Well, you got your man.

Still need a lot of work..that division has three very good teams..but these two moves greatly improve the offense..fills one outfield spot with a quality power threat and superb defense at third.

I still think they need some youth.. baseball is a long season.. older players have obvious risks..be nice to have gotten ozuna when they failed to get Stanton. He and Bruce along with longo would certainly put them in contention for the second wildcard..but the nl will be tough..lots of good teams

The Yankees should try and see what they can get for betances..he is about to get expensive and they have a betances clone in the kid they got from the Indians in the Andrew Miller trade.. Ben Heller...same exact repertoire as betances and three years younger. Flame thrower with devastating slider..and just like dellin, loses the plate at times..his numbers are almost identical to betances in the minors..14k per nine. If he can figure out his control issues, he is betances when betances is at his best

Yankees offered yu darvish a seven year 160 mil deal and took it off the table when he didn't bite after just 48 hours.

Fucking cashman is sooo gangster..or stupid, or this was fake news

yeah, it seems like not too long ago every team had big, Burley, hairy, left hand hitting, home run smashing monster at first...not the case anymore. Theres only less than half of those types manning first base these days.

Games changed, players changed with it

They have Brandon belt in the top ten. Woeful indeed

That was most telling. I expected to see him around 20. How can you not learn to poke a ball to the right side of the field, especially at a real ballpark like ATT. Hes have a lot better numbers at little Yankee stadium it thats not where he is.

Yeah, but he is an average player regardless.

New yankee stadium is awful..I won't even go during the regular season..just for the playoffs.

And yankee stadium isn't the only band box in baseball. Every stadium in the Al east is a band box except for Tropicana..which is the worst park in baseball..there should be no domes in baseball.. always should be played outdoors...the green monster is 270 feet from home plate.

I don't know why these straight pull hitters with power don't develop a left field swing. That would eliminate the severe shift on them and raise their average by 30 points in Belt's case.

it's crazy that a professional ball player cannot go the other way. I don't get it either...teams are basically giving them a base hit when the shift..but they just can't go oppo. Even a bunt that direction will be a single. Crazy

It's all ego- like the Rick Barry underhand shot.

Big NL parks still play that way. Pitching Defense get on base. Series ususlly plays that way too.

Yankees are stacked..from low a to the big league team....they can afford injuries at literally every position, besides catcher, and have a replacement that will be nearly equivalent to the starter

He's healthy so far. Plus they have a deeper lineup so he sees decent pitches. And he moved his hands! (that's what they say about everyone who is hitting :)
