    always hard to see the bright side....the ol' "I'll just be happy if we win a series" always gives way to greed.

    can a team that comes back from 0-2 to force a game 7 choke? I would say the yankees did. I totally did not expect the astros to recover from the bronx.
    04 they choked this time I'd say they came up short ..

    I'll just put this here one more time. Gary Sanchez is a 30 home run catcher who has the ability to throw out almost 40% of baserunners.  You do not under any circumstance move him from catcher until every single option is exhausted. Even if he were to get no better here on out, he is a top 5 catcher in the game.

    He's a cocky kid. I don't think he is going to be very well liked outside of Yankees fans moving forward

    I have said it multiple times, but I like Sanchez even more than judge.

    I think he's a great young hitter but cannot recall watching a series where a catcher missed so many throws.  I like your team, not crapping on them..

    I know. I just get frustrated with all the change position talk for Sanchez, even with yanks fans. 30 home run catchers don't come along everyday. He has a couple issues but he's young and really fucking good. 

    Jeter was a below below average defensive short stop for the majority of his career  but no one talked about him changing positions everyday

    You know they signed Sanchez when he was 17?  They've taken their time with grooming him so I don't see him changing positions either.

    Whomever mentioned about not wanting Harper now, I'm in total agreement with you too.

    CC wants back. "We'll be here next year"
    Think the Yankees will sign him?
    Most definitely
    What kind of deal do you think he'll want? and what kind of offer do the Yankees give?(I know Cashmen  wants to stay under the Luxury Tax Threshold)

    That's the biggest shocker. But in these analytics times. They just need a Kevin Cash or David Roberts type. And tell them what moves to make from upstairs.

    Ended up pulling for the Dodgers, but the Yanks took the World Series champs to game 7.  Nothing wrong with that in a 'rebuilding year'
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 24,335
    Joe Espada to be bench coach of the Astros.  Horrible horrible 3rd base coach, but was apparently good with the kids and was well liked.  Could be a decent loss.  

    I know there was some speculation that he could be the Yanks manager, which is clearly out the door.

    Harriston Jr as a coach front runner?!?

    Harriston Jr as a coach front runner?!?
    I have always liked him a lot, but I don't know how I feel about all these would be rookie managers coming to New York.  This is a hell of a decision given where this team is and the move they just made with Girardi.  There is no screwing this one up and a rookie manager is super risky.  That said, none of the guys with big league experience are all that exciting to me.

    Shocked Tanaka is coming back. Can't beat the rest of this deal though, even if he is a kid rotation arm. That said, looked pretty pretty good at the end
