The Yankees are pretty much the same team that struggled mightily on offense last year, except they added Soto (a horrible defender) and everyone else is a year older. We'll see if Judge can stay healthy and Stanton can provide anything. Maybe Rizzo and LeMahieu can rebound, but they are both on the wrong side of 30.

Yankees could certainly have a good year but they have numerous guys on the wrong side of 30 yrs old. Not just a few. Judge is 32 himself. With his injury history Im not sure Id be betting on him to continue to be one of the top sluggers in the game. He should still be good. He may still be great. But you should begin to have some concern when the clock strikes 30 on any player. Ive said it a million times. This isnt the 90s steroid era where 30+ yr olds dominate the game. Its a young mans game now.

Judge is also a massive human. How well do guys who are 6'7 280+ pounds, who already have an issue staying healthy, age?

There were 94 qualified hitters with a 100 or higher OPS+ last year.  Only 18 of them were beyond their Age 30 season.  Only 11 of the 71 guys above 110 OPS+ were 31 or older.

He could be a Dave Winfield type, but here's hoping he isn't.

I read a ways back there have been less than 500 AB in baseball history for players age 35 and older who are at least 6’7”.

Can't believe they haven't signed Snell or Montgomery yet.

Ive said Ive always felt thats where 1 was going. If Cole is out for any amount of time that becomes a stone cold lock

No ligament tear for Cole, just swelling and inflammation, expected to miss 1-2 months. Still going for a second opinion, it's possible though not likely that the inflammation could mask a tear in the imaging.

Cease to the Padres. Between that and the Cole news, wonder if they panic and give in to Boras for Snell/Montgomery.

@ragazzoreport

Sources: Yankees’ superstar Aaron Judge is dealing with an oblique issue and his toe is still ailing him from last year

He is still expected to be ready for Opening Day but he has some pain to manage which is why NYY being cautious

He had like 14 AB in almost three weeks of Spring Training. Yeah, cautious is one way to describe that.

The argument is that Jasson Dominguez will be back mid-season to take over CF. Considering Judge basically said he’ll be dealing with foot pain the rest of his life, it’s a pretty crappy argument. They really should’ve made signing a CF a priority. 

 

Unless they’re considering Verdugo that CF.

Huge dude who's on the wrong side of 30 and has had injury issues in the past. Nothing to be concerned about.

Don’t worry. Big comebacks aren’t sustainable. They’ll all be injured soon enough.
