    Fucking joke that Torres made the All Star team. Another overrated Yankee.

    First 33 games: 9 HR, 26 RBI, .325/.378/.597/.975
    Last 30 games: 6 HR, 16 RBI, .237/.294/.509/.803

    The pitchers and pitching coaches have figured out this flash-in-the-pan.

    Exactly.

    Stupid thread if you ask me.

    So shocking that a rookie cooled down a bit after a hot start lol

    I don't have all of the

    No, stupid is choosing Torres over Jed Lowrie for the All Star team.

    "He's a rookie, so let's reduce his requirements for being selected to the All Star team and leave more qualified veterans off the team."

    If Pedo had the kind of season that Lowrie is having and got snubbed, you'd be in here bitching up a storm.

    Gleyber is the Yankee flavor of the month. Next month it will be Aaron Hicks.

    Considering he was a top 5 prospect for 2 years before this, and still OPSing over .800 in his alleged "fade", I'm gonna go ahead and disagree.

    I'm also going to predict he's your 2018 ROY. Unless his teammate steals it out from under him.

    He's fading fast...
