    And that is why tauchman needs to stay on the bench with wade , higgy and Gardner

    Do they need two backup OFers? Maybe keep Bruce around?

    With the injury history that hicks , Stanton and judge have , it may not be such a bad idea to have 2 back up outfielders on the bench

    No, they don't. Wade can play the OF in a pinch(if he makes the 26 man roster) and with the taxi squads when they're playing away, plus the ability to get someone from the alternate site quickly if they're home, doesn't make sense.

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

    Yankees prospect Yoendrys Gomez hits 97 on radar gan

    https://nypost.com/2021/03/04/yankee...-on-radar-gan/

    Unless the radar GAN is a new tool used in baseball, the Post has some bad proof readers and spell checking.
    I thought it was pretty funny.

    I would actually argue they already have two backups. Gardner and Stanton (until he's injured of course). And as Slick said, Wade can play D as well.

    I don't know, Day. A 31 year old who has 340 career PAs and at least from the looks of. his numbers, doesn't look like a threat at the plate. He's posted good numbers for the ABs but my guess is they will want a bat off the bench. I doubt it will be Andujar because they will want him to play as much as possible and Talkman is not a bat.
    I see the appeal of another guy who can play pretty much anywhere on the field but I would think they will look at Ford as well. If you go with Dietrich, there is zero offense on the bench.

    If I am the FO, I am sticking Andujar in the minors and having him play 1rst, 3rd and the corner OFs and practice his tail off at all 4.

    Odds are we both can't be wrong, so we'll just go with I'm right and you're wrong. Seems fair to me.

    As good as I feel Abreu can be, I've yet to be impressed. He needs a lot of work.

    Abreu is a good example as to why one shouldnít totally buy into a prospectís hype , it was just a couple a years ago that he was labeled as one of their best pitching prospects

    I agree but that depends on what you mean by prospect hype. You can get excited about a prospect and dream about their possible future while understanding there is a decent probability that they will flame out.

    I could name many prospects that are great examples of why you "do" buy into a prospect's hype.
    Dellin Betances, Luis Severino, Nick Green, Aaron Judge, Miguel Andujar all come to mind.

    I can say I'm excited about Jasson Dominguez and buy into his hype without saying that I guarantee that he will eventually become a superstar, or that I even think he will. I can be excited about him and the hope that he someday becomes a superstar, but still acknowledge there is a lot that can happen which would prevent him from ever reaching that point.

    I would never write the name of a prospect in permanent ink to be a starter for the Yankees, but I might pencil him in and fantasize about what the lineup would look like if he reaches his potential.

    There's no harm in it as long as you don't have unrealistic expectations and get your hopes up only for them to be dashed.

    Andujar , sevy and to a lesser extent even judge are not great examples of buying into the hype . Andujar doesnít even have a place on this team right now because of his poor glove , sevy has only lived up to it for a year and a half so the jury is still out on him , and judge hasnít stayed healthy enough to totally have lived up to his expectations yet .

    Gerrit Cole was once a prospect. Stephen Stasburg was once a prospect. Francisco Lindor was once a prospect. All of them had hype worth buying into.
