Default What if...

Brodie had signed Lamehiue, Ottavino and Britton instead of acquiring Diaz, Familia and Cano. How much money would we be saving this season and how many more wins do you estimate?
Btw, Diaz for a 57 saves guy does not look intimidating as a Chapman or Hader.
Cashman shits on Brodie

yeah, at this point, it appears we're in the timeline where nothing works out for the positive...even Jed Lowrie, who has missed a total of 14 games over the last 2 seasons, can't even make it on the field...I feel like the Mets used all of their available good fortune in that 2015 season...Citi Field is cursed

You believe in curses? I don't Papi!
I believe we're the victims of gross negligence and incompetence!

also, the Yankees are on some other shit...I'm not going to say they're lucky, but shit just always works out for them...if any other team amassed the amount of injuries they've endured this season, there'd be no way they'd be this good...they get guys like Gio Urshela who come in replacing an all-star, and then they instantly embody the output that all-star would have provided...Urshela has almost as many XBH in his 60 games with the Yankees as he's had in his previous 160+ games in the majors

There’s only one way they can reverse the curse, Bunny

They have to grant me amnesty. It’s all gone to shit since that very moment

Adding Cano, Diaz, and Familia only added 5 million to this years payroll. So to sign the other guys instead they would have had to find someone else to take Bruce and Swarzak plus more

I know he hasn't been good, but why does Diaz not look as intimidating as Hader or Chapman? He doesn't beat women and isn't a white supremacist?

Well the Mariners did basically eat all of the money in both those deals so yeah they were kinda albatrosses. Doesn’t make trading for a bigger one the right move tho

Sure cripple the franchise for next 3 to 5 years with these contracts instead of being patient for one year to rid the two bad ones.
Btw, Sad Diaz is going yo get paid soon!

Ottavino grew up a Yankee fan and Britton was already a Yankee, we probably weren't having much success getting those guys here. As for Lemahieu, sure, but maybe we should have just believed in McNeil?

Didn’t say it was the right move, just saying your projected move wasn’t possible unless the Wilpons increased payroll which we know how that goes
