• The bloom is off the Cory Wade rose

    Yesterday, I wrote about how successful Rafael Soriano has been since he was installed as the closer for the New York Yankees.

    The only way that they could sign JD and still get under the cap in 2018? Let Tanaka walk and sign Otani. Pitching would be a bit compromised but we

    Re: 2017 Joe Girardi Performance Thread

    Not sure how deep the pen really was at that point. No Green, and Betances is not an option if you’re trying to win. Maybe go to Chapman vs. McCann?
