Was not looking pretty till tanaka signed.

Are the mets gonna sign Drew already?

The only Almonte I know of in our organization is an outfielder.

What about Pineda? Isn't he supposedly ready to go?

He'll be ready the same time McIlrath is 2018

Unless he suffers a setback he'll be right to go.

No idea who this Almonte guy is.

Pineda will be the #5 to start the season but he can quickly move into the 3 slot if he can get back to the level he was at with the Mariners. Maybe even a #2 depending on how Kuroda and CC do.

As a ranger fan, you should know better.

Nash was the prize commodity till the Rangers landed him. Then he is overpaid and on the downhill.

25 NHL fan bases were drooling over the possibility of signing Lundqvist, now he isnt worth it and he isnt elite.

Any player coming to New York is going to get crapped on, because everyone wants to hate on this city. Hell, Eli Manning as two superbowl MVPs and everyone outside New York claims they wouldnt even take him as a backup.

To me, Pineda is the bigger wildcard than Tanaka. If Pineda can get into the top-3 rotation, which his talent says he can, that is a pretty deadly starting rotation. You basically have a decent #1 followed by four guys who can be #2s on a lot of teams in this league.

If Pineda can pitch, Phelps will be in the pen.

Oops, I meant to say Vidal Nuno.

As for Pineda, he's still in the farm, as a project.

I prefer Phelps in the bullpen. He's extremely versatile and will be a good asset out there.

Pineda IMO is going to win the spot outright in ST as long as he's healthy, which he finished all his rehab games healthy.

He's not a project. he is a 25 y/o MLB pitcher who is rebounding form a bad run of injuries. If he is healthy, he is a starter.

I'd rather trade him and A-Rod to the Mets for pitching prospects; after all, bad apples that stick together rot together.

Besides, how many seasons Pineda had pitched since 2011? Zero, which is the number of rings both Mattlingly and Ewing have.

The Mets aren't that stupid. The Marlins on the other hand...

Garza signed with Milwaukee for 4/52

Thats $100M less for a guy that has thrown MLB pitches, for those scoring at home.

And a guy that has nowhere near the upside, for those scoring at home.

I hope the Yankees make a package, especially when Jeffrey Loria is into rebuilding a lot.

To Yankees:

Nathan Eovaldi
Scott McGough
Giancarlo Stanton
Future Considerations (Draft Picks/cash/player to be named later)

To Marlins:

A-Rod
Michael Pineda

I still can't believe they paid 25 million dollars per for a guy that can only be evaluated based on scouting reports.

Rather have Michael Young. I'm not sold on Drew. Unless the yanks are looking at him as Jeter's replacement when he retires.
