headlines out there right they get um they get kana they get rosario and then of course they get the the big one at the end of the day is of course starla marte and of course yeah this is not nym news this is ny news so at the end of the day we're gonna you we're gonna talk about our yankees and look first and foremost i'll just say this not a significant impact on the yankees i get it because you know we still have things we can do but man friends i tell you man i am utterly in a way shocked by a lot of the reaction from yankee fans oh you came to marty the people the people like defending how bad of a signing all of a sudden marty would have been who would have given that money and this and that he got four years about 19 million a year yeah he got under 20 million a season yep not even 20. for for the next four seasons i laughed about this on the live chat i don't want to keep laughing again do you know that there was yankee fans that actually said that aaron hicks is better it's a better point there's of going out there and getting them you have you have yankee people out there posting videos of aaron hicks making sliding catches in center field and dominic and winley when he looked like trash doing it he looked terrible he looked terrible tell you guys right now he took a horrible route to that ball horrible um and ninety percent of it ninety percent of the the route was the the fact that he was moving ridiculously slow but you know who he looks like you wanna laugh i'm not joking you remember when bernie williams came back to play into wbc oh god and everybody looked at it was like bernie you can't do this fam they're like bernie no bernie we don't want to see you like a man who didn't belong in that field and you could tell i mean people say oh well you know you know maybe out of shape that's why he's out there he's trying to get back listen listen guys what was he doing make all the excuses you want i'm not i'm not here this is not about bashing aaron hicks right this is not about bashing aaron hicks this is about bashing the idiot fans who were in my mentions telling me that aaron hicks is equivalent to starling marte so we don't have to spend on a starling marte because we already have him basically what where who and where does aaron hicks match like the speed did you see what he looked like catching that ball you know come on bro mind you i'm actually sitting here saying if aaron hicks is on center field okay but just have a good backup phone i'm i'm on record saying that so i'm not somebody who's like i hate aaron hicks i would trade him if i could mine 100 i'm just cracking up truly that fans are actually even uttering the words that marty isn't a better and then they're talking about his age do you see the way this dude is built no some of them that's what i'm saying that i had people in my mentions telling me oh yeah a 33 year old center fielder is not the answer is it what was it was a 32 year old uh utility infielder the answer last year because we gave him six years and signed him dj the mayhew and we were all very happy that we resigned the mayhew we were all very happy that uncle stevie didn't swoop in and steal the mayhew so don't tell me a year later you're saying nah we don't need and it's a shorter deal and you guys are talking all this garbage and [ __ ] about the marte deal you know marta deal martay's deal ends a year earlier than le mayhew does yeah we're paying we're paying the mayhew a year and him and lemay who are the same age and we're paying dj a year later then the mets are going to be paying starling marta the deal is a good freaking deal the deal's a good freaking deal it's an economical deal for him he's making he's getting paid he's getting good money but it doesn't that's not a back breaker contract for a team not in new york for the yankees not a new you're the problem what what organization are we that's the only issue here we've become the kansas city yankees according to the fans they're talking about oh no we can't spend that kind of we can't afford that what and i'm a circle i'm a circle back to marte but the other thing i want to say make no mistake about this because i feel like some people got it confused somewhere i saw it in the mentions on on my tweet i saw it in the mentions on your tweet because we both had a similar tweets that kind of blew up and some people don't seem to get it they think that we're we're upset about all of the moves that the mets made no and we feel like and we and we're like oh no we wanted all of those guys and the mets stole all of those guys no no no no no no no no no no they just want to stupid read into what we're saying we were speaking like i was speaking specifically about starling marty and so was pete mark canna i came out and said he i think he was a great signing for the meds i think all the signings were good for the mets all of them were good for the match all of them were looking escobar listen escobar canna two great signings for the men's if the yankees would have signed either canna or escobar i would have been like what are we doing like i don't i don't get it like right escobar it's like we already got dj and i like dj better i think he's a better version of that are we trading geo then he's taken over exactly i would have been like what's happening here because that score play escobar plays second and third you know he's a i'm like yeah he's a good clubhouse guy but i'm like yeah is that what like i would have been confused if the yankees weren't assigned to i agree so no i wasn't i didn't feel any kind of way that the mets got him other than happy for the mets fans i was like that's a good pick up congrats mark canna same thing oh yeah we do need that we do need outfield but ken is not the kind of outfielder that we need so when they signed him i was like oh i see what they're doing i was like that's good for them because they need that they need that and they're gonna need that so i was like okay yeah ken a great pickup had a decent year in oakland and i mean the way he hits over there is kind you got to kind of take with a grain of salt because he hit it he did it in such a shitty ballpark that it's like put him in a put him in a ballpark that plays even half a little bit more friendly to hitters and he's probably going to put up a lot better numbers so i think again can a good deal shouts out to the mess for those two very good deal for the mets what we were talking about though was only starling martin it was only him he was the only player that the mets and the yankees together were going after along with a slew of other teams the phillies were in our hearts the marlins the marlins made a big push for martay which now i mean side sidebar or whatever but now you know now they're saying that they shifted after losing out on marta they shifted to castellanos that's going to be interesting because there's a lot of teams that want that want nikki stixx and if the marlins come in and swoop him up guess whose market improves even better which is what boris has been saying all along comforto he starts to look way way more attractive with marty and nikki sticks off the ball you said he's gonna get money he's gonna get it yeah because i and the reason i predicted it to my whole basis behind that was boris is gonna tell him don't don't get scared we're gonna have to be patient and you're gonna have to watch some guys get signed ahead of you but i'm gonna get you the money but don't don't get finicky don't get afraid because you're gonna see some guys go and you're gonna start thinking but dang is there gonna be a place for me is it gonna pace for you and there's definitely gonna be a place for you just be patient and i'm it's looking like it's gonna pay off starling got a great deal nikki stixx is gonna probably get a decent deal because the marlins apparently the marlins apparently were willing to go pretty close to what marta got from the mets yep right yep so i mean i would imagine they'll go just they went right up there they were close they were close they were close right yeah that's what was that that was that was that was what was being reported today if i'm if i'm not mistaken now so i i would imagine that for castellanos they're gonna go about the same they're gonna go about the same um length if not a little more costianas is 29 so he's younger you could give him more years if that's what he's looking for give him the money and miami has they got the paper why not and you guys they going come on you're more willing to go more years if you have to exactly because you can give them an off day in the in the outfield and have them you know dh for you a little bit split time over there so if he does end up going to the marlins who some people had them in the outfield market but not a lot of the top insiders had the marlins going and making a splash in the outfield market like i'm like a marte or a castellanos when a team like that does something like that it really shifts the market and that's why boris has been saying he's like no no he's like uh comforto conforto is going to cost and that's why he said i don't think he's going to go back to the mets and maybe that's why the mets went and ponied up what they did for marty because when you see what conforto gets you're probably going to be like wow marte was a steal which is what we've been saying yeah we said we said the deal for starling martin once we saw it it's a seal great deal it's a great and again it's funny because my my whole my whole beef is like you said before i don't care about khan i don't care about escobar my thing is what yankee fans were saying after the fact because look my job isn't to put nobody on blast i'm not looking to do that but a lot of the cats that were saying oh the yankees wouldn't have matched that off or the same one saying they wanted to offer them those type of deals they would have seen people saying oh we wanted this guy that's the thing that bothers me about yankee and look this is a yankee podcast so it's kind of funny you're saying that but we keep it real that's exactly what it is my whole thing is though why do a lot of you cats feel like every other player that could be our team we got guys better than we don't i gotta come to you right now and say we don't we don't no we're not in that position the cat's saying oh there's yankee fans out there panicking now look at my tweet what did i say in my tweet not that they're panicking about getting a big name i said they have too many moves to not be aggressive i said it in my live chat the yankees have what aaron boone called giancarlo stand a unicorn remember because he he's magical when he's got everything going he's magical i said the same thing about the yankees off season right they got prospect capital and they got money to spend there is no excuse that the yankees come now what where a few days away from december 1st haven't made anything of significance not nothing at all nothing to tip a hand nothing to even tell the fan base yeah we are taking a different route what do they do release clint frazier okay he wasn't gonna they dear fade a couple guys bam the biggest move is tylawade to be honest the biggest move of the yankees off season so far has been tyler wade it's the one that made you say oh wow that was kind of surprising it was like whoa that's interesting they left squid they let squid and tyler wade go to the angels dia fade clint he's gonna be out there and then they'll probably throw this there's probably going to be something you're going to see some people probably react when they non-tender a guy or two now in a couple days because the nonsense the deadline's coming up they're probably in a long time they're probably going to non-tender a guy or two a lot of people a lot of people are predicting and i mean you i mean i feel like you know you've been saying that for a little while some people i've been hearing it for a while like people predicting and probably gets the non-tender um so yeah that'll be something but it's still not it's not what uh it's it's not what the mets have done it's not it's definitely not what detroit has done so far blue jays may add gauzeman yeah i mean it's looking like it could come down to the jays the mets i was told this morning i said it in the chat i also said it on the live that um the people that one of the guys i couldn't cooperate with anybody else said one of the guys that gave me actually to know with syndergaard stuff he said flat out he would he's expecting it to be done either today or tomorrow that he's going to the mets so because they made a very hard push to get them so i mean that might be even but even if he doesn't go to the mess he goes to the blue jays that's basically the blue jays saying we're not bringing ray back and yeah that's open to another club but again that's the blue jays now still getting better and then on top of that that's the robbie ray now does he go to the yankees so here's my thing about the yankee off season i'll see if you agree with me and and this is what this tweet basically meant so to all the fans out there that's oh you guys are panicking no nobody's panicking yeah it's not i i i said this i said this earlier and i'll say it again you could beat a lioness and you could wait to to jump and and make your move and catch your prey you can weigh back but you do that for the big meal of the day you do that for the big fish you don't need to do that for positions like catcher you don't need to do that for a backup outfielder you don't need to do that for jonathan vr you don't need to do that for a starting pitcher you can do that for your robbie ray you can do that for your seaguar or one of your top shortstops you can do that you can wait because look let's be realistic you want to be optimistic let's be optimistic there's four short stops out there that are not signed and it's this almost december 1st lockdown is coming we don't know if that's signed before or after but there's four guys that are available that need to play somewhere next year we know detroit would be interested we know texas that they're probably gonna get one one of each that can still leave you with two who whoever those names are whatever the mariners go out there and they get uh adam frazier hello and take some and take some right out of the of the talk maybe they put that money elsewhere you know what i mean now you got to look out for them somewhere else my thing is eventually eventually with the waiting game one of those players may crawl to the yanks i'd say look you know my guy does want to win he got this offer out there we may take a little less to come here yeah and that's what cashman probably is waiting for my thing is though that's not the only move that this team needs to make they need significant change trust me in my comment section today on my on my live chat which is this is obviously going to be tomorrow but saturday morning saturday afternoon everybody agreed i'm telling everybody agreed gary sanchez cannot be your catcher if you're a serious team you can't have gary sanchez behind the plate again can't do it can't do it then up not if you're the not if you're the yankees you're up the middle cannot be gary sanchez gleber aaron hicks and then whoever your new shortstop is you can't do it's not a winning formula you're not looking to win we've been saying this we've been saying this we've been saying this for we've been saying this for months guys been saying now for a couple weeks right i mean in our group chat and then i guess whenever whenever we you know record do episodes or whatever i feel like you know the yankees are a lot of the stuff that's coming out that they're putting out you know through their you know yes network people and beat writers and all that [ __ ] it's all it's all financial posturing right i don't put too much stock in anything that's been said so far right it's been said by guys like passin and rosenthal that they expect that they're like know the yankees are gonna give out one of those 300 million dollar contracts to either correa or seeger or one of those guys but then it's also been said by lower level guys like your shermans and whoever like no you know word on the street is that they're not gonna be giving out a 300 million dollar contract um a lot of people are saying that they can see them going with a stop gap and things like personally is francis putting in stock in either camp right now no why because i feel like nobody knows what they're doing because that's how cashman operates and you know what that's not necessarily a bad thing because when you're the yankees if you show your hand you're screwed right like if you show like listen this is our guy and if we don't get him like our entire offseason hinges on him then you're gonna have to overpay and you're gonna get beat over the head with the price so if you if you remain ambiguous it's probably better for you right which makes sense that if they are going to sign a 300 million dollar play a contract then they also put out that they're not signing it so that it's not as out there or if they are going to a stop gap it's better that they also put out that they maybe might dip in the water 300 million because you don't want to show your hand but all that all that being said the paris that that's speaking about like the big fish that's not speaking about the peripheral moves and we're talking about moves like catcher center field like things like that you know what i'm saying starting pitching is always a priority it's always a focus but i mean this off season right like it's something that has to be like you know at really at the forefront after you make one of these big moves i listened to boone on r2c2 the other day god bless you he sounded like it was it was an intro it was an interesting interview but i'll say towards the end when they started talking about like free agency and things like that or whatever he didn't give up anything so if you guys are going to go look into that to get info you're not going to find much but what he did say was that you know they're working and they're they have a couple targets they're talking about different guys every day and he said like he feels like you know right now they're in a position where they're just waiting for a big domino to fall and that once that domino falls you're going to see a bunch of subsequent moves that follow that right after i heard that i said okay let me do a little research here before i speak out of turn i want to look i looked at the 40-man roster which is currently exactly at 44. it's perfect perfectly at 40. and i went and i looked at it let me tell you what i gathered from looking at that roster this roster is not a roster that is built for opening day so clearly clearly the yankees are planning on making several moves so i'm not i'm not going to sit here and say like oh my god the yankees aren't doing anything they're not going to do nothing or whatever no no one thing for sure they're going to do something they're going to do something because the way the 40 man is right now this is not a 40 man that's going to be playing in april there's obviously going to be moves we don't have we don't have a short stop we don't have like like your first baseman is right now it's technically getting it's like there's a lot of you know i mean it's like no so clearly things are gonna happen but what we're saying is right now there's a mad dash to get some of these guys locked into deals right and some of these guys are signing for maybe less than what they're gonna be signing for on the other side of the lockout because on the other side of the lockout we could be looking at a luxury tax threshold that is way higher than just 210 right yeah we can be we can be looking at teams who are desperate yeah because a lot of people are saying oh but the players are going to be desperate to sign too the players are going to point that right back at the teams they're going to be like oh yeah i'm desperate to play for a team but you're desperate to sign somebody also right like it's not gonna it's not gonna be like oh well the players are the only ones desperate they have the owners always carry themselves with this air that like they run everything and everything what we've begun to begun to see the last couple of years with deals like tatis with deals like lindor with extensions like mookie bets trout uh all these guys soto's impending extension wander franco after you know freaking short rookie camp just got extended 12 years what we're starting to see is it's not about you owners anymore the players have power they have power and if they come out on the other side of the cba walking around with the big stick you're going to have to pay these guys what they want and that's it and and that's that's my whole thing so it's like there's there's a there's a way that this waiting game backfires that's all i'm saying right i understand the waiting game and you just said it too you understand it makes sense everybody knows that we we understand what cashman is doing this is not a method that um how you say like this is not a method that like is a you know it's a crazy method it's not proven or whatever this is a proven method in business right you wait guys out you wait them out wait you wait guys out wait for the market to be not a george thing you know it's not something that george would have done because you know he said the market and he also had an ego so you know he wanted to fill his own ego up so exactly what george washington worked no he wouldn't he would oh man there would have been moves today exactly yeah what what's what uh cohen did today well uncle steve did today yesterday george would have made a move you know just because he knew the mets were going to get a headline so you probably would have seen seeger as a yankee today yeah it would have just a secret or robbie reyes somebody he would have they would an agent would have got a call it would have been george they would have been jumping up and down because they knew what's up already and he got a monster deal yeah you know and and that's the way it works so nobody's saying that you know that's the way this yankee team literally has to run to organization no because you shouldn't be reactionary towards the mets of all things but at the end of the day there's a lot of like you said the 40 man ross i even i was just even browsing it just now it's not built for a club that is ready to play major league baseball so you know there's gonna be changes yeah my thing out there that i say is concerning is like you just said you don't know when the cba is gonna gonna be agreed to you don't know what month is it going to be february a month before spring training i mean if that's the case team players are going to be well i want to sign i want to go i want to do this i want to do that then you got to hope that any trade you started to talk about is is held up or you don't know how teams finances are going to change you don't know if their mindset's going to change or how they want to look at their business maybe look towards next year or whatever that's going to be you also don't know what other players may become available you don't know there's this is a very weird house because i do believe when moves are made they're going to be all grouped together because teams are going to be you know not necessarily reactionary but with a time frame that is limited to say this boom boom boom boom then you're gonna see one after the other my whole thing at the end of the day and i've kept to this is the changes that must happen need to happen this all season you can't finish this offseason and come to the yankees and say we got seeger and we got um uh uh uh jonathan vr because we think he's gonna help on the bench that's not an off season even though even if you had john great we also signed john gray that's not it i'm sorry sorry that is not it not just off season there's too many holes there's too many holes and that's my whole thing it's like look and it's not like you don't have plugs to fill it that's it exactly there's too many holes and but there's so many options for the holes right now like right now on this half of free agency what my whole thing is on the second half of free agency we don't know what is going to be there you don't know what is going to be there you don't know what kind of negotiations are going to be had you don't know what the conversations are gonna look or feel like and there's gonna be a lot of stuff going on again again the yankees could be operating under under the thought that we actually do know what the second half of free agency is gonna look like because maybe they have information that we're not privy to as fans i always put this out there as a disclaimer they operate at a much higher level than we do so they might have information about how the cba negotiations are actually going to go and they might know that okay it's not really going to go into february it's probably going to go into maybe mid-january or something like that right and we'll have time also you know we already hear the the rumblings of like the luxury tax threshold going up we already know that this is going to happen that's going gonna happen so like they might be playing with house money they might know things that are coming but us as fans we don't of course and that's why we're gonna react the way that we're reacting because especially when you see teams moving with a sense of purpose because that that just shows you that regardless of what the thank you the yankees think there are other teams who think nah i need to get stuff done right now because we don't know what the second half is going to look like and you have plenty you have plenty of like uh teams that have proven that the padres dealing frasier on this side of uh you know the the lockout you know i'm saying that that's that speaks volumes now i put out a tweet today i was like i was like you don't know if they dealt frazier because they wanted to open space for cj abrams to come up right and maybe and maybe shift over to second base maybe a free agent or or maybe now they want to dip their maybe they want to dip their sales into freaking the the simian market or the buyers market yeah if they if they start having conversations with buyers buyers is that that whole thing is going to be all over the place now because right now you have a lot of people saying look bias is looking like that's the tigers priority and like they're gonna like make it work according to reports today buys on the mets are off in terms of like the money figure yeah so which you know i could see some met fans being like oh like what the hell like you know we're spending money like whatever why are you gonna like be cheap on the bias deal when we just spend all this other money but you guys got to remember he they extended lindor 341 million dollar like that's a lot of money they just spent 120 something yesterday like they're spending money you can't be upset they're like they're not spending they're spending they're spending money the thing is that if bias is pricing them out meaning that the tigers are pricing them out of bias because they don't want to price up to like korea yep and the mets might have to take the l there because it is what it is and biases market is is really robust right now you got the tigers you got the mess the red socks are in on him there's a lot of teams if the team like the padres gets in on that too who knows now with simeon it's like a toss-up i mean who knows because i seattle was a team that was like i felt like they're a really good fit he's from like up there area whatever and they they got adam frazier now so it's like hey simeon very nice very nice deal that was a really really good deal does that make does that open the track for him to come back to toronto a little bit easier or is toronto looking for other things like you know right now they're focused on pitching but you see them looking at a lot of guys who are not named robbie ray which would lead you to think they feel like they're going to be priced out of robbie ray which is something i tweeted weeks ago and a bunch of you were saying like oh no that's not the case they're just checking in because you know maybe whatever i said this i said this when we started to see what verlander's market was looking like remember you did you did i was saying i was like he's gonna get i thought he was gonna get two years 40. he ended up getting 50. which i thought was crazy i said he's going to get at least like two years 40. he got 50. cindergard got what 21. cinderella is 25. wasn't it 25 so cinegar is 25 for the one year right mats four years 44 million yeah water eduardo rodriguez 77 they're going to get hey golfman's look at the players too that got the players involved and going after goldsmith you got the mets you got the i think the mariners are interested you got the blue jays you've got teams of money kevin gosse the giants are still there probably with them yeah so you got kevin goffman's gonna go out there and get himself a paycheck and you know who's looking at oh no he's looking at that robbie ray's happy robbery could wait he could wait all day so just wait chill chill they're the ones that can be patient we need we need we need a cowboy in the bronx though we need a cowboy in the bronx we need robbie right in the bronx i'm sick of talking about this you know what i mean i'm almost sick of talking about we need a cowboy and a bronze my man had that cowboy hat and i said man that's it it's like the movie city slickers it's like the movie city slickers man that's what we need we get them a cowboy hat with a yankee logo around the front listen and i think i think that that's one of the things that actually has shown me like my optimism early on in the offseason wasn't necessarily unfounded like maybe we do have reasons to be optimistic because when you listen to the guys who have been in the players who have been in on some of these guys available right sometimes you hear the yankees but sometimes you don't and it makes people wonder like well you know stephen metz pretty solid pitcher did okay in toronto pitched really well against the yankees why weren't the yankees in that market why weren't the yankees in eduardo rodriguez's market these are guys who came to the bronx pushed against us and shut us down several times throughout the year why weren't they in those markets gossman has tons of people right now in his market haven't heard anything about the yankees talking to yanks nope some people are saying some people are saying oh well because they're gonna like you know they're looking to trade for a picture or they're looking to get like a really low level thing or whatever could be that or it could be that they're like yeah let all of these guys go and snatch up your thor's your stephen mats your eduardo rodriguez your kevin gossman's your john gray's your max scherzers and then let's see what happens with ray at the end right right and let's see what happens with ray at the end we know we're gonna if because because you said it that's cashman's guy he's wanted him for years yeah for all you know they have a bulletin board in yankee stadium right now with robbie ray as one of the center pieces and they're like he's our freaking guy we gotta get him yeah but they're trying to play it like let's see look we know we're gonna have to pay him but let's figure out exactly how much we're gonna have to pay him let's see what it's gonna be right we don't know yet but again that's the whole thing it's like waiting that waiting game you got to be careful because you never know they have the power robbie ray sits down and watches greg gets signed gossman gets signed all these guys and he's not in a rush he knows he's going to get paid yeah correa knows you never know buyers goes to detroit correa knows he's going to get paid well that too and you know the longer you wait too you got to remember one thing players also see other teams getting better and they may enjoy that fit more so you know robbie ray sees the jays doing all this and who the hell knows what the js are up to you know like you said the cba goes up and jays go look man you know what we may not be able to do the one the 165 170 or whatever the hell kind of deal you get to something whatever hella will be but you know maybe maybe we can make something work maybe we give you more years maybe it takes that aav down a little bit well not not one something excuse me you guys know what i mean yeah but um for a guy like robbie ray i mean i i've said the reason why i just think it makes too much sense for the yankees is just because the strikeout numbers that's never going to change he's not going to not strike guys out will a zra go up i predicted it goes about a run and i believe that i think his era goes up to the mid threes maybe even high threes but it's worth it it's still worth it it's still worth it because i guess you gotta have guys that strike guys out in the postseason and the names alone back to back with scare teams the names alone are righty lefty that would probably be one and two in baseball on strikeouts if they're healthy all year yeah you have that on your club you notice what you're facing that's terrifying that's terrifying that's like shilling and johnson that's just johnson type [ __ ] it's rough it's rough and i could see i could see cashman saying like look we that's one of the priorities like we need to do that i could see that 100 i mean kevin kernan thinks so kevin kerner thinks that's his guy yeah he thinks that he tried too many times to get him not to get him now because of money yeah i feel like i feel like that's one of the things that like it would surprise a lot of people um but it wouldn't surprise me i i and i'd be i tell people like i would be way more shocked if they ended up with correa than i would be if they signed robbie ray i i would like i feel like shocked at correa also i feel like robbie ray i feel like robbie ray is like cashman has been like public about like his pursuit of him like not because he wanted to be public but like it just it's become public he's been after this guy for years now well it wasn't so close all it takes is one year he had a start in arizona and they literally asked them about it he was like the worst thing for me is going to be shaving my beard yeah like they asked him that if you go to new york you know what is it going to you say god i love it but the worst thing about me is shaving my beard like other than that and he always been you know but just a stubble you can't even have a lot of that showing so i mean you know shaving did like every other day he was like that would be the annoying part but other than that i mean every like i said i i i mean he'll love it he's gonna everything i love it over here everything i've heard about robbie ray is literally everything this team needs they need a guy again that was like sabathia that was just look we got to do the dirty [ __ ] i'm there i'll throw behind it dude robbie ray's not he's not scared to do that no he's tough on the mountain oh by the way i actually learned something interesting about him a lot of it actually wasn't necessarily mechanics for him it was actually weight gain um isn't that interesting i didn't even know that apparently it balanced him out more by being heavier on the mound yeah yeah so he said that he said that and a little bit of slight mechanics actually is what led to him having much better control so that was interesting so um it was bulked up and that made him remember a more command driven picture you remember when cece lost all that weight and he had no command at all anymore terrible yeah yeah a lot of people a lot of people need need the weight to hold you down center you better david wells talked about that a long time ago that him pitching heavy was better for them that's just how it was yeah is that people these days people are getting used to seeing like these like tall slender or even buff pictures and they're like oh my god like that's what a picture looks like whatever when we were coming up a lot of pitchers had beer guts yeah of course just heavy heavier set guys or just heavier guys they were throwing but they were throwing cheese they were throwing cheese and they could control it right and i think a lot of times right now with these bulky guys that you see like even your thor's or your michael lorenzo's or whatever these guys are real muscular dudes or whatever but it's like they'll struggle with the wild everything they'll struggle getting wild a lot of stuff and they struggle to stay healthy because they're all over the place is what it is like they're all over the place and they're lifting weights and stuff like that whatever it's not good it's not yeah you guys know how i feel about the whole the weightlifting and [ __ ] like that with baseball i think i don't know how the hell it got into it but i feel like i think it's like as limited as possible if you can limit that as much as it's a lot of strength as much as you can muscles especially doing something like bass when you're swinging a bat you're throwing a ball you're a lot with the sides with your obliques with your with your hamstrings a lot it's a lot of work where you're putting no pressure and power by you know working on other stuff like that but um oh bro we lost your camera yeah yeah i'll get it i'll get it back on i got like a i got like a faulty um plug here it's annoying oh man it'll come back on give me one second don't worry we're experiencing technical difficulties give us two to three seconds we'll be back this is what happens when you do live stuff right there we go see we've got a green there we go let's go we're back but um no like i'm saying i mean robbie ray would just be a great fit he would be a great fit for the club he really would be and all it's going to cost is a little bit of money and you know um and that and and from there you know the one thing i wouldn't want to see is gary sanchez catching him i wouldn't want to see that that would be terrible and i mean i i i broke that down again today on the live i don't even want to really talk about it much because i don't want to take up much of our time doing it but after what you saw from gary sanchez last year the horrible place after you got what three-fifths of the rotation not one of the pitch to him towards the end of the year two years in a row of not pitching in a playoff game at the end of the day guys i mean that's my thing how is that your starting catcher you basically already said he's not no more and now you're going to keep this guy again for another year no it's the thing that people like are delusional about they tell you oh no but sanchez is sanchez sanchez doesn't play the big games your ace doesn't want to pitch to him if you sign another frontline starter that starter's not going to want to push this copyright shouldn't pitch to him he got he got to throw sliders in the dirt why would you want robbie ray throwing no if if cole can't throw to sanchez robbie ray has no business even even looking at gary no no way no it's like so you're talking about games one and two of a potential playoff series going to higgy yeah like and some fans are okay with that i don't i'm not no i'm not i'm not anymore not at all like i was okay with it when it was just cold catching all right because boone's not gonna do [ __ ] about it so yeah that's how it is yeah but my whole thing too is you know if if you look at if you look at gary sanchez i saw somebody tweet this today there's a video or a picture of him working out everybody oh look to the people who called him fat and lazy gary sanchez could come in with a six-pack next year that doesn't mean he's going to improve his catching i mean that's not the thing you guys talk about stupid [ __ ] it's not even about the fat and lazy stuff but he does it every year he does it every year every year and by the way he shows up to spring training a lean mean hitting machine thank you he's got it in shape year after year and he's gotten worse sucks by may fam he's gotten worse defensively like i looked at the fan grafting matter of fact while we're here let me see if i can find this um hold on a second i gotta try to find it because i was laughing catchers by war okay because i saw somebody post this on fangrest and i'm like oh okay all right i get what people are doing because you know and then they were like oh it looked good because they just put it for american league and i said okay america like i said now let's look at all leagues let's look at national league and american league right and i was going to make a video about this but since we're here i'll talk about it right now why not all right in war in the american league so i'll be fair and do what everybody else did and and go by the american league first and league gary sanchez was ranked seventh overall mitch garver was ahead of him max stassi was ahead of him sean murphy salvador perez he has monte grandel and mike zunino who was number one in the american league those are the guys that were ahead of him he was seventh when it comes to just the american league now let's look at major league baseball because you know there's this whole idea that gary sanchez is just superior compared to everybody else offensively all right now gary sanchez ranks 19th in all of major league baseball and he's only thought he was i thought he was the best offensive catcher in the game he's also .1 points point one only ahead of danny jansen and francisco mejia two ahead of reese maguire okay point two he's also tied with manny pina okay john gomez a little above him elias diaz of colorado's above him carson kelly who is always injured is above him by point two dalton varshall who just moved to catching is above him by point five and then the list goes on and on to your best guys like your jacob stallings your salvador perez uh real muto and all those guys but then there's an interesting one defensive war bro i don't even want to see him no no you want to laugh you really want to laugh for a second oh man what is it 28 20 28 or 29 bro this is going by hold on hold on this ain't going by team this is by every catcher so when i first saw the list right i said what the [ __ ] is he i said i'm looking i'm looking all right hold on maybe i'm just missing let me look for the ny ny and a y and y and y nothing's popping up so i said hold on a second kyle hey kashioka's 19th i said wait there gotta be something wrong here ny i know why i said oh damn there's another page there's three pages all right it goes from one to thirty i said let me go let me move to the next page i said gary gotta be there he is 37th 37th oh my gosh 37th you know what that means when you're 37 guys let me explain that to you that means that teams have backup catchers who are better than gary sanchez defensively this is crazy bro like i mean our own backup catcher is better than gary sanchez defensively guys again i don't know how many times we're gonna have to say this we're sounding like a production like like a broken record here we can live without gary sanchez's offense i promise you we can live without his offense yes we can live without it no it's the 20 it's the 20 some odd home runs that he's going to spray in here and there whatever it's like if we if we keep joking again that one hot streak a year like that people people when he's back yeah yeah every every year he comes back listen i loved i i loved gary sanchez as much as as much as the next guy did but you know you got we got to move on it's about winning it's about winning gary sanchez as a catcher just doesn't seem like a winning move i'm sorry he's not i'm sorry if that hurts people's feelings or whatever but it's surrendering it's waving to white's leg it's waving the white flag if i'm look if i'm in those meetings with brian cashman i swear to god i wish i could be um i'll never be welcomed to him but that's okay but if i'm in those meetings and i'm sitting there i i look across the table to all the pro scouts probably actually yankees probably won't have that if i got all the analytical nerds around them and i'm just looking at all of them saying do we got to get cole on the phone do we got to get montgomery on the phone kluber's a free agent but you guys want to call him up real quick you want to call him to see what he thinks i'm i mean are we really kidding ourselves here to continue this guy to throw him back out and then and then you wonder why there's people like pizzamanetti of ny news who's talking about an obvious disconnect between a fan base and the ownership and the team because fans have known this [ __ ] for years and they keep running the same guy out there going guys it's gonna work this year this year this year every good team has a strong middle of the lineup middle of middle of the of the infield they're strong up the middle champions which means start starting pitching catcher second base shortstop center field francis the last time we won the world series um who was the who who do we have there in center field talk about catching okay well let's play a game that i love to play it makes me very sad but i love to play it look at the 2009 yankees world series lineup it's gonna make me very sad but let's do it let's do it this is a game guys this is a game this is a game that i love that i love to play it's fun because you probably could argue you got three out of the four guys are hall of famers yeah if not you know obviously and the last one is very very good was a very very good player okay so this is not the lineup in terms of order but this is how we lined up for game one wait hold on is this better be correct we have posada catching chair at first kanoa at second okay jeter short jeter a-rod at third like if you just stop right there that's it who's inside of who's in center field melky melky took center of that game damian was unless melkian okay but you typically would either be milky or damon tell milky or dean all right so that day so when you talk about strong up the middle that team was strong as hell up the middle ridiculously stronger than the next last time this team won a light a light matsuya dh that's the last time this team won a world series and they had the formula they had it all when you looked at that team you said there's a championship caliber team no and then uh pitching uh brunette pettit cece jabba aceves mariano who was a beast in the planet zamasu martay the melanson was with us that year i mean david roberts but you look at a lot of that look at the two guys and it's funny because you know i never really thought about this until this moment right now if you look at the 09 off season it's almost what the yankees had to do right now they added two strikeout pictures cece sebastian aj burnett they added the big first baseman which they obviously need now whether that's anthony rizzo or i don't know how to help the matt olson deal doesn't happen i really don't the the mariners just took themselves out of the picture likely we're trading for a few prospects um you know i think i think boston could still be a little scary with a move like that maybe maybe i don't think they have they don't have better prospects to offer than the could be but that that's the whole thing right there they they're farming they don't have better doesn't compete doesn't compete with unless they end up looking to trade one of those guys that were on the major league roster this [ __ ] that was really good uh which came up and pitched and yeah i still even see it better than what the yankees could offer no because then it would be money too the money too once they come up to the majors you know the money changes i don't think the rays are doing that i i don't know it doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like a race the brewers could the white sox maybe maybe but there's not there's not a lot of clubs out there that i'm looking at are looking to win now that are really going to be able to beat the yankees when it comes to getting a guy like matt olsen and that could take care of a lot of their moves right that could take care of first base and like i said i think if you make a deal with oakland i'm sorry you got to get a starting pitcher i mean make that deal bigger there's no point in just doing it if you're going to give up guys all right then let's give them if it's make the one giant deal if it's taking this long i'd like to believe that that it's because they're trying to exp they're doing their best to expand it and not that they're lowballing them with the offer it's either that or it could also be that oakland is also doing what the yankees are doing with a big free asian they're saying let rizzo go let freeman go and then we got to feel the play open whoever's rizzo if they really wanted to they could deal due to spring training that they wanted to they have they could hold they could they could hold on to them and deal with the at the at the trade deadline they'll get more now likely to they know they know they know that now this off season is is the peak so i mean i'm i'm honestly i i believe that deal is eventually going to happen at some point so i think their first video is going to be that route and it just makes more sense too because if you do eventually spend money on on a short slab if you do especially uh spend money let's say on robbie ray we know it's not going to be cheap and if you do that that locks you in right that locks you in for first base is not going to be too expensive 8 million or so depending on if you do move uh uh uh um herman or or voight or one of these guys you're also saving money there so you could still be moved exactly these are guys who are most likely gonna be moved no doubt about it so you're still saving money in in certain places like that so the yankees off season plan i feel like is well known by the majority of fans we know what they what they should do and i think that's the reason why a lot of us are just like but there's been nothing yet so all of it could come at one time all of it could come very quickly but i think there are certain moves that just make more logical sense because the yankees aren't going to go dish out 300 plus guys they're not going to do that i i i feel overly confident now that we're not going to see that happen maybe it does and i told you i said it a hundred times if it's wrong i'll be happy to say i was wrong i did not and based off the people telling me it i don't see the yankees doing it now i know your past sins and all these other guys saying they're gonna make a huge splash they're gonna you know they're gonna spend the money i don't see it i don't i don't see it i don't see it happening maybe it will but when it comes to the logical moves there are still so many out there without having to spend a ton of money that they could make to greatly improve this team it's just that they they have to go and do it and and right now you know there hasn't been a you know a jump in the gun to do so i'm still i'm i'm still a maybe on like the big short stop signing i don't know but do you think a 300 plus million i say maybe i say maybe the only reason i say maybe is this if the luxury tax threshold goes up to freaking 2 30 yeah or 240 or some [ __ ] like that then 300 another 300 million dollar deal is not going to do anything to the yankees but it's happening i could see them do it but if that doesn't yeah also it is it is house time and he does want to resign judge so that's that's the thing yeah but to me that's that's what that's what keeps me like at bay with it right now because like i don't know what the luxury tax is gonna be after the new cba is signed i know they want to sign judge i know they want to sign a pitcher i know they have to pay somebody at shortstop so i'm like they already have cold air they already have stent in there um if they do trade for olson it probably isn't so that they watch them walk away in two years so they would want to pay for him too like i'm looking at it and i'm like okay i could see you know i could see what's happening here this is an off-season that could set you up for a team that is locked in for the next three three four seasons that's right and this is who you're going with and then you just add and plug and plug and play when you need to yep right that's what has me like saying i'm iffy on it because i don't know what the cba is going to be yeah if i know for a fact that the cba is going to be the the luxury tax threshold is 2 35 next year or 2 30 or 2 40. that's 240 is crazy 240 i don't know how they don't sign correa and just say [ __ ] it because why not give me correa give me robbie ray like we can add both of them and still be under like get the [ __ ] out like like barely over um so that's what's gonna really upset fans when it actually happens and they don't do the moves exactly see that that's really gonna upset fans that's that would be where you really like and that's where i would really like lose it because i just feel like you stayed under the threshold last year the threshold went up this year and you still didn't sign one of these guys like what like well let me let me not say lose it because like say the threshold does go up to 230 240 and they don't get correa they don't get seeger but they get robbie ray they get story and they get like i'm probably not going to lose it because i'm going to be like i'd be happy about that i'm like we got better we got better tell you something you changed three positions if you could if you could change three yeah let me let me i'll bump it up to four i'll bump it up to four just to be fair just be friend i already said i don't think shortstop is the major priority that everybody's talking about i think it is just because of the names available but i think if you upgraded that olsen if you get a catcher if you upgrade a starting pitcher and then of course you get a shortstop whoever that may be i think that's enough and that's me saying it i'm not an easy sell i'm a hard sell i've said that i've said that you're probably coming march you know ny news tv jumps up in january you're probably gonna hear pete complaining i'm just keeping it real because i don't have faith in the team right now and the [ __ ] i hear is not cute you know and i try to report most of it some of it i don't report out there i tell you guys about it because i can't corroborate it yet with anybody else and when i do it then i'll report it i'll put it out there but a lot of the [ __ ] i'm hearing isn't cute so you know because of right now i'm not the most you know i'm not hopping up and down but like you said you were right if we didn't get correa if we didn't get seeger you end up getting story even if it's a one-year deal you you get olson over there you sign robbie ray also and maybe you get a uh you trade you trade for catching i'm telling you right now i'm gonna pat brian cashman on the back and i'm saying look for what you were given you did a hell of a job with what you were given without the big money without steinberg saying he go kid here's a blank checkbook have fun without that being said you did a good job cash i'll pat you on the back but i'm not patting nobody on a bag if they gonna play the waiting game they're gonna lock up correa or seeger and say yeah we also got olsen yeah the offense is cute but that's not enough of me it's not enough for me all right we got it we got we got to see we got to see what happens i mean honestly i'm just i'm dying for them to do something like i was hoping that the olsen deal would get done you know before the the lockout just so that we're like we went into the lockout with you know an ace in our pocket already like well we know you know we know austin's our first baseman already going in so that's one thing less to worry about now we just got to figure because to me this just like we said there's a lot like is laboratories going to be there still opening day or are we going to put dj at second base shouldn't be but he probably will you know what i mean and he pro and he probably will be he probably will be like he probably will be and they probably i see a lot of people talking about you know them moving geo and then putting dj at third which i don't like i don't like that at all i don't like it that at all but uh i did it i did it again i got i got a faulty um faulty wire here yeah but i mean i'll tell you this i'll tell you this uh i was thinking about this recently the last couple of days uh in regard to glaber if they if by some miracle and again i say miracle because i have it i still have it really low on my list of possibility but if by some miracle they end up with carlos correa i do feel a lot better about gleber tourists and i'll tell you that second base yeah yeah because he is not going to be able to pull that [ __ ] with korea over there he shouldn't be like that correa is not going to have that [ __ ] not not running not hustling into first base not running balls out errors and [ __ ] like correa is not gonna have that he would be an amazing influence for somebody like labor tourists he might he might unlock that potential in clever tourists that they've been trying to sell us all for years fire under his ass taurus is worrying me that he's headed down to gary sanchez's path very quickly i remember i i said it uh it was towards the end of the season it might have been by the deadline that i was like he's really working me on that he's too comfortable he's got this he's got completely something wrong there too i don't know if he's with management too that just lets him lets him do the [ __ ] he does i don't know but um that's all goes with leadership too and chemistry in the clubhouse and whatever that looks like um that the yankees obviously need to work on they they don't design that he didn't listen to the hitting coach at all no that much no that much was obvious tim's came don't worry about it and said it like yes this guy you know doesn't really stick to the uh the approach that we come up with but it's crazy because i was looking at videos of him you know early on in his career and i was just like geez like i just look at his swing and i'm just like what happened it just got it got so much low too how did you lose like like because his swing early on a thing of beauty pulling ripping ball like whatever i'm like he would turn on a pitch very very quickly yeah you would turn the pitch very very you watch him now it's like a labored swing it's labored he's completely off balance he's very very different grounded out to second base all the time little weak pop-ups barely out of the infield i'm like what happened what happened i don't know i mean yeah he's working on his hitting don't get me wrong i know some of you guys are watching this well he's been working on his hitting with judge yeah i saw the videos too friggin batting cage doesn't do much for me that's my thing i'm like what do you guys think a lot of baseball players do all off season you really think they go home and sit on the couch and and watch netflix all day no some of them are freaking games some of them might but most of these guys have been doing this their entire life so guess what their offseason requires around doing stuff with baseball i was happy i love when they see that stuff like oh my god look he's working out oh my god guys they play major league baseball you know you want to try to stay sharp to a degree he better be working out no i don't the only thing the only thing the only thing that i will say about that that i was happy to see was that that that's probably the first time i saw him in the off season working with judge and i was like that's who you need to be working out with yeah that's true if you're going to work out with anybody that uh it's i'm not saying that oh him and geo is not a good no they're good pals and friends or whatever but whatever geo's approach is to hitting he can afford to do that labor cannot quickly reconnect he needs to be with somebody like judge who's gonna get him to that laser focus or whatever because there's some i'm telling you and that's why like i said like oh yeah you end up with somebody like korea and i know correa will he will be on glaber torres ass from day one to the end of the season he won't let that kid rest he will not let that kid rest he makes a mistake you'll see it he'll call him out in the dugout he'll call him out on the field but what the [ __ ] he'll be getting those looks on the field and everything yeah yeah yeah it'll be it will be it will be something but i think i think that's how you get the potential that you need to get out of labor because that's tough that's the way that we got it out of gary's tough love works tough love to work for some reason we were told that um you know boone was just meant to be a therapist and he's not allowed to apparently do any of his other [ __ ] so that that's dr melfi that's all he's supposed to be is dr melfi and that's it so it is what it is you know the yankee off season is underway we'll see what happens um i do want to talk about the first hall of fame ballot that's been released um by jack mccaffery who released the first hall of fame ballot today may i just say this real quick these people shouldn't deserve votes so let me just read you guys some of the names that are on this barry bonds roger clemens todd helping tory hunter andrew jones jeff kent um joe nathan david ortiz justin morneau tim lindsecum john papa bond jake peavy andy pettit manny ramirez alex rodriguez scott rowland jimmy rollins kurt schilling is last year gary sheffield sammy salsa mark tashira omar visquel vasquel and billy wagner this guy here's the guys you heard all those names here's who we voted for bobby abreu todd helton ryan howard andrew jones jeff kent jimmy rollins jimmy [ __ ] rollins and omar vizquel this guy has a hall of fame vote this is how this is literally one of the dumbest ballots i have ever seen this is worse than the dude who left jeter off the ballot and we're gonna see a bunch of them we're going to see a bunch of them like this now the only one that i almost agree with that could potentially be jeff kent i agree with jeff ken what about andrew jones i agree with jeff kent um i mean all the andrew jones defense counts let me tell you something he's one i'll give him the center i'm going to be i'm going to be i was going to say i'm going to be lenient i'll give him i'm i'll give you omar vesquel for sure all right i'll give you jeff kent i'll give you andrew jones bro my man voted for jimmy rollins jimmy rollins i'm not you know and yo no offense i love jimmy no offense oh fema come on i'm not voting for jiminy rollins especially not like my thing is how you vote for jimmy rollins and not gary sheffield yeah that means like where does your brain like where does your brain go that you're like players on there not not gary how do you vote bobby or brady i don't care if they took more steroids than a horse stakes bro how do you vote how do you jimmy rollins over alex roger matter of fact let's take the several years away over scott rowland um he didn't vote he didn't vote for scott rowland you got a better case for scott fam you got a better case for billy wagner being one of the best clothes of all time this is crazy because this is gonna get so this is gonna be so bad i'm looking at this and i'm just like look are we missing someone jimmy rollins i'm about to look up jimmy jimmy i'm today i'm looking like i'm looking like this and i'm just i'm just looking at i'm just like you know i see i know what i know what the problem is here look um i may have an mvp award it's current it's before career hitter 2 400 hits i remember he won the one mv i know he won this is not a hall of famer yeah one two three four four gold gloves one two three this is a good rea a good a very not even fair i won't even say very good this is a very solid major league ball player bernie williams was borderline hall of fame this is a very solid ball player bernie williams was way better than jimmy rollins oh not even come on i mean come on way better than jimmy rollins and people have no problem telling us that bernie williams wasn't even he shouldn't be that's why he's not a part of the core four and he wasn't important and all that [ __ ] don't give me that um he's a career 297 hitter i'm like don't don't give me it people swear bernie williams 297 he almost had 300 home runs as a center fielder bro these are the same people who tell us that batting average doesn't matter and those other nonsense i don't even listen to them anymore jimmy my biggest problem my biggest problem with this ballot it's not even going to be what most people think it is because the steroid stuff and everything yeah i'm i'll give you my opinion on that my biggest problem is this is it's kurt schillings last year and you writers are going to leave him off the ballot because of his political views because of his political views and i hate that i'm i hate that i have to do this as a yankee fan because like curt schilling was the bane of my existence for a long time like when he was on arizona when he was on boston like i don't like kurt schilling as a player because he didn't do anything but hurt me but i'll be damned if i sit here and let you guys leave him off the ballots because of his political views i don't see what the hell that has to do there has nothing to do with it what he did on a baseball scene nothing at all yeah what he did on the baseball field now i guess i could say this was a criminal if he was a criminal or something well on top of it murdered people well on top of it too there was never nothing on the base before while he played that was political no or nothing on a field where you looked at i was like oh my god he made a remark like that's disgusting that's what i'm saying he never did nothing to disgrace himself as a player this is what i'm saying but no he comes out and you know he supports somebody people don't like and all of a sudden it's like now you can't get into the hall of fame after the career that kurt schilling had like that's what we're going to do so we're we're going to we're going to keep kurt schilling out we're going to keep curse shilling out but you're going to you're going to check off jimmy rollins with a straight face i got over 3 000 career strikeouts over 200 wins he pitched 3 200 innings yeah they don't realize that you're not going to see no guys like this not at all you're not going to see guys like this anymore pitchers don't even pitch into the sixth inning anymore all right what this guy was so hated he couldn't even win a cy young award bro the man listen i i really cannot believe that i have to sit up here and defend curt schilling because like i'm telling you i would scream crazy things at my television set when he was pitching against the yankees crazy things i would if you would have told me 10 you know 10 years ago 12 years ago that i'd be on a podcast defending that man i would have laughed you out the room but i guess i have to because there's no sense anymore people are gonna they will comfortably check off jimmy freaking rollins and overlook kurt schilling in his last year on the ballot so he's going to fall off the ballot because you don't like his political views and but but nobody nobody can explain to me how that how that affects what he did on the field nothing at all we were talking about this before we were talking about this before we went live with all this stuff like this kurt schilling to even think about it like i look at this list i'll pull this list up kurt schilling is a first ballot hall of famer not even and he already said he doesn't care if he doesn't get in he's like i'm just a student of the game i love the game whatever it is what it is he actually he said he'd rather be removed from the list altogether because he's like he doesn't think it's right it's it's stupid like there should be a bar set where you're just a hall of famer i'm sorry there needs to be like a standard have you reached these certain numbers there shouldn't be anybody that that allows them to judge you as a person so you don't get in because i'm gonna keep it real people are gonna say i'm getting political here they're a bunch of liberal supporters there are a bunch of liberal leaning folks who see that kurt schilling does not share their political beliefs and will not vote for him you're giving certain people again power that they probably don't fully deserve it's the same people that's holding all the steroid users no matter what accountable that either with or without steroids they should be in the hall of fame that's another argument that it's like i'm so sick and tired of having these freaking talks with people like you can say whatever you want you don't like alex rodriguez you would that's fine or whatever alex rodriguez is one of the greatest baseball players of all time he's a hall of famer i don't care what you think barry bonds he might be the greatest he might be the greatest ball player ever right i i don't care what you think about what he i don't care i don't care he might be the greatest ball player ever steroids are not the guy there was the greatest seasons ever that's that's not even comparable he had the greatest seasons of all time oh and then no no but and then people went oh but to stare away it tarnished and stained the game don't give me that [ __ ] bud ceiling knew all about that [ __ ] all everybody knew all about it everybody was turning their freaking turning a blind eye to it because they were selling tickets they were filling they were putting butts in the seats after years where baseball was losing viewership they were losing patrons at the ballpark yeah they were trying they were losing everything was the humble home run remember the um chicks dig the home the long ball chicks dig the long balls that was the big thing it was all about the home run the same the same wire and sosa i was just about to say that oh brewers he owned the brewers during the time i remember mark maguire will pull ahead of of sammy solis in a home run race sosa would go to milwaukee and hit five home runs in a three-game series he was getting fastballs down the pipe and i'm sitting in my i remember my father do something said no he'll catch up to him because we both we both love mark maguire but we love sammy sosa it was like a thing like whoever won one but yeah these this brought baseball back you know what i mean i remember sitting in front of the computer yeah when game day like first came out and no joke me and my dad we were so stupid we would sit there right and we would wait for the in-play run thing to pop we sit there like this home run home run home run in front of the computer screen and you know if you got the homework oh yeah yeah you know what i mean but that [ __ ] brought baseball back so the same cats that are getting crucified made all these people money and they turned that back on them and stabbed them in the back and my thing is my thing on top of that is you want to talk and sit on your high horse now as an organization major league baseball do whatever do whatever you want but then you know what i want all the right whatever records were set during the juice ball season i want those i want those erased well i want them erased do any of the astros will deserve to be in the hall of fame no it's confirmed they cheated that's not a that's not a rumor oh yeah but they're gonna they're gonna they're gonna get them i already saw somebody the other day telling me that jose altuve is a first ballot hall of famer or that he will eventually get into the hall of fame and listen i'm not going to be the guy who's going to fight against whether jose altuve is going to get in there or not if he has a couple good a couple more good seasons if he wins another ring if he does that and they want to put him in the hall of fame so be it i don't like the guy i think i'm not going to say that here's politically incorrect but i got you know some choice phrases that i like to refer to him as but it doesn't bother me if he gets in or not what bothers me is that if he gets in but you don't let in a rod big poppy manny ramirez barry bonds roger clement like and you don't let them in then it's gonna bother me yep then it's gonna bother it's gonna bother the [ __ ] out of me because the same way that steroids is a stain on their on their legacy forever i want 2017 to be a stain on every astros legacy forever even if we sign korea tomorrow i'm still gonna tell you guys this we can sign carlo's career tomorrow and carl's correa could play the next 10 years in the new york yankees and have freaking the greatest seasons you ever saw when five mvps do whatever if they if the hall of fame comes up and they go or whatever i'm gonna say well no 2017 happened it happened if that's the rule that you guys want to play by but the truth of the matter is that's not the rule they want to play by they they want to scapegoat these guys they want to scapegoat these guys for something that they were all complicit in yeah they were all complicit they all knew that all the owners knew it baseball knew it the players knew it come on it wasn't like some you know the funny thing is when they talk about um jose canseco yeah he was crazy but you released the book juiced and all that started all this nonsense he said it at the time he said flat out the guys they got under congress and all this stuff and testifying at the end of the day it was it was 80 of baseball including the minor leagues yeah so they're targeting the big guys because they were actually good ball players already and this is the issue this is the thing i'm saying that won the baton title one year i forgot his name alex castillo or something like that he did he had i don't know if he won the badass side but he had a really good year he admitted to taking step runs he came back and he was [ __ ] bonds could have got off steroids and still been legit mark maguire would have still been hit at 45 50 plus homers a year sammy sosa would have still been a good ball player a-rod hit 30 home runs at 40 years old what 50 as a rookie what are we talking about here like here's my thing you could you could inject people with as much steroids as you want i mean you want to try it we should try it let them give aaron hicks yeah yeah whatever the let them give aaron hicks whatever the [ __ ] bonds was taken i want to i want to see if he puts up a bonds a bonds-esque season it's not going to happen because his back-to-ball skills aren't what barry bonzas were his eye it was not what barry bonds was like these are things that you can't quantify but you want to tell me that no no it doesn't mean anything because he took stairways or whatever you know how many guys take steroids how many guys did take steroids they got suspended and sucked and still sold yeah no no but they want to tell me no no because don't give me that [ __ ] don't give me that [ __ ] you can't compare it's not the same robinson can know oh robinson cannot take steroids or whatever so now his legacy is targeting whatever well you know what robinson was taking steroids with milky cabrera why wasn't milky cabrera as good as robbie cano right melky cabrera went on to have what 102 decent two or three decent years all together they and him and keno were taking the same exact [ __ ] right the same exact [ __ ] and don't argue because there's people i know people can say oh no how do you know it's whatever trust me i know i'm dominican i've had conversations with people i know where they get the [ __ ] i know how they get the sh i know the name of the [ __ ] they were taking the same exact [ __ ] okay the same exact [ __ ] and they didn't have anywhere near the same exact results because one is naturally just better one was naturally just a better ball player better whatever right a-rod a-rod was a-rod since freaking florida broke i was about to say since college since westminster high school like don't give me that don't give me that like say you didn't like him or you didn't like his attitude and he was over here like walking around like he was baseball's playboy and all that [ __ ] i know you guys didn't like that [ __ ] you were looking for something it was the same thing it was it was this envy it was the same thing with bonds when bob's got oh this he's an [ __ ] sometimes he did something is that you see these guys you look for something to take and now you got it and now you're just gonna stick on to it and that's what that's what my problem is with the whole hall of fame the whole the whole system yeah you got a bunch of you got a bunch of freaking nerds you got a bunch of nerds who got bullied by guys like this growing up and this is how they stick it to them oh yeah well i'm not gonna you're not gonna get my vote you know the funny thing i'm telling you like when you look at that list i mean gary sheffield's a hall of famer gary chef is a hall of famers mcguire sosa schilling clemens they're all hall of famers and to to joke around and act like they're not because of a steroid usage at some point in their career because it's obvious barry bonza to take steroids his whole career it's obvious that most of these guys didn't take steroids their whole career that stuff's obvious but they were they were some of the best pitchers and hitters in the history of major league baseball but i mean leaving leaving that at that i got something funny to bring up because i didn't think it would happen this quickly marcus strowman uh stroh is gonna end up hurting his chances of getting a major deal no he already hurt them he's continuing to do it no no serious organization this dude is going to end up on the on the colin kaepernick level of things he really is i don't think he's getting out of baseball not even in the best way though so joe killer joe said earlier to me he goes pete what he's what's going to happen soon he's going to see the met signing golf man or siana visa and he's going to start calling them racist my man likes a post just now that says at stro no shocker the mets prefer the white guys over you what are you thinking in your mind nobody's taking here's my thing i would love to sit down with marcus stroman about you want to see what that's what i would say to him i would say marcus you are a terrific athlete a very talented pitcher very talented why are you allowing [ __ ] to affect the person you are you have serious issues my friend stay off twitter so you sign that and the fact that he's the type of guy that feels the need to try to shun regular everyday people you know how many people say look how much did you make last year man man the dude bags groceries he's 18 years old what's your problem you're a major league ball player go be a ball player no that's it anyone who disagrees with his line of thinking and that's like i think i said would you want him on yankees no no no yeah no i think he did whatever i also respond i said i would capital that as a hell no yeah no i don't want to do nowhere near the yankees what's that what's sad is what's sad is you could you could actually ask me the same question two years ago when he was coming off a four-plus era on toronto and i would have told you and i would have told you yeah i want to give german a shot because i really liked him in toronto and i said you know what he's a small guy i was like but his kid has so much freaking heart he's a dog out there he's tough i was i really liked him i was like yeah i was like if you would ask me back then i would have been like yeah let's do it then the whole thing came up when he was on the training block and the yankees were one of the people that people were saying like oh they're considering it they were considering it or whatever that year we could have gotten strowman we could have not gotten stronger we could have gone we could have not gotten i think you talked himself out of the yankees interest to be honest if we would have gotten him i would have been happy that year all right but he started chirping during the trading block and it didn't happen now clearly some people like people say oh well you know casper said that they you know they didn't see anything that they thought would have made them better and that's why they didn't make the move he happened to be one of the players that was moved he took it personal that they didn't say that they didn't feel like he would make them better or whatever clearly strowman wanted to be a yankee he wanted to be a yankee when he got traded from toronto he thought there was a there was a point in time that season where he thought for sure he was a yankee and then he realized he wasn't yeah he ended up being being a met yeah yeah but the talking and the constant chirping and yapping because you took it personal whatever it's just it's immature it doesn't endear you not i mean i don't care if you're if you endear yourself to yankee fans or not we don't give a [ __ ] you don't play for us but it doesn't endear you to just fans in general like you gotta look at organizations that are like clean you know i'm saying like you know organizations that just they're really you know on top of their the business of baseball if they're looking at you right now they got to really take a step back and say like but do we really need this head case here like yeah if he's is he going to get into an argument with somebody they're going to fight with the guys in the media is he going to fight with some fans is he going to like do we need that if if why do you think st louis went and grabbed steven matt's just like that or whatever some people say that st louis was still monitoring strowman as of today i don't think they make a play for him why why do you need that instead yeah i don't no i'm like um uh i i actually just this the first time i looked at like his likes on his i'm like i'm like almost in like a world of amazement here yeah people hate him like you because of your skin color i'm like that's not no no he likes a lot of stuff he likes a lot of stuff like that because he feels like does it give him like like confidence to keep doing this type i don't understand i'm very confused here and it's not see that's the thing is like i know like some people say oh of course you're gonna tell him that oh he gotta shut up but why does he have to shut up he shouldn't have to shut up he should be able to speak up not even i would say this bro i've said this about trevor bauer last year so don't come to me with that [ __ ] like oh you would you wouldn't say no i would because i said it to trevor bauer who is a white starting pitcher in the major leagues and a way better starting pitcher than strowman is i told him that he should have shut up last year when they were doing all the tweeting right all the videos because now it talks like he was actually oh yeah yeah but but i'm even though even with the sexual assault now it looks like he's actually right yeah so you know he was defending is that that he actually didn't do it but you see that that that all of a sudden i guess the right people got to trevor and when the whole sexual allegation [ __ ] came out that he was talking talking talking somebody must have got them and say you know what yup just be quiet stop talking stop or whatever let everything play out and then you'll be able to come back with it and now if he does get fully exonerated and all that which is that what that's what it looks like right now yep now he can come back and say whatever the [ __ ] he wants yeah and he's going to because he already started you know what i mean he's pretty confident because he already kind of started yeah now he can come back and say whatever he wants and you're not gonna be able to say nothing and that's what strongly could do the same thing though what do you sit there and be like bro you're you know you're saying [ __ ] about like the biggest market in the planet bro i would have taken him out literally like he's calling mets fans racist he's liking post that says there's a there's a majority of mets fans that are racist he said that about the fans he liked it so writing on the wall stro going elsewhere it's a shame most of ny wants him there's a there's a subset of racist fans that screw any of his comments towards him not being able to handle new york which is false and he likes oh that's he liked that tweet also i didn't see that i'm just like yeah but there's a ton of them there's a i didn't know this there i i just the first time i looked at this dude's likes i'm like i'd want this dude nowhere near this club here's another one no no he can't wait for me to go out there and prove all the haters wrong they're only hating on you because you're a skin color all right what what what fans i mean who are these people it has nothing to do they don't like marcus strowman because he has a small man syndrome he if i was blind if i was blind i would have a problem with marcus it's it's the attitude it's the attitude it's the attitude and that and i'm not about guys like tory hunter exactly no dory hunter talked about um there not being enough black players in baseball he talked about he talked about issues but he worried about it the right way or how about this how about how about andrew mccutchen andrew mccutchen cause he was like they shouldn't make me you know take my my dreads off what i got i'm doing it but my thing is like andrew mccutchen has talked about there now cece's a bathtub about not being enough i have never seen them come out as like well the reason is because baseball's racist i have never heard them say that i have never heard them say well the fans are racist or this one's racist that they never there's things everything is racist yeah there's things about the there's things about the game that that are like how you say they limit the interest of like you know african-american kids to want to like come up in the game which doesn't make the game inherently racist there's just certain things about it that you if you made changes it would obviously appeal more if you made the game more accessible to people you know of african-american descent and inner cities and things like that or whatever you would be able to get more there's a lot of things like that there's a lot there's a lot but to say that oh it's like no no that's that's that's not true like cece sabathia just retired from the new york yankees we love that that man is a god here he is a god like don't don't start with that [ __ ] whatever because you're that's a battle you're gonna lose that is a battle you are going to lose we love cc sabathia luis severino is way darker than you are marcus strowman there are people there are people in this new york yankee fan base who would die for submarines for real huge severino fans huge huge huge i love the guy's energy i love what he brings inside trust me trust me i mean severino will have the stadium don't let severino come back and be halfway decent he's going to have the whole stadium freaking shaking more than coal would more than people love him they can't get enough of it right they look what are we talking about here like what are we don't do that don't do that because i could see if it like if it was something whatever pointed or whatever but it's like no marcus they're they're pursuing guys who are gonna cost around what you're gonna cost but probably give them more that's what they're doing it's called business it's called business not to mention that the guys are pursuing aren't gonna probably talk as much as you do yep that's another thing that you don't wanna that he doesn't freaking own up to he never owns up to it maybe the fact that you run your mouth non-stop is turning teams off because i know for a fact if i'm saint louis if i'm atlanta if i'm not i don't want that [ __ ] yep but i care about the business of baseball and i care about what my team looks like and with the product that we're putting on the field in front of our fans and presenting to the world like maybe you don't want that that whole thing that you did a couple weeks ago we're like oh i'm never going to the yankees i'm not cutting my dreads i'm not taking off my do-rag um these tattoos ain't going anywhere you made a fool of yourself with that marcus you made it for yourself i i named like four or five yankees right at the top of my head that had tattoos all over the place yep there's nothing the yankees have no rule about wearing something over your hair under your hat luke voigt wears a headband tyler wade wore a headband plenty of guys were yeah the do-rag thing is stupid the du-rag that was very stupid blue rack comic was was ignorant on your part but not even you know that was ignorant well hey one of the things i talk about a lot is that i i talk about that a lot a lot of people make comments and they get called racist or this or that a lot of it is actually ignorance a lot of that's what it was actually pure ignorant racist is different when you're racist you can't hide your racism you know what i mean i'm not gonna i'm not gonna name a certain person out there right now that called satchel paige the great negro of his time which i've never heard in my lifetime to me that that's that's a hard limit of of actually somebody slipping up because there's tendencies there that's like calling people of color like well with the colored people over there yeah you don't say that nowadays if that that's natural out of your mouth you are a racist there's no way of denying that when you use in terms of the 1950s that are derogatory towards people that that's tough that's a tough one to fight especially in america when it was a black and white thing that that's a tough thing to argue but when you're like well marcus strowman is doing i'm like man i see it right now he already had another tweet in there talking about kevin goffman getting 175 million or so but strowman's a better pitcher so what should he get then and i'm like bro i can't wait to see what you signed for i can't wait to see who gives you money but there's what people don't understand is that there's there's a whole other side to this when it comes to business he's gonna make it about race watching when he eventually signs he's gonna make it a huge race thing he probably will 100 percent 100 because he's already making it about race judging by the tweets that judging by the tweets that he's liking but i'm i i couldn't disagree more i'm sorry i couldn't disagree more and just i don't know if you if marcus strowman ever saw this if somebody ever shows i'm a person of color right now i got my bright lights on me in the living room and stuff like that we're filming a podcast so i look a lot lighter probably than than but trust me if we saw each other in person marcus me and you are the same color bro like trust and believe a person of color just like you this is not about that it is not about that and i'm somebody i am somebody in the past who has literally said you know certain things like hey you know it's harder for you know latino managers to get to get gigs coming out of retirement and things like that when they retire off the field why does it take so so much longer for them to get shots to you know manage and to do things like that or why is it that like some latinos or or african americans will do really well in a peripheral coaching job but then they'll just disappear off the face of the earth yeah i i speak out and i'm very vocal about things like that we did on this podcast we did on this podcast yes we did we did it and we did we but we did it even before that when we were talking about tony we were talking about tony pena we were like tony fell off the face of the earth and he's an amazing freaking coach he should get a shot you should get a shot at something some sort of coach listen this is the podcast where we've literally i'm telling you all we do is keep it real when we said oh it could be oh by the way uh marcus i got uh children and a woman who was as dark as you two bro so in case in case you want to pick on in case you want to pick on the italian dude here you know you probably ain't going to go too far on that one family nah you're going to look crazy you're going to look crazy because his family is like but this is that's my thing it's like bro it's that's that's just it's ignorance man don't do that and and my biggest problem with this and i hate to go political i'ma just for one just one statement and i'm leaving at that but my biggest problem with this is that when you make everything about race you weaken the arguments that that are actually about it are true when you turn everything into a racist thing then it just seems like you're crying wolf and that's what pisses me off corrupt that's the pistol because there could be somebody out there in some sports league in some situation who's getting discriminated against because of the color of their skin being held down yeah that's right but not but not you but not you and when and when you do that when you do that and make your little tiff about race when it's not it weakens the person's argument who [ __ ] actually is about it and that's what pisses me off yeah because you as an african-american man as a person of color because you're also puerto rican you don't like to whatever but you're also puerto rican so you as a person of color knowing the struggles that people of color have you come out and are gonna make this about race knowing that there's people out there battling real race [ __ ] like stupid bro that's that's and on top of that and on top of that um i don't know much about this so it's me talking out of ignorance when it comes to marcus strowman but i would love to know what he's done for foundations i would love to know what his background is with inner city sports i would love to know what he's done in that area and the reason why i'm not attacking him for not doing it because i don't know i don't know if he has but somebody who speaks that loudly you should be leading that charge then you should be leaving that charge i've seen young black players yeah i've seen him do a couple of things so i'll give him credit there i've seen him do like a couple of couple a couple of things in terms of like giving back and like community outreach and enrichment and things like that and he should do a lot i mean so i'll give him me i'd be i'd be breaking my back doing stuff for my community if that was the case you know what i mean no doubt about especially if i'm getting a hundred plus million dollar deal very likely i mean yeah you better believe i'm finding areas um and and talking to people that we can build things there or or build stadiums or build fields have youth programs have grants for colleges so many different things that you can actually do to really assist in that in that process um so there's just a lot there so i just wanted to bring that up because it's funny because joe actually said it earlier he's like watch very soon you're going to see it start becoming about race and this whole thing that he hasn't had a deal yet and the pitchers are getting it and unfortunately that's what he's doing so yeah but he doesn't it's crazy like how can how you can be a major league baseball player a young major league baseball player who quote unquote should understand the game better as much or as better than anyone else and he doesn't even understand his own market the reason that marcus strowman isn't signed yet is because he's viewed as one of the better starters in the market the market never starts at the top yep it always starts in the middle or towards the bottom so they go there's teams who know that they're completely out of the running for certain guys and so they start at the middle or the bottom you think carlos correa is worried right now that baez is getting all this attention no because he knows that he's carlos freaking correa and he's viewed as way better than javi baez and so he is going to get his when javi baez is out of the way let the teams who are in on that level get out of the way you think robbie ray cares that the mets are talking to gosmen and that all these people are talking to god you think robbie ray's at home worrying biting his nails like oh my god maybe they don't want a cowboy on their team no right no cowboy gonna do in new york he knows that they're getting the middle tier out of the way they got verlander out of the way you got thor out of the way you got mats out of the way you got e-rod out of the way they're getting all these people all the way strowman is actually viewed by most of all most of all the baseball insiders and analysts as one of the better starters available this offseason yeah of course we already admitted that we said that already if he would just shut the [ __ ] up his market probably would be three times what it is right now but i mean i hate to break it to you bro like a lot of teams just don't want to deal with that i look if if i if i'm a team or if i'm i don't know i know if i'm if i'm in a big market i'm sorry you could say whatever you want he's not that good where i like i'm d i'll deal with it i'm sorry well you'll deal with it because it's not it's not it's not korea where korea can do all of that whatever he wants i was talking when joe said it the other day joe was like you know how long has he or he said something about i'm like well the reason why i wouldn't want it for five years is because i don't think he's gonna last because pitchers his size usually don't and that's not a knock on him unless you're like a pedro martinez but pedro is even bigger than strowman was so i mean your tim lindsay comes these guys fall off you scott kasmir's they fall off the small you don't usually see pictures that are what five eight five nine whatever he is um they probably got him listed like five ten five eleven but he's not he's like five eight you know pitchers like that don't normally last yeah i know he's not a gay he's not a gasser he doesn't throw flames but you know if he lasts five years i'll actually be shocked and if he signs a five-year deal if he has five good years i'll be amazed i'll be amazed and here's the thing most most baseball people don't expect marcus strowman to have the the last two projections are never that great the last two years that he had nobody's projecting him to do that over the next five years and yet and yet he's still projected to get a deal worth at least five years so what does that what does that tell you mark is that that you have value in the market that you've earned what you're about to receive again if you would just stop like it's like it's like you're you're like self-destructive like you you want to do damage to your own reputation right now because you're not going to damage the mets reputation right they just signed they just signed starling martay to a contract where he makes almost 20 million a year he's darker than you he's older than you like what are you talking about so they're racist they could have went and got comfortable then conforto's light skin why didn't they get comfortable they could have said hey [ __ ] it we're going to italian why not yeah no they went and got the best they went and got the guy who they thought was best for the job that's what they do that's what most teams try to do marcus i don't think it's a freaking race thing actually i thought the mets really enjoyed him in his time there and for him to start going down this path it's just like if i'm a team looking at him it's like bro this is how quickly this guy can turn on us do we really want to do this no it's a risk it's a let me put it like this this is the best way to put it right it's a it's a not needed risk because he doesn't have to do it yes it's an unnecessary risk but my thing too with him is i'm sorry i see your numbers you have a you have a couple of good years i get it i understand that but to sit there and be like i as a owner would bring in marcus strowman you have to be elite for me to disregard everything else i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you in i'm sorry you could see it however you want i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you with this added [ __ ] it's not worth it you're not worth it that's what i'm saying you're putting you're putting you're adding you're adding baggage baggage for no reason you're adding baggage for no reason bro and that's what if i was his agent i would have definitely bought it as soon as free as soon as free agency started out by listen marcus what we're going to do is we're going to log you out of twitter we are going to we're going to keep you up on on instagram but we're going to we're going to manage that for you we're going to put up you know pictures of you working out you know going out having fun but you know in terms of like you like you know going out there commenting on things or whatever we don't think that's the best thing let me tell you why they can like agents literally have this information at their fingertips i don't but if you guys want to google it this this this is googleable you can go and prove where a player's comments during free agency hurts their market and things like this is a fact i'm not making this up i'm sure his agents could bring this information to him and say look marcus we just don't need but no they let him do whatever keep his stuff and he's out there on twitter you know getting in fights with yankee fans or whatever talking about everybody good in this whatever mind you your team was way worse than the the yankees were a dumpster fire this year and when you put us next to you guys we look like [ __ ] adonises like i don't know how you throw stones when you live in a house that's that made of glass but that's fine you wanted to do that okay but that was just to be tip of the iceberg with your twitter bs now you're going after the organization that you just finished fishing for alluding to them possibly being racist because they're they're looking at kevin gossman and robbie ray over you why can't they just like those pictures better i don't understand it's just um it's just bad man it's just bad overall i mean like you said i if i was his agent i tell him flat out bro can't do it can't do it but you know well see um you know there's obviously a lot more to talk about this season um i probably probably gave marcus stroman too much time but um but uh yeah i mean probably gave him a little too much time there but i mean it is what it is we gotta we still the yankees still got a lot of moves to do a lot of moves to make um and when it happens it happens we'll be there to cover it but um we hit another goal today we hit 6 300 subs um i know we had a goal of 7 000 by january actually had a goal of six thousand by january but we've been rising so much through the ranks that we actually had to push that back to be even higher so for all the fans out there that are continuing to support and subscribing telling their friends and family about us i keep talking about it

missed out on mats all right we're gonna spend some money just a little scoop for you guys real quick just a little scoop for you guys real quick don't be too mad when kevin gossman is about to be a a met today just a little scoop for you guys real quickly my understanding is they've been talking deal for a couple of days now and they could very well close that deal today so kevin gossman may be the next new york met but we ain't here this is not nym news this is ny news you know what i mean oh gods to the mets that's what we give the mets we give the metro gods we'll talk about some of the deal a little bit though so they they pass another skit all you guys know what i'm talking about they're passing out the skit all we know that so anyway let's jump into the new york yankees let's jump into what i talked about in the original in the original thumbnail of this video the disconnect between the new york yankees and their fan base because i wanna i to harp on this a little bit because there's a disconnect and some of it's the fans fault some of us the yankees but they did a great job with pr the yankees have done a tremendous job with pr they have done a great job with pr they've done an amazing job on the public relations side getting the fans to truly buy in to what they're doing all right and if anybody does any super chats or any questions i will get to them as soon as i can but let me finish let me finish this up here first and then we'll get into all the questions we got time to talk today i'm chilling look you know your boys healing up i had my first uh uh um physical therapy i'm all right life is beautiful life is beautiful we're all alive we're all doing a chat today can't be mad about too much right so let's get into it guys i've been talking about this for a while if you have followed me on this page you guys have heard me for a very long time talk about the obvious disconnect between the fan base and the front office now should the fan base dictate every move the yankees make no of course not but the fan base is pretty knowledgeable on what this team needs because who pays more attention to than fans do fans are right there fans are watching yes we don't get the inside information yes we don't see what happens in a clubhouse yes we don't see the type of things that you know maybe we need to have a little more insight on to make certain decisions but for years now during these chats um during my regular videos whether it was me doing a video france is doing a video or be doing a video felix doing his videos doesn't matter who it was we've really shared the same message that the yankees we know what they need to do but the yankees have not done it and we're kind of seeing that trend in that direction today i would say and you guys tell me if i'm wrong or not i would say roughly 70 percent of the fan base wanted aaron boone gone because they have felt he is not the proper manager for this club what do the yankees do to start the offseason boom bring aaron boone right back and they tell us to our face he's one of the best managers in the game they have told us to our face he's not a puppet they have told us to face analytics or not making all the decisions they have told us to her face well you know ask brian i told him you go out there brian you go out there and you get joey gallo even if we go over what do the yankees do brian cashman comes out and goes no you know we stayed under the luxury tax we gave up some more guys that he pay everything we stayed under so not only is there a disconnect between the team and the fan base there's a disconnect up top we also heard i'm just gonna throw quotes at it because this is so damn obvious now we have also heard brian cashman come out and go well um no aaron knew aaron boone knew before he signed here that phil nevin his best friend was gone aaron boone comes out 20 minutes later and goes well if i knew that i don't think i would be here right now what excuse me sir and what are we getting again this off season we are getting the same exact messaging once again we're being told guys we will spend all the money in the world we'll do we got there is no limits now by all means should the new york yankees come out and say we're not going to spend of course not because you don't know what could fall to you but there is a severe disconnect among this club and its fan base the fan base i've been saying for years we need some speed we need athletes we needed a lefty batter so which brian cashman did go do we need versatility we need guys who go first to third guys remember let's get those likes up i want to try to hit 200 likes while we're in here right now we're about we're about to hit over 60. got almost 200 people in here so let's get those likes up and share please share greatly appreciate it but that's where we are we got the fan base feeling that we know what this team needs to do but they have not done it the fans have had an idea of what this team needs to do for years now i'm not talking about this off season and we're going to get to this off season right after this but there is a major disconnect here how do you fix that i don't know they've told us analytics isn't playing the pure role of everything here but it's obvious it is it's about as clear as day it's about as clear as day and unfortunately you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into this idea you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into when the yankees will come out and say hey guys we tried it didn't work out they'll sit there and argue with you well they tried well the yankees tried they went out there to get somebody so with that being said let's talk about the fan base a little bit and where we are as a whole because i've seen this message a lot yesterday black friday wasn't too much of a black friday shopping in a sense of saving for the new york mets they go out there they make multiple moves escobar connor and of course starling martay who was the big drop of the night the cherry on top of the knife for the new york mets and i see many comments and many tweets by yankee fans saying all the yankees aren't gonna spend that much money oh but he's 33 years old oh but the yankees didn't they weren't really serious about him were they this this that that is the part of the fan base who will never dare to put enough pressure on this ball club where it needs to be and unfortunately that mindset and that idea is what the beat riders are also pushing the majority of them it's what the yes network tells you it's what all the wfans and all the stations out there talking about the yankees that have a platform we're not gonna do that here now by all means if we have a teammate who feels that way they're allowed to do what they want they're allowed to come on ny news and say it because that's their realness that's what they really believe in that's okay i'm here to tell you what pete's realness is ny news real talk for the real fan real talk for the real fan that's what you're always gonna get here so when i'm told and i'm looking at these comments dude is 33 years old you wouldn't give him four years because he's too old have you seen martay's body type have you seen marte's body type fam if you think 19 million a year for stalin marte is a bad signing you're out your freaking mind and if you also have the idea that that's out of the range for the yankees they go like another club i gotta keep it real with you for a second if 19 million is too much for the yankees to get an elite center fielder great speed great shape great defense great good arm great speed lead off hitter he checks every single box if you guys remember i talked about the video the other day that will never happen of course cedric mullins but i talked about it because it was news and it's exciting and it would make sense those are the type of guys that check every single box the yankees and yankee fans feel it was too old he was too old he was too old because apparently yankee fans have forgot that we are a win-now team yankee fans have forgot that we need to win a world series yesterday and when you lose that mindset you have now given in to new ownership you have now given in to the hal steinberg and new york yankees you have now given in to being mediocre you have now given in to the excuses you have now given in to second third fourth and fifth place that's what you have now given into so by all means by all means does this really affect the yankees in a major way that they can't have a good offseason no no so maybe there is a slight overreaction and that's okay guys here's another thing here's another thing folks and this is something that a lot of yankee fans love to tell people you're overreacting sure the yankee fans they're allowed to yankee fans are allowed to overreact we go to a ball game and it's like going to disney world we have every right to overreact not me personally because i i don't look am i upset about marta yes i think the yankees could have made that deal i think they could have went a different route but that's what i talked about uh plan one a two a three a c a four a a one one a one b one c there's a lot of different plans the yankees can do to have a terrific ball club for 2022. that is where my problem comes in because again yes is getting martay something where the yankee fans should just be overly angry about or overly mad about or be so upset that they feel like nothing could work is that is that potentially something that the yankees could look at and say this is is something that uh um nothing we do now is gonna work because the mets got martay so oh no we're in trouble no and that is not the way you should run your organization so i understand where some of these yankee fans go guys you're overreacting that's okay but to make the little minor excuses that you're seeing yankee fans make is horrible it is horrible it's pathetic it's terrible you cannot do that let me tell you why and let's get into what the yankees may or may not do we'll also start getting into your guys question so i'll start answering your guys questions and go from there because here's the problem okay do you guys remember and i was talking to my good friend rob before this do you guys remember when aaron boone had a press conference and he was explaining that um g and carlos stanton is a unicorn because and i'm not even making a joke out of this i know i make a joke about the unicorns but stay with me for a second he was making the point that giancarlo stan has it all the guy does everything he could do everything he's like a unicorn he's like that guy he's magical when he's hot he's magical he's he's something else to watch that's the yankees franchise guys this is what bothers me that's the yankees franchise their franchise is a unicorn in that sense not unicornios they're not gonna get hopefully not eating unicorn ears all year that is the new york yankees organization let me explain to you they got money no matter whether hal says it or not they got money they got prospect capital a ton of prospect capital they got everything as a general manager when you go to the new team like the yankees you get look we got money to spend we got prospects to deal we need to fix a few positions and then on top of that on top of that oh you have an unbelievable stock pile of free agents and players that are available via trade think about that for a second again repetitive pete here but you got one a one b one c one d one e one f one g blah blah blah blah blah blah let the wall keep going and have a different plan and it's gonna end up good better than how you started in 2021 that's the problem that is my issue you need to be aggressive here you know when you hide in the bushes so to say do you understand when you when you when you duck for cover because you're looking over the safari you're the lioness you're ready to prowl and hunt you're looking you're waiting you're ducking you're waiting for something to get closer to you if you're doing that for the big catch cool and i'll play devil's advocate here maybe that's what the yankees are doing maybe that's what the yankees are doing because let's let's be real let's look at the whole picture marcus simeon isn't signed seeger is not signed corey is not signed and story's not signed the mariners just got frasier teams are making moves right for the yankees very much you can sit low you could beat a lioness here right you could prowl you could say oh look at this look at this that buffalo's getting close whatever the hell they eat and then boom hope you're not wearing headphones i was probably loud you could sit there and wait you could sit there and wait but that's for the big fish that is for the big fish the yankees can't just sign a big fish to say that's it that's an off season can not work that way seeger makes the yankees a little better but he doesn't do much correa makes the yankees better but he doesn't do much story and simian make the yankees better but it doesn't do it all these cats are out here posting videos of aaron hicks looking like an old man instead of feel making a dive hey look at this guys oh we got a centerfielder baby you guys buying the [ __ ] oh no this cat's out here posting videos of aaron hicks fan aaron hicks doubles in the gap to left field he sucked the bat out and the ball barely went over to do attack should have been should have been caught in center field you saw the route he took on that ball he looked like [ __ ] my man looked like he gained 28 32 pounds and it's slower than he was before he came back hey you cat these cats are listening to these fools they're bragging about it look at our center fielder are we doing what are we doing and these same cats are saying martay's too old these cats are telling you aaron hicks is better than morty these cats are telling you you not me you these are the cats you guys are subscribing to oh let me run let me write these guys quick they're the best oh my god oh let me go buy their [ __ ] oh oh these are the cats you listening to this is why ny news is doing what it's doing because enough is enough of the [ __ ] these cats are pushing aaron hicks on you my man looked like he gained 30 pounds in center field slower [ __ ] to the ball made a bad slide and made the catch and he gets a pound in his chest like look at me what are you doing aaron hicks but wait wait wait these same people fans or whoever these same people will tell you aaron hicks is better than mate and they wouldn't have signed martay because he's 32 years old yankees gave your boy seven years the yankees gave you a boy seven years and he get an aaron look no no disrespect hicks has gotten worse year after year he's gotten heavier year after year he's gotten worse defensively year after year i'm gonna get to the super chats guys i just gotta make this point because it cracks me up year after year that dude got bigger he's gotten slower all right year after year but these same cats to tell you stalin martay who is ripped from head to toe is too old my man still burning on the bases all right fam let me get to these questions let me get to these questions i can't i can't i can't it's your boy i greatly appreciate the super chat fam remember when you warned yankee fans that it wouldn't be a surprise to you if they they're cheap and didn't go out and help go out to help become better this offseason i do it's your boy i was i i said that before everybody else before was cool for the beat riders and everybody else to talk about the yankees not spending 300 plus million i was the only guy saying it because again i was told by four people including a fifth recently but i also said maybe they get a 265 maybe i didn't know that but they're not gonna do what everybody expected and not gonna drop this monster contract on anybody and i the people i was told this that told me this i truly believe i believe them deeply if they told me something right now i tell you that's how i feel about him ella yankeeking says well well well it looks like justin was right since 2018 cashman is bottom five gm but no justin is crazy no well i think you're justin i don't think you're right about that i still don't think you're right about that i don't think brian cashman is a top bottom gm i don't think brian cash is a bottom gm he's done a lot of good moves at the end of the day if it comes to spending that's not brian cashmere that's hal steinberg my problem with brian cashman is he holds on to guys way too long doesn't mean he's a terrible gm it just means he has belief in his system and that's okay but when you're the new york yankee you can't necessarily build your club that way you have to have you have to have you have to have a mindset of certain guys we want to hold on to but we cannot risk keeping them in the name of getting a robbie ray a cl um uh garrett cole you can't hold on to him in those type of positions it's the same thing right now when we talk about matt olsen you got yankee oh no i wouldn't do all that well you got to give up something and you can't be in love with prospects enough to miss out on that so i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say that at all brand especially speaking way too much facts right now brandon this just obvious [ __ ] you know what i'm saying this is just obvious stuff it's just that we are living in a time where fans are eating it up and that's the crazy thing guys if you don't mind please please please please hit the like button i greatly appreciate that we are about halfway to 200 of where i wanted to be so if you guys don't mind please go ahead and do that i would greatly greatly appreciate it and we will continue on let me just see i got a message here all right perfect um yeah but i've seen so many messages guys and i'm not looking to i'm not looking to i'm not looking to [ __ ] on any yankee fans i'm not looking to to do anything like that my whole thing for when it comes to everything that we're talking about here is this is you can't say not to saying that martay was too old to sign to a four-year deal i i don't under i don't get that i don't get that i really i really do not understand that at all to sit there and talk about marte's age and this a win now club what does that mean this team needs a win now this team can't sit back and go all right maybe in 2024 we're gonna win they can't do that they can't do that anthony with the super chat my good friend thank you i think i'm more frustrated that the yankees have been relatively quiet not so much at the met sign martay who would have been a great addition to the yankees hope something happens with them soon well that's what i'm trying to say anthony is that look i'm not i don't think any yankee fan should be you know saying oh the off season's over because we didn't get marty that's not it the problem overall is how quiet the yankees have been as of right now we stand to have aaron hicks batted back in center field and gary sanchez back as the catcher after what gary sanchez has done guys bear with me again for a second after everything gary sanchez has done you still have a fan base who will tell you they can't miss out on his production who is better than him defense fam defense is production how in the hell can you keep this guy as the catcher at his ball club i i i don't understand the mindset of many people in this fan base i don't get it i don't understand it people act like defense has no importance over being a catcher defense is production this guy caught a ball 25 friggin feet from home plate and never tagged the base runner this guy could barely block a ball in the dirt pitchers are probably scared to throw a ball in the dirt this guy towards the end of the year had three starting pitchers the top three arguably in the rotation not want to throw to him this guy got a pop-up call to him went backwards turned the wrong way went back forward and never even touched the ball this guy has not started the playoff game in two years was gary sanchez a rookie last year am i missing something have we not had more than enough time to see who this player is have we not have more than enough time to see who this player is i am completely utterly shocked by what a lot of this fan base is preaching to fans a lot of the people with a platform is preaching to fans you're not gonna see it on this platform i tell you right now we're just gonna keep it real with you you're not gonna see it here real talk for the real fan that's it i don't get it i don't get it me and francis said it for a minute we said look you're gonna know quickly what the yankees are really up to by the little tiny moves they make they ain't done jack [ __ ] the yankees could have went out there and said all right we're going to trade for a catch we're going to sign a free agent we're going to do one of these things just to give the fan base an idea of our this is the direction we headed as of right now fans have every right to be upset because guess what we're standing pat right now can a lot change of course we got the non-tender right here i wouldn't be shocked if something happens if they make a trade or two because again remember when you have the non-tender here if another team non-tender somebody that you want you got to have room for them so i could see the yankees make a move to clear up a little more space i could see that happening but the yankees really going to sit back and give gary sanchez more money for what and it's obvious the last few years we don't have coaches that have enough balls to say all right hold on this [ __ ] needs to work we don't have that it's obvious we don't have that so that's my thing we obviously have not had that we don't have that bring simeon to the bronx thank you for the super chat sign eddie rosario put him in center field no way in hell a contended team can depend on hicks to be your starting center fielder 100 love the content well i thank you for that my friend and look man that's the thing you hit it right in the that's why i love i love my people that come in these chats i love and look guys the yankee fans that think like us that want to win now we're the majority we're still the majority we're still the majority ny news is going to be so damn big it's going to make your guys head spin soon enough okay where the majority but you hit it right in the head right on the head the yankees are one of the only teams that will tell you flat out after teams that want to win that will tell you flat out after injuries all right well look we're getting severino back so don't worry about anything all right guys don't worry we think we think gary sanchez is going to improve he's worked so hard this offseason aaron hicks did well in in winter ball we know he's ready to give us that bats he's going to have a terrific season they're the only win-now team who will tell you that their excuses that you know is [ __ ] is what's going to make them better because guys again i will never change my opinion of this if the yankees go out there they eventually get a guy like sager seeger but they still have hicks and center and gary behind the plate what the hell is the point what the hell's the point what the hell is the point brandon then joey vlogs thank you so much for the super chat i appreciate it jonathan jonathan alvarez i'm not calling i got i got to put you on the spot he says yes we had a majority but jonathan you are a fan who goes all the way back with me all the way back to when i broke the news about gary sanchez nobody else broke that news i broke the news about gary sanchez about the team being upset with how he came into training out of shape he didn't hit the weight they wanted i broke that news but i'm asking jonathan because i'll tell you why jonathan was a huge gary sanchez fan i bet jonathan doesn't want him behind a plate in 2022. jonathan has had enough and jonathan you can throw it in the chat and darius darius glover my good friend he said the non-tender deadline is tuesday to 30th that is right tuesday to 30th so it wouldn't shock me to see the yankees make a move or two before that but jonathan knows jonathan was a big fan he was a big fan of gary he he he remembers all my videos he remembers all of them many people in here that go back with me you know three or four years remember all that stuff that's right it's so dumb that they treat guys coming back from injury as they were trade acquisitions that is so friggin true and that's what the yankees do the yankees have done that for a minute now brandon and joey vlogs i greatly appreciate that my friend yankees need to fix the issues and get a first baseman and a shortstop who can provide uh provide defensive defensively and offensively it's not how if not how should sell the team yankees need to fix the issues to get a first baseman in the shore someone can provide yes 100 true 100 true and that's the thing man the yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up they know what needs to happen we all know what needs to happen we know what needs to happen it's that simple we understand that the problem is going out and doing it so when yankee fans sit back again and they're saying oh we didn't sign marte oh boohoo to the fans who upset guys it's not about the fans being upset it's that we have a lot of [ __ ] to do we have a lot of [ __ ] to do if signing seeger is all we had to do then all right this would be me right now yeah guys you know um something's gonna happen give it a little time don't be panicking it's all right you know it's only it's only uh it's not only about to be december don't worry about it guys it's all right things will happen that would be me right now but that ain't what this team needs and everybody knows that this team needs a catcher they need a center field or at least a backup they need a first baseman they need a shortstop they need pitching those are five main spots and you know the scary thing where is it at guys up the middle catcher shortstop center field winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle okay can't have gary sanchez your catcher you can't have aaron hicks i'll be nice you can't have aaron hicks as the full-time center fielder and you got to have a short stop who at least can feel the ball very well you got to have all that if the yankees don't do that there's too much that's too much so you can't sit there and oh they're waiting in the bushes for deals no no no can't happen like that can't happen that way it can't happen that way it can't happen like that and you guys know that give me one second guys i just got a message i wanted to take a look at one second guys all right cool cool cool uh tyler i appreciate that the yankees are serious about winning the yankees are serious about winning if sanchez's catcher hits it i'm assuming you mean not serious about winning uh catcher hicks in center field and torrez's team period yeah i mean 100 no no i think i know what tyler man tyler meant not serious um he just missed that word there i'm pretty sure uh knowing tyler i'm pretty sure because he has the same mindset as where i've been but that's where it is that's where it is right now um i'm trying i'm trying to corroborate a rumor here that i just got from somebody else um hold on one second guys so i i just got a i'll wait to corroborate it a little more but my understanding is somebody just said that the yankees actually and not somebody but i obviously don't want to say who the person is but um i just got a message saying that the yankees have actually talked to the braves about dansby swanson so i don't know how much legs that has i don't know how realistic that actually is but um give me a second and we will i want to corroborate that with a few other people first before um we go anywhere else with that but my understanding is that the yankees have have had a conversation i don't know how much it is but i've had a conversation about dansby swanson let's go to the super chat ro thompson the family right here the problem is the yankees have a plethora of issues and it appears as if they aren't operated with any sense of urgency that's it raw raw you hit it right on the head that that's it that's the thing right there you could be the lioness you could wait for the prey to get close you could wait for the slick move but not when you got five or six moves you got to make not when you got that many not when you got that many jonathan alvarez family from way back in the day i wish sanchez nothing but success but it can't be on this club yankees need to prioritize a defensive first catcher i'm over it jonathan i'll pat myself on the back i'll pat felix on the back and tell you guys that we've said it for years now because we have that that's not even taking credit for get credit i don't care about credit it was obvious it was obvious to me back in the day when i heard what i heard i was like oh [ __ ] they got a problem here and if you don't believe me you could go back to i think it was mlb.com scouting report on gary sanchez before he got there right before he got there my understanding of it was that even in a scouting report i read it recently this is before he came up and did what he did in the in the scouting report excuse me and the scouting reporter even says they don't know if he could consistently stay at catcher because of his work ethic or wanting to be a catcher the actual heart of wanted to be a catcher playing that position there was rumors that even then he wouldn't do it so we'll see yeah guys i'll be honest with you like i said before i'm i'm not gonna tweet that out as of right now just because i haven't cooperated with anybody else but the person who told me is is usually very very spot on so again that could just be a hey we want to check in to see what's available what options we have is it a possibility it could be one of those but that's again something that gm's do doesn't mean there's loads of interest it doesn't mean it's something that could happen but that that's exactly what a gm would do that's the type of moves gm's look to do you know you you figure out what's out there and what's a possibility so i'm sorry i'm just messaging back real quick um but again that's where it is and guys we have almost 300 people in here can we please get those likes up i would love to hit 200 today um i would love to hit 200 today while we're in here we probably got about 20 or so minutes to go and we will go from there sanchez bat aged 12 years in three years yeah there was there was definitely a little bit concerned there uh my concern is that cash probably not even on the hot seat considering they let him yeah i mean you know it's almost like family my understanding is and again i get some information on that i probably have a lot more information come next week um after i get back um after i get back from some travel which you guys will know a lot about what i'm doing uh probably on thursday night thursday night is it thursday yeah thursday night thursday night next week um you guys will probably know a lot of what's uh of what's going on and what i'm doing and and some pretty fun stuff that's going on next week um but i should get a lot of good information um out of all that stuff but yeah i mean i mean those are the those are those are the concerns right now who do i prefer in centerfield reynolds and mullins either one of them if that was the case either one of them could tell martay i would take him in a heartbeat but look let me even send something back to you guys if the yankees came today and they said all right look um maybe we add robbie ray maybe we had trevor story with that being said here's what we have to do though and we also add a decent a decent catcher center field we are gonna have floriel fight for that spot in spring training so there could be a a a platoon situation where we make that work and i'm i'm very much okay with that i'm very much okay with that and that's the thing that i've been telling people i'm not the yankee fan that's saying we need to get correa we need to get rey we need to get all the top guys if we don't do that i'm not angry we just have so many damn moves that we can make in an off season where there is loads of talent available free agency and via trade and you got the prospect capital to do it and you got the money to make signings when you can do all that you got to be able to go out there and do it it's as simple as that it's as simple as that so yeah yankee fans have every right in the world to be upset yeah i don't think mullins could happen and i'm just keeping it real i don't think mullins could happen i i don't i don't think mullins necessarily happens i don't think it would one because of what of what it would take on the yankees side and i don't see i don't see brian cashman ever giving up what it would take to get mullins to the rival orioles and by all means their rival because the only team they beat up on is the yankees so i don't think brian cashion wants to make that much better in the years to come when he got a lot of good guys coming up so you know what i mean we'll see what happens there darius says anything big likely comes today or tomorrow or today or tomorrow teams have until wednesday however uh teams have to get physicals and paperwork all done by wednesday at midnight which takes time that is correct so you're right you're definitely right you probably got today and tomorrow to really get things done and then you got all the work to do after that so you're probably looking at the weekend to be somewhat popular maybe monday a little bit to go from there mullins is a one-year wonder i think that's a hard one to say i think there might be a little bit of an adjustment period but i wouldn't necessarily say mullen's gonna be a one-year wonder yankee fans love to say that about players i noticed that robbie ray's a one-year wonder mullen's a one-year wonder reynolds isn't that good martay is too old blah blah blah blah blah but our guys are great come on fam come on stop it stop it stop it jonathan alvarez my good friend thank you so much again for the super chat fam cashman and hal are asleep while the other team's feasting on free agents and yankees will get up just in time to pick up the crumbs left over it's concerning man like i said if you if you're looking for the one big move you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you are looking for the one big move you could certainly be the lioness waiting for the hunt you can do that you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you're waiting for that one move you got every chance in the world and every opportunity in the world do that if you got multiple moves to make you really got to get a ball you really got to get a go on it you got to get a go on it because guys i could i could go over this in multiple different ways and i'll do it right after i read this super chat from li yankee king hey if i ran this team i would have already traded dj hicks stanton chapman holmes lucky peralta rodriguez tayon sanchez voigt brought in prospects to help us and i would have offered one year 30 million a story but li yankee king that makes no sense and i got to keep it real with you that makes no sense at all you're trading all of your good players away a lot of your salary i get that but you're trading a lot of your plays that help you win now for one guy that's not gonna help you win now because of all the moves you made lord why did you burden me with this oh my god i had i couldn't pick i couldn't be older and talk about the yankees on youtube when the dynasty is i had to choose now i had to choose the yankees now fam you're training everybody you're training everybody to give 30 million a story i love trevor's story but you got to put him on he can't beat a guy what do you want what are you doing mushrooms oh my god why why do i do this why do i do this for the love i do it for the love i do it for the love of my yankees i do it for the love of my yankees i do it for the love you have our affirmation that's my affirmation fam you trading everybody and most of those guys you have to pay all that contract gonna have to pay most of those guys contract to move them and on top of that then you're going out to give 30 million dollars to one player what do you do jonathan vr would be a terrific pickup jonathan vr will be a terrific pickup my man on mushrooms my man is on mushrooms my man is on mushrooms my man is straight up on mushrooms he's hallucinating right now ed kemp manaya roberto perez modesty rizzo olson those are a lot of moves and and and you know that was the expectation going into this that was the expectation going into this well ella yankeeking has cracked my code i can't have him do a super chat and not answer it i can't so ella yankee king has cracked my code i can't be an [ __ ] like that i can't be an [ __ ] like that there he goes again ella yankee i also would have traded for heim yamamoto means signed rey signed judge and rizzo all that stuff's not that easy man all that stuff's not that easy so anyway i read it i read it lie i read it i read it i read it you got me you cracked my code thank you for supporting that wide news i greatly appreciate it jorge no no word on jose ramirez none none whatsoever no news at all jose ramirez i actually shocked i thought that would be i actually thought there would be a lot more rumors about jose ramirez but um no nothing at all yet so nothing at all yet on that one um let me see something here guys one second i just want to make sure i get updated where everything that i have right now um no that is nothing good okay all right all right all right all right cool cool cool cool um olsen bassett kelly marte is where i think the yankees are trying to shop those would all be terrific those would all be terrific those would all be terrific i don't even think hell knows how to run a business bro how do you throw how do you throw down like your dad 10 million to 5 billion he made a lot of mistakes how pony up you know it's hard look i understand one of the i understand you're in a big look i understand house thing you know you're in a big big shadow everybody expects you to be your father maybe you see things differently and that's okay so it's not about spending money it's about the way the yankees have spent the money so the payroll is still large but look at the way the yankees have spent the money that's the problem that's the problem that's the major issue it's not that the yankees are cheap or anything like that it's that they have spent the money the wrong way that's the problem the problem is how they've spent the money why do yankees not in on either floriel or suzuki suzuki i honestly i don't know much about floriel on the other hand i mean i would be happy with florio starting it's like i've told people before floriel bats low okay you bat him low in the order he has great speed he's gonna steal 20 plus bases i believe he's gonna hit 20 plus home runs because he got power like that to all fields plays a great defense has a great arm why would you not let a guy like this play at the major league level right now why would you not give him that opportunity over aaron hicks who is now playing winter ball you could show teams that look he's healthy he's playing maybe you could trade them maybe you could add a decent prospect maybe you could add a decent prospect and move on from tyler says sign vr who i would love sign seeger sign rey trade for olson midday madaya sign suzuki for center field trade sanchez get stallings in a trade you know that's a lot of moves there and a lot of different things that could happen but we'll see but but we'll see you know those are moves that could happen those are somewhat realistic a lot of those i don't know if they spend the money on both of those guys on sega and ray but they could but these are things that could happen so it's not like none of these things are unrealistic you know you talk about some of these trades and everybody feels like it's unrealistic it's not it's not necessarily unrealistic that's the thing that's the thing i don't see sure coming to new york unless the yankees blow them away and again guys i don't see that jonathan alvarez my fan my my my fam thank you so much i appreciate that man pete no matter what god is good and is always faithful facts that is 100 correct my friend that is 100 correct and i greatly appreciate that i greatly appreciate that um so let's see let's see let's see let's see let me just update this here i just got to keep checking my messages i am getting messages um right that's just my team nothing there nothing there all right cool um but we'll see man we'll see um yeah whoever just said uh gaussman to the mets per sources i don't know if it's done yet but i was told i think i said it once this uh once this started that gosmen to the mets is very likely i was told yesterday too they've been discussing a deal for a couple of days and a lot of people expected to get done so the mets may make another big deal today no this yankee team is not a world series team right now nowhere near it every other team is getting much better hey pete what would it take for the yankees to trade for joey bart involving gary sanchez well probably a ton because uh bart is likely gonna be the starting catcher um you know he's likely gonna get a chance to start um he's he's one of the top catching prospects in baseball i don't see any scenario where the giants give him up i don't see any especially not for gary sanchez the giants are looking to win a world series the yankee the giants are looking to win a world series so yeah adam king is likely just taking what i what i'm saying and and posting it because he's uh he's a little bit nuts he's a little bit nuts think a move happens before a lockout i actually do i do think a move happens before the lockout i do think a move happens before the lockout what move it is i don't know to be honest and to be honest rumors have been light rumors have been light usually by this time i get a lot of good information i haven't had much i got more information from other clubs than i've got mainly for the yankees so rumors have been light rumors have been light cohen's about to have another hold my beer yeah cohen's the type of dude that makes that makes deals like cracking uh walnuts and he just sits there down in peanuts and [ __ ] and he just i get him on the phone yeah go ahead off from it ah throw it up by 10. i just saw that it's actually the first thing that popped up my screen to yes network you know what your phone needs right now a little brick gardener that's what oh my god to me i tell you guys i tell you guys uh wow wow wow wow wow wow oh my goodness guys well with that being said fam marlins look marlins make i know a wonderful trading partner with the yankees the marlins make a wonderful trading partner with the yankees gary sanchez luke voight miguel anduhar and i know a lot of teams aren't sure about the dh international league but that's apparently one of the things they actually all agree on so my understanding is in 2022 there will be a dh in the national league that's not one of the things holding anything up that's not holding nothing up so the marlins and the yankees make a lot of sense look a lot of these dh types the yankees have could make a lot of sense to a lot of clubs he's just going out there and doing it so guys with that being said i am going to get about my day we bought the the live christmas tree i'm not though is it a live christmas is that what you call it the real real christmas tree you know we do everything real here everything here is real even the christmas tree is real got the got the real christmas tree yesterday so we're going to put that baby up today um everybody going to do that we're going to have a good time uh designated spitters will still be sunday 5 p.m we will do a pre-recording we can't do the live um a lot of things didn't uh didn't work up work out for that so um we will do the pre-recorded sunday 5 p.m designated spitters don't miss it and guys again you guys know december is already next week december is already next week so the major announcements are coming you guys will see the major announcements of what ny news tv will consist of again you don't want to miss it you don't want to miss any of it at all you're going to want to be there and lie yankee king gets in right before i end it and i got to answer this pete the reason i'm trading all the players i'm trading is because the window is shut and roster is aging and i also contend it and i also contend this year i attached prospects to hick stanton and dj stanton got a no tray claws you know dj's gonna be hard to move and i wouldn't move dj dj is a guy i think that's a win now type player for the yankees and yeah you just need one now guys man you can't just go out there and say we're gonna reset and the window's not necessarily closing this team got a two to three year time frame to still win they just gotta win now they can't consider winning in 2024 they can't consider winning the 2025. they got to go out there make the moves to win right now they got to go out there and make the moves the win right now simple as that so guys again like i said ny news tv announcements probably going to be the week of december 13th that way on that day you guys will find out who all the new podcasts are who's everybody new joining um the the other things we'll be doing on the channel membership is going to be

hey everybody what is going on pete samnetta here for nyy news there's a little rumor out there today saying that the baltimore orioles may look into seeing what offers would be for one cedric mullins now people are immediately probably gonna say uh impossible can't happen and i'm probably gonna agree with you it's probably impossible probably can't have it but it's fun to talk about so i'm gonna come here and talk about this because why the hell not folks you would probably be hard pressed to find a better fit for these new york yankees than cedric mullins he checks all the boxes center field yankees have a need lefty bat the yankees have a need speed the yankees have a need versatil i'm not versatilium sorry athletic ability the yankees have a need leadoff hitter the yankees have a significant need he checks all the box and arguably it's hard to sit there and say okay well anybody even has been rumored as available who would make more sense than a cedric mullins makes a ton of sense in the world if you even think about it we'll get into what it may take after but look at cedric melons real quick cedric mullins is 27 years old last year he had a 5.7 war 30 home runs 291 average 175 hits 91 runs scored 59 rbis 30 stolen bases on base percentage 360 slugging percentage 518 ops 878. this is one of the elite outfielders in major league baseball with everything he does and no i'm pretty sure his second half wasn't as great as his first but still just an absolutely terrific season for cedric mullins he was an all-star we know that um ended up actually being ninth in mvp voting he did also win a silver slugger award so if you're the baltimore orioles right now and you're looking at this type of thing for a guy like a cedric mullins right you're saying hey you know it's almost like brian reynolds in a sense is that you're sitting back saying he's available you know what i mean and you mean with orioles you know we don't expect that that we're very very close to competing you know he could be available but at the end of the day you're gonna have to really knock our socks off here to make a deal work that's the only way you move central malls and i tell you what for the orioles it's smart if you're the baltimore orioles this is smart this is a smart way for you to do business because if a team does come knock and go hey look this guy fits our mold perfect here's what we're offering and they throw at you you know maybe two top fives two top tens uh four guys overall maybe a fifth in the lower level and you're like you know what where the orioles we know we got some decent young pitchers coming up we got maybe arguably the best catching prospect in the game we see what um what's what some of the guys on the club uh did this year your mount castles your your haze your mullens we've seen what these guys have have done and what they could potentially become if a team goes out there goes look we got some some you know starting pigeon prospects that are closing in that are getting close to being there maybe we can work a deal around that cedric mullins by the way is you know it's not like he has some big salary or anything coming along with them so you would have just about every single team interested in this guy so this is a very very smart time for the baltimore orioles to consider moving him and even flirting with the idea of moving whisk again teams are going to throw a lot out so when it comes to the yankees cedric mullins would be a free agent that's 31 when he when he's 31 years old that is in 2026 so you'll have for 22 23 24 25 26 so you're having for four full seasons moving forward and again for any team any team at all that is huge that is absolutely huge for every team that is something that you want so when you look at the yankees you know let's get to it i'm first of all i'm gonna say this right now one there's two there's two things here one i don't think the orioles would be extremely inclined to say hey yanks here you go they might be but still if they look to compete in two to three years they'd still be competing against somebody they traded and made the other club better so i think that's the hesitancy there and two brian cashman ain't ever gonna give up what it would take to land cedric mullins cedric mullins is again what you would assume the pirates would ask for for brian reynolds so guys you know when you when you think about the new york yankees you got to think about their top prospects the baltimore orioles have every right in the world to ask for the top of the line guys from the new york yankees they don't have to ask for anything less at all they could ask for anthony volpe jason dominguez oswald peraza luis hill clark smith austin wells trey ceni uh uh uh luis medina davey garcia alexander vargas uh everson pierre who they just added hayden with nasa westnesski um oswaldo cabrera josh bro i mean it don't matter you can ask for whatever the hell you want if you're the baltimore orioles because again if the yankees did want him they got to knock your socks off and first of all at the end of the day i don't see him doing it when we talked about on a couple of lives and on designated spitters when we brought up the idea of a brian reynolds trade we immediately said well you know i would give jason dominguez up in a deal like that because brian reynolds right now is kind of what you hope jason dominguez could turn into um he obviously has this huge potential on his back it's a lot on a young kid only in a ball very very raw to professional major league baseball so he has time to develop and you never know how the development could go but again you got luis heal who i think could be attractive uh luis medina who could be attractive guys who are you know legitimate starting pitching prospects uh austin wells probably not so much considering they got roche ruchman rouchman whatever his name is but you guys know who's if you're any interest at all in baseball the orioles got one of the best catching prospects in the game volpe of course to be interested in but we don't see him going anywhere at all but any of those guys so dominguez peraza heal schmidt uh sweeney potentially medina uh ken waldechuk uh uh yo andre gomez garcia i mean it's gonna take four of those guys if you're the orioles it's gonna take four of those guys dominguez potentially heal medina and let's say gomez or smith i mean if it's me i'mma win that kind of guy i'm going for that i'm a win now kind of guy i'm a win now kind of guy that's the route i take that is the route i would personally take so i don't know about you guys but again just as a disclaimer so everybody doesn't get the pennies up in a bunch and go pee come on you know it can happen this trade probably got a better chance of happening than me developing wings and flying through my damn wall right here alright so probably not gonna happen i know the yankees and the oreos made deals before but a lot of you know britain and all that was was gonna be a free agent you know you kind of had to move him mullins the auras could be like hey you know offenses is pretty nice you know what i mean our offense is kind of nice out there we could keep them up there again maybe some pitching comes along maybe some decent happens that we're we're a decent team in two to three is it's very possible you know that's very possible so they don't have to deal nobody same thing with the pirates they got some of the best young prospects in all baseball getting very very close to the major leagues you got to knock their socks off to make a deal and i don't blame them if i'm both them i'm sitting back saying yeah we'll try to trade them no doubt give us you know four of your top seven four of your top eight then we'll have a deal right why not cause because if we can get for the one guy maybe three starting pitching prospects that are close to being ready maybe one of those guys is more of a serviceable guy the other two could be legit potential you know one two threes sign me up they're not then we'll talk but until then i'm gonna say he's not available it's the smart move it's a smart move by the baltimore orioles team that hasn't made tons of smart moves in the past it's nice to see him doing something pretty smart but cedric mullins would be the perfect yankee pickup he would be the perfect yankee picker for their offense that's when you're looking that's why martay day by day day by day by day by day starlin marte becomes more attractive because he really fits the yankees well and you know got a lot of fans well he's older well the yankees aren't a team that's looking to win in 2026 they're looking to win in 2022 and that's the mindset you got to have as a yankees gm is that you are looking to win now not four years from now because if that is your mindset and you're playing it wrong and you're not playing to your advantages which is money prospect capital money and prospect capital those are those are the new york yankees two huge huge advantages over the club over other clubs they can sign whoever the hell they want typically not on their house a little different and they got prospect capital where they go make trades when they need to and they got these guys that are closing into the major leagues also to help them so they got the best of both worlds right now they just got to use utilize it that way the new york yankees should be the marvel character the juggernaut that's what they that's what they need to be they need to be the juggernaut they need to just be able to run through walls non-stop break through everything go look we're gonna we're gonna juggling out through everything that's how we that's how we run our business here has it been like that mullins to the yankees is likely not happening whatsoever but boy oh boy cedric mullins would be an amazing pickup for the new york yanks and really would fit them just about better than anybody that's available out there so you guys let me know in the comment section below what do you think about this move do you think there's any possibility at all and if there is would you be willing to give up a dominguez would you be willing to give up you know two or three of your top seven maybe four of your top seven eight nine would you be willing to do that for a guy cedric mullen sending those guys over to who could potentially in the future be a rival baltimore oriole team even though the yankees struggle against bad baltimore real team so i really doesn't matter but guys if you have not subscribed please go ahead and do so for your notifications on so you never miss a ny news video again i am pizza manetti talk to you guys again very very soon thank

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for ny news and as you can see it is off it is off so the rehab physical therapy process starts now six plus weeks six weeks or so um yeah a little a little beat up sore hurts um but hey i always like a good challenge so i expect a much better and stronger me over the next six plus weeks positive positive positive positive but anyway guys i want to talk about a conversation i had with an advanced scout who gives me a lot of good information on a lot of yankee prospects he does not work in a yankee organization got connected to him from a lot of other people but but this is his job his job is to know a lot of these guys that could face teams in the future that could come up and do some damage and no he is the the eyes the ears so to say and the guider uh of an organization that's what that role basically is to inform and let teams know whether it's they're playing against them whether it's trade value whether it's a guy that may fit your team down the line this is their job to know these things so i asked a simple question i said going back to 1996 when the new york yankees gave young prospect derek jeter the chance to be a shortstop now times are a little different derek jeter also wasn't in a time where free agency was you know 96 wasn't uh you didn't have four guys out there who you know will command a hundred plus million dollar contract somebody maybe 300 plus guarantee 200 plus on a few of them and be legitimate stars that can immediately jump into a team's shortstop role and become a leader or the star player team middle of the order bet not facing that so what i asked him was is there any chance that young yankee prospect oswal cabra oswal cabrera my goodness oswald perazza oswaldo cabrera just added to the yankee 40 man look out for him he plays shortstop third base second base anyway oswald barraza none of this is scripted always real at ny news guys oswald peraza you guys know i love oswald peraza i am extremely high in this guy and is nice to know that many others are also and not just in the yankees organization one of the reasons why brian cashman really feels like i don't know if i should you know it depends on what i'm what i'm giving up for this guy we don't know if he's involved in the matt olsen talk i would assume he is because from everything i've heard and you guys go back to my to our um to our uh chat we have eli who you guys know does a tremendous job on everything yankees minor league did a great job on the 40 minute ross to break it up news before everybody else and even just conversation that i've had if you're a fan of the channel you'll watch the designated spitters you see the knights at the round table personal videos i make lives i've talked very highly about oswald peraza because what i hear about him is phenomenal it's phenomenal so for the guys who don't know and i'll be shocked if there's yankee fans out there who don't know much about azwa peraza across the board in every ranking system he's either gonna rank two or three he'll either be ahead or behind jason dominguez and of course number one is anthony volpe but oswald perazza is 21 years old six foot about 170 175 last year last year look at these numbers guys 297 average 38 stolen bases 58 rbis 18 home runs ops of 834 on base percentage of 3 56 76 runs scored just an absolutely tremendous year for oswald peraza 26 doubles three uh three triple two triples overall caught stealing 10 times but stole 38 bases again um slugging percentage 477 across the board and as you guys know he went from able to double a where he was terrific to triple a he ended the year in triple a one of the things you guys again have heard me say a lot was really corroborated by the scout that i sent these questions to my question simply was this would the yankees not will they not do you think could the yankees give oswald peraza the derek sanderson jeter treatments would he put him out there and just surround him by some really good guys his response to me was oswald peraza could start a shortstop for any club in major league baseball right now he wouldn't need no more conditioning none of that again he could start right now with any club now he did say this if that were the case he would ensure that the second baseman is dj lemayo and not glaber torres the reason being you want to put veteran more veteran guys around that can really handle that position around him if you could kind of block him in with a giovanni or shella who handles this position very well and also did a good job of short stop peralta short and then at second base dj lemay got a lot of great voices around a kid who most people will tell you if they don't feel his bat is totally there yet the glove is he's smooth he's slick these are the words that i've said before and the words that he also stated to me oswald is a very good defensive shortstop and the one thing he mentioned is what a lot of the other shortstops that are available what all the money is available that they're not gonna necessarily give you is legitimate speed legitimate guide i could do 20 plus stolen bases easy now we know trevor story out of all the guys available is fast he's very athletic he compared him more to a story than anybody else available he said the one thing he thinks that he will become better than story if he ever became better than story is that he will make more contact than trevor story he's not a guy that needs to swing for homers to drive the ball out that's a gift he has he can drive the ball the right center field that a lot of people see as doubles he takes them over the fence so i asked that question for a simple reason with all the information i've been given i do not see the yankees dropping a major contract unfortunately guys this is no longer the new york yankees that we once truly loved and we still love of course but it's ran a little differently a lot differently if you really want to go into but i'm just specifically speaking when all these guys are available back in the day the yankees would have got them they might have got two of them they might have got two of them in all reality because they got a they could they could literally do second third or short and fill two positions if they really wanted to they could have done that with the mindset right now that we could potentially see correa go elsewhere and sager go elsewhere seeger leaving simeon and story as the potentially other big names that the yankees can go out there and get right i think story's a terrific fit if you go out there and add more pitching wise trades get a good catcher and all that but if the yankees were to say you know what we do have money we could spend on the the the yearly basis we don't want to get tied into it to an eight six seven eight nine ten d year deal we want to save that for aaron judge but we will do you know four five year deals maybe guys you know not at 30 plus million a year none of that stuff maybe we get some 22 23 24 25s in there the yankees go out there and let's say you know we think robbie ray and pitching is going to be key we feel like if we added um a marte in center field or if we make a trade of some sort uh with merrifield i don't know just to throw a name out there somebody that hits a little bit of contact moves guys over drives at the top of that top of that order a little bit gets on base more can run a little bit again starlin marte um if we did something like that maybe just maybe if we trade for matt olsen maybe just maybe we can get a guy also when i give it up haraz and then we can leave a peraza at short let him develop between two guys like a urshella maybe a kyle seeger they end up going out and get potentially i don't know i'm just throwing stuff out there and the dj lemayo maybe it's instead of trading a peraza to oakland they trade a glaber torres maybe they also get a pitcher in that deal so the main thing that i also asked was well what is the mindset of oswald peraz and he said flat out oswald peraz could come up to the major leagues and he'll do his thing he's just that type of guy from what he saw he just he's a professional ball player he doesn't see a guy that tries to be flashy he doesn't see a guy that that show boasts he doesn't see a guy that you know um um you know the saying that he puts his head down and he runs he's a gamer he goes out there and plays baseball so again i am not advocating i am not pushing for the new york yankees to just say start peraza what i'm trying to again come full circle here because the yankees made some good moves when they released the guys they released recently to add to that 40-minute roster they added really good players i thought stephen ridings would have been gone i thought ron martin mara kisio whatever his name is um who's it excellent i hate when i can't pronounce an italian name if i had it in front of me i could do it but i always forget it they added good guys ever since pierre we already know about oswaldo cabrera who i mentioned earlier in this video but if that's a sign maybe they do start going to the younger guys here maybe the yankees do say you know what we are the yankees yes but maybe we can also be like the tampa bay rays just in the sense that if we have an open position and if we want to if we want to add elsewhere because we can we can throw a peraza out there because we know we're going to add a huge starting pitcher we know we're going to add a big center fielder i don't think yankee fans have an issue with that at all it's just a balancing act the yankees can't sit back there and go we're not going to get these guys because it's too much money well unfortunately we didn't add enough so we'll just start some of our younger guys that ain't going to cut it that's not the strength of what the yankees should be doing the strength of what the new york yankees should be doing is that yes we can do the small deal yes we can make a trade because we got a good farm system and yes when it comes to big bucks we can spend it we got everything we got guys we could call up and play we got guys we can trade for and we have money that is the best you can have as an organization the yankees have it they just got to utilize it the right way the philosophy got to be the right way it's not that you spend 220 million dollars it's how you spend it that's been the issue with his ball club how they have spent their money we can pull players from this roster and go ha that adds up to 80 90 million for what and you could do that easy with the new york yankees roster so again i'm not sitting here saying a yankee shouldn't go get correa they shouldn't go get secret they shouldn't go get stored they shouldn't go get simeon you guys know i think story would be terrific depending on what he is i might try to offer him a big one-year deal but sticking to oswald peraza i confirmed with multiple people i know brian cashman said his glove would play up here right now his bat would the event scout i talked to said he would not see peraza really having an issue because of his intangibles because of what he brings to the table his attributes they're all there he said one it'll take an adjustment but he's made those he's shown him in the past he started off double a very slow he made an adjustment he made an adjustment that's what the best guys do they make adjustments they make adjustments he only had 28 at-bats in aaa 286 one homer but most people would tell you the legitimate competition in the miners is double a when it comes to pure talent there is more pure talent prospects aaa you have a lot of your your journeymen still down there guys that are kind of holding on to a last hope guys that are organizational fillers prospects too but triple double a that's why you see a lot of guys make the jump from double a to the major leagues because of that exactly so everything i hear everything i have been told if the yankees really wanted to go to the route of the derek jeter route with the oswald peraza they can do it they can do it again guys this is pizza manetti for nyy news hope you guys enjoy your sunday since there is no designated spit is today we should be back next week but guys tuesday night i'll give you an update there is going to be a nights at the round table so make sure you check out for that that is live so i'll be answering all your questions having fun with it talking about projected lineups projected moves what we would do

what is going on everybody pizza minetta here for nyy news the yankees make a move today on the coaching staff luis rojas former mets manager will be the new york yankees third base coach i like the move um rojas is actually well respected around the game um the position he was putting with the mets was not a good one you know what i mean and a lot of people feel that um he wasn't ready to be a manager yet or in that situation they had him in it just wasn't the best fit in the world but as a coach all you hear is great praises about him and look you know if he can do anything to maybe balance some of these guys out work a little more in the infield have a little say in what goes on um i like the start of where they're going with the coaches that now everybody knows i'm never going to be happy with aaron boone unless he really changes the way he manages unless he gets a little bit of pride and dignity back in his system and is able to bench guys when they don't run or go over and pull them to the side and grab him and talk to them you know unless that happens i'm not a fan of of of the coaching staff because of boone but they could do some things to add some guys i think luis rojas is a nice start now i was the first person to put the information out there i was told that eric chavez also interviewed i believe there's a very good possibility of be a part of this staff um i my understanding is the interview went very well so let's see what happens there the other news on the day that got a lot of people talking john heyman reported that brian cashman met with the agents of freddie freeman and and freeman and blah blah blah blah blah guys can i just tell you a little spoiler alert real quick if brian cashman didn't meet with freddie freeman and co he's not doing his job he wouldn't be doing his job the yankees have a first baseman now who would be out of position but dj lemayo could play first base they are interested in their plan their plan anthony rizzo matt olsen most people believe one of those three will be the yankee third baseman but why would you not talk to freddie freeman and kind of see how he feels about new york would that be an interest to him what is it going to take why not have those conversations i mean if he doesn't then he's not doing his job as gm you got to have option a b c d and e gotta have those options on the table so i look no more into this than just that he was doing his due diligence and it's the right thing to do it's kind of his job to be fair so i know john heyman is out there you know looking for clicks and all that i mean i guess they do that right the inside is typically dude i just got met with this guy today and whatever um i mean i did it with patrick corbin so i put that information out that he was at the stadium they were meeting they had a meeting set up and um yeah so i guess um i did the same thing too so why should i do that to good old john heyman i love john heyman um but really guys that's it right now you know um all quiet before the storm maybe i think by friday we'll see something done i don't know if it's olson i think the yankees are very very deep in those waters i really believe that um i don't know if it's a possible maybe a trade that we haven't talked about much but um i think that is very very possible we shall see we shall see what happens there but um you know i've also had a lot of people dm me about what i said yesterday in the live and even i made the video about that you know i've been told by four people now that hal steinberg is not gonna go out there and do a 300 million dollar contract with a shortstop and people assume that that means that correa or seeger is not one of the guys said they think seeker could get less than three i don't believe that i think so and the way the market's going so eduardo rodriguez get paid today what is robbie ray gonna get justin verlander might get 20 million a year i don't know how but he might so gotta fix this mic one arm guys it's annoying um but we'll see what happens it could be an interesting week for the yankees you know they got some decisions to make with the with the 40 man and non-tenders coming up it's going to be a very interesting time i really believe that brian cashman is going to have to clear some space um that's only really done through trade unless you just drop these guys which would make no sense at all because randy vasquez is really good as well the cabrera is really good everson pierre's really good steven ridings is good i mean matt sawyer is good there's a lot of guys on that list that are really good ball players that the yankees have to add or lose in a rule 5 draft and you know i i think i think the yankees will make some moves by friday a move or moves i think they're also going to really start you're going to start to see the coaching staff close up too i think they really want to get that out the way i believe the next one could be eric chavez uh we'll see what happens there i know his interview went very well as i reported but um other than that guys that's the only update i have right now unless something else breaks you'll hear from me next time when we got some more information out there if i got information to share with you guys i'll do that until then tell your friends family uh yankee groups facebook twitter youtube uh twitch whatever the hell social media platforms are out there to make sure they subscribe to ny news so you guys get the first and everything that we put out don't want you guys to miss anything so again guys with that being said i am pizza pizzamanetti for the one the only nyy news talk to you guys next time

oh let's do it baby you know come on come on fam fun fact about francis i actually lived in brooklyn until i was about 11. look at that look at that fun fact about francis i like that we should do that every now and then a fun fact what's the fun fact about me there's not much he said he said i'm not a fun guy another fun guy let me tell you something about pete he's he he he's not for the fun and games no he wants to get right down let's get the business that's it yeah that's that's all that's all there is to it if pete was the general manager we probably would have had three or four moves done by now because it's not about the fun and games it's like you know what i mean and on top of that aaron boone wouldn't be here we we all we all know that aaron oh you got me here you guys know that aaron boone wouldn't be here you know the most coveted manager apparently he'd probably he probably he probably would be managing oakland at this point or the message we got washington heights in here hey wash heights i love it i love it i love it i love it let's get into it let's get into it i see some questions on it guys like i said man throw those questions at throw topics whatever you guys want to talk about you know we don't care we don't care we're going to talk about whatever you guys want to talk about so if i miss your question guys throw it back out there so let's see where are we on the first one um i saw one here it is is seeger to the yankee still realistic or likely i say it could be both i think it's very well obviously let's get the first one out the way we're gonna agree with this it's very realistic of course we know that is it likely i kind of think it's up there i think it's up there um yeah i would say i would say seeger is the most likely candidate right now that's where i'm at i agree that's where i'm at and i said that too in my thing yesterday people were going like i don't think people listened they did my video yesterday you gave up so much information that it's like people went they ran they're running with like one thing so it's like yeah because i even saw a comment the guy was like um you're not a yankee fan if you want story and i was like i never said that i never see you you did you didn't say anything about wanting so you said that story is still a very real possibility which he 100 is yeah so like i said i've heard from three people so we'll see and i actually i actually sent some um some messages today so i hope they get something back but we'll see if that's you know if that happens and we'll we'll get to all that we'll get to other but uh speaking of seeger what's not to like you know what i mean there there is like i said there's pros and cons with everybody we know that you know um there's pros and cons with everybody we know what he does good we know what he does not so good we know he's not the greatest defensive shortstop we know if that middle of the infield is going to be him in glaber we don't know if it's him and dj like a lot more there's a rumor also that seeger can move to third base pretty quickly um the lefty bat is a plus we know that he makes contact that's a plus yep so there's a lot of pluses there for cory seeger that i like he's gonna cost money potentially over three maybe a little under three we'll see but um yeah i think like you francis i wouldn't be shocked one bit if the yankees signed corey seeger i put a i put it into our chat the other day uh just uh the guys we were talking i think joe or rb asked like where do you guys see all the shortstop signings so i i did a list i'm not gonna reveal my list right now because we you know i'm not trying to give everything out in the first five minutes here right yep but with seeger i still feel uh his most likely landing spot is the new york yankees for much of the things that you named already the lefty bat um but let me just to be to be different to add on to it right corey seeger off the field he just fits the yankee profile right we know that he does um i put out i put out a tweet thread uh maybe yesterday or the day before yesterday and it was speaking mainly about like correa versus seeger but not in terms of skill was terms like off the field profile like fitting the yankees and uh secret seeker just fits that profile if you look at him you look at the way he approaches his his work day in day out he looks like a yankee guy like that's you know i mean like he doesn't he's not ruffling very many feathers he's not you know giving you fodder and post-game interviews or whatever says all the right things and the whole thing about him not being uh you know good defensively has been overblown yeah at this point i even said that he's he's an average defender he's not some guy he's going to bobble routine plays he makes the average listen guys and you guys may not like this comparison or agree with it especially with everything that's out right there right now but in terms of like his glove at shortstop he's very reminiscent of a derek jeter maybe he's gonna say the same thing maybe better all right if we're calling a spade a spade he's gonna make all the average plays um he's gonna cover a decent ground uh there um he's not gonna make that many above average plays there but he's gonna make he's gonna make the average he's gonna make the house he's supposed to and that in it in and of itself is a huge upgrade from what we started at shortstop last night i was just gonna say that either way it's an upgrade at shortstop on both sides of the ball both sides of the ball now what um what i feel like is happening is that you have like you have different camps in in yankee land right now for the fans right and there's the people who feel like if i want correa to sign with the yankees i need to like bash seeger and bash all the other candidates yeah yeah that's not that's not true like i'm i'm a hunt and like i said we'll get to that later i don't want to even go into him now because i know that's going to be a good hot topic but i will say this my personal choice my number one choice would be carlos correa yeah but i'm not going to sit here and tell you that corey seeger is not a good enough option at shortstop because that's a lie francis i'll get this off the bat right now because i think we agree with this this crop of shortstops is so damn good would you really be mad about any of them how could you miss that's so here's what i'm saying we know i would always right seeger story correa simeon people [ __ ] on simi and how samia had a great you know arguments with me today so i'll tell you guys this today arby goes to me and goes he said in our chat he goes who'd you guys say out of all the players available who is the the what was some like who is going to be the most productive going forward and i said to be fair to be real with you if this guy continues who he is over the next three year span minimum simian's the best right now if you're going off for the most if you're going off of our most recent recent season now like i said i said if i'm looking at projection of potential correa yeah i'd say carlos correa has the overall ability to be better than everybody but for the long can't at all this guy no damn good simeon see i think with i think with simeon people are are underselling it a little bit i'm gonna tell you guys right now i don't i don't talk to very many people like i literally just because i joined ny news like by luck of the draw because i'm associating with pete and different guys i began talking to guys like hulk and all these other people but before they i never had a relationship with them but aside from what they're saying about seeger and correa simeon's market if you just put his name into twitter and like read simeon's market is very robust i would hazard to say i would hazard to say it might be even more robust than segre and korea because more teams feel like they can land similarly correct correct these same things going to happen with story the same thing is going to happen with story you know what you're not hearing much about him now but his market is going to pick up bro based on my video and guys i'm sorry for getting ahead because i know you guys are probably asking a lot of this stuff so we'll continue on but let me just say this real quick too the funny thing about story is i feel like yankee fans would be disappointed if they got him a lot of the yankee fans on twitter you see it like even in my comment section on my video yesterday i'm like guys all i'm doing is reporting what i'm told i've done that since i've started on youtube and i'll continue doing it yeah i'm not saying that this is the greatest option i'm saying what i'm hearing and a lot of yankee i don't want him are you mad you wouldn't want trevor story on your ball club why no they're gonna say they're gonna say oh well you know he he's a he's a big strikeout guy and we already have a lot of that in our lineup and i get it that's nice that's that's good uh it's good commentary that you stole from the mlb network from jeff fason and everybody else who says it but the fact of the matter is and i want to shout out reuben because he sent this super chat speaking about story awesome and guys i'm sorry to cut you off i just want to say this real quick guys we do have to get the super chats before anybody else because they go away so just an fyi if somebody sends a super chat we gotta get to it immediately because it will go away over time so if we don't answer your question resend it because we do got to go on with the chat there's a lot of people in here exactly no so what what reuben rubin said was the one thing i like about story is that he steals bases at a high clip that's something that when we're speaking about the other crop of guys out there story is in the elite end of that his speed is elite his base running is elite he steals bases another thing that's being i guess overlooked or undersold story is probably the second best defensive shortstop out of the crop 100 and no question no and it's arguable and it's arguable some people might not like this but it's arguable that he's the first best and i'll tell you why carlos correa did just come off winning a platinum glove this year you cannot take anything away from that but story has been elite defensively at shortstop since go since the moment he said go to now it's been elite not to say that carlos hasn't been as good but for carlos it's been a build up to now he's literally a platinum glove shortstop trevor story has like been so you know what i mean like it's like let's let's give let's give the credit where his dude trevor story he's not a pushover he's not a slouch he wouldn't be he he like i i the fact that trevor story could be a plan b just goes to tell you how deep this free agent is oh he could be a plan c yeah honestly he might be he could be he could very well he he honestly might be a plan c or d you never know exactly which is which was the other super chat that we got from anthony i think he said hey guys if that rumor is true of how not wanting to spend 300 million for either correa or seeger do they pivot and go to sign story well just to be fair so let me just jump on that real quick as i put that information out there my understanding of it was that it wasn't specifically story but that's the name that one person said keep an eye on um so it wasn't like three of them didn't say trevor store is the guy going after one of them told me story should be a guy we look at because the yankees had interest in them and a lot of the idea about them souring on him they don't believe is necessarily true because where the money would be the difference because i've said this before and you know i tell you what like if you look at that and again thank you um thank you anthony for the super chat um you look at a guy like trevor store and if the yankees say i mean francis you may notice better than i do what's his projection money wise under 200 million i'm pretty sure unless somebody blows it out the water trevor's story yeah yeah trevor's story is not projected to get more than 230 million which like 230 240 so on the high end and this is the high end that i've seen for projections the high end is 240. on the low end there's some people out there that think he signs a deal of like 185 million and i mean look if you can save 100 million dollars and again we're not making the money i think the yankees should spend all they want i think house should go up to 270 280 290 even it doesn't matter to me but at the end of the day if you add if you save money there and you put it to a robbie right you put it to a starlin marte can you imagine adding all those guys so that would be absolutely huge uh let me look for the next question on here do you see a shortstop coming off the market before december 1st that's from chris perez jr um i will say i'm gonna go yeah i'm gonna go with yeah okay i'm gonna say there's at least one big signing before the shutdown yeah i will say i will say i will say i am not 100 sure that it's a short stop um i think there's a big signing i think but i do i will say that i will say that there that a big deal could happen before december 1st i put i would put it at 75 chance one of the bigger free agents because remember there's not it's not just you know what we're paying attention to in the short stop class you have starling marty at center field you have robbie ray at starting pitcher you have justin verlander at starting pitcher you have max scherzer at starting pitcher you have freddy freeman who reportedly turned down an offer from the braves this week right they might counter with the right they might counter with the right number he might sign that deal that's a big signing like so i would say we're about a 75 chance that one of these big names signs before december 1st because some of these guys like i said a couple episodes ago they're going to want to know where the hell they're going in february and some some of these guys aren't going to want to wait like if i'm justin verlander oh yeah i'd want to know i could see i'm gonna and this may be a hot take this might not be a hot take to some of you but i can see verlander signing wherever he's gonna sign this week yeah it makes sense he has until what is it thursday or wednesday to accept or decline the qualifying offer yeah if he if he if he declines that qualifying offer at 18 million he's got to know that there's a robust market out there where he's going to get a couple years and the money that he wants yeah if the market is not what people are saying it is because i know a lot of people are out there reporting stuff but i haven't seen it like corroborated by some of the insiders right so i don't know i'm not going to sit here and pretend that i know what verlander's market is i've put out my own guesses but if the market is not what some of you guys are saying it is that 40 50 million dollars people want to offer him then i could see him accepting the qo this week yeah like verlander's he's definitely a case um noah syndergaard is another guy who could accept the qualifying offer kindergarten makes a ton of sense because i don't think anybody's going to blow him out the water and if you think about it with a guy like him he could be the best free agent starter next year exactly i guess that one year my i was i was uh i was super shocked that the mets even went qualifying offer with syndergaard just because like you run the risk of paying 20 million dollars to a guy who pitched like what was it like two innings or something last year like yeah that's really it's like it's it's it's it's nice it's a nice little payday it's a nice little payday for somebody who hasn't you know what i mean i'm not i'm not criticizing because the yankees have done the same if not worse in certain cases but you remember you gave him the qo and you gave conforto did they give comfort of the qo as well i believe so and they gave stroh the truth so it's like it's like wow like okay if you had to choose right who i'm who i'd rather like give that eighteen point four to strowman would be my god why because he he pitched for you no pitch right you know and he's pro and he's probably going to pitch again yeah now with cinder guard yes there would be teams out there willing to take the risk you always have to watch out for teams like the dodgers the padres always seem like they don't care what's going on they'll sign you but like i feel like the mets if they didn't give him the qo they could have found a way to like pick him back up in free agency so that was shocking but like i said he might just accept that qo this week yeah why not if i was him i would have been accepted i agree last week l.i yankee king in the house thank you for the super chat we greatly appreciate a fam yankees don't need to sign up big time sure stuff they have peraza and the miners yankee fans don't want to hear this but it's time to give the prospects a chance and spending money doesn't work for yankees so two things on that one i'll i think i can wrap this one up to be fair one starting some of the prospects i do agree with now who and what we can debate on there spending money doesn't work i think is incorrect we've seen the yankees do it in the right way and we've seen where it works for the yankees we've seen 09 but look who they got they got the ace they needed they got what they needed in 09 they got two starting pitchers who strike guys out one they considered more of an ace than the other one aj burnett killed the yankees for years and he struck guys out he was a strikeout pitcher we know that cece sabathy was the ace and the horse the yankees finally needed they got him they also got the best first baseman arguably in baseball at the time and they also traded for people always forget this nick swisher was supposed to be our first baseman and he had a great year in right field became the right fielder so there was a lot of smart things done so the yankees that year think about it they traded some prospects and they spent money that's what they have to do but see look when li and i love you bro but when you say things like spending money doesn't work for the yankees but that's their advantage and that's the problem that's why i get so frustrated that's why francis gets frustrated we talked about this all year long deadline and all that stuff the yankees have the advantage of having a good farm system and having money things teams like the dodgers and only a few clubs can really say the red sox the mets well the metsy whatever but they can do these things the yankees can do that it's the way you go about doing it is is the real problem here peraza look cashman said he could start it short now defensively defensively he could hit yeah trust me he can hit at that level all last year everybody told me they said pete this kid is ready now he could come up right now that's why i said at the end of the year i thought he should have been called up because everybody you hear from says this kick a hit right now at this level and be very good at this level so debating that or not it really doesn't matter but the yankees should spend money they should call guys up when they have to they should run it like the rays run it but with the added part that they can spend hundreds of million dollars in contracts so i'm really happy that you bring up the race because my response to li yankee king and not just li cause there's a couple of people that feel like this i saw somebody respond to a joe's tweet this week saying uh why do the yankees have to spend so many hundreds of millions of dollars to contend when you have teams like tampa bay who contend at like 60 million and i responded um saying it's very simple franchises organizations are built to survive in their environments right tampa bay has to survive at 60 million in payroll 70 million 50 million in payroll because they are bred to do so they were not bred to spend that kind of money they don't have that financial wherewithal that the yankees do that the dodgers do so they are out they obviously had to pivot to something different they had to find a way to compete so what did they do they went and got some people who thought outside of the box smart guys they got some nerves they got people who could get more out of less and that's how they put their team together they became a scrappy organization who gets more out of uh out of less and then when a player is reaching that moment where they get expensive even in arbitration they ship them out for the next young guy who's going to come up and they can get more out of for less facts the yankees are not bred to do that so as much as i i was on the bandwagon this year saying like we got to call up these kids or whatever i was saying that because in the moment we didn't have another choice we did not have another option you can't like in the middle of the year a big free agent signing doesn't normally happen so you got to go with what you got at the time and we had guys who were in our farm system doing well that i thought deserved a shot but in the off season we shouldn't be approaching the offseason the way tampa bay approaches and off seas of course not because we are bred to survive in a different arena our environment is the environment of the los angeles dodgers it's the environment of the padres right now it's the environment of the right that the that the red sox are in that the mets want to be in i mean they say they're in but we have to see right that environment where it's like this is this is the you know this is the casino this is where you go into that secret room in the casino and it's like yo this is the high stakes table that's where the yankees are bred to play so we are at our best when we spend the money i know people say ah but 300 million like why do we have to do because that's how we are bred to survive yep that's how we are bred to survive we i mean if the if the yankees are going to change that i mean this this is not changing change the name too then if you're if you're not if you're not going to be the yankees then don't don't fake to be the yankees yeah be something like i don't know i don't know why i can't i can't understand why fans would want the yankees to be anything other than financial giants and in new york city they make more money than any other franchise why should they be frugal and i underst i do understand where a fan could come out and go a pete you know they do have floriel and they do have peraza i mean that that gives you two guys they could put in there right yeah potentially they could but i think i think even me being arguably one of the biggest supporters of esteville all year i'd rather have starla marten center field if you could do that 100 i mean that's my thing but that's the power and the muscle of the yankees and that's and that's where the yankees have to flex their power like see the thing about prospects guys we said this time and time again prospects are nice right prospects are nice to hold them you want to hug them you want to give them a little a little they smell you know a little noogie they they smell good you want a little kiss on their forehead oh my little chase but here's the thing but here's the thing when you're the new york yankees right you do not have to necessarily bank on the hopes that dominguez comes up and does everything he's hyped to do when you have the money to buy someone who is already doing that right now do you understand so if the right opportunity presents itself it's good to have prospect i'm not saying i'm not saying that we don't need prospect because there was a time where our farm system was bereft of any prospects that people wanted and we were very unsuccessful because of that the reason that the yankees are in a very unique position this offseason to take the next step and further is because we invested in the farm system the way we did and we have a decent farm system and money the ideal situation is to have both why do i say that because the money can get you a shortstop a center fielder maybe a starting pitcher the prospects can get you your first baseman some relief arms and maybe a catcher you imagine making all of those changes in the same off-season and only three of the new players costed money because you got the other three with prospects that's right that's that's what prospects can do for you yep right but we can't we can't hug we can't hug on to them and tell them on our arm when they're in playing low a no come on guys like and that's a lot of the topic that we've had so i'm getting to our good friend ra ryan sends into super chat to be fair story has been has been the most durable of the other two shortstops in my opinion i'd be happy with a story and olson combination who the hell wouldn't who the hell wouldn't look the good thing about that you got some balance there too right you got a guy who makes a lot of contact cut his strikeouts down a ton in olson and then he got trevor story who i mean like you said defensively he's excellent he's durable he's been on the field he's a leader we know that we know he has that mentality about himself he's fast he steals bases we need that and yeah he's gonna okay fair he's gonna strike out i get it i get it he's going to strike out understandable everybody else our other stars judge and and stan yeah and look i'm not making excuses for guys striking out because yeah i've said it multiple times we need more contact matt olson does that matt olson does that so he he starling starling starling martinez lamarte does that and i saw marty risa that man is jacked no this guy he's a he's a physical specimen i would never have taken that picture that l'oreal body yeah i he was in a picture with gary sanchez i was like i would never have to i would never have taken that picture if i was gay gary should have been like bro when you post that just crop it bro let me see but let me see you before let's gary sanchez gary sanchez look look like a cab driver standing next to this man like what are you this man has biceps out to hear the shoulders i mean he looks like a man athlete i was just like yo put the pinstripes on homie right now people want to tell me that this guy's 32. do you know at the age of 32 he is way more in shape and athletic than glebe torres 24 year old ass like what are we talking about labor tours and those new pictures look like he's getting a little chunk on him he i hope that he has a little chunk on him there i think i think he should be going back he should be going the opposite way but i don't we'll see reuben comes through again with the super chat ruben says one starling martay two trevor story three judge equals havoc on the bases and many many many runs bro i would fall out flat on my face if that's what the yankees ever ran out there yeah no that would be great now let me better watch this starlin martay trevor story judge olson stanton gallow stalin's whoever the hell else is out there cause i can't say gary i ain't even saying i knew starlings was coming but can you think about that though martay story judge olson stanton stop it and and a healthy dj lament are we allowed to win that much that is winning listen man i want to tell you guys look it's not uh it's not it's not it's not out of the realm of possibility that we don't end up with correa or seeger like and it's not it's not just it could it could it could be you know that you know what pete reported in the video from yesterday is 100 accurate and hal says look i already got stanton on a contract that's 300 that i'm paying off we just signed cole on a contract that's 300 that i'm paying off i gotta resign judge i got a resigned judge i want financial flexibility in case an opportunity presents itself in the future i just don't want to do this and maybe and maybe that's what they say and maybe they don't go to one of those guys story would be a phenomenal fallback option francis simeon you know that bowdoin projects simeon to only get a five-year deal worth hundred and forty eight million do you have that that's stupid i mean if you can guarantee me and i i would i would probably bet more it's because of age that he has three a minimum of three good years if you simeon yeah simeon i would i would i would bet with you i would bet the same way if somebody tells me that i'd be like all right so he's a he literally is 1a if that's his salary there's nobody better no yeah it's listen if because here's the thing if we are of if we are subscribing to the belief that anthony volpe is as box office are they as they are telling us that he is he is only about another year two years away maybe maybe maybe that would mean that we could afford to sign someone who is going to be here for the next couple of years and then slide over or transition when volpe comes up right if that is the case now for me personally francis the ideal situation for that is to sign seeger why because many people say that he's going to do better at third base anyway right his range is limited as a short stop he doesn't really whatever but at third base he could probably be really successful facts well you know what him at third volpe at short i think i like my chances i think i love i think i love my channel but that's the thing and that's what i was saying before like when you said about who you know whoever they sign this is the best offseason to get away with being like we didn't want to spend three you don't even got to say it no the yankees came out and were like guys you know we looked at everything we looked at all the guys available we truly feel story was the best option we truly feel that simeon was the best option you could make that case without anybody get it mad i know i think i'll tell you right now if cashman comes out and says that people can't get upset like for for simeon especially with simeon you can't get do you know the simeon was the heart and soul of the toronto team this year yeah simeon was the heart and soul he was just going into the room that's it one one of the best offenses in baseball yeah i think vladimir i think vlad vlady jr will tell you himself that if simeon is not on that team he doesn't have the year that he had this year no probably not i'm going to tell you i'm going to tell you right now a veteran like simeon is exactly what you want in a lineup that's young like the blue jays if i'm the blue jays i would commit all types of sin to make sure i got simeon back because because without simeon in that lineup next year they're gonna look very different people say oh it's just one guy it's not gonna be trust the difference trust me when i say it if the toronto blue jays run out the same lineup sans simeon you're going to see a different offense next year i'm not saying that kevin bisio doesn't take the next step i'm not saying that beau buchet doesn't get even better that vladi doesn't get even better that you know uh george springer you know with the injuries and everything you know tay oscar's a guy who's good i guess they're still there they still there they have they got a lot of thumb they got a lot of power they got a lot of contact in that lineup they got a lot of damage that can be done but simeon was the catalyst there case in point look at the yankee offense in those two years when dj mayhew was dj la mayhew and look at the yankee offense last year when dj lemay he was not dj lamey right it was a huge difference it was a stark difference and and we we chalked it up to a lot of different things we said there's not enough lefties there's not enough whatever let me tell you something two years ago we still ain't have enough lefties but that that offense was churning why because we had a catalyst at the top of that thing making it go making it go this guy was getting hits and almost it looks like every other bat every other day he had a multi-hit game he was if he came up with runners on base it's just like okay add to the score because he's about to when he wasn't doing that you saw the difference so i feel like simeon's a guy that if you're toronto it's like dude you really don't want to lose this guy but you're going to have a lot of competition to sign him a lot well i'm surprised it took this long even though taco nacho was sending it multiple times so taco nacho thank you for following the rules that we were saying he says pete how serious is the whole olsen thing and do you think we can get a trade done this week remember paxton was traded this week a couple of years ago uh how serious is it i think it's extremely serious i think the yankees recognize that olsen is available and i think he also recognized that they can get them i think i think all that is obvious now the question comes to right now how many you know what are the offers looking like right now because i've seen people come out and go well um what's basically happening is that uh there's not enough interest in olson that's stupid that's i'll tell you right now that is stupid if you believe that there's not enough interest in matt olsen i got a bridge to sell you now is it true that it could be possible that they're not getting the offers they expect that is very possible that is very very possible we know the brewers will be involved we know boston's involved we know the yankees are involved we know to be many of the mariners could also be in there could be a lot of teams out there that could be really interested in matt olsen so just saying that they should look as they should as they should be yankees interest yes it is very serious i think everybody knows that by now i think that could very very much happen we don't know what it would look like i'd be i wouldn't be shocked one bit if it happened any time soon now to answer your question could it happen by friday it actually could it actually could and that's not me just saying it because there's actually some evidence that could back that up a little bit when it comes to rosters and you know putting some non-tenders and things like that you got to get some of these guys on the roster you got to move some of these other guys so very very interesting uh when it comes to matt olsen i wanna just i think pete said everything there when it comes to matt also i just want to piggyback off that and say yes 100 the interest is a thousand percent real in matt olsen because he fits so many different ways one one he doesn't cost anything right as much as people are predicting the yankees to go blow through the threshold and everything i also agree that they will blow through the threshold but the yankees are still hal's yankees and house yankees love to get a steal whenever they can matt olson matt olson is the prototypical steal this guy is arguably one of the best first baseman in the game he's a left-handed bat i mean he checks off so many boxes that the yankees don't have right now that is just like it makes all the sense in the world so of course of course they're in on it i mean i and i don't think uh cashman did anything to dispel that or anything i mean obviously some of the interviews that came out he's not going to show his hand guys he's he yeah i mean that would be stupid i just got to tell my yankee fan something real quick for some of you who are like well pete that could happen because cashman said this guy stop it yeah i mean i don't i don't even you know when you when somebody says somebody to me i just go i just say in my head yeah you haven't watched for long it's impossible that you've watched for long do you know many times if cashman has said what he truly believes how different these rosters would be yeah bubba crosby would have been on center field we never would have got johnny damon and that's just one there there's tons of options tons of times that cashman has went out and said something again the deadline we will go over if we have to then he comes out well we wanted to stay under and uh okay we we know that you're not giving your hand up makes sense you know so i i think that could be also a problem for oakland they kind of gave their hand up already they showed they showed so teams like the yankees are going to proceed with caution why because they're like look the one thing i don't want to do is bid against myself now i'm not saying i'm not saying please pay attention i'm not saying the yankees are the only ones in on matt olsen because i think that that would be a bit of an ignorant take matt olson is one of the best first basemen in baseball he costs nothing and he has two years of control left there are definitely a lot of suitors interested in matt olsen right yeah what i'm saying is the yankees don't want to bid against themselves if they already submitted a package offer right they don't know whether or not somebody beat their offer but chances are no one has beaten their offer yet right so they don't want to bid against themselves meaning oh we sent an offer we haven't gotten anything yet let's send an even better offer and wait wait time out you don't even yeah let's hold on a second we don't even know we know that other teams are involved all right let's let's not you know be dumb other teams are involved but we don't know to what extent because while he makes sense for other teams the other teams also have a lot of ways that they can pivot a lot of options that they're looking to otherwise but when it comes to the yankees of matt olsen he's such a fit that cashman really has to go in for that in a way that other teams might not have to so him knowing that it would be dumb to say i'm just gonna like keep adding to our package offering you'll sit back at that point just let let it play out because what they're going to do is they're they take the yankees offer they wait to get a better offer and then they circle back to the yankees correct to get the offer that they wanted from the yankees in the first place correct but what what happens if they don't get a better offer than the yankees first offer well then cashman wins and he ends up getting him for lower than what they wanted to sell him for because they didn't get a better offer this is how the off season works guys it's a give it's give and take there's a lot of you know pull but it's like no gm who's worth it who's worth his weight is going to freaking say that to an interviewer in freaking november you know what i'm saying guys not like he has to come out there and say gary sanchez could very well be our starting catcher in 2022. even if he already told his team that gary sanchez is gone he can't say that no because it hurts his value that's stupid the same thing with hicks people got himself oh i can't believe he said that hicks may very well be yeah guys he said two conflicting things in the same sentence he said heron hicks may very well be our starting center fielder we need to upgrade center field you're right he said in the same sentence and people were like no he said hicks is the son he lo if you read both listen to what he said he did he was not going to do what he's doing he never does anything he never does cashman never tells anybody what he's doing i saw somebody say well he's he's talked about carlos correa so much you know he's going to get him because you have to you have to what if anything if anything the talk about carlos correa would lead me to believe they're not going to sign right exactly no i mean cashman well that that's kind of how it is to me that's the talk about carlos correa if anything is to build leverage in the seeger negotiations they're going to end up trading for alberto monday any second and then we're gonna go what the hell happened and that's it that's what's gonna end up happening if they trade for young as alberto monteci i'm gonna be at yankee stadium changing the lock so that he can't get in no offense no offense no offense but you don't you you're not supposed to be over here right now i know you might you think you're not that guy but bro you don't belong here what are you you're not that guy turn around back to kansas city tell the pilot to turn around you're looking to go st louis is that way exactly exactly like oh you oh you're looking for the mets oh okay yeah no no they that's in queens popularity you're in the wrong spot and i'm not just don't worry about it yeah we we send you an uber to queens that's junky stadium hey jenkins you thought city no no yeah city you looking for uncle stevie the team that doesn't have a manager coach that's what yeah that's in queensland right now that's crazy man so tyler tyler comes out with the super chat these are fun we got two super chats in a row that are fun that's really asking us if we would do something where if we think something's going to happen the first one is from tyler is a good one everybody buckle up for this one okay brian reynolds and jacob stallings for j.j domingue oswald peraza luis medina yoendri gomez and randy vasquez that's a big haul that's a really big hole but i want to give tyler a shout out on one thing tyler thank you for being realistic bro thank you for being realistic i'm gonna say you know how many people have messed me say peter what do you think about clint frazier aaron hicks and two other fosters guys you met like come on like stop you guys it gets me mad because i'm like do you guys know two things real quickly about brian reynolds and jacob sawlings brian reynolds is one of the best young players in baseball and he's controllable for years to come jacob sollins is arguably the best defensive catcher in baseball and he handles pitchers extremely well that's valuable guys that's valuable that's going to cost the yankees a lot of shkarol and not just money money and prospects also do i do that trade specifically i'll tell you what tyler man you have my interest i'd sit down and look it over i'd really think about it i'd really think about it i pencil out some lineups i like to know what else we're doing because now if somebody tells me this well we got brian reynolds coming we got jacob stalin we got centerfield and that covered we're also signing trevor story and robbie right i'm doing that deal i don't give a poo i don't give a poo i don't care about jason dominguez and i love him he's he's very very raw people people get very confused about that let him let him develop um oswald peraza i love him i love this dude i love oswald peraza i travel to see this guy this year okay next year i'll be doing f of opie i travel to see him i love all i would have i would not be mad if the yankee said we added all these other guys and oswald perez is going to be our starting shortstop you would see me only be like yeah maybe we could've got more but i'm okay with that i'm okay with that ballsy move that's a ballsy move i'm okay with but francis if a gm approaches me ben charrington approaches me and says hey here's what we're looking at this this is what we would do we'd actually do this as long as i know we added these other pieces whether it's a shortstop along with us one starting pitcher even bro i'm doing that i'm doing that all day now if that was our off season that's a i don't know i that that i would still have to seriously consider but i i don't know if i would be as jumping up and down but if you give me a starting pitcher you give me the short stop you give me that you you looking at a team aaron boone may not be able to mess up yeah listen i'll tell you like this uh one do i do the deal i'm gonna say yes without anything without knowing anything it's a lot it's a lot the prospect capital that we're giving up is a lot but i'm gonna say i'm gonna say yes and here's why is that without knowing anything what do you mean like without knowing whether i'm signing yeah yeah like an example you would want to know the other moves you're making also beforehand or have an idea exactly so that yeah so that's where i'm going me too here's here's where he's like i do this deal here's the caveat though like i do this deal knowing okay one this probably precludes me from trading for matt olsen because now to get olsen the only things left that i have is volpe and i i have to absolutely start any conversation about olson with volpe and if i trade volpe peraza and dominguez in the same offseason i'm gutting the farm system did he he mentioned louise hill too right no or medina no luis medina medina so okay so so he so medina's gone whoa but we'll see yeah so i i actually i actually agree i think if if medina figures out his control like his stuff is even better but now i know if i make this deal i have brian reynolds and i have jacob stallings right center field i have an all-star center fielder great freaking hitter pure hitter i have one of the best defensive gloves behind the plate who is literally about to take my rotation to the next level it's not it's not even funny it's not even funny how good that rotation is about to be because of this cat but i do know that chances are i'm not in the market for olsen anymore because that would mean now like uh medina's gone peraza is gone dominguez is gone for olsen now they want volpe and heel to start the conversation if i like i said if i do that if i do that i'm i'm gutting the farm system i don't know what i'm going to get i don't know what i'm going to have what if i need to make a trade in the middle of the year i don't have any flexibility now i don't have any big chips because i got i shot all my bullets in the winter that's fine that's fine because i'll just sign rizzo i'll sign rizzo yeah it's true i'll bring rizzo back on on a deal that's you know not you know long-term and nothing too too expensive and to me rizzo as a fallback option from matt olsen is a phenomenal option of course so i signed rizzo um i don't sign i don't sign one of the big short stops i don't sign correa and i don't sign corey seeger but i go even harder for trevor story or simeon right right because of the kind of team that i'm putting together now and what i do try to do is find a deal for gleber torres that gets me back some prospect capital so that i could replenish a little bit of what i just lost in the deal to pittsburgh and you could put dj at his best position and i put dj back at his best position and geo and george stays for another year maybe okay with that two maybe two but eventually maybe maybe sign donovan solano but eventually yeah exactly the bench exactly so eventually because of the moves i made this winter now geo in the back of my head has an official expiration date because i like i know where i'm going and he's not going to be a part of it but he's going to be here for now and he might he might get a he might get a ring in one of these next two years because of the team we have right now so i'm going to do right by him before moving on from him yeah but yeah i i definitely do that deal if i can follow it up with the moves that i just said yeah no definitely i agree and then johnny it's like you said bro my bad because it's like you it's like you said to be to be the yankees gm this offseason like yes it's true it's a lot of pressure or whatever but it's like there's so many ways that you could go but how do you lose that's my thing that's what i've been saying the whole like how do you lose in this offseason so johnny i'm gonna get to your question now that we'll answer uh some other ones there johnny says do you think we land olson i'll start off johnny i'm gonna say yes let me tell you why i'm gonna say yes and i'm a pretty confident yes here would it shock me if they don't know do i have anybody telling me right now they're gonna sign olsen no i don't let me tell you why i believe they will brian castron makes trades with few teams oakland is one of them they've done it before he's comfortable with being they they have a good relationship very much i could see the yankees landon olson two you got the prospects to do it that's not the problem three it's an area of need and it automatically makes your infield better makes your team better and let's also not forget he's one of the best players in the game so yes i think as of right now where i stand i will i would be on the side of a yes i think the yankees if olson is traded i'll say this i think he is a yankee yeah i'm gonna agree i'm going to agree with you there pete shout out to killer joe too for getting on that one first that's a fact that's a fact um i will uh yeah 100 agree with you there pete i think uh olsen is is uh is gonna the awesome deal is gonna happen i think it's gonna be done for all the reasons that we've been saying already it makes too much sense um and it's official he's there to be had i don't know how you miss out on a deal like this like when it's like come on man i'm not going to cost you any money it's like whatever they just just go get the guy um and and it covers you if you say you don't want if you make a deal like olsen there's a caveat to it where that kind of covers you now if you don't end up with correa or seeger because another thing as a result that you could say is look now we have this young first baseman superstar we have judge who we're extending we had this like olson's not here for two years we want to resign we want to extend him too so that's why we didn't go and grab a 300 million dollar shorts like not saying that that's what they do but now you can you can use that lip service we're doing here that's why that's why i love doing this live is we're just going with the flow we're going what you guys are telling us and we're building the scenario around as chris colon says i say france's footage yankees new gm right there chris listen man i wish i wish we could put a team together yeah it's great get the ny news team yo we would be out there talking about this all the time and and that's why i think like even when the season ended we had that conversation we're like well this offseason is the most important i've been saying that for a minute now because 100 you you don't it's it's you just don't lose in this offseason there's so many trades to make you could go 12 different routes you can have seven different game plans and end up with a way better team than how you started in 2021 i mean literally like it's it's not even close how easy it is to do that and and that is the reason why i'm up in the air right now like if cashman screws this up i don't know and guys look i've seen uh i think talking jake or whatever from john boy put it out and he had dj lo this is my team he got dj lemayo at third base and catcher gary sound like that is the worst you can get out of this off season that would be like the worst plan you can get first of all because three of the five infield positions are bad correct and you why would you why why even look see if i'm hal steinbrenner let me tell you right now what i'm saying to cashman he comes in my room and shows me that i'm saying all right here's the deal we're not signing nobody then i'm not wasting money just so you know i'm i'm the boss one i'm not wasting money what are you doing guys just so you know and everybody's entitled to their opinion i'm just saying that opinion is [ __ ] and i retweeted it and i said that opinion is [ __ ] because it is if you make all those changes to the yankees and you put dg lemayo in his worst position which is third base and you still got gary sanchez behind the plate i don't care what you do it's not good enough bro it's listen oh shout out shout out to ryan is in the building ryan beck shouts out to ryan bro listen oh and joe joe's in the chat too somewhere i saw joe listen what i want to say is this any and i'm laughing because it's like i i really have had it up to here with this any infield alineation that has dj le mayheu not at second base is going to perpetually irk my last nerve why dj the mayhew is not 25 he's not 26 he's not 24. dj maybe he was in his 30s dj me he needs to be in a position where he is going to be successful now yes dj mayhew was signed as a super utility guy and he is comfortable moving around but what we think at this point is that we just signed him to a six-year deal all right i don't think i signed him for six years so that he's going to be all over the place filling in we signed him to six years because of the two years that he gave us and those two years that he gave us he was playing more often than not like second base but he did move around to first and third that's true but his best position is second base why are we flirting with this idea of moving geo putting dj at third having glaber still at second and gary sanchez still still catching that doesn't help us defensively we didn't get better in the infield the yankees need to get better defensively guys this is not i'm sorry like this is not a a place where i'm even willing to like debate because i don't feel like i i don't see how you can make the debate that it's okay oh because gary sanchez is still gonna hit you 20 plus home runs who cares yeah that's the kick that is the worst how many games how many games is he going to lose us because he doesn't frame as well as the other catchers doing today's game because he doesn't move behind the plate well how many how many and in the big games is he even going to start in the big games the funniest the funniest thing about that post by jake to me was that it was opening day and that was that's a lie because opening day gary cole is bitching and gary doesn't catch gary cole so i was like he's already alive but see that is not when people bring up production on gary sanchez the first thing i say to them is this but you got gallow you expect him to be more productive than joey gallo i don't he makes up for it whatever production you thought you got gallow makes up for it yeah so i don't understand that but you're working on moving oh no one one quick point about gala before we jump on gallow defensively i mean just won a gold glove but we know what he's going to do with his glove out there in exactly on on the field offensively yes gallow is not going to be a high average guy gallow is going to strike out a lot that is true but i was doing research last night after watching that career interview because correa spoke positively about joey gallo in a way that shocked me and i was like okay let me look at it and i went and looked and gallow production wise right look at on base percent look at how many times he was getting on base in games down the street whatever he got on base higher than i would say more than half of our lineup right and he batted like 200 he batted 199 and he was still getting on base at a higher clip than more than half of our lineup including gary sanchez glaber torres geo rochelle aaron hick like hey oh please the people with the gallows and for all the people through that talk [ __ ] about dj lemayo the yankees was so bad he led them in hits so i mean everybody talks trash but we got another super chat here from mike m he said listen if the yanks end up with story because they didn't want to spend big then it's uh what it is but if cash gets the green light and money is closed i'd be upset if they don't sign seeger over correa uh defense matters um he said seeger over korea because he would be upset if they signed seeger over correa he thinks if they do money which i think we've said that too before yeah we really do spend the money correa is the guy to spend the money on if you're going listen my point with that is is actually short for once if you're going to go to 300 million then pay correa career if you're going to be if you're going to be in that stratosphere anyway just go and get the best that's it like that's that's where i fall on it i agree you're going to spend that kind of money if you're going to spend that kind of money anyway like just go and get just go and get korea how much i guess the question and i'd love to see what some of you guys responses is in the chat how far away in terms of years and dollars do you guys think correa and seeger are going to be because i don't think it could be 10 to 15 to 20 million maybe less i would say i would say 20 million max and most of the insiders are are projecting 20 million bowdoin has them at a 20 million gap yeah bowden's never he's the only one i think he's never right ever no he's wit i think i think he's off with with correa and seeger he has seeger getting more money than korea i don't i don't see that i i think i i've said it before i don't know if maybe i'm wrong maybe i'm nuts when somebody told me early on that he's getting 300 plus million i said he doesn't need like 275. i don't know i will see maybe i'm wrong i don't know what warrants him getting 300 million is it seeger i mean the same thing with correa i'm sorry yes you're basing it off of potential though i know these guys are good but you're basing enough potential people want to talk trash about aaron judge don't start on it because he's older and he's injury prone he's played more games than both of them yeah aaron judge aaron judge is interested i guess i'll save that point because i'd like to talk about maybe i'm confusing all this money stuff because france is me and you've had a back and forth even about verlander because i don't think yeah i think you're nuts like somebody said they're gonna would you be happy if somebody just said this i forgot who it was so i apologize but i did see the question somebody said would you be happy if they signed verlander to a two-year 40 million deal no i'd be on here right now telling you i'm pissed out my mind it's stupid my man hasn't pitched in 2019 since 2019 he's coming off surgery he's 30 38 years old he pitches with spider attack why would you give that dude 20 million a year you got to be out your freaking mind so so here's the deal starting from back with the shorts francis laughs at me guys 12 million no no friend guys this is he i know some of you gonna think he's joke pete is dead ass i'm not joking he's not giving verlander more than 12 million no look i would give him more but it has to be severely incentive based i am not guaranteeing that dude yeah there you go look he won't guarantee derrick derrick calls healthy with without spider attack my dude is injured and we don't know who he is you're getting an unknown right you could say oh i wonder i won the uh i won the the cy young in 2019. yeah okay and uh well you know i've done many things two years ago too that i might not be able to do today so what what does that do for me nothing i don't care so here's uh here's the thing right when it comes to the money and i'm speaking from a place guys of somebody who's like been studying this this uh this salary thing for like i don't know i want to say some like 20 2012 when i really got interested in it or whatever when was the jacobi when was jacoby juice when did we sign jacoby oh god i don't even want to remember it was like because i had just i had really gotten into like baseball salaries and things like that about a year or two before before we signed jacoby ellsberry jacoby elsberry was signed by the new york yankees in 24. i was going to say 2014 2014 2014 so then i was right 2012. i've been i've been doing this since 2012. right what what happens with the contracts guys is very simple right the market is set early on depending and then depending on your player com your player comp your player comparison that is where the market gets set at for you then a couple things can change that right so i'm gonna elaborate on so you guys can understand me because it's it's difficult to understand the reason that the market for carlos correa and corey seeger is starting at that crazy number of 300 million is because the mets were crazy enough to sign francisco lindor for 341 million it's because it's because san diego extended tatis for i want to get i want to get this number right i want to get this number right uh tatis what are you like a 10-year deal didn't he or more than that yeah tatis signed a 14-year 340 million dollar extension okay so what happens see what we don't see when this happens like and i was one of the people out there fernando tati's got extended i was like hey man you don't congrats get your money or whatever but guys like open your eyes because this this is gonna this is gonna send shockwaves through the industry when you sign a kid who hasn't proven and tatis is great so please don't misunderstand me but tatis hasn't won an mvp tatis hasn't won a world series ring right tatis hasn't had a crate like you know i mean like a crazy postseason run and when i say crazy post season run i'm not talking about a wild card game or a nlds i mean an nlds nlcs and a couple good games in the world series like i mean something like that tatis hasn't even been to a world series like he got extended because of what they imagine he's going to do as a player and what they know for sure he's going to do in terms of like sales and stuff right but 340 million for him 341 million for francisco lindor it just shows you what's happening with the market lindor got 341 million for the sole purpose of being able to say he got more than fernando tati's facts now now you guys now you guys might think no that's just something people said no no that is a hundred percent a fact 341 million is not a round it's not a round figure he literally wanted he literally made the mets go to 341 so that he could get one more million than tatis and he could be the highest shortstop yep so if you think for one second that carlos correa and his group the rosen group is gonna sit back and say that they're not trying to get at least 342 we have another thing coming no no question about it that's a win that's a win for the agency too exactly signed the largest contract ever at that position exactly exactly and this is why i keep telling people like with juan soto like as much as as much as we like some people hate him they think he's a fan of whatever we're boris or whatever boris is already planning to make to make to make juan soto the first 500 million dollar contract you guys might think that sounds absolutely crazy no it doesn't it's not lindor is a great player switch hitting shortstop you know saying nice smile looks good in the jersey he's good for commercials he's good for advertising he he checks all the boxes you want right been to the playoffs been there done that clutch a little bit 341 million dollars was a lot of money for him it was a lot of money for him but they had to go there because they had to go there because tati's got it yep and then the mets got suckered into it because he was there and he gave them a deadline and they didn't have the proper leadership kind of negotiating that deal and they folded they felt they felt the pressure of the fans they felt the pressure of everybody and they said oh my god we traded for this guy we gave up rosario whatever and now we're going to risk losing them and he's going to go to that that crazy mark of the short stops next year and then anything can happen you know what 341 fine give it to him yeah well now the repercussions of that is that corey secret's going to want 300 million of course and who are and who are who who are we to say that he can't get 300 million when francisco and doris sitting there with 341. trump can you argue like complete that's the market that's the most all they're going to do the market i mean it's all about the market you're 100 right now now who now no does that mean that i agree with the money that they get no no i first of all i fall on the same side of the coin that pete does i think a lot of these contracts are blown with i love gary cole i think that garrett co-contract is absolutely [ __ ] ridiculous of course it is it did like there's like we're paying we're paying pictures we pay gary cole 36 million dollars a year now and he plays every five days like it's great it's gary but but but here's the thing if you ask me oh so you wouldn't have signed gary cole to that d no no i would have signed him to that deal 10 times out of 10 why because that was the only way to get him and we needed him yeah of course but what i'm saying he was going to get it by somebody so it wasn't like you're blowing somebody out the water somebody listen if if we didn't give him the 300 or whatever 46 minute whatever art moreno in la was going to give him 350 or 360. it was it was going to happen so that's why i say would i sign the deal 10 of course 10 times out of 10 i signed it why because we needed gary cole he's supposed to be here and i still believe he's going to be a part of a championship winning new york yankees team so i pay him what i'm saying is that these numbers have gotten inflated and blown completely out of proportion and that's why we're in a situation where whether you think corey secret is worth 300 million or not whether you think that correa is worth 300 million or not is all secondary because they're agents and the players association because if you you guys think you hate scott boris that's the dead of worst the players association they're not going to make things you think you hate scott boris you don't even realize the guy you really hate is tony clark because i love one thing i love that fan says well maybe they'll just give a discount no they're there there's no such thing and they don't do things like that let me tell you something right now marketing value is something and they they looked at oh want to take this deal a lot no it don't work that way it don't work that way that's true guys i'm going to tell you right now aaron judge has come out on several interviews and even his most recent interview and say i want to be a yankee i want to finish my career like i want to be a community i'm all from 150 million let me let me tell you right now if the yankees come if the yankees come low on an extension offer or offer a free agency tony clark will die before he allows aaron freaking judge just to sign a low ball deal to stay on the new york yankees are you kidding me he said aaron we already bought your trip to uh to san francisco you're out he's like bro because what they're telling the players is and the players are believing it but it's not necessarily true and i'll tell you why after what they're telling the players is if you aaron judge who's one of the top five best players in the game top three top three in some circles if you take a pay cut on your extension just because you're 30 and had a couple of knicks here and there what's gonna happen to guys like michael conforto yeah that's right what's gonna happen to guys like byron buck what's gonna happen to these other guys well maybe he's talking about conforto getting 20 plus million a year comfortable guys comforto might very well turn i think i if i had to he might be a real sleeper too if i had to guess conforto qualifying offer decision i think conforto turns it down and goes out and gets the deal for multiple years making an amount of money that i would i would have been shocked if you would tell me he was going to make that amount of money yeah but because the market is where it is you want to look at you want to look at a good barometer for michael conforto do you guys remember the pollock deal to the doctors yeah yeah aj pollock do you remember that contract yep i do four years four years 55 million yep right that's an average of almost 14 million a year for pollock pollock had a very spotty injury history and whatever and the dodgers were willing to give them almost 14 million in a year over five conforto is younger doesn't have the injury thing i mean been to you know been been to the playoffs got a little bummer is he is he one of the top would you name him as one of your top 10 outfielders i probably wouldn't no and paul at the end of the at the end of the day he had the injuries but he had a good year he was worth it i mean he was worth the 3.1 war he uh 297 he hit 21 homers and only 384 at basket i could hit 50 home runs last year the reason that i bring up the pollock deal is to tell you yeah right i know what you mean comforto is about to make that pollock deal look like a steal likely likely and people and people didn't like that deal when it happened he's like oh you're going to give him a five-year deal that i would watch watch when we see what conforto gets watch when we see what comfortable again there's people out there who will pay him there's a lot of people out there there's a lot of people in the market for center fielders right now and whoever strikes out whoever strikes out on marta is going to pivot more likely than not to michael conforto facts so moving on we have a couple of super chats here anthony medina our good friend hey guys do you think if the yankees traded for rentals would it pretty much eliminate them from getting olsen yes i agree dumb question but only just saying it's never a dumb question my man and i would say yes i don't think they they would be able to get both of them i think that would be like france was talking about maybe you go for it you got everything and look to win in the next two years but i don't i definitely don't see the yankees doing that listen listen would i would i still try to do it yes um of course one i'm not i'm i don't have experience as a gm so say i was a gm this year i would i would be willing to play a little bit more risky because i'm new i'm new i'm not seasoned i don't have a legacy to ruin i'm new i'm cutting my teeth in the industry if i was the gm of the yankees right now i would be trying instead of even talking to scott boris and the rosen group about corey seeger and trevor and um carlos correa i'd be more interested right now in trading for reynolds and stallings and matt olsen and gutting my farm and seeing francis can i let me throw this out go ahead yeah you might be able to keep anthony volpe you're right laboratories you're right so you can start a deal with glaiber taurus and let me throw something else out there no jordan montgomery probably not because he's he's gonna have to be resigned uh resigned soon so i don't see that happening but you could start that with maybe a you know um looking at olson hey we're already giving you glebe torres domingo herman could pitch for you for a couple of years and he's cheap depending on who we don't give up is there a possibility of austin wells i mean you'll have the capital to do a deal so here's my here here's my thing and that's why i'm saying i would feel like i personally would feel like you can do this deal you just you just need to be you need to think outside of the box right and you've got to be willing to take the heat right yeah and you have exactly ready to answer exactly so you got to be ready to say this is why i did it exactly and that's why i say i would do this deal because i don't have a legacy that i can ruin i'm a new gm i'm just showing up here so that that deal that was sent to us you're talking about oh we're giving up medina we're giving up uh yo injuries we're giving up jason dominguez we're giving up peraza we're uh for brian reynolds and jacob stallings sign where do i sign send them get them on the plane you could be right now can i let me just say this too real quick before i get to the next chats there the next super chats and all the other um all the other guys out there when it comes to catcher people really really forget how important the defense is and i think gary sanchez is kind of you know no knock on him but people really forget the difference that a good catcher can make on a ball club i'm not joking when i tell you guys this jacob's stallings alone would make the yankees way better than they were in 2021 i'm not joking i have no jacob i just wish he looked that's our job here to do i'm not saying we're smarter than everybody else but we have a platform so for the people who don't understand that i challenge you to open your mind up go watch highlights look at what these guys do remember what you watched over the last couple of years jacob stallings would never be benched because a pitcher doesn't want to throw to him jacob stallings will block balls guys can throw the ball in the dirt and feel very comfortable doing so that is super important he also i think he has like the best frame rate in baseball too he's still overall strikes stole more strikes i think anybody in the world stole more strikes than anybody no pass balls none i'm not saying he'll do that again because you know once he has one or two oh my god it's hard to do but to go a whole season and have no past balls dude how freaking good you got to be the yankee and by the way too i think he's like six foot five which is very rare for a catcher he's really big but this this he would greatly improve the club so getting off that you know that's the thing you gotta think about gary sanchez but tyler uh pearson says much love from canada appreciate the continued honesty and raw content guy hey tyler man we appreciate that i'm happy that you guys are recognizing it because that's all we do here that's literally what ny news is about ella yankee king with the super chat i'll say this brian cashman will screw this up because he's a bottom 5 gm and everything i've said since 2018 will be right i hope i'm wrong francis i'm gonna let you take that one uh all right i'm bottom five gm is a little bit crazy i i actually disagree and i i've been very critical he's not a bottom five gm but yeah he's not one of i don't think he's one of the best i i don't think he's one of the best but right now yeah right right now i think there's a lot of there's a lot more better gms than cashman than there were in the early 2000s and things like that but bottom five is is rough all right the mets are about to hire a guy who was like an assistant gm a couple years back like that to me that's bottom five this is this is brian cashman like this is the same guy who had one of the better deadlines this year right so i'm not gonna say he's bottom five um and will can cashman [ __ ] this up this offseason 100 100 100 that's it's a possibility um again like i said when our when we did our first episode after the season was over for the yankees i feel optimistic that the that he doesn't screw this up because it's so easy not to screw it up this offseason hey can i just jump into real quick with something yeah so what i've been telling you guys a lot about when it comes to the 300 million francis i'm gonna tell you off the record who this person is just got a message and they said directly and this is somebody you guys everybody in this room would know knows his [ __ ] okay i'm sure they do not want to sign a shortstop for 300 million okay francis i'm going to tell you when we get offline i don't have permission to tell it from this person because they are involved pretty um pretty highly were and still are so i'll i'll stop it at that but that is now four people who have told me that they will not sign somebody with 100 million now again this is not pete saying that that's gonna happen i'm reporting on what i'm being told and that's another one i'm being told so that's um that's it again listen guys here's the thing and i know just just got it just now i know people i know people aren't aren't excited to hear that but to play devil's advocate if you will right the yankees already have the big contracts of garrett cole and john carlos stanton on the payroll they also unfortunately are still paying around 30 million for two relievers they pay aaron hicks 10 million a year they pay severino i think another 10 million a year like this is all before they have extended aaron judge an extension offer or signed him in free agency after next year um this is all while still having a team that needs a first baseman needs a short stop needs an upgrade in center field and and catcher right that a team that also has a left fielder in joey gallo who's a free agent after this year so when you factor all of that in what does that tell you that tells you that you do need financial flexibility even if you're the new york yankees that doesn't mean that doesn't mean that the yankees aren't going to raise their payroll up to 250 260 270 280 even 290. that doesn't mean that i don't want there's a lot of people who when they hear when they heard oh they don't want to sign a 300 million deal oh that means that they want to stay under the luxury tax again no no that these are two different things the luxury tax thing is cumulative of all the contracts that you have on your roster right a 300 million dollar contract is for one player what hal says if he is indeed saying i don't want to sign another 300 million deal what he's indeed saying is i don't want to be committing 30 million dollars to another guy right now correct because i already commit 36 to garrett i already commit almost 30 to john carlo i'm already committing another 30 to two relievers and he's also apparently a big judge fan so that he he wants judges to stay there for the long term exactly well he would he would he would basically the thing about how steinberg everything i've hear and everything i've been told i was told i think during mid-season when i put that video out literally the person told me if you get if you asked him right now to write out the 25 man roster he wouldn't be able to do it so that's his interest in the day-to-day operations of this ball club but when you're a fan of a player and he's a fan of aaron judge that's the one thing i hear about a lot that he really likes aaron judge and he wants to lock him up long term he has he has a a invested interest in possibly giving something like that to aaron judge yeah when he wouldn't have that with the carlos correa or somebody else right now well listen god that's that's that that's another point right because when you add up all that money that i was just saying they already have committed they still haven't signed judge to his deal and though we've been critical about the fact that they haven't started those extension talks and things like that or whatever make no mistake about it we do believe that the yankees are going to be in on aaron judge and try to keep him long-term of course guys it the only thing like it's not really hard to see the only thing you have to do is look and look at right field like the whole judges chambers things of whatever look at how long jeter was a yankee they never put a there wasn't a section in the seats called the captain's corner or something like that like for the yankees to go and do what they did in right field for aaron judge that was a huge huge thing that was very unyankee like i was really surprised when i saw that happen and i said whoa they really are crazy about this kid so that all says to me that they are going to try and keep this guy especially if hal says i don't care what you do that's my guy he needs to be on this team that means that they could end up even overpaying for judge as if they had to because they got to keep them they got to keep them so yeah maybe they maybe they can't afford to pay a shortstop 30 million 32 million a year right you know what i mean but maybe that meat look i mean that the thing at the end of the day is you can still win you know yeah this that's why i said and i i god i i i know somebody said recently pete you repeat yourself a lot i'm not trying to repeat myself so much but this is the off-season to lose out on a big guy this is it and i hate saying that because that's not the yankee way and i get it of course not it's not i get it but if you're gonna ever do it this is the season to do it because you could still make a lot of that money you could still sign a lot of these big guys i understand that the fear because look at the end of the day true true you know we could talk about money all day but we also remember they got to be the fear of how many years you're a lot you're committing to somebody here correa is gonna get what do you think eight years minimum korea signs between ten and twelve years and maybe he has an op-ed after three years or two yeah you never know three three four maybe and i mean you think six seven eight around there i think the same thing for seeger six seven or eight it's a big commitment to somebody that's a big commitment listen carlos correa just turned 27. carlos correa is going to get 10 years or more facts no doubt about it and i think corey seeger i think corey seeger is only like a year older than correa at 28. so he's another one who's gonna get 10 years maybe another year or something like that these are 10-year contracts listen i again i will tell you guys this if i had if i had you know my my way the yankees sign carlos correa and the reason behind it is because he's the best shortstop there he's the best shortstop there and i don't believe that cashman is going to make the amount of trades that it would take for me to be like oh i'm cool like you know not getting the best shortstop out there or whatever because i just don't see cashman doing that because he's been a prospect hugger for as long as we've seen him but that could all be different now we don't like i don't know maybe maybe maybe some of the stuff that he's been saying in these interviews is true like maybe maybe they are going in a different direction i don't know i don't see the actually i think a lot of it's going to tell us too when they start non-tendering guys i think that's going to be the real bright spot of being like this is the route this team's taking you know what i mean if if you see them bring gary back and they come out and just like you know gary's gonna be our starting catcher immediately right there i'm like guys pack it in pack it and go home i'm telling you guys right now i and i i've said this again gary sanchez is your starting couch it team's not not serious about winning and you can't convince me you could say all damn day that you want oh beauty get hit i don't give a [ __ ] he can't catch that's not going to change he's not going to be comfortable he's not going to become a gold glove catcher overnight he's not going to do it he's never going to be that he's never going to be that you don't need that you don't need that the offense from that position this team is begging for a very good defensive cash and it will make them so much better your head would spin your head would spin that's how much better this team would come if you just did that alone story olson or rizzo sorry i just want i just want to get a lot of these other questions in here oh for sure story olson or rizzo who would we choose out of those three olsen yeah if i had to olson for many different reasons let me tell you why he's going to be cheap and the reason why i know i know what a yankees but here listen hear me out if you don't spend the money elsewhere you got to spend it somewhere they're going to spend money they're going to sign somebody ray john gray maybe gauzeman marte there's a lot of different routes you can take with that being said there's a lot of different routes you could take roberto perez it's true you know what i mean there's another catcher out there that's from um richard just said that i'll sign roberto perez instead of jan gomes but even young gomez perez those are two catchers yeah people will see the 197 average on perez and cry but he's amazing defensively and he works great with guys i mean what was gary's average at the end well people forget that people still think he's an all-star apparently will will says story worries me away from coors well it was the same thing with dj lemayo and look at look at that turned out look guys guys a ball player is a ball player todd helton was going to hit anywhere a good hitter is going to hit anywhere you know what i mean carlos gonzalez dj lemay you guys good hitters are gonna hit baseballs doesn't matter what they play does it help yeah of course it helps but it's not gonna make the world of a difference listen i'll tell you guys i'll tell you guys like this me for me for me most importantly is not the most important like uh position right now this uh off season is not even necessarily short style it's actually it's not at all it's one of them at least some people think some people think i'm crazy to say that but what i'm saying is because there are so many options at shortstop it doesn't require as much focus and attention because it's really hard to screw up in signing any of these guys like right you're not it's like oh we ended up with seeger instead of correa seeger's freaking amazing oh we ended up with simeon instead of seeger or korea simeon's freaking a mate oh no we ended up with story instead of all the other guys stories are made oh god uh we we just got javi baez here's how we'll be mad i mean we'll be mad if they sign andrewson simmons if we have beef that'll piss me the [ __ ] off bro that will yeah then we have beef if that were to happen we got a legitimate beef to be like all right you guys had all this [ __ ] you didn't do nothing you mean to tell me you couldn't get one of these one of these five you couldn't do it fast you you went and got seven you got sevens you literally told us look no we packing it in early forget what what nah he said make your vacate make your vacation plans for the end of september see see jim jim duggan in the chat um jim was actually the guy who was like you guys are changing anything you know you're just gonna go on twitch you were wrong about that jim and you're also wrong about this we don't have a shortstop what are you talking about that is the no it's not it's not the main position because like francis just said you got so many options if you miss out on correa who cares if you get story if you miss it on story who cares if you get simeon if you miss it on youtube who cares if you get buys you have options there the point that yeah jim the point that we're trying to make here is that shortstop has more options than the other holes in our lives yeah look at the catcher to get better at catcher to get better at catcher that's a little bit trickier this offseason why because the number one guys that you want you have to trade for um a guy like stallings a guy like carson kelly they're going to cost if you if you sign one of these guys out there they're going to cost you got to trade for them they're going to cost and that wouldn't be a problem if you already had your first basement but you don't have your first basement right at first base you know that if you're moving off of luke voight there then you need to get a guy like first base is not a position where you can sacrifice the offense but you also cannot sacrifice a defense contrary to popular belief especially not when you have guys in the infield like labor tourists so first base either needs to be matt olson or anthony rizzo the fan base will accept nothing less than those two guys if dj lemayo is starting for his basement or luke voight by some stretch of the imagination imagine imagination is the first baseman next year that is a huge failure can i say one thing about that can i give a different opinion on that sure i have actually been on the favor side of if dj lemayo does play somewhere else let it be first base but you gotta upgrade everywhere else that has to be like your guys here's the reasoning we did this because okay uh again let's let's [ __ ] right yeah we got a great shortstop and we also got matt chapman at third base and then we also got starlin martin center feeling we had a robbie ray so with all that being said we understand we're taking a little bit of a hit at first base but let me say this too i actually think dj lemay will be better at first than people think he actually grades as the second best position at first base based off analytics and all that but would i be upset if somebody were to tell me right now that's going to happen yeah of course because that's not that is not the best club they could put on the field yeah no just to give a different opinion no no no listen i if if dj is at first but we upgraded that third short and second and center field and center field and catcher or three of those four or three of those five even then so be okay with that yeah that's so be it but what i'm saying what i'm saying right now is like look it's a lot harder to get it wrong at shortstop than it is at first base catcher center field right now because there's so there's a lot of different things you can do at shortstop at center field there's only there's a limited number of things that are available to the yankees at center field right now either we sign starling marte or maybe take a look at conforto or really you know conforta would never shock me comfortable in shock a lot of people a lot of people are overlooking them because they're like i wanna know why the mets or whatever you wanna know why he wouldn't shock me let's not forget who's running the yankees the analytical department and athletics love yeah they think he's gonna have a huge bounce back that wouldn't shock me one bit and i gotta answer a question here joseph i love you but i gotta answer this question is that under not our joe there's another this is joseph i understand i didn't say killer i understand your feelings on sanchez i feel that way about torahs but you always get scared when you see a butt we won 92 games with gary at the bottom of the lineup fam this is the problem you're only thinking about offense defense is friggin important i want to shout out christian too from the nyst podcast he said the other day on twitter he's amazed by how many people think you could put anybody at first base why do you guys not care about defense i think that doesn't win you games because they've been watching and fans of a team that hasn't heard about defense and on top of it it's like pop says i love when pop says this right pops always tells me this i'll call pops up and i say yeah people always just you know talk about production for gary [ __ ] says this what production what can't they not make up with another guy that gary sanchez gives all they got to make up is a couple of homers this is what i'm saying what people don't realize is gary hit 20-plus homers this year if we get matt olsen and sign trevor story at shortstop or simmering that shortstop we just doubled bro sanchez's home runs no but even with better defense and better contact and lower strikeouts the start of 2021 i always bring this up you already did that with joey gallo they already did it it wasn't part of the plan but the thing with the thing with the thing with fans is like is this peter and this this i had to call you by your government just to get this point out they've been fans of a team that hasn't cared about defense for over a decade that's why they don't care about defense it's simple as that yeah that's why they don't care about defense because think about it think about it this was the team that was putting miguel and duhar and clint frazier in left field and telling and telling us that was okay this was a team that had moved geo to shortstop at the end of the year and told us that that was okay this is a team that has played dj at third base and told us that that was okay this is a team that had glamorous torres as our starting shortstop and thought that was okay they put odor at third base told us that was okay they had gary sanchez catching and tell us that that is okay that's why they think it's okay but the truth of the matter is it's not okay just because the yankees do it fact justin can you can you put that again in the chat this time in all capital letters because i think i want everybody to see this your up the middle defense has to be elite that's what i've been saying and that's what i've been saying justin good looks i've been saying that the yankees have the opportunity you got the bet one of the best defensive second base in the baseball in the club already dj lemay you you have the chance to sign trevor story correa who i think are the two best defensive minded of the group yeah and then you've got a center fielder potentially in aaron hicks if he doesn't play every day and also potentially estevan florio we know how good he is offensively but you also got the option of starla marte if you get trevor story let me tell you something i'm gonna go right up the middle for you if i'm brian cashman i'm sitting in a room and i'm saying okay mr steinbrenner you're the boss you're the owner of this club by all means i'll see if these guys will sign for under three and we'll go with that route if not i want to present something to you i'm gonna just stay up the middle i'm gonna say a catcher shortstop and center field actually justin just because you said that's so good i'm gonna go exactly what you said and i'm gonna teach you guys something here you ready for this and justin just did it and he has to edit the things i need second base catcher sure stop and send a few i'm brian cashman i go to steinberg i say all right 300 million is not going to happen no problem we'll see what we could do but hey uh hell mr george son of george no your father george what the hell am i saying shut the hell up pete keep moving this is what that guy's probably talking about i never get to my point let me get to my point my daughter does the same thing too it's pretty funny catcher here listen to me now i'm going to go out there trade for jacob stalin's who is going to cost a good prospect maybe oswaldo cabrera a good pitching prospect in oswaldo cabrera great go do it jacob stallings shortstop i'm going to sign trevor story to maybe 165. we'll go a little high 165. i'll throw it out then maybe that's it who the hell knows i don't even care at this point i'm not even talking about first base but we have an opportunity to trade glebe tourists i'm putting digital mayo at second base and i'm signing starland martay in center field name me a team that got a better off the middle i'll wait patiently you're not gonna find one i'll give you a spoiler right now you're not gonna find one defense wise offense wise talent wise you are not gonna fi and look if the yankees came out and only did that and again there's there's other moves you know you trade labor for something maybe olson and a few other guys you got olsen at first you could sign maybe robbie ray maybe you could sign a john gray maybe a ghostman on the market maybe you could trade for a starter but i'm not even going i'm talking up the middle if that is your backup plan or even your 1a i wouldn't be mad at all that is a tremendous get hell yeah and it makes all the sense in the world can anybody really in the comments section sit there like pete you're wrong on that no come on guys look what we're talking about what we're talking about here is that defense is super important look i watched an interview with carlos correa last night it's about an hour long and for like 45 minutes they're just talking about defense carlos correa is talking about defense and why it's so important and why you need elite people why you need people who are looking at their numbers every week who does he mention by the way france he mentioned yeah yeah he mentioned and and listen to the guys that he mentions at catcher they they just brought up the catcher position the first name out of his mouth was jacob stallman's the next words out of his mouth was that he never even really got to see the guy but he knew that the guy was elite because he was on every website that gives you the analytical breakdown of people's performance and he and the team's catcher maldonado were like this guy's this guy's playing out of his mind they weren't talking about offense they were looking at his defensive metrics on the pirates a team that lost a ridiculous amount of gains but they were looking at him because they were like this guy is excelling defensively he's a problem like this guy's really having a great freaking year to the point where the host of the interview is getting upset because he's like oh but they robbed yadi or molina got a year but should have got it of course you know careers puerto rican the host of the show is puerto rican they're talking about you know whatever so there was this whole thing it's like yo yadi you know yachty's the puerto rican guy he's one of their big guys he's one of the big legends i get it but carlos says listen i feel you i love yachty tubes but these numbers don't lie this jacob stallings kid played out of his mind this year this guy was elite and he said it several times speaking about defense you know who else he brought he brought up joey gallo because the guy was like but how's that fair you know joey gallo he was playing right field but then he got to the yankees and he wasn't in right field anymore because they had judge so how does he win the gold glove for right field whatever he said he played more than half of his games in right field and regardless of whether where he was on the field he was a plus glove he deserved it i was like i can't argue with that he's right he's right he said why do why is defense so important why was winning the gold glove so important to him this year he said he didn't get it last year he looked he wanted to see why he didn't get it because according to all the stats that he knew he was the number one guy he went and found out that there were different things there was like ooze er there was things there was things that uh you know determine the range that you have and how many plays more plays above average and things like that he went studied it understood it and said okay so i have to do this this and this to ensure that i win the gold glove this year not only did he win the gold glove he won the freaking platinum glove right why do you think why do you think he cares about that he's already one of the better hitters in the league today he's already one of the more clutch hitters in the postseason today why does it matter well because i'll tell you why it matters in his words the defense wins the championship the defense wins the championship you cannot be giving away outs and runs because of poor defense that's in the words of one of the biggest free agents right now he says that if you're not prac one of the things one of my favorite quotes from that interview he says i see a lot of guys they go to practice and they're going half speed maybe 25 speed right they're taking six seconds to throw the ball in practice he said the average baseball player gets down the line in 4.3 seconds if you're practicing throwing the ball at six seconds in the game you have to rush it two seconds more why practice two seconds slower than you need to have it for the game no no you're practicing to lose basically he said i practice at game speed and i make everybody around me practice at game speed because we're not practicing to play the game like we practice we're practicing the way that we play the game and i was like this guy gets it yeah francis by the way guys let's not be overlooked francis became one of the biggest carlos correa fans last night after seeing this i mean he said flat out if you spend the money this is the guy you get you were sold 100 100 listen hi guys guys i'm gonna tell you i watched it i sent it to the chat i sent it so rb i sent it so arby could watch it guys i watched this interview and was 100 sold i said if i'm if i'm dolling out that kind of money i want to give it because his mentality is like the way he was speaking this guy is obsessed with baseball much in the way that gary cole is remember when we were recording gary cole and all that stuff came out oh this guy's always watching video he's always watching tape he's always looking at the you know peripheral stats he's big into analytics he's looking to try to this is basically shortstop garrett cole like all he talked about was different numbers different stats different and and he could quote people's stats off the top of his head like when he brought up jacob jacob stallings he didn't just bring up a name and said yeah that guy's good no no he gave you the numbers yeah he gave it up of how many how many strikes he stole and how much and how much less strikes yachty stole than he stole and the guy's like but yadi threw out more runners he's like yeah but like this guy's stealing strikes so that the runner doesn't even get on base i was like i'm freaking that kind of mentality we don't have that right now in the yankee i don't know that we do if we do it's really well hidden because i i told i put it in our chat last night i was like i wonder if glebe torres knows any of this no no i wonder if gary sanchez knows any of this no that carlos is talking about right now he's quoting it like real nonchalant matter of factly it's like bro where are we and i'm not saying that corey seeger is not that guy i hope that there's an interview of corey seeger out there speaking like this because i'd love to give him the praise too but that's that's what i'm saying it's like bro we need guys like this who are obsessed with getting better who are obsessed with winning championships who understand that defense can't be overlooked i'm really happy that joey gallo is our left fielder next year i know that he's going to strike out a time i think he's going to hit a little bit better average wise and i really think it's going gonna be nice to have all his home runs being hit for us um but most importantly i love the fact that we're we're not putting out a reclamation project in left field we're not putting out an experiment in left field and playing playing in a division with the amount of right-handed pull hitters that we play in and we have a project in left field facts facts i'm sorry guys if you don't get the defense matters it matters it's so damn important i mean look at the yankees winning the championship look what the first baseman was you know what i mean they had they had of course tino then they had you know you know what i mean these posi there's very important positions and it's funny because two of the most important are the ones that fans talk [ __ ] about on the yankees is first base and catcher it's crazy ella yankee king goes ahead oh my god oh my goodness god man i mean i appreciate the super chat but you didn't have to give 9.99 for that fam i'ma keep it real with you i'm gonna keep it real you said uh pete and friends i bet you cashman does this because he's a bottom five gm pirates acquired labor torres yankees acquired jacob stalls there is no way in the world that that happens one i love jacob stalin's fan but he is not worth he's not going to be worth global torrez and on top of that i mean the pirates have nick gonzalez on el cruz you know they got a ton of guys in didn't feel second third and short it's probably going to be covered for years to come they don't need yeah it wouldn't it wouldn't make a ton of sense right there um to do something like that uh if you're if you're adding i'm not even gonna i'm not even gonna start talking about labor to the pirates at all because none of that makes sense i don't think they'd even want them for brian reynolds to be honest i think they look more towards prospects that can help him now and in the future um to go that route but yeah i appreciate the super chat fam i i don't see that buddy i'm sorry i uh lie gotta love you uh we miss you we miss you on twitter don't know what happened to you there yeah why are you not yet throw it in the in the in the section down there why are you not back on twitter because i thought you came back for the yeah killed you crushed you killed joe killed you for a minute he came for you you came back you rescued you resurrected for a second and then you disappeared again so we're trying to figure out uh yeah super chat us super chat is that why the hell what's going on with you on twitter um but yeah bro i don't know this whole thing with labor tours i know eli you love glebe torres i'm sorry buddy but i mean if again if i had my weight laboratory is not on the yankees next year there's just no way well to be fair their best alignment doesn't have a minute and i mean that's just and that's true and that's and that's why because i'd rather i'd rather have dj le mayhew playing second base and i i am comfortable losing the potential of global tourism i'm not saying that laboratories is going to be bad we say this all the time it's like a broken record laboratory is probably going to be fine if we trade him somewhere else he's probably even going to be an all-star if we trade him somewhere else i don't necessarily need him over here trying to figure that out can i tell you it out elsewhere can i tell you why i'm very much against labor taurus it's the same thing for gary sanchez now i'm just being real because that's that's all we do here so i'm just going to tell you my honest opinion i don't think neither one of them truly care and i'm being honest i don't think neither one of them truly care about the projection of their career i think they both have talent and they're both talented guys and they just live off that alone i don't think you see either one of them we talked to kevin kernan right kevin kern never mentioned that they're one of the guys out there early that they're there early in the morning they're there this he said that you know neither one of them are anything special but he expects that he'll be back at second base but i look at them and looking at this offseason i don't like to judge things off pitchers and stuff like that and be like oh maybe he's getting a little heavy i don't know but i would like to see a guy like glebe torres that young you know really really look look terrific i like to see videos of glaiber torres working on things instead of seeing videos of labor tourists trying to model an outfit i mean even nothing together hanging out with all these guys miguel anders took two pictures one he's in gucci or something the other one he's in something else holding a bat and i'm like bro you know you're you're a baseball player fan why why don't we you know you haven't played in a long time why don't we see you on the field to shoot andew hartson bill he's actually been posting up some work out has he so i missed that so so mickey ander who i i i still love and i think you're going to have a really good shot to be a dh in the national league if somebody calls upon you i think you could hit i don't think anybody should ever question if this kid could hit he could hit miguel hit a baseball bat he's a natural born here he can hit but and he's going to be good he's going to be good in the no when they add the dh this year and and look ryan's right let's call it like like it is gary and glabor are losers i feel the same i feel that way i do they're not i don't think not losers in life because they're successful i'm not gonna you know they got to that level they're not losers in life yeah i feel like they are not winning players i feel like these are losing players i don't win a lot with a lot of these guys on your team i would say my assessment of gleber and gary is that they're not championship players well there you go they're not i don't think that their championship material that's that's my take on them i said it when we had this conversation on desert we'll make it even in our episode yeah we can make it even easier we both feel the yankees are a better team without either one of them yeah no yeah that's and that has no knock on them as players because we both agree simple as that they may be very good elsewhere and they're talented guys neither one of us is saying that gary sanchez is completely untalented no of course not he is a very he is a very talented great point felix brought up a great point felix said if there was ever a time to trade uh stanton if the yankees ever want to do that not saying that they would but he's saying the best position for gary sanchez is as the h and then he even went on that went on the point of even saying well if other teams wanted the trade for him you can't say that teams wouldn't be lining up to trade for gary sanchez at the h i think a lot of teams will want him no i think i feel like if we non-tendered him if we non-tendered him and he was out there to be had i feel like the models will pick him up right away because they question they're looking for they're looking for offense they also are looking for a catcher they know he's not going to be the best defensive catcher but they know that the dh is coming to the nl and they know gary so they'll pick him up they'd pick him up the phillies might pick him up as a dh option there's so many places that would pick them up i would i would put my hands on fire for this one most of the teams in the national league would be like yeah even the bad teams the nationals would say yeah we could trade them we could see these guys at the age and then trade them yeah because he's gonna get because make no mistake about it when gary sanchez only has to focus about on hitting he's a hundred percent going to become a way better hitter than he's been the last couple of years you're going to see the average go up you're going to see the house go up even if his average goes up to 235 240 tops if that's tops he he would arguably be an elite dh but if he's go as i'm saying if gary sanchez is getting up to 235 240 and he's hitting you 35 plus home runs huge a lot of teams are going to want that that is what he here's what we're saying he's not going to do that as a catcher on the new york games no and i think we've seen we've seen that that is not going to happen so that means that his value is probably as a dh we do not have that position open because that is manned by giancarlo stanton right now and he is much better at it than gary sanchez would be so bye bye gary sanchez it just it is it's nothing personal it's nothing whatever it's just like you're not championship material for what we need you don't fit that material so you got to go laboratories what i mean i might have to make that shirt the glamorous ass shirt so tyler thank you for throwing laborers ass in there and remembering that that shirt still might have to come out something i might give him a shot i might if he's a yankee i might give him a shot and let him play a little bit but the glamorous ass shirt is definitely in consideration it's definitely in consideration to make an appearance no doubt about it no doubt about it okay tim tim burns this is an interesting question i think what would you pay for martay simeon correa and trevor story hey let's play let's let's play some uh let's play some salary gm i'm gonna give you guys a heads up i'm not good at it i'm always bad at this crap i hate doing it but let's see let's let's talk let's think about this why not right it's yeah it's interest it's interesting that he let's see i'll say this i'll tell you uh marte i give uh let's see four years 64 million is that low ball i'm lowballing them am i low balling on them four years 16 mil a year that's 16 mil a year starting martial's three four years brings him to 35 is he 31 to 32 i think he's 32 can we let me google that um yeah guys i i hate the whole guessing salary stuff and guessing that's that's the one thing i'm always like doing it please don't ask me that but you know what it's fun right why the hell not we here we're chilling with family might as well pee wee booney merch needs to come out you better believe it marta will get about 20 million justin you might be right he might he might three years 60. uh three years sixty i mean i feel like i feel like he i feel like he can get a fourth year from somebody so you probably have to go four um i wouldn't do if i would never do four years eighty exactly so if you're gonna go four if you're gonna go four years listen i would say this all right all right you're a hard negotiator four year 72 that's 18 millipop take it or leave it guys p pete is awake he's way more shrewd than i am i'm telling you me me i would say i am willing to go about i'm definitely willing to go to 80. i'd say i'd be willing to do you gonna go to five years five years all right if i go to five years then the average annual value is going to be pretty low yeah i'll tell you what i'll tell you right now if i'm going to five years he's only going to get 80 for five um i'd be willing i'd be willing it was a 16 mil a year yeah i'd be willing to do i'd be willing to do 85 over four which is 21 85 over four 21 million a pop that's 21 million and the reason i say i'd be willing to do that is because i feel like the competition is heavy he's gonna get he's gonna get some crazy offers not crazy like 30 million a year but i'm saying like people are going to go 20 million 21 22. some people predict i'm getting 25 a year i think that's a lot but if the if the if the luxury tax threshold does go up the way people are predicting it to then you've got a lot of teams who are going to say [ __ ] it you're 25. i don't see that i can see that take it take it he's good he's he's good i mean he's just my thing is like yes he he's 32 so like we do you do got to be careful because the tools that i personally want to sign him for um one of those is the speed and as he ages that's obviously probably not going to be the same case so 25 seems like a lot to me but i'd be comfortable with 21.25 who was the other one he said trevor story trevor story okay trevor story trevor's story how old is trevor story 29 i think trevor story's 29 i think he's 29. maybe i'm not he was like thought he was like twenty-eight okay so 28 28 of 29 i believe trevor story 20 i'd be willing to go let's see how much this works out to be seven one eighty seven i'll tell you pete you are shrewd bro seven for 180 bro i have nobody he gonna go out there do it all they gonna see me today we ain't changing nothing i tried i tried the thing is that you know why you know why we would make a good team because like you got it you got to have some of that because every now and then somebody would somebody is going to sign for deals like that people don't think it happens but look at the groms contract look at ozzy look at look at the groms contract look at ozzy alvey's contract these guys were severely low bald and they took it you never know you really never know situations and and circumstances change a lot so you never know bro was there any way that trevor story takes a one-year deal for like 22 million i think anyway it's impossible that he expects a one-year deal somewhere to rebound not that he had a bad year but i think if i think it's very possible that if you if you're willing to go up a little bit on that average annual if you're willing to give them so let me ask you this 27. carl just said trevor store is 29 tomorrow what if he's 29 tomorrow 29 tomorrow so let's let's just you know have obviously having fun here i'd give them something wait a second wait a second somebody comes to you tomorrow and says the yankees are signing trevor stored a one-year deal for 27 million do you do it a one-year deal for 27 million that's all that's all that's your only commitment right there one-year deal that's it yeah i do it and he's your short you got it but you have to forget about seeger and everybody else and it's only for one year so you got to look at the situation again next year i do it i do it i do it i do it let me tell you why i do it i mean i'm right there with you i think you got to be nuts not to take a one-year deal from somebody let me tell you let me tell you what it is he's not i'm telling you he's take he's betting on himself and he's doing it on your team for a year and on the biggest stage in the market that's on the biggest thing that's ballsy one so if he if he does if he falls flat on his face and he's terrible then you might still be able to resign him if you need to i'm done i'm done with him after or or if you really need a shorts not that bad yeah get him really cheap then i exactly either i'm done with them after a year or i say hey you didn't have a good year but i'll i'll give you a multi-year deal just to keep you here because we like you yeah right if he kills it well that's great and you can still respond um i can still resign him um a lot of teams are out of the market because they signed all the shortstops from the year prior so i don't i'm not going gonna have too much competition to resign you and i'm gonna have the upper hand that you were with me for a whole year i gave you 27 million you played out of your mind you know what let's talk about a deal where i'm paying you about 25 24 annually long long term yeah i would do it i'd do it in a heartbeat so i think trevor story could consider that if the things take long like the negotiations take long and we get to february and corey seeger and correa are still dilly dallying wasting time guys like story are going to be the ones who pay for that because story's going to be a real tough deal to get because a lot of teams aren't going to pivot to him until correa and sieger are off the board and he probably would want to wait for that too yeah of course because he wants to up his value correct yeah correct you you gotta do that yeah you gotta wait you gotta wait until like you know what i mean like listen tropical fantasy cola doesn't look good in the freezer but when coke and pepsi are off the freezer and that's the only cola there now it starts looking good now i'm not saying trevor's story is tropical fantasy but you know what i'm saying you gotta you gotta let some of the other country club you know what i'm saying you got to let some of the other other options make space so if you're trevor story you can't sign before seeger or korea unless somebody goes out of their mind and do would it be a stroke of brilliance for cashman to just shock the entire industry and throw a deal at trevor story before december 1st that story i would i would i tell you what i would i would reach out to them yeah and i would have a game plan that basically says hey look we're going to give you a ton of money for one year but you're also going to be the best free agent in baseball next year actually i free at the free agent position at shortstop arguably one of them here's here's the interesting thing no johnny johnny you're right country club is banging i like country country club is fire we're not saying country club is delicious no doubt about it od most people are going to take a coke to over country club they don't know too much about country club but you know i do you know dude i say it i say it i say it like this listen it's not unprecedented trevor just did it simeon just did it and trevor and trevor bauer literally was was adamant about that was all he wanted so a lot of players are doing it and the reason they're doing it is because you don't get locked into a situation that you don't want to be in for a long time now trevor story doesn't seem like the guy who's gonna want to like go somewhere and then leave again and things like that it's another thing with anthony rizzo that's why a lot of people are like look like he wants to stay with the yankees or whatever because like he's a he's a creature a habit at this point if rizzo doesn't resign with the yankees a lot of people have predicted that he just goes back to the cubs and just hangs out with them throughout the rebuild which it would be crazy to like let his talent waste away there especially when you know that teams like boston are gonna go after him and stuff like like why would he do that but some players don't want to do that so if trevor story says hey man i want to be in a place long term but right now my market just isn't what i think it should be i'm not getting the value that i think i should be if i'm cashman i'll be like yo listen what do you want 27 30. you want 30 30 for 2022 and then we talk again i do it yeah i do it i do it in a heartbeat and then i'd go and like lock up robbie ray long term because i didn't just give like i'd go and do like other [ __ ] like you know what i mean because i just i got my shorts done for next year i'll figure it out like as it goes away again this is me do i see cashman doing that no cashman is about legacy and things like that whatever me as a gm i'm obviously i obviously would move differently because i'm not worried about a legacy i'm not worried about my ego me i'm worried nobody so i'm not i'm not worried about me i'm not worried about making a mistake no i think look trevor story i could i could see trevor story getting um let's say let's say 24.25 over eight what is that that's 194. it's 194. that's 194. let's say so let's let's make it a round number 195 over eight years that would be 24.3 million a year damn you did you see what is my goodness um i was this the first time i've ever seen this because i don't i don't really go on a lot of these uh sites and look at stuff mlb trade rumors projections they got him only getting 21 million over six years six years 126. trevor story trevor story 21 million over 16 million over six 126 over six years um shout out to mlb trade rumors because i i like the content that they put out and um yeah i think that they're they're good at a lot of things but that projection i disagree with they got marcus simeon has six years 138. guys six years 138 for simeon would be 23 you know simeon's getting at least 25. they got freddie freeman at six years 180. corey seeger he just turned down a better deal than that i think and then correa 10 years 320. and they all have seeger going to the yankees the first time i ever saw that robbie ray they got five years 130. uh 130 by five oh let me see let me see what they got you know okay robby robbie ray lander i want to laugh robbie ray is not is not inaccurate yeah that that doesn't sound oh he would say dirty starling oh my god i just kicked my camera my bed um starlin martay did i fix it yeah it's fixed okay starl and marte they have four years 80 million hey that's what we just basically said we said that so we're on there uh let's see i'm trying to find oh by the way um speaking of free agents that are out there i heard a terrifying rumor today i'm not true it is that the toronto blue jays are interested in chris taylor oh no i believe it so that's just more home run i'm looking for justin did i got justin verlander in here anywhere john gray at four years 56 million if that's the case would be a very nice deal for somebody that's a really really easy get uh john gray is gonna justin berlander at two years and 40 million am i the only one that's a nutcase no it's that pete the thing is it's i mean now i'm believing it's gonna happen but i'm just like i i don't know how i agree listen i agree with you i don't think that he is worth 20 million right now coming off with all the risk and everything but what i was saying in the chat and the other day like the reason i said like i would i would sign him for the two years 40 or like if he won if he was interested in saying and giving me like a little bit less like 19 or whatever then i do it it's because he's gonna get he's gonna get that because he already got offered the qualifying offer and the qualifying offer is already 18.4 so that means that houston who is who let you know george springer walk who's about to lose correa they're still willing to pay verlander almost 20 million dollars right uh the tigers are most likely going to be in on verlander the rangers will probably be in on verlander the mets a team that a lot of people aren't talking about the mets will be in on verlander the yankees will be in on verlander and guess who else la the angels as well as the dodgers will be in on verlander so what happens when that many teams are in on one guy and this is a cy young winner and the price goes up so that 18 all of a sudden starts looking like i don't know like i could probably listen man i could just take this 18. so if you're not offering me at least 20 over two then i might as well just stay where i'm at right i don't even got to uproot myself i just stay here in houston yep i feel like to get them out of houston you're gonna have you're looking at uh two years 40 to start somebody might be stupid enough angels to give him three years 60. they also have a good one here jan gomes two years at 10 million and two out of three guys thinks he goes to the yankees two years 10 million is a joke let me tell you right now if you can get young guns for two years and 10 million dollars you do it yeah you you do it but you also before you sign that deal you see what roberto perez is looking at of course i agree exactly because if yang domes is only looking at a two-year deal worth 10 million i've got one season yeah i wanna know i wanna know what perez's number is because remember what i was saying before it's all about player comparison because perez perez's number is not gonna be far off that and you know what if it's not then i'm going perez no disrespect to gomes he's still he's still a huge upgrade overseas i agree i agree i go right i go perez i go perez um has a lot of experience catching guys like coal and stuff too he hasn't caught cold but i'm saying guys like that he has he has experience so i want to get to this question here tyler pierce says um does ny news have a community discord um we do not uh let me get with killa joe about that cuz killer joe's the tech dude you guys wouldn't believe this and i tell you i am not big in technology or a lot of these other things out there right now we're learning because we got this gigantic launch coming in january so listen fam once you guys once you guys see our new intros and templates and all that oh my god he pete is not going to be able to get away with saying that he's not a tech guy anymore he's getting away with that [ __ ] now because y'all haven't even seen what we have coming for you in january and francis has seen it by the way francis and jim jimmy it ain't twitch baby it ain't twitter ny news it ain't twitch baby it ain't twitch baby listen it ain't twitch nah listen hey no disrespect to twitch we probably we probably could end up putting content there at some point there's gonna be a lot of stuff you never know i mean again like um just harping back on that because we're gonna we're gonna be we're wrapping up here any second we're a little over two hours yeah thank you guys but um you know looking at everything i mean everybody says why do i talk about january so i'm gonna i'll break it down for you why do you know we we've put a ton ny news started in 2005. so i don't think people really understand that so i was i was a much younger person than when felix started ny news and me and my arguably my best friend of my life growing up and for since since o5 we actually met each other from through the yankees and we decided to i decided to start working on that with him and writing articles and things like that and putting information out there so we've always had these plans but we also throughout life had different aspirations you know what i mean things change paths change and um at the end of the day you know we're all back here now pushing hard at this and we got an amazing team and just to let you guys know we have an even more amazing team coming on board starting in january and the reason why i'm so hype about it is because in my heart i truly believe that there is nobody else doing what we're about to provide yankee fans in january i truly believe that there is no one else that is doing it not even the yes network is giving you guys multiple different opinions multiple different angles you're going to have about four podcasts to watch weekly that's not even including pre-games and post games live like we're doing now that's not including round tables that's not including regular live chat that's not including regular videos from more than just me so you're getting many more opinions ny news tv is going to be absolutely amazing and the different the different opinions thing is big guys like it's huge one of my knocks one of my knocks on i'm not gonna call people out by name out of generosity since it's sunday but one of my knocks on some of the other you know content creators out there in yankee land is that there's just a lot of uh agreeable opinions on the same panels and things like that and i think it's good when you could debate certain things like i think i think it's good like to have different opinions have people up there i was listening to this podcast uh recently um and i'm not gonna name which one it is because they're actually coming on board with us and i don't want to drop out i don't want to let any cat out of the bag but i was listening to one of these podcasts and they were saying like some takes like about correa and secret things or whatever and i was like wow i really disagree with these guys but i was like i love i love that i disagree with them i like that i disagree with them because they were providing like different angles different insight that maybe i don't subscribe to but it was good to think about that for a little while like so these the people who think this way this is why they think this way it was nice to hear that but you don't get that if everybody just agrees with everybody need a little bit of debate neither hold on to end it with a bang laboratories will win a gold i will bet can we can we do something can we do something live on the air can we do something live on the air oh can everybody get me this is recorded so my side is covered i will right now li yanking i'll tell you right now give you my word 250 right now i don't know if youtube's going to ban me for gambling 250 you agree right that right now there is no way in hell glebe taurus wins a gold glove at second base 250 i give you my word the moment it's announced i'll send it to you if he wins i give you my word 250 no no you know what that's not even enough that's not even five we're gonna double that i'll go i'll i'll put 250 also i'll put i was going to say output 250 you put 250 and we set him 500 if labor tours wins the gold glove in 20. you lose you send both of us 250. li li are you are you willing to take that bet do you accept that bet there's no way here johnny said damn pete you mean 250 pesos from dr hey hey johnny that's what i'm going to send him i'm going to send him some pets so he ain't hey man let me tell you something that question alone just devalued the dominican peso to dollars per every per per up what is it oh hold on for one dollar hold on it get the plot thickens joe killa joe added 150 the pot is at six the pot is at 650. he hasn't responded he disappeared he bounced he sent it and bounced oh man he is something else man lie come on man you you got to give us a lie you can't say something like laboratories and gold glove in the same and then disappear i will literally throw in a pound of gobble ghoul with that and that's a hell of a deal oh man now johnny everybody throwing money johnny said he's going to put up fellow is going to throw in a hunt fellow oh my god a lie hey where you at where you at fam any news on a hitting coach chris no i don't have much news on a hitting

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for nyy news the offseason is here you guys know and man oh man shortstop is the position that everybody's talking about from your beat writers to your mainstream reporters to your youtube content creators to fans to bandwagon fans and right smack dab in the middle of that are our beloved new york yankees who are they gonna go for you know the mainstream guys say it is correa or it's seeger that is what everybody believes right now so i'm not gonna talk much about corey seeger today because i definitely want to hit on carlos correa and i also want to hit on a uh rumor so to say or news i have been told by three different people now and you know well we'll get to that towards the end let's right now focus on carlos correa and and a little bit i'll start off with corey seeger a little bit we know the pluses on corey seeger right world series champion that's left-handed makes a lot of contact overall a good player we know he's not the greatest defender at shortstop the yankees believe they could move him over to third base he could play well there and um you know you don't want that middle infield defense of being labor torres and corey seeger it's not gonna be the best up the middle in baseball no doubt about that but again he got the accolades right he got the world series title he seems like he's a winner he's a good ball player good teammate all those good things we hear about corey seeger carlos correa and by the way before i jump any further on that one i'd be happy with seeger i wouldn't be upset about him most uh i i believe passing rosenthal only i think they all believe that seeger sherman is going to be a yankee they feel like that's the guy they eventually go for carlos correa i like the player i love the player i tell you off the bat one of the things i love most about carlos correa is he's edgy he has a pearl he has an attitude the yankees need a little edginess i talked about it when i said about them getting robbie ray he's a bulldog he'll go out there go after you if he needs to talk a little bit if he has to you know the yankees need that type of edge aaron judge you know isn't really hated by other people he's not really the enemy he tried to do something sometimes with the boombox and all that didn't really pay off or work out too well but aaron judge doesn't come across at all as the enemy you know he doesn't he doesn't have that persona about him now correa on the other hand people are going to hate him you know what i mean and if he's on the yankees they're going to hate us they're going to hate us they're going to hate that we got this guy and i know fans right away are going to bring up well he cheated and the team cheated and the astros astros astros did this correa said that you know correa's had some comments about derek jeter recently on whatever it was saying that you know he didn't deserve those gold gloves and things like that but you know brian cashman grace with him you know brian cashman had a lot of things to say about jeter towards the end of his career during those negotiations so i mean hey it is what it is i mean people could say what they want they can have their opinions um but we know what correa does good right he's a great defensive shortstop uh platinum gold glove winner platinum glove winner excuse me uh terrific overall uh does everything well in the field flashy does it all makes the easy plays makes the hard plays he's the best defensive shortstop of the crop that's available great arm great glove again everything there checks out a plus uh great bat big postseason hitter we know that we've seen that time and time again edgy to me is a pro some people see it as a con i see it as a major pro footage ball club cons i guess kind of what you hear i guess the fan a lot of the fan base uh you know they said aaron judge doesn't want him here and come on brian cashman isn't doing his job if that's even in his consideration gotta improve the ball club simple as that so for me as i said before call up with uh with corey seeger i like him a lot i also like corey uh i also like carlos um carlos correa no problem with either one of those guys signing with the yankees i have no problem at all we know it's going to take a lot of money most people project 300 plus for the both of them and we'll see those negotiations go uh from what i hear i've had a lot of people tell me that they feel that it is also gonna be correa or seeger that those are the two yankees are truly going after hard now i talk to on a weekly basis when i started i was about three now it's about five or six guys who who i trust who have given me good information there's three of them who i i truly trust one of them's a newer one who is um who's a friend who's really good he knows his basically uh been there and done that too so three of these people have told me this three of them have flat out told me hal steinberger is not gonna sign another 300 million dollar deal we'll see where that goes but i've had three people tell me the same exact thing he will not sign a 300 plus million dollar contract knowing that he wants aaron judges to stay a yankee he wants aaron judge to stay a yankee and he's not going to lock somebody in for 300 plus million dollars those three other people have also told me do not believe the whole idea that the yankees have soured on trevor's story they told me all three of them said they think that is the short stop the yankees actually land trevor story because again i don't like to get into the estimations of money and all that i just never really liked that stuff of guessing that um but it's very much expected that story is going to get a lot less than seeger or correa so the yankees mindset there could be maybe we can upgrade center field with a martay maybe we can upgrade first base you know maybe we can do some different things with saving a little bit of money or not going as crazy as we expected but really putting extra production into the into the batting order that's not necessarily trade driven would you you know got your play with that also afterwards but i've heard that from three different people and these are three good people these are three people that that know their that have been right many times before so we'll see what happens but again the other people i talked to seemed to fall in line with your rosenthals and those guys that said they fully expect the yankees to go to possibly payrolls 260 70 80 maybe even 90. so you know everybody i talked to personally to on dms they asked me oh pete what are they gonna do what are they gonna do i tell everybody the same thing there's a ton of conflicting stuff out there right now there's a ton of it i can give you what i think could happen but there's a ton of conflicting things out there right now what that just tells me is that the yankees have their hands all over the place right now they're trying to figure out what would be the best fit they're trying to figure out how the off season goes if brian cashman is really doing his job guys that's the way to go about it right now there's a lot of changes that need to be made in this club and if you're just focusing hard on one or two guys it's not usually what gm's do anyway but he needs to have his cards on the table and he also needs to have a really good template with some with some really good ideas on it of uh twists and turns that can happen in this offseason we know teams like detroit are gonna be you know spending some money we know texas are to be spending some money so it really depends on how many guys you know want to win or want the money more and it's never going to be a i don't think it'll ever be a gigantic gap of a difference but you know is it possible that seeger signs for under 300 maybe correa i don't see so as much i think somebody's gonna offer him that maybe not who knows uh story definitely he's gonna sign under 300 that we know it might sign under 200 or probably will i think most estimations have him signing under 200 million so it depends it depends it's a very interesting time for the yankees i do know that there's definitely interest in correa we know to this interest in seeger and you don't got to take my word for that take the mainstream guys out there if you want to believe them that's fine and again if you hear me saying don't count out trevor's story that is me telling you guys what i've been told and there's not a lot of mainstream guys out there saying they're saying that they have soured on them i'm hearing that it's not necessarily true so we'll see what happens on the market with story but i'll tell you what depending on what else they do i wouldn't mind story too much very good defender plays a lot not usually out due to injury and things of that nature of you guys one of the stats i brought up earlier about carlos correa is and this is not me you know knocking him or saying uh don't go after him a lot of yankee fans when they talk about aaron judging an extension they like to say well we don't know if that's the best idea because he's injury prone and he's this and he's that since 2017 aaron judges played 45 i mean i messed that up didn't i 45 more games than carlos correa has since 2017 once judge became a regular he has played 45 more games than carlos correa so that's an interesting stat because you don't hear that much about carlos correa that he's injured a lot and and things of that nature you don't really hear about that a lot um you do hear about it a bit with corey seeger but um you don't hear much about carlos correa but he's you know he's had his his fair share over there so you know um um for the people saying that the yankee fans saying that specifically you know hold your horses a little bit guys hold your horses a little bit so overall guys i wouldn't mind any one of those three i'm just telling you what i'm here to say is don't count out a deal for trevor story don't be upset if the yankees don't get one of those top two there's a lot of ways this offseason could go that's why it's so interesting that's why you got so much conflicting reports out there but i'll tell you what don't be shocked when you hear that the yankees have met with his agents or there's been conversation there or a rumor starts up trevor story the yankees tried to trade for him remember at the deadline uh the rockies played it horribly we know that they wanted too much from everybody they end up not trading them at all just a horrible job by the rockies but the yankees were one of the last remaining teams in there trying to get trevor story so and then they obviously turn to anthony rizzo and brings them over so it'll be very interesting to see again great options out there love the edge that court that uh that carlos correa could bring to this club i think it's very needed and and we know who corey seeger is we know the type of bat what that would do to this yankee lineup and how much more dynamic it would make it any of these guys makes the yankees offense better one we know that uh the pros usually really outweigh the cons for all of these guys in my opinion especially upgrading what our shortstop has been so that would be a major upgrade either way so guys again in the comment section below let me know what you think about all this all the news that i'm putting out there right now about story the just the idea overall who you would want out of those three for right now correa seeger and story and think about money too you know think think of you being in the seat there what you would do would it open up a chance for the yankees if they got a guy like trevor story to maybe get robbie ray also to maybe get sterling martay think about the things that can open up potential trades too uh what it could do for the yank so let me know again in the comments below and if you guys have not subscribed please go ahead and do so put the notifications on so you never miss an ny news video again guys i am pizza minetty for the one the only nyy news i will talk to you guys again very very soon thank you tell me

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for nyy news the off season daily daily has something going on today is a player that you guys if you are a regular subscriber got so many new subscribers so thank you guys so much but if you have been a regular or if you've watched me and never subscribed and you still don't and hopefully you do but if you have watched me for a long time you're going to be familiar with this name because i've told you guys the yankees have had interest before now it's being confirmed again by a lot of the mainstream guys um brian reynolds pittsburgh pirates it's becoming a daily rumor and if they don't get him now it'll continue to be a daily rumor until he's traded because the one thing we know for a fact with pittsburgh is this guy is an elite ball player he's young he's eventually gonna come due and he'll be moved whether it's at arbitration or before that he'll be moved uh when it gets to that time it's the pittsburgh pirates they're not gonna hold on to a superstar unless they somehow lock him up early but eventually brian reynolds will be traded so it's either gonna be a constant story for years to come or it's gonna be something that pops off now and it could make some sense so for the fans first of all who do not know who brian reynolds is pittsburgh pirates center fielder young 26 years old will be 27 next year on the season had a six war had a career high with 24 homers 302 average uh eight triples 20 again 24 home runs 90 rbis five stolen bases 75 walks on base percentage 390 batting average 302 as i said slugging 522 ops 912. this is a terrific ball player 35 doubles again good center fielder also just uh 2022 projection has him again having a solid year uh that's with the pirates so again with the team like the yankees it would be very interesting to see how those projections would change i'm definitely we're bad at the top of the order uh would be tremendous but let me go ahead and just kind of level set with you guys here i know a lot of good people in pittsburgh um it's actually one of the teams where if again you guys have paid attention to me and have watched me for a while you would know i always have good information on pittsburgh whether it comes back to the time of the cold trade whether it's jamison tyone um whatever it may be when the yankees are dealing with pittsburgh um just as recently as last year when clay holmes i was the probably one of the only guys saying everybody hold on a second i got some great information on who this guy is and we saw he was actually elite and that's what i was told when they got him like it was oh pete you know hold up a second you guys actually got a pitcher who is really really good and the only reason why i got that information is to have really good connections out there with guys in pittsburgh who know the team see the team watch the team are very familiar with the way they go about their business so one of the things i've heard about today when i asked about it was quite simple they'll listen the pirates will listen if a team comes to the table and blows them away and they know that they can replace reynolds and then add immediately within the next one to two years because if you guys don't know the pirates people hear the pirates and are just like uh it's the pirates who cares no no no no no wait a second the pirates have legitimate players coming up they got cruz at short gonzalez coming up at second base could play third i believe also um again you know about uh keep ryan hayes already they got uh davis who's one of the they just drafted as a catcher is going to be ready soon then i mean they got a lot of swaggerties another guy heads another guy in the outfield uh quinn priester um former yankee contreras uh terrage i think his name is i forgot his last name but he's another starting pitching prospect um something like that his name is i forget how to say his name but point is they got a lot of good going for them when it comes to guys coming up um and a lot of those guys are very very close so you're looking at within 2022 to 2023 these guys are going to be ready so when you look at a trade like this you look at it from the pirates perspective we don't have to trade brian reynolds we have no reason to trade we might be able to win with him at least become contenders with him and they could that's not a joke that's not me being that's not be you know joking about this the pirates have a chance to be a contender in the next two to three years no doubt about it um if they get lucky and these guys come up and perform next year 2023 they could fight and be a much better club uh i think the main 2024 2025 potentially they could they could really be a very very good squad so looking at that at the pirates point of view okay we'll consider it we know some clubs got great farm systems one of the clubs that are also interested in rentals per reports i can't really speak for other clubs but perta reports of the mainstream guys are the mariners the mariner's got a ton of prospects one of the best systems in the game so if the mariners approach them and go well we'll give you this this this this and that one three four seven and eight on our pool or maybe a guy that's already at the level you guys like you know we can we can talk about that the one good thing that the yankees also do have because i'm not a mariners channel of course i'm gonna speak on what the yankees trade would have to be is if you could convince the pirates and say to them well we're getting one of your major leaguers i would like to add stallings in on that but i'll get i'll get to that later i would like to give you all multiple major leaguers for your one major leaguer and they're also controllable what that could mean is first of all one of your top guys gotta be in there and i'm almost gonna hold out peraza on this deal because i think that's an olsen thing and the yankees can still build on that but just speaking of this so if i add peraza forget the olsen stuff for now this is just a video based on what it could take right now to get reynolds if if if these are all ifs because again guys you know i don't like doing all the trade stuff but what you're looking at is saying okay one of our best prospects is jason dominguez we'll entertain that well entertain dominguez you guys like them cool but how i'm going to try to convince you of this deal is that dominguez isn't ready so he's not going to help that pool of where you guys think you contend soon you're looking at 2024 2025 that'd be ready which could actually be a great time for your organization what we will do is supply you right now with guys who are already close to being ready very very close estevan floriel could immediately take over in center field luis heal could immediately jump into the rotation davy garcia could immediately jump into a rotation or a bullpen clark schmidt the same thing and these are still top prospects but then we got prospects luis medina oswald peraza they already got a lot set up on the infield so i don't know how interested they would be in a guy like peraz i'm sure he still would be but medina heal um oswaldo cabrera could potentially be a starter this year um everson pierre could also be an outfielder very very close to being ready so the point here is if you can convince them to say look we can actually supply you with two to three cost-effective guys at the major league level right now or within next year that you can build upon if that's something that's attractive to the pirates which if i were to pirates it would be because if i could say okay i'll trade reynolds i already have his replacement in center field with estevan floreal who may hit for more power he pro he'll bat less he's not the same player but he could supply us with a lot of power he could also surprise everybody and be very good as i believe he will become we know his glove is great in center field we know he has an arm we know he can run so he's going to steal us more bases than reynolds does he could potentially for more power yeah he's gonna strike out more yeah he's gonna bat lower but we're not contending next year this kid may turn into a really good ball player we know jason dominguez is down the line we know what that talent looks like that's a blue chip prospect louise heal fits into our rotation very nice now at rusny contreras maybe keller gets it going finally brutabaker maybe we got something a little something going on there quinn priester isn't far away i like the sound of that i like the sound of that oswaldo cabrera could play all over maybe he's almost ready to go so a lot of good there a lot of ways you could make it make sense for the pirates i still believe the more realistic guy so francis actually sent me this india he's like pete would you give up the top top guys if they added stallings also so he's talking about volpe and everybody else i'm like whoa that's a tough one with if i entertain that you must have the other guys involved also and what i mean by that is you gotta know you're signing seeger you gotta know you're getting robbie ray because if you dump the farm you gotta know that team you're putting out there is like unheard of it would have to be a team that's like fam if these guys stay healthy not even aaron boone could make this team bad like it's that type of thing like if you added reynolds seeger stallings ray maybe maybe another pitcher maybe olson i don't know how you do it but if you do some astronomical buxton maybe you do some astronomical thing then then you could maybe empty the farm a little bit but in reality to sum up this video i don't think it happens i don't think reynolds is traded i think if he is it would be amazing if the yankees get him it's gonna cost a lot it's going to hurt but get stallings too then if that's ever the case you know add up on both positions yankees can't make all these trades and and keep gary sanchez around so you guys have been amazing by the way views are through the roof subscribers are through the roof guys we had a goal like i said of 6 000 subscribers by january 1st we're already at over 5700 we're about 290 something away from breaking that goal already we might have to increase that goal uh come december so again guys thank you so much for everything you're doing thank you so much for enjoying the page talking about it the way you are again comments below let me know what you think of brian reynolds is it possible in your opinion from what i hear likely not but if it is it'll be a absolute blowout deal they're gonna have to really knock the pirates out their seats to make a deal so you guys again let me know in the comments below do you like reynolds what would that trade look like for you on the yankee side who would you be willing to offer again guys this is pizza manetti for the one the only nyy news talk to you all again very very soon tell me

hey everybody what is going on pete simonetti here for ny news i know we did a live chat yesterday but guys news is hot this off season already and i gotta talk about it so i had a good conversation this morning with somebody very much in the know of the yankees thinking and the great thing i got about this because you guys know i haven't i wouldn't say i've been negative but i've been down on the talk and we're gonna do this and we got latitude and all these other things that brian cashman says i'm all about action this team we know they got to make changes we saw the deadline they recognized the righties were too much they brought some lefties in there's hope here that there may be significant changes i'm telling you this right now because i am told that brian cashman's approach this year is very different in the regard right now i don't know much about the money side we'll take him at his word for that we'll see where that goes but again even the way he said that yesterday could really go anyway but i am told the table is is is empty the prospect pool is to the side he opens the bag up lifts it up and pours them all on the table and goes let's play games here let's play ball that's what i'm told including some other pieces the man this video is about briefly labor taurus i'm told by my best guy don't be shocked if gleber taurus is moved his reasoning is he's the guy still that a lot of teams want and brian cashman isn't backing down from that there has been no har line drawn in the sand that says glaber's untouchable we're not doing it now again labor may not be moved and cashmere will come out and say you know he's an untouchable we like him we want to do this but my understanding is for some of the big names out there your olsons whatever could tell martes maybe maybe there's other trades out there that present itself for starting pitching miami labor tours wouldn't necessarily hinder a deal now would the yankees do labor plus multiple top prospects i don't know i i don't know if they would do that my understanding is everyone is on the table the one name you hear a lot about that isn't is what we talked about yesterday that's anthony volpe yankees really love this kid because they feel like he's the next jeter and they feel like he's very capable of moving to third or second base if he really needs to they do feel his body's getting bigger so he's gonna hit for more power and that may hinder his defense a little bit at short but they love him there so here's a tweet i put out today and this is basically regarding this so i wanted to make this video because i want to give a little meat to what uh a short tweet says i said glaber is not an untouchable not at all don't be surprised if he has moved in a major as a major part in the trade so that has been brought up to me now by just to put it bluntly for you guys somebody who knows his if he said it it's legit and most of the stuff that i put out quickly and to talk about i'll do it in confidence if i'm told by that person i always tell you guys this if i'm told by a few others i talk to i want to get it confirmed by somebody else then i'll put information out but don't be shocked if glebe taurus is moved now some of you may sit back and go but pete why he's controllable isn't that kind of what the yankees want in a way yes but remember many ways the yankees go this offseason really determines how their infield's going to look let's play a game yankees trade for olsen let's say gleber's not part of that deal let me tell you why he probably should be trade for olsen they signed corey seeger and now you're looking around going um we also you know gave a lot of money and years to dj lemayo we know he was hurt last year defense wasn't bad wherever he played really he's best at second base we know that but he was injured we got an excuse for him we'll see how he does when he's healthy but we kind of know who this guy is so what do we do with him he's the least value of dj lemayo is moving him off second base you drop his value to your own club third base first of all he's not great great defensively there he's good he's passable but he's not dj lemayo at second base who's arguably one of the best second base defenders in the league and at first base i've been on record of saying i think he'd do good i think it would be his other best position second or first i think is our best position but second by far so you brought in seeger who's not great defensively we know that not terrible he's average maybe he's slightly above slightly below however you feel however you see the eye test and then of course analytic numbers however you want to look at those but the best infield at that moment would be geo back at third or you know you got kyle seeger out there who's a good third baseman also another lefty there's a lot of things you could do there but let's just say let's just go with geo geo at third see your short second base you got glabor there first base you got olsen your middle of the order of the line of the of the field is not good now replace that and say you got geo seeger dj and olsen boy so this is big news because look if the yankees recognize something to that level i'm on record i'm on record you guys know this i'm on record i've said it the yankees come out there they dump gary sanchez i am getting hyped for this offseason but if they keep the same guys around i'm not getting hyped i got a feeling to be one or two and that's it and that's not enough i've been saying that but it's good to know that cashman is very willing to wheel and deal and he's very willing to deal guys that he acquired we know what cashman's ego is that is legit anybody would tell you that anybody would tell you cashman's ego gets in the way of what he does we know he trades with a lot of the same teams good news for the yankees fans is olson is one of them olsen is one of them sorry i'm getting i'm getting so many messages today it's crazy i love this time of year i live for this i live for this um but olsen is one of them i mean oakland is one of them and olsen's the guy we want don't be shocked cashman goes out there and gets olsen and a starting pitcher because if you're looking at a deal that could possibly include glaber voigt and then multiple prospects you're also beating up you know killing two birds with one stone there you're getting a legitimate legitimate first baseman only makes about 8 million and a starting pitching starting pitcher to go into your rotation that i i on record also saying i think you need to then you got money to play with then you got seeger maybe correa maybe a center fielder maybe starlin marte in a three-year deal two years in an option i don't know higher aav you also got the potential of an extension of aaron judge oh here we go the best yankee infield has dj lemayo at second base can't deny that there's no way no way and no form of denying that the best yankee infield is digital mayor second base so without you know going any further i'm gonna get back to doing what i do i'll get videos will come immediately if there's information but the news i have right now is that brian cashman the war room for brian cashman has all of his soldiers on the field that may be a little hesitant with one guy and that's volpe they don't want to move but my understanding is everybody including glaber torres is on the table gleber torres could be on the move that will be very very interesting to see if it plays out that way but it's good to know that early talks have not stopped because of certain names being mentioned that alone is very very important stay tuned guys more to tell come

have you engaged with the representatives for the free agent shortstop i started yeah i mean i i slowly because we're doing dealing with coaching stuff but but uh i've already you know had two conversations with two just two separate conversations with two separate you know uh players that represent short agents that represent short stops just so so it is now being reported that the shortstops the ages of the shortstops that brian cashman is talking to it's been confirmed now by people don't really think this guy's credible but i'm going to give him the benefit of doubt jim bolden tweeted out that according to sources the yankees are in conversations with agents for both corey seeger and carlos correa hashtag confirmed now this doesn't come as a big surprise we all know the yankees would be interested in corey seeger and carlos correa specifically those two in my honest opinion uh cause korea has the higher leverage here as garrett cole was one of his former teammates and look i don't really like i don't really want justin verlander on this ball club if you listen to my uh previous video i explained it in detail but even verlander with garrett cole been a yankee we've all seen that uh garrett cole has some sort of pull when it comes to acquiring his former friends uh take uh taiyon as if for an example in um homes for an example so realistically we all know that gary cole has some sort of influence when it comes to let's say the yankees coming to him and asking him a question what do you think about these guys and he's going to give his honest opinion so for an example if the yankees ring up coal and ask him what do you what do you think about these guys what do you think about carlos correa how would you think he would fit as a yankee what do you think about rurlander how how do you think he would fit as a yankee we all know the answer right he's going to vouch for them former teammates that's why i see carlos correa having higher leverage than a corey seeger not only because of that i really explained it in detail if you guys want to see my previous video but if you didn't um carlos korea when i he has the numbers when it counts you see his postseason numbers it's about one i would say similar to seeger i'll saying 25 percent better if you compare those stats and i'm not trying to take anything away from seeger but my intuition says that the yankees if they're searching for a short stop carlos correa is number one on their list so yankees fans that has been the breaking news the confirmed agents brian cashman has been talking to happen to be agents of cory sieger and carlos correa so yankees fans like always leave your opinions in the comment section below this has been felix from mly news.com share like and subscribe and i will check you on me

since they won the world series and it's amazing they want it without utilizing a whole bunch of players that they don't for an example like johan carmago who is a sleeper might i add a switch hitter third baseman utility infielder that the braves barely utilize and they did it without acuna either so congratulations to the atlanta braves it doesn't matter well it doesn't matter how many games you win in the regular season but it matters when you get hot and get on a roll the braves certainly proved that and so did the uh washington nationals in 2019 so again it's that time of the year again the hot stove that time of the year where yankees fans in particular are on the edge of their seats waiting for the yankees to act like the yankees and you know sign everybody and their mother if you ask me that's what's going to happen you have a whole bunch of disgruntled fans out there and what better way to make a splash and let's say sign a carlos correa i don't think the yankees are going to sign seeger i think they're going to sign correa to be honest with you guys yes uh seeger is a left-handed bat but carlos correa has the numbers when it counts his post season numbers are incredible and uh the houston astros uh insulted him i mean you know 30 million dollars per year but the years weren't there it's not that insulting when we're talking about money and we're just regular people not making that kind of money but it's pretty insulting when you offer a guy in like calls correa that kind of contract after what he did for your franchise you could call him like a franchise player as well so uh yeah uh carl's career is not resigning with the astros also for an example you got guys in the minor leagues like volpe peraza waiting for their shot volpe has a lot of uh fans out there rightfully so he's been performing he's basically the best uh farmhand that the yankees have and if you sign a guy like uh calls correa he has the body frame to move over to third base and again you guys know that i would love the idea of carlos correa on his team i've been saying it for over three years now when it was the unpopular thing to say and plus i like it even more because it triggers these um screw correct he's a cheater i don't want him on my team he bit the yankees by cheating you know it triggers those kinds of fans but um you know the astros have reached the world series over and over again after that scandal so and carlos correa's numbers are still there when it counts the postseason and you could say he's a semi uh all-star in the regular season i'm not saying they didn't cheat but obviously carlos correa's numbers weren't that affected that much you know like his arm his defense that guy has a cannon for an arm he's just clutch he has the uh the attitude of a player that i want on this specific team see i've been complaining a lot that this team is soft they need a boater like carlos correa simple as that so moving along there's talk out there that the yankees or i haven't heard this specifically that the yankees would be interested in signing a verlander you see back in 2017 i took a lot of flank when it came to the yankees training for sunny gray or the uh talk that they wanted to trade for sunny grey was between vern lander and gray and a whole bunch of people are pushing sunny gray to the bronx even the new big newspapers i'll give credit to the yes network they were actually pushing for a justin berlander but some long story put short i told my boy pete i said hey the team that trains for vern lander they're going to be your 2017 world series champions and bam it happened i was 100 pushing for the yankees to trade for verlander but if you ask me today do i like to see verlander as a yankee i would have to tell you no you see this is going to rum some people the wrong way but i'm going to be 100 real the 2022 season is going to be an experiment for garrett cole as we saw his numbers get wacky after uh sticky substances being banned there's been talk in the past that justin bernlander is that same kind of picture that he needs help with the grip gripping the baseball so i would not like a 39 38 year old joining the yankees when i know he's that same kind of picture and i'm not trying to bash garrett cole i'm not just trying to experiment with two guys and knowing that justin verlander is an all-star type picture imagine if he implosion in new york this guy's just going to get destroyed so yeah in 2021 and juan used felix is now passing on justin rolander after being a fanboy of his back in 2017. moving along luis castillo and i'm going to tell you this i'm going to take credit for sparking that rumor that got so big that the rest gm had to come out and say uh luis castillo is not on a trade market i'll take credit for that i've made numerous videos about louise castillo but he's another one he had a weird finish as well he finished about one eight and 16 or something like that but his numbers were somewhat there was he another picture affected by the sticky substance ban who knows there's a lot of talk that it's going to be added or whatever taken out of the negotiations the cba where they're going to put a better grip on the baseball i don't know but it seems to me these uh power pictures you know curveball pictures were basically destroyed by uh this band so who knows if they uh allow these pictures to somewhat get a better grip on the baseball with these negotiations we we don't even know if there's going to be a season in 2022 who knows but if you ask me if luis castillo's out there i've made plenty of videos about him i always wanted him as a yankee but something tells me that brian cashman is not that smart and he's going to pass on him hey maybe he could prove me wrong but brian cashman his credibility with me has gone down the drain for obvious reasons and when i say me i mean mostly the yankees fans out there yes luis castillo is available confirmed by the reds themselves let's see now moving along to the first base situation do you resign rizzo do you make a trade with the half linux for an olson or do you move dj la mayhew who's going to be a yankee for seasons to come do you move him to first base permanently you see here's my take i had this opinion a few weeks ago you trade glamour torres you make that train with the oakland a's you sign the calls correa and boom that's your uh 2022 infield uh matt austin dj lemay who at second base carlos correa at shortstop and geo urchella at third it's that simple play dj lemay here in his natural position you have a chip and taurus you could basically include them in the package for any player out there and you know matt austin would fit perfectly in the bronx that swing would dominate in the bronx and he's on the trade market so yeah i would do it uh nice knowing you glabor wrapping this up here's the time here's the players that i wouldn't like the yankees to obtain just wrapping it up from what i was saying earlier matt olson carlos correa and maybe a luis castillo all these players one of these players you get via free agency two of these players to get retreat and oh yeah i just reminded myself of this that luis rojas the former manager of the mets is potentially going to join the new york yankees as a third base coach or whatever and a lot of yankees fans hated that idea or hate that idea why it is a positive in my opinion bringing in a dominican coach are these guys forgetting about tony pena luis rojas comes from a baseball family do you guys forget who his father is so hell yeah i like that idea bring him over here he's going to help a lot of latin players on this ball club i'm not saying the yankees don't have latino coaches like mendoza but this guy there's a whole bunch of dominicans playing for you guys so yes make it happen it's close to happening but yes make it happen i know there's a lot of players that are left out if you guys want to uh leave your opinions we have a new segment called ny news mic pass and the information to submit your audio was left on there hey if you guys disagree with me or need to chime in some more send me your audios so again leave your opinions in the comment section below and like always this has been felix from nynews.com share like and subscribe and i will check you out next time friends

innovative yup we designated spit it's time that you know we designated yup we innovative uncle stevie uncle stevie making deals on black friday and he wasn't taking bargains he wasn't taking bargains any part of the day he's uncle steve um that should be like the startup to uh to a met show but unfortunately um i gotta start with uncle halstein bruno this is uncle stevie yesterday this is uncle stevie yesterday he woke up and chose violence he said listen oh shoot he said steven match what you want to do okay call up call up mark hannah call him up i thought that was the didn't uh didn't big pun have a version when he was like [ __ ] on the whole industry that's exactly what he just did that's exactly oh man listen uncle steve he did he said all right that was funny though because you know that was like that was like a legit i'm pissed off type thing i told felix felix messing me about i say yo this man was making deals sitting on a love seat and cracking walnuts just like yeah yeah close the deal just cracking another wall man who you getting marta that's what he wants i do it yeah these people i saw people giving uh billy eppler some credit for some of these deals and i'm not trying to billy i'm not trying to i'm not trying to shade epler at all but let me tell you something your man just got here yo man he just got here he says sir what we doing today he goes we got three deals we're closed already he's just he's just he's just gonna make the call okay cool he gave billy the day off yeah facts he said bill bill black friday go with your family get some things done just start tomorrow don't worry we'll have a couple of things done for you you don't got to come in you get credit for it i started laughing so hard i got hiccups let me get my water making some headlines out there right they get um they get kana they get rosario and then of course they get the the big one at the end of the day is of course starla marte and of course yeah this is not nym news this is ny news so at the end of the day we're gonna you we're gonna talk about our yankees and look first and foremost i'll just say this not a significant impact on the yankees i get it because you know we still have things we can do but man friends i tell you man i am utterly in a way shocked by a lot of the reaction from yankee fans oh you came to marty the people the people like defending how bad of a signing all of a sudden marty would have been who would have given that money and this and that he got four years about 19 million a year yeah he got under 20 million a season yep not even 20. for for the next four seasons i laughed about this on the live chat i don't want to keep laughing again do you know that there was yankee fans that actually said that aaron hicks is better it's a better point there's of going out there and getting them you have you have yankee people out there posting videos of aaron hicks making sliding catches in center field and dominic and winley when he looked like trash doing it he looked terrible he looked terrible tell you guys right now he took a horrible route to that ball horrible um and ninety percent of it ninety percent of the the route was the the fact that he was moving ridiculously slow but you know who he looks like you wanna laugh i'm not joking you remember when bernie williams came back to play into wbc oh god and everybody looked at it was like bernie you can't do this fam they're like bernie no bernie we don't want to see you like a man who didn't belong in that field and you could tell i mean people say oh well you know you know maybe out of shape that's why he's out there he's trying to get back listen listen guys what was he doing make all the excuses you want i'm not i'm not here this is not about bashing aaron hicks right this is not about bashing aaron hicks this is about bashing the idiot fans who were in my mentions telling me that aaron hicks is equivalent to starling marte so we don't have to spend on a starling marte because we already have him basically what where who and where does aaron hicks match like the speed did you see what he looked like catching that ball you know come on bro mind you i'm actually sitting here saying if aaron hicks is on center field okay but just have a good backup phone i'm i'm on record saying that so i'm not somebody who's like i hate aaron hicks i would trade him if i could mine 100 i'm just cracking up truly that fans are actually even uttering the words that marty isn't a better and then they're talking about his age do you see the way this dude is built no some of them that's what i'm saying that i had people in my mentions telling me oh yeah a 33 year old center fielder is not the answer is it what was it was a 32 year old uh utility infielder the answer last year because we gave him six years and signed him dj the mayhew and we were all very happy that we resigned the mayhew we were all very happy that uncle stevie didn't swoop in and steal the mayhew so don't tell me a year later you're saying nah we don't need and it's a shorter deal and you guys are talking all this garbage and [ __ ] about the marte deal you know marta deal martay's deal ends a year earlier than le mayhew does yeah we're paying we're paying the mayhew a year and him and lemay who are the same age and we're paying dj a year later then the mets are going to be paying starling marta the deal is a good freaking deal the deal's a good freaking deal it's an economical deal for him he's making he's getting paid he's getting good money but it doesn't that's not a back breaker contract for a team not in new york for the yankees not a new you're the problem what what organization are we that's the only issue here we've become the kansas city yankees according to the fans they're talking about oh no we can't spend that kind of we can't afford that what and i'm a circle i'm a circle back to marte but the other thing i want to say make no mistake about this because i feel like some people got it confused somewhere i saw it in the mentions on on my tweet i saw it in the mentions on your tweet because we both had a similar tweets that kind of blew up and some people don't seem to get it they think that we're we're upset about all of the moves that the mets made no and we feel like and we and we're like oh no we wanted all of those guys and the mets stole all of those guys no no no no no no no no no no they just want to stupid read into what we're saying we were speaking like i was speaking specifically about starling marty and so was pete mark canna i came out and said he i think he was a great signing for the meds i think all the signings were good for the mets all of them were good for the match all of them were looking escobar listen escobar canna two great signings for the men's if the yankees would have signed either canna or escobar i would have been like what are we doing like i don't i don't get it like right escobar it's like we already got dj and i like dj better i think he's a better version of that are we trading geo then he's taken over exactly i would have been like what's happening here because that score play escobar plays second and third you know he's a i'm like yeah he's a good clubhouse guy but i'm like yeah is that what like i would have been confused if the yankees weren't assigned to i agree so no i wasn't i didn't feel any kind of way that the mets got him other than happy for the mets fans i was like that's a good pick up congrats mark canna same thing oh yeah we do need that we do need outfield but ken is not the kind of outfielder that we need so when they signed him i was like oh i see what they're doing i was like that's good for them because they need that they need that and they're gonna need that so i was like okay yeah ken a great pickup had a decent year in oakland and i mean the way he hits over there is kind you got to kind of take with a grain of salt because he hit it he did it in such a shitty ballpark that it's like put him in a put him in a ballpark that plays even half a little bit more friendly to hitters and he's probably going to put up a lot better numbers so i think again can a good deal shouts out to the mess for those two very good deal for the mets what we were talking about though was only starling martin it was only him he was the only player that the mets and the yankees together were going after along with a slew of other teams the phillies were in our hearts the marlins the marlins made a big push for martay which now i mean side sidebar or whatever but now you know now they're saying that they shifted after losing out on marta they shifted to castellanos that's going to be interesting because there's a lot of teams that want that want nikki stixx and if the marlins come in and swoop him up guess whose market improves even better which is what boris has been saying all along comforto he starts to look way way more attractive with marty and nikki sticks off the ball you said he's gonna get money he's gonna get it yeah because i and the reason i predicted it to my whole basis behind that was boris is gonna tell him don't don't get scared we're gonna have to be patient and you're gonna have to watch some guys get signed ahead of you but i'm gonna get you the money but don't don't get finicky don't get afraid because you're gonna see some guys go and you're gonna start thinking but dang is there gonna be a place for me is it gonna pace for you and there's definitely gonna be a place for you just be patient and i'm it's looking like it's gonna pay off starling got a great deal nikki stixx is gonna probably get a decent deal because the marlins apparently the marlins apparently were willing to go pretty close to what marta got from the mets yep right yep so i mean i would imagine they'll go just they went right up there they were close they were close they were close right yeah that's what was that that was that was that was what was being reported today if i'm if i'm not mistaken now so i i would imagine that for castellanos they're gonna go about the same they're gonna go about the same um length if not a little more costianas is 29 so he's younger you could give him more years if that's what he's looking for give him the money and miami has they got the paper why not and you guys they going come on you're more willing to go more years if you have to exactly because you can give them an off day in the in the outfield and have them you know dh for you a little bit split time over there so if he does end up going to the marlins who some people had them in the outfield market but not a lot of the top insiders had the marlins going and making a splash in the outfield market like i'm like a marte or a castellanos when a team like that does something like that it really shifts the market and that's why boris has been saying he's like no no he's like uh comforto conforto is going to cost and that's why he said i don't think he's going to go back to the mets and maybe that's why the mets went and ponied up what they did for marty because when you see what conforto gets you're probably going to be like wow marte was a steal which is what we've been saying yeah we said we said the deal for starling martin once we saw it it's a seal great deal it's a great and again it's funny because my my whole my whole beef is like you said before i don't care about khan i don't care about escobar my thing is what yankee fans were saying after the fact because look my job isn't to put nobody on blast i'm not looking to do that but a lot of the cats that were saying oh the yankees wouldn't have matched that off or the same one saying they wanted to offer them those type of deals they would have seen people saying oh we wanted this guy that's the thing that bothers me about yankee and look this is a yankee podcast so it's kind of funny you're saying that but we keep it real that's exactly what it is my whole thing is though why do a lot of you cats feel like every other player that could be our team we got guys better than we don't i gotta come to you right now and say we don't we don't no we're not in that position the cat's saying oh there's yankee fans out there panicking now look at my tweet what did i say in my tweet not that they're panicking about getting a big name i said they have too many moves to not be aggressive i said it in my live chat the yankees have what aaron boone called giancarlo stand a unicorn remember because he he's magical when he's got everything going he's magical i said the same thing about the yankees off season right they got prospect capital and they got money to spend there is no excuse that the yankees come now what where a few days away from december 1st haven't made anything of significance not nothing at all nothing to tip a hand nothing to even tell the fan base yeah we are taking a different route what do they do release clint frazier okay he wasn't gonna they dear fade a couple guys bam the biggest move is tylawade to be honest the biggest move of the yankees off season so far has been tyler wade it's the one that made you say oh wow that was kind of surprising it was like whoa that's interesting they left squid they let squid and tyler wade go to the angels dia fade clint he's gonna be out there and then they'll probably throw this there's probably going to be something you're going to see some people probably react when they non-tender a guy or two now in a couple days because the nonsense the deadline's coming up they're probably in a long time they're probably going to non-tender a guy or two a lot of people a lot of people are predicting and i mean you i mean i feel like you know you've been saying that for a little while some people i've been hearing it for a while like people predicting and probably gets the non-tender um so yeah that'll be something but it's still not it's not what uh it's it's not what the mets have done it's not it's definitely not what detroit has done so far blue jays may add gauzeman yeah i mean it's looking like it could come down to the jays the mets i was told this morning i said it in the chat i also said it on the live that um the people that one of the guys i couldn't cooperate with anybody else said one of the guys that gave me actually to know with syndergaard stuff he said flat out he would he's expecting it to be done either today or tomorrow that he's going to the mets so because they made a very hard push to get them so i mean that might be even but even if he doesn't go to the mess he goes to the blue jays that's basically the blue jays saying we're not bringing ray back and yeah that's open to another club but again that's the blue jays now still getting better and then on top of that that's the robbie ray now does he go to the yankees so here's my thing about the yankee off season i'll see if you agree with me and and this is what this tweet basically meant so to all the fans out there that's oh you guys are panicking no nobody's panicking yeah it's not i i i said this i said this earlier and i'll say it again you could beat a lioness and you could wait to to jump and and make your move and catch your prey you can weigh back but you do that for the big meal of the day you do that for the big fish you don't need to do that for positions like catcher you don't need to do that for a backup outfielder you don't need to do that for jonathan vr you don't need to do that for a starting pitcher you can do that for your robbie ray you can do that for your seaguar or one of your top shortstops you can do that you can wait because look let's be realistic you want to be optimistic let's be optimistic there's four short stops out there that are not signed and it's this almost december 1st lockdown is coming we don't know if that's signed before or after but there's four guys that are available that need to play somewhere next year we know detroit would be interested we know texas that they're probably gonna get one one of each that can still leave you with two who whoever those names are whatever the mariners go out there and they get uh adam frazier hello and take some and take some right out of the of the talk maybe they put that money elsewhere you know what i mean now you got to look out for them somewhere else my thing is eventually eventually with the waiting game one of those players may crawl to the yanks i'd say look you know my guy does want to win he got this offer out there we may take a little less to come here yeah and that's what cashman probably is waiting for my thing is though that's not the only move that this team needs to make they need significant change trust me in my comment section today on my on my live chat which is this is obviously going to be tomorrow but saturday morning saturday afternoon everybody agreed i'm telling everybody agreed gary sanchez cannot be your catcher if you're a serious team you can't have gary sanchez behind the plate again can't do it can't do it then up not if you're the not if you're the yankees you're up the middle cannot be gary sanchez gleber aaron hicks and then whoever your new shortstop is you can't do it's not a winning formula you're not looking to win we've been saying this we've been saying this we've been saying this for we've been saying this for months guys been saying now for a couple weeks right i mean in our group chat and then i guess whenever whenever we you know record do episodes or whatever i feel like you know the yankees are a lot of the stuff that's coming out that they're putting out you know through their you know yes network people and beat writers and all that [ __ ] it's all it's all financial posturing right i don't put too much stock in anything that's been said so far right it's been said by guys like passin and rosenthal that they expect that they're like know the yankees are gonna give out one of those 300 million dollar contracts to either correa or seeger or one of those guys but then it's also been said by lower level guys like your shermans and whoever like no you know word on the street is that they're not gonna be giving out a 300 million dollar contract um a lot of people are saying that they can see them going with a stop gap and things like personally is francis putting in stock in either camp right now no why because i feel like nobody knows what they're doing because that's how cashman operates and you know what that's not necessarily a bad thing because when you're the yankees if you show your hand you're screwed right like if you show like listen this is our guy and if we don't get him like our entire offseason hinges on him then you're gonna have to overpay and you're gonna get beat over the head with the price so if you if you remain ambiguous it's probably better for you right which makes sense that if they are going to sign a 300 million dollar play a contract then they also put out that they're not signing it so that it's not as out there or if they are going to a stop gap it's better that they also put out that they maybe might dip in the water 300 million because you don't want to show your hand but all that all that being said the paris that that's speaking about like the big fish that's not speaking about the peripheral moves and we're talking about moves like catcher center field like things like that you know what i'm saying starting pitching is always a priority it's always a focus but i mean this off season right like it's something that has to be like you know at really at the forefront after you make one of these big moves i listened to boone on r2c2 the other day god bless you he sounded like it was it was an intro it was an interesting interview but i'll say towards the end when they started talking about like free agency and things like that or whatever he didn't give up anything so if you guys are going to go look into that to get info you're not going to find much but what he did say was that you know they're working and they're they have a couple targets they're talking about different guys every day and he said like he feels like you know right now they're in a position where they're just waiting for a big domino to fall and that once that domino falls you're going to see a bunch of subsequent moves that follow that right after i heard that i said okay let me do a little research here before i speak out of turn i want to look i looked at the 40-man roster which is currently exactly at 44. it's perfect perfectly at 40. and i went and i looked at it let me tell you what i gathered from looking at that roster this roster is not a roster that is built for opening day so clearly clearly the yankees are planning on making several moves so i'm not i'm not going to sit here and say like oh my god the yankees aren't doing anything they're not going to do nothing or whatever no no one thing for sure they're going to do something they're going to do something because the way the 40 man is right now this is not a 40 man that's going to be playing in april there's obviously going to be moves we don't have we don't have a short stop we don't have like like your first baseman is right now it's technically getting it's like there's a lot of you know i mean it's like no so clearly things are gonna happen but what we're saying is right now there's a mad dash to get some of these guys locked into deals right and some of these guys are signing for maybe less than what they're gonna be signing for on the other side of the lockout because on the other side of the lockout we could be looking at a luxury tax threshold that is way higher than just 210 right yeah we can be we can be looking at teams who are desperate yeah because a lot of people are saying oh but the players are going to be desperate to sign too the players are going to point that right back at the teams they're going to be like oh yeah i'm desperate to play for a team but you're desperate to sign somebody also right like it's not gonna it's not gonna be like oh well the players are the only ones desperate they have the owners always carry themselves with this air that like they run everything and everything what we've begun to begun to see the last couple of years with deals like tatis with deals like lindor with extensions like mookie bets trout uh all these guys soto's impending extension wander franco after you know freaking short rookie camp just got extended 12 years what we're starting to see is it's not about you owners anymore the players have power they have power and if they come out on the other side of the cba walking around with the big stick you're going to have to pay these guys what they want and that's it and and that's that's my whole thing so it's like there's there's a there's a way that this waiting game backfires that's all i'm saying right i understand the waiting game and you just said it too you understand it makes sense everybody knows that we we understand what cashman is doing this is not a method that um how you say like this is not a method that like is a you know it's a crazy method it's not proven or whatever this is a proven method in business right you wait guys out you wait them out wait you wait guys out wait for the market to be not a george thing you know it's not something that george would have done because you know he said the market and he also had an ego so you know he wanted to fill his own ego up so exactly what george washington worked no he wouldn't he would oh man there would have been moves today exactly yeah what what's what uh cohen did today well uncle steve did today yesterday george would have made a move you know just because he knew the mets were going to get a headline so you probably would have seen seeger as a yankee today yeah it would have just a secret or robbie reyes somebody he would have they would an agent would have got a call it would have been george they would have been jumping up and down because they knew what's up already and he got a monster deal yeah you know and and that's the way it works so nobody's saying that you know that's the way this yankee team literally has to run to organization no because you shouldn't be reactionary towards the mets of all things but at the end of the day there's a lot of like you said the 40 man ross i even i was just even browsing it just now it's not built for a club that is ready to play major league baseball so you know there's gonna be changes yeah my thing out there that i say is concerning is like you just said you don't know when the cba is gonna gonna be agreed to you don't know what month is it going to be february a month before spring training i mean if that's the case team players are going to be well i want to sign i want to go i want to do this i want to do that then you got to hope that any trade you started to talk about is is held up or you don't know how teams finances are going to change you don't know if their mindset's going to change or how they want to look at their business maybe look towards next year or whatever that's going to be you also don't know what other players may become available you don't know there's this is a very weird house because i do believe when moves are made they're going to be all grouped together because teams are going to be you know not necessarily reactionary but with a time frame that is limited to say this boom boom boom boom then you're gonna see one after the other my whole thing at the end of the day and i've kept to this is the changes that must happen need to happen this all season you can't finish this offseason and come to the yankees and say we got seeger and we got um uh uh uh jonathan vr because we think he's gonna help on the bench that's not an off season even though even if you had john great we also signed john gray that's not it i'm sorry sorry that is not it not just off season there's too many holes there's too many holes and that's my whole thing it's like look and it's not like you don't have plugs to fill it that's it exactly there's too many holes and but there's so many options for the holes right now like right now on this half of free agency what my whole thing is on the second half of free agency we don't know what is going to be there you don't know what is going to be there you don't know what kind of negotiations are going to be had you don't know what the conversations are gonna look or feel like and there's gonna be a lot of stuff going on again again the yankees could be operating under under the thought that we actually do know what the second half of free agency is gonna look like because maybe they have information that we're not privy to as fans i always put this out there as a disclaimer they operate at a much higher level than we do so they might have information about how the cba negotiations are actually going to go and they might know that okay it's not really going to go into february it's probably going to go into maybe mid-january or something like that right and we'll have time also you know we already hear the the rumblings of like the luxury tax threshold going up we already know that this is going to happen that's going gonna happen so like they might be playing with house money they might know things that are coming but us as fans we don't of course and that's why we're gonna react the way that we're reacting because especially when you see teams moving with a sense of purpose because that that just shows you that regardless of what the thank you the yankees think there are other teams who think nah i need to get stuff done right now because we don't know what the second half is going to look like and you have plenty you have plenty of like uh teams that have proven that the padres dealing frasier on this side of uh you know the the lockout you know i'm saying that that's that speaks volumes now i put out a tweet today i was like i was like you don't know if they dealt frazier because they wanted to open space for cj abrams to come up right and maybe and maybe shift over to second base maybe a free agent or or maybe now they want to dip their maybe they want to dip their sales into freaking the the simian market or the buyers market yeah if they if they start having conversations with buyers buyers is that that whole thing is going to be all over the place now because right now you have a lot of people saying look bias is looking like that's the tigers priority and like they're gonna like make it work according to reports today buys on the mets are off in terms of like the money figure yeah so which you know i could see some met fans being like oh like what the hell like you know we're spending money like whatever why are you gonna like be cheap on the bias deal when we just spend all this other money but you guys got to remember he they extended lindor 341 million dollar like that's a lot of money they just spent 120 something yesterday like they're spending money you can't be upset they're like they're not spending they're spending they're spending money the thing is that if bias is pricing them out meaning that the tigers are pricing them out of bias because they don't want to price up to like korea yep and the mets might have to take the l there because it is what it is and biases market is is really robust right now you got the tigers you got the mess the red socks are in on him there's a lot of teams if the team like the padres gets in on that too who knows now with simeon it's like a toss-up i mean who knows because i seattle was a team that was like i felt like they're a really good fit he's from like up there area whatever and they they got adam frazier now so it's like hey simeon very nice very nice deal that was a really really good deal does that make does that open the track for him to come back to toronto a little bit easier or is toronto looking for other things like you know right now they're focused on pitching but you see them looking at a lot of guys who are not named robbie ray which would lead you to think they feel like they're going to be priced out of robbie ray which is something i tweeted weeks ago and a bunch of you were saying like oh no that's not the case they're just checking in because you know maybe whatever i said this i said this when we started to see what verlander's market was looking like remember you did you did i was saying i was like he's gonna get i thought he was gonna get two years 40. he ended up getting 50. which i thought was crazy i said he's going to get at least like two years 40. he got 50. cindergard got what 21. cinderella is 25. wasn't it 25 so cinegar is 25 for the one year right mats four years 44 million yeah water eduardo rodriguez 77 they're going to get hey golfman's look at the players too that got the players involved and going after goldsmith you got the mets you got the i think the mariners are interested you got the blue jays you've got teams of money kevin gosse the giants are still there probably with them yeah so you got kevin goffman's gonna go out there and get himself a paycheck and you know who's looking at oh no he's looking at that robbie ray's happy robbery could wait he could wait all day so just wait chill chill they're the ones that can be patient we need we need we need a cowboy in the bronx though we need a cowboy in the bronx we need robbie right in the bronx i'm sick of talking about this you know what i mean i'm almost sick of talking about we need a cowboy and a bronze my man had that cowboy hat and i said man that's it it's like the movie city slickers it's like the movie city slickers man that's what we need we get them a cowboy hat with a yankee logo around the front listen and i think i think that that's one of the things that actually has shown me like my optimism early on in the offseason wasn't necessarily unfounded like maybe we do have reasons to be optimistic because when you listen to the guys who have been in the players who have been in on some of these guys available right sometimes you hear the yankees but sometimes you don't and it makes people wonder like well you know stephen metz pretty solid pitcher did okay in toronto pitched really well against the yankees why weren't the yankees in that market why weren't the yankees in eduardo rodriguez's market these are guys who came to the bronx pushed against us and shut us down several times throughout the year why weren't they in those markets gossman has tons of people right now in his market haven't heard anything about the yankees talking to yanks nope some people are saying some people are saying oh well because they're gonna like you know they're looking to trade for a picture or they're looking to get like a really low level thing or whatever could be that or it could be that they're like yeah let all of these guys go and snatch up your thor's your stephen mats your eduardo rodriguez your kevin gossman's your john gray's your max scherzers and then let's see what happens with ray at the end right right and let's see what happens with ray at the end we know we're gonna if because because you said it that's cashman's guy he's wanted him for years yeah for all you know they have a bulletin board in yankee stadium right now with robbie ray as one of the center pieces and they're like he's our freaking guy we gotta get him yeah but they're trying to play it like let's see look we know we're gonna have to pay him but let's figure out exactly how much we're gonna have to pay him let's see what it's gonna be right we don't know yet but again that's the whole thing it's like waiting that waiting game you got to be careful because you never know they have the power robbie ray sits down and watches greg gets signed gossman gets signed all these guys and he's not in a rush he knows he's going to get paid yeah correa knows you never know buyers goes to detroit correa knows he's going to get paid well that too and you know the longer you wait too you got to remember one thing players also see other teams getting better and they may enjoy that fit more so you know robbie ray sees the jays doing all this and who the hell knows what the js are up to you know like you said the cba goes up and jays go look man you know what we may not be able to do the one the 165 170 or whatever the hell kind of deal you get to something whatever hella will be but you know maybe maybe we can make something work maybe we give you more years maybe it takes that aav down a little bit well not not one something excuse me you guys know what i mean yeah but um for a guy like robbie ray i mean i i've said the reason why i just think it makes too much sense for the yankees is just because the strikeout numbers that's never going to change he's not going to not strike guys out will a zra go up i predicted it goes about a run and i believe that i think his era goes up to the mid threes maybe even high threes but it's worth it it's still worth it it's still worth it because i guess you gotta have guys that strike guys out in the postseason and the names alone back to back with scare teams the names alone are righty lefty that would probably be one and two in baseball on strikeouts if they're healthy all year yeah you have that on your club you notice what you're facing that's terrifying that's terrifying that's like shilling and johnson that's just johnson type [ __ ] it's rough it's rough and i could see i could see cashman saying like look we that's one of the priorities like we need to do that i could see that 100 i mean kevin kernan thinks so kevin kerner thinks that's his guy yeah he thinks that he tried too many times to get him not to get him now because of money yeah i feel like i feel like that's one of the things that like it would surprise a lot of people um but it wouldn't surprise me i i and i'd be i tell people like i would be way more shocked if they ended up with correa than i would be if they signed robbie ray i i would like i feel like shocked at correa also i feel like robbie ray i feel like robbie ray is like cashman has been like public about like his pursuit of him like not because he wanted to be public but like it just it's become public he's been after this guy for years now well it wasn't so close all it takes is one year he had a start in arizona and they literally asked them about it he was like the worst thing for me is going to be shaving my beard yeah like they asked him that if you go to new york you know what is it going to you say god i love it but the worst thing about me is shaving my beard like other than that and he always been you know but just a stubble you can't even have a lot of that showing so i mean you know shaving did like every other day he was like that would be the annoying part but other than that i mean every like i said i i i mean he'll love it he's gonna everything i love it over here everything i've heard about robbie ray is literally everything this team needs they need a guy again that was like sabathia that was just look we got to do the dirty [ __ ] i'm there i'll throw behind it dude robbie ray's not he's not scared to do that no he's tough on the mountain oh by the way i actually learned something interesting about him a lot of it actually wasn't necessarily mechanics for him it was actually weight gain um isn't that interesting i didn't even know that apparently it balanced him out more by being heavier on the mound yeah yeah so he said that he said that and a little bit of slight mechanics actually is what led to him having much better control so that was interesting so um it was bulked up and that made him remember a more command driven picture you remember when cece lost all that weight and he had no command at all anymore terrible yeah yeah a lot of people a lot of people need need the weight to hold you down center you better david wells talked about that a long time ago that him pitching heavy was better for them that's just how it was yeah is that people these days people are getting used to seeing like these like tall slender or even buff pictures and they're like oh my god like that's what a picture looks like whatever when we were coming up a lot of pitchers had beer guts yeah of course just heavy heavier set guys or just heavier guys they were throwing but they were throwing cheese they were throwing cheese and they could control it right and i think a lot of times right now with these bulky guys that you see like even your thor's or your michael lorenzo's or whatever these guys are real muscular dudes or whatever but it's like they'll struggle with the wild everything they'll struggle getting wild a lot of stuff and they struggle to stay healthy because they're all over the place is what it is like they're all over the place and they're lifting weights and stuff like that whatever it's not good it's not yeah you guys know how i feel about the whole the weightlifting and [ __ ] like that with baseball i think i don't know how the hell it got into it but i feel like i think it's like as limited as possible if you can limit that as much as it's a lot of strength as much as you can muscles especially doing something like bass when you're swinging a bat you're throwing a ball you're a lot with the sides with your obliques with your with your hamstrings a lot it's a lot of work where you're putting no pressure and power by you know working on other stuff like that but um oh bro we lost your camera yeah yeah i'll get it i'll get it back on i got like a i got like a faulty um plug here it's annoying oh man it'll come back on give me one second don't worry we're experiencing technical difficulties give us two to three seconds we'll be back this is what happens when you do live stuff right there we go see we've got a green there we go let's go we're back but um no like i'm saying i mean robbie ray would just be a great fit he would be a great fit for the club he really would be and all it's going to cost is a little bit of money and you know um and that and and from there you know the one thing i wouldn't want to see is gary sanchez catching him i wouldn't want to see that that would be terrible and i mean i i i broke that down again today on the live i don't even want to really talk about it much because i don't want to take up much of our time doing it but after what you saw from gary sanchez last year the horrible place after you got what three-fifths of the rotation not one of the pitch to him towards the end of the year two years in a row of not pitching in a playoff game at the end of the day guys i mean that's my thing how is that your starting catcher you basically already said he's not no more and now you're going to keep this guy again for another year no it's the thing that people like are delusional about they tell you oh no but sanchez is sanchez sanchez doesn't play the big games your ace doesn't want to pitch to him if you sign another frontline starter that starter's not going to want to push this copyright shouldn't pitch to him he got he got to throw sliders in the dirt why would you want robbie ray throwing no if if cole can't throw to sanchez robbie ray has no business even even looking at gary no no way no it's like so you're talking about games one and two of a potential playoff series going to higgy yeah like and some fans are okay with that i don't i'm not no i'm not i'm not anymore not at all like i was okay with it when it was just cold catching all right because boone's not gonna do [ __ ] about it so yeah that's how it is yeah but my whole thing too is you know if if you look at if you look at gary sanchez i saw somebody tweet this today there's a video or a picture of him working out everybody oh look to the people who called him fat and lazy gary sanchez could come in with a six-pack next year that doesn't mean he's going to improve his catching i mean that's not the thing you guys talk about stupid [ __ ] it's not even about the fat and lazy stuff but he does it every year he does it every year every year and by the way he shows up to spring training a lean mean hitting machine thank you he's got it in shape year after year and he's gotten worse sucks by may fam he's gotten worse defensively like i looked at the fan grafting matter of fact while we're here let me see if i can find this um hold on a second i gotta try to find it because i was laughing catchers by war okay because i saw somebody post this on fangrest and i'm like oh okay all right i get what people are doing because you know and then they were like oh it looked good because they just put it for american league and i said okay america like i said now let's look at all leagues let's look at national league and american league right and i was going to make a video about this but since we're here i'll talk about it right now why not all right in war in the american league so i'll be fair and do what everybody else did and and go by the american league first and league gary sanchez was ranked seventh overall mitch garver was ahead of him max stassi was ahead of him sean murphy salvador perez he has monte grandel and mike zunino who was number one in the american league those are the guys that were ahead of him he was seventh when it comes to just the american league now let's look at major league baseball because you know there's this whole idea that gary sanchez is just superior compared to everybody else offensively all right now gary sanchez ranks 19th in all of major league baseball and he's only thought he was i thought he was the best offensive catcher in the game he's also .1 points point one only ahead of danny jansen and francisco mejia two ahead of reese maguire okay point two he's also tied with manny pina okay john gomez a little above him elias diaz of colorado's above him carson kelly who is always injured is above him by point two dalton varshall who just moved to catching is above him by point five and then the list goes on and on to your best guys like your jacob stallings your salvador perez uh real muto and all those guys but then there's an interesting one defensive war bro i don't even want to see him no no you want to laugh you really want to laugh for a second oh man what is it 28 20 28 or 29 bro this is going by hold on hold on this ain't going by team this is by every catcher so when i first saw the list right i said what the [ __ ] is he i said i'm looking i'm looking all right hold on maybe i'm just missing let me look for the ny ny and a y and y and y nothing's popping up so i said hold on a second kyle hey kashioka's 19th i said wait there gotta be something wrong here ny i know why i said oh damn there's another page there's three pages all right it goes from one to thirty i said let me go let me move to the next page i said gary gotta be there he is 37th 37th oh my gosh 37th you know what that means when you're 37 guys let me explain that to you that means that teams have backup catchers who are better than gary sanchez defensively this is crazy bro like i mean our own backup catcher is better than gary sanchez defensively guys again i don't know how many times we're gonna have to say this we're sounding like a production like like a broken record here we can live without gary sanchez's offense i promise you we can live without his offense yes we can live without it no it's the 20 it's the 20 some odd home runs that he's going to spray in here and there whatever it's like if we if we keep joking again that one hot streak a year like that people people when he's back yeah yeah every every year he comes back listen i loved i i loved gary sanchez as much as as much as the next guy did but you know you got we got to move on it's about winning it's about winning gary sanchez as a catcher just doesn't seem like a winning move i'm sorry he's not i'm sorry if that hurts people's feelings or whatever but it's surrendering it's waving to white's leg it's waving the white flag if i'm look if i'm in those meetings with brian cashman i swear to god i wish i could be um i'll never be welcomed to him but that's okay but if i'm in those meetings and i'm sitting there i i look across the table to all the pro scouts probably actually yankees probably won't have that if i got all the analytical nerds around them and i'm just looking at all of them saying do we got to get cole on the phone do we got to get montgomery on the phone kluber's a free agent but you guys want to call him up real quick you want to call him to see what he thinks i'm i mean are we really kidding ourselves here to continue this guy to throw him back out and then and then you wonder why there's people like pizzamanetti of ny news who's talking about an obvious disconnect between a fan base and the ownership and the team because fans have known this [ __ ] for years and they keep running the same guy out there going guys it's gonna work this year this year this year every good team has a strong middle of the lineup middle of middle of the of the infield they're strong up the middle champions which means start starting pitching catcher second base shortstop center field francis the last time we won the world series um who was the who who do we have there in center field talk about catching okay well let's play a game that i love to play it makes me very sad but i love to play it look at the 2009 yankees world series lineup it's gonna make me very sad but let's do it let's do it this is a game guys this is a game this is a game that i love that i love to play it's fun because you probably could argue you got three out of the four guys are hall of famers yeah if not you know obviously and the last one is very very good was a very very good player okay so this is not the lineup in terms of order but this is how we lined up for game one wait hold on is this better be correct we have posada catching chair at first kanoa at second okay jeter short jeter a-rod at third like if you just stop right there that's it who's inside of who's in center field melky melky took center of that game damian was unless melkian okay but you typically would either be milky or damon tell milky or dean all right so that day so when you talk about strong up the middle that team was strong as hell up the middle ridiculously stronger than the next last time this team won a light a light matsuya dh that's the last time this team won a world series and they had the formula they had it all when you looked at that team you said there's a championship caliber team no and then uh pitching uh brunette pettit cece jabba aceves mariano who was a beast in the planet zamasu martay the melanson was with us that year i mean david roberts but you look at a lot of that look at the two guys and it's funny because you know i never really thought about this until this moment right now if you look at the 09 off season it's almost what the yankees had to do right now they added two strikeout pictures cece sebastian aj burnett they added the big first baseman which they obviously need now whether that's anthony rizzo or i don't know how to help the matt olson deal doesn't happen i really don't the the mariners just took themselves out of the picture likely we're trading for a few prospects um you know i think i think boston could still be a little scary with a move like that maybe maybe i don't think they have they don't have better prospects to offer than the could be but that that's the whole thing right there they they're farming they don't have better doesn't compete doesn't compete with unless they end up looking to trade one of those guys that were on the major league roster this [ __ ] that was really good uh which came up and pitched and yeah i still even see it better than what the yankees could offer no because then it would be money too the money too once they come up to the majors you know the money changes i don't think the rays are doing that i i don't know it doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like a race the brewers could the white sox maybe maybe but there's not there's not a lot of clubs out there that i'm looking at are looking to win now that are really going to be able to beat the yankees when it comes to getting a guy like matt olsen and that could take care of a lot of their moves right that could take care of first base and like i said i think if you make a deal with oakland i'm sorry you got to get a starting pitcher i mean make that deal bigger there's no point in just doing it if you're going to give up guys all right then let's give them if it's make the one giant deal if it's taking this long i'd like to believe that that it's because they're trying to exp they're doing their best to expand it and not that they're lowballing them with the offer it's either that or it could also be that oakland is also doing what the yankees are doing with a big free asian they're saying let rizzo go let freeman go and then we got to feel the play open whoever's rizzo if they really wanted to they could deal due to spring training that they wanted to they have they could hold they could they could hold on to them and deal with the at the at the trade deadline they'll get more now likely to they know they know they know that now this off season is is the peak so i mean i'm i'm honestly i i believe that deal is eventually going to happen at some point so i think their first video is going to be that route and it just makes more sense too because if you do eventually spend money on on a short slab if you do especially uh spend money let's say on robbie ray we know it's not going to be cheap and if you do that that locks you in right that locks you in for first base is not going to be too expensive 8 million or so depending on if you do move uh uh uh um herman or or voight or one of these guys you're also saving money there so you could still be moved exactly these are guys who are most likely gonna be moved no doubt about it so you're still saving money in in certain places like that so the yankees off season plan i feel like is well known by the majority of fans we know what they what they should do and i think that's the reason why a lot of us are just like but there's been nothing yet so all of it could come at one time all of it could come very quickly but i think there are certain moves that just make more logical sense because the yankees aren't going to go dish out 300 plus guys they're not going to do that i i i feel overly confident now that we're not going to see that happen maybe it does and i told you i said it a hundred times if it's wrong i'll be happy to say i was wrong i did not and based off the people telling me it i don't see the yankees doing it now i know your past sins and all these other guys saying they're gonna make a huge splash they're gonna you know they're gonna spend the money i don't see it i don't i don't see it i don't see it happening maybe it will but when it comes to the logical moves there are still so many out there without having to spend a ton of money that they could make to greatly improve this team it's just that they they have to go and do it and and right now you know there hasn't been a you know a jump in the gun to do so i'm still i'm i'm still a maybe on like the big short stop signing i don't know but do you think a 300 plus million i say maybe i say maybe the only reason i say maybe is this if the luxury tax threshold goes up to freaking 2 30 yeah or 240 or some [ __ ] like that then 300 another 300 million dollar deal is not going to do anything to the yankees but it's happening i could see them do it but if that doesn't yeah also it is it is house time and he does want to resign judge so that's that's the thing yeah but to me that's that's what that's what keeps me like at bay with it right now because like i don't know what the luxury tax is gonna be after the new cba is signed i know they want to sign judge i know they want to sign a pitcher i know they have to pay somebody at shortstop so i'm like they already have cold air they already have stent in there um if they do trade for olson it probably isn't so that they watch them walk away in two years so they would want to pay for him too like i'm looking at it and i'm like okay i could see you know i could see what's happening here this is an off-season that could set you up for a team that is locked in for the next three three four seasons that's right and this is who you're going with and then you just add and plug and plug and play when you need to yep right that's what has me like saying i'm iffy on it because i don't know what the cba is going to be yeah if i know for a fact that the cba is going to be the the luxury tax threshold is 2 35 next year or 2 30 or 2 40. that's 240 is crazy 240 i don't know how they don't sign correa and just say [ __ ] it because why not give me correa give me robbie ray like we can add both of them and still be under like get the [ __ ] out like like barely over um so that's what's gonna really upset fans when it actually happens and they don't do the moves exactly see that that's really gonna upset fans that's that would be where you really like and that's where i would really like lose it because i just feel like you stayed under the threshold last year the threshold went up this year and you still didn't sign one of these guys like what like well let me let me not say lose it because like say the threshold does go up to 230 240 and they don't get correa they don't get seeger but they get robbie ray they get story and they get like i'm probably not going to lose it because i'm going to be like i'd be happy about that i'm like we got better we got better tell you something you changed three positions if you could if you could change three yeah let me let me i'll bump it up to four i'll bump it up to four just to be fair just be friend i already said i don't think shortstop is the major priority that everybody's talking about i think it is just because of the names available but i think if you upgraded that olsen if you get a catcher if you upgrade a starting pitcher and then of course you get a shortstop whoever that may be i think that's enough and that's me saying it i'm not an easy sell i'm a hard sell i've said that i've said that you're probably coming march you know ny news tv jumps up in january you're probably gonna hear pete complaining i'm just keeping it real because i don't have faith in the team right now and the [ __ ] i hear is not cute you know and i try to report most of it some of it i don't report out there i tell you guys about it because i can't corroborate it yet with anybody else and when i do it then i'll report it i'll put it out there but a lot of the [ __ ] i'm hearing isn't cute so you know because of right now i'm not the most you know i'm not hopping up and down but like you said you were right if we didn't get correa if we didn't get seeger you end up getting story even if it's a one-year deal you you get olson over there you sign robbie ray also and maybe you get a uh you trade you trade for catching i'm telling you right now i'm gonna pat brian cashman on the back and i'm saying look for what you were given you did a hell of a job with what you were given without the big money without steinberg saying he go kid here's a blank checkbook have fun without that being said you did a good job cash i'll pat you on the back but i'm not patting nobody on a bag if they gonna play the waiting game they're gonna lock up correa or seeger and say yeah we also got olsen yeah the offense is cute but that's not enough of me it's not enough for me all right we got it we got we got to see we got to see what happens i mean honestly i'm just i'm dying for them to do something like i was hoping that the olsen deal would get done you know before the the lockout just so that we're like we went into the lockout with you know an ace in our pocket already like well we know you know we know austin's our first baseman already going in so that's one thing less to worry about now we just got to figure because to me this just like we said there's a lot like is laboratories going to be there still opening day or are we going to put dj at second base shouldn't be but he probably will you know what i mean and he pro and he probably will be he probably will be like he probably will be and they probably i see a lot of people talking about you know them moving geo and then putting dj at third which i don't like i don't like that at all i don't like it that at all but uh i did it i did it again i got i got a faulty um faulty wire here yeah but i mean i'll tell you this i'll tell you this uh i was thinking about this recently the last couple of days uh in regard to glaber if they if by some miracle and again i say miracle because i have it i still have it really low on my list of possibility but if by some miracle they end up with carlos correa i do feel a lot better about gleber tourists and i'll tell you that second base yeah yeah because he is not going to be able to pull that [ __ ] with korea over there he shouldn't be like that correa is not going to have that [ __ ] not not running not hustling into first base not running balls out errors and [ __ ] like correa is not gonna have that he would be an amazing influence for somebody like labor tourists he might he might unlock that potential in clever tourists that they've been trying to sell us all for years fire under his ass taurus is worrying me that he's headed down to gary sanchez's path very quickly i remember i i said it uh it was towards the end of the season it might have been by the deadline that i was like he's really working me on that he's too comfortable he's got this he's got completely something wrong there too i don't know if he's with management too that just lets him lets him do the [ __ ] he does i don't know but um that's all goes with leadership too and chemistry in the clubhouse and whatever that looks like um that the yankees obviously need to work on they they don't design that he didn't listen to the hitting coach at all no that much no that much was obvious tim's came don't worry about it and said it like yes this guy you know doesn't really stick to the uh the approach that we come up with but it's crazy because i was looking at videos of him you know early on in his career and i was just like geez like i just look at his swing and i'm just like what happened it just got it got so much low too how did you lose like like because his swing early on a thing of beauty pulling ripping ball like whatever i'm like he would turn on a pitch very very quickly yeah you would turn the pitch very very you watch him now it's like a labored swing it's labored he's completely off balance he's very very different grounded out to second base all the time little weak pop-ups barely out of the infield i'm like what happened what happened i don't know i mean yeah he's working on his hitting don't get me wrong i know some of you guys are watching this well he's been working on his hitting with judge yeah i saw the videos too friggin batting cage doesn't do much for me that's my thing i'm like what do you guys think a lot of baseball players do all off season you really think they go home and sit on the couch and and watch netflix all day no some of them are freaking games some of them might but most of these guys have been doing this their entire life so guess what their offseason requires around doing stuff with baseball i was happy i love when they see that stuff like oh my god look he's working out oh my god guys they play major league baseball you know you want to try to stay sharp to a degree he better be working out no i don't the only thing the only thing the only thing that i will say about that that i was happy to see was that that that's probably the first time i saw him in the off season working with judge and i was like that's who you need to be working out with yeah that's true if you're going to work out with anybody that uh it's i'm not saying that oh him and geo is not a good no they're good pals and friends or whatever but whatever geo's approach is to hitting he can afford to do that labor cannot quickly reconnect he needs to be with somebody like judge who's gonna get him to that laser focus or whatever because there's some i'm telling you and that's why like i said like oh yeah you end up with somebody like korea and i know correa will he will be on glaber torres ass from day one to the end of the season he won't let that kid rest he will not let that kid rest he makes a mistake you'll see it he'll call him out in the dugout he'll call him out on the field but what the [ __ ] he'll be getting those looks on the field and everything yeah yeah yeah it'll be it will be it will be something but i think i think that's how you get the potential that you need to get out of labor because that's tough that's the way that we got it out of gary's tough love works tough love to work for some reason we were told that um you know boone was just meant to be a therapist and he's not allowed to apparently do any of his other [ __ ] so that that's dr melfi that's all he's supposed to be is dr melfi and that's it so it is what it is you know the yankee off season is underway we'll see what happens um i do want to talk about the first hall of fame ballot that's been released um by jack mccaffery who released the first hall of fame ballot today may i just say this real quick these people shouldn't deserve votes so let me just read you guys some of the names that are on this barry bonds roger clemens todd helping tory hunter andrew jones jeff kent um joe nathan david ortiz justin morneau tim lindsecum john papa bond jake peavy andy pettit manny ramirez alex rodriguez scott rowland jimmy rollins kurt schilling is last year gary sheffield sammy salsa mark tashira omar visquel vasquel and billy wagner this guy here's the guys you heard all those names here's who we voted for bobby abreu todd helton ryan howard andrew jones jeff kent jimmy rollins jimmy [ __ ] rollins and omar vizquel this guy has a hall of fame vote this is how this is literally one of the dumbest ballots i have ever seen this is worse than the dude who left jeter off the ballot and we're gonna see a bunch of them we're going to see a bunch of them like this now the only one that i almost agree with that could potentially be jeff kent i agree with jeff ken what about andrew jones i agree with jeff kent um i mean all the andrew jones defense counts let me tell you something he's one i'll give him the center i'm going to be i'm going to be i was going to say i'm going to be lenient i'll give him i'm i'll give you omar vesquel for sure all right i'll give you jeff kent i'll give you andrew jones bro my man voted for jimmy rollins jimmy rollins i'm not you know and yo no offense i love jimmy no offense oh fema come on i'm not voting for jiminy rollins especially not like my thing is how you vote for jimmy rollins and not gary sheffield yeah that means like where does your brain like where does your brain go that you're like players on there not not gary how do you vote bobby or brady i don't care if they took more steroids than a horse stakes bro how do you vote how do you jimmy rollins over alex roger matter of fact let's take the several years away over scott rowland um he didn't vote he didn't vote for scott rowland you got a better case for scott fam you got a better case for billy wagner being one of the best clothes of all time this is crazy because this is gonna get so this is gonna be so bad i'm looking at this and i'm just like look are we missing someone jimmy rollins i'm about to look up jimmy jimmy i'm today i'm looking like i'm looking like this and i'm just i'm just looking at i'm just like you know i see i know what i know what the problem is here look um i may have an mvp award it's current it's before career hitter 2 400 hits i remember he won the one mv i know he won this is not a hall of famer yeah one two three four four gold gloves one two three this is a good rea a good a very not even fair i won't even say very good this is a very solid major league ball player bernie williams was borderline hall of fame this is a very solid ball player bernie williams was way better than jimmy rollins oh not even come on i mean come on way better than jimmy rollins and people have no problem telling us that bernie williams wasn't even he shouldn't be that's why he's not a part of the core four and he wasn't important and all that [ __ ] don't give me that um he's a career 297 hitter i'm like don't don't give me it people swear bernie williams 297 he almost had 300 home runs as a center fielder bro these are the same people who tell us that batting average doesn't matter and those other nonsense i don't even listen to them anymore jimmy my biggest problem my biggest problem with this ballot it's not even going to be what most people think it is because the steroid stuff and everything yeah i'm i'll give you my opinion on that my biggest problem is this is it's kurt schillings last year and you writers are going to leave him off the ballot because of his political views because of his political views and i hate that i'm i hate that i have to do this as a yankee fan because like curt schilling was the bane of my existence for a long time like when he was on arizona when he was on boston like i don't like kurt schilling as a player because he didn't do anything but hurt me but i'll be damned if i sit here and let you guys leave him off the ballots because of his political views i don't see what the hell that has to do there has nothing to do with it what he did on a baseball scene nothing at all yeah what he did on the baseball field now i guess i could say this was a criminal if he was a criminal or something well on top of it murdered people well on top of it too there was never nothing on the base before while he played that was political no or nothing on a field where you looked at i was like oh my god he made a remark like that's disgusting that's what i'm saying he never did nothing to disgrace himself as a player this is what i'm saying but no he comes out and you know he supports somebody people don't like and all of a sudden it's like now you can't get into the hall of fame after the career that kurt schilling had like that's what we're going to do so we're we're going to we're going to keep kurt schilling out we're going to keep curse shilling out but you're going to you're going to check off jimmy rollins with a straight face i got over 3 000 career strikeouts over 200 wins he pitched 3 200 innings yeah they don't realize that you're not going to see no guys like this not at all you're not going to see guys like this anymore pitchers don't even pitch into the sixth inning anymore all right what this guy was so hated he couldn't even win a cy young award bro the man listen i i really cannot believe that i have to sit up here and defend curt schilling because like i'm telling you i would scream crazy things at my television set when he was pitching against the yankees crazy things i would if you would have told me 10 you know 10 years ago 12 years ago that i'd be on a podcast defending that man i would have laughed you out the room but i guess i have to because there's no sense anymore people are gonna they will comfortably check off jimmy freaking rollins and overlook kurt schilling in his last year on the ballot so he's going to fall off the ballot because you don't like his political views and but but nobody nobody can explain to me how that how that affects what he did on the field nothing at all we were talking about this before we were talking about this before we went live with all this stuff like this kurt schilling to even think about it like i look at this list i'll pull this list up kurt schilling is a first ballot hall of famer not even and he already said he doesn't care if he doesn't get in he's like i'm just a student of the game i love the game whatever it is what it is he actually he said he'd rather be removed from the list altogether because he's like he doesn't think it's right it's it's stupid like there should be a bar set where you're just a hall of famer i'm sorry there needs to be like a standard have you reached these certain numbers there shouldn't be anybody that that allows them to judge you as a person so you don't get in because i'm gonna keep it real people are gonna say i'm getting political here they're a bunch of liberal supporters there are a bunch of liberal leaning folks who see that kurt schilling does not share their political beliefs and will not vote for him you're giving certain people again power that they probably don't fully deserve it's the same people that's holding all the steroid users no matter what accountable that either with or without steroids they should be in the hall of fame that's another argument that it's like i'm so sick and tired of having these freaking talks with people like you can say whatever you want you don't like alex rodriguez you would that's fine or whatever alex rodriguez is one of the greatest baseball players of all time he's a hall of famer i don't care what you think barry bonds he might be the greatest he might be the greatest ball player ever right i i don't care what you think about what he i don't care i don't care he might be the greatest ball player ever steroids are not the guy there was the greatest seasons ever that's that's not even comparable he had the greatest seasons of all time oh and then no no but and then people went oh but to stare away it tarnished and stained the game don't give me that [ __ ] bud ceiling knew all about that [ __ ] all everybody knew all about it everybody was turning their freaking turning a blind eye to it because they were selling tickets they were filling they were putting butts in the seats after years where baseball was losing viewership they were losing patrons at the ballpark yeah they were trying they were losing everything was the humble home run remember the um chicks dig the home the long ball chicks dig the long balls that was the big thing it was all about the home run the same the same wire and sosa i was just about to say that oh brewers he owned the brewers during the time i remember mark maguire will pull ahead of of sammy solis in a home run race sosa would go to milwaukee and hit five home runs in a three-game series he was getting fastballs down the pipe and i'm sitting in my i remember my father do something said no he'll catch up to him because we both we both love mark maguire but we love sammy sosa it was like a thing like whoever won one but yeah these this brought baseball back you know what i mean i remember sitting in front of the computer yeah when game day like first came out and no joke me and my dad we were so stupid we would sit there right and we would wait for the in-play run thing to pop we sit there like this home run home run home run in front of the computer screen and you know if you got the homework oh yeah yeah you know what i mean but that [ __ ] brought baseball back so the same cats that are getting crucified made all these people money and they turned that back on them and stabbed them in the back and my thing is my thing on top of that is you want to talk and sit on your high horse now as an organization major league baseball do whatever do whatever you want but then you know what i want all the right whatever records were set during the juice ball season i want those i want those erased well i want them erased do any of the astros will deserve to be in the hall of fame no it's confirmed they cheated that's not a that's not a rumor oh yeah but they're gonna they're gonna they're gonna get them i already saw somebody the other day telling me that jose altuve is a first ballot hall of famer or that he will eventually get into the hall of fame and listen i'm not going to be the guy who's going to fight against whether jose altuve is going to get in there or not if he has a couple good a couple more good seasons if he wins another ring if he does that and they want to put him in the hall of fame so be it i don't like the guy i think i'm not going to say that here's politically incorrect but i got you know some choice phrases that i like to refer to him as but it doesn't bother me if he gets in or not what bothers me is that if he gets in but you don't let in a rod big poppy manny ramirez barry bonds roger clement like and you don't let them in then it's gonna bother me yep then it's gonna bother it's gonna bother the [ __ ] out of me because the same way that steroids is a stain on their on their legacy forever i want 2017 to be a stain on every astros legacy forever even if we sign korea tomorrow i'm still gonna tell you guys this we can sign carlo's career tomorrow and carl's correa could play the next 10 years in the new york yankees and have freaking the greatest seasons you ever saw when five mvps do whatever if they if the hall of fame comes up and they go or whatever i'm gonna say well no 2017 happened it happened if that's the rule that you guys want to play by but the truth of the matter is that's not the rule they want to play by they they want to scapegoat these guys they want to scapegoat these guys for something that they were all complicit in yeah they were all complicit they all knew that all the owners knew it baseball knew it the players knew it come on it wasn't like some you know the funny thing is when they talk about um jose canseco yeah he was crazy but you released the book juiced and all that started all this nonsense he said it at the time he said flat out the guys they got under congress and all this stuff and testifying at the end of the day it was it was 80 of baseball including the minor leagues yeah so they're targeting the big guys because they were actually good ball players already and this is the issue this is the thing i'm saying that won the baton title one year i forgot his name alex castillo or something like that he did he had i don't know if he won the badass side but he had a really good year he admitted to taking step runs he came back and he was [ __ ] bonds could have got off steroids and still been legit mark maguire would have still been hit at 45 50 plus homers a year sammy sosa would have still been a good ball player a-rod hit 30 home runs at 40 years old what 50 as a rookie what are we talking about here like here's my thing you could you could inject people with as much steroids as you want i mean you want to try it we should try it let them give aaron hicks yeah yeah whatever the let them give aaron hicks whatever the [ __ ] bonds was taken i want to i want to see if he puts up a bonds a bonds-esque season it's not going to happen because his back-to-ball skills aren't what barry bonzas were his eye it was not what barry bonds was like these are things that you can't quantify but you want to tell me that no no it doesn't mean anything because he took stairways or whatever you know how many guys take steroids how many guys did take steroids they got suspended and sucked and still sold yeah no no but they want to tell me no no because don't give me that [ __ ] don't give me that [ __ ] you can't compare it's not the same robinson can know oh robinson cannot take steroids or whatever so now his legacy is targeting whatever well you know what robinson was taking steroids with milky cabrera why wasn't milky cabrera as good as robbie cano right melky cabrera went on to have what 102 decent two or three decent years all together they and him and keno were taking the same exact [ __ ] right the same exact [ __ ] and don't argue because there's people i know people can say oh no how do you know it's whatever trust me i know i'm dominican i've had conversations with people i know where they get the [ __ ] i know how they get the sh i know the name of the [ __ ] they were taking the same exact [ __ ] okay the same exact [ __ ] and they didn't have anywhere near the same exact results because one is naturally just better one was naturally just a better ball player better whatever right a-rod a-rod was a-rod since freaking florida broke i was about to say since college since westminster high school like don't give me that don't give me that like say you didn't like him or you didn't like his attitude and he was over here like walking around like he was baseball's playboy and all that [ __ ] i know you guys didn't like that [ __ ] you were looking for something it was the same thing it was it was this envy it was the same thing with bonds when bob's got oh this he's an [ __ ] sometimes he did something is that you see these guys you look for something to take and now you got it and now you're just gonna stick on to it and that's what that's what my problem is with the whole hall of fame the whole the whole system yeah you got a bunch of you got a bunch of freaking nerds you got a bunch of nerds who got bullied by guys like this growing up and this is how they stick it to them oh yeah well i'm not gonna you're not gonna get my vote you know the funny thing i'm telling you like when you look at that list i mean gary sheffield's a hall of famer gary chef is a hall of famers mcguire sosa schilling clemens they're all hall of famers and to to joke around and act like they're not because of a steroid usage at some point in their career because it's obvious barry bonza to take steroids his whole career it's obvious that most of these guys didn't take steroids their whole career that stuff's obvious but they were they were some of the best pitchers and hitters in the history of major league baseball but i mean leaving leaving that at that i got something funny to bring up because i didn't think it would happen this quickly marcus strowman uh stroh is gonna end up hurting his chances of getting a major deal no he already hurt them he's continuing to do it no no serious organization this dude is going to end up on the on the colin kaepernick level of things he really is i don't think he's getting out of baseball not even in the best way though so joe killer joe said earlier to me he goes pete what he's what's going to happen soon he's going to see the met signing golf man or siana visa and he's going to start calling them racist my man likes a post just now that says at stro no shocker the mets prefer the white guys over you what are you thinking in your mind nobody's taking here's my thing i would love to sit down with marcus stroman about you want to see what that's what i would say to him i would say marcus you are a terrific athlete a very talented pitcher very talented why are you allowing [ __ ] to affect the person you are you have serious issues my friend stay off twitter so you sign that and the fact that he's the type of guy that feels the need to try to shun regular everyday people you know how many people say look how much did you make last year man man the dude bags groceries he's 18 years old what's your problem you're a major league ball player go be a ball player no that's it anyone who disagrees with his line of thinking and that's like i think i said would you want him on yankees no no no yeah no i think he did whatever i also respond i said i would capital that as a hell no yeah no i don't want to do nowhere near the yankees what's that what's sad is what's sad is you could you could actually ask me the same question two years ago when he was coming off a four-plus era on toronto and i would have told you and i would have told you yeah i want to give german a shot because i really liked him in toronto and i said you know what he's a small guy i was like but his kid has so much freaking heart he's a dog out there he's tough i was i really liked him i was like yeah i was like if you would ask me back then i would have been like yeah let's do it then the whole thing came up when he was on the training block and the yankees were one of the people that people were saying like oh they're considering it they were considering it or whatever that year we could have gotten strowman we could have not gotten stronger we could have gone we could have not gotten i think you talked himself out of the yankees interest to be honest if we would have gotten him i would have been happy that year all right but he started chirping during the trading block and it didn't happen now clearly some people like people say oh well you know casper said that they you know they didn't see anything that they thought would have made them better and that's why they didn't make the move he happened to be one of the players that was moved he took it personal that they didn't say that they didn't feel like he would make them better or whatever clearly strowman wanted to be a yankee he wanted to be a yankee when he got traded from toronto he thought there was a there was a point in time that season where he thought for sure he was a yankee and then he realized he wasn't yeah he ended up being being a met yeah yeah but the talking and the constant chirping and yapping because you took it personal whatever it's just it's immature it doesn't endear you not i mean i don't care if you're if you endear yourself to yankee fans or not we don't give a [ __ ] you don't play for us but it doesn't endear you to just fans in general like you gotta look at organizations that are like clean you know i'm saying like you know organizations that just they're really you know on top of their the business of baseball if they're looking at you right now they got to really take a step back and say like but do we really need this head case here like yeah if he's is he going to get into an argument with somebody they're going to fight with the guys in the media is he going to fight with some fans is he going to like do we need that if if why do you think st louis went and grabbed steven matt's just like that or whatever some people say that st louis was still monitoring strowman as of today i don't think they make a play for him why why do you need that instead yeah i don't no i'm like um uh i i actually just this the first time i looked at like his likes on his i'm like i'm like almost in like a world of amazement here yeah people hate him like you because of your skin color i'm like that's not no no he likes a lot of stuff he likes a lot of stuff like that because he feels like does it give him like like confidence to keep doing this type i don't understand i'm very confused here and it's not see that's the thing is like i know like some people say oh of course you're gonna tell him that oh he gotta shut up but why does he have to shut up he shouldn't have to shut up he should be able to speak up not even i would say this bro i've said this about trevor bauer last year so don't come to me with that [ __ ] like oh you would you wouldn't say no i would because i said it to trevor bauer who is a white starting pitcher in the major leagues and a way better starting pitcher than strowman is i told him that he should have shut up last year when they were doing all the tweeting right all the videos because now it talks like he was actually oh yeah yeah but but i'm even though even with the sexual assault now it looks like he's actually right yeah so you know he was defending is that that he actually didn't do it but you see that that that all of a sudden i guess the right people got to trevor and when the whole sexual allegation [ __ ] came out that he was talking talking talking somebody must have got them and say you know what yup just be quiet stop talking stop or whatever let everything play out and then you'll be able to come back with it and now if he does get fully exonerated and all that which is that what that's what it looks like right now yep now he can come back and say whatever the [ __ ] he wants yeah and he's going to because he already started you know what i mean he's pretty confident because he already kind of started yeah now he can come back and say whatever he wants and you're not gonna be able to say nothing and that's what strongly could do the same thing though what do you sit there and be like bro you're you know you're saying [ __ ] about like the biggest market in the planet bro i would have taken him out literally like he's calling mets fans racist he's liking post that says there's a there's a majority of mets fans that are racist he said that about the fans he liked it so writing on the wall stro going elsewhere it's a shame most of ny wants him there's a there's a subset of racist fans that screw any of his comments towards him not being able to handle new york which is false and he likes oh that's he liked that tweet also i didn't see that i'm just like yeah but there's a ton of them there's a i didn't know this there i i just the first time i looked at this dude's likes i'm like i'd want this dude nowhere near this club here's another one no no he can't wait for me to go out there and prove all the haters wrong they're only hating on you because you're a skin color all right what what what fans i mean who are these people it has nothing to do they don't like marcus strowman because he has a small man syndrome he if i was blind if i was blind i would have a problem with marcus it's it's the attitude it's the attitude it's the attitude and that and i'm not about guys like tory hunter exactly no dory hunter talked about um there not being enough black players in baseball he talked about he talked about issues but he worried about it the right way or how about this how about how about andrew mccutchen andrew mccutchen cause he was like they shouldn't make me you know take my my dreads off what i got i'm doing it but my thing is like andrew mccutchen has talked about there now cece's a bathtub about not being enough i have never seen them come out as like well the reason is because baseball's racist i have never heard them say that i have never heard them say well the fans are racist or this one's racist that they never there's things everything is racist yeah there's things about the there's things about the game that that are like how you say they limit the interest of like you know african-american kids to want to like come up in the game which doesn't make the game inherently racist there's just certain things about it that you if you made changes it would obviously appeal more if you made the game more accessible to people you know of african-american descent and inner cities and things like that or whatever you would be able to get more there's a lot of things like that there's a lot there's a lot but to say that oh it's like no no that's that's that's not true like cece sabathia just retired from the new york yankees we love that that man is a god here he is a god like don't don't start with that [ __ ] whatever because you're that's a battle you're gonna lose that is a battle you are going to lose we love cc sabathia luis severino is way darker than you are marcus strowman there are people there are people in this new york yankee fan base who would die for submarines for real huge severino fans huge huge huge i love the guy's energy i love what he brings inside trust me trust me i mean severino will have the stadium don't let severino come back and be halfway decent he's going to have the whole stadium freaking shaking more than coal would more than people love him they can't get enough of it right they look what are we talking about here like what are we don't do that don't do that because i could see if it like if it was something whatever pointed or whatever but it's like no marcus they're they're pursuing guys who are gonna cost around what you're gonna cost but probably give them more that's what they're doing it's called business it's called business not to mention that the guys are pursuing aren't gonna probably talk as much as you do yep that's another thing that you don't wanna that he doesn't freaking own up to he never owns up to it maybe the fact that you run your mouth non-stop is turning teams off because i know for a fact if i'm saint louis if i'm atlanta if i'm not i don't want that [ __ ] yep but i care about the business of baseball and i care about what my team looks like and with the product that we're putting on the field in front of our fans and presenting to the world like maybe you don't want that that whole thing that you did a couple weeks ago we're like oh i'm never going to the yankees i'm not cutting my dreads i'm not taking off my do-rag um these tattoos ain't going anywhere you made a fool of yourself with that marcus you made it for yourself i i named like four or five yankees right at the top of my head that had tattoos all over the place yep there's nothing the yankees have no rule about wearing something over your hair under your hat luke voigt wears a headband tyler wade wore a headband plenty of guys were yeah the do-rag thing is stupid the du-rag that was very stupid blue rack comic was was ignorant on your part but not even you know that was ignorant well hey one of the things i talk about a lot is that i i talk about that a lot a lot of people make comments and they get called racist or this or that a lot of it is actually ignorance a lot of that's what it was actually pure ignorant racist is different when you're racist you can't hide your racism you know what i mean i'm not gonna i'm not gonna name a certain person out there right now that called satchel paige the great negro of his time which i've never heard in my lifetime to me that that's that's a hard limit of of actually somebody slipping up because there's tendencies there that's like calling people of color like well with the colored people over there yeah you don't say that nowadays if that that's natural out of your mouth you are a racist there's no way of denying that when you use in terms of the 1950s that are derogatory towards people that that's tough that's a tough one to fight especially in america when it was a black and white thing that that's a tough thing to argue but when you're like well marcus strowman is doing i'm like man i see it right now he already had another tweet in there talking about kevin goffman getting 175 million or so but strowman's a better pitcher so what should he get then and i'm like bro i can't wait to see what you signed for i can't wait to see who gives you money but there's what people don't understand is that there's there's a whole other side to this when it comes to business he's gonna make it about race watching when he eventually signs he's gonna make it a huge race thing he probably will 100 percent 100 because he's already making it about race judging by the tweets that judging by the tweets that he's liking but i'm i i couldn't disagree more i'm sorry i couldn't disagree more and just i don't know if you if marcus strowman ever saw this if somebody ever shows i'm a person of color right now i got my bright lights on me in the living room and stuff like that we're filming a podcast so i look a lot lighter probably than than but trust me if we saw each other in person marcus me and you are the same color bro like trust and believe a person of color just like you this is not about that it is not about that and i'm somebody i am somebody in the past who has literally said you know certain things like hey you know it's harder for you know latino managers to get to get gigs coming out of retirement and things like that when they retire off the field why does it take so so much longer for them to get shots to you know manage and to do things like that or why is it that like some latinos or or african americans will do really well in a peripheral coaching job but then they'll just disappear off the face of the earth yeah i i speak out and i'm very vocal about things like that we did on this podcast we did on this podcast yes we did we did it and we did we but we did it even before that when we were talking about tony we were talking about tony pena we were like tony fell off the face of the earth and he's an amazing freaking coach he should get a shot you should get a shot at something some sort of coach listen this is the podcast where we've literally i'm telling you all we do is keep it real when we said oh it could be oh by the way uh marcus i got uh children and a woman who was as dark as you two bro so in case in case you want to pick on in case you want to pick on the italian dude here you know you probably ain't going to go too far on that one family nah you're going to look crazy you're going to look crazy because his family is like but this is that's my thing it's like bro it's that's that's just it's ignorance man don't do that and and my biggest problem with this and i hate to go political i'ma just for one just one statement and i'm leaving at that but my biggest problem with this is that when you make everything about race you weaken the arguments that that are actually about it are true when you turn everything into a racist thing then it just seems like you're crying wolf and that's what pisses me off corrupt that's the pistol because there could be somebody out there in some sports league in some situation who's getting discriminated against because of the color of their skin being held down yeah that's right but not but not you but not you and when and when you do that when you do that and make your little tiff about race when it's not it weakens the person's argument who [ __ ] actually is about it and that's what pisses me off yeah because you as an african-american man as a person of color because you're also puerto rican you don't like to whatever but you're also puerto rican so you as a person of color knowing the struggles that people of color have you come out and are gonna make this about race knowing that there's people out there battling real race [ __ ] like stupid bro that's that's and on top of that and on top of that um i don't know much about this so it's me talking out of ignorance when it comes to marcus strowman but i would love to know what he's done for foundations i would love to know what his background is with inner city sports i would love to know what he's done in that area and the reason why i'm not attacking him for not doing it because i don't know i don't know if he has but somebody who speaks that loudly you should be leading that charge then you should be leaving that charge i've seen young black players yeah i've seen him do a couple of things so i'll give him credit there i've seen him do like a couple of couple a couple of things in terms of like giving back and like community outreach and enrichment and things like that and he should do a lot i mean so i'll give him me i'd be i'd be breaking my back doing stuff for my community if that was the case you know what i mean no doubt about especially if i'm getting a hundred plus million dollar deal very likely i mean yeah you better believe i'm finding areas um and and talking to people that we can build things there or or build stadiums or build fields have youth programs have grants for colleges so many different things that you can actually do to really assist in that in that process um so there's just a lot there so i just wanted to bring that up because it's funny because joe actually said it earlier he's like watch very soon you're going to see it start becoming about race and this whole thing that he hasn't had a deal yet and the pitchers are getting it and unfortunately that's what he's doing so yeah but he doesn't it's crazy like how can how you can be a major league baseball player a young major league baseball player who quote unquote should understand the game better as much or as better than anyone else and he doesn't even understand his own market the reason that marcus strowman isn't signed yet is because he's viewed as one of the better starters in the market the market never starts at the top yep it always starts in the middle or towards the bottom so they go there's teams who know that they're completely out of the running for certain guys and so they start at the middle or the bottom you think carlos correa is worried right now that baez is getting all this attention no because he knows that he's carlos freaking correa and he's viewed as way better than javi baez and so he is going to get his when javi baez is out of the way let the teams who are in on that level get out of the way you think robbie ray cares that the mets are talking to gosmen and that all these people are talking to god you think robbie ray's at home worrying biting his nails like oh my god maybe they don't want a cowboy on their team no right no cowboy gonna do in new york he knows that they're getting the middle tier out of the way they got verlander out of the way you got thor out of the way you got mats out of the way you got e-rod out of the way they're getting all these people all the way strowman is actually viewed by most of all most of all the baseball insiders and analysts as one of the better starters available this offseason yeah of course we already admitted that we said that already if he would just shut the [ __ ] up his market probably would be three times what it is right now but i mean i hate to break it to you bro like a lot of teams just don't want to deal with that i look if if i if i'm a team or if i'm i don't know i know if i'm if i'm in a big market i'm sorry you could say whatever you want he's not that good where i like i'm d i'll deal with it i'm sorry well you'll deal with it because it's not it's not it's not korea where korea can do all of that whatever he wants i was talking when joe said it the other day joe was like you know how long has he or he said something about i'm like well the reason why i wouldn't want it for five years is because i don't think he's gonna last because pitchers his size usually don't and that's not a knock on him unless you're like a pedro martinez but pedro is even bigger than strowman was so i mean your tim lindsay comes these guys fall off you scott kasmir's they fall off the small you don't usually see pictures that are what five eight five nine whatever he is um they probably got him listed like five ten five eleven but he's not he's like five eight you know pitchers like that don't normally last yeah i know he's not a gay he's not a gasser he doesn't throw flames but you know if he lasts five years i'll actually be shocked and if he signs a five-year deal if he has five good years i'll be amazed i'll be amazed and here's the thing most most baseball people don't expect marcus strowman to have the the last two projections are never that great the last two years that he had nobody's projecting him to do that over the next five years and yet and yet he's still projected to get a deal worth at least five years so what does that what does that tell you mark is that that you have value in the market that you've earned what you're about to receive again if you would just stop like it's like it's like you're you're like self-destructive like you you want to do damage to your own reputation right now because you're not going to damage the mets reputation right they just signed they just signed starling martay to a contract where he makes almost 20 million a year he's darker than you he's older than you like what are you talking about so they're racist they could have went and got comfortable then conforto's light skin why didn't they get comfortable they could have said hey [ __ ] it we're going to italian why not yeah no they went and got the best they went and got the guy who they thought was best for the job that's what they do that's what most teams try to do marcus i don't think it's a freaking race thing actually i thought the mets really enjoyed him in his time there and for him to start going down this path it's just like if i'm a team looking at him it's like bro this is how quickly this guy can turn on us do we really want to do this no it's a risk it's a let me put it like this this is the best way to put it right it's a it's a not needed risk because he doesn't have to do it yes it's an unnecessary risk but my thing too with him is i'm sorry i see your numbers you have a you have a couple of good years i get it i understand that but to sit there and be like i as a owner would bring in marcus strowman you have to be elite for me to disregard everything else i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you in i'm sorry you could see it however you want i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you with this added [ __ ] it's not worth it you're not worth it that's what i'm saying you're putting you're putting you're adding you're adding baggage baggage for no reason you're adding baggage for no reason bro and that's what if i was his agent i would have definitely bought it as soon as free as soon as free agency started out by listen marcus what we're going to do is we're going to log you out of twitter we are going to we're going to keep you up on on instagram but we're going to we're going to manage that for you we're going to put up you know pictures of you working out you know going out having fun but you know in terms of like you like you know going out there commenting on things or whatever we don't think that's the best thing let me tell you why they can like agents literally have this information at their fingertips i don't but if you guys want to google it this this this is googleable you can go and prove where a player's comments during free agency hurts their market and things like this is a fact i'm not making this up i'm sure his agents could bring this information to him and say look marcus we just don't need but no they let him do whatever keep his stuff and he's out there on twitter you know getting in fights with yankee fans or whatever talking about everybody good in this whatever mind you your team was way worse than the the yankees were a dumpster fire this year and when you put us next to you guys we look like [ __ ] adonises like i don't know how you throw stones when you live in a house that's that made of glass but that's fine you wanted to do that okay but that was just to be tip of the iceberg with your twitter bs now you're going after the organization that you just finished fishing for alluding to them possibly being racist because they're they're looking at kevin gossman and robbie ray over you why can't they just like those pictures better i don't understand it's just um it's just bad man it's just bad overall i mean like you said i if i was his agent i tell him flat out bro can't do it can't do it but you know well see um you know there's obviously a lot more to talk about this season um i probably probably gave marcus stroman too much time but um but uh yeah i mean probably gave him a little too much time there but i mean it is what it is we gotta we still the yankees still got a lot of moves to do a lot of moves to make um and when it happens it happens we'll be there to cover it but um we hit another goal today we hit 6 300 subs um i know we had a goal of 7 000 by january actually had a goal of six thousand by january but we've been rising so much through the ranks that we actually had to push that back to be even higher so for all the fans out there that are continuing to support and subscribing telling their friends and family about us i keep talking about it uh january's almost here so you're gonna see ny news tv for what it is and um all the other fun stuff we have coming your guys way so i mean stay tuned for that and um subscribe now put those

missed out on mats all right we're gonna spend some money just a little scoop for you guys real quick just a little scoop for you guys real quick don't be too mad when kevin gossman is about to be a a met today just a little scoop for you guys real quickly my understanding is they've been talking deal for a couple of days now and they could very well close that deal today so kevin gossman may be the next new york met but we ain't here this is not nym news this is ny news you know what i mean oh gods to the mets that's what we give the mets we give the metro gods we'll talk about some of the deal a little bit though so they they pass another skit all you guys know what i'm talking about they're passing out the skit all we know that so anyway let's jump into the new york yankees let's jump into what i talked about in the original in the original thumbnail of this video the disconnect between the new york yankees and their fan base because i wanna i to harp on this a little bit because there's a disconnect and some of it's the fans fault some of us the yankees but they did a great job with pr the yankees have done a tremendous job with pr they have done a great job with pr they've done an amazing job on the public relations side getting the fans to truly buy in to what they're doing all right and if anybody does any super chats or any questions i will get to them as soon as i can but let me finish let me finish this up here first and then we'll get into all the questions we got time to talk today i'm chilling look you know your boys healing up i had my first uh uh um physical therapy i'm all right life is beautiful life is beautiful we're all alive we're all doing a chat today can't be mad about too much right so let's get into it guys i've been talking about this for a while if you have followed me on this page you guys have heard me for a very long time talk about the obvious disconnect between the fan base and the front office now should the fan base dictate every move the yankees make no of course not but the fan base is pretty knowledgeable on what this team needs because who pays more attention to than fans do fans are right there fans are watching yes we don't get the inside information yes we don't see what happens in a clubhouse yes we don't see the type of things that you know maybe we need to have a little more insight on to make certain decisions but for years now during these chats um during my regular videos whether it was me doing a video france is doing a video or be doing a video felix doing his videos doesn't matter who it was we've really shared the same message that the yankees we know what they need to do but the yankees have not done it and we're kind of seeing that trend in that direction today i would say and you guys tell me if i'm wrong or not i would say roughly 70 percent of the fan base wanted aaron boone gone because they have felt he is not the proper manager for this club what do the yankees do to start the offseason boom bring aaron boone right back and they tell us to our face he's one of the best managers in the game they have told us to our face he's not a puppet they have told us to face analytics or not making all the decisions they have told us to her face well you know ask brian i told him you go out there brian you go out there and you get joey gallo even if we go over what do the yankees do brian cashman comes out and goes no you know we stayed under the luxury tax we gave up some more guys that he pay everything we stayed under so not only is there a disconnect between the team and the fan base there's a disconnect up top we also heard i'm just gonna throw quotes at it because this is so damn obvious now we have also heard brian cashman come out and go well um no aaron knew aaron boone knew before he signed here that phil nevin his best friend was gone aaron boone comes out 20 minutes later and goes well if i knew that i don't think i would be here right now what excuse me sir and what are we getting again this off season we are getting the same exact messaging once again we're being told guys we will spend all the money in the world we'll do we got there is no limits now by all means should the new york yankees come out and say we're not going to spend of course not because you don't know what could fall to you but there is a severe disconnect among this club and its fan base the fan base i've been saying for years we need some speed we need athletes we needed a lefty batter so which brian cashman did go do we need versatility we need guys who go first to third guys remember let's get those likes up i want to try to hit 200 likes while we're in here right now we're about we're about to hit over 60. got almost 200 people in here so let's get those likes up and share please share greatly appreciate it but that's where we are we got the fan base feeling that we know what this team needs to do but they have not done it the fans have had an idea of what this team needs to do for years now i'm not talking about this off season and we're going to get to this off season right after this but there is a major disconnect here how do you fix that i don't know they've told us analytics isn't playing the pure role of everything here but it's obvious it is it's about as clear as day it's about as clear as day and unfortunately you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into this idea you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into when the yankees will come out and say hey guys we tried it didn't work out they'll sit there and argue with you well they tried well the yankees tried they went out there to get somebody so with that being said let's talk about the fan base a little bit and where we are as a whole because i've seen this message a lot yesterday black friday wasn't too much of a black friday shopping in a sense of saving for the new york mets they go out there they make multiple moves escobar connor and of course starling martay who was the big drop of the night the cherry on top of the knife for the new york mets and i see many comments and many tweets by yankee fans saying all the yankees aren't gonna spend that much money oh but he's 33 years old oh but the yankees didn't they weren't really serious about him were they this this that that is the part of the fan base who will never dare to put enough pressure on this ball club where it needs to be and unfortunately that mindset and that idea is what the beat riders are also pushing the majority of them it's what the yes network tells you it's what all the wfans and all the stations out there talking about the yankees that have a platform we're not gonna do that here now by all means if we have a teammate who feels that way they're allowed to do what they want they're allowed to come on ny news and say it because that's their realness that's what they really believe in that's okay i'm here to tell you what pete's realness is ny news real talk for the real fan real talk for the real fan that's what you're always gonna get here so when i'm told and i'm looking at these comments dude is 33 years old you wouldn't give him four years because he's too old have you seen martay's body type have you seen marte's body type fam if you think 19 million a year for stalin marte is a bad signing you're out your freaking mind and if you also have the idea that that's out of the range for the yankees they go like another club i gotta keep it real with you for a second if 19 million is too much for the yankees to get an elite center fielder great speed great shape great defense great good arm great speed lead off hitter he checks every single box if you guys remember i talked about the video the other day that will never happen of course cedric mullins but i talked about it because it was news and it's exciting and it would make sense those are the type of guys that check every single box the yankees and yankee fans feel it was too old he was too old he was too old because apparently yankee fans have forgot that we are a win-now team yankee fans have forgot that we need to win a world series yesterday and when you lose that mindset you have now given in to new ownership you have now given in to the hal steinberg and new york yankees you have now given in to being mediocre you have now given in to the excuses you have now given in to second third fourth and fifth place that's what you have now given into so by all means by all means does this really affect the yankees in a major way that they can't have a good offseason no no so maybe there is a slight overreaction and that's okay guys here's another thing here's another thing folks and this is something that a lot of yankee fans love to tell people you're overreacting sure the yankee fans they're allowed to yankee fans are allowed to overreact we go to a ball game and it's like going to disney world we have every right to overreact not me personally because i i don't look am i upset about marta yes i think the yankees could have made that deal i think they could have went a different route but that's what i talked about uh plan one a two a three a c a four a a one one a one b one c there's a lot of different plans the yankees can do to have a terrific ball club for 2022. that is where my problem comes in because again yes is getting martay something where the yankee fans should just be overly angry about or overly mad about or be so upset that they feel like nothing could work is that is that potentially something that the yankees could look at and say this is is something that uh um nothing we do now is gonna work because the mets got martay so oh no we're in trouble no and that is not the way you should run your organization so i understand where some of these yankee fans go guys you're overreacting that's okay but to make the little minor excuses that you're seeing yankee fans make is horrible it is horrible it's pathetic it's terrible you cannot do that let me tell you why and let's get into what the yankees may or may not do we'll also start getting into your guys question so i'll start answering your guys questions and go from there because here's the problem okay do you guys remember and i was talking to my good friend rob before this do you guys remember when aaron boone had a press conference and he was explaining that um g and carlos stanton is a unicorn because and i'm not even making a joke out of this i know i make a joke about the unicorns but stay with me for a second he was making the point that giancarlo stan has it all the guy does everything he could do everything he's like a unicorn he's like that guy he's magical when he's hot he's magical he's he's something else to watch that's the yankees franchise guys this is what bothers me that's the yankees franchise their franchise is a unicorn in that sense not unicornios they're not gonna get hopefully not eating unicorn ears all year that is the new york yankees organization let me explain to you they got money no matter whether hal says it or not they got money they got prospect capital a ton of prospect capital they got everything as a general manager when you go to the new team like the yankees you get look we got money to spend we got prospects to deal we need to fix a few positions and then on top of that on top of that oh you have an unbelievable stock pile of free agents and players that are available via trade think about that for a second again repetitive pete here but you got one a one b one c one d one e one f one g blah blah blah blah blah blah let the wall keep going and have a different plan and it's gonna end up good better than how you started in 2021 that's the problem that is my issue you need to be aggressive here you know when you hide in the bushes so to say do you understand when you when you when you duck for cover because you're looking over the safari you're the lioness you're ready to prowl and hunt you're looking you're waiting you're ducking you're waiting for something to get closer to you if you're doing that for the big catch cool and i'll play devil's advocate here maybe that's what the yankees are doing maybe that's what the yankees are doing because let's let's be real let's look at the whole picture marcus simeon isn't signed seeger is not signed corey is not signed and story's not signed the mariners just got frasier teams are making moves right for the yankees very much you can sit low you could beat a lioness here right you could prowl you could say oh look at this look at this that buffalo's getting close whatever the hell they eat and then boom hope you're not wearing headphones i was probably loud you could sit there and wait you could sit there and wait but that's for the big fish that is for the big fish the yankees can't just sign a big fish to say that's it that's an off season can not work that way seeger makes the yankees a little better but he doesn't do much correa makes the yankees better but he doesn't do much story and simian make the yankees better but it doesn't do it all these cats are out here posting videos of aaron hicks looking like an old man instead of feel making a dive hey look at this guys oh we got a centerfielder baby you guys buying the [ __ ] oh no this cat's out here posting videos of aaron hicks fan aaron hicks doubles in the gap to left field he sucked the bat out and the ball barely went over to do attack should have been should have been caught in center field you saw the route he took on that ball he looked like [ __ ] my man looked like he gained 28 32 pounds and it's slower than he was before he came back hey you cat these cats are listening to these fools they're bragging about it look at our center fielder are we doing what are we doing and these same cats are saying martay's too old these cats are telling you aaron hicks is better than morty these cats are telling you you not me you these are the cats you guys are subscribing to oh let me run let me write these guys quick they're the best oh my god oh let me go buy their [ __ ] oh oh these are the cats you listening to this is why ny news is doing what it's doing because enough is enough of the [ __ ] these cats are pushing aaron hicks on you my man looked like he gained 30 pounds in center field slower [ __ ] to the ball made a bad slide and made the catch and he gets a pound in his chest like look at me what are you doing aaron hicks but wait wait wait these same people fans or whoever these same people will tell you aaron hicks is better than mate and they wouldn't have signed martay because he's 32 years old yankees gave your boy seven years the yankees gave you a boy seven years and he get an aaron look no no disrespect hicks has gotten worse year after year he's gotten heavier year after year he's gotten worse defensively year after year i'm gonna get to the super chats guys i just gotta make this point because it cracks me up year after year that dude got bigger he's gotten slower all right year after year but these same cats to tell you stalin martay who is ripped from head to toe is too old my man still burning on the bases all right fam let me get to these questions let me get to these questions i can't i can't i can't it's your boy i greatly appreciate the super chat fam remember when you warned yankee fans that it wouldn't be a surprise to you if they they're cheap and didn't go out and help go out to help become better this offseason i do it's your boy i was i i said that before everybody else before was cool for the beat riders and everybody else to talk about the yankees not spending 300 plus million i was the only guy saying it because again i was told by four people including a fifth recently but i also said maybe they get a 265 maybe i didn't know that but they're not gonna do what everybody expected and not gonna drop this monster contract on anybody and i the people i was told this that told me this i truly believe i believe them deeply if they told me something right now i tell you that's how i feel about him ella yankeeking says well well well it looks like justin was right since 2018 cashman is bottom five gm but no justin is crazy no well i think you're justin i don't think you're right about that i still don't think you're right about that i don't think brian cashman is a top bottom gm i don't think brian cash is a bottom gm he's done a lot of good moves at the end of the day if it comes to spending that's not brian cashmere that's hal steinberg my problem with brian cashman is he holds on to guys way too long doesn't mean he's a terrible gm it just means he has belief in his system and that's okay but when you're the new york yankee you can't necessarily build your club that way you have to have you have to have you have to have a mindset of certain guys we want to hold on to but we cannot risk keeping them in the name of getting a robbie ray a cl um uh garrett cole you can't hold on to him in those type of positions it's the same thing right now when we talk about matt olsen you got yankee oh no i wouldn't do all that well you got to give up something and you can't be in love with prospects enough to miss out on that so i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say that at all brand especially speaking way too much facts right now brandon this just obvious [ __ ] you know what i'm saying this is just obvious stuff it's just that we are living in a time where fans are eating it up and that's the crazy thing guys if you don't mind please please please please hit the like button i greatly appreciate that we are about halfway to 200 of where i wanted to be so if you guys don't mind please go ahead and do that i would greatly greatly appreciate it and we will continue on let me just see i got a message here all right perfect um yeah but i've seen so many messages guys and i'm not looking to i'm not looking to i'm not looking to [ __ ] on any yankee fans i'm not looking to to do anything like that my whole thing for when it comes to everything that we're talking about here is this is you can't say not to saying that martay was too old to sign to a four-year deal i i don't under i don't get that i don't get that i really i really do not understand that at all to sit there and talk about marte's age and this a win now club what does that mean this team needs a win now this team can't sit back and go all right maybe in 2024 we're gonna win they can't do that they can't do that anthony with the super chat my good friend thank you i think i'm more frustrated that the yankees have been relatively quiet not so much at the met sign martay who would have been a great addition to the yankees hope something happens with them soon well that's what i'm trying to say anthony is that look i'm not i don't think any yankee fan should be you know saying oh the off season's over because we didn't get marty that's not it the problem overall is how quiet the yankees have been as of right now we stand to have aaron hicks batted back in center field and gary sanchez back as the catcher after what gary sanchez has done guys bear with me again for a second after everything gary sanchez has done you still have a fan base who will tell you they can't miss out on his production who is better than him defense fam defense is production how in the hell can you keep this guy as the catcher at his ball club i i i don't understand the mindset of many people in this fan base i don't get it i don't understand it people act like defense has no importance over being a catcher defense is production this guy caught a ball 25 friggin feet from home plate and never tagged the base runner this guy could barely block a ball in the dirt pitchers are probably scared to throw a ball in the dirt this guy towards the end of the year had three starting pitchers the top three arguably in the rotation not want to throw to him this guy got a pop-up call to him went backwards turned the wrong way went back forward and never even touched the ball this guy has not started the playoff game in two years was gary sanchez a rookie last year am i missing something have we not had more than enough time to see who this player is have we not have more than enough time to see who this player is i am completely utterly shocked by what a lot of this fan base is preaching to fans a lot of the people with a platform is preaching to fans you're not gonna see it on this platform i tell you right now we're just gonna keep it real with you you're not gonna see it here real talk for the real fan that's it i don't get it i don't get it me and francis said it for a minute we said look you're gonna know quickly what the yankees are really up to by the little tiny moves they make they ain't done jack [ __ ] the yankees could have went out there and said all right we're going to trade for a catch we're going to sign a free agent we're going to do one of these things just to give the fan base an idea of our this is the direction we headed as of right now fans have every right to be upset because guess what we're standing pat right now can a lot change of course we got the non-tender right here i wouldn't be shocked if something happens if they make a trade or two because again remember when you have the non-tender here if another team non-tender somebody that you want you got to have room for them so i could see the yankees make a move to clear up a little more space i could see that happening but the yankees really going to sit back and give gary sanchez more money for what and it's obvious the last few years we don't have coaches that have enough balls to say all right hold on this [ __ ] needs to work we don't have that it's obvious we don't have that so that's my thing we obviously have not had that we don't have that bring simeon to the bronx thank you for the super chat sign eddie rosario put him in center field no way in hell a contended team can depend on hicks to be your starting center fielder 100 love the content well i thank you for that my friend and look man that's the thing you hit it right in the that's why i love i love my people that come in these chats i love and look guys the yankee fans that think like us that want to win now we're the majority we're still the majority we're still the majority ny news is going to be so damn big it's going to make your guys head spin soon enough okay where the majority but you hit it right in the head right on the head the yankees are one of the only teams that will tell you flat out after teams that want to win that will tell you flat out after injuries all right well look we're getting severino back so don't worry about anything all right guys don't worry we think we think gary sanchez is going to improve he's worked so hard this offseason aaron hicks did well in in winter ball we know he's ready to give us that bats he's going to have a terrific season they're the only win-now team who will tell you that their excuses that you know is [ __ ] is what's going to make them better because guys again i will never change my opinion of this if the yankees go out there they eventually get a guy like sager seeger but they still have hicks and center and gary behind the plate what the hell is the point what the hell's the point what the hell is the point brandon then joey vlogs thank you so much for the super chat i appreciate it jonathan jonathan alvarez i'm not calling i got i got to put you on the spot he says yes we had a majority but jonathan you are a fan who goes all the way back with me all the way back to when i broke the news about gary sanchez nobody else broke that news i broke the news about gary sanchez about the team being upset with how he came into training out of shape he didn't hit the weight they wanted i broke that news but i'm asking jonathan because i'll tell you why jonathan was a huge gary sanchez fan i bet jonathan doesn't want him behind a plate in 2022. jonathan has had enough and jonathan you can throw it in the chat and darius darius glover my good friend he said the non-tender deadline is tuesday to 30th that is right tuesday to 30th so it wouldn't shock me to see the yankees make a move or two before that but jonathan knows jonathan was a big fan he was a big fan of gary he he he remembers all my videos he remembers all of them many people in here that go back with me you know three or four years remember all that stuff that's right it's so dumb that they treat guys coming back from injury as they were trade acquisitions that is so friggin true and that's what the yankees do the yankees have done that for a minute now brandon and joey vlogs i greatly appreciate that my friend yankees need to fix the issues and get a first baseman and a shortstop who can provide uh provide defensive defensively and offensively it's not how if not how should sell the team yankees need to fix the issues to get a first baseman in the shore someone can provide yes 100 true 100 true and that's the thing man the yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up they know what needs to happen we all know what needs to happen we know what needs to happen it's that simple we understand that the problem is going out and doing it so when yankee fans sit back again and they're saying oh we didn't sign marte oh boohoo to the fans who upset guys it's not about the fans being upset it's that we have a lot of [ __ ] to do we have a lot of [ __ ] to do if signing seeger is all we had to do then all right this would be me right now yeah guys you know um something's gonna happen give it a little time don't be panicking it's all right you know it's only it's only uh it's not only about to be december don't worry about it guys it's all right things will happen that would be me right now but that ain't what this team needs and everybody knows that this team needs a catcher they need a center field or at least a backup they need a first baseman they need a shortstop they need pitching those are five main spots and you know the scary thing where is it at guys up the middle catcher shortstop center field winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle okay can't have gary sanchez your catcher you can't have aaron hicks i'll be nice you can't have aaron hicks as the full-time center fielder and you got to have a short stop who at least can feel the ball very well you got to have all that if the yankees don't do that there's too much that's too much so you can't sit there and oh they're waiting in the bushes for deals no no no can't happen like that can't happen that way it can't happen that way it can't happen like that and you guys know that give me one second guys i just got a message i wanted to take a look at one second guys all right cool cool cool uh tyler i appreciate that the yankees are serious about winning the yankees are serious about winning if sanchez's catcher hits it i'm assuming you mean not serious about winning uh catcher hicks in center field and torrez's team period yeah i mean 100 no no i think i know what tyler man tyler meant not serious um he just missed that word there i'm pretty sure uh knowing tyler i'm pretty sure because he has the same mindset as where i've been but that's where it is that's where it is right now um i'm trying i'm trying to corroborate a rumor here that i just got from somebody else um hold on one second guys so i i just got a i'll wait to corroborate it a little more but my understanding is somebody just said that the yankees actually and not somebody but i obviously don't want to say who the person is but um i just got a message saying that the yankees have actually talked to the braves about dansby swanson so i don't know how much legs that has i don't know how realistic that actually is but um give me a second and we will i want to corroborate that with a few other people first before um we go anywhere else with that but my understanding is that the yankees have have had a conversation i don't know how much it is but i've had a conversation about dansby swanson let's go to the super chat ro thompson the family right here the problem is the yankees have a plethora of issues and it appears as if they aren't operated with any sense of urgency that's it raw raw you hit it right on the head that that's it that's the thing right there you could be the lioness you could wait for the prey to get close you could wait for the slick move but not when you got five or six moves you got to make not when you got that many not when you got that many jonathan alvarez family from way back in the day i wish sanchez nothing but success but it can't be on this club yankees need to prioritize a defensive first catcher i'm over it jonathan i'll pat myself on the back i'll pat felix on the back and tell you guys that we've said it for years now because we have that that's not even taking credit for get credit i don't care about credit it was obvious it was obvious to me back in the day when i heard what i heard i was like oh [ __ ] they got a problem here and if you don't believe me you could go back to i think it was mlb.com scouting report on gary sanchez before he got there right before he got there my understanding of it was that even in a scouting report i read it recently this is before he came up and did what he did in the in the scouting report excuse me and the scouting reporter even says they don't know if he could consistently stay at catcher because of his work ethic or wanting to be a catcher the actual heart of wanted to be a catcher playing that position there was rumors that even then he wouldn't do it so we'll see yeah guys i'll be honest with you like i said before i'm i'm not gonna tweet that out as of right now just because i haven't cooperated with anybody else but the person who told me is is usually very very spot on so again that could just be a hey we want to check in to see what's available what options we have is it a possibility it could be one of those but that's again something that gm's do doesn't mean there's loads of interest it doesn't mean it's something that could happen but that that's exactly what a gm would do that's the type of moves gm's look to do you know you you figure out what's out there and what's a possibility so i'm sorry i'm just messaging back real quick um but again that's where it is and guys we have almost 300 people in here can we please get those likes up i would love to hit 200 today um i would love to hit 200 today while we're in here we probably got about 20 or so minutes to go and we will go from there sanchez bat aged 12 years in three years yeah there was there was definitely a little bit concerned there uh my concern is that cash probably not even on the hot seat considering they let him yeah i mean you know it's almost like family my understanding is and again i get some information on that i probably have a lot more information come next week um after i get back um after i get back from some travel which you guys will know a lot about what i'm doing uh probably on thursday night thursday night is it thursday yeah thursday night thursday night next week um you guys will probably know a lot of what's uh of what's going on and what i'm doing and and some pretty fun stuff that's going on next week um but i should get a lot of good information um out of all that stuff but yeah i mean i mean those are the those are those are the concerns right now who do i prefer in centerfield reynolds and mullins either one of them if that was the case either one of them could tell martay i would take him in a heartbeat but look let me even send something back to you guys if the yankees came today and they said all right look um maybe we add robbie ray maybe we had trevor story with that being said here's what we have to do though and we also add a decent a decent catcher center field we are gonna have floriel fight for that spot in spring training so there could be a a a platoon situation where we make that work and i'm i'm very much okay with that i'm very much okay with that and that's the thing that i've been telling people i'm not the yankee fan that's saying we need to get correa we need to get rey we need to get all the top guys if we don't do that i'm not angry we just have so many damn moves that we can make in an off season where there is loads of talent available free agency and via trade and you got the prospect capital to do it and you got the money to make signings when you can do all that you got to be able to go out there and do it it's as simple as that it's as simple as that so yeah yankee fans have every right in the world to be upset yeah i don't think mullins could happen and i'm just keeping it real i don't think mullins could happen i i don't i don't think mullins necessarily happens i don't think it would one because of what of what it would take on the yankees side and i don't see i don't see brian cashman ever giving up what it would take to get mullins to the rival orioles and by all means their rival because the only team they beat up on is the yankees so i don't think brian cashion wants to make that much better in the years to come when he got a lot of good guys coming up so you know what i mean we'll see what happens there darius says anything big likely comes today or tomorrow or today or tomorrow teams have until wednesday however uh teams have to get physicals and paperwork all done by wednesday at midnight which takes time that is correct so you're right you're definitely right you probably got today and tomorrow to really get things done and then you got all the work to do after that so you're probably looking at the weekend to be somewhat popular maybe monday a little bit to go from there mullins is a one-year wonder i think that's a hard one to say i think there might be a little bit of an adjustment period but i wouldn't necessarily say mullen's gonna be a one-year wonder yankee fans love to say that about players i noticed that robbie ray's a one-year wonder mullen's a one-year wonder reynolds isn't that good martay is too old blah blah blah blah blah but our guys are great come on fam come on stop it stop it stop it jonathan alvarez my good friend thank you so much again for the super chat fam cashman and hal are asleep while the other team's feasting on free agents and yankees will get up just in time to pick up the crumbs left over it's concerning man like i said if you if you're looking for the one big move you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you are looking for the one big move you could certainly be the lioness waiting for the hunt you can do that you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you're waiting for that one move you got every chance in the world and every opportunity in the world do that if you got multiple moves to make you really got to get a ball you really got to get a go on it you got to get a go on it because guys i could i could go over this in multiple different ways and i'll do it right after i read this super chat from li yankee king hey if i ran this team i would have already traded dj hicks stanton chapman holmes lucky peralta rodriguez tayon sanchez voigt brought in prospects to help us and i would have offered one year 30 million a story but li yankee king that makes no sense and i got to keep it real with you that makes no sense at all you're trading all of your good players away a lot of your salary i get that but you're trading a lot of your plays that help you win now for one guy that's not gonna help you win now because of all the moves you made lord why did you burden me with this oh my god i had i couldn't pick i couldn't be older and talk about the yankees on youtube when the dynasty is i had to choose now i had to choose the yankees now fam you're training everybody you're training everybody to give 30 million a story i love trevor's story but you got to put him on he can't beat a guy what do you want what are you doing mushrooms oh my god why why do i do this why do i do this for the love i do it for the love i do it for the love of my yankees i do it for the love of my yankees i do it for the love you have our affirmation that's my affirmation fam you trading everybody and most of those guys you have to pay all that contract gonna have to pay most of those guys contract to move them and on top of that then you're going out to give 30 million dollars to one player what do you do jonathan vr would be a terrific pickup jonathan vr will be a terrific pickup my man on mushrooms my man is on mushrooms my man is on mushrooms my man is straight up on mushrooms he's hallucinating right now ed kemp manaya roberto perez modesty rizzo olson those are a lot of moves and and and you know that was the expectation going into this that was the expectation going into this well ella yankeeking has cracked my code i can't have him do a super chat and not answer it i can't so ella yankee king has cracked my code i can't be an [ __ ] like that i can't be an [ __ ] like that there he goes again ella yankee i also would have traded for heim yamamoto means signed rey signed judge and rizzo all that stuff's not that easy man all that stuff's not that easy so anyway i read it i read it lie i read it i read it i read it you got me you cracked my code thank you for supporting that wide news i greatly appreciate it jorge no no word on jose ramirez none none whatsoever no news at all jose ramirez i actually shocked i thought that would be i actually thought there would be a lot more rumors about jose ramirez but um no nothing at all yet so nothing at all yet on that one um let me see something here guys one second i just want to make sure i get updated where everything that i have right now um no that is nothing good okay all right all right all right all right cool cool cool cool um olsen bassett kelly marte is where i think the yankees are trying to shop those would all be terrific those would all be terrific those would all be terrific i don't even think hell knows how to run a business bro how do you throw how do you throw down like your dad 10 million to 5 billion he made a lot of mistakes how pony up you know it's hard look i understand one of the i understand you're in a big look i understand house thing you know you're in a big big shadow everybody expects you to be your father maybe you see things differently and that's okay so it's not about spending money it's about the way the yankees have spent the money so the payroll is still large but look at the way the yankees have spent the money that's the problem that's the problem that's the major issue it's not that the yankees are cheap or anything like that it's that they have spent the money the wrong way that's the problem the problem is how they've spent the money why do yankees not in on either floriel or suzuki suzuki i honestly i don't know much about floriel on the other hand i mean i would be happy with florio starting it's like i've told people before floriel bats low okay you bat him low in the order he has great speed he's gonna steal 20 plus bases i believe he's gonna hit 20 plus home runs because he got power like that to all fields plays a great defense has a great arm why would you not let a guy like this play at the major league level right now why would you not give him that opportunity over aaron hicks who is now playing winter ball you could show teams that look he's healthy he's playing maybe you could trade them maybe you could add a decent prospect maybe you could add a decent prospect and move on from tyler says sign vr who i would love sign seeger sign rey trade for olson midday madaya sign suzuki for center field trade sanchez get stallings in a trade you know that's a lot of moves there and a lot of different things that could happen but we'll see but but we'll see you know those are moves that could happen those are somewhat realistic a lot of those i don't know if they spend the money on both of those guys on sega and ray but they could but these are things that could happen so it's not like none of these things are unrealistic you know you talk about some of these trades and everybody feels like it's unrealistic it's not it's not necessarily unrealistic that's the thing that's the thing i don't see sure coming to new york unless the yankees blow them away and again guys i don't see that jonathan alvarez my fan my my my fam thank you so much i appreciate that man pete no matter what god is good and is always faithful facts that is 100 correct my friend that is 100 correct and i greatly appreciate that i greatly appreciate that um so let's see let's see let's see let's see let me just update this here i just got to keep checking my messages i am getting messages um right that's just my team nothing there nothing there all right cool um but we'll see man we'll see um yeah whoever just said uh gaussman to the mets per sources i don't know if it's done yet but i was told i think i said it once this uh once this started that gosmen to the mets is very likely i was told yesterday too they've been discussing a deal for a couple of days and a lot of people expected to get done so the mets may make another big deal today no this yankee team is not a world series team right now nowhere near it every other team is getting much better hey pete what would it take for the yankees to trade for joey bart involving gary sanchez well probably a ton because uh bart is likely gonna be the starting catcher um you know he's likely gonna get a chance to start um he's he's one of the top catching prospects in baseball i don't see any scenario where the giants give him up i don't see any especially not for gary sanchez the giants are looking to win a world series the yankee the giants are looking to win a world series so yeah adam king is likely just taking what i what i'm saying and and posting it because he's uh he's a little bit nuts he's a little bit nuts think a move happens before a lockout i actually do i do think a move happens before the lockout i do think a move happens before the lockout what move it is i don't know to be honest and to be honest rumors have been light rumors have been light usually by this time i get a lot of good information i haven't had much i got more information from other clubs than i've got mainly for the yankees so rumors have been light rumors have been light cohen's about to have another hold my beer yeah cohen's the type of dude that makes that makes deals like cracking uh walnuts and he just sits there down in peanuts and [ __ ] and he just i get him on the phone yeah go ahead off from it ah throw it up by 10. i just saw that it's actually the first thing that popped up my screen to yes network you know what your phone needs right now a little brick gardener that's what oh my god to me i tell you guys i tell you guys uh wow wow wow wow wow wow oh my goodness guys well with that being said fam marlins look marlins make i know a wonderful trading partner with the yankees the marlins make a wonderful trading partner with the yankees gary sanchez luke voight miguel anduhar and i know a lot of teams aren't sure about the dh international league but that's apparently one of the things they actually all agree on so my understanding is in 2022 there will be a dh in the national league that's not one of the things holding anything up that's not holding nothing up so the marlins and the yankees make a lot of sense look a lot of these dh types the yankees have could make a lot of sense to a lot of clubs he's just going out there and doing it so guys with that being said i am going to get about my day we bought the the live christmas tree i'm not though is it a live christmas is that what you call it the real real christmas tree you know we do everything real here everything here is real even the christmas tree is real got the got the real christmas tree yesterday so we're going to put that baby up today um everybody going to do that we're going to have a good time uh designated spitters will still be sunday 5 p.m we will do a pre-recording we can't do the live um a lot of things didn't uh didn't work up work out for that so um we will do the pre-recorded sunday 5 p.m designated spitters don't miss it and guys again you guys know december is already next week december is already next week so the major announcements are coming you guys will see the major announcements of what ny news tv will consist of again you don't want to miss it you don't want to miss any of it at all you're going to want to be there and lie yankee king gets in right before i end it and i got to answer this pete the reason i'm trading all the players i'm trading is because the window is shut and roster is aging and i also contend it and i also contend this year i attached prospects to hick stanton and dj stanton got a no tray claws you know dj's gonna be hard to move and i wouldn't move dj dj is a guy i think that's a win now type player for the yankees and yeah you just need one now guys man you can't just go out there and say we're gonna reset and the window's not necessarily closing this team got a two to three year time frame to still win they just gotta win now they can't consider winning in 2024 they can't consider winning the 2025. they got to go out there make the moves to win right now they got to go out there and make the moves the win right now simple as that so guys again like i said ny news tv announcements probably going to be the week of december 13th that way on that day you guys will find out who all the new podcasts are who's everybody new joining um the the other things we'll be doing on the channel membership is going to be

🔥 🚨 Is Mullins a Real Possibility for the Yankees? @SimonettiSource

hey everybody what is going on pete samnetta here for nyy news there's a little rumor out there today saying that the baltimore orioles may look into seeing what offers would be for one cedric mullins now people are immediately probably gonna say uh impossible can't happen and i'm probably gonna agree with you it's probably impossible probably can't have it but it's fun to talk about so i'm gonna come here and talk about this because why the hell not folks you would probably be hard pressed to find a better fit for these new york yankees than cedric mullins he checks all the boxes center field yankees have a need lefty bat the yankees have a need speed the yankees have a need versatil i'm not versatilium sorry athletic ability the yankees have a need leadoff hitter the yankees have a significant need he checks all the box and arguably it's hard to sit there and say okay well anybody even has been rumored as available who would make more sense than a cedric mullins makes a ton of sense in the world if you even think about it we'll get into what it may take after but look at cedric melons real quick cedric mullins is 27 years old last year he had a 5.7 war 30 home runs 291 average 175 hits 91 runs scored 59 rbis 30 stolen bases on base percentage 360 slugging percentage 518 ops 878. this is one of the elite outfielders in major league baseball with everything he does and no i'm pretty sure his second half wasn't as great as his first but still just an absolutely terrific season for cedric mullins he was an all-star we know that um ended up actually being ninth in mvp voting he did also win a silver slugger award so if you're the baltimore orioles right now and you're looking at this type of thing for a guy like a cedric mullins right you're saying hey you know it's almost like brian reynolds in a sense is that you're sitting back saying he's available you know what i mean and you mean with orioles you know we don't expect that that we're very very close to competing you know he could be available but at the end of the day you're gonna have to really knock our socks off here to make a deal work that's the only way you move central malls and i tell you what for the orioles it's smart if you're the baltimore orioles this is smart this is a smart way for you to do business because if a team does come knock and go hey look this guy fits our mold perfect here's what we're offering and they throw at you you know maybe two top fives two top tens uh four guys overall maybe a fifth in the lower level and you're like you know what where the orioles we know we got some decent young pitchers coming up we got maybe arguably the best catching prospect in the game we see what um what's what some of the guys on the club uh did this year your mount castles your your haze your mullens we've seen what these guys have have done and what they could potentially become if a team goes out there goes look we got some some you know starting pigeon prospects that are closing in that are getting close to being there maybe we can work a deal around that cedric mullins by the way is you know it's not like he has some big salary or anything coming along with them so you would have just about every single team interested in this guy so this is a very very smart time for the baltimore orioles to consider moving him and even flirting with the idea of moving whisk again teams are going to throw a lot out so when it comes to the yankees cedric mullins would be a free agent that's 31 when he when he's 31 years old that is in 2026 so you'll have for 22 23 24 25 26 so you're having for four full seasons moving forward and again for any team any team at all that is huge that is absolutely huge for every team that is something that you want so when you look at the yankees you know let's get to it i'm first of all i'm gonna say this right now one there's two there's two things here one i don't think the orioles would be extremely inclined to say hey yanks here you go they might be but still if they look to compete in two to three years they'd still be competing against somebody they traded and made the other club better so i think that's the hesitancy there and two brian cashman ain't ever gonna give up what it would take to land cedric mullins cedric mullins is again what you would assume the pirates would ask for for brian reynolds so guys you know when you when you think about the new york yankees you got to think about their top prospects the baltimore orioles have every right in the world to ask for the top of the line guys from the new york yankees they don't have to ask for anything less at all they could ask for anthony volpe jason dominguez oswald peraza luis hill clark smith austin wells trey ceni uh uh uh luis medina davey garcia alexander vargas uh everson pierre who they just added hayden with nasa westnesski um oswaldo cabrera josh bro i mean it don't matter you can ask for whatever the hell you want if you're the baltimore orioles because again if the yankees did want him they got to knock your socks off and first of all at the end of the day i don't see him doing it when we talked about on a couple of lives and on designated spitters when we brought up the idea of a brian reynolds trade we immediately said well you know i would give jason dominguez up in a deal like that because brian reynolds right now is kind of what you hope jason dominguez could turn into um he obviously has this huge potential on his back it's a lot on a young kid only in a ball very very raw to professional major league baseball so he has time to develop and you never know how the development could go but again you got luis heal who i think could be attractive uh luis medina who could be attractive guys who are you know legitimate starting pitching prospects uh austin wells probably not so much considering they got roche ruchman rouchman whatever his name is but you guys know who's if you're any interest at all in baseball the orioles got one of the best catching prospects in the game volpe of course to be interested in but we don't see him going anywhere at all but any of those guys so dominguez peraza heal schmidt uh sweeney potentially medina uh ken waldechuk uh uh yo andre gomez garcia i mean it's gonna take four of those guys if you're the orioles it's gonna take four of those guys dominguez potentially heal medina and let's say gomez or smith i mean if it's me i'mma win that kind of guy i'm going for that i'm a win now kind of guy i'm a win now kind of guy that's the route i take that is the route i would personally take so i don't know about you guys but again just as a disclaimer so everybody doesn't get the pennies up in a bunch and go pee come on you know it can happen this trade probably got a better chance of happening than me developing wings and flying through my damn wall right here alright so probably not gonna happen i know the yankees and the oreos made deals before but a lot of you know britain and all that was was gonna be a free agent you know you kind of had to move him mullins the auras could be like hey you know offenses is pretty nice you know what i mean our offense is kind of nice out there we could keep them up there again maybe some pitching comes along maybe some decent happens that we're we're a decent team in two to three is it's very possible you know that's very possible so they don't have to deal nobody same thing with the pirates they got some of the best young prospects in all baseball getting very very close to the major leagues you got to knock their socks off to make a deal and i don't blame them if i'm both them i'm sitting back saying yeah we'll try to trade them no doubt give us you know four of your top seven four of your top eight then we'll have a deal right why not cause because if we can get for the one guy maybe three starting pitching prospects that are close to being ready maybe one of those guys is more of a serviceable guy the other two could be legit potential you know one two threes sign me up they're not then we'll talk but until then i'm gonna say he's not available it's the smart move it's a smart move by the baltimore orioles team that hasn't made tons of smart moves in the past it's nice to see him doing something pretty smart but cedric mullins would be the perfect yankee pickup he would be the perfect yankee picker for their offense that's when you're looking that's why martay day by day day by day by day by day starlin marte becomes more attractive because he really fits the yankees well and you know got a lot of fans well he's older well the yankees aren't a team that's looking to win in 2026 they're looking to win in 2022 and that's the mindset you got to have as a yankees gm is that you are looking to win now not four years from now because if that is your mindset and you're playing it wrong and you're not playing to your advantages which is money prospect capital money and prospect capital those are those are the new york yankees two huge huge advantages over the club over other clubs they can sign whoever the hell they want typically not on their house a little different and they got prospect capital where they go make trades when they need to and they got these guys that are closing into the major leagues also to help them so they got the best of both worlds right now they just got to use utilize it that way the new york yankees should be the marvel character the juggernaut that's what they that's what they need to be they need to be the juggernaut they need to just be able to run through walls non-stop break through everything go look we're gonna we're gonna juggling out through everything that's how we that's how we run our business here has it been like that mullins to the yankees is likely not happening whatsoever but boy oh boy cedric mullins would be an amazing pickup for the new york yanks and really would fit them just about better than anybody that's available out there so you guys let me know in the comment section below what do you think about this move do you think there's any possibility at all and if there is would you be willing to give up a dominguez would you be willing to give up you know two or three of your top seven maybe four of your top seven eight nine would you be willing to do that for a guy cedric mullen sending those guys over to who could potentially in the future be a rival baltimore oriole team even though the yankees struggle against bad baltimore real team so i really doesn't matter but guys if you have not subscribed please go ahead and do so for your notifications on so you never miss a ny news video again i am pizza manetti talk to you guys again very very soon thank

Could Peraza Get The Jeter Treatment? @SimonettiSource

Transcript

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for ny news and as you can see it is off it is off so the rehab physical therapy process starts now six plus weeks six weeks or so um yeah a little a little beat up sore hurts um but hey i always like a good challenge so i expect a much better and stronger me over the next six plus weeks positive positive positive positive but anyway guys i want to talk about a conversation i had with an advanced scout who gives me a lot of good information on a lot of yankee prospects he does not work in a yankee organization got connected to him from a lot of other people but but this is his job his job is to know a lot of these guys that could face teams in the future that could come up and do some damage and no he is the the eyes the ears so to say and the guider uh of an organization that's what that role basically is to inform and let teams know whether it's they're playing against them whether it's trade value whether it's a guy that may fit your team down the line this is their job to know these things so i asked a simple question i said going back to 1996 when the new york yankees gave young prospect derek jeter the chance to be a shortstop now times are a little different derek jeter also wasn't in a time where free agency was you know 96 wasn't uh you didn't have four guys out there who you know will command a hundred plus million dollar contract somebody maybe 300 plus guarantee 200 plus on a few of them and be legitimate stars that can immediately jump into a team's shortstop role and become a leader or the star player team middle of the order bet not facing that so what i asked him was is there any chance that young yankee prospect oswal cabra oswal cabrera my goodness oswald perazza oswaldo cabrera just added to the yankee 40 man look out for him he plays shortstop third base second base anyway oswald barraza none of this is scripted always real at ny news guys oswald peraza you guys know i love oswald peraza i am extremely high in this guy and is nice to know that many others are also and not just in the yankees organization one of the reasons why brian cashman really feels like i don't know if i should you know it depends on what i'm what i'm giving up for this guy we don't know if he's involved in the matt olsen talk i would assume he is because from everything i've heard and you guys go back to my to our um to our uh chat we have eli who you guys know does a tremendous job on everything yankees minor league did a great job on the 40 minute ross to break it up news before everybody else and even just conversation that i've had if you're a fan of the channel you'll watch the designated spitters you see the knights at the round table personal videos i make lives i've talked very highly about oswald peraza because what i hear about him is phenomenal it's phenomenal so for the guys who don't know and i'll be shocked if there's yankee fans out there who don't know much about azwa peraza across the board in every ranking system he's either gonna rank two or three he'll either be ahead or behind jason dominguez and of course number one is anthony volpe but oswald perazza is 21 years old six foot about 170 175 last year last year look at these numbers guys 297 average 38 stolen bases 58 rbis 18 home runs ops of 834 on base percentage of 3 56 76 runs scored just an absolutely tremendous year for oswald peraza 26 doubles three uh three triple two triples overall caught stealing 10 times but stole 38 bases again um slugging percentage 477 across the board and as you guys know he went from able to double a where he was terrific to triple a he ended the year in triple a one of the things you guys again have heard me say a lot was really corroborated by the scout that i sent these questions to my question simply was this would the yankees not will they not do you think could the yankees give oswald peraza the derek sanderson jeter treatments would he put him out there and just surround him by some really good guys his response to me was oswald peraza could start a shortstop for any club in major league baseball right now he wouldn't need no more conditioning none of that again he could start right now with any club now he did say this if that were the case he would ensure that the second baseman is dj lemayo and not glaber torres the reason being you want to put veteran more veteran guys around that can really handle that position around him if you could kind of block him in with a giovanni or shella who handles this position very well and also did a good job of short stop peralta short and then at second base dj lemay got a lot of great voices around a kid who most people will tell you if they don't feel his bat is totally there yet the glove is he's smooth he's slick these are the words that i've said before and the words that he also stated to me oswald is a very good defensive shortstop and the one thing he mentioned is what a lot of the other shortstops that are available what all the money is available that they're not gonna necessarily give you is legitimate speed legitimate guide i could do 20 plus stolen bases easy now we know trevor story out of all the guys available is fast he's very athletic he compared him more to a story than anybody else available he said the one thing he thinks that he will become better than story if he ever became better than story is that he will make more contact than trevor story he's not a guy that needs to swing for homers to drive the ball out that's a gift he has he can drive the ball the right center field that a lot of people see as doubles he takes them over the fence so i asked that question for a simple reason with all the information i've been given i do not see the yankees dropping a major contract unfortunately guys this is no longer the new york yankees that we once truly loved and we still love of course but it's ran a little differently a lot differently if you really want to go into but i'm just specifically speaking when all these guys are available back in the day the yankees would have got them they might have got two of them they might have got two of them in all reality because they got a they could they could literally do second third or short and fill two positions if they really wanted to they could have done that with the mindset right now that we could potentially see correa go elsewhere and sager go elsewhere seeger leaving simeon and story as the potentially other big names that the yankees can go out there and get right i think story's a terrific fit if you go out there and add more pitching wise trades get a good catcher and all that but if the yankees were to say you know what we do have money we could spend on the the the yearly basis we don't want to get tied into it to an eight six seven eight nine ten d year deal we want to save that for aaron judge but we will do you know four five year deals maybe guys you know not at 30 plus million a year none of that stuff maybe we get some 22 23 24 25s in there the yankees go out there and let's say you know we think robbie ray and pitching is going to be key we feel like if we added um a marte in center field or if we make a trade of some sort uh with merrifield i don't know just to throw a name out there somebody that hits a little bit of contact moves guys over drives at the top of that top of that order a little bit gets on base more can run a little bit again starlin marte um if we did something like that maybe just maybe if we trade for matt olsen maybe just maybe we can get a guy also when i give it up haraz and then we can leave a peraza at short let him develop between two guys like a urshella maybe a kyle seeger they end up going out and get potentially i don't know i'm just throwing stuff out there and the dj lemayo maybe it's instead of trading a peraza to oakland they trade a glaber torres maybe they also get a pitcher in that deal so the main thing that i also asked was well what is the mindset of oswald peraz and he said flat out oswald peraz could come up to the major leagues and he'll do his thing he's just that type of guy from what he saw he just he's a professional ball player he doesn't see a guy that tries to be flashy he doesn't see a guy that that show boasts he doesn't see a guy that you know um um you know the saying that he puts his head down and he runs he's a gamer he goes out there and plays baseball so again i am not advocating i am not pushing for the new york yankees to just say start peraza what i'm trying to again come full circle here because the yankees made some good moves when they released the guys they released recently to add to that 40-minute roster they added really good players i thought stephen ridings would have been gone i thought ron martin mara kisio whatever his name is um who's it excellent i hate when i can't pronounce an italian name if i had it in front of me i could do it but i always forget it they added good guys ever since pierre we already know about oswaldo cabrera who i mentioned earlier in this video but if that's a sign maybe they do start going to the younger guys here maybe the yankees do say you know what we are the yankees yes but maybe we can also be like the tampa bay rays just in the sense that if we have an open position and if we want to if we want to add elsewhere because we can we can throw a peraza out there because we know we're going to add a huge starting pitcher we know we're going to add a big center fielder i don't think yankee fans have an issue with that at all it's just a balancing act the yankees can't sit back there and go we're not going to get these guys because it's too much money well unfortunately we didn't add enough so we'll just start some of our younger guys that ain't going to cut it that's not the strength of what the yankees should be doing the strength of what the new york yankees should be doing is that yes we can do the small deal yes we can make a trade because we got a good farm system and yes when it comes to big bucks we can spend it we got everything we got guys we could call up and play we got guys we can trade for and we have money that is the best you can have as an organization the yankees have it they just got to utilize it the right way the philosophy got to be the right way it's not that you spend 220 million dollars it's how you spend it that's been the issue with his ball club how they have spent their money we can pull players from this roster and go ha that adds up to 80 90 million for what and you could do that easy with the new york yankees roster so again i'm not sitting here saying a yankee shouldn't go get correa they shouldn't go get secret they shouldn't go get stored they shouldn't go get simeon you guys know i think story would be terrific depending on what he is i might try to offer him a big one-year deal but sticking to oswald peraza i confirmed with multiple people i know brian cashman said his glove would play up here right now his bat would the event scout i talked to said he would not see peraza really having an issue because of his intangibles because of what he brings to the table his attributes they're all there he said one it'll take an adjustment but he's made those he's shown him in the past he started off double a very slow he made an adjustment he made an adjustment that's what the best guys do they make adjustments they make adjustments he only had 28 at-bats in aaa 286 one homer but most people would tell you the legitimate competition in the miners is double a when it comes to pure talent there is more pure talent prospects aaa you have a lot of your your journeymen still down there guys that are kind of holding on to a last hope guys that are organizational fillers prospects too but triple double a that's why you see a lot of guys make the jump from double a to the major leagues because of that exactly so everything i hear everything i have been told if the yankees really wanted to go to the route of the derek jeter route with the oswald peraza they can do it they can do it again guys this is pizza manetti for nyy news hope you guys enjoy your sunday since there is no designated spit is today we should be back next week but guys tuesday night i'll give you an update there is going to be a nights at the round table so make sure you check out for that that is live so i'll be answering all your questions having fun with it talking about projected lineups projected moves what we would do how we have the roster set up and how it will look like so with that being said guys make sure you tune that if you have not subscribed please go ahead and subscribe you see it right down there a little flashing light there with the ball saying subscribe subscribe subscribe january is right around the corner so excited for you guys to see what we got in store for you let me know in the comments below what do you think about the yankees went that route but again the only way they could do that in my opinion that i'll be okay with is if they add much more to this ball club than they have right now so let me know in the comments below what you guys think like subscribe share all that fun stuff talk to you guys again soon thank you i really really really wanna

what is going on everybody pizza minetta here for nyy news the yankees make a move today on the coaching staff luis rojas former mets manager will be the new york yankees third base coach i like the move um rojas is actually well respected around the game um the position he was putting with the mets was not a good one you know what i mean and a lot of people feel that um he wasn't ready to be a manager yet or in that situation they had him in it just wasn't the best fit in the world but as a coach all you hear is great praises about him and look you know if he can do anything to maybe balance some of these guys out work a little more in the infield have a little say in what goes on um i like the start of where they're going with the coaches that now everybody knows i'm never going to be happy with aaron boone unless he really changes the way he manages unless he gets a little bit of pride and dignity back in his system and is able to bench guys when they don't run or go over and pull them to the side and grab him and talk to them you know unless that happens i'm not a fan of of of the coaching staff because of boone but they could do some things to add some guys i think luis rojas is a nice start now i was the first person to put the information out there i was told that eric chavez also interviewed i believe there's a very good possibility of be a part of this staff um i my understanding is the interview went very well so let's see what happens there the other news on the day that got a lot of people talking john heyman reported that brian cashman met with the agents of freddie freeman and and freeman and blah blah blah blah blah guys can i just tell you a little spoiler alert real quick if brian cashman didn't meet with freddie freeman and co he's not doing his job he wouldn't be doing his job the yankees have a first baseman now who would be out of position but dj lemayo could play first base they are interested in their plan their plan anthony rizzo matt olsen most people believe one of those three will be the yankee third baseman but why would you not talk to freddie freeman and kind of see how he feels about new york would that be an interest to him what is it going to take why not have those conversations i mean if he doesn't then he's not doing his job as gm you got to have option a b c d and e gotta have those options on the table so i look no more into this than just that he was doing his due diligence and it's the right thing to do it's kind of his job to be fair so i know john heyman is out there you know looking for clicks and all that i mean i guess they do that right the inside is typically dude i just got met with this guy today and whatever um i mean i did it with patrick corbin so i put that information out that he was at the stadium they were meeting they had a meeting set up and um yeah so i guess um i did the same thing too so why should i do that to good old john heyman i love john heyman um but really guys that's it right now you know um all quiet before the storm maybe i think by friday we'll see something done i don't know if it's olson i think the yankees are very very deep in those waters i really believe that um i don't know if it's a possible maybe a trade that we haven't talked about much but um i think that is very very possible we shall see we shall see what happens there but um you know i've also had a lot of people dm me about what i said yesterday in the live and even i made the video about that you know i've been told by four people now that hal steinberg is not gonna go out there and do a 300 million dollar contract with a shortstop and people assume that that means that correa or seeger is not one of the guys said they think seeker could get less than three i don't believe that i think so and the way the market's going so eduardo rodriguez get paid today what is robbie ray gonna get justin verlander might get 20 million a year i don't know how but he might so gotta fix this mic one arm guys it's annoying um but we'll see what happens it could be an interesting week for the yankees you know they got some decisions to make with the with the 40 man and non-tenders coming up it's going to be a very interesting time i really believe that brian cashman is going to have to clear some space um that's only really done through trade unless you just drop these guys which would make no sense at all because randy vasquez is really good as well the cabrera is really good everson pierre's really good steven ridings is good i mean matt sawyer is good there's a lot of guys on that list that are really good ball players that the yankees have to add or lose in a rule 5 draft and you know i i think i think the yankees will make some moves by friday a move or moves i think they're also going to really start you're going to start to see the coaching staff close up too i think they really want to get that out the way i believe the next one could be eric chavez uh we'll see what happens there i know his interview went very well as i reported but um other than that guys that's the only update i have right now unless something else breaks you'll hear from me next time when we got some more information out there if i got information to share with you guys i'll do that until then tell your friends family uh yankee groups facebook twitter youtube uh twitch whatever the hell social media platforms are out there to make sure they subscribe to ny news so you guys get the first and everything that we put out don't want you guys to miss anything so again guys with that being said i am pizza pizzamanetti for the one the only nyy news talk to you guys next time

oh let's do it baby you know come on come on fam fun fact about francis i actually lived in brooklyn until i was about 11. look at that look at that fun fact about francis i like that we should do that every now and then a fun fact what's the fun fact about me there's not much he said he said i'm not a fun guy another fun guy let me tell you something about pete he's he he he's not for the fun and games no he wants to get right down let's get the business that's it yeah that's that's all that's all there is to it if pete was the general manager we probably would have had three or four moves done by now because it's not about the fun and games it's like you know what i mean and on top of that aaron boone wouldn't be here we we all we all know that aaron oh you got me here you guys know that aaron boone wouldn't be here you know the most coveted manager apparently he'd probably he probably he probably would be managing oakland at this point or the message we got washington heights in here hey wash heights i love it i love it i love it i love it let's get into it let's get into it i see some questions on it guys like i said man throw those questions at throw topics whatever you guys want to talk about you know we don't care we don't care we're going to talk about whatever you guys want to talk about so if i miss your question guys throw it back out there so let's see where are we on the first one um i saw one here it is is seeger to the yankee still realistic or likely i say it could be both i think it's very well obviously let's get the first one out the way we're gonna agree with this it's very realistic of course we know that is it likely i kind of think it's up there i think it's up there um yeah i would say i would say seeger is the most likely candidate right now that's where i'm at i agree that's where i'm at and i said that too in my thing yesterday people were going like i don't think people listened they did my video yesterday you gave up so much information that it's like people went they ran they're running with like one thing so it's like yeah because i even saw a comment the guy was like um you're not a yankee fan if you want story and i was like i never said that i never see you you did you didn't say anything about wanting so you said that story is still a very real possibility which he 100 is yeah so like i said i've heard from three people so we'll see and i actually i actually sent some um some messages today so i hope they get something back but we'll see if that's you know if that happens and we'll we'll get to all that we'll get to other but uh speaking of seeger what's not to like you know what i mean there there is like i said there's pros and cons with everybody we know that you know um there's pros and cons with everybody we know what he does good we know what he does not so good we know he's not the greatest defensive shortstop we know if that middle of the infield is going to be him in glaber we don't know if it's him and dj like a lot more there's a rumor also that seeger can move to third base pretty quickly um the lefty bat is a plus we know that he makes contact that's a plus yep so there's a lot of pluses there for cory seeger that i like he's gonna cost money potentially over three maybe a little under three we'll see but um yeah i think like you francis i wouldn't be shocked one bit if the yankees signed corey seeger i put a i put it into our chat the other day uh just uh the guys we were talking i think joe or rb asked like where do you guys see all the shortstop signings so i i did a list i'm not gonna reveal my list right now because we you know i'm not trying to give everything out in the first five minutes here right yep but with seeger i still feel uh his most likely landing spot is the new york yankees for much of the things that you named already the lefty bat um but let me just to be to be different to add on to it right corey seeger off the field he just fits the yankee profile right we know that he does um i put out i put out a tweet thread uh maybe yesterday or the day before yesterday and it was speaking mainly about like correa versus seeger but not in terms of skill was terms like off the field profile like fitting the yankees and uh secret seeker just fits that profile if you look at him you look at the way he approaches his his work day in day out he looks like a yankee guy like that's you know i mean like he doesn't he's not ruffling very many feathers he's not you know giving you fodder and post-game interviews or whatever says all the right things and the whole thing about him not being uh you know good defensively has been overblown yeah at this point i even said that he's he's an average defender he's not some guy he's going to bobble routine plays he makes the average listen guys and you guys may not like this comparison or agree with it especially with everything that's out right there right now but in terms of like his glove at shortstop he's very reminiscent of a derek jeter maybe he's gonna say the same thing maybe better all right if we're calling a spade a spade he's gonna make all the average plays um he's gonna cover a decent ground uh there um he's not gonna make that many above average plays there but he's gonna make he's gonna make the average he's gonna make the house he's supposed to and that in it in and of itself is a huge upgrade from what we started at shortstop last night i was just gonna say that either way it's an upgrade at shortstop on both sides of the ball both sides of the ball now what um what i feel like is happening is that you have like you have different camps in in yankee land right now for the fans right and there's the people who feel like if i want correa to sign with the yankees i need to like bash seeger and bash all the other candidates yeah yeah that's not that's not true like i'm i'm a hunt and like i said we'll get to that later i don't want to even go into him now because i know that's going to be a good hot topic but i will say this my personal choice my number one choice would be carlos correa yeah but i'm not going to sit here and tell you that corey seeger is not a good enough option at shortstop because that's a lie francis i'll get this off the bat right now because i think we agree with this this crop of shortstops is so damn good would you really be mad about any of them how could you miss that's so here's what i'm saying we know i would always right seeger story correa simeon people [ __ ] on simi and how samia had a great you know arguments with me today so i'll tell you guys this today arby goes to me and goes he said in our chat he goes who'd you guys say out of all the players available who is the the what was some like who is going to be the most productive going forward and i said to be fair to be real with you if this guy continues who he is over the next three year span minimum simian's the best right now if you're going off for the most if you're going off of our most recent recent season now like i said i said if i'm looking at projection of potential correa yeah i'd say carlos correa has the overall ability to be better than everybody but for the long can't at all this guy no damn good simeon see i think with i think with simeon people are are underselling it a little bit i'm gonna tell you guys right now i don't i don't talk to very many people like i literally just because i joined ny news like by luck of the draw because i'm associating with pete and different guys i began talking to guys like hulk and all these other people but before they i never had a relationship with them but aside from what they're saying about seeger and correa simeon's market if you just put his name into twitter and like read simeon's market is very robust i would hazard to say i would hazard to say it might be even more robust than segre and korea because more teams feel like they can land similarly correct correct these same things going to happen with story the same thing is going to happen with story you know what you're not hearing much about him now but his market is going to pick up bro based on my video and guys i'm sorry for getting ahead because i know you guys are probably asking a lot of this stuff so we'll continue on but let me just say this real quick too the funny thing about story is i feel like yankee fans would be disappointed if they got him a lot of the yankee fans on twitter you see it like even in my comment section on my video yesterday i'm like guys all i'm doing is reporting what i'm told i've done that since i've started on youtube and i'll continue doing it yeah i'm not saying that this is the greatest option i'm saying what i'm hearing and a lot of yankee i don't want him are you mad you wouldn't want trevor story on your ball club why no they're gonna say they're gonna say oh well you know he he's a he's a big strikeout guy and we already have a lot of that in our lineup and i get it that's nice that's that's good uh it's good commentary that you stole from the mlb network from jeff fason and everybody else who says it but the fact of the matter is and i want to shout out reuben because he sent this super chat speaking about story awesome and guys i'm sorry to cut you off i just want to say this real quick guys we do have to get the super chats before anybody else because they go away so just an fyi if somebody sends a super chat we gotta get to it immediately because it will go away over time so if we don't answer your question resend it because we do got to go on with the chat there's a lot of people in here exactly no so what what reuben rubin said was the one thing i like about story is that he steals bases at a high clip that's something that when we're speaking about the other crop of guys out there story is in the elite end of that his speed is elite his base running is elite he steals bases another thing that's being i guess overlooked or undersold story is probably the second best defensive shortstop out of the crop 100 and no question no and it's arguable and it's arguable some people might not like this but it's arguable that he's the first best and i'll tell you why carlos correa did just come off winning a platinum glove this year you cannot take anything away from that but story has been elite defensively at shortstop since go since the moment he said go to now it's been elite not to say that carlos hasn't been as good but for carlos it's been a build up to now he's literally a platinum glove shortstop trevor story has like been so you know what i mean like it's like let's let's give let's give the credit where his dude trevor story he's not a pushover he's not a slouch he wouldn't be he he like i i the fact that trevor story could be a plan b just goes to tell you how deep this free agent is oh he could be a plan c yeah honestly he might be he could be he could very well he he honestly might be a plan c or d you never know exactly which is which was the other super chat that we got from anthony i think he said hey guys if that rumor is true of how not wanting to spend 300 million for either correa or seeger do they pivot and go to sign story well just to be fair so let me just jump on that real quick as i put that information out there my understanding of it was that it wasn't specifically story but that's the name that one person said keep an eye on um so it wasn't like three of them didn't say trevor store is the guy going after one of them told me story should be a guy we look at because the yankees had interest in them and a lot of the idea about them souring on him they don't believe is necessarily true because where the money would be the difference because i've said this before and you know i tell you what like if you look at that and again thank you um thank you anthony for the super chat um you look at a guy like trevor store and if the yankees say i mean francis you may notice better than i do what's his projection money wise under 200 million i'm pretty sure unless somebody blows it out the water trevor's story yeah yeah trevor's story is not projected to get more than 230 million which like 230 240 so on the high end and this is the high end that i've seen for projections the high end is 240. on the low end there's some people out there that think he signs a deal of like 185 million and i mean look if you can save 100 million dollars and again we're not making the money i think the yankees should spend all they want i think house should go up to 270 280 290 even it doesn't matter to me but at the end of the day if you add if you save money there and you put it to a robbie right you put it to a starlin marte can you imagine adding all those guys so that would be absolutely huge uh let me look for the next question on here do you see a shortstop coming off the market before december 1st that's from chris perez jr um i will say i'm gonna go yeah i'm gonna go with yeah okay i'm gonna say there's at least one big signing before the shutdown yeah i will say i will say i will say i am not 100 sure that it's a short stop um i think there's a big signing i think but i do i will say that i will say that there that a big deal could happen before december 1st i put i would put it at 75 chance one of the bigger free agents because remember there's not it's not just you know what we're paying attention to in the short stop class you have starling marty at center field you have robbie ray at starting pitcher you have justin verlander at starting pitcher you have max scherzer at starting pitcher you have freddy freeman who reportedly turned down an offer from the braves this week right they might counter with the right they might counter with the right number he might sign that deal that's a big signing like so i would say we're about a 75 chance that one of these big names signs before december 1st because some of these guys like i said a couple episodes ago they're going to want to know where the hell they're going in february and some some of these guys aren't going to want to wait like if i'm justin verlander oh yeah i'd want to know i could see i'm gonna and this may be a hot take this might not be a hot take to some of you but i can see verlander signing wherever he's gonna sign this week yeah it makes sense he has until what is it thursday or wednesday to accept or decline the qualifying offer yeah if he if he if he declines that qualifying offer at 18 million he's got to know that there's a robust market out there where he's going to get a couple years and the money that he wants yeah if the market is not what people are saying it is because i know a lot of people are out there reporting stuff but i haven't seen it like corroborated by some of the insiders right so i don't know i'm not going to sit here and pretend that i know what verlander's market is i've put out my own guesses but if the market is not what some of you guys are saying it is that 40 50 million dollars people want to offer him then i could see him accepting the qo this week yeah like verlander's he's definitely a case um noah syndergaard is another guy who could accept the qualifying offer kindergarten makes a ton of sense because i don't think anybody's going to blow him out the water and if you think about it with a guy like him he could be the best free agent starter next year exactly i guess that one year my i was i was uh i was super shocked that the mets even went qualifying offer with syndergaard just because like you run the risk of paying 20 million dollars to a guy who pitched like what was it like two innings or something last year like yeah that's really it's like it's it's it's it's nice it's a nice little payday it's a nice little payday for somebody who hasn't you know what i mean i'm not i'm not criticizing because the yankees have done the same if not worse in certain cases but you remember you gave him the qo and you gave conforto did they give comfort of the qo as well i believe so and they gave stroh the truth so it's like it's like wow like okay if you had to choose right who i'm who i'd rather like give that eighteen point four to strowman would be my god why because he he pitched for you no pitch right you know and he's pro and he's probably going to pitch again yeah now with cinder guard yes there would be teams out there willing to take the risk you always have to watch out for teams like the dodgers the padres always seem like they don't care what's going on they'll sign you but like i feel like the mets if they didn't give him the qo they could have found a way to like pick him back up in free agency so that was shocking but like i said he might just accept that qo this week yeah why not if i was him i would have been accepted i agree last week l.i yankee king in the house thank you for the super chat we greatly appreciate a fam yankees don't need to sign up big time sure stuff they have peraza and the miners yankee fans don't want to hear this but it's time to give the prospects a chance and spending money doesn't work for yankees so two things on that one i'll i think i can wrap this one up to be fair one starting some of the prospects i do agree with now who and what we can debate on there spending money doesn't work i think is incorrect we've seen the yankees do it in the right way and we've seen where it works for the yankees we've seen 09 but look who they got they got the ace they needed they got what they needed in 09 they got two starting pitchers who strike guys out one they considered more of an ace than the other one aj burnett killed the yankees for years and he struck guys out he was a strikeout pitcher we know that cece sabathy was the ace and the horse the yankees finally needed they got him they also got the best first baseman arguably in baseball at the time and they also traded for people always forget this nick swisher was supposed to be our first baseman and he had a great year in right field became the right fielder so there was a lot of smart things done so the yankees that year think about it they traded some prospects and they spent money that's what they have to do but see look when li and i love you bro but when you say things like spending money doesn't work for the yankees but that's their advantage and that's the problem that's why i get so frustrated that's why francis gets frustrated we talked about this all year long deadline and all that stuff the yankees have the advantage of having a good farm system and having money things teams like the dodgers and only a few clubs can really say the red sox the mets well the metsy whatever but they can do these things the yankees can do that it's the way you go about doing it is is the real problem here peraza look cashman said he could start it short now defensively defensively he could hit yeah trust me he can hit at that level all last year everybody told me they said pete this kid is ready now he could come up right now that's why i said at the end of the year i thought he should have been called up because everybody you hear from says this kick a hit right now at this level and be very good at this level so debating that or not it really doesn't matter but the yankees should spend money they should call guys up when they have to they should run it like the rays run it but with the added part that they can spend hundreds of million dollars in contracts so i'm really happy that you bring up the race because my response to li yankee king and not just li cause there's a couple of people that feel like this i saw somebody respond to a joe's tweet this week saying uh why do the yankees have to spend so many hundreds of millions of dollars to contend when you have teams like tampa bay who contend at like 60 million and i responded um saying it's very simple franchises organizations are built to survive in their environments right tampa bay has to survive at 60 million in payroll 70 million 50 million in payroll because they are bred to do so they were not bred to spend that kind of money they don't have that financial wherewithal that the yankees do that the dodgers do so they are out they obviously had to pivot to something different they had to find a way to compete so what did they do they went and got some people who thought outside of the box smart guys they got some nerves they got people who could get more out of less and that's how they put their team together they became a scrappy organization who gets more out of uh out of less and then when a player is reaching that moment where they get expensive even in arbitration they ship them out for the next young guy who's going to come up and they can get more out of for less facts the yankees are not bred to do that so as much as i i was on the bandwagon this year saying like we got to call up these kids or whatever i was saying that because in the moment we didn't have another choice we did not have another option you can't like in the middle of the year a big free agent signing doesn't normally happen so you got to go with what you got at the time and we had guys who were in our farm system doing well that i thought deserved a shot but in the off season we shouldn't be approaching the offseason the way tampa bay approaches and off seas of course not because we are bred to survive in a different arena our environment is the environment of the los angeles dodgers it's the environment of the padres right now it's the environment of the right that the that the red sox are in that the mets want to be in i mean they say they're in but we have to see right that environment where it's like this is this is the you know this is the casino this is where you go into that secret room in the casino and it's like yo this is the high stakes table that's where the yankees are bred to play so we are at our best when we spend the money i know people say ah but 300 million like why do we have to do because that's how we are bred to survive yep that's how we are bred to survive we i mean if the if the yankees are going to change that i mean this this is not changing change the name too then if you're if you're not if you're not going to be the yankees then don't don't fake to be the yankees yeah be something like i don't know i don't know why i can't i can't understand why fans would want the yankees to be anything other than financial giants and in new york city they make more money than any other franchise why should they be frugal and i underst i do understand where a fan could come out and go a pete you know they do have floriel and they do have peraza i mean that that gives you two guys they could put in there right yeah potentially they could but i think i think even me being arguably one of the biggest supporters of esteville all year i'd rather have starla marten center field if you could do that 100 i mean that's my thing but that's the power and the muscle of the yankees and that's and that's where the yankees have to flex their power like see the thing about prospects guys we said this time and time again prospects are nice right prospects are nice to hold them you want to hug them you want to give them a little a little they smell you know a little noogie they they smell good you want a little kiss on their forehead oh my little chase but here's the thing but here's the thing when you're the new york yankees right you do not have to necessarily bank on the hopes that dominguez comes up and does everything he's hyped to do when you have the money to buy someone who is already doing that right now do you understand so if the right opportunity presents itself it's good to have prospect i'm not saying i'm not saying that we don't need prospect because there was a time where our farm system was bereft of any prospects that people wanted and we were very unsuccessful because of that the reason that the yankees are in a very unique position this offseason to take the next step and further is because we invested in the farm system the way we did and we have a decent farm system and money the ideal situation is to have both why do i say that because the money can get you a shortstop a center fielder maybe a starting pitcher the prospects can get you your first baseman some relief arms and maybe a catcher you imagine making all of those changes in the same off-season and only three of the new players costed money because you got the other three with prospects that's right that's that's what prospects can do for you yep right but we can't we can't hug we can't hug on to them and tell them on our arm when they're in playing low a no come on guys like and that's a lot of the topic that we've had so i'm getting to our good friend ra ryan sends into super chat to be fair story has been has been the most durable of the other two shortstops in my opinion i'd be happy with a story and olson combination who the hell wouldn't who the hell wouldn't look the good thing about that you got some balance there too right you got a guy who makes a lot of contact cut his strikeouts down a ton in olson and then he got trevor story who i mean like you said defensively he's excellent he's durable he's been on the field he's a leader we know that we know he has that mentality about himself he's fast he steals bases we need that and yeah he's gonna okay fair he's gonna strike out i get it i get it he's going to strike out understandable everybody else our other stars judge and and stan yeah and look i'm not making excuses for guys striking out because yeah i've said it multiple times we need more contact matt olson does that matt olson does that so he he starling starling starling martinez lamarte does that and i saw marty risa that man is jacked no this guy he's a he's a physical specimen i would never have taken that picture that l'oreal body yeah i he was in a picture with gary sanchez i was like i would never have to i would never have taken that picture if i was gay gary should have been like bro when you post that just crop it bro let me see but let me see you before let's gary sanchez gary sanchez look look like a cab driver standing next to this man like what are you this man has biceps out to hear the shoulders i mean he looks like a man athlete i was just like yo put the pinstripes on homie right now people want to tell me that this guy's 32. do you know at the age of 32 he is way more in shape and athletic than glebe torres 24 year old ass like what are we talking about labor tours and those new pictures look like he's getting a little chunk on him he i hope that he has a little chunk on him there i think i think he should be going back he should be going the opposite way but i don't we'll see reuben comes through again with the super chat ruben says one starling martay two trevor story three judge equals havoc on the bases and many many many runs bro i would fall out flat on my face if that's what the yankees ever ran out there yeah no that would be great now let me better watch this starlin martay trevor story judge olson stanton gallow stalin's whoever the hell else is out there cause i can't say gary i ain't even saying i knew starlings was coming but can you think about that though martay story judge olson stanton stop it and and a healthy dj lament are we allowed to win that much that is winning listen man i want to tell you guys look it's not uh it's not it's not it's not out of the realm of possibility that we don't end up with correa or seeger like and it's not it's not just it could it could it could be you know that you know what pete reported in the video from yesterday is 100 accurate and hal says look i already got stanton on a contract that's 300 that i'm paying off we just signed cole on a contract that's 300 that i'm paying off i gotta resign judge i got a resigned judge i want financial flexibility in case an opportunity presents itself in the future i just don't want to do this and maybe and maybe that's what they say and maybe they don't go to one of those guys story would be a phenomenal fallback option francis simeon you know that bowdoin projects simeon to only get a five-year deal worth hundred and forty eight million do you have that that's stupid i mean if you can guarantee me and i i would i would probably bet more it's because of age that he has three a minimum of three good years if you simeon yeah simeon i would i would i would bet with you i would bet the same way if somebody tells me that i'd be like all right so he's a he literally is 1a if that's his salary there's nobody better no yeah it's listen if because here's the thing if we are of if we are subscribing to the belief that anthony volpe is as box office are they as they are telling us that he is he is only about another year two years away maybe maybe maybe that would mean that we could afford to sign someone who is going to be here for the next couple of years and then slide over or transition when volpe comes up right if that is the case now for me personally francis the ideal situation for that is to sign seeger why because many people say that he's going to do better at third base anyway right his range is limited as a short stop he doesn't really whatever but at third base he could probably be really successful facts well you know what him at third volpe at short i think i like my chances i think i love i think i love my channel but that's the thing and that's what i was saying before like when you said about who you know whoever they sign this is the best offseason to get away with being like we didn't want to spend three you don't even got to say it no the yankees came out and were like guys you know we looked at everything we looked at all the guys available we truly feel story was the best option we truly feel that simeon was the best option you could make that case without anybody get it mad i know i think i'll tell you right now if cashman comes out and says that people can't get upset like for for simeon especially with simeon you can't get do you know the simeon was the heart and soul of the toronto team this year yeah simeon was the heart and soul he was just going into the room that's it one one of the best offenses in baseball yeah i think vladimir i think vlad vlady jr will tell you himself that if simeon is not on that team he doesn't have the year that he had this year no probably not i'm going to tell you i'm going to tell you right now a veteran like simeon is exactly what you want in a lineup that's young like the blue jays if i'm the blue jays i would commit all types of sin to make sure i got simeon back because because without simeon in that lineup next year they're gonna look very different people say oh it's just one guy it's not gonna be trust the difference trust me when i say it if the toronto blue jays run out the same lineup sans simeon you're going to see a different offense next year i'm not saying that kevin bisio doesn't take the next step i'm not saying that beau buchet doesn't get even better that vladi doesn't get even better that you know uh george springer you know with the injuries and everything you know tay oscar's a guy who's good i guess they're still there they still there they have they got a lot of thumb they got a lot of power they got a lot of contact in that lineup they got a lot of damage that can be done but simeon was the catalyst there case in point look at the yankee offense in those two years when dj mayhew was dj la mayhew and look at the yankee offense last year when dj lemay he was not dj lamey right it was a huge difference it was a stark difference and and we we chalked it up to a lot of different things we said there's not enough lefties there's not enough whatever let me tell you something two years ago we still ain't have enough lefties but that that offense was churning why because we had a catalyst at the top of that thing making it go making it go this guy was getting hits and almost it looks like every other bat every other day he had a multi-hit game he was if he came up with runners on base it's just like okay add to the score because he's about to when he wasn't doing that you saw the difference so i feel like simeon's a guy that if you're toronto it's like dude you really don't want to lose this guy but you're going to have a lot of competition to sign him a lot well i'm surprised it took this long even though taco nacho was sending it multiple times so taco nacho thank you for following the rules that we were saying he says pete how serious is the whole olsen thing and do you think we can get a trade done this week remember paxton was traded this week a couple of years ago uh how serious is it i think it's extremely serious i think the yankees recognize that olsen is available and i think he also recognized that they can get them i think i think all that is obvious now the question comes to right now how many you know what are the offers looking like right now because i've seen people come out and go well um what's basically happening is that uh there's not enough interest in olson that's stupid that's i'll tell you right now that is stupid if you believe that there's not enough interest in matt olsen i got a bridge to sell you now is it true that it could be possible that they're not getting the offers they expect that is very possible that is very very possible we know the brewers will be involved we know boston's involved we know the yankees are involved we know to be many of the mariners could also be in there could be a lot of teams out there that could be really interested in matt olsen so just saying that they should look as they should as they should be yankees interest yes it is very serious i think everybody knows that by now i think that could very very much happen we don't know what it would look like i'd be i wouldn't be shocked one bit if it happened any time soon now to answer your question could it happen by friday it actually could it actually could and that's not me just saying it because there's actually some evidence that could back that up a little bit when it comes to rosters and you know putting some non-tenders and things like that you got to get some of these guys on the roster you got to move some of these other guys so very very interesting uh when it comes to matt olsen i wanna just i think pete said everything there when it comes to matt also i just want to piggyback off that and say yes 100 the interest is a thousand percent real in matt olsen because he fits so many different ways one one he doesn't cost anything right as much as people are predicting the yankees to go blow through the threshold and everything i also agree that they will blow through the threshold but the yankees are still hal's yankees and house yankees love to get a steal whenever they can matt olson matt olson is the prototypical steal this guy is arguably one of the best first baseman in the game he's a left-handed bat i mean he checks off so many boxes that the yankees don't have right now that is just like it makes all the sense in the world so of course of course they're in on it i mean i and i don't think uh cashman did anything to dispel that or anything i mean obviously some of the interviews that came out he's not going to show his hand guys he's he yeah i mean that would be stupid i just got to tell my yankee fan something real quick for some of you who are like well pete that could happen because cashman said this guy stop it yeah i mean i don't i don't even you know when you when somebody says somebody to me i just go i just say in my head yeah you haven't watched for long it's impossible that you've watched for long do you know many times if cashman has said what he truly believes how different these rosters would be yeah bubba crosby would have been on center field we never would have got johnny damon and that's just one there there's tons of options tons of times that cashman has went out and said something again the deadline we will go over if we have to then he comes out well we wanted to stay under and uh okay we we know that you're not giving your hand up makes sense you know so i i think that could be also a problem for oakland they kind of gave their hand up already they showed they showed so teams like the yankees are going to proceed with caution why because they're like look the one thing i don't want to do is bid against myself now i'm not saying i'm not saying please pay attention i'm not saying the yankees are the only ones in on matt olsen because i think that that would be a bit of an ignorant take matt olson is one of the best first basemen in baseball he costs nothing and he has two years of control left there are definitely a lot of suitors interested in matt olsen right yeah what i'm saying is the yankees don't want to bid against themselves if they already submitted a package offer right they don't know whether or not somebody beat their offer but chances are no one has beaten their offer yet right so they don't want to bid against themselves meaning oh we sent an offer we haven't gotten anything yet let's send an even better offer and wait wait time out you don't even yeah let's hold on a second we don't even know we know that other teams are involved all right let's let's not you know be dumb other teams are involved but we don't know to what extent because while he makes sense for other teams the other teams also have a lot of ways that they can pivot a lot of options that they're looking to otherwise but when it comes to the yankees of matt olsen he's such a fit that cashman really has to go in for that in a way that other teams might not have to so him knowing that it would be dumb to say i'm just gonna like keep adding to our package offering you'll sit back at that point just let let it play out because what they're going to do is they're they take the yankees offer they wait to get a better offer and then they circle back to the yankees correct to get the offer that they wanted from the yankees in the first place correct but what what happens if they don't get a better offer than the yankees first offer well then cashman wins and he ends up getting him for lower than what they wanted to sell him for because they didn't get a better offer this is how the off season works guys it's a give it's give and take there's a lot of you know pull but it's like no gm who's worth it who's worth his weight is going to freaking say that to an interviewer in freaking november you know what i'm saying guys not like he has to come out there and say gary sanchez could very well be our starting catcher in 2022. even if he already told his team that gary sanchez is gone he can't say that no because it hurts his value that's stupid the same thing with hicks people got himself oh i can't believe he said that hicks may very well be yeah guys he said two conflicting things in the same sentence he said heron hicks may very well be our starting center fielder we need to upgrade center field you're right he said in the same sentence and people were like no he said hicks is the son he lo if you read both listen to what he said he did he was not going to do what he's doing he never does anything he never does cashman never tells anybody what he's doing i saw somebody say well he's he's talked about carlos correa so much you know he's going to get him because you have to you have to what if anything if anything the talk about carlos correa would lead me to believe they're not going to sign right exactly no i mean cashman well that that's kind of how it is to me that's the talk about carlos correa if anything is to build leverage in the seeger negotiations they're going to end up trading for alberto monday any second and then we're gonna go what the hell happened and that's it that's what's gonna end up happening if they trade for young as alberto monteci i'm gonna be at yankee stadium changing the lock so that he can't get in no offense no offense no offense but you don't you you're not supposed to be over here right now i know you might you think you're not that guy but bro you don't belong here what are you you're not that guy turn around back to kansas city tell the pilot to turn around you're looking to go st louis is that way exactly exactly like oh you oh you're looking for the mets oh okay yeah no no they that's in queens popularity you're in the wrong spot and i'm not just don't worry about it yeah we we send you an uber to queens that's junky stadium hey jenkins you thought city no no yeah city you looking for uncle stevie the team that doesn't have a manager coach that's what yeah that's in queensland right now that's crazy man so tyler tyler comes out with the super chat these are fun we got two super chats in a row that are fun that's really asking us if we would do something where if we think something's going to happen the first one is from tyler is a good one everybody buckle up for this one okay brian reynolds and jacob stallings for j.j domingue oswald peraza luis medina yoendri gomez and randy vasquez that's a big haul that's a really big hole but i want to give tyler a shout out on one thing tyler thank you for being realistic bro thank you for being realistic i'm gonna say you know how many people have messed me say peter what do you think about clint frazier aaron hicks and two other fosters guys you met like come on like stop you guys it gets me mad because i'm like do you guys know two things real quickly about brian reynolds and jacob sawlings brian reynolds is one of the best young players in baseball and he's controllable for years to come jacob sollins is arguably the best defensive catcher in baseball and he handles pitchers extremely well that's valuable guys that's valuable that's going to cost the yankees a lot of shkarol and not just money money and prospects also do i do that trade specifically i'll tell you what tyler man you have my interest i'd sit down and look it over i'd really think about it i'd really think about it i pencil out some lineups i like to know what else we're doing because now if somebody tells me this well we got brian reynolds coming we got jacob stalin we got centerfield and that covered we're also signing trevor story and robbie right i'm doing that deal i don't give a poo i don't give a poo i don't care about jason dominguez and i love him he's he's very very raw people people get very confused about that let him let him develop um oswald peraza i love him i love this dude i love oswald peraza i travel to see this guy this year okay next year i'll be doing f of opie i travel to see him i love all i would have i would not be mad if the yankee said we added all these other guys and oswald perez is going to be our starting shortstop you would see me only be like yeah maybe we could've got more but i'm okay with that i'm okay with that ballsy move that's a ballsy move i'm okay with but francis if a gm approaches me ben charrington approaches me and says hey here's what we're looking at this this is what we would do we'd actually do this as long as i know we added these other pieces whether it's a shortstop along with us one starting pitcher even bro i'm doing that i'm doing that all day now if that was our off season that's a i don't know i that that i would still have to seriously consider but i i don't know if i would be as jumping up and down but if you give me a starting pitcher you give me the short stop you give me that you you looking at a team aaron boone may not be able to mess up yeah listen i'll tell you like this uh one do i do the deal i'm gonna say yes without anything without knowing anything it's a lot it's a lot the prospect capital that we're giving up is a lot but i'm gonna say i'm gonna say yes and here's why is that without knowing anything what do you mean like without knowing whether i'm signing yeah yeah like an example you would want to know the other moves you're making also beforehand or have an idea exactly so that yeah so that's where i'm going me too here's here's where he's like i do this deal here's the caveat though like i do this deal knowing okay one this probably precludes me from trading for matt olsen because now to get olsen the only things left that i have is volpe and i i have to absolutely start any conversation about olson with volpe and if i trade volpe peraza and dominguez in the same offseason i'm gutting the farm system did he he mentioned louise hill too right no or medina no luis medina medina so okay so so he so medina's gone whoa but we'll see yeah so i i actually i actually agree i think if if medina figures out his control like his stuff is even better but now i know if i make this deal i have brian reynolds and i have jacob stallings right center field i have an all-star center fielder great freaking hitter pure hitter i have one of the best defensive gloves behind the plate who is literally about to take my rotation to the next level it's not it's not even funny it's not even funny how good that rotation is about to be because of this cat but i do know that chances are i'm not in the market for olsen anymore because that would mean now like uh medina's gone peraza is gone dominguez is gone for olsen now they want volpe and heel to start the conversation if i like i said if i do that if i do that i'm i'm gutting the farm system i don't know what i'm going to get i don't know what i'm going to have what if i need to make a trade in the middle of the year i don't have any flexibility now i don't have any big chips because i got i shot all my bullets in the winter that's fine that's fine because i'll just sign rizzo i'll sign rizzo yeah it's true i'll bring rizzo back on on a deal that's you know not you know long-term and nothing too too expensive and to me rizzo as a fallback option from matt olsen is a phenomenal option of course so i signed rizzo um i don't sign i don't sign one of the big short stops i don't sign correa and i don't sign corey seeger but i go even harder for trevor story or simeon right right because of the kind of team that i'm putting together now and what i do try to do is find a deal for gleber torres that gets me back some prospect capital so that i could replenish a little bit of what i just lost in the deal to pittsburgh and you could put dj at his best position and i put dj back at his best position and geo and george stays for another year maybe okay with that two maybe two but eventually maybe maybe sign donovan solano but eventually yeah exactly the bench exactly so eventually because of the moves i made this winter now geo in the back of my head has an official expiration date because i like i know where i'm going and he's not going to be a part of it but he's going to be here for now and he might he might get a he might get a ring in one of these next two years because of the team we have right now so i'm going to do right by him before moving on from him yeah but yeah i i definitely do that deal if i can follow it up with the moves that i just said yeah no definitely i agree and then johnny it's like you said bro my bad because it's like you it's like you said to be to be the yankees gm this offseason like yes it's true it's a lot of pressure or whatever but it's like there's so many ways that you could go but how do you lose that's my thing that's what i've been saying the whole like how do you lose in this offseason so johnny i'm gonna get to your question now that we'll answer uh some other ones there johnny says do you think we land olson i'll start off johnny i'm gonna say yes let me tell you why i'm gonna say yes and i'm a pretty confident yes here would it shock me if they don't know do i have anybody telling me right now they're gonna sign olsen no i don't let me tell you why i believe they will brian castron makes trades with few teams oakland is one of them they've done it before he's comfortable with being they they have a good relationship very much i could see the yankees landon olson two you got the prospects to do it that's not the problem three it's an area of need and it automatically makes your infield better makes your team better and let's also not forget he's one of the best players in the game so yes i think as of right now where i stand i will i would be on the side of a yes i think the yankees if olson is traded i'll say this i think he is a yankee yeah i'm gonna agree i'm going to agree with you there pete shout out to killer joe too for getting on that one first that's a fact that's a fact um i will uh yeah 100 agree with you there pete i think uh olsen is is uh is gonna the awesome deal is gonna happen i think it's gonna be done for all the reasons that we've been saying already it makes too much sense um and it's official he's there to be had i don't know how you miss out on a deal like this like when it's like come on man i'm not going to cost you any money it's like whatever they just just go get the guy um and and it covers you if you say you don't want if you make a deal like olsen there's a caveat to it where that kind of covers you now if you don't end up with correa or seeger because another thing as a result that you could say is look now we have this young first baseman superstar we have judge who we're extending we had this like olson's not here for two years we want to resign we want to extend him too so that's why we didn't go and grab a 300 million dollar shorts like not saying that that's what they do but now you can you can use that lip service we're doing here that's why that's why i love doing this live is we're just going with the flow we're going what you guys are telling us and we're building the scenario around as chris colon says i say france's footage yankees new gm right there chris listen man i wish i wish we could put a team together yeah it's great get the ny news team yo we would be out there talking about this all the time and and that's why i think like even when the season ended we had that conversation we're like well this offseason is the most important i've been saying that for a minute now because 100 you you don't it's it's you just don't lose in this offseason there's so many trades to make you could go 12 different routes you can have seven different game plans and end up with a way better team than how you started in 2021 i mean literally like it's it's not even close how easy it is to do that and and that is the reason why i'm up in the air right now like if cashman screws this up i don't know and guys look i've seen uh i think talking jake or whatever from john boy put it out and he had dj lo this is my team he got dj lemayo at third base and catcher gary sound like that is the worst you can get out of this off season that would be like the worst plan you can get first of all because three of the five infield positions are bad correct and you why would you why why even look see if i'm hal steinbrenner let me tell you right now what i'm saying to cashman he comes in my room and shows me that i'm saying all right here's the deal we're not signing nobody then i'm not wasting money just so you know i'm i'm the boss one i'm not wasting money what are you doing guys just so you know and everybody's entitled to their opinion i'm just saying that opinion is [ __ ] and i retweeted it and i said that opinion is [ __ ] because it is if you make all those changes to the yankees and you put dg lemayo in his worst position which is third base and you still got gary sanchez behind the plate i don't care what you do it's not good enough bro it's listen oh shout out shout out to ryan is in the building ryan beck shouts out to ryan bro listen oh and joe joe's in the chat too somewhere i saw joe listen what i want to say is this any and i'm laughing because it's like i i really have had it up to here with this any infield alineation that has dj le mayheu not at second base is going to perpetually irk my last nerve why dj the mayhew is not 25 he's not 26 he's not 24. dj maybe he was in his 30s dj me he needs to be in a position where he is going to be successful now yes dj mayhew was signed as a super utility guy and he is comfortable moving around but what we think at this point is that we just signed him to a six-year deal all right i don't think i signed him for six years so that he's going to be all over the place filling in we signed him to six years because of the two years that he gave us and those two years that he gave us he was playing more often than not like second base but he did move around to first and third that's true but his best position is second base why are we flirting with this idea of moving geo putting dj at third having glaber still at second and gary sanchez still still catching that doesn't help us defensively we didn't get better in the infield the yankees need to get better defensively guys this is not i'm sorry like this is not a a place where i'm even willing to like debate because i don't feel like i i don't see how you can make the debate that it's okay oh because gary sanchez is still gonna hit you 20 plus home runs who cares yeah that's the kick that is the worst how many games how many games is he going to lose us because he doesn't frame as well as the other catchers doing today's game because he doesn't move behind the plate well how many how many and in the big games is he even going to start in the big games the funniest the funniest thing about that post by jake to me was that it was opening day and that was that's a lie because opening day gary cole is bitching and gary doesn't catch gary cole so i was like he's already alive but see that is not when people bring up production on gary sanchez the first thing i say to them is this but you got gallow you expect him to be more productive than joey gallo i don't he makes up for it whatever production you thought you got gallow makes up for it yeah so i don't understand that but you're working on moving oh no one one quick point about gala before we jump on gallow defensively i mean just won a gold glove but we know what he's going to do with his glove out there in exactly on on the field offensively yes gallow is not going to be a high average guy gallow is going to strike out a lot that is true but i was doing research last night after watching that career interview because correa spoke positively about joey gallo in a way that shocked me and i was like okay let me look at it and i went and looked and gallow production wise right look at on base percent look at how many times he was getting on base in games down the street whatever he got on base higher than i would say more than half of our lineup right and he batted like 200 he batted 199 and he was still getting on base at a higher clip than more than half of our lineup including gary sanchez glaber torres geo rochelle aaron hick like hey oh please the people with the gallows and for all the people through that talk [ __ ] about dj lemayo the yankees was so bad he led them in hits so i mean everybody talks trash but we got another super chat here from mike m he said listen if the yanks end up with story because they didn't want to spend big then it's uh what it is but if cash gets the green light and money is closed i'd be upset if they don't sign seeger over correa uh defense matters um he said seeger over korea because he would be upset if they signed seeger over correa he thinks if they do money which i think we've said that too before yeah we really do spend the money correa is the guy to spend the money on if you're going listen my point with that is is actually short for once if you're going to go to 300 million then pay correa career if you're going to be if you're going to be in that stratosphere anyway just go and get the best that's it like that's that's where i fall on it i agree you're going to spend that kind of money if you're going to spend that kind of money anyway like just go and get just go and get korea how much i guess the question and i'd love to see what some of you guys responses is in the chat how far away in terms of years and dollars do you guys think correa and seeger are going to be because i don't think it could be 10 to 15 to 20 million maybe less i would say i would say 20 million max and most of the insiders are are projecting 20 million bowdoin has them at a 20 million gap yeah bowden's never he's the only one i think he's never right ever no he's wit i think i think he's off with with correa and seeger he has seeger getting more money than korea i don't i don't see that i i think i i've said it before i don't know if maybe i'm wrong maybe i'm nuts when somebody told me early on that he's getting 300 plus million i said he doesn't need like 275. i don't know i will see maybe i'm wrong i don't know what warrants him getting 300 million is it seeger i mean the same thing with correa i'm sorry yes you're basing it off of potential though i know these guys are good but you're basing enough potential people want to talk trash about aaron judge don't start on it because he's older and he's injury prone he's played more games than both of them yeah aaron judge aaron judge is interested i guess i'll save that point because i'd like to talk about maybe i'm confusing all this money stuff because france is me and you've had a back and forth even about verlander because i don't think yeah i think you're nuts like somebody said they're gonna would you be happy if somebody just said this i forgot who it was so i apologize but i did see the question somebody said would you be happy if they signed verlander to a two-year 40 million deal no i'd be on here right now telling you i'm pissed out my mind it's stupid my man hasn't pitched in 2019 since 2019 he's coming off surgery he's 30 38 years old he pitches with spider attack why would you give that dude 20 million a year you got to be out your freaking mind so so here's the deal starting from back with the shorts francis laughs at me guys 12 million no no friend guys this is he i know some of you gonna think he's joke pete is dead ass i'm not joking he's not giving verlander more than 12 million no look i would give him more but it has to be severely incentive based i am not guaranteeing that dude yeah there you go look he won't guarantee derrick derrick calls healthy with without spider attack my dude is injured and we don't know who he is you're getting an unknown right you could say oh i wonder i won the uh i won the the cy young in 2019. yeah okay and uh well you know i've done many things two years ago too that i might not be able to do today so what what does that do for me nothing i don't care so here's uh here's the thing right when it comes to the money and i'm speaking from a place guys of somebody who's like been studying this this uh this salary thing for like i don't know i want to say some like 20 2012 when i really got interested in it or whatever when was the jacobi when was jacoby juice when did we sign jacoby oh god i don't even want to remember it was like because i had just i had really gotten into like baseball salaries and things like that about a year or two before before we signed jacoby ellsberry jacoby elsberry was signed by the new york yankees in 24. i was going to say 2014 2014 2014 so then i was right 2012. i've been i've been doing this since 2012. right what what happens with the contracts guys is very simple right the market is set early on depending and then depending on your player com your player comp your player comparison that is where the market gets set at for you then a couple things can change that right so i'm gonna elaborate on so you guys can understand me because it's it's difficult to understand the reason that the market for carlos correa and corey seeger is starting at that crazy number of 300 million is because the mets were crazy enough to sign francisco lindor for 341 million it's because it's because san diego extended tatis for i want to get i want to get this number right i want to get this number right uh tatis what are you like a 10-year deal didn't he or more than that yeah tatis signed a 14-year 340 million dollar extension okay so what happens see what we don't see when this happens like and i was one of the people out there fernando tati's got extended i was like hey man you don't congrats get your money or whatever but guys like open your eyes because this this is gonna this is gonna send shockwaves through the industry when you sign a kid who hasn't proven and tatis is great so please don't misunderstand me but tatis hasn't won an mvp tatis hasn't won a world series ring right tatis hasn't had a crate like you know i mean like a crazy postseason run and when i say crazy post season run i'm not talking about a wild card game or a nlds i mean an nlds nlcs and a couple good games in the world series like i mean something like that tatis hasn't even been to a world series like he got extended because of what they imagine he's going to do as a player and what they know for sure he's going to do in terms of like sales and stuff right but 340 million for him 341 million for francisco lindor it just shows you what's happening with the market lindor got 341 million for the sole purpose of being able to say he got more than fernando tati's facts now now you guys now you guys might think no that's just something people said no no that is a hundred percent a fact 341 million is not a round it's not a round figure he literally wanted he literally made the mets go to 341 so that he could get one more million than tatis and he could be the highest shortstop yep so if you think for one second that carlos correa and his group the rosen group is gonna sit back and say that they're not trying to get at least 342 we have another thing coming no no question about it that's a win that's a win for the agency too exactly signed the largest contract ever at that position exactly exactly and this is why i keep telling people like with juan soto like as much as as much as we like some people hate him they think he's a fan of whatever we're boris or whatever boris is already planning to make to make to make juan soto the first 500 million dollar contract you guys might think that sounds absolutely crazy no it doesn't it's not lindor is a great player switch hitting shortstop you know saying nice smile looks good in the jersey he's good for commercials he's good for advertising he he checks all the boxes you want right been to the playoffs been there done that clutch a little bit 341 million dollars was a lot of money for him it was a lot of money for him but they had to go there because they had to go there because tati's got it yep and then the mets got suckered into it because he was there and he gave them a deadline and they didn't have the proper leadership kind of negotiating that deal and they folded they felt they felt the pressure of the fans they felt the pressure of everybody and they said oh my god we traded for this guy we gave up rosario whatever and now we're going to risk losing them and he's going to go to that that crazy mark of the short stops next year and then anything can happen you know what 341 fine give it to him yeah well now the repercussions of that is that corey secret's going to want 300 million of course and who are and who are who who are we to say that he can't get 300 million when francisco and doris sitting there with 341. trump can you argue like complete that's the market that's the most all they're going to do the market i mean it's all about the market you're 100 right now now who now no does that mean that i agree with the money that they get no no i first of all i fall on the same side of the coin that pete does i think a lot of these contracts are blown with i love gary cole i think that garrett co-contract is absolutely [ __ ] ridiculous of course it is it did like there's like we're paying we're paying pictures we pay gary cole 36 million dollars a year now and he plays every five days like it's great it's gary but but but here's the thing if you ask me oh so you wouldn't have signed gary cole to that d no no i would have signed him to that deal 10 times out of 10 why because that was the only way to get him and we needed him yeah of course but what i'm saying he was going to get it by somebody so it wasn't like you're blowing somebody out the water somebody listen if if we didn't give him the 300 or whatever 46 minute whatever art moreno in la was going to give him 350 or 360. it was it was going to happen so that's why i say would i sign the deal 10 of course 10 times out of 10 i signed it why because we needed gary cole he's supposed to be here and i still believe he's going to be a part of a championship winning new york yankees team so i pay him what i'm saying is that these numbers have gotten inflated and blown completely out of proportion and that's why we're in a situation where whether you think corey secret is worth 300 million or not whether you think that correa is worth 300 million or not is all secondary because they're agents and the players association because if you you guys think you hate scott boris that's the dead of worst the players association they're not going to make things you think you hate scott boris you don't even realize the guy you really hate is tony clark because i love one thing i love that fan says well maybe they'll just give a discount no they're there there's no such thing and they don't do things like that let me tell you something right now marketing value is something and they they looked at oh want to take this deal a lot no it don't work that way it don't work that way that's true guys i'm going to tell you right now aaron judge has come out on several interviews and even his most recent interview and say i want to be a yankee i want to finish my career like i want to be a community i'm all from 150 million let me let me tell you right now if the yankees come if the yankees come low on an extension offer or offer a free agency tony clark will die before he allows aaron freaking judge just to sign a low ball deal to stay on the new york yankees are you kidding me he said aaron we already bought your trip to uh to san francisco you're out he's like bro because what they're telling the players is and the players are believing it but it's not necessarily true and i'll tell you why after what they're telling the players is if you aaron judge who's one of the top five best players in the game top three top three in some circles if you take a pay cut on your extension just because you're 30 and had a couple of knicks here and there what's gonna happen to guys like michael conforto yeah that's right what's gonna happen to guys like byron buck what's gonna happen to these other guys well maybe he's talking about conforto getting 20 plus million a year comfortable guys comforto might very well turn i think i if i had to he might be a real sleeper too if i had to guess conforto qualifying offer decision i think conforto turns it down and goes out and gets the deal for multiple years making an amount of money that i would i would have been shocked if you would tell me he was going to make that amount of money yeah but because the market is where it is you want to look at you want to look at a good barometer for michael conforto do you guys remember the pollock deal to the doctors yeah yeah aj pollock do you remember that contract yep i do four years four years 55 million yep right that's an average of almost 14 million a year for pollock pollock had a very spotty injury history and whatever and the dodgers were willing to give them almost 14 million in a year over five conforto is younger doesn't have the injury thing i mean been to you know been been to the playoffs got a little bummer is he is he one of the top would you name him as one of your top 10 outfielders i probably wouldn't no and paul at the end of the at the end of the day he had the injuries but he had a good year he was worth it i mean he was worth the 3.1 war he uh 297 he hit 21 homers and only 384 at basket i could hit 50 home runs last year the reason that i bring up the pollock deal is to tell you yeah right i know what you mean comforto is about to make that pollock deal look like a steal likely likely and people and people didn't like that deal when it happened he's like oh you're going to give him a five-year deal that i would watch watch when we see what conforto gets watch when we see what comfortable again there's people out there who will pay him there's a lot of people out there there's a lot of people in the market for center fielders right now and whoever strikes out whoever strikes out on marta is going to pivot more likely than not to michael conforto facts so moving on we have a couple of super chats here anthony medina our good friend hey guys do you think if the yankees traded for rentals would it pretty much eliminate them from getting olsen yes i agree dumb question but only just saying it's never a dumb question my man and i would say yes i don't think they they would be able to get both of them i think that would be like france was talking about maybe you go for it you got everything and look to win in the next two years but i don't i definitely don't see the yankees doing that listen listen would i would i still try to do it yes um of course one i'm not i'm i don't have experience as a gm so say i was a gm this year i would i would be willing to play a little bit more risky because i'm new i'm new i'm not seasoned i don't have a legacy to ruin i'm new i'm cutting my teeth in the industry if i was the gm of the yankees right now i would be trying instead of even talking to scott boris and the rosen group about corey seeger and trevor and um carlos correa i'd be more interested right now in trading for reynolds and stallings and matt olsen and gutting my farm and seeing francis can i let me throw this out go ahead yeah you might be able to keep anthony volpe you're right laboratories you're right so you can start a deal with glaiber taurus and let me throw something else out there no jordan montgomery probably not because he's he's gonna have to be resigned uh resigned soon so i don't see that happening but you could start that with maybe a you know um looking at olson hey we're already giving you glebe torres domingo herman could pitch for you for a couple of years and he's cheap depending on who we don't give up is there a possibility of austin wells i mean you'll have the capital to do a deal so here's my here here's my thing and that's why i'm saying i would feel like i personally would feel like you can do this deal you just you just need to be you need to think outside of the box right and you've got to be willing to take the heat right yeah and you have exactly ready to answer exactly so you got to be ready to say this is why i did it exactly and that's why i say i would do this deal because i don't have a legacy that i can ruin i'm a new gm i'm just showing up here so that that deal that was sent to us you're talking about oh we're giving up medina we're giving up uh yo injuries we're giving up jason dominguez we're giving up peraza we're uh for brian reynolds and jacob stallings sign where do i sign send them get them on the plane you could be right now can i let me just say this too real quick before i get to the next chats there the next super chats and all the other um all the other guys out there when it comes to catcher people really really forget how important the defense is and i think gary sanchez is kind of you know no knock on him but people really forget the difference that a good catcher can make on a ball club i'm not joking when i tell you guys this jacob's stallings alone would make the yankees way better than they were in 2021 i'm not joking i have no jacob i just wish he looked that's our job here to do i'm not saying we're smarter than everybody else but we have a platform so for the people who don't understand that i challenge you to open your mind up go watch highlights look at what these guys do remember what you watched over the last couple of years jacob stallings would never be benched because a pitcher doesn't want to throw to him jacob stallings will block balls guys can throw the ball in the dirt and feel very comfortable doing so that is super important he also i think he has like the best frame rate in baseball too he's still overall strikes stole more strikes i think anybody in the world stole more strikes than anybody no pass balls none i'm not saying he'll do that again because you know once he has one or two oh my god it's hard to do but to go a whole season and have no past balls dude how freaking good you got to be the yankee and by the way too i think he's like six foot five which is very rare for a catcher he's really big but this this he would greatly improve the club so getting off that you know that's the thing you gotta think about gary sanchez but tyler uh pearson says much love from canada appreciate the continued honesty and raw content guy hey tyler man we appreciate that i'm happy that you guys are recognizing it because that's all we do here that's literally what ny news is about ella yankee king with the super chat i'll say this brian cashman will screw this up because he's a bottom 5 gm and everything i've said since 2018 will be right i hope i'm wrong francis i'm gonna let you take that one uh all right i'm bottom five gm is a little bit crazy i i actually disagree and i i've been very critical he's not a bottom five gm but yeah he's not one of i don't think he's one of the best i i don't think he's one of the best but right now yeah right right now i think there's a lot of there's a lot more better gms than cashman than there were in the early 2000s and things like that but bottom five is is rough all right the mets are about to hire a guy who was like an assistant gm a couple years back like that to me that's bottom five this is this is brian cashman like this is the same guy who had one of the better deadlines this year right so i'm not gonna say he's bottom five um and will can cashman [ __ ] this up this offseason 100 100 100 that's it's a possibility um again like i said when our when we did our first episode after the season was over for the yankees i feel optimistic that the that he doesn't screw this up because it's so easy not to screw it up this offseason hey can i just jump into real quick with something yeah so what i've been telling you guys a lot about when it comes to the 300 million francis i'm gonna tell you off the record who this person is just got a message and they said directly and this is somebody you guys everybody in this room would know knows his [ __ ] okay i'm sure they do not want to sign a shortstop for 300 million okay francis i'm going to tell you when we get offline i don't have permission to tell it from this person because they are involved pretty um pretty highly were and still are so i'll i'll stop it at that but that is now four people who have told me that they will not sign somebody with 100 million now again this is not pete saying that that's gonna happen i'm reporting on what i'm being told and that's another one i'm being told so that's um that's it again listen guys here's the thing and i know just just got it just now i know people i know people aren't aren't excited to hear that but to play devil's advocate if you will right the yankees already have the big contracts of garrett cole and john carlos stanton on the payroll they also unfortunately are still paying around 30 million for two relievers they pay aaron hicks 10 million a year they pay severino i think another 10 million a year like this is all before they have extended aaron judge an extension offer or signed him in free agency after next year um this is all while still having a team that needs a first baseman needs a short stop needs an upgrade in center field and and catcher right that a team that also has a left fielder in joey gallo who's a free agent after this year so when you factor all of that in what does that tell you that tells you that you do need financial flexibility even if you're the new york yankees that doesn't mean that doesn't mean that the yankees aren't going to raise their payroll up to 250 260 270 280 even 290. that doesn't mean that i don't want there's a lot of people who when they hear when they heard oh they don't want to sign a 300 million deal oh that means that they want to stay under the luxury tax again no no that these are two different things the luxury tax thing is cumulative of all the contracts that you have on your roster right a 300 million dollar contract is for one player what hal says if he is indeed saying i don't want to sign another 300 million deal what he's indeed saying is i don't want to be committing 30 million dollars to another guy right now correct because i already commit 36 to garrett i already commit almost 30 to john carlo i'm already committing another 30 to two relievers and he's also apparently a big judge fan so that he he wants judges to stay there for the long term exactly well he would he would he would basically the thing about how steinberg everything i've hear and everything i've been told i was told i think during mid-season when i put that video out literally the person told me if you get if you asked him right now to write out the 25 man roster he wouldn't be able to do it so that's his interest in the day-to-day operations of this ball club but when you're a fan of a player and he's a fan of aaron judge that's the one thing i hear about a lot that he really likes aaron judge and he wants to lock him up long term he has he has a a invested interest in possibly giving something like that to aaron judge yeah when he wouldn't have that with the carlos correa or somebody else right now well listen god that's that's that that's another point right because when you add up all that money that i was just saying they already have committed they still haven't signed judge to his deal and though we've been critical about the fact that they haven't started those extension talks and things like that or whatever make no mistake about it we do believe that the yankees are going to be in on aaron judge and try to keep him long-term of course guys it the only thing like it's not really hard to see the only thing you have to do is look and look at right field like the whole judges chambers things of whatever look at how long jeter was a yankee they never put a there wasn't a section in the seats called the captain's corner or something like that like for the yankees to go and do what they did in right field for aaron judge that was a huge huge thing that was very unyankee like i was really surprised when i saw that happen and i said whoa they really are crazy about this kid so that all says to me that they are going to try and keep this guy especially if hal says i don't care what you do that's my guy he needs to be on this team that means that they could end up even overpaying for judge as if they had to because they got to keep them they got to keep them so yeah maybe they maybe they can't afford to pay a shortstop 30 million 32 million a year right you know what i mean but maybe that meat look i mean that the thing at the end of the day is you can still win you know yeah this that's why i said and i i god i i i know somebody said recently pete you repeat yourself a lot i'm not trying to repeat myself so much but this is the off-season to lose out on a big guy this is it and i hate saying that because that's not the yankee way and i get it of course not it's not i get it but if you're gonna ever do it this is the season to do it because you could still make a lot of that money you could still sign a lot of these big guys i understand that the fear because look at the end of the day true true you know we could talk about money all day but we also remember they got to be the fear of how many years you're a lot you're committing to somebody here correa is gonna get what do you think eight years minimum korea signs between ten and twelve years and maybe he has an op-ed after three years or two yeah you never know three three four maybe and i mean you think six seven eight around there i think the same thing for seeger six seven or eight it's a big commitment to somebody that's a big commitment listen carlos correa just turned 27. carlos correa is going to get 10 years or more facts no doubt about it and i think corey seeger i think corey seeger is only like a year older than correa at 28. so he's another one who's gonna get 10 years maybe another year or something like that these are 10-year contracts listen i again i will tell you guys this if i had if i had you know my my way the yankees sign carlos correa and the reason behind it is because he's the best shortstop there he's the best shortstop there and i don't believe that cashman is going to make the amount of trades that it would take for me to be like oh i'm cool like you know not getting the best shortstop out there or whatever because i just don't see cashman doing that because he's been a prospect hugger for as long as we've seen him but that could all be different now we don't like i don't know maybe maybe maybe some of the stuff that he's been saying in these interviews is true like maybe maybe they are going in a different direction i don't know i don't see the actually i think a lot of it's going to tell us too when they start non-tendering guys i think that's going to be the real bright spot of being like this is the route this team's taking you know what i mean if if you see them bring gary back and they come out and just like you know gary's gonna be our starting catcher immediately right there i'm like guys pack it in pack it and go home i'm telling you guys right now i and i i've said this again gary sanchez is your starting couch it team's not not serious about winning and you can't convince me you could say all damn day that you want oh beauty get hit i don't give a [ __ ] he can't catch that's not going to change he's not going to be comfortable he's not going to become a gold glove catcher overnight he's not going to do it he's never going to be that he's never going to be that you don't need that you don't need that the offense from that position this team is begging for a very good defensive cash and it will make them so much better your head would spin your head would spin that's how much better this team would come if you just did that alone story olson or rizzo sorry i just want i just want to get a lot of these other questions in here oh for sure story olson or rizzo who would we choose out of those three olsen yeah if i had to olson for many different reasons let me tell you why he's going to be cheap and the reason why i know i know what a yankees but here listen hear me out if you don't spend the money elsewhere you got to spend it somewhere they're going to spend money they're going to sign somebody ray john gray maybe gauzeman marte there's a lot of different routes you can take with that being said there's a lot of different routes you could take roberto perez it's true you know what i mean there's another catcher out there that's from um richard just said that i'll sign roberto perez instead of jan gomes but even young gomez perez those are two catchers yeah people will see the 197 average on perez and cry but he's amazing defensively and he works great with guys i mean what was gary's average at the end well people forget that people still think he's an all-star apparently will will says story worries me away from coors well it was the same thing with dj lemayo and look at look at that turned out look guys guys a ball player is a ball player todd helton was going to hit anywhere a good hitter is going to hit anywhere you know what i mean carlos gonzalez dj lemay you guys good hitters are gonna hit baseballs doesn't matter what they play does it help yeah of course it helps but it's not gonna make the world of a difference listen i'll tell you guys i'll tell you guys like this me for me for me most importantly is not the most important like uh position right now this uh off season is not even necessarily short style it's actually it's not at all it's one of them at least some people think some people think i'm crazy to say that but what i'm saying is because there are so many options at shortstop it doesn't require as much focus and attention because it's really hard to screw up in signing any of these guys like right you're not it's like oh we ended up with seeger instead of correa seeger's freaking amazing oh we ended up with simeon instead of seeger or korea simeon's freaking a mate oh no we ended up with story instead of all the other guys stories are made oh god uh we we just got javi baez here's how we'll be mad i mean we'll be mad if they sign andrewson simmons if we have beef that'll piss me the [ __ ] off bro that will yeah then we have beef if that were to happen we got a legitimate beef to be like all right you guys had all this [ __ ] you didn't do nothing you mean to tell me you couldn't get one of these one of these five you couldn't do it fast you you went and got seven you got sevens you literally told us look no we packing it in early forget what what nah he said make your vacate make your vacation plans for the end of september see see jim jim duggan in the chat um jim was actually the guy who was like you guys are changing anything you know you're just gonna go on twitch you were wrong about that jim and you're also wrong about this we don't have a shortstop what are you talking about that is the no it's not it's not the main position because like francis just said you got so many options if you miss out on correa who cares if you get story if you miss it on story who cares if you get simeon if you miss it on youtube who cares if you get buys you have options there the point that yeah jim the point that we're trying to make here is that shortstop has more options than the other holes in our lives yeah look at the catcher to get better at catcher to get better at catcher that's a little bit trickier this offseason why because the number one guys that you want you have to trade for um a guy like stallings a guy like carson kelly they're going to cost if you if you sign one of these guys out there they're going to cost you got to trade for them they're going to cost and that wouldn't be a problem if you already had your first basement but you don't have your first basement right at first base you know that if you're moving off of luke voight there then you need to get a guy like first base is not a position where you can sacrifice the offense but you also cannot sacrifice a defense contrary to popular belief especially not when you have guys in the infield like labor tourists so first base either needs to be matt olson or anthony rizzo the fan base will accept nothing less than those two guys if dj lemayo is starting for his basement or luke voight by some stretch of the imagination imagine imagination is the first baseman next year that is a huge failure can i say one thing about that can i give a different opinion on that sure i have actually been on the favor side of if dj lemayo does play somewhere else let it be first base but you gotta upgrade everywhere else that has to be like your guys here's the reasoning we did this because okay uh again let's let's [ __ ] right yeah we got a great shortstop and we also got matt chapman at third base and then we also got starlin martin center feeling we had a robbie ray so with all that being said we understand we're taking a little bit of a hit at first base but let me say this too i actually think dj lemay will be better at first than people think he actually grades as the second best position at first base based off analytics and all that but would i be upset if somebody were to tell me right now that's going to happen yeah of course because that's not that is not the best club they could put on the field yeah no just to give a different opinion no no no listen i if if dj is at first but we upgraded that third short and second and center field and center field and catcher or three of those four or three of those five even then so be okay with that yeah that's so be it but what i'm saying what i'm saying right now is like look it's a lot harder to get it wrong at shortstop than it is at first base catcher center field right now because there's so there's a lot of different things you can do at shortstop at center field there's only there's a limited number of things that are available to the yankees at center field right now either we sign starling marte or maybe take a look at conforto or really you know conforta would never shock me comfortable in shock a lot of people a lot of people are overlooking them because they're like i wanna know why the mets or whatever you wanna know why he wouldn't shock me let's not forget who's running the yankees the analytical department and athletics love yeah they think he's gonna have a huge bounce back that wouldn't shock me one bit and i gotta answer a question here joseph i love you but i gotta answer this question is that under not our joe there's another this is joseph i understand i didn't say killer i understand your feelings on sanchez i feel that way about torahs but you always get scared when you see a butt we won 92 games with gary at the bottom of the lineup fam this is the problem you're only thinking about offense defense is friggin important i want to shout out christian too from the nyst podcast he said the other day on twitter he's amazed by how many people think you could put anybody at first base why do you guys not care about defense i think that doesn't win you games because they've been watching and fans of a team that hasn't heard about defense and on top of it it's like pop says i love when pop says this right pops always tells me this i'll call pops up and i say yeah people always just you know talk about production for gary [ __ ] says this what production what can't they not make up with another guy that gary sanchez gives all they got to make up is a couple of homers this is what i'm saying what people don't realize is gary hit 20-plus homers this year if we get matt olsen and sign trevor story at shortstop or simmering that shortstop we just doubled bro sanchez's home runs no but even with better defense and better contact and lower strikeouts the start of 2021 i always bring this up you already did that with joey gallo they already did it it wasn't part of the plan but the thing with the thing with the thing with fans is like is this peter and this this i had to call you by your government just to get this point out they've been fans of a team that hasn't cared about defense for over a decade that's why they don't care about defense it's simple as that yeah that's why they don't care about defense because think about it think about it this was the team that was putting miguel and duhar and clint frazier in left field and telling and telling us that was okay this was a team that had moved geo to shortstop at the end of the year and told us that that was okay this is a team that has played dj at third base and told us that that was okay this is a team that had glamorous torres as our starting shortstop and thought that was okay they put odor at third base told us that was okay they had gary sanchez catching and tell us that that is okay that's why they think it's okay but the truth of the matter is it's not okay just because the yankees do it fact justin can you can you put that again in the chat this time in all capital letters because i think i want everybody to see this your up the middle defense has to be elite that's what i've been saying and that's what i've been saying justin good looks i've been saying that the yankees have the opportunity you got the bet one of the best defensive second base in the baseball in the club already dj lemay you you have the chance to sign trevor story correa who i think are the two best defensive minded of the group yeah and then you've got a center fielder potentially in aaron hicks if he doesn't play every day and also potentially estevan florio we know how good he is offensively but you also got the option of starla marte if you get trevor story let me tell you something i'm gonna go right up the middle for you if i'm brian cashman i'm sitting in a room and i'm saying okay mr steinbrenner you're the boss you're the owner of this club by all means i'll see if these guys will sign for under three and we'll go with that route if not i want to present something to you i'm gonna just stay up the middle i'm gonna say a catcher shortstop and center field actually justin just because you said that's so good i'm gonna go exactly what you said and i'm gonna teach you guys something here you ready for this and justin just did it and he has to edit the things i need second base catcher sure stop and send a few i'm brian cashman i go to steinberg i say all right 300 million is not going to happen no problem we'll see what we could do but hey uh hell mr george son of george no your father george what the hell am i saying shut the hell up pete keep moving this is what that guy's probably talking about i never get to my point let me get to my point my daughter does the same thing too it's pretty funny catcher here listen to me now i'm going to go out there trade for jacob stalin's who is going to cost a good prospect maybe oswaldo cabrera a good pitching prospect in oswaldo cabrera great go do it jacob stallings shortstop i'm going to sign trevor story to maybe 165. we'll go a little high 165. i'll throw it out then maybe that's it who the hell knows i don't even care at this point i'm not even talking about first base but we have an opportunity to trade glebe tourists i'm putting digital mayo at second base and i'm signing starland martay in center field name me a team that got a better off the middle i'll wait patiently you're not gonna find one i'll give you a spoiler right now you're not gonna find one defense wise offense wise talent wise you are not gonna fi and look if the yankees came out and only did that and again there's there's other moves you know you trade labor for something maybe olson and a few other guys you got olsen at first you could sign maybe robbie ray maybe you could sign a john gray maybe a ghostman on the market maybe you could trade for a starter but i'm not even going i'm talking up the middle if that is your backup plan or even your 1a i wouldn't be mad at all that is a tremendous get hell yeah and it makes all the sense in the world can anybody really in the comments section sit there like pete you're wrong on that no come on guys look what we're talking about what we're talking about here is that defense is super important look i watched an interview with carlos correa last night it's about an hour long and for like 45 minutes they're just talking about defense carlos correa is talking about defense and why it's so important and why you need elite people why you need people who are looking at their numbers every week who does he mention by the way france he mentioned yeah yeah he mentioned and and listen to the guys that he mentions at catcher they they just brought up the catcher position the first name out of his mouth was jacob stallman's the next words out of his mouth was that he never even really got to see the guy but he knew that the guy was elite because he was on every website that gives you the analytical breakdown of people's performance and he and the team's catcher maldonado were like this guy's this guy's playing out of his mind they weren't talking about offense they were looking at his defensive metrics on the pirates a team that lost a ridiculous amount of gains but they were looking at him because they were like this guy is excelling defensively he's a problem like this guy's really having a great freaking year to the point where the host of the interview is getting upset because he's like oh but they robbed yadi or molina got a year but should have got it of course you know careers puerto rican the host of the show is puerto rican they're talking about you know whatever so there was this whole thing it's like yo yadi you know yachty's the puerto rican guy he's one of their big guys he's one of the big legends i get it but carlos says listen i feel you i love yachty tubes but these numbers don't lie this jacob stallings kid played out of his mind this year this guy was elite and he said it several times speaking about defense you know who else he brought he brought up joey gallo because the guy was like but how's that fair you know joey gallo he was playing right field but then he got to the yankees and he wasn't in right field anymore because they had judge so how does he win the gold glove for right field whatever he said he played more than half of his games in right field and regardless of whether where he was on the field he was a plus glove he deserved it i was like i can't argue with that he's right he's right he said why do why is defense so important why was winning the gold glove so important to him this year he said he didn't get it last year he looked he wanted to see why he didn't get it because according to all the stats that he knew he was the number one guy he went and found out that there were different things there was like ooze er there was things there was things that uh you know determine the range that you have and how many plays more plays above average and things like that he went studied it understood it and said okay so i have to do this this and this to ensure that i win the gold glove this year not only did he win the gold glove he won the freaking platinum glove right why do you think why do you think he cares about that he's already one of the better hitters in the league today he's already one of the more clutch hitters in the postseason today why does it matter well because i'll tell you why it matters in his words the defense wins the championship the defense wins the championship you cannot be giving away outs and runs because of poor defense that's in the words of one of the biggest free agents right now he says that if you're not prac one of the things one of my favorite quotes from that interview he says i see a lot of guys they go to practice and they're going half speed maybe 25 speed right they're taking six seconds to throw the ball in practice he said the average baseball player gets down the line in 4.3 seconds if you're practicing throwing the ball at six seconds in the game you have to rush it two seconds more why practice two seconds slower than you need to have it for the game no no you're practicing to lose basically he said i practice at game speed and i make everybody around me practice at game speed because we're not practicing to play the game like we practice we're practicing the way that we play the game and i was like this guy gets it yeah francis by the way guys let's not be overlooked francis became one of the biggest carlos correa fans last night after seeing this i mean he said flat out if you spend the money this is the guy you get you were sold 100 100 listen hi guys guys i'm gonna tell you i watched it i sent it to the chat i sent it so rb i sent it so arby could watch it guys i watched this interview and was 100 sold i said if i'm if i'm dolling out that kind of money i want to give it because his mentality is like the way he was speaking this guy is obsessed with baseball much in the way that gary cole is remember when we were recording gary cole and all that stuff came out oh this guy's always watching video he's always watching tape he's always looking at the you know peripheral stats he's big into analytics he's looking to try to this is basically shortstop garrett cole like all he talked about was different numbers different stats different and and he could quote people's stats off the top of his head like when he brought up jacob jacob stallings he didn't just bring up a name and said yeah that guy's good no no he gave you the numbers yeah he gave it up of how many how many strikes he stole and how much and how much less strikes yachty stole than he stole and the guy's like but yadi threw out more runners he's like yeah but like this guy's stealing strikes so that the runner doesn't even get on base i was like i'm freaking that kind of mentality we don't have that right now in the yankee i don't know that we do if we do it's really well hidden because i i told i put it in our chat last night i was like i wonder if glebe torres knows any of this no no i wonder if gary sanchez knows any of this no that carlos is talking about right now he's quoting it like real nonchalant matter of factly it's like bro where are we and i'm not saying that corey seeger is not that guy i hope that there's an interview of corey seeger out there speaking like this because i'd love to give him the praise too but that's that's what i'm saying it's like bro we need guys like this who are obsessed with getting better who are obsessed with winning championships who understand that defense can't be overlooked i'm really happy that joey gallo is our left fielder next year i know that he's going to strike out a time i think he's going to hit a little bit better average wise and i really think it's going gonna be nice to have all his home runs being hit for us um but most importantly i love the fact that we're we're not putting out a reclamation project in left field we're not putting out an experiment in left field and playing playing in a division with the amount of right-handed pull hitters that we play in and we have a project in left field facts facts i'm sorry guys if you don't get the defense matters it matters it's so damn important i mean look at the yankees winning the championship look what the first baseman was you know what i mean they had they had of course tino then they had you know you know what i mean these posi there's very important positions and it's funny because two of the most important are the ones that fans talk [ __ ] about on the yankees is first base and catcher it's crazy ella yankee king goes ahead oh my god oh my goodness god man i mean i appreciate the super chat but you didn't have to give 9.99 for that fam i'ma keep it real with you i'm gonna keep it real you said uh pete and friends i bet you cashman does this because he's a bottom five gm pirates acquired labor torres yankees acquired jacob stalls there is no way in the world that that happens one i love jacob stalin's fan but he is not worth he's not going to be worth global torrez and on top of that i mean the pirates have nick gonzalez on el cruz you know they got a ton of guys in didn't feel second third and short it's probably going to be covered for years to come they don't need yeah it wouldn't it wouldn't make a ton of sense right there um to do something like that uh if you're if you're adding i'm not even gonna i'm not even gonna start talking about labor to the pirates at all because none of that makes sense i don't think they'd even want them for brian reynolds to be honest i think they look more towards prospects that can help him now and in the future um to go that route but yeah i appreciate the super chat fam i i don't see that buddy i'm sorry i uh lie gotta love you uh we miss you we miss you on twitter don't know what happened to you there yeah why are you not yet throw it in the in the in the section down there why are you not back on twitter because i thought you came back for the yeah killed you crushed you killed joe killed you for a minute he came for you you came back you rescued you resurrected for a second and then you disappeared again so we're trying to figure out uh yeah super chat us super chat is that why the hell what's going on with you on twitter um but yeah bro i don't know this whole thing with labor tours i know eli you love glebe torres i'm sorry buddy but i mean if again if i had my weight laboratory is not on the yankees next year there's just no way well to be fair their best alignment doesn't have a minute and i mean that's just and that's true and that's and that's why because i'd rather i'd rather have dj le mayhew playing second base and i i am comfortable losing the potential of global tourism i'm not saying that laboratories is going to be bad we say this all the time it's like a broken record laboratory is probably going to be fine if we trade him somewhere else he's probably even going to be an all-star if we trade him somewhere else i don't necessarily need him over here trying to figure that out can i tell you it out elsewhere can i tell you why i'm very much against labor taurus it's the same thing for gary sanchez now i'm just being real because that's that's all we do here so i'm just going to tell you my honest opinion i don't think neither one of them truly care and i'm being honest i don't think neither one of them truly care about the projection of their career i think they both have talent and they're both talented guys and they just live off that alone i don't think you see either one of them we talked to kevin kernan right kevin kern never mentioned that they're one of the guys out there early that they're there early in the morning they're there this he said that you know neither one of them are anything special but he expects that he'll be back at second base but i look at them and looking at this offseason i don't like to judge things off pitchers and stuff like that and be like oh maybe he's getting a little heavy i don't know but i would like to see a guy like glebe torres that young you know really really look look terrific i like to see videos of glaiber torres working on things instead of seeing videos of labor tourists trying to model an outfit i mean even nothing together hanging out with all these guys miguel anders took two pictures one he's in gucci or something the other one he's in something else holding a bat and i'm like bro you know you're you're a baseball player fan why why don't we you know you haven't played in a long time why don't we see you on the field to shoot andew hartson bill he's actually been posting up some work out has he so i missed that so so mickey ander who i i i still love and i think you're going to have a really good shot to be a dh in the national league if somebody calls upon you i think you could hit i don't think anybody should ever question if this kid could hit he could hit miguel hit a baseball bat he's a natural born here he can hit but and he's going to be good he's going to be good in the no when they add the dh this year and and look ryan's right let's call it like like it is gary and glabor are losers i feel the same i feel that way i do they're not i don't think not losers in life because they're successful i'm not gonna you know they got to that level they're not losers in life yeah i feel like they are not winning players i feel like these are losing players i don't win a lot with a lot of these guys on your team i would say my assessment of gleber and gary is that they're not championship players well there you go they're not i don't think that their championship material that's that's my take on them i said it when we had this conversation on desert we'll make it even in our episode yeah we can make it even easier we both feel the yankees are a better team without either one of them yeah no yeah that's and that has no knock on them as players because we both agree simple as that they may be very good elsewhere and they're talented guys neither one of us is saying that gary sanchez is completely untalented no of course not he is a very he is a very talented great point felix brought up a great point felix said if there was ever a time to trade uh stanton if the yankees ever want to do that not saying that they would but he's saying the best position for gary sanchez is as the h and then he even went on that went on the point of even saying well if other teams wanted the trade for him you can't say that teams wouldn't be lining up to trade for gary sanchez at the h i think a lot of teams will want him no i think i feel like if we non-tendered him if we non-tendered him and he was out there to be had i feel like the models will pick him up right away because they question they're looking for they're looking for offense they also are looking for a catcher they know he's not going to be the best defensive catcher but they know that the dh is coming to the nl and they know gary so they'll pick him up they'd pick him up the phillies might pick him up as a dh option there's so many places that would pick them up i would i would put my hands on fire for this one most of the teams in the national league would be like yeah even the bad teams the nationals would say yeah we could trade them we could see these guys at the age and then trade them yeah because he's gonna get because make no mistake about it when gary sanchez only has to focus about on hitting he's a hundred percent going to become a way better hitter than he's been the last couple of years you're going to see the average go up you're going to see the house go up even if his average goes up to 235 240 tops if that's tops he he would arguably be an elite dh but if he's go as i'm saying if gary sanchez is getting up to 235 240 and he's hitting you 35 plus home runs huge a lot of teams are going to want that that is what he here's what we're saying he's not going to do that as a catcher on the new york games no and i think we've seen we've seen that that is not going to happen so that means that his value is probably as a dh we do not have that position open because that is manned by giancarlo stanton right now and he is much better at it than gary sanchez would be so bye bye gary sanchez it just it is it's nothing personal it's nothing whatever it's just like you're not championship material for what we need you don't fit that material so you got to go laboratories what i mean i might have to make that shirt the glamorous ass shirt so tyler thank you for throwing laborers ass in there and remembering that that shirt still might have to come out something i might give him a shot i might if he's a yankee i might give him a shot and let him play a little bit but the glamorous ass shirt is definitely in consideration it's definitely in consideration to make an appearance no doubt about it no doubt about it okay tim tim burns this is an interesting question i think what would you pay for martay simeon correa and trevor story hey let's play let's let's play some uh let's play some salary gm i'm gonna give you guys a heads up i'm not good at it i'm always bad at this crap i hate doing it but let's see let's let's talk let's think about this why not right it's yeah it's interest it's interesting that he let's see i'll say this i'll tell you uh marte i give uh let's see four years 64 million is that low ball i'm lowballing them am i low balling on them four years 16 mil a year that's 16 mil a year starting martial's three four years brings him to 35 is he 31 to 32 i think he's 32 can we let me google that um yeah guys i i hate the whole guessing salary stuff and guessing that's that's the one thing i'm always like doing it please don't ask me that but you know what it's fun right why the hell not we here we're chilling with family might as well pee wee booney merch needs to come out you better believe it marta will get about 20 million justin you might be right he might he might three years 60. uh three years sixty i mean i feel like i feel like he i feel like he can get a fourth year from somebody so you probably have to go four um i wouldn't do if i would never do four years eighty exactly so if you're gonna go four if you're gonna go four years listen i would say this all right all right you're a hard negotiator four year 72 that's 18 millipop take it or leave it guys p pete is awake he's way more shrewd than i am i'm telling you me me i would say i am willing to go about i'm definitely willing to go to 80. i'd say i'd be willing to do you gonna go to five years five years all right if i go to five years then the average annual value is going to be pretty low yeah i'll tell you what i'll tell you right now if i'm going to five years he's only going to get 80 for five um i'd be willing i'd be willing it was a 16 mil a year yeah i'd be willing to do i'd be willing to do 85 over four which is 21 85 over four 21 million a pop that's 21 million and the reason i say i'd be willing to do that is because i feel like the competition is heavy he's gonna get he's gonna get some crazy offers not crazy like 30 million a year but i'm saying like people are going to go 20 million 21 22. some people predict i'm getting 25 a year i think that's a lot but if the if the if the luxury tax threshold does go up the way people are predicting it to then you've got a lot of teams who are going to say [ __ ] it you're 25. i don't see that i can see that take it take it he's good he's he's good i mean he's just my thing is like yes he he's 32 so like we do you do got to be careful because the tools that i personally want to sign him for um one of those is the speed and as he ages that's obviously probably not going to be the same case so 25 seems like a lot to me but i'd be comfortable with 21.25 who was the other one he said trevor story trevor story okay trevor story trevor's story how old is trevor story 29 i think trevor story's 29 i think he's 29. maybe i'm not he was like thought he was like twenty-eight okay so 28 28 of 29 i believe trevor story 20 i'd be willing to go let's see how much this works out to be seven one eighty seven i'll tell you pete you are shrewd bro seven for 180 bro i have nobody he gonna go out there do it all they gonna see me today we ain't changing nothing i tried i tried the thing is that you know why you know why we would make a good team because like you got it you got to have some of that because every now and then somebody would somebody is going to sign for deals like that people don't think it happens but look at the groms contract look at ozzy look at look at the groms contract look at ozzy alvey's contract these guys were severely low bald and they took it you never know you really never know situations and and circumstances change a lot so you never know bro was there any way that trevor story takes a one-year deal for like 22 million i think anyway it's impossible that he expects a one-year deal somewhere to rebound not that he had a bad year but i think if i think it's very possible that if you if you're willing to go up a little bit on that average annual if you're willing to give them so let me ask you this 27. carl just said trevor store is 29 tomorrow what if he's 29 tomorrow 29 tomorrow so let's let's just you know have obviously having fun here i'd give them something wait a second wait a second somebody comes to you tomorrow and says the yankees are signing trevor stored a one-year deal for 27 million do you do it a one-year deal for 27 million that's all that's all that's your only commitment right there one-year deal that's it yeah i do it and he's your short you got it but you have to forget about seeger and everybody else and it's only for one year so you got to look at the situation again next year i do it i do it i do it i do it let me tell you why i do it i mean i'm right there with you i think you got to be nuts not to take a one-year deal from somebody let me tell you let me tell you what it is he's not i'm telling you he's take he's betting on himself and he's doing it on your team for a year and on the biggest stage in the market that's on the biggest thing that's ballsy one so if he if he does if he falls flat on his face and he's terrible then you might still be able to resign him if you need to i'm done i'm done with him after or or if you really need a shorts not that bad yeah get him really cheap then i exactly either i'm done with them after a year or i say hey you didn't have a good year but i'll i'll give you a multi-year deal just to keep you here because we like you yeah right if he kills it well that's great and you can still respond um i can still resign him um a lot of teams are out of the market because they signed all the shortstops from the year prior so i don't i'm not going gonna have too much competition to resign you and i'm gonna have the upper hand that you were with me for a whole year i gave you 27 million you played out of your mind you know what let's talk about a deal where i'm paying you about 25 24 annually long long term yeah i would do it i'd do it in a heartbeat so i think trevor story could consider that if the things take long like the negotiations take long and we get to february and corey seeger and correa are still dilly dallying wasting time guys like story are going to be the ones who pay for that because story's going to be a real tough deal to get because a lot of teams aren't going to pivot to him until correa and sieger are off the board and he probably would want to wait for that too yeah of course because he wants to up his value correct yeah correct you you gotta do that yeah you gotta wait you gotta wait until like you know what i mean like listen tropical fantasy cola doesn't look good in the freezer but when coke and pepsi are off the freezer and that's the only cola there now it starts looking good now i'm not saying trevor's story is tropical fantasy but you know what i'm saying you gotta you gotta let some of the other country club you know what i'm saying you got to let some of the other other options make space so if you're trevor story you can't sign before seeger or korea unless somebody goes out of their mind and do would it be a stroke of brilliance for cashman to just shock the entire industry and throw a deal at trevor story before december 1st that story i would i would i tell you what i would i would reach out to them yeah and i would have a game plan that basically says hey look we're going to give you a ton of money for one year but you're also going to be the best free agent in baseball next year actually i free at the free agent position at shortstop arguably one of them here's here's the interesting thing no johnny johnny you're right country club is banging i like country country club is fire we're not saying country club is delicious no doubt about it od most people are going to take a coke to over country club they don't know too much about country club but you know i do you know dude i say it i say it i say it like this listen it's not unprecedented trevor just did it simeon just did it and trevor and trevor bauer literally was was adamant about that was all he wanted so a lot of players are doing it and the reason they're doing it is because you don't get locked into a situation that you don't want to be in for a long time now trevor story doesn't seem like the guy who's gonna want to like go somewhere and then leave again and things like that it's another thing with anthony rizzo that's why a lot of people are like look like he wants to stay with the yankees or whatever because like he's a he's a creature a habit at this point if rizzo doesn't resign with the yankees a lot of people have predicted that he just goes back to the cubs and just hangs out with them throughout the rebuild which it would be crazy to like let his talent waste away there especially when you know that teams like boston are gonna go after him and stuff like like why would he do that but some players don't want to do that so if trevor story says hey man i want to be in a place long term but right now my market just isn't what i think it should be i'm not getting the value that i think i should be if i'm cashman i'll be like yo listen what do you want 27 30. you want 30 30 for 2022 and then we talk again i do it yeah i do it i do it in a heartbeat and then i'd go and like lock up robbie ray long term because i didn't just give like i'd go and do like other [ __ ] like you know what i mean because i just i got my shorts done for next year i'll figure it out like as it goes away again this is me do i see cashman doing that no cashman is about legacy and things like that whatever me as a gm i'm obviously i obviously would move differently because i'm not worried about a legacy i'm not worried about my ego me i'm worried nobody so i'm not i'm not worried about me i'm not worried about making a mistake no i think look trevor story i could i could see trevor story getting um let's say let's say 24.25 over eight what is that that's 194. it's 194. that's 194. let's say so let's let's make it a round number 195 over eight years that would be 24.3 million a year damn you did you see what is my goodness um i was this the first time i've ever seen this because i don't i don't really go on a lot of these uh sites and look at stuff mlb trade rumors projections they got him only getting 21 million over six years six years 126. trevor story trevor story 21 million over 16 million over six 126 over six years um shout out to mlb trade rumors because i i like the content that they put out and um yeah i think that they're they're good at a lot of things but that projection i disagree with they got marcus simeon has six years 138. guys six years 138 for simeon would be 23 you know simeon's getting at least 25. they got freddie freeman at six years 180. corey seeger he just turned down a better deal than that i think and then correa 10 years 320. and they all have seeger going to the yankees the first time i ever saw that robbie ray they got five years 130. uh 130 by five oh let me see let me see what they got you know okay robby robbie ray lander i want to laugh robbie ray is not is not inaccurate yeah that that doesn't sound oh he would say dirty starling oh my god i just kicked my camera my bed um starlin martay did i fix it yeah it's fixed okay starl and marte they have four years 80 million hey that's what we just basically said we said that so we're on there uh let's see i'm trying to find oh by the way um speaking of free agents that are out there i heard a terrifying rumor today i'm not true it is that the toronto blue jays are interested in chris taylor oh no i believe it so that's just more home run i'm looking for justin did i got justin verlander in here anywhere john gray at four years 56 million if that's the case would be a very nice deal for somebody that's a really really easy get uh john gray is gonna justin berlander at two years and 40 million am i the only one that's a nutcase no it's that pete the thing is it's i mean now i'm believing it's gonna happen but i'm just like i i don't know how i agree listen i agree with you i don't think that he is worth 20 million right now coming off with all the risk and everything but what i was saying in the chat and the other day like the reason i said like i would i would sign him for the two years 40 or like if he won if he was interested in saying and giving me like a little bit less like 19 or whatever then i do it it's because he's gonna get he's gonna get that because he already got offered the qualifying offer and the qualifying offer is already 18.4 so that means that houston who is who let you know george springer walk who's about to lose correa they're still willing to pay verlander almost 20 million dollars right uh the tigers are most likely going to be in on verlander the rangers will probably be in on verlander the mets a team that a lot of people aren't talking about the mets will be in on verlander the yankees will be in on verlander and guess who else la the angels as well as the dodgers will be in on verlander so what happens when that many teams are in on one guy and this is a cy young winner and the price goes up so that 18 all of a sudden starts looking like i don't know like i could probably listen man i could just take this 18. so if you're not offering me at least 20 over two then i might as well just stay where i'm at right i don't even got to uproot myself i just stay here in houston yep i feel like to get them out of houston you're gonna have you're looking at uh two years 40 to start somebody might be stupid enough angels to give him three years 60. they also have a good one here jan gomes two years at 10 million and two out of three guys thinks he goes to the yankees two years 10 million is a joke let me tell you right now if you can get young guns for two years and 10 million dollars you do it yeah you you do it but you also before you sign that deal you see what roberto perez is looking at of course i agree exactly because if yang domes is only looking at a two-year deal worth 10 million i've got one season yeah i wanna know i wanna know what perez's number is because remember what i was saying before it's all about player comparison because perez perez's number is not gonna be far off that and you know what if it's not then i'm going perez no disrespect to gomes he's still he's still a huge upgrade overseas i agree i agree i go right i go perez i go perez um has a lot of experience catching guys like coal and stuff too he hasn't caught cold but i'm saying guys like that he has he has experience so i want to get to this question here tyler pierce says um does ny news have a community discord um we do not uh let me get with killa joe about that cuz killer joe's the tech dude you guys wouldn't believe this and i tell you i am not big in technology or a lot of these other things out there right now we're learning because we got this gigantic launch coming in january so listen fam once you guys once you guys see our new intros and templates and all that oh my god he pete is not going to be able to get away with saying that he's not a tech guy anymore he's getting away with that [ __ ] now because y'all haven't even seen what we have coming for you in january and francis has seen it by the way francis and jim jimmy it ain't twitch baby it ain't twitter ny news it ain't twitch baby it ain't twitch baby listen it ain't twitch nah listen hey no disrespect to twitch we probably we probably could end up putting content there at some point there's gonna be a lot of stuff you never know i mean again like um just harping back on that because we're gonna we're gonna be we're wrapping up here any second we're a little over two hours yeah thank you guys but um you know looking at everything i mean everybody says why do i talk about january so i'm gonna i'll break it down for you why do you know we we've put a ton ny news started in 2005. so i don't think people really understand that so i was i was a much younger person than when felix started ny news and me and my arguably my best friend of my life growing up and for since since o5 we actually met each other from through the yankees and we decided to i decided to start working on that with him and writing articles and things like that and putting information out there so we've always had these plans but we also throughout life had different aspirations you know what i mean things change paths change and um at the end of the day you know we're all back here now pushing hard at this and we got an amazing team and just to let you guys know we have an even more amazing team coming on board starting in january and the reason why i'm so hype about it is because in my heart i truly believe that there is nobody else doing what we're about to provide yankee fans in january i truly believe that there is no one else that is doing it not even the yes network is giving you guys multiple different opinions multiple different angles you're going to have about four podcasts to watch weekly that's not even including pre-games and post games live like we're doing now that's not including round tables that's not including regular live chat that's not including regular videos from more than just me so you're getting many more opinions ny news tv is going to be absolutely amazing and the different the different opinions thing is big guys like it's huge one of my knocks one of my knocks on i'm not gonna call people out by name out of generosity since it's sunday but one of my knocks on some of the other you know content creators out there in yankee land is that there's just a lot of uh agreeable opinions on the same panels and things like that and i think it's good when you could debate certain things like i think i think it's good like to have different opinions have people up there i was listening to this podcast uh recently um and i'm not gonna name which one it is because they're actually coming on board with us and i don't want to drop out i don't want to let any cat out of the bag but i was listening to one of these podcasts and they were saying like some takes like about correa and secret things or whatever and i was like wow i really disagree with these guys but i was like i love i love that i disagree with them i like that i disagree with them because they were providing like different angles different insight that maybe i don't subscribe to but it was good to think about that for a little while like so these the people who think this way this is why they think this way it was nice to hear that but you don't get that if everybody just agrees with everybody need a little bit of debate neither hold on to end it with a bang laboratories will win a gold i will bet can we can we do something can we do something live on the air can we do something live on the air oh can everybody get me this is recorded so my side is covered i will right now li yanking i'll tell you right now give you my word 250

Future Yankee? Corey Seager, Carlos Correa? THE ANSWER @SimonettiSource

Transcript

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for nyy news the offseason is here you guys know and man oh man shortstop is the position that everybody's talking about from your beat writers to your mainstream reporters to your youtube content creators to fans to bandwagon fans and right smack dab in the middle of that are our beloved new york yankees who are they gonna go for you know the mainstream guys say it is correa or it's seeger that is what everybody believes right now so i'm not gonna talk much about corey seeger today because i definitely want to hit on carlos correa and i also want to hit on a uh rumor so to say or news i have been told by three different people now and you know well we'll get to that towards the end let's right now focus on carlos correa and and a little bit i'll start off with corey seeger a little bit we know the pluses on corey seeger right world series champion that's left-handed makes a lot of contact overall a good player we know he's not the greatest defender at shortstop the yankees believe they could move him over to third base he could play well there and um you know you don't want that middle infield defense of being labor torres and corey seeger it's not gonna be the best up the middle in baseball no doubt about that but again he got the accolades right he got the world series title he seems like he's a winner he's a good ball player good teammate all those good things we hear about corey seeger carlos correa and by the way before i jump any further on that one i'd be happy with seeger i wouldn't be upset about him most uh i i believe passing rosenthal only i think they all believe that seeger sherman is going to be a yankee they feel like that's the guy they eventually go for carlos correa i like the player i love the player i tell you off the bat one of the things i love most about carlos correa is he's edgy he has a pearl he has an attitude the yankees need a little edginess i talked about it when i said about them getting robbie ray he's a bulldog he'll go out there go after you if he needs to talk a little bit if he has to you know the yankees need that type of edge aaron judge you know isn't really hated by other people he's not really the enemy he tried to do something sometimes with the boombox and all that didn't really pay off or work out too well but aaron judge doesn't come across at all as the enemy you know he doesn't he doesn't have that persona about him now correa on the other hand people are going to hate him you know what i mean and if he's on the yankees they're going to hate us they're going to hate us they're going to hate that we got this guy and i know fans right away are going to bring up well he cheated and the team cheated and the astros astros astros did this correa said that you know correa's had some comments about derek jeter recently on whatever it was saying that you know he didn't deserve those gold gloves and things like that but you know brian cashman grace with him you know brian cashman had a lot of things to say about jeter towards the end of his career during those negotiations so i mean hey it is what it is i mean people could say what they want they can have their opinions um but we know what correa does good right he's a great defensive shortstop uh platinum gold glove winner platinum glove winner excuse me uh terrific overall uh does everything well in the field flashy does it all makes the easy plays makes the hard plays he's the best defensive shortstop of the crop that's available great arm great glove again everything there checks out a plus uh great bat big postseason hitter we know that we've seen that time and time again edgy to me is a pro some people see it as a con i see it as a major pro footage ball club cons i guess kind of what you hear i guess the fan a lot of the fan base uh you know they said aaron judge doesn't want him here and come on brian cashman isn't doing his job if that's even in his consideration gotta improve the ball club simple as that so for me as i said before call up with uh with corey seeger i like him a lot i also like corey uh i also like carlos um carlos correa no problem with either one of those guys signing with the yankees i have no problem at all we know it's going to take a lot of money most people project 300 plus for the both of them and we'll see those negotiations go uh from what i hear i've had a lot of people tell me that they feel that it is also gonna be correa or seeger that those are the two yankees are truly going after hard now i talk to on a weekly basis when i started i was about three now it's about five or six guys who who i trust who have given me good information there's three of them who i i truly trust one of them's a newer one who is um who's a friend who's really good he knows his basically uh been there and done that too so three of these people have told me this three of them have flat out told me hal steinberger is not gonna sign another 300 million dollar deal we'll see where that goes but i've had three people tell me the same exact thing he will not sign a 300 plus million dollar contract knowing that he wants aaron judges to stay a yankee he wants aaron judge to stay a yankee and he's not going to lock somebody in for 300 plus million dollars those three other people have also told me do not believe the whole idea that the yankees have soured on trevor's story they told me all three of them said they think that is the short stop the yankees actually land trevor story because again i don't like to get into the estimations of money and all that i just never really liked that stuff of guessing that um but it's very much expected that story is going to get a lot less than seeger or correa so the yankees mindset there could be maybe we can upgrade center field with a martay maybe we can upgrade first base you know maybe we can do some different things with saving a little bit of money or not going as crazy as we expected but really putting extra production into the into the batting order that's not necessarily trade driven would you you know got your play with that also afterwards but i've heard that from three different people and these are three good people these are three people that that know their that have been right many times before so we'll see what happens but again the other people i talked to seemed to fall in line with your rosenthals and those guys that said they fully expect the yankees to go to possibly payrolls 260 70 80 maybe even 90. so you know everybody i talked to personally to on dms they asked me oh pete what are they gonna do what are they gonna do i tell everybody the same thing there's a ton of conflicting stuff out there right now there's a ton of it i can give you what i think could happen but there's a ton of conflicting things out there right now what that just tells me is that the yankees have their hands all over the place right now they're trying to figure out what would be the best fit they're trying to figure out how the off season goes if brian cashman is really doing his job guys that's the way to go about it right now there's a lot of changes that need to be made in this club and if you're just focusing hard on one or two guys it's not usually what gm's do anyway but he needs to have his cards on the table and he also needs to have a really good template with some with some really good ideas on it of uh twists and turns that can happen in this offseason we know teams like detroit are gonna be you know spending some money we know texas are to be spending some money so it really depends on how many guys you know want to win or want the money more and it's never going to be a i don't think it'll ever be a gigantic gap of a difference but you know is it possible that seeger signs for under 300 maybe correa i don't see so as much i think somebody's gonna offer him that maybe not who knows uh story definitely he's gonna sign under 300 that we know it might sign under 200 or probably will i think most estimations have him signing under 200 million so it depends it depends it's a very interesting time for the yankees i do know that there's definitely interest in correa we know to this interest in seeger and you don't got to take my word for that take the mainstream guys out there if you want to believe them that's fine and again if you hear me saying don't count out trevor's story that is me telling you guys what i've been told and there's not a lot of mainstream guys out there saying they're saying that they have soured on them i'm hearing that it's not necessarily true so we'll see what happens on the market with story but i'll tell you what depending on what else they do i wouldn't mind story too much very good defender plays a lot not usually out due to injury and things of that nature of you guys one of the stats i brought up earlier about carlos correa is and this is not me you know knocking him or saying uh don't go after him a lot of yankee fans when they talk about aaron judging an extension they like to say well we don't know if that's the best idea because he's injury prone and he's this and he's that since 2017 aaron judges played 45 i mean i messed that up didn't i 45 more games than carlos correa has since 2017 once judge became a regular he has played 45 more games than carlos correa so that's an interesting stat because you don't hear that much about carlos correa that he's injured a lot and and things of that nature you don't really hear about that a lot um you do hear about it a bit with corey seeger but um you don't hear much about carlos correa but he's you know he's had his his fair share over there so you know um um for the people saying that the yankee fans saying that specifically you know hold your horses a little bit guys hold your horses a little bit so overall guys i wouldn't mind any one of those three i'm just telling you what i'm here to say is don't count out a deal for trevor story don't be upset if the yankees don't get one of those top two there's a lot of ways this offseason could go that's why it's so interesting that's why you got so much conflicting reports out there but i'll tell you what don't be shocked when you hear that the yankees have met with his agents or there's been conversation there or a rumor starts up trevor story the yankees tried to trade for him remember at the deadline uh the rockies played it horribly we know that they wanted too much from everybody they end up not trading them at all just a horrible job by the rockies but the yankees were one of the last remaining teams in there trying to get trevor story so and then they obviously turn to anthony rizzo and brings them over so it'll be very interesting to see again great options out there love the edge that court that uh that carlos correa could bring to this club i think it's very needed and and we know who corey seeger is we know the type of bat what that would do to this yankee lineup and how much more dynamic it would make it any of these guys makes the yankees offense better one we know that uh the pros usually really outweigh the cons for all of these guys in my opinion especially upgrading what our shortstop has been so that would be a major upgrade either way so guys again in the comment section below let me know what you think about all this all the news that i'm putting out there right now about story the just the idea overall who you would want out of those three for right now correa seeger and story and think about money too you know think think of you being in the seat there what you would do would it open up a chance for the yankees if they got a guy like trevor story to maybe get robbie ray also to maybe get sterling martay think about the things that can open up potential trades too uh what it could do for the yank so let me know again in the comments below and if you guys have not subscribed please go ahead and do so put the notifications on so you never miss an ny news video again guys i am pizza minetty for the one the only nyy news i will talk to you guys again very very soon thank you tell me

Bryan Reynolds In CF? The Yearly Rumor Is Back! @SimonettiSource

Transcript

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for nyy news the off season daily daily has something going on today is a player that you guys if you are a regular subscriber got so many new subscribers so thank you guys so much but if you have been a regular or if you've watched me and never subscribed and you still don't and hopefully you do but if you have watched me for a long time you're going to be familiar with this name because i've told you guys the yankees have had interest before now it's being confirmed again by a lot of the mainstream guys um brian reynolds pittsburgh pirates it's becoming a daily rumor and if they don't get him now it'll continue to be a daily rumor until he's traded because the one thing we know for a fact with pittsburgh is this guy is an elite ball player he's young he's eventually gonna come due and he'll be moved whether it's at arbitration or before that he'll be moved uh when it gets to that time it's the pittsburgh pirates they're not gonna hold on to a superstar unless they somehow lock him up early but eventually brian reynolds will be traded so it's either gonna be a constant story for years to come or it's gonna be something that pops off now and it could make some sense so for the fans first of all who do not know who brian reynolds is pittsburgh pirates center fielder young 26 years old will be 27 next year on the season had a six war had a career high with 24 homers 302 average uh eight triples 20 again 24 home runs 90 rbis five stolen bases 75 walks on base percentage 390 batting average 302 as i said slugging 522 ops 912. this is a terrific ball player 35 doubles again good center fielder also just uh 2022 projection has him again having a solid year uh that's with the pirates so again with the team like the yankees it would be very interesting to see how those projections would change i'm definitely we're bad at the top of the order uh would be tremendous but let me go ahead and just kind of level set with you guys here i know a lot of good people in pittsburgh um it's actually one of the teams where if again you guys have paid attention to me and have watched me for a while you would know i always have good information on pittsburgh whether it comes back to the time of the cold trade whether it's jamison tyone um whatever it may be when the yankees are dealing with pittsburgh um just as recently as last year when clay holmes i was the probably one of the only guys saying everybody hold on a second i got some great information on who this guy is and we saw he was actually elite and that's what i was told when they got him like it was oh pete you know hold up a second you guys actually got a pitcher who is really really good and the only reason why i got that information is to have really good connections out there with guys in pittsburgh who know the team see the team watch the team are very familiar with the way they go about their business so one of the things i've heard about today when i asked about it was quite simple they'll listen the pirates will listen if a team comes to the table and blows them away and they know that they can replace reynolds and then add immediately within the next one to two years because if you guys don't know the pirates people hear the pirates and are just like uh it's the pirates who cares no no no no no wait a second the pirates have legitimate players coming up they got cruz at short gonzalez coming up at second base could play third i believe also um again you know about uh keep ryan hayes already they got uh davis who's one of the they just drafted as a catcher is going to be ready soon then i mean they got a lot of swaggerties another guy heads another guy in the outfield uh quinn priester um former yankee contreras uh terrage i think his name is i forgot his last name but he's another starting pitching prospect um something like that his name is i forget how to say his name but point is they got a lot of good going for them when it comes to guys coming up um and a lot of those guys are very very close so you're looking at within 2022 to 2023 these guys are going to be ready so when you look at a trade like this you look at it from the pirates perspective we don't have to trade brian reynolds we have no reason to trade we might be able to win with him at least become contenders with him and they could that's not a joke that's not me being that's not be you know joking about this the pirates have a chance to be a contender in the next two to three years no doubt about it um if they get lucky and these guys come up and perform next year 2023 they could fight and be a much better club uh i think the main 2024 2025 potentially they could they could really be a very very good squad so looking at that at the pirates point of view okay we'll consider it we know some clubs got great farm systems one of the clubs that are also interested in rentals per reports i can't really speak for other clubs but perta reports of the mainstream guys are the mariners the mariner's got a ton of prospects one of the best systems in the game so if the mariners approach them and go well we'll give you this this this this and that one three four seven and eight on our pool or maybe a guy that's already at the level you guys like you know we can we can talk about that the one good thing that the yankees also do have because i'm not a mariners channel of course i'm gonna speak on what the yankees trade would have to be is if you could convince the pirates and say to them well we're getting one of your major leaguers i would like to add stallings in on that but i'll get i'll get to that later i would like to give you all multiple major leaguers for your one major leaguer and they're also controllable what that could mean is first of all one of your top guys gotta be in there and i'm almost gonna hold out peraza on this deal because i think that's an olsen thing and the yankees can still build on that but just speaking of this so if i add peraza forget the olsen stuff for now this is just a video based on what it could take right now to get reynolds if if if these are all ifs because again guys you know i don't like doing all the trade stuff but what you're looking at is saying okay one of our best prospects is jason dominguez we'll entertain that well entertain dominguez you guys like them cool but how i'm going to try to convince you of this deal is that dominguez isn't ready so he's not going to help that pool of where you guys think you contend soon you're looking at 2024 2025 that'd be ready which could actually be a great time for your organization what we will do is supply you right now with guys who are already close to being ready very very close estevan floriel could immediately take over in center field luis heal could immediately jump into the rotation davy garcia could immediately jump into a rotation or a bullpen clark schmidt the same thing and these are still top prospects but then we got prospects luis medina oswald peraza they already got a lot set up on the infield so i don't know how interested they would be in a guy like peraz i'm sure he still would be but medina heal um oswaldo cabrera could potentially be a starter this year um everson pierre could also be an outfielder very very close to being ready so the point here is if you can convince them to say look we can actually supply you with two to three cost-effective guys at the major league level right now or within next year that you can build upon if that's something that's attractive to the pirates which if i were to pirates it would be because if i could say okay i'll trade reynolds i already have his replacement in center field with estevan floreal who may hit for more power he pro he'll bat less he's not the same player but he could supply us with a lot of power he could also surprise everybody and be very good as i believe he will become we know his glove is great in center field we know he has an arm we know he can run so he's going to steal us more bases than reynolds does he could potentially for more power yeah he's gonna strike out more yeah he's gonna bat lower but we're not contending next year this kid may turn into a really good ball player we know jason dominguez is down the line we know what that talent looks like that's a blue chip prospect louise heal fits into our rotation very nice now at rusny contreras maybe keller gets it going finally brutabaker maybe we got something a little something going on there quinn priester isn't far away i like the sound of that i like the sound of that oswaldo cabrera could play all over maybe he's almost ready to go so a lot of good there a lot of ways you could make it make sense for the pirates i still believe the more realistic guy so francis actually sent me this india he's like pete would you give up the top top guys if they added stallings also so he's talking about volpe and everybody else i'm like whoa that's a tough one with if i entertain that you must have the other guys involved also and what i mean by that is you gotta know you're signing seeger you gotta know you're getting robbie ray because if you dump the farm you gotta know that team you're putting out there is like unheard of it would have to be a team that's like fam if these guys stay healthy not even aaron boone could make this team bad like it's that type of thing like if you added reynolds seeger stallings ray maybe maybe another pitcher maybe olson i don't know how you do it but if you do some astronomical buxton maybe you do some astronomical thing then then you could maybe empty the farm a little bit but in reality to sum up this video i don't think it happens i don't think reynolds is traded i think if he is it would be amazing if the yankees get him it's gonna cost a lot it's going to hurt but get stallings too then if that's ever the case you know add up on both positions yankees can't make all these trades and and keep gary sanchez around so you guys have been amazing by the way views are through the roof subscribers are through the roof guys we had a goal like i said of 6 000 subscribers by january 1st we're already at over 5700 we're about 290 something away from breaking that goal already we might have to increase that goal uh come december so

Gleyber Torres On The Move? DON'T BE SHOCKED @SimonettiSource

Transcript

hey everybody what is going on pete simonetti here for ny news i know we did a live chat yesterday but guys news is hot this off season already and i gotta talk about it so i had a good conversation this morning with somebody very much in the know of the yankees thinking and the great thing i got about this because you guys know i haven't i wouldn't say i've been negative but i've been down on the talk and we're gonna do this and we got latitude and all these other things that brian cashman says i'm all about action this team we know they got to make changes we saw the deadline they recognized the righties were too much they brought some lefties in there's hope here that there may be significant changes i'm telling you this right now because i am told that brian cashman's approach this year is very different in the regard right now i don't know much about the money side we'll take him at his word for that we'll see where that goes but again even the way he said that yesterday could really go anyway but i am told the table is is is empty the prospect pool is to the side he opens the bag up lifts it up and pours them all on the table and goes let's play games here let's play ball that's what i'm told including some other pieces the man this video is about briefly labor taurus i'm told by my best guy don't be shocked if gleber taurus is moved his reasoning is he's the guy still that a lot of teams want and brian cashman isn't backing down from that there has been no har line drawn in the sand that says glaber's untouchable we're not doing it now again labor may not be moved and cashmere will come out and say you know he's an untouchable we like him we want to do this but my understanding is for some of the big names out there your olsons whatever could tell martes maybe maybe there's other trades out there that present itself for starting pitching miami labor tours wouldn't necessarily hinder a deal now would the yankees do labor plus multiple top prospects i don't know i i don't know if they would do that my understanding is everyone is on the table the one name you hear a lot about that isn't is what we talked about yesterday that's anthony volpe yankees really love this kid because they feel like he's the next jeter and they feel like he's very capable of moving to third or second base if he really needs to they do feel his body's getting bigger so he's gonna hit for more power and that may hinder his defense a little bit at short but they love him there so here's a tweet i put out today and this is basically regarding this so i wanted to make this video because i want to give a little meat to what uh a short tweet says i said glaber is not an untouchable not at all don't be surprised if he has moved in a major as a major part in the trade so that has been brought up to me now by just to put it bluntly for you guys somebody who knows his if he said it it's legit and most of the stuff that i put out quickly and to talk about i'll do it in confidence if i'm told by that person i always tell you guys this if i'm told by a few others i talk to i want to get it confirmed by somebody else then i'll put information out but don't be shocked if glebe taurus is moved now some of you may sit back and go but pete why he's controllable isn't that kind of what the yankees want in a way yes but remember many ways the yankees go this offseason really determines how their infield's going to look let's play a game yankees trade for olsen let's say gleber's not part of that deal let me tell you why he probably should be trade for olsen they signed corey seeger and now you're looking around going um we also you know gave a lot of money and years to dj lemayo we know he was hurt last year defense wasn't bad wherever he played really he's best at second base we know that but he was injured we got an excuse for him we'll see how he does when he's healthy but we kind of know who this guy is so what do we do with him he's the least value of dj lemayo is moving him off second base you drop his value to your own club third base first of all he's not great great defensively there he's good he's passable but he's not dj lemayo at second base who's arguably one of the best second base defenders in the league and at first base i've been on record of saying i think he'd do good i think it would be his other best position second or first i think is our best position but second by far so you brought in seeger who's not great defensively we know that not terrible he's average maybe he's slightly above slightly below however you feel however you see the eye test and then of course analytic numbers however you want to look at those but the best infield at that moment would be geo back at third or you know you got kyle seeger out there who's a good third baseman also another lefty there's a lot of things you could do there but let's just say let's just go with geo geo at third see your short second base you got glabor there first base you got olsen your middle of the order of the line of the of the field is not good now replace that and say you got geo seeger dj and olsen boy so this is big news because look if the yankees recognize something to that level i'm on record i'm on record you guys know this i'm on record i've said it the yankees come out there they dump gary sanchez i am getting hyped for this offseason but if they keep the same guys around i'm not getting hyped i got a feeling to be one or two and that's it and that's not enough i've been saying that but it's good to know that cashman is very willing to wheel and deal and he's very willing to deal guys that he acquired we know what cashman's ego is that is legit anybody would tell you that anybody would tell you cashman's ego gets in the way of what he does we know he trades with a lot of the same teams good news for the yankees fans is olson is one of them olsen is one of them sorry i'm getting i'm getting so many messages today it's crazy i love this time of year i live for this i live for this um but olsen is one of them i mean oakland is one of them and olsen's the guy we want don't be shocked cashman goes out there and gets olsen and a starting pitcher because if you're looking at a deal that could possibly include glaber voigt and then multiple prospects you're also beating up you know killing two birds with one stone there you're getting a legitimate legitimate first baseman only makes about 8 million and a starting pitching starting pitcher to go into your rotation that i i on record also saying i think you need to then you got money to play with then you got seeger maybe correa maybe a center fielder maybe starlin marte in a three-year deal two years in an option i don't know higher aav you also got the potential of an extension of aaron judge oh here we go the best yankee infield has dj lemayo at second base can't deny that there's no way no way and no form of denying that the best yankee infield is digital mayor second base so without you know going any further i'm gonna get back to doing what i do i'll get videos will come immediately if there's information but the news i have right now is that brian cashman the war room for brian cashman has all of his soldiers on the field that may be a little hesitant with one guy and that's volpe they don't want to move but my understanding is everybody including glaber torres is on the table gleber torres could be on the move that will be very very interesting to see if it plays out that way but it's good to know that early talks have not stopped because of certain names being mentioned that alone is very very important stay tuned guys more to tell come

Yankees Interested in Matt Olson, Eric Chavez On Coaching Staff: Rumors @SimonettiSource

Carlos Correa, Luis Castillo, Matt Olson, Justin Verlander. @_NYYNEWS Discussing JAM PACKED Hot Stove

Transcript

yo new york fans yet again it is felix from nynews.com like always welcome yankees fans is that time of the year congratulations to the atlanta braves i know i'm late but um i haven't uploaded a video since they won the world series and it's amazing they want it without utilizing a whole bunch of players that they don't for an example like johan carmago who is a sleeper might i add a switch hitter third baseman utility infielder that the braves barely utilize and they did it without acuna either so congratulations to the atlanta braves it doesn't matter well it doesn't matter how many games you win in the regular season but it matters when you get hot and get on a roll the braves certainly proved that and so did the uh washington nationals in 2019 so again it's that time of the year again the hot stove that time of the year where yankees fans in particular are on the edge of their seats waiting for the yankees to act like the yankees and you know sign everybody and their mother if you ask me that's what's going to happen you have a whole bunch of disgruntled fans out there and what better way to make a splash and let's say sign a carlos correa i don't think the yankees are going to sign seeger i think they're going to sign correa to be honest with you guys yes uh seeger is a left-handed bat but carlos correa has the numbers when it counts his post season numbers are incredible and uh the houston astros uh insulted him i mean you know 30 million dollars per year but the years weren't there it's not that insulting when we're talking about money and we're just regular people not making that kind of money but it's pretty insulting when you offer a guy in like calls correa that kind of contract after what he did for your franchise you could call him like a franchise player as well so uh yeah uh carl's career is not resigning with the astros also for an example you got guys in the minor leagues like volpe peraza waiting for their shot volpe has a lot of uh fans out there rightfully so he's been performing he's basically the best uh farmhand that the yankees have and if you sign a guy like uh calls correa he has the body frame to move over to third base and again you guys know that i would love the idea of carlos correa on his team i've been saying it for over three years now when it was the unpopular thing to say and plus i like it even more because it triggers these um screw correct he's a cheater i don't want him on my team he bit the yankees by cheating you know it triggers those kinds of fans but um you know the astros have reached the world series over and over again after that scandal so and carlos correa's numbers are still there when it counts the postseason and you could say he's a semi uh all-star in the regular season i'm not saying they didn't cheat but obviously carlos correa's numbers weren't that affected that much you know like his arm his defense that guy has a cannon for an arm he's just clutch he has the uh the attitude of a player that i want on this specific team see i've been complaining a lot that this team is soft they need a boater like carlos correa simple as that so moving along there's talk out there that the yankees or i haven't heard this specifically that the yankees would be interested in signing a verlander you see back in 2017 i took a lot of flank when it came to the yankees training for sunny gray or the uh talk that they wanted to trade for sunny grey was between vern lander and gray and a whole bunch of people are pushing sunny gray to the bronx even the new big newspapers i'll give credit to the yes network they were actually pushing for a justin berlander but some long story put short i told my boy pete i said hey the team that trains for vern lander they're going to be your 2017 world series champions and bam it happened i was 100 pushing for the yankees to trade for verlander but if you ask me today do i like to see verlander as a yankee i would have to tell you no you see this is going to rum some people the wrong way but i'm going to be 100 real the 2022 season is going to be an experiment for garrett cole as we saw his numbers get wacky after uh sticky substances being banned there's been talk in the past that justin bernlander is that same kind of picture that he needs help with the grip gripping the baseball so i would not like a 39 38 year old joining the yankees when i know he's that same kind of picture and i'm not trying to bash garrett cole i'm not just trying to experiment with two guys and knowing that justin verlander is an all-star type picture imagine if he implosion in new york this guy's just going to get destroyed so yeah in 2021 and juan used felix is now passing on justin rolander after being a fanboy of his back in 2017. moving along luis castillo and i'm going to tell you this i'm going to take credit for sparking that rumor that got so big that the rest gm had to come out and say uh luis castillo is not on a trade market i'll take credit for that i've made numerous videos about louise castillo but he's another one he had a weird finish as well he finished about one eight and 16 or something like that but his numbers were somewhat there was he another picture affected by the sticky substance ban who knows there's a lot of talk that it's going to be added or whatever taken out of the negotiations the cba where they're going to put a better grip on the baseball i don't know but it seems to me these uh power pictures you know curveball pictures were basically destroyed by uh this band so who knows if they uh allow these pictures to somewhat get a better grip on the baseball with these negotiations we we don't even know if there's going to be a season in 2022 who knows but if you ask me if luis castillo's out there i've made plenty of videos about him i always wanted him as a yankee but something tells me that brian cashman is not that smart and he's going to pass on him hey maybe he could prove me wrong but brian cashman his credibility with me has gone down the drain for obvious reasons and when i say me i mean mostly the yankees fans out there yes luis castillo is available confirmed by the reds themselves let's see now moving along to the first base situation do you resign rizzo do you make a trade with the half linux for an olson or do you move dj la mayhew who's going to be a yankee for seasons to come do you move him to first base permanently you see here's my take i had this opinion a few weeks ago you trade glamour torres you make that train with the oakland a's you sign the calls correa and boom that's your uh 2022 infield uh matt austin dj lemay who at second base carlos correa at shortstop and geo urchella at third it's that simple play dj lemay here in his natural position you have a chip and taurus you could basically include them in the package for any player out there and you know matt austin would fit perfectly in the bronx that swing would dominate in the bronx and he's on the trade market so yeah i would do it uh nice knowing you glabor wrapping this up here's the time here's the players that i wouldn't like the yankees to obtain just wrapping it up from what i was saying earlier matt olson carlos correa and maybe a luis castillo all these players one of these players you get via free agency two of these players to get retreat and oh yeah i just reminded myself of this that luis rojas the former manager of the mets is potentially going to join the new york yankees as a third base coach or whatever and a lot of yankees fans hated that idea or hate that idea why it is a positive in my opinion bringing in a dominican coach are these guys forgetting about tony pena luis rojas comes from a baseball family do you guys forget who his father is so hell yeah i like that idea bring him over here he's going to help a lot of latin players on this ball club i'm not saying the yankees don't have latino coaches like mendoza but this guy there's a whole bunch of dominicans playing for you guys so yes make it happen it's close to happening but yes make it happen i know there's a lot of players that are left out if you guys want to uh leave your opinions we have a new segment called ny news mic pass and the information to submit your audio was left on there hey if you guys disagree with me or need to chime in some more send me your audios so again leave your opinions in the comment section below and like always this has been felix from nynews.com share like and subscribe and i will check you out next time friends

Transcript

innovative yup we designated spit it's time that you know we designated yup we innovative uncle stevie uncle stevie making deals on black friday and he wasn't taking bargains he wasn't taking bargains any part of the day he's uncle steve um that should be like the startup to uh to a met show but unfortunately um i gotta start with uncle halstein bruno this is uncle stevie yesterday this is uncle stevie yesterday he woke up and chose violence he said listen oh shoot he said steven match what you want to do okay call up call up mark hannah call him up i thought that was the didn't uh didn't big pun have a version when he was like [ __ ] on the whole industry that's exactly what he just did that's exactly oh man listen uncle steve he did he said all right that was funny though because you know that was like that was like a legit i'm pissed off type thing i told felix felix messing me about i say yo this man was making deals sitting on a love seat and cracking walnuts just like yeah yeah close the deal just cracking another wall man who you getting marta that's what he wants i do it yeah these people i saw people giving uh billy eppler some credit for some of these deals and i'm not trying to billy i'm not trying to i'm not trying to shade epler at all but let me tell you something your man just got here yo man he just got here he says sir what we doing today he goes we got three deals we're closed already he's just he's just he's just gonna make the call okay cool he gave billy the day off yeah facts he said bill bill black friday go with your family get some things done just start tomorrow don't worry we'll have a couple of things done for you you don't got to come in you get credit for it i started laughing so hard i got hiccups let me get my water making some headlines out there right they get um they get kana they get rosario and then of course they get the the big one at the end of the day is of course starla marte and of course yeah this is not nym news this is ny news so at the end of the day we're gonna you we're gonna talk about our yankees and look first and foremost i'll just say this not a significant impact on the yankees i get it because you know we still have things we can do but man friends i tell you man i am utterly in a way shocked by a lot of the reaction from yankee fans oh you came to marty the people the people like defending how bad of a signing all of a sudden marty would have been who would have given that money and this and that he got four years about 19 million a year yeah he got under 20 million a season yep not even 20. for for the next four seasons i laughed about this on the live chat i don't want to keep laughing again do you know that there was yankee fans that actually said that aaron hicks is better it's a better point there's of going out there and getting them you have you have yankee people out there posting videos of aaron hicks making sliding catches in center field and dominic and winley when he looked like trash doing it he looked terrible he looked terrible tell you guys right now he took a horrible route to that ball horrible um and ninety percent of it ninety percent of the the route was the the fact that he was moving ridiculously slow but you know who he looks like you wanna laugh i'm not joking you remember when bernie williams came back to play into wbc oh god and everybody looked at it was like bernie you can't do this fam they're like bernie no bernie we don't want to see you like a man who didn't belong in that field and you could tell i mean people say oh well you know you know maybe out of shape that's why he's out there he's trying to get back listen listen guys what was he doing make all the excuses you want i'm not i'm not here this is not about bashing aaron hicks right this is not about bashing aaron hicks this is about bashing the idiot fans who were in my mentions telling me that aaron hicks is equivalent to starling marte so we don't have to spend on a starling marte because we already have him basically what where who and where does aaron hicks match like the speed did you see what he looked like catching that ball you know come on bro mind you i'm actually sitting here saying if aaron hicks is on center field okay but just have a good backup phone i'm i'm on record saying that so i'm not somebody who's like i hate aaron hicks i would trade him if i could mine 100 i'm just cracking up truly that fans are actually even uttering the words that marty isn't a better and then they're talking about his age do you see the way this dude is built no some of them that's what i'm saying that i had people in my mentions telling me oh yeah a 33 year old center fielder is not the answer is it what was it was a 32 year old uh utility infielder the answer last year because we gave him six years and signed him dj the mayhew and we were all very happy that we resigned the mayhew we were all very happy that uncle stevie didn't swoop in and steal the mayhew so don't tell me a year later you're saying nah we don't need and it's a shorter deal and you guys are talking all this garbage and [ __ ] about the marte deal you know marta deal martay's deal ends a year earlier than le mayhew does yeah we're paying we're paying the mayhew a year and him and lemay who are the same age and we're paying dj a year later then the mets are going to be paying starling marta the deal is a good freaking deal the deal's a good freaking deal it's an economical deal for him he's making he's getting paid he's getting good money but it doesn't that's not a back breaker contract for a team not in new york for the yankees not a new you're the problem what what organization are we that's the only issue here we've become the kansas city yankees according to the fans they're talking about oh no we can't spend that kind of we can't afford that what and i'm a circle i'm a circle back to marte but the other thing i want to say make no mistake about this because i feel like some people got it confused somewhere i saw it in the mentions on on my tweet i saw it in the mentions on your tweet because we both had a similar tweets that kind of blew up and some people don't seem to get it they think that we're we're upset about all of the moves that the mets made no and we feel like and we and we're like oh no we wanted all of those guys and the mets stole all of those guys no no no no no no no no no no they just want to stupid read into what we're saying we were speaking like i was speaking specifically about starling marty and so was pete mark canna i came out and said he i think he was a great signing for the meds i think all the signings were good for the mets all of them were good for the match all of them were looking escobar listen escobar canna two great signings for the men's if the yankees would have signed either canna or escobar i would have been like what are we doing like i don't i don't get it like right escobar it's like we already got dj and i like dj better i think he's a better version of that are we trading geo then he's taken over exactly i would have been like what's happening here because that score play escobar plays second and third you know he's a i'm like yeah he's a good clubhouse guy but i'm like yeah is that what like i would have been confused if the yankees weren't assigned to i agree so no i wasn't i didn't feel any kind of way that the mets got him other than happy for the mets fans i was like that's a good pick up congrats mark canna same thing oh yeah we do need that we do need outfield but ken is not the kind of outfielder that we need so when they signed him i was like oh i see what they're doing i was like that's good for them because they need that they need that and they're gonna need that so i was like okay yeah ken a great pickup had a decent year in oakland and i mean the way he hits over there is kind you got to kind of take with a grain of salt because he hit it he did it in such a shitty ballpark that it's like put him in a put him in a ballpark that plays even half a little bit more friendly to hitters and he's probably going to put up a lot better numbers so i think again can a good deal shouts out to the mess for those two very good deal for the mets what we were talking about though was only starling martin it was only him he was the only player that the mets and the yankees together were going after along with a slew of other teams the phillies were in our hearts the marlins the marlins made a big push for martay which now i mean side sidebar or whatever but now you know now they're saying that they shifted after losing out on marta they shifted to castellanos that's going to be interesting because there's a lot of teams that want that want nikki stixx and if the marlins come in and swoop him up guess whose market improves even better which is what boris has been saying all along comforto he starts to look way way more attractive with marty and nikki sticks off the ball you said he's gonna get money he's gonna get it yeah because i and the reason i predicted it to my whole basis behind that was boris is gonna tell him don't don't get scared we're gonna have to be patient and you're gonna have to watch some guys get signed ahead of you but i'm gonna get you the money but don't don't get finicky don't get afraid because you're gonna see some guys go and you're gonna start thinking but dang is there gonna be a place for me is it gonna pace for you and there's definitely gonna be a place for you just be patient and i'm it's looking like it's gonna pay off starling got a great deal nikki stixx is gonna probably get a decent deal because the marlins apparently the marlins apparently were willing to go pretty close to what marta got from the mets yep right yep so i mean i would imagine they'll go just they went right up there they were close they were close they were close right yeah that's what was that that was that was that was what was being reported today if i'm if i'm not mistaken now so i i would imagine that for castellanos they're gonna go about the same they're gonna go about the same um length if not a little more costianas is 29 so he's younger you could give him more years if that's what he's looking for give him the money and miami has they got the paper why not and you guys they going come on you're more willing to go more years if you have to exactly because you can give them an off day in the in the outfield and have them you know dh for you a little bit split time over there so if he does end up going to the marlins who some people had them in the outfield market but not a lot of the top insiders had the marlins going and making a splash in the outfield market like i'm like a marte or a castellanos when a team like that does something like that it really shifts the market and that's why boris has been saying he's like no no he's like uh comforto conforto is going to cost and that's why he said i don't think he's going to go back to the mets and maybe that's why the mets went and ponied up what they did for marty because when you see what conforto gets you're probably going to be like wow marte was a steal which is what we've been saying yeah we said we said the deal for starling martin once we saw it it's a seal great deal it's a great and again it's funny because my my whole my whole beef is like you said before i don't care about khan i don't care about escobar my thing is what yankee fans were saying after the fact because look my job isn't to put nobody on blast i'm not looking to do that but a lot of the cats that were saying oh the yankees wouldn't have matched that off or the same one saying they wanted to offer them those type of deals they would have seen people saying oh we wanted this guy that's the thing that bothers me about yankee and look this is a yankee podcast so it's kind of funny you're saying that but we keep it real that's exactly what it is my whole thing is though why do a lot of you cats feel like every other player that could be our team we got guys better than we don't i gotta come to you right now and say we don't we don't no we're not in that position the cat's saying oh there's yankee fans out there panicking now look at my tweet what did i say in my tweet not that they're panicking about getting a big name i said they have too many moves to not be aggressive i said it in my live chat the yankees have what aaron boone called giancarlo stand a unicorn remember because he he's magical when he's got everything going he's magical i said the same thing about the yankees off season right they got prospect capital and they got money to spend there is no excuse that the yankees come now what where a few days away from december 1st haven't made anything of significance not nothing at all nothing to tip a hand nothing to even tell the fan base yeah we are taking a different route what do they do release clint frazier okay he wasn't gonna they dear fade a couple guys bam the biggest move is tylawade to be honest the biggest move of the yankees off season so far has been tyler wade it's the one that made you say oh wow that was kind of surprising it was like whoa that's interesting they left squid they let squid and tyler wade go to the angels dia fade clint he's gonna be out there and then they'll probably throw this there's probably going to be something you're going to see some people probably react when they non-tender a guy or two now in a couple days because the nonsense the deadline's coming up they're probably in a long time they're probably going to non-tender a guy or two a lot of people a lot of people are predicting and i mean you i mean i feel like you know you've been saying that for a little while some people i've been hearing it for a while like people predicting and probably gets the non-tender um so yeah that'll be something but it's still not it's not what uh it's it's not what the mets have done it's not it's definitely not what detroit has done so far blue jays may add gauzeman yeah i mean it's looking like it could come down to the jays the mets i was told this morning i said it in the chat i also said it on the live that um the people that one of the guys i couldn't cooperate with anybody else said one of the guys that gave me actually to know with syndergaard stuff he said flat out he would he's expecting it to be done either today or tomorrow that he's going to the mets so because they made a very hard push to get them so i mean that might be even but even if he doesn't go to the mess he goes to the blue jays that's basically the blue jays saying we're not bringing ray back and yeah that's open to another club but again that's the blue jays now still getting better and then on top of that that's the robbie ray now does he go to the yankees so here's my thing about the yankee off season i'll see if you agree with me and and this is what this tweet basically meant so to all the fans out there that's oh you guys are panicking no nobody's panicking yeah it's not i i i said this i said this earlier and i'll say it again you could beat a lioness and you could wait to to jump and and make your move and catch your prey you can weigh back but you do that for the big meal of the day you do that for the big fish you don't need to do that for positions like catcher you don't need to do that for a backup outfielder you don't need to do that for jonathan vr you don't need to do that for a starting pitcher you can do that for your robbie ray you can do that for your seaguar or one of your top shortstops you can do that you can wait because look let's be realistic you want to be optimistic let's be optimistic there's four short stops out there that are not signed and it's this almost december 1st lockdown is coming we don't know if that's signed before or after but there's four guys that are available that need to play somewhere next year we know detroit would be interested we know texas that they're probably gonna get one one of each that can still leave you with two who whoever those names are whatever the mariners go out there and they get uh adam frazier hello and take some and take some right out of the of the talk maybe they put that money elsewhere you know what i mean now you got to look out for them somewhere else my thing is eventually eventually with the waiting game one of those players may crawl to the yanks i'd say look you know my guy does want to win he got this offer out there we may take a little less to come here yeah and that's what cashman probably is waiting for my thing is though that's not the only move that this team needs to make they need significant change trust me in my comment section today on my on my live chat which is this is obviously going to be tomorrow but saturday morning saturday afternoon everybody agreed i'm telling everybody agreed gary sanchez cannot be your catcher if you're a serious team you can't have gary sanchez behind the plate again can't do it can't do it then up not if you're the not if you're the yankees you're up the middle cannot be gary sanchez gleber aaron hicks and then whoever your new shortstop is you can't do it's not a winning formula you're not looking to win we've been saying this we've been saying this we've been saying this for we've been saying this for months guys been saying now for a couple weeks right i mean in our group chat and then i guess whenever whenever we you know record do episodes or whatever i feel like you know the yankees are a lot of the stuff that's coming out that they're putting out you know through their you know yes network people and beat writers and all that [ __ ] it's all it's all financial posturing right i don't put too much stock in anything that's been said so far right it's been said by guys like passin and rosenthal that they expect that they're like know the yankees are gonna give out one of those 300 million dollar contracts to either correa or seeger or one of those guys but then it's also been said by lower level guys like your shermans and whoever like no you know word on the street is that they're not gonna be giving out a 300 million dollar contract um a lot of people are saying that they can see them going with a stop gap and things like personally is francis putting in stock in either camp right now no why because i feel like nobody knows what they're doing because that's how cashman operates and you know what that's not necessarily a bad thing because when you're the yankees if you show your hand you're screwed right like if you show like listen this is our guy and if we don't get him like our entire offseason hinges on him then you're gonna have to overpay and you're gonna get beat over the head with the price so if you if you remain ambiguous it's probably better for you right which makes sense that if they are going to sign a 300 million dollar play a contract then they also put out that they're not signing it so that it's not as out there or if they are going to a stop gap it's better that they also put out that they maybe might dip in the water 300 million because you don't want to show your hand but all that all that being said the paris that that's speaking about like the big fish that's not speaking about the peripheral moves and we're talking about moves like catcher center field like things like that you know what i'm saying starting pitching is always a priority it's always a focus but i mean this off season right like it's something that has to be like you know at really at the forefront after you make one of these big moves i listened to boone on r2c2 the other day god bless you he sounded like it was it was an intro it was an interesting interview but i'll say towards the end when they started talking about like free agency and things like that or whatever he didn't give up anything so if you guys are going to go look into that to get info you're not going to find much but what he did say was that you know they're working and they're they have a couple targets they're talking about different guys every day and he said like he feels like you know right now they're in a position where they're just waiting for a big domino to fall and that once that domino falls you're going to see a bunch of subsequent moves that follow that right after i heard that i said okay let me do a little research here before i speak out of turn i want to look i looked at the 40-man roster which is currently exactly at 44. it's perfect perfectly at 40. and i went and i looked at it let me tell you what i gathered from looking at that roster this roster is not a roster that is built for opening day so clearly clearly the yankees are planning on making several moves so i'm not i'm not going to sit here and say like oh my god the yankees aren't doing anything they're not going to do nothing or whatever no no one thing for sure they're going to do something they're going to do something because the way the 40 man is right now this is not a 40 man that's going to be playing in april there's obviously going to be moves we don't have we don't have a short stop we don't have like like your first baseman is right now it's technically getting it's like there's a lot of you know i mean it's like no so clearly things are gonna happen but what we're saying is right now there's a mad dash to get some of these guys locked into deals right and some of these guys are signing for maybe less than what they're gonna be signing for on the other side of the lockout because on the other side of the lockout we could be looking at a luxury tax threshold that is way higher than just 210 right yeah we can be we can be looking at teams who are desperate yeah because a lot of people are saying oh but the players are going to be desperate to sign too the players are going to point that right back at the teams they're going to be like oh yeah i'm desperate to play for a team but you're desperate to sign somebody also right like it's not gonna it's not gonna be like oh well the players are the only ones desperate they have the owners always carry themselves with this air that like they run everything and everything what we've begun to begun to see the last couple of years with deals like tatis with deals like lindor with extensions like mookie bets trout uh all these guys soto's impending extension wander franco after you know freaking short rookie camp just got extended 12 years what we're starting to see is it's not about you owners anymore the players have power they have power and if they come out on the other side of the cba walking around with the big stick you're going to have to pay these guys what they want and that's it and and that's that's my whole thing so it's like there's there's a there's a way that this waiting game backfires that's all i'm saying right i understand the waiting game and you just said it too you understand it makes sense everybody knows that we we understand what cashman is doing this is not a method that um how you say like this is not a method that like is a you know it's a crazy method it's not proven or whatever this is a proven method in business right you wait guys out you wait them out wait you wait guys out wait for the market to be not a george thing you know it's not something that george would have done because you know he said the market and he also had an ego so you know he wanted to fill his own ego up so exactly what george washington worked no he wouldn't he would oh man there would have been moves today exactly yeah what what's what uh cohen did today well uncle steve did today yesterday george would have made a move you know just because he knew the mets were going to get a headline so you probably would have seen seeger as a yankee today yeah it would have just a secret or robbie reyes somebody he would have they would an agent would have got a call it would have been george they would have been jumping up and down because they knew what's up already and he got a monster deal yeah you know and and that's the way it works so nobody's saying that you know that's the way this yankee team literally has to run to organization no because you shouldn't be reactionary towards the mets of all things but at the end of the day there's a lot of like you said the 40 man ross i even i was just even browsing it just now it's not built for a club that is ready to play major league baseball so you know there's gonna be changes yeah my thing out there that i say is concerning is like you just said you don't know when the cba is gonna gonna be agreed to you don't know what month is it going to be february a month before spring training i mean if that's the case team players are going to be well i want to sign i want to go i want to do this i want to do that then you got to hope that any trade you started to talk about is is held up or you don't know how teams finances are going to change you don't know if their mindset's going to change or how they want to look at their business maybe look towards next year or whatever that's going to be you also don't know what other players may become available you don't know there's this is a very weird house because i do believe when moves are made they're going to be all grouped together because teams are going to be you know not necessarily reactionary but with a time frame that is limited to say this boom boom boom boom then you're gonna see one after the other my whole thing at the end of the day and i've kept to this is the changes that must happen need to happen this all season you can't finish this offseason and come to the yankees and say we got seeger and we got um uh uh uh jonathan vr because we think he's gonna help on the bench that's not an off season even though even if you had john great we also signed john gray that's not it i'm sorry sorry that is not it not just off season there's too many holes there's too many holes and that's my whole thing it's like look and it's not like you don't have plugs to fill it that's it exactly there's too many holes and but there's so many options for the holes right now like right now on this half of free agency what my whole thing is on the second half of free agency we don't know what is going to be there you don't know what is going to be there you don't know what kind of negotiations are going to be had you don't know what the conversations are gonna look or feel like and there's gonna be a lot of stuff going on again again the yankees could be operating under under the thought that we actually do know what the second half of free agency is gonna look like because maybe they have information that we're not privy to as fans i always put this out there as a disclaimer they operate at a much higher level than we do so they might have information about how the cba negotiations are actually going to go and they might know that okay it's not really going to go into february it's probably going to go into maybe mid-january or something like that right and we'll have time also you know we already hear the the rumblings of like the luxury tax threshold going up we already know that this is going to happen that's going gonna happen so like they might be playing with house money they might know things that are coming but us as fans we don't of course and that's why we're gonna react the way that we're reacting because especially when you see teams moving with a sense of purpose because that that just shows you that regardless of what the thank you the yankees think there are other teams who think nah i need to get stuff done right now because we don't know what the second half is going to look like and you have plenty you have plenty of like uh teams that have proven that the padres dealing frasier on this side of uh you know the the lockout you know i'm saying that that's that speaks volumes now i put out a tweet today i was like i was like you don't know if they dealt frazier because they wanted to open space for cj abrams to come up right and maybe and maybe shift over to second base maybe a free agent or or maybe now they want to dip their maybe they want to dip their sales into freaking the the simian market or the buyers market yeah if they if they start having conversations with buyers buyers is that that whole thing is going to be all over the place now because right now you have a lot of people saying look bias is looking like that's the tigers priority and like they're gonna like make it work according to reports today buys on the mets are off in terms of like the money figure yeah so which you know i could see some met fans being like oh like what the hell like you know we're spending money like whatever why are you gonna like be cheap on the bias deal when we just spend all this other money but you guys got to remember he they extended lindor 341 million dollar like that's a lot of money they just spent 120 something yesterday like they're spending money you can't be upset they're like they're not spending they're spending they're spending money the thing is that if bias is pricing them out meaning that the tigers are pricing them out of bias because they don't want to price up to like korea yep and the mets might have to take the l there because it is what it is and biases market is is really robust right now you got the tigers you got the mess the red socks are in on him there's a lot of teams if the team like the padres gets in on that too who knows now with simeon it's like a toss-up i mean who knows because i seattle was a team that was like i felt like they're a really good fit he's from like up there area whatever and they they got adam frazier now so it's like hey simeon very nice very nice deal that was a really really good deal does that make does that open the track for him to come back to toronto a little bit easier or is toronto looking for other things like you know right now they're focused on pitching but you see them looking at a lot of guys who are not named robbie ray which would lead you to think they feel like they're going to be priced out of robbie ray which is something i tweeted weeks ago and a bunch of you were saying like oh no that's not the case they're just checking in because you know maybe whatever i said this i said this when we started to see what verlander's market was looking like remember you did you did i was saying i was like he's gonna get i thought he was gonna get two years 40. he ended up getting 50. which i thought was crazy i said he's going to get at least like two years 40. he got 50. cindergard got what 21. cinderella is 25. wasn't it 25 so cinegar is 25 for the one year right mats four years 44 million yeah water eduardo rodriguez 77 they're going to get hey golfman's look at the players too that got the players involved and going after goldsmith you got the mets you got the i think the mariners are interested you got the blue jays you've got teams of money kevin gosse the giants are still there probably with them yeah so you got kevin goffman's gonna go out there and get himself a paycheck and you know who's looking at oh no he's looking at that robbie ray's happy robbery could wait he could wait all day so just wait chill chill they're the ones that can be patient we need we need we need a cowboy in the bronx though we need a cowboy in the bronx we need robbie right in the bronx i'm sick of talking about this you know what i mean i'm almost sick of talking about we need a cowboy and a bronze my man had that cowboy hat and i said man that's it it's like the movie city slickers it's like the movie city slickers man that's what we need we get them a cowboy hat with a yankee logo around the front listen and i think i think that that's one of the things that actually has shown me like my optimism early on in the offseason wasn't necessarily unfounded like maybe we do have reasons to be optimistic because when you listen to the guys who have been in the players who have been in on some of these guys available right sometimes you hear the yankees but sometimes you don't and it makes people wonder like well you know stephen metz pretty solid pitcher did okay in toronto pitched really well against the yankees why weren't the yankees in that market why weren't the yankees in eduardo rodriguez's market these are guys who came to the bronx pushed against us and shut us down several times throughout the year why weren't they in those markets gossman has tons of people right now in his market haven't heard anything about the yankees talking to yanks nope some people are saying some people are saying oh well because they're gonna like you know they're looking to trade for a picture or they're looking to get like a really low level thing or whatever could be that or it could be that they're like yeah let all of these guys go and snatch up your thor's your stephen mats your eduardo rodriguez your kevin gossman's your john gray's your max scherzers and then let's see what happens with ray at the end right right and let's see what happens with ray at the end we know we're gonna if because because you said it that's cashman's guy he's wanted him for years yeah for all you know they have a bulletin board in yankee stadium right now with robbie ray as one of the center pieces and they're like he's our freaking guy we gotta get him yeah but they're trying to play it like let's see look we know we're gonna have to pay him but let's figure out exactly how much we're gonna have to pay him let's see what it's gonna be right we don't know yet but again that's the whole thing it's like waiting that waiting game you got to be careful because you never know they have the power robbie ray sits down and watches greg gets signed gossman gets signed all these guys and he's not in a rush he knows he's going to get paid yeah correa knows you never know buyers goes to detroit correa knows he's going to get paid well that too and you know the longer you wait too you got to remember one thing players also see other teams getting better and they may enjoy that fit more so you know robbie ray sees the jays doing all this and who the hell knows what the js are up to you know like you said the cba goes up and jays go look man you know what we may not be able to do the one the 165 170 or whatever the hell kind of deal you get to something whatever hella will be but you know maybe maybe we can make something work maybe we give you more years maybe it takes that aav down a little bit well not not one something excuse me you guys know what i mean yeah but um for a guy like robbie ray i mean i i've said the reason why i just think it makes too much sense for the yankees is just because the strikeout numbers that's never going to change he's not going to not strike guys out will a zra go up i predicted it goes about a run and i believe that i think his era goes up to the mid threes maybe even high threes but it's worth it it's still worth it it's still worth it because i guess you gotta have guys that strike guys out in the postseason and the names alone back to back with scare teams the names alone are righty lefty that would probably be one and two in baseball on strikeouts if they're healthy all year yeah you have that on your club you notice what you're facing that's terrifying that's terrifying that's like shilling and johnson that's just johnson type [ __ ] it's rough it's rough and i could see i could see cashman saying like look we that's one of the priorities like we need to do that i could see that 100 i mean kevin kernan thinks so kevin kerner thinks that's his guy yeah he thinks that he tried too many times to get him not to get him now because of money yeah i feel like i feel like that's one of the things that like it would surprise a lot of people um but it wouldn't surprise me i i and i'd be i tell people like i would be way more shocked if they ended up with correa than i would be if they signed robbie ray i i would like i feel like shocked at correa also i feel like robbie ray i feel like robbie ray is like cashman has been like public about like his pursuit of him like not because he wanted to be public but like it just it's become public he's been after this guy for years now well it wasn't so close all it takes is one year he had a start in arizona and they literally asked them about it he was like the worst thing for me is going to be shaving my beard yeah like they asked him that if you go to new york you know what is it going to you say god i love it but the worst thing about me is shaving my beard like other than that and he always been you know but just a stubble you can't even have a lot of that showing so i mean you know shaving did like every other day he was like that would be the annoying part but other than that i mean every like i said i i i mean he'll love it he's gonna everything i love it over here everything i've heard about robbie ray is literally everything this team needs they need a guy again that was like sabathia that was just look we got to do the dirty [ __ ] i'm there i'll throw behind it dude robbie ray's not he's not scared to do that no he's tough on the mountain oh by the way i actually learned something interesting about him a lot of it actually wasn't necessarily mechanics for him it was actually weight gain um isn't that interesting i didn't even know that apparently it balanced him out more by being heavier on the mound yeah yeah so he said that he said that and a little bit of slight mechanics actually is what led to him having much better control so that was interesting so um it was bulked up and that made him remember a more command driven picture you remember when cece lost all that weight and he had no command at all anymore terrible yeah yeah a lot of people a lot of people need need the weight to hold you down center you better david wells talked about that a long time ago that him pitching heavy was better for them that's just how it was yeah is that people these days people are getting used to seeing like these like tall slender or even buff pictures and they're like oh my god like that's what a picture looks like whatever when we were coming up a lot of pitchers had beer guts yeah of course just heavy heavier set guys or just heavier guys they were throwing but they were throwing cheese they were throwing cheese and they could control it right and i think a lot of times right now with these bulky guys that you see like even your thor's or your michael lorenzo's or whatever these guys are real muscular dudes or whatever but it's like they'll struggle with the wild everything they'll struggle getting wild a lot of stuff and they struggle to stay healthy because they're all over the place is what it is like they're all over the place and they're lifting weights and stuff like that whatever it's not good it's not yeah you guys know how i feel about the whole the weightlifting and [ __ ] like that with baseball i think i don't know how the hell it got into it but i feel like i think it's like as limited as possible if you can limit that as much as it's a lot of strength as much as you can muscles especially doing something like bass when you're swinging a bat you're throwing a ball you're a lot with the sides with your obliques with your with your hamstrings a lot it's a lot of work where you're putting no pressure and power by you know working on other stuff like that but um oh bro we lost your camera yeah yeah i'll get it i'll get it back on i got like a i got like a faulty um plug here it's annoying oh man it'll come back on give me one second don't worry we're experiencing technical difficulties give us two to three seconds we'll be back this is what happens when you do live stuff right there we go see we've got a green there we go let's go we're back but um no like i'm saying i mean robbie ray would just be a great fit he would be a great fit for the club he really would be and all it's going to cost is a little bit of money and you know um and that and and from there you know the one thing i wouldn't want to see is gary sanchez catching him i wouldn't want to see that that would be terrible and i mean i i i broke that down again today on the live i don't even want to really talk about it much because i don't want to take up much of our time doing it but after what you saw from gary sanchez last year the horrible place after you got what three-fifths of the rotation not one of the pitch to him towards the end of the year two years in a row of not pitching in a playoff game at the end of the day guys i mean that's my thing how is that your starting catcher you basically already said he's not no more and now you're going to keep this guy again for another year no it's the thing that people like are delusional about they tell you oh no but sanchez is sanchez sanchez doesn't play the big games your ace doesn't want to pitch to him if you sign another frontline starter that starter's not going to want to push this copyright shouldn't pitch to him he got he got to throw sliders in the dirt why would you want robbie ray throwing no if if cole can't throw to sanchez robbie ray has no business even even looking at gary no no way no it's like so you're talking about games one and two of a potential playoff series going to higgy yeah like and some fans are okay with that i don't i'm not no i'm not i'm not anymore not at all like i was okay with it when it was just cold catching all right because boone's not gonna do [ __ ] about it so yeah that's how it is yeah but my whole thing too is you know if if you look at if you look at gary sanchez i saw somebody tweet this today there's a video or a picture of him working out everybody oh look to the people who called him fat and lazy gary sanchez could come in with a six-pack next year that doesn't mean he's going to improve his catching i mean that's not the thing you guys talk about stupid [ __ ] it's not even about the fat and lazy stuff but he does it every year he does it every year every year and by the way he shows up to spring training a lean mean hitting machine thank you he's got it in shape year after year and he's gotten worse sucks by may fam he's gotten worse defensively like i looked at the fan grafting matter of fact while we're here let me see if i can find this um hold on a second i gotta try to find it because i was laughing catchers by war okay because i saw somebody post this on fangrest and i'm like oh okay all right i get what people are doing because you know and then they were like oh it looked good because they just put it for american league and i said okay america like i said now let's look at all leagues let's look at national league and american league right and i was going to make a video about this but since we're here i'll talk about it right now why not all right in war in the american league so i'll be fair and do what everybody else did and and go by the american league first and league gary sanchez was ranked seventh overall mitch garver was ahead of him max stassi was ahead of him sean murphy salvador perez he has monte grandel and mike zunino who was number one in the american league those are the guys that were ahead of him he was seventh when it comes to just the american league now let's look at major league baseball because you know there's this whole idea that gary sanchez is just superior compared to everybody else offensively all right now gary sanchez ranks 19th in all of major league baseball and he's only thought he was i thought he was the best offensive catcher in the game he's also .1 points point one only ahead of danny jansen and francisco mejia two ahead of reese maguire okay point two he's also tied with manny pina okay john gomez a little above him elias diaz of colorado's above him carson kelly who is always injured is above him by point two dalton varshall who just moved to catching is above him by point five and then the list goes on and on to your best guys like your jacob stallings your salvador perez uh real muto and all those guys but then there's an interesting one defensive war bro i don't even want to see him no no you want to laugh you really want to laugh for a second oh man what is it 28 20 28 or 29 bro this is going by hold on hold on this ain't going by team this is by every catcher so when i first saw the list right i said what the [ __ ] is he i said i'm looking i'm looking all right hold on maybe i'm just missing let me look for the ny ny and a y and y and y nothing's popping up so i said hold on a second kyle hey kashioka's 19th i said wait there gotta be something wrong here ny i know why i said oh damn there's another page there's three pages all right it goes from one to thirty i said let me go let me move to the next page i said gary gotta be there he is 37th 37th oh my gosh 37th you know what that means when you're 37 guys let me explain that to you that means that teams have backup catchers who are better than gary sanchez defensively this is crazy bro like i mean our own backup catcher is better than gary sanchez defensively guys again i don't know how many times we're gonna have to say this we're sounding like a production like like a broken record here we can live without gary sanchez's offense i promise you we can live without his offense yes we can live without it no it's the 20 it's the 20 some odd home runs that he's going to spray in here and there whatever it's like if we if we keep joking again that one hot streak a year like that people people when he's back yeah yeah every every year he comes back listen i loved i i loved gary sanchez as much as as much as the next guy did but you know you got we got to move on it's about winning it's about winning gary sanchez as a catcher just doesn't seem like a winning move i'm sorry he's not i'm sorry if that hurts people's feelings or whatever but it's surrendering it's waving to white's leg it's waving the white flag if i'm look if i'm in those meetings with brian cashman i swear to god i wish i could be um i'll never be welcomed to him but that's okay but if i'm in those meetings and i'm sitting there i i look across the table to all the pro scouts probably actually yankees probably won't have that if i got all the analytical nerds around them and i'm just looking at all of them saying do we got to get cole on the phone do we got to get montgomery on the phone kluber's a free agent but you guys want to call him up real quick you want to call him to see what he thinks i'm i mean are we really kidding ourselves here to continue this guy to throw him back out and then and then you wonder why there's people like pizzamanetti of ny news who's talking about an obvious disconnect between a fan base and the ownership and the team because fans have known this [ __ ] for years and they keep running the same guy out there going guys it's gonna work this year this year this year every good team has a strong middle of the lineup middle of middle of the of the infield they're strong up the middle champions which means start starting pitching catcher second base shortstop center field francis the last time we won the world series um who was the who who do we have there in center field talk about catching okay well let's play a game that i love to play it makes me very sad but i love to play it look at the 2009 yankees world series lineup it's gonna make me very sad but let's do it let's do it this is a game guys this is a game this is a game that i love that i love to play it's fun because you probably could argue you got three out of the four guys are hall of famers yeah if not you know obviously and the last one is very very good was a very very good player okay so this is not the lineup in terms of order but this is how we lined up for game one wait hold on is this better be correct we have posada catching chair at first kanoa at second okay jeter short jeter a-rod at third like if you just stop right there that's it who's inside of who's in center field melky melky took center of that game damian was unless melkian okay but you typically would either be milky or damon tell milky or dean all right so that day so when you talk about strong up the middle that team was strong as hell up the middle ridiculously stronger than the next last time this team won a light a light matsuya dh that's the last time this team won a world series and they had the formula they had it all when you looked at that team you said there's a championship caliber team no and then uh pitching uh brunette pettit cece jabba aceves mariano who was a beast in the planet zamasu martay the melanson was with us that year i mean david roberts but you look at a lot of that look at the two guys and it's funny because you know i never really thought about this until this moment right now if you look at the 09 off season it's almost what the yankees had to do right now they added two strikeout pictures cece sebastian aj burnett they added the big first baseman which they obviously need now whether that's anthony rizzo or i don't know how to help the matt olson deal doesn't happen i really don't the the mariners just took themselves out of the picture likely we're trading for a few prospects um you know i think i think boston could still be a little scary with a move like that maybe maybe i don't think they have they don't have better prospects to offer than the could be but that that's the whole thing right there they they're farming they don't have better doesn't compete doesn't compete with unless they end up looking to trade one of those guys that were on the major league roster this [ __ ] that was really good uh which came up and pitched and yeah i still even see it better than what the yankees could offer no because then it would be money too the money too once they come up to the majors you know the money changes i don't think the rays are doing that i i don't know it doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like a race the brewers could the white sox maybe maybe but there's not there's not a lot of clubs out there that i'm looking at are looking to win now that are really going to be able to beat the yankees when it comes to getting a guy like matt olsen and that could take care of a lot of their moves right that could take care of first base and like i said i think if you make a deal with oakland i'm sorry you got to get a starting pitcher i mean make that deal bigger there's no point in just doing it if you're going to give up guys all right then let's give them if it's make the one giant deal if it's taking this long i'd like to believe that that it's because they're trying to exp they're doing their best to expand it and not that they're lowballing them with the offer it's either that or it could also be that oakland is also doing what the yankees are doing with a big free asian they're saying let rizzo go let freeman go and then we got to feel the play open whoever's rizzo if they really wanted to they could deal due to spring training that they wanted to they have they could hold they could they could hold on to them and deal with the at the at the trade deadline they'll get more now likely to they know they know they know that now this off season is is the peak so i mean i'm i'm honestly i i believe that deal is eventually going to happen at some point so i think their first video is going to be that route and it just makes more sense too because if you do eventually spend money on on a short slab if you do especially uh spend money let's say on robbie ray we know it's not going to be cheap and if you do that that locks you in right that locks you in for first base is not going to be too expensive 8 million or so depending on if you do move uh uh uh um herman or or voight or one of these guys you're also saving money there so you could still be moved exactly these are guys who are most likely gonna be moved no doubt about it so you're still saving money in in certain places like that so the yankees off season plan i feel like is well known by the majority of fans we know what they what they should do and i think that's the reason why a lot of us are just like but there's been nothing yet so all of it could come at one time all of it could come very quickly but i think there are certain moves that just make more logical sense because the yankees aren't going to go dish out 300 plus guys they're not going to do that i i i feel overly confident now that we're not going to see that happen maybe it does and i told you i said it a hundred times if it's wrong i'll be happy to say i was wrong i did not and based off the people telling me it i don't see the yankees doing it now i know your past sins and all these other guys saying they're gonna make a huge splash they're gonna you know they're gonna spend the money i don't see it i don't i don't see it i don't see it happening maybe it will but when it comes to the logical moves there are still so many out there without having to spend a ton of money that they could make to greatly improve this team it's just that they they have to go and do it and and right now you know there hasn't been a you know a jump in the gun to do so i'm still i'm i'm still a maybe on like the big short stop signing i don't know but do you think a 300 plus million i say maybe i say maybe the only reason i say maybe is this if the luxury tax threshold goes up to freaking 2 30 yeah or 240 or some [ __ ] like that then 300 another 300 million dollar deal is not going to do anything to the yankees but it's happening i could see them do it but if that doesn't yeah also it is it is house time and he does want to resign judge so that's that's the thing yeah but to me that's that's what that's what keeps me like at bay with it right now because like i don't know what the luxury tax is gonna be after the new cba is signed i know they want to sign judge i know they want to sign a pitcher i know they have to pay somebody at shortstop so i'm like they already have cold air they already have stent in there um if they do trade for olson it probably isn't so that they watch them walk away in two years so they would want to pay for him too like i'm looking at it and i'm like okay i could see you know i could see what's happening here this is an off-season that could set you up for a team that is locked in for the next three three four seasons that's right and this is who you're going with and then you just add and plug and plug and play when you need to yep right that's what has me like saying i'm iffy on it because i don't know what the cba is going to be yeah if i know for a fact that the cba is going to be the the luxury tax threshold is 2 35 next year or 2 30 or 2 40. that's 240 is crazy 240 i don't know how they don't sign correa and just say [ __ ] it because why not give me correa give me robbie ray like we can add both of them and still be under like get the [ __ ] out like like barely over um so that's what's gonna really upset fans when it actually happens and they don't do the moves exactly see that that's really gonna upset fans that's that would be where you really like and that's where i would really like lose it because i just feel like you stayed under the threshold last year the threshold went up this year and you still didn't sign one of these guys like what like well let me let me not say lose it because like say the threshold does go up to 230 240 and they don't get correa they don't get seeger but they get robbie ray they get story and they get like i'm probably not going to lose it because i'm going to be like i'd be happy about that i'm like we got better we got better tell you something you changed three positions if you could if you could change three yeah let me let me i'll bump it up to four i'll bump it up to four just to be fair just be friend i already said i don't think shortstop is the major priority that everybody's talking about i think it is just because of the names available but i think if you upgraded that olsen if you get a catcher if you upgrade a starting pitcher and then of course you get a shortstop whoever that may be i think that's enough and that's me saying it i'm not an easy sell i'm a hard sell i've said that i've said that you're probably coming march you know ny news tv jumps up in january you're probably gonna hear pete complaining i'm just keeping it real because i don't have faith in the team right now and the [ __ ] i hear is not cute you know and i try to report most of it some of it i don't report out there i tell you guys about it because i can't corroborate it yet with anybody else and when i do it then i'll report it i'll put it out there but a lot of the [ __ ] i'm hearing isn't cute so you know because of right now i'm not the most you know i'm not hopping up and down but like you said you were right if we didn't get correa if we didn't get seeger you end up getting story even if it's a one-year deal you you get olson over there you sign robbie ray also and maybe you get a uh you trade you trade for catching i'm telling you right now i'm gonna pat brian cashman on the back and i'm saying look for what you were given you did a hell of a job with what you were given without the big money without steinberg saying he go kid here's a blank checkbook have fun without that being said you did a good job cash i'll pat you on the back but i'm not patting nobody on a bag if they gonna play the waiting game they're gonna lock up correa or seeger and say yeah we also got olsen yeah the offense is cute but that's not enough of me it's not enough for me all right we got it we got we got to see we got to see what happens i mean honestly i'm just i'm dying for them to do something like i was hoping that the olsen deal would get done you know before the the lockout just so that we're like we went into the lockout with you know an ace in our pocket already like well we know you know we know austin's our first baseman already going in so that's one thing less to worry about now we just got to figure because to me this just like we said there's a lot like is laboratories going to be there still opening day or are we going to put dj at second base shouldn't be but he probably will you know what i mean and he pro and he probably will be he probably will be like he probably will be and they probably i see a lot of people talking about you know them moving geo and then putting dj at third which i don't like i don't like that at all i don't like it that at all but uh i did it i did it again i got i got a faulty um faulty wire here yeah but i mean i'll tell you this i'll tell you this uh i was thinking about this recently the last couple of days uh in regard to glaber if they if by some miracle and again i say miracle because i have it i still have it really low on my list of possibility but if by some miracle they end up with carlos correa i do feel a lot better about gleber tourists and i'll tell you that second base yeah yeah because he is not going to be able to pull that [ __ ] with korea over there he shouldn't be like that correa is not going to have that [ __ ] not not running not hustling into first base not running balls out errors and [ __ ] like correa is not gonna have that he would be an amazing influence for somebody like labor tourists he might he might unlock that potential in clever tourists that they've been trying to sell us all for years fire under his ass taurus is worrying me that he's headed down to gary sanchez's path very quickly i remember i i said it uh it was towards the end of the season it might have been by the deadline that i was like he's really working me on that he's too comfortable he's got this he's got completely something wrong there too i don't know if he's with management too that just lets him lets him do the [ __ ] he does i don't know but um that's all goes with leadership too and chemistry in the clubhouse and whatever that looks like um that the yankees obviously need to work on they they don't design that he didn't listen to the hitting coach at all no that much no that much was obvious tim's came don't worry about it and said it like yes this guy you know doesn't really stick to the uh the approach that we come up with but it's crazy because i was looking at videos of him you know early on in his career and i was just like geez like i just look at his swing and i'm just like what happened it just got it got so much low too how did you lose like like because his swing early on a thing of beauty pulling ripping ball like whatever i'm like he would turn on a pitch very very quickly yeah you would turn the pitch very very you watch him now it's like a labored swing it's labored he's completely off balance he's very very different grounded out to second base all the time little weak pop-ups barely out of the infield i'm like what happened what happened i don't know i mean yeah he's working on his hitting don't get me wrong i know some of you guys are watching this well he's been working on his hitting with judge yeah i saw the videos too friggin batting cage doesn't do much for me that's my thing i'm like what do you guys think a lot of baseball players do all off season you really think they go home and sit on the couch and and watch netflix all day no some of them are freaking games some of them might but most of these guys have been doing this their entire life so guess what their offseason requires around doing stuff with baseball i was happy i love when they see that stuff like oh my god look he's working out oh my god guys they play major league baseball you know you want to try to stay sharp to a degree he better be working out no i don't the only thing the only thing the only thing that i will say about that that i was happy to see was that that that's probably the first time i saw him in the off season working with judge and i was like that's who you need to be working out with yeah that's true if you're going to work out with anybody that uh it's i'm not saying that oh him and geo is not a good no they're good pals and friends or whatever but whatever geo's approach is to hitting he can afford to do that labor cannot quickly reconnect he needs to be with somebody like judge who's gonna get him to that laser focus or whatever because there's some i'm telling you and that's why like i said like oh yeah you end up with somebody like korea and i know correa will he will be on glaber torres ass from day one to the end of the season he won't let that kid rest he will not let that kid rest he makes a mistake you'll see it he'll call him out in the dugout he'll call him out on the field but what the [ __ ] he'll be getting those looks on the field and everything yeah yeah yeah it'll be it will be it will be something but i think i think that's how you get the potential that you need to get out of labor because that's tough that's the way that we got it out of gary's tough love works tough love to work for some reason we were told that um you know boone was just meant to be a therapist and he's not allowed to apparently do any of his other [ __ ] so that that's dr melfi that's all he's supposed to be is dr melfi and that's it so it is what it is you know the yankee off season is underway we'll see what happens um i do want to talk about the first hall of fame ballot that's been released um by jack mccaffery who released the first hall of fame ballot today may i just say this real quick these people shouldn't deserve votes so let me just read you guys some of the names that are on this barry bonds roger clemens todd helping tory hunter andrew jones jeff kent um joe nathan david ortiz justin morneau tim lindsecum john papa bond jake peavy andy pettit manny ramirez alex rodriguez scott rowland jimmy rollins kurt schilling is last year gary sheffield sammy salsa mark tashira omar visquel vasquel and billy wagner this guy here's the guys you heard all those names here's who we voted for bobby abreu todd helton ryan howard andrew jones jeff kent jimmy rollins jimmy [ __ ] rollins and omar vizquel this guy has a hall of fame vote this is how this is literally one of the dumbest ballots i have ever seen this is worse than the dude who left jeter off the ballot and we're gonna see a bunch of them we're going to see a bunch of them like this now the only one that i almost agree with that could potentially be jeff kent i agree with jeff ken what about andrew jones i agree with jeff kent um i mean all the andrew jones defense counts let me tell you something he's one i'll give him the center i'm going to be i'm going to be i was going to say i'm going to be lenient i'll give him i'm i'll give you omar vesquel for sure all right i'll give you jeff kent i'll give you andrew jones bro my man voted for jimmy rollins jimmy rollins i'm not you know and yo no offense i love jimmy no offense oh fema come on i'm not voting for jiminy rollins especially not like my thing is how you vote for jimmy rollins and not gary sheffield yeah that means like where does your brain like where does your brain go that you're like players on there not not gary how do you vote bobby or brady i don't care if they took more steroids than a horse stakes bro how do you vote how do you jimmy rollins over alex roger matter of fact let's take the several years away over scott rowland um he didn't vote he didn't vote for scott rowland you got a better case for scott fam you got a better case for billy wagner being one of the best clothes of all time this is crazy because this is gonna get so this is gonna be so bad i'm looking at this and i'm just like look are we missing someone jimmy rollins i'm about to look up jimmy jimmy i'm today i'm looking like i'm looking like this and i'm just i'm just looking at i'm just like you know i see i know what i know what the problem is here look um i may have an mvp award it's current it's before career hitter 2 400 hits i remember he won the one mv i know he won this is not a hall of famer yeah one two three four four gold gloves one two three this is a good rea a good a very not even fair i won't even say very good this is a very solid major league ball player bernie williams was borderline hall of fame this is a very solid ball player bernie williams was way better than jimmy rollins oh not even come on i mean come on way better than jimmy rollins and people have no problem telling us that bernie williams wasn't even he shouldn't be that's why he's not a part of the core four and he wasn't important and all that [ __ ] don't give me that um he's a career 297 hitter i'm like don't don't give me it people swear bernie williams 297 he almost had 300 home runs as a center fielder bro these are the same people who tell us that batting average doesn't matter and those other nonsense i don't even listen to them anymore jimmy my biggest problem my biggest problem with this ballot it's not even going to be what most people think it is because the steroid stuff and everything yeah i'm i'll give you my opinion on that my biggest problem is this is it's kurt schillings last year and you writers are going to leave him off the ballot because of his political views because of his political views and i hate that i'm i hate that i have to do this as a yankee fan because like curt schilling was the bane of my existence for a long time like when he was on arizona when he was on boston like i don't like kurt schilling as a player because he didn't do anything but hurt me but i'll be damned if i sit here and let you guys leave him off the ballots because of his political views i don't see what the hell that has to do there has nothing to do with it what he did on a baseball scene nothing at all yeah what he did on the baseball field now i guess i could say this was a criminal if he was a criminal or something well on top of it murdered people well on top of it too there was never nothing on the base before while he played that was political no or nothing on a field where you looked at i was like oh my god he made a remark like that's disgusting that's what i'm saying he never did nothing to disgrace himself as a player this is what i'm saying but no he comes out and you know he supports somebody people don't like and all of a sudden it's like now you can't get into the hall of fame after the career that kurt schilling had like that's what we're going to do so we're we're going to we're going to keep kurt schilling out we're going to keep curse shilling out but you're going to you're going to check off jimmy rollins with a straight face i got over 3 000 career strikeouts over 200 wins he pitched 3 200 innings yeah they don't realize that you're not going to see no guys like this not at all you're not going to see guys like this anymore pitchers don't even pitch into the sixth inning anymore all right what this guy was so hated he couldn't even win a cy young award bro the man listen i i really cannot believe that i have to sit up here and defend curt schilling because like i'm telling you i would scream crazy things at my television set when he was pitching against the yankees crazy things i would if you would have told me 10 you know 10 years ago 12 years ago that i'd be on a podcast defending that man i would have laughed you out the room but i guess i have to because there's no sense anymore people are gonna they will comfortably check off jimmy freaking rollins and overlook kurt schilling in his last year on the ballot so he's going to fall off the ballot because you don't like his political views and but but nobody nobody can explain to me how that how that affects what he did on the field nothing at all we were talking about this before we were talking about this before we went live with all this stuff like this kurt schilling to even think about it like i look at this list i'll pull this list up kurt schilling is a first ballot hall of famer not even and he already said he doesn't care if he doesn't get in he's like i'm just a student of the game i love the game whatever it is what it is he actually he said he'd rather be removed from the list altogether because he's like he doesn't think it's right it's it's stupid like there should be a bar set where you're just a hall of famer i'm sorry there needs to be like a standard have you reached these certain numbers there shouldn't be anybody that that allows them to judge you as a person so you don't get in because i'm gonna keep it real people are gonna say i'm getting political here they're a bunch of liberal supporters there are a bunch of liberal leaning folks who see that kurt schilling does not share their political beliefs and will not vote for him you're giving certain people again power that they probably don't fully deserve it's the same people that's holding all the steroid users no matter what accountable that either with or without steroids they should be in the hall of fame that's another argument that it's like i'm so sick and tired of having these freaking talks with people like you can say whatever you want you don't like alex rodriguez you would that's fine or whatever alex rodriguez is one of the greatest baseball players of all time he's a hall of famer i don't care what you think barry bonds he might be the greatest he might be the greatest ball player ever right i i don't care what you think about what he i don't care i don't care he might be the greatest ball player ever steroids are not the guy there was the greatest seasons ever that's that's not even comparable he had the greatest seasons of all time oh and then no no but and then people went oh but to stare away it tarnished and stained the game don't give me that [ __ ] bud ceiling knew all about that [ __ ] all everybody knew all about it everybody was turning their freaking turning a blind eye to it because they were selling tickets they were filling they were putting butts in the seats after years where baseball was losing viewership they were losing patrons at the ballpark yeah they were trying they were losing everything was the humble home run remember the um chicks dig the home the long ball chicks dig the long balls that was the big thing it was all about the home run the same the same wire and sosa i was just about to say that oh brewers he owned the brewers during the time i remember mark maguire will pull ahead of of sammy solis in a home run race sosa would go to milwaukee and hit five home runs in a three-game series he was getting fastballs down the pipe and i'm sitting in my i remember my father do something said no he'll catch up to him because we both we both love mark maguire but we love sammy sosa it was like a thing like whoever won one but yeah these this brought baseball back you know what i mean i remember sitting in front of the computer yeah when game day like first came out and no joke me and my dad we were so stupid we would sit there right and we would wait for the in-play run thing to pop we sit there like this home run home run home run in front of the computer screen and you know if you got the homework oh yeah yeah you know what i mean but that [ __ ] brought baseball back so the same cats that are getting crucified made all these people money and they turned that back on them and stabbed them in the back and my thing is my thing on top of that is you want to talk and sit on your high horse now as an organization major league baseball do whatever do whatever you want but then you know what i want all the right whatever records were set during the juice ball season i want those i want those erased well i want them erased do any of the astros will deserve to be in the hall of fame no it's confirmed they cheated that's not a that's not a rumor oh yeah but they're gonna they're gonna they're gonna get them i already saw somebody the other day telling me that jose altuve is a first ballot hall of famer or that he will eventually get into the hall of fame and listen i'm not going to be the guy who's going to fight against whether jose altuve is going to get in there or not if he has a couple good a couple more good seasons if he wins another ring if he does that and they want to put him in the hall of fame so be it i don't like the guy i think i'm not going to say that here's politically incorrect but i got you know some choice phrases that i like to refer to him as but it doesn't bother me if he gets in or not what bothers me is that if he gets in but you don't let in a rod big poppy manny ramirez barry bonds roger clement like and you don't let them in then it's gonna bother me yep then it's gonna bother it's gonna bother the [ __ ] out of me because the same way that steroids is a stain on their on their legacy forever i want 2017 to be a stain on every astros legacy forever even if we sign korea tomorrow i'm still gonna tell you guys this we can sign carlo's career tomorrow and carl's correa could play the next 10 years in the new york yankees and have freaking the greatest seasons you ever saw when five mvps do whatever if they if the hall of fame comes up and they go or whatever i'm gonna say well no 2017 happened it happened if that's the rule that you guys want to play by but the truth of the matter is that's not the rule they want to play by they they want to scapegoat these guys they want to scapegoat these guys for something that they were all complicit in yeah they were all complicit they all knew that all the owners knew it baseball knew it the players knew it come on it wasn't like some you know the funny thing is when they talk about um jose canseco yeah he was crazy but you released the book juiced and all that started all this nonsense he said it at the time he said flat out the guys they got under congress and all this stuff and testifying at the end of the day it was it was 80 of baseball including the minor leagues yeah so they're targeting the big guys because they were actually good ball players already and this is the issue this is the thing i'm saying that won the baton title one year i forgot his name alex castillo or something like that he did he had i don't know if he won the badass side but he had a really good year he admitted to taking step runs he came back and he was [ __ ] bonds could have got off steroids and still been legit mark maguire would have still been hit at 45 50 plus homers a year sammy sosa would have still been a good ball player a-rod hit 30 home runs at 40 years old what 50 as a rookie what are we talking about here like here's my thing you could you could inject people with as much steroids as you want i mean you want to try it we should try it let them give aaron hicks yeah yeah whatever the let them give aaron hicks whatever the [ __ ] bonds was taken i want to i want to see if he puts up a bonds a bonds-esque season it's not going to happen because his back-to-ball skills aren't what barry bonzas were his eye it was not what barry bonds was like these are things that you can't quantify but you want to tell me that no no it doesn't mean anything because he took stairways or whatever you know how many guys take steroids how many guys did take steroids they got suspended and sucked and still sold yeah no no but they want to tell me no no because don't give me that [ __ ] don't give me that [ __ ] you can't compare it's not the same robinson can know oh robinson cannot take steroids or whatever so now his legacy is targeting whatever well you know what robinson was taking steroids with milky cabrera why wasn't milky cabrera as good as robbie cano right melky cabrera went on to have what 102 decent two or three decent years all together they and him and keno were taking the same exact [ __ ] right the same exact [ __ ] and don't argue because there's people i know people can say oh no how do you know it's whatever trust me i know i'm dominican i've had conversations with people i know where they get the [ __ ] i know how they get the sh i know the name of the [ __ ] they were taking the same exact [ __ ] okay the same exact [ __ ] and they didn't have anywhere near the same exact results because one is naturally just better one was naturally just a better ball player better whatever right a-rod a-rod was a-rod since freaking florida broke i was about to say since college since westminster high school like don't give me that don't give me that like say you didn't like him or you didn't like his attitude and he was over here like walking around like he was baseball's playboy and all that [ __ ] i know you guys didn't like that [ __ ] you were looking for something it was the same thing it was it was this envy it was the same thing with bonds when bob's got oh this he's an [ __ ] sometimes he did something is that you see these guys you look for something to take and now you got it and now you're just gonna stick on to it and that's what that's what my problem is with the whole hall of fame the whole the whole system yeah you got a bunch of you got a bunch of freaking nerds you got a bunch of nerds who got bullied by guys like this growing up and this is how they stick it to them oh yeah well i'm not gonna you're not gonna get my vote you know the funny thing i'm telling you like when you look at that list i mean gary sheffield's a hall of famer gary chef is a hall of famers mcguire sosa schilling clemens they're all hall of famers and to to joke around and act like they're not because of a steroid usage at some point in their career because it's obvious barry bonza to take steroids his whole career it's obvious that most of these guys didn't take steroids their whole career that stuff's obvious but they were they were some of the best pitchers and hitters in the history of major league baseball but i mean leaving leaving that at that i got something funny to bring up because i didn't think it would happen this quickly marcus strowman uh stroh is gonna end up hurting his chances of getting a major deal no he already hurt them he's continuing to do it no no serious organization this dude is going to end up on the on the colin kaepernick level of things he really is i don't think he's getting out of baseball not even in the best way though so joe killer joe said earlier to me he goes pete what he's what's going to happen soon he's going to see the met signing golf man or siana visa and he's going to start calling them racist my man likes a post just now that says at stro no shocker the mets prefer the white guys over you what are you thinking in your mind nobody's taking here's my thing i would love to sit down with marcus stroman about you want to see what that's what i would say to him i would say marcus you are a terrific athlete a very talented pitcher very talented why are you allowing [ __ ] to affect the person you are you have serious issues my friend stay off twitter so you sign that and the fact that he's the type of guy that feels the need to try to shun regular everyday people you know how many people say look how much did you make last year man man the dude bags groceries he's 18 years old what's your problem you're a major league ball player go be a ball player no that's it anyone who disagrees with his line of thinking and that's like i think i said would you want him on yankees no no no yeah no i think he did whatever i also respond i said i would capital that as a hell no yeah no i don't want to do nowhere near the yankees what's that what's sad is what's sad is you could you could actually ask me the same question two years ago when he was coming off a four-plus era on toronto and i would have told you and i would have told you yeah i want to give german a shot because i really liked him in toronto and i said you know what he's a small guy i was like but his kid has so much freaking heart he's a dog out there he's tough i was i really liked him i was like yeah i was like if you would ask me back then i would have been like yeah let's do it then the whole thing came up when he was on the training block and the yankees were one of the people that people were saying like oh they're considering it they were considering it or whatever that year we could have gotten strowman we could have not gotten stronger we could have gone we could have not gotten i think you talked himself out of the yankees interest to be honest if we would have gotten him i would have been happy that year all right but he started chirping during the trading block and it didn't happen now clearly some people like people say oh well you know casper said that they you know they didn't see anything that they thought would have made them better and that's why they didn't make the move he happened to be one of the players that was moved he took it personal that they didn't say that they didn't feel like he would make them better or whatever clearly strowman wanted to be a yankee he wanted to be a yankee when he got traded from toronto he thought there was a there was a point in time that season where he thought for sure he was a yankee and then he realized he wasn't yeah he ended up being being a met yeah yeah but the talking and the constant chirping and yapping because you took it personal whatever it's just it's immature it doesn't endear you not i mean i don't care if you're if you endear yourself to yankee fans or not we don't give a [ __ ] you don't play for us but it doesn't endear you to just fans in general like you gotta look at organizations that are like clean you know i'm saying like you know organizations that just they're really you know on top of their the business of baseball if they're looking at you right now they got to really take a step back and say like but do we really need this head case here like yeah if he's is he going to get into an argument with somebody they're going to fight with the guys in the media is he going to fight with some fans is he going to like do we need that if if why do you think st louis went and grabbed steven matt's just like that or whatever some people say that st louis was still monitoring strowman as of today i don't think they make a play for him why why do you need that instead yeah i don't no i'm like um uh i i actually just this the first time i looked at like his likes on his i'm like i'm like almost in like a world of amazement here yeah people hate him like you because of your skin color i'm like that's not no no he likes a lot of stuff he likes a lot of stuff like that because he feels like does it give him like like confidence to keep doing this type i don't understand i'm very confused here and it's not see that's the thing is like i know like some people say oh of course you're gonna tell him that oh he gotta shut up but why does he have to shut up he shouldn't have to shut up he should be able to speak up not even i would say this bro i've said this about trevor bauer last year so don't come to me with that [ __ ] like oh you would you wouldn't say no i would because i said it to trevor bauer who is a white starting pitcher in the major leagues and a way better starting pitcher than strowman is i told him that he should have shut up last year when they were doing all the tweeting right all the videos because now it talks like he was actually oh yeah yeah but but i'm even though even with the sexual assault now it looks like he's actually right yeah so you know he was defending is that that he actually didn't do it but you see that that that all of a sudden i guess the right people got to trevor and when the whole sexual allegation [ __ ] came out that he was talking talking talking somebody must have got them and say you know what yup just be quiet stop talking stop or whatever let everything play out and then you'll be able to come back with it and now if he does get fully exonerated and all that which is that what that's what it looks like right now yep now he can come back and say whatever the [ __ ] he wants yeah and he's going to because he already started you know what i mean he's pretty confident because he already kind of started yeah now he can come back and say whatever he wants and you're not gonna be able to say nothing and that's what strongly could do the same thing though what do you sit there and be like bro you're you know you're saying [ __ ] about like the biggest market in the planet bro i would have taken him out literally like he's calling mets fans racist he's liking post that says there's a there's a majority of mets fans that are racist he said that about the fans he liked it so writing on the wall stro going elsewhere it's a shame most of ny wants him there's a there's a subset of racist fans that screw any of his comments towards him not being able to handle new york which is false and he likes oh that's he liked that tweet also i didn't see that i'm just like yeah but there's a ton of them there's a i didn't know this there i i just the first time i looked at this dude's likes i'm like i'd want this dude nowhere near this club here's another one no no he can't wait for me to go out there and prove all the haters wrong they're only hating on you because you're a skin color all right what what what fans i mean who are these people it has nothing to do they don't like marcus strowman because he has a small man syndrome he if i was blind if i was blind i would have a problem with marcus it's it's the attitude it's the attitude it's the attitude and that and i'm not about guys like tory hunter exactly no dory hunter talked about um there not being enough black players in baseball he talked about he talked about issues but he worried about it the right way or how about this how about how about andrew mccutchen andrew mccutchen cause he was like they shouldn't make me you know take my my dreads off what i got i'm doing it but my thing is like andrew mccutchen has talked about there now cece's a bathtub about not being enough i have never seen them come out as like well the reason is because baseball's racist i have never heard them say that i have never heard them say well the fans are racist or this one's racist that they never there's things everything is racist yeah there's things about the there's things about the game that that are like how you say they limit the interest of like you know african-american kids to want to like come up in the game which doesn't make the game inherently racist there's just certain things about it that you if you made changes it would obviously appeal more if you made the game more accessible to people you know of african-american descent and inner cities and things like that or whatever you would be able to get more there's a lot of things like that there's a lot there's a lot but to say that oh it's like no no that's that's that's not true like cece sabathia just retired from the new york yankees we love that that man is a god here he is a god like don't don't start with that [ __ ] whatever because you're that's a battle you're gonna lose that is a battle you are going to lose we love cc sabathia luis severino is way darker than you are marcus strowman there are people there are people in this new york yankee fan base who would die for submarines for real huge severino fans huge huge huge i love the guy's energy i love what he brings inside trust me trust me i mean severino will have the stadium don't let severino come back and be halfway decent he's going to have the whole stadium freaking shaking more than coal would more than people love him they can't get enough of it right they look what are we talking about here like what are we don't do that don't do that because i could see if it like if it was something whatever pointed or whatever but it's like no marcus they're they're pursuing guys who are gonna cost around what you're gonna cost but probably give them more that's what they're doing it's called business it's called business not to mention that the guys are pursuing aren't gonna probably talk as much as you do yep that's another thing that you don't wanna that he doesn't freaking own up to he never owns up to it maybe the fact that you run your mouth non-stop is turning teams off because i know for a fact if i'm saint louis if i'm atlanta if i'm not i don't want that [ __ ] yep but i care about the business of baseball and i care about what my team looks like and with the product that we're putting on the field in front of our fans and presenting to the world like maybe you don't want that that whole thing that you did a couple weeks ago we're like oh i'm never going to the yankees i'm not cutting my dreads i'm not taking off my do-rag um these tattoos ain't going anywhere you made a fool of yourself with that marcus you made it for yourself i i named like four or five yankees right at the top of my head that had tattoos all over the place yep there's nothing the yankees have no rule about wearing something over your hair under your hat luke voigt wears a headband tyler wade wore a headband plenty of guys were yeah the do-rag thing is stupid the du-rag that was very stupid blue rack comic was was ignorant on your part but not even you know that was ignorant well hey one of the things i talk about a lot is that i i talk about that a lot a lot of people make comments and they get called racist or this or that a lot of it is actually ignorance a lot of that's what it was actually pure ignorant racist is different when you're racist you can't hide your racism you know what i mean i'm not gonna i'm not gonna name a certain person out there right now that called satchel paige the great negro of his time which i've never heard in my lifetime to me that that's that's a hard limit of of actually somebody slipping up because there's tendencies there that's like calling people of color like well with the colored people over there yeah you don't say that nowadays if that that's natural out of your mouth you are a racist there's no way of denying that when you use in terms of the 1950s that are derogatory towards people that that's tough that's a tough one to fight especially in america when it was a black and white thing that that's a tough thing to argue but when you're like well marcus strowman is doing i'm like man i see it right now he already had another tweet in there talking about kevin goffman getting 175 million or so but strowman's a better pitcher so what should he get then and i'm like bro i can't wait to see what you signed for i can't wait to see who gives you money but there's what people don't understand is that there's there's a whole other side to this when it comes to business he's gonna make it about race watching when he eventually signs he's gonna make it a huge race thing he probably will 100 percent 100 because he's already making it about race judging by the tweets that judging by the tweets that he's liking but i'm i i couldn't disagree more i'm sorry i couldn't disagree more and just i don't know if you if marcus strowman ever saw this if somebody ever shows i'm a person of color right now i got my bright lights on me in the living room and stuff like that we're filming a podcast so i look a lot lighter probably than than but trust me if we saw each other in person marcus me and you are the same color bro like trust and believe a person of color just like you this is not about that it is not about that and i'm somebody i am somebody in the past who has literally said you know certain things like hey you know it's harder for you know latino managers to get to get gigs coming out of retirement and things like that when they retire off the field why does it take so so much longer for them to get shots to you know manage and to do things like that or why is it that like some latinos or or african americans will do really well in a peripheral coaching job but then they'll just disappear off the face of the earth yeah i i speak out and i'm very vocal about things like that we did on this podcast we did on this podcast yes we did we did it and we did we but we did it even before that when we were talking about tony we were talking about tony pena we were like tony fell off the face of the earth and he's an amazing freaking coach he should get a shot you should get a shot at something some sort of coach listen this is the podcast where we've literally i'm telling you all we do is keep it real when we said oh it could be oh by the way uh marcus i got uh children and a woman who was as dark as you two bro so in case in case you want to pick on in case you want to pick on the italian dude here you know you probably ain't going to go too far on that one family nah you're going to look crazy you're going to look crazy because his family is like but this is that's my thing it's like bro it's that's that's just it's ignorance man don't do that and and my biggest problem with this and i hate to go political i'ma just for one just one statement and i'm leaving at that but my biggest problem with this is that when you make everything about race you weaken the arguments that that are actually about it are true when you turn everything into a racist thing then it just seems like you're crying wolf and that's what pisses me off corrupt that's the pistol because there could be somebody out there in some sports league in some situation who's getting discriminated against because of the color of their skin being held down yeah that's right but not but not you but not you and when and when you do that when you do that and make your little tiff about race when it's not it weakens the person's argument who [ __ ] actually is about it and that's what pisses me off yeah because you as an african-american man as a person of color because you're also puerto rican you don't like to whatever but you're also puerto rican so you as a person of color knowing the struggles that people of color have you come out and are gonna make this about race knowing that there's people out there battling real race [ __ ] like stupid bro that's that's and on top of that and on top of that um i don't know much about this so it's me talking out of ignorance when it comes to marcus strowman but i would love to know what he's done for foundations i would love to know what his background is with inner city sports i would love to know what he's done in that area and the reason why i'm not attacking him for not doing it because i don't know i don't know if he has but somebody who speaks that loudly you should be leading that charge then you should be leaving that charge i've seen young black players yeah i've seen him do a couple of things so i'll give him credit there i've seen him do like a couple of couple a couple of things in terms of like giving back and like community outreach and enrichment and things like that and he should do a lot i mean so i'll give him me i'd be i'd be breaking my back doing stuff for my community if that was the case you know what i mean no doubt about especially if i'm getting a hundred plus million dollar deal very likely i mean yeah you better believe i'm finding areas um and and talking to people that we can build things there or or build stadiums or build fields have youth programs have grants for colleges so many different things that you can actually do to really assist in that in that process um so there's just a lot there so i just wanted to bring that up because it's funny because joe actually said it earlier he's like watch very soon you're going to see it start becoming about race and this whole thing that he hasn't had a deal yet and the pitchers are getting it and unfortunately that's what he's doing so yeah but he doesn't it's crazy like how can how you can be a major league baseball player a young major league baseball player who quote unquote should understand the game better as much or as better than anyone else and he doesn't even understand his own market the reason that marcus strowman isn't signed yet is because he's viewed as one of the better starters in the market the market never starts at the top yep it always starts in the middle or towards the bottom so they go there's teams who know that they're completely out of the running for certain guys and so they start at the middle or the bottom you think carlos correa is worried right now that baez is getting all this attention no because he knows that he's carlos freaking correa and he's viewed as way better than javi baez and so he is going to get his when javi baez is out of the way let the teams who are in on that level get out of the way you think robbie ray cares that the mets are talking to gosmen and that all these people are talking to god you think robbie ray's at home worrying biting his nails like oh my god maybe they don't want a cowboy on their team no right no cowboy gonna do in new york he knows that they're getting the middle tier out of the way they got verlander out of the way you got thor out of the way you got mats out of the way you got e-rod out of the way they're getting all these people all the way strowman is actually viewed by most of all most of all the baseball insiders and analysts as one of the better starters available this offseason yeah of course we already admitted that we said that already if he would just shut the [ __ ] up his market probably would be three times what it is right now but i mean i hate to break it to you bro like a lot of teams just don't want to deal with that i look if if i if i'm a team or if i'm i don't know i know if i'm if i'm in a big market i'm sorry you could say whatever you want he's not that good where i like i'm d i'll deal with it i'm sorry well you'll deal with it because it's not it's not it's not korea where korea can do all of that whatever he wants i was talking when joe said it the other day joe was like you know how long has he or he said something about i'm like well the reason why i wouldn't want it for five years is because i don't think he's gonna last because pitchers his size usually don't and that's not a knock on him unless you're like a pedro martinez but pedro is even bigger than strowman was so i mean your tim lindsay comes these guys fall off you scott kasmir's they fall off the small you don't usually see pictures that are what five eight five nine whatever he is um they probably got him listed like five ten five eleven but he's not he's like five eight you know pitchers like that don't normally last yeah i know he's not a gay he's not a gasser he doesn't throw flames but you know if he lasts five years i'll actually be shocked and if he signs a five-year deal if he has five good years i'll be amazed i'll be amazed and here's the thing most most baseball people don't expect marcus strowman to have the the last two projections are never that great the last two years that he had nobody's projecting him to do that over the next five years and yet and yet he's still projected to get a deal worth at least five years so what does that what does that tell you mark is that that you have value in the market that you've earned what you're about to receive again if you would just stop like it's like it's like you're you're like self-destructive like you you want to do damage to your own reputation right now because you're not going to damage the mets reputation right they just signed they just signed starling martay to a contract where he makes almost 20 million a year he's darker than you he's older than you like what are you talking about so they're racist they could have went and got comfortable then conforto's light skin why didn't they get comfortable they could have said hey [ __ ] it we're going to italian why not yeah no they went and got the best they went and got the guy who they thought was best for the job that's what they do that's what most teams try to do marcus i don't think it's a freaking race thing actually i thought the mets really enjoyed him in his time there and for him to start going down this path it's just like if i'm a team looking at him it's like bro this is how quickly this guy can turn on us do we really want to do this no it's a risk it's a let me put it like this this is the best way to put it right it's a it's a not needed risk because he doesn't have to do it yes it's an unnecessary risk but my thing too with him is i'm sorry i see your numbers you have a you have a couple of good years i get it i understand that but to sit there and be like i as a owner would bring in marcus strowman you have to be elite for me to disregard everything else i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you in i'm sorry you could see it however you want i'm not bringing you in i'm not bringing you with this added [ __ ] it's not worth it you're not worth it that's what i'm saying you're putting you're putting you're adding you're adding baggage baggage for no reason you're adding baggage for no reason bro and that's what if i was his agent i would have definitely bought it as soon as free as soon as free agency started out by listen marcus what we're going to do is we're going to log you out of twitter we are going to we're going to keep you up on on instagram but we're going to we're going to manage that for you we're going to put up you know pictures of you working out you know going out having fun but you know in terms of like you like you know going out there commenting on things or whatever we don't think that's the best thing let me tell you why they can like agents literally have this information at their fingertips i don't but if you guys want to google it this this this is googleable you can go and prove where a player's comments during free agency hurts their market and things like this is a fact i'm not making this up i'm sure his agents could bring this information to him and say look marcus we just don't need but no they let him do whatever keep his stuff and he's out there on twitter you know getting in fights with yankee fans or whatever talking about everybody good in this whatever mind you your team was way worse than the the yankees were a dumpster fire this year and when you put us next to you guys we look like [ __ ] adonises like i don't know how you throw stones when you live in a house that's that made of glass but that's fine you wanted to do that okay but that was just to be tip of the iceberg with your twitter bs now you're going after the organization that you just finished fishing for alluding to them possibly being racist because they're they're looking at kevin gossman and robbie ray over you why can't they just like those pictures better i don't understand it's just um it's just bad man it's just bad overall i mean like you said i if i was his agent i tell him flat out bro can't do it can't do it but you know well see um you know there's obviously a lot more to talk about this season um i probably probably gave marcus stroman too much time but um but uh yeah i mean probably gave him a little too much time there but i mean it is what it is we gotta we still the yankees still got a lot of moves to do a lot of moves to make um and when it happens it happens we'll be there to cover it but um we hit another goal today we hit 6 300 subs um i know we had a goal of 7 000 by january actually had a goal of six thousand by january but we've been rising so much through the ranks that we actually had to push that back to be even higher so for all the fans out there that are continuing to support and subscribing telling their friends and family about us i keep talking about it uh january's almost here so you're gonna see ny news tv for what it is and um all the other fun stuff we have coming your guys way so i mean stay tuned for that and um subscribe now put those

deal a little bit though so they they pass another skit all you guys know what i'm talking about they're passing out the skit all we know that so anyway let's jump into the new york yankees let's jump into what i talked about in the original in the original thumbnail of this video the disconnect between the new york yankees and their fan base because i wanna i to harp on this a little bit because there's a disconnect and some of it's the fans fault some of us the yankees but they did a great job with pr the yankees have done a tremendous job with pr they have done a great job with pr they've done an amazing job on the public relations side getting the fans to truly buy in to what they're doing all right and if anybody does any super chats or any questions i will get to them as soon as i can but let me finish let me finish this up here first and then we'll get into all the questions we got time to talk today i'm chilling look you know your boys healing up i had my first uh uh um physical therapy i'm all right life is beautiful life is beautiful we're all alive we're all doing a chat today can't be mad about too much right so let's get into it guys i've been talking about this for a while if you have followed me on this page you guys have heard me for a very long time talk about the obvious disconnect between the fan base and the front office now should the fan base dictate every move the yankees make no of course not but the fan base is pretty knowledgeable on what this team needs because who pays more attention to than fans do fans are right there fans are watching yes we don't get the inside information yes we don't see what happens in a clubhouse yes we don't see the type of things that you know maybe we need to have a little more insight on to make certain decisions but for years now during these chats um during my regular videos whether it was me doing a video france is doing a video or be doing a video felix doing his videos doesn't matter who it was we've really shared the same message that the yankees we know what they need to do but the yankees have not done it and we're kind of seeing that trend in that direction today i would say and you guys tell me if i'm wrong or not i would say roughly 70 percent of the fan base wanted aaron boone gone because they have felt he is not the proper manager for this club what do the yankees do to start the offseason boom bring aaron boone right back and they tell us to our face he's one of the best managers in the game they have told us to our face he's not a puppet they have told us to face analytics or not making all the decisions they have told us to her face well you know ask brian i told him you go out there brian you go out there and you get joey gallo even if we go over what do the yankees do brian cashman comes out and goes no you know we stayed under the luxury tax we gave up some more guys that he pay everything we stayed under so not only is there a disconnect between the team and the fan base there's a disconnect up top we also heard i'm just gonna throw quotes at it because this is so damn obvious now we have also heard brian cashman come out and go well um no aaron knew aaron boone knew before he signed here that phil nevin his best friend was gone aaron boone comes out 20 minutes later and goes well if i knew that i don't think i would be here right now what excuse me sir and what are we getting again this off season we are getting the same exact messaging once again we're being told guys we will spend all the money in the world we'll do we got there is no limits now by all means should the new york yankees come out and say we're not going to spend of course not because you don't know what could fall to you but there is a severe disconnect among this club and its fan base the fan base i've been saying for years we need some speed we need athletes we needed a lefty batter so which brian cashman did go do we need versatility we need guys who go first to third guys remember let's get those likes up i want to try to hit 200 likes while we're in here right now we're about we're about to hit over 60. got almost 200 people in here so let's get those likes up and share please share greatly appreciate it but that's where we are we got the fan base feeling that we know what this team needs to do but they have not done it the fans have had an idea of what this team needs to do for years now i'm not talking about this off season and we're going to get to this off season right after this but there is a major disconnect here how do you fix that i don't know they've told us analytics isn't playing the pure role of everything here but it's obvious it is it's about as clear as day it's about as clear as day and unfortunately you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into this idea you have a lot of the fan base who has bought into when the yankees will come out and say hey guys we tried it didn't work out they'll sit there and argue with you well they tried well the yankees tried they went out there to get somebody so with that being said let's talk about the fan base a little bit and where we are as a whole because i've seen this message a lot yesterday black friday wasn't too much of a black friday shopping in a sense of saving for the new york mets they go out there they make multiple moves escobar connor and of course starling martay who was the big drop of the night the cherry on top of the knife for the new york mets and i see many comments and many tweets by yankee fans saying all the yankees aren't gonna spend that much money oh but he's 33 years old oh but the yankees didn't they weren't really serious about him were they this this that that is the part of the fan base who will never dare to put enough pressure on this ball club where it needs to be and unfortunately that mindset and that idea is what the beat riders are also pushing the majority of them it's what the yes network tells you it's what all the wfans and all the stations out there talking about the yankees that have a platform we're not gonna do that here now by all means if we have a teammate who feels that way they're allowed to do what they want they're allowed to come on ny news and say it because that's their realness that's what they really believe in that's okay i'm here to tell you what pete's realness is ny news real talk for the real fan real talk for the real fan that's what you're always gonna get here so when i'm told and i'm looking at these comments dude is 33 years old you wouldn't give him four years because he's too old have you seen martay's body type have you seen marte's body type fam if you think 19 million a year for stalin marte is a bad signing you're out your freaking mind and if you also have the idea that that's out of the range for the yankees they go like another club i gotta keep it real with you for a second if 19 million is too much for the yankees to get an elite center fielder great speed great shape great defense great good arm great speed lead off hitter he checks every single box if you guys remember i talked about the video the other day that will never happen of course cedric mullins but i talked about it because it was news and it's exciting and it would make sense those are the type of guys that check every single box the yankees and yankee fans feel it was too old he was too old he was too old because apparently yankee fans have forgot that we are a win-now team yankee fans have forgot that we need to win a world series yesterday and when you lose that mindset you have now given in to new ownership you have now given in to the hal steinberg and new york yankees you have now given in to being mediocre you have now given in to the excuses you have now given in to second third fourth and fifth place that's what you have now given into so by all means by all means does this really affect the yankees in a major way that they can't have a good offseason no no so maybe there is a slight overreaction and that's okay guys here's another thing here's another thing folks and this is something that a lot of yankee fans love to tell people you're overreacting sure the yankee fans they're allowed to yankee fans are allowed to overreact we go to a ball game and it's like going to disney world we have every right to overreact not me personally because i i don't look am i upset about marta yes i think the yankees could have made that deal i think they could have went a different route but that's what i talked about uh plan one a two a three a c a four a a one one a one b one c there's a lot of different plans the yankees can do to have a terrific ball club for 2022. that is where my problem comes in because again yes is getting martay something where the yankee fans should just be overly angry about or overly mad about or be so upset that they feel like nothing could work is that is that potentially something that the yankees could look at and say this is is something that uh um nothing we do now is gonna work because the mets got martay so oh no we're in trouble no and that is not the way you should run your organization so i understand where some of these yankee fans go guys you're overreacting that's okay but to make the little minor excuses that you're seeing yankee fans make is horrible it is horrible it's pathetic it's terrible you cannot do that let me tell you why and let's get into what the yankees may or may not do we'll also start getting into your guys question so i'll start answering your guys questions and go from there because here's the problem okay do you guys remember and i was talking to my good friend rob before this do you guys remember when aaron boone had a press conference and he was explaining that um g and carlos stanton is a unicorn because and i'm not even making a joke out of this i know i make a joke about the unicorns but stay with me for a second he was making the point that giancarlo stan has it all the guy does everything he could do everything he's like a unicorn he's like that guy he's magical when he's hot he's magical he's he's something else to watch that's the yankees franchise guys this is what bothers me that's the yankees franchise their franchise is a unicorn in that sense not unicornios they're not gonna get hopefully not eating unicorn ears all year that is the new york yankees organization let me explain to you they got money no matter whether hal says it or not they got money they got prospect capital a ton of prospect capital they got everything as a general manager when you go to the new team like the yankees you get look we got money to spend we got prospects to deal we need to fix a few positions and then on top of that on top of that oh you have an unbelievable stock pile of free agents and players that are available via trade think about that for a second again repetitive pete here but you got one a one b one c one d one e one f one g blah blah blah blah blah blah let the wall keep going and have a different plan and it's gonna end up good better than how you started in 2021 that's the problem that is my issue you need to be aggressive here you know when you hide in the bushes so to say do you understand when you when you when you duck for cover because you're looking over the safari you're the lioness you're ready to prowl and hunt you're looking you're waiting you're ducking you're waiting for something to get closer to you if you're doing that for the big catch cool and i'll play devil's advocate here maybe that's what the yankees are doing maybe that's what the yankees are doing because let's let's be real let's look at the whole picture marcus simeon isn't signed seeger is not signed corey is not signed and story's not signed the mariners just got frasier teams are making moves right for the yankees very much you can sit low you could beat a lioness here right you could prowl you could say oh look at this look at this that buffalo's getting close whatever the hell they eat and then boom hope you're not wearing headphones i was probably loud you could sit there and wait you could sit there and wait but that's for the big fish that is for the big fish the yankees can't just sign a big fish to say that's it that's an off season can not work that way seeger makes the yankees a little better but he doesn't do much correa makes the yankees better but he doesn't do much story and simian make the yankees better but it doesn't do it all these cats are out here posting videos of aaron hicks looking like an old man instead of feel making a dive hey look at this guys oh we got a centerfielder baby you guys buying the [ __ ] oh no this cat's out here posting videos of aaron hicks fan aaron hicks doubles in the gap to left field he sucked the bat out and the ball barely went over to do attack should have been should have been caught in center field you saw the route he took on that ball he looked like [ __ ] my man looked like he gained 28 32 pounds and it's slower than he was before he came back hey you cat these cats are listening to these fools they're bragging about it look at our center fielder are we doing what are we doing and these same cats are saying martay's too old these cats are telling you aaron hicks is better than morty these cats are telling you you not me you these are the cats you guys are subscribing to oh let me run let me write these guys quick they're the best oh my god oh let me go buy their [ __ ] oh oh these are the cats you listening to this is why ny news is doing what it's doing because enough is enough of the [ __ ] these cats are pushing aaron hicks on you my man looked like he gained 30 pounds in center field slower [ __ ] to the ball made a bad slide and made the catch and he gets a pound in his chest like look at me what are you doing aaron hicks but wait wait wait these same people fans or whoever these same people will tell you aaron hicks is better than mate and they wouldn't have signed martay because he's 32 years old yankees gave your boy seven years the yankees gave you a boy seven years and he get an aaron look no no disrespect hicks has gotten worse year after year he's gotten heavier year after year he's gotten worse defensively year after year i'm gonna get to the super chats guys i just gotta make this point because it cracks me up year after year that dude got bigger he's gotten slower all right year after year but these same cats to tell you stalin martay who is ripped from head to toe is too old my man still burning on the bases all right fam let me get to these questions let me get to these questions i can't i can't i can't it's your boy i greatly appreciate the super chat fam remember when you warned yankee fans that it wouldn't be a surprise to you if they they're cheap and didn't go out and help go out to help become better this offseason i do it's your boy i was i i said that before everybody else before was cool for the beat riders and everybody else to talk about the yankees not spending 300 plus million i was the only guy saying it because again i was told by four people including a fifth recently but i also said maybe they get a 265 maybe i didn't know that but they're not gonna do what everybody expected and not gonna drop this monster contract on anybody and i the people i was told this that told me this i truly believe i believe them deeply if they told me something right now i tell you that's how i feel about him ella yankeeking says well well well it looks like justin was right since 2018 cashman is bottom five gm but no justin is crazy no well i think you're justin i don't think you're right about that i still don't think you're right about that i don't think brian cashman is a top bottom gm i don't think brian cash is a bottom gm he's done a lot of good moves at the end of the day if it comes to spending that's not brian cashmere that's hal steinberg my problem with brian cashman is he holds on to guys way too long doesn't mean he's a terrible gm it just means he has belief in his system and that's okay but when you're the new york yankee you can't necessarily build your club that way you have to have you have to have you have to have a mindset of certain guys we want to hold on to but we cannot risk keeping them in the name of getting a robbie ray a cl um uh garrett cole you can't hold on to him in those type of positions it's the same thing right now when we talk about matt olsen you got yankee oh no i wouldn't do all that well you got to give up something and you can't be in love with prospects enough to miss out on that so i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say he's a bottom 5 gm i wouldn't say that at all brand especially speaking way too much facts right now brandon this just obvious [ __ ] you know what i'm saying this is just obvious stuff it's just that we are living in a time where fans are eating it up and that's the crazy thing guys if you don't mind please please please please hit the like button i greatly appreciate that we are about halfway to 200 of where i wanted to be so if you guys don't mind please go ahead and do that i would greatly greatly appreciate it and we will continue on let me just see i got a message here all right perfect um yeah but i've seen so many messages guys and i'm not looking to i'm not looking to i'm not looking to [ __ ] on any yankee fans i'm not looking to to do anything like that my whole thing for when it comes to everything that we're talking about here is this is you can't say not to saying that martay was too old to sign to a four-year deal i i don't under i don't get that i don't get that i really i really do not understand that at all to sit there and talk about marte's age and this a win now club what does that mean this team needs a win now this team can't sit back and go all right maybe in 2024 we're gonna win they can't do that they can't do that anthony with the super chat my good friend thank you i think i'm more frustrated that the yankees have been relatively quiet not so much at the met sign martay who would have been a great addition to the yankees hope something happens with them soon well that's what i'm trying to say anthony is that look i'm not i don't think any yankee fan should be you know saying oh the off season's over because we didn't get marty that's not it the problem overall is how quiet the yankees have been as of right now we stand to have aaron hicks batted back in center field and gary sanchez back as the catcher after what gary sanchez has done guys bear with me again for a second after everything gary sanchez has done you still have a fan base who will tell you they can't miss out on his production who is better than him defense fam defense is production how in the hell can you keep this guy as the catcher at his ball club i i i don't understand the mindset of many people in this fan base i don't get it i don't understand it people act like defense has no importance over being a catcher defense is production this guy caught a ball 25 friggin feet from home plate and never tagged the base runner this guy could barely block a ball in the dirt pitchers are probably scared to throw a ball in the dirt this guy towards the end of the year had three starting pitchers the top three arguably in the rotation not want to throw to him this guy got a pop-up call to him went backwards turned the wrong way went back forward and never even touched the ball this guy has not started the playoff game in two years was gary sanchez a rookie last year am i missing something have we not had more than enough time to see who this player is have we not have more than enough time to see who this player is i am completely utterly shocked by what a lot of this fan base is preaching to fans a lot of the people with a platform is preaching to fans you're not gonna see it on this platform i tell you right now we're just gonna keep it real with you you're not gonna see it here real talk for the real fan that's it i don't get it i don't get it me and francis said it for a minute we said look you're gonna know quickly what the yankees are really up to by the little tiny moves they make they ain't done jack [ __ ] the yankees could have went out there and said all right we're going to trade for a catch we're going to sign a free agent we're going to do one of these things just to give the fan base an idea of our this is the direction we headed as of right now fans have every right to be upset because guess what we're standing pat right now can a lot change of course we got the non-tender right here i wouldn't be shocked if something happens if they make a trade or two because again remember when you have the non-tender here if another team non-tender somebody that you want you got to have room for them so i could see the yankees make a move to clear up a little more space i could see that happening but the yankees really going to sit back and give gary sanchez more money for what and it's obvious the last few years we don't have coaches that have enough balls to say all right hold on this [ __ ] needs to work we don't have that it's obvious we don't have that so that's my thing we obviously have not had that we don't have that bring simeon to the bronx thank you for the super chat sign eddie rosario put him in center field no way in hell a contended team can depend on hicks to be your starting center fielder 100 love the content well i thank you for that my friend and look man that's the thing you hit it right in the that's why i love i love my people that come in these chats i love and look guys the yankee fans that think like us that want to win now we're the majority we're still the majority we're still the majority ny news is going to be so damn big it's going to make your guys head spin soon enough okay where the majority but you hit it right in the head right on the head the yankees are one of the only teams that will tell you flat out after teams that want to win that will tell you flat out after injuries all right well look we're getting severino back so don't worry about anything all right guys don't worry we think we think gary sanchez is going to improve he's worked so hard this offseason aaron hicks did well in in winter ball we know he's ready to give us that bats he's going to have a terrific season they're the only win-now team who will tell you that their excuses that you know is [ __ ] is what's going to make them better because guys again i will never change my opinion of this if the yankees go out there they eventually get a guy like sager seeger but they still have hicks and center and gary behind the plate what the hell is the point what the hell's the point what the hell is the point brandon then joey vlogs thank you so much for the super chat i appreciate it jonathan jonathan alvarez i'm not calling i got i got to put you on the spot he says yes we had a majority but jonathan you are a fan who goes all the way back with me all the way back to when i broke the news about gary sanchez nobody else broke that news i broke the news about gary sanchez about the team being upset with how he came into training out of shape he didn't hit the weight they wanted i broke that news but i'm asking jonathan because i'll tell you why jonathan was a huge gary sanchez fan i bet jonathan doesn't want him behind a plate in 2022. jonathan has had enough and jonathan you can throw it in the chat and darius darius glover my good friend he said the non-tender deadline is tuesday to 30th that is right tuesday to 30th so it wouldn't shock me to see the yankees make a move or two before that but jonathan knows jonathan was a big fan he was a big fan of gary he he he remembers all my videos he remembers all of them many people in here that go back with me you know three or four years remember all that stuff that's right it's so dumb that they treat guys coming back from injury as they were trade acquisitions that is so friggin true and that's what the yankees do the yankees have done that for a minute now brandon and joey vlogs i greatly appreciate that my friend yankees need to fix the issues and get a first baseman and a shortstop who can provide uh provide defensive defensively and offensively it's not how if not how should sell the team yankees need to fix the issues to get a first baseman in the shore someone can provide yes 100 true 100 true and that's the thing man the yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up yankee fans know what's up they know what needs to happen we all know what needs to happen we know what needs to happen it's that simple we understand that the problem is going out and doing it so when yankee fans sit back again and they're saying oh we didn't sign marte oh boohoo to the fans who upset guys it's not about the fans being upset it's that we have a lot of [ __ ] to do we have a lot of [ __ ] to do if signing seeger is all we had to do then all right this would be me right now yeah guys you know um something's gonna happen give it a little time don't be panicking it's all right you know it's only it's only uh it's not only about to be december don't worry about it guys it's all right things will happen that would be me right now but that ain't what this team needs and everybody knows that this team needs a catcher they need a center field or at least a backup they need a first baseman they need a shortstop they need pitching those are five main spots and you know the scary thing where is it at guys up the middle catcher shortstop center field winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle winning teams are strong up the middle okay can't have gary sanchez your catcher you can't have aaron hicks i'll be nice you can't have aaron hicks as the full-time center fielder and you got to have a short stop who at least can feel the ball very well you got to have all that if the yankees don't do that there's too much that's too much so you can't sit there and oh they're waiting in the bushes for deals no no no can't happen like that can't happen that way it can't happen that way it can't happen like that and you guys know that give me one second guys i just got a message i wanted to take a look at one second guys all right cool cool cool uh tyler i appreciate that the yankees are serious about winning the yankees are serious about winning if sanchez's catcher hits it i'm assuming you mean not serious about winning uh catcher hicks in center field and torrez's team period yeah i mean 100 no no i think i know what tyler man tyler meant not serious um he just missed that word there i'm pretty sure uh knowing tyler i'm pretty sure because he has the same mindset as where i've been but that's where it is that's where it is right now um i'm trying i'm trying to corroborate a rumor here that i just got from somebody else um hold on one second guys so i i just got a i'll wait to corroborate it a little more but my understanding is somebody just said that the yankees actually and not somebody but i obviously don't want to say who the person is but um i just got a message saying that the yankees have actually talked to the braves about dansby swanson so i don't know how much legs that has i don't know how realistic that actually is but um give me a second and we will i want to corroborate that with a few other people first before um we go anywhere else with that but my understanding is that the yankees have have had a conversation i don't know how much it is but i've had a conversation about dansby swanson let's go to the super chat ro thompson the family right here the problem is the yankees have a plethora of issues and it appears as if they aren't operated with any sense of urgency that's it raw raw you hit it right on the head that that's it that's the thing right there you could be the lioness you could wait for the prey to get close you could wait for the slick move but not when you got five or six moves you got to make not when you got that many not when you got that many jonathan alvarez family from way back in the day i wish sanchez nothing but success but it can't be on this club yankees need to prioritize a defensive first catcher i'm over it jonathan i'll pat myself on the back i'll pat felix on the back and tell you guys that we've said it for years now because we have that that's not even taking credit for get credit i don't care about credit it was obvious it was obvious to me back in the day when i heard what i heard i was like oh [ __ ] they got a problem here and if you don't believe me you could go back to i think it was mlb.com scouting report on gary sanchez before he got there right before he got there my understanding of it was that even in a scouting report i read it recently this is before he came up and did what he did in the in the scouting report excuse me and the scouting reporter even says they don't know if he could consistently stay at catcher because of his work ethic or wanting to be a catcher the actual heart of wanted to be a catcher playing that position there was rumors that even then he wouldn't do it so we'll see yeah guys i'll be honest with you like i said before i'm i'm not gonna tweet that out as of right now just because i haven't cooperated with anybody else but the person who told me is is usually very very spot on so again that could just be a hey we want to check in to see what's available what options we have is it a possibility it could be one of those but that's again something that gm's do doesn't mean there's loads of interest it doesn't mean it's something that could happen but that that's exactly what a gm would do that's the type of moves gm's look to do you know you you figure out what's out there and what's a possibility so i'm sorry i'm just messaging back real quick um but again that's where it is and guys we have almost 300 people in here can we please get those likes up i would love to hit 200 today um i would love to hit 200 today while we're in here we probably got about 20 or so minutes to go and we will go from there sanchez bat aged 12 years in three years yeah there was there was definitely a little bit concerned there uh my concern is that cash probably not even on the hot seat considering they let him yeah i mean you know it's almost like family my understanding is and again i get some information on that i probably have a lot more information come next week um after i get back um after i get back from some travel which you guys will know a lot about what i'm doing uh probably on thursday night thursday night is it thursday yeah thursday night thursday night next week um you guys will probably know a lot of what's uh of what's going on and what i'm doing and and some pretty fun stuff that's going on next week um but i should get a lot of good information um out of all that stuff but yeah i mean i mean those are the those are those are the concerns right now who do i prefer in centerfield reynolds and mullins either one of them if that was the case either one of them could tell martay i would take him in a heartbeat but look let me even send something back to you guys if the yankees came today and they said all right look um maybe we add robbie ray maybe we had trevor story with that being said here's what we have to do though and we also add a decent a decent catcher center field we are gonna have floriel fight for that spot in spring training so there could be a a a platoon situation where we make that work and i'm i'm very much okay with that i'm very much okay with that and that's the thing that i've been telling people i'm not the yankee fan that's saying we need to get correa we need to get rey we need to get all the top guys if we don't do that i'm not angry we just have so many damn moves that we can make in an off season where there is loads of talent available free agency and via trade and you got the prospect capital to do it and you got the money to make signings when you can do all that you got to be able to go out there and do it it's as simple as that it's as simple as that so yeah yankee fans have every right in the world to be upset yeah i don't think mullins could happen and i'm just keeping it real i don't think mullins could happen i i don't i don't think mullins necessarily happens i don't think it would one because of what of what it would take on the yankees side and i don't see i don't see brian cashman ever giving up what it would take to get mullins to the rival orioles and by all means their rival because the only team they beat up on is the yankees so i don't think brian cashion wants to make that much better in the years to come when he got a lot of good guys coming up so you know what i mean we'll see what happens there darius says anything big likely comes today or tomorrow or today or tomorrow teams have until wednesday however uh teams have to get physicals and paperwork all done by wednesday at midnight which takes time that is correct so you're right you're definitely right you probably got today and tomorrow to really get things done and then you got all the work to do after that so you're probably looking at the weekend to be somewhat popular maybe monday a little bit to go from there mullins is a one-year wonder i think that's a hard one to say i think there might be a little bit of an adjustment period but i wouldn't necessarily say mullen's gonna be a one-year wonder yankee fans love to say that about players i noticed that robbie ray's a one-year wonder mullen's a one-year wonder reynolds isn't that good martay is too old blah blah blah blah blah but our guys are great come on fam come on stop it stop it stop it jonathan alvarez my good friend thank you so much again for the super chat fam cashman and hal are asleep while the other team's feasting on free agents and yankees will get up just in time to pick up the crumbs left over it's concerning man like i said if you if you're looking for the one big move you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you are looking for the one big move you could certainly be the lioness waiting for the hunt you can do that you could be the lioness waiting for the hunt if you're waiting for that one move you got every chance in the world and every opportunity in the world do that if you got multiple moves to make you really got to get a ball you really got to get a go on it you got to get a go on it because guys i could i could go over this in multiple different ways and i'll do it right after i read this super chat from li yankee king hey if i ran this team i would have already traded dj hicks stanton chapman holmes lucky peralta rodriguez tayon sanchez voigt brought in prospects to help us and i would have offered one year 30 million a story but li yankee king that makes no sense and i got to keep it real with you that makes no sense at all you're trading all of your good players away a lot of your salary i get that but you're trading a lot of your plays that help you win now for one guy that's not gonna help you win now because of all the moves you made lord

that was the expectation going into this well ella yankeeking has cracked my code i can't have him do a super chat and not answer it i can't so ella yankee king has cracked my code i can't be an [ __ ] like that i can't be an [ __ ] like that there he goes again ella yankee i also would have traded for heim yamamoto means signed rey signed judge and rizzo all that stuff's not that easy man all that stuff's not that easy so anyway i read it i read it lie i read it i read it i read it you got me you cracked my code thank you for supporting that wide news i greatly appreciate it jorge no no word on jose ramirez none none whatsoever no news at all jose ramirez i actually shocked i thought that would be i actually thought there would be a lot more rumors about jose ramirez but um no nothing at all yet so nothing at all yet on that one um let me see something here guys one second i just want to make sure i get updated where everything that i have right now um no that is nothing good okay all right all right all right all right cool cool cool cool um olsen bassett kelly marte is where i think the yankees are trying to shop those would all be terrific those would all be terrific those would all be terrific i don't even think hell knows how to run a business bro how do you throw how do you throw down like your dad 10 million to 5 billion he made a lot of mistakes how pony up you know it's hard look i understand one of the i understand you're in a big look i understand house thing you know you're in a big big shadow everybody expects you to be your father maybe you see things differently and that's okay so it's not about spending money it's about the way the yankees have spent the money so the payroll is still large but look at the way the yankees have spent the money that's the problem that's the problem that's the major issue it's not that the yankees are cheap or anything like that it's that they have spent the money the wrong way that's the problem the problem is how they've spent the money why do yankees not in on either floriel or suzuki suzuki i honestly i don't know much about floriel on the other hand i mean i would be happy with florio starting it's like i've told people before floriel bats low okay you bat him low in the order he has great speed he's gonna steal 20 plus bases i believe he's gonna hit 20 plus home runs because he got power like that to all fields plays a great defense has a great arm why would you not let a guy like this play at the major league level right now why would you not give him that opportunity over aaron hicks who is now playing winter ball you could show teams that look he's healthy he's playing maybe you could trade them maybe you could add a decent prospect maybe you could add a decent prospect and move on from tyler says sign vr who i would love sign seeger sign rey trade for olson midday madaya sign suzuki for center field trade sanchez get stallings in a trade you know that's a lot of moves there and a lot of different things that could happen but we'll see but but we'll see you know those are moves that could happen those are somewhat realistic a lot of those i don't know if they spend the money on both of those guys on sega and ray but they could but these are things that could happen so it's not like none of these things are unrealistic you know you talk about some of these trades and everybody feels like it's unrealistic it's not it's not necessarily unrealistic that's the thing that's the thing i don't see sure coming to new york unless the yankees blow them away and again guys i don't see that jonathan alvarez my fan my my my fam thank you so much i appreciate that man pete no matter what god is good and is always faithful facts that is 100 correct my friend that is 100 correct and i greatly appreciate that i greatly appreciate that um so let's see let's see let's see let's see let me just update this here i just got to keep checking my messages i am getting messages um right that's just my team nothing there nothing there all right cool um but we'll see man we'll see um yeah whoever just said uh gaussman to the mets per sources i don't know if it's done yet but i was told i think i said it once this uh once this started that gosmen to the mets is very likely i was told yesterday too they've been discussing a deal for a couple of days and a lot of people expected to get done so the mets may make another big deal today no this yankee team is not a world series team right now nowhere near it every other team is getting much better hey pete what would it take for the yankees to trade for joey bart involving gary sanchez well probably a ton because uh bart is likely gonna be the starting catcher um you know he's likely gonna get a chance to start um he's he's one of the top catching prospects in baseball i don't see any scenario where the giants give him up i don't see any especially not for gary sanchez the giants are looking to win a world series the yankee the giants are looking to win a world series so yeah adam king is likely just taking what i what i'm saying and and posting it because he's uh he's a little bit nuts he's a little bit nuts think a move happens before a lockout i actually do i do think a move happens before the lockout i do think a move happens before the lockout what move it is i don't know to be honest and to be honest rumors have been light rumors have been light usually by this time i get a lot of good information i haven't had much i got more information from other clubs than i've got mainly for the yankees so rumors have been light rumors have been light cohen's about to have another hold my beer yeah cohen's the type of dude that makes that makes deals like cracking uh walnuts and he just sits there down in peanuts and [ __ ] and he just i get him on the phone yeah go ahead off from it ah throw it up by 10. i just saw that it's actually the first thing that popped up my screen to yes network you know what your phone needs right now a little brick gardener that's what oh my god to me i tell you guys i tell you guys uh wow wow wow wow wow wow oh my goodness guys well with that being said fam marlins look marlins make i know a wonderful trading partner with the yankees the marlins make a wonderful trading partner with the yankees gary sanchez luke voight miguel anduhar and i know a lot of teams aren't sure about the dh international league but that's apparently one of the things they actually all agree on so my understanding is in 2022 there will be a dh in the national league that's not one of the things holding anything up that's not holding nothing up so the marlins and the yankees make a lot of sense look a lot of these dh types the yankees have could make a lot of sense to a lot of clubs he's just going out there and doing it so guys with that being said i am going to get about my day we bought the the live christmas tree i'm not though is it a live christmas is that what you call it the real real christmas tree you know we do everything real here everything here is real even the christmas tree is real got the got the real christmas tree yesterday so we're going to put that baby up today um everybody going to do that we're going to have a good time uh designated spitters will still be sunday 5 p.m we will do a pre-recording we can't do the live um a lot of things didn't uh didn't work up work out for that so um we will do the pre-recorded sunday 5 p.m designated spitters don't miss it and guys again you guys know december is already next week december is already next week so the major announcements are coming you guys will see the major announcements of what ny news tv will consist of again you don't want to miss it you don't want to miss any of it at all you're going to want to be there and lie yankee king gets in right before i end it and i got to answer this pete the reason i'm trading all the players i'm trading is because the window is shut and roster is aging and i also contend it and i also contend this year i attached prospects to hick stanton and dj stanton got a no tray claws you know dj's gonna be hard to move and i wouldn't move dj dj is a guy i think that's a win now type player for the yankees and yeah you just need one now guys man you can't just go out there and say we're gonna reset and the window's not necessarily closing this team got a two to three year time frame to still win they just gotta win now they can't consider winning in 2024 they can't consider winning the 2025. they got to go out there make the moves to win right now they got to go out there and make the moves the win right now simple as that so guys again like i said ny news tv announcements probably going to be the week of december 13th that way on that day you guys will find out who all the new podcasts are who's everybody new joining um the the other things we'll be doing on the channel membership is going to be

🔥 🚨 Is Mullins a Real Possibility for the Yankees? @SimonettiSource

Transcript

hey everybody what is going on pete samnetta here for nyy news there's a little rumor out there today saying that the baltimore orioles may look into seeing what offers would be for one cedric mullins now people are immediately probably gonna say uh impossible can't happen and i'm probably gonna agree with you it's probably impossible probably can't have it but it's fun to talk about so i'm gonna come here and talk about this because why the hell not folks you would probably be hard pressed to find a better fit for these new york yankees than cedric mullins he checks all the boxes center field yankees have a need lefty bat the yankees have a need speed the yankees have a need versatil i'm not versatilium sorry athletic ability the yankees have a need leadoff hitter the yankees have a significant need he checks all the box and arguably it's hard to sit there and say okay well anybody even has been rumored as available who would make more sense than a cedric mullins makes a ton of sense in the world if you even think about it we'll get into what it may take after but look at cedric melons real quick cedric mullins is 27 years old last year he had a 5.7 war 30 home runs 291 average 175 hits 91 runs scored 59 rbis 30 stolen bases on base percentage 360 slugging percentage 518 ops 878. this is one of the elite outfielders in major league baseball with everything he does and no i'm pretty sure his second half wasn't as great as his first but still just an absolutely terrific season for cedric mullins he was an all-star we know that um ended up actually being ninth in mvp voting he did also win a silver slugger award so if you're the baltimore orioles right now and you're looking at this type of thing for a guy like a cedric mullins right you're saying hey you know it's almost like brian reynolds in a sense is that you're sitting back saying he's available you know what i mean and you mean with orioles you know we don't expect that that we're very very close to competing you know he could be available but at the end of the day you're gonna have to really knock our socks off here to make a deal work that's the only way you move central malls and i tell you what for the orioles it's smart if you're the baltimore orioles this is smart this is a smart way for you to do business because if a team does come knock and go hey look this guy fits our mold perfect here's what we're offering and they throw at you you know maybe two top fives two top tens uh four guys overall maybe a fifth in the lower level and you're like you know what where the orioles we know we got some decent young pitchers coming up we got maybe arguably the best catching prospect in the game we see what um what's what some of the guys on the club uh did this year your mount castles your your haze your mullens we've seen what these guys have have done and what they could potentially become if a team goes out there goes look we got some some you know starting pigeon prospects that are closing in that are getting close to being there maybe we can work a deal around that cedric mullins by the way is you know it's not like he has some big salary or anything coming along with them so you would have just about every single team interested in this guy so this is a very very smart time for the baltimore orioles to consider moving him and even flirting with the idea of moving whisk again teams are going to throw a lot out so when it comes to the yankees cedric mullins would be a free agent that's 31 when he when he's 31 years old that is in 2026 so you'll have for 22 23 24 25 26 so you're having for four full seasons moving forward and again for any team any team at all that is huge that is absolutely huge for every team that is something that you want so when you look at the yankees you know let's get to it i'm first of all i'm gonna say this right now one there's two there's two things here one i don't think the orioles would be extremely inclined to say hey yanks here you go they might be but still if they look to compete in two to three years they'd still be competing against somebody they traded and made the other club better so i think that's the hesitancy there and two brian cashman ain't ever gonna give up what it would take to land cedric mullins cedric mullins is again what you would assume the pirates would ask for for brian reynolds so guys you know when you when you think about the new york yankees you got to think about their top prospects the baltimore orioles have every right in the world to ask for the top of the line guys from the new york yankees they don't have to ask for anything less at all they could ask for anthony volpe jason dominguez oswald peraza luis hill clark smith austin wells trey ceni uh uh uh luis medina davey garcia alexander vargas uh everson pierre who they just added hayden with nasa westnesski um oswaldo cabrera josh bro i mean it don't matter you can ask for whatever the hell you want if you're the baltimore orioles because again if the yankees did want him they got to knock your socks off and first of all at the end of the day i don't see him doing it when we talked about on a couple of lives and on designated spitters when we brought up the idea of a brian reynolds trade we immediately said well you know i would give jason dominguez up in a deal like that because brian reynolds right now is kind of what you hope jason dominguez could turn into um he obviously has this huge potential on his back it's a lot on a young kid only in a ball very very raw to professional major league baseball so he has time to develop and you never know how the development could go but again you got luis heal who i think could be attractive uh luis medina who could be attractive guys who are you know legitimate starting pitching prospects uh austin wells probably not so much considering they got roche ruchman rouchman whatever his name is but you guys know who's if you're any interest at all in baseball the orioles got one of the best catching prospects in the game volpe of course to be interested in but we don't see him going anywhere at all but any of those guys so dominguez peraza heal schmidt uh sweeney potentially medina uh ken waldechuk uh uh yo andre gomez garcia i mean it's gonna take four of those guys if you're the orioles it's gonna take four of those guys dominguez potentially heal medina and let's say gomez or smith i mean if it's me i'mma win that kind of guy i'm going for that i'm a win now kind of guy i'm a win now kind of guy that's the route i take that is the route i would personally take so i don't know about you guys but again just as a disclaimer so everybody doesn't get the pennies up in a bunch and go pee come on you know it can happen this trade probably got a better chance of happening than me developing wings and flying through my damn wall right here alright so probably not gonna happen i know the yankees and the oreos made deals before but a lot of you know britain and all that was was gonna be a free agent you know you kind of had to move him mullins the auras could be like hey you know offenses is pretty nice you know what i mean our offense is kind of nice out there we could keep them up there again maybe some pitching comes along maybe some decent happens that we're we're a decent team in two to three is it's very possible you know that's very possible so they don't have to deal nobody same thing with the pirates they got some of the best young prospects in all baseball getting very very close to the major leagues you got to knock their socks off to make a deal and i don't blame them if i'm both them i'm sitting back saying yeah we'll try to trade them no doubt give us you know four of your top seven four of your top eight then we'll have a deal right why not cause because if we can get for the one guy maybe three starting pitching prospects that are close to being ready maybe one of those guys is more of a serviceable guy the other two could be legit potential you know one two threes sign me up they're not then we'll talk but until then i'm gonna say he's not available it's the smart move it's a smart move by the baltimore orioles team that hasn't made tons of smart moves in the past it's nice to see him doing something pretty smart but cedric mullins would be the perfect yankee pickup he would be the perfect yankee picker for their offense that's when you're looking that's why martay day by day day by day by day by day starlin marte becomes more attractive because he really fits the yankees well and you know got a lot of fans well he's older well the yankees aren't a team that's looking to win in 2026 they're looking to win in 2022 and that's the mindset you got to have as a yankees gm is that you are looking to win now not four years from now because if that is your mindset and you're playing it wrong and you're not playing to your advantages which is money prospect capital money and prospect capital those are those are the new york yankees two huge huge advantages over the club over other clubs they can sign whoever the hell they want typically not on their house a little different and they got prospect capital where they go make trades when they need to and they got these guys that are closing into the major leagues also to help them so they got the best of both worlds right now they just got to use utilize it that way the new york yankees should be the marvel character the juggernaut that's what they that's what they need to be they need to be the juggernaut they need to just be able to run through walls non-stop break through everything go look we're gonna we're gonna juggling out through everything that's how we that's how we run our business here has it been like that mullins to the yankees is likely not happening whatsoever but boy oh boy cedric mullins would be an amazing pickup for the new york yanks and really would fit them just about better than anybody that's available out there so you guys let me know in the comment section below what do you think about this move do you think there's any possibility at all and if there is would you be willing to give up a dominguez would you be willing to give up you know two or three of your top seven maybe four of your top seven eight nine would you be willing to do that for a guy cedric mullen sending those guys over to who could potentially in the future be a rival baltimore oriole team even though the yankees struggle against bad baltimore real team so i really doesn't matter but guys if you have not subscribed please go ahead and do so for your notifications on so you never miss a ny news video again i am pizza manetti talk to you guys again very very soon thank

Could Peraza Get The Jeter Treatment? @SimonettiSource

Transcript

what is going on everybody pete simonetti here for ny news and as you can see it is off it is off so the rehab physical therapy process starts now six plus weeks six weeks or so um yeah a little a little beat up sore hurts um but hey i always like a good challenge so i expect a much better and stronger me over the next six plus weeks positive positive positive positive but anyway guys i want to talk about a conversation i had with an advanced scout who gives me a lot of good information on a lot of yankee prospects he does not work in a yankee organization got connected to him from a lot of other people but but this is his job his job is to know a lot of these guys that could face teams in the future that could come up and do some damage and no he is the the eyes the ears so to say and the guider uh of an organization that's what that role basically is to inform and let teams know whether it's they're playing against them whether it's trade value whether it's a guy that may fit your team down the line this is their job to know these things so i asked a simple question i said going back to 1996 when the new york yankees gave young prospect derek jeter the chance to be a shortstop now times are a little different derek jeter also wasn't in a time where free agency was you know 96 wasn't uh you didn't have four guys out there who you know will command a hundred plus million dollar contract somebody maybe 300 plus guarantee 200 plus on a few of them and be legitimate stars that can immediately jump into a team's shortstop role and become a leader or the star player team middle of the order bet not facing that so what i asked him was is there any chance that young yankee prospect oswal cabra oswal cabrera my goodness oswald perazza oswaldo cabrera just added to the yankee 40 man look out for him he plays shortstop third base second base anyway oswald barraza none of this is scripted always real at ny news guys oswald peraza you guys know i love oswald peraza i am extremely high in this guy and is nice to know that many others are also and not just in the yankees organization one of the reasons why brian cashman really feels like i don't know if i should you know it depends on what i'm what i'm giving up for this guy we don't know if he's involved in the matt olsen talk i would assume he is because from everything i've heard and you guys go back to my to our um to our uh chat we have eli who you guys know does a tremendous job on everything yankees minor league did a great job on the 40 minute ross to break it up news before everybody else and even just conversation that i've had if you're a fan of the channel you'll watch the designated spitters you see the knights at the round table personal videos i make lives i've talked very highly about oswald peraza because what i hear about him is phenomenal it's phenomenal so for the guys who don't know and i'll be shocked if there's yankee fans out there who don't know much about azwa peraza across the board in every ranking system he's either gonna rank two or three he'll either be ahead or behind jason dominguez and of course number one is anthony volpe but oswald perazza is 21 years old six foot about 170 175 last year last year look at these numbers guys 297 average 38 stolen bases 58 rbis 18 home runs ops of 834 on base percentage of 3 56 76 runs scored just an absolutely tremendous year for oswald peraza 26 doubles three uh three triple two triples overall caught stealing 10 times but stole 38 bases again um slugging percentage 477 across the board and as you guys know he went from able to double a where he was terrific to triple a he ended the year in triple a one of the things you guys again have heard me say a lot was really corroborated by the scout that i sent these questions to my question simply was this would the yankees not will they not do you think could the yankees give oswald peraza the derek sanderson jeter treatments would he put him out there and just surround him by some really good guys his response to me was oswald peraza could start a shortstop for any club in major league baseball right now he wouldn't need no more conditioning none of that again he could start right now with any club now he did say this if that were the case he would ensure that the second baseman is dj lemayo and not glaber torres the reason being you want to put veteran more veteran guys around that can really handle that position around him if you could kind of block him in with a giovanni or shella who handles this position very well and also did a good job of short stop peralta short and then at second base dj lemay got a lot of great voices around a kid who most people will tell you if they don't feel his bat is totally there yet the glove is he's smooth he's slick these are the words that i've said before and the words that he also stated to me oswald is a very good defensive shortstop and the one thing he mentioned is what a lot of the other shortstops that are available what all the money is available that they're not gonna necessarily give you is legitimate speed legitimate guide i could do 20 plus stolen bases easy now we know trevor story out of all the guys available is fast he's very athletic he compared him more to a story than anybody else available he said the one thing he thinks that he will become better than story if he ever became better than story is that he will make more contact than trevor story he's not a guy that needs to swing for homers to drive the ball out that's a gift he has he can drive the ball the right center field that a lot of people see as doubles he takes them over the fence so i asked that question for a simple reason with all the information i've been given i do not see the yankees dropping a major contract unfortunately guys this is no longer the new york yankees that we once truly loved and we still love of course but it's ran a little differently a lot differently if you really want to go into but i'm just specifically speaking when all these guys are available back in the day the yankees would have got them they might have got two of them they might have got two of them in all reality because they got a they could they could literally do second third or short and fill two positions if they really wanted to they could have done that with the mindset right now that we could potentially see correa go elsewhere and sager go elsewhere seeger leaving simeon and story as the potentially other big names that the yankees can go out there and get right i think story's a terrific fit if you go out there and add more pitching wise trades get a good catcher and all that but if the yankees were to say you know what we do have money we could spend on the the the yearly basis we don't want to get tied into it to an eight six seven eight nine ten d year deal we want to save that for aaron judge but we will do you know four five year deals maybe guys you know not at 30 plus million a year none of that stuff maybe we get some 22 23 24 25s in there the yankees go out there and let's say you know we think robbie ray and pitching is going to be key we feel like if we added um a marte in center field or if we make a trade of some sort uh with merrifield i don't know just to throw a name out there somebody that hits a little bit of contact moves guys over drives at the top of that top of that order a little bit gets on base more can run a little bit again starlin marte um if we did something like that maybe just maybe if we trade for matt olsen maybe just maybe we can get a guy also when i give it up haraz and then we can leave a peraza at short let him develop between two guys like a urshella maybe a kyle seeger they end up going out and get potentially i don't know i'm just throwing stuff out there and the dj lemayo maybe it's instead of trading a peraza to oakland they trade a glaber torres maybe they also get a pitcher in that deal so the main thing that i also asked was well what is the mindset of oswald peraz and he said flat out oswald peraz could come up to the major leagues and he'll do his thing he's just that type of guy from what he saw he just he's a professional ball player he doesn't see a guy that tries to be flashy he doesn't see a guy that that show boasts he doesn't see a guy that you know um um you know the saying that he puts his head down and he runs he's a gamer he goes out there and plays baseball so again i am not advocating i am not pushing for the new york yankees to just say start peraza what i'm trying to again come full circle here because the yankees made some good moves when they released the guys they released recently to add to that 40-minute roster they added really good players i thought stephen ridings would have been gone i thought ron martin mara kisio whatever his name is um who's it excellent i hate when i can't pronounce an italian name if i had it in front of me i could do it but i always forget it they added good guys ever since pierre we already know about oswaldo cabrera who i mentioned earlier in this video but if that's a sign maybe they do start going to the younger guys here maybe the yankees do say you know what we are the yankees yes but maybe we can also be like the tampa bay rays just in the sense that if we have an open position and if we want to if we want to add elsewhere because we can we can throw a peraza out there because we know we're going to add a huge starting pitcher we know we're going to add a big center fielder i don't think yankee fans have an issue with that at all it's just a balancing act the yankees can't sit back there and go we're not going to get these guys because it's too much money well unfortunately we didn't add enough so we'll just start some of our younger guys that ain't going to cut it that's not the strength of what the yankees should be doing the strength of what the new york yankees should be doing is that yes we can do the small deal yes we can make a trade because we got a good farm system and yes when it comes to big bucks we can spend it we got everything we got guys we could call up and play we got guys we can trade for and we have money that is the best you can have as an organization the yankees have it they just got to utilize it the right way the philosophy got to be the right way it's not that you spend 220 million dollars it's how you spend it that's been the issue with his ball club how they have spent their money we can pull players from this roster and go ha that adds up to 80 90 million for what and you could do that easy with the new york yankees roster so again i'm not sitting here saying a yankee shouldn't go get correa they shouldn't go get secret they shouldn't go get stored they shouldn't go get simeon you guys know i think story would be terrific depending on what he is i might try to offer him a big one-year deal but sticking to oswald peraza i confirmed with multiple people i know brian cashman said his glove would play up here right now his bat would the event scout i talked to said he would not see peraza really having an issue because of his intangibles because of what he brings to the table his attributes they're all there he said one it'll take an adjustment but he's made those he's shown him in the past he started off double a very slow he made an adjustment he made an adjustment that's what the best guys do they make adjustments they make adjustments he only had 28 at-bats in aaa 286 one homer but most people would tell you the legitimate competition in the miners is double a when it comes to pure talent there is more pure talent prospects aaa you have a lot of your your journeymen still down there guys that are kind of holding on to a last hope guys that are organizational fillers prospects too but triple double a that's why you see a lot of guys make the jump from double a to the major leagues because of that exactly so everything i hear everything i have been told if the yankees really wanted to go to the route of the derek jeter route with the oswald peraza they can do it they can do it again guys this is pizza manetti for nyy news hope you guys enjoy your sunday since there is no designated spit is today we should be back next week but guys tuesday night i'll give you an update there is going to be
