I don't think he gets the premiere haul back they could have got for him 2 years ago
The guy barely had a full season worth of work in the last 2. W/L might look better just about anywhere, but a pitcher entering 30 with two bum seasons behind him... proceed with caution.
People are willing to bet on lefty's though because they can last longer than right handed pitchers
Like I said you're not going to get the haul you once did for him but you will get something. Him and Kershaw aren't the 200 inning killers anymore but they are still one of the best even if they 150 innings of work
Unlike Kershaw’s back, MadBum’s injuries aren’t because of wear and tear which is in his favor.
1st injury was stupidity, bike accident.
2nd was bad luck, breaking hand on a line drive.
A full season, I believe he’s still capable of 200 innings. Maybe not the 2.50 ace he was, but still a damn solid top of the rotation inning eating pitcher.
Yea, if MadBum turns in a typical first half season for him and the Giants are out of it, best believe teams will be calling at the deadline and they would have an opportunity to make that move
The question is do you bet on him rebuilding a little value for more leverage in trades or do you trade him now while you have more teams in the market for a pitcher, especially one like him who you can put at the top of the rotation
Giants might as well see if they can take chances on some guys on a year deal or possibly 2 years like a Matt Harvey who they can flip for something if anything
Either way I don't see this team being the same it is now in 2 years
Justus Sheffield, Erik Swanson and Dom Thompson-Williams go to Seattle in return, also according to Passan.
Sad to lose Justus who was the top left handed pitcher but Yankees are in win now mode and when Paxton is healthy he's a dog
They still got money to sign another pitcher too but I assume that takes them out the running on Corbin
Yankees rotation now is
Now whoever they get moves C.C. to the bottom of the rotation which is where he needs to be. Wonder if they try to drop money to get back Evoaldi. Will be interesting to see what pieces they get back for Sonny Gray. They got to make a big move without giving up Andujar.
I will be honest in wanting Kluber more but can't be sad about James
