    Cheer up...Brett Gardner might top .240 if he finishes strong!

    The Yankees do not have a .300 hitter. (Leader is Andujar, .299 average.)

    Hope Jeter made some investments, because he has a humongous house in a very high tax area. I can't ever see a need for having that big of a house.

    Puttin' in my Christmas wish....

    "Yankees Now Need to Go All Out to Acquire Corey Kluber

    Now that the Indians are reportedly getting ready to sell off a lot of their roster, many teams are going to be interested in the abundance of talent Cleveland has to offer. One man that has surely already picked up the phone is Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

    The two-time Cy Young winner is available in trade talks and the Yankees should do anything they can in order to acquire him. Imagine pairing Kluber, who has a career 3.09 ERA, with All-Stars like Luis Severino and free agent Patrick Corbin at the front of the rotation? The thought alone should prompt Cashman to get the deal done before the weekend is over.

    New York is one of the few teams that can afford to pull off such a trade. Their farm system is overflowing with talent and it wouldn't hurt the Yankees to part with a few prospects if it means getting them closer to usurping the Sox in the AL East."

    "The Yankees Snapped Up This Offseason’s Best Pitcher
    The Yankees acquired left-handed pitcher James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners on Monday evening for a package of three prospects. While he might not be a household name outside the Pacific Northwest, he offers the Yankees the potential for a second legit ace alongside Luis Severino.

    Paxton ranks near the top of the leaderboard in nearly every rate statistic that indicates pitcher dominance. Since his breakout 2017 season, Paxton ranks sixth in the majors in strikeouts per nine innings (11.1) among pitchers who have thrown at least 150 innings, sixth in strikeout percentage minus walk percentage (23.8 percent) and eighth in wins above replacement per 200 innings (5.7) — a rough measure of what a healthy starting pitcher might provide over a full season — trailing starters Chris Sale, Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom, Corey Kluber, Noah Syndergaard and Severino, plus reliever Blake Treinen, who got a lot of work in last year. In other words, the elite of the elite. He ranks seventh since 2017 in fielding-independent pitching (2.95), which is scaled like ERA but factors out how the defense affects pitchers’ stats, and 34th by a more traditional measure, ERA (3.40)."
