Readers' Thread: Bullpen?

January 21, 2024

***

Here's a question that's been on many minds this last week:


Do the Yankees need to improve their bullpen by signing a free agent or making a trade?


Enjoy the respectful discussion.

If the team can sign a decent righty arm (like Neris) at a reasonable price, go for it. If not, I’m ok with the pen as currently constructed. Similarly, if Wandy wants to come back for $3-4 million a year, I’d take a flyer.

If nothing else, the team has shown they can develop bullpen arms. That’s the least of my concern moving forward.

I would much rather the Yankees get one more starting pitcher.


I'm hoping on Blake Snell to solidify the rotation. It seems, accoding to some reports, that the Yankees are the only team to make him an offer...


Maybe a deal can be made.

Mark Feinsand now says Yanks were Snell's only offer...turned it down wanting more years and or greater yearly value...so the staredown is on (unless the Yanks have withdrawn the offer...not clear...)

Yes !!! Now that Cashman has let the best 4-5 slip away !?!?!! 🤬, WTF Cash?? You were gonna offer 300Mill to Y. Y., yet a few Grand stops you from shoring up the pen ??? GEEZ!! 🤬🤔😖😖!! Rediculous.. still possible to get Bellinger, shoring up the lineup, but no, all of a sudden All-in, means, just the spare change..??

Now, The Rotation is a Question mark.

The Pen is the same...

And the Lineup, doesn't scare anyone, Especially the Dodgers.!!! I'm a die-hard Yankees fan, since 1954 !!! Seems the bullies that use to be the Yankees, are now the charlie Brown's... I've always believed in Cashman, but after the Montas trade, and now this, All-in, statement, I'm Very…

Same crap every year....we are all in...then nothing. I'm waiting for the big move then realize it already happened, saving Hal's money is the big move, duping the fans with a 1 year rental (Soto) get the tickets flowing then sit back and fleece the suckers!!!!!

Byrnes: most stuff I've read recently has Milwaukee taking him off the market, seeing where they are at ASB and rethinking if necessary.

Snell: here we have questions: 1) Has someone outbid the Yanks already and Boras is still looking for more, but either way, Yanks don't get him? 2) Or have the Yanks withdrawn their bid after getting Stroman? 3) Or are Yanks still the high bidder, but Boras is slow-walking in hopes of more? I'd say 25% or less chance of pinstripes...

Meanwhile, if Hal can swallow the cost, time to bring back Wandy...

I really am sick and tired of hearing about just how good Blake & the rest of the pitching coaches are. Who have they really developed? Have there been guys they've helped? Yes. But instead of holding onto guys like the total package they sent out for both Montas and Soto, they count on being able to develop more tradable pitchers. How about developing impact pitchers to be on your own pitching staff? I say, it's put up or shut up time for Briend, Blake, & the rest of pitching gurus. Make me a Closer. Make me a Starter. I never Rondon at his asking price in years or even his AAV. I want to see if Schmidt can take…
