Silly me, here I thought Yankees got him from a trade with Cubs. By the way, Red Sox had equal opportunity to trade for him.


After they see him raking in pinstripes,  it's sour grapes.




It was reported before the Yankees got Rizzo that Boston was very interested in getting Rizzo. But they either procrastinated, or did not offer the Cubs enough. So the Yanks came in with a better offer, and they landed him. The Red Sox settled for the inferior defensively Schwarber, who is injured.


Hence, how some sportscasters/analysts say the Yankees "stole" him. They basically swooped in and put a superior offer on the table. 


I watch the ESPN baseball games, but much prefer the MLB Network for games and baseball coverage.

ESPN hates the Yankees, not surprised.

I have to say the Marlins overall, are the worst team I have seen in years in all of major league baseball. Colorado, Arizona, Pittsburg, Baltimore and Texas and the Twinkies all should take solace in the fact they are not the Marlins. Thank you Mr. Rizzo for a Fantastic opening act! 


Now to the Bronx with a couple of new toys for Boone to play with. Tony Rizzo needs a contract now Cashman before he changes his mind as he has said he would like to stay with the Yankees. Get out your finest pen and ink the deal!


Gallo will start to help now and his past proves he can do just that. I will say whatever that pre hitting jitterbug he does in the box before he gets set, and the helmet adjustment and final sway back and forth that he does is the most entertaining routine by any hitter anywhere. The man has a whole new dance routine depending on what he chooses for his walk up song and I can't wait to hear what it is..


I think the guys are jacked up more than they have been all season and this home stand could be what they need at the right time including with all the new pieces, let's rock! We got a shot at the wild card so Oakland beware!




Just curious.  Rizzo will be 32 next week.  How many years would you go to sign him? 




Probably 4 with an option year for 5. That would most likely be a struggle because he would want more I would guess. What did they give DJ I forgot. Was it 7? Always easy for us to spend Hal's money though, right?




The Yankees gave DJLM too many years (6), because they wanted to keep the AAV of the contract down, to stay under the CBT cap.


Rizzo has been terrific, but it is 3 games. He turns 32 in a few days, so 4 or 5 years takes him into his turning age 36 or 37 seasons. If the money is reasonable, Yanks may do it, but I'd think 3 years, with a team option on a 4th, is more likely if they want him.




I agree with you but depending on how he does from here to the end of the season and then if we do make the 2nd wild card see what he does in the playoff atmosphere of Yankee stadium and that will determine most likely what his agent will be after for him. They may be tentative though because DJ  his contract now has slowed considerably so that will be on their mind. Will it happen to Rizzo? It shouldn't be though, because DJ started so slow his whole season has been him pressing trying to get to where he was last season I think. DJ will. Our biggest concern from what I see is what happened to Torres? Man that guy has really surprised me especially his power numbers. Over all I think this Baltimore series has come at the right time with us fresh off a sweep of the Fish and the Birds are not much better. We win in Baltimore and we have had a good run at Oakland when it's over and should tighten the gap between us. We are 2.5 behind them I think. 

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

Yanks trail A's by 2.5 games, but only 1 in the important loss column. A's at SD for 2 games, so a great chance to pick up ground. This series with the O's is in NY; the Yankees have not been as solid at home as they should be, so they need to pick it up.


I know Torres is a big concern for you, but he is only one of many Yankees not hitting this season. There are only 4 players batting over .260, the highest being Judge at .282. That is quite subpar. I'm more concerned if DJLM is beginning a decline with 5 years to go, as he is now 33. I figured a .300+ BA and good contact hitting with RISP for at least 3-4 years of that contract. There really isn't a way to know if any particular player is pressing, and I don't think he is. He just isn't hitting like the last 2 years, nor at his career numbers. 


Rizzo's Yankees future will be determined at the end of the season. He is a tremendous glove, which is a huge help at 1b, and a solid contact hitter that the Yankees need. But as I wrote earlier, at age 32, it will probably be the years, to a lesser degree the money, that decides whether he stays or goes.
