Hank owns the Yankees, he should have plenty of money, if his wallet is tight then shame on him.

Looks like Verkander is going back to Houston. I'm OK with that.

If it's Yanks/Houston in playoffs in 2022, I don't think I will be OK with it.

Yes, on one of the big SS.  

I think Seager is the best fit, because he is a lefty bat, and probably won't be able to play SS too long term, so he won't even be blocking the big SS prospect we have in the minors (he was in A ball, so he's a couple of years away at least).  Then you can move Seager somewhere else.

I'm big on the LH bat as well and Seager has some great advanced metrics on hitting high velo.

Agree on his move to 3B as well.

But his defensive metrics at SS are worse than Torres and Didi.  I cringe to think of how fans will react to a SS who is defensively worse than the last 2 who played the position.

If he hits well enough, very few will care.  Jeter started out with little range at SS, and got progressively worse over his career, but because he hit .300 every year, it was a net positive.

Derek won 5 gold gloves so he handled what he could reach, although Carlos has some thoughts regarding that…

and that .300 was in a lot of plate appearances making it even more impressive (I give it a “6”).
O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
