Yankees Future Outlook

2017-2018 Offseason

Hire Carlos Beltran as Manager

Extend Didi Gregorius for 5 years and $75 million buying out the rest of his arbitration years and a couple years of free agency.


Giants get Jacoby Ellsbury (Yankees eat half of his salary)

Yankees get Ty Blach and Cory Taylor

Free Agency

Sign Shohei Ohtani and Kevin Maitan with remaining international signing pool money

Sign Jake McGee for 3 years and $18 million

2018-2019 Offseason

Brett Gardner and Chase Headley come off the books.


Diamondbacks get Starlin Castro

Yankees get Cody Reed, Jared Miller, and Victor Reyes

Free Agency

Sign Manny Machado for 10 years and $400 million



CF Hicks
3B Machado
1B Bird
RF Judge
C Sanchez
SS Gregorius
DH Ohtani
LF Frazier
2B Torres


C Romine
1B Austin
IF Torreyes
Uti Wade

Rotation (6 Man)



Warren (Swingman)
Green (Swingman)
McGee (Lefty Specialist)
Kahnle (Middle Reliever)
Betances (7th Inning Setup Man)
Robertson (8th Inning Setup Man)
Chapman (Closer)

The scary part is they still have Tate, Acevedo, Sheffield, Abreu, Andujar, Florial, etc to trade for another major piece but I don't see what else they need to improve. Lineup is stacked. Rotation is stacked. Bullpen is stacked. Most of the roster is young and controllable. They are truly set up for years to come.

I doubt Ellsbury is on the Giants' radar for CF help. He's 35, is paid through his age 37 season, and isn't a particularly outstanding defensive CF option anymore.

Even at a discounted price, the Giants likely wouldn't be interested. And certainly not if they have to give up Blach for him.

Your such a bandwagon fan, first you said they should resign Giardi, then you say Ibanez, now Beltran. You don't know what you want. I am not going to say much more other than the usual this is terrible, because don't learn or listen and post the relatively same nonsense each time. It is quite obvious you don't know what you are doing at this point.

I am the furthest thing from a bandwagon fan. I have been Yankees fan since I was old enough to understand the game and have never strayed from them. As for the managers. At the time, I thought Girardi would likely be back. Once it was confirmed that he wouldn’t be, I said Ibanez because he was one of the early names that was thrown around that I liked. I can’t still say Ibanez because he hasn’t even been interviewed. Out of the candidates that have been interviewed my preference is Beltran.

Now for the rest of the post. You say I don’t listen to the criticism but you never give any. You just say it’s horrible and don’t explain how to make it better. I don’t understand what’s so bad about it. Getting someone to take Ellsbury will be very difficult but Ellsbury going to the Giants has been thrown around by MLB Insiders as a possibility. They are considered the favorites for Ohtani. They are considered to be one of the favorites for Machado and Harper and I went with Machado because of positional need. I don’t understand what is so terrible.

I haven't criticized you lately. Just look at your past posts over the last year and half. I gave you plenty of criticism, but you continually posted the same thing over and over again. You slightly alter a trade and think its good. Yes it is going to be hard to get rid of Ellsbury. I will clarify what I mean as bandwagon fan, every person they interview, you jump on that bandwagon, Example, you first said Ibanez, then Beltran, whos next?

As I said I assumed they would keep Girardi. Once they announced they wouldn’t, Ibanez was one of the early names that floated around the media. So I used him. However now that interviews have been done and Ibanez didn’t get one, I went with one of the guys that has been interviewed. I’m not bandwagoning. I’m just trying to stay consistent with what people are saying at the time they’re saying it.

Tell me what I can do to make this post better? In terms of the trades and the signings.

Literally no Giants beat writers have even hinted at Jacoby Ellsbury as an option for the Giants.

As for your posts, how can we continue to offer you advice to make it better? Many people on this site have offered our share and you post the exact same stuff over and over again.

Now it’s you guys repeating yourselves. All you do is say you try to help me and I post the same stuff. What have you said to help me? You just say it’s terrible. Give me an actual opinion. Where could Ellsbury be traded and for what? Are the signings and the contracts realistic?

Also, I never said anything about Giants beat reporters. Just general MLB reporters mentioning a few teams the Yankees might be able to unload Ellsbury to. Just yesterday I read an article on some potential trades for some of the worst contracts in baseball on bleacher report. It had Ellsbury going to the Angels for a couple of low level prospects however I didn’t think that made any sense given they have big money tied up in Trout, Pujols, and now Upton. They already have an outfield of Upton, Trout, and Calhoun. First base and DH are tied up with Pujols and Cron. So I don’t see the Angels as a fit.

So you thought the Giants, who have a bunch of aging players on fat contracts would be a good fit?

I don’t think these are particularly terrible, unlike Batman, but this a concept people, myself included, have shared over and over. You just post the same stuff with different names.

Where could Ellsbury be traded? Unless the Yankees take on nearly all (not just half) of that deal, likely nowhere.

We are repeating ourselves because you don't LISTEN and don't get it.
