  1. Didi Gregorius 2018 Outlook

    On a fan level, he's my favorite Yankee at the moment. I hope they don't move on.

    You're not gonna get him on a Neil Walker deal, for sure.

    Problem for the Yanks is it's another lefty in the lineup missing for at least the first half of the season. Definites in 2019: 1. Hicks (S) 2. Sanchez (R) 3. Stanton (R) 4. Judge (R) 5. Torres (R) 6. Andujar (R) 7. Voit/Bird (R/L) Gardner probably gone
  4. Aaron Boone - Yankees Manager

    So I think the warmup thing is a red herring. Whatever the cause is pretty irrelevant - Boone should have done with Severino what Cora did with Price - yank him ASAP. Instead he stuck with him until the game was out of hand and then brought in Lynn instead of any one of the dominant short relievers on standby. That's ok in August but not in a best of five series, especially at home. I suppose it's possible the sheer embarrassment of getting blown out like that will light a fire under the likes of Didi and McCutchen, but I think this series is over and it's pretty squarely Boone's fault. To me this ranks up there with Buck Showalter not bringing in Zach Britton in the '16 WC game. Just indefensible.
  5. 2019 Draft Steals

    I'm not sure he'll be a particularly good or bad value because I expect that at best he'll have to compete for the job in spring training. So assuming you draft after the decision has been made he'll be going where an everyday first baseman with power in that lineup would go, or he won't be drafted at all. That is of course absent any offseason moves they make that might affect the position. I can frankly see a scenario where he is traded too. I think the better chance of a steal in that lineup is Gary Sanchez. I suspect this year was more the outlier.

    His last two games probably merit an update.
  7. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    Shortly after Corey Seager was ruled out for the year I moved Andrew Benitendi and Kris Bryant for Alex Bregman and Francisco Lindor. I thought I was overpaying for MI coverage but it obviously made my season.

    OPS over 1.000 the last week.
  9. Gary Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    Not sure where even to begin on this. I'm literally staring at the screen and my thoughts are all trying to get through the door at the same time like the Marx Brothers.
  10. 9/13 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Any thoughts on E-Rod against Toronto?
  11. Luckily if perhaps strangely there aren't really any major league teams in the direct path of Florence. Cincinnati, Washington and Baltimore probably the most likely to see rain as a result but haven't checked to see if they're even home this weekend. The Durham Bulls made it to their playoffs and will play all five games of their series against Scranton up in PA.
  12. Cedric Mullins 2018 Outlook

    Looks like he's sliding right into center.
  13. Marwin Gonzalez 2018 Outlook

    Modest 4-game hitting streak, but more importantly he's played in 8 games straight. Could be useful while guys like Springer are on the shelf.
  14. Kevin Gausman 2018 Outlook

    I don't think you can dismiss the fact that Baltimore, no matter who's in been in charge, hasn't developed a genuine frontline pitcher since Mike Mussina. Gausman may or may not flip a switch in Atlanta but I think he stands a far better chance of meeting his potential there.
