The Yankees got the stabilizing rotation presence they wanted, as Jack Curry broke the news that New York had reached agreement with the A’s on a deal for Sonny Gray. Yahoo!’s Jeff Passan quickly confirmed the three prospects going back to Oakland in the deal: Jorge Mateo, James Kaprielian, and Dustin Fowler.
Gray slots right into the Yankees rotation alongside fellow acquisition Jaime Garcia, giving the Yankees a new-look starting five that includes Luis Severino, CC Sabathia, and a seemingly rejuvenated Masahiro Tanaka, who has cut his ERA from 6.55 at the start of June down to 5.09 and dominated the Rays over eight innings with 14 strikeouts in his last start.
Who wouldn’t watch a two-man Home Run Derby in November for a charity of their choice? If Michael Phelps can fake-race a shark then we could put this together somehow.
Also, this is pretty convenient timing, Canseco. The kid is in the middle of a vicious slump, after all. This hit-off needs to happen once he’s back to full force to make everything fair.
Statistically though, this might be over before it gets started.
Canseco’s probably most notable home run, in the 1989 ALCS, is estimated to have traveled 443 feet, not 500 feet or more as some have alleged over time. Just this season, Judge hit a ball to the upper deck of Yankee Stadium that was estimated at a whopping 496 feet.
So do I think that Conseco would actually win this little exercise? Probably not. But in the midst of tweets about time travel and “Would You Rather?” games, this is grounded in a way that Cheap Youth MLB Jerseys his other extemporaneous thoughts aren’t.
It will probably never happen, but what I’m saying is give the man what he wants Fc Barcelona Cheap Jerseys and make this happen. Make Judge prove himself in the Canseco-Dome.
