    lol it just sounds like he's trying to stir the pot to get a reaction from people.

    Yes and to be fair any stat you look at has Mo being superior to Goose (FIP, ERA, WAR, K/9, BB/9) But Gossage said those stats where shit and i don't know baseball lol

    Maybe. Either that or he's an angry old man who can't let go of the past.

    Reliever Dellin Betances has lost his arbitration hearing to the Yankees, Fan Rag’s Jon Heyman writes (Twitter links). Betances will receive $3MM next season rather than the $5MM he had been seeking.

    3. Sabremetrics are for people who don't know baseball.

    The comments from Betances are juicy and well justified.

    He absolutely should. The use of him has been gross. Giradi has abused him. He may never make it to free agency anything close to the same pitcher.

    NYY president talking shit too now about Betances' agent saying he asked for closer's money lol. He was an all-star 3 years in a row and basically throws until his arm falls off for the pinstripes. Organization is drowning in money and haggling over this stuff is ridiculous.

    What a whiner. Let's not be over dramatic. He's a 28 year old that is 6ft 8 260 lbs. He has thrown 254 career MLB innings with his workload DECREASING every season. 90 84 73. And that's after being a starter in the minors.

    He had one more appearance than osuna last year and one less ip ( not counting osuna 9 ip in postseason). And osuna is 21 with a TJ surgery under his belt)

    He should have asked for 4m and maybe he would have won.

    The Yankees should be absolutely embarrassed about this.

    lol at criticizing for asking for closer's money, when he's a top-5 reliever in the game. Embarrassing.
