    Kicked to the curb.

    For me, this opens the door for B.Harper. The Yankees are going to need a left handed bat more than anything else. They will sign Harper for LF, play Torres at SS, and find a temporary player at 2b until Didi returns. The Yankees OF will consist of Harper, Hicks, and Judge, with Stanton at DH.

    I can't figure out if the Yankees plan to keep Andujar at 3b, trade him, or move him to 1b?

    I hope the Yankees can't/don't sign Harper and Machado. Harper will probably cost 300 million at a minimum and there will be competition for Harper as well as Machado.

    I doubt Harper sees a $300 mil total contract (he’ll get close), but I definitely could see him raking in $30 mil plus per season in his first three seasons. I guarantee Harper gets a long deal structured with a high up front with an early opt out to make the AAV more palatable for the team while giving Harper another crack at FA before he turns 30. I can see a 10 year $260 mil contract with the first $105 mil coming in the first 3 seasons with an opt out. The final seven years and $155 mil is an insurance policy against injury or poor production

    I never root for any player to become injured.

    I scratched my head when Didi was acquired. Other than his speed, I saw no evidence that he could fill Jeter's shoes.

    Since then, somewhat like watching Bogey develop, I have watched Didi grow as a player. Last year was possibly a career year. At least as far as I could see from watching him play about 20 games.

    This year he slid.

    Still, this guy looks like a premier type player.

    I can't see the Yankees discarding him. He is worth too much when healthy.

    I hope Macholo does not end up in the Bronx. I have enjoyed not watching him play.

    Seeing that punk-ass puke in pinstripes will make me puke.

    "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."

    I hope the Yanks get Harper. He'll be your next Ellsury.
