    My prediction is the Phillies get Manny for about 310 and the Nats get Harper for 350.

    Tulo has played 66 games in 2 years.  Ellsbury has played more recently.

    Gardner lost his job to Andrew McCutchen

    Miguel Andujar (who I love), was removed from a playoff game because of defensive purposes.

    After getting within 1 game of the world series, then winning 100 games and losing to your arch rival (who rolled through the playoffs and had the highest payroll in baseball), these are the guys you're counting on in 2019?  Plus a big bounce back from Sanchez?

    So as of now, this is the Yankees...

    Sahchez (question mark)
    Bird/Voit (huge question mark)
    Torres (the man, but young)
    Tulo (lol)
    Miggy (the man, but horrible defense)
    Judge (the actual man)
    Stanton (expect a real god year)
    Hicks (solid)
    Gardner (lost his job)

    And absolutely no depth at this moment.  Need more.

    Then Drob gets an extremely reasonable contract from the Phillies, but the Yankees are gonna end up paying Britton $40 mil+ probably and I don't think is as good.

    Be the Yanks, Hal.  2017 cannot be the peak for this team.

    Bubba Crosby is our center fielder. There's no other way to explain it.

    The fuggin Red Sox just stomped the Yankees on the way to a world series while spending the most money in the game and Hal seems indifferent to the fact that two of the top 10 or 15 players in baseball and are young are available.  Instead "we made a commitment to Tulo" who has played less than Ellsbury and hasn't been good in 4 years

    I just keep repeating to myself..."bubba crosby is our centerfield...bubba crosby is our centerfield...bubba crosby is our centerfield"...but the difference is that was George and this is Hal.

    haha, they do.  This is the only team i really get worked up for anymore....especially when you have judge, severino, sanchez, torres and miggy making the league minumum and you bring infield Ellsbury for the league minimum rather than spending money. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!

    2010 I think. If they don’t do what it takes to win with this core, I very much agree

    Winning doesn't matter.  They rake in the cash.  No need to "waste" money to win, nor sell the cash cow

    Over the tax. Even moving gray they would only be a few mil under which they won’t maintain for the whole season, so seems like they’re going over this year.

    would have preferred the Robertson contract but seems like that was never an option with the playofff stuff

    did they really sign a ground ball reliever only to have that infield kick it around?!

    So this pretty much means the Yankees are getting him since my philosophy is that the exact opposite of whatever this dude reports, happens.



    That said, I don't think it is. Forget his bat, gonna be fun when CC and Britton are getting tons of ground balls....

    I really don’t get what’s going on with machado. Now they’re saying his wife wants to go to New York...gotta figure he’s squeezing the last few cents out of the Phillies or he is really desperate for the Yankees. 

    He wants New York
    his wife wants New York 
    New York wants him (on their terms clearly)

    And they can’t figure this out?

    Or, more likely, he doesn’t give that much of a shit about New York but he wants the Phillies and White Sox to think he does.

    I have been convincing myself that I am good with miggy. He’s something like $30 million a year less and awesome. But if that is the case, I just don’t see how tulo fits. There’s no Fucking way they go 3 months with that infield defense. No way 

    As it stands now, I don’t think this team is quite there or good enough to beat Boston but it is still a really good team. If things break right, that’s a World Series team, but there are a good number of question marks

    I think it's about the length of the contracts. A lot of owners are not willing to sign players for a lot of years. If this was 5 years ago both Machado and Harper would be signed already. There are a lot of free agents still unsigned. It's been said that their could be another work stoppage at the next CBA. A lot of players are becoming first time free agents at 30-33 like Judge, Sanchez, and Didi. deGrom of the Mets won't be a free agent until he's 33. Sportrac has Judge's market value at $26.7 million. deGrom at $32 million.

    So you might see plenty 1 or 2 year deals

    Report: Machado expected to land deal worth $220-$270 million
    4h ago
    Rob Tringali / Major League Baseball / Getty
    LOS ANGELES CA - OCTOBER 28 Manny Machado 8 of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts after striking out in the fourth inning during Game 5 of the 2018 World Series against the Boston Red Sox at Dodger Stadium on Sunday October 28 2018 in Los Angeles California

    The Manny Machado sweepstakes might be getting too pricey for the New York Yankees' liking.

    Machado is expected to receive a contract in the range of $220 million-to-$270 million over "probably" no more than seven years, sources within the Yankees organization told Wallace Matthews of NY Daily News.

    The Yankees continue to be linked to the 26-year-old - and he appears to prefer a move to the Bronx - but there is no guarantee the club will sign him if his deal reaches the top end of the seven-year, $270-million figure, according to Matthews.

    New York seemingly already has a contingency plan, as it signed Troy Tulowitzki on Jan. 1, who is expected to play shortstop until Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery.

    Tulowitzki said he would like to play with Machado on the left side of New York's infield and it's been reported the signing won't stop the team from pursuing the four-time All-Star.

    In addition to the Yankees, the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox are reportedly serious contenders in the Machado sweepstakes.

    I think it's about the length of the contracts. A lot of owners are not willing to sign players for a lot of years. If this was 5 years ago both Machado and Harper would be signed already. There are a lot of free agents still unsigned. It's been said that their could be another work stoppage at the next CBA. A lot of players are becoming first time free agents at 30-33 like Judge, Sanchez, and Didi. deGrom of the Mets won't be a free agent until he's 33. Sportrac has Judge's market value at $26.7 million. deGrom at $32 million.

    So you might see plenty 1 or 2 year deals
    Wild the reports are the Yankees haven’t made an offer but the Phillies are about to be on their second. What do you think of all this? 
    I don't know anymore. If he really wants to come here he'll take less years. Some are saying they might offer a 4 year deal so he's a free agent again at 30. I would like him to be a Yankee. But we did win 100 games.

    sounds like an agent floating balloons out there to increase what the Phillies are going to pay

    Yeah.  Keep going back to the 100 wins.  They won 100 games with Sanchez and Bird contributing nothing, Stanton having a very good but not Stanton year, Sonny Gray being borderline terrible, Judge missing 6+ weeks and Severino falling off a cliff in the 2nd half.

    That said, they got surprises in Miggy and Torres being absolute studs, which I am not sure they can completely count on next year.  Also question whether Sanchez bounces back. I think he does, but they can't count on it.

    Machado just makes the lineup soooooo much more difficult and goes along way shoring up some of that infield defense, especially while Didi is out.

    I just don't think this team as it stands is better than that Red Sox team.

    Didi also missed some time but had his best year power wise. Also our bullpen helped a lot. Most of them are back

    Yeah, he also want into an insane slump after the April/May insanity. Forgot about that.

    Heyman has Manny still looking for $325 mil +.  Doesn't seem to be out there, but someone will get close to 3.  It's not what you want
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 28,038
    I haven't listened yet, but CC says he almost died.  Scary stuff.
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 28,038
    Well it was all but official that the Yanks were out on Machado before, now it really is...

    I don't know really anything about this dude, but a Coors Field hitter?
