optimistic is thinking that Snell will be a Yankee and will win 18 games

finishing with several fewer wins than Cy Cole

and runner-up Rodon

that was the extreme upside view of the Yankee rotation,

but it remains my view that the Yankee path to the World Series must be smoothed by dominant pitching.

the uber-agent is going insure that the team pays full-fare for Snell, but paying the pitcher

provides greater mileage than signing a centerfielder.

Cole: 16

Rodon: 12

Stroman: 11

Cortes: 9

Schmidt - 8

As usual, BP will be overworked because of injuries and usage.

Paul going out on a limb with Rodon leading the Yanks in wins. I like it, from your lips to God’s ears.

Cole: 18-5

Rodon: 11-6

Stroman: 13-7

Cortes: 12-8

Schmidt - 11-8

Somewhat optimistic, assuming they all stay healthy and produce 25 or so starts minimum (though that’s unlikely).

Snell: 12-6 with lots of no decisions.

The Yankees SPs will have too many losses and not nearly enough wins. They will also again have too many starts that will result in a ND. I chuckled hard Paul when you give Stroman 27 decisions. That, just doesn't happen for a New York Yankees SP anymore. Garrett Cole had 19 decisions in 33 starts in 2023! He averaged only about 6.1IPS. Not good enough in 2024 to pile up the decisions. Then, you have the New York Yankees pitching philosophy, which is pro bullpen. Clay Holmes let about 45% of his IR to score. Marianaccio was about at 28%. Kahnle only stranded one runner. With stats like that, the Starters ERAs will be higher, more losses o…

Paul, if you're right, then the Yankees have radically changed their pitching philosophy, and we the fans win!

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

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."
