I hate it but it was a salary dump. They're trying to get back under the luxury tax line. I would love to see them resign Tanaka to a 2-3 year deal because with the rotation they have now, it's not going to cut it in October I'm afraid to say.

Screw Curt Schilling and I'm glad he and no one else got in. Too many PED users.

What is your take on people saying that players like Bonds should be in the hall of fame because he was a hall of fame player before he took steroids? A number of young people actually see him as the greatest player of all time. Which I will never understand and I think it shows that some people do not put much weight on how great older players like Ruth, Gehrig, Williams, Mays etc. were in comparison to how the game is played today. A lot of kids and proponents of today’s game do not believe that the players I named would make an MLB roster today let alone be the best of this generation.

I too believe Bonds, Clemens, and others were future HOFers before the connections to PED's. However, because of it, I don't want to see them in the Hall. They could have gotten in without them. It's like the Astros. Would they have won the World Series without the cheating scandal? We'll never know. But everyone outside of Houston views that title as tainted. So yeah, you put up even better numbers, but we'll never know where you would have fallen without them. You didn't need them, but got greedy or had too much of an ego to do it on your own. As for Schilling, as much as I may hate the guy personally, I think it's absurd to keep him out solely because of how outspoken about his politics he is. I don't even know why he was in the panel for the hearing back in the day along with Sosa, McGwire, Canseco, and Palmeiro? I think he's a borderline HOFer, and I'm sure he'll get in next year.

That’s how I feel about the situation. I was surprised they let Piazza in after all of the accusations against him. I don’t know how significant the effects of the PEDs were, but Bonds, Sosa and others during that time hit more home runs than they ever have in their careers prior to those few years. I think that’s evidence enough to say PEDs can turn someone who’s already a good hitter into an all time great hitter.

Bonds was great before he took steroids. But he was not looked at as an all time great hitter and player like some of the players in the top 5 discussion until the early 2000s when he started to hit home runs and walk at a historic rate. Coincidentally those may have been his biggest juicing years.

Like you said, Bonds, Sosa, McGwire, their numbers skyrocketed during the PED Era. I tip my hat even more to the pitchers of that day going up against guys like that. IMO, Aaron is still the homerun king.

Do you think the Yankees are done making moves? I like that Frazier will be starting in Left.

If they make any more, they'll be smaller moves like minor league contracts or inviting guys to spring training. I don't see them going after anyone big this late in the game. We're stuck with the rotation we have unless they make a trade unfortunately.

That’s concerning to me. I am not confident that this is a championship team but we must see how they all play first. And this is a full season so there is plenty of time for trades.

I say the same thing. I'm always optimistic about the Yankees every year but after the last few Octobers and seeing this rotation, I'm not convinced they can win with these guys. You know what you're going to get from Cole but Corey Kluber's only thrown 36 2/3 innings the last 2 years. Taillon's only thrown 37 1/3 during the same time frame. German's been out since September 2019 due to suspension. Severino's coming back by June/July but he's coming back from TJ surgery and those guys always need time to settle in, so I'm not expecting a #2 type pitcher as soon as he comes back. Monty will be your 5 and I want to see Garcia, Schmidt, and King all in the minors and continue to develop, rather than throw them to the wolves in the bigs. Speaking of Schmidt, he now has a strained tendon in his right (pitching) elbow and he's getting shut down. So yes, based on the amount of baggage this group carries with it, I'm not very optimistic unfortunately.

I second everything you said. Another thing that needs to be highlighted is the medical staff. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a team so riddled with injuries like we have been for the past few seasons.

The last 2 years, forgetaboutit! Kluber, Boone, and all of them are saying the right things and in years past that used to get me excited because I believed them, but not anymore. Let their game do the talking. I hope I'm wrong, I really do, but until they can prove to me that they're healthy and can play the way they used to, I ain't buying it. I've heard optimism around Judge and Stanton too. How they've slimmed down and I think started doing yoga and how they are hopeful they can remain healthy. I am too but again, until they prove it to me, I'm expecting both to be on the DL (not IL) at some point this season.
