If the Yankees win and Giancarlo Stanton hits twice, does he make a sound?
The answer can finally be found on Tuesday night in the Bronx: Yes, it makes a pretty significant sound, a bell melody with
This is the existence that currently leads Stanton, popular in his club and unpopular among his admirers. Even when the Yankees celebrated his return from the list of casualties, surpassing Rays in the Bronx, 6-3, to extend their lead in the American League to 2½ games, the owner of the largest franchise contract still drew heat with 0- -4 execution.
Negative feedback began with his first addition when he threw out Rays hunter Mike Zunino to finish the first inning and Aaron Hicks on the first base. This balances the thunderous oath that he received when the speaker of the public address, Paul Alden, said his name during the pre-introduction.
"So it goes," said Stenton for the first night. although he excites the crowd that is paying by jumping into the right field to catch Treviso Arno second, and the boss climbed to fifth when Stenton left two of his teammates on the base when he hit three tracks.

At the same time, Stenton has a lot of room for mistakes, as there is no need to save this well-oiled Yankee machine, and a little room for error because it will be an easy target if the team collapses.
After last year's minor injuries to his maiden voyage to play in 158 regular season games, Stenton managed to go through only three races in 2019 before ripping his left biceps, which led to a strained left shoulder, then baseball to his left knee during training in Tampa (as he returned from the biceps and shoulder conditions) again closed it.
"It was not a fun time," said Stenton.
His absence to load does not make hearts grow. Thanks to DJ LeMahieu's re-acquisition, Gary Sanchez's revival and Luke Voith's legitimacy, along with other participants, the Yankees have scored a lot, although they miss their twin towers. With 5.38 streams per match, they rank third in the AL. Their .259 averages are fourth, and their 625 breakthroughs are in tenth place. Compare this to last year's final ranking – the second in the draws, the eighth in the midfield and the third hit – and, well, you know how some people think the teams are hitting too many damn home runs and overtaking too much. Talking about this, the Yankees are tied (with Oakland) for fourth place in the AL with 115 homerums after setting a record for the biggest league last year. 267.
So the worry is that Stenton, who leads yanks last year 211 outsiders, while moving 38 times deep plus seven more drills (and one home runner) in its first post-season, may break what is a high-function unit in his absence. It was not on Tuesday, as the fifth lucky winning American had five singles before Stenton sniffed.
"I think the more contacts we can make, the better," Boone said. "But I do not want to sacrifice who we are and returns to the point of trying to improve as players like attackers, defenders, how we manage the bases, how we prepare for everything."
Last year he made a high margin of Stanton's career; his second worst total is 170 in 2014. If he can swell the last session – once every 3.75 plays, unlike once in every 3.34 poster on 2018 – this will be approximately less than 1 week. But his first day back did not create any optimism on this front.
"Boys have fun watching me while I'm gone," said Stenton. "You'd better go in and fight with them."
The more fun it is, the less it is heard, the better it is for Stanton and the Yankees.
