    He hasn't shown much so far starting, but I'm not ready to give up on him just yet. I say move him to the pen and let him air it out for an inning and see what he can do.

    Exactly. There are frequent posters here that act like the Yankee hierarchy similarly lacks it. It's ridiculous.

    It was the most recent one I could recall.

    i mean, two things can be true here.

    1. they sold low on wilson at the time, or did not really have to make that move
    2. the move turned out well

    it's just a fact that player performance and growth/decline play an outsized part in how trades actually turn out than the designs of the front office.

    Agreed.

    I can go either way. As a 6/7 starter he is good. Bullpen project he could be real good.

    He isn't the garbage many around make him out to be, he has value.

    Ty. I was high on Quintana but given the choice I would have preferred Gray. Glad we got him.
