I think there’s definitely a need. It’s definitely one of the areas we’re going to be looking at, Steinbrenner told reporters, via MLB.com. We’ve got Jeff Heath Youth Jersey some flexibility payroll-wise, as you know. The question is, what’s going to be available and what are the asks?
As of right now the opinion around MLB is the Yankees have the fourth-best rotation in the American League. Whether that is true or not remains to be seen, but beyond Luis Severino there is not much certainty in the team’s rotation.
There is a lot of certainty in the Yankees’ minor-league system. With Justus Sheffield, Chance Adams, Clint Frazier, Albert Abreu and Estevan Florial, New York has talent galore and skilled players at positions seemingly blocked on the MLB ballclub.
That means New York has the assets to make a move. The question now becomes, what move do they make?
All this came about, apparently, because Murray had first opined on whether Harper was overrated. Murray reported that Anthony Mantha Jersey the exec sent him three texts http://www.officialcowboysnflstore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JEFF_HEATH_JERSEY.html crushing Harper as part of the discussion. None of the texts included specifics, just ad hominem attacks.
The exec also said that if he were running a club (that’s a clue to the level of exec involved), he would take the money he wouldn’t give Harper and buy two or three winning players, whatever that means (again, terms were not defined).
Because these comments http://www.officialdetroitredwings.com/Adidas-Anthony-Mantha-Jersey lacked specificity, we’re left to make our own determination as to whether Harper is a losing player. It’s clear he isn’t one during the regular season because he and the Nats have made the NL Division Series four times in his first six seasons. The problem is, the team has famously failed to get beyond the NLDS.
Harper’s postseason stats (.211/.315/.487 in 19 games) show that he bears some responsibility, but…
He isn’t responsible for Drew Storen’s Game 5 failure in 2012.
He isn’t responsible for Matt Williams’ decision to replace Jordan Zimmermann with Storen in Game 2 of the 2014 NLDS.
He isn’t responsible for the bullpen failing to hold a lead in Game 5 in 2016, or for the maneuvering by Dusty Baker that produced Wilmer Difo vs. Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the ninth.
