Yankees Split On Trading For Madison Bumgarner 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jun 27, 2019 12:00 pm

The New York Yankees are split internally on trading for Madison Bumgarner before the July 31 deadline.

New York\'s executives like the idea of adding Bumgarner for the playoff push, but the analytics department may suggest otherwise.

In 16 career playoff games, the left-hander is 8-3 with a 2.11 ERA.

\"I\'m the same guy I was in 2014, contrary to popular belief,\" Bumgarner said. \"I know that gets said a lot, \'Oh, he\'s not the same guy he used to be.\' That\'s just … wrong. Numbers are what they are right now, but let\'s just wait to the end of the season. And we\'ll check. Maybe they won\'t be there and maybe they will. All I know is, the last two years, the stuff was a little different rushing back from two injuries. Now? How I feel is the same. My stuff is the same.\"

However, Bumgarner has a 4.21 ERA this season.

Just pin this because I’m not going to talk about it all summer. #sfgiants not trading Bumgarner this year, and they’re certainly never going to trade (everfx) one of the greatest postseason pitchers in history, perhaps THE greatest, to a team they someday might meet in October. NEXT!!!
