Schrawber; baez, soler and underwood for Chapman miller and gardner?



This would be nice, but I doubt anything this good could happen.. I know I'd really hate to trade Miller away, I know we haven't had a good season by any means, but what the hell would it look like if we didn't have the back end of our BP ?? I'd love to move Chapman and Gardner and Beltran and anyone else besides Betances and Miller.. We can't just strip this team of everything, these kind of arms are hard to get, why do you think teams are wanting them ??




Miller's the one guy most of us would like to keep out of all the names being tossed around.

My pleasure.


Hey, after we were talking last week about Sling I started having picture issues like you. I also at the same time was having some electrical issues in half my house with the overhead lights not working. Anyway, after 2 days of issues and 500 bucks later for an electrician to fix a loose wire in my wifes closet lite, my Roku wouldnt tune an Sling channel in. It appears the stick was pretty much blown out. I bought a newer model and the pic is perfect now.

 Don't have any issues with the results. Would also like to see if they can dump Headley as well but it would have to be part of a big trade where we give up more so they would take Headley off our hands. I also think the focus on some of these trades needs to be starting pitching as well. They are not going to win with this group. Dare I say but CC right now is our best pitcher. If we trade 2/3 of the back end of the bullpen and with our middle relief being a joke we are going to need to improve the starters at some point.Here is my thoughts on the staff:


Tanaka- Too inconsistent to be a number 1 and has trouble pitching every 5 days. Not what you need from the top guy. More of a middle rotation guy.


Pineda- Has pitched better but not a number 2. Back end at best and obviously inconsistent.


Eovaldi- Again middle to back end rotation. His inability to be consistent is frustrating. Last 3 starts perfect example.


CC- Fine if he pitches like this. Number 4/5.


Nova- FA can't come too soon. Inconsistent. We have a big enough sample over the years to know this guy is nothing more than a back end of the rotation guy.


Severino-??? Needs to develop another pitch and harness ability. From what I have seen in spurts don't think he is a number 1 but can fill anywhere from 3-5 position.


Problem in nutshell we have all middle to back end starters. We are going to have to find a number 1 and 2 at some point. Don't think anyone internal in minors fills that bill currently and we know there is nothing in AAA. I like some of the names thrown out in trades like Schwarber, Gallo, Baez and Soler but they are all position players. Only team I think could help with starting pitching is Washington.

great thread BigGuy, Im really enoying it...not that our opinions matter; however it's interesting to read one anothers toughts and opinions...Gardner can go...weren't those in the know considering this earlier in the season?...make a fabulous deal with either Bettances or Chapman; but hands off regarding Miller...come up with a unique package involving Headley, Sanchez, and Refsnyder and/or Torreyes and wheel and deal it around the league, you never know who might bite...Carlos Beltran should asolutely, positively remain and retire a New York Yankee

"...let it be known that as of this date in Major League Baseball history the one, truly honest single season home run record...61 in '61..."

Glad you like it. 


Why would you trade Sanchez?

The Yankees aren’t very good, but that doesn’t mean 2016 has to be a lost season



(Presswire)
(Presswire)

Folks, the Yankees aren’t very good. They’re bad and they’re boring, and they’ve given us basically no reason to think they’re capable of going on the kind of run it’ll take to qualify for the postseason. The Yankees need to go 56-41 the rest of the way to match last season’s 87 wins. That’s a 94-win pace. I know the Yankees are bad because it is June 16th, and when I pull up the standings, I see this:


AL East standings


Last place. A deserved last place. The Yankees can’t beat teams in their own division (10-17), they can’t win on the road (13-20), and they’ve had only two winning streaks of at least three games all season. They can’t kept their head above .500 at all. The last two times they’ve reached .500, they immediately went on a losing streak and fell several games back under. It’s awful.


The Yankees are bad and chances are they’re not going to the postseason. FanGraphs puts their playoff odds at a mere 10.9% right now. Being bad and missing the postseason does not mean the season has to be lost though. The Yankees can still accomplish a lot this season, stuff that will put them in better position to contend as soon as next year. It sounds crazy, I know, but it’s doable. Here are a few ways to make the most of this yucky season.


Sell Sell Sell


This goes without saying. The Yankees have some valuable assets who clearly are not enough to get this team to October, and some of them figure to be gone after the season. Aroldis Chapman andCarlos Beltran are at the front of the line here. Andrew Miller and Brett Gardner have two years of control beyond this season and would help contenders. There are others to market as well.


At an absolute minimum, Chapman and Beltran have to be moved for younger players because of their impending free agency. The sooner the better too. Beltran’s knee is barking and you don’t want to be left holding the bag if it gives out in a few weeks. Chapman and Beltran have to go, but the Yankees should be open to moving everyone. Miller, Gardner, Dellin BetancesStarlin CastroBrian McCann, you name it.


Make A Decision About Eovaldi (And I Guess Pineda Too)


Depending on the day, you either want to give Nathan Eovaldi a six-year contract or trade him as soon as possible. He’s pitched extremely well at times this season, and yet here he is on June 16th with a very Eovaldi-ian 4.90 ERA (4.19 FIP). Eovaldi is the perfect microcosm of the Yankees. The talent is obvious and there are flashes that make you want to believe. The record and the stats are what they are though, and that’s underwhelming.


The Yankees do not have Eovaldi much longer. This isn’t Luis Severino with six years of team control remaining. Eovaldi will be a free agent after next season, and at this point the Yankees should at least have an idea of what they want to do with him long-term. Do they keep him or trade him? The sooner they make a decision, the better, because then they can begin to act on that decision.


The same applies to Michael Pineda as well, though it seems the chances of an extension with Pineda are much smaller. He was pretty damn terrible earlier this season, and the shoulder surgery is still in the back of everyone’s mind. Either way, the Yankees should take the time this season to figure out what they want to do with Eovaldi and Pineda. The longer the wait, the more it’ll cost them.


Refsnyder. (Presswire)
Refsnyder. (Presswire)

Figure Out What You Have In Refsnyder


In hindsight, this should have happened last year. It didn’t though and it’s not really happening right now either. Guys like Ike Davis and Chris Parmelee are stealing at-bats away from Rob Refsnyder, and you know what? I get it. He’s inexperienced at first base — we’ve seen it at times for sure — and there’s always going to be the temptation to go with the proven vet not playing out of the position.


The Yankees are at a crossroads with Refsnyder now. He’s going to be 26 next season and he’s logged over 1,000 plate appearances at Triple-A. It’s time to find out where he fits going forward, and the only way to do that is by playing him. With the postseason looking like a long shot, all the at-bats going to the Davis and Parmelee types are a waste of time. They have no value to the Yankees. Is Refsnyder part of the solution or not? It’s time to let him answer that question one way or the other.


Consider Eating Dead Money


It’s tough not to notice what’s going on around the league. Last week the Dodgers cut ties with Carl Crawford even though there was $35M left on his contract. Just yesterday the Rockies and Royals cut ties with Jose Reyes ($40M) and Omar Infante ($15M), respectively. The Dodgers and Royals are trying to win and the Rockies are rebuilding. They made similar moves despite being in different situations.


Why did those clubs eat all that money? Because it was best for the team, plain and simple. They had better players that deserved the playing time. The Yankees have a bunch of bad contracts that are doing various degrees of harm to the team. That doesn’t mean they should release them all. Doing something like, say, releasing McCann so Gary Sanchez can play is silly. Silly and totally unrealistic.


In fact, I’d say the only player the Yankees should seriously consider releasing for the good of the roster is Alex Rodriguez. He’s owed another $34M or so, but his bat has clearly slowed, he can’t play the field, and he can’t run. I love A-Rod, he’s the man, but gosh does he limit flexibility. It’s getting to the point where he does more harm than good on the field. There are better uses of that roster spot. We saw it earlier this year when he was on the DL.


* * *


I don’t want the Yankees to be bad. I’d love nothing more than to watch them go on a three-month tear and play meaningful baseball in September. If you don’t want to see that, then what’s the point? It doesn’t appear the Yankees are going to give us that chance though. So, instead, the focus should be on the ways the team can put itself in the best possible position to contend going forward. The sooner they shift focus, the better off they’ll be.

That's what my cable provider told me ... to buy a newer model of Roku and I wouldn't have any issues ... but I'm being cheap lately.  LOL

I went cheaper to start too. The original Roku stick I bought was refurbished. When I think of it I must have had a weak moment. I only saved a lousy 5 bucks and had to end up being the better model eventually anyway.
