    Yeah probably but I don't think they were ever going to be in on Haper even if they hadn't brought Gardner back for another year.

    Signing Gardy should not be a factor in not wanting Harper. Yes, Hal was too cheap to pay Harper but Gardy was never part of that equation.

    You're assuming the folks on this board are rational. I would not expect that of someone with a join date of 2001.
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    He's been pressed into more action than he's needed to, but there is something to be said of the value he brings as a leader on the team and showing the young players the "Yankee Way"

    I know that stuff seems cliche, but organizations that have a unique culture established throughout all levels tend to be able to sustain success for longer periods of time.

The rest of us appreciate the years of service, especially to players who only played for the Yankees, and understand that they have become bench players with limited roles.
    Let the kids play.

    Right. Harper isn't a center fielder. Gardy was signed as insurance in case Hicks went down and Florial needed another full season in the minors. The fact that they gave him a few million more than he would have gotten elsewhere had nothing to do with who was or wasn't signed.

    Tarp is on the field. We can't get through a single Orioles series without weather issues.

    Did the bus get to Baltimore yet? That's the important thing.
    Do not fear, all we want to do is talk.

    Only words, and then your thoughts.

    Excellent post.
    More people have walked on the moon than have scored an earned run off of Mariano Rivera in the postseason.

    Anyone still believe Happ was a better move than Corbin?
