  • Awesome. Love the big guy.
    Great clubhouse presence.

    As a long time Yankees fan, it sure will be a lot of fun watching all the home runs hit to that right field porch. That being said, I do worry a bit that the addition of Stanton is will cause the admittedly small advancement in playing small ball that were made late last season to regress.

    There are some questions regarding their starting pitching, their bullpen on the other hand is one of the leagues best, but resigning CC was a great move as he is a clubhouse leader. Potential future starters Chance Adams and Justus Sheffield are hopefully going to get lots of looks in Spring Training.

    All in all, I think 2018 will be one fun season for Yankees fans.

    yea small ball is going to be extinct. they don't want to give up outs. that's the money ball analytics sabermetrics way. It's going to be go big or strike out.That's why they don't mind that a hitter hits .240 and has 200K. As long as he can hit 30hr and drive in 120+

    Would anything less than a World Series appearance be disappointing for the 2018 season?

    Not a fan of these Cole rumors.  Obviously not giving up Torres, but regardless, I feel it's gonna be too much for an unknown.

    We don't know if Torres is overhyped or not. But I don't want that trade to happen. Didn't Cole turn us down when we drafted him?

    Nah, they'll never do Torres for cole. Yeah, they drafted him but he went to school.

    Glorious, though they got a few legit dudes already in the bigs

    Yanks better not give up Fraizer and Adams for Cole. They won't, they better not.

    you kidding me? cole is the real deal.

    the last 2 years he's been average. And he gave up 31 home runs last year.

    Gerrit Cole to Astros. They aren't playing around.

    Edit: Or not.  Looks like Pittsburgh likes putting these fake rumors out there.

    So the yanks have the 2nd best farm in baseball with Sanchez, judge and severino in the big leagues...and they traded for the reigning NL MVP.

    This team getting under the luxury tax. Astros, Cubs, dodgers clearly not going anywhere but I don’t think people realize how bright the future is for the yanks.

    This team is absolutely stacked.

    are you confident with this pitching staff?

    Betances can use some help and will only get better, there's Sheffield coming up soon, Severino has become an ace, then there is the three A's coming up soon also in Acevedo, Abreu and Adams.

    They will be just fine.
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 26,752
    I am not terribly concerned about the staff.  Tanaka was nails at the end of the year. Hopefully Severino can be close to what he was. Sonny Gray is flying under the radar.  They should be fine.  Like tempo said, kids on the way too.

    It's too bad he's so stuck in his ways and can't see how the game has changed.  He is a fun interview though.
