Discuss the Yankees in here (Formerly Inside the Lines II)
All, in their continuing effort to provide high quality Yankees content, SNY has decided to split the NYYFans.com site from the forum. Effective immediately, the NYYFans forum is using a new URL: www.nyyfansforum.com - you will need to log in with your user credentials. Please update your bookmarks now.
The old URL, forums.nyyfans.com will redirect to the new domain name for a temporary period of time while everyone makes the transition.
Please let me know if you have any questions or...
Please show some courtesy to your fellow fans and use descriptive thread titles in this sub-forum and in all other areas of this forum so everyone knows exactly what's being discussed in a particular thread.
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...
Almost time to kick things off.
With the 2016 season all but done for the Yankees, what do you think are the biggest issues that need to be addressed for 2017?
I'll start with these:
New manager who can work with kids and be patient with them
Get back to their roots and put an emphasis on OBP throughout the lineup
Look into trading Ellsbury, McCann and Castro to create additional payroll flexibility
HM: Ellsbury, Castro
TH: Mark Teixeira!!!!!!
I enjoy speculating how the organization can improve the team, minimize spending, get younger, and still keep the farm stocked. Here's some initial ideas for this winter’s plan:
Trade for Jose Quintana
From what I read the White Sox might decide to start a full rebuild this offseason. I think the Yankees’ need for an established lefty starter is worth giving up good but expendable prospects, and this package might pry him loose from Chicago: Jorge Mateo, Rob Refsnyder, Chad Green, Drew...
HM: Didi, Clippard
TH: 9th inning comeback
TH - Joe Girardi and his merry band of GirarVets.
Opportunity to be sellers come July? Or does Cashman try to fix the offense. What if the Angels did actually put Trout on the market? (Not likely but MLB Trade Rumors puts it out there, so...) http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/05/poll-should-the-angels-consider-trading-mike-trout.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook
HM: Tex, Pineda
I don't know - this one is a toughie, but I gotta go with Gary 'To the Moon' Sanchez
