Mick, Iíve been going online several times a day hoping for a Machado  
yatqb : 1/11/2019 7:15 pm : link
signing, so I very much get your position. But if MM were asking for 35-40m a year for those 4 years, or something like that, I can understand going in a different direction.

As for Frazier, my guess is that he platoons with Gardy unless he wins the starting Lf job entirely.

arcarsenal : 1/11/2019 7:15 pm : link
Neither Harper or Machado seem to really fit. There just aren't holes in the places there need to be for them to make enough sense.

We can move things around and create them, but it's easier said than done.
Is Stanton going to play in LF far more often than we previously  
Strahan91 : 1/11/2019 7:17 pm : link
thought? Given what they're paying DJL (and his elite glove) and signs pointing to Tulo as the starting shortstop, Andujar may be at DH quite a bit.

yatqb, I as well have been living on Twitter but I guess we'll have to see what he actually signs for.If it is an outrageous sum,then we can cut Hal some slack.However,if it's within the realm of being a sum that the Yankees could have signed him for,Hal's in for a rough year from the fans!

Whoever this guy is, he seems to think there may be hope on Harper:

For the record, here on Jan. 11 at 2:59p, Iím not convinced the Yankees are out of the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.

He's just a fan speculating like the rest of us who happens to work for ESPN. I wouldn't get any hopes up. If they did sign Harper, it would be the biggest shocker of Cashman's career as GM. Bigger than Teixera. The media then said the Yankees were uninterested as did Cashman but at least then there was a gaping hole at first. [/quote]

LOL... the door closed to mega-deals like Harper's or Machado's after the Stanton trade was made. There's almost zero chance they are in on Harper.
LeMahieu is a launch angle prospect  
CromartiesKid21 : 1/11/2019 7:35 pm : link
He has elite EV and contact%, just a very low launch angle.

I expect the Yankees to make him lift the ball and turn him into Daniel Murphy 2.0
Mick, I agree.

No forgiving Hal if the eventual deal is at all reasonable.

Machado 2018:
.297 37 HRs and 107 RBIs - .538 slugging, 75 extra base hits

Andujar 2018:
.297 27 HRs and 92 RBIs - .531 slugging, 78 extra base hits

We all know that Machado is a superior defender and his offensive numbers should hold pretty steady moving forward.

Andujar's defensive issues are mostly throwing. He has a very strong arm and there is no reason that tweaks to his mechanics and footwork can't help him become a reliable 3B.

If Andujar hadn't emerged last year, signing Machado would have been a no-brainer. Right now, I'm not so sure...especially if they can sign another piece like Ottavino for the bullpen.



After this move, I am starting to hope that the Yanks will make Gardner the 4th OF, put Stanton in LF and make Andujar the DH.

I know they lose their best defensive OF in that alignment, but Gardner hasn't offered much with the bat lately. Stanton is average in the OF, but the difference between Stanton and Gardner is less than the difference between say, Torres and Andujar defensively at 3B.

DJ and Tulo is a really good defensive middle INF and at least good offensively. Andujar is all bat right now, so DH is fine.

Torres has enough bat for 3B and enough arm as well. Given that they have pitchers who need some good defense behind them, that MIGHT improve pitching outcomes just because they have a defense in that alignment that might get more outs per balls put in play.

Assuming that Sanchez's BABIP reverts to the mean, that would result in a substantive plus at C as well. That COULD conceivably mean more wins even with possibly less offense.



There's only one problem with this - where does Clint Frazier go?

He's got to play in the majors at this point. If we're not going to have a spot for him here, we'd need to deal him.


Frazier needs to go to AAA for a few hundred ABs- he missed almost the entire season last year. He needs to prove he is healthy and can stay that way- AND be productive- before we think about how he fits in NY.
.  
arcarsenal : 1/11/2019 7:44 pm : link
Even if Frazier starts the year @ SWB - how long are they going to keep him down there? He's 24 years old now and posted a .963 OPS there last year in like 50 games.

I don't think there's much left for him to learn down there - it's about time for him to be up with the big club if he's healthy.

They can't leave him in the minors all year, so eventually he's going to have to figure into this equation or they're going to have to trade him.
Frazier has one thing left to prove  
RasputinPrime : 1/11/2019 8:27 pm : link
that he can stay healthy. Otherwise he is in my view clearly the 4th best OFer on the team and deserves a shot to win the everyday LF job.

That and counting on Tulo to be the everyday shortstop, which I think is really risky given his age and injuries.

just makes me want Harper even more now. That lineup and the team depth would just be ruthless with him in it. I don't care if you have to try Stanton at 1B or even Harper at 1B or Gardner as the 4th OF. Whatever works.

It's not going to happen but I would love it.

If Harper played first, he would be a perfect target for this team. First base seems to be the biggest question mark outside of short pending Didi coming back from injury.

I'm pretty sure Cashman already said they're viewing Tulo as the SS while Didi is out. I think we'll see a decent amount of Torres at 3B while DJ plays 2B on those days.

I'd be very comfortable with Gardner as the 4th outfielder if the regulars are Judge, Hicks, Harper and Stanton as DH.

There is not one shred of evidence that NYY is in on Harper - not one. Actually the GM of NYY Brian Cashman made a public comment that the team has no interest in Harper.

Harper and Machado were NEVER really in Yankees plans unless they got a huge discount. We're no longer in the era of George Steinbrenner dollars, and the Yankees have to eventual pay all their young rising stars. The "evidence in our faces," has been there all along.
As best I can tell, no one is saying Harper will sign with the Yankees  
wgenesis123 : 1/12/2019 10:47 am : link
It would be a huge longshot coming in out of the darkness. The interesting thing about free agency is that longshots sometimes do come in out of the darkness. If the Yankees are hell bent on re-setting the luxury tax Machado and Harper were never in play unless they have a trade partner for Stanton hiding in the woods. The fans have been hoping for longshots since free agency began. The recent signings by the Yankees seem to preclude a Machado surprise. They don't seem to preclude the longshot of Harper to the Yankees and his lefty bat might just be a fit at first base. Who expected the Yanks to pursue Stanton last year? The tax and the crowded outfield would have seemed to preclude it. Cashman will take the phone call from Boras when the time comes for Harper to choose. I do expect that much.

Iím of the opinion that the Yankees arenít out on a player until that player is no longer on the market. They can be trying to trade Stanton. They can be sitting back to see which domino falls first. Just because twitter isnít reporting it doesnít mean it isnít happening.

Getting mad at people for discussing rumors is dumb. Doesnít matter if itís their rumor or someone elseís, everyone is speculating and drawing conclusions based on limited knowledge. Thatís what fans do.
If the tax was re-set last year that is my bad but how do you get  
wgenesis123 : 1/12/2019 11:12 am : link
a new model out of one year that included adding Stanton? So what is the new model? We get one Stanton per year. Sign me up for that as a fan. Absent a track record with the tax re-set, you really don't know yet what the model is.

arcarsenal : 1/12/2019 11:13 am : link
The Yanks will stay in touch with the agents and keep their eye on the market for both players.

I don't see either one coming here at this point - the positional fits just aren't lining up unless we create them via trade(s) - but there's always the off-chance that things crumble in other negotiations and NYY decide to become players at the 11th hour.

Until Machado and Harper are in Chicago and Philadelphia... or anywhere that isn't the Bronx, it's not completely off the table. Just highly, highly unlikely.

He's not here to sit. Then again, he's the type of players that we are missing. We can't have all flashy, all-or-nothing hitters throughout the lineup, but I just don't like the position fit.

I understand that we can't rely solely on homegrown players, but as much as I hate the thought of dishing out mega contracts, I hate passing over our own for middling free agents even more.

Let's give Andujar another year at 3B first, he may surprise us with his improvement in defense.

This signing is basically an exercise in not committing long-term to a mega free agent contract and leaving open the playing time and money for home grown talent.

I remember arguing who was better Mantle or Maris. Also who was better Mantle or Mays? How long can you do Mantle or Mays today without the race card getting thrown into the argument. It wasn't black or white in my neighborhood as a kid. It was Met fans vs Yankee fans driven by the loyalty and passion for your team and that was fun. There was no internet so it was face to face. you could not get nasty with impunity like the internet, you would get punched in the mouth. You could not google stats on the internet, you looked at the stats on the back of baseball cards. If you did get in a fight you did not harbor ill feelings like on the internet today. You ended up being the best of friends. Sound crazy, well it is true.

TheMick7 : 1/12/2019 11:47 am : link
as "Ridiculously Versatile" & I know as a Yankee employee he has to drink the Kool Aid, but the guy is a 2B,period! What I don't find any of the reporters questioning is the effect this has on Gleyber Torres.He's your top prospect/rookie from last year (I know some will argue Andujar but ?) & finally,after jerking him around in the minors,playing him at 3B,SS & 2B,the Yankees seemed to settle into the belief that 2B was his best position(some of you will argue it was because Didi was already at SS but whatever).He was good but sometimes shaky as any kid would be getting acclimated to a position. I was hopeful this year he would get a full season under his belt & with that,would become a stellar glove at the position. Now,with the addition of DJ(a 3 time GG winner), it seems Gleyber will become the movable piece in the infield,moving to SS when Tulo needs a rest or becoming the SS (until Didi returns) if Tulo craps out.And,I've even read that he could see some time at 3B,predicated on Andujar's performance. Unless there is still a trade that Cashman has planned,Gleyber will get jerked around again-not something you really want to do to your top prospect/rookie!

the versatility angle so hard with him. He's played 245 innings at 3B. Not a lot but not bad. Then 4 innings at SS and 13 at 1B. Okay, that's... not good. He'll probably be making mistakes at those positions due to lack of experience alone. If the guy is an elite glove at 2B then let him do his thing there for the most part this season and let Torres move to SS and 3B when he needs to. Torres has probably played 3B about as much as LeMahieu has.

I mean, I'm sure the guy can pull off the other infield positions well enough in a pinch but I don't think we should be seeing him bouncing around from position to position all season. Just let the guy play great defense at 2B. That's what he knows and he has been doing it for years. If injuries happen and they need him at 1B or something, so be it. But the way I see it, right now the best option defensively is Torres at 3B and LeMahieu at 2B.
If Gleyber is as good as we hope he is, others will make way

for him. It just may take a little time.
You don't think the Yanks will keep Gleyber batting 9th

for his career, do you? Its kind of like when Mariano was pitching the 7th and 8th inning. That wasn't his future.

taking Severino to an arbitration hearing over less than a million dollars. Seems unnecessary and hopefully this one doesnít get ugly.

James Paxton and the Yankees settled for $8.575M, avoiding arbitration. Yankees signed all their arb-eligible guys except Luis Severino. Betances ($7.25M), Bird ($1.2M), Didi ($11.75M), Gray ($7.5M), Hicks ($6M), Kahnle ($1.3875M) and Romine ($1.8M) were the others.

to NYY coming from?

Who is even discussing this as a possibility - source?

The way it looks now is Machado to the White Sox and Harper to Philly.



So they canít be negotiating with him because you havenít heard of it through the media?!



There is not one shred of evidence that NYY is in on Harper - not one. Actually the GM of NYY Brian Cashman made a public comment that the team has no interest in Harper.

But people like you need to conjure bullshit and fantasy up to make the internet a better place...



Youíve obviosuly never followed the Yankees before. Or sports at all.


Okay 12/18 Dupe... What was your previous handle/s?
