With Gallo being added does Voit get traded if they can move him for a pitcher ?? I don't see him sticking around, the infield is pretty good with Odor, or do they move Odor and put Voit back at first and DJL go back to second base... Odor has kind of grown on me, and he's a left handed bat that hits with power, kind of fits this team pretty well ??

Could go either way. Odor has grown on me too and really contributed....a lot more than Stanton.

I was an Odor detractor at first and saw no reason for him here and his slow start didn't help. As of right now he looks like a pretty good addition and fits in well with the team and the players like him. Also the stadium is doing wonders for his power numbers little by little. I like his energy and he CAN run the bases pretty well and stole a run the other night running through that stop sign. lol. So yes, he is growing on me as well. As for Voit, between him or Odor at this point Odor seems more reliable from an injury stand point and Voit has struggled mightily this season so Odor being left handed in the box, I would say he has the edge of staying if one has to go. And no I can't, or won't change my screen name. Voit as a player would still be one of my favorites for what he has done in his short stint here if he is traded. Tongue OutWink

    Luke Voit shouldn't be signing any long term leases. The implications of the Gallo trade suggest his days as a Yankee are limited. Unless the Yankees use Urshela or Torres in a major deal this offseason I can't see a role for him on the 2022 team.

Most of Gallo's career has been as an outfielder. Mainly RF/LF, some CF. He has played some 1b and 3b.


He was likely brought here to be in LF, since he won his Gold Glove in the OF. Gallo coming here really should not impact Voit. If anything, acquiring a SS will affect him.

Voit shouldn't be affected by Gallo on the team.


He might be affected by Odor playing better.

to me, gallo makes voit expendable if only because it overloads us with HR, swing & miss guys - as if we didn't have enough already. would trade voit for either a contact hitting CF'er or some pitching. maybe even a SS and let the IF game of musical chairs begin. see no reason to have 5 HR or nothing guys in the lineup. gallo's advantage over voit is that he's LH.

Gallo replaces Frazier and to a lesser extent, Gardner


Odor is replacing Voit, in effect, and he's also a HR/K hitter, although at a lower BAVG and BB rate, and his doesn't K or HR quite as often.

Odor looks like he's a little clutch.

Voits a much better hitter than Gallo ... why would you trade 4 prospects and get rid of Voit for a lesser hitter????
