Was he a draft pick or a prospect from a trade?

Hell of a signing, him and Conforto can be the start of something special on offense. Just need a healthy squad and a smart training staff.

Now we're supposed to believe that because he comes from a privileged family and finished high school that he'll be a good baseball player? Edgin finished high school too.

Harvey and Noah should be back before the end of the season. Harvey is ahead of Noah. Familia could be back the 3rd week of August. Dominic Smith should be up later this month. Sandy's contract never came up.

The more I read this, the more classic it becomes. I may just sig it.

Yeah, but no one wants him. :lol: No one needs a LH bat I guess. Everybody hits at least 20 HRs these days. And every pitcher throws at least 95 MPH

The Yankees could use Bruce and/or Granderson.

Yes, they could. They also could've used Duda too. Should be interesting.
