Yanks get Sonny Gray
A's get Mateo, Fowler and Kapreilian.

Hey Stat-you said the Yanks would have to give up 2 of Torres, Frazier, Adams, Florial and Sheffield. You couldn't have been more wrong. They didn't even give up 1. It's OK-say it-"I was Wrong" It's not that hard.

Drake-you said that a package headlined by Mateo or Sheffield would be easily outbid by other teams. WRONG! You can say it-"I was wrong" Also, you made fun of me for saying that Theo Epstein was "Desperate. " In Ken Rosenthal's July 29th post-he qoutes-"The parallels are not precise — Quintana, 28, is nearly a year older than Gray and under control for three-plus seasons as opposed to two-plus.

The Cubs also were more desperate for a controllable starter, lacking the young major-league ready pitching talent the Yankees can use to fill rotation openings next season. " He agrees with me.

So, in conclusion I was proven right and stat and drake-you were wrong. Are you going to be man enough to admit it? YOU WERE WRONG!

I was wrong about the Frazier/ Torres comment. I'll admit it.

But you realize Mateo, Fowler, Kaprelian is a better return than your suggestion of Mateo + Florial, right? Many, many scouts think the A's got a fantastic return. I thought there was a bigger market for Gray.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 22:50:29
You seem like the guy who loses every game, and the one time you win, you pretend you're better than everyone.

3.) 31 Jul 2017 23:16:29
Also, for what it's worth, Rosenthal (who "agrees" with you) along with many others believed it was necessary for Frazier or Torres to be included. Many were surprised by the return.

The market for Gray was weaker than believed. Oakland still got a great return considering.

Hey Mitch you really don't need to brag about this, it makes you look bad and like a sore winner.

5.) 01 Aug 2017 00:11:27
Lol, the second I saw this trade go through I knew this post was coming.

Definitely was wrong. Cashman did really well. Package wasn't as bad as most are making it out to be but really thought they'd get a lot more.

6.) 01 Aug 2017 01:10:54
I took a lot of abuse from you two guys. I usually don't respond to many of the ridiculous posts. But you two went above and beyond. No hard feelings, Drake- gained respect for you. But-stat-3 more posts and still nasty. "Lost every game". Please provide me with anything that shows I lost every time. Ridiculous. Batman! -appreciate your opinions (especially when you agreed with me. ) But just last week- I posted to stat-wait till next week and we'll see who's right? He responded with nasty attack that stated I was stupid and I didn't know what I was talking about. He deserved my post.

7.) 01 Aug 2017 05:24:10
I apologize if you think we are going too far. I need to work on my aggressiveness, so I sincerely apologize.

Please also consider, you've now posted TWO posts where you intentionally bring up others to make fun of them. Not comments, but posts.

I'll back off, but you need to realize, when you bring people up in posts, they have every right to fire back.

I was wrong on the trade. You were wrong in gloating and going on the offense. Let's all move on.

8.) 04 Aug 2017 02:06:20
Great. Happy to hear it. Will look forward to debating future trades as long it doesn't get nasty. BTW-I totally agree with your posts on Mets and Red Sox.

9.) 05 Aug 2017 17:39:57
Guys, we are all wrong most of the time on this site.

I'll add this; we cannot predict what many MLB execs are doing because they often don't know themselves.

10.) 05 Aug 2017 17:43:14
Everyone on this site is wrong almost all the time; the only time someone is not wrong is when they copy from an actual trade.

That, sadly, is truth.



20 Dec 2016 16:41:05
Probably won't happen. What do you think.

Mets get B Gardner
Yanks get Granderson.

Mets get Gardner for 3 years @ reasonable price to play CF.

Yanks get Grandy lefty power for 1 year and move Frazier into LF in '18.

Money is similar 15- 12.5 mil.



1.) 20 Dec 2016 18:06:16
Pointless, Yankees are trying to cut payroll down by trading Gardner. This is counterproductive in those efforts. Also Gardner only has 2 years left on his contract.

2.) 20 Dec 2016 18:37:24
Batman-Gardner has club option in year 3. (12.5/ yr) As for patroll, Yanks don't expect to be under cap in '17. But they will in '18 when Grandy would be off books. That's why Holliday was so attractive-1 year commitment-like Grandy. That said- I don't expect this to happen.

3.) 20 Dec 2016 21:55:51
"I don't expect this to happen" you said it so obviously you did, and do.

4.) 21 Dec 2016 03:39:45
Your first three words say it all.

I was just looking back at some old posts. Chisox actually proposed atrade in which the Yankees trade
Frazier-Torres-Andujar-Kaprelian-Headley-Gardner-Fowler--Rutherford and Chad Green and receive Quintana-McCutcheon and DRob
Not only does it include 4 Top 100 prospects but it also includes 2 starters. They give up their starting 3B and top 3B prospect and don't get one back.
So, if anyone sees him post-don't waste your time. He is just another delusional White Sox fan.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 13:20:08
^^^This guy uses two months of data to support his claims. He also doesn't understand the stats he throws out.

Please also ignore him.

2.) 30 Jun 2017 20:50:55
That proposal was essentially a joke when everyone thought Q's value was through the roof. Let's see your proposals, Mitch. It's easy to look back at old posts and critique them based on how they are performing now. lol I'm delusional? But you're reading my posts from like last fall.

"Your" is a typographical error- not grammatical. Read it again-have someone help you with it.
1-I told you Quintana isn't a Top 10-15 SP. I am right. You are wrong. This is not about the Yankees. Maybe you thinking he is shows that you are the "homer. "
2-I challenge you to show one time I have called someone a "joke' or "you don't know anything. " You can't. It's just you that I have a problem with. You represent as a knowledgable fan-you don't know shit.
Again-show me 1 time you agreed with an original post.
For what it's worth-the Yanks will be pitching their whole staff during playoffs-not just Severino. Try to keep up.
Bullpens decide more playoff games than not. Yanks have best bullpen in baseball. They are 57-2 when leading after 6 innings. These are FACTS. I give you facts-you give me "most scouts still prefer Moncada over Torres. " Still waiting for any proof of where you got that from.
I have cited many times where I've gotten my info from-Ken Rosenthal, Jon Heyman, Buster Olney etc. Then you post they don't know anything. When you called me a homer and I cited McCovey chronicle you had problem with that too. No, you know better-you fool.
One more thing. I stated that Yanks will still win division. I wanted to bet on it. After Sox opened up 4.5 game lead-you decided that it should be "not posting forever. " Even with that deficit, I will still take that bet for 1 month. Will you? Not having what you consider human interaction for a month would probably kill you.

Stat-they traded Machado for #84 prospects plus lesser ones. Again you show that you don't know anything much.

The more you post, the more you show you don't know. from Quintana to Gray-you prove it constantly. It's not a math error I caught you on-it's making up rubbish to support your misguided opinions. Your are a whiny little crybaby who doesn't like to be told they're wrong. Well you are! If this hurts your feelings-too bad. For someone who has stat in their handle, how can you make an such a math error. JOKE! BTW-Yanks have 2nd best staff ERA in league. And BAA. And WHIP. Have you ever agreed with another's post? That's why I remember and only respond to you. You are such a fool.

Stat- I should have known better than to take your stats at face value. Yankee starters not named Severino have combined 4.52 ERA. NOT 4.98. MLB. com stats. Ask someone to help with the math. Bosox starters other than Sale have 4.25 ERA. Would you rather have staff with 4.52 ERA starters and Yankee bullpen OR 4.25 starter ERA and Bosox bullpen? Before you answer-remember relievers accounted for more wins in AL postseason than starters.

According to McCovey Chronicles-don't count out Mad Bum trade. They are NOT A YANKEE website. Here'a another fact-Yanks' 2-5 have winning record against Bos, Hous Cleve and Seattle. Tanaka and CC haven't lost to any of those teams this year. FACT! How could they possibly win with this staff? Same staff went to 7 games in ALCS. As for matchups-the fact that you included Price in your matchups show you don't know anything. Price will not be pitching against Yanks. After that, I couldn't stop laughing to look at your other matchups. Remember, playoffs are mostly decided by bullpens anyway. Another thing-you keep saying Yanks won't win division. If Yanks win div, will you say you were wrong and not comment on any posts for month. Doubt it. BTW-how's Quintana doing? You still think he's a Top 10-15 SP?
