    The minor league mantra that kickstarted Yankees youth movement Gary Sanchez This is not just about drafting and developing talent, it’s about developing a winning mindset, and that is what sticks out most about these Baby Bombers in their first days on the job. Results, not a player’s résumé, now matter to the Yankees. Keep the youth movement going, don’t stop here because besides talent, these Young Yanks have a winning pedigree. This is a blank canvas for Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi, with so many veterans sent away, including Alex Rodriguez. The energy level is raised and the first-place team looked like the fourth-place team Monday night at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees came away with a 1-0 victory over the Blue Jays. Young starter Chad Green was magnificent, striking out 11 over six shutout innings to get the win. Green is 25. Right fielder Aaron Judge, all of 24, had another big night and is the first player in Yankees history to record an extra-base hit in each of his first three career games. Catcher Gary Sanchez, 23, also picked up two hits and was on base three times. Judge saved the Yankees from a runners-in-scoring-position nightmare as his double in the fourth drove in the only run of the game. The Yankees were 2-for-18 with RISP, leaving 14 men on base. Here is the key: The Yankees stayed together and won the game, their fifth in six games. Winning is something that has been the calling card of these young players since they entered the organization. This is part of their DNA. This is more than just talent. Listen to Judge. “Ever since I was drafted, and a lot of these guys have been drafted, and picked up, that’s the first thing they just kind of inbred in you, that we’re a winning organization and we are going to go out there and win,’’ Judge told The Post. “It doesn’t matter about your stats, your friend’s stats,’’ Judge said, “whether you struck out your last at-bat or if you got a home run, it’s about winning the ballgame no matter what. So that’s what we’ve kind of all been doing the last couple of years in the minor leagues, winning together, getting ready for this opportunity.’’ You have to have that winning mentality from within your organization. That commitment to winning must come from within where the players are all in for each other. You could see that every time Sanchez marched to the mound to talk to Green and help pull him through. “This is what I saw in AAA,’’ Sanchez said through an interpreter of Green’s magnificent performance. “It’s about winning.’’ The Yankees are letting the youngsters run. “I think that they understand that we believe in them, and we have to show them that,’’ Girardi said. “That doesn’t mean that a young man is not going to go down [to the minors], but we really believe in these guys.’’ Part of it is also having success rewarded. Girardi said Didi Gregorius, who is only 26, and moved up to third in the order, has “earned the right to come up in the lineup and you gotta see how he does. Didi is a young player, too, and we are trying to give him more and more. We loved what we have seen from him.’’ Is Girardi managing from a point of view of results and not just résumé now? “Yeah, you’ll go over a period of time,’’ Girardi said. “Didi has been doing this for four months now, really you can say seven, eight months. Now you look at it. When you have résumés, you expect they are going to follow those résumés, but sometimes time dictates that where they don’t and you have to make adjustments.’’ The energy is different around the Yankees, too. “There’s a little more energy,’’ Girardi admitted. “That happens when you have young players.” And when you have young players with a common commitment to winning, that makes a difference, too.

    Aaron Judge, Chad Green help Yankees edge Blue Jays, 1-0 Aaron Judge provides the lone run of the game with an RBI double in the fourth inning. Aaron Judge has gotten plenty of attention the past three days, and with good reason. But Chad Green reminded everybody that the Yankees' youth movement is about more than the hulking slugger. Green pitched six brilliant innings Monday night against the first-place Blue Jays, leading the Yankees to a 1-0 win over Toronto to continue the team's recent hot streak. Green gave up only two hits, didn't issue a walk and struck out 11 batters, becoming only the second rookie in franchise history to record 11 or more Ks in a game while allowing no runs or walks. The Yankees' lone run came, naturally, from Judge, as the rookie laced an RBI double against R.A. Dickey in the fourth, part of a 2-for-3 night. Judge is 5-for-10 (.500) with two homers and three RBI in his first three games. "I just try to go up there and do a job; be a consistent part of this lineup and just make contact," Judge said before the game. "If I can just stick to my approach and just try to get the barrel on the ball, good things will happen." The win - the Yankees' fifth in the past six games - left Joe Girardi and his club 4.5 games behind the Red Sox for the second AL wild card spot. It also moved the Bombers within 5.5 games of the first-place Jays, giving something bigger to think about over these final seven weeks. Chad Green tosses six shutout innings, allowing just two hits while striking out 11. Green had not fared particularly well as a starter this season, posting a 1-2 record and 7.50 ERA in his four starts with the Yankees while allowing eight homers in only 18 innings. His work as a reliever had been stellar, however, throwing 9.1 scoreless innings over four appearances. At least that's how it looked on the surface, but Girardi said Monday the team hadn't seen the fastball command they saw in his July 3 start against the Padres, even during his scoreless relief work. "His key is going to be his command," Girardi said before the game. "His command of his cutter, the command of his fastball and his breaking ball. If he has those, he's going to do fine." Green certainly looked fine in the early innings on Monday, retiring the first-place Blue Jays in order in each of the first three innings. Having seen the entire lineup once, Green went back to work in the fourth, handling the top of the batting order with ease as he extended his streak to 12 straight outs to start the game. Dickey had kept the Yankees off the board to that point, though it had been a little more of a struggle. The Yankees put the first two men on base in both the first and second, but the ex-Met clamped down both times, getting the next three outs to keep the game scoreless. A pair of one-out walks by Brian McCann and Gary Sanchez had Dickey in trouble again in the fourth. This time, Judge made him pay, lashing a double into the right-center field gap to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead. Dickey came back and struck out Aaron Hicks and Jacoby Ellsbury to limit the damage, keeping the pressure on the rookie Green. Green fanned Michael Saunders to start the fifth, but Troy Tulowitzki broke up the no-hitter with a single to left, then Darrell Cecilliani doubled to right field, putting the tying run at third and the go-ahead run at second. The rookie didn't buckle under the pressure, striking out Justin Smoak with a slider before freezing Melvin Upton Jr. with a 94 mph two-seamer, stranding the runners. Green went on to strike out the side in the sixth, giving him five straight strikeouts and 11 overall in his six innings. Dickey departed after five innings of one-run ball, but the Yankees threatened to break the game open in the sixth against Joe Biagini, who loaded the bases with one out. Ellsbury hit one back to the mound for an easy force play at the plate, then Chase Headley swung through a 95 mph heater to end the rally with the score still 1-0. Green's night was finished after six innings and 104 pitches, but Tyler Clippard breezed through the seventh and Adam Warren pitched a scoreless eighth, setting up Dellin Betances for his fifth save.

    This guy is proving to be an albatross for the Yankees until they get rid of him at the end of the season. Read on. It's just another reason for me to hate this guy. Mark Teixeira shoots down trade possibility: ‘I’m staying put’ Mark Teixeira The Yankees have made it clear Tyler Austin will continue to get a chance to prove himself at first base, but that doesn’t mean Mark Teixeira is going anywhere. With the Marlins potentially in the market for a first baseman, Teixeira was asked if he would waive his no-trade clause to head south. “No,” Teixeira told The Post. “You know [general manager Brian Cashman] and I have talked about it and it’s not something that I think would benefit me or the Yankees. So no, I’m staying put.” Teixeira was back in the lineup Monday night against Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey after two days off as the Yankees used Austin while Teixeira rested his balky knee. While the Yankees weren’t actively trying to move the first baseman, Cashman said the two talked briefly about the possibility and decided both sides would benefit from having Teixeira around the rest of the season — not only to contribute in whatever playoff push the Yankees might make, but also to play a part in providing leadership for the recently remade roster. Teixeira has been ravaged by injuries the past few years and is one of the veteran players remaining from the trade-deadline purge that sent Andrew Miller, Aroldis Chapman and Carlos Beltran packing — followed shortly by the release of Alex Rodriguez on Saturday. “[Teixeira] has been swinging the bat better and his knee felt better,” manager Joe Girardi said. “A couple days off helped him and that’s something I know we’re gonna have to deal with the next 50 or so games, managing that knee.” Aaron Hicks With Brett Gardner out of the starting lineup again on Monday thanks to the ball he took off his ankle on Friday, Aaron Hicks got another start in left field. “I think he’s swung the bat much, much better,” Girardi said. “He was asked to learn a different role than he’s ever been through. It couldn’t have been easy because every time he didn’t get a hit, he was probably over-evaluated [about] why he was playing and some other people weren’t playing.” Girardi said he believed that took a toll on the struggling outfielder. “He had to play with pressure because he heard the questions,’’ Girardi said. “He’s probably on Twitter. I’d recommend if you’re a player, you’re never on it. But circumstances have changed and he’s played better.” But with Aaron Judge playing every day in right and Gardner soon to return, Hicks will likely soon return to his part-time job, so he’ll have to get used to not getting as many at-bats again. The Yankees were still waiting Monday night on Nathan Eovaldi’s second opinion for his elbow injury. … Recently demoted Luis Severino is scheduled to start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    I love this thread! LOVE IT!! Keep it up. Oh, maybe I can answer your question about Teixeira ever going to Portugal. I honestly doubt it because he probably can't even spell it.
  5. 1976 Mod Problem

    Who says you got to install it to patch 5? Patch 5 is nothing but a roster update and you don't need that.
  6. MLB 16 The Show Impressions

    I understand what you mean. And playing the game that you enjoy the most just makes sense. The games I play are Mvp '05, Tony Larussa II (old game but still is fun) Hardball 5, the High Heat series and All-Star Baseball on the original X-box. As for the amount of games I have played on Mvp I couldn't even take a guess. Even after eleven years I still enjoy it and that's all that matters.
  7. MLB 16 The Show Impressions

    Just curious, how do you feel about Mvp 2005? I've been playing different versions of that game for eleven years now (total conversion mods, etc) and I am still very happy with that.
  8. Windows just DELETED MY ENTIRE GAME

    You're right. Game copy world furnishes these fixes provided that you do own the original game. It helps!
  9. Could you help me with changing my username?

  10. Windows just DELETED MY ENTIRE GAME

    Holy *&$^. I have never heard of this before. Best of luck getting your game back.
  11. XBOX 2016 Mods

    You're right. The mods that are here in the download section were specifically made for the Xbox. Although there is something called the PC to Xbox conversion tool but I don't know how well this works or if at all.

    Hahahahahaha
  13. Help with updating the game

    Download Mvp 15 and then the latest rosters. Then you are all set.
  14. That's not really fair now. All this guy was told was that it would have been better to have added his question to the Windows 10 support thread that was here already. KC did come up with the answer for him and I am sure that it will work for this guy but I am kind of curious as to why you are thanking DaSteelerz? Exactly what did he do except lead a cheer for KC? KC did a great job coming in here to straighten this out for that guy and I hope this person comes back in here to report that everything is working for him now. Ok, now after I said that don't you think I deserve a thank you too ?
  15. MVP 2015 - Speedy Gonzales

    Again, there is already a Mvp 15 Support thread here that can and will help you with your problem. There are nine pages of information in that thread and there was no need for you to create a separate thread.
