The talk in the world of the New York Yankees may be surrounding Gary Sanchez but there’s far more happening right now including another Orioles loss and Manny Machado.
One of those things to think about is the future. While the Yankees have the future pretty much set right now with players like Greg Bird and Sanchez. However, they have their eyes set on someone else.
And that someone else might just have their eyes set on the Yankees.

Get the rumor mill started because any talk about Machado going to the Bronx will be magnified tenfold. Machado knows the fans are talking and it sounds like he’s open to what might come down the line.
Oh man, that 2019 Yankees lineup will be incredible if that happens. Just have to wait and see.
Of course, there can’t be all good news. Greg Bird was scratched from yesterday’s lineup due to a sore ankle. The injury is a result from a lingering soreness after fouling a ball off of it in spring training.
The level of concern for him is quite low, especially since Bryan Hoch reported that x-rays were negative for Bird.
Yankees say Greg Bird saw an Orioles team physician who felt no CT scan was necessary on his right foot.

“I would say that it’s high because I’m concerned about the fact that this has gone on since last April,” Cashman told reporter Mike Mazzeo.
Well, injuries happen, as we’ve seen with Sanchez in last night’s loss to the Orioles. You lose games and you lose players. That’s the baseball season for you.

Even though yesterday’s loss was yet anther heartbreaker, a milestone was reached yesterday.
“The New Guy” aka Matt Holliday hit an opposite-field single in the first inning for his 2,000th career hit.

Congratulations to Holliday and we’re hoping for more milestones to come this season. Here’s hoping the Bombers can straighten out their season before it gets out of hand.
