I need to respond to this nonsense. Luke is the last person anyone should ever listen to about the Yankees. Just because Gary Sanchez was never able to improve his fielding doesn’t mean that Luke was right about anything.

In the past 20 years, Luke has claimed the 5 time Gold Glove winning shortstop was a terrible fielder. He’s claimed that Brett Gardner has a weak arm, simply because he is left handed and plays for the Yankees. Even though Brett Gardner is the active leader in Left Field assists. He’s the second active leader in Outfield assists. Don’t believe me? Look it up.

You see what I’m getting at? Luke automatically thinks anyone that plays for the Yankees is an awful fielder. Being a typical Red Sox fan, there is no objectivity, just hate. His hate discredits anything he says.

Luke’s take on Gary Sanchez didn’t come from an objective scouting review. Luke hates the Yankees. He hates Gary Sanchez. He wanted Gary Sanchez to fail. Just because Gary Sanchez failed doesn’t mean he knows what he is talking about. I know this because in the same exact column he writes that Aaron Judge isn’t a good fielder!

Anyone that watches Aaron Judge play knows that he is an excellent fielder. He can cover a lot of ground with his long strides. He’s quick on his feet and has great instincts. He’s tall with a good vertical, he can rob home runs and extra base hits. He has a cannon for an arm. Aaron Judge is a tremendous fielder, an asset to the team defensively. 

You can’t claim to be right about anything when you make such a ridiculous claim in the same exact post. Anybody with any kind of baseball knowledge knows that Aaron Judge is a great fielder. Luke not only harms the integrity of himself but also the integrity of Bleacher Brawls by making such a foolish claim.

Lastly, I would like to point out a statement I made on September 4th, 2019. I stated that Andrew Benintendi isn’t a good player. He benefited from hitting between the former Red Sock, Mookie Betts and JD Martinez. I said the Red Sox should trade him while he still had some value. Which is something they finally did this past offseason. They waited too long and his value did drop. They got less in return than they would have got dumping him when they traded Betts. I was right. I was right then. I was right now. I didn’t need a pat on the back and to be told I was right. Do you know why? Because I’m always right so I was used to it.

I know Luke wants to be praised. I honestly don’t blame him. He is wrong so often that the one time he is accidentally right, he wants everyone to know. But he made the critical mistake of underestimating Aaron Judge which tanked any bit of credibility that he could have possibly had.
