    He once PH for Clete Boyer is either the first or 2nd inning of a world series game, no kidding.

    • Hate to sound greedy but if Yanks strike out on both Machado and Harper it will be a hard pill to swallow. I may be in the majority but I think I prefer Harper. I can only imagine the damage his left handed swing can do in Yankee Stadium. I also think they should revisit trading for Mad Bum from SF. Tanaka Paxton and CC all have major injury concerns

        I don't want Harper, and I am not sold on Machado either. If the plan is to stay at or near the luxurty tax threshold, I would prefer to put more money into pitching.

          Well with pitching they will have to go the trade route unless they maybe sign Kuechel. I think Mad Bum would be a good idea if SF makes him available. I wanted Kluber but it sounds like the asking price wasn't reasonable. I could just see Harper being a left handed version of Judge in Yankee stadium. Unless they think they have a real shot of signing Trout in a couple of years. I understand why the Yanks went under the luxury tax last year ( to reset the penalty) but they really shouldn't be $30M or $40M below Boston going forward

            • I was 9 years old when he came up and saved the season for the Yankees, if he came up earlier say 1960 or later say late 1970's or during the Torre run, he would be a hall of fame candidate. He won with really crappy Yankee teams 20 games either 2 or 3 times, he really was a great pitcher and a better pitching coach. RIP.

                    Very happy for Roy even though I know it was a given. Still bummed about what happened to him.

                      As for Pettitte, as great a Yankee as he was, I don't think he belongs in the HOF. Just my opinion.

                      Moose got in and he has 14 more wins than Pettitte. Overall, I thought Andy was the better pitcher, I'd put him in.

                        I agree that Pettitte should be in over Mussina. But I don't think either one belong. I am very tough when it comes to things like Hall of Fame and retiring numbers.

                          I agree, Moose was good, not great, consistent, but not dominating. I just don't see how they could put one in over the other? I think Andy only got 9% of the vote. I don't understand the discrepancy.

                          • Adam Ottavino on joining Yankees: 'A dream come true'

                            Ottavino went 6-4 with a 2.43 ERA, six saves and 112 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings with the Rockies last season. In his eight-year career, he has a 3.68 ERA and a 2.67 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

                            The Yankees have told him they plan to be judicious with that jewel that is their bullpen and use each reliever in a way that doesn’t overly tax one arm. Ottavino joins another offseason acquisition — Zach Britton, who re-signed with the Yankees — along with Dellin Betances and closer Aroldis Chapman. Throw Chad Green and Jonathan Holder into the mix, and that's a formidable relief corps.

                            Don't know who he is but the strikeout rate is impressive. I would still like to see a quality starter added to the rotation.

                              Killer bullpen. I agree, one more starter needed.
