Prob def out on Machado now. I'm cool with this signing
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'd approve lol
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
This is crazy.
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.
it's like the mets getting lowrie but a better version of that...damnit
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
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.
fWAR, rWAR, and WARP | Sabermetrics Library
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?
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.
AL Central has to be the worst division in MLB right?
