Thread: Paxton out 3-4 months

  1. #1

    Paxton out 3-4 months

    He just had back surgery. This puts him on track for May-June, likely the latter. Thank god we have Cole!

    Not ideal since German is also gonna miss the first couple of months. But maybe we'll get an extended look at Deivi or Schmidt which would be cool.

    You guys laugh in the face of sidelined players anyway.

    This isnít the worst news. We will now keep Happ to the deadline and JMont has the inside track to the 5th starter spot. We have big league depth. We have minor league depth. Our pen is intact. Our lineup is intact. We will still crush

    Not this year. Maybe WC?

    The Sox rotation without Price and Porcello is a big downgrade.

    Bloom isn't finished yet. He has money to play with.

    2020 will be the start of our next back to back to back.

    You are pretty funny Kimmi. 2020 will be the year of the Yankee. We have enough big league depth to absorb German AND Paxton missing the first two months of the season. We also have enough minor league depth to absorb further injuries. With our bullpen and our offense, we will be able to bludgeon teams when the starter doesn't go well. We have a two headed monster better than anyone in baseball (outside of maybe Washington) with Cole and Severino. Tanaka is a damn good mid rotation guy. Montgomery has to have the inside edge to a spot. Happ wasn't exactly good last year, but finished with increased velo and performance.

    Interestingly enough, our schedule is pretty balanced this year. Last year, we seemed to feed on the O's early and the Jays late, but it seems to be a bit more equal. Over the first 2 months, we face

    Orioles 7
    Rays 7
    Jays 6
    A's 3
    Rangers 3
    Reds 3
    Tigers 7
    Indians 3
    Pirates 2
    Red Sox 3
    Astros 3
    Brewers 3
    Mariners 4
    Twins 3
    Angels 3

    That is 60 games, 26 of them vs the Mariners, O's, Tigers, Pirates, or Jays, all teams expected to be at or near the bottom of the entire league in wins. While we see the Jays and O's more spread out, we do get our Tigers 2 series and the IL series vs the Pirates out of the way early, lending towards a nice coast into the season.

    I think the Jays will be competitive this year. My guess is they'll finish around .500 or slightly better. The O's on the other hand will probably lose 120 games. My guess for the Yankees' first 60 is 36-24.
