Steve Somers: Yankees 'have to' get rid of Aaron Hicks, Josh Donaldson


Steve Somers joined Keith McPherson on WFAN Friday night, and while he talked about some of his Mets desires for the offseason, he made it clear what the Yankees need to do to finally get past the ALCS.

“One thing you have to do is get rid of [Aaron] Hicks and get rid of [Josh] Donaldson, Steve said. “Try to eat some of that money and get rid of him. He’s a strikeout waiting to happen.”

Not surprisingly, Steve also said the Yankees need to keep Aaron Judge, and he believes that’s what will happen.

“I don’t see Judge going anywhere,” Steve said. “Not San Francisco, not Boston, and he’s not going to the Mets. He’s the face of the Yankees and he’s a popular guy. He’s the leader of the team, arguably gonna be the next captain of the team. He’s gonna be MVP. He ought to go into Hal Steinbrenner’s office and say, ‘Hey partner.’”
