    Should be. Sorry. I just think he's right up Cashman's alley and would be surprised if he isn't.

    Re: 2018 Trade Deadline Thread

    We have to remember that Green and German are quite horrible, pitching to mid 5 ERAs. CC is doing it with smoke and mirrors and that knee can blow any minute. Tanaka gives up too many dingers and that elbow hangs by a worn thread. We have one reliable starter. Pretty much anything is an upgrade.
    Standings: Big Inning 32-16; Blue Cut 27-21; Shoo Fly 26-22; Husk 22-26; Frank Pierce 21-27; Iowa City 16-32.

    Re: 2018 Trade Deadline Thread

    I'd definitely be happy with a Harvey pickup:

    The other, and more important, question is: Can he actually help the Yankees? His numbers have downward-spiraled since 2015, but there’s evidence to suggest the Dark Knight is rising. In his first six starts with the Reds, Harvey had a few decent outings, but was mostly the same pitcher he had been recently with the Mets. He surrendered seven home runs, 18 runs total, and pitched to a 5.04 ERA with a 5.45 FIP. His 17.9% HR/FB was downright ugly.

    In his six starts since then, it’s been a different story. During this time, he’s only allowed 10 runs. His ERA and FIP dropped down to 2.38 and 2.64, respectively. From his first six starts to his last six, Harvey also increased his groundball percentage from 40.4% up to 49%. That’s a big jump to go along with the fact that he did not allow a home run in his last six starts. There’s reason to believe that this change is for real.

    In those first six games, Harvey’s four-seam fastball averaged about 94.6 mph. In his last six, he averaged around 95.15 mph and even hit 97 mph a few times. According to Ron Wolschleger of Beyond the Box Score, this could just be a result of building arm strength and getting healthy, but the uptick in velocity seems to stem from some small, mechanical adjustments Harvey has made. From his shoulder positioning, to where his hand starts in his glove, to where he lands, the results have been positive thus far.

    If the Yankees are serious about acquiring starting pitching, Harvey may not be the most far-fetched idea in the world. It’s understandable to be cautious at the prospect of the Yankees going after Harvey. Questions loom, but there are signs of a turnaround.

    Outside of a bonafide ace like deGrom or Syndergaard, Harvey probably has the most potential out there. He’s certainly more exciting than Happ or Hamels. His recent history and the fact that he’s a free agent at the end of the year, should also drive his price down. The idea of him pitching well for the Yankees would also break Mets fans hearts, an added bonus.
    In a world where the options are slim, giving the Dark Knight a chance to return to Gotham might make the most sense.

    I thought they should try and get him when he was let go. We need pitching and he's a pitcher with potential.

    He's probably one of, if not the only low cost option with ace potential.

    Plus you have the added bonus of him coming over and talking trash about the Mets organization.

    2018 MLB Trade Deadline Preview

    YANKEES
    Where they stand: 62-33, second place AL East
    4.5 GB, hold first AL wild card

    What they need: A first baseman and starting pitching Ė 1B Greg Bird canít stay healthy and hasnít been great when he has played, while backup Neil Walker has struggled filling in. First base is the one glaring weak spot in the Yankees order and a sizable one. The rotation could use another arm with Sonny Gray and Domingo German struggling and Masahiro Tanaka delivering middling results. Because theyíre the Yankees, they were in the Manny Machado sweepstakes even though shortstop and third base arenít pressing needs.

    What they have to offer: Young major league position players and low-level pitchers Ė The Yankees farm system isnít as strong as it once was due to graduations. In order to get an ace like Jacob deGrom or a star like Machado, they would likely have to part with young big leaguers such as 2B Gleyber Torres, 3B Miguel Andjujar or OF Clint Frazier. LHP Justus Sheffield is their best pitching prospect and top minor league trade ticket, and below him is a deep well of teenage arms led by RHPs Matt Sauer, Luis Medina and Deivi Garcia.

    Potential fits: Mets RHPs Jacob deGrom, Zack Wheeler; Rangers LHP Cole Hamels; Marlins 1B Justin Bour; Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak; White Sox 1B Jose Abreu.

    Wonder if the Nats would do a Gio for Sonny trade.

    The Nats sell a bit but not completely. Gio FA after this season. They get a guy who can fit into their rotation for next season at a low cost.
