a boatload of hitting talent going back the other way. Otto we probably sold high on but gutting our entire 2B pool is a really odd move.

Love Gallo but really don't love the deal.

Torres is 24?

Well they are clearly doubling down on him being part of the solution. I was really excited to see Smith and Hauser. Duran was getting rave reviews.

Views from 314ft said Duran was still not hitting the curve ball, IIRC.

and those guys didn’t start the season as top 10 prospects. For a top 20-25 hitter in baseball with the sport’s highest walk percentage, that’s not bad.

Gardy to the bench can’t hurt either.

He was supposed to be on the bench. So back to the beginning?
we are going to strike out a tonne  
RasputinPrime : 7/28/2021 9:21 pm : link
and in the playoffs, which we don't have an even chance of making at this point, that will get this team put down.

A fair mid season re-rate:

Duran was slated to rank 6th, Smith 8th, Otto 20th, Hauver 22nd.

Yanks are down two OF starters from Opening Day  
shyster : 7/28/2021 9:26 pm : link
Hicks and Frazier.

Gallo replacing one of those spots still leaves one for Gardner.

If Cashman benches Gardner for Greg Allen against right hand pitching, particularly in October, I will eat my hat.
Obviously we improved, by a lot, if this means Gardner now stays  
Jim in Hoboken : 7/28/2021 9:32 pm : link
glued to the bench.

Pereira is the one I hated losing the most, Duran is no big loss since we have so many SS/2B prospects. At least none of the top tier got dealt.

As for this year, I guess let's make the playoffs first, but Gallo isn't solving a lot of our hitting woes. He strikes out even more than Stanton, by a mile!! I really don't get why this team just doesn't seem to care about K's.

As for next year, are they signing him after next? Will they have to pick one between him and Judge? Are they playing him at 1B? Taking a GG RF to make a 1B would be this team's MO.

Hopefully Voit gets hot again

and they can trade him in the offseason.

...HR or K... And it won't be pretty in a short series against good pitching. Yay.

At least we get the HR on occasion! With Stanton we just get the 3 K's.

1 HR and 3 Ks per game
But Tyler Wade is still here…

we need to trade Wade to Japan.

coming right up.
The Yankees will send at least four prospects to the Rangers,  
GeofromNJ : 7/28/2021 10:05 pm : link
according to a report from ESPN's Jeff Passan: shortstop Josh Smith (No. 14-ranked Yanks prospect per MLB Pipeline); second baseman Ezequiel Duran (No. 15); second baseman/outfielder Trevor Hauver (No. 23); and right-hander Glenn Otto (No. 28). A source told Morosi that Hauver and Duran are in the deal. Passan reports that "others [are] involved, too."

Damn I thought that was a DP when Judge hit it...

So Cash pulls a BS my pitcher is hurt to circumvent the 3 batter rule??
So who pitches the 9th  
rnargi : 7/28/2021 10:18 pm : link
Smith is 23 and Duran 22 in high A. They already have Solak, so they  
Jim in Hoboken : 7/28/2021 10:19 pm : link
are trying to find the next Kinsler or Young.

I would be happy if we only traded those 4.
rnargi : 7/28/2021 10:19 pm : link
3-1 now!

If the Yanks hadn’t shit their pants in Boston  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/28/2021 10:21 pm : link
they’d be on a nice little run now against good teams.

Another DP.
This team could hit into a double play  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 7/28/2021 10:23 pm : link
with the bases empty.
Lets lock this series up now, please.

haha - you post that and Torres promptly lines to 3rd and doubles up Judge....geez

Why he was not going to right field with those outside FBs I will never understand.

I'm not a Kay fan, but they have to fucking stop with the announcers for away team announcing from their home park. It doesn't work. They screw so many things up. I have MLB extra innings and at this point when I'm watching non-Yankee games I make sure I watch on the home team channel because the away team production is a total shit show because they are watching the game on a monitor from sometimes 3k miles away

to talk with two outs, they give up a hit. Hope it changes here.
