New York Yankees riding out an early rough patch

Adler How the Yankees struck back with a lineup of fill-ins

Because if this is Bryce Harper ... if he has evolved into the paragon of patience we've seen with 13 walks against five strikeouts ... if his home run stroke, which with six gives him more than the entire rosters of the Diamondbacks, Dodgers, Rays, Tigers, Royals and Marlins, remains true ... well, if all that happens, the contract talks start with a 4 and feature eight more digits.

Already, he's struck out five times in a single game...twice - setting history with this dubious mark. The 28-year-old slugger went 0-for-7 with five strikeouts during the contest.

Stanton was outstanding last season with the Marlins, cranking 59 homers and putting together a.281/.376/.631 slash line.

Baseball statheads will also remind you that a strikeout isn't really much worse than other kinds of outs, and sometimes is better: You would rather a player strike out than hit into a double play, for example.

ESPN Stats & Info noted it was the first time during baseball's live-ball era that a player had gone hitless with five strikeouts in multiple games in a season. That's not a typo-the man has struck out more than 50 percent of the time he stepped to the plate.

Brett Gardner came up in 2008 and has played in 147 Yankees-Red Sox games, the most of anyone on the Yankees' roster.

"Everybody goes through (booing), but we've got (Stanton's) back". But to be anything like the overall hitter he was a year ago, he'll have to cut down quite a bit on the strikeouts. "I've been around a long time".

Asked after Sunday's game if he expected Yankees fans to be this hard on him so quickly, Stanton responded, "Sure".

His hope is that a new deal is in place before he can become a free agent after the 2019 season.

"... I've always wondered why guys didn't try to go to third base there to try and keep the winning run at first base so that it takes an extra-base hit to beat you, so it worked out". "That's what I've been doing since this offseason, and I feel good about where I'm at".

As starters begin to slowly edge their way back to the field, the Yankees are going to be in good shape with the depth of this roster if people can stay healthy, which as of right now in the season is looking more and more hard.

Rookie manager Aaron Boone understands it. "I really believe it's as simple as that". And I think he's such a diligent worker and his prep is so detailed that I think he'll get locked in.

"Am I anxious about Stanton?"

For the second time in six games, Giancarlo Stanton heard hearty boos at Yankee Stadium. "All I worry about right now is my job".

Gregorius is making $8.25 million this year after bringing in $5.1 million last year and $2.425 million in 2016. It's about the love of the game and what I do for my teammates. "I just tried to slow things down, take it pitch by pitch". But while he is open to moving to NY, the Florida native insisted that he wants to continue playing shortstop, according to North Jersey.

"I knew their lineup, I knew who was coming up", Brach said.
