    Didi highly unlikely to be back.
    Gardy probably going to be back but he's not coming as cheap as they hoped
    They will find another LHed bat, no word on who.

    Apparently they did call on Lindor and Cleveland wanted Torres and Dominguez back. He said it was a very short call
    I spoke to my primary sauce, Philly Marinara this week as well. We had lunch at Mr. Cacciatore's down on Sullivan st. He pretty much agrees.

    I hope we can take Cash seriously when he talks upgrade. He must realize these guys don't grow on trees and come with hefty price tags. No such thing as a bargain basement TORP. Wheeler ain't the answer imo. More of the same. They need a stopper who can provide innings!!

    I knew the price for Lindor would start with Torres, but Dominguez as well! Chernoff shooting for the moon. Absurd, but can't blame him really. Lindor is a very valuable asset that can and should bring premium talent. They need to capitalize. Just not from the Yanks at that price.

    Doc couldn't agree with u more. Getting more of the same type pitcher isn't going to make us better especially when we already have quite a bit of pitching depth. CASH needs to convince Hal to wait it out and pay whatever it takes

    Hitting a baseball isn’t easy, but imagine knowing when to sit dead red or sit back and wait on it. It’s disgusting how frustrating this cheating scandal has become.

    So it appears Yankees had reason to be pissed with that whistling.

    exactly im disgusted and thought they were just a team that was better than us. Im no longer mad at our team because they have been potentially cheated 3 years in a row. Altuve should be stripped of that MVP he never deserved i have lost respect for that whole squad. If your that good why cheat ? I expect to wipe the floor with them next year. Hopefully they will get hard capped stripped of picks and international bonus money so they cant upgrade their roster.

    cant believe ppl still ask for torres who could arguably be better than lindor next season. Jasson suppose to be the 2nd coming of Jesus so easy no

    Here is a photo of a video monitor just at the bottom of the dug out stairs. Notice two towels blocking it from the view you'd see at field level.

    Hm.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Steve Sax and Jim Memelo in MLB radio:

    There is a next to zero chance that Cole goes to the Yankees. He doesn’t want to play in NY and they don’t want to pay him.

    They said the same thing about CC. If Hal decides to pay him its impossible to count them Cole and Borass have 2 main objectives get Cole the biggest contract with the highest AAV of any pitcher
    Like CC said from talking to Cole multiple times recently if u pay him enough he ll sign here.
    If Hal isn't willing to pay the best pitcher in baseball with 4-5 prime yrs left when that's clearly our biggest need hes a moron
    To bad we couldn't get rid of both Hal and Cashman if they don't get us the ace we need. Let Hank give it a shot, maybe he could get us to a WS sometime in the next decade which his brother failed to do

    I hate the snail pace of MLB off season.

    Here's a Twitter thread comparing 2016 (pre cameras) and 2017 Astros hitting stats. Enjoy.

    At least during then steroid era both teams had a chance. This Houston team is a goddamn fraud!

    Well folks, before we start shooting off the mouth about the Astros and cheating they
    actually have a better road record from 2017-2019 than at home.

    Houston splits 2017-2019

    HOME 154-89

    ROAD 157-86

    They are a fraud but a good fraud that probably won the 2017 WS because of their ability to win all 4 HOME games vs the Yankees in the 2027 playoffs which propelled them to the WS.

    We got screwed and hopefully MLB hits them hard and possibly replays the 2017 WS later this month as punishment with Yanks vs Dodgers.
