I love Red Thunder, but there has been sprinklings and rumblings of talk involving he in trades.  Even when the Stanton stuff was going on, there was a brief time that Clint Frazier's name was attached to those trade talks.  Nothing happened then, and many of us were relieved, but now his name is popping up again, from a very reliable writer... George King III of the New York Post.

"According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Yankees and Pirates are discussing a deal that would bring right-hander Gerrit Cole from Pittsburgh and possibly would include outfielder Clint Frazier leaving The Bronx."

Now Cole is good, but I would hate to give up Frazier.  Here's the thing though, and I've expressed this before. While we love Frazier, much like we loved Rob Refsnyder, he may not have a role on this team... at least right now. We have Stanton, Judge, Hicks, Gardner and Ellsbury.  You see what I mean?

We shall see what comes out of this trade rumor. It is quite interesting.

  1. We will live to regret trading Frazier, who has the potential to be our LF for the next 10 yrs after Gardy is done in a yr. Remember Jay Buchner! Cole is typical NL fly ball pitcher
