  1. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Reading between the lines of Cashman's remarks about it, sounds like they'll give him a shot to earn the job out of ST but that they kinda anticipate starting him in AAA (which makes sense given he had limited ABs there before getting hurt). Also I really should know this but don't have the time to look it up right now but I believe if he spends another few weeks in the minors the Yankees gain another year of control. I'm usually up to date on service time issue in-season but my memory is getting rough nowadays.
  2. New York Yankees 2018 Outlook

    If the Marlins asked for Torres in this deal the Yankees would've laughed and hung up. It'll be second tier prospects (for the Yankees). Maybe Acevedo/McKinney, guys at that level.
  3. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    No, of course not. The YS factor is going to be overplayed. Fact is it plays very deep to dead center and it's deep to left center as well. Stanton doesn't have the opposite field power that Judge has so he won't benefit from it quite as much, IMO.

    They'll still be after Machado.
  5. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Stanton to Yankees is getting close, per Twitter
  6. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    By packaging him with a good young prospect, which they have a lot of right now.

    27% K rate in Japan. I think the idea of him being an everyday hitter (or most days, even) will be scrapped pretty quickly.
  8. Until next week when he's dealing with another nagging injury. Lack of durability is a major issue and has been for his entire time in the NBA.
  9. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Season Outlook

    Always a red flag for me when you see a guy who's afraid to play in the biggest markets.
  10. 2018 Sleepers/Value Picks

    Broader point was injuries have already sapped him of some of his talent... and the chances of him getting healthier as he gets older are not good. Pass for me.
  11. New York Yankees 2018 Outlook

    As a Yankees fan, I'm not a fan of the hire. Would've much preferred Meulens. Or better yet, David Cone (who wasn't interviewed but expressed his interested to Cashman). I've listened to Boone talk about baseball for hours and hours on ESPN broadcasts and never came away particularly impressed. And on a more personal level he's just a hard guy to listen to for an extended period of time... have concerns about how that will effect the clubhouse over the course of a 162-game season.
  12. As a Knicks fan it's one of the reasons in the offseason I wasn't apoplectic about the idea of packaging him for the Brooklyn pick and other assets when the rumor arose. Really doubt his ability to stay healthy for extended periods of time, and when he does play hurt it drastically impacts his efficiency/effectiveness. Unfortunately he's a bit of a novelty act due to his size and skillset so people look past his lack of durability and think of what could be instead of what is likely to be. Just my two cents.
  13. Funny he said that because he's seemingly always hurt. His lack of durability has been a concern of mine ever since he came into the league.
  14. Must-win week to have a shot at the playoffs. Should I go with Doctson @ Dallas or Westbrook vs. the Colts?
