No, the early rumors are that Yanks are fine staying inhouse at 3rd & 2nd until Torres & Andujar are ready.  Word is that the Yanks will call up Torres around the 2nd or 3rd week of the season

It’s May. 

And Yanks will be playing in October like they did last year.

The Yankees need Kershaw and really they need Kershaw and more. Like they also need Dallas Keuchel.  If the Yankees really want to win a World Series next season they need both Kershaw and Keuchel 

 

 

 The Yankees are under the luxury tax and have big contracts coming off.  They can afford these pitchers and need them otherwise enjoy wasting the careers of Judge, Stanton, Sanchez, Torres etc

Kershaw not always the best playoff pitcher

The slider has lost the tremendous bite that he had. Velocity is down also. More difficulty in finishing batters off.

That was certainly not  his best "stuff" last night, but pitchers do not have their best stuff at least 40% of the time. He is still figuring out how to get by when he does not have it all working. It is what happens as you get that many innings logged.

Another great effort last night. 3 Ip, 4ER, ERA12.0. As bad as that was, it probably lowered his career post season ERA. The Yankees need Kershaw about as much as North Carolina needs more rain. Maybe it's time for Shefield to get his chance?

Just say no to Kershaw.   They can lose in the playoffs without paying him 30+ million to lose for them

The Jets have lost to the eventual Super Bowl winners 6 of the last 12 years.

The last time we lost in the playoffs to the eventual super bowl champions was 1998 to Denver and I think in our history we've only lost in the playoffs twice to eventual SB champions.  1969 to KC, 1998 to Denver

I don't see anywhere in my post where I said playoffs. Do you really think that I believe the Jets made the playoffs 6 of the last 12 years?

Ok.  I was just pointing that fact out since you responded to a post about the Yankees losing in the playoffs to the eventual champ the last 2 years.

Yankees might not make the playoffs next year if they don’t sign neither Keuchel nor Kershaw.  Severino had a phenomenal first half of last season and came back to earth without that might not even get the wildcard   the Rays won 90 games and didn’t get a wildcard

They need 2 starters.   I take the guy off Arizona over Keuchel, and either trade or sign a 2nd.

What does playoffs have to do with what he said ? Scott NEVER said playoffs if I read it correctly. Which I did.

You have a young team. Just add a piece or 2 (starting pitcher?) and you'll be in the thick of it again.

Corbin is rated as the top FA pitcher and he grew up a Yankee fan if I recall.

Gardner could have gotten more years and money from another team.  Good to have him back

Where? What team is giving multiple years to a sub .700 OPS 35 year old? More than 8 million fora fourth/fifth outfielder who is a defensive replacement/pinch runner at this point? He’s been a solid player for them for a long time but he wasn’t getting more of anything, anywhere.

I don't think he gets more than a 2 year, 9 million some where else.

He's a guy who means more to the Yanks than he would any other team.   For them, he's a lefty (which they need) who can play left and center, is well liked in the club house, and can handle NY.   I like Hicks, but he has been injury prone, so having someone who can fill in at CF is nice, and Gardner, even at 35, is a good 4th outfielder who can play every day in spurts.   He will be helped by hopefully only playing about 80-90 games, so he doesn't wear down and get dinged up.

The Mets could use a guy like Gardner he’s still a productive player even at his age and even though you obviously hate him because he’s a yankee

So, Kershaw really wanted to stay a Dodger. wound up extending for 1 more year, at about $28m. 

That was the thought during the WS. And so it came to pass. He's lucky he got it. IMO he's peaked and is on the downside of the hill.

That's not it at all. Yankee deal was the best he was getting IMO. Doubt he'd get more anywhere else. It's a win win deal.

what is wrong w/ you guys? I was just making a point about the team we are all here on this board for and comparing it to that statement which obviously he was talking about the postseason whether he said it or not.  Some folks around here need to rub one out and relax.

You know he took a pay cut to resign right ?

Kind of.   They bought out his final year at 2 million, and then gave him the new contract. 

They could have just bought him out, and not re signed him.   No one was giving him a 1 year 12 million deal. 

I like the guy, I'm glad he's back, I hope he is glad he is back
