How much heat is Aaron Boone getting?  (And how much do you think is deserved?)

He should get a ton of heat.  His bullpen management was atrocious the last two games.

Advantage Porcello.

Seasons done. What now?

Giants? Division blows I guess. Hope they make it fun.

Machado made a pretty stupid quote for a guy entering fee agency.

Paxton?



Watched him pitch all year as Seattle is pretty local TV for me..

#3 starter at best... no clue why they threw money at him.

No stamina and an injury waiting to happen + giving away one of your top prospects?...

WOW

---3.76 ERA against mostly AL West teams and half of his starts at pitcher-friendly Safeco basically amounts to 4.50 ERA against mostly AL East competition and half of his starts at bandbox Yankee Stadium.

When will Cashman learn to stop acquiring NL or AL West pitchers with inflated stats in pitcher-friendly parks?


It didn't work with Michael Pineda. It didn't work with Sonny Gray. What makes you think it would work with Paxton?


So the Yankees got another #3 pitcher to complement their rotation full of #3 Pitchers

He does not project to be a #3 starter at best.  Sure, there's risk, but the potential is that he could be a monster.

https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-yankees-now-have-a-second-ace/

Pineda and Gray were unsuccessful for different reasons, Pineda seriously struggled with command, something Paxton doesn't seem to have an issue with.

James Paxton throws hard, and he throws strikes, and he misses bats. He doesnt allow that much loud contact. One reason hes somewhat unknown, or underappreciated, is the fact hes pitched for Seattle. The other reason is that hes had injuries. The injuries are the lone blemish, as Paxton has never proven himself a workhorse.

NY gave up a starter with control issues, who was not slated to be part of the rotation.  Paxton is a pretty major upgrade.

From a overall standpoint, the Yankees traded a season and a half of Andrew Miller for Paxton and Clint Frazier.   That's a haul.

We could've used Cano's lefty bat. Just sayin.

Quote
After days of rumblings and speculation, talks between the Mariners and Mets reached a crescendo Thursday on a blockbuster trade that would bring Robinson Cano and stud closer Edwin Diaz to Citi Field, allowing new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen to potentially strengthen his lineup and bullpen in one swoop.

According to sources, the framework of a deal has been reached and a trade between the two teams could become official as soon as Friday. The Mets are prepared to send Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak to the Mariners with former first-round draft picks Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn and likely Gerson Bautista. Van Wagenen on Thursday began informing Mets players included in the deal to prepare for a possible trade.

Seattle sure seems like a farm team for the rest of the league since Big Lou left....

What was it 2001? since then its been their motto to acquire or develop talent and give it away to the rest of the league..lol

Why would the Mets want Cano's contract?

I don't understand the Cano thing at all.

Mets are giving up their two best prospects Kelenic and Dunn, and picking up a 36 year old expensive ex roid guy.  While Cano will probably have decent seasons, Mets could have kept the prospects and signed any one of the elite relief arms.


Of course, they could likely swap Diaz for a serious haul at the trade deadline, should they not be in contention.


As for the Yankees, no way on Cano......Harper's out there, and fits perfect.

      if you were the yankees GM and had your choice would you rather have a 26 year old bryce harper for 300 plus million for 10 years or a 20 year old juan soto for next to nothing for the next 5 years????

Harper = lifetime .279 hitter with a big ego, injuries, can barely drive in 100 RBIs if he's lucky, average home run hitter, strikes out 100+ times, and will command $30mil a season..


Actually sounds perfect for the Yankees.... never mind

Soto, of course.

But there's no chance of that.

RBIs are product of opporutnity.

And a batting average of .279 doesn't mean shit when the OBP is around .400 and the slugging is over  .500.

Harper's problem is that he's had two elite years, 3 good ones, and a meh.   But if he's done this all by 26, he projects to be much better as he hits his statistical prime.

Given that, Machado's a better fit for NY, due to Didi's injury and Andujar's poor defense.

Cashman said he wants "no part" of Harper "sweepstakes"

Cashman's gotta go.

(just kidding.)

Or am I?

I never believe any of this...it's just posturing.

But now is the time to build a super team....they have the money.  No stupid budget shit.

But never on Cashman leaving - what he's done is ridiculous - Stanton/Hicks/Didi/Voit/Greene/Torres/Robertson all everyday, above average players acquired for nothing.   Judge/Severino/Betances/Andjuar all above average players from the farm.  Sanchez comeback would add to this.   The run he's had has been insane.   But now is the time to build the team that contends for the next decade.

How do you do that if the caliber of pitcher you need to compete at WS level just isn't there.

Yankees starters and their "great" bullpen proved in the last WS they can't be relied upon

They absolutely have the caliber of pitched needed.   Heck, Boston won a WS when their ace pitched like crap the whole time.   Playoffs are about timing and luck, in addition to skill - any player can get hot at the right time.  Having better players increases the chances of that happening.

2 potential aces +Tanaka is pretty great in the postseason.   Also - Kluber/Thor possibilities, as well as mid-season pickups.

That pitching staff should be one of the best in the AL.

Harper grades out as a shitty outfielder as well.  Shame on anyone who gives this fucker 30 million per season or a ten year deal.

4 years/80 million with incentive based options in years 5 & 6.

Funny how out of all the MLB fans.. not a single one wants him or lazy fcker Machado on their team..LOL

Yet every day all I read in the sports mags, TV or sports websites is how both Harper and Machado are like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Joe D all rolled into one..

WTF?

Check all the comments on articles about these fckers... no fan of any team wants anything to do with them


truly.. truly hope.. both these 2 remain unsigned and have to sit out the season

Applications have been pretty quiet.

No surprise as our leadoff hitter and ace pitcher are both out for 1/5 of the upcoming campaign.

Good news in the baseball world today.
