Current Projected

Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

TGS NY: How Yankees pulled off empire-building Giancarlo Stanton trade

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.—If not for the Babe Ruth of Japan, the New York Yankees’ new version of Mantle and Maris likely never would have been formed. It was 23-year-old Japanese wunderkind Shohei Ohtani, not Giancarlo Stanton, who had been the Yankees’ obsession for years, and it was Ohtani whom they hoped to woo to the Bronx this winter.

The team had a presentation planned in which Ohtani would have been told he could pitch and DH for the Yankees. But Ohtani never even let the perceived favorites make a pitch in person. He ruled them out before they could even really come to bat.

And because of Ohtani’s decision, now Stanton and Aaron Judge, two outfield behemoths, are teammates, putting together potentially the most devastating home-run-hitting combination in baseball history. The transaction to make Stanton a Yankee mostly transpired in a 48-hour whirlwind on Thursday and Friday of last week, but it actually was years in the making.

I’ve forgotten all about that Ohtani fellow.

The Yankees are probably not quite done yet this offseason.  I’m sure they’ll be trying to pawn off Ellsbury somewhere and getting a pitcher.  I suppose they may look to get someone for 2B if only to delay Gleyber Torres’s service time clock.

As it stands now, CAIRO has them projected at around 93-94 wins if they do nothing else this offseason.  Adding a starter might bump them up to 95 wins or so.  That’s pretty good considering we aren’t even in 2018 yet.
