    So it's based on 3 starts?

    Bryan Mata's last 3 starts as good a Schmidt's last 3 starts. And Mata is 3 years younger...

    I believe it's called Yankem Talk Forum.

    Man, you really have a very selective and ever-changing criteria for judging Yankee talent levels.

    Alex is a very smart guy, but he's basically saying the same thing as me:

    if 2020 is the reset year...i'd just as soon have Sale blow his elbow out today and get the surgery.
    2021 we are back in business.

    That was my thought early-on. Not to wish any bad luck on Sale, but if that's the case get him taken care of now. He can take our "lost" season off to recuperate, then come back strong in 2021.

    Speier is a very smart guy. Frankly (obviously I am just a guy on the internet), I think trading Betts is like a >50% possibility, and this will be one of the goals of said trade.

    If they know it's coming, can they just do the surgery before it blows?

    I have no idea about that but more importantly, how's the water situation in your part of Houston?

    My wife was almost trapped at her school. She moved her van just in time to a higher part of the parking lot, and the water almost reached the doors!

    She just got home. It took her 95 mins instead of 45.

    We are not flooded here on the SW side.

    Thanks for asking.

    I thought you wanted the Sox to go for it one last time in 2020.

    If 2020 becomes a ďlostĒ season without Sale, the Sox should move Betts ASAP and there is zero point in tendering a contract offer to Bradley...

    Yankee fans can never say anything bad about any Yankee prospect. Unless itís on the tail end of praising 3 other prospects...

    Obviously I have no control or personal knowledge about Sale's condition. Again obviously, I do not want for them to 'go for it' if Sale isn't going to be able to contribute. It's the same with JDM (if he opts out I don't want to "go for it"), Price - same thing.

    Saying I wanted to go for it in 2020 was, of course, contingent upon our having a team with the talent to go for it.


    If Sale is healthy and JDM and Price come back and it's not a lost season then there is every reason to not move Betts and there is a point in contending a contract offer to Bradley.

    I've seen quite a few Sox fans get all gah-gah over young Sox prospects or players after a couple months, a couple weeks or even a couple ABs, so I guess it's not so unbelievable for a few Yankee fans to do the same.

    I guess what bugs me is how the criteria always changes when he's evaluating Sox players & prospects. At least harmony uses the same criteria all the time, but some times modulates the time sample to make Sox players look worse.
