    I completely agree i think they need atleast 2 RP this off season. Do you think adding a 3rd LHed is the best fit? Hand is great and would be a hell of an addition to the BP but i think they target a RHed arm atleast first

We need stoppers and multi middle inning relievers, not named Cessa, holder and Lasagna. Britton is generally a must have for most teams, but not at his price, in this market and with so many needs for next year.
    If they end up only picking up Brittons option and not much else, thats a very fair question. I completely agree that we need better multi inning options than Cessa and Holder, neither of those guys are worth what they are likely to cost next yr. This was Lasagnas first full yr in the BP and the stuff is still very good. I would like to see them give him 1 more yr while he's dirt cheap to see if he can get it figured out but in a much reduced role. They have given much worse guys longer to figure it out than him, IMO

    If they really pass on all the top relievers on the market at the prices they are going to be available i will be very surprised. Since they non tended Kahnle they have over 100M coming off the books from last yr so their is going to be some money to spend. I guess well have to see what happens

    If they don't have splits then I don't really care. Being lefty isn't the worst thing in YS. I'd look into O'Day as well.

    good point. I'm not a huge O'day fan, i'd like to see them get a power arm but thats just me.
    Velo and a high spin breaking ball seem to be the recipe for success in the pen, especially from RHed pitchers.

    While we absolutely need to add arms on the FA and trade markets for this yr, in this future they need to develop more of our own BP arms. Luckily we have a ton of arms coming that could make big impacts out of the BP. I think a guy like Abreau and Nelson have a chance to be big contributors to the pen next yr.

    We have so much money invested in our BP, hopefully we can develop another couple Betances like arms and save us a ton of money going forward.

    O'Day has hardly pitched the last few years so I'd hope he would be cheap. He is devastating on right handers though. He would hopefully be what Ottavino should've been.

    I'll give u he would be a big improvement over the Holder, Cessa types we have in the pen now. I'll give you he'd be an excellent 3rd or 4th option this winter. I think were going to need atleast 2 better arms, like Hand, Hendricks, Rosenthal and guys of that quality that are going to be available. I also think the failed starter market is going to be primed to take advantage of also

    I think Betances opting into his contract with the Mets for 6m VS taking a 3M buyout is very telling of how cheap relievers are going to be this winter. If Betances and his agency doesn't think he could do any better than 1yr 3M on the open market and no team was interested in Hand for 10m its pretty good indication of how cheap that market is going to be. Its going to be a shame if the Yanks don't take advantage of that market to strengthen what was clearly a weakness last yr

    Betances was awful in his limited innings last year but yeah. The market looks like it is going to be realllll cheap. The Yankees should take full advantage and go all in. But, it remains to be see what they do with payroll.

    They already have, they nabbed Britton at the bargain basement price of 27 million, before he could elect free agency and have another team could swoop him and shower him with money.

    As for Lasagna, i don't think his future is written in stone, but we've watched him nibble at corners and afraid to pitch to hitters for 3 years now, despite having some of the better stuff on our pitching staff. If he's a future closer, or even a setup guy, I honestly don't see it.

    That is what I expect from the front office too , although I do think they will trade for another reliever to replace khanle .

    As for laosigia , I think it is about time they move on from him . In 3 years as a starter he has shown he is a back end of the rotation pitcher . And as a reliever a guy that should be brought in when the game is atleast 3 runs in either direction .

    That's simply not true. Could end up being the case but it's far from a given.

    Changing the rules again, huh? According to people like you, if you don't win the WS you had a losing year.

    How am I changing the rules ? I stated that winning a pennant is more than what the yanks have done in the last 11 years . I never said it wasn’t a failed season to lose the ws . I agree it is . But getting to the World Series is going further in the playoffs than the yanks have to over the last 11 years and that is a fact .
