I dig: bringing in Molina for a couple of years, mainly for his defense and leadership. Dumping Sanchez. Keeping Higgy as backup. Signing Brantley to balance out our lineup. Getting a pitcher.

If we sign Molina, hopefully we'll have a catcher from the minors ready to go in a couple of years.


Molina is a shell of his former self. Higgy would be better at this point. I think that kid Seigler will be ready in a couple of years. Pure athlete. Could be our switch hitting Realmuto.


If we bringing in Molina it's not for his batting really. I think he would still hold his own behind the plate and with the pitchers. It's more about getting some more leadership in that clubhouse. I would be cool with a platoon between him and Higgy because I like Higgy a lot but he's not really starting caliber either.

Yankees have a history of having strong personalities and leadership at Catcher (Yogi, Munson, Girardi, Posada). I think it's a missing element.

Yeah Seigler is the front leading prospect catcher in the minors they also signed an international guy ( a Venezuelan I think) that is interesting but Seigler has been injury prone so far but yeah I think Yankees should look to do a bridge plan until they can call up a good catcher from the minors. I am more than ready to move on from Sanchez.

100 % . Do we know when Seigler might be ready? I think we can get Molina for 2 years and platoon him with Higgy like you said until Seigler is ready. Molina can still be able to hit at least .250 which is alot better than Sanchez. I am also done with Sanchez, he's lazy and it seems like he don't give af.

Seigler has been both injury prone (I seem to recall him having back problems at the outset of his career) and had an absolutely abysmal 2019 before his season ended with a fractured patella. Having 2020 wiped out on top of it all is doing him no favors. He was already an old HS draftee and will be 22 next summer, playing only 54 games since being drafted. Supposedly handles pitchers well and has a great walk rate, but hasn't shown much else in his limited time in full season.

I'm not saying it can't work out for him, but I've personally got zero expectations at this point. There's nothing publicly available that indicates he'll be Major League ready at any point in the next few years. He's got a LONG road to go.

Great story and intriguing athlete, though. Any prospect that can switch-pitch is always interesting to follow.

Even with Britton back in the fold, does picking up Hand at $10M make sense? So much of the talk surrounds the position players and starters but with Kahnle certainly missed and likely a goner, Green and certainly Ottavino taking steps backward and the rest of the pen hit or miss, Hand could be a reliable seventh inning guy capable of covering Britton and Chapman or allow the latter to be moved if he waives his no trade. My guess is that Cashman contingency planned for the possibility of Hand’s availability but would have to successfully facilitate a Britton, Chapman or Ottavino trade before committing more money to the already expenive pen versus other areas of need.

Charlie Morton now on the market...watcha think
The mission: to end false narratives about the Knicks

Example of Fake Narratives:
-The Melo era should be celebrated
-Phil Jackson was a good GM
-Randle could be good as a third option

They should look into him. He's pitched well in the AL these last few seasons after being a NL pitcher most of his career. Gotta watch the years they give him though. He's pretty old.

Wonder if it's still Florida or bust for morton. He wanted to be close to his family last time or retire. If he is willing to come here I'm cool on a 2 year deal.

Fixing the pitching behind Cole is a must if they want to win a title

good point. We absolutely need to get a top reliever whether trade or FA. Hendriks or Treinen will do. We been after Hader for a while now too. We definitely need to get somebody in that tier since Khanle is gone and our guys regressing. I was also thinking of trading Chapman for prospects and also getting rid of his big contract since he always blows games when it really counts. So we need a reliever or 2 and maybe 2 starters as well. Should be an interesting off season

Congratulations to DJ, but it is rare that a Yankee player receives an award.

We've seen guys like Jeter, Matsui, and Andujar get robbed over the years.

i know he's 32 and not in his mid 20s, but I think LeMahieu is IMPERATIVE for the Yankees to bring back, above anything else. if the money's not there outright, I'd be ok with letting Gardy, Paxton, Tanaka and Kahnle all walk to insure I had enough payroll for DJ and Gio eventually. If it took a 5 year/$100mm offer for DJ, I think the Yankees bite the bullet and do it. We got over on this guy the last 2 years -- time to pay the man what he deserves.

Doubt they go 5 years. And Paxton and Kahnle will most certainly walk.

Leave the LeMathieu. Take the pick. It’s a great year to give the kid a couple hundred at bats and there will be a ton of talent available on the cheap throughout the year if he falters.

DJ is our only consistent AVG and contact hitter in our lineup. He's not replaceable.

I agree with each of your points. However, the most valuable use of limited salary available under the tax line has a high probability of being absorption of salary while increasing throughout a season of continued financial losses and could be the impetus for getting out from under Stanton’s half dozen years of clogging the DH spot with a far less painful return if he can stay healthy for half the season.
