    Both are 30 years old.

    Guess who they are? Chris Carter and Pablo SAndyballs. Love the Kung Fu Panda era lol

    This is a very good signing. He will be behind Bird/Austin/Holiday.

    Carter hit .222 with 41 HRs and 94 RBIs and a .321 OBP 1 year $3m 30 years old

    compared to

    Trumbo hit .254 with 47 HRs and 108 RBIs and a .316 OBP 3 years $40m 31 years old

    He will see a couple hundred ABs this season, most coming off the bench. Bargin deal.

    Its fricken $3m dollars! Pablo made more than twice that for lifting a pen as a signing bonus.
    This is why TheAnalyst is awesome. Kung Fu Panda= the biggest free agent bust of this decade. He makes signing Carl Pavano look like us signing Kershaw.

      Lets not forget Carl Crawful. And how about a few players that didnt even play for the Sox yet they spent millions on like Moncada $63m and good ole Rusney Castillo for a 7 year $72 million dollar signing LOL Still 5 more years of Rusney at $10+ million a year. Who? Exactly. Also another 10 more years of paying Manny Ramirez MORE than what the Yankees just dropped on Carter!

      But Chris was a terrible signing :-)

      • Sanchez decides against WBC, will remain with Yankees all spring

        Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez has changed his mind and decided not to play in the World Baseball Classic this spring, reports WFAN's Sweeny Murti.

        Sanchez had originally committed to playing for the Dominican Republic team. He will now be with the Yankees for the duration of Spring Training.

        The 24-year-old catcher hit .299/.376/.657 with 20 home runs and 42 RBI in only 53 games played last season. Sanchez finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting.

          Lol, I totally forgot about Rusney, who is rotting in the minor leagues. Red Sox nation is certainly a hypocritical bunch, aren't they?

            Led the NL in HRs last year. Big power low BA.
            I'm ok with it. Birds backup / PH. hit 41HRs last year in Milwaukee. Bird/Austin/Carter. Not bad to have a dude with 40 HR power coming in to pitch hit late in games.

            great signing, low cost gives the team some more pop that it needed

              For the life of me I cant understand why all of a sudden this season the power hitters got dissed.... a year or 2 ago guys like Trumbo, Carter, EE, Bautista, all would be hot commodities. The lack of Carter interest is extremely surprising. He was about to go to Japan for crying out loud!

              Cater hit .222 with 41 HRs and 94 RBIs last year on a terrible Brewers team.
              Meanwhile Colby Rasmus hit .206 with 15 HRs just signed with the Rays for $2m more than Carter in 2017.

              This is an extremely low risk, very high reward for the Bombers.

              • If you enjoyed the James Kaprielian one I posted earlier, you'll like this one too. Great pieces.

                  Worried about him and Judge together in the lineup might need to play 1 or the other to many strikeouts

                    This is true. Very similar traits as of right now. Although, I would be happy if Judge hits 41 HRs this year lol

                    • BA is becoming a joke with their rankings:

                      5) Torres
                      39) Frazier
                      45) Rutherford
                      85) Mateo
                      87) Kaprielian
                      90) Judge
                      91) Sheffield

                      For comparison, here's there 2016 Midseason Update:

                      19) Mateo
                      21) Frazier
                      27) Torres
                      42) Judge
                      69) Sheffield
                      99) Kaprielian
                      NR) Rutherford

                      So Sheffield for dominating as a 20 year old lefty gets dropped 22 spots.... yeah. Makes sense. Some how the Red Sox have a better farm now again lol.

                      Id argue that Torres Kap Frazier and Rutherford should be top 25 at least. Shef probably top 50. MAteo and Judge after that top 75. And Chance Adams up there as well making his debut.

                        • Bird was on pace for almost 40 hrs as a rookie. I'm sure he can hit 30, but he was never our top prospect like Cashmanis saying. There were always guys rated higher..

                            "Because the Axe Bat "locks" a hitters hands in place with the curved knob, the idea is that it provides a stronger more even swing."

                            Mookie Betts used this in 2016.
                            I can see this help with the wrist action.

                            • Severino worked out with Pedro over the offseason

                              Yankees pitcher Luis Severino worked on his mechanics this offseason with Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez in the Dominic Republic, reports Mike M***eo of the NY Daily News.

                              After coming off a promising stint in 2015, the 22-year-old Severino struggled last season. He was 3-8 with a 5.83 ERA over 22 appearances split between the rotation and bullpen.

                              Severino sought out Pedro's assistance after a mutual friend put the two in touch.

                              "Pedro is a really nice guy and was really available to work with me," Severino said. "It was very cool, very nice of him."

                              The two reportedly met on five different occasions throughout the offseason, with Pedro watching Severino throw and providing tips from his observations.

                              Despite achieving more success as a reliever last season, Brian Cashman and the Yankees still envision Severino as a starter. Cashman has said that if Severino does not win a spot in the rotation during Spring Training, he will be sent to Triple-A to remain a starter.

                              Really want to see this kid play well this year. Hopefully he rebounds and gets that confidence back. I think trying to push him to the #2 last year was too much too soon. Lets hope to see him back dueling again.

                              With that said, I mentioned last year that he could be our next Mariano Rivera if he does not pan out as a starter. His relief stuff was unreal.

                              • Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke with the media Tuesday in Tampa. Here's what we learned...

                                RHP Masahiro Tanaka will get the start on Opening Day.
                                The plan is to use Matt Holiday primarily as a designated hitter.
                                RHP Adam Warren will start games during Spring Training and have a chance to win a spot in the rotation.
                                Girardi would like to return and manage the Yankees beyond this season.
                                Chris Carter's role isn't yet determined and will "get ironed out as the season goes along."
                                Despite the Yankees' youth movement, expectations of contending this season have not changed.
                                There are more questions in the starting rotation than in the past, but he feels good about it.
                                He hasn't yet decided how the top of the starting lineup will shake out.
