What is up with the Odor trade? They didn't give up much, but they aren't getting much.

Low average, strikes out a lot but has power. Sound familiar? Other than being left handed...hard to see how he helps.

He has a mean right hook. Can be the Yankees designated puncher.

Is there a team who's hitters pattern would fit any better than the Yanks for a .231/.289 lifetime hitter who strikes out about every 3rd AB? Unbelievable they need hitters who can hit .300 and get on base vs good pitching.

Seriously...what is this about? He isn't even that great defensively.

Only thing I can come up with is he is a lefty. I would rather play Tyler wade.

I just don't get it.

Yep lefty. Best bet was Didi coming back so that our Yanks weren’t stuck with a less than a average SS in Torres. Cashman had is chances he did nothing and last night just showed the norm now, a team who strikes out a lot with RISP. Add to it 5 games in a guy who goes 3-5 with 4 RBI needs to sit out with “general soreness” there’s your same ol cant possibly win a WS team. I don’t get it either.

Why do the Yankees completely lose control of their anal orifices when they see the Rays in the other dugout?

It's hard to watch. Honestly...it's more than the Rays right now..the team is playing awful. I am sure they will go on a hot streak against the tigers and Orioles and make the playoffs only to get knocked out in the first round.

Hard to be optimistic with this team.

They don’t seem to have any energy, team cohesion. Not typically a problem so much in baseball but this team is lifeless.

I saw one inning today. Aaron Hicks was a butcher in CF.

They don't have the heart, soul and fire of a baseball team that can do much. Throw in that they're stuck with Stanton, who shows-up every 5th game to hit a HR and then goes back to bed, Hicks who is a shadow of himself since his injury, and an overall .220 batting average, just...
