Yankees Extension Candidates

The Yankees have a lot of players that could be extension candidates before Spring Training rolls around. Not saying all or any of these happen but here is what I think some extensions might look like if they were to happen.

James Paxton- 4 years $80 million

Masahiro Tanaka- 3 years $45 million

D.J. LeMahieu- 3 years $60 million

Aaron Judge- 8 years $240 million

Gary Sanchez- 5 years $100 million

Gleyber Torres- 10 years $250 million

So after this season with all that combined with Cole, Britton, Chapman, Happ, and Hicks they payroll will be 226 million, actually with Stanton 248 million and that is not including Gardner and others. They could be pushing 300 million.


2.) 21 Jan 2020 04:16:59
I doubt the Yankees make any extensions when they are already 25+ million over the luxury tax.

. sending out the trash for gems isn't going to work for any team attempting to make a deal with the NYY's.


2.) 08 Jan 2020 17:07:49
More copy pasta.

That Hader trade is really bad. There's a zero percent chance the Brewers would even consider the idea. I don't know why the Brewers would want J. A. Happ, let alone have to pay him anything, or a guy (Estrada) who is a younger version of Hernan Perez, who the Brewers didn't even tender a contract to.

Why would the Brewers even consider that Hader trade? They have to take on an underwater contract AND get marginal prospects for an elite reliever?


2.) 01 Jan 2020 18:43:05
How about a trade where NY doesn’t give up literally their entire farm system?

One they resigned Gardner, don't know why you don't want them to keep him. You need to stop playing to rumors tying them to players like Lindor, etc, they don't have infinite money. As I told you, you can probably find articles/ stories linking them to any player. I think Higashioka is out of options and can't be optioned.

The Yankees would have to pick up half (if not more) of Happ's 2020 salary and also his 2021 option if it vests.

I can see the possibilities of these extensions but I think they will be more inclined to extend Judge, Torres, and Sanchez over Tanaka (injury prone) Paxton (injury prone) and LaMahieu (possible decline)

Jay Bruce and Ian Kinsler shouldn't even be discussed when it comes to top 10. That alone makes this awful, but the fact that you missed so many great players shows you don't really follow baseball

Players missing that shouldn't be

1B Matt Carpenter
1B Jesus Aguilar
2B Ozzie Albies?
2B Scooter Gennett
2B Whit Merrifield
SS Trevor Story
LF Eddie Rosario

SP Justin Verlander

I'd love to hear your opinions.

Are you talking about putting together the best possible team to go out and play next season? If so, you're pretty much spot on.

If you're talking just this season's performance, I'd find it very hard to keep Verlander out. There's really nobody who deserves to get left out on the list you've put together either though. I might put him in instead of Kershaw, but they're neck and neck.

For second base, Altuve was great again, but I'd give the not to Ramirez. He had a fantastic season.

Other than that, it's really hard to argue with much of that list. I might say Miller off the pen, because he had a bad/ injured season. But again, if I'm just looking for the best guys out there and not the best 2018 season, I'd be taking him.


2.) 29 Nov 2018 17:59:35
I think there are several bullpen arms whose stock is trending upwards I'd rather take. Guys like Josh Hader, Jose Leclerc, Blake Treinen, Edwin Diaz, Felipe Vazquez.

I'd also probably take Freddie Freeman at 1B and find a way to put Jose Ramirez in there. Honestly, I think he takes Altuve's spot at 2B.

Everyone think the Yankees should and will trade Sonny Gray this offseason. I think they should hold on to him and bring him into spring training with a clean slate and give him one last shot. There is no point in trading him now. They need rotation help, he's cheap, he's talented, and his value will never be lower. I say give him one more shot but don't count on him as a main stable and maybe he rebuilds some of his trade value if given a shot.

Does anyone agree with me?

bwright0628

1.) 15 Oct 2018 22:24:39
Very rarely are GMs this forthright about a player before the offseason even begins.

Expect him to be good as gone.


2.) 16 Oct 2018 02:01:25
Cashman went out and said he's going to trade him, saying a change of scenery is necessary. They did give him one last shot with a spot start in August or September and stunk it up.


3.) 16 Oct 2018 08:23:03
I didn’t ask you to repeat what Brian Cashman said. I read the same articles you guys did which was what led me to this post. I disagree with what Brian Cashman and everyone else is saying and wanted to give my own perspective and see what you guys thought. I think Cashman is a brilliant GM and I agree with him the majority of the time but I happen to disagree with him about what to do with Sonny Gray. I know how he feels. I’m asking for your personal opinions not for you to reference an interview with the Yankees GM.


4.) 16 Oct 2018 19:25:58
Sonny Gray in New York is a lost cause. Its time for them to move on. The trade hasn't worked for Oakland either. Mateo took steps back, Kaperlian didn't even throw a pitch this season and Fowler came up stunk.


5.) 16 Oct 2018 22:04:21
The A's still have a chance to turn those players into something. Whether it's development or a trade.

The Yankees aren't going to get much more than a couple trash bags for Sonny Gray.

I guess maybe New York could see if he's useful again, but I'm not sure it's worth the risk. He's been horrible in New York.

And now I just read an article linking Hader to the Yankees. So now all three of these players have officially been linked to the Yankees in some capacity. I’m not just pulling it out of nowhere. It gets talked about on sports sights and I try to predict what I think a fair deal might look like. I’m not just saying they’re going to get every good player available.

I go for fits. Not just big names. Which is why I don’t have them going for Bryant or Betts. They have been linked to Lindor to fill the hole left by Didi. Hicks is out for a big chunk of the year and Gardner can’t be counted on to repeat his production at age 36 especially if the scale back the baseball juicing. Marte makes sense as a one year rental to provide some speed and on base skills to the lineup and plays a great CF. As for Hader, that one may be more far fetched but the Yankees seem to add a major bullpen piece every offseason now out of nowhere and he is young and under control so he provides some insurance when Kahnle is a free agent after this year and if Betances doesn’t come back the same.

When is the last time a player like Lindor has been available on the trade market at his age? They need something to put them over the top of the Astros in the American League. A 16 year old isn’t helping them win the World Series this year. I’m all for a strong farm system. That’s how they have the majority of their team. But they have so many positions held down cheaply with really good players because of it that it is time to cash in what they have left in the system and make a move to put them over the top. They built this team to win a World Series, not just come close every year.

That’s all you got to say? What else are they going to do with him? He hasn’t played in two years. And if you remember I used to suggest trades for him exchanging salary dumps but obviously that’s no longer an option so what else is there? He’ll never play a game for them again. That’s the least significant part of the post and the only part you commented on because you had to not pick something. What about the rest of it?
