    Is Corbin's slider as good as Millers was/is?

    On the 356 plate appearances decided on Corbin's slider, opposing batters hit just .145 and slugged just .243. Corbin racked up 195 strikeouts on sliders alone, meaning 54.8 percent of those 356 plate appearances resulted in a K. Batters missed on 53.7 percent of their total swings at Corbin's slider -- 387 of 721 -

    His slider was the 4th best pitch in baseball this year behind only JV, Scherzer and Cole's 4 seam FB.

    Yankees To Sign Ryan Lavarnway

    By Jeff Todd | November 8, 2018 at 8:25pm CDT
    The Yankees have agreed to a minors pact with backstop Ryan Lavarnway, per Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com (via Twitter). Further details are not yet known.
    Lavarnway, 31, has seen action in seven MLB campaigns — including four with the division-rival Red Sox. Since his tenure in Boston wrapped up in disappointing fashion, the one-time top prospect has functioned as a journeyman depth piece.
    That may not have been what was once hoped for, but Lavarnway has remained in demand from organizations that want a steady presence on hand in the upper minors. He only saw brief MLB action last year with the Pirates, but turned in a strong offensive season (.288/.375/.485 in 303 plate appearances) for their top affiliate.


    YAY huge deal lol

    Isnt Texas rebuilding? What would they want with Gray? Not to mention, that ballpark is probably not a great fit for him.

    For whatever its worth, Todd Helton once called Patrick Corbin's slider the best he has ever seen.

    Fact is, you dont discriminate against a rookie simply because hes a rookie. Talent should be the priority - not seniority.

    The stats for 2018 on his slider might back that up....

    The Red Sox had a xwOBA of 0.224 against lefty pitcher's sliders/curves. This ranked dead last in baseball.

    Probably why they'll be all over Corbin.

    He would but why would they even entertain trading him? They are supposedly going to be under the tax for at least the next 4 years and they'll have to replace Kershaw (3), Hill, and Ryu. I think Buehler, Urias and Ferguson are their future.

    For the same reason the Yankees would want to trade Chad Green.

    Unless Hal and Cashman are playing possum, expect another year of looking at Bostons backside in 2019:

    I dont get the whole Hal is obsessed with staying under the cap thing. There is no reason to believe thats the case but people are stating it as if its fact.

    And until we go over the cap that will be the opinion of many of us. Hal is not George or Henry either.

    Everything is going just as planned. We have to be the favorites now.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    There is a reason, and that reason is because Hal himself has repeatedly stated that this is his goal, and that "you don't need to spend $200 million to win a championship".

    Trading Taylor Widener to the D-Backs as part of the Drury deal was a huge mistake by Cashman. Looks like this kid is going to be a stud.

    He does look good but hes also 24 and has yet to pitch in AAA.

    He turned 24 a few weeks after the season ended (October 24) and he's most likely starting the 2019 season in AAA.

    His peripherals just keep improving as he moves up through the minors.

    He repeatedly said he plans to stay under the cap this year?
