I've said I would trade Thor for a Thor equivalent young hitter in a nanosecond.

I've been 100% in favor of dealing him. but with today's horrible NYI news, i'm 1 billion% in favor of dealing deGrom. Why the ever loving fuck would he resign here with this horrible organization? There is no loyalty anymore. Wilpons aren't going to pay him more than other clubs will. He'll walk as FA and we'll get nothing. Cash in now.

Star players don't stay with shitty organizations who are run poorly. deGrom is gone as soon as he's a free agent. get the absolute most for him now before he leaves.

They should definitely try to extend him through 2023. If he refuses, they at least know they cant count on him being here after 2020.

It makes some sense for him financially given injury/performance risk over the next two years, but if he also wants to win which most athletes want to do, that might easily hold him back from signing with us. We're a true clown organization.

Since 1990, we've had 19 of 28 seasons with 83 or fewer wins. We've won more than 90 games 3 times. In 28 fucking years.

Our record over the past 3 decades speaks for itself. It has nothing to do with the Yankees and everything to do with toxic ownership.

Give him 6 to stay. He's the franchise player. Every decent team is going to have at least one big contract that will look bad at the end of it. Might as well be deGrom here

even though we know he's going to be an ace at 37 because he's jacob degrom

Of all the new people to get banned, Trikery was probably the last. He was actually a good poster
