And BYB said it here before any baseball insider. Read this:
Now take from that what you will. I suggest it's an idea from Mike O'Hara that any smart baseball person could conclude, especially looking at the personnel the Yankees have and their needs. But that's OK... baseball insider Buster Olney turned it into his own rumor...@BleednYankeeBlu with Murph on the team I am ok flipping Sanchez. Could end up being a Montero. SD and NYY have a good relationship too— Mike O'Hara (@mikeyoh21) July 21, 2015
“...there is a sense that with Brian McCann and John Ryan Murphy established in the big leagues, the Yankees will listen to offers for 22-year-old catcher Gary Sanchez, who has improved this season and was recently promoted to Triple-A.”
And now that you come to BYB for news, as well as analysis... let me also thank you for trusting and understanding how baseball insiders work. For example... notice the way these predictions or "rumors" are floated. These insiders do it every day. They find a nugget, kind of like the way Olney found our tweet and they recycle it.
From there, other blogs and major publications will pick them up. Then... if something happens, great, they look like superstars... or "INSIDERS". If nothing happens, life goes on... "Oh well, my source was wrong." So I'm just gonna place this picture right here:
You've been called out Buster. Take note... and I'm gonna be perfectly honest with you, because that's what we do here at BYB; We have no idea if Gary Sanchez is tradeable. We here just feel like it's common sense, and so, Mike O'Hara floated it. We're not looking for credit. What we are suggesting is, this rumor crap isn't brain surgery.
Enjoy your Sunday... and thanks to the readers and BYB fans for coming to us every single day for Yankee fun. We love you.
