    Im thinking Kluber is off the table for the Yankees at this point, which is why Sheffield was traded to Seattle.

    I can't see wanting Machado when you have Andujar...

    Are Torres and Torreyes on the trading block?

    Also shouldn't Abreu and Acevedo be ready to come up next year?
    No one wants Torreyes.  Torres I would hope not. Andujar, I'd be open to moving.  Point being, Machado would be most likely if they move Andujar.

    Not so sure.  No way Sheffield would be the key piece in a Kluber trade.  Wouldn't be traded back for a better pitcher.  Andujar or something long those lines would need to be key.

    Report: Mariners contacted Yankees, Mets about Cano trade
    6h ago

    SEATTLE WA - SEPTEMBER 5 Robinson Cano 22 of the Seattle Mariners takes a swing during an at-bat in a game against the Baltimore Orioles at Safeco Field on September 5 2018 in Seattle Washington The Mariners game 5-2

    As Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto continues to reimagine his roster, the executive appears to be thinking about a future without Robinson Cano.

    Dipoto contacted the Yankees and Mets about a trade involving the eight-time All-Star, major-league sources told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

    A potential deal between the Mariners and Yankees involving Cano and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was discussed, according to Rosenthal's sources, but it didn't go anywhere because New York wanted significant cash included in the swap.

    Cano, who would have likely played first base with his former club, is owed $120 million over the next five seasons, while Ellsbury still has $47.2 million left on his deal over the next two years.

    The Mets don't look like a match for the 36-year-old because of second baseman Jeff McNeil's strong finish last season, and because they also have first baseman Peter Alonso coming up the pipeline. If the Mariners were willing to pay the entirety of Cano's remaining contract and include a top prospect in a trade, things could change, a source told Rosenthal.

    Seattle has reportedly been trying to trade Cano for a week.

    Dipoto and Yankees GM Brian Cashman already swung a deal this offseason centered around pitcher James Paxton, which came after Seattle traded catcher Mike Zunino to the Tampa Bay Rays.

    Cano only appeared in 80 games in 2018 after violating the league's joint drug policy, hitting .303/.374/.471 with 10 home runs and 50 RBIs.

    Over the course of his 14-year career, he's been one of the league's most durable players, averaging 148 games per season. Cano also owns a career slash line of .304/.355/.493.

    Probably because it's the only place he'd accept a trade.

    It would honestly take them taking Ellsbury and paying down Cano by at least $60 mil.  Even then I'm not sure...

    Why?  The absolutely only thing I can think of is that he would be pressing for his big contract.  Other than that, he's been one of the most consistent players in baseball, is from the east coast and is not young.  Not sure what else you could want.

    Consistent?  

    He had one of the WORST two months in all of baseball for a star like him last year.  He would have been booed out of NY if he performed like that for two months.  Batted .192  He would never have lasted.

    He was on my fantasy team so I watched him very closely.  What he did when he came out of his slump was just magical though.  It was one hell of a tare.

    That is why I say he won't work out.

    Thoughts?

    I'll take a sample size of 8 years over two months.

    Plenty of players have struggled in New York and done well, first basemen even (Tino, Giambi) and those guys were in much much more difficult situations that Goldschmidt would be.  Baseball players struggle.  Yankees fans know that.

    I know his full body of work is impressive, no doubt, like I said for his remainder of the season after his slump he was a beast.

    I just don't think he would make it here.

    Anybody would make a trade for him for sure.

    And in that case it's one year and Greg Bird.  No biggie.  I have as little worries about him as just about any player.

    Yeah, which is why I trade him in a heartbeat for one year of Goldschdmidt.  If he's in the org, he's starting the year in the minors unless he tears the cover off the ball in Tampa.

    So here is the test for Hal.  Corbin is meeting with the Yankees, wants to be a Yankee, but his salary would likely take them to the luxury tax.  Do they lose out based on that or do they sign him and go over?  Can't see how they sign two relievers + Corbin without going well over.  We shall find out soon enough.

    They'll most likely take the tax.  They have such a great core of a team that they can make a run for the next ten years.

    Only thing is Sanchez is almost about 1.5 years younger. But offensively and defensively it wouldn't be too bad. I think JT's power numbers would increase.
