I have been doubting the Yankees...
I have been critical of the Yankees...
It seems that I might be wrong about the Yankees.
John Heyman (in the NY Post) is reporting that the Yankees have made an offer to Blake Snell.
I hope this is a legitimate offer. I don't want to hear... "We gave a better deal with more money in the first years and an optout, blah, blah blah..." I want to hear, "The Yankees signed Blake Snell..."
I would LOVE to be wrong about the Yankees. I would LOVE for them to go all-in and get this pitcher. I've come around on Snell. I think he's the best available pitcher.
Blake Snell makes the 2024 Yankees better - appreciably better.
This would be what going all-in looks like. Soto and Snell. Yeah... now we're talking.
(I'd still like to be greedy - and get one more starter - Shane Bieber?)
But, let's see them get Snell first. A big step.
I used some Beatles lyrics in a comment in a post earlier today. Here's some more lyrics:
"Don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me let down
Can you dig it? Don't let me down"
