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.

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.




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!






a true DH is a guy that DH's ever day like say Big Papi. Wink but 30 HR's dude how do you argue with that. tons of people in this thread liked my Shwarber Idea so laugh all you want but its not a bad idea plus some in the media brought it up on MLB Network  real baseball writers.

let me ask you all a question, if Cashman could have gotten Shwarber and Glyber Torrez in 2016 for Chapman would you guys have been against it?

Well he did hit 30 homers and I did some reading on him yesterday. Some feeling seems to be he improved enough defensivly to be a servicable left fielder on a part time basis, is a great guy in the clubhouse and still has the ability to be a much better all around hitter. I think I said in both of my posts that a lot depends on what the Cubs want and that might make it prohibitive. All I'm sayig is if I were Cash I'd sure check in on him

The Cubs don’t catch him and he doesn’t have a position.  I want someone much more versatile

No thanks. I've never been a big fan of this kid. Get a good starter.

well, somewhere along the line,the Yankees are going to need to find a power lefthanded bat to balance out the lineup. Right now you have power from Bird and that's it. Frazier will be Gardners or Ellsbury's  eventual replacement in left. I wouldn't be opposed to moving Frazier in a package for another young lefty hitter

That's all well and good and I suggested just paying a versatile veteran like Avila or Montero but Schwarber has a .119/.275/.143 split in games against lefty starters last season.  He may be a straight platoon now since he is a liability in the field.  Didi Gregorius would likely be more of a lefty power bat than him in 2018.  Unless he figures something out soon Scwarber will be as fun to watch for the fans as Stephen Drew or Chris Carter.

LL as you know I'm far more patient with young players then a lot of fans.  Heck look how many quit on Judge after his disaterous 2016 season. I don't think Avila is going to want to sit behind Sanchez or be a straight DH but who knows
