No thanks.  One would hope the days of a roster spot being filled by a low average, high strike out, power hitter who is hard pressed to fake it in the field are over.

No thanks. You get him and you have clogged the DH hole with a slow, high K power hitter who can't field, and hit's for low average.

Yankees have enough power/strikeout guys, that's all Schwarber is, and no way the Cubs are going to sell low on him. pass.  We could use a one or two guys who have the ability to put the ball in play, right now we pretty much have Gardner and Didi, Judge/Sanchez/Bird are all very good hitters, but they will also all K quite a bit.

how does it clog the DH slot? Holliday is a free agent he aint coming back. Right now we dont have a true DH Type. 




First of all, what the heck is a "true DH Type?"  A DH is just a person who bats and doesn't play the field.  That pretty much qualifies every position player on a team.   With injuries being more and more common these days, DH is practically a half day off for a player.

you gotta figure Sanchez could DH Some part Time if we could get a guy that could be a Good DH/CATCHER but thats only part time. Judge is really good deffensively i dont want to lose his deffense to let him just DH. so The Yankees will be in the market for a DH May be J.D. Martinez? 




The DH isn't even an issue. It's even perhaps the easiest position to fill. The Yankees could even, need be, acquire one in August. 


First Chris Stewart (LOL), who batted .183 with an OBP of .241 as a replacement for Romine. WTH??


Now Kyle Shwarber who you batted .211 with a .315 OBP? Yeah, I know Schwarber is young and has potential, so what? We. Don't. Need. Him. 


Are you just pulling names out of a hat?


Seriously, I think your mind is somewhere in A GALAXY FAR AWAY!

I have to admit,I'm surprised that everyone here is blowing this kid off after a bad season. Most everyone here wanted him last year and I remember how much everyone wanted him in the Chapman deal. Again depending on the cost, I think he would look good as a DH in the middle of that lineup.

Put it this way: If he wasn't left handed, nobody would even be considering it IMO.


If the Cubs were willing to trade him for what his apparent value is currently, then perhaps. But everytime he's mentioned, it seems they want a king's ransom for him. No thanks.


He looks closer to a Carlos Pena than a Big Papi in my eyes. And he already looks heavy at a young age.
