Do you ever give up? after 2 years this is not amusing at all. The Yankees don't need Bumgarner, and that is not enough for him. As for Abreu, they will be fine with Voit or Bird.


2.) 23 Mar 2019 04:35:00
You don’t think that’s enough for Bumgarner in a walk year?


3.) 23 Mar 2019 05:31:55
Batman, have you seen the injured list for New York? It's not starting out hot and they haven't even lost Paxton to an injury yet (don't worry, that time is near) .

Bumgarner (or really anyone who can pitch innings with a reasonable ERA) would be a god send right now in New York. That said, I don't the Yankees pay that price for him now.


4.) 23 Mar 2019 14:16:34
I've seen it, they will be ok. Have you seen their schedule for the first month? Only true challenge is the Red Sox and Astros. Yes anything can happen and they could walk out of the month under .500. Don't forget they signed Gio Gonzalez, while he is not Bumgarner, he is serviceable. They could trade for Bumgarner during the season, but I think they would maybe want to sign him to an extension, since that seems to be the new thing.


5.) 23 Mar 2019 21:25:54
Now's the time to trade for Bumgarner, not in July.

In July, the price will go up, as teams get more desperate.


6.) 24 Mar 2019 04:34:02
Do you see the Giants trading him though?


7.) 24 Mar 2019 22:10:48
In July? Absolutely.

Here we go again.

All of this puts the Yankees at a payroll of 270M next season (per Cot's Baseball Contracts) .

Also, are you really suggesting the Yankees sell of every bit of their farm system for two trades?


2.) 20 Jan 2019 01:46:19
The Reds would be absolutely mad if they gave both of those prospects for Gray. Take Shed Long. We got other infield talent.


3.) 20 Jan 2019 03:22:16
Whether you think they will do them or not, do you think the trades are fair or would they at least get the other teams attention?


4.) 20 Jan 2019 05:42:38
A) When he does these posts we should just ignore him.
B) No the trades are horrible.
C) You always do quantity over quality. Stop, Not one player will ever bring back 5 players, unless they are desperate like the Red Sox were with Sale.


5.) 20 Jan 2019 19:31:34
DFAing Ellsbury still means you have to pay him which puts your payroll at $310 mil, slow down and think about it next time bud.


6.) 20 Jan 2019 22:33:26
Florial, Frazier, Andujar, Pereira, and Holder aren’t quality? Andujar could have won rookie of the year. Florial is a top 100 prospect. Frazier was a top 100 prospect but had too many at bats to be considered a prospect but is still very young and talented with a lot of control. Pereira will be a top 100 prospect in a year and a lot of people project him to be better than Florial but he’s only 17 years old. Holder could be the Indians 8th inning guy in front of Hand but gets lost in the Yankees stacked bullpen.


7.) 21 Jan 2019 17:05:43
Then its to much of quality and quantity.


8.) 21 Jan 2019 20:59:40
So you actually think they’re giving up too much in these trades?

Who would you have 3rd while Gregorius is rehabbing? Bring Castro back to put right on the bench is a waste of space and money. It would be much cheaper for the Yankees to go and sign Neil walker for a 1 year deal to play short. Even better sign Tulo for a 1 year make or break season.


2.) 14 Dec 2018 01:52:52
If the three team trade between the 3 teams were to happen it would have already happened. It sounds as if it fell apart quickly. The Abreu trade isn't happening, the White Sox would want more. If they were going to DFA Ellsbury I think they would have already, or they could release him like the Blue Jays did with Tulowitzki. And finally 35 million is about right for Machado, just he probably wants 10 years.


3.) 14 Dec 2018 04:04:19
elite_beisbol, Castro would play second, Torres would play shortstop, and Machado would be at third until Didi came back from injury and then Castro would just be nice depth once he came back.

BATMAN!, I agree that the three way trade probably would have happened already if it was going to but I was just wondering if you thought the idea was good in principle. I only suggested the DFA for Ellsbury because he doesn’t have a spot on the team and he can’t just magically disappear so I didn’t know what to do with him. And I’m curious as to what you think the White Sox would want for Abreu. I think that’s a pretty good return. He’s not young, he’s a horrible defender and he’s a one year rental. Also, I’m sure Machado wants 10 years but he also really wants to be a Yankee and they aren’t willing to go to 10 years for him and I’m not sure anyone else is either after his postseason antics.


4.) 14 Dec 2018 07:55:22
Chicago is not trading abreu.


5.) 14 Dec 2018 12:48:27
waylon, they probably will trade Abreu at some point between now and July 31st. If they can get more prospects, they will trade him.


6.) 18 Dec 2018 00:18:59
The White Sox would take that in a heartbeat for one year of Abreu.


7.) 18 Dec 2018 20:37:27
Thank you Chi Sox.

Yankees-Indians Trade

Indians get Estevan Florial, Clint Frazier, Jonathon Loaisiga, Luis Medina, and Everson Peireira

Yankees get Corey Kluber

bwright0628

1.) 05 Dec 2018 04:22:49
This is weird that I'm saying this to a bwright post, but this is a little too much for Kluber.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 05:11:02
I agree, I was thinking that it was to much but wasn't going to say anything.


3.) 05 Dec 2018 14:29:26
I agree that it was too much but you guys always tell me not enough so I went overboard think you would think it’s about right. What would be a good change? I was thinking take out Frazier because of all of the concussion issues and add someone like Jonathan Holder. He was great for the Yankees out of the bullpen this year. He’s cheap, young, and controllable and the Indians are going to need bullpen help with Miller and Allen likely leaving. And Cleveland is looking to shed payroll so he would be very cost effective.

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 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.

bwright0628

1.) 29 Nov 2018 14:19:37
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.


 

 

15 Oct 2018 19:41:35
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.

The White Sox turned down better offers in the offseason. They certainly won't take that for Quintana in the regular season.


2.) 21 Mar 2017 11:32:40
exposfan, you claim the white Sox received better offers for Quintana in the offseason. I'd love to hear what they were. If that were the case than don't you think they would have done it? From my understanding the Pirates wouldn't include Glasnow, Meadows, or Taillon. The Astros wouldn't include Bregman, Martes, or Tucker. Just like the Yankees won't include Torres, Frazier, Rutherford, or Kaprielian. All for the same reason, Quintana is very very good but he is not an ace. Getting 5 of the Yankees top 10-15 prospects is a pretty nice haul considering they have either the best or second best farm system in the game depending on who you talk to.


3.) 21 Mar 2017 20:47:04
My wording was wrong, my apologies.

Their asking price for Quintana has been much, much higher than this.

Joe Musgrove, Francis Martes, and Kyle Tucker is what they asked from the Astros. It's clear they want a king's ransom for Quintana.

In other words, they asked for the #20 and #35 best prospects in all of baseball (per MLB. com) . The offer you're suggesting is the #47 prospect and a bunch of throw-ins.

You might think it's worth it, but clearly the White Sox don't. (By the way, there are 10-15 other teams who could top that offer) .


4.) 21 Mar 2017 20:48:05
Also, consider this from Ken Rosenthal:

"Over the past three seasons, Quintana has averaged a fWAR of 4.9. His 14.6 fWAR since 2014 ranks eighth among pitchers in that span, just behind Jon Lester and right in front of Johnny Cueto and Madison Bumgarner. In those terms, the asking prices for Quintana almost sounds reasonable. "

He's an ace. And people in baseball view him as one.


5.) 26 Mar 2017 15:10:09
Bwright, those teams wouldn't include packages of all those prospects TOGETHER not necessarily individually as a headliner. The only ones I've heard are off limits are Bregman and Meadows (understandably) .

SI just came out with their "Most valuable trade rankings" and Q ranks 28, only two spots behind Chris Archer. If you don't want him on the Yankees that's fair but someone is going to pull the trigger before the deadline this year and you better believe a top 25 prospect will be headlining that package.

Florial, Frazier, Andujar, Pereira, and Holder aren’t quality? Andujar could have won rookie of the year. Florial is a top 100 prospect. Frazier was a top 100 prospect but had too many at bats to be considered a prospect but is still very young and talented with a lot of control. Pereira will be a top 100 prospect in a year and a lot of people project him to be better than Florial but he’s only 17 years old.
