Yanks Make Offer To Snell

by Paul Semendinger

January 11, 2024


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"

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."

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."
