Alright, the ARod stuff is over, the Giants ones looked good, the Rangers haven't made any more trades, and Carmelo Anthony is a great American. Let's take a look at what comes next.
Yankees: The Tyler Austin Era finally begins. Holy crap has this kid been through hell on his way to his big. First, he overcame testicular C. Then after making a big splash and getting fast tracked through the minors (Cash called him "elite"), Tyler started to have issues with his hands. He sort of recovered, but then didn't look like Tyler Austin anymore and ended up getting released, then re-signed. And that was a good thing, because this year, the Real Tyler Austin stood up again and he has been mashing. He'll finally make his debut today -- roughly 3 years after he would have had he not injured his hands.
Back when Tyler was chosen, it was sort of a watershed moment in the Yankee draft. It was 2010, and the Yanks had been having trouble finding hitters outside of the first two rounds or so for awhile. They had a habit of drafting athletes they believed would hit. Tyler was the first kid they took who could flat fricking hit without having to be projected. The next year they took Bird, and on and on, and we're about to have a bunch of good homegrown hitters again. Tyler is a great kid and incredibly easy to root for.
Giants: Eli and Odell were healthy sctratches last night, but the ones on O and D looked good. The depth looked poor, especially on the second team OL, which lead to hurried throws and turnovers from Nassib. He short armed some tosses, which was unusual. Both Apple (knee) and Sterling (groin) left early, but the injuries weren't serious. Geremy Davis had a hammy, that's supposed to be okay, but those can linger. Let's hope they can get through the preseason with no more injuries. And they still have to fix the OL.
Knicks: Carmelo has saved team USA time and time again. Haven't seen Spain or Lithuania play, so no more Knick sightings.
Rangers: Still haven't made anymore trades, and are really hoping to land Harvard's Jimmy Vesey, who, I believe, becomes a free agent this coming week.
Have a great one and thanks for reading!
