  1. I don't want to keep +1 Zacha but since mfitz hasn't literally changed his vote since the game started, I guess I feel obligated. Maybe I shouldn't have used 4 non-zacha votes. Nico Hischier: 23 Mackenzie Blackwood : 17 (-1) Travis Zajac : 18 Jack Hughes : 14 Blake Coleman : 14 P.K. Subban : 15  Taylor Hall : 12  Kyle Palmieri : 13   Ty Smith : 13  Damon Severson : 12  Will Butcher : 12  Jesper Bratt: 12 Pavel Zacha: 10 (+1) Jesper Boqvist : 11  Cory Schneider : 10  Wayne Simmonds : 10  Sami Vatanen: 9 Connor Carrick : 1 Andy Greene: 4 ELIMINATED: John Hayden  Mirco Mueller  Kevin Rooney  Miles Wood

  3. I did mean below 4, yes. Whoops. I'll be honest, his bbref page makes me drool. I can't remember the last time a yankee pitcher went 3 consecutive games of 7.0IP. Maybe maybe Severino in the first half of last season? Luckily with the Yankees bullpen, reinforcements are on the way. Betances has been one of the absolute best set-up men in the sport for 3 years now, and he'll be ready to go in a few weeks. Finally making throws from 90 feet. And we should see Severino back before the playoffs, hopefully in time to stretch him out. I don't think the Yankees necessarily need two pitchers like some fans are saying. I'm perfectly content with a 4-man playoff rotation of Severino, [trade], Paxton, Tanaka. CC can take the long-relief / mop-up role, German might be nasty in the pen. Happ can go fvck off somewhere else. 2009 yankees actually just went with a 3-man rotation, with CC Burnett and Pettite. And even though Burnett and Pettite were hit or miss (probably worse than this year's squad), CC was a true and dominant ace. Every day I think about the fact that we got McCann and Beltran instead of Scherzer in free agency. Every day I stray further from God's grace.
  4. Someone on njdevs: *posts something complimentary towards Lou or PK Subban. SD:
  5. does your phone send you a push notification when someone compliments Lou?
  6. Great post CR. I used to frequent a Yankees forum and I just can't any more. Seems like everyone on that forum was a WFAN-type caller; believing -- like you said -- that the rest of baseball is ready and willing to spread their cheeks for Cashman simply because "we're the Yankees." I think Cashman gets (and deserves) a ton of flack for his inability to acquire top-of-the-rotation pitchers via trade. If you look at the Yankees history of acquiring pitchers at the deadline it's got some wildly underwhelming results. There was the prospect-hugging that hurt (decided against Cliff Lee because they didn't want to trade Andrew Brackman), there was the 'meh, who cares' moves (JA 'it's pronounced Jay' Happ and Lance Lynn.) And when he did pull the trigger on getting rid of a few prospects, like the case with Sonny Gray, it was just something that didn't work. (Editor's note: we've also gotten lucky. Yankees offered Dellin Betances, Gary Sanchez, and Luis Severino to the Phillies for Cole Hamels. Phillies wanted Banuelos instead, and the Yankees said no. So... phew.) Regardless, it's scary times in Yankee land. Best record in baseball? Yep. But we don't have a single starter with an ERA below 5. Zero. Zilch. Guys like Tanaka are either spectacular (to the tune of CGSO spectacular) or absolutely miserable (in 2 starts against the red sox, he has a combined 1.1 IP and 13ER). Guys like Paxton can't get out of the first inning (10.74 ERA) , and you're spending 3 hours watching the team try to climb back from a 4-0 hole. I'll go on the record saying that if the Yankees don't acquire a Syndergaard or Bauer type ~#2 pitcher, this is going to be a very bitter and short offseason.
  7. .@Joelsherman1 suggests the #Mets are hesitant to deal Syndergaard or Diaz to teams like the #Yankees or #Astros because they're more advanced analytically, and they could "flourish" for those teams. i mean jesus christ

  9. Ok, I'm back with another trade proposal: Yankees send: Clint Frazier, Johnathan Loisiga (#2 pitching prospect), Jacoby Ellsbury (1 year left at 21 million) Mets Send: Noah Syndegaard, Robinson Cano (4 years left at 24 million per year).
  10. For the record, I've given Zacha +4 and I've spread the other 3 votes around. Mfitz has given Zacha -7 and has not downvoted anyone else. So, like, you're being way meaner man.

  12. I know everyone has wildly different styles but there is no way that jacket isn't the ugliest thing I've ever seen in my entire fvcking life.
  13. That didn’t happen. He was booed when he took a shootout attempt the year they missed the playoffs and he didn’t even get a shot off; which culminated an absolutely abhorrent start to the season for himself and for the team. He was adored and cheered for the entirety of the next season.
  14. I think it's because people see one guy downvoting Zacha every single day without fail, and probably think that it's a little silly when guys like Andy Greene, Kevin Rooney, and Connor Carrick are still alive. And also because of a board-wide, crippling hatred of mfitz.
  15. If you didn't see the Yankees game last night, watch the highlights. That was the best regular season game I've seen in my entire life, and that isn't hyperbole. Yankees down 8-2. Thanks to 3 in the 5th and 5 (!!!) in the 8th, the Yankees take a 9-8 lead. In the bottom of the 8th, just as I stopped celebrating, Sano hits a Britton pitch +/- 9 thousand feet. 10-9 twins. Top of the 9th. 2 out. Nobody on. 0-2 count to Tauchman; who battles back and draws a walk. Next batter, Aaron Hicks does this. Chapman comes in with an 12-11 lead. And he can't. Throw. A. Single. Strike. He WALKS THE BASES LOADED in like 15 pitches. Twins tie the game on a sac-fly, and get BABIPed to death to end the inning. 12-12 to extras. Yankees score two in the top of the 10th. 14-12, damn, maybe we got this. After a quick couple outs, OTTAVINO fvckING LOADS THE BASES. Chad Green comes in to face max kepler. Kepler absolutely ropes a ball into the gap. I mean, the thing was absolutely smoked. Even does a little bat-flip, because that's game, blouses. And Aaron Hicks does fvcking this. I barely slept from the adrenaline.

    I just can't understand what you're referencing. It feels like players leaving the Devils is way more random than "players who weren't cultivated here." I just don't think that's a point you should use to bolster your argument.

    I'm fine moving Vatanen if we get another free agent defenseman, but I'm not as down on him as most are. He was pretty clearly the best defenseman on the team in 2017/2018, and he dealt with some injuries and had a tough season last year. I also don't know why it's assumed he'll be "asking for a ton of money" and I'm not quite sure why you think he "doesn't like being in NJ"... that seems like conjecture at best, and pull-out-of-your-assery at worst. I don't think his trade value is so high right now that he'd be worth anything to write home about. Maybe a second round pick? I'd rather take my chances that he bounces back, plays point on the second PP unit, and we can cross that rental discussion either next offseason or if we're out of a playoff spot come trade deadline.

    It only took seven months of mfitz hating Pavel Zacha more than he deserved to get Triumph out of hiding. Stick around tri. EDIT: and I'm surprised even mfitz can't see the value Zacha brings as a defensive forward, especially on the penalty kill. Since when is the mark of a good penalty killer how many goals he has? That's like saying "Eh, Brodeur had a great season but he really didn't put up that many points." Is he worth the 6th overall pick? Eh, probably not, but I also think in general people seem to expect more out of top-10 but not top-3 picks. Of course I'd rather Rantanen, Provorov, Werenski etc etc etc, but it didn't happen. If you just judge the player himself, he's providing positive value at only 22 years old. He will get better.

    The LTIR loophole makes me wonder why the fvck teams don’t abuse it more often? Instead of all the major cap penalties to the Canucks, can’t luongo just... say ouchie?

    Ironically enough I was just thinking that, and the answer is hell yeah I would. But Zacha wouldn't take it. On the question of state income tax, it makes a major difference. I work and live in Florida. My first paycheck made me call my HR person because I was certain they'd got something wrong.

    Even if he turns out to be a bust, it's still a steal. The low AAV and long contract value makes that thing easy as hell to buy-out.
