Mentioning Hicks, if healthy, which he seems to have a hard time doing, is still a better option than Gallo... Gallo strikes out way too much... I know he's a gold glove OF'r, and he walks a lot... But Hicks can be better than Gallo when he's healthy...




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Gallo's an "interesting" player...athletic, good defense, speed in the field and on the basepaths and baseball smarts. Power hitter, a decent OBP prior to joining Yanks due to his willingness to take walks but...a ridiculous K rate. 


Unless Yanks can move him, he's on the team next year, and so is Hicks. As it is right now, I'd rather see Stanton in LF, Judge in RF and a LH hitting leadoff hitter type in CF. Hicks as 4th OF.




i see a similar scenario. but instead of hicks as the 4th, would like to see what greg allen can do. maybe there's nothing there but he did light a fire under the team when he was here. as for gallo, tough to live w a player who Ks 40% of the time, no matter what the upsides.


florial had a couple good games up here but continues to struggle at scranton.


regarding frazier, he was a regular OFer last year and performed well. was "given" the job out of ST this year and flat out didn't perform. yeah he always heard footsteps but you still have to perform. perhaps the whole concussion/vision thing was bothering him then. he did make a number of dives.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I like what I've seen from Allen...I just don't see how Yanks can move Hicks. 




    The longer I watch baseball the less I like long term deals...for anyone. 




~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I know you're very focused on finances. As I've said many times, I couldn't care less how much a player is paid or whether Yanks need to pay LT money. But long term contracts, especially for older players, become a problem when blocking others.

It would be nice, but will never happen if the players union and owners agreed to a maximum length contract say five years. I know that's fantasy but these lengthy contracts have proved to almost never work out.

Bumper, I follow Diehards farm thread a little and thought Florial was performing better than he actually is. Your post caused me to do a little more research and he does have a low BA of only 212. Power numbers are decent with 12 hrs. He also has a bunch of stolen bases but has also been thrown out alot. A mixed bag, but probably not the type of production you would expect of a guy making the jump to the majors. Maybe his ceiling is as a 4th OFer?

    Trust me when I tell you that I don't worry about the Steinbrenners' piggy banks.  My focus on finances is limited to its impact on the capacity to put together a winning team. If Hal were open to spending twice, that is fine with me.


    Elsewhere a poster compared Cashman to Rays GM Erick Neander. A major difference between the organizations is how players are managed. In Tampa, Judge, Gallo and Sanchez would be packing their luggage at the end of the season waiting for trades to occur. That is tough to do in the New York market. But the danger is ending up with a roster of highly paid vets with diminishing skills.
