The rumors were flying yesterday in the Yankees Universe. It was reported that the Yankees had made Max Scherzer, as in Max "One of the two best pitchers available on the market" Scherzer, a six to seven year offer to join their rotation. Although they were just rumors, it definitely caused a buzz around here.
Comments of the Day
First we were dealing with the aftermath of the Blue Jays main trade. One Greg Kirkland reminded people that the Yankees needed offense before the Blue Jays & Red Sox made their moves.
Andrew also weighed in with his thoughts on Billy Beane's move.
Now onto the Max Scherzer stuff. As thoughts were bouncing around, so was the humor.
Not everyone got the joke though. No worries, we were all new once upon a time. Except for LTL I think.
Harlan and I don't see any reason to worry about the Yankees potentially relying on the Triage Triad to bounce back next year...
I'm here for you, Waffles!
Shockingly, talks of the Yankees signing Yoan Moncada led to puns.
Still nothing confirmed, except that the thought of Scherzer in our rotation is pretty enticing.
Again, we got jokes!
Finally, Q-TDSK brings up a great point about why the Yankees should not always try and match Boston move for move.

Poop indeed, Ron Swanson!
Honorable Mod Mention
Wise words from Harlan on the subject of trade proposals. Remember, both teams have needs and quantity does not equal quality.
- If the Yankees signed Scherzer, what do you think the rotation would look like at the beginning of the year?
- Favorite juice?
If the Yankees are planning on signing Scherzer, here's hoping they do it sooner rather than later. The waiting game sucks. Meanwhile, the game of football is being played today. Feel free to use this as your open thread. Will LTL spoil my fantasy playoff dreams? Will Andrew go for broke?
Milkshake. I parodied the song Milkshake. I think that's a new low.
