This has been the longest drawn out deal for a midnrotation starter I’ve ever seen. Stowers’ below-average arm will push him to left field if he can’t stay in center.”. Losianga, Adams, Acevedo, King etc. It allows teams the ability to go over slot on a player in he high 20s and get a player who might be a top 5-10 player. he allowed fewer homers AND significantly less hits and walks away from YS. strike four, you truly are an idiot arent you. Their poor start last year cost them a lot of time. Please tell me you’re not a Yankee fan.

Gray and Sanmartin have been dealt to the Reds in exchange for Sanmartin and a Competitive Balance Round A selection. If you are a Reds fan I could understand your frustration to gain some attention as that team would bore me to tears too.. @rj You made a nonsensical comment, so I made one right back at you. Much of the play-by-play, game results, and transaction information both shown and used to create certain data sets was obtained free of charge from and is copyrighted by RetroSheet. Gray could rebound as he gets out of the North East pressure cooker and no DH. His FIP pegged him at 3.67 which would make him a very solid #3 but nowhere near a #1. dont worry south beach even as a met fan, I know this is a fine deal, they have no clue who Josh Stowers is. I could care less about Long. I guess if that’s your only way of looking at it. I don’t understand what Cincy is doing this offseason and why they are giving up so much just to extend Gray they can do that at any time. I think we are all thinking this over wayyyyyyy too much. Gray’s era was 3.16 away from Yankee Stadium last year and he induces a lot of ground balls. All 3 of the pieces in the trade for Gray are still considered MLB pieces. I could care less about Shed Long, now the draft pick is a different thing altogether because it’s 36th overall. Gray is a good pitcher. A one year deal is never a bad thing. This sonny gray stuff was not. Yeezus…. Those are big –NOT huge — raises. So, 3 out of 54 picks became major leaguers above the level of Sonny Gray’s career 12.6 WAR. in case you didn’t get the memo Yankees traded Long to Seattle he was here all of five minutes so wave bye bye Long your long gone…good job while you were here. Just a guess. Best of all they received an extra draft pick which helps the Yanks rebuild the farm and it’s s good draft spot also! I suppose you’d like Snydergaard and Kershaw to NYY as well?
