Chasin’ 28 Episode 8: LeMahieu Is Back and Kluber Joins Rotation

On this week’s episode of the Chasin’ 28 Podcast, Ricky Keeler, Alexis Farinacci, and Robert Coles start the show off by reacting to the New York Yankees finally signing DJ LeMahieu to a 6-year, $90 million deal. Was the trio surprised it took six years to get the deal done and was the contract a win for both sides?

The Yankees also added to their rotation with the reported signing of Corey Kluber to a 1-year, $11 million. The trio discusses whether or not $11 million was too much money, the impact Kluber can have on the rotation, does it mean Masahiro Tanaka is not coming back to the Bronx, and would New York have been better off signing pitchers that received less money than Kluber?

Over the last week, the San Diego Padres added Joe Musgrove to their rotation in a trade with the Pirates. Should the Yankees have been in on Musgrove and is there such a thing as teams asking more from the Yankees in trades?

In the minor league segment, they talk about three Yankees being named to the Baseball America Top 100 prospect list to begin 2021 and they talk about the first base position in the organization.

Finally, the trio discusses the George Springer signing by the Blue Jays, the disturbing Jared Porter news this week, and they give their final thoughts.
