I hate that stupid angle so much. I would only like it if they used it on replays on a breaking ball.

My god.

I am praying to the baseball gods for no serious injuries. That right there will have people debating if us or the Nats have the best rotation in the NL for the next decade.
Seeing this list just makes me happy. Now we just gotta work on the hitting.

I'd love to know Pettitte's career record and ERA after a loss.

My Yankees are irrelevant lol. If they keep this up, they are heading towards the dark era of late 80's

Logan threw so much last year, it may have been smart to see if you could have gotten something of value for him during the off season, but now we need him with Rapada released.

Everyone talks about the lineup but they've gotten enough runs to win. The Yankees bullpen has been a bad joke.

Let the AL get their April laughs in like they always do. Yankees still have the best starting pitching in that division when all is said and done.

Yeah the rotation will heat up and I think the lineup will surprise people with how many runs it will be able to put up. But that bullpen worries me.

Kid is a ****ing stud. Combine him with Niese, Wheeler later in the season and Syndergaard in the future... damn.

Here's an interesting talking point.

Do we keep Buck around to tutor TDA when he gets called up? If he's still hitting even slightly like he's hitting now can we get a decent OF prospect? His name is Buck, is he really here to party?



Never thought it'd end up like this, but unless he starts being absolutely terrible in the next 2-3 weeks John Buck will be a very interesting Met this season.

Unless we find ourselves in contention for a Wild Card, I think you gotta move Buck. If he continues to post great numbers, or even just good numbers, that's a potentially valuable commodity. Not a ton of catchers with pop. He's UFA after the season (I believe) and not the future. If you can get a B prospect for him I think you jump on it.

I don't think there's any chance he keeps up this pace. So assuming he comes back to Earth, his value will be minimal. Rather hold on to him and let him mentor dArnaud.

2010 with Toronto he had 20 HR and a .489 SLG. He's always had great power. If you get one of those fluky seasons where everything is going right for the guy, he could find himself with an OPS over .800 come the deadline.

While he "calls a good game" (the most over-valued trait of any player at any position), he's pretty ****** defensively. I don't know that he's the guy you necessarily want tutoring d'Arnaud.

Mets fleeced Toronto badly. Real bad.

Syndergaard and D'Arnaud future franchise perennial-all stars. Dickey back in AL form like he was in Texas/Minnesota away from pounding on weak NL.

Dickey's had TWO starts. Two. Cole Hamels got absolutely **** on a few days ago, too. Is he awful? We're 6ish games into the new season, small sample sizes need to be the disclaimer for everything. Syndegaard had an alright start in the minors yesterday (or two days ago.) Hard to say anything was a fleece yet.

Also, I agree with 2k2 that calling a game is one of those things people say about catchers who are otherwise meh. However, I look at it more as not forcing TDA to step in and rake. If he has a good backup in Buck, who can (and really should) split starts with him as d'Arnaud breaks into the league, is that better than being forced into the fire knowing that if you struggle as the main workhorse you have to keep shouldering the load?

Yeah, it's ridiculous to call anything a fleecing right now. d'Arnaud could end up busting and Syndergaard could blow out his elbow, while Dickey finds him form and wins a Cy Young and WS in Toronto. Who the hell knows at this point. Consider who it's coming from though, LOL.

Synder's start was pretty. 4 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. He's still stretching out after the "side injury" he had in camp.

If we're out of it by the deadline I don't think it would matter. d'Arnaud can split time with Recker and work on his game with wins or losses meaning nothing (as usual). If the kid is producing at AAA, throw him into the fire. He's going to have to sink or swim eventually.

Toronto overpaid for a retirement home attendee with only 2 good seasons under his belt. They gave up two top 10 prospects (IMO) to acquire him. Those types of assets should be excluded for pitchers that are controllable and in their prime years.
