Jose Can You See

with 10 comments

The New York Yankees have reportedly turned down a deal that would have brought Jose Quintana to the Bronx.

According to the source, the White Sox had asked for Luis Severino, Jorge Mateo and the organization’s top prospect Clint Frazier. And it makes sense for general manager Rick Hahn to seek this kind of return.

I’d swap out Frazier for Judge and make the deal…But I understand not doing it too..


Why bother with signing Matt Holliday at $13M is they are now “out of money” for any other improvements – could have gotten any number of flawed righty bats in January for half that?

Umm good point, and of course the  Yanks will  refuse to totally break it down, at least for now.. We can  all  see Gardner, Headley and Tanaka gone by August 1st, if they’re all  healthy and performing to  their standards……


Sources say Edwin Encarnacion with #Indians is three years, $60M, including $5M buyout. Option valued at $25M. Max: $80M.

That makes the Indians a real  good team especially with Michael Brantley coming back and their rotation  expected to be healthy… Add a full year of Miller and the Indians will  battle Boston  for AL chalk

    You probably could have won a lot of bets if you said that Ivan Nova and Jason Castro would sign almost the same contract this winter.

    • I just watched a video from 92, Dream in Blue with Louie on drums, what a great feel.. the cats they hire to play are more versatile but Louie had that feel, and what he played wasn’t an easy ostinato

      yeah great band, can’t replace dudes who have been together for a million years.. Hildago is still the straw that stirs the drink for me…

  7. Louie still plays his lefty drums a few songs.
    I told him he was the Richard Manuel of East L. A. Haha
    Hidalgo is The Hombre 100 %
