Yeah...he has, and can, play 1B. That's not gonna change his K rate.

Yes, and wines have good and bad years, so . . . why not another chance? His fielding is special, but so, so far, are his K's. But didn't we put up with Curtis Anderson for a while?

Gallo's been a K machine his entire career, and I didn't see anything "special" re his fielding.

Thunderbird does have a "special" bouquet.

Really? A few writers at Pinstripes would disagree, as do I. But whatever.

Disagree re what...his fielding?


Yeah...he's won a couple of  GGs but he looked clumsy in YS LF at times...misplayed a few balls. I suppose that could be attributed to a new ballpark, but I didn't see anything special.

Bob, yes, I meant his fielding. I did happen to see him make at least two exceptional plays (one a strong-armed throw to home to nail a runner). I understand your skepticism about him, though, given his stupid K swings. I'm just hoping for something better from him if we ever have a 2022 season.

Of course everyone is hoping for better. But the Yanks don't need another swing-n-miss guy in the lineup, and the fact that he's a LH hitter really doesn't do much to break up the lineup from a pitcher's perspective. He's equally bad against RH pitching, and the irony is that he doesn't really benefit from the short RF porch. His HRs are long moonshots. But, like you, I'll hope for the best.
