lee elci, he of owning the radio airwaves in eastern Connecticut, 94.9, had a pal on this am to discuss bombers, and they said that they thought these trades/roster moves are being done to prepare for a big deal coming. i like luke a lot, but it may be that the infield going forward might be gio, gleybar, dj, and mr x? at ss. idk. i like rugalach too, but he and luke may be on the starting outs. looks like monty and domingo may be settling in. hey klubot, looey, come on down!

Word on the street (okay, MLB.com) is the Yanks are acquiring Joey Gallo.

.223 avg and 25 home runs. 75 BBs.

I can't believe he is only 27. He's a Gold Glove RF so I guess he's going to LF?

Huge lefty.

Perfect addition tons of strike outs and a .200 hitter. Cashman at his finest!

I have been warming up to this trade. I guess I am desperate for a lefty bat. And....he is good defensively. I wonder if this is the end of the Clint Frazier experiment. Frazier will start hitting at some point....it just won't be with the Yankees.

Well the scary thing is he’s an improvement on our lefties and defensively but not the answer. Not sure yet what they gave up but I hope none of the many prospects were high on the totem pole.

No matter in his 2 highest AB years he batted .209 and .206 respectively this year at .223 he's killing it LOL. Just another Cashman gem.

They were rising prospects. Duran is a kid that many scouts liked this spring.

The good news is he's hitting 50 points better than Frazier, bad news is Frazier was God-awful at .180 ........ this is a really frustrating move for a fan as we now see there is no end to Cashmans attempt to keep the Yanks irrelevant. He needs to be let go so badly!

At this point I’m kinda, meh whatever. Maybe Gallo gives the team a shot in the arm to make a push for the wild card and beyond, but when not one guy is batting over .300, it makes you wonder what the fudge is going on there…

Have you seen the Rays? They don’t have a .300 hitter either. They have a much lower team batting average and OBP and have over 100 more strikeouts as a team than the Yankees. They’ve also scored 100 more runs despite all that.

So what do we think about Rizzo? I have to admit...the lineup balance is much better.

Rizzo is fine. It adds a solid OBP guy and puts Lemaihue at 2nd base taking out Odor which strengthens the lineup a little. Good addition, but how does Cash give up so much for Gallo too.... and others get Berrios and Duffy? He sucks

The Rays are always an above the numbers team. They are good in clutch situations and don’t beat themselves.

Yanks just won with all three of their pitchers making major league debuts. That's gotta be the first time that's happened in...like ever? Too lazy to check Elias.

Luis Gil first Yankee to pitch six scoreless innings in his debut since 1992 (Sam Militello).

Gil looked good. (Of course I saw the Militello game too he looked good then as well). Nice movement on the fastball and a little slider had some heat too with little effort it seemed. Ridings also some cheese with a real nice breaking ball. Not even in the Top 30 prospects for the Yanks but making a run it seems fast.

And they hit better in this game than they did in the last 4 and yet somehow have won 4 of 5. Thanks only to Rizzo and pitching for the Marlins wins.

I have noticed a pattern.... Yankees win a few games and cliffy loves posting on here....Yankees lose a few games...cliffy disappears.

Casual fan ;)

paddling out the other day when i heard that kumo now sleeps with da fishes (u knew that, amiright?), i wuz thinking how exciting this whole left handed bats balance thing is for our rapidly expanding final run. rizzo and gallo's impact on our defense is epic. you and ur issues?

team just needed a couple of texans to stiffen our spine. yanks now 10 over. 3 back in the loss from sox, which apparently wuz 7 back like 5 minutes ago. highwater thus far. moar to come, much moar. patience is a virtue.

Friday's game was the first time ever a team has won in extra innings and none of its pitchers pitched 2 innings. That's baseball, Susan.

Yankees are 8-1 since news broke they got Rizzo.

They lost 14-0 to the Rays on the day they pulled the trigger for Gallo.
