Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: At 4 p.m. on July 31, the trade deadline came to an end with the Yankees starting play 5.5 games behind the Red Sox. Two weeks later, the Yankees are now 10 games back, and just 3.5 games ahead of Oakland for the top Wild Card position.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman made a couple of trades that have turned out well thus far -- J.A. Happ and Lance Lynn among them. However, did he do everything he could or should have when it came to upgrading the club for a run at first place and a potential World Series title?

Too much faith in Britton turnaround?

The Yankees' three-headed monster has only shown one face lately. But luckily, Giancarlo Stanton isn't disappointing. 

Stanton provided the big blow in Wednesday night's 7-3 win to complete a sweep over the White Sox, crushing a grand slam in the top of the second. It was his sixth career slam, but more importantly, it was another big hit in the absence of Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez.

"It's good to produce any way, any time," he told The Post's Ken Davidoff. "But this is obviously more important than most times here. Just got to step it up."

Yankees OF Giancarlo Stanton wasn't named to the 2018 All-Star Game, but that doesn't mean he didn't have fun over the break. 

Stanton was seen in the Bahamas over the All-Star break, and he was accompanied by model Chase Carter, per The Post's Jaclyn Hendricks. The 21-year-old was a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie in this year's edition. 

Carter had an Instagram story of Stanton running in the water on a Bahamas beach. They supposedly met at CC Sabathia's charity softball game at Yankee Stadium back in June, according to SportsGossip.com.

German mediocre vs. Cleveland 00:05:00
The Baseball Night in New York panel debates which starter the Yankees should pursue after Domingo German struggled again against Cleveland.

The Yankees almost battled back from a four-run deficit, but they came up short in a 6-5 loss to the Indians on the road Friday night. >> Box score

Things to know about Thursday's game

1) This has been the story for Domingo German all season long. He has shown spurts like his last start where he can be dominant over a long stretch of a game. But then there's games like tonight, where he can't find the zone early and hits start to flurry accordingly. The Indians only collected five hits, but it resulted in six runs allowed by German due to his walks. Overall, he allowed four walks while striking out six over four innings of work.

With just three days left to vote for the 2018 All-Star Game, Yankees OF Aaron Judge is the only pinstriped player slated to start for the American League. 

This latest update on the ballot isn't a surprise as Judge was the third-best outfielder in voting last week as well. He remains in that slot this week with 2,021,348 votes, and Mookie Betts and Mike Trout ahead of him. 

Gleyber Torres, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez also remain in second place for their respective positions, while Miguel Andujar fell to third in third bas voting as Astros' Alex Bregman took the runner-up position. Didi Gregorius also fell from third to fourth in the shortstop list.

The Yankees are usually known for what they can do at the plate, but Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton broke that stigma in back-to-back plays Wednesday night. 

In the bottom of the third, Carlos Santana roped an opposite field fly ball that looked to be extra bases. But Gardner tracked it all the way to the wall, and leaped to make a fantastic catch before crashing into the padding.

The Yankees have made it clear they will be on the prowl for another rotation piece before the trade deadline strikes. The prospects they will part with to acquire their new arm, though, is still up in the air. 

One of the top prospects that will entice teams will likely be OF Clint Frazier, who has been the odd man out among a stacked Yankees outfield that includes veterans like Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks along with Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge

Though Frazier's name will likely be presented to GM Brian Cashman in proposed deals, he doesn't want to see him out of pinstripes anytime soon.

The stage was set for Giancarlo Stanton

With two outs and the game tied, 5-5, against the Mariners in the bottom of the ninth, the Yankee Stadium spotlight shined on Stanton as he walked to the plate. He could end the game with one swing, and in doing so, etch his first signature Yankee moment in the books. 

On an 0-2 curveball, Stanton's swing met the baseball, and a thunderous standing ovation -- something that has been long overdue for the reigning NL MVP -- followed.

Yankees OF Giancarlo Stanton said he wouldn't be changing his stance as he continues to fight his struggles at the plate. But, after a four-hit night in the team's win over the Nationals on Monday, it appears Stanton made an adjustment after all.

And it worked.

It was Stanton's third four-hit game with the Yankees this season, and he posted two RBI as well. As YES Network's Jack Curry pointed out after the game, Stanton's signature closed stance looked to be less drastic. His left foot was noticeably more open, while his body was more upright.

Stanton discusses his stance 00:00:49
Giancarlo Stanton discusses his struggles at the plate, whether he is considering adjusting his stance and how he plans to keep working.

It was yet another moment where Giancarlo Stanton could have won over the Yankee faithful. But the moment ended in what Stanton has been hearing amidst his Yankee Stadium struggles: boos. 

It was the bottom of the fifth inning in the Yankees-Rays matchup on Sunday, and New York finally had something going on offense. Aaron Hicks belted a solo homer to put the home team on the board with two outs. And after back-to-back walks to Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius, it was Stanton coming to the plate who had the chance to do more damage. 

Stanton was facing lefty Jose Alvarado, and the matchup favored the towering slugger who entered the at-bat hitting .338 against lefties on the year. But he struck out on four pitches with a shower of too-familiar boos coming from the crowd.

Sanchez struggles on 00:00:26
Yankees manager Aaron Boone discusses the slumping Gary Sanchez, and how his catcher needs to stay strong mentally to get through it.

As Gary Sanchez continues to fall deeper into his current slump, the Yankees are continuing to brush off any worry regarding their slugging catcher. 

After his 0-for-4 performance to finish the three-game Subway Series on Sunday, Sanchez is now 4-for-his-last-53 (.079) and he has not put one out of the ballpark since his two-homer game in Kansas City on May 19. Overall, he is hitting /.190/.291/.430 this season. 

Before the season began, many salivated at the prospect of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the same lineup. However, the Yankees made it a point to say Sanchez was their most complete hitter...

GEICO SportsNite: Mets injuries 00:02:21
Andy Martino joins the show to discuss the Mets' injury woes this season and the hamstring injury Masahiro Tanaka suffered Friday night.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | : Opening night of the 2018 Subway Series began in Metsian fashion, with injury announcements regarding two key pitchers -- Noah Syndergaard and Jeurys Familia.

By the middle of the evening, the plague had spread to the other team, when Masahiro Tanaka left after five innings with soreness in two hamstrings. Yes, you read that correctly. The hamstrings in both legs.

Before the night was over, the Yankees' trainer would visit Aroldis Chapman, and Jacob deGrom would have his heart broken yet again. It was not a good night to be a pitcher in New York.

It's a feat in itself to keep a lineup like the Yankees scoreless through 12 innings. But, with the Blue Jays staying off the scoreboard as well, it was only a matter of time until New York found a way. 

Aaron Judge was that Yankee in the top of the 13th. 

With the count 1-2, Judge waited on a curveball and sent it soaring through Rogers Centre and over the left field fence to finally break the 0-0 tie with a two-run blast...

You could see it the first time Giancarlo Stanton buttoned his pinstriped jersey at a remarkable news conference at the winter meetings last December in Orlando, Fla. The slugger, appearing relaxed and relieved, smiled while roasting Derek Jeter's Miami Marlins.

As Stanton said that the Marlins' front office had "no direction," and recommended that fans watch the team "from afar," he announced himself as a charismatic fit for New York. This was a superstar unafraid to speak his mind, mix it up, and lean into the brighter lights...

How is it that a designated hitter can affect the role of the catchers on a club? Plate appearances.

While the Yankees may not regret trading for OF Giancarlo Stanton, there has been an unforeseen development among the club's catchers that has manager Aaron Boone searching for a balance of duties behind the dish. Stanton's role with the club may be making that difficult.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | It was easy to get lost in the blur of the drama on Tuesday night, as the Yankees edged the Red Sox, 3-2, on the strength of two Giancarlo Stanton home runs. This was May baseball at its most theatrical, after all.

But as the Yankees completed the remarkable accomplishment of pulling even with Boston after falling 7.5 games behind on April 20, two underlying factors suggested that the they could be on their way to dominating the summer.

Before the game, Sox manager Alex Cora slipped in the major news that David Price would not make his scheduled start on Wednesday. Price, who began this season with 14 consecutive scoreless innings before stumbling a bit, is essential to his team. If he is a top-of-the rotation starter, the Red Sox rotation is deep and formidable. If he is not, it is thin...

Giancarlo Stanton sure loves this rivalry.

The Red Sox came to the Bronx for the first time this season on Tuesday night, looking to hold their AL East lead. The Yankees wanted to sit next to them on the throne as a win secured a tie at the top. 

Though Stanton came into the game with a .227 average, he did find success in his first series with Boston back in April. He went 7-for-12 with a double, triple, and three RBI over those three games in Fenway.

The Yankees traded Starlin Castro and Chase Headley this past offseason, which immediately pointed to the chance that two rookies - Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres - would man second and third base, the former Pinstriper's respective positions. But neither rookie made the squad out of spring training,

Instead, the Yankees went with a young, but experienced third baseman in Brandon Drury, and an inexperienced 23-year-old in Tyler Wade at second base.

If there ever was a time to awake the bats of Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez, it is against the Yankees' biggest rival. 

It obviously wasn't the biggest storyline of Wednesday night's brawl-filled fiasco at Fenway Park, but maybe it is the intensity of the rivalry that has sparked some offense from the Yanks' key power hitters. 

Both sluggers entered the series in major slumps. However, it wasn't something that the two were utterly concerned with. For example, general manager Brian Cashman said the way Stanton is handling the media's bombardment of questions shows he isn't worried in the slightest.

Having known Stanton since the 2012 season, Ramos has seen Stanton through ups and downs. And though he has heard boos from fans in just 10 games so far this season, the righty hurler doesn't think that is getting to him. 

"It's expected," Ramos said told The Post's Mike Puma. "I expect if I didn't do well, I would get booed as well. It's just you have a shorter leash [in New York]. If you have one bad game, they boo you then. Expectations are high, so it's something that definitely is not a surprise. I don't think it surprises him either."
