S.T. Game 5. Infielders carry Yanks to 8-6 win. Harper signs with Phillies.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks beat the Pirates, 8-6 to improve their spring training record to 3-2.

The good: Infielders carried the day. Troy Tulowitzki (steal? If he is close to what he used to be, it’s a steal getting him) homered again, a 3-run shot in the bottom of the first. Tyler Wade had a solo HR.  L.J. Mazzilli, Lee’s son, broke up a 5-5 tie with a 2-run double. Greg Bird had two hits. Thairo Estrada, who lost most of the 2018 season after getting shot in the hip on a burglary attempt, had two hits.

Zach Britton and Jonathan Holder did well.

The not so good: J.A. Happ and Adam Ottavino struggled.

Happ 1 1/3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Tarpley 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Ottavino (BS) 1 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Britton 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Cortes 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 2 W, 4 K.
Holder (w) 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Rosa (S) 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.

Bryce Harper finally signed with the Phillies for 13 years (no opt-out, has a no trade clause) and $330 million.

The Phillies have done nicely this offseason, getting McCutchen, Harper, Segura, D-Rob, and Realmuto. I live near Philadelphia, so the Phils’ fans are chirping, as is the Philly media.

But I do wonder about this regarding the Phillies….

Yes, Aaron Nola is good (17-6, 2.37 last year, 3rd in CYA, 13th for MVP, All-Star) and Jake Arrietta (10-11, 3.96) is a former CYA winner, but even with what appears to be a very good lineup now, their 3-4-5 starters look like

Nick Pivetta, 26, 7-14, 4.77 in 2018. Career 15-24, 5.33
Vince Velasquez, 26, 9-12, 4.85 in 2018. Career 20-26, 4.60
Zach Eflin, 25 soon, 11-8, 4.36 last year, Career 15-18, 5.10.

I don’t mean to rain on Philly’s parade, but despite the additions they made, they’ll need to improve considerably on what they get from their 3-4-5 starters.

As Yankees fans, that wouldn’t be acceptable on our end now, would it?
