Hello folks, hope you’re all doing well. We’re still riding out the shockwaves of the dual DJ LeMahieu-Corey Kluber signings from two days ago, so naturally they take precedence for our topics today.

Josh starts us off by delivering his thoughts on how Cashman’s decision-making in signing LeMahieu and Kluber is emblematic of his methods, while Ryan Chichester brings us reactions from here and across the Yankee fandom on the return of LeMahieu. Peter opines that the Yankees wouldn’t benefit from staying behind the luxury tax following the signings, and Joe highlights the Yankees’ activity on social media this week.

Fun Questions

1. Who would you bet on to have a higher fWAR this season — Corey Kluber or Gary Sánchez?

2. Will we see the Bauer and Springer markets move now that LeMahieu is off the board?
