  1. This is exactly why I'm not interested in the guy. Dealing with the Mets organization isn't worth it...prospects come and go...there will be another big deal next year. I would rather pay a premium for someone than hope the Mets figure their ish out...whenever that may be.

    Really? I'm a Yankees fan who does the exact same thing and have the exact opposite take. The Yankees are fed up with Headley and if Torres can put together a hot couple of weeks they'd be thrilled to hand the third base job over to him, IMO. 

     

    This is my thought as well. I think they have seen what they need to from Headley. They will keep him for utility and leadership but if Torres shows he is ready, Headley will not be the one stopping him.

    Stop it...you didn't overpay, but can't say for sure since I don't know your format. Frazier is benefiting from Yankees hype, but he has some major flaws to his game. You did well in the deal. 

     

    Thats comforting haha. I'll have Trout, Betts, Kershaw most likely as my other three keepers, and then Torres.

     

    i can't wait to see what this kid can do in the majors.

    What was the cost in a keeper?  Would like to add

     

    I paid Rizzo, Kipnis, Clint Frazier for N.Cruz, Keuchel, Torres...I know I overpaid but we only keep 4 and I am loaded up right now. This trade will help me a bunch more this year and help me fill a hole at SS/3B. With Rizzo 28 and having a doen year, it may be a good time to move. Like I said, I think I paid a bunch but 2-4 elite from Rizzo or 10 from Torres

    Typically Yahoo only adds newly signed players in the following off-season unless that player makes his MLB debut during the same season (and then the player gets added to waivers the night the player makes his debut).

     

    Yea, off-season or when a player is added to a teams 40 man roster. (I've contacted Yahoo support about these things in the past ?)

    As I've been saying he's coming a lot sooner than most realize. My prediction is still July. Could even be earlier... the Yankees aren't going to let Chase Headley stink it up all year again now that they have a contender. 

     

    Im with you there. I think what you are going to see with the Yankees this year is a little what you saw this the Cubs the last two years. Youth breaking through before expected and they will make a couple deals at the deadline for some SPs and could make a run. They fall short and are primed and ready for 2018/2019 runs.

    Impressive stuff... topped out at 100 MPH per some Twitter reports. Really hope they fully unleash him soon so we can see what he can do over 100 pitches as opposed to 60 or 70.

     

    Yea, I am trying like crazy to keep my tabs on this forum. I am in a massive rebuild and would LOVE to get a young arm to build upon. This is impressive and I am interested in seeing where he goes.

    His 2nd AA start was today vs Springfield (STL affiliate).

     

    Final line:

     

    3.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K

     

    68 pitches (45 strikes).

     

    9 Ks in 3.2 IP? 2 dudes didnt strike out vs him? Wow.

  9. Any updates on this dude? I see Ken Rosenthal said he could be signing as early as May 20th.

     

    Trying to figure out how much FAAB to throw at Zimmer and still have enough to outpay my league on Robert.

    Castro cementing himself as the 2B of the future played a role in this.

     

    Agreed. I could see Castro move to 3B though and Torres slot in to SS, Didi to 2B or 3B. It will work itself out but a hole opens once Headley is gone after this year (I think).

    I think that he's getting moved for Chapman

     

    Yup, looks likely. I wonder how soon he makes the big club. Still a couple years? My guess is Didi at SS, slide Castro to 3B and Torres 2B? Or Didi to 2B and Torres SS
