This was a great read on CBS Sportsline this morning.......a lot of scenarios, and many have been mentioned right here on this page.......I, personally, still would opt for signing Harper, for so many reasons, and though hard to believe, both Harper and Machado are younger, (by months) than Judge......either would fit, but will be elated, should they opt to sign Harper........Go Yanks

After reading that signing Mr. Harper makes even more sense.  I would be happy with either of the two big free agents left.

They really need a good lefty bat in this lineup. I just don't get the lack of interest in Harper.

Nor do I, it is beyond bewildering. This team dearly needs a LH power bat in the middle of that lineup.


From the article:


"To me, Harper is the better fit for the Yankees. I think he'll be a better player than Machado the next five years and it seems he fits the roster and lineup a little more neatly. A high on-base lefty bat is the one thing the Yankees are missing."


I concur that Harper will be a better player over the next 5 years than Machado, he provides the LH bat so needed, has a much better career OBP% among other stats, and has not had two knee surgeries already.

Last year the righty heavy Yankees with Gardner's quick decline were still the 4th most dangerous team in baseball against righty pitching.  That includes Yankee lefties putting up these splits against righties:

  • Tyler Wade .185.241/.315
  • Greg Bird .192/.273/.374
  • Brett Gardner .235/.327/.385
  • Neil Walker .234/.326/.387
  • Aaron Hicks .258/.383/.463
  • Didi Gregorius .264/.335/.519

Our righties can hit righties.

They are even more RH dominant this year. I thought Murphy or Brantley at least but now its way to RHed.

How is it too right handed when our righties hit righties better than lefties do.

"To me, Harper is the better fit for the Yankees. I think he'll be a better player than Machado the next five years and it seems he fits the roster and lineup a little more neatly. A high on-base lefty bat is the one thing the Yankees are missing."

I've felt this way all along, but Cashman's stupidly and prematurely throwing negatives on signing Harper just turned me off the possibility. If that's how it plays out, so be it: Cashman's Yankees had better make the WS 2019 or he ought to go along w/ his slew of hired scouts, advisors, and who knows who. Another team will believe in his executive-of-the-year awards etc. I'd still say, let him go. And why does he (or is it Hal?) persist in keeping Rothschild as the pitching coach? George did the same w/ the over-hyped Billy Connors, to no good end imo. Anyway, right now I think we're an A- team. We could win if the Red Sox get cold, cocky, or whatever. But we're still weakened if we don't get a LH power-hitter in the lineup and our SPs survive w/out bum arms, elbows, arms, hearts.

They need a balance to advance. They don't have it. Lets see what hapens but I don't think it the way to build a championship team.

Yankee splits ...

  • .800 OPS vs LH 
  • .773 OPS vs RH

I'm Guessing they face RH Starters about 70% of the time so you want that to be your stronger side 


Red Sox for example are much much bettr vs RH pitchers than LH

  • .719 OPS vs LH
  • .817 OPS vs RH
