  1. Thank you for this. I have no idea if either of these guys has any potential, but I am still trusting Elias until he gives me a reason not to. I have to believe he saw some value in these guys and it wasnt just dumping Cashner for no reason. Not sure if either will amount to anything, but rather a high risk/high reward young guy then a low ceiling older prospect. Initial impression is that I like the trade. I am putting my trust in Elias/Sig/Kolby until they give me reason to feel otherwise.
  2. According to John Heyman he was released so they would just have to give the prorated league minimum. According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, "no less than 11 clubs have inquired" about free agent reliever Cody Allen. Allen was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday and then subsequently released this week after posting a 6.26 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, and 29/20 K/BB ratio across 23 innings of work for Anaheim. His struggles date back to last year with the Indians, but the former star closer can now be had for the MLB minimum salary and is sure to find a new home soon. He probably won't be getting more save chances, though. SOURCE: Jon Heyman on Twitter
  3. This makes me very nervous. I really hope Elias doesnt out smart himself. ☹️
  4. I believe they are changing it back to 15 days only for pichers next year. Also applies to minor league options. Batters will remain at 10 days for both.
  5. His first home run today was off of Eduardo Rodriguez.
  6. No blank check. I need to hear his plan and see him follow it immediately. I know it will be a few years to see results at the major league level, but i need to see the plan in motion...
  7. Not sure I understand the love for Cherrington. He did an absolutely horrible job in Boston. I want no part of him.
  8. I agree i would love to see Yaz called up! Why not?
  9. His hits have all be solid hits, either grounders to the of or line drives.
  10. This guys says the Yankees got a steal and didn't give up anything of value. i don't necessarily agree with him but thought I would share for anyone interested. https://www.nj.com/yankees/index.ssf/2018/07/why_yankees_trade_for_zach_britton_is_more_than_a.html
  11. This is a great post and I agree with most, but I wouldnt be so quick to get rid of DD. I would have a long coversation with him to understand his vision and philosophy before making any decisions on his future. If he shared my vision I would give him til the end of the year to prove himself, if he was even interested in staying. I would also want to talk with the mayor and governor to see if there were any ways we could work together to make a visit to the park as fan friendly and safe as possible. I went to the game Saturday and there were a bunch of things I would change to enhance the fan experience. Obviously the product on the field is the highest priority, but it will be a tough couple of years so need to get people to come to the games!
  12. Yuck. I want no part of Baez. Just more of the same - power with no OBP. Try to get Happ instead...
  13. I have no issues with that. I have no proof, but I highly doubt they did either one. Very frustrating. It goes back to the other thread. They seem to have no plan, they just react. You should not run a billion dollar investment that way. Not smart.
  14. Apples and oranges. The Yankees had much better teams, plus they are willing to spend the money to extend players. If the extension does not work the extra money is easily absorbed. That is not the case for us.
