    What sucks about the deal is Bauer is such a nut job. I’m with you, I don’t like this deal at all.

    1. I like CF
    2. Bauer is a douche

    Yea but CF is expendable and we desperately need a SP. It would take a lot more than CF to get Bauer.

    Not sure how I feel about Bauer with what it will take to get him. Feel like I'd rather shell out for a true ace or just get Minor or Stroman for cheaper.

    Yea not a huge Bauer fan but I could get over it bc he's damn good. I'd give up my soul for Max though.

    Or even Grienke. His velocity is way down from his prime but he's still performing at ace level. Not exactly sure how many years he has left on his deal and how that'll age though.

    Bumgarner should probably be the top choice. Bauer comes across as a prick, so I’m not sure about him. That means Stroman would be my 2nd choice. You’d have to think Toronto is gonna want more to send him in division.

    The real top guy is Scherzer, but that contract is insane.

    Grienke can’t play for the Yanks, he wouldn’t even last as long as Gray.

    He probably has a NTC and would never approve it too.

    Yea I wish we knew more about how Max's contract would play if he was dealt. He's due $42m the next 2 years but parts of that is deferred for a long time. The Nats would have to eat some of that to move him. Maybe they eat the deferred amount? I'd take him at $35m per year. He's that good.

    Agree it's different but if he can handle LA, I think he can handle NY. I just think the stuff from early in his career is overblown now. Zona is in the WC chase though so I don't see them dealing him so I doubt we'll ever have a chance to find out.

    I personally don't care that Bauer is a douche or a prick. We actually have quite the history of bringing in guys like that (Reggie, Winfield, Rickey, Clemens, A-Rod), so as long as he performs I wouldn't really care.

    That being said, this would be my list:
    1) Scherzer - Doesn't show any signs of faltering as he enters his mid-30's. Top 3 in the league among all starters in in most advanced stats since 2016 (K rate, FIP, SIERA). Does have a monster contract, but would be under control through 2021. 1st ballot Hall of Famer and the type of arm we haven't had on our staff in a long time.
    2) Bauer - Elite numbers since the start of last year (2.67 ERA, 10.7 K/9) and would be under team control through 2020.
    3) Matt Boyd - Truly coming into his own in his age 28 (and coincidentally, Super Two) season. Leads the league in K/BB rate and would be under team control through 2022. Frankly I'm not sure why Detroit is shopping him, even with Mize and Manning on the horizon.
    4) Bumgarner - Would be a one-year rental and would have to approve of the deal since he has a no-trade clause to the Yanks. By the sounds of it he's going to want an extension to accompany any trade, which could really complicate things.
    5) Minor - He's back to looking like the guy he was coming out of Vandy a decade ago and with the Braves in 2012/2013. He's rediscovered his changeup (top 5 in the league in P val) and his fastball and slider are good again, as well. He's also signed through 2020 which is nice.
    6) Stroman - I really have no interest in seeing him in pinstripes. 6.37 ERA in nine career starts at Yankee Stadium, the worst park for him by far (of parks he's had two or more starts at). I'd rather see us go after more bullpen arms then see us roll the dice on Stroman.

    Stanton is playing today and batting 5th. Lineup is as follows
    LeMahieu
    Voit
    Hicks
    Sanchez
    Stanton
    Encarnacion
    Gregorius
    Torres
    Maybin

    This is obviously a righty heavy lineup, but why is Hicks hitting 3rd still? He has been terrible from that spot. If Boone wants to breakup the righty bats, at least swap him and Didi.

    Hicks has been great for a few years now. I'm cool with not overreacting to a rough couple weeks when just getting back into the lineup.

    I wouldn’t say he’s been great with the bat. He was very good last year in the lead off spot and cleanup, he has just seemed to struggle when he hits 3rd, this year and last.

    I hope he makes me eat my words.

    Also I love the idea of keeping Maybin up and going with 13 position players.

    The other note is that they want to keep Frazier and won’t trade him for a rental

    Think so? Maybe they still prefer him in LF and Stanton at DH in the future?

    Florial is the high end prospect I suspect teams will come calling for.

    Great Athletic article about Gleyber:

    https://theathletic.com/1041421/201...ow-why-he-might-be-the-future-of-the-yankees/
    .
    There was a moment in the eighth inning of the Yankees’ 4-1 win over the Astros that demonstrated more than any other the development Gleyber Torres has undergone in his first 14 months as a major leaguer. Houston outfielder Josh Reddick hit a ground ball up the middle off Zack Britton while first baseman Tyler White headed toward second.

    Reddick scorched the sinker, and it came off the bat at 104 mph. Torres made it to the ball, then flipped the ball out of his glove to Didi Gregorius, initiating an inning-ending and potentially game-saving double play.

    “I don’t practice that,” Torres said after the game. “I think it’s just in the moment, and I’m happy to make that double play.”

    A year ago, Torres might have flinched or panicked in an attempt to initiate the play. He committed 12 errors at second base in 2018, many of which looked like mental mistakes. He hasn’t logged enough innings at second this year to compare year-over-year (and publicly available defensive metrics for infielders are still very flawed), but in at least one important play Friday night he looked calm, collected and much more polished than his 22 years would otherwise seem to indicate.

    It can be difficult to remember that Torres is only 22 years old, right? He carries himself with maturity and poise and has been faring quite well against the talented major-league pitchers he’s faced thus far this season.

    He hit home run No. 18 against the Astros on Friday, marking his third consecutive game with a long ball. (His flew out 364 feet; Gary Sánchez, who drove in the only runs off Astros starter Brad Peacock, hit one 481 feet. Torres joked after the game that he was just trying to follow the catcher’s lead.)

    Torres is hitting .287/.347/.544 this season, which equates to a 131 wRC+ — or 31 percent better than a league-average hitter. Only Nationals outfielder Juan Soto entered Friday’s games with a higher OPS than Torres among qualified hitters 22 or younger.

    “My goodness,” Aaron Judge said after Friday night’s game. “When I was 22 I was playing in Single-A Charleston. He’s up here facing the best of the best. Seeing what he’s been doing has been impressive. He’s the star of this team. The future of this team.”

    At age 22, most major leaguers had not even made it to Single-A pro ball, but the message from Judge is clear: Torres is a prodigy. He’s the youngest player to appear in a game for the Yankees this season, just as he was in 2018. Yes, 10 of his 18 home runs have been against the Orioles, but the last three have now been off two Astros and a Ray — the top of the top when it comes to effective major-league pitching.

    Torres said he entered the 2019 season with two goals: “Stay healthy all year and be consistent every night and every day.”

    Missions accomplished thus far, nearly halfway through his first full season. He chalked up his increased power hitting to his offseason conditioning routine and to being a little older than last season, but he credited each day’s game plan with his overall consistent success.

    “Every day I do my routine,” Torres said. “I go with a really good plan to home plate, and I just try to do damage and help my team.”

    Torres’ plate discipline this season compared to his rookie season illustrates the growth and maturity he’s accomplished in Year 2. He’s swinging more often now but whiffing less often; he’s making more contact on pitches in the zone, and he’s barreling up more balls put into play.

    His actual batted-ball profile makes his offensive production this season even more impressive: He’s hitting more ground balls and fewer line drives, and yet his average, on-base percentage and slugging rates are up.

    Torres described himself Friday night as a contact hitter, and while his rate of balls put into play is consistent between 2018 and 2019, he’s making contact on close to 5 percent more pitches he sees.

    “He’s becoming a great player,” manager Aaron Boone said. “Just proud of his continued taking pride in getting better at the little things to make his game complete. He continues to work really hard at that and obviously, the results have been there and he’s been a great player for us.”

    “I am still trying to learn the game every night,” Torres admitted Friday night. But, when asked to describe how he felt after hitting his third home run in three consecutive games, he was visibly excited: “I’m happy, first of all. I love the feeling when I do my job and help the team. I’ll just try to do my job and continue to help the team.”

    "“My goodness,” Aaron Judge said after Friday night’s game. “When I was 22 I was playing in Single-A Charleston. He’s up here facing the best of the best. Seeing what he’s been doing has been impressive. He’s the star of this team. The future of this team.”

    They mentioned that Green hadn't pitched back to back nights all year. I guess with him having to pitch yesterday even briefly they decided to take it easy on him.
