7. C Gary Sanchez
8. 1B Greg Bird
9. 2B Gleyber Torres

Bench (When Everyone Is Healthy)

Marwin Gonzalez
Ronald Torreyes
Aaron Hicks

Starting Rotation (When Everyone Is Healthy)

1. Luis Severino
2. Dallas Keuchel
3. Masahiro Tanaka
4. Patrick Corbin
5. Lance Lynn

So the Yankees will have a payroll over over 300M?

2.) 13 Aug 2018 00:35:25
Okay, so it's not quite 300M, but let's break it down:

Gardner (FA) - Est. 12M
Machado (FA) - Est. 33M
Harper (FA) - Est. 35M
Stanton- 26M
Gregorius (Arb) - Est 14M
Judge- 750K
Sanchez- 750K
Bird- 600K
Torres- 600K

Severino (Arb) - Est. 5.5M
Keuchel (FA) - 18M
Tanaka- 22M
Corbin (FA) - Est. 15M
Lynn (FA) - Est. 12M
Gray (Arb) - Est. 8M
Green- 1M
Wilson (FA) - Est. 8M
Kahnle (Arb) - Est 3.5M
Betances (Arb) - Est. 8M
Robertson (Arb) - Est. 12.5M
Chapman- 17.2M

Dead Money
Ellsbury- 21.1M

Altogether, so long as I didn't miss someone, you're talking 266.5M in payroll. Most of that is new, lengthy contracts, and will only rise as Judge/ Sanchez/ Severino/ Torres get into arbitration years. So that's multiple seasons in which they'll be penalized with lower draft picks, significant taxes, and likely spark more limits in the next CBA bargaining.

It honestly doesn't matter how your MLB The Show lineup plays. The Yankees won't pull that off.

So you think the Yankees are going to spend almost a $1 billion on 4 players (Machado, Harper, Corbin, and Keuchel) . Not happening. I think they sign 2 of those players, Either Machado or Haper, then either Corbin or Keuchel. Next there is ZERO chance Sonny Gray is on the roster next year. I think Hicks gets traded, and I am not entirely sure Gardner has option picked up. Judge will probably get a big raise in salary, not that $750K you predict. David Robertson is a free agent, I don't see him coming back. I also predict Romine will be back as the backup catcher.

4.) 14 Aug 2018 20:13:32
If the Yankees are in the position of signing all those players, they won't give him a raise. They don't have to. He's not even arbitration eligible this offseason.

5.) 14 Aug 2018 20:16:57
Also, in my estimations, I left out the bench players. So add another 15-20M to that final total.

I think this is as likely as the Yankees winning the AL East at this point.

6.) 02 Sep 2018 23:41:42
Wait, Hold On, I Am Replacing Lance Lynn, With J. A. Happ, In The Rotation For Us.

7.) 03 Oct 2018 00:53:41
Happ and Lynn will make almost the same amount. Happ will probably make slightly more. So that doesn't help.
