Let us have our fun and hope for the worst possible outcome. Soto was DRS -4 and OAA -9 playing LF last year. We can only hope it gets even worse in NY. Surprisingly, his 35 homers show an expected home run total of only 27 if playing all games in Yankee Stadium. In old Yankee stadium they used to call LCF Death Valley. I guess it’s still kind of big out there. Good luck in NY, Juan. NOT!
It's still a great trade and the Yankees have deep enough pockets to replenish their pitching with FAs. It doesn't reak of desperation at all to me. Literally every team should have been calling the Padres about Soto when they put him on the market because players "that good" are rarely ever available.
My thoughts exactly. I want to throw up just thinking about it. Are they going to sign “big papi” next? He strikes me as a super d bag but maybe he is a good guy and his pre pitch semantics are only so bothersome because he was a red sock. Then again,I still hate it.
