    2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    glad he's getting this opportunity, some seem to be down on him. what's the rationale?
    I really thought I played great defense when the ball wasn't hit at me, Alex Rodriguez said.

    The rationale that if a young player struggles early, he sucks and the Yankees should get rid of him.

    Bingo.

    His at bats are definitely improving lately. Should be fun to see what he can do with some extended playing time the next week or so.

    Yeah he's just startin' to get his legs under him.
    Stewart really needs to be 100% before he catches another game.
    If that's for 5-7 days so be it.
    Until then it's Romine's.

    Stewie is back with a vengeance.
    2 for 4 with his 7th RBI of the year, jacking that BA up to .278

    Re: 2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    Was he never taught how to block the plate or is he just afraid of body contact (he actually backed into the plate, avoiding contact, instead of charging into the runner or dropping to his knees)? Whether the runner was out or not on that play is irrelevant to how his weaknesses are being exposed. Plus, plus defense (so says Mark Newman), my a$s. This is not him "struggling"; it's what he is.

    I'm sure his catching - non-existent pitch framing and lack of presence behind the plate, is privately driving the pitchers and Girardi mad.

    I felt he could have blocked the plate much better.
    Nix's throw beat Joyce home in the 7th, but Romine was not in front of the plate.
    The throw was there by a mile.

    Things faster than Romine's bat:
    Bengie Molina
    The Internet in 1995
    David Ortiz's metabolism
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    Yeah, I talk about Adams having good abs regardless of the results......this guy is the opposite.

    He's not a failed prospect, just not ready yet. Frankie can't get back soon enough. Good experience for him nonetheless.

    As long as Stewie is 100% he needs to play.
    But if he not feeling right then Romine has got to go out there and do his best.

    The Yankees can not afford to have Stewie on the DL.

    learn how to block the plate kid..you're the backup backup catcher

    Re: 2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    It was good to see Romine get two hits up the middle, it showed he was squaring it up. But he was totally overpowered by Allen's fastball.

    Dude got a hit. To bad it wasn't one to break up a no-hitter.
    Would have been more dramatic.

    Yankees are totally stuck with him at backup because of Cervelli's latest setback.
    Two weeks of doing absolutely nothing. Then MAYBE starting rehab over again.

    .136 BA .149 OBP .182 SLG
    30 GP 66 AB. C'mon man. The Mendoza Line is calling you.

    Don't want to pick on the kid..........but Bennie Francisco was better than this.

    I have the utmost faith that he can feel for it and that he can reach it.

    .198 at game's end!

    Re: 2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    He is now hitting pretty well and deserves a chance. The rest of the way Girardi should play him most days and use Stewart as the backup. What do they have to lose at this point? They know what Stewart is, including his limitations.

    Re: 2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    Since my accidental duplicate thread was closed, I'll copy last night's post here:

    He's actually been a relatively bright spot on the offensive side of late. (Notice that I said "relatively" ... relative to the rest of this lineup.)

    He's got his BA all the way up to .213 now (it was in the low one hundreds for a long time). He was two for three with a walk today, the only Yankee to have more than a single hit.

    Those hits included the only extra-base hit of the day ... Romine's very first Major League home run. I heard he got the ball back, too ... it landed in the Padres bullpen and one of those obliging fellows handed it over.

    As for Sterling's call, whoever had "Austin Powers one" in the NYYFans pool, takes home the pot.

    In a few weeks he may be competing for time with J.R. Murphy as well. This is really his chance to make an impression.

    Sterling had the same HR call for Romine as he had for Austin Kearns.

    Re: 2013 Austin Romine Performance Thread

    I wonder if Girardi's binder shows Romine's all star break splits

    Pre All Star Break: .158/.179/.211 with an OPS of .390

    Post All Star Break: .345/.441/.552 with an OPS of .993

    nice night for the kid
