    Oof. At least I know my eyes aren't leading me astray on this one.

    16-101? Thought it was worse than that. I wonder how many of those hits were non home run hits?

    I'm not saying Harper is a bad player. I just don't think he is worth the 350 or 400 million that has been rumored to be the price for him.
    not sure any player is under the new rules.

    It’s too much of a team game.

    Get used to disappointing Romine at bats. A couple of weeks ago some people here wanted him DHing lol over-under on when they'll want him off the team: 22.5 days.

    Speaking of base running not being a strength, the Nats tried to give us the game last night, and Sonny Gray just didnt want it. He is an awful YS pitcher.

    HE also got robbed of a hit again yesterday. Romine is playing much better than Gary, behind the plate and at the dish. Its not even really close.

    Some stats to back up my argument that Hicks has taken a huge step backward this year:
    UZR/150: 12.9 (17) vs 5.3 (18)
    RngR: 6.5 (17) vs 0.0 (18)
    DRS: 15 (17) vs -1!!! (18)
    UZR: 7.0 (17) vs 1.1 (18)
    *For the cumulative stats, he has a little more than half the innings

    So basically Hicks back to the way he has always hit other than the first two months of last season.

    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    This is where I'm at with Harper. I like the player but combined with Stanton's salary, they would be committing almost a third of their payroll to two players. That doesn't leave a lot of flexibility to fill out a 25 man roster, especially once our homegrown guys start becoming arbitration eligible.

    Which is why I continue to say Stanton was a bad trade no matter how good it looked on paper. The length on that contract is absolutely brutal.

    There is no way we can lock up another big time FA with crazy money and years.

    Yeah I actually meant to say "combined with Stanton's salary" which I think you understood. Just corrected my post.

    I rather have Stanton at 22M than Harper at 30M. People want to think that Harper is at Trout level but so far he's at Stanton level with a bigger injury risk.

    Agreed.

    Go grab a DH next year.

    At a mimimum ne needs to advance the runner in that situation. Pulling a ground ball to shorth was selfish and poor fundamental baseball. The objective should be to win games, not pad stats.

    Starting to think that Hicks needs to sit, Gardner plays CF, and Drury becomes our DH and plays corner OF to give Stanton DH days still.

    I think Drury is at Scranton until July 2nd. Yankees get an extra year of service time if Drury stays down there.

    Is that the date? I thought it was posted elsewhere on these boards that the date was July 12th?

    Could be wrong though.

    For whatever reason, Harper has not been able to put it all together yet. Some guys don't until the age of 26 or 27.

    Shelling out that kind of money means you hope you get 2015 production. You can give harp 30-40 million and trade Stanton to LA... But what happens if Severino keeps dominating year after year. What if he wants 30 plus.

    It really depends if staying under the tax is going to be a yearly thing for them or if they just want to reset every x amount of years.

    If staying under it is an every year thing, giving one guy 30 million or more makes that really tough.

    Re: 2018 Regular Season Thread

    The notion that the Stanton contact is brutal is a dumb one. He has a buyout for his age 38 season; this is a guy who keeps himself in premium shape on top of not having a contract ending in his early 40's. It's the same AAV the Sox gave to JD, ffs.

    4 win season at age 19
    137 wRC+ at age 20, derailed by a knee injury.
    197 wRC+/9 win season at age 22
    Also wins the MVP last year if it weren't for a fluke injury

    He's a Hall of Fame level talent and probably ends up there barring some catastrophic injury. He should be their #1 target based entirely on the fact that he's a premium slugger who hits from the left side. Money shouldn't be a factor here because there isn't anything else on the pitching market worth spending the money on.

    If we cant afford it, no one can, which means hes not getting 35-40 million. He gets 30 max, maybe less.

    The guy can't hit for power for whatever reason but he has a 128 wRC+ over his last 92PA.
