    I'll start. Gerrit Cole needs to go if some team will take him. He is no Jacob deGrom.
    Dude, he gave up runs! He blows. He totally failed. He also walked guys and gave up hits!

    Torres is so fat and out of shape, he must have eaten a whole hot dog stand. He's so lazy.

    Anyone else starting to get nervous about the lack of official announcements regarding the signings of DJ and Kluber? Its been about a week now since "sources" said they had agreements in principle with the Yankees.

    Tjey have to clear 2 40man roster spots before they can officially announce those deal. Cash has 2 either find a trade or release 2 guys. I'm sure he's looking for a trade

    This is often the case along with physical checkups, which they can delay acquiring the results of for weeks.

    In Klubers case I imagine they are looking over the medicals with a fine tooth.

I'd say he's not a SS and move on... but it wasn't.. he didn't hit for **** last year either. Not like the guy we've come to know from the last several years. That tells me that the numbers from that 60 game shortened season should be treated as an outlier not the expected norm.

    I think the Yanks are noticing that too and with the volume of high level SS scheduled to be UFA's next year... along with their desire to get back under the limit this year... that you'll see them use 2021 as year to see if he really can do the job. I think he might have been injured. Not enough to keep him out, but enough that it slowed him down both offensively and defensively.. 2021 will show us for certain.
    Offensively, I think he was effected by the stress of playing SS and being out of shape. He'll be fine offensively as long as he doesn't try to emulate the Sanchez machismo and pull everything.

    Defensively, I have many concerns. He doesn't have the lateral quickness or arm strength and you just can't teach that. Perhaps he compensates by focusing on positioning and improves slightly, but I think that just takes focus away from his bat.

    He needs to be a 2B.

    While Yankees general manager Brian Cashman works to make a big splash, he’s looking at low-risk options, too.

    Enter: Asher Wojciechowski, the ex-Orioles right-hander the Yankees added on a minor-league deal Thursday, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale. The pact will pay him $750,000 if he reaches the majors, Nightengale said.


    The Yankees are the ninth organization for Wojciechowski, 32. The Blue Jays drafted him in the first round (41st overall) out of The Citadel in 2010. Last season, he went 1-3 with a 6.81 ERA in 10 games (seven starts) with the Orioles. Baltimore designated him for assignment in September.

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

    That may fly over some heads born in the 80's - 90's.
    Stan 'Wojo' Wojciehowicz and Phil Fish were characters from Barney Miller an American sitcom set in a New York City police station on East 6th St in Greenwich Village. The series was broadcast from January 1975 to May 1982.

    It was a test. I was wondering whether anyone would get the media reference. Kudos.
