Yanks need to trade Torres. They have lots of IF depth and need to give Perazza a real chance to play or trade him. He is done for AAA and has nothing to prove. He struggled in 23 but did not in 22. Torres. Pereira, one of Hampton, Warren, or Gil, and Arias or Lombard Jr, and Augustin Ramirez for Araaez and Luzardo. Gives Marlins a replacement at 2B for season and future 2B/SS, an outfielder they need, a ML ready starter, and high upside catching prospect. Yanks get starter they need and a new 2B and real leadoff hitter who can go to 1B if Rizzo leaves after 24. If they make this deal they can use Perazza…

With Jordan Montgomery, there is the "Mike Maddux factor". When Monty was traded to the Cardinals, he instantly improved to almost an "ace like" pitcher. Then when last season began, Mike Maddux had already moved on to the Texas Rangers, and Monty regressed quite a bit with the Cardinals from what he had been when he was first traded over there for the later part of the previous season. Then, lo and behold, Monty is traded over to the Texas Rangers, is reunited with Mike Maddux, and he is suddenly good again. This tells me that if he goes some place other than Texas and has a different pitching coach there, that he possibly may not have the same suc…

The Yankees have a certain pitching philosophy. Guys from Sam Briend down, have been hired specifically to carry out that philosophy. You were viewed as not a fit or unwilling to do same, you were sent packing. Sent packing or jumped before were Larry Rothschild, Danny Borrell, Tommy Phelps, & Jose Rosado, just to name a few. At no time did Boone have a say. Boone's fault in this lies that he has accepted this way. Cashman even said it last year about Boone, and I'm paraphrasing here 'He (meaning Boone) has done everything we've wanted him to do'. Does that statement make it sound like Boone, or even Blake is allowed to do what they want to do?

The things I've been concerned about after the 2023 season, in my view still have not been fixed. Why? I have no idea. To me, it's still all about the support staff that the Yankees have. It's the entire medical staff, the coaching staff, and coaching being strictly analytically driven. You fix those things, it is my belief that most of all your other problems go away.


No one has been fired yet for the Rizzo mess. Not a coach, an athletic trainer, a front office person, or even an analytics person. Stanton's bat speed is still there by the numbers, but no one has scheduled him for a neuro muscular test. Even MLBN back on June 18th, did…

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
