Yankees Acquire The Big Maple, James Paxton – The Bronx Pinstripes Show

The Bronx Pinstripes Show #286

The Yankees made a major trade last week, acquiring James Paxton from Seattle for Justus Sheffield, Erik Swanson, and Dom Thompson-Williams.

Then we discuss the Yankees rotation for 2019, how Paxton impacts the rest of the offseason, Cashman’s comments about the rotation and infield depth, and mailbag questions about the Yankees farm system and having too many lefties in the rotation.
