Rangers trade Gallo to Yankees

It doesn’t sound like it is official yet, but likely close enough. Joey Gallo is one guy I really would have liked for the Blue Jays, even if we are up to our arm pits in outfielders. Every OOTP version that comes out, I try to trade for Gallo. Good defense, power and walks....what’s not to like. I guess a high batting average would be ok too, but rarely do you get everything. I do worry a bit about how well he’ll age. Now I’ll cheer for him to age quickly.
