Thoughts on Austin Romine and free agency

Any thoughts to Romine remaining in pinstripes????



Romine has been in the Yankee organization his entire career and has been behind Sanchez for the starting spot, and it’s no question that Romine has some serious talent. It’s believed that if Romine chose to walk during free agency, he could land himself a starting role on pretty much any MLB team. Romine is young enough where he could land himself a nice contract. 


Yankees like Romine as their backup catcher. If he wants to stay they’ll most likely give him a good contract.


Teams that could be seeking a new catcher and potentially show an interest in Romine are the Astros and the Braves. Astros’ catcher Maldonado is entering free agency and the Braves have made it no secret that they are in the need of a starting catcher.

I hope we find a way to keep Romine.

Not if he wants a starting  position.

 This may be far fetched and sound crazy, but is it? Think about asking the Braves if they are interested in Sanchez trade or sell him to them, and Sign Romine and put Higgy as his back up. Can't help but think Sanchez another Greg Bird. The Yankees keep hanging on to him afraid, he will be a super star if they cut him loose for another team..


Same as Bird, when you can't stay on the field as a youngster, and you get older each season you think the  chance for injuries go away? Just an idea but to me I get a little tired of seeing Sanchez get hot and hit 10 homeruns in a month, get all jacked up about him, and he gets hurt again, takes another month to start to hit, and never does. Just goes IL,  comes back and then hits a few 400 plus foot homers and then goes on the IL again. Seems like it is more than just a small sample size at this point.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Yankees are not giving up on Sanchez at this point.

Which is why they need to overpay to keep Romine given that Sanchez will spend at east one stint on the IL in the coming year.

I hear ya Mo, and that's unfortunate IMO. I think it is like throwing a coin into a wishing well. I will say Sanchez may only have this season as a Yankee to prove himself. One more round like 2019 and he and Bird will be Kevin Maas and Jesus Montero. A first baseman and catcher the Yankees and fans had a short romance with, and the breakup was really disappointing but inevitable.

He does have less "mileage" on his legs and knees and Frankie Cervelli did go on to a nice career in Pittsburghafter leaving NY, but I doubt a contending team will see Romine as the catcher of the future.   2/$6-$7?   Do we really want to see Higashioka in 60-70 games (2019 - Romine 72 games, Higashioka 18)

The Yankees will sign up for just one IL stint. It most likely will be multiple stints. It's hard to imagine him going 2 straight months without pulling a groin or calf muscle.
