    Was disappointed but who knows how we would bounce back from the injury. Could be another Mark Montgomery and never get it back.

    Anyone surprised at how much the ChiSox got for Eaton? Yes he was on a cheap contract and had a good year but is he really better than Gardner? I would have happily taken half of that haul (Giolito only would have done nicely).

    Five years at $86 million.
    The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

    Not bad at all. Happy we improved without giving up a pick.

    I love this deal. Basically we got promising prospects for money, and Betances can go back to the 8th inning where he was much better.

    Rule 5 draft. Through first 10 picks 3 were Yankees.
    Luis Torrens to Cincinnati with 2nd Pick.
    Caleb Smith to Milwaukee with 7th
    Tyler Webb to Pittsburgh with 10th.
    My bet is Webb sticks. Maybe Smith. But not Torrens. I hope not anyway.

    If he can stay healthy, he cold be very useful and productive.. Let's see what Girardi does with him, assuming he makes the roster.
    North of the Big Apple but missing Central Fla

    Chris Carter. Cheap. Power. May delay some costs with Bird. Allow for more depth. Add a trade chip at the deadline. At the cost, it is a smart move.

    Yeah the guy in the Post thought it was a smart move too. I look at that .219 avg, the 200 K's and the bad defense and I'm not so sure. So who gets sacrificed from the roster? Austin? Refsnyder?
    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

    Both. Basically Refsnyder, Austin and Bird were competing for 2 slots. Now they are competing for 1. Ideally Bird wins it but not necessarily.

    Well Rob was gonna be the UT, so that's not necessarily what Carter was coming to do.

    I hate this signing.

    Refsnyder was probably not going to be the UT guy. That was and is Torreyes. Unless he loses the job in spring training.

    Austin was supposed to be the RH bat and back up at 1B, RF and DH. Carter is basically the same but more of a known quantity. Not a great one but not without uses. Austin can work on some things at AAA. It is not bad depth.

    Pathetic news conference. Yes Betances over reached but no need to insult him after the fact.

    If he gets back to that level might even be a true chip at the deadline.
