weeks,” Boone said, “but guys are starting to gain a little bit of confidence and hopefully we can go finish off a really good series into the off day [Monday].”

Slugged his 10th home run of the season on Thursday afternoon against the Rays. It was a first-inning drive to center off Rays opener John Curtiss.

Voit also added two singles, finishing the day 3-for-5 with two RBI and
two runs scored. He boasts a .311 batting average and 1.115 OPS through
83 plate appearances this season and is up to 45 home runs and 115 RBI
in 178 total games as a member of the Yankees.  (Rotoworld.com)

Not to worry, Luke. You were taken in Round 22.

Today at Baseball America:


On scaling back the draft


A special assistant to the GM who has been a scouting director:

“I don’t have a problem cutting (the draft) back to 25 to 30 rounds. You’re still drafting enough players to fill out those (short-season) rosters. That creates a much bigger pool of free agent possibilities. Quite honestly, it gets to be nauseating in the 35th round to find a player who is worth a selection. You’re not excited about any of those players. The draft board has been obliterated. It gets worse every year because teams get better and better at the draft. Most teams are increasing staff. Teams are getting better at it. More data is available. There are more looks at kids. Once you get to the 36th round, it’s not good. You’re better off doing a workout a week after the draft where your scouts invite the undrafted players”

"I'm confident," said Aaron Boone in September, "that Luke Voit is an impact player for us."

So am I. Except, not for me.

I do my best to avoid Yankees.

But you know what? I'm punting batting average this year, and when you're doing that, who better than Luke Voit?

You won't pay a cent for his batting average and it's not out of the realm he'll bat .285 or so. He's that good.

For years and years I had Mariano Rivera.

You have to be flexible.
