I don't follow them but do they have any young starting pitching prospects that will reach MLB soon?

Detente came up this year, beyond him their pitching was thin until they literally drafted 20 pitchers with 20 picks this past draft.  Given how they’ve developed pitching though, I’m skeptical how it will pan out

2021 5th round pick out of high school and signed for $400k.  Switch hitting, 6’2” 220 lb outfielder.  Strikes me as more of a first base/dh type long term.

Hit .283/.356/.547 with 4 homers in 53 AB in his pro debut this year in the complex league. 

Mlb.com gives him a 40 hit tool, 60 power tool, 45 run, 45 field, and 50 arm.

could be a riser in the system if his bat holds up next year at low a

Problem is they also need to build a whole pitching staff around ohtani.  I bet they go hard after the gausman/desclafini tier this offseason

Listening to the jomboy podcast from after us winning the World Series.  Good vibes only

I would add that they have Pujols gone now and also Dexter Fowler. Which I believe is like $45 million. Justin Upton gone after 2022?  And Ohtani would be signed long term so the Rendon contract would only be an issue for a couple of years versus that.

Who is the female studio host?  Don't recall her being there before. 

The Lightning have given up 12 goals over their first two games.  A couple were empty netters but still that is really bad.  Caught them still on the Cup hangover I think.

Adding, on the Yankees: it appears that Brian Cashman loads up on big, slow power hitters who are mediocre fielders. Year after year. Note this year's Twin Towers Plus, Judge-Stanton-Gallo, along with Sanchez, Torres, and Rizzo. They built themselves an "all short-porch" ballpark a decade ago, and they've stumbled ever since, yet they fit the same sort of teams to their park. Their pitching is never much, but it's not clear if that's the fault of the pitchers or that the pitchers work in a place designed for pop-fly home runs. Aaron Boone, in end-of-year talks, seems to be saying that "teams have passed us", even though the Yankees spend and spend.

Yankee hitters are not necessarily to be coveted.

I’m surprised how people have soured so much on voit.  I would love him on the nats

I think most teams in most sports took the J&J vaccine?
yes, and there just seemed to be a lot of break throughs on teams. The Red Sox had a big problem in late August/early September.
