I have lost confidence in him. It seems this year , he is bad more than good.
I wonder if he is traded in the off season. On the  other hand , his value right now is bad.

He reminds me of Chuck Knochblach...He's got a bad case of the Yips! I'm afraid he's going to hurt someone! Surprised

Betances might just be pitching his way out of NY... Kahnley (sp) might be his replacement ??  One thing for sure, his value has dropped a lot...

His numbers aren't bad but anyone watching knows he is skating a thin line.  I wouldn't trade him now because he has so much talent and his value couldn't be lower.  It's better to fix him.  This can happen to anyone out of the pen, look at Andrew Miller.  That guy was a terrible starter with a great arm that figured it out in the pen, that is essentially what Betances is at his best.  we just have to try to make him more consistent.

what you said LL. I wanted to trade him 2 years ago when his value was as high as Miller and Chapman was last year.

Exactly, there will come a right time to trade Betances and it will most likely be when he is on top of his game and about to leave his arbitration years and make big money.  The right time to trade Dellin will be when the move isn't popular with fans.  I think we have to try to move Robertson at the deadline in 2018 and hopefully he will be dominating at the time.  Letting him leave was the right move and bringing him back was definitely the right move.  If we want value back on trades we have to give something to get something and that doesn't mean a project, those come cheap as you can see with Didi or Starlin.

 If they move him now, the most they can expect is a couple of prospects. His value has dropped immensely. You have always been spot on about the right time to move a player, New.

I tend to believe Betances is still bothered by that statement by Levine in ST ..over that Arbitration issue.... he had zero control & /or location issues ...he seems lost ...and not concentrating on what he is doing ...just my take on it.
