    Interesting: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com...b-predictions/

    The Jays & Yankees have roughly the same 'chance' to win the division and record.

    I don’t have a high opinion of Boone, but in fairness to him I don’t think he has much autonomy even in game, let alone roster construction like you said. I don’t think he has full agency to set lineups, decide when guys have days off or even make independent bullpen decisions.

    So will it be the 2022 Regular Season thread or the 2022 Season thread ?

    I think they’re a lock for the playoffs though.

    All the Boone stats listed skipped the most relevant- salary- he probably came much cheaper than the alternatives. I bet Buck is making at least double his salary

    Me too. Saw him in Greenville SC against the Sox team and he hit a couple of moonshot HR's

    This.
    They're thrilled with him. He did exactly what Cashman said to do, without question. He rested hot players with an off day following. He even rested players after off days. He played Gardy every day. He said all the right things.

    And Cashman has convinced Hal they're doing great.

    "Today, the Yankees made the following roster moves: • Selected RHP David McKay to the 40-man roster and optioned him to Triple-A SWB. • Placed RHP Stephen Ridings on the 60-day injured list with right shoulder impingement. The Yankees’ 40-man roster stands at 40."

    Shame about Ridings, although it was to be expected with how little news we were hearing about him. Hope he can recover soon - he was one of our most impressive bullpen arms last year - but shoulder injuries generally aren't great signs especially for a guy who throws as hard as he does. They still need a spot for Gonzalez, so there's presumably another roster move to come.

    An NJ.com article that cites a Boston Globe article which is just speculation from a Sox beat reporter...I didn't think it was possible for me to trust anything less than Post articles but they've managed it with this one.
