Totally fine with it.  Feels like a precursor to something else, and it basically means Stantons contract (with Castro and Headley off the books) is paid for.

Yanks now have somewhere around 25-30 million to spend and STILL stay below 197.  They need a starting pitcher, a third baseman, and a 2nd baseman.  You have to figure Gleyber Torres fits into one of those spots.  They should be able to get some quality help at the remaining 2 positions with that money.

Same... never have been a fan of Headley despite his grit. Well it was more I was just mad at that ridiculous contract they gave him.

I think Torres will play second... and they are looking at Drury from Arizona to play third maybe.

I'm holding out hope they could maybe trade Frazier in a package for Cole and put him right up there at the top of this rotation... and I think Frazier could be an all star...so I don't really want to trade him, but I think the corner outfield spots are going to be occupied for a while....

I feel like the Yanks robbed the Marlins, blind, and should be sending Jeter a Thank You card and a nice fruit basket.  I get Miami just couldn't handle the contract, but....ye gods......



I had to chuckle reading that line with Jeter's history of gift bag/baskets...

If they somehow, someway, by some miracle, pulled off a trade for Machado to play 3rd....they won't, I'm pretty sure..but if they did?

Happy for you guys with Stanton, should be fun in the Bronx next year.

Cards landing Ozuna was a helluva cool consolation prize, the dude can flat out mash.

Dealt from organizational strengths so no worries on that, they're flush with pitching and outfielders and the herd had to be thinned at some point.

Nice gesture by the StL brass getting Piscotty to Oakland to be near his mom who's been diagnosed with ALS, sorry to see him leave but there's bigger things than baseball.
