    Maybe Benintendi comes back fairly cheap tho, I think MLBTR projected him for about 13M a year? 4 years 52M isnít bad.

    Varsho? So they like a guy with a high K rate who hits hrs?? Shocking! (At least he can run)
    Who are the others? Corbin and McCarthy?
    Corbin is a baby, so I can't see them parting ways with him. McCarthy is interesting but he's another high strike out guy.
    Yoshida doesn't play good defense or run well, which is why my report said he wasn't a fit. Apperently the Yanks feel differently?

    this is my scouting report on Yoshida
    Masataka Yoshida
    Position: Outfielder

    Bats: Left ē Throws: Right

    5-8, 176lb (173cm, 79kg)

    Born: July 15, 1993 (Age: 29-118d)
    Yoshida is an extreme contact hitter. He walks way more than he strikes out, walking 82 times to just 42ks. He won the NPb batting title this year with a line of .335/447/ .561/ 1.008. Decent power with 28 doubles and 21 hrs. This is the 2nd time winning that leagues batting title, Not much of a speed threat, not stealing a single base last yr
    He has a bit of a longer swing that may not allow him to catch up to the top FB's or enough hand speed to make the same rate of contact against better breaking balls.

    That said, he did hit well off the relief pitchers that threw in the mid 90's. Excellent barrel awareness and strong bat to ball skills. He is said to be a better hitter than the NBL star Seiya Suzaki who joined the Cubs last year. Scouts believe if he can catch up to those higher velo FBs, he'll hit well in the MLB

    Very sneaky power for a guy of his stature, reminds some of Altuve offensively

    Defense is the biggest red flag. He's a LF that will never be confused as a good defensive player. Reportedly gets avg jumps and reads, but doesn't have the speed to close gaps or catch balls that aren't easy to get to. Arm is considered avg at best from reports.



    Bottom line he's a fit for a team with an elite CFer next to him and with a smaller LF to limit how much ground he is going to cover. The team that gets him, is getting him for his bat and contact skills. No projection left with him turning 31 in July and could be starting to see the backside of his career..

    Not a good fit for the Yanks IMO. While the bat is very, very interesting the lack of speed and defense could make him a liability.
    .
    What i didn't have knowledge of at the time I wrote that is that other scouts believe he will hit against better pitching and the Yankees really like his contact ability. Absolutely not my favorite choice, especially because of the lack of speed and poor defense, not to mention that he's already 30.

    Alek Thomas and McCarthy are the other names beside Varsho they are interested in. Corbin isn't going anywhere, he's an absolute stud. Corbin is on par with Volpe talent wise

    If you could get Benny for that, I'd take it and run

And we donít need to even talk about Jeterís Oct bat.

    Iíd go with Judge and deGrom

    Cole
    de Grom- make him just a 5 inning starter
    Sevy
    Cortes
    Montas

    Resign Benny too


    Yanks all over deGrom

    Unk called it yet again!

    they got his medicals, he's asking for 5yrs215

    He's made 38 out of 96 starts the last 3yrs and is 35. I'm sorry but they aren't giving him the deal he's looking for. He's going to Texas or back to the Mets
    You already don't like Cole because he hasn't been worth the money, imagine if he crapped the bed down the stretch for us like he did the Mets. How about if we signed him for 5yrs and he only makes 10-15 starts a yr like he has the last 3yrs. Age doesn't improve injuries and 40m AAV for a pitcher from 35-40 would be a highly questionable move, IMO

    Yankees have more interest in Verlander than DeGrom

    He's not a starting caliber SS, but he's a GG 3rd baseman. He makes a lot of contact, hits well with RISP and has speed. IKF will be the easiest of him, Hicks and JD to move

    I canít stress this enough, Bellinger canít be our starting LF going into the season!!! Dodger fans were sick of him and he won them a WS and an MVP. We would be tired of him after a month.

    oh I agree, Gallo 2.0. Looks like he's headed to the Blue Jays, which could be really good for us, unless they fix him

    Same issue as Correa and Torres I assume. If you care about winning and getting to the finish line, does it really matter if the guys an A-hole? Just win.

    Ty Cobb was a horrid individual. A racist, an angry and bitter man. He was a cantankerous sob hated by even his own teammates. One story has him going into the stands and beating a handicapped fan for heckling! BUT he was the most competitive player in history. A person who put winning above all else.

    Not an endorsement of Bellinger.

    Honest question, do you think Torres has that quality?


    For the record, I think Cobb was a sociopath. The man he beat up was armless or handless, I believe. Cobb sharpened his spikes. He was a horrible person

    Degrom will be lucky to get 20 starts a year. Mush would be screaming till he lost voice about how stupid they were to sign him

    Cobb was a despicable individual. He probably was a sociopath, possibly a borderline personality.

    Is Torres as competitive as Cobb? How many players are or were?

    I think Torres wants to win, maybe not with the intensity of O'neill. But clearly he enjoys the game and winning is the object of the game. Did Bernie display the same intensity? Tino? They all want to win. The level of intensity varies but the love for the game and winning doesn't.

    The sack on this dude to call Cole the biggest cheater in baseball history ?? to bad pitchers don't hit anymore, I'd throw one in his ribs for that BS. I would hardly call using sticky stuff worse than guys who used PEDs, what a POS
