Yankees Trade is Just Awesome! 

James “Big Maple” Paxton is a awesome get for the Yanks, don’t believe me let’s talk this out.   Firstly Paxton a southpaw tossed a no-hitter last season, and appears to be on track to becoming one of baseball’s next great starting pitchers. He just turned 30 years old, and is in his second arbitration year. MLB Trade Rumors projects that Paxton will earn $9 million in arbitration this winter. (Maybe a little less) That is a steal!!!! He is due to become a free agent following the 2020 season, so the Yankees have him under team control for two full seasons. Paxton had an 3.76 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP over 160.1 innings for the Mariners in 2018. He struck out 11.7 batters per nine, while allowing only 1.3 home runs and 2.4 walks per nine. Hopefully those numbers stay the same in the Bronx.  Brian Cashman made it clear The Yankees’ where he’ll bent this winter is to upgrade the starting staff. That’s exactly what he did here. Although they have been connected to a number of free agents, well duh they are always are even when they are not, as well as trade candidates, the Bombers acquire Mariners ace James Paxton.Which should help to solidify the starting rotation. Paxton is a strikeout pitcher who is on a quick rise. Paxton made baseball history last May when he tossed a no-hitter against the Jays. (A EL East Team) He had 10-plus strikeout games 8 as well, including a career-high 16 in May against the Athletics. (Our Wildcard Foes). For 9 million which will most likely be saved when Gray is traded this is an awesome pick up that allows the Yankees to still go big game hunting. 🤔🤔

Let’s G⚾️ Yankees!!
