Well, not totally, but for me it was! I went to be early! That’s parenthood on a Friday for you! I missed this news!

The Yankees have appeared to have cut 2 veteran Yankees. Nathan Eovaldi and Dustin Ackley. Wow… they’re not kidding about getting young, huh?
The New York Post writes:

“Knowing Nathan Eovaldi was going to miss the 2017 season because of Tommy John surgery and Dustin Ackley had been replaced by Ronald Torreyes as a utility infielder, the Yankees designated Eovaldi for assignment and unconditionally released Ackley on Friday.”

Look, with the designation of Eovaldi, you can damn be sure the Yankees will be making more significant moves this off season. The question is, what will they be? We could obviously use a starter, and you gotta wonder if the Yankees will pursue someone like Rich Hill or if they will try and trade for someone like Chris Sale.
Whatever the case, I was very surprised when I woke up this morning. Let me rephrase… I wasn’t surprised, I was taken back… but satisfied.
