    Unless they have some big trade in the works with Andujar which I doubt, pretty certainly yeah

    Yanks should get Ottavino. I want to see that

    I like Gary Sanchez a good bit and think he’s a better defensive catcher than he usually gets credit for, but watching him try to catch Ottavino’s frisbee of a slider would be so fun

    Are the Yanks out on Harper, too? Its hard to believe they did all that work to cut salary to not make a big splash.

    if anything maybe the yankees are preparing to trade Andujar for some sort of package for a starting pitcher

    DJ is not better than Lowrie. Not even close.

    Kinda see a deal with Cleveland for Kluber or Bauer as a possibility. Put Andujar at 3B, move J Ram to 2B, Kipnis to the OF?

    17.6 bWAR IN 1109 career games for Lowrie
    17.6 bWAR in 955 career games for LeMahieu

    Certainly seems close to me

    20 to 11 in fWAR :shrug:

    Lol there needs to be one WAR reference stat. They can be the same between the two or wildly far apart, I don't get it

    Idk which I'm supposed to trust more either, I feel like I see bWAR referred to more but I'm not sure.

    Fangraphs certainly goes way more in depth on stats though

    I'll start a real life riot if that happens. That dude fucking sucks.

    When they vary drastically, I typically split the difference. No formula is completely accurate, so its probably somewhere between the two.

    Bill James takes a drastically different approach, though.

    Here's Fangraphs write up on the differences.

    Machado in the WS HAD to have affected how some in the FO felt about Machado, and there would be no way they'd take on Bauer, especially not for Andujar. Bauer would be an absolute disaster with NY media.

    No one should want Bauer, but not having to root for Machado is probably bitter sweet as a NYY fan.

    Good call, but would you put Andujar in a deal for Kluber?

    chorus.fm @jason_tate @encorepodcast Staff Member

    I would. (But I wouldn't be happy about it at the time.)

    The only (non pitchers) players I would be legit really surprised if they got moved are Judge, Stanton, and Gleyber.

    I highly doubt Cleveland trades Kluber to NYY even if it included Andujar.

    I expected the Yankees to come out guns a'blazin after seeing the Sox go through them to win a World Series. No Machado in pinstripes is a bummer.

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    AL Central has to be the worst division in MLB right?
