  1. Still waiting on Greg Bird to emerge... he's been spending too much time with Ellsbury 😂
  2. So this is what I've come up with. I don't see the Yankees being as active with free agency as people might think. Their offseason moves will revolve around who they choose to bring back with a roster that has a lot of depth. SP1 - Gerrit Cole SP2 - Luis Severino SP3 - James Paxton SP4 - Masahiro Tanaka SP5 - J.A. Happ / Domingo German / Jordan Montgomery RP - Zack Britton RP - Luis Cessa RP - Chad Green RP - Adam Ottavino RP - Tommy Kahnle RP - Jonathan Loaisiga RP - Tyler Lyons / Nestor Cortes Jr. / Stephen Tarpley C - Austin Romine, Gary Sanchez 1B - Luke Voit 2B - DJ LeMahieu SS - Gleyber Torres 3B - Gio Urshela / Miguel Andujar LF - Clint Frazier / Mike Tauchman / Brett Gardner CF - Aaron Hicks RF - Aaron Judge DH - Giancarlo Stanton Leave via Free Agency: Didi Gregorius Cameron Maybin Edwin Encarnacion Aroldis Chapman (opt out) Dellin Betances C.C. Sabathia (retirement) Free Agents to be re-signed Austin Romine Brett Gardner? Free Agents to be signed Gerrit Cole Major stories will include the following: - Do the Yankees Let Didi walk? - Does Chapman opt out of his current deal? If he does, do the Yankees let him walk? - Does Cashman make the big splash and bolster the rotation with Cole by making him an offer he can't refuse? - What will come of the domestic violence case pending against Domingo German? - Do the Yankees bring Betances back after an injury plagued year? How much money can he realistically ask for? - Do the Yankees bring back Gardner on a 1 year deal to an already crowded outfield? Gardner had a career high .503 slugging percentage with 28 HR in 2019. I would personally re-sign Romine, let everyone else walk, and give Cole whatever he wants to come play in NY. There's more than enough depth to fill out this roster internally. And there's plenty more players down on the farm. Some of the young core (Judge, Sanchez) will be arbitration eligible, so cutting payroll by letting everyone walk will offset things in my eyes, and they'll just get more expensive in the years to come.
  3. Throwing him out there with the favorable matchup, and it being early in the week. Also his rehab numbers were pretty good (allowed only 1 BB in 21.1 IP) so that was very encouraging. Usually after TJ surgery, control is the last thing to come back.
  4. Can someone with actual baseball expertise explain to me how Felix has seemingly fallen off a cliff in the last few years? He's still relatively young at 33 years old. I wonder if he could reinvent himself, if not with Seattle, then maybe elsewhere.
  5. "More power!!!" - Brian Cashman. Seriously though, as a Yankees fan, where do you play all these guys once everyone is healthy? There was already a logjam with the guys that can only DH. They must have gotten him for next to nothing.
  6. Having this guy slotted at catcher gives the Yankees such a huge advantage over most teams running a AAA bat in their lineup. I always wonder if his long term future is behind the dish though. His defense is much improved this year.
  7. If you watch the video you can hear Judge dropping the F bomb as he walks to the clubhouse. I think he realizes the significance of the injury. I'd say 6-8 weeks, making the target return date early June.
  8. You guys think the Yankees Royals play today? I have tickets to the game but don't want to waste my time traveling to the Bronx if it's going to be called. Anyone with insider info?
  9. I bought into him this year, believing what he did in the postseason. Mayhaps we were duped? That Red Sox team sure isn't playing well in the early goings though, so it's hard to say.
  10. I think it's so strange how a guy who only has one season with an OPS over .900 is considered one of the best in the game today, and will command 40 million dollars a year.
  11. People are already speculating how much money he's going to earn in free agency. Am I the only one that thinks he isn't worth top dollar? Career .330 OBP and OPS in the low .800s. Not my idea of elite. Harper on the other hand...
  12. Is this guy staying in the rotation? Lynn wasn't moved at the deadline and Wainwright comes off the DL soon. It's a shame to see such talent rot away in the minors.
