Thread: Yankees 2020 offseason thread

  1. #46
    Also, yanks opted into Brittonís 2022 season, which locks him in for two more years. Back of the pen stays intact with a solid 7-8-9 bridge with Green-Britton-Chap. Loaisiga and Cessa took steps forward in 2020. Hoping to see those two really take on a bigger role to allow for the big 3 to not be worn out. The pen is full of very hard throwers (Cessa and Loaisiga can get to or near 100mph). Might need to look into another lefty out there (Brad Hand night slip to us!).

    Dark horse for the Yanks will be Morton. I do wonder if heís a major target for us. Heís also a Delaware guy, so pretty close to home

He gets exposed every time he hits and if a pitcher throws anything away or off speed, he cannot hit it. Itís time for him to find another spot and if he dominates there, good for him.
    But.. but.. but have you seen his exit velocity?!

    With prices expected to plummet, I think the Yanks just pass on Gary. No point in shelling out $6 mil for him unless they think they can fix him
    The rebuild is complete.

    He might be a non-tender candidate.

    If every team in baseball is passing on Brad Hand at $10mill, the chances one team is going to do the Yankees a favor and give up talent for Gary Sanchez at $6mill is very small.

    That said, the White Sox declined Edwin Encarnacion's option and might not mind accommodating Sanchez. A trade of Sanchez plus $4mill for Reynaldo Lopez actually makes sense for both teams.

    (And would irritate me, as Lopez is one of the bounceback guys I think whose numbers vastly underepresent him. He's a guy the Red Sox need to target.)

    Looks like the Yanks are in on Yadier Molina. I do wonder if a guy like Cole got to the GM about how bad Gary was at catching and they're working to rectify it.

    Also, Yanks in on Lance Lynn. I never like bringing guys back for second tours of duty when they failed the first time. Reminds me of Javy Vazquez
    The rebuild is complete.

    I keep forgetting about German. Heís pitching in the winter leagues, so he should be sharp when the season begins. My concern was that heíd be rusty with a year off, but he will benefit from playing down there. Add him to the mix and youíve got a reasonable top 4, but are still really dying for a #2.

    Cole, #2, German, Garcia, Montgomery

    It's kind of strange we've never gotten the full details on exactly what German did.

    He slapped his girlfriend in front of a reporter or PR person. Really stupid. Not forgiving, but if heís paid his price and heís good enough, he should pitch.

    He was abysmal last year. No doubt. He was terrible in 18 before being really good in 19. It looks like theyíre going to tender him and theyíll be stuck with him. He just cannot be the lionís share catcher anymore

    Per John Morosi, Lemahieu likely to resign with Yanks

    Outside of a rumor that the Yanks were expected to re-sign Lemahieu, there has been absolutely no Yankee chatter. This is a weird, weird offseason
    The rebuild is complete.
