Could either be a really interesting or sort of uneventful week on the blog. Let's take a look.
Rangers: The Rangers have started another holiday roll, and will hope to continue it tonight in the first of their back to back, home and homes with Carolina. They may have Brassard back tonight or tomorrow and Talbot will start one of the games. Glass is still on the team and that's their biggest problem. Also, the NHL Movement freeze began at Midnight, so they can't make any trades till it ends, though I think they can promote players if the need to, and they should.
Knicks: LOL. They might start making trades any minute now, as earlier this week they made everyone available, and other teams are already open for business and trading people.
Giants: It would behoove the Giants to stop winning. They have 2 games left and right now they'd have a top 10 draft position. I'm concerned they might keep winning and blow it. Though I can't root against them during actual games, I would like 7 rounds of top ten picks when the draft starts at the end of April.
Yankees: Maybe they'll finally hire a hitting coach and 1B coach. Then again, maybe they won't. Now we sort of have to remain vigilant that they don't do anything to block Refsnyder or Pirela. It feels like they won't. In fact as of right now it feels like 2B and 1 spot in the bullpen will be left open and claimable by any prospect who can prove he is ready.
It will also be interesting to see if their re-organization becomes more apparent. Likewise, it would be nice to hear from the Analytics Dept. on Eovaldi and some of the other stuff. Also, could this be the week that Moncada finally hits the market?
So, important games for the Rangers, important considerations for the Knicks, playing out the string for the Giants, and we must keep a constant vigil over the Yanks.
Have a great week and the very happiest of holidays, readers.
