For anyone needing a NYY fix, here's the 1952 World Series, Yankees at Dodgers, Game 7, Ebbetts Field. Nine HOFers in the series (Yankees: Casey Stengel (mgr.), Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Johnny Mize, Phil Rizzuto
Dodgers: Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider). And some great names from the past who aren't, like Billy Martin, Gil Hodges, Carl Furillo, Charlie Dressen, Gil McDougald, Joe Black, Johnny Sain, Carl Erskine, and up in the booth two more greats, Mel Allen and Red Barber. :)


edit: Historical note: Johnny Sain was the last pitcher to face Babe Ruth, and the first to pitch to Jackie Robinson

SOSH is saying Yanks-M’s talking
Ellsbury, Andujar for Segura, Cano, prospect and half of Cano’s contract.

Yanks traded Torreyes. I don't really like the move. Utility guys who can play almost every position, while not being a liability at the plate, are incredibly important over a 162 game season where injuries take a toll.

I concur, anything that increases options is generally good, and RT gave us more than one.

Kaiser has this one been discussed on the FAN yet?

Sonny Gray/Jacoby Ellsbury/Clint Frazier for Zach Greinke/ Nick Ahmed

The Yanks don't like Greinke I thought.
Its not official but its a deal I could see the Yankees considering it gets Ellsbury and Gray off the books for an upside ace or number 2 pitcher at worst.

I think it can be worse. I think their issue was they didn't believe Greinke would hold up in NY.

Greinke is 36. Pretty sure they wouldn’t include Frazier.

And yes, Greinke was dismissed as anotherr gray or Whitson.
