Your crazy, enough said. I am done trying to explain to you why your posts are bad.

BATMAN!, I'd say it's a step in the right direction.

Most of these aren't horrible, as they understand the needs of other teams, but they also aren't great, either.

The Giants don't need another 34-year-old outfielder, and especially one they'll still owe $31MM going to his age 37 season.

What makes them so terrible? Headley is a one year rental for the Mets to provide insurance at 1B if Smith needs more time to develop and 3B since you can’t really expect anything about Wright. Shreve is a nice young cheap lefty to replace Blevins who they would be giving up. Blevins fills the only hole in the Yankees bullpen which is a reliable lefty other than Chapman who is the closer.

Gardner would provide the Orioles with the lead off hitter they have been lacking for years and also some stability at the corner outfield spot. He is a gold glove LF coming off of a 20-20 season on a reasonable contract. The Yankees benefit from shedding the salary to get under the luxury tax threshold that they are intent on doing as well as clearing everyday spots for Hicks and Frazier. Rickard can serve as a nice fourth outfielder and fits along with the youth movement.

As for Ellsbury, I don’t think there is a such thing as a good fit for him and the Yankees may very well be stuck with him but I figured he finished the final six weeks of the regular season very strong and that if the Yankees are enough money that he could at least be an upgrade for the Giants who will probably try to make some tweaks and go for it one last time.

They Yankees also seem to be considered the favorites to sign Otani by many analysts.

Any ideas on how I could make this better?

Wright isn't expected to be the 3B, Flores is.

And why take on an expensive 3B/ 1B option that also costs you a decent LH reliever? If they are concerned for Smith's production, they could sign someone like Mitch Moreland and have a warm body who'll fill in for much cheaper.

I think Ohtani winds up In Seattle or Texas.

I guess. Who needs him when you have Avisail Garcia?

Seattle would just trade him like everyone else they have.

I hope the Rangers can get Otani.
