  • Wonder if machado’s antics would give the Yankees pause. I think they may
    You don't want him there.  I wouldn't want him there.
    I am somewhat indifferent. I don't like the guy a little bit, but he's a hell of a player.  I trust this front office these days.  
    Front office won't go for him.  Yanks need pitching.  They're stacked for batting for a few years.  What they need is a few guys like Gardner that can get on base and steal one but that brand of baseball is going too...

    They need a legit number 1.  Severino isn't there yet and I love Severino.

    And who is that?

    And I completely agree that they need an ace. I just don't know where that comes from without getting rid of Andujar or Torres.

    They need to get one.  Who can they trade for?  Who would YOU like?

    We discussed this before, I would try for DeGrom.  I would even try for the Rays' Blake Snell.

    Dallas Keuchel is the top current free agent list and Clayton Kershaw is definitely going to opt out and try to get a better multi-year deal

    Now with Didi out for 2019 the Yankees might try harder for Machado, but Hechavarria can fill the gap as long as they sign a big bat or Sanchez can regain his stroke.

    I know the outfield is crowded but Bryce Harper has said he was willing to play first base and with that left bat at Yankee Stadium I can only imagine the bombs that will heading into the short right field bleachers. I know Voit was stellar in September, but he's still unproven for the most part.

    Yanks aren't getting Snell unless they insanely overpay.  DeGrom would be an overpay too and would start with Andujar, if they're lucky.  I think they should do that, but it also leaves a gaping hole in the lineup (infield), especially with Didi out.  Manny fits that bill.  

    Fulmer, no thanks.  Who else? There isn't anyone...

    Kershaw has 3 years and $98 mil left. If he leaves the Dodgers its for at least 5 years, right? That is a god awful contract and one the Yankees need to avoid.

    No thanks on Keuchel. Corbin might as well already be working out in Tampa. That is good as done, right?  So you have Severino, Tanaka, Corbin. Sign CC for the 5 spot. Then you either trade depth for an ace or go the Happ route.

    Manny vs. Harper. I can't see the Yanks signing Harper, outside of the fact that this lineup is missing on thing...lefties.  Manny fits the infield hole a lot more.

    Gonna be interesting. This team has to go big with Boston on the verge of the dance after knocking them out.

    You don't have to do free agent and just do straight up trades hence degrom and Snell.

    I do wonder what the Nationals are going to do if Harper jumps ship?  Do they unload Scherzer and Strasburg?

    If the Yanks can't get a legit #1 then they just reinforce the bullpen more and expect 2-3 innings out of a starter in the playoffs considering that's how the game is played now...

    The Yanks have a very, very good farm team and can let some of that go for a great starter.

    Many teams wish they had the Yankees' problems right now.

    I agree with you on Fulmer.

    Also Keuchel and Kershaw aren't going anywhere.

    I am not disagreeing with you a little bit.  I get the trades for DeGrom and Snell and when I say overpay, I mean in terms of players.  Think Andjuar/Torres, Florial, Shef and Abreu/Ace.  That may not even get it done, but yeah, my trade proposal sucks.  I just don't see the Rays dealing a player within the division, especially Yanks, unless it is an offer they can't refuse.    Yanks are in an amazing position that they have a young core in the big leagues graduating all those players and still have a top 10 farm.

    They should definitely resign Robertson.

    Tons of teams do with they were the Yanks. Yanks are in an amazing position. Core young players including a top 10 player in the game. Stacked farm, and finally have financial flexibility.  They should go on an amazing run here.  There are no excuses.  They have to get this offseason right though.

    The Harper, Scherzer thing is interesting.  Best free agent signing in a very long time? Ever?

    I personally would take Harper in a heartbeat.  I don't think he leaves though, that with Robles coming up most likely next year.  I mean he has to like what's coming through the pipes.

    If he does go?  I'd have to imagine that their top two pitchers are going to want to go somewhere else.

    I still don't think the Yanks need or should want Corbin.

    I think the Yankees try for Machado. Harper can still leave Washington. His replacement is there. They took a big step back this year with 3 top starters. But I would take Machado over Harper. I don't think Stanton is getting traded. He actually has it good here with the DH situation. And can play OF from time to time. I don't know if Corbin will make much difference. Arizona lost the division with him and Greinke.

    I have become less and less enthused with the concept of signing machado throughout the playoffs. Kinda want them to go Harper at this point, even though I have been against it for so long

    So as River Ave Blues points out.  While the Red Sox have the highest payroll in baseball, they beat the Dodgers and Yankees who both slashed payroll this year.

    Time for the Yankees to get back to being the Yankees.  Big offseason.

    Think I am out on Machado though.

    I'll reserve judgement until the offseason plays out, but the leaks out of the Yankees today are quite annoying.  They better be spending big this off season.

    Mr. Hankey and Shallow Hal will tell Cashman to sign Machado no matter the cost. 6 years and $300Mil is a starting point.
