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.

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.

That Greinke trade is straight up awful. Maybe your worst yet.


2.) 26 Nov 2018 06:05:55
Just stop already, you keep proving that you don't know what you are doing. If Greinke was going to be a Yankee, he probably would have been one years ago. But they have never had any interest in him.


3.) 26 Nov 2018 18:31:15
Greinke’s contract minus Ellsbury means Greinke is worth about 16M a year.

To get Greinke at that cost, the Yankees have to include a very, very good prospect. Think someone like Loaisiga or Florial.


4.) 27 Nov 2018 00:38:13
thestatbook, you are not taking into account Greinke’s third year at $34 million when’s Ellsbury only has two left at $22 each. That counts for a lot. And Holder can be a dominant cheap controllable reliver for them for years. Voit can fill in at first base for them if they trade Goldschmidt until they get a long term answer. And Kahnle is a high upside voice back candidate for their bullpen woh doesn’t make a lot of money either. I don’t think that’s a horrible return.


5.) 27 Nov 2018 15:56:59
Its terrible. Again, your worst yet.

The Yankees get Greinke at about 16M a year after you balance his contract with Ellsbury. That’s insanely valuable, even at Greinke’s age.

You don’t trade value for guys who are hurt (Ellsbury), DFA candidates (Holder), reclamation projects (Kahnle) and placeholders (Voit) .

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.

Yankees All-Prospect Team

I'm including Sanchez, Bird, Severino, Austin, and Refsnyder because they are still really young and none of them have even played a full MLB season.

Position Players

C-Sanchez
1B-Bird
2B-Mateo
3B-Andujar
SS-Torres
LF-Frazier
CF-Rutherford
RF Judge
DH-Austin/Refsnyder

Rotation

Severino
Kaprielian
Sheffield
Adams
Abreu/Acevedo

Is this the most impressive group of young talent in the MLB? Of course that's not to say they'll all pan out because that's impossible.

bwright0628

1.) 08 Mar 2017 11:51:54
Looks like a really good team. Maybe they'll win their 30th World Series with this team.


2.) 14 Mar 2017 04:35:09
The fascination with Rob Refsnyder is puzzling. There were almost know scouts who actually thought he had the tools to be a great prospect.

Now, he's almost 26, and he has done nothing and continues to be on the outside looking in.

Moral of the story: quit roping him in as some great prospect. He never was. He never will be.


3.) 14 Mar 2017 14:56:51
exposfan, I don't think Refsnyder is remotely near a top prospect. He is the worst prospect listed here easily. He can't defend at any of his positions and lacks other basic skills as well. However he has shown the ability to hit at every level he's been on so I figured it was a toss up between him and Austin for DH who also doesn't have a true position. This is just my idea of the Yankees All-Prospect Team. I didn't say all of them were elite.

Moral of the Story: Relax.


4.) 15 Mar 2017 01:02:44
I never said "top prospect". I said quit calling him a "great prospect". He's a career AAAA guy. It just puzzles me why every Yankees fan lists him as some future asset. He'll be DFA'd before the season ends.

2.) 18 Dec 2016 12:29:47
BATMAN! your comment is stupid since never in any of my posts have I had the Yankees signing all the major free agents. Just a couple of minor fillers. Like they are in desperate need of rotation help and Ross offers a low risk high reward option. Also they have expressed interest throughout the Offseason in adding a lefty middle reliever and specifically been connected to a reunion with Boone Logan.


Also I forgot to add Mike Napoli to my list who I believe will go back to the Indians.
