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


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 wasn't a proponent of the Gallo trade when he was first being linked to the Bombers, primarily for the high K rate which has even increased since he arrived. I am surprised at how athletic he is. He does do a lot of things well and if could somehow reduce the K rate he'd be a very good player. Just don't know if you can teach old dogs new tricks. I do think some of the things he does well helps to offset the high K rate.

Yeah...I also wasn't a fan of the acquisition for the same reason, but I've been surprised by his athleticism. I'd seen him a bit during Spring Training, even got his autograph for my grandson.


Didn't pay much attention to his play...frankly just figured him to be the stereotypical unathletic Big Bopper...a Canseco/Kingman type. As you said, if he can cut down on the Ks he could be a nice piece of the puzzle. Possible he's focused on & tempted by the RF porch.

sorta agree but health is the big question about hicks plus he'll be 33 next season. gallo so far during his time w us is striking out at a staggering 43.3% rate. for his career 37%. that makes guys like stanton & sanchez look like contact hitters. yeah he gets his walks but that means over 60% of the time, he's not even putting the ball in play. hicks also gets walks and his career K rate is 21%.


next season, the OF could potentially have judge, stanton, gallo & hicks. just more directions and decisions for cashman & co.




I really don't see Hicks being in their plans for next year and imo, they're crazy if they do. He hasn't played up to his expectations is 33 and can't stay healthy. 




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


Is there a choice...can Yanks move him? Doubtful...




Maybe as part of a package. I'd rather they go with Florial and if necessary make Hicks the fourth outfielder if they can't move him.

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


If Hicks can't be moved I have no problem with him as 4th OF...he can play any position; spell Judge/Stanton/Gallo. Dunno about Florial...he's never lived up to the dreaded "potential" label.

I dont necessarily know if Florial is the answer, but they have to give him a legitimate chance and not jerk him around like they did Frazier.

Agree re Frazier. I'd been following him since Indians drafted him...saw him play Rookie League & AZFL ball, and was happy when Yanks acquired him in the Miller trade when some preferred Bradley Zimmer.


He might unfortunately be the perfect example of wrong place, wrong time. His HS "rival" Austin Meadows was drafted by the Pirates a few slots behind him, then traded to the Rays where he was able to make good when the opportunity was presented.

It's hard imagining either Fraizer or Andujar on this team next year. Certainly, depending on health, both could fall into the category of buy low and hope to catch lightning in a bottle category. Maybe one or both are kept around as insurance but even with a marginal return it might be time to move on.

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.
