  1. Yeah, it can be argued that they had enough talent among the offensive skill positions. They just added another good player. That doesn't have to be a bad thing as long as they address enough of their other needs.
  2. From the RotoWorld front page: STEVEN MATZSP, NEW YORK METS According to Mike Puma and Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the Yankees have contacted the Mets regarding a possible trade for Steven Matz. The report notes that the Mets are listening, with Miguel Andujar as a player of interest, though there's naturally skepticism about anything coming together. Still, it shines a light on the Yankees' need for another arm in their rotation. Matz isn't assured of a spot in the Mets' rotation, as he's essentially competing with Michael Wacha for a spot. It's ridiculous that it has come to that for Matz, but probably even more ridiculous to trade Matz away given Wacha's injury history. That depth is going to be needed one way or the other. Consider this one highly unlikely. RELATED: New York Yankees SOURCE: New York Post Mar 2, 2020, 1:54 PM ET
  3. The Yankees were thinking of using Andujar at 1st, 3rd, and the outfield. The Mets could do that, too. If he's as good as we think he'd help the offense while the Mets would be replacing their #4 starting pitcher either from within or with one of the still free agent pitchers that were considered possibilities for the yankees. Also, Matz makes $5M this year and is under team control for one more year. Andujar only makes $617,600 and is under team control for 3 more years. In the short term this might be an odd move but long term the Mets would probably come out ahead.
  4. Maybe a.270 average with 20+ homers and 20+ steals. Part of the reason he hasn't received much hype is that he really isn't elite at anything. He doesn't have a plus hit tool and he probably won't be one of the top shortstops in homers or steals. So, his ceiling is limited. But, he doesn't have a big weakness anywhere either. And there's a lot less of a chance that he'll have to move to a different position (which is notable since a lot of shortstop prospects that make it to the majors end up at other positions).
  5. With a little luck he could be up the middle of next year.
  6. Carrasco and Boyd come to mind.
  7. Time for the Evil Empire to see what kind of starting pitching they can acquire for Andujar and/or Frazier.
  8. Paddock only pitched 140.2 innings last year so I doubt he'll pitch more than 175 this year so the Cy Young is doubtful. Isn't Whitley still with Houston? Did Whitley or Houston switch leagues? If you're predicting that Whitley will be traded to the NL and then be that good, well, THAT is bold.
  9. Why not? IF the guy is ready than why not?
  10. It would be nice if it was true. But, it sure looks like Andrew Vaughn isn't in the player pool. And if he's not in it than who knows who else might be missing.
  11. I don't think he was comparing the speed/sb potential so much as simply saying that while it helps make Franco so exciting that it (and his power and approach) might be a little overrated. I think people sometimes get carried away with top prospects.. It will be interesting to see how they do this year.
  12. Gary Sanchez C, New York Yankees Gary Sanchez slugged two solo home runs in a 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Athletics on Saturday. He victimized Homer Bailey in the second and fifth innings. The Yankee catcher now has 32 home runs in just 96 games played this year. He hasn't done a heck of a lot other than hit solo home runs though. He has a .235 batting average with 71 home runs and 55 runs scored in 407 plate appearances. He has not attempted any stolen bases. That performance is good enough to rank him as the number four overall catcher in 5x5 leagues this year according to Yahoo. Aug 31, 2019, 5:49 PM ET You'd think he'd be the #1 catcher after hitting that many homers.
  13. So, Badler thinks he'll be a top 10 prospect within the next couple years. I can buy that. Top 20 next spring and then top 10 next July.
