I hope Yankees sign Adam Ottavino.

I would be very surprised if they don't

Not sure they are signing him to just flip. Seem like they might be over that unless they totally suck

Yeah idk if they will, but if they're bad but Herrera is doing great, they can put a high price on him having the extra years of control.

So does this mean Chili's source on Manny loving the Sox visit is accurate, too?

He claimed the source that told him about Herrera is the same source so I hope so!

Yeah I think the idea(Atleast what it seems like they want to do) is to not suck to the point where they want to trade relievers again.

Wait, this doesn't look like an apology at all...

They still have to replace Robertson right?

Yes, plus betances is a free agent after this year and Chapman can opt out

Awesome, I wanted them to improve the bullpen going into this season. Colome and now Herrera with guys like Jones, Fry, Hamilton and Vieira, the bullpen might be the team’s biggest strength. 

I expect that this takes them out of the Ottavino race but I still would like for them to sign another guy with high leverage experience like Brad Boxberger.

Yes, the extra control would make all the difference in the world on a flip.

Let's ask him. Nice going, Chili!

Meh. So far, all we've done this off-season is acquire scrubs. Colome, Nova, Herrera, McCann, Alonso. And frankly, the bullpen is the last piece a team should build. With a few exceptions, nobodies turn into studs and back into nobodies before you can even learn their names. Think Politte, Hermanson, and Cotts of oh so many years ago.

Herrera and Colome aren't scrubs...

Those guys aren't scrubs.....game changers no. But definitely good additions.

Why?

Whether we sign Machado or Harper, we're still at least 2 years from competing. Signing a legit reliever while his value is down to a 2 year deal looks like a rebound and flip deal. This is still the beginning of a major rebuild.

Seems way more like a sign and trade for 'spects deal than trying to compete deal to me. 

I read it as the opposite actually

Yeah they're both good. And McCann is just a backup catcher who doesn't have that much influence on the season. And Alonso is being used as a pawn.
