Screw a farm system says Brian Cashman. Have you paid any attention to how they've operated over the last couple of years? When's the last time you saw a 16 year old get traded? The kid hasn't even played a DSL game yet. Take a breath.


2.) 08 Nov 2019 11:57:32
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.


3.) 08 Nov 2019 18:08:37
The problem with Dominguez isn't necessarily from the Yankees standpoint - It's for Cleveland.


4.) 08 Nov 2019 21:45:54
Every year its the same nonsense, terrible trade proposals and free agent signings. We continuously tell you quantity over quality. I don't think they trade for Lindor, would it be nice for them, sure. Actually the free agent signings aren't that bad, but it looks like Gardner will be back and Maybin will not. And what happens to Greg Bird, Ellsbury?


5.) 09 Nov 2019 23:07:36
He forgot to tell us the Yankees will DFA Ellsbury.

Indians while LAUGHING. NO! . Yankee fans are the most arrogant fans that feel all others will bend over to help their team.


2.) 31 Oct 2019 18:31:21
You'd think after all these years of not acquiring every player they want, Yankee fans would realize teams aren't just handing guys over.

What is this, year 4 of suggesting the Yankees DFA Ellsbury?


2.) 16 Oct 2019 02:27:50
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?


3.) 16 Oct 2019 18:14:53
I think if the Yankees were going to DFA Ellsbury, they'd have done it by now.

You want the rest of it? I think the Indians will get more for Kluber, and most likely in the form of a younger, higher impact guy as opposed to your quantity-over-quality trade. Voit is 29, Holder is a run-of-the-mill reliever, Estrada is bench-depth, and Florial can't hit.

None of those guys, in any combination, are particularly attractive pieces for a guy like Kluber.

Andujar for Kluber would get talks moving. Or Deivi Garcia + Clint Frazier would probably do the trick.


4.) 16 Oct 2019 18:20:03
I also chose to "nit-pick" the Ellsbury thing because it's the only part of this that was worth commenting on.

The rest is trite copy pasta from you, just with a few names changed. Give us something new, and something with some proof that you understand reality and maybe you'll get the benefit of someone objectively interacting with your posts.


5.) 17 Oct 2019 00:15:40
Garcia and Florial gets it done, maybe Another throw in.

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.

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. Holder could be the Indians 8th inning guy in front of Hand but gets lost in the Yankees stacked bullpen.
