    There are team dedicated threads in the NHL forum so why not the MLB? Here's a place where all us fellow Yankees fans can talk about the team or anything else
    [​IMG]
    so let's start with
    The Aroldis Chapman Trade
    I made a thread earlier about the thread and my thought about it, I love this deal for the Yankees and the cubs(if they win the WS) Chapman is a rental and the Cubs want to win NOW. Meanwhile the Yankees traded for chapman for pretty cheap in the offseason and now they just got a top 24 prospect, top 75 prospect, Crawford(who is only 22 and is on a hot streak in A+)and Warren back. The Yankees strengthen their prospect pool and their future by trading chapman who most likely wouldn't even be on the team next year.

    What's ur guys thoughts?

    Torres and Mateo with Didi at DH and Castro at 3B will be fun in a few years. With others like Judge, Bird, and Sanchez coming up soon, Yankees will be fun to watch.

    As for recent news, Luis Severino has been called up and has been put in the bullpen. Also, the Yankees have said that Ivan Nova may be the next player to go via trade.

    Great business by the Yankees plus chapman was talking about coming back to ny in free agency which would make this maybe the best trade of all time

    Warren is a decent reliever, Torres should be great, and I don't know much about the other two

    Crawford isn't really a highly touted prospect all tho he's been ripping it up this month in A+(I think it's A+). McKinney's scouting report says he's more of an athlete then a baseball player so I'm guessing he relies on speed and defense and doesn't have a great bat.

    Just read an article that Mateo will be playing at 2B and Torres will be at SS... Mateo has been playing 2B this season for about a quarter of the games, and he said that he is fine with the transition.

    No. I don't think it's a good idea. I think we should stick with the rebuild and acquire top prospects instead of giving away prospects.
