Thread: Yankees 2017-2018 Hot Stove

    Wow! Schwarber for Bentances is a win, win for both teams. This is a Trade that I could see happening. Helps both teams, and DH for Schwarber. In your Park, that would be scary.

After game 2 in Cleveland, I wasnít tooting the same horn. But his team came to his rescue and that shows that they have his back, which is huge.
    You are indeed the Stealth Bombers.

    Can you imagine a scenario of Yanks getting Schwarber, and in a year from now getting Harper. Holy_hit.

    Is the way I see it, both will benefit with the change, Cubs need a closer and Schwarber bats is a plus everywhere, Betances has some things to work on his mechanics but has the goods to be a closer he only needs a pitching coach who can help him fix his delivery and stay consistent, Schwarber need to work in his swing, some time in the minors could help him big time, imagine a lineup of Judge, Bird, Sanchez and Schwarber ???? as a yankee fan I can dream about this. We might add Ellsbury and 2/3 of his salary to help them, he's still valuable in the field and was having a good season before his concussion.

    I know is wishful thinking but you never now, Theo and Cashman always had a good working relationship, hope it happens

    The Yanks have an interesting way of doing business - the contracts of both Girardi and Cashman expire October 31 and there's no official word yet on either of them. Cashman will be back obviously. He has been one of the best in the business recently.

    What's a little odd is that if in fact the Yanks don't plan on bringing Girardi back they're watching the pool of managerial candidates shrink. Maybe they already have their guy.
    I will be very surprised if Girardi isn't back with the Yankees.

    Me too, but then again, nothing surprises me with this Yankees squad.
    The rebuild is complete.

    That's because you don't live in NY.

    I keep hearing about the Yankee getting an analytical manager. Girardi was an analytical manager. He had his binder which had every split known to man and up until we got all those relievers. Iím anticipating that we will get a manager with Yankee minor league experience

    Let the hot stove start. QOís are due within 5 days of the end of the season. I donít think the Yanks or the sox have any notable FAís that are eligible for the QO (I think Tanaka has a clause saying he cannot get a QO if he opts out and CC isnít getting one). Clearly Boston will exercise options on Sale and Kimbrel.

    The big free agents are out there and while I expect Boston to be in on a hitter, the question is, which one? Do the sox deal for the younger Stanton or do they shell out for the late bloomer in Martinez. Do the Yankees add anyone to the rotation if Tanaka stays put? If Tanaka opts out, do we try to re-sign him or do we go with Darvish or Arrieta? Do we deal for a pitcher who has yet to materialize on the trade radar? Who do we add to our young lineup? The questions are far more vast in Yankee land. The sox have their team mostly set and with some money and limited prospects, theyíre looking at either buying a player or ďtradingĒ for a big contract like Stantonís. For NYY, we can literally do anything. Itís intriguing but also much more difficult to predict. Enjoy everyone.

    MLBTR has us losing Tanaka, signing CC for 2 years $24 mil and signing Alex Avila for 2 yrs $18 mil? I get the Avila signing, but thereís no way we let Tanaka walk and donít replace him. Iíd say Tanaka and CC walk and we replace one rotation spot with a top starter

    Why not re-sign Sabathia?

    Iíd rather get rid of a guy a year too soon than hold them for a year too long. CC had resurgent stuff this year, hence he had a good year. Can his old, fat body maintain that uptick for another season or two? If he can, then yeah, sign him. But I donít know if he can do that and stay on the field. This is the same guy who contemplated retirement in July when his knee flared again

  15. #45
    Would it really take a two year deal to re-sign CC?

    I bet he would be open to a one year deal of $12.-$15. mil.

    After all, he was thinking of walking away from the game.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."
