    I'm a little surprised Cleveland traded away an OFer as their MLB OF has combined for a horrendous .220/.301/.323 slash line so far.

    He isn't good, but he's at least slightly above replacement level. The other options are worse.

    I wouldn't want to trade for anyone who'd cost a legit prospect with Stanton, Hicks, Frazier, and Judge returning at some point.

    And signing a FA cold off the street like Span would not help the immediate need to get someone on the roster this week.

    I agree but much like with Green, Boone still trusts Holder. Tarpley will be the one that goes back down.

    I also don't think it's a coincidence that the pitching was mostly terrific as soon as he went out.

    What you've been seeing from the Yankees is something you don't see when guys like Sanchez and Stanton are healthy. Situational, two out hitting. Move runners along. When you need a run don't try to hit a home run. Just hit the sac fly.
    CC has raved about Sanchez and how much he enjoys having him catch. I honestly don't know if I've seen a homegrown Yankee who has performed so well (2018 sucked, no denying that) get as much criticism as Sanchez.

    ...but it's not. It's long been said a manager can't do that much to add wins, but he can add losses by bonehead moves. Yes, it's not his fault when players don't perform, unless there was a more logical choice of player to place in that situation with a higher probability of success.

    I'd rather have the current guys than Maybin.

    Maybin's upside is that he can be immediately discarded if any of our outfielders ever get healthy.

    Maybin has a better chance of not making every fly ball look like an adventure. He's also used to striking out so he won't go back to the dugout looking like the umpire just kicked his dog when he get's rung up.

    Especially with regards to the pen, the philosophy is clearly on the long game. Essentially we're seeing the anti Joe Torre bullpen usage so no one gets Scott Proctor'd. So everyone needs to perform to keep everyone else fresh. With the 3 batter minimum next year, we're going to see this type of management around the league more and more.

    Wade doesn't have a credible sample size but but the eye test and UZR/150 see him as infielder trying to learn the OF on the fly at the MLB level and not doing a very good job at it.

    My opinion isn't influenced by whatever is said elsewhere. I just don't like the guy as a player. The catcher position is about managing the pitching staff and if you can hit fine. But he doesn't do the most important job that a catcher has to do.

    I wonder if the Marlins would have taken him straight up for Realmuto?

    Yes, but if he's using the wrong players in the wrong spots than yes. And I'm not talking about from a hindsight perspective (i.e. the right reliever just blew it, etc.). Talent is far bigger driver of wins than management especially when analytics drives a lot of the decisions.

    We shall see if he does ever play here. I believe we will all be disappointed in him when they let him go.

    This. I can't recall that I've seen an OF ever be so slow to read and come in on fly balls. And Wade is not slow at all, he just has horrible reads for anything in front of him and also plays pretty deep.

    I'm pretty sure he'll disappoint too. But I believe it would also be the first off day for Gardner this year.
    When they DFA Maybin if/when outfielders return from the DL, I'm sure no one on this board will lose any sleep.
