    I would love to see U and Posada put together a Yanks team based on a 210m payroll for the 2021 season. I bet the team you guys would put together wouldn't even win 90 games in a SIM league

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

    i never said I didn't want Lindor.... I do believe that if it's a choice between DJ or Lindor... DJ costs $$$$ right now... and right now.. Lindor costs MAJOR specs and $$$$$.... DJ is the better choice...

    NOW: Next year.... when Lindor is a UFA... and only costs $$$$$... like a diamondback... strike...

    Though the real problem is... if Gleyber's issues were much Like Fraziers (a blip.. NOT the norm), then Lindor is clearly a bad decision...

    Worse.. We need at least 1 starter much more than we need Lindor.... Offense we have.. pitching... well, we have some (Cole), and some wildcards (Sevy, German....etc)... We may very well be fine.. but I'd be much happier with another horse in the rotation.. and not someone who I'd rather have Deivi in instead... much like the options at the trade deadline....

    First... LH vs RH is HIGHLY overrated.. worse in Yankee stadium.. LH hitters who come here have a nasty habit of becoming dead pull hitters (Tex, Jason Giambi...and many others) and we could be better without them... few ignore that urg (Cano)....DJ being and RH hitter who hits both RH and LH pitchers effectively you need to keep.... if you want Lindor that's fine... but I would want him to add on to DJ... because I've seen many teams with HIGH OBP and Low K hitters win championships as its hard to shut them down... the majority of out bats seem to be all (bombs) or nothing (outs... whether K's or lazy popups/groundouts)....

    Either way... pitching really needs to be the focus... we can live and win without Lindor... but not without at least another arm in the rotation.

    The funny part is.... you say that... but the guys that really matter are not (The NY Yankee front office).....

    The question is.. whose correct?

    I'll go with the guys who actually get paid for that over you (or Myself even)....

    Lindor is a switch hitter though and while I generally agree about the RH/LH thing, some balance is nice. Especially when you do have the short porch in right, it would be insane not to take advantage of it. While we have seen left handers become pull happy, it is on the coaches and players to stay disciplined. I wouldn't say, do not take advantage of your home ballpark because a guy might become pull happy.

    It has less to do with production and more to do with keeping the pitcher from getting into a groove by only pitching to righties.

    Do you want the rightful AL mvp and someone who hits .360+ or do you want someone young and left handed? Answer me that.

    Lol that doesn't paint the while picture. The near MVP is in his mid-30s while the young and switch hitting* SS is a star player.

    Very difficult decision. High production contact bat with a good glove, although aging or a stellar SS with an average bat and exceptional glove.

    Tough. I love Lindor and in a perfect world would like both. But the question in my mind, who is essential to lineup now. As I have said in the past, Lindor is a luxury not a necessity. DJ on the other hand is a key cog in the offense while playing exceptional D. Has DJ priced himself out of the Yankees comfort zone? Asking for too long a term? Lindor is younger, but likely more costly.

    What they really need to focus on is the rotation!
