Breaking: Yankees acquire LHP James Paxton in exchange for LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson, and OF Dom Thompson-Williams

The Yankees have made their first splash of the offseason by acquiring the Big Maple, James Paxton, from the Seattle Mariners. Fresh off his second-consecutive season at the top of the Mariner’s rotation, Paxton did not come cheap as the Yankees traded away their top prospect, Justus Sheffield, along with breakout prospects Erik Swanson and Dominic Thompson-Williams.

New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels (04/28)

Masahiro Tanaka (3-2, 4.97 ERA) vs. Garrett Richards (3-0, 3.46 ERA)

The line movement for tonight’s game has been fascinating to watch. The money line opened with the Angels and Yankees at -110, which ultimately means the game is a pickem. To see who was favored you really had to dive into the spread, where the Angels were “technically” favored since they have the -1.5 spread (though they were listed as not likely with +175) and the Yankees were underdogs at +1.5 (but adversely were favored big time at -210). After an extra inning game it was clear nobody knew who was going to win. 

With even the book makers unable to pick a winner, it is safer to look at the over/under. Today’s over under and its trending is down-right blasphemous. The game opened at a shockingly low 8.5, and has dropped an entire run to 7.5. Did they forget tee-ball Tanaka was on the mound? Even with a bounce back game his last start, the Yankees still hit the over. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, just a combination made in heaven.  

Logically, with this being an entirely gut pick, we should look other areas. Grab a profitable Yankee line perhaps, or see if a +1.5 Yankee spread is still out there, but what fun is that? Masahiro Tanaka and the over, go grab it. 

Final Call: Over 7.5 (-110)
