So, one week down, and hopefully many, many more to go.
While there was one non-episode related post here this week, on Chase Headley’s departure from New York, the website hasn’t really gotten humming yet. That’s because the main focus has been rolling out the podcast, but rest assured that Locked On Yankees is going to be more than just audio.
It may take some time to figure out exactly what the voice here is and what content goes up here, but that’s okay. There will be some experimenting. Some of it will succeed, some won’t. It’s a (sorry for this word) process, because it’s a blank slate, because it takes time to do that experimenting, because it also hinges on what you, the listener and reader, want to hear and see.
In this episode…
Jacoby Ellsbury isn’t going anywhere and Manny Machado isn’t coming to the Bronx, at least not right now. The swiftness of the Giancarlo Stanton trade may have warped our minds as to how quickly things happen, but on the whole, this is a slow baseball offseason, and there are many waiting games that the Yankees have to play as they go about the rest of their winter business.
While the winter meetings ended quietly after a rousing start, there was some news at the conclusion, with the Yankees losing four players in the Rule 5 draft. Craig Goldstein from Baseball Prospectus joins the show for the Farm Report, taking a look at what was lost but might return, as well as the expectations for Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, plus analysis of Clint Frazier’s situation.
Plus, it’s the debut of the Friday Mailbag, with questions about the Yankees’ third base situation and needs in the starting rotation, as well as a fun thought exercise about players out of position.
