I am here one week shy of the start of pitchers and catchers in the heart of the Cactus League which host 15 MLB teams.
"I feel like in a lot of ways, we're a complete team right now, " Boone said Tuesday before the 39th annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner, as quoted on the New York Daily News.
Aaron Judge is willing to take one for the team if it means landing Bryce Harper. "Nolan Arenado's progress on a multi-year extension with the Rockies, which would remove him from next offseason's free-agent market if the deal gets completed, should remind the Yankees that a good plan today trumps a ideal plan for 270 tomorrows from now".
The NL West already is fraught with competition and Harper joining the boys of the Bay Area would make the division that much more intriguing. The Post suggests that Harper could round off a righty dominant lineup with is left-handed bat.
The field competing for Bryce Harper's services may have at least one fresh suitor in the Giants, who recently met with the outfielder as part of a late effort to gauge the possibility of signing him, according to NBC Sports and MLB Network.
As things sit, the Yankees have a relatively stacked roster, particularly in the outfield where Judge and Giancarlo Stanton bookend things, and Aaron Hicks roams center field. Both of these players are All-Stars with great offensive talents and defensive abilities. I am starting a petition for the other 28 teams in the Major League Baseball to offer this man a contract to keep him out of NY. "Obviously things happen that force Brian and his staff to pivot on certain things".
