    No Schmidt actually unlike what was reported

    Think I would have rather kept him but I’m not mad either

    Big fan of Otto from his Rice days, he should get a good opportunity with the Rangers, pretty sure he had just moved up to AAA

    All the NY/national media sucking off Cashman for not giving up much by quoting prospect lists released in March is very much on brand for all of them. Brings me back to 10 years ago when people would quote advanced stats they don't understand to try to pimp players they wanted to win awards.

    The Rangers definitely got 2-3 of their top 10 prospects if lists were updated according to most. But it sounds like the rangers were given a choice of two top tier players or several quality. Chose the quantity instead

    Impossible to judge the trade right now with so many pieces. No top end prospect but so many that maybe one hits. 1.5 years of Gallo is nice we'll see how it plays out.

    And I think that's smart, because the Yankees don't really have top tier prospects. Not sure what else was out there and whether another team had some "top tier" prospects that would have made more sense for them to take over this.

    Yeah I’m not too upset about it. I like Schmidt and Volpe and I do think they’re above the rest of these players. And Dominguez really is pretty close to untouchable right now I’d assume

    I would have wanted Volpe over any of the guys they got, but I'd rather have the volume over just Volpe.

    Schmidt is 25 years old, already had TJ once, is coming off another elbow issue currently, and has thrown 123 innings in the last four years combined. Again, I'd probably take a shot on him over some of the guys they got, but I'd rather have the volume than him.

    The Yankees seem likely to finalize their acquisition of Gallo this evening, hears Mark Feinsand of MLB.com (Twitter link), but it still seems there’s some uncertainty about the ultimate trade package. Curry hears that Joely Rodríguez — not King — could be the reliever accompanying Gallo to the Bronx and suggests that only four prospects — Duran, Smith, Hauver and Otto — would be headed back to Texas

    I’d be ok with this. Still get the best prospects of the group and keep King. Rodriguez sucks and would objectively make the Yankees worse

    Have to imagine Dominguez is a non starter, saw somewhere today that the Marlins asked for Volpe in a Marte trade and NYY passed.

    Bryant has already sat out a few games in the second half due to minor injuries. I think there’s probably something to it for him. I expect him to be traded in the next 12 hours.

    Ain’t worth it imo. Both of them project as torp and now that the Yankees traded for Gallo and the a’s traded for Marte, they’d have to keep with/pass both of them to even make the 2nd wc. Don’t think berrios makes that happen
