A thread titled "Joe Torre" for example could be about anything - please specify exactly what you want to discuss in the thread you're starting such as "Will Joe Torre Ever Come Back to the Yankees?". Not everyone has a lot of time on the forum to go in and out of every single thread so...
On one hand, I can see the possibility of him being more consistent as he gets further and further away from TJS. I've always liked the movement on his pitches and his confidence level. He's entering his peak years, and could be a solid #4 or #5. Nova gives the rotation depth, which is a necessity.
On the other hand, Tanaka/Pineda/Severino/Eovaldi/Sabathia/Warren is a pretty solid rotation and there are others in the organization that can provide depth beginning in 2017 (James Kaprielian,...
How can they improve the offense for 2016 when they're basically set at every position? This is going to be a very difficult offseason in terms of making moves, considering the payroll and considering how many roster spots are already locked up going into the season.
Correct me with stats if I'm misremembering; jimmies are quite rustled at the moment. But it seems to me since 2002 (with the exception of winning in 2009 and in 2002 when the starting pitching shat the bed) every single playoff defeat can be attributed to a putrid performance by the offense. The batters on the team have changed a million times over but the results have stayed the same (sans 2009). Every year the team has a different feel to it, with different faces. But once the playoffs come...
His favorite teams are the Cowboys, Yankees, Lakers, and Duke LMAO.
Will the Yankees shell out the $400 million or whatever to get him in the Bronx?
Since the off-season is over I thought it time to move over to the 2015 season thread.
We now know it will be Astros at Yankees, Dallas Keuchel going up against Masahiro Tanaka, on Tuesday night.
What we don't know is who's going to be on the roster and who is going to show up and perform.
The trade deadline is past and the pennant race is in full swing. At the start of August, the Yankees hold a 6-game lead in the AL East (6 games up in the loss column over Baltimore, 7 over Toronto).
Time to start obsessing about the scoreboard as we head toward the stretch run!
This will give them a 92-70 record overall.
40 games at home. Can they go 25-15? They were 25-16 in the first half
34 games on the road. Can they go 19-15? They were 23-24 in the first half
I think these numbers are very do-able.
1-0 with 73 games left
A-Rod, Chris Young, Betances and Miller pick up right where they left off. Honorable mention goes to Tanaka & McCann with a clutch RBI.
TH: Yankees pitchers (CC/Warren/Betances)
HM: Beltran, Refsnyder, Bird, Ryan
Postseason Wildcard spot and the franchises 10,000th win!!!!!!!!!!
