Bone dry because they all in the majors. Betts, Bradley, Boegarts, Benintendi, Devers, Vasquez, etc.

I know.  Plus traded a bunch away for Sales.  Like the Mets a couple of years ago when Harvey, deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz, Wheeler, Conforto, Familia, and co. all came up.  Then they traded Fulmer to the Tigers for Cespedes.

Yea I'm not complaining about Sale deal. Best pitcher in baseball and only making like $12M or something.

He's not even playing. Sale's numbers more impressive in AL East.

Pedroia might go to DL. if so, pack it up

I'd take all 4 of those guys first before Severino. And if ERod didn't get hurt him too.

Idk bud.  I kinda like it for the fact we dealt two guys who had major injuries.  If they come back and fulfill their potential then we might have overpaid.  But thats a big if.  Gray is a top of the rotation starter. Time will tell but im all for it.

I'm dead serious. I think Severino is overrated and will be nothing more than back end of rotation guy.

Here's my list if I had both teams' starters.


Sale
Price
Porcello (down year this year but guy has proven himself many years)
Pomeranz
E Rod (huge upside- thx Orioles)
Severino
Sonny Gray

Go Royals
Go Indians
Go Astros
Go Dodgers/Nats

Yanks can't get them through them all, and we will be healthier/better next year than Yanks anyway.

I'll backtrack a little, I thought Florial went. You're absolutely right it's a good move. Yanks are taking the division

In what alternate universe is a guy that throws 100 with movement 100 pitches into a start over rated? He's third in the Cy Young running. I'll save you a post, I realize Sale has it locked up. I actually think you're trolling and I bit like a tuna

I'm a baseball umpire and yesterday I umpired Brandon Phillips son in a tournament. Let me tell you I've never seen a 12 year old hit a ball like he did. Great genetics.

I bet. Growing up I played basketball against Ben Gordon and football against Ray Rice. Neither were real big but they were men amongst boys.

Scherzer and Sale won the 2017 CY Young's already.

Saving himself for the playoffs. Like moving day in a PGA major. How many games have Yankees won in the last 8 or 9. It's a team sport.

Haha, yea i'm sure Judge enjoys shitting the bed to a tune of .169. He will never compete in HR Derby again I'm betting.

If Girardi doesn't win a playoff series, he will not be back next year. It's on a silver platter for him. Even the Red Sox GM called them the Golden State Warriors. World Series or he should be fired! I'm betting they can't get out of ALDS (assuming they even win AL East). If they have to play a 1 game playoff, they are DUNZO

Man , you're such a yankee hater

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I'm actually not. But all this overhype about Judge is grinding my gears. He is quickly ascending up the ranks of my hatred list (which only contains 1 Yankee- Arod).

I'm saying the Yanks have no excuse not to win the AL East now, unless Joe G butchers it
