Yankees drain the farm system for Joey Gallo: suggested John Sterling homerun calls

IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS... GONE...

GALLO GOES GRAVY! HEY, WHO NEEDS A FARM SYSTEM?

A HOMER BY JOEY! TAKE THAT, REST OF THE DECADE!

JOEY JACKS ONE! SO WHAT IF WE HAVE NO FUTURE!

It’s really unfucking believable. You get another guy who HR or SO. I don’t care about prospects. Just get some baseball players, not MLB the Show characters

Gallo is very good. Strikes out a ton, but that's the game these days. I do think Cashman takes it to a crazy degree, but we desperately needed a left-handed power hitter and this guy has a great glove. Plus he's only 27. We didn't give up any top prospects. I think it's a good move.

John King looks like he could help the bullpen.

Not sure how Gallo's .379 OBP helps. What's the point of having baserunners on this team?

This is a pure ROI move. They get Gallo, and make run at the wild card. Maybe they get in. Maybe they don’t. But he didn’t really cost them much and the added revenue that getting a sniff at extra game puts fannies in the seats. They get bounced after a game or two - unless it’s the twins - and voila - Harold pads the bottom line. The suckers...I mean fans...pony up to see those extra games and everybody goes home happy, even in the aftermath of another early exit and the seasonal rape of the farm system.

We were so close and we’ll come back next year for more of the same shit.

It’s the hope that keeps me coming back, even in the face of the annual reality. If nothing changes, nothing changes.

Same as it ever was.

I was wondering who would be this year's Xavier Nady.

Lance Berkman

Joey! Joey! What made them want to throw you that pitch?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Xavier Nady was a name I had happily forgotten.

Thanks, Leinstery, for nuthin'.

@bennyboy...totally agree

"Joely Rodríguez will look to improve his results with his new club, as he's struggled to a 5.93 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 27.1 innings to this point in the campaign."

That WHIP should fit in nicely...

Yanks are also interested in Max Kepler...

Hensley Meulens said...

@Publius -High Five on that sneaky Dylan reference

I've followed Kepler for the past few years. He's not having a good year but he's a very good lefty hitter and is ok in the field. Would be a solid acquisition
