That's Judge's high bar. If he can hit a modest .250 with 20-25 hrs and 50-65 RBIs in his first full season, I will be extremely pleased.
Sanchez will get back on track, he was getting there until he was hurt. Didi is going to have a break out season.
Bird is the wild card. He needs to just focus on making contact and taking what's there. The Yanks just need him to hit for average.
What's crazy is the fact the Yanks haven't even called up Torres and Clint "Hawkeye" Frazier.
I still think Cashman will make a splash and go hard after Bryce.
I like that modest projection, he's bound to have ups and downs. Keeping the end result realistic will just mean if he keeps things up, pleasant surprises later.
Sanchez and Didi are two I'm really confident in, especially if the bats around them stay as potent as they have been so far. There's solid protection in the line-up. Bird, I never got hype for but hearing everyone else talk about him and his work ethic plus a nice Spring has me way more interested to watch him grow. With Torres and Frazier and then some waiting, it's exciting as hell to think about what this roster could look like a year from now.
I don't want Harper..I wouldn't mind giving Machado a long look though but I really think if we're gonna spend it should be to solidify the rotation. Our pitchers have really done a solid job lately but I'm skeptical.
Harper would be cool, but I love the home grown talent. I want to let the kids rock for a bit.
