BBB Reacts: Yankees' disappointing end to the 2018 season

Well, it's been just about a week now since the Boston Red Sox eliminated the Yankees from playoff contention and we've all had some time to stew on it.  Obviously not the ending any of us wanted and made even more painful due to the fact that it was our arch-rivals who put the nail in the coffin.Some of our contributors weigh in below about how this season ended, what to make of it all, and where the Yankees go from here heading into 2019.

Yankees One Of Three Teams In On Julio Pablo Martinez

It's been a very slow going off-season Yankee fans the hot stove is more like the cold stove. Yesterday Ben Badler (Baseball America) broke the news that the New York Yankees are one of three teams (Texas and Miami) considered to be the favorites to sign top Cuban prospect outfielder Julio Pablo Martinez who's said to be 21-years-old.

Per Badler:
“Based on his present talent level, Martinez is ready for a high Class A or Double-A assignment. A lefty around 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, Martinez in his last season in Cuba hit .333/.469/.498 with 52 walks, 30 strikeouts and six home runs in 264 plate appearances with 24 stolen bases in 29 tries”.

Both New York and Miami would probably have to wait until the 2018 signing period begins (July 2nd) Texas still has enough money left due to missing out on Ohtani.

If the Bombers end up signing Martinez that would only strengthen their already strong farm system, and I can't imagine Miami would be a very appealing situation, but I've been wrong before.
