Pinstripe Alley open thread - 11/30/20

Monday’s open thread

MLB: Game One-Philadelphia Phillies at New York Yankees Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another week at Pinstripe Alley, which will promptly begin with the end of November. It’s a good day to read PSA, as we’re kicking our offseason coverage up a bit with the re-introduction of an annual favorite: the free agent target series.

Josh will get us started with a post on the Yankees’ pursuit of their 2018-19 MVP, DJ LeMahieu. You’ll also get your own chance to weigh in on who the Yankees’ top priority should be outside of DJ, as the FanPost prompt will focus on which additions you’d want to see the Yankees bring in for 2021. Later on, Cooper will revisit Jackie Robinson’s 1952 criticism of the Yankees’ racist policies on This Day in Yankees History, and John will continue the roster report cards series with a post on the exciting-but-all-too-brief season of Giancarlo Stanton.

Fun Questions

  1. Out of morbid curiosity, are there are any circumstances at all that you’d be willing to bring back J.A. Happ? What kind of contract would he have to take for you to be okay with it?
  2. News broke late last night that the Royals signed starting pitcher Mike Minor to a two-year contract. With the Yankees in need of starters, is he someone that you would’ve wanted to see them pursue?
