Yessir, and they got him for a headcase and two injured guys.
 
Extreme groundball pitcher in YS is a good thing.  Only question is if he stays healthy.

Pickups of Robertson / Kahnle / Gray are massive upgrades without any sacrifice of long term plans.   Rookies all playing well, with the only downer being the Torres / Fowler injuries.

With a few things going right and the 2019 FA class, Yankees future looks good.

the present looks good too.  :)

i'm down for another (long overdue) Yankees-Dodgers World Series ... would take me back to the first two WS that I followed avidly as a kid ('77, '78) and then '81 too.
